FRIEND Lack of potentiality nl the |)!nte cropped up ngah) In the tatting order of the Blythcville Giants us tlie losl a pair of eJilbition gnmc.s over the week-end. The louring House of Duviil aggregation defeated tlieui, 1-0, Saturday, while the Jackson Generals, of the Kilty l-engne, gained revenge for their licking Thursday night by coining from behind to nose out the Boboinen, G-5. Veteran .and rookie pitchers shared alike. Clyde "Spot" Heed and Willtam V. "Lefty" Alexander, the two home (owners, divided the hurling Jol) against the bearded boys, and although they yielded but six safeties between them, they were slmdod by O'Brien who gave the locals but five. Ell IWcrlich, Chicago, nnd Lewis Meyran. New York City, the tallest cliunkers on the staff, worked for the Boboinen In the Saulmth struggle, allowing nine hits with Meyran credited foi the loss. Manager Dutch Welch used the crnfty Glenn "Lefty" Dacus, former southern league soulh- pnw, Bud Hliineterger, nnd 1'ollj Cummhigs. As Cummlngs was on duty at tlie finish and the visitors broke tlie tie in tlie ninth, he wan designated- as tlie winning pitcher. Vets Impressive Making tcir first public apuenr- ance, Reed nnd Alexander showed plenty of stuff in holding the lien- ton Harbor aggregation to one run, nnd indicated they are headed foi n great season. Reed pitched the first five innings and was touchec for five lilts, three of them coining In the second when the IsraclHe. scored the only run of tlie game He walked one and fanned 4. A scratch lilt by Shortstop Lick, tin second batter to fnce Alexander was the only sign of a base knock off the left hnndcr. He also whiffet four and issued two bi\sc on balls The recruits, Peterlich nnd Mey ran, didn't do so badly, either. Tlv Generals rapped peterlich's deliver: for four hits and one run 1'iV'.' innuigs, three got on via the Ixis on balls route and three went dow on strikes. Meyran giive up onl five Jilts In lour frnincs but ha the misfortune of having thci: bunched in two innings. He strnc out four anil walked lliree. On! one run was earned by the Genera and that proved to be the big on Three successive hits manufactured the Hotixe of David tally. , Lick • singled to center and, with : the hlt-nnd-rim on, Tucker lilt perfectly behind the runner and the shortstop .ankled tt to third. Catcher Kellerslainmed one through the box on the flrsl pitch anil Lick came In. The Giants had a golden opportunity to knot (he count In the third only to have a double pli\y spoil It. Bou Woods, the new second baseman, singled down the third base line. Dvorak was called out on strikes. Dom Marcel punched one through short and third and Woods raced to third, But Ed Haguskus hit to O'Brien and a twin killing resulted. . Giants Show Power For the first time this spring the Giants showed evidences' ot plate power in losing to the Generals; Their eight hits represented almost double any of their previous exhibition efforts. Five were foi doubles, two by Joe ciirran, center- fielder, two by Steve Tramback . the pitcher converted into n Tlghi fielder, and one by Bobo. Woo* came through with a couple of hit, and Charles "Chuck" Oxley brok into the lilt column for the firs time with a single. Curran's pal of two baggers were his first safe ties, also. Peterlich's wlldness in tho fin, gave the visitors a one run Icac fter tossing out Dick Jones, lie limited Richmond In the ribs nnd nlked Miller. Richmond went lo ilrcl as Marasco attempted lo pick Im off second, lllshop lilt to Woods ho attempted to UB Miller coming own nnd then threw o first in hat everyone believed was n double lay. But the base umpire ruled lal Miller hnd not been touched, lichmond .scored on the play.
