(U!>) Except for an exceptional gent named Hal Newhouser, baseball's big-shot pitchers would have been just as happy today if the season could have started without an opening day. Newhouser, the Detroit ace, using thai s'aine old left-handed magic that has brought him so victories in the last three seasons shut uut the Browns at St. Louis' 7 to 0. on four hits. He struck out five and only one Hrownie, Vern Stephens, got an extra base hit a double. But just look what happened to the other major league hurlers who won 2(i or more gnmes season There were seven and all but one of them, Dave Ferriss of (lie lied Sox, drew an opening day assignment. And except.for Newhouser, all were batted out before the finish. At Cleveland, an all-time record major league opening day crowd of 55,014 turned out, hoping lo see Bobby Feller duplicate his 1040 feat pitching a no-hit, no-run game against the Chicago White Sox. Iiistend they saw Eddie Lopat pitch Chicago lo a 2 to 0 victory in which Feller wasn't around nl the finish Ilirce hits, 3 to 1, holding tlii'in (o one hit mill! the ninth and suik- ii'.u out six. the field . .~ topped Ington, 7 to 0, but It wasn't 20- gnme winner Tex Hughson who got the job done. flughson was a live- inning whirlwind, holding Washington hllless for that stretch, but faded fast and Rookie Harry Dovish came In to get credit'for the vic- I lory.
