For Ihe second other phases of the feud between strnieM Sunday, he put Ills left Bv WILLIAM TDCKKR United 1'ress Sports Writer ATLANTA. Oa.. May 20. (UP)A year ago Forrest Thompson found himself in' the same bush league where he had started out nine seasons earlier and he was bediming to wonder if he shouldn't turn to a different business lo feed the four hungry little Thompson mouths. Toduy, Thompson was the darling the Yankees and Red Sox. The arguments slill rage of course o*«r Ted Williams versus Joe DiMaggio as a hitter. Joe Gordon versus Bobby Doerr as a second baseman, and the Yankees against the Red Sox for the pennant. But any BoKton' fan will start a baseball filibuster at the suggestion that Chandler is better than Fcri'lss. Yankee supporters are just as vocal if th c Ferriss forces open a debate. On the record. It was hard to ] elbow grease on the pellet yesterday and blew down thc Mobile Hears on three scant hits as Atlanta stretched Its Southern Asso- cialion lead to two full games. Thompson's feat coincided with thc league's first no-hllter of the season, ji bob-tailed affair hurled by Lou Bevil of thc Ctmtlanoovn Lookouts as his mates sank the Little Rock Pebbles twice. He held thc Pebs hit less for six innings until | darkness stopped the panic which choose between the. Dixie right h»nders. Each pitched his third shutout victory yesterday In a day highlighted by line hurling. Chandler, lhc "Georgia Bulldog" snuffed off the Indians with three hits to win, 2 to 0 as Hie Yankees •won two at Cleveland. Charley .(Red) Ruffing, helped by DIMag- jrio's two-run homer, tossed a seven-hit 7 to 1 Yankee victory in the afterpiece. Ferris lopped Detroit 4 lo 0 on seven hl\ for his second straight shutout. However, Hal Newhouscr g»ve the Tigers a 3 to 1 second laune .Jour-lilt victory which reduced Boston's league lead lo four ?nd a half games over New York. Homers by Dick Wnkeficlrt and Jimmy Outlaw save him his victory margin. Pitching: Duel .Chandler's duel with Allie Reynolds was a stirring one. Lcadoff man George Sttrnwclss singled in the first and no other Yankee hit safely until Ihe ninth. Reynolds, who tried vainly to Ijveak up a double play with Gordon al second in the eighth, was nettled after a near fight with Ibc Yankee Wg man. He walked Tommy HMI- rich, Charley, Keller bunted safely Mid DiMaggio singled In the innr- £ftial run. Gordon drove in the cither with a fly. •-Washington took a firmer hold on fourth place with 4 to 3 and been held up an hour by showers. Thompson's Luck i'lmnilcs Thompson, n solidly built. 27- year-old southpaw, had almost ,1 record nm in thc tank towns he- fore he Ruined a slaying bcrlh wiih the Crackers. He .started out with the North Carolina State League, drifted through thc Bi-Statc nnd lhc Tliree-Eyc circuits and played a hitch with the Michigan State League before the Crackers acquired him—and farmed him back down lo the North Carolina Sta'.e League. To his home town, Moorcs- , vilie. no less. Thompson decided to stick it otit and his luck changed immediately. He began winning games In rapid succession and had racked up more Ihan 20 when the Crackers perked up and recalled htm. He pitched excellently for Atlnntn in thc lilt- ter part of the last season but this spring II looked like the bush league was cropping out In him again as lie got off to a poor start. But on Sunday. May 12, he came up with more stun" than he had ever shown, letting the Memphis Chicks down with one run and seven hits. and yesterday he was even hotter against Mobile. His record Is now three wins against three early season losses nnd Cuyler has made him a. fair-haired boy among his starters. Chicks-Vols Tied hi StiiiulhiKS After Thompson's 5 to 0 victory. thc second game of a doubleheader was washed out. The Crackers added half a notch to their lead as Memphis split n pair wilh Nashville and dropped into a tic with raincd-out New Orleans for second place.
