fAQBBU BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COUR1KR NEWS tracker Hurler Adds to Record Wednesday Win Puts ' Team Five Games Ahead of Lookouts. BY BURNS BENNETT VmHt* Press Sports Writer AT1ANTA, Ga., May 30. (U!>>— Southpaw Earl McGowan of the Atlanta Crackers was the proud possessor of eight victories todny with the season less than one-third gone and the odds in Joe's Fish Emporium were better than throe to one that MeGowan would wind up the Southern Association season with well over 20 wins. His wins represented exactly one- fourth of tlie leading Crackers' 32 triumphs and only two losses have been charged against, the ace left- hander whose record shows n solid string of low-hit, well-pitched games. Last night at New Orleans, McGowan let the Pels down with seven widely scattered hits to take a 5 .to 2 win for the Crackers 22nd victory out of their last 27 games.. The win widened the Crackers' lead to five full games. Home runs by Ted CIcslak In the second and Wcs Hamncr In Ihc fifth accounted for Ihe Crackers first two runs. A three-run rally In the ninth inning broke a 2-2 tie and gave Atlanta the game. The Crackers got only five hlt,s off three Pelican hurlers but made them count. Memphis Forces Ahead At Memphis, the Chicks climbed from filth place into third by trimming the Chattanooga Lookouts 5 to 3. Woodrow Crowson hurled the win for the Chicks and while he allowed 10 hits, three more than his mates got off Claude Weaver, was stingy In the pinches. At Mobile, the Bears held a field day at the plate and overpowered the Birmingham narons 12 to 0 behind the five-hit shutout pilch- Ing of Joe Powers. At Little KOCK ,ine Travelers were forced to go 10 Innings before eking out a 10 io 9 win over the Nashville Vols. The Travelers rapped out 17 hits while the Vols collected an even dozen. Nine pitchers, five for the Vols and four for the.Travelers, paradgd to the mound In the wild slugfest Bill Trotter got credit . for .the win nnd Lee Anthony • took the loss. Heinz Becker, new Vol fiist- bftseman, rapped out a home run in ' t the second inning in his first Southern Association appearance at the plate. ,;The, same series continue again tonight with'single games.

The ndmnnt, for 3-year-olds, geldings not eligible, one of the oldest nnd toughest, slakes In America, is most coveted because it puts the stamp of sill-around greatness on th c winner.
