Dallas Eagles Find Houston Buffaloes Tough To Handle By United Press The Houston Buffs remain the most stubborn of San Antonio's three challengers for the Texas League lead, and Sunday the Dallas Eagles found out the Buffs can be as hard to contain as the Missions have found them to be persistent. Dallas entered the ninth inning with a seemingly comfortable lead of 2 to 1—Jim Tugerson had thrown a no-hitter for six innings and his reliefer, Pete Burnside, had proved just as effective—but the Buffs jumped on the third Eagle pitcher, Rocky Contreras, and his successor, young Tommy Powers, for four run and the ball game. In other games, Fort Worth beat San Antonio 6 to 5, Tulsa edged Shreveport 2 to 1, and Beaumont won the first game of its twinbill with Oklahoma City 4 to 2, but the Tribe took the second 4 to 1. Contreras, who was charged with all of the ninth-inning Houton runs, also took the loss, his ourth straight. Jim Atchley, recently taken off the disabled list, pitched onjy one inning but got :he win. Ray Murray hit his 14th lome run of the season for Dalas in the sixth. Relief pitchers continue to be he big factor in the Fort Worth- San Antonio rivalry. Bill Diemer and Mel Waters each allowed only two hits in seven innings of relief work, but a walk by Die- Tier in the ninth inning gave the Cats their winning run. No pitcher on either club has now finished any of the eight games be- ween the two clubs this year. Tonight finds Beaumont at Oklahoma City, Shreveport at Tulsa, San Antonio at Fort Worth and Houston at Dallas for a double-header.
