"He was just one lousy fly ball away from being a hero," Norman said disgustedly today of Nar- leski's 2-1, 10-inning defeat at Cleveland Wednesday. "Now Ihey can call us both bums if they want, but we'll ride this thing out together. We should have won it in the ninth." NARLESKI HAS suffered most in Ihe club's five straight 1959 losses. He has made four relief appearances and has been hit hard in all of them. The right - hander has been charged with two defeats. "We should have won the game in the ninth when we had runners on first and third and nobody out," said Norman. "Nine times out of ten Ray would have come home a ui'nner." "He's a pro. I haven't lost an ounce of faith in him." Norman can speak with some authority on Narleski.

The coach said doctors do not believe Mooty is in any danger. Mooty quit the team after the Baylor game last year, then asked to be reinstated. The team voted to readmit him. He missed the Texas Christian and Bice games. The Razorbacks opened spring practice this week.
