Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights at 6:30 P. M. at the Case Stadium are the practice times,- with a sharp call sent out to all member- of the team. Neither team did anything in tlu first inning, Cheshire inking the lead in the second on'one run and iollowing it up in the fifth wit'-i three more. Ellis Rogers. Cheshire right fielder, singled as did G. Dewey and Benson was purposely passed tc fill the sacks. M. Dewey then singlec scoring Rogers and Gentnei. next sticker, was safe on a fleloer's choice as G. Dewey came romping home to be declared safe after Catcher Joe Norman had tagged him ant; in his hcste to try for a double play on the field, dropped the ball when he was n-.aking ready to throw. Benson then scored on a sacrifice fly to t'ne outfield, winding up Cheshire's scoring lor the afternoon. Towners Get Ran Canandaigua's first run came in the third when Angie Corino, Tov;n~ ev center fielder, doubled and wa knocked in by a single by Frankk- Turfure, who held down short.. Lenz: "eiounded out advancing Purfure to second from whence he scampered home when Garno singled and wa- tagged at second trying to stretch it into a double. Their third run came ui the fourth, Brand crossing the plaiter on Charlie D'Agostino's single over third. Two more followed in . tlw fifth on singles by Lenzi, McCarthy. and Allen. The game was dotted with spectacular plays. McCarthy making a beautiful shoestring catch of a line drive by Rogers. He caught it just above the clover, turning a couple of sommersaults and coming up with the ball tightly grasped for the put-out. Bud Allen also made an outstanding play when he raced from the foul line to right center to nab Centner's bid for a hit- D'Agostino made a nice play when he raced out to short right field near the foul line and caught a ball over his shoulder. in Nations: the regained SPORTS ROUNDUP Ellis Rogers caught a hard when Larry a clump of ball Garno~ lined one into 0 r ,, bushes.' Canandaigua is now tied with Cheshire in a deadlock for cellar position in the Powers and Vail Loop. Angie Corino waltzed off with batting honors with two doubles and a single out of five trips to the plate. Jimmy McCarthy got three out of four with D'Agostino getting two out of four. The rest of Canandaigua's 14 bingles were evenly divided. Summary: CHESHIRE ab r Benson, cf M. Dewey. ss . Centner, rf . Read. 3b . B. Pierce. If M. Pierce, c . - Montanyc. 1 . Rogers, rf . . G.

Famed in song and story fo r its baked beans and a tea party, the Hub City now shelters two baseball clubs that are busy making revolutionary gestures toward everyone else in both leagues. For instance the Bees, who have been stepping as high as a hurdler for the past month, swept through a doubleheader by 3-0 and 4-3 with the first-place Cincinnati Reds yesterday, though the victory had a bitter taste. They lost Eddie Miller, their sho:.'tstop possibly lor I:K: season, when he broke a small bone in his left ankle in a collision with Al Simmons. The two triumphs made it 16 wins in 21 starts fo^ the seventh- place Bostonians and" cut the Reds' down to a six-game margin over the field in the National League. Bill Posedel wielded the whitewash brush with a six-hit, five-strikeout job in the opener and then Jim Turner limited the leaders to seven blows. Red Sox Trim Tigers In Two The Red Sox, who proved the Yankees could be checked, stormed Detroit's ramparts for their llth and 12th straight victories 10 sir.. just six games back of the Yanks in the American League. The scores were 9-2 and 3-0 and Lefty Grove and Denny Galehouse got most of the credit. Grove aiiov.x-d oi:-: hiu- and got the benefit of Jimmy Foxx's 15th homer, and Denny came through with a four-hitter. The Tigers made 12 errors, eight in the first game, and four more to give the Sox two runs in the second. There were some other noteworthy performances 011 yesterday's program of doubleheaders to keep, the Boston from stealing ail the glory. In New York Morton Cooper of the Cardinals stopped the by now non-belligerent Giants with eight hits to win 3-1 as Joe Medwick stole home with an important run. Over in Brooklyn the Dodgers and Cubs traded tnird and fourth places twice. Chicago won the first game. 9-2. by combining 13 hits with some vf.ry ragged Brooklyn lieldir.s. Then a nice, relief job by Red Evans gave Brooklyn a 4-0 decision. Phillies And Pirates Divide The Phillies and Pirates split a twin bill on Morrie Arnovich Day although the league-leading hitter connected only twice in eight tries. Hugh Mulcahy pitched ihe Pnils to a 3-2 opening victory for his fifth win of the year and "then the Bucs won 7-3 when Lloyd Waner's single with the bases full touched off a six run rally in the seventh. Stirred perhaps by news of the champions' recent defeats, the season's largest crowd -- 63.064 -turned out at Cleveland to see the Yankees trim the Indians twice.! 5-2 and 8-3. Lefty Gomez and Marius Russo did some excellent mound work in holding the Tribe to a 13- I hit total, the Yanks ail fielded brilliantly and Tommy Henrich. a-j refugee from the Indians, poled out a triple, double and two singles. Chicago's White Six stayed in third place by downing the Senators. 3-2 and 6-3.

TITLE Guernsey, Seeded 2nd In Eastern Meet, to Seek That Championship NEW YORK (/P) -- A New Yorker still hasn't been able to win the New York State clay court tennis championship and the next problem to be settled by the racquet tourists is whether an easterner can take the eastern crown. Prank Guernsey, the intercollegiate champion from Orlando, Fla., and Rice Institute, retained tihe New York State crown yesterday when he routed Prank Bowden, veteran New York player, 6-3, 6-1, 6-1. Now he turns his attention to the eastern tournament at Jackson Heights, in which he is seeded second. . ·· · i '· v Bowden, the first New Yorker to reach the final of the state tournament since it was revived three NEW YORK (/P) -- Henry Pi-', years ago at the Seminole Club, card whose "frozen" face has beeniporest Hills, hardly was a match seen' at practically all the major j f or Guernsey.

Picard never had been able to lift the P. G. A. or the National Open title although he took plenty of other important events. Only three years ago he swore he never would take part in another match play tournament after he had failed for the third straight ; reached the fourth round.
