The Bears have looked like .a classy ball club for thc lasl week and they really operated In high year yesterday to cool off the Birmingham Barons' hopeful homecoming by taking two games, each through one big Inning. Ed Smolko. on« of Rickey's resuscitation crew who has shown flashes of promise, had thc Barons on his hip In the opener after a rough first inning. The home-club sot three tallies In thai frame but Smolko pitched scoreless ball the best of the way and his males fell on Rocky Stone for nine runs In the eighth, wrapping up a 10 to 3 victory.

In past years the National Leaguers liatl the pitchers, but the American League sluggers usually packed enough punch to offset tln-ir efficiency—in least that is the wav it happened in eight, out of \'i years. This j'car, however. It Is the .American Leaguers who have Ihe pitching aces and on thc strength ! thc mound staff they are 3 lo 1 favorites lo win, notwithstanding the fact that Ihe "clrenni-nanip" has been a hurlers' nightmare in the past. Aside from the American Lea- Hue's admitted pitching edge, there isn't a greal deal of difference between til Iwo squads. John Lent! won a holly contested match yes lord ay from "Doc" Callahan, steele, Mo., in the last ol thc first loiiud matches for . the championship of Blythcvi'ile Coun- Iry club.
