PAQBIB BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.V COURIER NEWS MONDAY, JULY ID, 1940 Mobile Bean Defeat Barons vi nM i i^£ hem! i£flm Fi«btt»g Hard for First Division Berth 'ATLANTA,' pa., July is. <UP>— The Mobile Bears' dream of a first division berth In the Southern Association ^approached reality today with [ nestling only two and one-half games from fourth place largely because of the cousinly attitude of the Birmingham Barons., The Bears clubbed the Barons Into submission 8 lo 6 yesterday for the llth time in 12 starts against the North Alabama entry this season. Roy Nichols' two-nui homer sparked a five-run second Inning that offset n trio of Birmingham tallies in the same frame and enabled Joe Powers to go on lo victory with a little relief from Paul Minner in the ninth. Because of n pre-game downpour the contest was so delayed that a scheduled nightcap was called after three scoreless innings. The single victory put the Bears one game back of the fiflh-place New Orleans Pelicans and two and a half behind Nashville in Ihc fourth slot. Pelican SUidium in New Orleans proved just the spot for the Icaguc- leading but slumping Atlanta Crackers to get buck on the beam as big Bill Aycrs turnec\ In his. 10th victory, a neat six hit shutout as the Pelicans bowed 7 to 0. Lloyd Geai- hart's homer started the scoring with a ^homer arid the Crax sent Jesse D s amia to the locker room with a five-run burst" In the fifth. The same weather conditions that curtailed the Mobile program delayed proceedings in New Orleans nnd darkness caught the nightcap before the first inning was over. The Memphis- Chicks, who have been see-sawing with Chntfanooga for the league runner-up position, were back in second place after walloping the Lookouts in a doubleheader, 3 to 1 and S lo 2. The Chicks got four-hit pitching from Byron Cook in the opener while Elmer Ripple scattered'"nine blows effectively In the nightcap. The Nashville Vols traveled 14 innings to take an opening game from Little Rock, 4 to 3. The Vols twice broke the deadlock and the Pebbles .evened it up before the finish came ln s thc Hlh. Lee Anthony, who relieved Leo Twanly In the 12th, received credit for the victory and Wes Flowers was (he loser. Tlie Travelers bounced back to take the nightcap 3 to 0 when Lefty Al Hazel horse-collared the Vois on three blows.
