PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, JULY 2, 1947 Hard Hittingi Yob Lose to Mobile 15-Hit Attack Good For Only Four Runs; Bears Collect Seven By Unlttd Press ATLANTA, Ga., July 2. CUP) — Nashville Vol Malinger Larry Oll- bert the erstwhile "wizard" of the Southern Association, was sure today that little Roy Boles, ace of lh« Mobile mound staff, had the Indian sign on his charges. Gilbert's much vaunted Nnsh- vilte power attack wasn't failing In th« least at Sulphur Dell park last • night. The Vol sluggers collected 15 - hits off small Roy and scored four runs, two by virtue of Al (Rubei Walker's to.veiing eighth innln? honor. But when the dust cleared, the league leading Hears had scored, seven runs by nicking Com Nashville twirlers for only 10 hits. Gilbert was pcrulcrcd, but Gilber 1 , was perplexed, b\it no of the Nashville hurlcrs, who was charged with the uncanny loss. The win boosted Mobile's leaa'.ie back up to live panics as the second-place New Orleans Pelicans split a twin-bill with third-running Chattanooga. Thc 'Noogans annexed the abbreviated first game nf -the doubleheader by gelling 10 hits' and 8 rune off Jim Atkins and Jim Shea while Luther Knerr limited the Un- you Bombers to seven hits and tliree runs. Al (Broadway) Flair homer- ed in the first for New Orleans will] one aboard and repeated the performance in the fourth of the nluht- cap, also with one aboard. The four-masters were his 13lh and H'h of the season and placed him oue ahead of Nashville's Walker in league home run glory. Tlie Pels' Pele {.lodtca stole lh.* shOT in the nightcap, limiting Lookcut batters to tcur measly hits ' i$ taking a 9 to 0 shutout win. Bill Kennedy was charged with tlvj loss, .Little Rock's cellar-dwelling Pebbles stifled immediate Birmingham hopes of gaining a first division berth by edging the Barons 1 to 5. veteran Al U'ie) Picchota brco/.- ed for the Rocks until the eighth when he succumbed to a four ruii Baron outburst and Wes Llvcn- Kood took over. Piecliota got credit for the win and Jack Teagan, Birmingham starter, was charged with the loss.
