"AGE SIX 13LYTHEVILLE, (ARK,) COURIER NEWS Series Front From Air as War Begins TUESDAY, OCTORKR :), 1933 Former Washing Ion Hurler Says Nais Can Beat Team Without Punch. • EDITOR'S N'OTE: This !s thei last of n series of six arliclc-s by! Walter Johnson commenting on| the u-orld series beginning today j bftween the Giants and his oldj i< am. the Washington Nationals. HV WALTER JOHNSON : (As inld lo Hill llrjmrhrr, Xl!AJ Service Sports Fdilor) NEW YORK. Oct. 3.-Washim;- lon to win—in not more than six liame.s. That is my si/e-up of thei v.-orld series as Ihe two teams lint', U|> /or.the first g.ime today at \\ Pfdo firounds. rn ihe last analysis R seems to me that a club with |»wcr, plus a fine defense plus a (soud ptichiiii;, Maff i headed by the best of them: nil. Alvin Crowder i. will heal n! c!«b with u tjood. but nol preat.! c'tcliiiu.' staff, and a good defense : bin lacking in punch at the iilale. Hubbell mav stop the Washing- i ten hitters. But. I believe he Is ihe only New York pitcher, with Ihe possible exception of Pitzsim- moiu. who can do It. On Ihe other hand what are the Giants going lo do acalnst such fine pitchers as Whilehill. Stewart and Weaver —and. if they stnrt him, nob Rurke? Sooner or laicr Ihf Washington bats will beain to click. There Is no nabe Ruth amomr them, bill cvcrv man on Ihe club hits hard I', will bo n <;tjff tesi for the Giants' defenw. Next to the work of Crowder i exneci. the finest Bitching for Washinetnn during liiis series will be furnished bv Walter Stewart. He is the kind of smirt. steady Miulhoaw baseball men like lo hnve on (heir ball clubs. Besides Hubbell ami 'Pilz, there Is a good chance for Hal Schumacher to sec service In the box. He has a fine sinker ball, but his youth mav count asainst him in n series where the pressure Is high and where so much h exoected of u pitcher. Paul Derrlneev. n fine Pitcher for the Cardinals a couple of seasons ago. but when he nol Into the world series asal'" 1 the A's he could not get the ball over the nlale. The Giants, besides Hubbell, Fitzslmmons nnd Schumacher, have Herman Bell, Adolfo Luouc Walson Clark, Lcroy Pannnlec. John Salveson and Glenn Spencer. I do not expect the Nats to haVe trouble with any of these latter six pitchers. Tlie Nats have looked at better pitching all ytar than I believe they can exited to see from these bos men. nnd have beaten .all the good American League pitchers at one lime or another. * • • II this were to be a pitching! problem—leaving the Hals' super-i ior batting out of it for a moment —I prefer the Nats' staff to that of the Giants. Offered mv choice! as a mannger between the two '•• staffs, I would take Washington's. The nine men of the Nats' pitching department are Crowder. Whitehlll, Stewart, Monte Weaver.
