THE BINGHAMTON PRESS, SATURDAY EVENING, AUGUST 15, 1931. 14 Spinning the Sports Top -By Al Lamb- THE approach of "Bob" Brown. Triple Cities NTP League club pitcher, to a no-hlt, no-run game against Harrlsburg at Johnson Field Thursday night (he yielded only one hit In nine Innings and the Senators' lone run was scored on errors), led to a search of the records. They reveal that 114 hltless, ronless contests have been hurled In major eague baseball. SUCH pitching performances, however, are rather rare In modern baseball. Bob Burke, slim Washington lefthander, Is the latest mounds-man to turn one In. He set the Boston Red Sox down without a blow a week ago today. Wes Ferrell, the Cleveland Americans' righthander, twirled a hltless B-0 victory over the St. Louis Browns April 29. Tills is the only other game of Its kind played this season. VXLY six Of the 114 no-hlt affairs have been perfect ones games In which no player reached first base on balls, errors or being hit by a pitched ball or by any other means. The perfect games were hurled by ,lolin Lee Richmond of the Worcester club against the Cleveland Nationals In 1880, by John Montgomery Ward of Providence In the same year, by Cy Young of Boston against the Philadelphia Americans In 1901, by Addle Jos of Cleveland against the White Sox hi 1908, by Ernie Shore of the Red Sox against Washington In 1917 and by Charley Robertson of the White Sox against Pctrolt In 1923. FOUR pitchers have twirled no-hlt games for 10 or more Innings, and among them was the unluckleet of all heroes Harry Mclntyre of the Brooklyn Dodgers. He held the rijfttes hitless for 13 Innings In 1906 tout lost the decision, 1 to 0. Triplet Trips One of the largest crowds of the reason saw a game that was colorful and kept the spectators on edge. About l.SOO of the 3.400 fans were women, guest of the home club. Keffelfinger, the Harrlsburg southpaw pitcher, has a sore right knee today. George Ties bounced a hot one off of the slinger's leg Joint in the fifth inning. Was a tough place for Sevrlno to break In as the Triplet sltnger with a man on third in the fourth inning. His wild pitch that let the runner come in undoubtedly upset him. Looked as if he may do, though; had plenty of steam for a southpaw. The oil of cltronella odor Is so ctrong that the Triplet bench smells like a drug store. The boy had to do something mosquitoes were eating them up. Jim Wiltsie. the new twlrler. It needed badly with Love on the shelf for a few nays, wtitsie was with Richmond in the Eastern League and wag sent to Reading but But falo sent a man there ahead of him and he was made a free agsnt. Manager Groh Immediately signed him to a. Triplet contract. He pitched for Groh when the latter managed Hartford. He Is an experienced twirler and the "Trips" count upon him to be of considerable aid to them.

Manager Heine Groh returned to third base anfl shifted "Swede" Swenson to second in place of the veteran Johnny Khovlin, who was released Friday afternoon. J 1 m Wiltsie, a vet- johnny shovlin erin minor ea;iie pitcher, was signed after 'liday nights contest. Almost airtight pitching by Hef- felfinger. a southpaw, after the home club had nipped Rase for a run In the first Inning and another n the second, was mainly respon sible for a 3 to 2 victory for Har- rishurg here Friday nipht. That pave the clubs an even break in he two-game series. A "Ladles' Night" crowd of about 300 saw Ruel Love, who had been exceptionally effective In his last two previous starts, doa Johnny Tillman lob tne ball over and fcol the Senators for three, innings. The- big Trip" moundsman had hurt his side ir. hitting fungoes Thursday nlirht. but did not think it would give him rouble. H got by until the fourth Inning, when a base on balls, a douhle and a triple netted the visitors wo runs and a wild pitch by Tony Sevrino, relief hurler, gave them another. Bert Grimm, who worked Wednesday night, was called back nd held Manager "Eddie" Onslow's men to four hits in the last five in nings. But his fine twirling went for naught when his mates were unable to solve the hooks of Heffel-finger. George Tice and Tom Lovelace each collected two of the Grohmen's six hits. Cy Morgan, with a triple hat scored two of his team's runs and put him in position to register the third, was Harrisburg's big gun. Powell led off for the Triplets in he first inning by drawing a pass. Swenaon's sacrifice bunt put him on second, .whence he scored when Tice laced a double Into left field. After Groh and Laenhardt had walked and one man was out in he second Inning. Laenhardt was caught In a box off first but Groh raced to third and made it Catcher McCarthy had thrown the ball to Lewan to .pick Laenhardt off first. Shortstop Cihockl took toss from Lewan and returned it; it looked as If the Triplets' first sacker would be tagged but Lewan dropped the ball and both runners were safe. Rase walked Powell in tentionally to fill the sacks for a force play but he couldn't regain his control and passed Swenson, forcing Groh across the plate. Hef- felftnger, southpaw with a wide hook, was rushed to his rescue on the mound. After Teploskl walked with two Senators out In the fourth. Love was found for the first Harrlsburg hit. Lewan connecting for two sacks. Peploskt was held at third. Mor gan laced a triple Into right field, sending both runners home and tying the count. Tony Sevrino, the semi-pro pitcher from Rochester, was called upon to twirl for the Triplets for the first time. He struck out McCarthy but the lat ter bit on a wild pitch, the ball being low and inside, for the third strike. Catcher Htelnecke could not handle the ball and Lewan ambled across the plate, giving the Senators a 3-2 lend, and the batter scampered safely down to first. Ilerrelfinger walked and Bert Grimm was called to the box. Gullan lined out to Griffiths, ending the half of the Inning. them the remainder of the season.

They number 36 and discriminating Judges will be willing to back them against a Blmilar number of yearlings bred at any stud lrr the world. They look like yearlings of their age should look not like over stuffed pigs. They are hard and rugged, appear to have been running out most of the day in short, were TET are principally the get of Sun Briar and Traumer. I was particularly struck with the im provement in the sons and daugh ters of Traumer. These yearlings are infinitely superior to his earlier ones, and give every evidence of improving on what his present two- year-olds have accomplished to date. There were 17 foals of Trau- mers registered In 1930 ana or this lot some eight or nine have woti races as two-year-olds to date. This Is a truly remarkable showing, and coupled with the fact the three-year-old Dark Magnet won the I'imlico Oaks and Dark Sea has developed into one of the fastest horses around Chicago, It augurs well for the son of Dark Ronald and Taormina. Of the Sun Briar colts at Sun Briar Court there are seven that are practically faultless In their conformation. The first I saw was a chestnut out of Kelgh Nun. Then came a dark chestnut colt out of the double Futurity winner, Sally's Alspy. Having known Sally since she was a foal I was greatly interested in this yearling. In appearance he has un Briar's head and neck and Sally's body in other words in bodily appearance he is a typical Domino horse. I think he will be quick to come to hand, and the manner In which he carries his hind legs close up under him betokens high speed. TIE third colt' is a black out of Mlsslnaibi. therefore a full bt-nt,i la thai rnnsiatortt fiitn Mission. This colt Is a bigger colt than Sun Mission was at a corresponding age, and will, when he gets to the races, be bigger than his distinguished relative. He looks to have the makings of a grand racehorse. ? The fourth colt is the "observed of all observing." He is a brother to the mighty Hun Beau, greatest money winning horse In the world. Like Sun Beau. I doubt If he will mature quickly that Is, from a racing' standpoint he looks like one which will need plenty of time. The fifth colt Is a black out of Elmira Red Wing Baseball Club Granted State Charter to Operate NYP League Club Albany, Aug. 13 (Ansnrlated pros) A charter was issued by he secretary of state to the Elmira Red Wing Baseball club of Elmira, authorizing it to operate professional baseball eluhs and to furnish other amusements. The capital consists of 100 shares of no par value. The incorporator, all residents of Elmira, are Halsey Favlee. William E. Palmer and Wlliiam Flannery. The Red Wing club will operate ths "Colonels" In the NTP League. The Ft. Louia National League club Is said to control the franchise. TIIAI.N FOR CHAXXFX PWIM Four women nd one men are at Orlz Nez, France, training for attempts to swim the English channel this summer. Visit With Exterminator raised as yearlings should be raised Captivating, and it would not surprise me if he developed into the best of all.- The sixth colt la out of Hawkshead, half brother to Gift Hawk, and looks like a real nice colt. The seventh and last Is a beautifully balanced colt out of Sympatic, therefore a half brother to Starpatlc, but far better looking he too may be anything. 0! N looking the Traumer over I was struck with the uniformly good shoulders, withers and quarters possessed by them, and the excellent legs and feet plenty of bone. The eons of Traumer that Impressed me most deeply were the chentnnt colt out of Kun Vive, a chenut out of Hussy, the colts out of Bunmcl and Atta ";al, as well as -the colts out of unwlna and Allfey. Here again it was Impossible to have a decided preference all were superb. l-'our of the Traumer filles were beauties a dark brown out of Kriary. a beautifully-balanced bay out of Irieh Lady, therefore a half sister to Minotaur; a chestnut out of Sunny Love and another chestnut out of Sun Fairy, the latter strikingly reminiscent of her sire. Then I saw a group of four fillies, practically perfect In make and shape, two by 8un Briar and two Imported in utero, by foreign sires. The 8un Briar fillies were out of Xegoporte and out of Tweed, respectively, while the foreigners were a bay by Embargo out of Quatrea Arts and a brown by Fox-law out of Fritters. Embargo was a high-class racehorse, winning in Ireland, England and Belgium, while Foxlaw, by Son-ln-Law, was an Ascot Gold Cup winner. Here again It was impossible to decide which was best, but the Foxlaw filly out of Frlttera might be en 1 1 1 ,fi Q1 titled to a shade, THER yearlings In the lot rank with the bet bred anywhere the daughter of rapyrtia out of Caprice, for Instance, makes an immediate appeal, but lack of spare precludes my giving them their Just deserts suffice it to say yearlings hnve nn nun al any stud in this country.

In compiling the averages after last Wednesday's games it was necessary to carry the figures out to the fifth decimal place to give Ray Pepper of Rochester first place among the "regulars" over John Gill of Baltimore. Pepper has an average of .34773 to Gill's .34772. Tom Gulley of Montreal is a rath er poor third at .335. Other lead ing regulars include: Strong, To ronto. .330; Boone.

British Women RefusetoVie for Net Title Divide Two Singles Sets Then Win Doubles; Men in Semi-Finals Rye, Aug. 15 (Associated Press) The Eastern turf court tennis championships will have to get along this year without a women's singles title-holder. Joan Ridley and Mrs. Elsie Gold-sack Plttman, Britons both and close friends to boot, walked off the courts of the Westchester country club yesterday after dividing the first two seta of their final round match for the women's singles crown and declined to finish it. Although Dr. Philip B. Hawk, chairman of the championship committee, protested that such an action was unprecedented in the annals of major American tournaments, the British girls declared they wanted to save their strength for the doubles and that they considered their action In refusing to continue the singles match "perfectly proper." Nothing could shake the Britons from their decision and it finally was decided to award them first and second prizes, to be divided as they saw fit. Nelther's name, however, will appear on the championship trophy). Mrs. Pittman won the first set, 6 3, but Miss Ridley came back to take the second. 64. After the strange ending" of their singles duel, the British girls teamed up to win the doubles, beating Jo sephine cruicksnanK of eanta Ana.
