PAGE EIGHT ULYTHEVH,rF? (ARK.) COUKIKK NKWS Chenault Goes To Bat Washington Pitcher Beats Yanks 8-6 To Keep His Record Perfect By United Press The best pitchers In baseball history never kept a perfect record —a 1000 average—for more tlian a couple of months. However, the present season lias passed the two-month mark, nnd one man'still b up there. He's Mllo Candint of the Washington Senators—and his balance sheet shows seven victories and no defeats. Yesterday the 2C-year-old rookie scored a i! 8 to 0 win over Hie league- leading New York Yankees. Candini's performance was Impressive, He held the Yanks to six hits and was the master all the way. He hel[icd his own cause by hitting a homer inside the park and a double, in addition to two sacrifices. Not bad -for one day's work. The victory is significant from another, standpoint. Because last year Candiin was a fann-hni)d for the Yanks tit Newark. And in winning yesterday, he defeated his former bosses. In the second jjnmc, Ernie Bon- Jjam of the Yanks did some shut- oii ( hurling, winning 4 to 0. The NEW Yorkers scored four times with two out in the last of the third. . "Another American League double-header saw the Ccleveland Indians nnd Detroit Tigers split :il Detroit. The games were the first In' major league history played under military protection. Three hundred and fifty Michigan stale troopers were In the stands as a precaution against rioting which lins swept Detroit. The first giunc was won by llic home forces, 3 to 1, with Hal Newhbuser pitching. The Indians scored three times in the nth inning of (he nightcap to win, D to 0. The Chicago White Sox nosed out the St. Louis Browns, 4 to 3. And the Boston Red Sox—svitn Oscar Judd pitching—slnit' out the Philadelphia Athletics, 1 to 0, in a night game. In the National League, the Brooklyn Dodgers cut the St. Louis Cardinals' lend to half a yamc. The Brooks beat the New York Giants tto-ice, 7 to 2 and (J to 0. In the afterpiece, Curl Davis pitched a two-hitler, not allowing n safely until the eighth. The Cards dropped n game to Cincinnati, B to 3, as Mori Cooper failed to stop the Reds. The Boston Braves took two close ones from the Philadelphia Phillies 1 to 0 and 4 to 3. And the Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago Cubs split—the Cubs winning the first, 4 to 1, nnd the Pirates the second, 7 to 5. . Baseball Standings SOUTHKUN LEAGUE W.

For Guilder Hags—who beat leg nice at 0000 meters last Sat- irduy—mny meet Gil Dodds at one of the middle distances in a short n'hile. Stop-watch addicts arc gloat- ng over the prospect—and they're eariy with a nock of .predictions. Just as there were plenty of Rice supporters before last Sunday—so here are plenty of track bugs in he Dodds camp. But Guilder Is certain to be Hie favorite—ns- he liescrvcs to be. Now that Americans nave had u chance to sec Hagg in action—and compare him to one of our own stnrs—they're firmly convinced thnt Ills hulld-up was fully justified. But they still think he can be beaten. They're not willing to admit Hint Oreg Rice is strictly a second- rater, where Hngg ts concerned. Not after the finishing'kick he applied when he wns hopelessly beaten in the 5000. •nicy know that both men were out of condition for that race.'But they nlso know thai Greg nice is a great competitor. And (hey feel thai Rice In perfect shape would stand a good chnnce to win If the two meet agnln. The chances are, though, that Hngg will run against Dodds before he races Kice. And Hint should prove «)> liilcrfstliig contest. Oil is the new national 1500 meter champion, having won that, title Saturday at the A. A. U. meet. He did the 1500 In, 3:50 nut. Thai's more (linn four seconds slower limn Hagg's world record. But Dodds—in his first outdoor appearance this year—showed that he has as much stuff as he hart u year ngo when he was the-best in competition. A Hagg-Dodds duel would hnve nn interesting angle. Both men are celebrated front-runners. Gil likes to take the lead at the start and pour It on as much as he can for I ho entire nice. Hagg knows no other way to run. Both men set a terrific pace. When two front-runners come to Grips, It usually means one thing —n -serious assault on the record book. And just that may happen when the Swedish fireman clashes with the Boston parson.
