Blytheville retaliated in the second with four , runs on one hit. two errors and (' two bases on balls and went on from there to their eighlh viclorv. Kenny Merritt. the Pickers' ace righthander, probably will work milling. The unchanged odds surprised many boxing men who believed the rain-delay might dull the fighting edge ol emotional Graziano.
