With t h c exception of a wild pitch, Ahrens had perfect control a n d whiffed six Legionnaires. W i l l i n g h a m Loser John Willingham was the victim of an unearned run in the initial frame and of a pair of runs in the fifth inning to suffer his first loss in his last six starts. He jjave up six hits in Ihe seven innings he worked on the mound. Johnny Krail hurled the eighth inning in which Spencer got another hit and its final run. With one out in the bottom of the first inning, Boh Wills singled. Dick Colloton came up with a sensational stop of K. C.

A walk to Carroll Sawin, a sacrifice, a single by Ahrcns and a double by Bill Stenger gave Spencer a pair of runs in the f i f t h . The final Spencer tally came off Krall in the eighth after two were out. A walk to Bill Hayes, a single by Sawin and a walk to Gene JEckcrt filled the bases. Ahrens then hit to Bon Waldron. who, in trying to tag Hayes coming into third dropped the ball. Loads Sacks · . Mason City's best scoring opportunity came in the top of the eighth inning.
