St. Louis was playing the Athletics and Hurst, when umpiring in Philly, always managed to get back to his home in New York after the games. Jack Powell was pitching for St. Louis and what the Athletics didn't do to his pitching isn't worth mentioning. As the Athletics were piling up runs, train time drew nearer. Tim looked at his watch from time to time and Powell, noticing this, stalled the more. Finally in the ninth, Powell deliberately walked the first three men. Hurst burned up and call»d out the next three men on successive strikes though »Viry ball came close to being a wild pitch. Tim iust had time to catch the train. N.
