MONDAY, JULY 20, 1942 THE BIRMINGHAM NEWS Th South's Greatest Newspaper FIFTEEN - Barons Lose Double Bill To Nashville Matuzak Loses Control In Eighth Inning; Mike Schultz Wild In Second mm" BY RAYMOND JOHNSON NASHVILLE, Tenn. Johnny Riddles Barons blew a chance to move into the first division Sunday when they dropped two games to Those Vols. The fatal figures were 11 to 10 and 10 to 1. The first one was a bitter loss to the Barons. Harry Matuzak was breezing along until the eighth and had a fat margin. Then all of a sudden he lost control and was yanked with two out. Rocky Stone came to his aid but it was like throwing a chain around the body of a drowning man. Rocky was rapped for two blows which sealed the Slagtowners fate. Matuzak had made only two mistakes up until the eighth, the first one was in the fourth when he gave Gus Dugas a pitch he slapped out of the park for his 16th home run. The other was in the fifth when he laid a fast one letter high to Charley English. It was last seen fading over the distant leftfield barrier. The two licks netted five runs. Mike ScHultzs wildness led to his downfall in the second game. He scattered a hit to an inning until the fifth when Those Vols bunched five for six runs to make a run-away of the contest. Chief Wahoo Eaves started the first game. The Barons appreciated him, too, for they arrived almost two hours late and the only batting practice they got was against Eaves and Ed Malone, his successor. Malone hurled good ball in all but one round. Charley Gassaway worked the ninth and was nicked for two hits and as many runs. Dutch McCall limited the Barons to four hits, one an infield tap and another a misjudged fly that gave the visitors their own run. Mike Dejan hammered home runs, his 10th and 11th of the year, over the rightfield wall in the opener. They accounted for three tallies. Lon Goldstein socked his eighth and Charley English, who drove in eight runs with six hits, connected for his 10th. Sensational fielding by Johnny Mihalic and Charlie Brewster handicapped the Barons. Dejan's first four-bagger of the afternoon started the Barons iff in front in the second heat of the opener. Matuzak, Gamble and Conway fired successive doubles in the third. Dejan climaxed the inning with his second wall-wallop, this time hitting almost on top of the ice house. These four blows produced four runs. Goldstein opened the fourth with a liner that barely cleared the screen and that was all for the Chief. I I BARON BOMBER Mike Dejan (above) mauled the horsehide Sunday for two homeruns in the first Baron-Vol game at Nashville Sunday, but it wasnt enough for a home-talent victory. Mike led a heavy Baronial attack, but saw his efforts erased as the Vols jumped on Matuzak for a narrow win. Baron Box Score FIRST GAME BIRMINGHAM Ab. R. H. O.

Seguras two-handed drives down the sidelines kept Schroeder on the defensive throughout and afforded the Californian few opportunities to move in close. While Seguras emphasis was on speed, he threw in an occasional dropshot to add to Schroeders discomfiture. The Ecuadorean eased up perceptibly in the third set.
