New Orleans — a first division club practically since the beginning and throughout a large part of the season the first place team—lost. l>oth naine.s In a rioiible-hender to Nashville, 5-4 and 4-0 That, in U.self, would be bad enough. But, Chattanooga made it worse by winning from Mobile, 6-0. Norman Morton, otie of New Orleans' most reliable pitchers, walked In the winning run in the eighth inning of the first game. During the fourth Inning of- the second game Nashville seorert all four runs. Bania Hay hit a two-run homer during the outing. Sand Loiter in Action Just be/ore the game NashvilJe signed sandlot pitcher Jimmy Sie- phens and in less than two hours he went into action. He relieved Ronnie Mahrl and pitched two 'innings of Mint out ball. Sonny Oixon pitched one of his best games for Chattanooga, giving four hits, and finishing with a strikeout flourish. Little Rock has in a strong bid for a first division spot but odds against the Travelers going into the first class arc almost prohibitive. Last night the Rocks divided a doubleheacler with Birmingham, 2-1 and G-7. Memphis is in fifth uiul the Chicks whipped first place Atlanta, 1-1. Another former sandlotter—Dickie Thompson of Little Rock—won for Ills homed lib in the opener by giving Birmingham only five hits. In the second game Birmingham scored four times In the ninth.
