Murphysboro scored its first touchdown three plays before the fiibl quarier ended and converted its extra point effort. Second tally came after about eight minutes of the second period had elapsed.

In fine physical condition today, he looks as well as he did when he quit pitching in 1932 at the age of 43?. A NYON£ N cven slightly acquaint^ ·^ cd with Marquard knew he would never be arrested on the Bowery. If the immortal left- i hander couldn't travel top cabin, he wouldn't go at all.

There was nothing of the hayseed in Mnrquard, but the tag. Rube, \\as fastened on him because he was big and left-handed and coming in a* the fabulous \Vaddell was passing out. Maiquard was only 19 in the fall of 1908 wnen the Giants gave the Indianapolis club the then record puce of $11',000 for the winner of 23 games.

Starting on opening day of 1912, Marquard established the modern major-league record for consecutive Victories that still stands--at 19. He wasn't beaten until July'7. Marquard was in five World Series-,'won'-two of'the three 1 victories scored by the Giants in the hard-fought eight-game set with the Red Sox in 1912. Marquard obtained tremendous speed with a three-quarter motion and easy-pitching grace, had a very good curve. He was a smart, keen and dead- game pitcher without a squawk or alibi. He took things in stride, just as he did the false pretense of the intoxicated tramp. Director of mutuels Lou Walger of Aqueduct, for whom Marquard works during the winter at Tropical Park, says hundreds of people asked him about the Rube the day after the souse was arrested. Everyone expressed the opinion that the derelict was a phonus- balonus. They knew Marquard would never be found on the Bowery unless he was slumming.

St. Louis Wipes Out Brooklyn Lead In 9th Inning, 8-7 NEW YORK, Sept. 13-- "IB- Today dawns as the most momentous day of the 1947 baseball season, as the Brooklyn Dodgers and the St. Louis Cards meet in the rubber game of their three-gam'e "series for the pennant." ." v ' It's slated to be the Cards' ace' right-hander, little Murry Dickson, pitching against the Dodgers plucky little lefty, Vic Lombnrdi. The Brooklyn margin will become a scanty thiee-and-a-half games or a fat five-and-a-half before nightfall in St. Louis. The Cards bounced back from their 4 to 3 loss in the series opener Thursday to whip the Dodgers, 8 to 7, last night in as hair-raising a ball game as ever seen anywhere. The Dodgers overcame a 6-3 deficit in the ninth inning with four runs, but in the same stanza Country Slaughter rammed an extra-base hit with two on to give the Cards two more runs and the ball game. Kiner Hits Two Homers ' With the score tied at two-all, relief pitcher Hugh Casey walked three Cards and Stan Musial scored 'em all with a triple. The teams traded single runs in the eighth and then Brooklyn got four in the ninth, two on pinch-hitter Don Lund's homer and two on Dixie Walker's single. While the pennant storm hangs over St. Louis, thunder continues to rumble in Pittsburgh -- the thunder in the bat of Ralph Kiner. The Pirate outfielder socked two homers yesterday as Pittsburgh beat Boston, 4 to 3, and he thus set a new major-league record of eight homers in four games. Kiner's spree erased the old mark of seven homers in four games set in 1936- by Tony Lazzeri of the Yankees. Kiner's first wallop yesterday came in the fifth inning with one on and his second. in the eighth with- none on. pro vided pitcher Truett (Rip) Sewell with the winning run in his sixth end who does the punting, dropped back in punt formation on the second down. Instead of kicking he ran his left end and jaunted 24 yards before he was dropped. Murphy Gains 140 Yards Only other Bull Dog run of consequence was tainted. Ashe took the ball deep in his territory, fumbled it, and Murphysboro fell on the pigskin 17 yards up the field. It was a nice gain but the Red Devils had the ball. · Statistics show that the Bull Dogs gained a net 58 yards from scrimmage to 140 for Murphysboro. The local lads attempted six passes, with four incomplete and two intercepted. Murphysboro took to the air five times and completed two attempts, one for 18 yards and the other for barely a yard.

Last year the Red Devils, after a 6 to 6 tie with Harrisburg, went on to win every game on their schedule and cop the Southwestern conference vitle. Coach Eddie Bencini had a wealth of material on the bench as well as on the field, and he made replacements steadily. He had a half dozen good bue-:s who could-tarry the mail, but. /u was what made the backs look so much better. The linesn:on blocked -out our men very effectively in the first half as the Red Devil backs successfully ran their play:, from the single wing formation, c.imc type of offense used by Harrisburg Naturally all of the boys were getting some tackles, but it seemed from the sidelines that Herb Cummins was the only man who could consistently cause any halt in the attack. He made several vicious tackles. Murphy Scores Twice Murphysboro received the opening kickoff and Congiardo returned the ball 60 yards to the Harrisburg 25. Four plays, however, failed to gain the needed /ardage and the Red Devils lost the ball on downs. Harrisburg could not gain and Brown punted to his own 47, Then three consecutive first downs, .with John JRay doing most of the ball toting on reverses, gave the foe its first touchdown, with Carlock carrying the ball over from the- two-yard line. A pass, Carlock to Williams, was good for the extra point. Murphysboro made four consecutive first downs at the outset of the second Tieriod after taking passing Vermont's neighboring New England states.
