THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., MONDAY, AUGUST 14, 1939. NINE Colts Lose But Hold Loop Lead Yarrowsburg Stops Maugansville By Score 4 To 2 Sunday. Unleashing a ten hit attack on Roger Mowen, Yarrowsburg pounded out a 4-2 victory over the Maugansville Colts Sunday afternoon. It was their second victory of the season over Maugansville, with a third to be played August 27. "Woody" Younkins was in rare form as he flipped an elegant three- hitter and sent ten Colts back to the bench on strikes. Mowen seemed to be no puzzle for the Yarrowsburg batters, being racked frequently with men on base. Phillips and Calhoun led the winner's attack with F. Younkens playing a brilliant game afield.

BOSTON BEES WIN Brooklyn, Aug. 13 (/P).—Emphatically ending a five-game losing streak, the Boston Bees captured a doubleheader from Brooklyn's Dodgers today with an outbreak of 30 hits which won the opener 13 to 6 and the nightcap S to 2. Boston SOS 100 013—13 17 0 Brooklvn 100 002 201— 693 Reds Lose Out? That's A Big Laugh In Cincinnati CINCINNATI, Aug. 14.—It's all cut and dried here now, the Reds are in and the only question is, "Do we win the first world series game with Walters or Derringer , or shold we let Gene Thompson do it?" Speak not of Pittsburgh, where there are tickets still available for the series they didn't play. That means nothing to Joe Fan-in-the- street, who knows only that the Queen City of the West has sprouted a crop of 20-year wonders. Speak not of jinxing the team —the Reds' front office has spoken of that day after day and no. one pays any attention. Joe Fan-in- the-street only knows that h e has waited 20 long years for a team like this, 20 long years since Pat Moran brought home the bacon. Speak not of the letdown if anything goes wrong, for if you do you're liable to have an awful time putting yourself together again. A Doubting Thomas in a year like this lives a hunted life here. "^HERE'S NO ROOM IM REDVILLE FOR A DOU8TIMG THOMAS.'/ Speak not of slumps, for during the Reds' worst hitting slump this year they passed the man in the moon in the standings. Pitchers Off, Hitters On Speak not of tiring pitchers, for when Cincinnati pitchers tire Cincinnati batters rage and rain hits all over the landscapes of eight cities. Speak not of injuries, for with slugging Ival Goodman out most of July Ernie Lombard! out part of it, ihe Reds won 22 and lost but seven. Speak not of the Reds' early- August slump that chopped off a part of their lead. They'll regain that ground, Joe Fan asserts. Yea, s-peak of nothing but the coming glory, for that's all Joe Fan-in-the-street lives by, for, and on. A single with none on and two out in the first inning makes 2,548 fans swallow their cigars. A double play by the familiar, efficient Myers-Frey-McCormick machine—they've turned in more than Myers hit a homer—never mind, you wouldn't believe it anyway. Word of a double-header makes the rail lines hum with special trains and extra cars. The cops on the roads into town have their hands full. One observer reported that at S o'clock of the morning of a Sunday double-header, the ball park parking lot had in it cars from Michigan, Illinois, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, Indiana and Ohio. Gals Storm Gates Announcement of Ladies Day, when the gals get in for 35 cents, puts some hardy ones in front of the gates right after breakfast. Theyborrow their monfolks' lunch- kits and then make them get their own suppers out of cans. Well, this is all a dream, but even pinching yourself doesn't make it any different. The Reds may or may not come in, but be\100 now—restores normal pulse to | tween now and such time as it's uncounted thousands. When Billy official, the town's on a bust. 'A 20-Round Battle's Okay By Us,' O T 1 I--/" 1 T •AJU* Say Tough Guys Louis And Pastor DETROIT, Aug. 14, (£>). — Anything can happen in a horse race —or in boxing—and it may be that the customers who put out from $2 to $27.50 to watch Heavyweight Champion Joe Louis fight young Bob Pastor September 20 will get more action for their money than any ring crowd in 25 years. The championship fight, Detroit's first by the way, is scheduled for 20 rounds, the first title o of this length to be arranged since Jack Dempsey won the title from- big Jess Willard at Toledo n 1919. That fight ended at the ;lose of the third round so the 20 round feature was no bargain. The last heavyweight championship to last more than 15 rounds was the bout at Havana on April 1915, in which Jack Willard lifted the title from Jack Johnson by knockout in 'the 26th. They Aren't Worried Both Louis and Pastor are un- nipressed by the 20-round phase. "I don't care if its 20 rounds or 50 because I'll set my own limit this time," says Joe, who is still peever because Pastor stayed the full ten rounds with him on January 27, 1937. "I'm in shape all the time and although I've never gone 20 rounds I know I can," says Pastor, who isn't visibly afraid of the champion. Pastor may be like the proverbial gent who whistled in the- graveyard but he talks a great fight and his reasoning does not sound illogical. First, Pastor'points to the fact that when he met Louis the first time he had engaged in only 23 fights and was appearing in only his third ten round engagement. "I have fought many ten round- ers since that fight," says Pastor. Bob also points to his inexperience in 1937 and Claims to have improved "100 per cent." Also, Pastor will carry more weight into the ring this time. In his first bout with Louis the ex- New York University footballer weighed 179 pounds. His fighting weight now is around 190, which means he will be outweighed by not more than 10 or 11 pounds. Four Punches And Okay "In ihe first fight Joe hit me solidly four time and I took the punches in good shape," Pastor says. "That's more than most of Louis' opponents have been able to do and a majority of them were groggy after one punch." Pastor has gone to Saratoga, N. Y., to do his preliminary training. He will appear at a Michigan camp around August 20. Louis is following custom and is at his camp at Stevensville, Mich. Like Pastor, he will move to a camp near Detroit in mid-August. Meanwhile, plans for converting Briggs Stadium, the home of the Detroit Tigers, into a boxing arena have been completed by Lionel Levy, architect for Promoter Michael Strauss Jacobs. The park will seat 80,000 for the fight. HOME RUN RECORD IS TIED BY GIANTS New York, Aug. 13 (JP). —Recovering from the embarrassment of defeats by the last place Phillies on two consecutive days, the Giants swept a doublehcader from Philadelphia today 11 to 2 and G to 2. :ying the National league record 'or home runs in the first game. Seven home runs, three of them coming in succession in the fourth nning, made it easy for Bill Lohrman to annex his tenth victory in he opener. Frank Demaree hit wo of the homers, one in the first nd another in the third, with one on. In the fourth, Zeke Bonura hit and shortly afterward Alex Jvampouris, Lohrman and Joe \loore bunched three in a row.

Wagaman's single in the twelfth inning with a runner on third base was the base blow that defeated the Pinesburg A . C. and helped the West End All Stars to annex their ninth straight game. It was a, hard fought game and both teams made several fine plays although they committed a total of nine miscues. B. Young and H. Wagaman each collected two hits for the winners, the latter's two hits being a triple and home run, both with runners on base. For the Pinesburg team Martin and B.. Banzhoff each, collected two hits apiece. Murray who relieved Wine in the eighth inning, held the Pinesburg boys hitless the rest of the game. After this game they played another 5 inning game which the Pinesburg A. C. won by putting o na big 6 run rally in the 5th inning. Pine-'brg A. C. 000 014 000—5 10 3 W. End A.
