As a pitcher Bishop By JOE WHITTIXGTON Sun Sports Editor If you are the type of person that thinks four-game baseball statistics are conclusive and finalize the appraisal of a ball player or team, then there's a good chance that you would think that the Tiajuana Brass is the top ranking officers of the Mexican army.

BosweU is tied with another senior righthander. Jerry Johnson, in the won-loss column, but carries a .777 earned run average, compared to Johnson's quite respectable 2.COG. Johnson and! BosweU have been exchanging starting assignments and it v.-ill probably be Johnson the mound Friday at Port Arthur.

FvJ Johnson has hurled seven innings, giving up as many hits six runs, only two of these earned, walked two batters and struck out seven batters. Leading the Ganders batting order against the Buffs will be senior rightfielder Jon RusseU who has a .461 batting average in getting six hits in 13 official trips to the plate. Behind Russell comes the hef ty hitting of senior leftfnelder Ronnie Anderson, coasting with a .308 clip, getting four hits ir 13 times at bat. Anderson drove in four runs across the plate in one inning this past weekend as the Ganders dumped Houston Lamar, 8-1 and 5-3, in a doubleheader. Third baseman Richard Oliver is carrying a heavy .333 batting average, but the returning starter has only six official trips to trie plate, drawing an abundance of base-on-balls. Possible missing personnel Thursday will be catcher Dennis McAfee, hitting .666 with two hits in only three official times up, and 6-7 senior first baseman Fred Hand. Hand has a pulled muscle and McAfee strained his ankle against the Redskins of Lamar while covering first base. The opening lineup will have Boswell on the mound, senior Carl Greene behind the plate, first baseman Steve Rougeau, second baseman Alan Acosta, third baseman Oliver, shortstop Randy Beckman, leftfielder Anderson, centerfielder Ricky Burch and rightfielder Russell. Failing to schedule a practice game for Tuesday in preparation for the Milby tilt, the Ganders reeled off a six-inning intra-squad game. A team of Dean Uttlepage, Alan Tomlinson, O. E. Downing, Stanley Bishop, Junior Varsity member Bobby Slack, JV's Ira Thompson, Norman Montgomery, JV Jim Wilkie, JV Russell Hargraves and Boswell dumped the other selected team, 5-4. The second team consisted ofi Burch, Acosta, Russell, who got two hits, Oliver, Anderson, Beckman. Greene, Rougeau, j Johnson and junior hurler Scott Barringer, who has eight strikeouts in four innings of regular season play. The big blows for the winning nine came from the hefty bat of senior pitcher-utility infielder Bishop, getting two doubles in three trips to the plate. The victory added another job for the already versatile Bishop, according to Coach Don Treu- hardt. "Well, I've got me a fine pinch - hitter now," Treuhardt said. "A good pinch - hitter is something that's real important, but hard to find. "He's got to be able to hit the ball, somewhere at least, A Bear for Wear Keep Up With Sports In The Sun hit." Don said, as he watched one of Bishop's doubles bounce off tile left field fence. As a pitcher Bishop has "He hits that ball real well, Bitched three relief innings, al-j and he's a good glove man.{lowing two hits, no runs, one) too," Treuhardt said, as if un-jtwo batters.
