i nc* BEATPIRATES Cincinnati Forgets It Has .^ Clinched Flag And Wins * ; Another Game By JUDSON BAILEY (Associated Press Sports Writer) Amid all the jubilation of the Cincinnati Reds, somebody forgot to shut off the ignition. With their National League pennant clinched Thursday, the Reds played their scrub team against the Pittsburgh Pirates yesterday and won, 2-1. That eccentric elbower, Lefty Lee Grissom, scattered seven hits and knocked home one of the Cincinnati runs with a triple. It was the Reds' sixth straight victory in less than a week against the Buccaneers, but nobody cared. The- only regular Red to start was Frank (Buck) McCormick, ambitious to acquire an endurance record. He was relieved in the third, the first time he has missed a single inning at first base in two years. The St. Louis Cardinals had a day of idleness in which to lick their wounds. Rain forced postponement of their contest at Chicago and also various other major league engagements. In the only other National League firing ,the Brooklyn Dodgers and Boston Bees divided a doubleheader, insuring the Dodgers of a berth in the first division and freezing out the New York Giants. - Tom Early won the first game for Boston, 2-1, on four-hit pitching. He had a no-hitter until the seventh. Seven-hit hurling by Hugh Casey in the nightcap won, 7-1 for the Dodgers, who were helped by four Boston errors. Cleveland 'swept a doubleheader from the Detroit Tigers, 4-3 and 3-0 in the- sole American League competition and took a firmer grip on third place. HI GRIDDERS SCOREAGAIN Front Royal Defeated In Well Played Game By Score 6 To 0. Hagerstown, High won its second start of the season on the gridiron yesterday by defeating Front Royal High by the score 6 to 0. It was a well-played game and the local boys showed to advantage. The Virginians for two periods were rapping at the Maroon and Gray goal line but they lacked the punch to take the leather across. One attempt at a field goal fliv- vered when the kicker was rushed and on another thrust a forward pass was intercepted, ending any threat that might have .been left in the Front Royal attack in the first half. In the third period after kicking off Hagerstown. forced the Virginians to kick with McFall booting the oval to Hagerstown's 45 yard line. Jeffry returned the boot to Front Royal's 43 yard stripe and here a march started with Jones, Jeffry and B. Russell lugging the leather. Jones crashed over from the 8 yard line for the score. In their drive for the score Hagerstown used straight football with off tackle smashes featuring. This drive was the only time that Hagerstown really clicked on their plays and were forced to be content with battling up and down the field between the 20 yard stripes. McFall's kicking kept Front Royal in the game from the start, his boots putting Hagerstown back time and again in the shadow of MAM.. HAUfcRSTOWN, MD., SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1939. BUSINESS MEN'S BOWLING LEAGUE CRONIN SIGNED FOR FIVE YEARS BOSTON, Sept. 30 (#>).—Aftei parrying queries about Joe Cronin's future for more than a year with the reply that "he has nothing to worry about," Torn Yawkey, millionaire owner oC the Boston Red Sox, more- than made good his promise by signing his player-manager to another five-year contract. When the young magnate made that important announcement in off-hand fashion last night, he also said he had signed up four outstanding players, Jimmy Foxx, Ted "Williams. Bobby Doerr and Jim Tabor for the 1940 season. Yawkey refused to comment on bin shortstop-manager's renewal terms or those for the others. Cronin, purchased from Washington for ,$150,000 and Lyn Larry in 1934, is reputed to have been drawing $27,000 a year since he took the Red Sox helm. As its pilot, he has seen his club finish fourth, sixth, fifth and for this and last season as runners-up to the Yankees. their goal posts while both Jones and Jeffry came through with well placed kicks that took the Maroon and Gray team out of danger. The Virginians in the final period turned loose a forward pass attack in an effort to knot the count but failure of McFall to be 5 yards behind the line of scrimmage on the one heave that found it's way into the arms oC a receiver had to be called back. Hagerstown kicked from there to the 15 yard line where the game ended. Coach Semler before the game was completed had two fresh ele vens on the field while Front Royal was handicapped in the way of reserves using only three extra men. The Maroon and Gray looked better in blocking and tackling than they did in their opening contest. Lineup and summary: Hagerstown Po Front Royal Powell .......
