Ken Brett, the left-handed pitching and hitting sensation, seems to pose a similarly won derful "problem" for the Pirates. In the first game of the Pirates' Memorial Day double- leader sweep of the San Diego Padres Monday, lefty Brett pitched perfect baseball for eight innings and ended up'with a two-hit. 6-0 shutout. But the work of a pitcher who hits like Ken Brett is never done and his bat was called or to pinch hit in the second game. Brett boomed a two-run triple to spark a five-run sey enth inning uprising and the Pi- Boston Bruins Enter National Hockey Draft Without Bep Guidolin McLain Returns To Amateur Ball BOSTON (AP) -- The Boston Bruins go into today's National "" " League amateur d r a f t a coach in the wake of Former Delroit Tiger pitching ace Denny McLahl follows through on a pii* Friday night during an inter-county baseball league game in London, O n f .
