Washington takes first two from first place LA

Post by basilrathbonejr » Wed Jun 12, 2019 6:07 pm

The once seemingly insurmountable lead held by the Los Angles Traffic has suffered a dent thanks to the Washington Senators taking the first two games of the three game series at Washington's Griffith Stadium VII.

Washington at 30-20 is now four games behind Los Angeles and three games in front of the third place Minnesota Vikings.

Twenty nine year ld right hander Jack White got the win in game one after he went eight strong innings allowing one unearned run on just two hits. White walked one and struck out six to improved to 5-4 for the season.

Los Angeles had its' best offensive rally in the first inning when White issued his only walk of the game and Don Arntzen singled with one out. Monahan scored on a two base error on second baseman Dave Pryor to put Los Angeles in front 1-0.

Washington tied the game in the bottom of the first. Los Angeles starting pitcher Rob Lovullo gave up a lead off double to Jorge Stewart and Pryor atoned for his error with a one out double.

Washington nt ahead for good in the sixth inning. Lovullo walked lead off batter Bill Washburn. Rookie John Hasselbacher advance Washburn into scoring position with a smash off Lovullo's leg. The winning run came in on a single by Willie Glendon.
