Baseball Scores and recaps

Post by basilrathbonejr »

Cleveland is hosting the first place Washington Senators in a three game series that is level at a game apeace after two games. Game one went to Cleveland 5-1.

Clevleland roughed up Washington starting pitcher Chip McGarr (LP 1-2) for two runs on nie hits over 5.2 innings and then four members of the Washingtoin bullpen, Joe Pennock, Joe Ryan, Steve Kahle, and Lou McAllister gave up three runs on three hits the rest of the way.

Michael Jamerson was the winning pitcher (2-0) going eight innings giving up one runs on just three hits with eight strikeouts and four walks.

Washington only run came in 7th inning when Matt Garrbell scored on a Will Benzel single.

Cleveland took the lead in the 1st inning on a two run homerun by George Roof, his fourth. Two have come of Washington pitchers. Roof was the hitting star of the game. After homering in the 1st Roof struck out in the 3rd, doubled in the 5th and hit a two run triple in the 8th leaving him a single short of a ''cycle.''


Game two..............

Washington 7 Cleveland 1

Israel Geraghty (2-0) went all nine innings, struck out nine, walked one, and allowed one run on six hits over the nine innings. Geraghty has one complete game this season and a nifty 2.16 ERS on a staff with a collective 2.90 ERA (3D in the league)

The Senators regulars are hitting .277 which also ranks thrid in the league. Although not a power laden club the homerun got them off to a good start in this one. Tom Hanyzewski hit his 2nd with one on and one out in the 1st inning off Otis Montgomery (0-2).

Cleveland socred its lone run in the 6th inning on two two-out doubles by Alex Compton and Bob Brantley that narrowed the socre to 2-1.

The Senators chased Montgomery in the 7th inning (6.1 innings 9 hits and 5 runs).

Montgomery ran into trouble by walking the first two batters in the inning; pinch hitters John Murray and Lonnie Noojin. Hanyzewski flied out to deep right field. One out. Antonio Pugh dropped a soft single into right field loading the bases. Cleveland changed pitchers bringing in Bob Hartsock.

Chuck DeJohn, the first batter he faced, doubled driving in two runs (Murray and Noojin). Catcher Rod Alexander singled in Pugh with the third run. Alexander stole second base. Brown grounded to third for the second out (DeJohn scored). Matt Garrbella doubled him in Alexander with run number five.

At the end of this inning the Senators led 7-1 and that was the final score.


Tampa Bay 3 Oakland

Paul White (2-0) went eight shutout innings holding Oakland to just two hits, a 2nd inning single by Dad McWilliams, and a 6th inning double by Chuck Voss.

Tampa's two scores came on a 3rd inning triple by Ezra Evers amd a 5th inning single by Alex Harding.
