Seattle @ Washington

The Washington Senators played host to the Seattle Sea Walks at spacious Griffith Stadium for a three game series before departing on a road trip to Cleveland to face off with one of three clubs they are currently tied with for first place. But before all that the Senators had busy to take care of with Seattle.

Washington batted for ten innings to get a 8-7 victory in game one, then fell 8-5 to Seattle in game two to set up a rubber game in the series finale. Mel McKnight, Washington's ace started for the Senaotrd on the hill and Dan Tatum was the Seattle hurler.

McKnight (2-0 2.73 ERA) and Tatum were both sharp over the first five innings. McKnight did not give up a hit until Chuck Bedgood led off the fifth inning with a triple to deep right field. Charlie Bramhall got the run in with a fly ball to right field.

The Senators finally got to Tatum who had allowed just two hits, in the bottom of the sixth inning. Tatum issued a walk to lead off batter Danny Mullins to start the inning. D.J. Edmondson, getting the start in the outfield, doubled off the left field wall to tie the game 1-1. Edmondson was then thrown out at the plate by right fielder Chuck Bedgoos on a single by Bob Machado. Shane Smallwood put Washington in front for the first iime driving in Machado with a single to left field.

Seattle responded with three runs in the seventh inning to take a 4-2 lead ad knock McKnight out of the game. John Henrich doubled and Stu Schwenk hit his first homerun of the season off McKnight, the second round tripper hit off the Washington ace in 29.2 innings this season.

One inning later Washington scored twice to take a 5-4 lead. Machado drew the fourth walk issued by Tatum leading off walk the inning for Washington. Smallwood singled to left field signaling the end for Tatum.
