'Babe' Cerv Hits Two Home
Runs in Saturday's Game
(Staff Sports Writer)
Although they weren't exactly a carbon copy of the
Yankee "Murder's Row" outfit of 1927, the Cornhusker
varsity nine did manage to hurdle past Luther College of
Decorah, Iowa in both ends o2 a double header last Friday
and Saturday on tne XNeorasKa diamond.
The Huskers slipped by Lu
ther 3-2 in the first game and
emerged with a 4-1 verdict in
the second outing.
In the first game a wild pitch
and an error at first base gave
Nebraska their win.
One Run Gift
At the start of the seventh in
ning Nebraska was ahead 2-1.
Then with one away, the Luther
pitcher walked Bill Fitzgerald.
He made it home after a pitched
ball hit home plate and got
away from First Baseman Emil
Hracek on the ' throw from
Pitcher Red Mellom.
The Huskers grabbed an early
lead in the opening frame when
two runners crossed the plate.
John Rego hit a bunt, got to
third on a hit by Bob Diers and
tallied on Bub Bahr's error. Bob
Cerv drove in Rego with the
only extra base hit of the game,
a double.
Luther found the scoring
eolmun in the second inning.
Hracek singled; made third on
an infield out and scored on
Catcher Lohregerg's passed ball.
Score in Eighth
Luther didn't score again until
the eighth inning. Dewey Boel
ter drew a free pass to first
base, Bahr singled, sending
Boelter to third and he scored
as Bob Rausch grounded out.
In the pitching department
Del Kopf and Bob Camp were
on the mound for Nebraska.
They gave up three hits. Kopf
whiffed six and Camp struck out
three. Kopf got credit for the
win. (
The Husker machine picked
up a little more momentum in
the second game on Saturday.
Crrv Opens Up
They started to work in the
opening frame on a single by
Bob Diers. Then Beltin' Bob
Cerv opened the heavy artillery
for Nebraska as he made the
little piece of horsehide clear the
fence for his first homer of the
day. This made the scoreboard
read 2-0.
During the early inning
Pitcher Ernest Behne keut the
Lutherans well in check. His
control was effective with strike
outs and pop outs keeping Lu
ther in hand.
The Lutherans got their only
run in the third inning. Behne
issued a free pass. The second
batter up sacrificed himself, ad
vancing the first man to second.
Then a double off Behne drove
in the Luther tally.
Scoreless Until Fifth
Tony Sharpe's squad were
held scoreless until the fifth in
ning. Then Bob Jensen got
things rolling with a smashing
double. Bob Diers grounded out
second to first but Cerv kept
things alive with a single, ad
vancing Jensen to third. Then
Jensen scored on a wild throw
bv the Luther shortstop. Ray
Mladovich and Bill Fitzgerald
both gounded out.
Things were pretty quiet then
until the seventh inning when
Cerv proved that his first cir
cuit clout was no fluke by send-

The Lutheran Student Association blasted its way to
a second consecutive Softball win Friday, trouncing the
University YMCA by a score of 20-0. The Lutherans
cracked out 18 safe hits in amassing their total while the
two Lutheran chuckers, Aden and Stauffer held the losers
to two. The win establishes the victors as a firm favorite
to cop the Interdenominational honors.
Pitcher Ray Bierber of Sigma
Gamma Epsilon hurled his mates
to their second consecutive vic
tory Friday, the Sig Gams win
ning 10-2 over the City YMCA.
Bierber pitched two hit ball in
chalking-up his second win of
the season while the Sig Gam
sluggers clouted YM chucker,
Stewart Minnick for 11 safeties.
Yelkin of the Sig Gams banged
out a home-run in the 5th inning
with the bases empty.
Bierber hurled a no-hit, no
run tame in the first Sig Gam
rame of the year against
ASMiS. Due to the unavaila
bility of the score books, pro
per publicity was not given
the feat at that time. The final
score was 10-0.
Defending Denominational
champion, Jnter Varsity kept its
slate clean in taking their sec
ond contest of the year, dropping
the Presbyterian Student House
by a 7-3 score. Lloyd Taplett, on
the mound for the I-V men, al
lowed the Presbys only four
hits, one of which was a home
run with one man on in tiie first
inning by Glenn Beerline, Pres
by third-sacker.
Brown Palace Wins
Brown Palace grabbed its first
win of the year being handed an
8-6 win over Delta Sigma Phi
by virtue of eight Delta Sig er
rors. Only one of the eight Pal
ace runs were earned, but the
final score doesn't care how the
runs were made. Keeping the
Delta Sig batting silenced was
