J0S1ES WIN WHEN
Wayne Hurls Good Ball for Six
. Sounds, But Blows in the
HAS HIMSELF TO BLAME
After hurling pretty (air ball for
sue innings, .Wayne Barham, Van
' couver recruit, qualified as a first-class
aviator in the seventh and eighth
I spasms of yesterday's pastime and the
1 pesky Drummers bowled Pa Rourke's
athletes over to the tune of 7 to 3.
, Wayne has nobody but himself to
I blame, although a decision by Marty
J Krug may have had something to do
with the defeat. With two men on
. base in the seventh, Barham fielded
, Kirkham's sacrifice bunt, but hesitated
i too long in deciding whether to throw
' the ball to first or third. Everybody
i was safe as a result and it gave the
! Josies a chance to start the fireworks.
After Schick opened the seventh
with a two-base knock to right, which
McCabe should have caught but let
get away from him, Krug ordered
Burg to bunt. Joe obeyed orders and
Schick was thrown out at third. The
Rourkcs might have put over a couple
of runs if Krug had told Burg to hit
Barham got away to a more or less
bad start in the first when Shay, Mc
Cabe and Kirkham made singles,
which netted one tally.
Omaha tied the count in the sec
ond on Bradley's single, Krug's sacri
fice, an error by McClelland and
Omaha Scores Two.
St. Joseph chalked up a second run
) in the third on Moore's double and
j McClelland's single. They held this
lead until the sixth, when Omaha
. registered two scores.
Earl Smith gave the frame a start
' with a double. Bradley went out, but
iKrug tripled to left, scoring bmith,
. and came home himself a moment
later when Shaw whanged a three
ply blow into center.
The Drummers resumed leadership
in the seventh, however, and kept it
. until the end of the game. Shay
walked to open the fatal frame and
McCabe beat out a bunt. Kirkham
bunted and Barham let the bases fill
up because he didn't know what to do
with the ball. Moore popped up, but
Irelan made a bad throw to Bradley
after the catch and Shay hiked home,
while McCabe sneaked to third. He
scored on McClelland's sacrifice fly.
The eighth was another bad round
for our side. Bob Smith singled to
open and after Henry whiffed Hovlik
walked. Shay sent Smith and Hovlik
home, with a triple and scored him
self on Kirkham's infield bingle.
Baldy Isbell's Wichita aggregation
comes to . Omaha today for four
games. All games start at 3:15.

Tex Jones, Eddie Hahn and Baker are

The rest of the jobbers except Koeatner.
Coy and Goodwin are new men,

Powell must have thought he was Ty Cobb
or Trls Speaker. t
Krug shot Tony Brottem Into the game
to pinch hit for Barham In the eighth.
Tony hit the ball almost to the flagpole,
but It was high and Wright captured It.
O' Toole finished the game by retiring three
Drummers In a row.
