A Royal Reception

Kansas City Monarchs

Kansas City Monarchs Season Opening Series

by "King" Cole
Union League correspondent
Monarchs Base Ball

Mel OttGame 1 @ Newark -  On a sloppy field, arguably the two best pitchers in the Union League squared off in the first game of the season.  The first two Monarch batters reached, but then Paige proceeded to strike out the 3, 4, and 5 hitters in order.  Paige displaying his incredible talent, but the baserunners were foreshadowing for the rest of the game.  In the bottom of the first, Homerun Johnson tripled to deep left center.  Reporters noticed Jethroe lost the ball in the sun, as he does not allow extra-base hits in the gaps.  Jackie Robinson went deep in the 2nd inning to tie it up at 1-1.  It was not until the 6th inning when Pedro Martinez hit an RBI single with 2 outs to break the tie.  In the 7th, Jackie Robinson struck out with runners on 2nd and 3rd with 1 out, and received a stern talking to from the manager when he reached the dugout.  To lead off the bottom of the 8th, Pettus pushed Pedro to a full count and then hit a HR to right.  In the top of the 9th, runner on, Rivera comes in to face Ott.  That cutter might make him tougher to face against LHP in real life, but Ott will have none of it in DMB.  He proceeds to take him deep.  Kansas City added another run off of the 'best' closer.  Dave Smith came in to shut the door in the bottom of the 9th, but gave up 3 singles to loade the bases.  Up comes Pettus, who already has already went deep once, but he can't catch lightning in the bottle twice and Kansas City takes it 5-2.

Mel OttGame 2 @ Newark -  The scoring starts in the 2nd inning as Newark RF Larry Doby makes his second error in as many games to let a run score.  In the 3rd inning, Ott hits a 3 run homer to give Kansas City the early 4-0 lead.  Three Finger Brown continues to cruise until the bottom of the 6th, when things get interesting.  Larry Jones, Pete Hill, and Buck Leonard are the main contributors in a 7 run inning that puts Newark up 7-4.  However, the resilient Kansas Monarchs would chip away at the 3 run lead.  They got back one in the 7th and two in the 8th.  In the top of the 9th, Ott and Terry hit back to back extra base hits to put Kansas City up 8-7 and Dave Smith would go on to put the game away.



Tim RainesGame 3 @ Detroit -  Kansas City was up 5-0 by the end of the second inning thanks to 4 RBIs in the first two innings by Bill Terry.  With Gibson, the most intimidating pitcher of all time, on the mound the game should have been over.  But it was not to be.  Cochrane went deep in the bottom of the 2nd.  Kansas City stretched the lead to 6-2 in the top of the 5th, but Detroit would answer right back with a 2-run HR courtesy of Babe Ruth.  KC would add yet another run in the 7th, courtesy of a Bob Gibson sac fly.  The game Detroit Tigers would come back in the bottom of the 8th.  After an infield single from Ruth and a walk from McCovey, Kirk Gibson steps to the plate.  The computer manager brought in Thornton Lee to play the percentages, which is what smart managers do to win ballgames.  Gibson didn't seem to care that Lee is left-handed and proceeded to put the 2-0 offering into the stands.  Lee then gave up a walk-off HR to Tim "Rock" Raines in the bottom of the 9th.  Such careless pitching will surely be remembered when the next MP is submitted.

Bob StanleyGame 4 @ Washington -  The scoring began with all-star catcher Cal McVey picking up an RBI single in the bottom of the 4th.  That is all they would get however, as Bob Stanley went into American League Park and had a complete game, 1-run outing.  Ott and Pelayo Chacon went deep which was enough to give the 5-1 win.  Washington had loaded the bases in the bottom of the 9th, but neither George Davis nor Red Smith were able to capitalize.  At the end of the first game session, KCM is 3-1 with a +7 run differential without playing even a single game at home.  Their owner is very pleased with how their season has started.
