Bucs Take On Toronto & Chicago!

Pittsburgh Pirates

Iron City Base Ball

by "Shakey" McGuiness
Legends League correspondent



Johnny MizeToronto (AP) The Bucs wrapped their six game roll through Toronto today, although George Bell and the Jays offered a spirited defense on the last day of series. After falling behind 6-1 courtesy of some another multiple hit game from Rogers Hornsby (running his hit streak to 19), as well as a moon shot from Turkey Stearnes and a pair of triples from resurgent "Jumbo" Kimbro, the hometowners rallied for five big runs to tie the contest in the bottom of the sixth. After spit baller Eddie Walsh was removed from the game, diminutive reliever Bobby Shantz and his array of pitches was brought in the protect the lead. It seemed a safe bet, but he was immediately greeted by a three base safety by Paul Molitor and and single by Santiago to plate him. After Rickey Henderson singled, player-manager Keith Hernandez drew a base on balls to load the sacks for the beleaguered Toronto left fielder. But on a 1-0 count Bell connected on a knuckle ball that just didn't move enough and he placed it deep down the left field line, good for four bags and four more runs, knotting the game at six. The Jays fans weren't able to celebrate long, however, as in the very next inning, Johnny Mize blasted a Mussina offering into the right field bleachers to give the Bucs the lead again, this time for good. Troy Percival finished up to gain his fourth save as the Bucs swept the six game uber-series.

Pittsburgh (AP) The first and second place clubs clashed today for the first game of a six game set, with the newly activated Cuban superstar Martin "El Maestro" Dihigo on the mound for the Cubs and "The Big Unit", Randy Johnson, going for the Bucs. The game started off as a pitching duel, as expected. It remained scoreless after four and a half innings. The Bucs then drew first blood in the bottom of the fifth when Randy Johnson, the unlikeliest batter of all, plated Turkey Stearnes with a line drive base hit to left. But the Cubs stormed back and took the lead in the next inning when Heavy Johnson slammed a Johnson fastball into the left field sets with Cobb aboard. 2-1, Cubs. Not to be outdone, the Bucs tied the game again when Henry Kimbro launched a shot of his own that was good for four bases. The Cubs came back and took a big lead the next inning when Cobb smashed a bases loaded trey to bust the game open at 5-2. That knocked Johnson and his ten Ks out of the game, but the Bucs weren't done yet. Three straight singles by Judy Johnson, Gabby Hartnett and pinch-hitter Brian Giles made it a 5-3 game. When "Big Ed'" Delahanty connected for a booming two bagger, it was all even once again, and now Dihigo was gone, as was the pitching duel. It was now a see-saw slugfest of an affair. The Cubs scored the final and decisive run in the eighth as Chino Smith, the ex-Buc, singled to start things off. With two down Fats Jenkins came through with a double past Judy Johnson at third, and the Cubs had gained the first victory of the series. As an added bonus for the Cubbies, they broke the red hot Hornsby's hit streak off at 19, preserving Kimbro's modest record of 22 straight games with a safety.


Game Two pitted knuckler Charlie Hough against spit baller Henry Coveleski. This game started out as a pitcher's duel, and unlike game one, finished the same way. It was a beauty, featuring complete games by both hurlers, and a 1-0 final score. The only run came via the man who was finally shut down in the first game, Rogers Hornsby. Rajah went deep of Mr. Hough in the sixth, pulling a stray fastball deep into the Forbes bleachers for what turned out to be the decisive blow. The rest of the game belonged to Coveleski, who held the visitors to just three singles awhile allowing a like number of walks in his first shutout of the season. The reigning ERA champ lowered this season's number to a still high 4.46, while his opponent, who certainly pitched well enough to win this game, saw his own ERA drop to a minuscule 1.06, a number which currently puts him atop the league's leader board.


Game Three had fire baller Bob Feller going against Cuban sensation Jose Munoz, possessor of both an impressive fastball and a screwball perhaps second only to Mathewson's. The Cubs jumped all over Feller in this game right from the start, plating four in the first. Highlights were p[rovided via a Dandridge triple and a Santop two bagger. The Bucs managed to play small ball to get back a run in the bottom of the frame, but the Cubs got that right back in inning two when Ty went deep off Rapid Robert. By the sixth, Feller was long gone and the score stood at 7-1, Cubs. The Pirates did mount a comeback, but ultimately they fell  well short and the Chicagoans prevailed by a 7-4 tally. This left the Bucs with a game and a half lead over the Cubs, with three games to go in the series. It's still very early in the season, but both teams seem to realize that these head to head  games are indeed important affairs
