McCullough’s Clout off Blackwell
Gives Bucs Heart-Warming 2-1 Win
Clyde McCullough founda good way to stay warm on a cold night
a brisk trot around the bases.McCullough tagged a 3-1 pitch from Cincin-
nati’s Ewell Blackwell for a game
-winninghome run in the bottom of the ninth inning Fri-day, giving the National League leading Pitts- burgh Pirates a 3-2 victory.
The temperature for Friday’s 8:30 p.m. first
pitch was 45 degrees. It was colder still when
McCullough, the Bucs’ 34
-year-old backstop,dug in for his fourth at-bat of the evening.The game at that point seemed destined for extra innings. Both clubs scored twice in thefirst inning, the Reds on run-scoring hits byTed Kluszewski and Johnny Wyrostek, and thePirates on a two-run single by George Strick-land.Then Blackwell and Pittsburgh starter Murray Dickson turned stingy, as they had dur-ing their April 22 pitchers duel in Cincinnati.Blackwell lost that one, 2-1, in 12 innings. Butthere was no forestalling defeat Friday.Blackwell fell to 1-2 in three starts, allagainst Pittsburgh, allowing three runs on sixhits in eight innings. Dickson (1-0) held theReds to two runs on seven hits.The Pirates marked their third day in first place, equaling their total from last season.

Chandler and Mulbry, long-time friends, had a falling out recently. Chandler believes Mulbry had
