McCullough’s Clout off Blackwell Gives Bucs Heart-Warming 2-1 win
PITTSBURGH — Clyde McCullough found a good way to stay warm up a cold night — a brisk trot around the bases. McCullough tagged a 3-1 pitch from Cincinnati’s Ewell Blackwell for a game-winning home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Friday, giving the National League leading Pittsburgh 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 the first inning, the Reds on run-scoring hits by Ted Kluszewski and Johnny Wyrostek, and the Pirates on a two-run single by George Strickland. Then Blackwell and Pittsburgh starter Murray Dickson turned stingy, as they had during their April 22 pitchers duel in Cincinnati. Blackwell lost that one, 2-1, in 12 innings. But there was no forestalling defeat Friday. Blackwell fell to 1-2 in three starts, all against Pittsburgh, allowing three runs on six hits in eight innings. Dickson (1-0) held the Reds to two runs on seven hits. The Pirates marked their third day in first place, equaling their total from last season. AROUND THE HORN Elsewhere around the National League: Bob Schultz fired a two-hit shutout in his first major league start as the Cubs defeated the Cardinals, 3-1. Schultz (1-0), in just his second big league appearance, allowed a run-scoring single to St. Louis catcher Del Rice in the top of the second, and a single to leadoff hitter Peanuts Lowery in the eighth. He struck out three and walked six. For good measure, he singled home the goahead run in the bottom of the second in his first major league at-bat. The game capped a remarkable year for Schultz, who served in the Marines during World War II. Before the 1950 season, he was released by the Chicago White Sox after three years in their farm system. Acquired by the Cubs for the $2,500 Bob Schultz waiver fee, Schultz went 25-6 — with 18 victories coming in succession — for Triple-A Nashville. In New York, the Giants routed Warren Spahn yet again in a 14-5 win over Boston. Spahn (1-2) gave up six runs on seven hits (two of them home runs) in four innings. On April 19, he was driven to cover in the first inning by the Giants, allowing eight runs. Alvin Dark and Ray Noble both homered and drove in four runs for New York. Jim Hearn (30) allowed five runs in eight innings, becoming the majors’ first three-game winner. Boston’s Sam Jethroe homered three times and drove in five runs. He leads the league in hitting, and is runner-up in homers and RBI. Gene Hermanski lined a two-run, go-ahead single in the top of the eighth inning as the Dodgers beat the Phillies, 7-5, at Shibe Park. Red-hot Duke Snider had two singles, a double and drove in three runs for Brooklyn, which moved into second place. Joe Hatten (1-1) got the win, allowing four runs in seven innings. The Phillies’ Bubba Church (0-1) took the loss, allowing seven runs (four earned) in 7 2/3 innings. Church allowed 10 hits and walked five. Brooklyn’s Gil Hodges was ejected for arguing a called third strike in the eighth inning.

Boudreau Shakes Off Cold, Provides Fire for Sox
BOSTON — Lou Boudreau is supplying the fire the Red Sox are supposed to lack — he wins ball games while playing with a fever. He was a hot man in more ways than one Friday when he shrugged off a case of the grippe and supplied the spark that gave Boston its second straight victory over the New York Yankees, 6-5. Boudreau’s double in the bottom of the seventh inning scored Dom DiMaggio to break a 4-4 tie. Mel Parnell (2-0) made the lead stand up, allowing five runs in his second consecutive complete game. New York’s Vic Raschi (1-1) took the loss, allowing five runs — including Bobby Doerr’s tying three run home run in the fourth — in 6 2/3 innings. Doerr has two home runs and seven RBI in his past two games. AROUND THE HORN Elsewhere in the American League: Elmer Valo’s two-run triple highlighted a five-run first inning as the visiting Philadelphia Athletics routed the Washington Senators, 11-2. The A’s made short work of Nats starter Sandy Consuegra (1-1), who gave up five runs in one-third of an inning. Philly added four more runs in the third, making it an easy night for Carl Scheib (2-1), who held Washington to two runs in 8 1/3 innings. Scheib also contributed two hits and three RBI to the winning effort.

Owners Unsure if Chandler Will Resign
NEW YORK (AP) — When will baseball commissioner A.B. Chandler resign? Or will he? That was the question foremost in the minds of baseball executives now that Walter Mulbry is out as secretary-treasurer. Chandler, who has insisted he would not quit unless Mulbry was relieved of his post, gained his point Friday when baseball’s executive council accepted Mulbry’s resignation. Chandler and Mulbry, long-time friends, had a falling out recently. Chandler believes Mulbry had something to do with club owners denying his bid for a new term as commissioner. Notes on the Scorecard However, there were hints that the commissioner, whose term does not expire until April 30, 1952, may decide to stay in office. Chandler made no comment, but a close friend said he did not expect the commissioner NEW YORK — Joe DiMaggio was to visit to resign soon.
