Huskies Nip Ducks, 2-1,
With Ninth Inning Rally
Ford ‘Cuffs’ Oregon
With Seven Blows
By LEE FLATBERG
A Washington uprising- in the ninth inning yesterday on
the “Mud Flats,” spiced with an argument, garnered two big
runs for the Huskies and gave Tubby Graves and Co. a 2 to 1
win over the Ducks. The two teams will battle it out again
this afternoon at 3.
The Huskies came to bat in the top of the ninth trailing

blasted a double to right field.
Hal Logan followed suit with a
looping single to center to send
Boddy to third.
Then the squeeze was on. Bod
dy was off with the pitch and
Dave Gordan laid a bunt down
third base line. Begleries fielded
the ball but his throw to Ted Pil
ip was high and glanced off his
glove and Boddy was safe. Logan
went to third on the play and
came steaming into the plate but
was shooed back by Spec Burke.
The Washington hoys were
off the bench immediately, led
by the colorful Graves. Words
were flung a,round. Burke stood
pat on his decision that the
runner was entitled to only one
base on the play and the Hus
kies went back to their bench.
But the Huskies weren't
through. Bob Bird banged out a
long fly to center and Logan
scored the winning run when Fil

very close play at the plate.
As usual, the game had to be
played on the very gooey sur

some beautiful ball, with only one
error being made.
