Washington Blasts Ducksl9-4
Huskies Pound Out.
17-Hit Barrage off Four
A young and vigorous University of Washington baseball
team rose to fine heights yesterday, plastering a 19-4 loss on the
Northern Division leaders, Oregon, on Howe field.
While the Webfoots were being effectively held in check by
Bob Moen, a sophomore southpaw, Art McLarney’s crew slam
med 17 safeties off a quartet of Duck hurlers for an easy triumph.
The same two teams go again this afternoon at 2 :00 to wind
up tne series.
Moen was untouchable in the
clutch. Only Johnny Kovenz
and Walt Kirsch solved him for
more than one hit, Kovenz get
ting a beautiful homer over the
right field fence in the first and
a single in the third while Kirsch
picked up two singles. The Wash
ington portsider kept control of the
game and was especially effective
in the clutch. He whiffed seven.
THE HUSKIES started early,
knocking the Webfoot Starter Mel
Krause in the first with only one
down. They chased across four tal
lies in that frame before Homer
Bropst put out the fire.
Oregon countered with Kovenz'
four-master, and with Bropst stop
ping Washington for the next two
innings, things were looking up.
Hut the Huskies picked up twb
more in the fourth, then drove
Biropst from the hill in the fifth
with a five run outburst. Hal Zur
clier moved in from center field and
yielded one of the runs before get
ting the side out.
When the sixth opened, Sopho
more Jim Hanns was chucking for
the Ducks, and was promptly greet
ed with another five-run inning. A
single run in the eighth and two in
the ninth ended their scoring.
OREGON SHOWED signs of
life in tin' seventh, picking up two
runs, ami again in the ninth when
