4-1 Victory Puis Senators Back
let First Division; Lineup Shift
By At Llghtner
1 Statesman .Sport Editor
Bus rer may never have been much more 'wild than he was
In his Waters field stint last night against the Victoria Athletics. But
at the ane time he perhaps never had more stuff on his casts. Final
result:, A 4-1 Salem win over the lowly Athletics, the captain of
which was Burly Bui and a two-hit mound job despite the fact that
he kepi his sortie on the antagonistic side by virtue of nine bases on
balls. We win, fifth of the campaign by Roseburg Bus, pulled the
Senators" beck to a .500 percentage in the standings and a perch once
again In the first division.
The two clubs go at it again tonight at eight o'clock, and Big Jim
Olsen will be on the Salem mound after his eighth win of the season.
His opponent? Chances are Mgr. Ted Norbert of the last-place Athle
tics only wishes he had someone like Jo Blankenship, Len Kasparo
vich. Bill Woop or the likes to toss aWthe locals.
Norberf selecte last night, a right hard-throwing Larry Ward,
was almost as wild as Sporer, and because of it got himself whipped
In the early innings when Salem tallied single rum In the first four
frames. Walks figured in every one. Just as they did in the loner
scored off Sporer In the fifth. Bus passed four in a row for that one.
On the more artistic side, the only hits gleaned off Bus' quick one
and sharp curve were by rrank Match in the fourth and Pinch
hitter Dick Morgan in the ninth. Matoh's was a bouncer down the
third base Una that went for a double, and Morgan' was a s ingle shot
Into left between snort and third. j
The Salem runs came thusly: In the first. Bud Peterson walked
and stols second, therein setting a precedent. By no later than the
third Inning, no les than six atolen bases were i registered by the
Solons and In trying to catch the fleeing athletes doing their pilfering.
Catcher Bdb Day committed two errors on bad throws.
All this and Ward's fres tickets to first base, plus timely clutch
hitting by Mel Wasley, wayne -e-terson
and Bob Cherry, brought In
the runs. Wasley singled across
Bud Peterson In the first, and
Wayne Peterson Deiiea "croa
Marty Krug In the second. Larry
Ortelg's hit, and two stolen bases,
along with Cherry's fly-out In the
third netted another tally. Two
walks .one of Day's bad throws
and Wsyne Peterson's fly speared
No 4 In the fourth.
The deluge of stolen bases and
walks oeased from there on and
Ward, exhibiting some fine stuff,
halted the locals. But there Just
wasn't to be any scoring off Sporer
In other than his one four-walks
Inning, so Ward's sterling efforts
went for nil.
Of equal importance ss the win
to the customers was the fact that Slnovic, after sitting around
for a few days doing nothing, fin
ally appeared In the regular line
up. The "Rapping Richard" of last
"year's outfit he hit .332 played
right field. ThaUmove brought
shout two changes in the lineup-;
I.arry Orteig was shifted to third
base and Bob Hedington, who has
been playing some gTeat third sack
lately, was benched. Chances are
Hedington will be sold, traded or
released. . . ...
, Sinovic failed to hit safely in
four tries he hit a couple pretty
h ird at that but it will take a
ltttle time for the recent baseball
Gulliver to settle down. Slnovic been everywhere from River
si ie, Cel., to Macon. Ga , so far
this season, with plenty of way
p-nnts. . , . .
s a nnv rata he's back in har
ness, and should provide plenty of
punch and color to the local out

Going Good
Marty Krug (above) may not have
clicked well with the Portland
Beavjrrs this season, er was he
a ball of fire as regular first
baseipaii with the Senators ; in
19474 But since rejoining the lo
cals recently. Marty has shown
gTeat Improvement as a hitter
and ts holding his own with the
club's top swstsmen.
Salem rolled all its .offensive
into H'O big innings, scoring four
runs In the third and five in the
seventh. Mt. Angel scored its
lone run on a hit by Bielemeier, a
stolen; base, a wild pitch and an
error on second baseman Jacob
son. !
Three hits, two errors and a
base pn balls gave the Salem
their four runs in the third. Stew
art led off with a double, and
Jacobson added a single before
Ron Parsons cleared the bases.
The;, seventh was the big inn
ing fot Biil Hanauska's crew. Four
hits, 11 of them singles, a Mt
Angel error and a couple of stolen
gases netted five runs and clinched
the game for the visiting Salem
The victory kept Salem's victory
string unblemished in 1949 Legion
