Bobby Woodward and company sold out the Pendleton Buckaroos, lock, stock and barrell, at Rodeo field Sunday afternoon, ringing up the first shut-out for the locals this season. When the last ticker had tocked the tally sheet read 2-0. It was a grand day for Bobby, with a record of 17 assists, IS ol which were strikeouts. He allowed but a meager two hits, while behind him his teamates played errorless ball which allowed only five Pen dleton men to reach first base and only one to get as far as second. There were from one to three assists on every put out made by the locals except one, a fly ball taken by Cum mlngs in center field. Ronnie Gemmell, pitcher for the Helix champions In the Blue Moun tain league, also had a large day on the mound for Pendleton. He struck out fourteen batsmen and allowed but four hits. Four bobbles by his teammates were partly responsible for Heppner scoring. Homer Hayes scored the first run for Heppner in the third inning. He walked as first man up, held first as Cummings filed out to third and Thomson struck out took second as Gentry walked, and scored on Rob ertson's hit. Bucknum fanned to end the rally. Bucknum made the second score in the sixth inning. With one away, he hit safely and went second on a wild throw in from centerfleld, where he was con fined as Woodward fanned and Crawford walked, then scored on Fereuson's hit. Crawford was nabbed at home attempting to score on the play for the third out. Beautiful support for Woodward was largely responsible for only three batsmen facing him in any inning except the fourth. In the fifth, a doubtful decision kept Hepp ner from a double play, Ferguson to Gentry to Thomson, which would have closed the inning. Left forced Masters at second and was given a safety to first In an attempted steal shortly after, a beautiful peg by Robertson cut him off for the third out, and only three batsmen were recorded. Again in the sev enth, with the first two men put out, Ehler singled, but as he stepped away from the bag at first Robert son kept Wm from l(8 return by a quick peg to Thomson, and In the little game of three-handed dare base that ensued he was finally run down by Ferguson for the put out Next Sunday the Heppner gang journeys to Pendleton to play off the rubber as a result of last bun day's game, Pendleton having taken the first game from Heppner at Ukiah on the Fourth, 7-6.
