Dudley Takes House Crown With 4-3 Win

Lowell Loses, Moves Up in Straus Race


Commuter southpaw Eddie Snow went into a ball game against Kirkland yesterday afternoon at Soldiers Field with a record of a one-hitter and a two-hitter, and fashioned another two-hit game to lead Dudley into the 1950 House baseball championship.

Dudley edged the Deacons, 4 to 3.

The league lead doesn't give the Commuters enough points to lift them out of the collar of the Straus Trophy race, however. But Lowell, although dropping a playoff contest yesterday to Adams, 6 to 5, stands in a good position to gain at least ten points on Kirkland, current leader in trophy totals. The Deacons are currently only 31 1-2 points in the van.

Snow came into the game in the first inning with two on and one out and struck out nine Deacons in the abbreviated six inning game. Kirkland grabbed a one-run lead in the first when Bob Harper singled and came around on a steal, a passed ball, and an error.

Dudley bounced back with three in the second. Bill Monteith singled and stole second. Joe Garvin walked and Bob Karger doubled, scoring Monteith. Snow then singled in two of his own runs.

Billy Goldberg of Dudley singled in the top of the third and, after a steal and a passed ball, scored from third on a perfect squeeze play bunt by Don Cass. The last Kirkland tally came when Frank Nolan's single went through the left fielder's legs for a three-base error.

Lowell's first inning run, scored by John Goldsmith, was tied in the last of the first by three Adams singles. The Bellboys went into a three-run lead in the third on a double by Goldsmith and a triple by Frank Lionette.

Then Adams scored five runs in the fourth on three hits and two errors by the catcher. Rog Davis struck out the first two Gold Coasters to face him in the fifth, and, with the tying run on base, forced the last batter to pop to second.
