Galveston Daily News (Newspaper) - August 24, 1922, Galveston, Texas THE GALVESTON DAILY NEWS. THUESDAY. AUGUST 24. 1922. GASSERS MAKE IT TWO STRAIGHT FROM CRABS, 5 TO 3 TEXAS 1JEAGCE. Homers Account for Calendar Runs Made Off Knight? Lohman Holds the Crabs BY ANGUS L. PAUKER. If ihe Shreveport Gassers could only get a few more sick ones in their ranks, they might cause trouble to a lot of pennant contenders, for with a makeshift ball club they made our own mangled Spudders like it yesterday in their second straight win from the home crowd, 5 to 3. Although the Gasmen hud but one athlete in his regular position, other than the battery pair, they played a bang-up game in the field and hit enough home runs to beat Jack Knight. Each and every one of the Gassers' five markers were results of home runs. Aside from those homers, Knight pitched a good game. While the men-of Louisiana were Baberuthing the game on ice for Zeke Lohman, the old boy was turning in one of those exceptionally good games that he is wont to do every so often. suf- fered one embarrassing inning, in which the Sand- crabs got four of their seven hits and all of their three runs, but except for that one bad frame the embarrassment was all on the part of the Crabs. The three homers that meant the doom of another ball game for our hopefuls came from the bats of George Jackson, Slim MeUrew and Hoy Storey.

Little Joe Munson's being out of the took away no small amount of punch from the Crab attack, and had he been in there those necessary tlmely bingles to start the thing or finish it alter somebody else had started it might have been forthcoming. Nor was there another outfielder take Munson's place, for Jlmmie Thrash, like Munson, joined the ranks of the hospital brigade yes- terday. Two of the Crab tick ones out in uniform, however, to offset the Ifttrst loss. Ad rierotti and Scrappy Moore both were on the scene in battle togs again and be readv to go in shortly. Although the Gassers have but two mon mil of it. their loss caused Manager Vann to shift his team into all kinds of queer shapes. A pitcher and an inflelder were played in the outfield and two outfield'-rs anil a catcher on the infield, with the fourth iufieldi-r shifted from liis regular position. All of this had little to do with the or thofe Gassers. though. lor they all played their new place.-; well. Lloyd Smith, former Pandcrah, was called upon to handle several hard changes in center and he cared for them 'ike. u regular outfielder. Slim Mdjruw in right had but two chances and handled them both. lloth Field Writ. As for the fielding end of it. the makeshift Crabs also did a good job of it find no errors were charged to either side. There was but one play not, hrtndU-d perfectly on the part of the Crub fielders and even in that I'lay there Is a certain amount of satisfaction for the close observers.
