night as he had done on opening day when the Yankees beat Perry 6-1 in New York Springstead questioned only one pitch in the eighth inning of the Indians 9-1 first victory in six games this season And bv that time it didn t matter And the home plate umpire didn t even bother warning Perry only cautioning catcher Dave Duncan that the pitch looked suspicious Perry said Springstead called an excellent
