The games served as a tune-up for the encounter with the Easley, S. C, team this Sunday and mark ed the final appearance of "Little Beaver" Nichols in an AH Star uniform. Nichols left Monday to take up his new duties in Atlanta. Right Foot First The locals got off on the right foot in the first game and scored four runs on three hits to take a lead which was never passed. A liberal sprinkling of errors aided the rally, considerably; only two of the runs being earned. The! fin al tally came in the sixth inning when the visitors unlimbered an error blizkreig to chase the run across without a bingle being chalked up. Gastonia racked up their two markers in the second and fourth innings and took seven hits to manufacture them. Hitting Honor In the K. O. department Nichols outscored ' Rankin of the visitors two to one while hitting honors for the day went to Martin, Nich ols and Tysinger with two hits apiece. While Frye of the visitors boosted" his average by getting three for four. The visitors outhit the locals nine to eight but the erratic field ing spelled the difference in the ball game. Bronvo In The Box The second game saw "Bromo" Higdon ascend the mound, and out pitch Stover of Gastonia as the locals went on to win. Again, a one-inning rally proved the decisive factor when the loc als unlimbered their big berthas in the fifth inning to score three runs on two singles, a double and a triple. The locals jumped into the lead in the first inning when "lover-boy" Martin received a free admission to finst to start the game, went to second on a sacrifice by Archer and score a few moments later on errors. The visitors came within a . hair of repeating their scoring prefor mance of Saturday by chalking up markers in the third and fourth innings. Higdon was nicked for four well scattered hits . and was never in serious trouble, while his mates were slugging out eleven hits. He accounted for six Gastonians by the strike out route while only two of the locals bowed out before Stover's collections of slants. Advices from down the line in dicate that weather permitting, the locals are in , for one of the sea Son's toughest struggles as the Easley crew is reputed to have a strong outfit and Manager Swan son of the locals promises plenty of action along with perhaps a few new faces in his line-up when the All Stars take the field around 3 p. m.
