June 9, 1950 (Friday) - Philadelphia, PA

W/L record 26-26 (.500), T3rd place, 4.5 GB, Streak W1, Last10 6-4

The Philadelphia Athletics took game three in fine fashion against the Chicago White Sox Friday night at Shibe Park, 8-4.

Behind another strong pitching performance by ace starter Bobby Shantz, the A's sent the Sox packing. Shantz pitched another complete game, raising his season win total to 9, tops in the American League. Shantz also helped his cause with a two RBI day.

The A's offense jumped on Chicago's Max Surkont (L,4-2) early with five runs in the second inning and coasted the rest of the way.

"We feel good after taking two of three against Chicago", said manager Nicholas Morgan after the game. "We've been playing .500 ball most of the season, and this win should give us some momentum going forward."

The win keeps the Athletics on pace in the tight American League chase. "If we hold our own, we might be a contender late in the season" says Morgan.

Philadelphia hosts the Cleveland Indians this weekend for three games before embarking on a two-week, 13-game road trip.
