June 6, 1950 (Tuesday) - Philadelphia, PA

W/L record 24-25 (.490), T-4th place, 4.5 GB, Streak L2, Last10 5-5

The A's fell to the St. Louis Browns last night at Shibe park by the score of 2-0. The A's have been struggling behind the plate recently, and have not scored a run in more than two straight games. The current drought stands at 25 consecutive scoreless innings. The offensive woes run even deeper, as they have been shut out in three of their last four games.

Lefty starter Lou Brissie (L, 8-2) gets saddled with the loss, though he pitched well enough to get player of the game award. Brissie was serving up a two-hit shutout into the 9th until he gave up a two out, two-run home run off the bat of Billy Johnson, his second of the year.

The defeat was a disappointment to the Athletics who were hoping to take two of three games from the Browns. Though the A's bats have been slumping of late, they out-hit St. Louis 7-3.
