June 7, 1950 (Wednesday) - Philadelphia, PA

W/L record 25-25 (.500), 3rd place, 4.5 GB, Streak W1, Last10 5-5

The Philadelphia Athletics hung on and defeated the Chicago White Sox last night by the score of 3-2.

A's starter Alex Kellner went the distance, picking up his 3rd win of the season. He also was named player of the game for his performance, striking out five. His outing was solid through eight innings but ran into a mild charge from the heart of the Chicago lineup in the ninth.

The A's snapped a consecutive two-game shutout streak by scoring three runs off Sox starter Bill Wight. Wight (L, 7-5) walked an uncharacteristically high six batters.

The Philadelphia offense broke through their offensive slump in the fourth inning with a one-out two-RBI single from veteran outfielder Wally Moses. Moses, 39, lifts his RBI total to 11 on the year.

The two teams meet again Thursday night for the second game of a three-game set. Philadelphia sends Bob Hooper (4-1, 2.28 ERA) to the mound to face Bob Kuzava (6-5, 4.29 ERA) of the White Sox.
