The Moler boys, Bruce P. of the Indians, and Bruce Webster of the Cubs, provided some exciting home run hitting as did Jeff Anders of the Cubs; A. Carroll of the Indians and P. Anders of the Indian.s pulled off the first and only triple of the season against the Braves; and Bruce P. Moler, turned in some fine pitch- ing again,st the Giants, coming up with a one-hitter. In the torried battle to take over the league lead, both the Cubs and Indians scored a pair of victories in last week's action, leaving the Cubs still a hMf game in front of the Indians. One of the best individ~ual per- formances of the entire season was turned in Tuesday evening, July 5, by Bruce P. Moler, who pitched and batted the Ind~ians to a 7-I victory over the Giants to hm~d the Giants a real setback in their bid to take over the lea- gue read. Moler gave up a single to Seal of the Giants in the first frame, and from then on he pitched per- fect ball with the only other base runners coming as the result of two Indian errors. Moler helped his own cause in the second frame by putting the Indians in fro~t 2-0 with a home run with a man aboard.
