Bad news from Boston, better news from Richmond

Boston Herald, Monday, April 21

Dinneen Wins First Boston Victory in Ten Games, 4-2

NEW YORK- The beleaguered Pilgrims finally snapped the disastrous spell that has plunged them into the American League basement yesterday with a 4-2 victory over the Highlanders.

Righthander Bill Dinneen had the stuff to turn back the New Yorkers, despite three miscues by Boston fielders, including Chet Chadbourne's sixth bobble of the season at the keystone sack.

Buck Freeman had two hits for the winners, while no Highlander made more than a single safety off Dinneen.

Word from Richmond has it that two young players whom Manager Collins sent to the Colts for some experience have shown well in their time in Virginia.

Catcher Bill Carrigan has slammed three home runs and is hitting .343, while second baseman Pat O'Farrell is swinging at a hearty .446 clip. Not surprisingly, the Richmond club has won 15 of its first 18 contests.
