1946 Game Reports, Intercounty League     


(May 21)   Bill Wagner shutout London on a two-hitter as Galt downed the Majors 1-0.  It was the third time in four games London has lost by a 1-0 count.  For Wagner, it was his second shutout of the young season.  He's allowed just five hits in 18 innings so far. Chuck Mercer was almost as good for London, firing a three-hitter.  The only run came in the 8th inning.  Pinch-hitter Tubby Jones drew a base on balls with Tommy White coming in to run for Jones.  On a play on Wagner, Liscombe threw wildly, sending White all the way to third.  Batting for Wally Woods, Clare Van Horn drew a walk to load the bases and, on Ken McFadden's drive to second, Bain made a nice play to get a force at second, but White came around to score.

(May 21)   Pinch-hitter Gord McGraw drove in Ayres in the 11th inning to give Stratford Nationals a 7-6 win over Waterloo Tigers.  Ayres had doubled with one down. It was the third straight triumph for the Nats who blew a 5-0 lead before coming through in extra innings. The Tigers pecked away finally knotting the count at 6-6 with two runs in the 9th on three singles and a two-base error.  Third baseman Miskimmons drove in three runs for the winners. Ayres was the only Stratford batter with more than one hit, with a double and single.  He scored twice.
