Slip the glad hand to George Foster. He “came back” with a whoop yesterday, breaking into that select no-hit-no-run set, blanking Bill Donovan’s boys 2 to 0. The Broadway tribe had about as much chance of getting a base knock off the Oklahoma farmer as they have of changing the situation in Mexico.
While George had a heap of stuff, an airtight defense was of inestimable value to him in attaining the honor that is the ambition of every pitcher. George has come close to pitching a no-hit game before, but yesterday he blazed through those nine frames with all the confidence in the world. He seemed to feel that he had a no-hit game up his sleeve and that it had to come out.
