Burdick, it seems, was given to understatement.
The magnificent arm did not respond, so even as he split between Modesto and Dic,s Rapids, all he could do was hope for a miracle that never came.

Initially a third baseman, the boy quickly discovered his gift for pitching, and in one remarkable stretch that year tossed four consecutive no-hitters. His dominance was so complete that he struck out the side in the fourth and fifth innings, and had at least two strikeouts in every inning except the sixth.
Brinkman, various s agree, blew the call at first base. We will have whole idcks, drumsticks, thighs, breasts, liver, hearts, gizzards and necks.
