Red Faber went the distance for Guilford in the opener, scattering 10 hits and four walks. The spitballer induced three double plays. Larry Doby hit a three-run homer in the first inning off Ken Holloway. Rabbit Maranville bopped a pair of triples and added a single for the Quakers.
The Rams even the series in extra innings in the second game. Hack Wilson hit a two-run homer in the third to give Raymond a 3-0 lead, but the Quakers tied it in the bottom of the eighth. The 3-3 tie held into the 11th, when Nellie Fox doubled and went to third on Hank Greenberg's error in left field. Ray Schalk then bunted Fox home. Hooks Dauss pitched around a double (Rick Ferrell) and a single (Maranville) to nail it down.
The Quakers took the rubber game behind a six-run eighth inning against Gaylord Perry. Perry had retired two of the first three men he faced in the eighth, but Ferrell walked, Joe Tinker doubled, Maranville singled, pinch-hitter Cliff Heathcote walked, Max Carey doubled and Johnny Evers singled. That was enough to make a winner of Guy Bush, even though Vic Keen yielded a three-run homer to Wilson in the ninth.
Pitcher availability: For the Quakers, Keen and Bush each pitched one inning in the finale; everybody else in the bullpen is fully rested. The Rams' entire bullpen is fully rested for their next game.
Projected rotations: Quakers -- Lyons-Faber-Kaufmann-Aldridge-Lyons-Faber-Jacobs. Rams -- Ruffing-Collins-Holloway-Perry-Ruffing-Whitehill.
