| || Casstevens Batters Philadelphia for 5 Hits |
Friday, April 22nd, 1927
It's not something you read about in the sports pages every day -- a 5-for-5 day. For many, it might come around only once in a career -- and for Clint Casstevens, it came around today.
The 30-year-old right fielder scattered hits all over Fitzpatrick Park to pace the Pittsburgh Miners to a 9-2 victory over the Philadelphia Keystones.
Philadelphia skipper Len Cooper told reporters in the press room that "Casstevens deserves a hat-tip."
"He hit some good pitches against us," he said. "In fact, according to our scouting reports, Casstevens hit several that he is not supposed to be able to hit."
Clint Casstevens hit an RBI single in the 1st, hit a solo-shot off John Tucker in the 3rd, hit a two-run double in the 4th, singled in the 6th and singled in the 8th.
To date Casstevens has chalked up a .204 average with 1 home run, driven in 8 runs and scored 4 times.
