Miners Get One-Run Win at Chicago
Both teams had their chances, but the Pittsburgh Miners eventually prevailed.

The Pittsburgh Miners had to overcome a fine effort from Chicago pitcher Les Zoller to grab a narrow 4-3 win at Whitney Park. Zoller went 9 innings and allowed 4 runs. Pittsburgh pitcher Lefty Allen got the win, upping his record to 6-4. Les Zoller got the loss. Speed Brown notched his 2nd save in 2 chances.

Mahlon Strong, who finished 4th in the FA in doubles with 33 in 1941, aided the Pittsburgh cause with a run-scoring walk in the top of the seventh. For the game, the right fielder went 1 for 4 with a walk.

Strong told a Pittsburgh Observer reporter that he was "more than satisfied" with the win.

The Miners, now 35-38, have won 4 in a row.
