Bowman Holds Chicago Scoreless
There was no spell, no black magic -- just good pitching.

Ed Bowman of the New York Gothams blanked the Chicago Chiefs, 5-0, at Whitney Park today, and he did it the old-fashioned way. After finishing the 4-hit, complete-game shutout, he was all smiles.

"I threw a lot of my pitches for strikes in this game," Bowman said. "I mixed it up and tried keeping these guys off balance."

Bowman walked 3 and struck out 6 in the victory.

"He was throwing his breaking ball for strikes and we never capitalized on any of his mistakes," Chiefs manager Joe Ward said later.

In the current season in 20 starts, Ed Bowman has a record of 9-8 with 80 strikeouts in 168.2 innings and a 2.51 ERA.
