FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
June 14, 1947: The Reds swipe pitcher Ken Raffensberger and C Hugh Poland from the Phillies for C Al Lakeman. Lakeman won't hit his weight (195 pounds) in two seasons in Philadelphia while Raffensberger will win 89 games in a Reds uniform.

August 28, 1948: The Phils snap their 10-game losing streak with a pair of victories over the Pirates, 92 and 117. Del Ennis and Andy Seminick homer in the opener to back Schoolboy Rowe. Ennis hits pair in game two, Seminick adds another, as do Eddie Miller, Granny Hamner --his first of the year -- and Al Lakeman. But the Phils lose star Richie Ashburn, who breaks a finger on his left hand.

May 15, 1949: Boston's Vern Bickford stops the Dodgers, 40, allowing just four singles. One is by Gil Hodges, extending his hitting streak to 17 games. Jim Russell switch hits a homer and double to pin the loss on Morrie Martin. The Braves start Al Lakeman at 1B in place of Earl Torgeson, who separated his shoulder yesterday when he attempted to block Jackie Robinson on a double play. Torgeson will be operated on tomorrow and will be sidelined several months.
