July 8, 1933 - On this day in history in the NCSHOF, there were actually two members of the NCSHOF that got the pitching decisions in the game between the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers.   Vic Sorrell of the Tigers came on the seventh and pitched three strong innings to get the save, his first of the year, as Detroit beat the Yankees 5-2. Sorrell, who pitched in high school for Cary and for Clayton and later was the N.C. State baseball coach, allowed just two hits in three innings and also drove in a run.  Lenoir native Johnny Allen was charged with the loss.
