It was a scoreless battle for the
Iirst two frames with the Weslev
men grabbing one hit to none for
the Y'ers. An inkling of what was
to come appeared in the third in

their first lead 1-0 on three hits
and then saw the YM diamond
men tie the count on a couple of
bits of their own.

Hutson got two each. Marrs,
Stromer and Barrett each clouted
a pair for the YMCA.

inning rally by Vocational Agri

scoring in every inning but the
fourth. The Aggies matched Pres

inning and then were held score
less until the fifth while Presby
was amassing a 12-3 lead.
Kelley allowed 11 hits while
walking two and striking out one.
He was never in serious danger,
however, as his mates backed him
up with great catches. Leo John
son, on the mound for the losers,
was tagged for 16 base hits and
passed seven and struck out four.
All but one of the Presby regulars
garnered at least one base hit.
An oddity of the contest was
that ail but one of the Voc Ag
men were credited with an as

left out as his outfield mates
joined the infield and battery
in chalking up at least one assist.
Kalph Ebers was the batting star
for the winners as he cracked out
"three hits in four trips to the plate
and batted in live runs. One of his
blows was a fifth-inning homer,
, Scott Stockton also blasted three
base hits in five trips to the plate
while Cork Biemond, Joe Liggit
and Norm Sothan each got two.
Biemond led off a big sixrun third
with a four-master.
Frazier and Hutchins were the
only Aggies able to get more than
one blow off Kelley as they got
two each.
Delta Sigma Pi gained the
third rounds of the playoffs by
downing the Llllies, 8-1. Itollle
Haas spun a four-hitter for the
Delta Pi's while his mates were
collecting eight safeties off the
slants of Clark Betcke of the
Lillies. Haas allowed one single
in each of the first, second, third
and fifth frames as he controlled
the losing batsmen throughout.
Two walks preoedlng the second
inning single by Powers led to
the only Lilly run.

the victorious hitters -with home
runs, driving in all the runs in the
first inning. Lauren Stewart was

The Ag Men's Club and Nor
ris House hooked up in a real
pitcher's duel as the Aggies came
out on top by a 5-2 score. Single
runs in the second, third and
fourth innings and a pair in the
fifth netted the winning runs for
the Ag Men. Norris collected
two of the four hits they were
allowed by Dick Jiskra in the
final frame for their two tallies.
Until that final inning, Jiskra
was sailing along in fine style
towards a shutout. A total of ten
men went down swinging before
the slants of tha Aggie hurler,
which is all but six of the outs in
a six-inning contest.
The winners were allowed nine
hits by Gordon Henke who struck
out four. Don Lees topped the bat

The real pitching performance
was accredited to Denny Saugh

Association in their second
fray with the Doan Nuts. Saugh
