strong Phi Delta Theta from this
year's contention by a 6-0 tally
behind the no-hit hurling of Stu

Nelson was in complete control
in Thursday's clash. He faced a
total of 23 men with five Phi
Delts getting as far as first base,
four on walks. He sent 10 batters
down swinging and contributed to
his own cause by driving in two
runs with a single in the second!
Only once did the Phi Delts
threaten. With one gone in the
last of the sixth Joe Carter walked
and after Jim Oliver popped up,
Korisko drew another base on
balls. An error on Coco's third
sacker loaded the bases but Nel

It was the inspiration that Ran

more hits the rest of the way.
Three straight Phi Psi infield er
