'lhiw11111L"l111~ delivmJ by '1t-A ANSETI PUBLISHED BYAPEXCLUBOFTENNANTCREEK .~- ~ as a service to the community Apex meets every 2nd Monday ~z--= 6 30 pm at the Boomerang -f SPORT Spectators at Sundays baseball games saw two games of a standard generally below that expected. In the first game, erratic pitching by Kerrin brothers saw 21 walks conceeded including 5 batters hit by pitchers. Both teams scored 3 runners in the first innings which saw a full line up batting. Costly errors by Tigers let Pirates score again in the second and third innings before Tigers answered in the third to make the score 6-4. Six safe hits by Pirates in the fifth brought in 9 runs to give them an easy victory. Pirates 15 Runs 7 Hits 1 Error Tigers 4 Runs 3 Hits 5 Errors Main Safe Hits - R.Williams & P. Vander Helder 2 each Battery - D. Kerrin 9 K2 3 Hits 8 Walks K. Kerrin 3 K 2 7 Hits 13 Walks In the second game, Braves got away to what proved a winning le~d in the first innings when 3 runners scored, mainly on fielding errors. The game tightened and both teams scored 1 run in the third for a final score of 4-1 to Braves. Both teams had six scattered hits and with Landry pitching well, it was only the early fielding lapse which counted heavily against Dodgers. Braves are to be commended on an errorless game in the field. Braves 4 Runs 6 Hits 0 Error Dodgers 1 Run 6 Hits 3 Errors Main Safe Hits - Braves K. Williams 2 - Dodgers T.Bethel 2 Battery - K.Williams 2K2 4 Hits 3 Walks J.Laitenen 4K 2 2 Hits 1 Walk R.Landry 6K 2 6 Hits 0 Walks At the completion of the first round of the competition, the point score is: Pirates 6 Dodgers 1 Braves 4 Tigers 1 TRY CONWAY'S FIRST ...
