College Nine Loses
To Findlay, Toledo
Ineffective pitching and loose field
ing cost the Bluffton college baseball
team two more chances for victory
last week on the local diamond and
the Beavers dropped decisions to
Findlay college and Toledo univers
Against Findlay, the Burckymen
were unable to hold an early 8 to 0
lead, and they eventually went down
to defeat, 16 to 8.
Luginbuhl, Bluffton’s starting
pitcher, developed a wild streak in
the sixth inning with his team out
in front by eight runs. As a result
Findlay scored five runs on a single,
seven walks and a wild pitch.
Six hits and two more passes in
the seventh inning gave Findlay six
more runs, and the Oilers were out
in front to stay. They counted one
more tally in the eighth and four in
the ninth to sew up the decision.
In an effort to stem the avalanche
Bluffton used seven pitchers, Lugin
buhl, Roszhart, Radulovich, Soash,
Tetlow, McLaughlin and Snyder.
It was an off day for the entire
team when Toledo university’s high
powered outfit stopped off here on
Friday. Final count in the contest,
called at the end of the seventh
inning, was 27 to 1.
Toledo has one of the finest colle
giate teams in this section and
among other victories numbers a win
over the University of Michigan.
