To remain in the undefeated bracket, the Triplett crew had to go thru nine scoreless innings before Timer Spaeth, Bluffton hurler, final ly won his own contest with a 10th inning single scoring Russell from second after two men were out. Spaeth and Plummer tangled in an airtight pitchers’ battle in the tilt, with the former giving up only three hits in 10 innings, and the latter allowing only four. Until the mementous loth, Roger Berky had gotten two of the Triplett hits, in the first and seventh frames, and Bert Swank had the other. Then in the 10th, Russell was safe on first on an error, and with two men out Pinch Hitter Don Moser was walked to advance Russell to second. Spaeth then slashed a sharp single into center field to score Russell with the winning run.
