THE BLUFFTON NEWS, BLUFFTON, OHIO In their first start in Lima Major league play, Triplett's undefeated softball team last Thursday night handed Lima Loco, last year’s Lima champs, a 4 to 0 drubbing, to estab lish the locals as one of the favor ites in this season’s league race. With Gene Beach hurling two hit ball, and throttling Loco’s offensive bids all the way the Lima crew was never in a position to threaten at any time. Triplett meanwhile tallied two runs in the third inning, followed by two more in the fifth to score their sixth consecutive win of the year. In two other Lima league games, the Triplett team was rained out, after playing one inning in each contest.
