Triplett Nine Wins Two In County
Tourney: To Play Again Wednesday
Next start of the locals as they
attempt to stay in the running will
be a game with a strong lima
Moose outfit at 9 p. m. this Wed
nesday.
In their first two starts, the Trip
lett crew bested Henry’s Cigar Store
Saturday night by a score of 7 to
6 in extra innings, and walloped
Lima Standard Oil |y a score of
15 to 4, on Monday-
Lima Moose, playing good ball all
through the tourney, won Monday
night by a score of 3 to 0, and will
be a difficult opponent for the Trip
lett crew.
A Triplett win Wednesday will ad
vance the team to the semi-finals
in which they will play either Lima
Ordnance or Ed’s Cigar store.
In their first tourney start the
Triplett team played loosely before
coming up with the 7 to 6 win in
first inning against Henry’s Cigar
store, it looked as if Triplett would
walk away with an easy decision,
but the Lima team rallied for two
runs in the third, three in the sixth
and one in the seventh to tie the
score, after Triplett got another
tally in the fifth.
Beach and Spaeth shared the
hurling duties, with Spaeth getting
credit for the victory.
In Tuesday night’s assignment,
the Standard Oil team managed to
twice tie the score, once at three-all
and again at 4-4, but from that
point Triplett went on to score a
one-sided victory.
Watch These Bargains!
Spaeth, on the mound all the way,
allowed only eight hits for the vic
tors. Triplett had 18 safeties in
cluding four by Stonehill and three
by Ken Moser.
