Don Bollweg had 4 hits and 5 RBI and Don Mossi closed the door on North Bend

at Comiskey Park as the Oswego Panthers beat the North Bend Tadjers 15 to

13.

 

Bollweg provided much of the offense.  He doubled plating two runs in the 3rd

inning, delivered a single in the 5th inning, lined a base-hit plating two

runs in the 5th inning and slapped a one-base hit in the 8th inning.  Oswego

provided plenty of action in the 3rd inning which saw them plate 6 runs on 5

hits and the 5th inning when they had 7 runs on 7 hits.  This was the kind of

game that many fans love as the lead changed hands 5 times. 

 

The win was credited to Al Aber(1-1) who went 1 and 2/3 innings allowing no

runs. Mossi recorded the save, his 6th.  Tom Brewer(0-1) was the loser in

relief.  Oswego scored big getting 7 runs off him in 2 and 1/3 innings.

Wilmington fans certainly got their money's worth at Wrigley Field.  Bob

Turley(6-2) pitched a rare no-hitter as the Butte Stompers toppled the

Wilmington Hornets 8 to 0.

 

Turley was obviously at the top of his game as he set the Wilmington batters

down like so many dominoes.  He walked 5 Wilmington batters.  What a day for

the fans.  They were on the edge of their seats from the 7th inning on.  With

every out, the electricity in the air mounted.  Turley recorded 11

strikeouts.  Butte had a total of 12 hits for the game. 

 

Billy Pierce(0-3) was the loser.  He allowed a few too many baserunners giving

up 8 hits and 5 walks in 4 and 2/3 innings.  'Turley pitched one heck of a

game!' Jim Nancarrow said.  'He didn't get away with any bad pitches because

he just didn't throw any bad pitches.  What a performance!'

History was made in Peoria as Bob Porterfield(3-1) tossed a no-hitter and the

Peoria Chiefs defeated the Carolina Grays by the score of 1 to

0.

 

Porterfield gave the home town fans an evening that they'll never forget.  He

walked 6 Carolina batters.  The tension started to build around the 6th

inning.  By the 9th inning the crowd was electrified.  Peoria had 8 hits for

the night. 

 

John Antonelli(1-3) was the losing pitcher.  It was a tough loss for him as he

did not allow an earned run in his 7 innings of work. 

 

It took a while to pry Porterfield way from his teammates as they all wanted

to show their appreciation and joy.  Finally, however, Michael Tricarico got

to offer his own congratulations with a big bear hug and the comment, 'That

was one of the best pitched games I have seen in all my years in baseball -

Porterfield was masterful out there tonight!'
