Right fielder Carl Furillo ripped 3 homeruns and had 5 RBI at Ebbets Field as

the streaking Peoria Chiefs staged a comeback win over the So Cal Knights by

the count of 15 to 12.

 

Peoria bats came alive with a big top of the 9th inning showing no mercy on So

Cal as they plated 10 runs on 10 hits.  The big moment was provided by

Furillo who quieted the home crowd when he lofted a three-run bomb.  Peoria

lit up the scoreboard in the 9th inning which saw them plate 10 runs on 10

hits.  So Cal scored in 6 different innings, but their shaky pitching kept

them from victory. 

 

Tom Poholsky(14-4) got credit for the victory, pitching 1 inning and allowing

no runs. Ellis Kinder(2-5) was the loser in relief.  He surrendered 7 runs in

1 inning and saw his ERA increase from 3.47 to 5.06. 

 

Scott Campbell was understandably not very talkative after his team's tough

loss.  He quickly showered and changed and when asked about the game had a

terse, yet polite response, 'Hey fellows, that game was a heart-breaker to

lose.  Our guys gave it their all and played well - fate just wasn't smilin'

on us this afternoon'

the Alexandria Rock Hounds in 12 innings by the score of 2 to 1 at Yankee

Stadium.

a bases-empty home run (his 1st of the season) making Peoria the victors to

the delight of the home town faithful.  Peoria finished with 7 hits in the

victory. 

 

Tom Poholsky(11-4) allowed no runs in 3 innings, and picked up the victory.

History was made in Fremont as Murray Dickson(8-7) tossed a no-hitter and the

Fremont Fear defeated the lifeless Alexandria Rock Hounds by the score of 16

to 0.

 

The partisan crowd cheered every Alexandria out from the 7th inning on.  He

walked 3 Alexandria batters.  The tension started to build around the 6th

inning.  By the 9th inning the crowd was electrified.  Fremont lit up the

scoreboard in the 3rd inning when they had 7 runs on 6 hits and the 4th

inning when they had 4 runs on 4 hits.  Fremont rapped out 18 hits for the

afternoon. 

 

Mike Garcia(8-14) was the loser.  He was touched for 11 hits and 2 walks in 3

innings.  'Dickson was simply incredible' losing pitcher Garcia said.  'I

hate to admit this but I'd pay to watch a man pitch like that'

First baseman Ted Kluszewski rocketed 4 homeruns and had 6 RBI at Yankee

Stadium as the potent Peoria Chiefs won in their last at-bat beating the So

Cal Knights by the count of 7 to 6.

 

Peoria won the game with a run in the bottom of the 9th inning.  After an out

was recorded, Kluszewski blasted a solo shot (his 41st of the season)

resulting in an exciting win for Peoria and a raucous post-game celebration

by the home town fans.  Peoria and So Cal each finished the night with 9

hits. 

 

The win was credited to Jack Meyer(6-4) who went 1 and 1/3 innings allowing 2

runs. Ellis Kinder(1-3) was given the loss in relief.  He gave up 1 run and 1

hit in 1/3 of an inning. 

 

'I was in my hotel room the other night, working on my swing and made some

adjustments,' Kluszewski said. 'I'm always working on it. If they are getting

you out certain ways, you've got to make changes.'

Left fielder Gus Zernial smashed 3 homeruns and had 4 RBI at Fenway Park where

the North Bend Tadjers beat the Fremont Fear by the score of 11 to

7.

 

Zernial had a big day at the plate.  He smashed a bases-empty 'big-fly' in the

5th inning, lofted a solo-blast 'downtown' in the 7th inning and hit a

bases-empty home run (his 21st of the season) in the 8th inning.  North Bend

had 13 hits for the afternoon. 

 

Carl Erskine(4-5) was the winner allowing 4 runs in 6 innings. The loss was

charged to Sam Jones(2-14).  He served up 3 gopher balls in 6 innings.

 

'Actually, I didn't feel that comfortable at the plate today' Zernial said

after the game.  'Despite that, I'm happy with the results!

Catcher Roy Campanella left the yard and had 4 RBI as the So Cal Knights beat

the Bayside Brewers in 13 innings by a score of 8 to 7.

 

The score was knotted at 7 after nine innings.  So Cal won it in the 13th

inning.  Del Ennis became the sole author of the rally when he cracked a

bases-empty home run (his 5th of the season) giving So Cal the win and

sending the home town fans into a frenzy.  Despite losing, Bayside out-hit So

Cal 15 to 10. 

 

Don Gross(1-1) got credit for the victory, pitching 2 innings and allowing no

runs. Curt Simmons(1-2) took the loss in relief. 

 

Al Kaline cracked 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI in a losing cause for Bayside.

Frank Sullivan took a no-hitter into the 8th inning at Memorial Stadium as the

Des Moines Dusters beat the Carolina Grays in 10 innings 1 to 0.

 

Neither team scored in the first nine innings.  Des Moines won the game in the

10th inning.  After an out was recorded, Wayne Terwilliger reached on an

error.  Terwilliger stole second with some aggressive base running.  Sullivan

then delivered a single resulting in an exciting win for Des Moines and a

raucous post-game celebration by the home town fans.  Des Moines had only 6

hits for the afternoon. 

 

Sullivan(7-5) went the distance for the shutout. The right-handed Sullivan

lost his no-hit bid when Harry Simpson singled with two outs in the 8th

inning.  Bob Chakales(3-2) was the losing pitcher in relief.  He was pinned

with the loss despite not allowing an earned run in his 1 and 1/3 innings of

work. 

 

'Sullivan just dominated us' losing pitcher Chakales said. 'Hopefully we can

get to him the next time around'

Ernie Banks slammed a homerun and scored 3 times as the Alexandria Rock Hounds

staged a dramatic comeback over the North Bend Tadjers by a score of 11 to 8

at Busch Stadium.

 

Alexandria had the winning rally in the 9th inning scoring 5 runners on 3

hits.  The highlight belonged to Dale Long who deflated the crowd as he

tripled with all three runners coming home.  North Bend was not lacking for

run support as they scored in 5 separate innings, yet victory eluded them as

they seemed to forget that pitching is also needed to win ballgames. 

 

Don Mossi(3-3) picked up the victory, allowing no runs in 2 innings. Ray

Narleski(3-5) suffered the loss in relief.  Derek Lipson was not very

talkative after his team's tough loss.  'I'm not in the mood for questions,

but I'm sure Dennis VanLangen will be glad to talk about the game as long as

you have questions to ask.'

Left fielder Richie Ashburn had 2 base hits at Wrigley Field as the Peoria

Chiefs beat the Wilmington Hornets in 12 innings 3 to 2.

 

The score was knotted at 2 after nine innings.  Peoria won the game in the

hit, and an error was also committed.  Ashburn stepped up to the plate and he

worked the squeeze play to perfection scoring the run.  Peoria had a total of

13 hits for the game. 

 

Schmidt(3-0) got the win allowing no runs in 2 and 1/3 innings. The losing

pitcher was Nellie King(2-1) in relief.  He allowed 2 hits and no walks in 3

innings.

Chet Nichols(2-1) was on top of his game in North Bend as he tossed a beauty

of a no-hitter against the North Bend Tadjers.  The Fremont Fear won by a

score of 3 to 0.

 

Nichols was obviously at the top of his game as he set the North Bend batters

down like so many dominoes.  He walked 4 North Bend batters.  The tension

started to build around the 6th inning.  By the 9th inning the crowd was

electrified.  The North Bend batters went down meekly in the bottom of the

9th. 

 

Ned Garver(1-5) was given the loss.  'You probably have a better chance of

winning the lottery than this happening,' said Nichols, 'I don't expect it to

sink in for awhile,' he said. 'I'm numb right now, I'm overwhelmed.'

WILD PITCHES- J.Nuxhall

 

Tom Poholsky carried a no-hitter into the 7th inning as the Peoria Chiefs beat

the Bayside Brewers by a score of 8 to 0.

 

Poholsky(1-0) pitched one of his finer games as he simply was too much for the

Bayside batters.  He was stingy on the mound, allowing just 1 hit and 1 walk

in 9 innings.  The right-handed Poholsky had his no-hit bid broken up by Al

Kaline who singled with one out in the 7th inning.  Peoria finished with 8

hits in the victory. 

 

Joe Nuxhall(0-1) suffered the loss.  'He came out with good stuff,' Michael

Tricarico said about Poholsky. 'He threw the ball good from the first pitch

on.'
