I I St. John's Wins District; Shooting For State Title Bancroft Edged From Mason City Legion Tourney 6—Algona (la.) Upper Des Moinei Tuesday, July 26, 1960 A three-run first inning rally proved to be the final edge as St. John's of Bancroft downed North Central of Manly and took the district title at Garrigan Field here Friday night. The win advanced the Johnnies into stato tournament action. Afier the Johnnies got three unearned runs in the top of the first, pitchers DeWayne Hatten and Dick Donahue, with the aid of some fine fielding, kept the North Central bats pretty silent, except for a two run outburst in th<* home half of the sixth. With two out in the first, Alan Menke walked. He went to second as Hatten reached first on an error and both scored as Ken Hutchinson delivered a bad- bounce triple to right field. After Gene Hutchinson walked, Ken Hutchinson scored the third run on a double steal. The Johnnies counted their fourth run in the fifth. Donahue got an infield hit and was sacrificed to second by Don Smith. Menke walked, but was forced at second by Hatlen, moving Donahue-to third. He then scored as Ken Hutchinson batted in his third run of the night with a single to right. A single by Rog Hutchinson and a two-base error, which moved him to third, set up the final St. John's run. Donahue knocked it in with a smash to left. A base hit by Gary Gesme, a hit batsman, two errors, and a single by Phillip Rusely gave North Centj-al two runs with none out in the sixth. Donahue came in to relieve Hatten and put out the fire in one-two-three order. Hatten took the win, wnile Ralph Bistline took the loss. The Johnnies got six hits, including three by Donahue and two by Ken Hutchinson, and the North Central crew got five. BOTH TEAMS EASE INTO FINAL ROUND North Central advanced to the finals with an easy, 12-4 verdict over Graettinger and St. John's, taking advantage of eight errors, swept past Corwith-Wesley, 7-1, into the finals July 20. The Manly team built up a 9-0 lead in the first five innings and had no trouble ousting Graettinger. Bistline, who led all hitters in the game with a 4 for 4 night, was the winning hurler, while Baedke took the loss. The winners notched 12 hits to four for the losers. A six-run rally in the fifth inning, which saw St. John's garner all three of its hits, gave Coach Vince Meyer's team its win over Corwith- vVesley. The hits, all singles, were by Gene and Rog Hutchinson and Larry Rahe. They were combined with three errors, two walks and a pair of fielder's choices to send home the runs. St. John's scored its other run in the first , without the benefit o'f a hit as Corwith-Wesley committed four errors in the frame. Corwith-Wesley's run came in the sixth on a walk and hits by Sam Nail and Bob Anderson. Donahue took the win, Ron Stroup the loss. , Box score - Finals: St. John's (5) AB R H Donahue 413 Smith __ 300 Menke '2 10 Hatten 4 1 u K. Hutchinson 312 G. Hutchinson .2 0 0 R.
