NAUGATL'CK SEWS (Conn.) Friday, May7.1976-Page II Greyhounds Notch Important 5-1 NVL Victory Over Crusaders By STEVE GESSECK Scholastic Sporlswriter Jim Foley and Tom Burns combined to pilch a four hitler, andIhe Holy Cross defense gave Naugatuckfive unearned runs as UK Greyhounds defeated the Crusaders 51 yesterday at Brecji Field. The win sols up tomorrow's big contest at Municipal Stadium, presently leading the Hounds by one game in the NVL race, Foley, in raising his season record to 3-1, went six innings, allowing two singles, walking a pair, while striking out four. Burns was tagged for an 'warned run in the ninth but pitched three innings, allowing two hits, fanning one batter and walking rone. "Our pitching hasn't been as good thus far this season as 1 was ho pi ng it would be until this week. We got a shutout from four pitchers on only three hits Tuesday and our goal today was another shutout," Naugy coach JocBojko commented after the game. 'Thisdcfinitely puts the pressure on Wilby. We're only one game behind them and we will be going into Saturday's game flying high." The Greyhounds, now 8-3 overall and 7-2 in the league, broke on top with two runs in the (ourlh inning off of losing pitcher Pete Bouron. Walt Koproski led off with a walk, and one out later Bob Stauffer reached on the first of two errors in the inning by third baseman Vin Sanloro. Jim Thurslon forced Stauffer at second for the second out, but another error by Santoro, this one on a grounder by Gary Palmer, allowed the first run to score, Fran Cipriano brought in Thurslon from second on a ground rule double which rolled over the bank in right field. The Garnet got some padding in the sixth by scoring three more limes off of Bouron. Stautfer singled and was sacrificed to second by Thurston. Palmer walked and Cipriano followed with a single to load the bases. Foley bounced a ball to shortstop Marty Gunnoud who's throw lo the plate was high allowing Stauffer loscoreand still leaving the bases loaded. Consecutive walks to Burns and Frank Montoni, the second one issued by Ilusly Bernal, forced in the final two Naugatuck tallies Kolcy breezed through his innings, retiring the first eight baiters he faced before walking Rich Mini. Tom Bouron got the first hit off of Foley, leading off the fourth inning, but Foley got himself out of any possible trouble by picking a sacrifice bunt attempt out of the air on a diving atlempt and doubling Bouron off of first. In Ihe sixth, with two down, Cross had two men on with two away but Foley got Pete Bouron to bounce back to Ihe box to get out of the inning. The Crusaders only other scoring Ihreal, besides in the ninth inning, came in the seventh when Ken Novi tripled with one away. Burns got out of the inning, however, on a grounder to short and on a line defensive play by Naugy third baseman Gary Palmer. Palmer ranged far into Ihe hole to grab a bouncing ball off the bat of Gunnoud and throw to first for the final out. Three errors by Naugy substitutes in the last inning allowed the Crusaders to score their only run of the game, breaking the scoreless string at 17 innings. "Our play as a team has been coming along. We are getting better pilcliing and aren't making as many errors in Ibe lield as we were early in the season. If we continue loget good pitching the rest of the way, we will be lough," Bojko concluded. NAUGY NOTES - In working his six innings, Foley threw only 70 pitches, an excellent number.. . The senior righty was keeping the ball low and was mixing up Ns pitches perfectly. . , Foley also broke Bouron's no hil at- lempt when he drilled a single ihrough the hole inlo lefl field with one out in the third inning... In Ihe first game between (he two teams, won by Holy Cross 4-3, Pete Shambreskis went two for three, had an RBI and scored Ihe winning run for the Crusaders... Yesterday,Foley and Bums gave Shambreskis the collar, holding Km hitless in four at bats... Naugy has now avenged one of their losses and will be trying lo avenge a second one tomorrow against Wilby in Municipal Stadium ., Game lime is 1 p rn . The Wildcats won the first meeting between the two schools by the score of 8-1 last month and will probably hace Al Gregouli, who pitched a two hitter Tuesday againsl Kaynor Tech, on the mound...
