The Miners clinched the title Friday night with a 4-0 shutout over the Owls at Topeka. The victory gave Frank Lucas, Joplin hurler, his 24th win of the season against three losses. Lucas held the Owls to five hits in the game as his teammates helped hold the host team scoreless. Topeka's hurler, Sam Frazier, also hurled five hit ball, but the errors by the Owls cost him the game. Joplin scored one run in the sixth on two singles, an error and an outfield fly. The Miners then added another run in the seventh and two in the eighth. Hutchinson took possession of second place with another shutout victory, a 6-0 triumph, over Salina. Joe Stelmack allowed only four ihits to notch his 14th victory ROM Loop Playoff against eight losses The Elks put together five runs in the third inning on five hits and Miami Needs Only One Win to Cinch THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, Sunday Morning, September 7,1952.
