The outfielder shifted to third midway of the contest, caught one on the nose and sent it past J. L. Austin in left field for a home run to tie the score at 3-3 in the fifth. Haney, who received the nod of fickle Dame Fortune during Monday's thriller over the Jaycees, did not come In for her favor yesterday. He fanned 14 and yielded but three hits but had the misfortune of experiencing three of his nine walks turned into runs, including the winning tally. Young Don Stallings showed why his mats call him "the cat" while annexing win No. 3. His fielding was sensational as he handled fou assists. Stallings fanned only six but did nut issue a base on balls. Both Score Early Both teams scored in the first inning. Bobby Jacques strolled to open the game, raced to third on Stalling's single to center and came in on jimmy Bruce's fielder's choice. With one out Haney singled and was safe at second when Don Tinker dropped Stalling's throw of Jesse Taylor's bunt. Haney was out on an a ttemnetd double steal. Taylor moving down to the middle station. Clyde Grffiin singled him in. . The Shriners came back with two more in their half of the second. Whittle beat out a beautiful bunt lown third. He was forced by Bob Lovelace, who moved up a base on Renfro's one bagger. Stallings took Dallas' bunt and threw into left field, both runners scampering home.

Jr. The strategy paid off as Haney failed to get the ball over to the peewee, walking in Marshall. Shortstop Renfro pulled Billy out of a deep hole by snarni "Red" Jacques' eizzler. Bruce Scores After Palsgrave's homer put them back on even terms again, the Kiwanis put over the tie breaker in their last turn at bat. Stallings and Tinker went out in order but Bruce walked. He moved up on a passed ball and broke for third on another muff by Griffin.
