Hardman The run-famine being experienced by the Charleston Charlies these days is enormous but they got some super-dooper pitching in the first game of a double header Saturday night at Watt Powell Park and managed to struggle through with a split with the Toledo Mud Hens. They took the first game, 2-1, in 10 innings but were outclassed, 7-1, in the nightcap which finished after midnight. Johnny Lamb, making his first start in three years afte long bullpen duty, gave up fou walks in the second inning an the Hens threw in a pair c singles by George Pena and Ik Blessitt to account (or four runs Fred Cambria came in t pitch then and acquitted himsel well, giving up only four hit over 5 and % innings, welkin nobody and striking out three But three of the hits came ir the fifth and one of them was Kevin Collin's sixth homer the season after singles by John ny Knox and Rich Leon. Thes three runs put it out of reach The Charlies, who still held onto their 1'4 game lead over second place Louisville, saved a whitewashing in the sixth when Chuck Goggin doubled, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on Rich Joseph's single. But that's as far as they go as a rookie, Dave Lemanczyk with some late relief help from Bill Gilbreth, scored his firs victory. Gilbreth got his eighth save. The loss went to Lamb. The opener was something, else--a tense pitchers' battle. GOGGIN COLPAERT Caught Brett Hurlbutt, 9, of Denver "poses" with the 102-pound sailfish he caught in a fishing- contest in the Gulf of California near Guaymas, Mexico. Brett's catch won him, first, place in the junior division of the tournament, and third place overall. It took him 45 minutes to land the nine-foot-long fish.

The Charlies, missing many opportunities to get the winning run around the bases earlier ir the game, got the break they needed when Goggin slapped a 3-2 pitch off reliefer Jack Whillock to open the 10th. Dick Sharon struck out as Goggin stole one of his most important bases of the season So Whillock then intentionally Art Howe and George walked Kopacz to set double play. up a possible But it didn't work that way as Joseph's bouncer to Gamble wasn't actually hit hard enough for him to throw in time to head off the speedy Goggin at the plate.

Nelson deserved a better fate. He showed no traces of the area ailment which has plagued him since last season and had given up only three hits until Ike Blassitt and Bob Nolinaro put singles back-to-back to open the sixth. Colpaert ran a 2-2 count on Leon and then the Hen first baseman-outfielder rapped a hit to right to get Blessitt home. Colpaert finally got the side out with no further trouble. The Charlies had gotten a run in the first on Dick Sharon's single, an infield out and George Kopacz' one-baser into right. Colpaert, pitching one-hit ball for five innings, striking out six and issuing only one walk -and that intentional -- picked up his 10th victory against four defeats. He also has 14 saves to his credit. It was an incredible showing by the incredible Mr. Colpaert.

Johnny O'Neil, who scouted for the Detroit Tigers when Charleston was associated with the American League team nearly 20 years ago, has been taking in this series. He's now scouting for the Atlanta Braves. Regis Cole, Charlies' business manager, forgot to announce Friday that Russell Chambers and Ralph Hammond were awarded 15 "combs" each as prizes in the bald-haeded men's contest at the park. The "combs" happened to be towels. Bob Veale, Barry Moore, Phil Bushman, Dick Colpaert, Gary Kolb, Dick Sharon, and one or two other Charlies did their turns at archery Saturday during an exhibiton by the Kanawha Archery Assn. Everybody in the ball park ducked for cover. . . . The Charlies take to the road Monday, going to Rochester.
