Bellinger was busy mowing the KC hitters down during that same six inning stretch. Lone Rock took advantage of a couple of walks, a triple and a misjudged fly to tally four runs in the seventh and take a 7-0 !*ad. The KCs came up with three in the home half of the same innings, and two in the last of the eighth, but Lone Rotk ran its total to eight by getting to Dave Walker for an insurance tally during the last two innings. Bellinger, Miller and Mitchell worked on the hill for the winners, Bollinger getting the win, while Winkel, Dole and Walker hurled for the KCs, Winkel taking the defeat. Bob Diekmann led the hitters in the game with three blows in four trips. The locals out-hit the winners, 10-8.
