T. Custer Park. The Knights tallied seven runs in the first inning and didn't score again until the fourth when they added seven more. Mike Ebbing was the winning pitcher. The Connie Mack Tournament opens tonight with Abingdon meeting Cliff Anderson in the opener at 6 and Hi-Lo battUng Monmouth in the nightcap. The semifinals will be played Tuesday and finals Thursday. Galesburg Gains Split PEORIA — Galesburg's Pioneers took the first game but dropped the nightcap of a doubleheader with the Peoria Collegians here, Sunday afternoon. The Pioneers chased starter Jay Schloemer from the hill with four runs in the fifth inning of the first game and went on to win,' it r\ ' FINANCE i C O K P O H AT IO H 58 8. PralrJo — 342-0181 I 7-2 Ron Kluch', who has pitched well against Galesburg all summer, checked the Pioneers with four hits in a 5-0 Peoria triumph in the second game. Larry Blixt of Parsons College, a new addition to the Galesburg roster, batted in three runs for the Pioneers in the first contest. His big- blow was a two-run single in the fifth off of reliefer Ron Patterson. His hit gave Galesburg a 3-2 lead. Jim Johnson survived a shaky first inning in which Peoria scored both of its runs and went on to blank the Collegians for six frames. He had control problems giving up six free passes, but he had what it took in clutch situations. Three Peoria twin killings cut off any "would be" Galesburg rallies in the second contest. The Collegians turned in doubleplays in the first and second frames and added one more in the fifth inning. Kluch whiffed eight while walking three in his route-going performance. Peoria's two-run third inning was all the home team needed for the victory. Donnie. Kessinger singled, Carlo Gott walked, and John Pavlick doubled them in. Kessinger tripled in the fifth to bring home Mike Long. He scored on an infield out. The Pioneers are scheduled to play their third straight doubleheader this evening at Springfield. Two games with Peoria on Tuesday and a single game with Lincoln on Wednesday wind up the home schedule for the Pioneers.

MODERN Alignment & Broke 131 North Cherry Phone 343-1414 HOURS 9 TO 9, MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY fusion about the Peoria doubleheader, Tuesday. Galesburg was informed by the league office that there would be two games with the first contest starting at 3 p.m. Peoria, however, has not been informed that there would be a doubleheader, and they are going under the assumption that there is only one game to be played, Tuesday. At any rate, Galesburg still thinks that there is a doubleheader and game time is set at 3 p.m Gale»burg (7) Peoria (2) Held to 2 Hits CANTON — Galesburg's bid for a second consecutive American Legion state baseball title was thwarted here Saturday night in a 1-0 semi-final loss to Kankakee. There was certainly no stigma attached to the Saturday night setback which saw lefthander Chuck Schacht out - dueled by righthander Joe Wischnow- skey of Kankakee. The game was marked by razor-sharp pitching and errorless fielding on both sides and was completed in the snappy time of 1:25. Kankakee handed Northbrook its first loss, 5-0, in the finals Sunday night and forced the double elimination tourney' to go an extra day. Southpaw Henry O'Reiley hurled a 5-hitter. Final game was scheduled for 2 p.m. today. Manager Sam Andrce's charges were completely handcuffed by the Kankakee moundsman who gave up just two hits, back to back singles in the fourth inning. Wisch- nowskey fanned nine and walked none and drove in the only run of the game with a second-inning double.

Stars Play Covenant in Church Loop Covenant Church, league winners and playoff champions, will battle an all-star team picked from the rest of the Church Kit- tenball League next Monday night at Lake Storey. Game time set for the all-star contest is 7:30. Managers of the all-star team are Howard Findahl, Trinity Lutheran; Larry Erickson, United Brethren; Reggie Mustain, Coldbrook Christian and Jack Cunningham, First Methodist. The all-star roster is listed below. Infielders: Dick Carlson (Methodist), Walt Sinnott (Jaycees), Roger Hannam (Trin'.ty Lutheran), Gaylord Horn (Bethel Baptist), Dick Engman (Trinity Lutheran), Larry Erickson (United Brethren), Earl Way (Coldbrook Christian). Outfielders: Phil Corbin (Bethel Baptist), Rick Callahan (Presbyterian), Dick Flaar (Trinity Lutheran), Ted Sedgwick (United Brethren), Larry Sippel (Methodist), John VanFleet (Trinitv Lutheran), Don Peterson (Presbyterian), Jack Cunningham (Methodist), Roger Cunningham (First Lutheran). Pitchers: Regie Mustain (Coldbrook Christian), Dale Catlin (United Brethren), Bob Buncher (Presbyterian), Ted Sedgwick (United Brethren), Odell Peterson (First Lutheran). Utility: Kenneth Scr.rader (Presbyterian), Jim Gatlin (United Brethren), Ken Groves (Jaycees), Dean Sippel (Methodist) struck out seven and walked only one. He gave up singles to Bill Vandiver and Howard McKay in the second inning, prior to the two-base blow by Wischnowskey, Galesburg's only scoring opportunity came about when Randy Welch and Pat Prina opened up the fourth inning with back-to- back singles. When Welch took third on a delayed steal it gave the locals an excellent scoring chance with runners at first and third and nobody out. At this point, however, Wisch- nowskey bore down and struck out Larry Pickrel and Frank Dexter and forced Carl Swanson to pop out to the infield. And that was the extent of the offense for Galesburg. The local nine, which had pounded out 15 hits in the afternoon, showed only two men left on bases against Kankakee. It was the second route-going stint in two days for Schacht who was beaten 4-0 by Northbrook in first round play Thursday afternoon. All four runs were unearned in that game.

Custer Park, with a 5-3 triumph over home team Bettendorf, Sunday afternoon. Saturday night the Warriors saw an eight-inning rally fall one run short in a contest which was abbreviated to eight innings because of the 10:45 curfew at H. T. Custer Park. Rusty Potter, who has been suffering with a back ailment, went the distance for the locals against Midlothian. He was victimized by fielding miscues in key situations by his teammates. Potter drove in three runs himself with a bases loaded double. ab r h 2 0 0 3 0 1 3 0 1 3 0 0 3 0 0 2 0 O 2 11 2 0 1 2 0 1 ip Brown (L) 6 Kluch (W) 7 h r er bbso 7 4 4 3 S 4 0 0 3 8 U—Crotz, Gailliaert, Walraven.

Caps Take 2 From Locals Galesburg's Pioneers, the hottest team in the Central Illinois Collegiate League for the past two weeks, were cooled off Saturday by the Springfield Caps, who took a pair from the locals, 4-1, 6-1.

In the first contest, Porky Brooks led off the bottom of the, first with a home run, which hit the leftfield fence and bounced over. That was all the hitting that Galesburg did against Springfield righthander Bill Evans. Springfield had gone out on top in the top of the first when Al Peludat, who had walked and stolen second base, was doubled home by Gerry Boehmer. Mike Reis, Pioneer righthander, held the Caps in check until the seventh frame. Bill Cornman started it off with a walk and Dick Porzel and Evans followed with infield singles to load the bases. Peludat slammed a double to bring home pinchrunner John Seibel and Porzel. After Jim Dix went out to Dennis Huffman unassisted, Boehmer laid down a sacrifice bunt to bring in Evans. Galesburg took the lead In the first inning of the second contest. With one out, Dennis Doyle doubled, stole third, and came home on Caps' pitcher Dick Nelson's balk. Larry Johnson walked and Dennis Huffman reached base on an error. Moments later Johnson was picked off of second base for the second out of the inning. Here's where the confusion started. Justin Dedeaux then slashed a drive to left center. Huffman moved to third and Dedeaux wound up on second. Nelson went into his windup but balked. Base umpire Rol Derry waved Huffman home. Nelson wound up again and this time he. threw it to first base. The umpire ruled that Dedeaux was out because he hadn't touched first base. And since Dedeaux, who had not officially reached first base, made the third out, the umpires ('/sallowed the run which Huffman scored on Nelson's balk. A two-i'un shot by Tom Dix put Springfield ahead to stay in the Blatz almost deadlocked the contest in the eighth. Lee Bev ard walked to start off the inning, and he came around to score on Mike Owens' double After Emil Hansen fanned, Gene Mendez singled to bring home Owens. Jeff Sandburg walked, moving the tying run to second base. However, Ted Bothsworth struck out Jack McBride and Jim Tachirone to end the contest. Heavy hitting by Otis Cowan and Mike Davis, new additions to the Blatz squad, helped the Warriors to a 5-3 triumph over Bettendorf, Sunday. Cowan connected for two hits, while Davis had a trio of safeties. Both of them rapped two- baggers, with Davis driving in the winning run in the tenth frame. Jim Connors, another new Warrior, blasted two base hits in a winning effort.
