• Coon fcapfdsT ^oa'srs; Breda Wins- Carroll Decisions Churdan, 3-2, in 13 The Carroll Merchants won a 13-lnning marathon struggle with Churdan, 3-2, here Wednesday night but still couldn't gain ground in the Central State League flag chase. Coon Rapids slaughtered Audubon, 18-6, to retain a two-game bulge over the second place Merchants. Ronnie Mau hit a grand slam homer to cap a nine-run explosion by Coon Rapids in the fourth Inning. That turned out to be more than enough of a' cushion for winning pitcher Elmer Prescott and for Bob Behrens who twirled the last two frames. Charlie Schwaab took the loss for Audubon. Two Away Carroll finally pushed across the winning marker in the bottom of the 13th inning with two away to hand Churdan's Gayle Swansen a heart-breaking loss. The youthful Churdan hurler went all the way on a six-hitter before he finally succumbed. Lead-off man Bob Simpson walked to start the bottom of the 13th. Cletus Heinrich missed a sacrifice bunt attempt and then crossed up the defense by driving a single into left field. With runners at first and second, Ray Blankenship flied to left field. Bill Burgess was hit by a pitch and that loaded the sacks. Sacrifice Fly Hustling Sammy Long, who couldn't buy a base hit, strode to the plate and settled for an RBI on a sacrifice fly. Long hit a fry ball to left and Simpson scurried across the plate after the catch with the winning-tally. Long further distinguished himself in the field. In the 12th inning he made a sensational running catch of a fence-bound liner that .would have driven in a run and put Churdan in the lead. "I knew 1 had to get it," Long modestly explained. Double Play He was racing toward left field Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Thursday, Aug. 1, 19S7 at top speed and stretched out his glove to catch a knee-high ball. Then he capped that effort with a pivoting throw to second base to double off the base runner and complete an inning-ending twin- killing. Frank Beck, who came on in relief of starter Don Burgess at the start of the 10th, was the recipient SAFE TIRES WILL SAVE LIVES!

Re had walked Duane Hartsier to start the 12th. The runner was sacrificed to second by Swansen. Then Ed Sabus, who had tripled off Burgess in the first, sent the screaming liner to leftcenter field. Early Churdan Lead Churdan took an early lead In the first .when Paul Trost drove Sabus home with a slow-hopper to second base. Carroll bounced back with two runs in the third to take a slim lead. Don Burgess drew a pass and advanced to second base on Simpson's single to left. Heinrich was safe on a fielder's choice as Burgess moved to third.

The visitors couldn't buy a base hit off relief pitcher Jim Wingrove the rest of the way, but the damage had been done. Floyd Leiting scattered seven Manning hits over a route-going performance. The victory enabled the Eagles to move within a game and one-half of fifth-place Manning. Schenkelberg Unloads Bases Breda's big blow came off the bat of Don Schenkelberg on a three-two pitch with the bases loaded and two away in the fourth. Don Schaefer had walked and had stolen second. Leiting, fanned. Jim Bengfort grounded out but Kenneth King walked. Ken Goecke got an infield hit to load the sacks. Schenkelberg unloaded the sacks when he blasted a Hargens pitch to the right-center field retaining fence. That blow drove the sixth Breda run across the plate and marked the departure of Hargens. Wingrove retired Don Koster on a grounder to end the rally. After the fourth Inning, Breda got only one runner on base and that was Howard Heisterkamp. In the fifth, Heisterkamp lived on an error. After the miscue allowed the runner to reach first, Wingrove retired 15 batters in order. Breda scored in the first inning when Jim Bengfort was hit by a pitch and King was safe on'| an error. Goecke flied out and Schenkelberg singled Bengfort home. King went to third on the play and scored when Koster was safe on an error. In the third, Goecke singled and scored the tie run while the twin- killing was being made. Swansen beat out an infield hit and Sabus lined to first to end the rally, In the eighth inning, Trost singled with one away and stole sec- ind. But he was stranded as Jim Reagan struck out and Bob Vogel grounded out. Burgesa Whiffed 14 . Don Burgesa wound up his nine- inning stint by retiring'the side in order in the ninth. He finished that frame with a flourish by striking out Hartsier for his 14th strike-out victim in nine innings. The Carroll Manager pulled himself in favor of a pinch-runner, Rollie Niehaus, after drawing a walk to lead off in the bottom of the ninth frame. Niehaus was sacrificed to second by Simpson. Heinrich lined to short. Blankenship singled to short and Niehaus stopped at third. Bill Burgess walked but Long hit into a fielder's choice for the third out.

The 30-year-old ex-Marine from Chittenengo, N.Y., is a swashbuckling fighter with a real zest for his trade. He dislikes Robinson and never has disguised his feelings. Sugar Ray added coals to the fire Wednesday when he kept Carmen waiting more tfian an hour for the official signing while he studied the return bout clause in the contract. When Robinson finally affixed his signature, Basilio heaved a sigh and said, "At last." "This is what I've been waiting for," he said. "Ip my book, he's greedy, arrogant, and 1 dejpise him. I can't wait to get in the ring with him." Then he said, "I'll take him off his high horse in the ring." a) Ran for D. Burges» in 9th.
