High School Nine Downs Waukon, 8 to 1 Postville's high school Pirates won their eighth victory in ten games by downing Wnukon at the county seat city Tuesday, by a score of 8 to 1. The Postville scovebook showed that no Waukon batter was credited with a hit, that not a ball was hit beyond the Postville infield, and that Pitcher Merle Meyer had set down fifteen Indians as strikeout victims. The lone Waukon score came by virtue of a walk, a stolen base, an infield out and an error. The Pirates were hot nt the plate with 11 hits. In the fourth inning the team produced six runs as the result of six hits, two walks and an error. Jim Malonc managed two singles and a double in five trips to the plate. Lose In Sectional Postville's high school baseball team fell to Monona 7 to 0 in the finals of the sectional tourney at Monona on Saturday. Defeating Waukon 5 to 2 in a game at 2:15 which had been postponed since Monday because of rain, and following it at 3:45 with the final against Monona was too much for the Pirates. Merle Meyer was on the mound for the Pirates in the Waukon game and mowed down eleven of the listless Indians by the strikeout method in six innings. Waukon did not appear to even resemble the same team that had administered the Pirates their lone defeat of the season. During those six innings only nineteen men faced Meyer. The Wnukon team did come to life for a brief spell in the final frame and pounced on Rima for two hits and their two runs. The Postville team wasted no •time in getting started and went out after two runs in the first inning which they accomplished on singles by Rima. Mork and Merle Meyer. They came back for two 'more in the second on two walks, a stolen base and a single by Waters. Their final score came on a walk and a triple by Douglass in the third inning, Mork did the best at the plate with two singles in four apeparances. Facing Monona, fall state champions, in the final game seemed to cause no fear for the Pirates. In fact, for the first six innings, the Monona team looked far from championship calibre; for going into the final frame the Monona lads had chalked up but two hits and one run. Tennis Mork was on the mound for the Pirates and was making short work of the opposing batters. During the first six innings only twenty-one batters faced Mork. Monona managed to put together two singles and a stolen base for a run in the fourth. Then in the seventh everything went wrong for the Pirates." Two Monona batters walked, one was hit with a pitched ball, two errors were committed, and Monona batters had two singles. Six runs were across the plate and none were out, and Merle Meyer came in to put out the fire by retiring three batters in order, Ken Keustor, Monona pitcher, was easily the best pitcher the Pirates had faced this season, and lie struck out fourteen while allow- ng two hits. George Bachelder, who seemed to have Keuster's number, received credit for both hits, singles.
