Arcadia hurler Frank McConnell bit Carver in the shoulder with the bases loaded, forcing in Greg Snowden with the deciding run and advancing Chandler into, tonight's winner's bracket game at 6 p.m. Arcadia came back in the loser's bracket contest, eliminating Tucson Gas, 5-4. It seemed inevitable that Chandler should score, as in the two previous innings Chandler had also loaded the bases but couldn't bring a run across. The first threat in the eighth was eliminated when MeConnell struck out Larry Bonds. And again in the ninth Chandler filled the bases with none out, but Joe Nix was cut down at the plate and Me- Connell fanned Chris Harshey and Reed Pew. Arcadia also blew an opportunity to score in the top of the tenth when they loaded the bases. But Chandler hurler Harshey whiffed Rob Millsop and got Randy Catalan- otic to ground out.
