D I .\ E — <Sp>— All wind- Kniices were blown oat here Tuesday afternoon Init Baylmvn'.s lyiirns Vi'^aH weathered two varieties of ••Jorms to subdue surprising Aldine on a neat four- hit UT. ;)-,". Gander hitter? backed Vegas' clutch-pitching -with a nine-hit attack to nail down Baytowr.'js first District 12AA victory in two starts £ni!<f winds whipping up to 40 miles per hour. But :.hc victory was not easy as Vegas had a seemingh* safe 4-0 Jefld melt to 4-3 in the bottom of the sixth inning. Aldine picked up (wo of its three runs on two hits in the fourth inninjr. A double off the left-field wall by Third-Baseman Bryan Milsap and a long- horne- , run over the rig-ht-fie)d barrier by First-baseman A. V. Middte- sledt. turned the key. Lee opened the first inning as *f to knock lose!', Walter Hinc-s, out of t~e box. They might have but for the terrific wind blowing straight into home-plate. With two runs in, end two "on base, Gander Left-fielder Charles Mills slammed a high-drive that ran Aldine's James Knight up against the left-field boards for the catch. Had the wind been at 50 per cent its velocity,- Mills' blow- possibly "would have been a three-run homer for a 5-0 lead. Lee's two first-inning tallies carne when Bobby Sanders walked, was balked to second, scored on Artie Ovied'o's double to center and Catcher Ted Dodd singled in Oviedo. Baytown piled across two more runs ir. top of the second for a 4-0 lead. Vegas walked, took second as Sanders was plunked by Hines, and scored ahead of San- cfers on Dodc's two-run single to left. After Aldine whacked Vceas for two runs in the fourth. Baytown loaded the base* with none away in top of the fifth. But Catcher Inland Fikes picked Docid off third and Mills off first-bast- as he almost Mnsrle- handedly snuffed out the rally. Third-baseman George Miles fanned to end the inning with Barry Lancaster stranded or. second. Aldir.e sliced the once 4-0 Baytown lead to 4-3 in the sixth. Milsap singled to cerr.er. wen; to t second on a groundoul, to third on another groundout and scored as a play was made for Fikes stealing second. But the Ganders came back with an insurance run in (op of the seventh. Lancaster driving in Porter from third with a towering- sacrifice fly to center. Porter had singled to left-center, stolen second and gone to third on Fikes' error. Dodd led the Baytown attack, stroking- three singles in three trips and driving in three rims. Oviedo and Lancaster drove in the others. Porter had two for four.
