The evilence stood out on the slab at Loop Field Tuesday eve- ning for all LO witness as Jerry B{allory, a Junior Legion diamond huninary himself only three years removed, fed a goose-egg to to- day's Junior Legionnaires with his lefthanded pitching puzzlers. Jerry rammed the slab for the McCleary Town Team. which re- turned home with a 6-0 success, after nine innings of well-played baseball. Mallory got a stiff argument from his righthanded opponent, Brian Snyder, a youngster with two more years of Junior Legion play in front of him--an argument that eotfld have been muen closer. WITH PERFECT support, men- tel as well as physical. Snider could have been a 1-9 loser, if that's any consolation. A mental miscue helped McCleary score two of its three first-frame runs, and from there on all the rest were aided by physical lapses. Such as a shcrtstop boot sand- wiehed between a sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly following a walk for a run in the fifth, and a two-ont miscue at second base with the bases loaded on a single and two walks in the sixth.

He walked seven, very uncom- mon for him. but fanned ten as he caused Shelton to strand 10 run- ners. Walking he first two in the opening frame, he got out of trouble with a strikeout and dou- ble play. A walk and single put two aboard in the fifth but a whiff solved it, the same combi- nation came up in the sixth, and two walks put another pair aboard in the ninth but he had the stuff to get out of it each time, He was nicked for only three singles, by Jim Richards in the third, by Darrell Cochran in the fifth, and by Snvder in the sixth. SNYDER PITCHED the kind of ball worthy of winning most of the time. He had nothing" to be ashamed of-in losing to the much more experienced MeCleary club. averaging four or five years older.

Shelton's junior legion baseballers beat themselves in the nightcap as Burien's Connie Mack team swept both games of Sunday's dou- bleheader at Loop Field," 7-2 and 8-7. Ken Droscher took his first tough test in the inaugural after nursing a broken foot since Jan- nary and showed everything bnt the conditioning necessary to be better than ever on the slab. He had the stuff but not the contxol, and that finally compelled his retirement in the fifth. He got through the first two innings in good shape and picked up the first two outs in the third befo|'e a walk. a triple and a single pf the visitors out in front, 2-1. Shelton had scored an unearned tally in the first on a pair o1" walks to Mike Sheedy and Brian Snyder and a throwing error on the sec- ond leg of Bill Sloan's'double-play grounder. ,VtIEN SHELTON dented the dish again, in the fifth on Sloan's double behind Snyder's walk, Bur- mn was ahead 7-1, having scored three in the fourth and two in the fifth to bring Tint Rose m to re- lieve Droscher. A sacrifice fly and a sacrifice bunt. following two singles and a walk which loaded the bases, scor- ed two of the fourth frame tal- lies and a single got the third. Three singles and a walk got the fifth inning pair. Lean Bob Towle, also making his first pitching start since last July, deserved to be a winner in the second game. Burien earned only three of its eight runs. seven scored off Towle and one off Sloan. who came on in the sixth with none out and the bases full as the result of a single sand- wiehed between two walks. SHELTON WAS ahead at the time. 6-4, but a sacrifice fly cleaned the bases after Shelton in- fielders got through throwing the sphere around wildly. A fom'th tun---and what eventually proved to be the winner---then was .ad- ded on another error on a double steal after a walk and a single. Shelton nmde a valiant effort to offset these fielding sins in the last of the seventh when Tim Sheedy drew a walk as a pinehhit- ter, Ron Landis singled to center and was forced by Darrell Coch- ran for the second out, and A1 Wagner whacked his third single of the game to score Sheedy. Coch- ran was nipped at the plate with the tying run trying to score on Snyder's infield single a moment later and that was the bail game. The .play was close and required a perfect throw The first base- man made it. BUT ]FOR TItE fatal sixth in- ning outburst of wild throwing, Tim Rose stood to be the hero of the second game.
