PAGE  I-I'ELTON--MASON COUNTY 30URNAE.--Publisliei] in "Chrstmas:own, U.g.A.", Shel[on, Washinori 4th District Hopes Down Drain After Dual Losses To Parkland Unearned runs, tle "oane of baseball, banished Shelton from the 4th District American Legion junior baseball championships on Sunday afternoon at Steilacoom, A third strika which got by catcher Jim Richards in a bases- full situation allowed Parkland to score a 7th nning run and a 7-6 victory which bombed Shelton out of the title playoffs. It was Parkland's second straight victory over Shelton. fol- lowing a 6-1 success last Wednes- da m which the winners were Y presented four unearned runs on the same field. Bill Sloan, Shelton's ace pitcher, was the victim in both cases, al- though his loss Sunday came in relief of stsrter Brian Snyder. WITH THE SCORE tied at 6-6 as the team went into the final inning Sunday, Sloan walked Den- nis Nelson and slab-rival Rich Welfringer aroun0 a tap badk to the mound for one out. Then he was unable to handle a hard rap off his glove for an infield hit to Mike Bertucci which filled the bases. As Sloan struck out Tim Sherry the ball tore past Richards to the backstop a0. Nelson scored. Shelton was unable to ruffle the lefthanded Welfringer except for Sloan's single to rightcenter (his third of the game in the bottom half and so died Shelton's hopes for the 4th District title. THE GAME was a run-scoring duel in its early stages with Park- land getting one in the first, Shel- ton two. on A1 Wagner's walk, Tom Wingard's double and two infield outs), Parkland another in the second which Shelton matched (on singles by Tim Rose and Mike Shcedy sandwiched around a pas- sed ball). Parkland three in the third and Shelto one (on a two- base overthrow of Snyder's groun- der to short and singles by Sloan and Terry LaBissoniere), Park- land an unearned solo in the fourth and Shelton a tying pair in the fifth f on a two base overthrow of Snyder's grounder to third, Sloan's single, a bad throw to the plate trying to get Suyder on LaBis- soniere's grounder to third, and Richards' single to right). Parkland's nm in the fourth came after the game's finest de- fensive play, oddly. Rich Houk was on second after his single and a wild pitch, with one out, when Bruce Harding blasted a drive to rightcenter which LaBissonere raced miles to catch. Houk tagged up and went for third after the catch and when Denny Bailey's re- lay throw went wild at third Houk continued on to score. PARKLAND'S VICTORY Wed- nesday was simply a case of Shel- ton being too generous with gift runs along with inability to l'it ef- fectively the southpaw breaking stuff of Jerry Bittner. Shelton's run ia the first was unearned, coming on walks to Wingard and Snyder, an infield out, and a passed ball. So Parkland's two earned runs off Sloan still Were enough to win, both coming during a 3-run sixth, Shelton had defensive troubles around the keystone sack which accounted for the first three Park- land markers.
