Sinoviclr Goes Route For Loss;
9th Frame Rally Cinches Tilt
YAKIMA. 'May 21-Special)-tocking .up.. their sixth straight
win and at the same time handing the Salem 'Senators their iilih
consecutive set-back, the Yakima Start tonight dropped the Solons,
-S, in a ragged WIL, fray played before 1800 lang. It gave the Yaks
3-0 lead in the team' current
.series, final tilt to be played to
morrow night.
For the Solons it was .Dick
Sinovich who drew the loss, his
fifth as against two wins. Oddly
the Salems outhit the Yaks, 14
12 and under-errored 'm, 3-4,
but the Stars turned the fracas
their way with a spirited ninth
frame rally which netted three
tallies. It was a single' t)y Les
Barnes which drove in the' pay
off counter after Charley Peter
son (of all things, Solon Skipper
Jack Wilson's brother-in-law)
. had knotted tne score wiin a pincn
blow. Gene Thompson - accounted
lOT WC IXi k 1 Ult V. wo uu.
, -with a circuit blast.
The Wilsons started strong with
four runs through the initial four
frames off Yak Starter Beak
Fedemeyer,. but a 'three - tally
surge by the Stan in the fourth
built around Manager Harland
Cliffs two-run homer, pushed the
winners ahead. The Senators tied
er ud in the eighth on an error,
single and went temporarily
ahead in the top half of the ninth
on two more runs produced on a
Yak overthrow.
The loss pulled the Solons down
to an even .500 count in the
standings, one game above the
fifth place Tacoma Tigers and
still one game out of the first di
vision. Saim (I) ;TUm ) .

Suansong for 'Ketisch
The junior high athletic season ended Monday and with the
windup we received a final phone call from Bob Keuscher. relating
to the climactic Farrish-Leslle ball game. By final we mean that
Bob's made his last report in his capacity as Leslie coach, since he's
by his own choice, stepping out of the Rocket: sports picture come
next year. Now Bob didn't make that Monday call purely because
his club captured that encountr. All year long he's been a reliable
source, of sports items whether they showed Bob's club on the
short end or not was immaterial as long- as there waa story value
there. And he's done it voluntarily, and of course, minus any com
pensation. He's always played and coached "the game hard and
square and he's met us scribes MORE than halfway for Bob was
once knee-deep in the news game himself. Guys like him make re
porting easy. Luck to Bob as he transfers his talents to school ad
ministrative affairs . . . And while the bouquets are being passed
out, posies to Leonard Warren, the former cohort of SOCE's At
Simpson, who engineered the Farrish nine to the city gronf alon
even though the Pioneers were forced to utilise a Softball layout
for their .hardball practice sessions . .
