Cowan leads Dairymen to victory
Class ‘D’ Purity Dairies and Varsity Sports Centre scored victories in Mic Mac Baseball League Class “D” contests Sunday.
At Stodgell Park, although they were only able to garner two hits, the Dairymen shoved single runs across in the first and fourth innings to defeat league leading A.K.O. 2-0.
Varsity Sports Centre broke loose for a pair of three-run innings in downing Civitan Club 7-5 on the Prince Rd. Park diamond.
Victories left the Dairymen and Sport Shop boys sharing second place in the four team loop.
The Dairymen counted their first run without a hit in the first frame when Larry Skaleski led off with a walk, stole second and came home on an error.
Second marker came in the fourth Mark Kulick strolled, moved to second on Chuck LeFaive’s single, took third on a wild pitch and came home on another error.
Doug Cowan gave up only four hits, all singles, to Ron Carley, Ken Long, Les Robinson and Ken Smith.
Three runs in the sixth gave Varsity a victory over Civitan crew in a loos-fielding contest in which the teams combined for 14 errors.
Doug Ferguson held Civitan to three safeties, one a triple by Jim Miller and another good for two bases by Rich Piekos.
Garry Thompson had a triple and single for the winners and Doug Specht slammed a double.
