Ties Final In Border City, 1-1: Springman Count Winning Tally Without a Hit
Hec Marinacci twirled a no-hitter Thursday night at Windsor Stadium as Oliver’s Spring Service nipped Windsor Merchants, 1-0 in the Border City Softball League finals. The teams are tied, 1-1, in the best-of-seven game series and meet in the third test Sunday at 10:30a.m. at Lanspeary Park.
The contest was a rugged battle throughout with the Spring Service boys counting their winning run in the ninth inning to snap the scoreless struggle. Over the distance, Marinacci claimed 12 strikeout victims and issued two walks. Bill Noble, his mound opponent, lost a heart-breaker giving up only two hits, striking out six and issuing three free passes. The winning run came after Ron Carley led off with a sharp grounder to Roger Trahan and the Merchant’s infielder bobbled the ball. Noble uncorked two wild pitches and Carley moved to third.
Doug Carley struck out but catcher Ted Matiz dropped the ball and on the throw to first Ron Carley raced in from third, beating the relay back to the plate to score the winning run and break up the game. Swively had a pair of singles for Oliver’s only hits.
It is then important to discuss your wishes with your family.
