Class ‘D’ Six Inning No-Hitter By Andrewes
A.K.O and Jackson Park scored victories in abbreviated MIC Mac Baseball League Class “D” contests Tuesday night.
On their home field, the Fratmen went six innings before darkness forced curtailment as they led Civitan Club, 2-0 and Larry Andrewes was rolling along with a no-hitter.
Jackson Park was in front 9-2 over Varsity Sport Centre on the Prince Rd. Park diamond when the contest was halted by darkness.
Ken Long’s single and Rog Awad’s double gave the Fratmen their first run in the opening inning and in the fifth Andrewes drew a walk, stole second and came across with the second tally on an infield error.
Andrewes faced 21 batters over the six innings, striking out five and walking three while holding league leading Civitan hitless.
Awad’s double and single and Long’s one base knock was the sum total of the winner’s hit output against Rich Piekos and Gino Piazza.
Umpire Clayt Tourangeau sent Piekos to the showers in the first inning for “extra talking” and A.K.O. manager Bob Knudsen also drew an early exit following words with a spectator.
Civitan shows a record of 7-4 with Fratmen sharing second position with a 5-5 mark.
Jackson Park ran up a 9-0 count over Varsity Sports Centre after three frames and had little trouble as Greg Haman held the Sport Shop boys to five hits.
Gary Jackson hit a triple and single and George Lung had a pair of one-base knocks in the winning cause.
Jackson Park leveled off their season’s record at 6-6 while Varsity suffered its seventh loss in 11 tries.
