Duckett Controls Dieterich



Dieterich got that run back in the top of the 4th to tie again the score again. Poe drew a walk and Hartke singled. Campton sacrificed to move the runners again. Shoenskea and Bohnhoff walked and forced in a run, 3-3. Hatfield squeezed a Bohnhoff line drive and Duckett was out of the jam.

That sigh of relief turned into a Ram charge. Sheldon Meyer led off with a single and Brown sacrificed him over. Keown was hit by a pitch and Peifer walked to load the bases with one out. Hatfield mcame to the plate and made Dieterich pay with a 2-run single. Standerfer launched a ball into center and, though it was caught, Peifer tagged and scored. Hatfield had stolen 2nd and 3rd and scored on a passed ball. 

Shelby was up 7-3 with two outs, but still reloaded. Manship walked, Williams singled and Duckett singled to load the bases. A ground out kept them from capitalizing on their second round of scoring in the 4th.

Traub tried to spark the Maroons with a lead-off single in the 5th. But, a fielder's choice a fly out to Hatfield in center and a shortstop unassisted play by Meyer stopped the Maroons.

The Rams weren't done. In the 5th, again with two outs, Shelby worked two runs. Peifer walked. Hatfield was plunked by a pitch. With two on and two outs, Standerfer came through again. He hit an RBI single, 9-3 Rams.

Duckett was into the 6th and still kept Dieterich under control. Peifer threw out the first batter, 3rd to 1st. Peifer then caught a pop up. Duckett won a battle at the plate with a 2-2 pitch for his third strikeout, sending the Maroons down in order for the first time in the game.

Shelby threatened again in the 6th. Williams led off drawing a walk. He went to 2nd on a wild pitch, then to 3rd on a ground out. Traub threw two of his three strikeouts in a row to send the Maroons to the 7th for a hopeful comeback. They got a couple of base runners, but there comeback hope was not realized.
