The Cougars trailed the visiting Patriots 9-2 with one out and the bases empty in the bottom of the Jefferson seventh inning and then the roof caved in on the visiting Marylanders. A single to Jim Lanham and a walk to David Diehl began an amazing rally for the home- standing Jefferson team. After l the Patriots' starting pitcher was given his walking papers, two TJ relievers issued a total of' six walks to the Cougars, and this, coupled with a pair of singles, gave Jefferson five runs. With the bases still loaded, Lanham lined a single to left to plate two runs and tie the score. When the left-fielder booted Lanham's liner, Junior Gran. tham used his superior speed to race home with a score from first and give the Cougars the victory. Laam led the Cougar hit parade with three, while Keith Carley, Grantham, Jeff Reynolds and Tony Smith picked up two safeties apiece. In the nightcap, Jefferson made the most of its pitching, as Randy Rutherford went the distance and allowing only six hits in the seven innings he hurled. The Cougars picked up their ninth win against only two losses with the help of some key walks, a leftover ingredient from the first tilt. With the score tied at 1-1 and going to the Jefferson half of the sixth inning, the Cougars combined three hits and a pass to a hit batter to plate the win- ning run along with two in- surance tallies. Key strokes in that frame came off the bats of Reynolds, Kevin Wilt and pinch-hitter Warren Stewart, the latter ripping a key double. No Jef- ferson player had more than one safety in the entire game. Last Thursday, Jefferson squandered a three-run lead by allowing arch-rival Martinsburg to gain an extra-inning 10-9 vic tory. Je'fferson led 9-6 going into the final inning when Martinsburg's Bill Bartley, Kevin Russ and Keith Brooks hit home runs to knot the score. With the lases loaded, Bartley walked in the bottom of the eighth inning to bring the Bulldogs a come-from behind win. Martinsburg led early in the contest, 6-3, but Jefferson bat- fled back to take a 7-6 edge behind Junior Grantham's double and a Jim Lanham home run. The Cougars padded their lead in the seventh with two more runs as Lanham rapped a sharp single off the pitcher's leg with two men on. However, it was not to he the Cougars' day as the Bulldogs utilized its home runs to great advantage at Pikeside Field, where the fences are installed for senior Little League play. Jefferson's second loss of last week came at the hands of a strong Frederick High School team at the Marylanders' field, 14-7. Jefferson erupted for six runs in the first inning as Sam Dillow knocked in two teammates with a single, but the Cougars could score only once more in the remainder of the contest, that on a solo four-bagger by David Diehl in the second frame. 'Frederick's Don Boyd led the Cadets' power parade with a two-run home run in the decisive third inning, when the home team crossed home plate 9 times.

Flashy Count Good Investment BIG WINNER: Flashy Count, who was purchased for $700 as a yearling, has earned more than $100,000 in seven years of racing. The 10-year old is nearing top shape for his 1978 debut. After many years as a fan of the mutuel windows, John Sch. maus decided it was time to invest in a horse he could call his own. In the fall of 1969 he spent $700 for a yearling named Flashy Count. At that time, Schmaus did not realize what a bargain he had bought. Although Flashy Count C 0 N v did not race until his 3.year-old seasOn, by the end of 1977 he had amassed $100,000 in earnings and is looking forward to racing again this year.
