The Yankees bad gotten off to a bad start and were trailing the Giants by a 3-0 score when Lan- ham was called to the mound to ~ake over for D. Perks• And from that point until the final frame, Lanham held the Giants to one run and five hits. At the same time fhe Yankees after scoring a single run in the ~second frame blasted over five more in the third to take the lead and stay in front the rest of the way. And in this frame it was none other than Lanham who play ed the major role in the big rally as he blasted a home run driving ~,n three runs. Altogether the Yankees blasted out 16 hits and scored 16 times against Tomblin and Roland. This victory, together with the 16-5 win which they scored June t5 over the Cubs, nmved the Yah '˘ees from last place into fourth alace just a half game back of • h~st division.

The reason for this policy Morison said is because those who have been working the admissions gate at the Legion field on Sunday have found it next to impossible to determine which people are going to see the Legion game and which are actually going to the Little League diamond. In the past a number of people have not been charged at the gate for the Legion games when they stated they were going to the Little Lea gue diamond to watch the young- sters practice or play. And in some cases this has not been true. So in order to avoid any confu~ ion on this matter, it has been decided that the Little League teams will use the field six days S~ per week, but not on, unday. More Wins The Bakerton Senators have chalked up Victories in their last three games to move into a tie for the lead in Potomac Little League play with the Shepherds- town Cardinals, each team having won five games and dropped one through MondaY afternoon.

In this game Tom .ttoffmaster faced only 34 men and fanned six and walked only two runs on sev en hits, three of them by Kidrick the Shepherdstown catcher.
