Le9 The Charles Town American baseballers may. have had better teams in the past, but they've never had a better hitting team theia this 1961 aggregation and they proved it again Sunday when they blasted the strong Federal Storage team of Washington, D. C. for 12 hits and 8 runs for an 8-4 victory on the Legion field. It was the seventh victory in nine starts for the Legion. It was also the second time this season the Waiters-managed Leigonnaires have 'bested the Leaders in the Washington Indust rial League, and this time it was the old master, Gilbert Miller who went to the mound for the Legion and hurled eight-hit ball at the visitors. Only in the second frame did the Washington boys give Miller any trouble at all and in that frame he gave up three hits and two runs to give Washington a temporary 2-2 tie in the battle Wimpy Zombro started the scoring fireworks for the Legion in the first frame when after he had singled, he moved on to sec- ond when Stotler was hit by a pitched ball, wentto third on an error on the Federal Storage shortstop and then scored on a fielders choice.

Win many a moon. A record crowd is being antici- pated for this game since it will be the second meeting of the two teams, and since this game could very well be the turning point in the pennant race. In the first meeting of the two teams at Bakerton the VFW boys handed Baker(on their first de- feat by a 7-4 score. And this re- match will be an even more hotly contested decision than the firs~ one. Bakerton will be after revenge for that first defeat and also to try with everything Sunday to knock the VFW boys out of the pennant race. By the same token the Vets, realizing they must take this'one to stay in the thick of the race. will also be going with every thing. There will also be a hot battle in Winchester Sunday with the Winchester ~cams battling. This is one game the Rebels must take to stay in the pennant race.
