The meeting between the Senior Division All-Stars of the Potomac Little League and the Stars of the Martinsburg Seniors, played at Pikeside Field near Martinsburg, matched two fine high school pitchers in John Mahoney, star of the Jefferson High pitching staff the past season and Gary Nail, a pitching standout for the Martinsburg High Bulldogs, the past season. The result was. a low scoring exciting 2-1 decision for the Martinsburg team. The Potomac Stars had several opportunities to win the ball game, but could not come through with hits when needed. As late as the seventh inning, the Potomac Stars threatened to i turn defeat into victory when they scored their only run in the ball game and'had the bases still loaded. But Nail managed to retire the next two Potomac batters and save the victory. Martinsburg took a 14) lead in the third frame by scoring an unearned run. The Martinsburg batsmen made it 2-0 with an earned run in the fourth and that was all the scoring until the seventh when the Potomac Stars came up with a rally to get their only run when Brian Jones singled to drive in a runner from third base. Mahoney went the entire distance for the Potomac Stars and fanned ten Martinsburg batters and gave up only five hits, but the Martinsburg hits came at the right time to produce runs Nail went the entire route for the Martinsburg team. The Potomac Stars are still in tournament play, however, since it is a double-elimination play tournament. They were to have tangled with Taylor County's All-Stars Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. at the Pikeside Field near Martinsburg, while Mar- tinsburg was to have played Hardy County at 6 p.m. at the same site.
