I Leetown at Winchester The Tri - County Baseball League has developed into one of the hot, test three.way races in some years with only one game sepa, rating the three top teams as the result of action ,this past Sunday on four differer~t fronts. The Lee~own batsmen, possibly the hottest team in the league right now, pounded out a total of 26 base hits, includ~ing 12 for ex- tra base sas they swept a double- header from Sleepy Creek on the Levtown diamond Sunday b~ scores of 12-7 and 13-9. And only wins by Tomahawk and Bakerton. prevented the Lee town batsmen from moving to within a half game of the league lead. They now show an llA mark for the season. Tomahawk, with a 12-3 mark nmnaged ~to stay on top of the heap alor~g with Bakerton by scoring a 9-6 victory over Win- chester, Va., and Bakerton batted their way to an 18-8 victory ove~ Shepherdstown. wItho was young Jimmy Mahoney, hurled 14 inn~gs during the long afternoon of action, that got credit for both Leetown vic- tories. The double victory gave Leetown ~ine victories in the last 11 games. Mahoney wer~t all the fo~ five innrings relief ball .to get that wi'n too. A three-run homer by Jack Burch and two fourmasters by Bob Davis powered Leetown tO victory in the first game a~ though Sleepy Creek out.hit the winners, 12-11, as Bob Shope weal four-for.five. John Bradley hammered out $ double and two triples and Burch had a double and two singles as Leetown rallied from a 7-3 deficil to win the second tilt. Barr~ Mills went four-for-seven in the twin bill. Seven.Run Spree Ba;ke~ton scored seven times in the fifth inning to rout Shel~ herdstown. Gerald Jami*son and Wayne $amison each had three of B a kertons^-'-- 14 safeties while Ray J'amison, Bucky Garner and Son, ny Morga~l each had two hits.
