Slants From The Sports Desk:
Monday's the day when the city's two Little Leagues, the American and National, play at Staley Stadium. It's also the start of tournament competition for Brunswick and Westminster, two other teams in District 2. Thurmont. Sykesville and Emmitsburg, the clubs rounding out the district, get into action later in the week. It's chance, not choice, that pits the Americans against the Nationals in first-round play. The pairings for the tournament were held July 16 with the Nationals dipping into the hat and coming up with Number three and the Americans number four. If you’re interested, the American League has yet to win a contest from the Nationals in tournament competition. Going back to 1955, the American League's first year of tourney play, the Nationals have won four games, in 1955, 1956, 1957 and 1959. In 1958, both clubs lost in the opening round. The Nationals dropped a game to Westminster while Brunswick put it on the Americans, Last year, the Nationals were first to leave the scene when Brunswick knocked them off. The Americans gained the second round with a first-game victory over Sykesville. The largest score by which the Nationals beat the Pointers, after being beaten last Americans was in 1957 when the club ran up a 13-0 victory. That was the second year in a row the Americans had been blanked by the Nationals. In 1956, the Nationals took a 7-0 decision. There’s a chance Frederick may be the site of some state tournament action. The winner from District 2 meets the District 1 champ at Hagerstown. District 1 composed of Washington, Allegany and Garrett County If a Frederick club wins in the Hub City, the next game would be played in Frederick against a team from the Baltimore area. By the way, the game Monday night marks the tenth anniversary of Little League baseball in Frederick It was ten years ago, nearly to the day, that Hagerstown scored a 7-4 victory over the jittery Frederick team at the old Motter Avenue park which is now part of the North Frederick Elementary school playground.

Little League Notes:
Even before the game started last night between the American and National Little Leaguers, it looked  as if it might not go the full six innings . . . The black  clouds were rolling over the mountain and posed such a  threat that the game was underway 10 minutes before it  was supposed to be. The 6:15 starting time was set so the local radio station could air the game in its entirety,  but, radio or not, it was decided to go at 6:05. The game was stopped three times in the first inning when the wind whipped up dust around home plate and the pitcher's mound . . . Once, it nearly blew lead- off hitter Buddy Keyser out of the box . . . But the stocky second baseman for the American League hung in there long enough to lift a fly to the Nationals' centerfielder.  There were six North End players in the National showery morning ceremony League starting lineup . . . The NEC A club won both halves of the regular season In fact, they were beaten only once, so there weren’t any questions raised the required five innings, the of the the ability of the team's all-star picks. ;  Larry Snow, of the National League, was the most disappointed player at Staley Stadium  wasn't  because of the game being rained out . . . he had injured his shoulder Monday afternoon, just hours before the game time and knew he would be unable to  play . . . But he dressed for the game, anyway — sling and all. While the rain forced the players into the dug-out, most of the fans had to crowd around the Staley Stadium Field house . . . But space under the small overhanging roof was limited, so the management offered the field house basement as temporary shelter from the downpour. It started to rain about 6:20 and lasted until 6 :30 when the Nationals hustled back on the field . . . But starting pitcher Tim Ambrose had barely got his arm loosened up when the water started coming down in sheets . . . One of the players shouted across the field, "Our dugout leaks, does yours? After fifteen minutes of steady rain, umpire-in-chief Bob Cole called it off ... The pitcher's mound was nearly under water and home plate was almost in the same condition . . . And it was still raining when the fans began to make their way to their cars. Seconds after the decision was made to cancel the game, the rule books were hauled out . . . What's the rule on the continuation of rained-out games was the general theme of the conversation in the field house press box . . . The answer was found in the Little League tournament rule book and it was announced that the game will continue Tuesday (today) at the point where it was called off ... It was also clarified that the same pitchers may pitch. Then, what happens to the Emmitsburg-Sykesville game scheduled for Tuesday was the question that followed right on the heels of the rain-game discussion ... It was finally decided to wait for Glenn Rippeon, district director to make a final decision.

Slants From The Sports Desk:
Tuesday's continuation of the American-National Little League All-Star game drew a slightly larger crowd than Monday's shortened contest, but it was far below the turnouts of past seasons. That's when the fans were lined up along the left and right field fences and spilled over around the outfield fence. Perhaps the most interesting statistic on Tuesday's game was that until the third inning neither pitcher had worked a count past 2-2. In the National third Bill Norwood had a 3-2 count before winning pitcher Jeff Freland fanned him. Tim Ambrose, the National League starter, didn't allow the third ball to a battler until two were out in the fifth inning. Dennis Oram worked the big right-hander to a 3-1 count before drawing a walk. Freland showed his composure on the hill. The American League hurler hit three men. one in the first, one in the second and one in the fourth but it didn't fluster him at all. In fact, two of the three men were hit Freland fanned. Following the final out. the Americans jumped on Freland. It looked as if the whole team were  to congratulate him at once as he was wrestled to the ground by his teammates. They finally got to their feet to shake hands with the Nationals. Thursday at 6:15pm Frederick – the American League’s new name – travels to Thurmont. If Frederick American wins, Friday is the date for the District 2 finals. The site is unknown.

Thurmont is knocked out by Home Runs
Pressed to hold a 4-2 lead, the Frederick National Little League all- stars erupted last night for six runs in the fourth inning, four on back-to-back home runs and went on to defeat Thurmont, 11-3, before a crowd of 350 at Staley Stadium. The Nationals advance to the second round of District play Monday night, facing Brunswick, a 1-0 winner over East Frederick, at Staley Stadium. Maurice Boyd and Mike Cox, struck the telling blows during the fourth inning uprising in which the Nationals sent ten men to the plate and shelled Thurmont starter Johnny Brice from the mound. Boyd delivered with a three -run blast over the leftfield barrier and Cox followed with another home run over the centerfield wall. Around these, Gary Bowens' singled in Jerry Falk with the first run of the inning and Chet Baker chased in Greg Smith with the final tally. Greg Englar was the winning pitcher, allowing four hits in as many innings. Johnny Putnam hurled the final two innings and was touched for three hits. Fanned seven in a row Englar breezed through the first two innings. He fanned the first seven players he faced before Bruce Myers grounder to the left of Putnam at second base went for a base hit. After this, Englar struck out the next three Thurmont players before Mike Humerick's fly ball to left ended the third inning. By this time, Frederick had a 4-0 lead. In the first inning, the Nationals pushed across a pair of runs on Putnam's single. His hit followed a hit batter and a single by Cox. The Nationals put together another two-run rally in the third with Cox again playing a major role. The catcher finished the evening with a perfect three-for-three at bat including two runs batted in and three runs scored. With two outs and Bowens on second. Cox sliced a liner into right field. Bowens came all the way around, and Cox coming at full speed, pulled into third for a triple. He rode home on Smith's single to left. Thurmont narrowed the margin with two runs in the top of the fourth. Englar retired the first two hitters, but Brice bounced a ground-rule double over the centerfield fence and Dick Benjamin singled to put runners at second and third. Then Myers lined a base hit just over the glove of Putman allowing both runners to score. Frederick's final run came in the fifth when Rollie Atkinson hit a home run off relief pitcher Denny Lingg who had replaced, Brice during the fourth-inning rally.

Englar Leads Frederick over Brunswick 9-1
Greg Englar, who Friday pitched the National Little League all-stars into the District semi-finals, last night stroked a grand slam home run and two singles to lead Frederick's 9-1 romp over Brunswick at Staley Stadium before 500 fans. Frederick advances to the finals Wednesday night Sykesville, in the Carroll County town. The winner moves to the state tournament in Hagerstown the following week. For the second game in a row the Nationals produced the big inning to pad their lead. Pitcher Maurice Boyd received the cushion last night when his teammates exploded for five runs in the third inning as he, in turn, hurled a five - hitter. Englar's blow came in the middle of the uprising and was off loser and starter Larry Garrott. Garrott was yanked after the blast with Jimmy Kane finishing the game for the Railroaders. Boyd led off the inning by beating out a bunt in front of the plate. Mike Cox grounded sharply to shortstop Jimmy Haller but the toss to second baseman Kane was hobbled and both runners were safe. Johnny Putnam singled past the bag at third and Boyd came all the way around for the first run. Greg Smith's bunt loaded the bases. Englar, who singled in the second inning, then lofted Garrott's 2-1 offering over the centerfield wall. This was Garrott's last pitch. Manager Bob Dawson replaced him with Kane who bailed out the Railroaders, getting Chet Baker to ground out and fanning Bobby Staley. Boyd, after getting himself in trouble the first inning, set Brunswick down in order in the second and third, but was in repeated hot water the last three innings. He finally lost his shutout in the fifth inning. The Railroaders momentarily unlocked the secret of how to reach base against the slim right hander. After Doug Campbell opened the fifth with a walk, consecutive bunts by Eddie Hill and Kane loaded the base with no outs. Boyd forced Dave Axline to pop out to third, but Brunswick scored its only run when Hailer's high hopper was fielded by first baseman Smith who tagged the hitter as the runner crossed the plate. However, a weird play killed Brunswick's rally. With runners on second and third, Boyd walked Neal Wilhelm which apparently kept the Railroader hopes alive. But Hill, the runner on third, was confused by the previous play and thought the walk to Wilhelm gave him a free pass to step on home plate. A running tag by catcher Cox ended that idea and  the inning. Frederick opened with two runs in the first and would have had more if Haller had started a quick double play on Cox' grounder. Leadoff hitter Rollie Atkinson reached first on an error and scored on Gary Bowen's triple inside the right field line. Bowen slid across on Boyd's grounder. The Nationals' last two runs came in the fifth and were gifts. Englar started the inning with his third base hit and moved to second on Baker's bunt After Staley grounded out. Atkinson lined one into left for a double. But the throw to second base went over the Railroaders head and bounced into foul territory behind first base. This enabled Atkinson to scamper all the way around to the plate, Frederick's ninth run.

All-Stars meet Salisbury Team Today at 615pm
HAGERSTOWN — Greg Englar’s bases loaded double in the third inning put Frederick ahead for the first time and pitcher Maurice Boyd. after a shaky start and a bout with the gopher ball, kept the all-stars there for a 5-4 victory over Hagerstown last night in the opening round of the state Little league tournament. Frederick faces East Salisbury today at 6:15p.m, with the winner advancing to the finals Saturday against the winner of today's first game between Stembridge and North East Baltimore at 3 p.m. The outburst in the third inning, helped along by Hagerstown's two miscues, was the only damage Frederick could inflict on southpaw Don Beard, who baffled the hitters with a collection of breaking pitches, outside of Boyd's two-run homer in the first inning that tied the game. Englar's two  base hit, a shot over the shortstop's head that bounced over the bounced over the leftfielder and hit against the fence, was setup on a walk, fielder's choice, a two base error and Mike Cox's bunt single. Rollie Atkinson drew a one-out pass, his second of the game, to open the frame and Johnny Putnam followed with a ground ball to third. The third baseman hesitated, then tried to nail Atkinson going to second, but threw the ball into right field and Frederick runners ended up on second and third. Boyd, his long first - inning homer still fresh in Beard's mind, got nothing good to hit and topped one to the third baseman. He bobbled the ball allowing Atkinson to scamper across and Putnam to move to third. Cox then attempted a safe squeeze bunt, but Putnam played it too safe and stayed rooted on third as Beard fielded the ball and dared him to try something. This loaded the bases. After Englar had fanned in the first inning on three pitches, it seemed Beard would again curve the tall 11 - year - old back to the bench. But the shortstop lashed a 2-1 pitch to left and Frederick was in front for the first time. It was up to Boyd after that. But he was suffering from an over - abundance of home run pitches and it showed again in the fourth inning as Dickie Parks belted his second homer of the game. This gave Hagerstown another run. Parks had gotten to Boyd in the second to slam one over the leftfield fence.  But that was it for Hagerstown. Boyd, throwing his fast ball more as the game progressed, set the side down in order the fifth and  sixth innings. He ended up with a five - hitter including 10 strikeouts and three walks. ; Hagerstown became the first team to jump in front of Frederick during this year's tournament. The Hub City stars greeted Boyd with two hits in the first to take a 2-0. Leadoff hitter Riggin Elliott walked and after Boyd notched his first whiff of the game. Beard singled past Putman into right field and only a quick fielding job by Atkinson kept Hagerstown from scoring. But Dave Haupt and Thurston Faulders followed Boyd's second strikeout with back-to-back base hits for a pair of runs.  Boyd evened the game with his homer after Putnam singled.  In the third, Hagerstown, on two walks sandwiched around a sacrifice, had runners at second and third with one out. But Boyd knuckled down and fanned two in a row to end the threat. Frederick loaded the bases in the fourth, but failed to score. Rickie Polino singled to left and went to second as the fielder misplayed the ball.  Polino overran second and was caught in a rundown. He made it safely to third on a close play. Atkinson walked for the third time and Boyd drew a two - out walk to fill them up. But Cox bounced one over the pitcher's head and it was snared by the shortstop who stepped on second for the final out Beard finished with a five hitter and walked four.

HAGERSTOWN — Only two of Frederick’s sharp but ill-timed 11 hits counted Friday as the all-stars resorted to home runs including a grand slam by Maurice Boyd to eliminate East Salisbury 5-2 in the semifinal round of the state Little League tournament at Hager Field. Frederick meets Stembridge of Baltimore today. 3 p m .  for the state crown and the right to a berth in the regional tournament in Kentucky. The all-stars had to rely on a  big inning for the second game.  in a row although they threatened in every frame and got a  combined two-hit pitching job from starter Mike Cox and reliever Greg Englar. Boyd's tremendous home run, a 250-foot whack that carried over the leftfield fence and across the street which runs past the park, drove in four runs and came with two outs in the fourth inning The first of two Salisbury double plays nearly checked Frederick in this inning, hut losing pitcher Joe Powell had a streak of wildness and with Gary Bowens on second via a base hit. He walked Rollie Atkinson and Johnny Putnam to load them for Bovd. Then in the next inning, Bowens connected and lifted a  fly ball over the right-centerfield  barrier for Frederick's fifth and final run. Cox worked along smoothly in the first inning, whiffing the side, but in the second he found himself in deep trouble after giving up back-to-back walks with one out. However second baseman Atkinson’s gamble on a grounder paid off as he tagged the runner going past and threw to first for a double play to end the inning. Again in the fourth, with Frederick leading 4-0 on Boyd's blast, Cox was in hot water. He was nicked for a lead-off single and issued two straight walks to fill the bases. This time Manager Don Englar lifted Cox, brought in his son, Greg. Butch Bradley greeted him with a fly to right, allowing one runner to come across. An infield out pushed the second run in and the final tally came after Englar's wild pitch. The rest of the way he blanked Salisbury without a hit. He fanned four and walked none.  Cox gave up both hits, walked four and struck out five. Frederick had a rally going in the sixth inning when Boyd walked and Cox followed with his fourth hit of the game. But a double play, going from third  baseman Hall Ewing, who forced  Boyd, to first base killed it. The All-Stars picked up two hits in the first inning and failed to score and had runners on first and second in the third inning but  couldn't get anything on the scoreboard. Frederick ended up with then stranded to Salisbury’s two.

August 5, 1963
Frederick LL Stars Lose, 1-0
HAGERSTOWN -  A Home run which landed only ten feet beyond Hager Field's 175-foot  right field barrier Saturday carries the Stembridge Little League all-stars, the Maryland champions, 600 miles to Ashland, Kentucky, this Thursday for the sectional tournament. Eddie Winand, a small left-handed swinging, lead-off hitter, was the Stembridge hero as he belted Maurice Boyd's second pitch of the game out of the park for a 1-0 victory over Frederick. But it took Bruce Conklin's pitching for the next six innings to put the tickets in the pockets of the Baltimore entry. Conklin, a right-hander, literally  baffled the Frederick batters, who out hit Stembridge three-to-two, but couldn't get the safety at the right time, He ended the game with twelve strikeouts to Boyd’s eight and walked two to the Frederick right-hander’s three. These two teams were about as even as Little League teams can get. Norm Sidel's single, the other Stembridge hit, came in the fourth and was a solid blow. All three Frederick safeties were hard hit balls. Rollie Atkinson opened the Frederick first with a double, Chet Baker singled in the second and Jerry Falk lined, one to center in the fifth. Each side missed chances to score. Frederick had runners on first and second with two outs in the second inning but failed to to chase one in. And in the fifth, the all-stars had players perched on second and third with two outs, but misfired. Stembridge threatened in the fourth inning when Sidel advanced to third following his base hit. Boyd. however, got the side out without any damage. Conklin mixed his pitches well and set down the last four men to face him on whiffs. In fact, he worked his way through the top part of the Frederick lineup for ten of his 12 strikeouts, but the bottom four hitters gave him trouble.

Wilhelm stops Frederick for Brunswick
BRUNSWICK— Neil Wilhelm silenced the bats of the Frederick Little League Monday night with a three-hit shutout as Brunswick topped the Nationals, 14-0 to win the District 2 tournament.  The win puts Brunswick into the state tournament starting August 6th in Salisbury. Wilhelm fanned 10 batters and exhibited near perfect control by walking only one man. The only hits off the hard- throwing right-hander were Joe Dutrow's scratch single in the third inning, Pete Cline's sharp single in the third and Tim Hall's base hit to right field in the fifth inning. Wilhelm was in trouble only once in the game, in the third inning, when Frederick got runners on first and second with only one out. Centerfielder Ken Anders saved Wilhelm some embarrassment at the point when he made a fine running catch in right centerfield on Hall's blooper over second. Wilhelm then slipped a third strike past Greg Englar. Englar, everybody's choice to start for Frederick, played shortstop and yielded the starting assignment to Tim Hall who did a fine job after a slow start. Manager Don Englar explained that he wanted Greg to start the series in Salisbury, so he took a gamble and pitched Hall. Little League rules state that no pitcher can pitch in two successive games. Hall got off to a shaky start in the first inning when "Brunswick got two runs and two hits but then pitched hitless, shutout ball to the fifth inning.  Joe Himes led off the game for Brunswick with a bunt pushed down the third base line. By the time third baseman Dave Bowens and Hall got to the ball, Himes was across first base with a bunt single. John Pearson then flied to centerfielder Pete Cline but Wilhelm slapped a ball to first baseman Ken Boyd who muffed it for an error. After a wild pitch, catcher Mike Deener ripped the first pitch up the right – centerfield alley for a double, scoring both runners. Deener overran the bag at second and was tagged out by Joe Dutrow. Hall, who yielded only four hits, then breezed through the next three innings allowing no hits and fanning five batters. Brunswick got to the lefthander for two insurance runs in the fifth with Wilhelm providing the key hit, a double to right - centerfield. Allen Roberson led off with a solid single between the bag and the third baseman. Himes then laid down another bunt for a base hit. Englar came on at that point and John Pearson hit a shot at first baseman Boyd who touched first with the runners moving up. Wilhelm came to the plate next and ripped the first pitch for a double to plate the final two runs.

East Frederick Hands Nationals 8-2 Defeat
East Frederick's Little League all-stars battered the National League, 8-2, last night at Staley Stadium to sweep into the second round of district tournament play Wednesday night at Sykesville. Steady Jerome Rollins, whose wide breaking curve kept the Nationals off guard most of the game, pitched a two - hitter. The right-hander struck out nine packing six of them in the final two innings. He walked only one. The loss went to lefthander Tim Hall who was shelled from the mound in the sixth inning without retiring a batter. He faced four before Bobby Stockman came on to finish out the inning. East Frederick, playing only its second year of tournament competition, took an early lead with a run in the fourth on Randy Shores' homer and then added two more in the fifth on Terry Palm's homer. Then the winners polished off the Nationals with five in the sixth. Rollins, mixing his curve and fast ball effectively, was touched for a run in the fourth when Stu Smallwood, who singled and went to second and on to third on errors, scored on Bobby Lee's fly to center. The other National run was on Dave Bowen's homer over the leftfield wall in the fifth. The big sixth for East Frederick was kindled by Rollins' lead - off single. Shores and Randy Hill followed with bunt singles to load the bases and then Denny Easterday poked a two - run single through the infield into right. That was the end of Hall who had given up 10 hits, struck out three and walked none. But the East Frederick assault continued on relief pitcher Stockman, a right-hander. Bill Jackson greeted Stockman with a run - scoring single to right which also advanced Easterday to third Marvin Thompson's bouncer to first result in Easterday being nailed at the plate for the first out with Jackson moving to third. After Thompson swiped second, Palm ran his RBI total to four with a two - run single up the middle Palm was out stealing for the second out and Stockman fanned Jerry Colliflower for the final out. In the home sixth, Rollins struck out the side to end the game.

The victory made a winner out of Smallwood, who went the distance on the mound, giving up seven hits, three earned runs, walking four and striking out nine. The loser was John Bowen, who gave up four earned runs, seven hits and struck out four. He did not walk a batter. Smallwood had two hits in the game, and knocked in two runs.

National versus Sykesville
SYKESVILLE — In a storybook finish the Frederick National League scored two runs on an error with two outs in the bottom of the last inning to edge the Sykesville All-Stars 6-5. With one out in the sixth inning, National's Jim Hammond singled to keep alive the Frederick team. Billy Hess, who went two-for-three for the night, followed with a walk and the runners moved up on Randy Smallwood's sacrifice out. An intentional walk to Dick Hall set the stage for the storybook finish. Daryl Reichart dragged a hit down the first base line and was tagged for the last out but then first baseman Jeff Lewis dropped the ball. Two runners scored and the game ended with Frederick National League on top. It was a heart - breaker for the home team, who has never won a tournament game at home, as they rallied from a 3-2 deficit in the fifth inning to go on top 5-3. Sykesville had only gotten to National starter Ron Ford for single runs in the first and second innings and w e r e turning in goose-eggs for the next two frames. Jeff Lewis had reached base on an error by second baseman Charles Blizzard and scored on Doug Shipley's double. A walk passed ball and error on the pitcher brought home the fourth and fifth Sykesville runs in the fifth inning. The Frederick Nationals broke loose in the first inning two errors by Sykesville. Frederick opened the inning with back-to-back singles and t h e n Dick Hall slammed a line shot to right field which brought the two runners home. On a combination of errors, by the right fielder and pitcher, Hall reached third base and came home on a passed ball. The game shaped up to be a battle between two blond southpaws. Little Jeff Lewis shut out the Nationals on only one hit for three innings following his shaky start. Frederick's Ford was nearly as effective as he stopped the hard-hitting Sykesville All - Stars on four hits and two runs before entering the fatal fifth inning. He chalked up five strikeouts in the four and a third innings he hurled. Besides Hess, with two hits the Frederick team got hits from Hall, Randy Smallwood Reichart. Ford and Hammond. Wayne Whittaker and Lewis each collected two hits for Sykesville while Shipley, Johnny Owens, Scott Hammett and Don Bellin chipped in single hits. Winning pitcher was reliever Reichart, who struck out two and gave two hits in the inning and two-thirds he hurled. Losing pitcher was Tommy Gilbert, who came on in the fifth inning, also.

National League Tops Defending Champion
WESTMINSTER — Dick Hall pitched a two-hitter to lead the National League past defending state champion Westminster 6-0 Wednesday in the second  round of the Little League District play. The National All - Stars will meet the winner of the Brunswick-American League game to decide the district crown. Hall's fastball was too much for Westminster as he struck out 10 in the six inning game. Steve Sentz's double in the first and a single by Charles Grumbine in the fifth were the only hits off the National League hurler. He would have had a one hitter but after Sentz had apparently fanned in the first the umpire called a balk on Hall and discounted the strikeout. Sentz followed with his double. Hall, who has had trouble with his control in the past, walked four. He also hit the only home run of the game when he capped the National League scoring with a solo clout over the centerfield fence in the fifth inning off reliever Jeff Widerman. Widerman relieved starter Rod Ecker who was tagged for five runs in three innings. He deserved a better rate as three errors in the third help push across four runs on only two hits. The big error came when with men on second and third, two out and the NL holding a 3-0 lead, Greg Brown sliced a fly ball out to right. The right fielder got his glove on the ball, but couldn't hold it as both runners scored. Earlier in the inning a single by Billy Hess and an error by the shortstop allowing Randy Smallwood to reach first had put men on first and second with none out. Hall then lined a single to right driving in Hess and he continued to second himself when the right fielder had trouble picking up the ball. Smallwood scored on a sacrifice fly by Jim Hammond. Ron Ford followed with a walk setting up the two run error on Brown's fly ball. The National League had taken a 1-0 lead in the first on a double by Hess to begin the game and Daryle Reichard’s single.

The Brunswick Railroaders Little League All-Star team put it all together again last night walloped the National Little League All-Stars, 11-2, clinching the District II championship. Brunswick now moves into the state finals which are being held next Thursday, Friday and Saturday at Brunswick. Brunswick will play its first state tourney game at 2 p.m. Thursday against the winner of District III from Baltimore. It was a combination of tough pitching and heavy hitting for the Brunswick stars as Larry Zientek, who pitched a no-hit, 10—0 victory over East Frederick Monday, came back for the win last night. Zientek was almost as good last night as he allowed only four hits while fanning nine National batters. He walked three. Jimmy Hammond, the first of two National hurlers, took the loss as he allowed eight hits and seven runs, only four earned in three and one-third innings. Ronnie Ford went the last two and two-thirds innings, giving up four runs on four hits. Both squads registered goose eggs in the first frame but the visitors from Brunswick tore the game apart in the second inning as they pounded out five runs on six hits. Randy Fowler, who was two for three on the night, led off the second with a single and moved to second on an error by the centerfielder. Greg Loy, 2-4, followed with another single and reached second on an error by the second baseman for the National stars. Kevin Gordon, the big gun for Brunswick, who was 3-3 at the plate, followed with the third consecutive single plating Fowler. George Lowery, 2-3, followed with a double driving in Loy and Gordon. With one out, Zientek singled driving in Lowery and the pitcher scored later when Kenny Pearl, the hero of Wednesday and Thursday's game with the American all-stars singled. Brunswick kept pouring it on and added two more in the third as Fowler reached on an error at short and rode home on Gordon’s home run blast over centerfield fence. The Railroaders picked up another three runs the next inning when Dave Webber doubled with two out. Fowler drew a walk and Loy then smacked a single driving in Webber. Fowler and Loy tallied when Gordon lashed another single. The visitors topped the scoring off in the final inning when Fowler smashed a four-bagger over the centerfield fence. The National All-Stars tried to make a comeback in the bottom of the fifth inning as Robin Reeder reached on an error at short and took second on a bad throw. Randy Sink, who substituted for Bill Hess, then singled Reeder home with the first run. Sink took third on the throw to the plate and scored later on an infield out. Hall got the only extra base hit for the National All-Stars, a double in the fifth inning; but he was out trying to stretch it to a triple. Hess and Hammond had the only other National hits.

National Loses
Sykesville scored four runs with two out in the top of the sixth as they beat the Frederick National 4-1 in Little League playoff action last night. Sykesville will meet Thurmont Wednesday in a second round game. The National's Billy Hess had been pitching a two hit shutout and leading 1-0 into the inning, but Wayne Whittaker and Tom Gilbert led off with singles. Hess got Brian Rains to hit into a force play at third but a wild pitch put runnesr on second and third. Hess fanned Billy Schmidt for the second out. John Cassidy then hit a bouncher to short and it looked like the game was over. But Rains, who was at second, beat the shortstop to the bag in a close foot race and Gilbert scored to make it 1-1. Hess then walked Don Pressimone and John Franklin hit a grounder through the center of the infield. The outfielder let the ball get by him and three runs scored to make it -1-1. Hess finally got Anton Kriss to ground out to end the inning. Gilbert, who went the distance for Sykesville, took matters in his own hands in the bottom of the inning as he got Dale Houck to ground out back to the pitcher and struck out the next two men. The fast baller had 14 strikeouts for the day and three times fanned the side. Frederick only got to him in the second inning when Ron Ford singled, for one of the three Frederick hits, went to second on a fielder's choice, third on a wild pitch and then scored on a sacrifice fly by Hess. The Nationals had another chance to score in the fifth when Hess singled and stole second with none out. But on a ground ball to short Hess ran into the infielder and was out for interference. In the fourth inning Tom Gilbert walked and went to second on a passed ball. Rains then sliced a single to right, but outfielder Ron Ford made a perfect throw to the plate to cut down Gilbert trying to score.

District Round:
Frederick National vs Sykesville lost 4-1

BRUNSWICK CONTINUED ITS domination of area Little League play winning not only the district, but the state title. They were gaining a reputation as the New York Yankees of Little League play. Brunswick had a tough time in its district opener beating East Frederick 4-3 on a three-hitter by Britt Orrison who also hit a home run. Meanwhile, Thurmont downed Emmitsburg 6-0 as Tommy Eyler pitched a one-hitter, that hit coming in the sixth inning. The two city teams split Frederick American beat Westminster 8-4 as Don Hammond pitched out of a bases loaded jam in the sixth and Sykesville dropped the Nationals 4-1, scoring all its runs with two out in the top of the sixth. In second round play, Brunswick beat the Americans 5-2 on a two hitter by Kendall Gordon. Randy Fowler hit a grand-slam home run for the winners. Meanwhile, a late Thurmont rally fell short as the county team lost to Sykesville 6-4. Thurmont, which had been held to one run and one hit over the first five innings, scored three times in the sixth. Craig Simons' two-run double in the fifth gave Brunswick another district title as the county team beat Sykesville 3-2. Orrison gained the win in relief. Brunswick opened state play in Baltimore with a 7-3 win over Elkton. Orrison allowed only seven hits and Brunswick hit three home runs: a three-run shot by Terry Darr and solo homers by Gordon and Simons. In the second game, Gordon pitched a two-hitter and fanned 14 as Brunswick blanked Hagerstown 4-0. Keith Reynolds hit a home run for the county team. Brunswick and Salisbury then met for the state title and it was no contest. Brunswick easily won 11-2 as Orrison tossed four innings of one hit ball in relief and added a three-run homer. Randy Cooper. Gordon and Fowler also hit home runs as the county team had an easier time in the state than it did in the districts. The hero of the state tournament was Simons who got on base all ten times he went to the plate. He had seven hits. Counting the district title game against Sykesville, he was on base 13 straight times which must be some kind of a record. The Mid-Atlantic Regionals were in Hagerstown and Brunswick apparently didn't like playing so close to home. The county team fell to Delaware 3-1 in first round play. Brunswick's only hit was a solo home run by Gordon. Orrison lost a three-hitter.

Instead all 11 state champions in the eastern region will play in the Regional Tournament in East Chester, New York. Last year Brunswick won the state title. The tournament begins July 27 with the National League at American, Emmitsburg at Thurmont, and Brunswick at Sykesville. East Frederick drew a bye.

National Win
Frederick National League all-star pitcher Bobby Schantz  pitched a five - hitter and aided his cause with a fourth inning lead-off home run, as the local Little Leaguers defeated Thurmont 7-1 at Staley Stadium Wednesday night in district play. The Nationals now meet Brunswick, 2-1 winner over East Frederick, Friday at Brunswick. The Nationals lost the toss for home team position in their own  park, but after that initial set back, they remained in complete control of their destinies with a  seven hit attack that included  fourth  inning one run home runs by both Schantz and power- hitter Steve Stone. Stone’s home run was his second thus far in the Little League tournament, a blast over the left - field fence. Thurmont's Kevin Long had the only other extra - base hit for the night, a fifth - inning double. While his teammates were pounding away at Thurmont pitching, pitcher Schantz held the opponents to one run on five hits striking out eight and walking  only two batters. Thurmont’s only run came off of a fourth-inning home run by pitcher-first baseman Jeff Clem. Clem pitched 2 2/3 innings giving up five runs on three hits, while walking six and striking out four. First baseman Mike Phebus relieved Clem for 1 1/3 innings, walking one and giving up two runs on two hits. Bob Miller finished, giving up only two hits and keeping National scoreless for the last two innings. Both Schantz and Thurmont's Terry Eyler had two for three nights.

They even managed to perform that rarity of Little League Ball, a double play, in the third inning. In that inning, with a man on first and one out, the Nationals maneuvered a 6-4-3 (Comer to Dale Poole to Zack Jackson) double play.
