Then Cartwright Carpets used just as hour and three min- utes to hand the Ironworkers their fifth straight defeat, 3-5, in the nightcap. It was home run night at Ellis as four balls cleared the fence in left or left-center, three of them in the Eastside Maidrite win. Gary Wheeler and Tom Gad- die had homers for the winners while Dan Dalziel belted one out in the third for the only Pazour run. Otherwise, the losers were shutout on four hits, two of them in the infield, by Mike Lamphier and Dennis Drahozal. Denny Dotzler was the hitting star, however, as he went 3-for- 4, and Denny Ferch and Lam- phier both went 2-for-3 for Maid- j rite. The only other hit off Tharp was a leadoff single by Ron Findley in the seventh, but he was cut down on a game-end- ing double play. Rod Meii'ord provided what proved to be the game's winning run as both he and Steichen wound up with two hits in three trips. Steichen singled to open the fourth and stole second. With two out, Mefford singled him to break a scoreless deadlock.
