By Bill h Assen Pflug Brattleboro a baseball scrimmages can be funny. Not hah hah funny but Odd funny. Even though the contest does no to mean much to either team both squads Are out there trying their hardest. Such a game was played saturday by Bennington Catholic against the Brattleboro colonels for the sabers first encounter of the year. Bennington Catholic ended by being beaten 1-0 after nine hard innings of baseball but were really taken in the eighth inning by the Brattleboro coaches son Bill Natowich. The sabers who have been relying on their hitting Power for the past four or five years suddenly found themselves having to rely on the pitchers and the Fielding. Perhaps it was a Lack of practice by is has had just four outdoor practices this season because of the bad weather but then again it May be the fact the Green and Gold miss four big bats that were present pm the Tea in last year Bob Millington Brian ply Ano Tom King and Gerry Morrissey. Whatever it was Bennington Catholic looked like a Bunch of paper tigers at the plate. In the whole nine innings Bennington Catholic was limited to just two singles and was fanned 16 times by the opposing chucker Timmy Moore. Though the sabers found themselves depending on their pitching and Fielding not even the checkers could give them an awful lot of Hope. Brattleboro Only had three hits but Drew nine walks. Two of the colonels hits came from nato wich. One was really a Home run in the eighth inning As the Ball sailed Over the left Field Fence and the other which gave the Brattleboro squad the 1-0 Victory bounced Over the wire with the bases loaded in the ninth. Now comes another funny situation that would have been More hotly contested if the contest had been a regular game. When Natowich belted the Ball Over the left Field Fence in the eighth most believed it to be a Home run. But through an Umpire s mistake Natowich Only gained a triple out of the Deal. Apparently the ump had mistakenly told Saber coach Frank Bizzarro that anything Over the Fence was in play. And so after hot and heavy disagreement Natowich was sent Back to third. Brattleboro was not Long in retaliating however. In the ninth inning Bennington Catholic Pitcher Tom Moore got himself into trouble by loading the bases through three walks. With two outs All bags full and a 2-1 count on him Natowich blasted another pitch into left Field and the game was Over. Everything seemed to go wrong for Bennington Catho Lic saturday and the team did no to even sound much less look like some of the bal teams the sabers have put Ait in the past. One Man on the squad however did do his Job for As Long As he was in there. Chip Landry pitched some four and a half innings of Ball giving up no hits and walking two but was taken out in the fifth inning in favor of Tom Moore because coach Bizzarro wanted to see How the two compared. Moore a trouble on the Mound is More probably due to the fact that he had not practice pitching Frore a Mound at All this year. But whatever the trouble was Moore seemed to have lost a lot of the control that he had last season. Strangely enough the sabers old problem of errors in the Field did not seem to bother them at All. Bennington Catholic committed just one miscue during the entire game and that was in the third inning when Timmy Racicot Saber third baseman bobbled and lost a screaming line drive on the third base line. Racicot however put four men out on Fly balls and threw another out at first base during the rest of the game. The sabers begin their regular Western Vermont season tuesday in Rutland when they meet the it. St. Joseph Moun ties on the away Field. Maybe the scrimmage has got them More used to playing this year but if it Hasni to and their Power at the plate Hasni to improved any by tuesday then Bennington Catholic is going to have a rough time of it with Msj.
