Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - May 14, 1963, Bennington, Vermont 8-Bennington Banner tuesday May 14, 1963 cats win f. Tag Drury with 7-1 defeat Sharp Relief by Ordway by Charles j. Read or. A balanced pitching and batting show at alumni Field yesterday led Bennington High school to their fourth consecutive win at the expense of Drury High school of North Adams mass., 7-1. The Bay states were never in the game after the third inning and despite an injury to the throwing hand of starting Beni Pitcher Steve Hilchey Dave Ordway was Able to Cool the bats of Drury. The catamounts compiled eight hits and most of them were solid blows which led to or produced scoring. Beni jumped to a two run Lead in the first inning As Lead off Batter Bui Hickok smashed a single to left Field Dave Ordway reached on an Outfield error Hickok scored on a wild pitch and Bob Babson beat out a perfect bunt to the Pitcher. Brad Stevens then brought in Ordway with a neatly executed suicide squeeze bunt and the cats were just beginning. Drury picked up a run in the top of the third Frame on a walk a single and a passed Ball to make the game close. It was on the passed Ball that Hilchey was injured and forced to leave the game although he later returned to play third base. Hilch covered the plate on the passed Ball and the Quick recovery by Catcher John Burgess had the runner naked at the plate. Hilch put the tag pm the runner but dropped the Ball when spiked Between the Index and Middle Finger of his right hand. Ordway came in and fanned the next Batter to retire the Side. The smallish Southpaw handcuffed Drury the rest of the Way with a variety of knuckle balls and slow curves quite a contrast to Hilchey a fast stuff Beni meanwhile added another tally in the last of the third on a Long triple to right Center Field by Babson followed by a single by Stevens. In the fourth the cats wrapped it up with four big runs on three hits including a double by Ordway which drove in two runs. Coach Don Ziter in his first year coaching at Bennington High school learns quickly As he took advantage of the National federation Rule to replace Hilchey at third base after putting him on the Bench following the injury. This same Rule popped up in the Brattleboro game when colonel coach Andy Natovich replaced a Catcher he had benched earlier. At that time Ziter believed they were playing under Vermont federation rules which do not allow the return of a player taken out. Also Ziter has been making frequent use of the suicide squeeze bunt after Adams High school nearly drove the cats crazy with the play in the 11-inning tie several weeks ago. With most High school batteries the play can work almost every time and often the confusion of the defensive team is such that the Batter will also reach first. Beni goes again tomorrow at alumni Field hosting Burr and Burton. Aem Ember Voe get double triple "8&Quot Blee Stamps every wednesday at Gram Union Empire n. Minimum Purchase necessary Don t Stop now Doug Welkin of Beni is about to blast around third base against Drury yesterday at alumni Field and score the fifth cat run.
