High Point College victors Over Francis Marion 7-3 wednesday has a Chance to wrap up the championship today but a slip will put the panthers in three games without a break and maybe Force the deciding game into Friday. Today a i . Contest sent Burke Suter of pc against Ronnie Rudd of Pembroke. Pembroke beat West Liberty state yesterday 7-1 and later Francis Marion eliminated the Hill toppers 9-3. If High Point wins the Early game it will play again at 7 against the Winner of the 4 o clock game. A win there would end it. A loss however would put the panthers in the Middle game and the possibility of playing three times in one Day. A a in be now decided that that a too Many games to be played in one Day High Point coach Chuck Hartman remarked. A it sounded Good to be Able to get the tournament Over in a hurry but there a a catch to the reason for the tight schedule is partly due to the minor league team which has games scheduled at night in the Park. Another part of the catch is that High Point must beat rival Pembroke a team it has battled several years on pretty even terms. The Only time the two teams have met in area play was in 1972 when pc won and went to the National naia tournament. With Ron Norman out of the Way after pitching yesterday the panthers face another Tufty in Rudd a junk Ball Pitcher. A Rudd is a lot like Mike Osborne of Elon a Hartman said. A we have trouble with him. And he shut us out last year. He a a nibbler. Pembroke does a lot of things i done to like. They run a lot and play Heads up baseball. A you talk about important games. This one is the biggest of the year. We have to get after them. We can to play like we did against Francis Marion. We weren to mentally prepared. We just had More Talent than they the panthers got behind the other team Early in the morning when a local Motel told them it provide food for the players. So it was Bacon and eggs at 9 a in. And infield practice at 9 30, not the proper Way to Start 4 Otis Foster belts Home run the Day with a game coming up at to. It Wasny to until the fifth inning that pc went ahead to stay. Otis Foster hit his 15th Home run of the season Over the left Field Wall 340 feet away with Charlie Burrell on base. Francis Marion had taken a 3-2 Lead in the top of the fourth against starter Roger Ausley on two singles a stolen base and a fielders Choice. The patriots got All six of their hits in the third and fourth five off Ausley. Randy Lambert greeted reliever Billy Sorrell with an infield hit to score Willie Bell with the go ahead and run but Sorrell closed the door. He retired the last 17 batters he faced and notched his seventh win with not much Energy spent. A Sorrell threw the equivalent of three or four Billy Sorrell another win innings so he can come Back again a Hartman said. A the might be Able to pitch a Complete game. But he can to pitch any better than he did in Relief. He did no to throw too Many fast balls so maybe he a still ready. But if we can get a Complete game out of Suter Well be in Good been slated to pitch the third game of the series. That Job May now fall to Delvin idol or Lew Lyon. A i did no to have any idea id be pitching Sorrell said. A i done to mind relieving though. I think i May have an advantage going in because the batters have been used to looking at another High Point has the Best record in the tournament at 30-8. Pembroke is now 21-14, Francis Marion 22-13 and West Liberty finished at 16-9. The panthers broke first when Bob Worthington singled in Danny Goins in the first.
