Jon Petrunia, whose control problems sent him to an early shower in his last two starts, found the range and went the distance on the mound for the locals. Meanwhile, Greg Hamilton forgot about the fences and met the ball for three singles to drive in four Miner runs. New sporting a 4-4 season record, the Miners will host the league-leading Acme Pirates for a doubleheader Sunday at Henderson Park. The locals, who split a doubleheader in Acme earlier this year, will be attempting to push their record over the .500 mark for the first time this season. In Friday's contest, Petrunia was outstanding most of the way, although he got in trouble twice, loading I f eel it UNIROYAL STEEL BELTED RADIALS Jni says: 'You can actually feel the difference.. jetween Uniroyal Steel Belted Hadials and regular bias-ply tires."

In the third inning, he walked in two runs before retiring the last batter, but coach Doug Frier stuck with him and he went on to strike out 13 Highwood batters in the nine innings. "Jon needed this said Frier. "He's been having some control problems and he tended to let up and throw easy ones when he got in trouble." "But tonight, I stuck with him and he just got stronger as the game went on." Meanwhile, Hamilton's first hit of the game drove in two runs and sparked a four-run fourth inning which put the Miners ahead to stay. Jim McLellan added three singles while Dennis Hatt belted a double off Highwood pitchers Craig Handle and Mark Lomenda. Lomenda struck out nine Junior Miners in four innings of relief throwing, but the locals still tagged him for seven runs and 11 hits. The Miners could move into first place with a pair of wins Sunday, but coach Frier warns that the Pirates have quite a ballclub. "They can really he says. "And not just one or two of them either." "They're all farm boys, and they just stand in there and swing away." However, pitching similar to Petrunia "s effort last night should give the Pirate swingers something to think about. Fier expects to start either Allan Korth or Stu Dow in the p.m. opener. The mound assignment for the nightcap will depend on the outcome of the afternoon game. Fly Balls Over 100 fans were out to enjoy the baseball and the beautiful weather Frier was able to use almost all of his players once the Miners broke the contest open Sparks flew in the eighth inning when Highwood catcher Roy Widney gave Brian Veres a solid jolt as he crossed home plate Veres was ejected from the contest. fortunately for the Miners, the issue was no longer in doubt at that time.
