Ecusta Still Trailing Enka
The big baseball news this month still centers
around the battle Enka and Ecusta are waging for
top honors in the WNC Industrial League. In
games through July 18, Enka held the command
ing position with a 12-1 record and Ecusta was
firmly settled in second place with a 9-3 won
and loss record.
Our only defeat of the month came at the
hands of Enka, 3-2, in a battle on the loop-leaders’
diamond Tuesday, July 13. Despite some rather
odd plays, our men held their own until the
ninth. In this fatal inning, with the rain coming
down in sheets, the Rayonites pushed across the

Machine Room Maintain Lead
Since the last edition of The Echo, the Ma
chine Room baseballers have suffered their first
defeats of the season, but still hold a big lead in
the league standings. Rain interrupted play on
several occasions and with these rained out games
to be played, the championship rests in doubt,
although with its lead. Machine Room will be
hard to beat.
After an extremely slow start, tUe defending
champions from Control have finally come to life
and are now tied with Generals for second place
in games through July 14. Both Control and
Generals have a slim mathematical chance to cop
the title. Control was the first team to beat Ma
chine Room, June 16, in a 19-18 slugfest. In
fact. Control has won its last four games in a row.
