Elon Keeps Lead
Throughout Game
Overcoming a first inning onslaught
of 3 runs by their opponents from
Ohio, the Elon Christians rapped out
four of their own in the first inning
and went on to win the season’s open
er by a 12-8 score. The visitors dis
played a hard hitting ball club, which
slugged out 10 hits, but Elon connect
ed for nine of their own and added
some fancy base running to lead from
the first inning on.
Three :nitchers were on the hill for
Elon and showed signs of better
things to come, although all weakevied
momentarily. Frank Roberts twi'-led
the first three innings, C. K. Siler
the middle trio, and “Old Bobo” And
erson finished up. Siler racked up a
pair of strike out victims, while And
erson also whiffed two.
Big gun at the plate for Elon was
outfielder Gene Caviness, who slam
med out three hits in four trips, in
cluding a long double. Dick York also
banged out two bingles, while Steve
Walker, Ed Ellis, Sonny Griggs, ami
Lou Savini also had hits. These added
up with a variety of walks, had the
sacks cluttered most of the time and
had three Akron pitchrs in difficulty
throughout. B. Stadvec, the last of
the three Ohioans from the rubber
city to toe the hill, displayed the most
stuff and in addition blasted a long
home run over the left field wall.
