run into the playground. Stunned but still with competitive spirit, Sun Valley glowed slightly with two runs in the third. Matt Manzi reached safely on an error and Woodring zipped a single up-themiddle. After Manzi and Woodring pulled off a double steal, Cerchio

brought them both home with a single to left.

Factor and Scher both singled for the Road crew in the fourth, then Joe Walsh ripped an RBI single to left, making the score 14-2. Sun Valley matched that run in the bottom of the inning when Pellino singled and later scored on Woodring's sacrifice fly.

The Factor factor came into play once again in the fifth. LaMastra doubled off the left field screen and Culinane walked. Weber wiggled a single up-the-middle to load the bases. Eric Birnbaum tapped an RBI single to center and Johnson lofted an RBI sacrifice fly to right-center. Factor approached the plate then pounded a three-run homer off the building in deep left.

Reeling, Sun Valley failed to have a batter reach base for the remainder of the game. With mercy, Russell Road also did not score.

With gallantry St. Paul stormed back to tie the score in the bottom of the fourth. Bob Elmi and Wes Chase both singled. After Nadolny's looper to left was splendidly snagged by shortstop Marchelitis, Gerry Spitzer lined out to Marchelitis for the second out. Engleman stepped to the plate and hacked an RBI single over third, but the ball was mishandled in left and both Chase and Engleman also sped home to score.

The battle was on. Howie Jones tomahawked a single over third for St. Joseph in the fifth then darted to second on a fielder's choice. Matuska drilled a single to left and Jones zipped around third and safely dove face-first into home to give St. Joseph a one-run lead.

St. Paul attempted to make things work in its half of the inning with singles from Mirto and Hayeck and a walk from Kucin but the plate was unscuffed. St. Joseph did, however, extend its lead to 5-3 in the sixth when Marchelitis reached base on a force play, DiFrancesco slapped a single to right and Rothenberg's grounder to first permitted Marchelitis to score.

Pitching prevailed as St. Paul went down in order in the sixth and St. Joseph was held scoreless despite singles from Jones and Pepe. Spitzer singled for St. Paul in the bottom of the seventh; however, Matuska's pitching savvy held up to secure the win.
