Three timely hits produced eight runs for the Crimson Jayvee mind yesterday as Lloyd Harper's forces resumed their winning ways with an 8-4 victory over Newton on the losers' diamond.
A grand slam homer by Steve Howe sent four runs across in the second inning and these, added to the two that scored on Howe's first inning single, churched the game. Bucky Harrison punched a circuit blow in the eighth off Newton's second pitcher just for good measure.
Win for Davis
Roger Davis pitched the winners to their last win before the Yale finale Saturday with a seven-hit performance. He was in complete command except for a brief Newton uprising in the sixth which produced three runs. The home team added an unearned run in the seventh.
Hal Mofile, Fred Dunn, and Fred Glimp chimed in with extra base hits while Davis was fanning 13. The winners stranded 11 men on the base paths. Dunn and Howe led the Crimson at the plate with two hits apiece.
