Page 8 I ; I DREW FIELD ECHtJES Friday, June 26th. 1942 DREW NINE TRIMS MacDILL, 5-3 Behind the one-hit pitching of Sgt. Carlos Moore, the Drew Field Interceptors put together one big inning to defeat the MacDill Flyers, 5 to 3, in the rubber game of their series at Plant Field last Saturday. The Drew slabman made the mistake of serving one up to the liking of his mound opponent, Wallis, who promptly slapped out a single for the Flyers' only h .it of the day. In one big inning, the first, the Interceptors scored five runs, a margin good enough to win the game. Meyer, leadoff man, was safe on an error by the shortstop and proceeded on to second on the overthrow. Grabosky s i Ii g I e d M:eyer to tl:\ird and moved on to second on the throw-in. Klimczak slapped out a long single to score Meyer and took second on the throw to the plate. Bekeza promptly sent both runners across the platter with a rifle shot over second. Todd tripled to the flagpole to scure Bekeza. Firkser singled Todd home with the fifth run of the inning. Wallis pitched superb bali in allowing the Drew nine three hits and no runs after the first inning. Todd of the Interceptors went deep into centerfield twice to pull down long fly balls for the fielding catches of the day. Leading the hitting for the Drew team were Klimczak, Todd, with two for four and Moore struck out nine men in pitching the one-hitter.
