Rebels vs. BFA Baseball 1974 - BFA Takes Advantage of Rebels, 9-6 9-6 9-6 By...
BFA Takes Advantage of Rebels, 9-6 9-6 9-6 By WALLY JOHNSON It was one of those afternoons at the South Burlington High baseball field Monday. Not only was the BFA-South BFA-South BFA-South Burlington game the first NIAC encounter to be struck by streakers, it was also one of those seesaw contests which South Burlington gave away with errors, 9-6. 9-6. 9-6. The win improved BFA's record to 4-5 4-5 4-5 and dropped South Burlington to 5-8. 5-8. 5-8. In order to qualify for tournament play, South Burlington now must win its final three games, two against CVU and one against Montpelier. BFA took a 1-0 1-0 1-0 lead off Kevin Rock in the second inning as Bill Leahy reached on an error, went to second on a fielder's choice and scored on Kevin Connolly's double off the fence. The count went to 4-0 4-0 4-0 in the fifth as Rock was touched for three more unearned runs. Doug Maynard singled, Bob Norris reached on an error and Leahy walked. Henri Langevin's grounder then was misplayed, with two runs scoring and Connolly hit a sacrifice fly for the third. Before the bottom of the fifth, along came the streakers, as two masked males jumped the fence in right, ran through the outfield and back into the woods in left. It livened things up among the fans, and South Burlington seemed to get its offense going after the interlude as it hit Norris for five runs in the fifth. Tim Breen's single and a walk to Bill Dewar started the rally and Brian Casey got it going in good fashion with a sinking liner to right which went for a triple when a shoestring catch bid failed. Mike Martineau then singled in a run and hits by Craig Ignazeswki and Dean McLellan brought in two more for a 5-4 5-4 5-4 Rebel lead. BFA came back for five more runs in the sixth on a series of errors, a two run single by Mark Mercure and a three run homer by Langevin. South Burlington added its final run in the sixth as Breen scored on John Garvey's single, but Norris worked out of a bases loaded jam in that inning and a two on situation in the seventh to gain the victory. BFA hosts Middlebury and South Burlington is at CVU today.
