KOOTENAY INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE

(July 13)   Frank Lister doubled in Scotty Notman with the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday in an exciting 10-9 victory for Nelson over Metaline Falls. With two out and Notman on second with a single and Addie Scanlan on first via a free pass, Lister smacked one over the left field fence for two bases to delight a big home crowd. Nelson had fallen behind 4-1 after two innings and trailed 9-4 going into the fifth. In the second, the visitors erupted for four runs helped by four errors and Collins two-run double. They added a pair in the third with Collins' triple the key blow. After Nelson rebounded with three runs in their half of the third as Langill cracked a homer, Metaline Falls got three more in the fourth, one on Rogers' single and two when Collins connected for another three-bagger. A two-run homer by Blair brought Nelson to within three runs and they tallied a singleton in the seventh as Langill tripled and came home on a single by Blair. With two in the eighth on an error and Blair's triple Nelson tied the visitors at 9-9 setting the stage for Lister's heroics. First baseman Langill led the winners with five hits and four runs. Blair had three. Collins and Robinson rapped four apiece for Metaline Falls.  Scanlan yielded nine hits in going the distance for the win.
