(May 10)   18-year-old Dave Emery had a sensational start to the new season Saturday firing a six-inning no-hitter as Wakeman & Trimble crushed Pearce Electric 17-0 in the second game of the season opening double-header. Eagles shaded the Navy Vets 5-4 in the first game. Emery fanned five and walked two in the abbreviated contest. The right-hander thought he had lost his no-hit bid in the fifth inning when Pearce shortstop Hal Jacobson lined one to left field for what appeared to be a double. But, Jacobson failed to touch first base and was called out. The winners managed to score in double digits in spite of collecting just four hits. Pearce made it wasy for Wakeman & Trimble booting the ball ten times while Des Moseley and George Holt combined for 13 walks.

Eagles came from behind with two runs in the eighth inning to shade the Vets. Art Worth reached on an outfield error, Barry Harvey smacked a two bagger and Stu Mitchell followed with a single.. Gary Lawrence, another 18-year-old, scattered eight hits for the pitching win. Bill Garner, who allowed just six, took the loss. Mike Hodge belted an inside-the-park homer for the Vets.
