Cordeiro, Loser's Ace, Kayoed In 3d Inning
Behind the nifty six-hit pitching of Lefty Bill Parenteau, St. Raphael Academy mauled favored Colt Memorial, 13-0, in an Eastern Division encounter at Bristol.
The Saints slammed three Colt pitchers for 10 hits and 20 bases, handing Dick Cordeiro, classy Colt hurler, his second league loss in three years of competition.
The Saints opened the scoring when George Agostini reached on a fielder's choice and came home on George Lovett's blast into center field.
Saints Get Six In Third
In the third St. Raphael came up with six runs and chased Cordeiro from the mound. With one out Agostini and Bill Kennedy singled and Lovett walked to load the bases. Chet Hanewich grounded to George Garvin at short but Garvin's throw to the plate was too late to get Agostini.
Ralph D'Ambra walked to force in Kennedy and Cordeiro wild pitched Lovett home with the third run. Jesse Perry then took over for Cordeiro.
Johnny Higgins squeezed Hanewich home on Perry's first pitch and Joe Dragon singled D'Ambra across the plate. Dragon took third on Parenteau's single and then stole home.
In the fifth Higgins singled, stole second and scored on Dragon's third successive hit. An error and doubles by Agostini, Lovett and Hanewich gave the Saints three more in the eight. A walk to Dragon and singles by Agostini and Kennedy wound up the St. Raphael scoring with two runs in the ninth.
Four Hits For Agostini
Agostini led the Saints with four hits in six times at bat, three single and a double. Dragon, filling in for the injured Ray Killeen at third, banged out three singles and knocked in three runs.
In the final inning Coach Artie Panza of Colt cleaned off his bench and boosted the total number of Colt players in the game to 19.
