ON THIS DATE
April 9, 1965 Charlie Keer collects two hits - one a triple, knocks in three runs, and scores twice to help Marian open its season with a 15-3 win over Freeland MMI. The Colts, coached by Jim Kroculik, also receive two hits and two runs from Francis Flaim. Denny Boyle and Bill Sakusky each finish with an extra-base hit, two runs, and two RBIs. The offensive support is more than enough for Joe Simcik, who earns the pitching win. Simcik, who finishes with a five-hitter, walks two and strikes out nine.
