The Chanclas had only eight hits combined in their first two games, including just two in a 1-0 loss Wednesday night.

Manager John McLaren made an adjustment, moving Porter Brown from second to first in the batting order. Conversely, he moved Thompson from the No. 1 hole to No. 2.

Both Brown and Thompson picked up two hits apiece. Kite McDonald and Lee Thomas also had a pair of hits for the Chanclas.
