Al Bass' Camden High tossers practically eliminated Coach Nello Dalollio's Vineland High outfit from whatever chance it had of capturing the Camden Suburban League baseball championship when they defeated the Cumberland county aggregation yesterday afternoon at Farnham Park by the score of 6 to 4.

This game wound up the schedules for both teams, with Vineland resting in third place with six wins out of nine starts, and Camden in fifth place with five out of nine. Woodbury, with still two games on its slate, is in first place with |Haddon Heights in the runner-up slot.

In another fracas, Haddon Heights easily defeated Millville at the latter's field, 13 to 4, to climb into undisputed possession of second place. One other game was played yesterday with Bridgeton winding up its campaign by taking the measure of Haddonfield at the latter's diamond by the score of 5 to 1. It was Bridgeton's third win of the season and the eighth straight defeat for the "Haddons."

Camden won out over Vineland by staging a two-run rally m the ninth inning with one down after the losers had gone ahead by tallying a single run in their half of the same round.

"Cappy" Roman started the ninth frame for Camden by working DiDomenico for a pass and went to second on DeServio's sacrifice. Boulton then lined a double to left-center to score Roman with the tieing run and came home with the winning marker on Martin's two-bagger.

For seven innings Camden trailed Vineland 3 to 0 but in the eighth it pushed across three runs to tie the score. Al Luzi hurled the major portion of the game for Camden and was rapped for an even dozen hits, fanning nine and walked three, while Martin fanned two in his 'brief stay on the hill. DiDomenico went the route for Vineland and also was touched for 12 blows. Chielli and Genther sparkled at the plate for Vineland with four and three hits respectively, while Bubien with three for four starred for Camden.
