July 13, 1993|By Rich Scherr


* Over-30 men -- The Columbia Cardinals, who had seemed invincible at times while winning their first eight games in the Howard County Masters League this season, were finally defeated, falling to Bethany Water Sports, 15-6, Sunday at Rockburn Branch Park.

Lou Caracci provided the big spark for Bethany (7-1), giving up one run on three hits in his five innings on the mound, and going 4-for-5 at the plate, with a two-run homer and two-run double.

Other hitting stars for the defending Division A champions included Bill Kolarek (4-for-6), Dave Funk (4-for-5, two-run homer) and Dave Dale (three-run homer). Ed Berger picked up the save, helping his cause by going 3-for-5.

The Cardinals (8-1) were led offensively by Jay Hughes (2-for-3, triple, RBI), Bill Ray (two-run homer) and Tom O'Neill (two-run homer).

The Cardinals will try to rebound Sunday when they take on McAllister's Diamond Dogs at Cedar Lane Park.
