WINONA, Minn. – Players Lounge jumped on a faltering Carl Aegler for four home runs and coasted to a 9-1 triumph over Club Midway of Fountain City in Sunday’s title game of the 1971 Winona Invitational Softball Tournament.

Aegler, starting his fifth game in sweltering heat, was greeted by Mankato’s Gary Lunz, who belted a homer deep over the left-field fence in the first inning. Then after a single by Les Dittrich, Jerry Flanagan clouted another round-tripper over the deepest part of the centerfield to make it 3-0.
