He got another great play from right fielder Craig Taylor in the sixth inning and from then on it was smooth sailing. Espe had a no-hitter for five innings but a walk and Clear Lake's first hit caused minor trouble in the sixth before Taylor threw out the runner at third on the hit. Espe gave up another single in the seventh but he never got past first. ALGONA scored its run in the second inning. Rog Meyer led off the inning with a single and moved to third on Taylor's single. These were the only Algona hits of the game. Dale Pedersen struck out but Bob Farnham rapped the ball to the first baseman and Meyer raced home with the only run of the game on the fielder's choice.
