10-Alflona lo.) Upper Dei Molnsi Thimdoy, June 29, 1967 Becker Hurls GHS To 4-3 W-B Win Garrigan, 7-0 victor over West Bend a week earlier here, repeated the win, but by a very narrow 4-3 margin there Monday night. The victory upped the Golden Bears' season mark- to 5-4 — and came as a result of a pair of 2-run innings early in the contest. Coach Steve McCall's club was slated to travel to Mason City for a meeting with the Mohawks Wednesday, then will go to Fort Dodge for a game with St. E3- mond Friday and to Cylinder Monday where the Bears will tangle with Emmetsburg. Actually, the Garrigan-West Bead fame was well-pitched ail the way, via Joe Becker of the Bears besting the Bulldogs, a club he tossed a no-hitter against Jase 19. Ai Blair, loser of the earlier meeting, was also the loser in this one.

Bulldogs Tied Despite No-Hitter By Huriers High School's unblemished baseball record of 10 straight victories this season went by the boards (at least temporarily) Monday at Iowa Falls when the locals and the Cadets battled to a 1-1 tie in 10 innings in a fray that had to be called at that point due to darkness. The game will not be completed—unless its outcome has a bearing on the final North Central Conference standings, which Algona tops at the present time with a 7-0-1 record. Coach Keith Christie's club was slated to travel to Eagle Grove Wednesday and to Clear Lake Friday, then will host Hampton here Monday in another trio of loop frays. Length of the contest at Iowa Falls was not the only item that made it an oddity. Perhaps more outstanding was the fact that Craig Espe, who has fired six no-hitters in his last two seasons, did it again for nine innings and Dale Pedersen didn't allow a hit In the tenth, so the Iowa Falls bats were silenced all the way. The Cadef s lone counter came in the home half of the fourth when Espe hit Bach and walked Dittmer, with the latter scoring on an infield tap. Algona scored first - getting its run in the first go-around at the plate — then saw nine goose eggs tacked up in a row. Espe walked to start the game and later scored after a bingle by Tom Claude. Rog Meyer sent the run home with a fly to left. Strikeouts came fast in this one, with Iowa Falls hurling chalking up 21 Bulldogs and Espe getting 18 Cadets in his nine frames. He allowed two walks and Pedersen one. The Bulldogs chalked up a double play in the last of the tenth. Claude and Pedersen got Algona's two hits - both singles.

The loss left LuVerne with a 3-2 loop mark and 3-4 season mark. The Lions out-hit the winners, 10-fl, with Denny Hanselman going 4-for-4 at the plate. Barber got a pair of blows and Hansen, Nelson, Trauger and Selby one each. Doug Nelson hurled the first five frames for LuVerne, with Hansen finishing and taking the loss. Weber went all the way on the hill for Sheffield. Sheffield counted two runs in the fourth, two in the sixth, one in the eighth and three in the ninth, while the Lions scored two in the first, one in the sixth, one in the seventh and one in the eighth.
