Upper Des Moines Thursday, July 6, 1967 Bears Even Mark With 8-0 Emmetsburg Victory A nine-lilt wast ;ind the iotir- hit pitching ol John Winkel pushed Garrigan's Golden Bears to an easy, 8-0 victory ovor Emmetsburg at Cylinder Monday night. The win gave the loc.ils an even break in 12 games so far. Coach Steve McCall's club took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first as Winkel singled and scored on a triple by Jack Muller. Two more runs were added in the third as Joe Becker belted a home run and Muller scored on a pair of E-Hawk errors. Another singleton crossed the plate in the sixth, with O'Brien getting the lone hit and McGuire scoring the run, and five blows sent home another four counters in the top of the seventh. Nugent walked, Winkel singled, Becker followed will i another one-baser, Muller then banged one, Mertz was hit by a pitch and O'Brien singled. Meanwhile, Winkel didn't allow many threats. The E- Hawks got a man to third in the third inning and a runner to second in the fifth, but never got more than one hit in any inning, and all four blows were singles. He struck out nine and didn't issue a walk.

The Bulldogs are now 12-1-1. Hampton threatened in the first and second innings, but both times the Algona defense put out the fire. However, misery loomed ahead for the Bulldogs and pitcher Dale Pedersen. It started with two clean hits and a hit batsman.

Five more hits, including a hard-to-beat bunt, and two unfortunate errors by Bulldog defenders helped Hampton's cause. Meanwhile, with the eighth Hampton run across the plate, Dave Roeber relieved Pedersen on the mound. Hampton conked Roeber for two more runs before Lukensmeyer flied out to Claude to end the catastrophe. Algona rallied in its half of the third. Craig Espe, who came in to pitcli the last inning, went to first on a walk, Tom Claude singled and Roger Meyer, Algona's phenomenal all-round hustler, banged out a long home run to right center field. Claude's second bingle of the night scored Roeber to lift Algona's run total to four and Meyer made it five with his single that scored Hagen in the fourth inning. Hampton came close to adding more runs in the fifth inning, but second baseman Claude leaped high to grab a line drive which ended what looked like another rally. After three straight strikeouts in a fast fifth frame, the Bulldogs collecled three more futile runs in the sixth. Hagen made it to first base on one of Hampton's two errors of the night and Espe and Claude each drew walks to set the stage for another Meyer special. This time, he punched out a driving triple to left field. Three more RBI's, but the Bulldogs got no more. Hampton pitcher Bob Paten whiffed 13 Algona batters and walked only two. Algona pitchers walked four, struck out eight, and gave up 11 hits. Bulldog fielders miscued on four occasions while Hampton slipped up only twice. Meyer had seven RBI's and a homer and a triple in his three- hit production.

The victories over the Lions and Eagles were repeats of Mins over the same clubs earlier in the season - AXD BY IDENTICAL SCORES! Craig Espe ran his record for the 1967 season to 9-0 with the win at Clear Lake. He is also unbeaten during the past two seasons (lie was 15-0 in 1966) and won his last three in 1965, so the little lefty now has won 27 STRAIGHT! Dale Pedersen got the victory at Eagle Grove. The locals were slated to travel to LuVerne for a non-conference fray last night (Wednesday) and will host Webster City in a pair of 5-inning loop contests here Friday evening.

However, twice within a three- day period recently at theAlgona Country Club, two local golfers have managed to sink Ihe longest putt of all - a shot off the tee. Latest to turn the trick was Frank Moulton, who banged one into the hole Thursday with a seven iron. According to observers, his shot landed on the green four feet in front of the pin and bounced one time into the cup. It was Monday, June 26, when a well-known Algona dentist, Dr. Karl Hoffman, turned the same trick on the same green with a five iron. Both men have played many, many rounds of golf here and elsewhere and their perfect shots will always remain the highlight of their golfing careers. Mr. Moulton is owner and operator of Bjustrom Furniture here. As a result of their efforts, both will receive 52 cases of Pepsi-Cola. There are also olher awards available for such a feat. Others who have registered holes in one here down through the years (and we may have forgotten some) include D. P. Smith, Dick Cowan, and Harold Lauber (who turned the trick quile a few years ago on number eighl). All olhers have been on number four. The most recent efforts by Moulton and Hoffman mark the first time more than one hole-in- one has been regislered in one season. Schattschneider Sweeps Mid-Season Stock Races Gene Schattschneider had his orange number 56 running beautifully Friday night as he copped everything in sight dur- inp Ihe Mid-Season Championship evenl. Schattschneider, who was third in points with 649 (Butch Householder was first with 705 and Del Stokey second with 687) prior to Friday, capped a fine night on Ihe quarler-mile layout with a roaring viclory in the feature after earlier taking the trophy dash and first heat. As a result of his showing, he wound up with both trophies awarded during the night by Miss. Algona, Kitty Hardgrove, and Sheri Baker, runner-up in the recent contest. Stokey wound up second and Denny Reuth, third, in the feature. Second heat winner was Carl VanderWaal, third heat went to Reuth and the semi-main to Earl Tice. All winners except Schattschneider are from the Ames area. Householder, who has had tough luck the last several times out, escaped uninjured when his car rolled on the number two turn during the feature. There were numerous spin-outs during the program. Dwight Cook, manager of the local track, said 1,500 persons attended the races Friday-and also announced an added attraction this Friday, a Demolition Derby.

LuVerne 11-5 Loop Winner Over Klemme LuVerne copped an 11-5 victory in North Star Conference baseball action at Klemme Friday night. The win upped the Lions' loop mark to 4-2 and season record to 4-4. Klemme counted three runs in the home half of the first and another pair in the bottom '.of the second off Barber and Selby, LuVerne's first two pitchers for the night. Then Rog Hanson took the hill and shut out the losers the rest of the day, gaining the win. LuVerne came back with one run in the third, five in the fourth, two each in the fifth and sixth and one in the seventh to win going away. Hanson notched a pair of triples and a double at the plate, while Lee Schipull, got a double and two singles, Selby a double, Hanselman and Stripling two hits each, and Will, Trauger and Dale Schipull one each in the 14-hit LuVerne attack. The losers got five hits. Twin Rivers Pirates Upset Bancroft, 2-0 The Twin Rivers Pirates won their fourth game in the last five outings Friday night at Livermore. They upset highly- regarded St. John's of Bancroft in a 2-0 fray which brought the Pirate record to 5-6 for the year. Steve Bergum went the distance for the Pirates on the mound, holding the Johnnies to two hits for the evening. Bergum's sacrifice bunt in the first inning brought in the winning run, Jim Collins, who singled and moved to third when Steve Brock slashed out a base knock moments later. The Pirates got their insurance run in the second inning on a ground ball that whipped through the St. John defense allowing Dale Frederick to score. The all- important slam was Mark Dale's. Frederick had been hit by Bancroft hurler Steve Vaske's wild pitch and gone to third on a fly ball and error. Late Rally Short, Bears Downed 7-4 St. Edmond of Ft. Dodge counted three runs each in the second and third and a singleton in the seventh despite the 15- strikeout pitching of Garrigan's John Winkel to down the Bears here Friday night. The loss was the sixth in 11 outings for the locals, who were slated to face Britt there last night (Wednesday). Coach Steve McCall's club will then hostBurt here at 8 p.m. Friday. A seventh inning rally, good for three runs as Don Courtney and Joe Becker singled, coupled with a walk and an error, tossed a scare at St. Edmond last Friday.
