Second Straight No-Hitter By Espe Gives AHS Victory Algona's Bulldogs and Twin Rivers moved into a big Sectional Baseball Tournament fray at Garrigan Field last night (Wednesday) with victories at separate sites Monday evening. The Bulldogs chalked up their 17th win against two losses and a tie, downing Corwith-Wesley, 5-0, behind the no-hit pitching of Craig Espe, while Twin Rivers got a two-hit job from Doug Logue and a 6-2 win over Rolfe. St. John's of Bancroft dumped Sentral at Bancroft, 22-0. Espe's ninth no-hitter (during the past two years) proved to be his second straight as he bested John and Jim Maw, Corwith-Wesley twins, on the hill. Algona managed only seven hits - and it took some loose fielding by the losers in the seventh inning to allow the charges of Coach Keith Christie to put the game out of reach with a 3-run rally without benefit of a hit. Actually, the way things turned out, Algona got the only run needed in the top of the first when Espe tripled and scored on an error. A hit later in the inning by Rog Meyer was wasted. The next Algona counter came In the top of the fourth. Craig Taylor singled and three errors later scored. That made it 2-0 until the seventh when a walk to BUI Boldridge started off a wild spree which was helped along by two errors, three stolen bases and a fielder's choice. Boldridge, Espe and Meyer scored the runs. Espe had four one-two-three innings, the first, second, sixth and seventh and allowed only one runner, Jim Maw, to reach second. That was in the third after a walk and ground out. He struck out 14 and walked just two, while the Bulldogs had 15 men whiff and two walk. Espe and Meyer each got a pair of Algona's hits.
