Lutherans Schmidt Tosses No-Hitter at Bulldogs, 7-0 By JIM EAKLE tribune Sport. Writer Pitching is the name of the game; just ask the Universily High Bulldogs. 'Saturday, in (lie state AA quarte'rfihal game at UNC's Jackson Field, Denver Lutheran's John Schmidt tossed a no- hitter against the Bulldogs beating . them 7-0, to advance his teammates into the state semifinals next Saturday. The big righthander, who recently inked a letter of intent to Colorado University, set down the Bulldogs one after another. His teammates committed three errors and he walked five to allow the only baserunners. He was backed by the hitting of centerfielder Phil Church who rapped two singles, driving in one run. Another big hit. was John Sroerich's triple in the first inning lhat eventually became -the first run for the Lights. Many Errors The game was a sloppy one in that many mental and physica: errors were committed, most by the Bulldogs. All-in-all Univer- sily High hobbled five chances giving Ihe Lights two unearnec runs. It seemed as though both teams were suffering from jitters early in the game and il was only Lutheran that seltlec down. Universily High's Tony Forrest came Ihe closest to breaking Schmidt's no-hitler. In the fourth inning he hil a lough ground ball lo second base tha was picked up and thrown to first. The throw went by Light first baseman John Aurich but it looked like Forrest might have beaten il out for a hit. After thinking about the situation, the scorers ruled that Forest wouldn't have beaten the ball out and gave an error to the second baseman. The Dogs about spoiled the no-hit, no-run game again in the last stanza when they gol two runners on base via Iwo walks. They advanced lo second and third on a passed ball before University High's Rich Frick hil a sharp ground ball up the middle that looked lo be a hit. Lights' shorlslop Dave Smith came from nowhere to snare the ball and loss lo first for the final out of Ihe game. In Ihe entire game, not one 0 ' iveness of Schmidt's pitching. Schmidt showed a ctuick-break- ng curve and a "zippy" fastball hat he was throwing by the University High batters. He dominated the game from the outset. Threat in Hirst College High had a threat in ners'got on base via errors and one walked. The rally was snuffed out when Bob Shirley fanned, ending the threat. The Lights pushed across three runs in the second for scored on Sroerich's sacrifice their biggest single output of the day. Sid Germeroth walked and stole second. One batter flew out before Church hit a single driving in Germeroth. Smith then walked and both runners advanced on Stan Luke- .he first inning when two run- tich's wild pitch. UHS mentor Ben Hix signaled for an intentional walk to leadoff hitter fly. In the entire game, there were, seven stolen bases, all against University High. Also aiding the Light cause three passed balls by Bulldog catcher Foster. Luketich was effective at times as he struck out five and only allowed five hits, but his wildness, coupled with his team- Dennis Zachman. While in the mates errors, spelled defeat process, Luketich threw another right .from the start. He walked wild pilch scoring Church. Smith eight Lutheran baiters. CLOSE PLAY -- Denver Lutheran's Mark Keipper bears down on first base as University High's Bob Shirley prepares to make Ihe calch of Mike Stoffler's throw. Keipper wins for a base hit in the fifth innning of Saturday's Stale AA baseball play- off game at Jackson Field. Stoffler had to go in quickly on a slow bounder. Pitcher Stan Luketich falls out of Stoffler's way. Lutheran won 7-0 on John Schmidt's no- hit pilching.

Belmonl and general manager Don Ringsby once indicaled Ihey weren't too concerned aboul signing new talent because they didn't Ihink there would be many spots available. "I've definitely changed my mind on lhat," Belmont said. And although neither Belmonl nor Ringsby hinted at possible trades, there were indications some were being considered. Rockets' star Larry Jones, who owns Ihe league's scoring mark in career play, earlier was rumored lo be prime trading material after on-and-off performances during Ihe season. Jones' play during the final game drew some commenl from Belmont. "We've got. to have Larry shooting in order lo win," Belmont said.
