Espe pitches Algona past Gaels here, 11-0 ' Algona high school moved a notch closer to the state summer high school baseball tournament Friday night by crushing {St, Edmond's of Fort Dodge, 11-0 at the Garrigan field in a first round district game. Craig Espe turned in still another brilliant one-hit performance with just two days rest and got l(Miit mates. support from his - Algona will now meet Mason City high school in the district finals AT GARRIGAN tonight (Monday) beginning at 8 p.m. The game had originally been tentatively set for Mason City's Roosevelt Field but a phono call early Saturday by Algona Coach Keith Christie got the game switched to the "neutral" Garrigan field. Two years ago, Mason City wiped the Bulldogs out in the district finals, 8-1 at Mason City. The Mohawks are 8-0 for the season this year and eliminated Greene in the first round district game Friday, 9-0. ESPE was in complete control from the start as he set the Gaels down with just one hit and struck out 14. He now has pitched 31 straight scoreless innings in the sectional and district tournament games and has a string of 38 scoreless innings dating back to the final regular season game with Forest City. The Bulldogs haven't been scored on in tournament play thus far. Espe has a season's record of 14-0 and Algona has an 18-2 mark. He also has an amazing 175 strike outs for the campaign. Algona will be playing without the services of regular shortstop Dale Teeter, who has raised his batting average considerably in tournament play. Teeter left early Saturday morning for Oregon on a trip. Roger Barr will take over for Teeter at shortstop. ALGONA had no difficulty in solving the pitching of the Gael's Tim Bemrich. They blasted out five hits in the first four in/ nings and finished up with four more hits in the seventh off his successor, Tom Hoerchler. St. Edmond's entered the game with a mediocre 6-12 record but the club had come on rapidly late in the season. Espe retired the side in the first three innings without a baserunner. Steve Barrett got St. Edmond's only hit of the game with one down in the 4th, a line shot through the pitcher'! box and over second. He died a1 third as did three other Gael runners. s vs. Mason Espe helped himself considerably in the early innings with. several fine fielding plays. He struck out the side in the fifth but gave up his first walk in 19 innings in the sixth with one out. The runner, Bemrich, stole second and third but was strand ed there when Espe whiffet Paul Gentile and Barrett. CATCHER DAVE Martin's error on a short tap in front of the place put Hoerchler on in the seventh. He also stole second and third but was nailed trying to steal home in a rundown. Ron Rissetter also walked but never got past third when Espe struck out his brother, Randy Rissetter, to end the game. ' The Bulldogs got two on in the first without scoring. Dave Martin walked to open the game and Rog Meyer's single was wasted when Bill Farnham fouled out. With one out in the second, Teeter walked, stole second and raced home on Gary Barr's shot over third base. Barr got to third on the throw and came home on Martin's single. A double play wiped out Tom Claude's third inning leadoff single but the Bulldogs explod ed for four runs in the fourth on only one hit. Teeter beat out a slow roller past the pitcher with one out Barr and Bill Boldridge walked Teeter scored on Martin's in field hit and Espe laid down perfect, suicide squeeze bun Barr charging home, THE THROW went to first, too ate to catch Espe and never missing a stride, Boldridge alert' y came home for the third run. of the inning. HE SCORED ALL THE WAY FROM SECOND on the bunt. Martin later scored on • wild pitch to make It 64. By this timo Hoerchler had relieved Bermich but Algona exploded In the seventh after boing hold down In the fifth and sixth. Rightfielder Jim Albrecht lost Rog Meyer's long fly in the lights and Meyer got a triple to open the merry-go-round. Bill Farnham laced a single scoring Meyer and Larry Scobba follow ed with a grounder through the hole near first. Three errors, a wild pitch and a walk to Teeter kept the rally going. Barr was hit by a pitch and he later scored.
