' -i {' - '' '•'•--.'-' !'::- i '•', : ;'- '*' •'..','. This last game was a good one with just one drawback — Algona came out on the losing end. It tyas a game of many lost opportunities for the Bulldogs, the kind they had cashed in on along, the tournament trail.; : : Espe, the little Whittemore battler who had pitched so mag- iinificenitly in previous games, gave it a try but retired after just an inning. He noticed discomfort in his arm Wednesday morning before the game while cleaning the swimming pool at Whittemore. "•• • ' V ?v Heat treatments threvgh. out the day failed to bring the muscles around. Esp* pitched • hitless first inning but a ^wild pitch; and • hit batsman indicated that all was not right and Larry Scobba was on the mound when the second inning began, AND THE No 2 man on the Bulldog mound staff did a fine job, make no mistake about it In fact, it was probably one of Scobba's better performances of ;the season. He was tough in the clutch but he couldn't maintain a shutout and that's what it would have taken, , !'j? ' ^ Algeria's bats were not e* jctly silenced but they were muffled by the slants of Sny.

The Bulldog., on this night, were "hitting 'em where they wts", •:,They got good wood on the ball but the fly bails were always to someone and so were the sharp grounders and there ; were plenty of tiheni.

(The Bulldogs got two more chances in the sixth and seventh. Bob Farnham, pinch-hitting for Bill Boldridge in the sixth, was hit by a pitch Espe knocked out his double to" put men on and third with one out. ' B Claude popped out and Mey__ grounded to second to end this flurry. And then in the seventh the Bulldogs again threaten- . ed to .pull the game out. Bob i Farnham coaxed • walk to lead off. Larry Scobba follow•d with an infield hit off the pitcher's glove and a wild throw put men «n first and third with no one out. Had the Bulldogs been just a run behind, they'd undoubtedly have gotteh Farnham home on squeeze bunts but they needed two runs to tie and had to go for the hit. Gary Barr went down on strikes and pinch-hitter Tom Jones did the same, Roger Barr then lofted a fly to center and it was ail over. this was a good Bulldog of-' fort but not quite good enough.. They got only three hits and the only two solid blows were by Espe, who also got on base in his other trip to the plate on an error by the third baseman; ALGONA (0) ab r W Martin, c,-.^: _,__^3 o ;6 Espe, p-lf, -i—.___3 0 '2 Claude, 2b,.,: __3 Meyer, 3b. —J___l___3 Bill Farnham, Ib. 2 Scobba", |f-p, __,^____3 G.
