Coach Duane Kramer's outfit travels to Graettinger this afternoon (Thursday), then to Mason City Newman for a doubleheader Saturday as play from here on gets hot and heavy. The Bears had to come from behind to win Tuesday, and climaxed the victory by cutting short a last-ditch Clear Lake rally in the bottom of the seventh inning. The locals took a 1-0 lead in the top of the opening frame as Joe Becker slammed a triple and scored on a ground out, but trailed 2-1 as the Lions picked up single tallies in the fourth and fifth innings. That's the way the score remained until the top of the final frame. Bill Reding smashed a double and scored on a suicide squeeze bunt by Denny Long to tie the count at 2-2, then Becker reached on a fielder's choice and Dick Blelch doubled him home. Then, Dick Muiler crashed another two-baser, sending Bleich in with the fourth run and a single counter by Clear Lake in the home half of the inning fell one run short. Becker and Mulier each got a pair of Garrigan's 10 hits. The Bears committed six errors and the Lions three. Milder limited the Lions to three blows, whiffed seven and walked three, while Don Anderson of the losers struck out seven and issued only one walk.
