12-Algono, (la.) Upper Dei MoinM thunday, Jun» 16, 1966 Wagner's Grand Slam Puts Bears Past St. Ed's, 6-4 An inside the park grand slam home run by catcher Tom Wagner in the home half of the fifth inning triggered Garrigan's Golden Bears to a 6-4 victory over St. Edmond before a large crowd here Tuesday night. The win was the fifth for the locals in 11 tries. Coach Duane Kramer's club will meet Marshalltown in the second half of a day-night doubleheader here this Saturday about 8:30 p. m. Algona High will host the Bobcats, coached by former Garrigan basketball head man, Leon Vann, in a 4 p. m. contest and all three squads will enjoy a picnic at Call State Park between games. Bill Reding went all the way on the hill for the Bears against the Gaels, giving up six hits, one more than the winners got, but Wagner's long, high drive to right center field settled the Issue, shattering a 2-2 tie. The game was scoreless through two innings, with Reding and lefty Tom Hoerchler of the visitors all even. Then a pair of base hits, fielder's choice and a pair of walks, one with the bases loaded and two out, put the Gaels ahead, 1-0, in the top of the third. Bill Milder opened the home half of the third for the Bears with a single to right. Denny Long laid down a perfect bunt, Milder going to third on an error and Long stole second, setting the stage for a long double to right by Joe Becker, giving Garrigan a 2-1 edge. An error and a triple by Hoerchler put the game into a 2-2 tie in the top of the fifth and set up Wagner's belt. With one out, Long walked and Becker singled to right. Reding coaxed a walk loading them up and with two out, Wagner's drive was lost momentarily by the center- fielder, who could not have made a catch anyway, and four Bears crossed the plate, Wagner the last with a fancy slide. The Gaels nicked Reding for two runs in the sixth, but the rally was choked and the seventh uneventful as the Bears hung on to win. Reding struck out eight and walked live while Hoerchler whiffed 10 and issued five Annie Oakleys. Each team committed three errors. Becker of the Bears and Hoerchler of the Gaels each got a pair of hits.

Rich Yeorran of Algona was the uncontested roll over champion in the h:V:v stock division at races here in 1965 - but until the sessior. here Friday night had managed to keep his car between the fences. During the third heat of a smash-bang program, Yeoman came wide out of the number four turn and smacked into the guard rail in front of the grandstand. The results can be seen above. Two eood-sized planks stabbed into the right front portion of the car, causing considerable damage. After the mishap, the car continued down the track, coming to a stop on the number one turn. Yeoman was not hurt. None of the other drivers were either on the wildest night of racing seen here this season.

Espe Gets No-Hitter As AHS Dumps C-Lake Craig Espe, .tricky AHS left- hander, fired a no-hitter and came within an eyelash of a perfect game as the Bulldogs bumped Clear Lake in a North Central Conference game there Tuesday, 4-0. Only a hit batter in the bottom of the fourth inning kept him from being perfect as he struck out 15, allowed no walks and got perfect support from his teammates. Coach Keith Christie's club travels to Clarion Friday for another loop fray, then hosts Marshalltown in the first, half of a day-night doubleheader here Saturday at 4 p.m. Algona now has a 5-1 record for the year and Espe's mark is 4-0. With the exception of the hit batter, Ransom, who led off the fourth getting nicked by an Espe toss, It was three-up, three down for the Lions. Espe struck out the side In the first and sixth innings and got two strikeouts each in the second, third, fourth and fifth. The Bulldogs, who threatened in the first, didn't get on the Scoreboard until the top of the fourth. First inning hits by Dave Martin and Rog Meyer were wasted before Meyer slammed a home run to open the fourth to make it i»Q. While the one run was all Espe needed, Algona added three ia the top of the final frame to clinch matters. Bill Boldridge walked and Gary Barr reached on an error before Espe banged a single and Tom Claude was safe on an error, accounting for the counters. Meyer's two hits were half of Algona's total off Don Anderson ace of the Clear Lake staff. The losers committed four errors, while Algona fielders had only six chances - and not a ball was hit out of the infield by the losers. Anderson struck out only four and walked five.
