Second Espe No-Hitter, Bulldogs Dump Humboldt 7-0, Win NCC Title Tuetdoy, Jun« 21, 1966 Algona, (la.) UpjMr DM Molnw The no-hit pitching of Craig Sspe, who picked up his second litless win of the campaign, coupled with lots of mileage from Tix hits, led the Algona Bulldogs o a 7-0 victory over Humboldt .iere Friday evening as the locals winched at least a share of the -forth Central Conference title. Coach Keith Christie's club now 10-1 for the year and 6-1 n the loop, traveled to Bode for a meeting with Twin Rivers last night (Monday). The locals then host Burt at 6:30 today (Tuesday), travel to Eagle Grove for a game Wednesday at 8 and to Forest City for another 8 p. m. contest Saturday. While Espe, getting excellent support in the field, was setting the Wildcats down without a blow, the Bulldogs pecked away for single runs in the second, third and fifth, then put it out of reach with four in the sixth. Espe walked four and hit one opponent, but countered with 11 strikeouts The only shaky moment came in the top of the seventh and a runner on first with none out. Olson of the Wildcats slammed a long, high drive to left which became a real difficult chance for Larry Scobba as the wind carried it. He righted himself in time to haul it in. Algona got away to its sixth straight win with a single by Bill Farnham, a balk, a walk to Scobba, a fielder's choice and a perfect bunt single by Gary Barr good for a run in the home naif of the second. In the third, Tom Claude was nicked by a pitch and went around on a wild pitch, walk to Farnham •uid an interference call on the Humboldt catcher on an attempted .steal of home, Espe opened the bottom of the fifth with his second single and eventually scored on a wild pitch ifter walks to Farnham and Scobba. Then in the sixth, a single by Tom Jones, walks to Dave Martin and Rog Meyer and three fielder's choices were followed by a !x>oming double by Scobba and the final four runs were in. Hadar and Olson shared the pitching duties for the losers and allowed six hits, six walks, •i hit batter and struck out four. tSspe got two of Algona's hits. The victory was the seventh without a loss for the lefty.
