Tueiday, July 12, 1966 Algona, (la.) Upper Des Moines Brilliant Pitching As Bulldogs Nip flp • *W Mm> JR. SP A standing room only crowd (perhaps largest of the series to date) saw a typical Algona High-Garrigan tournament baseball game here Thursday evening, with the Bulldogs posting a 2-0 victory in a contest that was a chiller until the last out went into the book. The pitchers, Craig Espe, AHS lefty, and Bill Milder and Bill Reding, GHS righthanders, definitely had the best of it - with only six hits in the game (five by the Bulldogs) and none after the third inning. Espe,. who has been stingy with hits practically every time out this season, retired the final 14 Garrigan hitters, and Reding, who came on in relief of Milder with two out in the top of the third, set down the final 13 public high swingers. The win in the first round Sectional Tournament game moved the Bulldogs into a meeting with Britt, slated Saturday evening at Garrigan Field. One^pitch separated Espe from a second consecutive no-hitter. Mike Lickteig, Garrigan shortstop, blooped a singled in front of right fielder Gary Barr of the Bulldogs in the second with two out - and it was the lone GHS knock. Garrigan had only one other base runner - Milder, who reached first on Espe's error in the bottom of the third. He was sacrificed to second by Denny Long, but died there as Espe whiffed the next hitter. Algona High threatened three times - and managed singled runs in the top of the second and third frames. The sacks were loaded off Milder in the first with one out as Dave Martin led off with an infield single, Tom Claude reached on an error and Rog Meyer slapped a liner to center. A good play by the Bears' centerfielder, Joe Becker, who fired a strike to the plate, kept Martin from scoring. Moments later, Martin'was thrown out at home attempting to steal and a strikeout ended the inning. In the second, Dale Teeter reached on an error (the Bears made three, Algona High one), stole second and scored with one i out on a three base throwing error on an infield tap by Bill Boldridge. An untainted Bulldog run came in the third. Claude singled to center with one out. Meyer popped to right for the second out, but Larry Scobba lined a base hit to center and Teeter drove in Claude with another short to the same spot. That's when Reding took the hill and retired the final' 13 Bulldogs. Espe did the same thing to Garrigan after his error on Milder's tap, so the fans got to see plenty of fine pitching during the final 4-plus innings. The crafty lefthander got plenty of help when needed from his mates. Meyer made a fine play on a slow tap down the line toward third off the bat of Dick Salz in the fourth, getting him by about a step and Teeter strung two dandies together at the end of the game on balls hit by Dick Mueller and Salz. Chuck Geilenfeld had a busy night at third for the Bears, turning in a couple of first class plays. His stop of a Meyer slam and throw to first in the i Sectional Tourney, fifth inning was an important move and he turned in another on a Martin tap in the seventh. Becker's throw to the plate in the first might have been the play that kept the contest from becoming a rout. The game was played in one hour, 20 minutes as the Bulldogs upped their mark to 14-2 &nd (he Garfigan record went to 4-5. There were no walks in the game, Espe whiffing 11, Reding eight and Milder four. At the plate, Lickteig of the Bears and Martin, Claude, Meyer, Scobba and Teeter of the Bulldogs each got one hit. It was the type of contest fans (whether on the winning or losing end) get a real kick out of - and the players on the opposing teams seemed to like it, too!

The Bulldogs counted single runs in the second and third innings for a 2-0 victory, their 14th in 16 starts, while the Bears suffered their 10th loss in 19 outings. Craig Espe, left, went all the way on the hill for the winners, getting his 10th win without a loss, while Bill Milder, right, started for the Bears and was relieved by Bill Reding in the third frame. Christie is second from left and Kramer second from the right. As the score indicates, the game was typically AHS-GHS, a thriller right to the end.
