6-Mg*ne (to.) Uppar B«i Molnw Thuridoy, July 14, 1966 Bulldogs Bump Burt; Seek Sectional Crown A one-hit pitching job by lefty Craig Espe (who got his llth win without a defeat) and timely use of walks and extra-base hits ushered the Algona Bulldogs to a 7-0 victory over Burt in the semi-finals of the Sectional Baseball Tournament at Garrigan Field before a large crowd here Monday night." The locals, who ran their season mark to 16-2 while sending Burt to the sidelines with a 9-5 record (including three losses to the Bulldogs), were slated to meet the winner of the Thompson Sectional tourney at Garrigan last evening (Wednesday). The winner of that game will meet the LuVerne-Liver- more Sectional champ in the first round of the District Tournament at Garrigan Friday at 8 p. m. The third meeting of Algona and Burt was a dandy for three innings. The Bears, who dropped earlier decisions to Algona by 19-0 and 6-0 scores, definitely wanted the game - and their play in the first three innings cancelled all Algona threats. Algona had four base runners In the first without scoring, three in the second without getting a run and the frustration continued in the third as another pair of runners were wasted as Boyd Bristow, Burl's starting hurler, got out of all three jams with a lot of help from teammates. Meanwhile, during the same stretch, Espe moved down seven of the 10 batters he faced without strikeouts. The top of the fourth appeared to be another false start by the locals when Dale Teeter walked with one out and Bill Boldridge got a base on balls with two down. However, Dave Martin changed all that when he rapped the next pitch to the left-centerfield fence for a 2-run double. A walk toTom Claude, an error on a grounder and a sacrifice by Bill Farnham, moving the runners to second and third with one out, set the stage for three Bulldog runs in the fourth. Larry Scobba, probably the best combination leftfielder - pitcher- hitter around, promptly slapped a Bristow pitch to the corner of the centerfleld fence for a triple,- scoring Claude and Rog Meyer. One out later, Gary Barr walked and he and Scobba pulled off a double steal, with Scobba scoring to make it 5-0. Phil McFarland, who replaced Bristow on the mound for the Bears in the fifth, held the Algona club at bay through the fifth as Espe continued to zip through three-up, three-down innings, but the Bulldogs added another pair in the top of the seventh to sew up the win. With one out, Scobba walked and Craig Taylor went in to run for him. Roger Barr coaxed a walk and Gary Barr then slammed a triple to the same spot Scobba had hit earlier, sending in the final runs of the night. The suspense had been building throughout the contest as Espe got to the bottom of the seventh in search of his fourth no-hitter of the season. He got the first batter on a popup to third, but Doc Cunningham, Burt centerflelder, then cracked a neat liner to left for Burt's lone hit. The final two batters were then retired. The losers furnished plenty of defensive fireworks in the contest. While they committed three errors to Algona's one, the Bears also picked up a pair of neat double plays. The first came on a sacrifice attempt by Boldridge in the second, with Bristow catching Uie pop and firing to first for the second out, then in the seventh, rightfielder Jim Redemske, who turned in a fine r.'<« Boy's Will UAGUt Baseball Results: Colts 17, Athletics 1; Twins 10, Angels 8; Braves 10, Phillies 5; Astros 9, Cubs 4; Girls' Softball - Bombers 15, Missiles 1; Men's Softball Burt 6, Weidenhoff 5; Buschers 17, Buds 8.

The Bears' catcher, Bob Ortman, also kept the Bulldogs alive on the bases with his repeated throws. With Espe notching 16 strikeouts (he set a new season mark with these added), few fielding chances were offered to the Bulldogs. Meyer probably came up with the gem in the seventh, right after Cunningham's hit, when he managed to pick up a tricky pop bunt by Ortman and barely nipped him at first. McFarland struck out three and Bristow two, with the former allowing three walks and Bristow seven, plus a hit batter. Espe didn't walk a man. Gary Barr was the lone player in the game with two hits as Algona got six blows in the contest.

They were Tony Schiltz, a former Bancrofter now living here, and Bob Storck of Britt. They picked on the same hole, number five, a par three, 155- yard layout, for their perfect shots. However, they were in separate foursomes, and the one stroke holes came about 4 1/2 hours apart. Storck canned his with a 4- iron while playing with three other Britt men, John Anderson, Chuck Mullins and Dr. H. R. Morgan, and Tony, who is employed by Lindsay Soft Water here, banged his in while in the company of Howard Miller, his boss, Larry Johnson and Milo Kollasch, all of Algona. He used a five iron. Their scores ? Storck wound up with a 40 and Tony got a 42 over the nine hole course. The shots ran to three the number recorded at Hillside this summer.

Pull One Out Algona's fresh-soph baseball nine, under Coach Lynn Kueck, posted a 6-5 come-from-behind win over Clear Lake here last Thursday. Behind 5-2inthefinal frame, the Bullpups came up with four hits and victory. The winning rally came with two out and gave the locals a 2-5 record. Upper Des Moinesj SPORTS Wins "Roll-Over" Title • Dick Yeoman of Algona flipped his hobby stock in events here __ last season at least two times. Friday night following the regular stock car program, he was entered in a contest against Fritz Harris for the Roll Over championship - and won I Harris made three runs over a specially-constructed ramp without rolling his sedan, while Yeoman put his station wagon on its back on the second try - with the results shown above. He remains in the auto as members of various pit crews and track officials rush to the car to roll it back on its wheels. While he was apparently in no jeopardy, he undoubtedly was quite uncomfortable lying upside down against the smashed roof of the auto. (UDM Polaroid Flashfoto by Don Smith) MR. AND MRS.
