Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 26, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE FOUR THE LETHEFUDGE DAILY HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 20, r LEZIE WAS IN GREAT FORM Pitched a No-Hit No- Run Game Against Moose Jaw A no-hit, game and giving Paddy Welch his bumps are surely features sufficient to make a grand finale for the baseball season in ..Lethbridge. "Aunt" Lexis was the shoot and what he did to the Bobin Hoods is one of the stellar records of the league. No hits and no runs, fine pitching and good sup- .port. The only chance for hit -was a hard chance to which Bell would have had if iMcGarry had not slanted it o3. It was a great performance. And then to think of knocking the Paddy. Welch out of the box. It 'was no gentle knock-out either, of the game. In the eighth Bell got hit, Smith muffed Townsend's hit, and both came in on a hit' by Chick- Tli at was all and enough..; Farrar, who had all through given the bast possible exhibition of how not to um- pire a game, called it off on account of darkness. Thus ended the, 1909 baseball- season in bridge. The score: LMooso AB R H 0 A E O'Hajvr. lb 400810 3 0 0 1 0 0 3 0 0 2 I Oj 3 00 1 2 Oi 2 0 0 G 1 OJ Anthony, rf Olnistcad. ss 3b.
