Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta July 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Super Series semi-final here Thursday Lakers shine in 4-1 triumph By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer The Lethbridge Lakers will have a few days to figure out what they did right Saturday night when they dumped the Red Deer Generals 4-1 in the quarter finals of the Alberta Major Baseball League Super Series at Henderson Park. The victory was supposed to send the Lakers into the semi-final against the Calgary Jimmies Sunday but a heavy overnight rainfall forced post- ponement of that contest until Thursday night. The Jimmies earned their berth in the semi final by edging the Edmonton Blockers 4-2 while the Ed- monton Tigers received a bye into the championship game after slipping past the Calgary Giants 5-4 in Saturday's other games. The Lakers came up with a solid defensive effort before 500 onlookers Saturday night and didn't look like the same ballclub that lost 15-6 and 13-6 to the same Generals in an AMBL doubleheader one week ago. Part of the difference was the fact that these were not exactly the same Generals. The Super Series is restricted to Canadian and the Generals were forced to play without the ser- vices of four of their leading including play- ing manager Marty Coil. the locals were a far superior unit to the one that has suffered 11 losses so far in AMBL play. The Laker which has been somewhat suspect of committed only two miscues in the and gave pitcher Paul Sullivan some needed support when the going got rough. Sullivan himself was shutting out the Generals until the bottom of the ninth when a error and a blooping single combined to give the Generals their only run. The Red Deer rally didn't stop and Sullivan almost let it get putting runners on se- cond and third with one away. But he came up big in the striking out one batter and getting the last one on an easy grc'jnder to shortstop Bobby Brown. The Lakers had taken a 1-0 lead in the second inn- ing when Ken Nakama stole and was driven in by Brian Hogan's double. That run began to look pretty big when the score remained unchanged after seven completed innings. But the Lakers put two General errors together with Tim Negrello's double and Bob Turner's single to score two runs in the eighth. Gary Picone's bases loaded sacrifice fly scored Brian Hogan in the inith to give the Lakers a 4-0 lead going into the final half frame. Negrello also had two singles against losing pitcher Fred who went the distance for Red Deer in the lowest scoring AMBL game local fans have seen this season. The Lakers managed only seven hits against Cardwell while Sullivan scattered six hits and struck out seven en route to the victory. Gord Tucker doubled and singled twice for the Generals while Roger Pozzo poled a pair of singles in a losing cause. In the other former Laker Wayne Com- modore's perfect throw from right field cut down the tying run at home plate in the bottom of the ninth inn- ing in the Tigers 5-4 victory. Three infield singles had loaded the bases for the Giants with no one out before Commodore and reliever Ken Ewasiuk combined forces to save the victory for Tigers starting pitcher Dick Hazel. Jules Owchar belted a double and single for the winners while Tim Young added two safeties against losing pitcher Ray Forgie. Rick Hindmarch and Bill Dunbar each singled twice for the Giants. And the Jimmies scored two runs in the seventh inning and added another pair in the ninth to eliminate the Blockers from further competition. Ken Grove's single and Chris Ouellette's sacrifice fly drove in the deciding runs for the Jimmies. Jimmies pitcher Ron Peterson gave up two runs in the second but allowed only one Blocker hit the rest of the way for the victory. John Elick showed the way for the Calgary batters with a double and while Russ McKee and Ken Grove each singled twice off losing pitcher John Osborne. Rick Johnson had two singles for the Blockers. Next action for the Lakers will be Tuesday night when they host the Calgary Giants for a regularly scheduled AMBL game beginning at 8 p.m. at Henderson Park. of they will host the Jimmies for the Super Series semi final. That one is set to go at 8 p.m. as well. Fly Balls American plavers must add a lot of or a lot of errors a typical AMBL game features 15 or 20 but all of Saturday's contests were tight defensive battles Laker officials got into a bit of a hassle with the Jimmies field manager Sun- day morning when the decision to postpone was still up in the air... He said he was concerned about the added expense of another trip down here and real- ly pushed to play the game despite the muddy field One can't help thinking he had other reasons for wanting to get it over with Sullivan was out- standing on the mound and by Thursday he should be ready to go again if need be the Lakers weren't trying to postpone the mind you they had Les Ohrn and Al Farchuk ready to and it was Ferchuk who hung a six hitter on the Giants a couple of weeks ago in the Lakers home opening 9-0 victory the Jimmies also wanted to move the semi final contest to but financial considerations forced them to relent... a game in Calgary this week would be completely wiped out attendance wise by the Stampede.

Mike Marshall shows top reliever stops former mates ASSOCIATED PRESS You really have to hand it to Mike Marshall. At least that's just what Walt Alston has been doing all year. The dean of major league baseball managers handed the ball to the dean of major league relief pitchers again and Marshall came through with his usual con- sistency. Appearing in his 56th and 57th games this Marshall recorded his 12th and 13th saves as Los Angeles Dodgers took a doubleheader from Montreal and 5-3. Marshall recently set a record by appearing in 13 straight games. the man is trying to get a hit off me and the other club is trying to beat me is the only incentive I need to do my Marshall said.
