Some 700 fans took in the two weekend ball games at t li e Henderson ball park, but only received their money's worth for one. Saturday night, the Lakers were a determined bsll club wanting to taste a victory while Sunday afternoon they seemed to be a little weak in most de- partments. In Sunday's contest, tbc Lak- ers grabbed a 1-0 first inning lead and then [ell apart at lire seams. The Tigers came up with three big runs in each of the third, sixth, seventh and eighth innings to walk away with the game hands down.

During the nine innings, the Tigers rocked three Laker pitchers for 14 hits with Hod Taylor taking the loss going six innings. Bernie Sonntag came In re- lief during the seventh trame while Dave Bruce took over the chores in the ninth. The only thing going for the Lakers in the game was their hitting as they rapped winning pitcher Lonnie Funk 12 times. Stranding 13 base runners could have possibly been the difference. Mark Newson led the Tiper hitlers stroking three singles while Dave Edson chipped in with a triple and a double. Bob Turner led the Lakers at the plate pokirg out four singles while Hob Roy and Atbol Thomas managed a pair of singles each. TRAILED 8-0 Saturday night, the Lakers were trailing 0-0 after two in- nings, but came back in the late innings to threaten the Tigers' lead. The Lakers scored two nms in the fifth inning and five more in the but couldn't catch the visitors. Tom Sharpe earned the pitch- ing victory on 10 hits, three walks and seven strikeouts while loser Dennis King, who lasted 1 1-3 innings was charged with seven runs and reliever Al Ferchuk gave up three. Julie Owchar topped the Tig- ers' hitting line up with a double and two singles while Dave Sowinski and Sharpe chipped in with two singles apiece. Jeff Derccat, who was instru- mental in the Lakers' late in- ning surge, came up -with a double and a single while Howie Heggedal and Marty Maxwell added two singles apiece.
