July Pages 'f take it RICK ERVIN photo Lethbridge Lakers' Paul seems to be rubbing away a few tears as he watched his boys drop their 12th Alberta Major Baseball League game at Henderson Lake Stadium Tuesday night. The visiting Calgary Giants could have made all Laker fans cry last night'as they shackled the locals 7-4 with the aid of Giant's Paul 'Gallivan's third-inning grand slam home run. Grand slam beats three rallies fall short By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer The Lethbridge Lakers spent the entire evening try- ing to accomplish what Paul Gallivan did with one swing of the and they dropping an Alberta Major Baseball League game 7-4 to the Calgary Giants Tuesday at Henderson Park. Gallivan belted a grand-slam home run over the center field wall in the third inning of Tuesday's and that was about all the offense the giants needed to tag the Lakers with their 12th loss in 15 league games. The blast gave the Giants a 7-1 lead which the locals could not overcome despite starting rallies three times in the later stages of the game. Lethbridge scored single runs in the sixth and ninth but each time the Giants managed to snuff out the drive before it got out of hand. The Lakers hope that things won't be so frustrating when they take on the Calgary Jimmies Thursday night at Henderson Park in the semi-final of the AMBL Super Series. The which was postponed Sunday due to wet field features Canadian players a restriction which should work to- the Lakers advan- tage. Paul Sullivan's team presently has only one American while the Jimmies start four in the AMBL regular-season games. Tuesday the Giants took a 2-0 lead in the first getting Laker pitcher Mike Buist in trouble right off the It took a diving catch by center-fielder Tim Negrello to hold the visitors to a pair of runs in the first frame. The Lakers came back for a run in their half of the first when Rob Roy's single drove Gary Picone across to cut the gap. But the Giants' exploded for five runs in the third in- taking a 7-1 lead which proved insurmountable to the locals. Dave on first base by a fielder's mov- ed to third when Mike Buist's pickoff attempt ended up at the first-base fence. He scored on John Edwards' single. After Ray Forgie a passed ball allowed the two Giant runners to advance to second and third before Tom Parks walked to load the bases. That set the stage for Gallivan's line-drive Jim Dompier got one run back for the Lakers when he smacked a lead-off home run in the fourth inning. The most promising Laker rally came in the sixth in- when singles'by Neil Bozak and Ken Nakama loaded the bases with two away. Giants pitcher Paul Chartrand walked in one but got Gary Picone on a to center field to end the in- ning. Lethbridge scored their last run in the ninth when Bob Turner's high pop fly just in front of home plate dropped between Giants third baseman Larry Nikonechi and catcher Joe McAuley just as Rob Roy crossed the plate from third base. With two runners aboard and the tying run at the plate in person of Lakers playing-manager Paul Chartrand came up big striking out Sullivan to end the game. Although Buist allowed only nine the same number the Lakers managed off he gave up nine costly and threw four balls that got past catcher Neil along with one wild pitch. Dompier was the bright spot for the poking two singles to go along with his home run. Tim Negrello also had two singles for the locals. In Red left-handed Bob Bridges tossed a four- hitter and drove in two runs as the Generals laced Calgary Jimmies 10-1 in Alberta Major Baseball League action Tuesday night. Bridges struck out nine and walked only two for the who lead the league's Northern Division. The loss was the third in 16 games for the who lead the league's Southern Division. Left-fielder Ron Moffat drove in Calgary's only run in the second inning. Bridges subsequently allowed only three other base retiring 12 men in order in one stretch. John Elick had two of the four Calgary hits. Generals jumped on losing pitcher Brian Kingman for nine hits by Phil Boston and import short- stop Phil Urade. Fly Balls The Lakers have to be the big surprise in the AMBL this year they started the season looking stronger on paper than the club that took the regular- season title last season. although their pitching and infield have been suspect at the real problem is simply the absence of a big stick in the clutch the Lakers had the same number of hits and errors last night... but with the bases Gary Picone flied out to center field while Paul Gallivan belted-one over the fence many times this the Lakers have poked bases-empty homers while the opposition was smacking grand slams it means three runs on every exchange.
