Self greeted his teammates with more than just a few ex- pletive deletives when they returned to the dugout after giving up nine runs in the eighth inning to give the Lakers a 20-run lead at 25-5. That was the Lakers second big rally of the evening. They had counted seven runs in the second an outburst which brought them back from a 3-0 deficit and put them ahead that brought them back from a 3-0 deficit and put them ahead to stay. Les Ohrn looked to be in trouble early when he gave up two doubles and a single in the first frame as the Jimmies took a 2-0 lead. The visitors added another run in their half of the second before the Lakers exploded. Then Ohrn closed the door on the giving up only two hits in the next five innings before the Calgary boys came back for a pair of runs in each of the eighth and ninth frames. The big left-hander came up with what may have been his strongest performance of the as he struck out 13 Jimmie batters along the way. On the other side of the it was a nightmare for Calgary pitchers. Starter John Fitzgerald and reliever Russ McKee combin- ed to give out 14 free rides to first base while firing six pitches that got past catcher Dave Powers. Meanwhile the Laker bats were pounding out 19 eight of which went for extra bases. Bobby Brown blasted a home run and two doubles while designated hitter Paul Sullivan ripped three doubles to lead the assault. Neil Bozak cracked a bases- empty homer and Gary Picone and Rob Roy each con- tributed a double and two singles while Jim Dom- pier had another three singles for the locals. The Jimmies got a triple and single from Russ McKee and three singles from Dave Powers. Both of the Lakers big in- nings resulted from a strange- ly inept Jimmie defense. The Lakers had only three hits in the seven-run second frame. They took advantage of four two passed balls and three errors on the Jimmies along with singles by Picone and Kent for the out- burst. Reliever Russ McKee had to face 13 batters in the and he gave six of those Lakers free rides to first besides throwing four wild pitches. The Jimmies also made two and it took only doubles by Ron Berlando and Paul and a single by THE TIME you KMZW i LIKE i TASKED Jv Jim Dompier to bring the nine runs across. The Lakers are hoping they saved a few runs for this when they host the Edmonton Tigers for a tripleheader at Henderson Park. The two teams will meet in the AMBL Super Series cham- pionship game Saturday night at 8 p.m. while two regular AMBL games are set for Sun- day afternoon at and 5 p.m. FLY BALLS John Self was extremely upset with his teammates tempers in the Jimmie dugout had reached the boiling point by nights- as often happens when you get soundly thrashed centre-fielder Tim Negrello and second baseman Bobby Brown teamed up for a beautiful relay play in the fourth inning to catch a Jim- mie trying to stretch a double to three bases Les Ohrn had Calgary batters shaking their heads last night he was blowing fastballs past then coming back with curves that had them ducking their heads before breaking over the plate.
