Faced with bleacher late training camp because of the rainy spring and some very costly the Lakers appeared to be putting it all together in the all-Canadian Super that is until Saturday. Edmonton Tigers saw to it that the locals would not be making a second trip to the Alberta final in as many years as they thumped the Lakers 11-6 in the one-game show- down for the Alberta Major Baseball League berth in the final against the Alberta Baseball Association cham- pions.

His delight didn't last long as the Tigers came back with four runs in the bot- tom of the fourth and they never looked back. Randy Maxwell came on in relief of Sullivan in the fifth inning but by that time the damage had been done and winning pitcher Dick Hazel had an 8-3 cushion to work with. John Turriff sparked the Tiger attack with a double and three singles as the Edmonton club pounded out 16 hits. Al Symington chipped in with a double and two singles. Mike Sleeves came up with two including a home as did three other Tigers. Bobby Brown was the only Laker to get to Hazel for an extra-base hit..Brown stroked a double and single while Gary Picone and Tim Negrello each had two singles. Sunday's twin- bill saw a contrast in styles as the two clubs slugged it out in the first game while in the se- cond Jerry Veres of the Lakers scattered just four singles. Veres was sharp in his vic- tory as he fanned five Tigers and allowed just one walk. Losing pitcher Stu Henderson gave way to Ken Ewasiuk in the sixth inning. Jim Dompier and Negrello came up with three hits apiece to back Veres' pitching. One of Dompier's hits was a double. Ken Nakama stroked a home run in between a dou- ble and triple off the bat of Kent Peterson. In the first game Sunday Symington got to Laker pitching for two doubles and a single. Five other players each had two hits. On the Laker side of the ledger Negrello had three more one a while Peterson had a single and dou- ble and Picone a triple.

Winner Brian Kingham struck out 10. Terry Hendley gave up nine hits in the losing effort. He was victimized by six Cardinal errors.
