By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor The uniforms were the same and except for starting pitcher Randy Maxwell, the lineup was the same. And yet, something had changed. Lethbridge Lakers, who Tuesday greeted 650 fans with a flawless performance in dumping Calgary Giants 9-0, turned in a complete reversal of form Wednesday as they bowed 7-2 to Calgary Jimmies. Playing coach Paul Sullivan, in the dressing room after the game made it clear that he wasn't all that happy. "How can we look so good one night and then play this bad the next he questioned.

Led by the home run and single by Self, a second 410' blast from Ken Grove and Powers' double and single, the Jimmies scored twice more in the fourth and added singles in the sixth and eighth. Lakers, who stranded 10 men on base, had their chances but were able to capitalize only once. In the second inning Rob Roy was hit by a pitch and then advanced to third on Negrello's double.
