Pat Sullivan Coach Paul Sullivan is faced with what can only be described as a 'dillemma. He has to find a way to get his Lethbridge Lakers up for a game with Calgary Jimmies. Last year it was somewhat of a problem. However, the club, of which Sullivan was the ace, gave the Jimmies their lumps on more than one occasion. But it took an all out-effort, an almost supreme effort. Wednesday night the Jimmies paid their first visit to Henderson Park. From the first cry of "play the Lakers played as though they were mesmerized by the powder blue boys from the Cowtown. It wasn't the same Laker club that Tuesday evening turned in an almost perfect outing. Sullivan asked the same question as many fans did. "How can we play so well one night and so terrible the he wondered. Tuesday night, the first home game of the season, the club committed no errors, had 17 hits and everyone on the club shared in the hits with at least one each. But the Jimmies visit and what happens? Two players account for five of the nine hits the club did manage to earn and six errors are committed on the field along with numerous mental errors. Rob Roy, the Laker first baseman, came as close to a solution as anyone in the dressing room after the game. Roy, who had a single and was hit by a pitch, said the Jimmies were ripe for a thumping and the Lakers did nothing. The locals are not that bad a ball club. No one can convince me of that. I saw them Tuesday and they were great. There is no doubt in my mind that the Lakers, to a player, gave it their all Wednesday night. But something was lacking. I had a phone call from one fan who couldn't remember hearing any lullabyes but he was certain the Lakers were asleep in the field. The infield chatter was noticeable by its absence. The entire team seemed to have a nine inning letdown. I watched the Lakers all last year, with much the same club, and I know a bases loaded, none out situation spelt disaster for the opposition. Wednesday night they jammed the sacks and got nowhere for their efforts. Sullivan felt possibly the club hadn't come down from the high they reached in Tuesday's triumph. It's tough on a club to play the first nine games on the road. Then to come home and impress the local fans in such a manner as they did Tuesday. I guess they can be allowed one letdown. Lakers are currently 3-8 on the season. A big.series comes up this weekend when Red Deer Generals pay a two-day visit to Henderson Park. Generals and Lakers split last weekend in Red Deer despite the fact the Lakers had 16 hits Saturday and another 14 Sunday. In that hitting attack were five home runs that accounted for just five runs. Lakers can get some of the kinks from Wednesday out of their system tonight when they host Berkely, California Bears in an exhibition game. Lakers have shaken off worse games than Wednesday. There is no panic button within reach. However, myself and the more than 500 fans who were on hand Wednesday would like to know just what kind of spell the Jimmies have over the locals. There has got to be a cure. Here's hoping we find it soon. Fastball roundup 'The Labor Club AThletics handed the league leading Lethbridge Hotel Northstars a slim 4-3 setback in the first of two Southern Alberta Major Men's Fastball League games staged at Dave Elton. It was only the second loss of the season for the Northstars who trailed 4-0 after the one complete inning of play. George Jackci was impressive in his first appearance on the mound this year as he allowed just five hits going the route. Ron Zasadny was tagged with the loss after giving up six hits and firing the third strike past 10 batters. Terry Rhodes. Richard Deitzen and Ron Hahn led the Athletics at the plate with a double each while Wayne Nesbitt stroked two singles and Ken Indzeoski a double for the IVorthstars. Picture Butte Rae Motors pounded out 12 hits, and were aided by five errors as they trounced Pic-A-Pop 13-1 in Major Men's Fastball action. Berry Reiter stroked a home run and single for the winners while Terry O'Donnell lashed out a triple, double and single. Wayne Shearer chipped in with a double. Don Gross and Eugene Yamada managed two singles each for Pic-A-Pop. Softball The Cougars whipped the Tigerettes 11-4 in a Lethbridge Minor Softball League contest. Sue Lovell and Cheryl Houtkamer shared the pitching duties for the winners while Sandra Ferguson took the loss, despite hitting the only game's home run herself.

MI HA a. s. 328-9271 Cut down again at home Greg Kveder (7) was the second Junior Minor to get cut down at the plate in an 8-5 loss to Vauxhall. Miners lose on two pitches By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer Two bad pitches spoiled an otherwise strong performance by Allan Korth and gave the Vauxhall Jets an 8-5 Southern Alberta Junior Baseball League triumph over the Lethbridge Junior Miners Thursday night at Henderson Park. Twice the Jets, Dale Tillman came to the plate with a runner on first, and twice he blasted home runs well over the centre-field fence. The four runs he drove in accounted for the winning margin in one of the lowest scoring SAJBL contests local fans have seen this year. Aside from those two pitches. Korth was pretty effective on the mound, striking out 13 batters and walking only four. But six other hits, and five errors by usually steady Miner shortstop Dennis Hatt gave Vauxhall four runs, paving the way for Tillman's deciding blasts. Miner batters just couldn't seem to get untracked as they managed only six hits against winning pitcher Wayne Stickle, who went the distance on the hill for the Jets. Les Sjogren and Allan Korth each stroked two singles, while the locals' big guns were silent throughout the evening. The Miners also cost themselves two runs on the basepaths. Both Greg Kveder and Jim McLellan were thrown out trying to take home. The Junior Miners' season record now stands at 5-7. and they will play the rest of the year on the road, beginning next Thursday when they travel to Vauxhall. An inter league conflict may prevent the second half of the SAJBL round robin playoffs from coming to Lethbridge in late July as was. originally scheduled, but local fans may still see the Miners in Henderson Park again this year.

BETTING: last night that Lethbridge is bidding to hold the Western Canada Junior Baseball Championships in mid- August.

Fly Balls Tillman's second homer was an exact duplicate of the first. both soared well over the centre field wall just to the left of the Scoreboard when two junior clubs combine for only 14 hits in one game, you know that there is some pretty good pitching going on both Stickle and Korth were strong. 7-6 victory gets protest BARRHEAD, Alta. (CP) Gary Hawkey slapped a bases- loaded single with two out in the bottom of the ninth inning Thursday night to drive in two runs to give Barrhead Cardinals a 7-6 Alberta Major Baseball League victory over Red Deer Generals. Hawkey's hit was one of 12 picked up by Barrhead off three Red Deer pitchers. Red Deer played the game under protest because of a controversial play in the seventh inning. The umpire ruled that Red Deer catcher Brian McCook interferred with the batter as Terry Hendley attempted to steal home with the bases loaded. After the run was allowed.
