The Lethbridge Lakers are trying to be the exception to the rule as they earned victor- ies in Ihcir first two starts in Alberta Major Baseball League competition on the weekend. Some 700 partisan fans watched the Lakers defeat the visiting Edmonton Blue Willow Angels 9-4 Sunday night and 4-0 Monday afternoon at the Henderson Ball Park. In Monday's encounter, the Lakers came up with two runs in both the fourth and seventh innings to notch the victory. Wayne Commodore, the Lakers' power hitting right- fielder, gave the paying cus- tomer what they wanted to see as he blasted in the winning run in the bottom of the fourth inning. With one man on base and two outs, Commodore cranked a lowering shot over the right field fence 360-feet away from home plate. Commodore had tagged the ball so hard, that the Edmon- ton's right fielder along with many spectators in the stands lost 'sight of the ball until it drifted over the fence.
