Lakers were bent on self destruction with better than uuo witnesses. Lakers, the newest entry in the Alberta Major Baseball League, entertained the Cal- gary Gianl.s Tuesday evening at Henderson Park and Imd the shirtsleeve crowd wondering it the Lakers would do them- selves in. The locals, however, shook off early miscues to register a thrilling 4-3 extra-inning vic- tory and preserve their un- blemished record at 5-0. Tho loss was the first for the Giants in Uiree outings. Starter Randy Maxwell look- ed lo the bullpen tor a new infield in the second inning as the Giants scored ah their runs with the aid of tliree Lakers' errors. But the locals got one back in the third ou an inside the park home run by Tim Negrello and two in the eighth on a single by Marty Maxwell to set the stage tor the winner ui the bottom of the 10th in- ning. Alert base running and sloppy Calgary play led lo the whining run in the JOlh. Craig Handell took t h e mound for the Giants alter re- placing Gord Vejprava who had come on in the eighth in- ning to relieve starter Steve Loveless. Handell promptly got winning pitcher Mod Taylor, who now has won three games, to ground out. Howie Hcggedal then slapped a Itandell offer ing into deep left field for a double. Larry Edwards followed Ileg- gudal to the plate and hit a rouline ground ball to Giants' shorlstop Brian Ilogan. The end was near as Hogan hurried his throw. By the tine first base- man Stew Ilerron realized it and knocked down Ilogan's low throw llcggedal was on his way home with the winner. Herron tried in vain lo make a play at home but failed. Ilcggedal's heroics almost over-shadowed an outstanding performance by Ill-year-old Marty Maxwell. The young second baseman went three-for- lliree at the plate including a clutcli single in the eighth to knock in two runs lo tie the game. "We should have had it won in the eighth and the said coach John Vasclenak. The Lakers had a good chance in the eighth with two men on and two away after Maxwell had tied the game but a running grab by right fielder THE WINNER Howie Heggedal crosses home plale in the 10th inn- ing lo give the Lelhbndge Lakers a 4-3 win over the Calgary Gianls in Al- bcria Major Bosobnll League action al Henderson Park Tuesday evening as better than 800 shirtsleeve fans took in the game.
