Story from the Cedar Rapids Gazette 8/3/1972

Burlington--When it comes time to list baseball pitchers who have lost heartbreakers, the name Gary Trumbauer will be close to the top.

Trumbauer, the Cedar Rapids Cardinals' big right hander from Thousand Oaks, Calif., pitched a no-hit game here Wednesday night but lost it to Burlington, 1-0, on some walks, a wild pitch and the Cardinals only error of the game.

That's not half the story

The Cardinals got 10 hits, including a double and five walks, but couldn't manufacture a run. They had runners on base in every inning but the eighth and at least one hit in every inning but the sixth and the eighth.

Cedar Rapids left 12 men on base and had five runners cut down on the base paths. Every starter except Trumbauer and second baseman Luis Gonzalez had at least one hit. Left fielder, Jim Dunham had three singles and center fielder, Fred McGaha had two.

The Bees got their run in the fifth. Don Ford lef off with a walk and stole second, but Trumbauer picked him off. Joe Robinson walked, took second on one of Trumbauer's four wild pitched and scored when Ron Lollis' grounder went through Manny Abreu's legs at short.

Abreu may have been distracted momentarily when thirdbaseman Mike Vail cut in front of him, but the official scorer had no choice but to rule it an error.

Trumbauer walked five and struck out five as his record reached 2-5. The Bees hit only one ball to the outfield-Bernie Boehmer's routine fly to right in the second.

The Cards started their sequence of frustration in the fourth. With one out, Fred Aquino singled and Gonzalez walked. Trumbauer laid down a bunt, but Aquino was forced at third. Gonzalez took second but was thrown out at the plate trying to score on McGaha's single.

Mark Hale reached base on an error in the fifth and was cut down trying to reach third on Vail's single to right. Larry Herndon, who arrived unannounced to the Cardinal team recently, singled but Abreu struck out to end the inning.

Dunham and Hale singled in the seventh, but Dunham was picked off second by the catcher. Hale was thrown out trying to steal second as Vail struck out.

The Cards had one more gasp in the ninth. McGaha and Dunham singled with two outs, but Hale popped out to end the game.

Alan Griffin survived the 10 hits and five walks to post the victory for Burlington. With rain threatening, the Cards are slated to play here Thursday and Friday nights.
