   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 20, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                 Texans Are Getting the Runs, So Ferguson Jenkins Gets the Victories  Prentice, Rankin Are Golf Leaders  By Bruce Lowitt  AP Sports Writer  “It takes the right kind of body, the right kind of arm and the right kind of mental approach,” Ferguson Jenkins said of the requirements needed to be a successful workhorse pitcher.  He forgot to mention the right kind of support.  He’s getting plenty in Texas—and the refugee from the -Chicago Cubs’ bandbox called Wrigley Field couldn’t be happier.  “Never in baseball have I had IO runs in back-to-back games,” said the 30-year-old  Ferguson  Jenkins  right-hander, who protected a one-run lead for five innings Friday night until the Hangers got him eight more in the eighth inning, pounding the Minnesota Twins 10-2. The Rangers carried him to a 10-2 victory over World Champion Oakland last Sunday.  In Friday’s other American League games, Boston beat Cleveland 6-3, Baltimore defeated the New York Yankees 5- of the season, a 3, Oakland whipped California 5-1 and the Chicago White Sox edged Kansas City 5-4.  Rangers IO, Twins 2  tie-breaking shot in the third inning off Bill Hands, put Jenkins on top and he maintained his tenuous  perch until the Rangers got Jim Fregosi’s first home run him gulps of breathing room tubularly the  with their outburst against two relievers. The big hits were Erie Sundberg’s two-run triple off Tom Burgmeier and Alex Johnson’s two-run single off Dan Fife.  Jenkins, 3-1, then cruised to his fourth straight complete game, the first pitcher to do it for this team since Tom Cheney achieved the feat in 1963, when the club called Washington its home.  “There are some good hitters on this team,” Jenkins understated. “They won’t be shut out many times.  “I like what I’ve seen, par-attitude around  here,” he added. “A lot of  By Ron Roach  PALM SPRINGS, Calif.

(AP) -Mike Boit of Kenya and Eastern New Mexico is probably the busiest athlete in the Kansas Relays, and he had another major assignment today.  Boit, a sophomore, was scheduled to run in the in-1 vitational mile against such' other stars as Rick Wolhuter, the world record holder in the 880, and former Olympic ace Byron Dyce.  Boit was busy Friday. He rani a 4:12.2 mile in the university four-mile relay in which Eastern New Mexico finished fourth, and anchored his team to victory in the college sprint medley with a 1:47.1 split for the half-mile. Eastern New Mexico’s triumph was achieved in 3:22.1.  Not All Out  “I could have run better ini the mile,” said Boit, “but I knew the sprint medley was !  coming up so I didn’t go all out. I feel like I’m training here to be a miler and an 8 0-i meter runner. Each race helps' the other because I work on 1  sprinting in the 800 and endurance in the mile.”  Other top events today were, the Glenn Cunningham Mile' and the open pole vault in 1  which the spotlight was focused on former Rice star Dave Roberts.  One record was set Friday.)  Reuben Fairfax turned in a 53-foot, 6%-inch triple jump that eclipsed the old mark of 51-6 by Lennox Burgher of Nebraska in 1968 and matched by Steve Ar-kley of Colorado in 1973.
