Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 20, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Texans Are Getting the Runs, So Ferguson Jenkins Gets the Victories ruce LowiM: By Bruce Lowilt AP Sports Writer "It takes the right kind of body, !he right kind of arm and the right kind of mental ap- Ferguson Jenkins said of the requirements needed to be a successful workhorse pitcher. He forgot to mention right kind of support. He's getting plenty who protected a one-run lead for five innings Friday night until the Rangers the Texas-and the refugee from the -Chicago Cubs' bandbox happier. "Never in baseball have I had 10 runs in back-to-back said the 3C-year-ok Mike Boit Busy Guy At Kansas LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Mike Boit of Kenya and East- ern 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- 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 ran a mile in the university four-mile relay in which East- ern New Mexico finished fourth, and anchored his team to victory in the college sprint medley with a split for tiie half-mile. Eastern New Mexico's triumph was achieved in Not All Out "I could have run better in the 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- meter runner. Each race helps the other because I work on sprinting in the 800 and endur- ance in the mile." Other top events .today were the Glenn Cunningham Mile and the open pole vault in which the spotlight was focused on former Rice star Dave Rob- erts. One record was set Friday. Reuben Fairfax turned in a 53- foot, triple jump thai eclipsed the old mark of 51-6 by Lennox Burgher of Nebraska in 1968 and matched by Steve Ar- kley of Colorado in 1973. How- ever, Charlton Ehizuelen of 11 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.

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 he added.

Jenkins recalled that "when Leo Durocher was managing the Cubs, he would hand me the ball and tell me to go oul there and pitch nine innings and forget about getting any help. He'd say I had all the equipment, so use it." Last season, under Whitey Lockman, "I had 35 starts and only seven complete games. Lockman didn't want me going past seven innings usually." Neto Ready for Playoff Game INDIANAPOLIS Indiana Pacers apparently will be able to use veteran forward Bob Netolicky in their Ameri- Basketball Association Division championship playoffs with Utah. Netolicky has been idle since he suffered a fractured left wrist March 8 in a fall during a game with Memphis. But his cast was removed Friday and the former Drake star will be eligible immediately for the playoffs.
