   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 22, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                C.R. Ruins Waterloo: Title Hope By Sieve Allspach Pointing .-xpliritly and .spt-ak-' ing in tlie vermicular, bury Klencs described his own per- sonal triumph and that of the Cedar liapids Astros in sweep-, inn a double header from the! Waterloo lioyaj.s in! Memorial stadium, 4-2 and 3-1. j "I finally got my head on; straight and did the things I'm' .supposed to explained the! big righthander after scattering' five hits and hurling Astros! io a :i-I win the nightcap. j "1 had a long talk with I.eo earlier this week and 1 think it j helped. My concentration was better than it has been all j year and when I needed a pitch it was there. J "Mental altitude is a big part of pitching and I've lacked con- fidence, but maybe this will turn it around for both me and the said the California j native, who has the benefit of j two years of class AA season-1 ing. Throwing an assortment of changeups ancl sliders, plus a bristling fastball when he need- ed it, Elcnes delivered what may be the death knell to any chances the Royals had of'cap- turing the Midwest league North division first half championship. The Royals came to town hop- ing to use the lowly Astros as a springboard past Wisconsin Rapids, but absorbed their sec- ond consecutive double header loss to C. R. and virtually eli- minated themselves from con- tention since the Rapids dealt Appleton a 3-2 setback and dropped the Royals games behind. After Elenes walked the bases full in the first inning, he worked himself out of the jam and then the Astros gave him all the support he needed in the fourth. Pastor Perez jumped on lean 6-7 Mike Howard with a single and Fred Mims walked before Eric Brown and Jorge Moreno delivered RBI singles and Elenes aided his own cause with an infield out RBI. The flourish ended on a wierd double play on Elenes' grounder to shortstop Rick Rich. Rich tossed "to Rod Scott to force Brown at second, but when he pivoted he dropped the ball. In the ensuing action, Moreno tried to score from second but was thrown out at the plate. Alejandro Taveras, Raphael Tatis, Perez, and Brown had singled to give the Astros a 2-0 lead after four innings in the opener, but Waterloo lied it in the sixth with two runs off Luis Sanchez, searching for his sev- enth win of the year for the Astros. Four singles sparked that surge and Jose Alfaro was called on to rescue the C. R. for- tunes and he did by retiring Jay Freeman and then setting down the side in order in the seventh to record his first triumph. Tom Twellman, the hustling newcomer from Southern Illi- nois, started off the winning rally with a single and scored on Taveras' booming triple that' went into the Royals' bullpen in right field. When Rupert Jones finally got the ball back to the infield, Twellman was making a head- first dive with the winning run Runaway Stock Victory for Curt Hansen at The Downs The Cedar Rapids :Gazelle: Sat., June 7 22, 1974 Itv Al Miller Curt Hanson's fears were Nd by thf1 for bfinj' ;ibjf to sort a problem. ;ill week that Iwrrell would blow my doors off in the high Hansen said Friday night following his "The car wasn't handling right, so before the hot laps 1 had the guys .WTCVV .some wedge out of he ex- plained.

What our Customers Say:

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
