   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 24, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                T I I P" m A f I The Cfdar Gazette: Sat., August 24, 1974 Tiant Pays Debt First to W.n 20 Win to" BoSox Get Returns on A Gamble By Alex Sachare Asiociated Prfss Sports Writer Luis Tiant is a man who pays his debts. Four years ago, Tianfs ca- reer seemed at an end. After seven years in the majors, he had been traded away by the Cleveland Indians, then re- leased outright by the Min- nesota Twins. But at the recommendation of Darrell Johnson, manager o the Boston Red Sox farm dub at Richmond, he was signed bj that International League club then given one last shot in th majors. He made the most o the opportunity, becoming a mainstay of the Boston starting staff. Wins 20th Now Johnson is manager o the Red Sox, and Tiant is re turning the favor. Friday nigh he became baseball's first 20- game winner by hurling a spar kling, six-hit, 3-0 shutout ove: the Oakland A's. Louis Tiant best right "He's declared Oakland slugger Reg gie Jackson. "When he gets into a groove, he's tough to he was in it tonight.' Actually, Tiant has been in the groove for some .time now Since May 13, he's won 18 games and lost just three boosting his season mark to 20 8. He's Tough "He's a tough said Johnson. "He doesn't give them anything to hit." Then he did some lobbying. "I think, without any reserva- tion, that he should be the Mosl Valuable Player in the Ameri- can League, as well as the Cy Young Award Johnson said. "Just look at the there's no way a man can do more for his team than he has done for us." Elsewhere in the American League, the New York Yankees blasted California 10-4, Balti- more defeated Minnesota 4-1, Texas beat Detroit 5-2, -the Chi- cago White Sox edged Cleve- land'2-1 and Kansas City beat Milwaukee 8-4 in the opener of their twi-night doubleheader but dropped the nightcap 1-0 in 13 innings. The victory boosted Boston's lead in the AL East to seven games over Baltimore and New York, while Oakland's lead in AL West was cut to four games over Kansas City. Tiant said he used his fastball more than usual, not going to his baffling changeup until the late innings. "He threw the ball ob- served Jackson. "He didn't throw like Nolan Ryan, but he made the pitches he had to. The man pitched a very ball game." Tiant took in stride the honor of becoming the first 20-game winner in the majors. "Naturally. I'm he said. "You have to be happy to win 20 games. However, every- body deserves credit. All the boys play well behind me. That's the difference." It was Tiant's 20th complete game of the year and his sixth shutout. He struck out six and walked two and was cheered constantly by a packed house of largest crowd at Fenway Park since 1956. 2 Shutouts KOSKBl.'KU, Ore.-Tbe Cedar Oregon vaca- n i-ii'M abruptly here Friday with a 3-0 baseball set- By A1 j irk at the liands of Kockport, ii >i in the American Legion V.'orld Series.

They are from left to right, Steve Van Slyb, Pat Duss and Dennis Tharp. Head Coach Arnold "Tex" McCoy is with the group. The Lions open the season Sept. 6, traveling to rival, Marion. McCoy Not Singing the Grid Blues By Larry Tanner Arnold "Tex" McCoy may be a first year head grid coach. He may have lost a lot of good football players from the 1973 Linn-Mar squad. But Tex isn't singing the blues. He thinks Jie is going to have a good football team. "We are young and inexpe- rienced, but we have a lot of he said. "We have only a couple of kids 200 pounds or over on the whole varsity squad." The Lions do have several things going for them as they prepare for the season opener against cross-town rival Marion on Sept. 6. Linn-Mar has been winning Experience in the Line for the last two years. fThe 1973 team was 7-2 and two years ago the Lions had a 6-2 mark. Winning seasons help Jeani mo- rale. Anolher plus for the new head coach is an undefeated sopho- more team last year. And the coach of that group came with the team to the varsity. McCoy served as soph coach since 1967. le will begin his 13th year in :he Linn-Mar System. Three of those years he was athletic di- rector. Concerning the soph-turned junior group, Tex said: "We expect a lot out of the junior group. They play well and have some good skills." Seven lettermen return from ast year, but only one, Rick Coles, 200-pound senior center, vas a regular. Other line vets returning are )on Gallagher, 180-pound tac- kle, Rick Miller, 160-pound guard and guard Ed Krug, all seniors. 3ack veterans set to go are: Steve Van Slyke, (160) halfback; Dat Duss, (170) fullback or half- jack, and Dennis Tharp, (180) lalfback or fullback. All are seniors. McCoy has two boys, both juniors, competing for the quar- terback slot. They are Von Hoi- lingsworih (160) and Ken Art- hur He feels all positions are wide open and is not ready to name any kind of a starting group. McCoy mentioned several other non-leltermen who will be bat- tling for first team jobs. They included: Kevin Vcatch, senior Brian Barnes, junior strand came back; Kevin Halm, senior lack-' Ccdilr wu.

Cedar Rapids was effective- ly stifled for the first six in- nings, as it only managed two hits in that time. Doug Sher- m a n and pitcher Bruce Barber were the only two C.R. players to reach third base, in the first and third innings, respectively. But the squad's biggest scor- ng threat came in the seventh nning. With one out, Randy Jacobson doubled to left center. Dave Gaskill followed with a ingle over the left fielder's lead.

Homers Let Astros Gain a Split WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis.- The lethargic bats of the Cedar Rapids Astros awoke with a vengeance in the second game Friday night to salvage a split in a double header with the Wis- consin Rapids Twins. For one of the few times all season, the Astros hammered two homers in the same inning. Rafael' Tatis jacked a long three-run homer out of the park, and Mike Jones followed with a two-run blast.

Urchek, a lelterman from Rodtstown, Ohio, suffered the injury in the morning practice session and underwent imme- diate surgery at University hos- pitals.

The group at 136, just three shots out of the lead with holes to go in the chase for a S50.000 first prize, included Tom Weiskopf, Australian Bruce Crampton and Jerry McGee. Weiskopf played his Zwanziger and his 1974 Cfic- velle led through the first six tours before Sanger ducked his '73 Camaro inside going into turn three. Bill confessed that move sur- prised him, "but I couldn't run on the low side, anyway. I was running where I should. My front end was pushing so much that I couldn't go into the comers as hard as I wanted to." The race also served as a baptismal for a new 454 cubic inch engine for Zwanziger.
