Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 22, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa C. R. Ruins Waterloo Title Hope By Steve Allspach Pointing explicitly and speaking in the vernacular, Larry Elenes described his own personal triumph and that of the Cedar Rapids Astros in sweeping a double header from the Waterloo Royals Friday night in Memorial stadium, 4 2 and 3-1. “I finally got my head on straight and did the things I’m supposed to do,” explained the big righthander after scattering five hits and hurling the Astros to a 3-1 win the nightcap. “I had a long talk with Leo earlier this week and I think it helped. My concentration was better than it has been all year and when I needed a piteh it was there. “Mental attitude is a big part of pitching and I’ve lacked confidence, but maybe this will turn it around for both me and the team,” said the California native, who has the benefit of two years of class AA seasoning. Throwing an assortment of changeups and sliders, plus a bristling fastball when he needed it, Elenes delivered what may be the death knell to any chances the Royals had of capturing the Midwest league North division first half championship. The Royals came to town hoping to use the lowly Astros as a springboard past Wisconsin Rapids, but absorbed their second consecutive double header loss to C. R. and virtually eliminated themselves from contention since the Rapids dealt Appleton a 3-2 setback and dropped the Royals Vk 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 Erie Brown and Jorge Moreno delivered HBI singles and Elenes aided his own cause with an infield out RBL 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 Taverns, Raphael Tatis, Perez, and Brown had singled to give the Astros a 2-0 lead after four innings in the opener, but Waterloo tied it in the sixth with two runs off Luis Sanchez, searching for his seventh win of the year for the Astros. Four singles sparked that surge and Jose Alfaro was called on to rescue the C. R. fortunes 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 Illinois, 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 headfirst dive with the winning run. Runaway Stock Victory for Curt Hansen UPI Telephoto Time Out for Co-Leader Jerry McGee, who shares the second round lead in the American golf Classic at Akron, chats with his wife, Jill, after shooting a second round 69. By Al Miller Curt Hansen’s fears were realized. Net by shot, “I said all week that Darrell I take would blow my doors off in the high groove,” Hansen said Friday night following his victory in the Mid-Season spectacular for late-model stock cars at Hawkeye Downs, ‘‘I really thought Duke would do just that, judging from the way the track has been,” added the Dike pilot, who started on the pole as the season point leader in the 30-lap feature on the half-mile dirt track. “But the track was great! The stickiest I’ve ever seen it. It really held moisture.” The win was a runaway for the 29-year-old, who’s had his share of problems the last couple weeks, starting with the Iowa Challenge Cup at The Downs. Hansen’s 1974 Chevelle never j was headed. When he collected the checkered flag, the second-' place car of Bill Zwanziger of Waterloo was no closer than the middle of the backstretch. Curt credited the hot laps just before I the feature for being able to sort never|out a problem. a long “The car wasn’t handling right, so before the hot laps I had the guys screw some wedge out of it,” he explained. “The car worked beautifully on the first lap of the feature and it really surprised me.” It marked the second time Hansen was in his mount since an accident at Farley two wrTks ago. He also took the feature at Oskaloosa Wednesday night. Then there was the Challenge Cup controversy, when Hansen was disqualified after time trials because his engine was improperly placed. “I’ve had three weeks to cmd off, hut I’ve never seen anything like it in the 11 years that I’ve been racing,” Hansen said. “I thought I was Downs that you normally have a week to correct an infraction, but I was disqualified on the spot. I WC|tv w,lv don’t blame Dale Oegner (race oihmSn Suitors organizer), but .somebody else EBK**JU?,., sure has it in for me.”    fielSoStr* Carp*t* Hansen wouldn't, elaborate Pa,our A*«tor» and it was obvious the Mid „    , , ... , Season triumph was. a soothing ^ ’ at ^ en The Cedar Rapid* J Gaze tin: Sat., June 22. 1974 Ironworkers First Win; 6-Run 7th Major Open w I Pct.
