Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 29, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Limits Boston to 3 Singles, Gaylord Notches 14th in Row The Odar Rapids Gazette: Sat., June 29. 1974 By llcrselicl Nisscuson Associated Prat* Sports Writer They had a friendly little .shower for Gaylord Perry in Cleveland Friday night hut it .simply poured on the Boston Bed Sox. After heavy rains held up the start of the game between the Indians and lied Sox for an hour, the unperturbed Perry went out and stopped Boston 2-1 on three measly singles for his 14th consecutive triumph, just two short of the American League record. “The rain delay didn’t bother me,” he said. “We’ve had a lot of rain this spring. I’m getting used to it.” when Dick Drago walked Leron Lee with two out in the ninth inning and George Hendrick doubled    him    home,    but    they may have lost All-Star catcher Carlton Fisk for the season. In scoring the winning run, Lee slid into Fisk, who was blocking    the    plate,    and    the catcher suffered ligament damage to his left knee which probably will require surgery. Elsewhere in the American league,    the    Oakland    A’s trounced the Kansas City Royals 7-1, the Minnesota Twins flattened the Chicago White Sox 10-3, the Detroit Tigers out-slugged the Milwaukee Brewers 9-7 and    the    Texas    Rangers Not only did the Red Sox suf- downed the California Angels lifer their third loss in a row 3. The New York Yankees and Hansen Holds Off Dake To Top Stocks Curt Hansen By Al Miller Curt Hansen appreciated the # traffic problem. Darrell Dake didn’t. That’s because Hansen, the young pilot from Dike, captured the 25-lap late-model stock car feature during the All-Iowa fair at Hawkeye Downs Friday night. Hansen and Dake, the veteran chauffeur from Cedar Rapids, were racing wheel to wheel, with Dake on the inside, through the 23rd tour on the half-mile dirt track. Then came the traffic problem, with lapped cars coming into the picture. “As long as I stayed high, Dake didn’t have much of a chance,” said Hansen, who post-points are not being awarded ed his second straight feature for All-Iowa fair events, triumph at the Downs and is the Dake said “the traffic messed track point leader, although me up! I had no place to go. I Tatis Helps Sambito Celebrate Birthday 4-3 By Steve Allspach Instead of the traditional birthday cake, Rafael Tatis conveyed his best wishes to Joe Sambito with a base hit. For certain, Sambito wanted that way. Tatis delighted Sambito and 361 fans in Memorial stadium Friday night with a sharp single in the bottom of the ninth inning that scored Alex Taveras from third and gave the Cedar Rapids Astros a 4-3 win over! Decatur. Tatis' single, his second hit of the game and seventh safety in the last two games, came off reliever Barney Wilson and gave the Astros a split in the abbreviated two-game series with the Commodores. on opening day. “They’re tough enough getting them one at a time.” It was the fourth victory in a row for the Indians and left them VU games behind first-place Boston in the American League’s East Division. “This is a real big win for us,” said Manager Ken Aspro-monte. “It means an awful lot to this type of club because now they know they can beat the league leaders. We have to beat them if we want to stay in contention in our division. Nobody else is going to beat them for us.” Many in the crowd of 33,020 stood in the rain for more than two hours to get into the park. “Every time I heard them cheer and saw them stand on their feet it made mc reach back more and come up with something I didn’t think I had,” Perry said. A’s 7, Royals I Bert Campaneris collected a triple, double and two singles, drove in two runs and scored was running well and I could!twice while rookie right-hander; drop back and pick him (Han-;Glenn Abbott stopped Kansas sen) up whenever I wanted, but City on six hits.

The Indians gave Perry a 1-0 lead in the fifth inning on Charlie Spikes’ lith home run and the Red .Sox tied it in the sixth on a walk, sacrifice and Cecil Cooper’s single. Perry is one away from the Indians’ consecutive victory record of 15 set by Johnny Allen in 1937. The American league mark of 16 was set by Walter Johnson and Joe Wood in 1912 and matched by Lefty Grove in 1931 and Schoolboy Rowe in 1934. The major league record is 19. “Tonight I worried about No. 14 and the next time I’ll worry about No. 15,” said Perry, who suffered his only 1974 setback How    Fisk Was    Injured —UPI Telephoto Nova was getting around faster than his 1974 Laguna. “But I had the better groove (high),” Curt explained. “He tried me low, but I could get more speed coming out of the corner running high. I knew I could get Dake on the straights if I didn’t make a mistake.” He didn’t, and for the second triple, a single by Sal Bando and Reggie Jackson’s double. They chased Nelson Briles, just off the disabled list, in the fifth and scored four times on RBI singles by Campaneris, Gene Tenace, Angel Mangual and Dick Green Boston catcher Carlton Fisk suffered “major ligament damage" to his left knee in this collision with Cleveland's Leron Lee in the ninth inning Friday night. Tho run allowed the Indians to win 2-1. Didn't Plan on Playing, W eiskopf Leads Western OAK BROOK, 111. (AP) — the new layout was 141. That’s Longshot Gary Sanders led a row before the British Open.
