Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta April 10, LETHBHIDUt IJ Padres9 owner unhappy By THE CANADIAN PRESS A change of owners at San Diego has done little so far to improve the results on the field, but it has worked wonders at the turnstiles. Owner Ray Kroc criticized his Padres before fans Tuesday night when they were in the midst of being dumped 9-5 in their National League home opener by Houston Astros. Elsewhere in NL, Atlanta Braves were shelled by Los Angeles Dodgers 9-2, Cincinnati Reds defeated the previously unbeaten San Francisco Giants 6-3, and Chicago Cubs finally opened their season by blanking Philadelphia Phillies 2-0. The Montreal Expos-Pitts- burgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals-New York Mets games were postponed by bad weather. Kroc grabbed the public-ad- dress microphone with the Padres trailing 9-2 in the eighth inning. "Ladies and gentlemen, I suffer with he told the second-largest crowd in San Diego's history He was interrupted when a naked man jumped out of the stands and dashed across the field. "Get that streaker out of him in snapped Kroc. After commenting on the fiize of the crowd, he added- "I've never seen such stupid baseball playing in my The winless Padres then scored three runs in the eighth, but lost their fourth consecutive game. Cesar Cedeno drove in four runs and Larry Dierker held San Diego to six hits and two runs in seven innings.

Meanwhile, Houston mauled Steve Arlm, Ralph Garcia, Rich Troedson, Joe Mclntosh, Jim McAndrew and Mike Corkins for 15 hits. San Diego pitchers have allowed 34 runs in the team's four defeats. With Hank Aaron, the game's all-time home-run king, sitting it out following Monday night's historic 715th homer, the Braves were no match for Los Angeles Rookie Rowland Office took Aaron's place in the outfield and managed a single in four trips against Don Sutton and Mike Marshall, who held the Braves to seven hits, including Dave Johnson's first home ri'i of the season. Joe Morgan's tie-breaking single with two out in the sixth inning helped Cincinnati beat San Francisco Cesar Geronimo opened the inning with a triple off Tom Bradley, but Cincinnati pitcher Jack Billingham and Pete Rose struck out before Morgan came through. Geronimo drove in one insurance run in the ninth with a sacrifice fly and a bunt single by relief pitcher Pedro Borbon brought home the other one. After having their first two scheduled games postponed in Montreal, the Cubs came home and defeated the Phillies behind Bill Bonham's four-hit, nine strikeout pitching. It was his first major league shutout. Bonham held the Phillies hitless until pitcher Ron Schueler's one-out single in the sixth The Cubs scored both their runs in the first inning on a walk. Rick Monday's double and errors by Schueler and first baseman Willie Montanez AMDVCAPP North All-Stars win, 200 attend banquet Mothballs were the order of the day today following Tuesday night's all star game and awards banquet to close out the Southern Alberta Juvenile League season.

Yankees display streak of a different brand By The CANADIAN PRESS Fans in Tiger Stadium seem to have the impression that streaking is something you do with your clothes off. New York Yankees showed them a different way Tuesday. While one nude man swung from the Scoreboard in centre field and another scampered across the outfield without his pants, the Yankees extended a streak of their own with a 3-0 victory over the Tigers. The victory was the fourth in as many contests for New York, marking the first time since 1945 the team has gone unbeaten in the baseball season's opening four games. Elsewhere in the American League, Minnesota Twins de- feated Chicago White Sox 3-1, Oakland Athletics clipped Kansas City Royals 6-4 and Texas Rangers bombed California Angels 10-2. The Milwaukee Brewers- Cleveland Indians and Balti- more Orioles-Boston Red Sox games were postponed by bad weather. LOLICH LOSES AGAIN A trio of Yankee pitchers held the Tigers to just eight hits while pitching ace Mickey Lolich was being handed his second loss in two starts this season. A crowd of 44.047 braved 38- degree temperatures to watch the Tigers' home opener. A man running naked up and down the steps in the centre field bleachers started the streaking. Then others joined the act, including the score- board acrobat and one other who just took his clothes off and sat in his seat. Gary Sutherland was the only Tiger player to excite the hometown fans, stroking four hits, including a double. Lou Piniella's first-inning single drove in two runs for the Yankees and they added a run in the seventh on Roy White's double and Elliott Maddox' single. Steve Kline, Fred Beene and Sparky Lyle pitched for the winners. Rod Carew backed a strong pitching performance by Bert Blyleven with two singles, two stolen bases and two runs scored in Minnesota's victory over Chicago. In eight innings, Blyleven scattered seven hits and struck out 10, but tired in the ninth and gave way to reliever Bill Campbell.
