Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, Apii! i3, 1973 Lolich throws wild So McNally is in a rut By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Dave Mc.Yally is in his April rut again. Baltimore Orioles' veteran left-hander barely missed a nine-inning no-hitter against De- troit Thursday, finally getting a 10-iraiing, three-hit 1-0 victory over the Timers thanks to a throwing error by Detroit pitcher Mickey Lolich. It was McNally's second start of the American League sea- his second three-hit shutout. He started off last season with a pair of shutouts, a one- run game and two more shut- outs before tailing off to a 13-17 record. In other games, Chicago White Sox came from behind to beat Oakland 6-3, New York Yankees stopped Cleveland In- dians 5-0, Texas Rangers de- feated Kansas City Royals 4-0 and Boston's game at Mil- waukee was postponed due to snow and cold weather.

After Men' Retter.irxund walked. Bobby Grich bunted Lolich fielded the ball and triet for a forceout at third, but his throw was wild and Belanger came around to score. McNally handcuffed the Ti gers over the first nine innings when the only Tieer hit was a Ely by shortstop Ed Brinkman which Baltimore right fielder Rettemmmd lost in the sun. Willie Horton led off the bot- tom of the 10th with a single of McNally. who retired the nex two batters. Tke Brown then walked and Tony Taylor beat out an infield single to load the bases, but Orlando Pena re- lieved McNally and got pinch hitter Gates Brown to hit into a game-ending forceout. Lolich, 0-2, gave up nine hits and four walks, but pitched out of every the final one. Ken Henderson hit a grand slam home run in the eighth in- ning to lift the White Sox over Oakland. The Athletics, who got a two-run homer from Gene Te- nace in the second inning, had taken a 3-2 lead in the top of the eighth when Chicago relief pitcher Forster walked Sal Bando with the bases loaded. But the White Sox came back in the bottom half of the inning, loading the bases on a single by Pat Kelly and walks to Carlos May and Bill Melton. Then Hen- derson, acquired from San Francisco in a major off-season trade, delivered his bases- loaded blast off Rollie Fingers. The Yankees' Steve Kline blanked Cleveland on a pair of singles, by Jack Brohamer in the fifth inning and George Hendrick in the sixth.

But this is the first time they've ques- tioned my pads and I've been making that style for 40 years.' Dryden's pad measures 10% inches. Kenesky pointed to several factors that could increase the width after a pad leaves bis shop. "Goalies wear fcneepads un- der the goalie pads because of the slapshot and that pad helps stretch the goalie pad wider. Or maybe the goalies don't buckle their pads up tight enought. Some of them leave them real lose. Just falling down on the ice forces the pad wider at the knee. "Some goalies like Johnny Bower -would push the pads down which makes them wider, too." Ron Andrews, NHL statisti- cian, said: "That's the first time we've had a pad measure in the play- offs. It will likely start a new fad which will probably con- tinue throughout the playoffs." The 10-inch pad rule has been in effect since the 1930s. Ke- nesky first made the pads 12 inches wide and the NHL adopted that width.

Do your friends a flavour. I h McCovey rips two in Giants' win By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS When Willie McCovey speak: everyone listens respectfully When he hits, everyone watche admiringly. McCovey gave the crowc something to watch Thursdaj with two home runs in one in ning that carried San Francisci Giants to a 9-3 victory ovei Houston Astros. After the National League baseball game, the 6-foot-4, 230 pound first baseman spoke softly as reporters listened the clubhouse. "It didu't even occur to me that I was coming up again in the same saic McCovey. It occurred to the Astros though.' "What can you do about McCovey can hit them ou against said Houston manager Leo purocher. don't mind losing one lik that." DROVE IN FOUR McCovey's two shots, hi third and fourth of the season drove in four runs and high lighted an eight-run fourth in ning that sewed up the gamee. In other National Leagu games, Montreal Expos trimmed Philadelphia Phillies 5-3, Pittsburgh Pirates tumec back Chicago Cubs 6-0. New York Mets nipped St. Louis Car dinals 2-1, Atlanta Braves bea San Diego Padres 3-2 and Cin cinnati Reds trimmed Los An geles Dodgers 5-2. McCovey's feat marked the first time in 24 years of base- ball that a National Leaguer has hit two homers in one in ning. Sid Gordon did it July 31 1949, when the Giants were ir New York. California's Rick Reichardt was the last man to do it in the American League in 1966. The shots represented the 32nd time in McCovey's career that he has hit at least two homers in a game. HAS FOUR The slugger, who beat the As- tros Wednesday night with a two-run homer in the ninth in- ning, improved his season's marks to four home runs anc seven runs batted in in seven games. McCovey's power show made it easy for starter Tom Bradley who secured his first Nationa League victory, Houston's Ken Forsch, victim of McCovey's firs_t clout of the inning, was the losing pitcher. Elks out after 5-4 setback Two goals on two different occasions cost the Lethbridge Midget "A" Elks the Alberta ti- tle. The two goals came at the end of both games in the Al- >erta midget final with Calgary Warriors. Tuesday evening at Hender- son Ice Centre the Cowtowners ;ot past the Elks 6-4 and then ftursday evening in Calgary they once again scored a two- goal. 9-7, victory. The 13-9 total-goal gave the Calgary club a berth n an all-midget tournament in Prince Edward Island next week. Wendel Vysohlid opened and losed the scoring for Calgary and found time to score one in letween. His three goals rfemented a effort by; Dave Hager. Single markers went to Boh Dear, Bob Lay-! cork. tTim Moore and Bemie Syrenne and Rick Col- er paced the Elks with two 'oa3s each white singles went to oe Mc3i. Mark Baldry and Grant Marchuk. Elks outshol Calgary 43-33 while taking seven minor pen- allaes as compared to eight for Calgary. The two clubs split two majors. The locals will see action next weekend as they play host to seven other clubs in a three- day tournament. Jorge Roque's first major league grand slam homer keyed a five-run first inning that car- ried Montreal past Phila- delphia. Roque's smash spoiled Jim Lonborg's debut before the Phillies' home fans and saddled the former American Leaguer with his first National League loss. Ron Hunt started Montreal by doing what he does naturally- getting hit by a pitch. Tim Foli sacrificed and it appeared that Lonborg was out of trouble when Mike Jorgensen flied out for the second out. But Lonborg walked Ron Fairly and Ken Singleton to load the bases and Roque hil one out of sight over the left field fence. Coco Laboy thei laced another homer in almost the same spot to make it 5-0 Montreal. Home runs by Milt May and Manny Sanguillen and the four. hit pitching of Bob Moose helped Pittsburgh maintain its perfect record with a victorj over Chicago. Ferguson Jenkins continue to have his run of bad luck with Pittsburgh. The Pirates beat the Cub ace four times without a loss last year. ELRICH SPORT W L Pet.
