Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THi IETHMIDOI HIRAID Soturdcy, April 14, Giants remain hot Phils get mileage out of youngster By TIIE ASSOCIATED PRESS Only last year, Larry Chris- tenson was in high school. To- day, he's giving pitching lessons in the big leagues. "It's easier up said the 19-year-old right-hander after he made his major league debut with a five-hitter as Phila- delphia Phillies beat New York Mets 7-1 Friday night. Christenson had a shutout go- ing but lost it with a two-out, wild pitch in the ninth. Christenson, the youngest pitcher in the National League, had plenty of support at bat and in the that's why he thought it was easier pitch- ing in the big league than at Marysville high school in Wash- ington. "They really did said the 6-foot-4. blond. "They -gave me confidence because I had those runs. And they made some nice double plays and some great catches in the outfield." CARDS WIN In Friday's other National League games, St. Louis Cardi- nals beat Chicago Cubs 6-3, San Diego Padres beat Houston As- College rodeo on tap tonight Rodeo action on the college level is slated for the Exhibition Pavilion tonight at 7. The Lethbridge Community College Rodeo Club will be host- ing the second armaul College Moor Rodeo, playing host to college rodeo clubs throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan. Bareback and saddle bronc riding, buU riding, calf roping and steer will be featured. Special events for the gals, in- ehdmg cow riding, will sup- plement the program. Team roping and the wild cow race are also on the agenda. The general public is more than welcome as are the student bodies of the LCC and U of L. tros 54, San Francisco Giant stopped Cincinnati Reds 5-4 and Los Angeles Dodgers beat At- lanta Braves 6-3. The Phillies made life easy for Christenson with a run off Jon Matlack in the first inning two in the fourth arid Deron Johnson's three-run homer in the fifth. When in tight spots, the rookie pitched like a veteran. In the third inning he issued a walk and gave up a single with two out. But he ended the threat by getting Felix Millan on a bouncer. In the eighth, Bud Har-olson singled and Mil- Ian walked with one out before Christenson worked out of that spot by getting the next two batters on bouncers. Ted Sizemore's double snapped a 2-2 tie in the seventh inning and helped St. Louis to its victory over Chicago. The Cards, who scored four runs in the decisive inning, won their first game of the season follow- ing five defeats. ENDED DUEL Chicago's Milt Pappas and St. Louis' Rick Wise were locked in a tight pitching duel until the Cardinals settled matters with their explosive inning. Pinch-hitter Jerry Morales capped a four-run rally with a two-run double in the last of the ninth inning to lead San Diego past Houston. Morales' game- winning Ht off reliever Fred Gladding made a loser out of Houston starter Don Wilson, who had carried a 4-1 lead and a three-hitter into the ninth. Gary Matthews' rus-scoring double capped a three-run rally in the eighth inning that lifted San Francisco to a comeback victory over Cincinnati. The Reds had taken a brief 4-2 lead in the top of the inning on Tony Perez' two-run homer. Bill Buckner hit Ms first home run of the season and sin- gled twice to lead Los Angeles over Atlanta. The victory ended a four-game Dodger losing streak. Tommy John, who has both of the Los Angeles victories this season, scattered 10 hits and struck out six batters before Jim Brewer took over in the eighth. Bowling CAPRI BOWL SENIOR CITIZENS C.

Kemmett, reading his invitation, is part of Canadian team which will compete wilh swimmers from the U.S. and various European countries. Beard going to get tough LOS ANGELTS (AP) Quarterback Roman Gabriel said Friday his contract -with Loe Angeles Earns is null and void and virtually admitted that his threat to play summer ball m Las Vegas was a ploy to has- ten a trade to another National Football League team. The veteran star of 11 seasons the Rams said his contract with the club has addendum to the standard NFL pact and that he no longer was bound by the over-all provisions. Gabriel has two years left on his contract, but it was signed when the late Dan Reeves was president of the club and the quarterback holds it is not vsBd under the new ownership of Carroll Rosenbloom.

"I have reason to distrust them, so it makes it difficult to play for them. "I am a little upset and of- fended about it being said that I am afraid to compete against John HadI the quarterback the Rams acquired from San Diego. In the past 11 years, I have competed against a minimum of 14 quarterbacks in order to maintain my position as a starter." Ed Masry. his lawyer, feels that Gabriel has a right to play in Las Vegas or anyplace else. And the quarterback main- tains that ?ome other NFL team can sign him "without eivine an arm and a leg" io the Rams. He says at least two XFL teams have offered three front line players and draft choices in trade but have been turned down. PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) Hoioero Blancas had the lead but his friend and sometime room-mate Frank Beard had what could be a new lease on his golfing Efe going into to- day's third round of the Monsanto Open. "That's the veiwajs Beard breathed with obvious re- lief after storming into second place with a five-under-par 66 in Friday's second round. It was the best effort of the bright, sunny day. "That's better." he said again, then added: "But any- thing would be better." The 33-year-old Beard, now in his 12th season on the pro tour, suffered through his poorest year in more than a decade in 1972 and has been trying to fight his way out of a nagging slump. FRUSTRATING YEAR "It's been very Beard said. 'Tve played better than I thought I was capable for the last six months. "But I've putted very badly. I'd three-putt for bogeys, miss putts for putted very badly." Beard, long noted as one of the outstanding putters on the tour, got that portion of his game back under control Fri- day as he one-putted 10 times and posted a 36-hole total of 138. That was two back of the swarthy, easy-going Blancas. Happy Homer improved his first-round lead to two strokes with a a shaky fin- 136, six par for two trips over the 6.679-yard Persacola Co'jntry Club course.
