Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Koosman picks up third straight win Staub satisfied Mets' appetite By THE ASSOCf ATED PRESS Gourmet Rusty Staub whip- ped up a tasty dish for the power hungry New York Mets and, like starving men, they savored every tasty morsel. Staub, who enjoys puttering around kitchen of his New York bachelor pad, must have been wondering whether he was eating right before finally chew- ing up some friendly Houston pitching Wednesday night. Weighed down by a dreadful l-for-29 slump, Staub snapped out of it with a pair of solo home runs that powered the Mets to a 5-2 decision over the Astros. It was the first time this sea- son that the Mets had more than one homer in a game. They had only six homers all year and five of those belonged to John Milner. What's more, Staub was hitting a woeful .102 going into the geme about one batting percentage point for each thousand dollars of salary he earns. Elsewhere in the National League, Atlanta Braves trimmed Philadelphia Phillies 5-2, Los Angeles Dodgers beat St. Louis Cardinals 5-3 in 11 in- nings, San Francisco Giants shut out Chicago Cubs 5-0, and Cincinnati Reds defeated Mon- treal Expos 7-4. San Diego Padres game with the Pirates at Pittsburgh was rained out. WINS THIRD STRAIGHT Staub's two homers supported a sharp six-hit pitching job by Jerry Koosman, who won his third straight for New York. "The one thing that a ball player misses once he gets out of the game is the elation of success-to have such a bad streak and then such great ela- said Staub. "I just hope I can have a lot more elation this season." Darrell Evans slugged a two- run triple and then scored on Mike Lum's sacrifice fly as At- lanta jumped off to a quick three-run lead against Phila- delphia. Gary Gentry limited the Phillies to five hits until the ninth when he weakened and Phil Niekro came on to save the victory. Gentry also had a pair of singles, setting up one At- lanta run and driving in an- other. The Cubs could have used any kind of hitter against San Fran- cisco's Juan Marichal. The Gi- ants' veteran blanked Chicago, spacing eight hits for his fourth victory in five decisions. Chris Speier and Dave King- man slugged home runs for the Giants. Joe Morgan hit a three-run homer, keying a four-run eighth inning that carried Cincinnat past Montreal. Yankees didn't get much Wood on the ball and over New York Knickerbockers' Bill Bradley lays a shot up over Boston Celtics' Dave Cowans (18) in first period of their National Basketball Association playoff game Wednesday night. Celtics won 98-97 to stay alive as Knicks hold a 3-2 advantage.

RESPONSEaWWy lo you and nature. Cbemagro Limited 77 City Cenlre Drive Mississaugua, Ontario By THE CANADIAN PRESS It was a one-man show as Los Angeles Lakers advanced to the National Basketball Association final Wednesday night but it took a team effort to keep Bos- ton Celtics in contention. The Lakers got 44 points from Gail Goodrich, the smallest man on the floor, as they beat, Golden State Warriors 123-118 to wrap up their best of seven semi-final four games to one at Los Angeles. At Boston, Dave Owens, the NBA's most valuable player, did his thing, John Havlicek gave a typical gutsy perform- ance and then unheralded Paul Silas got into the act to sink New York Knicks 98-97. "Everybody made a contribu- tion." Boston Coach Tommy Heinsohn said after the Celtics, DOW down 3-2. forced a sixth game in the best-of-seven scries Friday night at New York. Cowcns went the marathon route, playing the entire 48 min- utes. The 6-foot-9 centre scored 32 points and grabbed 16 rebounds. Havlicek. the Celtics' captain and leading scorer who missed the fourth game because of a right shoulder injury, came off the bench at the start of the second period and again in the Mud and fourth periods. He {.hpok off pain and played 30 minutes, finishing wilh 18 points, five assists and one rebound. Silas, a veteran forward com- pJding his first season in Bos- ton, scored only nine points, but was the man of the honr. He cashed two free throws with seven seconds remaining and then grabbed a rebtrand, his 2tth of the game, just before the final buzzer. "il Silas' clutch free i throws and bis tap rebound the end that did Heinsohn said. "However, they all were great out there tonight." Walt Frazier led the Knicfcs with 21 points, but had only seven in the second half as Don Chancy hounded him on de- fence. Dave DeBusschere fin- ished with 19 points, while Willis Reed had only 10 and ail- ing Earl Monroe contributed just 11. Goodrich broke an NBA record in leading the Lakers into the final round which they won last year. Goodrich scored 21 points in the third period on 10 field goals and a free throw. The field goal production bettered the league's playoff record for field goals in a quarter set in 1961 by former Laker Elgin Baylor who scored nine. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Wilbur Wood cut the corners of the plate, doling out a star- vation diet to New York Yan- kees. They went away hungry Wednesday while Chicago White Sox star fattened his pitching record. "I get paid to get somebody out and that's what I said Wood, who got almost everyone out in a five-hit, 3-0 beauty over the Yankees. Wood frustrated the Yankee hitters with a crazy Knuckleball that was helped along by the weather, according to New York manager Ralph Houk. "Today was a good day for him, the dead air and the said Houk. "That belps him. His knuckleball was really bouncing around today." TAKES FT EASY "The secret of the knuckleball is to throw said Wood after improving his record to 4- 2. "Some pitchers get in trouble and throw hard, harder and hardest. I just back off a little." In the other American League games, Boston Red Sox nipped Minnesota Twins 4-3; Texas Rangers trimmed Detroit Ti- gers 4-1; Kansas City Royals turned back Milwaukee Brew- ers 3-2; California Angels de- feated Baltimore Orioles 1-0 and Cleveland Indians trimmed Oakland Athletics 1-0. The only bits off Wood were singles by Matty Alou, Horace Clarke and Hoy White before Thurman Munson drilled a ground-rule double down the left-field line in the eighth. Then White collected another single in the ninth. Carlos May hit a home run In he first off Mel Stotttemyre for the only run Wood needed. John Kennedy's run-scoring double in the sixth inning snapped a 3-3 tie and gave Bos- on its victory over Minnesota, telief pitcher Bob Bolin saved the game for the Red Sox by striking out Harmon Killebrew with two out and the bases oaded. GETS OUT OF JAM Jeff Burroughs' third home run of the season and Toby larrah's three singles sup- ported Steve Foucault's dutch pitching as Texas whipped De- troit. Texas starter Rich Hand was relieved in the eighth inning by foucault, who worked out of a bases-loaded jam with one out. Wayne Simpson allowed only three hits before Gene Garber took over to get the last two outs of the game as Kansas downed Milwaukee. It was Simpson's strongest perform- ance since coming to Kansas City from Cincinnati Reds last winter. Bill Singer fired a four-hiUer and bested Dave McNally in a wtcher's duel as California nipped Baltimore. McNally jitched a five-hitter, but lost he gams on Bobby Grabarkcw- lz' run-scoring single in the eighth. Dick Tidrow, who entered the ;ame with an 8.08 earned run average, pitched a two-hitter as Cleveland defeated Oakland.

ITUSEbTOBSEASV ONCE UPON A TIME; BUT NOT NOW-; LATE, PET BUT "YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE THESE TWICE AS MANY CARS COMIN AN1 IT'S BEEN THAT WAV EVER SINCE WAS OLO ENOUGH (HIC) TWICE AS MANV PEDESTSiANS ALL OVER Can't handle Jets Aeros being robbed By THE CANADIAN PRESS Jim Smith, president and gen- eral manager of Houston Aeros, really knows what it's like to be robbed. The World Hockey Associ- ation club executive was recently a victim of burglars who took a television set, radios and cassette tapes containing more than 100 hours of dis- cussions concerning the forma- tion of the WHA from his home. But more important, his club is being robbed on the ice by the Winnipeg Jets goaltending duo of Joe Daley and Ernie Wakely. The stingy aetminders have allowed the Aeros only three goals as the Jets have scored 11 to take a 3-0 lead in the semi- final which they hope to wrap up tonight on Aero ice. In the other series, New Eng- land Whalers and Cleveland Crusaders have each yielded 13 goals but the Whalers have won three games by one goal and will be in the driver's seat tonight at Boston. Wakely, who whitewashed the Aeros 2-0 in the second game at Winnipeg on Sunday will get the call tonight from playing coach Bobby Hull who has alternated his goalies all season, "You can't argue with suc- Wakely said Wednesday of the alternating set-up. "I like it and I can't see any reason to change it now." Daley, who had a 2.89 goals- against average this season and has yet to lose to the Aeros, said it is mentally beneficial to a goalie to know when he's go- ing to play because of playoff pressure. "I'm kind of tired right now so I know Ernie will be in goal and, if the series goes back to Winnipeg, I'll be ready on Sun- day." Houston coach Bill Dineen has said his club played as well as it could in the last two games and "I don't think we can play any better." The Whalers, who have lost only eight of 44 games on home ice this season, will have to win tonight despite injuries to key players. They lead the series 3- 1. High-scoring centre Terry Caffery and penalty-killing spe- cialist John Danby have been sidelined with ailments requir- ing surgery. Caffery, who scored 39 goals and 61 assists over the regular season plus 10 points n. eight playoff games, reinsured his right knee in last Saturday's 5-4 win when he took a hip check from Ray Clearwater the Crusaders. TOYO Steel Belted Construction Points Specially compounded wide, deep tread for long mileage and maximum traction in any weather. Important grooves and siping are extended well down into the shoulder area for increased cornering power. 2 Two rayon belts gfve an added measure of safety and stiffness to the double steel belt, reducing tread squirm to an even greater degree than other radials. 3. Two reinforced steel belts prevent tread distortion, and energy loss thereby increasing tread life and gasoline mileage. The steel greatly reduces punctures and breaks encountered from road hazards and distributes the heat evenly to prevent separation and tire failure. 4. Sidewans on Toyo steel radials are thicker than other radials to prevent damage to their carcass if they are curb-scuffed or used in severe conditions such as rally or off-road traffic. 5 Tough, flexible, radial carcass of two pfies of rayon lets the tire run cooler and absorbs shocks and bumps to give a smooth ride. The radial construction allows the tread to keep a firmer contact patch with the road under cornering, acceleration and braking.
