Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 LtTHbHIUUt nCHALU aoiuruay, ti, Good for a run Hank Aaron establishes another home run record By The ASSOCIATED PRESS No. 719 was also No. 15, which makes Hank Aaron No. 1. again. The Atlanta Braves' star hit the 15th grand-slam home run of his career Friday night, set- ting a National League baseball record and helping the Braves to a 9-3 win over Chicago Cubs. Los Angeles Dodgers topped Montreal Expos 7-1, Pittsburgh Pirates downed Houston Astros 4-3, Cincinnati Reds beat St. Louis Cardinals 4-3, San Diego Padres defeated Philadelphia Phillies 6-2 and New York Mets blanked San Francisco Giants 6-0. Aaron's homer, the 719th of his career and sixth of this season, highlighted an eight- run uprising in the seventh inning and moved him one grand slam ahead of Willie McCovey and the late Gil Hodges. Lou Gehrig holds the major league grand-slam record with 23. Andy Messersmith hurled a three-hitter and Steve Yeager drove in three runs for the Dodgers' fourth straight vic- tory. The Dodgers pounced on Steve Renko for five runs in the first inning, highlighted by Yeager's bases-loaded two- run single and hits by Ron Cey, Willie Crawford and Messersmith, who lost his shutout in the fifth on Ron Fairly's homer. Shortstop Roger Metzger's error on Ed Kirkpatrick's bases-loaded grounder in the bottom of the ninth gave the Pirates their win. Bob Watson had given Hous- ton a 3-2 lead with a two-run homer in the eighth inning. But Fred Scherman hit lead- off batter Willie Stargell with a pitch on the left cheekbone. Gene Clines singled, Ken Forsch replaced Scherman, Manny Sanguillen singled to tie the game and took second BARDSLEY WINS WINNIPEG (CP) Tony Bardsley of Vancouver downed Chris Burr, formerly of Toronto, 9-11, 7-5, 6-4 Friday night in a gruelling two hour match to win the Winnipeg Centennial Invitational Tennis Classic. In the doubles competition, Burr, now playing out of Los Angeles, teamed with Lindsey Straney of Calgary to defeat Bardsley and Jerry Caulfield of Fargo, N.D. 6-4, 6-4. on the throw to the plate. Paul Popovich was walked intentionally to load the bases, then Kirkpatrick hit a hard shot at Metzger, who dropped the ball, allowing Clines to score. George Foster doubled and eventually scored on a double- play grounder in the sixth in- ning, moving Cincinnati past St. Louis. After Foster's leadoff double, Merv Rettenmund was hit by a pitch and Andy Kosco walked. Orlando Pena replaced John Curtis and Dan Driessen hit into the double play that brought Foster home. Dave Winfield hit a tie- breaking home run in the sixth inning for the Padres to help Dave Freisleben win his major-league pitching debut. Freisleben, 22, a right- hander, hurled a four-hitter but lost a shutout in the sixth inning when Del Unser hit a two-run homer for the Phils. Tom Seaver tossed a four- hitter, struck out seven batters and belted a pair of run-scoring singles, pacing the Mets to victory. It was the first victory of the season for the National League's Cy Young award winner, who took a 0-2 record and 6.12 earned-run average into the game. Los Angeles Dodgers' Steve Garvey comes home on a hit to right field by pitcher Andy Messersmith and knocks Montreal Expo's catcher Barry Foote out of the batter's box. Action took place in the first inning of Friday's game at Dodger Stadium. CAREERS But just couldn't put anyone out Mickey Lolich's slider worked By The ASSOCIATED PRESS Mickey Lolich had a good fast ball and slider Friday night but couldn't get anybody out. The Detroit Tigers' left- hander lost 8-2 to Chicago White Sox in an American League baseball game. Lolich 33, has a 0-4 record this season with a 5.82 earned- run average. He has been tagged for 42 hits in 34 innings while walking 15 and striking out only 11 Not the kind of figures you'd expect from a pitcher who won three games in the 1968 World Series and led the majors with 25 victories in 1971. Elsewhere, Baltimore Orioles edged Oakland Athletics 6-5 in 15 innings, New York Yankees nipped Texas Rangers 4-3. Cleveland Indians beat California Angels 4-3, Kansas City Royals downed Boston Red Sox 4-2, and Milwaukee Brewers shaded Minnesota Twins 4-3. Designated-hitter Brian Downing's three-run homer in the fifth inning lowered the boom on Lolich. Dick Allen opened the fifth with a double and scored on Ron Santo's sec- ond double of the game. Ken Henderson was given an in- tentional walk before Downing hit his third homer of the season to give Chicago a 7- 1 cushion. "I had a good fast ball and a good Lolich said, "but 1 was missing the corners by two or three inches." Don Baylor reached third on a three-base error by Oakland centre fielder Bill North in the 15th inning and scored on Andy Etchebarren's sacrifice fly to give Baltimore the win. Reggie Jackson hit his second home run of the game and ninth of the season in the 12th to give Oakland a 5-4 lead but the Orioles, who wiped out a 4- 1 deficit with three runs in the JUST LOOK AT THATSKYA FLO, 'AVE10U EVER SEEN SUCH A BEAUTY _______ ALWAYS 'AS AM PEELINX THAT PEOPLE y AREN'T WATCH IN1 MM) eighth, tied it on Elrod Hendricks' single, a walk and Boog Powell's single. Thurman Munson reached first on an error by third base- man Lenny Handle to open the seventh inning and eventually scored the winning run for the Yankees on Bobby Murcer's grounder, beating shortstop Toby Harralfs throw to the plate Chris Chambiiss' three-run double capped a four-run sev- enth-inning Cleveland uprising against Nolan Ryan Chambiiss" hit chased Ryan, who had taken a two-hit, 3-0 lead into the seventh. After the game, Chambiiss was sent to the New York Yankees in a seven-player swap. The Indians also sent pitchers Dick Tidrow and Cecil Upshaw to the Yankees lor four Kline, Fritz Peterson, Fred Beene and Tom Buskey. Cookie Rojas knocked in one run with a single and another scored on his double-play grounder while Steve Busby went the route for Kansas City, scattering six hits.- Darrell Porter's two-run triple in the eighth inning gave the Brewers a 4-0 lead, just enough to withstand a three- run rally by the Twins in their half of the inning. Tough defensive attack may give Barrie Flyers Allan Cup BARRIE, Ont. (CP) Tough defence has taken Barrie Flyers to the Eastern Canada final of the Allan now they hope it will get them to the Canadian final. The Flyers, after their first Allan Cup, the senior hockey championship of Canada, play the first game of the best-of- five Eastern Canada final tonight against Thunder Bay Twins. Kingpin of the defence is Ernie Miller who was the stingiest goalie in the Ontario Hockey Association Senior A series this season with a 2.57 goals-against average. Miller, who was the league's all-star goalie and who was voted most valuable player in the league, was picked up by Orillia Terriers last year when they won the Allan Cup. And Miller gets a lot of help from Barrie's defencemen, particularly Darryl Sly, the club's playing-coach and also a first-team all-: tar. Sly, a former National Hockey League player, knows what it's like to be on a senior championship club. He was with Gait Hornets when they won the Cup and was also picked up by Trail Smoke Easters when they won the world championship in 1961. Jack Smith and Jim Thomp- son are other key members of the defence, both were secondteam all-stars. In 40 regular season games this year the Flyers gave up just 92 goals, 34 fewer than their nearest competitors in that department, Orillia. However, Barrie has some big shooters up front, notably Corby Adams, the team captain who scored 27 goals and had 32 assists, the club's best, this season. Adams, who was with the Canadian national team in 1969, also has had his name on the Allan Cup, playing for the Hornets when they were winners. Bob Baird, a right winger, tied Adams in goals with 27 and picked up 18 assists and is considered a tremendous opportunist around the net. YANKEES TRADE NEW YORK (AP) New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians completed a seven player American League baseball trade Friday night with the Yankees sending four pitchers, including Steve Kline and Fritz Peterson, to the Indians for Chris Chambiiss and two pitchers. The Yanks also shipped relievers Fred Beene and Tom Buskey to Cleveland while pitchers Dick Tidrow and Cecil Upshaw will accompany Chambiiss to New York. The Flyers finished first in the league for the third time in a row and also led the league in penalties with 506 minutes. The club's bad boy is forward John Lunn who spent 97 minutes in the penalty box while Jack Smith was off for 82 minutes. Two years ago when Barrie played the Allan Cup final in the West, losing 4-2 to Spokane, it had problems getting players to make the trip However, Siy said they won't be a problem this winner of this series meets Cranbrook Royals in none of the players have had to take any time off work for hockey so far this year. Barrie got to the final by beating Brantford foresters 4-1 and then Orillia by the same margin. Sly, who was chosen to> coach the league's all-stars, said a two-week last played on Good hurt the team. He's been holding three practices a week and said any disadvantage of the enforced layoff would be overcome by playing all games in the best- of-five series at home. The second game is scheduled for Sunday and the third for Monday. Should fourth and fifth games be necessary they will be played Wednesday and Thursday.
