Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE IETHBUIDOE HtRALD Auguit 1, W72 Fire home runs, 13 runs batted in Colbert put on By TIIE ASSOCIATED PRESS Sale Colbert a magic act in Atlanta Stadium hut when it was all over, even he believed It. Wasted Ills way Into the record books Tuesday night with n slingshot baseball bat that hurled five home runs into the stands am! drove in a record 13 rims during San Diego I'adiTs1 sweep of a double- header against the Braves. The five homers in the 9-0 and 1L-7 Padres victories tied the mark of Stan Musial of St. Louis In 1954. The 13 HISI the m a j o r -1 e a H u e record of 11 shared Ivy Cleve- land's Efirl Avei ill in 1930, Hos- ton's Jim Tabor in IIWJ and Bal- timore's Boof! Powell in 10GB; nnd the National League stand- ard of 10 by Knos Slaughter of St. Louis tn 1917. He also broke Ihe NL record of 12 UBI in two straight games by Jim Bottcimley of St. Louis in 1924, and Musiul's mark of 21 total bases in a doubleheadcr. "You know, I was there when Stan hit five in old Busch Stad- ium.11 sriid Colbert, who was born in St. Louis, "ilitting five in line day is unreal. I don't re- member Ihe exact date, bill I know il wns a Sunday. The ad-year-old first baseman said: "I'm still so excited; I can't believe what happened. Five liunie runs and 13 bat- led in- Hull's something I didn't think could be iloue in the major leagues. When I hit the [math ore, I said 'this is some- thing wild'." Colberl, whu now leads the major leagues with 30 homers ami 82 HUT: Hit n three-run homer and a j.olo shot in the first game ns well as driving in a nm with one of his two sin- gles. Clay Kirby scattered seven hits in coasting to his shutout victory. In the second game, Colbert pounded a grand slam in the second, n twornn circuit in the seventh his record-tying and breaking two-run homer in Ihe ninth. The fifth homer came on a lugh inside fast ball from Ceeil Upshaw, who Colbert said always got him out.

Moose Jaw defeated Edrnon ton 5-1 in the tourney opener. SAYS -By Pat. Sullivan a MANY TIMES have you lieard the saying, "Records are made to be {jot to thinking about it the other day and my feelings on the mailer arc divided. When Roger Maris hit 61 home runs for the New York Yankees in 196L it didn't excite me. I thought to myself, so what? He bettered Babe Ruth's mark of CO home runs but it took him more games. They put an asterisk after Maris' name in the record book, and that was that. But reading a story about Hank Aaron the other day had my adrenalin pumping full speed ahead. If there is one record I want lo see broken, it is Ruth's mark of 714 career home runs. Don't ask me why. I don't have a .simple answer, let alone one which would explain why I would want lo see one hotter another man's achievement. Aaron has provided the thrills for my generation, while Rulh came well before my time. Ihilli is, of course, a legend but I merely want to see his mark hcalen by a player I can relate to, even if it is just through the boob tube. When the lalk last season got around to who might catch the Babe, it boiled down lo Aaron of Atlanta Braves and Willie Mays, then of the Kan Francisco Giants and now of the New York Mets. If it was Mays leading the ascent on Ruth's pin- nacle I know I would not be as pleased about it. Here again, I really don't know why, but I wouldn't. If it was Ernie Banks of the Chicago Cubs I would feel as I do about Aaron. I'm not pulling for Aaron or Banks a.s my small contribution to the black race. Hays, as you know, is also black. There is a definile feeling of excitement when I talk about Aaron. It does seem strange. By the same token, if you were to suggest that someone surpass Gordie Howe's records in the Na tional Hockey League, it would rankle me to no end. I seriously do not ever want to see any of Howe's marks broken. There it is again. I have met Howe more than once, but have never seen him play except on 'IV. Yet, when Bobby Hull signed with the Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Association, leaving the Black Hawks of Chicago, I felt good about il. Hero was a guy closing in on Howe but he has now been detourec and Ihe Hod Wing superstar's marks will stand for a long time to come, likely forever. Maybe all of us have one particular idol. You cat: tell I have mine. It's difficult to explain how one feels when (he mere mention of an athlete's name causes a tingle. You would think you could outgrow it, but I don't think you can. Maybe, but I doubt it. Possibly all it is, is that I'm fickle and don't have any feelings for the underdogs. Btit then how can you believe that when you know I have been a Calgary Stampeder fan for 20 years?

Rodriguez ambled casually to- ward second, just aching to he tagged out, as the hall was re- ayecl to shortstop Eddie Brink- man, who held the hall for a while and Itodriguez had no re- course hut to step on second base with, a gift double. All that exertion on the mound filled Scherman's spikes with mud and he slowly started to clean t h e rn. That's when Umont went into action. With raindrops still falling on everyone's hearts, he called Martin and Crandall out and told them he'd recommend a Sl.fXJfl fine to American League President Joy Cronin if any more foolishness took place. Skip Lock wood then filed out to end the inning and the Tigers were retired in order in their half, making it an official game. One inning later, the game was called. The Tigers managed only one hit off Lockwood, Mickey Stan- ley's lead riff double in (he sixth. Milwaukee drove rr.okk- Rill Slayback from trie mound in the inning, scoring two runs on four hits. The Brewers scored four times in the fourth on Joe U'lhoud's two-run homer and a two-run single hy Dave May. He-spite the defeat, the Tigers remained games ahead of B a I i m o r e in the American League East when Cleveland's Gay lord Perry blanked the Ori- oles on two singles.
