Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, August LETHBRIDGE Miners earn two points The Lethbridge Miners travelled to Calgary and managed to come home with a split in a pair of Calgary Ma- jor Men's Fastball League games Wednesday night. The Miners suffered a 6-1 loss to Kramer-Mazda in the opening game of the two-game series against the Calgary club but were able to earn the split by taking the night cap 8- 3. In the doubleheader opener, the Calgary club tallied three runs in each of the third and fifth innings to drop the locals. Dennis Hydychuk with relief help from Rich Mercier was the losing pitcher while Cliff Stuber picked up the win. Gary Morley paced the Calgary hitters with two doubles and a single while George Waselenak belted a double along with a pair of singles in a losing cause. The Miners trailed 3-1 after four complete innings of play in the final tilt, but came back to win the contest by scoring two runs in the fifth, one in the sixth and four more in the seventh. George Santoni went the full route for the Miners giving up 10 hits while losing pitcher Eric Spavor allowed 11. Hydychuk led the locals at the plate with three singles while Jim Tratch added a tri- ple and double. Ed Boytson ripped a pair of doubles and a single for the losers.

Both Ryan of California An- gels and Moret of Boston Red Sox took no-hitters into the late stages, only to lose their grip- Ryan's no-hit bid dissolved in the ninth inning and he lost 2-1 to Chicago White Sox. Moret held Milwaukee hitless until the eighth inning but needed relief help from Bob Veale to beat the Brewers 1-0. After Ryan struck out Jorge Orta, his 13th strikeout of the game, leading off the ninth in- ning, Dick Allen beat out a slow roller along the third base line for a hit. Then the roof fell in, and the White Sox poured across their winning runs against the An- gels' strikeout king. "When you're out of every- thing like we are, you have to try to salvage said Ryan, who has pitched two nohitters in his career. "That's where personal achievement comes in. You' receive more notoriety with no-hitters than with strikeouts." In other American League baseball games, New York Yankees beat Baltimore Orioles 4-3; Kansas City Royals took a doubleheader from Minnesota Twins 7-6 and 5-1; Detroit Tigers nipped Cleveland Indians 3-2 and Oakland A's ripped Texas Rangers 8-4. Cincinnati Reds breathing again Asthma doesn't stop Als' Rodgers TORONTO (CP) Asthmatic Johnny Rodgers wheezed his way to three touchdowns Wednesday night as Montreal Alouettes ran their victory string to three in a row by defeating Toronto Argonauts 42-25 in an Eastern Football Conference game. The Montreal slotback, who missed several practices this week because of severe at- tacks of asthma, twirled backward into the end zone twice for two major scores and ran headlong for another touchdown to lift the Als from a 25-16 half-time deficit before a capacity crowd of The victory left Alouettes in first place in the East with a 3- 0 record, while Argos, Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Ot- tawa Rough Riders are tied for second place with 1-2 marks. The EFC standings may be revised next Tuesday, however, when the Als put their undefeated record on the line at Ottawa. The Argonauts have until Wednesday, Aug. 14 to heal their wounds before tackling the Ticats at home. Peter Muller, also a slot- back, matched Rodgers' out- put by scoring three consecutive touchdowns in the second quarter. All came on passes from starting quarterback Mike DALLAS LOSES DALLAS (AP) Werder Bremen of the West German first division beat Dallas Tor- nado 3-1 before fans Wednesday night. The Tornado, who have already clinched a playoff spot in the North American Soccer League, rested most starters for Saturday night's regular-season finale against Baltimore Comets. Rae who was later replaced by Jim Lindsey. Rae com- pleted nine of 21 passes for 185 yards and had one intercep- tion. Lindsey made a disap- pointing debut for the home team by having his first two passes intercepted. Overall, he completed five of eight passes for 35 yards. Rodgers produced two of his touchdowns on passes from Jimmy for 16 yards and another for 55 yards. Other Montreal touchdowns were socred by Brian Baima and Chuck Zapiec. Don Sweet kicked three field goals and three converts for the winners. The Argos picked up two points on a safety when Jones was tackled in the Montreal zone in the first quarter. They also got a 12-yard field goal from Zenon Andrusyshyn, who also kicked two converts. "Man, I was really sick for a couple of days." said Rodgers, commenting on his respiratory problems. "I was still pretty sick when the game started and I don't remember anything about the last five minutes of the first half." Rodgers gained 152 101 on four catches and 51 on 10 rushes. Top rusher of the game was Steve Ferrughelli of the Als, who gained 129 yards on 22 carries. Muller caught four passes for 70 yards, while Ed Shut- tlesworth led Toronto's attack with 53 yards on 10 carries. MONTREAL 42, TORONTO 25 MTL TOR First downs Yards rushing Yards passing Net offence..... Passes Interceptions by The ASSOCIATED PRESS That body stirring in the West Division of baseball's National League belongs to Cincinnati Reds, who have been buried two or three times already this season but are breathing once again. Not only are they breathing, they're fighting. Jack Billingham and Johnny Bench provided Wednesday night's artificial respiration as the rebounding Reds blank- ed Los Angeles 2-0 to creep within 5V2 games of the division-leading Dodgers. Bench accounted for all of the game's runs with a fourth- inning second game-winner in as many nights against Los Angeles and 22nd homer of the year and Billingham made it stand up with a neat six-hitter for his 14th victory of the season. Elsewhere, Philadelphia Phillies edged Chicago Cubs 3- 2, Pittsburgh Pirates battered New York Mets 10-1, Montreal Expos topped St. Louis Cardi- nals 7-5 and Houston Astros downed Atlanta Braves 6-4. Bob Boone's bloop double chased home two runs and keyed an eighth-inning rally that moved Philadelphia past Chicago. The victory pushed the Phillies to within 1V2 games of first-place St. Louis, which lost to Montreal. Ex-American Leaguer Larry Biittner, making his first start for Montreal since being recalled from the minors last week, contributed a pair of clutch singles, driv- ing in two runs as the Expos trimmed the Cardinals. Steve Renko went all the way for the victory, which ended a four-game losing streak for the Expos and a four-game winning streak for St. Louis. Cliff Johnson climaxed an eighth-inning Houston rally with a two-run pinch homer that lifted the Astros past Atlanta. Lee May's RBI-double had tied the score before Johnson tagged his fourth pinch homer of the season to win it for Houston. Darrell Evans and Dusty Baker homered for Atlanta. Rookie Larry Demery limited New York to three hits for his first major league complete game and Manny Sanguillen and Ed Kirkpatrick slugged home runs for the Pirates. Demery had the Mets shut out on one hit until the eighth inning. Sangullen had a two-run homer and Kirkpatrick a three-run shot as the Pirates moved to within 4Vz games of first-place St. Louis. Ghezzi picks Gary Player 22 271 255 526 13 100 217 278 12-20 14-29 3 2 6-40 11-48 3-3 4-3 4-41 5-35 CLEMMONS, N.C. (AP) Vic Ghezzi, who has walked the fairways with the great and near-great of golf for four decades, appeared star-struck as he watched Gary Player drill his shots like a well-oiled machine on the Tanglewood practice tee. "Look at that ex- claimed the 64-year-old former PGA champion. "I've watched him hit 200 drives and 190 of them were as if they had come out of a mold. I have to pick him to win here." "Me said Sam Swaad, a threat to take No. 4 at an age when some men are groping for a rocking chair. "This is a driver's course. The man who can drive the ball straight will win here. "I have to give the edge to Player. Or maybe even Lee Trevino. They will be hitting irons and three woods off a lot of the tees. There will be no advantage to big hitters such as Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf." THE BENY BOYS HAVE STRIPPED DOWN for ACTION!

Phone 328-1101 Thus the curtain was pulled back for the 56th PGA cham- pionship, starting today over the par 70 course. Player, already winner of the Masters and British Open this year, and Nicklaus, with a record of 14 major champion- ships to his credit, are the co- favorites. Ghezzi, PGA winner in 1941 and runner-up in the U.S. Open in 1946, predicted that accuracy rather than overwhelming power would be the deciding factor during the next four days. "Player is the nearest thing to Ben Hogan I've he said. "He is an indefatigable worker. He hits hundreds of balls every day. He gets more out of his size and equipment than anyone I know. "Now take Trevino. He is more like the Walter Hagen. A lot of color and flair. But few men can manipulate the ball the way Trevino does. He is a great scrambler. "Nicklaus and Weiskopf have more natural ability. They are big and strong and everything comes easy for them. But it's hard to discount a guy like Player. He is so determined. Ghezzi does not shrug off lightly the chances of Snead, although no man has ever won a major crown at such an ad- vanced age. "He has lost a little yardage but is driving the ball as well as he did when he was 25." Snead had practice rounds of 70 and 68 the last two days. Player wound up five days of practice with a sharp 71 in which he experimented with shots out of the eight-inch rough and the myriad bunkers. There are 98 sand traps on the rolling course. TOROS SET DATES TORONTO (CP) Toronto Toros of the World Hockey Association announced Wednesday they will open training camp at Oshawa on Sept. 22. The team will play six pre- season games, including one against New England Whalers in Moncton, on Oct. 11 and one against Minnesota North Stars The Red Sox scored the game's only run in the third inning when Doug Griffin got credit for a triple after Bob Mitchell misjudged his fly ball. Rick Burleson singled Griffin home with the run. Thurman Munson drove in one run and scored what prov- ed to be the winner in New York's victory over Baltimore. The Yanks took a 1-0 lead in the first then added two more runs in the third. The Orioles rallied for three runs in the eighth after Pat Dobson (10-13) had held them scoreless on nine hits. Amos Otis drilled his third hit of the game, delivering George Brett with Kansas City's winning run in. the eighth inning as the Royals defeated Minnesota in the first game of their dou- bleheader. The Royals won the nightcap as Jim Wohlford, Brett and Frank White tripled in runs. Detroit left-hander Mickey Lolich tossed a seven-hitter and the Tigers scored all their runs on five straight singles in the. seventh inning to edge Cleveland.

Who is bearing the brunt of the long NFL strike? By RED SMITH New York Times Service NEW YORK "While the parties to the dispute are rraking speeches about freedom and the future of the game, it is the fans who are bearing and will continue to bear the brunt of this foolishness." Those deathless words appeared Tues- day in an editorial in the Boston Globe, a daily newspaper published within walking distance of the old south meeting house, called the sanctuary of foolishness, and not far from Faneuil Hall, also known as the cradle of foolishness. It was in the latter building that Daniel Webster declared: "It is my living sentiment, and by the blessing of God it shall be my dying sentiment, independence now and independence forever." In the Boston of Webster's day, men set great store by such foolishness. The Globe concedes that the striking players "are certainly right in asserting that their 'freedom' is limited when they agree to play professional football in the National Football League." The editorial suggests a remedy: "They can always try their hand in another business, but even under present limitations most of the players are enjoying enough fame, fortune and financial security to compensate them for the restrictions under which they work." "I am wrote John Mackey. the great end who used to be president of the players' union, "that in the United Slates of America people can still make economic arguments to justify the taking away of a man's freedom and dignity You cannot pay me enough for me to allow you to sell me or trade me." There may be some in the audience who do not scorn freedom as foolishness or regard a minimum salary of as "enough fame, fortune and financial security" to buy off human dignity In fairness to the men who shape the Globe's editorial policy, it should be remembered that perhaps those passing judgment on the case did so with information that was incomplete and in some cases erroneous. This, we are assured on excellent authority, has been known to happen. For instance, the statement that it is the fans who bear the brunt of the foolishness is. to use an expression current in high places, "at variance" with the facts. Over the weekend more than a quarter million fans put their ticket money back in their pockets, and when the owners totted up receipts from exhibition games, about million worth of brunt caught them in the eye. At the same time. Nielsen Ratings of the exhibitions dropped off dramatically, making it clear that the customers are not going to pay or a pop to watch rookies and retreads, and, indeed, won't even tune them in on free television. The lesson for club owners and TV sponsors was enun- ciated years ago by an uncommonly wise man. The quotation usually begins. "You may fool all the people some of the time." but actually the passage starts with a war- ning: "If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem." Striking players complain that they have been ill used by the press, which seldom makes a conscientious effort to present their side of the dispute. It is a valid com- plaint, though it is not a case oi reporters being bought off for a cold hotdog and presweetened coffee between halves A sports writer is often a Ian sun blind- ed by his enthusiasm He regards the game as more important than the human beings who play it. He accepts the status quo because that is the only status he is tamihar with and because the establish- ment tells him it is essential to report the game as we know it." He buys that hogwash because in most cases it is the owner, coach and press agent who have his ear. not the players The daily headlines announcing the defection of this or that established from the picket lines offer an example of the use of the league is making of its public relations force. Terry Bledsoe. acting for the N.F.L. management council, is responsible for these figures, and when you read that 100 of those who have reported are "regulars" or "starters.' it is Terry who designates them so. A paragraph in Monday's New York Times reflected the dispassionate qualitv of his count: "An N.F.L. management council spokesman who keeps tally of returning striking players gleefully said 'We have had better days when more returned, but today was our biggest day for name players reporting in.' That was the day Bob Griese. John HadI and Terry Bradshaw quit the fight League announcements do not mention that three fourths of the membership of the players' association are still out. that some have reported and then walked out. that not quite enough "regulars" to staff three of the 26 teams are in camp, or that the place to be these days is in the World Football League.
