Mantle a long-ball-hitting outfielder set a number of official baseball records Ford won 236 and lost 106 of his regular season games for a 690 percentage and a 2 74 earned-run average His win- ning percentage still tops hurl- ers with more than 200 deci- sions and his 332-3 consecutive scoreless innings of World Series pitching also remains a record The switch-hitting Mantle hit 536 home runs and drove 509 runners home over 18 in- jury-plagued years in New York He still holds many of the regularseason and World Series records which brought him election to the Hall in his first vear of eligibility No official records exist in Bell s case but his greatness approaches folklore in Negro League history He stole 175 bases during the 200-game 1933 season and hit 480 in another during a

This man is said Nicklaus "He hardly made a mistake out there He hit almost every fairway and every green Trevino fired a final score matched by a 72-hole score of 276, four-under-par Nicklaus finished at 277, with four other players two shots back at 279 They were 62- year old Sam Snead, 69, Dave Hill, 69 Hubert Green, 70, and Bobby Cole of South Africa, 71 Gary Player, winner of the Masters and British Open this vear, never got untracked He shot 70 for an even-par 280 and seventh place Al Geiberger had the day's best round at 66 and was alone in eighth place, followed by John Mahaffey, 67, and Don Bies, 70-tied at 282 John Schlee who led through the first two rounds, fell back with a The final round Sunday evolved into a three-way bat- tle among Trevino Nicklaus and Cole, with Trevino never once losing the lead although young Cole, 26, pulled even five times The South African kept heat on Trevino until the 17th hole where he hooked his drive into some trees eliminating him- just behind him Trevino and Nicklaus prepared for the exciting climax, accentuated when Trevino three-putted the 17th green Trevino was on the green, 30 feet from the cup He hit a tentative stroke leaving the ball three feet short Then he missed the three-footer by a couple of inches, drawing groans from his supporters "My mind said hit it Trevino said of his original putt "but my hands wouldn't move The sudden lapse cut his over Nicklaus to one shot and tension mounted as the two headed toward the 440- yard, uphill closing hole Miners Alberta champs, win title in Edmonton EDMONTON (Special) Lethbndge Miners captured the 1974 Alberta senior A men's fastball crown by whipping Edmonton Playboys 4-1 in the championship final Sunday The Miners, who narrowly missed winn- ing the Alberta title last year, made no mistake this time around as they went through the two-day double-knockout playoff finals unscathed They were, without a doubt, the best club in the five-team provincial finals which also included the defending cham- pion Edmonton Royals, Camrose and Calgary Cowley-Keith En route to their first Alberta title ever, the Miners defeated the Playboys 2-1 and Camrose 4-2 Saturday and wrapped it up with their 4-1 victory in the championship final Sunday The Miners' two wins Saturday had put them in the driver's seat Sunday as the Playboys needed to defeat them twice in order to win the title In the championship final, the Miners needed a comeback victory to win the 74 title and a berth into the Canadian finals slated for Aug 23-24 in Victoria, B C They trailed 1-0 after the first complete inning of play but managed to rally for three runs in the third frame and a single run in the fifth 6 George Santoni was superb on the mound for the Miners as he gave just two Edmonton hits in going the distance But despite his brilliant pitching feat, Santoni was over-shadowed by the boom- ing bat of Miners' leftfielder George Waselenak Waselenak, who was named the most valuable player in the weekend tour- nament, blasted two home runs off losing pitcher Ken Cherney in the championship final which accounted for all the Miners' runs In their other two matches over the weekend Santoni rifled a two-hitter against the Playboys and Darrell Leavitt gave up five hits while leading his team- mates to their win over Camrose Larry Tratch paced the Miners at the plate in both games as he rapped three singles in the first tilt and two more in the second Tratch, who batted 444 in his three games, was selected to the all-star team for his outstanding play along with Santoni who registered two wins on the mound Meanwhile in other games held in the tourney the Playboys blanked Calgary 4-0, Camrose edged Edmonton Royals 1-0, Calgary eliminated the Royals 3-0, Playboys snuck past Calgary 2-1 and the Playboys defeated Camrose 4-1 in the "B" final Where was his putter? CLEMMONS, N C (AP) Lee Trevino almost got caught with 15 violation that carries a two-stroke Sunday's final round of the PGA national golf championship we left the fifth Trevino said after his victory over Jack Nicklaus, Jack couldn't find his putter He didn't have it His caddy didn't have it It wasn't in his bag He coujdn't find it and he was looking all over "It was in my bag "When he'd finished put- ting, he'd come over to the side of the green and just stuck it in my bag I told him I'd take the two strokes if he d play the rest of the way without using the putter Panasiuk caught the bug SASKATOON bug and a missed course record weren't enough to deter Bob Panasiuk of Windsor, Out, from winning the Sas- katchewan Open golf tourna- ment Sunday Panasiuk was shooting for a 29 on the back nine but missed by one and had to settle for a tie for the course record with his five-under-par 65 It brought him top prize money of 100 During the last few holes Panasiuk opened his mouth and swallowed a bug which took some violent coughing to get out of his throat Panasiuk predicted Satur- day it would take a 65 to win and almost cut that by one but missed a three-foot putt for a hirdie and that back nine record on the 18th hole Shooting 30, he said, just wasn't the same as making the 29 mark on the nine Close behind the winner's 203 for three rounds was Rick Sprouse of Fallbrook, Calif, with 206 Sprouse was visibly happy with second spot and in prize money He said he had just been married in June and was finding the budget stretching a little tight until Sunday's win Panasiuk now stands as the first Canadian to qualify from the national tour for the 1975 Canadian Open at Montreal, having amassed for the season, ahead of veteran Moe Norman of Gilford, Ont, who collected to fall just short of an total ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES 2 j 2 i NATIONAL LEAGUE East St Louis Philadelphia Pittsburgh Montreal New York Chicago Los Angeles Cincinnati Atlanta Houston San Francisco San Diego TODAY'S GAMES San Francisco Williams (13) at Philadelphia Lonborg (12 11) Pittsburgh Reuss (11 9) at Cincin- nati Kirby (7 6) Los Angeles Messersmith (13-3) at New York Parker (3-10) San Diego Greif (6 13) at St Louis Curtis (611) SUNDAY'S RESULTS San Francisco 5 6 Chicago 3-4 Atlanta 6 Philadelphia 5 Pittsburgh 8 San Diego 1 Cincinnati 10 New York 4 Los Angeles 3 St Louis 1 Montreal 5 Houston 2 SATURDAY'S RESULTS San Francisco at Chicago ppd ram Cincinnati 5 New York 3 Los Angeles 6 St Louis 2 San Diego 8 Pittsburgh 4 Atlanta 11 Philadelphia 4 Montreal 2 Houston 1 LEAGUE LEADERS AB 481 454 351 399 372 446 345 394 384 313 TODAY'S GAMES Kansas City Bnles (3 4) at Detroit Lolich (12 14) Milwaukee Colborn (6 10) at Texas Hargan (9 6) Boston Moret (6-4) at California Ryan (14 12) New York Dobson (10-13) at Oakland Hunter (16 9) Only games scheduled SUNDAYS RESULTS Cleveland 3 Chicago 2 Minnesota 5 Baltimore 4 Kansas City 5 Milwaukee 2 Boston 2 Oakland 1 New York 5 California 4 Texas 9 Detroit 0 SATURDAY'S RESULTS Chicago 5 Cleveland 1 Minnesota 5 Baltimore 1 Oakland 5 Boston 3 Kansas Citv 8 Milwaukee 5 Texas 5 Detroit 4 New York 2 California 1 LEAGUE LEADERS AB Carew Mm 448 R H Pet 66 165 368 42 99 340 52 115 323 59 110 315 64 114 312 49 114 311 55 132 310 68 117 310 66 127 307 76 121 Allen 306 31 R H 67 177 67 147 38 113 62 128 53 118 75 141 49 109 52 123 50 117 51 95 Pet 368 324 322 321 317 316 316 312 305 304 Garr All Garvey LA Montanez Phi Gross Htn Zisk Pgh Brock SL R Smith SL Buckner LA Cardenal Chi Geronimo Cm Home runs Wynn Los Angeles 27 Schmidt Philadelphia 25 Runs batted in Schmidt Bench Cincinnati 88 Cedeno Houston 84 Pitching (12 decisions) Messer smith Los Angeles 13-3 813 John Los Angeles 133 813 Caldwell San Francisco 11 3 786 AMERICAN LEAGUE East W 63 58 57 56 54 53 West 67 60 60 58 57 45 Hargrove Tex 291 McRae KC 356 Orta Chi 349 Jackson Oak 365 Handle Tex 367 Rudi Oak 426 Yastrzemski B 378 Burroughs Tex 414 D Allen Chi 395 Home Runs D Burroughs 22 Runs Batted In Burroughs 95 D Allen 83 Pitching (12 decisions) G Perry Cleveland 15-7 682 Tiant Boston 17 8 680 CFL Western Conference W L F A Pit B C 3 0 78 48 6 Edmonton 2 1 74 37 4 Sask 2 1 55 72 4 Winnipeg 0 2 28 55 0 Calgary 0 3 44 67 0 Eastern Conference Montreal 3 0 82 54 6 Hamilton 1 2 66 72 2 Ottawa 1 2 50 64 2 Toronto 1 2 66 74 2 Boston Cleveland Baltimore New York Detroit Milwaukee Oakland Kansas City Texas Chicago Minnesota California L 51 54 57 57 61 62 49 53 57 56 60 71 Pet GBL 553 TD C 518 500 496 470 461 578 531 513 509 487 9% Tfi 8 10V? 388 22 LEAGUE LEADERS- Cutler E 07 MacMillan B C 09 Young B C 30 Robinson C 04 Lefebvre E 20 Berg S 07 Scott W 20 Harris B C 20 Eley BC 20 Thomas C 20 Warnngton E 20 Mazurak S 20 Thompson S 20 FGS Pts 6 0 25 5 23 0 18 1 17 1 13 0 13 0 12 0 12 0 12 0 12 0 12 0 12 0 12 DUAL STEEL RADIAL TIRES MILE Written Guarantee In Hall of Fame Mickey Mantle, left, and Whitey Ford were induct- ed into the Baseball Hall of Fame today ELRICH TIRES LTD.
