Twins Lose Fifth Straight Athletics Making Real Bid By THE CANADIAN PRESS Only last weekend the Oak- land Athletics were being counted out as serious pennanl contenders in the American League West. Today, however, they're camping on the doorstep of first-place Minnesota Twins, thanks in part to Campy Cam- paneris. Five games ago the As were third, 10 games back. Since then, the Twins have dropped every game they've played while Oakland has captured them all, including Wednesday night's 11-4 shelling of Cleveland Indians. Coupled with Minneso- ta's 5-3 loss to Washington Sena- tors, that put the As within five games of the top. Campaneris, the Oakland shortstop whose real first name is Bert, led the assault against the Indians, smacking four hits, one-of them a triple. He scored four runs. Frank Fernandez contributed a three-run homer: "I'm just trying to meet the said the 28-y e a r -o I d Cuban native. "I'm not trying for home runs. It's the first time this season I've had torn' hits in a game. PITCHERS EXIT A's manager John McNamara said he "thought it was going to be one of those games" after the Indians grabbed a quick 4-1 lead. "We used up three pitch- ers in three innings. Bob Locker, veteran right- hander reliever, blanked Cleve- land through the final 5 2-3 frames. "I'm not worrying about any- one McNamara added, referring to ttie pennant race. "We're just going out and trying to win every game." In Wednesday night's other American League action, Balti- more Orioles nipped California Angels 5-4, Milwaukee Brewers stunned Detroit Tigers 6-5, the Chicago White Sox trimmed the New York Yankees 5-1 and Kan- sas City Royals split a twi-night double-header with Boston Red Sox, winning the nightcap 4-3 after the Red Sox took the opener 7-4. Meanwhile manager Red Shoendienst wouldn't have given two cents for Bob Gibson's chances before Hie game with San Diego Padres Wednesday night. And the fire-balling St. Louis Cardinals agree. ace had to But before the night was over, the veteran right-hander had chalked up his 16th victory and snapped a major league record in the process. The becoming the first pitcher in history to strike out 200 or more batters in eight Seasons was probably Gibson's easiest task. It came in the third inning when he fanned Nate Colbert, giving him an even 200 for the year. Then, the 34-year-old work- horse had to go 14 innings be- fore subduing the stubborn Padres 5-4. He was reached for 13 hils but also fanned 13, lifting his season total to 210, sending him ahead Of former American League hurlers Walter Johnson and Rube Waddell. "I didn't think I was throwing too good in the Gibson said afterward. I was lucky they were swinging." Parker Respects Edmonton Club EDMONTON (CP) Jackie Parker says Edmonton Eski- mos, unimpressive in two pre- vious starts, will win their share of games in the Western Foot- ball Conference "once their off- ence starts clicking." Parker, who took over as Ewbank Talks With Namath HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) Coach Weeb Ewbank of New York Jets said Wednesday he had spoken to quarterback Joe Namath! and "he's trying to re- solve his problems as soon as possible." It was the first time Ewbank has spoken to Namath since the quarterback failed to report to camp, claiming financial and personal problems were cloud- ing his future. For that reason some signifi- cance was given the call by sources closed to the club, who have offered their services in helping Namath with his prob- lems. "We had a good, amicable said Ewbank. Reverend Scores Win SOUTH MARCH, Ont. (CP) Rev. G. Pinney of Haney, B.C., fired a perfect score to win the Letson match Wednesday at the Dominion of Canada Rifle Asso- ciation matches, but still no grand winners are in sight. The matches, fa the fourth day of target-rifle competition, are at Connaught Ranges near this community about 10 miles west of Ottawa. They end Satur- day. head coach of British Columbia Lions late in. the 1969 season, said he will be looking for an improved offensive performance from the Eskimos tonight when the teams clash for the first time this season in regular league play. Both the Lions and Eskimos will be seeking their second win in the 1970 schedule. A victory either Htih would move it into a second-place tie with Cal- t.ampeoers. Saskatchewan Roughriders lead the WFC with four wins. Calgary is 2-1, Edmonton 1-1 and B.C. 1-2. Winnipeg Blue Bombers are winless in three games. Tlie Eskimos, who whipped the Lions 37-19 in an exhibition game in July at Vancouver-, scored only 25 points in previous starts against Saskatchewan and Calgaf.y. They lost 23-11 to Saskatche- wan with Edmonton quarter- backs Rusty Clark and Don Trull allowing six interceptions. The Eskimos defeated the Stam- peders 14-2 in a game on Aug. 5 but it was mainly their defence which enabled them to win. PROMISED PASSES Edmonton coach Ray Jauch said at the start of the season the Eskimos would rely mainly on a passing attack, and he has stuck to the plan. Edmonton has only 38 yards rushing in two games. In tire air, Edmonton quarter- backs have completed 23 of 66 passes for 300 yards while al- lowing eight interceptions. The Lions, who lost 16-9 to Calgary Monday, have a net off- ence of yards. In first downs, B.C. has 47 compared with Edmonton's 15. Parker said the Lions still have seven players on the in- jured list, including Tom Cass- ese, acquired from Montreal AI- ouettes of the Eastern Confer- e, and Garrett Hunsperger, expected to be reactivated later this month.

Can't Score In Second Half Bombers Come Close, Again WINNIPEG (CP) Winnipeg Blue Bombers came close Wednesday night, but for the third consecutive game, the Western Football Conference team failed to score a point in the second half. As a result, Montreal Al- ouettcs tool; a 16-10 victory and ended up atop the Eastern Foot- ball Conference standings. The Bombers, winless in three starts, are at the bottom of the WFC standings. The Als, EFC doormats for the last several seasons, now have wins over Winnipeg and the powerful Toronto Argonauts, and have achieved respectabil- ity with the maturing of quart- erback Sony Wade. Wade used a good mix of run- ning and passing plays to defeat the Bombers, who, though de- feated, played well. Dennis Duncan and Dick Smith scored the Montreal touchdown-. Pierre Guimtan added a convert and a single, and the remaining two points were scored on a safety touch when Gene Gaines hauled down Bomber quarterback Watly Ga- bler in the end zone. Bob Houmard scored Winni- peg's only touchdown. Gene Lakusiak kicked a single and a field goal. NOT HIS NIGHT Lakusiak had a bad night after hitting his 52-yard field goal in the first quarter. He missed later attempts from 45, 38, 40 and 41 yards out. Ami in the third qoarter, he missed from 33 and 13 yards while trying to salvage three points on good scoring opportunities that fizzled under Montreal's stout defence. Both head coaches thought the Bombers played well. Sam Etcheverry of Montreal said that "when a club loses twice the way the Bombers did, they're 'bound to come alive sooner or later." Winnipeg ccach Jim Spavital expressed pleasure with his club's effort, but said Lakusiak "gets over-anxious." "He kicks real well in prac- tice but gets excited out there in a game. We'll just have to calm him down." Wade completed 15 of 28 passes for 203 yards aind called 21 running plays good for 109 yards. G-abler completed 14 of 24 for 228 yards and steered the Bombers to 102 yards on the ground. THREE RECEIVERS HOT Terry Evanshen, Peter Dalla Riva and Smith combined to catch 14 of Wade's passes, ac- counting for at but eight yards of the Montreal aerial gains. Evanshen was particularly effective on short patterns and Dalla Riva was effective early in the game on long gainers. Both clubs picked up a touch- down as a result of intercep- tions. Wade's first pass of the game was grabbed by Doug Strong at m i d -f i e 1 d and the Bombers scored two plays later. Then, with the Bombers leading 9-7 in the second quarter, Gaines picked off a Gabler pass and the Als went 88 yards in 11 plays for a touchdown. Late in the game, when Win- nipeg was threatening on the Montreal 33, Charlie Collins killed the rally with another in- terception of a Gabler pass. Two games are scheduled in the CFL tonight, British Colum- bia at Edmonton in the Western Conference and Hamilton at To- ronto in the Eastern Confer- ence.

Flood took his first strike while vacationing in Copen- hagen, Denmark, when Judge Irving Ben Cooper upheld base- ball's controversial reserve Sys- tem against Flood in his anti- trust suit. The ruling didn't surprise Flood's backers, and they made ready for another swing, this time in a federal court of ap- peals, and then, if necessary, the U.S. Supreme Court. "All that Judge Cooper held is that it is up to the Supreme Court to over-rule the Supreme said Marvin Miller, ex- ecutive director of the players association, which has sup- ported Flood hi his suit. "I think everyone knew it would be difficult for a district court to over-rule the Supreme Court." "There will, of course, b; an said lawyer Allan Zer- Frier Feels Cubs All Set The L e t h b r i d g e Crighton Cubs have had it more or less their own way in the Leth- bridge Recreation Baseball League so far this season. Doug Frier, coaching the Cubs feels that his club will face top notch opposition this weekend, but thinks his club will do alright. The Cubs will bolster their lineup with three players from the Lcthbridge Miners who just finished their' series in Carman Manitoba for the Canadian Ju- nior baseball championship. Selected from the team were Rob Hoy, Rod Taylor and Randy Maxwell. Roy a third baseman will fill in as a utility infielder while Taylor and Maxwell may see some pitching duties. Taylor, a hard throwing left- hander, is much needed by the Cubs who have only got two experienced right handers ready lor starting duties. Andy Shorthouss and John Peturnia will possibly handle relief dut- ies. Frier also let The Herald know that he is expecting Al Ferchuck a top rated chucker from Saskatchewan Saturday night. Ferchuck is currently pitching for the Unity Cardinals and owns a 14-5 record at this time. Frier stated that Fer- chuck will be in the lineup since he is registered by the team before the registration date. In the hitting department Frier said his team would be well represented by the likes of Dale Stuckey, Athol. Thomas, Jim Campbell. Hob Roy and Howard Heggedal who are all long ball hitters. He also felt that Billy Per- sley and Bruce Gullett would be'hard to beat up at the plate. When asked about the home park advantage, Frier stated, "Tlie Cubs' only advantage will be the grass infield, because the teams up north will be used to the skinned infield which may change the style of their play. The lights will make no difference at all since the tournament has no schedule games played under them." All the Cubs are looking for- ward to the weekend and are anxious to get a crack at the Alberta title. The Cubs will meet the Leth- bridge Miners tonight at 8 p.m. for a regular league game and Mill use this as a tune-up for the weekend series. Former Supreme court justice Arthur Goldberg, another of Flood's lawyers, said "this is the end of the first inning." "The next inning will be in the court of appeals." Flood, a 32-y e a r -o 1 d star centre fielder who has a .293 life-time batting average with St. Louis Cardinals, filed a ?4.1 million anti-trust suit against baseball after the Cardinals traded him to Philadelphia Phil- lies last winter. However, Judge Cooper, in his 47-page decision on the May 19- June 10 trial, upheld baseball's 51-year-old exemption granted by the Supremo Court from ex- isting anti-trust legislation. This reserve system is a set of rules which binds a player to one club unless he is traded, sold or released. "Clearly the preponderance of credible proof does not favor e 1 i m i n a t i o n of the reserve Judge Cooper wrote in his decision. He said the effect of the sys- tem is to "deny him (the player) throughout his career freedom to choose his em- but added that the sys- tem is "reasonable and neces- sary to preserve the integrity of. the game, maintain balanced competition and fan interest and encourage continued investment in player development." However, he also wrote "we are convinced that the conflicts between the parties are not irre- concilable and that negotiations could produce an accommoda- tion wlu'ch would be emi- nently fair and equitable to all concerned." Baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn, while applauding the de- cision, said he has "consistently maintained that the clubs and players can bargain out solu- tions to any problems that arise." Before Flood sought his in- junction on the reserve system and damages and forfeited his salary by volun- tarily sitting out this season, there had been talk of the play- ers and owners getting together to modify the system.
