Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Expos, Bailey hammer Reds, 4We needed By THE CANADIAN PRESS Bob Bailey appears to be re- turning to his old form, much to the delight of Montreal Ex- pos. Bailey hit two home runs and had five runs battled in Friday that led the Expos to an 11-3 win over Cincinnati Reds. "This is the nearest he's been to 1970." said Montreal manager Gene Mauch. "In '70 he had a year in months." In 1970, Bailey had a career high batting average of .287 while hitting 28 home runs. After the game, Reds man- ager George (Sparky) Anderson could only wonder out loud as to how his charges could just finish a 5-1 road trip and then gave up 16 hits. "We didn t need Anderson said as the Reds failed to gain ground in their battle to overtake the coasting Los Angeles Dodgers. In other National League games, Pittsburgh Pirates edged the Dodgers 4-3 in a clash of division leaders, San Francisco Giants beat St. Csonka, O.

Tight end Jim Mandich scored the Dolphins' first touchdown on a 23-yard pass from Bob Griese and Csonka got the other two on one-yard runs.

Dennis Blair, 8-6, was the wimning pitcher, but he need- ed relief from Chuck Taylor in the ninth to quell a late Reds charge, when they scored their three runs. Blair loaded the bases on three singles, and George Fos- ter drove in two runs when he collected another single.

Saturday, August LETHBRIDGE Pease leads by two in junior finals Broken pass play Ken Ellis (48) of Green Bay Packers leaps high in the air to knock down a Bob Griese pass Friday night. Ryan chalks up 300-plus for third straight year THE CANADIAN PRESS Nolan Ryan made baseball history again Friday night, and his California Angels team-mates celebrated by presenting him the gift he appreciates Frank Robinson supplied the offence with a pair of two- run homers for a career total of 571. Ryan, 17-14, fanned nine bat- ters, surpassing the 300 mark for a major league-record third straight season, as the Angels beat Milwaukee Brewers 9-2. In other American League games, Minnesota Twins beat Boston Red Sox 3-2. New York Yankees defeated Chicago White Sox 8-5. Oakland A's downed Detroit Tigers 10-5. Baltimore Orioles whipped Kansas City Royals 9-2 and Cleveland Indians beat Texas Rangers 7-3. Ryan's victory was his sev- enth in his last 12 decisions, and the Angels' nine runs were four more than they had managed in all five of his defeats in that span. He allow- ed only nine earned runs and 24 hits in 371-3 innings in the five games he lost, each by one run. 'It was a good thing I got a lot of runs tonight because it was a below-average perform- ance by Ryan said. "I didn't have a good fast ball and I was wild with it. BEGAN THE VICTIM Ryan, who entered the game with 295 strikeouts this season, recorded No. 300 by- fanning Mike Hegan in the fourth inning. Ryan shrugged off a 15-minute rain delay in the eighth, and ended the game by striking out Don Money for a season's total of 304. Ryan tied a major league mark by fanning 19 in a nine- inning game earlier this year, and struck out the same num- ber in 13 innings against Boston and in 11 against Detroit. He struck out 329 batters in 1972 and a single-season, ma- jor league-record 383 last year for a two-year total of 712. also a big-league record. The only other modern-era pitchers with successive 300- strikeout seasons were Rube Waddell in 1903-04 and Sandy Koufax in 1965-66. Bert Blyleven. 13-15. struck out 14 Boston batters and allowed four hits in pitching the Twins over the Red Sox. COMPETITIVE SWIMMERS to join the LETHBRIDGE AMATEUR SWIM CLUB Outdoor Training Begins Sept. p.m. CIViC CENTRE TRACK PJayer, Palmer miss cut ATLANTA (AP) Lou Graham led the way into today's tiu'rd round of the Tournament Players Championship after golfing greats Gary Player and Ar- nold Palmer failed to make the cut and leading money winner Johnny Miller withdrew. Graham, a 36-year-old tour veteran of 11 years, shot his second straight 67 Friday for a 134 total and a one-stroke lead over J. C. Snead. Snead finished the 6.883- yard. par-72 Atlanta Country Club course with a course- tying 64 on opening day. But the nephew of Sam Snead could on'y muster a 71 Friday. Jack Nicklaus was still in contention at 137 after a 71. Dave Hill was at 136 after a 66, the best round of the day over the course made soggy by heavy rains Thursday. Rod Carew's ninth-inning sacrifice fly scored Steve Brye with the winning run. Carew's winning hit made up for a fielding error he made in the fourth inning which allow- ed both Boston runs. The Yankees took advan- tage of three Chicago errors for four runs in the seventh inning to overcome a 5-3 White Sox lead. Chicago got all its runs off Yankees starter Larry Gura on six hits and a walk in the fourth. Claudell Washington had five hits and drove in three runs, and Reggie Jackson had a two-run homer to lead Oakland against the Tigers. Brooks Robinson and Enos Cabell drove in two runs each and pitcher Mike Cuellar allowed only seven hits to lead the Orioles against Kansas City. Rico Carty's three hits, in- cluding a three-run double, helped Cleveland's win over Texas. Rusty Torres also homered for the Indians. Carty, obtained two weeks ago from Cordoba. Mexico, has hit .444 in 14 games with 10 runs batted in. LONDON, Ont. (CP) Ted Pease walked up to the 13th tee at I he Canadian junior golf championship Friday, placed his ball, then aimed directly for a (Lliimp of trees off to the rough on the right side of the fairway. The ball carried about 275 yards and landed right in the middle of the a spectacular shot, but enough to keep Pease, leader of the championship after three rounds, a happy man. He finished the hole at par en route to a one-over-par 73. good enough for a two-stroke lead in the four-round tourna- ment which ends today. He has a three-round total of 217 after shooting even par in the first two rounds of the tournament Wednesday and Thursday. Serge Thivierge of Alma. Que.. and Matt Poleschuk of Winnipeg are tied for second spot with 219. The 13th hole at the 6.817- yard par-72 Sunningdale Country Club course is one which has been giving Pease his share of problems. He triple-bogeyed it Thursday. STARTED POORLY Friday, he started off his round poorly, bogeying the first two holes and going three over at the end of nine. He said the 13th hole was the turning point in Friday's round. "I aimed for the trouble and shot right for it." Pease said. told myself I had to get over my fear of the hole." Thivierge, playing his last year as a junior after winning the juvenile title in 1972. shot a two-under-par 70 for the best round oi the day. He said his consistent driv- 275 the key to his sub- par round. Thivierge also is a member of the Quebec interprovincial team which won the junior ti- tle Thursday in a sudden- death playoff with Manitoba. Three golfers are tied for third spot, five strokes off the Kavanagh of Nashville. Ont.. who is also low juvenile after three rounds of play, Jim Harrison of Toronto, and Sandy Billyard of Fonthill. Ont. Kevin Breivik of London, who shot a 71 Friday, Doug Lecuyer of Edmonton, and Jeff Van Vliet of London share fourth spot at strokes off the pace. The field was cut after Thursday's round to 75, with 157 needed after the 36 holes to make the cut. One golfer. Jim Goddard of North Vancouver, B.C.. had to drop out of the tournament Friday when he sprained ligaments in his wrist and forearm. OOSTERHUIS LEADS WENTWORTH. England iReuter) Britain's Peter Oosterhuis took the lead Fri- day after 54 holes in the 000 British Professional Golfers' Association cham- pionship with a seven-under- oar 66.
