Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta July 10, TNI UTHMIDOI Expos, Reds walk a lot Patience is a virtue, just ask Reds' Hal King By THE CANADIAN PRESS Hal King is hard to please, a picky pincb41tter who won't swing at Just any old pitch, and Monday night he decided to be choMier than usual. His wait at the plate paid off. He finally'found one he liked and belted a grand-slam homer to highlight a seven-run up- rising that lifted Cincinnati Beds to an 1H> victory over Montreal Expos in a game fea- turing a National League record 25 walks. It was the Reds' fifth con- secutive victory and ninth in 10 outings. In the only other league games, Atlanta Braves topped Philadelphia Phillies 6-3 in 10 innings and New York Mets edged Houston Astros 2-1 in 12 King started the Reds on their hot streak July 1 with a three-run pinch-homer in the ninth inning against Los Ange- les that lifted OMnnati to a 4-3 Scheinblum no angel, not after Mom By THE CANADIAN PRESS. Of all the Angels in their ball- park Monday night, Baltimore Orioles thought Richie Scheinb- lum had the biggest halo. Schcinblum'a troubles began in the second inning -when he drew a one-out walk but was picked off first by Dave McNally. That negated a sub- sequent double by Lee Stanton. In the bottom of the fourth, right fielder Scheinblum dropped Earl Williams' fly ball after a long run for a two-base error. The only thing that hurt Scbeinblum's fielding aver- age, but an inning later, with two Orioles aboard and one out, Bobby Grich lofted a long fly to light and when Scheinblum dropped that one it meant a three-base error and a tie game. Tommy Davis then sin- ged home the lead run. The Angels' last chance came fa eighth and again Scheinb- Swim club looks sharp Ten members of the Leth- bridge Amateur Swim Club took part in Barracuda Stampede Invitational swim meet in Cal- gary over the .weekend.

Gordon Syme placed in the 100-metre backstroke. him blew it. Bob Oliver singled with two out and up stepped Scheinblum to try for the tying run. The best he could muster was a grounder to first and Cal- ifornia bowed to the Orioles 5-3. EAST RACE TIGHT Elsewhere in the American League, Chicago White Sox nipped New York Yankees 4-3, Boston Red Sox blanked Min- nesota Twins 24, Kansas City Royals outslugged Milwaukee Brewers 1M and Texas Rangers shaded Detroit Tigers 9-7 on Jim Mason's lath-inning homer. The victories by the Orioles and the Red Sox further tight- ened the race in the East Divi- sion. Rico Petrocelli drilled a two-run homer and Bin Lee pitched a seven-hit shutout as the streaking Red Sox beat the Twins and pulled to within one game of first-place .New York. The Orioles are 1% out. Pat KeBy's one-out single capped a two-run rally off New York relief ace Sparky Lyle in the ninth inning and lifted Wil- bur Wood and the White Sox to victory. Kurt Bevacqua's pinch grand slam home run in the fifth in- ning sparked the Royals over the Brewers and helped ignite a free-for-all that emptied both dugouts. With the Royals leading 4-1, Bevacqua hit the first pitch from Milwaukee's Jerry Bell over the fence. Bell then threw three straight brushback pitches to Fran Healy and the Kansas City batter charged the mound and narrowly missed Bell with a punch. Several fights broke out and Bell was knocked down twice before order was 'restored. "I wasn't mad at Healy said. "I Just bad to show him that I didn't believe in stuff like that.

"I was going to wait for a pitch I liked, if I didn't get too far behind, and try to get everything behind it." The veteran catcher, formerly with the Pirates, Astros and Rangers and recalled by the Reds from the minors this sea- son to provide bench strength, clobbered "a tetter-high fast- ball" from Pat Jarvis over the right field wall as the Reds broke open a 44 ball game. The 10 pitchers used by the two teams surrendered 25 walks, one over the league record. The major league record is 30, set in 1916 by De- troit and Philadelphia of the American League. Clay Carroll of the Reds, who picked up his sixth save of the season and was one of the few pitchers to perform well, deliv- ered the 25th walk in the ninth inning to Ron Fairly. "I think that's pretty Carroll said. "I walk only two guys in four innings, and I'm the one in the record book." Joe Morgan bad a two-run homer and Johnny Bench a solo blast for the Reds. SIXTH INNING BIG With the score tied 4-4, the Beds sent 13 batters to the plate in the sixth inning. Bench deliv- ered the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly, Bobby bit a two-run single, then King belted the third grand slam of bis ca- reer. Norm Miller's first base bit of the season, a run-scoring pinch- double, ignited a three-run 10th- inning rally that boosted At- lanta past, file Phils. Loser Barry Lersch also gave up a run-acoring single to Ralph Garr and sacrifice fly to Marty Perez in the inning. Paul Casanova sent the game into extra innings for Atlanta with a two-run homer, his first of the season, in the ninth. Felix Milan's two-out single drove home Willie Mays in the 12th inning with the winning run for the Mets. Lee May homered in the seventh for Houston, but pinch-hitter Jim Beauchamp sent the game into extra in- nings with a two-out, run-scor- ing single in the ninth.

Media doesrft bother him at all Aaron closes in on magic number NEW YORK (AP) Seven hundred and fourteen may be the magic number but 700 isn't a bad figure, either. And that's the one Hank Aaron is rapidly dosing in on, pressure notwithstanding. The closer he gets to Babe Ruth's record, the more intense the pressure becomes. But all the attention from the media, Aaron says, is something he can handle. Aaron's two home runs Sun- day against New York Mets were the 695th and 696th of his career, and only 18 away from the Babe's career total of 714. For the 39-year-old Aaron, in the 20th season of a major league baseball career, they were bis 22nd and 23rd homers of the season. At his present pace, he would reach 715 just at the end of the season. Last year, Aaron hit 34 homers, bringing himself well within reach of Ruth. After his two homers had led the Braves to a 4-2 victory over Hie Mets, Aaron reacted in typi- cal fashion. Contending that "the press used to forget about he said that "this year has been confusing I'm not used to all this attention." The newness of the sudden at- tention leads Aaron to believe he can cope with it. That, plus the fact that he isn't playing in a major metropolitan area like New York. NOT LIKE MAR1S "You must remember that in some cities, such as San be said, "I might have to talk to just two or three writers." This, he noted, is in direct contrast to the constant pressure the Yankees' Roger Marts was under in 1961, the he hit 61 homers and broke the Babe's single season standard of 60. The indication that Aaron might be swinging for the fences brings the response that "I haven't changed my style." He adds, however, "As you get older, you get a little bit more patient in waiting for a good pitch." Aaron admits the home run record is the thing.that is keep- ing him going. For "when you're close to 40 you're at the age when the game becomes dull. But since the record is so close I'd be denying myself the privilege if I didn't go for it."

Iowa Oaks of the American Association announced Monday the optioning of the former Cy Young Award winner to Shreve- port of the Texas League.

Lakeside opened the weekend tourney with a narrow 5-4 triumph over Whitefish with Barry Kimmitt the winner. Allen Gepneris put on a one- man show for the Lakeside crew in the semi-final as he fired a no-hitter while striking out 15 batters. Besides till that, he also had four hits in as many trips to the plate. In the final Tim ffisaoka took the loss as the locals lost a narrow 3-2 decision to host Kal- ispell. Pro golfers beware of 'postage stamp' Trevino helps lee Trevino of ihe United States, holder of the British Open golf tirte, gives some s to "Chi Chi" Rodriguez of Puerto Rico dn the course todoy. TROON, Scotland (AP) last time the British Open gotf chonpiooatip was played here, tbe Scoreboard men ran out of cards narked seven, eight and trine. Some blamed the "postage stamp" for tbe sky- rocketing scores in 1962. But most shook their clubs at the "railway." Arnold Palmer, at the crest of his career, humbled Tram with a 72-hole total of 276 for a six- stroke victory. That 13-under- par score is tbe record for tbe British championship. But as Palmer flourished, oth- ers withered.

But next year definitely will be my last." Should one start to think that the pitchers might be doing their part in making Aaron's task a little easier, Hank denies it. "I don't even get balls down the middle in batting practice he said. When Aaron reaches the TOO milestone, the countdown will begin in earnest. Hank has ex- pressed the hope that be hits his 714th in Atlanta where he has played since 1966 after 12 years in Milwaukee.
