Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Visitors will submit official protest Lakers' bats crush Giants By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer What could you possibly say about a game that featured 27 runs, two seven run rallies, 35 hits, six pitchers and one pro- test. The only thing I could think of was the fact that the Leth- bridge Lakers remained on top of the southern division of the Alberta Major Baseball League by outlasting the visiting Cal- gary Giants 17-10 Tuesday night. The victory pushed the .Lakers' record to 12-7 and a game-and-a-half lead over the idle Calgary Jimmies and two full games over the Giants. The Lakers will get a chance to pad their lead over the two Calgary clubs next Monday night when they host the Jim- mies in a most important en- counter. At Henderson Stadium last night, the Giants gave the. Lakers and their 1.500 loyal supporters a big scare by scor- ing two runs on four consecu- tive hits in the opening inning. The Lakers assured the par- tisan fans they were still in the ball game though as they con- for three of their own in the bottom of the frame. With a 3-2 lead after the two complete innings the L a k e r Ya and what else? Calgary Giants' manager, Mel Pettigrew, and plate umpire Keith Atkin listen carefully to what first base um- pire Stan Carmichael has to say about a rule interpreta- tion during a third inning play in an Alberta Major Base- ball League game between the Giants and Lethbridge Lakers Tuesday night. The Giants lost the argument and Jhe game as the Lakers exploded for a 17-10 victory be- fore some partisan fans at Henderson Stadium. more or less put the game out of reach as they rallied for seven runs in the third inning while adding three in both the fourth and sixth. Their final run came In the seventh inning when Tint Negrello scored from third base on a single by Bob Brown. On the other hand, the Giants went down fighting as they picked up their third run of the game in the seventh inning while adding seven more in the top of the ninth. Paul Sullivan was the victim of the Giants' big ninth-inning rally as they tagged him for five singles and a double. Starter Rod Taylor earned the mound decision giving up eight hits while fanning four in seven complete innings. Jerry Veres handled the mound duties for the Lakers in tfae eighth facing only four bat- ers while Sullivan took over the chores in the ninth. Losing pitcher Dave Day saw ction for only 2 1-3 innings De- ore giving way to Gord Vej- a-ava, who was in turn relieved >y Hi Lewis with two out in the eventh. Day allowed eight hits in his rief appearance while Vej- rava was rapped for 12. .lewis only relinquished a sin- ;le to Brown in his two inn- igs. Marty Maxwell powered the Lakers' 21-hit attack stroking two-run home run, a triple and a double which accounted or four runs-batted-in while frown followed with four sin- gles. Last year's league batting hampion Rob Roy connected or a double and two singles while Mel Zatylny added, three ingles. Dave Edson paced the Giants with a double and two singles while Lewis and Stew Heron chipped in with three singles ach. Meanwhile the Giants played the game under protest after osing a dispute with the um- rcs on a third inning ruling. The incident occurred with two away in the third frame with Zatylny reaching first tase after smacking a single. Designated hitter A. J. Thom- as came up to bat and lofted a pitch that trickled to Giants litcher Vejprava, who fumbled t momentarily and then fired over the first baseman's lead. The ball eventually rested under the wiring fence near be right field stands and the >aserunners were given extra American League managers smile Old, but new players pay off By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Six American League man- agers had cause to smile Tues- day night. They were not only winners, but the players who produced big efforts were acquired from other teams. Boston Red Sox1 Luis Tiant, who was unconditionally re- leased by Minnesota two years ago, two-hit the Twins for a 2-1 victory. Stan Bahnsen of Chicago Write Sox, a former Yankee, beat New York 2-1. Cleveland's Busty Toires, an- other ex-Yankee, hit a three-run homer in the ninth, raiding tbe Indians over Oakland A's 7-5. CRACKS 3 HOMERS California's Lee Stanton, a refugee from New York Mets, belted three home runs in the Angels' 10-inning 10-8 decision over Baltimore Orioles. Detroit's Dick Sharon, former property of Pittsburgh Pirates, slammed two homers in the Ti- gers' 54 victory over Texas Rangers. And Kansas City's Lou Pi- niella, a former Indian drove in three inns to help the Royals defeat Milwaukee Brewers 5-3. In player-transaction talk, that's called the last laugh. Boston visits Minnesota and .New York is at Chicago in the afternoon white Oakland at Cleveland. Kansas City at Mil- waukee. Texas at Detroit and California at Baltimore at night complete today's schedule. "Hani looks super said Twins' designated hitter Tony Oliva. The only two hits off tbe Boston hurler were Joe Ids' double in the second and Rod Carew's single in the ninth. "He looks like he did four years ago when he won 21 games for Cleveland." SOX CLIMB TO FIRST Tiant pitched Boston into first place in tbe American League East, three percentage points ahead of the Yankees, by bes- ting Jim Kaat's five-hitter. The Red Sox won it with two rims in the third on doubles by Darren Evans and Tommy Har- per and Luis Aparitio's RBI- single. "It's always great beating your former Bah- nsen said after doing just that and knocking the Yanks down to second place. Chicago manager Chuck Tan- ner also recognized another player, Buddy Bradford, whose major league stops include Cleveland and CindnnatL He scored the tying run and batted in the winning run while running his hitting streak to 11 games. Sharon, who started out the season on Pittsburgh's roster, didn't expect to be in a major league city, much less go four- for-four with two home runs in a Detroit victory. "I never did that even in the Sharon said. "My best was four-for-five." New York Mets sent Stanton west in the infamous Nolan Ryan-Jim Fregosi trade. Ryan quickly made Angel fans forget Fregosi. Now it's Stantoa's turn. He belted three home runs including a two-run game-win- ner in the 10th for the decision over Baltimore. Piniella, whose three RB came on a two-run homer and a single, provided Steve Busby with the margin of victory. Busby did tha rest himself striking out 13 Brewers to set a Kansas City record.

What Matlack ad was bear down, get Stop Jutze on a grounder, then strike out oppos- ing pitcher Jerry Reuss and for- mer team-mate Tonunie Agee. That left Tommy Helms standing on second base with Houston's only hit as Mattock throttled tfae Astros and held New Yoifc Mets together for a 1-0 victory Tuesday night.
