Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IE1HBRIDGI HITRAID Wednesday, July 14, 1971 Home runs put an end to American League losses VIIIV I- tn c..... _ ,UBhlcd he said in an the upper deck of Slad- sota Twuis' Harmon Kulebrew I thought it was going to knock the light tower said Na- tional league catcher Johnny Bench about Jackson's two-run DETROIT CAP) After eight years of All-Star game frustra- tions, the American League fi- nally found a winnuig formula. While the fans came to see Oakland Athletics' sensational Vida Blue pitch, they all went home talking about team-mate Reggie Jackson's home ran that helped the Americans stop an eight-game losing streak with a fi-4 victory over the Nationals in Howe's pride determines his return DETROIT CAP) Gordie Howe, 43-year-old veteran of 25 record-filled years with the National Hockey League De- troit Red Wings, is so troubled by arthritis that he says: "If training camp were tomor- row, I don't think I'd make Howe told an audience at a dinner Monday night following a Gordie Howe celebrity golf tournament that, "I think pride will be the determining factor in whether or not I play. If I play, I want to par- wouldn't want to injure the club and T wouldn't want to sit on the end of the bench." Howe, whose mother died last month following a fall in his northern Michigan cot- tage, recalled that ''One of the last tilings my mother said lo me was that she wished I'd give, up the game before 1 was permanently in- jured." However, the NHL's all- time goal-scoring leader has been troubled by arthritis in his left wrist and right el- bow. He also suffered a chest injury last season. Howe, said he's going to lake it easy for a few weeks, rest his aches and pains and think over his decision. "When training camp does come in September, I'll know in my heart, my head, my wrist and my legs. I'm not saying that I'm going to give it "up this year, but if I do play, it definitely will be my last year."

"Jackson got us close, Frank put us ahead, and Kil- lebrew made it summed up Earl Weaver of Baltimore Orioles, manager of the victors. Robinson, of the Orioles, was voted most valuable player of the game by report- ers. Robinson and Jackson, from. Oakland Athletics, must be considered dual heroes in the slugfest, which stopped the AL's All-Star losing streak at eight games. And afterwards they each lauded the other for his per- formance. "If I could walk in his image it would he tremen- the Oakland outfielder said of Robinson in the AL clubhouse. "I'm not saying he's a God or a saint. But he's the best I've ever seen." Jackson credited the Balti- more star for helping him come back this year from a slumping 1970 season. Last year Jackson's batting average dropped to .237 from .275, his home run count to 23 from 47 and his RBI total to 66 from 118. Jackson's drive bounced off the generator box at the light tower in right-centre field of Tiger Stadium. "After watching him this pr t winter in Puerto Rico I'm not in awe at Robin- son said of the shot. The 35-year-old Oriole man- aged the winter team to a championship and 25-year-old Jackson was one of the stars. "Frank was a tremendous influence on me, beamed the Athletics' young star. "He told me, 'Reggie, with the ability you have you just have to go out and play the game and you'll have a good season'." Blue came into the contest touted as baseball's best pitcher and breezed through the first three batters before dealing a gopher pitch to Bench, who smacked a.two-run homer hi the National League second. Blue gave up another homer in the third inning, this time to Hank Aaron, Atlanta Braves slugger. "I threw good strikes, said Blue, "but you know they're going to hit your best stuff because they're all-stars. Saddled with a quick three- run deficit, the partisan fans in the Detroit Tigers' an- cient park probably wondered if their American League would ever win a game and cut into the National League's 23-17 ad- vantage. Then light-hitting shortstop Luis Aparicio from Boston Red Sox hit a sharp single in the third and Jackson came in to bat for Blue. BEHIND IN COUNT A last-minute replacement for injured Tony Oliva of Minne- sota, he had two strikes on him before he. knew it. "I wasn't even trying home said Jackson. "I was just trying lo keep from striking out." The next pitch sailed off Jack- son's bat for the American League's first two runs. "I'd expected to see some long-ball hitting in this said Sparky Anderson of Cincin- nati Reds, manager of the Na- tional League team. He ex- pressed surprise, however, that ill runs scored hi the long-hit- ing game resulted from home runs. "I've never seen anything rat that said American League manager Earl Weaver from Baltimore of Jackson's shot. While the American stars pounded the cover off the ball. Weaver still wasn't sure about the outcome until Oriole third baseman Brooks Robinson pock- eted Bench's popup for the last out. i Weaver had hometown favor- ite Mickey Lolieh in the bullpen to calm his nerves. The Detroit pitcher was touched for the Na- tional League's last run, a homer by Pittsburgh's Roberto Clemente, before he retired Hie final five batters. Homers hand Cowboys loss The league leading Dallas Cowboys suffered their first Senior Men's Fastball League loss as the Nu-Mode Homers blasted their way to a 74 vic- tory Tuesday night. Meanwhile in the second game staged last night the M and R Generals trounced the Labor Club 8-2.

Wayne Nesbitt managed a double' and a single and Laurie Jrimson two singles for the Cowboys. Dennis Allen held the Labor Club to two runs while his teammates tallied eight to give him a well deserved victory. Mike Slavich led the Generals up at the plate with a triple against the left-field wall and a home run in the same direc- tion in his next lime at bat Wally Kruchkywich was also handy willi Hie bal for the Gen- erals stroking three consecu- tive singles in four attempts.
