Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, July 14, 1973 Aaron connects Home runs came easy By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS It was too hot and muggy in Atlanta to do any running, so the Braves and Expos did a lot of run trotting. Eight National League base- balls exploded behind Atlanta's walls and after six hours of bombing, the teams negotiated a Friday trace. It was decided Montreal would take the first game 11-7 and Atlanta would come back for the second 15-6. Elsewhere in the national League Cincinatti Reds edged New York Mets 2-1 in the first game, then the Mets came back for the second game 7-5: Phila- delphia Phillies beat Houston Astros 5-3; St. Louis Cardinals temped Ssn Diego Padres 5-3; Los Angeles Dodgers blanked Chicago Cubs 5-0 and San Fran- cisco Giants defeated Pitts- burgh Pirafss 5-2. The offence began slowly in the first game in Atlanta the Expos chipping away for a run in the second while the Braves countered for two in the third. FIVE IN FIFTH Then came the big guns. Henry Aaron slugged a two-run homer, No. 24 of the season, capping a five-run fifth. "Just another said Aaron, who now needs only 17 numbers to equal Babe Ruth's 714 career total. The Expos countered with their big weapon in the sixth- Bob Bailey. After singles by Mike Jorgensen and Ron Fairly and a walk .to Ken Singleton, Bailey unloaded Ms 18th homer of the year. "I hit it awfully higher, but the ball carries good Bailey said. "It just went out. I really didn't hit it that good." Apparently, you don't have to. In the two games Friday the teams combined for 53 hits, bringing the total to 109 for the past two doubleheaders. Bill Stoneman, who was coasting along on the short side of a 7-1 score when he left in the sixth, saw his team score seven runs while he was still pitcher of record for a gift victory. He was aided by homers from Ken Singleton. Hal Breedenand Jim Lyttle. Mike Marshall gift wrapped the victory with three scoreless innings of relief. Montreal's general, Gene Maucb, had high praise for Marshall, who gained his 17th save of the year. "I don't know what Marshall is made Mauch said. "Something differ- ent, I guess. That's the hottest, muggiest night that we've seen this year and that Marshall was 'still going hard in the ninth." Home runs from Norm Miller and winning pitcher Carl Mor- ton, 8-6, highlighted a five-run second as Atlanta built an 8-0 lead after four innings. Willie McCovey of San Fran- cisco Giants was supposed to rest Friday night but played in- stead, and dismantled the Pi- rates, slamming a two-run homer, Ms 15th and 399th of his career, and a two-run triple. Tom Bradley, 9-7, went the distance, limiting the Pirates to four hits, including Richie Heb- ner's 14th homer and Al Oli- ver's 13th. Jack Billingham of the Reds fired a two-hitter in the first game, out-pitching the Mets Tom Seaver on his way to vic- tory No. 13, which matched his career high. The Mets took the second game on the strength of a four- run first and Cteon Jones' first homer since opening day, when he had two. Wolves capture title The Wolves recently captured the 1973 Norcrest Farm League championship title by defeating the Bears in two straight games in the best-of-three playoff finals. The Bears went down fighting as they suffered a 12-10 set- back in the first game and a 10-9 decision in the second.

PHONE 327-2620 TORONTO (CP) Toronto Argonauts capitalized on early mistakes by Saskatchewan to build up an 18-0 lead, then made a couple of errors of their own to make the game close be- fore running away to a 25-13 win over the Roughriders Fri- day night. A sellout crowd of watched the Canadian Football League exhibition game in which both coaches substituted freely. For Saskatchewan, Brian Linstrom and Ron Lancaster split quarterbacking duties, while Joe Theismann and Mike Rae called the Argo signals. Newcomers Ken Matthews, on a 33-yard pass from Rae, and Pete Muller, a one-yard toss from Theismann, scored two of the Toronto touchdowns. Run- ning back Leon McQuay added the other on a one-yard run midway into the second quar- ter. Ivan MacMillan booted a 29- yard field goal for the Argos and Muller kicked a 50-yard single. Zenon Andrusyshyn com- pleted the scoring with three converts. For the Roughriders, who didn't get moving offensively until Lancaster took over in the second quarter, Rick Eber scored their only touchdown on an 18-yard pass reception. Jack Abendschan kicked two field goals, one from 50 yards out, and a convert. FIRST ARGO WIN It was the first win in two pre-season games for Toronto. The Roughriders, who finished third in the Western Football Conference last year, have a 1-2 exhibition record. Toronto fed 4-0 after the quarter, 18-10 at the end of the second and 18-13 going into the final 15 minutes. The game was played in muggy mid-70 degree weather until a brief thunder- storm late in the game. Three Saskatchewan fumbles in the first by full- back George set up two Toronto touchdowns and a field goal. Two of the fumbles were recovered by Dick Al- dridge and the other by Barry Finlay. Reed's second fumble was picked up by Finlay at the To- ronto 48-yard line, and seven plays later McQuay crashed into the Roughrider end zone to open a 17-9 lead. A fumble by Matthews, who dropped the ball on his own 45 after taking a pass from Tbeis- marai, set up Eber's second quarter touchdown at The ball was recovered by Jimmy; Elder, a rookie defensive back. I The Roughriders ran off [yards included 191 passing as seven plays, including Abends- chan's long field goal, in the last minute to reduce the deficit to 18-10. An interception by defensive back Lome Richardson of Moose Jaw, Sask., bis second of the game, set up Saskatche- wan's final scoring play late in the third quarter. The Roughriders, who took the ball on their own 20, moved to the Toronto 10 before Abendschan booted his second field goal of the game. McQuay was the game's lead- ing rusher with 76 yards on 15 carries, and Reed followed with 54 yards on 13 rushes. In pass receiving, Argos' Eric AHen caught three for 64 yards and Reed five for 54 yards. Toronto's net offence of 363 1 NAMED SALEMAN OF THE MONTH OF THE LETHBRIDGE j REAL ESTATE BOARD CO-OP LTD.
