Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Pirates triumph in 17 innings ___frldqy, July It, THI LETHMIDGl HIKAIO The game is never over until By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ON THE BALI If the Lethbridge Junior Miners are to keep their Alberta junior baseball title these thres. young hurlers will have to be at their best. Miners, de- fending provincial champs, will count heavily on the arms of from the left, Randy Maxwell, Randy Wolstoncroft and Rod Taylor. Miners open defence of their crown Saturday al Henderson Park. Cubs host Calgary Giants tonight Miners defend title on weekend A good night's rest is the order of the day today for the Lethbridge Junior Miners. Saturday and Sunday the lo- cals put their Alberta junior baseball title on the line against htree visiting clubs and coach John Vaselenak and manager Jack Kerr are quietly confident of their clubs chances to repeat as the provincial kings. Clubs from Edr.onton, Cal- mar and Hed Deer will be at Henderson Park to try and re- move the championship the Miners won last year. The Miners will face the Ed- monton Blue Willow Angels in the tourney opener at 2 p.m. while the Calmar Bobcats take on the Hed Deer Moose at 5 The losers will hit the field under the lights at 8 p.m. with the loser then being eliminated rom further play. Eskimos looking for revenge Taber Chiefs host tourney Taber will be the scene of a four team tournament this weekend to decide on finalist for the Southern Alberta Beav er baseball championships. Aciton gets under way at nine Saturday morning with Medi cine Hat facing Milk River Taber Chiefs, the host club play Calgary at The two winners will meet at with the losers slated to tangl at Games Sunday are se for and the final a A similar tournament is bein held in Calgary and the over all champions from the twt events will meet for the south- ern Alberta title. The "A" final is set for Sun- day morning at a.m. with the two undefeated teams on Saturday seeing action. EDMONTON (CP) Calgary Stampeders, who meet Edmon- Eskimos tonight in a West- ern Football Conference exhibi- tion game, have started tlie sea- son as giant-killers. But the Eskimos, who were knocked out of the Western Con- ference semi-finals last season by the Stamps, will be out look- ing for revenge. It's the third exhibition game for both clubs. Calgary won both of its previous games, beating both the Eastern Con- ference Montreal Atouettes and the Western Conference Saskat- chewan Roughriders, both of which won their conference ti- tles last season. Eskimos split, downing Brit- ish Columbia Lions and losing to Ottawa Rough Riders. Calgary coach Jim Duncan said Thursday he isn't surprised at the good start of his team, even if the rest of the league is. "Late last season we slartec playing real good he said. "We only lost a couple of people over the winter and now we've started out playing to- gether ball again. I kind o: thought it might happen." Eskimos ai'e expected to in- SAFETY GLASS STORE FRONTS RESIDENTIAL REPLACEMENTS LETHBRIDGE Corner Sth 4th S. 327-1381 dude in their lineup Charlie 'urner, acquired during the off season for the offensive tackle spot, even although he's only ust reported to. camp and isn't n top shape. Eskimo coach Ray Jauoh said he'll be playing all three of his quarterback candidates, but probably one more than the oth- ers. The one getting the most ime will be the one who looked nest to the two earlier contests, he said. It would appear this means Rusty Clark is the favorite, with veteran Don Trull and new- comer Harry Theofilides fight- ing for the backup spot Jauch also has three fighting it out for the fullback position; Jim Mankins, Bob (Hoss) Hou- mard and Alan Pitcaithly. Duncan said his only injury problem is the hip-pointer suf- fered by defensive tackle John Helton. He doubts Helton will see much action tonight. One of the unknown factors in tonight's game is the playing condition of the Clark Stadium field. In last Friday's rain- soaked game the field took on the appearance of a rice-paddy and brought an official apology from Eskimo management. Turf experts were called in, worked hard all week, and promise the field could be in good shape if the weather re- mains warm and dry. Needs operation MONTREAL (CP) Steve B'ooras, hard-luck defensive end with Montreal Alouettes, will undergo surgery Friday to re- iair cartilage damage to his left knee. Booras is expected to he out of action for at least six to eight weeks. The Icser will then take or the winner of Saturday's las' game for the "B" final right after. At 5 p.m. the A-B will be run off with the "B" finalists having to beat the "A" final- ists twice. The Lethbridge Cubs will tune-up for the Southern Alberta provincial finals with an exhibi- tion game against the Calgary Giants at the Henderson Base- ball park tonight. Currently the Cubs lead the Southern Alberta Senior Base- ball League with an impressive 15-2 record while the opposing Giants toil in the Alberta Ma- jor League. Last season the Giants were one of the top teams in their league, but are finding some difficulties in hitting the win- ners pace this season. Besides tuning-up for the fin- als next weekend to Medicine Hat, the Cubs will get a good look at the calibre of ball they'll have to face if they decide to join that league next season. This game will give a good in- dication also to the fan sup- port the Cubs will have if they join this league. Game time is set for 8 p.m. tonight. Nobody knows just who frost coined the famous remark: "The game's not over till the last man is but Pittsburgh manager Danny Murtaugh be- lieves it. Murtaugh watched his Pirates work their way close to their ast out three times Thursday night, only to bounce back each time against San Diego Padres. Pirates eventually won 4-3 with Roberto Clemente's I7th-in- ning home run ending the long- est game of the National jeague season. Elsewhere, Los Angeles Dodg- ers shut out Atlanta Braves 6-0, New York Giants defeated Houston Astros M, Chicago Cubs edged Philadelphia Phil- lies 7-6, Cincinnati Reds shaded San Francisco Giants 2-1 and St. Louis Cardinals split a double- header with Montreal Expos, winning 7-3 arid then losing W. The Pirates simply refused to give up against the Padres and as a result, stretched their win- ning streak to seven games. San Diego nursed a 1-0 lead into the ninth inning, but the Pirates got the equalizer on Gene Alley's sacrifice fly. The Padres went into the lead again in the top of the 13th on a pinch homer by Ivan Murrell But Willie Stargell evened mat- ters in the Pirates half with his 31st homer. In the 16th, the Padres tried again, pushing across the tie- breaking run, this time on a wild pitch. But again, the Pirates refused to fold. This time there was only one out in the bottom half of the inning when Richie Heb- ner tagged his 14th homer of the year, tying it again. elements finished the job in the 17th to end the four hour, 12 minute marathon. Los Angeles chopped a game off San Francisco's West Divi- ers, Philadelphia's Rick Wise and Ken Hollzman of the Cubs, were the opposing starters but neither lasted past the fourth in- Ding. Matty Alou and Ted Simmons cracked three hits each and Joe Torre drove to three runs with a pair of stogies as St. Louis whacked Montreal in the first game of their doubleheader for Steve Carlton's 13th victory. The Expos took the nightcap behind Bill Stoneman, exploding for four runs to the fourth In- ning to halt a four-game losing streak and a five-game St. Louis winning string. Petrocelli not happy Close pitch costly By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS sion lead, blanking Atlanta while the Giants were dropping a tough one in Cincinnati. The Dodgers used tome runs by Jim Lefebvre, Willie Davis and Richie Allen for four runs and that was plenty for Claude Osteen, who hurled a six-hitter. Tony Perez ripped his 15th homer of the year and third in the last two games to give the Reds their fifth straight victory and beat San Francisco. The Mets spotted Houston an early 4-0 lead but bounced back to overtake (he Astros. Cleon Jones' two-run tomer gave New York the lead in the seventh and Tug McGraw pitched six shut-out innings in relief. Joe Pcpitone's leadbff homer touched off a sir-run Chicago explosion and the Cubs roared from behind to top Philadelphia. The season's two no-hit pitch- Carl Yastrzemski and Billy Conigliaro, the feuding Boston Hed Sox outfielders, buried the hatchet, then Rico Petrocelli went out and buried Minnesota Twins. Petrooelli, upset by a close pitch thrown by Minnesota's Stan Williams in the 13Ui inning, crashed the next delivery by the Twins' right-hander into the left-field screen for a three-run homer, powering the Red Sox to a 3-0 victory Thursday nigth in the American League. Elsewhere, Oakland Athletics outslugged Detroit Tigers 8-7 Baltimore Orioles topped Call fornia Angels 4-3, Kansas Cit: Royals blanked Cleveland Indi ans 1-0, Washington Senators trounced Chicago White Sox 8-; and Milwaukee Brewers nipped New York Yankees 1-0. The Boston-Minnesota game was one of the longest scoreless battles in the Red Sox' Fenway Park, one of the smallest fields in the majors. After the contest, the Red Sox were more eager to talk about the length of the game rather than the publicized dissection which had wrecked the club in recent days. Boston manager Eddie Kasko had conducted a 20-minute dosed door meeting before the game to discuss the Red Sox' internal trouble. Conigliaro had touched off the strife. He reacted to his brother Tony's California retirement by aceusirg Yastaemski of initiat- ing Tony's trade to the Angels last October. Billy also accused Yastnemski, Reggie Smith and equipment manager Don Fitzpa- trick of being part of a conspir- acy, with a great deal to say Race results Bailey holds golf lead RED DEER (CP) Brent Bailey, an 18-year-old from Ed- monton, fired a two-over par 74 Thursday to take a four-stroke lead after 36 holes in the Al- berta Junior Golf champion- ship. Bailey, who had shared the lead with Don Snowdon of Cal- gary and Murray Thomas of Edmonton after the first round, was even par for the first 14 holes of the second round. However, he bogied two of the four final holes and finished the day with a total of 149. Brent Hughes, 18, of Edmon- ton, is second with rounds of 78 and 75 for a total of 153. In third place, six strokes off the pace, is 15-year-old Bob -'e of Red Deer. The final round will be played today.

First half successful for locals Leflibridge Barbarians rugby team has reached the halfway mark of its 1971 season anc club officials are optimistic with regards to the second half. Playing In the Calgary sec- ond division rugby league the locals are playing at better than a .500 clip with three wins and a tie in six outings. This mark leaves the locals in third place in the league. Non-league op- ponents have been less than hospitable to the Barbarians, In five exhibition matches the locals have been on the short end of the score four times. Saturday afternoon at live o'clock at the Civic Centre the team will have an inter-squad game with a social evening planned for after the game. Club officials are hopeful of staging a rugby tournament the Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 4 with second division clubs from various parts of Alberta and eastern British Columbia competing. Club members are asked for assistance in staging this event as well as the social functions which will also be held. Barbarians next league ac- tion is Aug. 14.

Smith was not at the meeting. Thursday night, all three were in the same outfield. And it Smith who started the winning rally, working Williams for a two-out walk. He stole second and Yastrzemski was intention- ally walked, before Petroeelli drilled Williams' 1-2 pitch for his 15th homer of the season. "How two teams like these could go so long without scoring in this ballpark is beyond said Bill Rigney, Minnesota manager. "It's just about im- possible." Oakland rallied for three in the bottom of the ninth to beat Detroit Rick Monday's homer, a two-out walk to Mike Epstein, Dave Duncan's double and Dick Green's stogie capped the revival. Pat Dobson, whose seventr-in- ning stogie broke a 2-2 tie, reg- istered his eighth consecutive victory. The victory left Balti- more 5'A games ahead of Bos- ton in the AL East Dave Nelson capped a six-run Washington sixth with a two-run single against the White Sox.
