Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, July 17, 1970----------------------------------- Pirates, Twins Beaten In Showdowns ANDY CAPP Orioles, Reds Emerge With Wins As Leaders Clash The Baltimore Minnesota game was a clash between the American League's division leaders, but to tho Twins, it was all a mistake. In fact, it was a lot of mistakes. The Twins made tlirowing er- rors and catching errors along with some faulty base-running won six of eight games before to bungle their way to a 5-1 loss to the Orioles in Baltimore. "Those three days off sorta slowed us down a bit it drawled Minnesota manager Bill Rigney, referring to the all-star break. The Twins had the three-day rest. The outcome left Baltimore six games ahead of Detroit in the East after the Tigers outs- lugged Chicago White Sox 11-C, and cut Minnesota's lead in the West to four games over Cali- fornia when the Angels nipped Washington Senators 3-2. In the only other night game, Cleveland Indians blanked Kan- sas City Royals 6-0. In day games, Boston Red Sox edged Milwaukee Brewers 6-5 in 10 in- nings and Oakland Athletics clobbered New York Yankees 8-2 before losing 4-1 in a double- header. The Twins' problems began in the first inning when they had one runner thrown out at the plate and then gave Baltimore AN EARLY Alibohai was one of the first thoroughbreds to arrive for the upcoming Lethbridge race met. In conjunction with Whoop-Up Days, the race meet, with pari-mutuel betting, kicks off Monday afternoon at two o'clock and will continue until Saturday. With Tiz Alibahai is owner Alvin Vincent, right, of Cody, Wyo., and trainer W. H. Leuenberger of Tucson, Ariz. Thoroughbred racing, the first time in the history of the local exhibition, combines with rodeo and chuckwagon racing for a week's entertainment. Walker Liked To Be A Tough Old So And So MONTREAL (CP) Two of- ficials of Montreal Alouettes re- member Clyde (P e a h e a d) Walker with affection despite their former coach's reputation for toughness. "Everybody thought he was a tough old so and said Sam Etcheverry, head coach of the Als, after learning of Walker's death in North Carolina Thurs- day. "But in truth I think he was a little soft deep down inside." Etcheverry was a star quart- .erback with Montreal during Walker's time as coach from 1952 to 1959. Red O'Quinn, a player unde Walker and now general mana ger of the Eastern Football Con ference Alouettes, said "Pea head was like a father to me." "If it hadn't been for him might never have played fool ball and I know I'd never havi come to Canada. "He was tough, but once yoi were one of his boys he lookef after you well and defended yoi at all recalled O'Quinn "I was just going into my sec ond season with Chicago Bears when lie called me and said he was coming to Montreal. That's how I came to this city."

LETHBRIDGE HONDA CENTRE 1307 3rd AVENUE SOUTH Distributed by: Clarke Simpluns Honda Ltd.p Vancouver Other well-known players re- cruited by Walker when he came to Montreal were Etchcv- erry, Ray Cicia, Tom Hugo, Ha Patterson, Alex Webster, Herbie Trawick and Pat Abbruzzi. Despite an impressive roster that powered the Als into the national final three times under Walker's direction, he never tasted champagne from the Grey Cup. "It was just a shame could never beat Edmonton to win Mm a Gr'ey Cup in those said Etcheverry, refer- ring to three consecutive Grey Cup defeats the Als suffered at the hands of Edmonton Eskimos in the mid-1950s. Walker's long sports career began with 12 years in minor league baseball as both a player and coach. In 1937 he became coach of the Wake Forest foot- ball team and guided the col- lege squad to a Gator' Bowl vic- tory in 1946. After 13 years at Wake For- est, he served as an assistant coach at Yale for one year be- fore moving to the Alouettes. When his stint in Canadian football ended, Walker became a scout for New York Giants of :he National Football League until he suffered a' stroke. Leaders Remain Same As Before CALGARY (CP) No new leaders appeared Thursday in rodeo events at the Calgary Stampede as contestants were unable to surpass earlier per- formances by other cowboys. The best showing of the day came from Warren Wuthier of Banner, Wy., in the calf roping, lie had a time of 11.7 seconds to take second place behind Rex Bland of Trent, T.ex., who caught and tied a yomig steer in 11.6 seconds Wednesday. Hank Abbie of Ramsay, Alta., came within one point of tying for the lead, in the bull riding. His 67 points put him one back of Jim Myers of Throughfare, N.J., and Nick Mousel of Chey- enne Wells, Colo., who both rode Wednesday. The best any cowboy could do in the steer wrestling was seconds, good for a share of third. Davs Penner of 3rooks, Alta., is on top with 5.5 seconds. In the saddle bronc riding the 78-point ride of Kenny McLean Okanagan Falls, B.C., easily withstood any challenges. Paul Mayo of Forth Worth, Tex., kept a firm hold in first )lace in the bareback bronc !vent with no competitor threatening the 75-point ride he made Wednesday. The Bronc events in their Mrd go-round and the others are in the second go-round. ?ach finishes today and the op contestants will compete in the finals Saturday. Meanwhile Ralph Vigen went rom potential champion to ob- scurity Thursday when he iverturned his chuckwagon and lost all chance of catching the front-running outfit. Vigen, driving the Bill Mac- Donald wagon from Wetaski- vin, Alta., was in second place irior to Thursday's race, less than two seconds behind Merle Anderson of Carbon, Alta. He had the fastest time Wednesday and was slowly ilosing the gap, but killed his ake-over bid by upsetting on the turn from the infield to the all-mile track. Vigen, thrown into the middle of the track, scaped injury as several out- riders and another wagon rat- tled past. Dirver Slim Helme kept the Anderson rig well on top of the overall standings with the third fastest time of the night one minute, 10i47 seconds. His total time for the seven days of racing is Tom Dorchester put the Jack Sheckter outfit into second place with the fastest time of the night.

Two innings later, the Orioles made it 2-0 when Paul Blah- scored from third base on a short sacrifice fly. Left fielder Bob Allison caught the ball only 20 yards beyond the infield and then dribbled a throw to the plate that hit Blair on the bounce about 10 feet from home. Harmon Killcbrew managed to get one ran back for the Twins in the sixth off Mike Cuellar with his 27lh homer, but the Twins bpo-booed themselves out of the tying run and perhaps more. A walk and Rich Reese's sin- gle put runners on first' and third with two out when Mitter- wald hit a shot that bounced off third baseman Robinson's chest. But he recovered and still got his man in plenty of time when Mittenvald fell leaving the plate. Meanwhile Tony Perez hit a fly ball that was an easy out in Forbes Field. The trouble, for Pitsburgh Pirates, was the game wasn't being played in Forbes Field. "That ball was an easy out in Forbes Perez said of the two-run homer that he hit Thursday night in Cincinnati Reds' 3-2 victory that spoiled the Pirates' debut in Pitts- burgh's new Three Rivers Stad- ium. Perez's 30th homer of the sea- son probably would have been caught in spacious Forbes Field, but it cleared the 410 mark in centre field, the deep- est point of the new park, and put the Reds ahead 2-1. Perez also figured in the win- ning nin for the Beds, the runa- way leaders in the National League West, when he singled and scored on Lee May's single in the ninth. Despite the loss, the Pirates kept their IVz-game lead in the NL East when the runnerup New York Mets were edged 3-1 by Los Angeles Dodgers. Atlanta Braves topped St. Louis Cardinals 7-3, Houston As- tros nipped Chicago Cubs 2-1 and Philadelphia Phillies out- lasted San Diego Padres 10-7 in other league action.
