Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tutxfey, July 17, 1973 Race meet opens Hope You Hurry did in feature It was -Jose Banquet Knight (4) managed to fight off a strong challenge from Sun Array in the first race Monday afternoon at Whoop-Up Downs as the annual Whoop-Up Days race meet got under way. Banquet Knight, ridden by Ivan Clark, covered the minute, one and one-fifth seconds. seven furlong distance in one Smithy Schaal back at work and happy The Dodgers just didn't make mistakes By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Los Angeles Dodgers raised -the "team spirit" bit to its ulti- mate Monday night following their sixth straight victory, a 1- 0 squeaker over Pittsburgh Pi- rates on the strength of Don Button's six-hitter and Willie Crawford's second-inning home ran off Nelson Briles. The triumph kept Los Angeles 7% games ahead of the runner- up Cincinnati Reds in the Na- tional League West. Houston Astros topped Mon- treal Expos 6-5 in 10 innings, the Reds beat Philadelphia PMflies 1-0, St. Louis Cardinals tripped San Francisco Giants 3- 2 and Atlanta Braves downed New York SSets 3-6 in other Monday games. San Diego Padres are at Chi- cago Cubs for a day game with the rest of today's action under the Angeles at Pitts- burgh, New York at Atlanta, Montreal at Houston, Phila- delphia at Cincinnati and San Francisco at St Louis. Ken Singleton hit a three-run Carpet Dirty? PHONE 328-2853 m I. steam Ctirptt Cleaning ltd. homer in the ninth inning to pull Montreal into a 5-5 tie at Houston. But in the bottom of the 10th, with nobody out, Hous- ton loaded the bases against Tom Walker. The Expos, trying desperately to cut down the winning run, employed their, five-man infield. "It looked like an army in front of said Tommy Helms, the next batter. "They were closing in all around me. But it makes sense if you've got a pitcher that can make you hit the ball on the ground." CLEARS INFIELD JAM Walker wasn't that pitcher. Helms got the ball past the army, hitting a sacrifice fly to left for the game-winning run. "Button's your said Crawford. "He made it stand up." But Sutton wasn't interested in accepting the praise. Instead, he shuttled it along to his bat- tery mate, Joe Ferguson. "People underestimate the job that the catcher said Sutton, 12-5, who struck out nine Pirates without walking any of them to chalk up his third shut- out this year. Ferguson threw the credit right back in Button's lap. "I can call the pitches, but he's the guy who has to throw he said. Over in the Pittsburgh locker room, it was blame, not credit, that was being spread around. "You can look back and say it was the home run that beat said Briles, ?'but the truth is we beat ourselves. The Dodg- ers didn't make any mistakes and we did." NORMAN TAMES PHILLY Like Sutton, Cincinnati's Fred Norman also pitched a six-hit- ter and recorded his third shut- out of the season. Norman's record, 7-9 on the season, is 6-1 since he joined the Reds from San Diego a month ago. Pete Rose, Bin Plummer and Philadelphia's Mike Schmidt gave Norman the only run he needed to beat the Phils. In the sixth inning, Plummer led off with a double. Norman bunted, pitcher Ken Brett picked up the ball and threw it to third ahead of Plummer, but Schmidt dropped it. Then Rose doubled for the game's only run. Joe clouted his eighth homer of the season in the fourth inning and singled for the game-winning run for the Cards against in the 'eighth. I The victory was Bob Gibson's 234th of bis career, tying him with San Francisco's Juan Marichal as the winningest ac- tive pitcher in the majors. Dusty Baker's two-run double in the five-run seventh inning put the Braves ahead of the Mete for good. This is the time of year when most people are looking for- Still sidelined with injury Allen leads ballots NEW YORK (AP) Dick Al- len, Chicago White Sox' injured first baseman, was the leading vote-getter for the American League starting team for the 1973 all-star game, final returns showed Monday. A record number of fan ballots produced a team consisting of five repeaters, in- cluding Allen, and three first- time starters. The White Sox still recovering from a hairline frac- ture of his left teg, had votes, leading John Mayberry of Kansas City Royals by 000 votes for first base in the balloting announced by baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn. In addition to Allen, other re- peaters named for all-star start- ing berths for the game at Kan- sas City July 24 were second baseman Rod Carew of ALL IN THE STORE Mon., Tues., Wed, July 16, 17 and 18 JFAMILY SHOPPING CENT R E CENTRE VILLAGE MALI nesota Twins, Baltimore Orioles third baseman Brooks Robin- son, and outfielders Reggie Jackson of Oakland A's and Bobby Mureer of New York Yankees.

CJOt star team for the sixth time, is unable to play, the starting as- signment would probably go to Mayberry, who received votes. The only other American Leaguer to receive a million votes was Fisk, with The Yankees' Thurman Munson was runner-up for the catcher's job with votes. Meanwhile Cincinnati Beds cranked up the Big Red vot- ing machine and placed three players catcher Johnny Pete Rose and second bassman Joe on the starting National League All-Star team announced today. The National League stars will meet the American League in the 44th mid-summer classic July 24 in Kansas City's new Royals Stadium. Bench, leading the league in runs batted in, gathered 557 votes as the most popular player in either league. Morgan, kading the league in stolen bases, amassed twice as many votes as his nearest chal- lenger, Pittsburgh Pirates, Dave Cash, wMle Rose, among the top 10 hitters in the league was top vote-getter in the out- field. He'll start for the third time. Along with Rose in the out- field wffl be Billy Williams of Chicago Cubs and Cesar Cedeno of Houston Astros. Cedeno nailed down the last starting outfield job by slipping in ahead of San Francisco Bobby Bonds, votes to First baseman Hank Aaron of Atlanta Braves, moving in on Babe Ruth's career borne run record, received of the votes cast over-all, second only to Bench. It will be Aaron's 15th time as a starter and his ninth in succession. Chicago's Ron Santo, with 8W.720, topped Joe Torre of St Louis Cardinals by almost 000 votes and will be making his fourth starting appearance at third. Shortstop Chris Speier of the Giants, who received 930.353 to for runner-up Dave Conception of Cincinnati, is in his first starting role. 1 ward to vacations, but Boston's Reggie Smith and Kansas City's Paul Schaal were happy to get back to work Monday night. Smith, out of the lineup the last 10 days with a knee injury, hit a two-run homer in the fust inning and a two-out solo shot in the llth, powering the Red Sox to a 9-8 victory over Chi- cago White Sox that pulled them within two percentage points of New York Yankees atop the American League's East Division. Schaal, idled for a week with a bruised wrist, walloped a run homer and a single in the Royals' iO-2 rout of Detroit Ti- gers. In the only other league games, Baltimore Orioles shaded Oakland A's 7-5 and Cleveland Indians edged Cali- fornia Angels 9-8. Two doubleheaders feature to- day's action, Minnesota Twins at New York and Chicago at Boston. Single games include Baltimore in Oakland, Cleve- land at California, Kansas City at Detroit and Milwaukee Brew- ers at Texas Rangers. Smith's nth-inning homer off Cy Acosta gave the Red Sox their third straight victory and 12th in the last 15 games. A two-run homer by Chicago's Ed Herrmann in the ninth inning tied the game. Tommy Harper also homered for Boston, John Jeter and Ken Henderson for the White Sox. HURTS TO MISS "I've been able to take bat- ting practice and keep my tim- ing for the last Smith said. "The knee hurts most when I swing and miss." Schaal's homer against De- troit was a two-run blast in the second inning off Mike Strahler. Amos Otis, who had never be- fore hit more than 15 home runs in his professional career, bel- ted his 17th, a solo shot in the third, and singled borne two runs in the eighth. Dick Drago checked the Ti- gers except in the sixth when Norm Cash hit a two-run homer. A three-run homer by Brgoks Robinson following a two-out er- ror by shortstop Bert Camp- aneris in the seventh inning lifted the Orioles past the A's before a season high crowd of in Oakland. Robinson's homer came off Horatio Pina, who took over for Catfish Hunter in the sixth after Al Bumbry's homer cut Oak- land's lead to 5-4. Two-run homers by Sal Bando and Gene Tenace helped the A's to a 5-3 lead against rookie Jesse Jefferson. Jobs Ellis drove in four Cleveland runs, two of them with a homer, and the Indians, aided by California's porous de- fence, beat the Angels. Loser Bifl Singer, 14-5, surrendered ifl tots in 6 1-3 innings but three of the six runs against him were unearned as a result of four of the Angels' five errors, two by shortstop Rudy MeolL What a difference a name makes. Hope You Hurry, ridden su- perbly by newcomer Herb Olive, won the featured seventh race Monday at Whoop-Up Downs. By any other name, the win 'would not have been the same. Hope You Hurry, owned by John Lengyel and Bill West of Lethbridge, fought off a strong challenge from Gallant Indian as he won the Valley Feeders trophy blanket for his efforts. As well, the winner paid to win, to place and to show. Gallant Indian, with Yves Baril up, paid and The track, for the first day of the annual Whoop-Up Days Race Meet, appeared to be fast but times certainly didn't indi- cate that. Hope You Hurry cov- ered the seven furlongs in four seconds off the track record. Monday's gathering wagered as compared to opening day in 1972. There was no exactor Mon- day but there were three quinellas to go with the daily double. In the double Banquet Knight in the first race combined with Lloyd's Image in the second to pay while the day's first quinella, Clifford M and Pay- day Pat in the third, returned Staion Road-won the fifth race and was followed across the finish line by Grey Hope to pay to quinella holders in the fifth race. The eighth and last race of the day saw Starsnip win ahead of Swish- away for the best pay of the day, The race which the Lethbridge Herald has carried in yean past, are not, at the moment available.
