Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THI UTHMIDCI HIRALD July 25, 1973 Nationals blast Americans 7-1 in All-Star clash Anderson's losing streak is finally over KANSAS CITY (AP) A roast beef sandwich sat on Sparky Anderson's desk, but he hardly glanced at it. He found the taste of victory better. "This is great satisfaction to said the manager after his National League team de- feated the American'League 7-1 Tuesday night in the 44th AU- Star baseball game. The meaning was obvious, for the Cincinnati Reds' skipper had finally broken a personal losing streak against the other league. He had lost two World Series and the 1971 All-Star game prior to Tuesday night's overwhelming success. "I was nervous before the said Anderson, "prob- ably as nervous as the players. I really had butterflies." But that uptight feeling van- ished about the middle of the Voted player of the game Tuesday night Sweet-swinging Bobby Bonds was tops KANSAS CITY (AP) The only topic of conversation in the National League dressing room after the 7-1 All-Star victory over the American League Tuesday night was Bobby Bonds. The San Francisco Giants centre fielder wasn't picked to start the 44th game in the series that started in 1933 in a vote of the fans but Manager Sparky Anderson of the Cincin- nati Reds made sure he was used as soon as possible. Bonds, a 6-foot-l, 190-pounder responded with a two-run homer and a double. He was named the most valuable player of the game. "He does everything a bal player can Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves said. "He's super."

More sport on page 10 Anderson said, "On the sea- son he's having, he's the best player in baseball. He just keeps getting better and bet- ter." Going into the game he had 25 homers and 2i> stolen bases for the Giants. SPEED AMAZES Manager Gene Mauch of Mon- treal Expos, an NL coach, con- tinued to be amazed by Bonds' speed. Of the double, Mauch said, "It was a routjne single and you look up and Bonds is on second." Before the game, Anderson said he thought it was a shame that Bonds hadn't been picked by the fans and vowed to get him in the game as soon as allowed to under the the end of three tunings. In the fifth, Bonds hit "a sli- der over the outside of the plate" off Bill Singer of the Cal- ifornia Angels over the left field wall. When Bonds returned to the dugout, Anderson said he toM the 27-year-old outfielder, "Thank you for proving me right." Bounds said he wasn't dis- appointed at not being named a starter. "The fans chose the starters and they made some good he said. of those days. Some of the pitchers were in the All-Star Game for the first time and maybe they were a little ner- vous." HE WANTED OUT Williams said he removed Amos Otis of the host Kansas City Royals, who had two sin- gles, drove in the only AL run and stole a base, "because Amos told me he wanted to bat only twice. After he did, I took him out. "Kansas City is in the pen- nant race and I wasn't going to play him any longer than he wanted to play." "I don't feel said Rod Carew of Minnesota Twins. "Somebody's got to win. If they hit the home'runs and win, there's nothing we can do about it." Nolan Ryan, the California fireballer who has tossed two no-hitters this season, said of the home run pitch he threw to Davis: "Willie hit a fast and up pitch. He hit a bad pitch Sparky Lyle, the great relief specialist of the New York Yan- kees; only smiled when some- one asked him, if it was a nov- elty to come into a game losing by six runs. He pitched only the eighth in- ning. MORE SHOULD PLAY Williams said he. favored in- creasing the All-Star squads to 35 players. "This is an honor game, said Williams. "I feel very hon- ored and proud and I' msure all the players feel that way. There's enough calibre in both leagues to increase the squads. say, to 35. "In making selections, a man- ager can hurt someone's feel- ings by not including him on the Thomas appears ready to play CARLISLE, Pa. Bonds hasn't'had the exposure others have had and he thought the All-Star Game will make the fans aware of his talents. "But you have to see him play day-in and like we do in the National League to be- lieve how good he Anderson said. When asked what the victory by the NL proved, Anderson said, "It proves that the 29 players on the National League team were better than the 29 players on the American League team." Meanwhile manager Dick Wil- league's 7-1 All-Star Game loss iams summed up the American to the National League Tuesday night with these words: 'We were overmatched to- night." Williams, the fiery skipper of the world champion Oakland Athletics, who underwent an emergency appendectomy last Thursday night, didn't appear disappointed by the defeat-the AL's 10th in the last 11 games in the annual classic. "I'm. just glad they're not ail on one team when we play in the World Williams said, referring to the NL aces. 'Sure I was disappointed in our ntching.-The long ball got us. "Definitely, pitching was the tedding factor. It was just one Washington Redskins even if'he didn't want to talk about it. Thomas, obtained from San Diego Chargers last Thursday for two high draft choices, joined the Redkins at their training camo here and quickly won praise from coach George Allen and one of his assistants, Charlie Waller. "Duane's in good said Waller. "He's in better shape than I thought he would be" "He picked up the offence pretty said Allen. "He runs smoothly. He's just gliding and he's ahead of most of the others." Meanwhile, there were uncon- firmed reports that Larry Brown, the National Football League's most valuable player last year, was planning to end his holdout and arrived at the Redskins training camp Wednesday. Allen said the report in the Washington Post "is news to me" "I haven't talked to Larry or his attorney. I hope it's true." PAYING FINES Brown has said he would not is being fined at he rate of per day and thus owes he wants a long-term contract be- ginning in 1974 after his current pact expires. Thomas, along with his agent, Abner Haynes, arrived at the camp Tuesday morning just prior to the Redskins taking the field, talked briefly with Allen and then donned shoulder pads, shorts and helmet for the work- out. He spent most of the morning alongside Waller, offensive backfield coach, who said he explained the Redskins' system. Thomas did seme wind sprints with one of the offensive units and then, after the regular practice, he spent nearly a half hour with a quarterback Sam Wyche, running back Jim Wil- liams and centre Mike Iron go- ing over some running plays un- der the supervision of Waller with Allen looking on. Thomas declined to meet with reporters. "I would appreciate it for a while if you would direct your questions to Allen said. "We want him to learn our system and don't expect a lot out of him. As he learns the system, we'll fit him in." Allen and Haynes said problems are expected on agreeing to terms on a con- tract, a source of trouble with other teams. team .If they added a few more to each team, then maybe we wouldn't have as many hurt feel- lings."

MOVES TO STARS SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Joe Mullaney, head coach of Kentucky Colonels for the last two years, was' named Tuesday as new coach of the rival Utah Stars of the American Basket- ball Association. The Stars heed coach position had been open since the end of the last season, when LaDell Andersen resigned to become athletic director at Utah State University. game, when the Nationals pulled away on home run power supplied by Johnny Bench Bobby Bonds and Willie Davis. "I was really thrilled with the way things were sail' the silver-haired Anderson. knew that we weren't going to have any trouble tonight." For a brief moment, it ap peared that Anderson's ba luck would continue against American League. A double bj Reggie Jackson followed by single by Amos Otis gave the Americans a l-o lead in the sec ond inning before a partisan crowd of at Royals Sta dium. But then Anderson's Reds helped produce the first four runs for the Nationals. Cut' cinnati's Pete Rose and Joe Morgan scored on singles by Cesar Cedeno and Hank Aaroi in the second. The Reds' Bench smashed kng home run into the left field seats in the third and Morgan doubled and scored on Bonds homer in the fifth. Davis fin ished the Nationals' long-ball attack with a two-run shot in the sixth. HAD GOOD TIME Anderson said he was having too good a time to notice tha his three Cincinnati players scored those game-breaking runs. "It certainly helped to have Cincinnati players in said Anderson with a grin "Those are three pretty good players, too." Anderson found satisfaction too, in watching Bonds' per- formance. The San Francisco outfielder also got a double and was voted fee game's most val- uable player. "Right nowt he's baseball's most outstanding said Anderson, who had made point of complimenting the player before the game. "When he hit his home run, I thanked him for backing me up." HIT OFF SINGER Bonds' smash, over the 385- foot mark in left centre, came off a slider on the outside part of the plate from California ace Bill Singer. Like Anderson, American League manager Dick Williams of Oakland A's began his man- aging career with the old To- ronto Maple Leafs of the Inter- national League. He had left a hospital bed after an appendi- citis operation just last Thurs- day to manage in the game. I was feeling they started to he said. "Then I felt a little pain. I got a little twinge when those balls started leaving the park." BOOSTS NL EDGE The National League victory was its 10th in the last 11 games and boosted its overall series edge in All-Star affairs to 25-18 with one tie. 1 guess it proves that the National League All-Stars were letter than the American League All-Stars this 10 of the last 11 years as said a contented Anderson. And it also proved that An- derson could beat the American League.
