Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta July 28, 1971 THE LFTHMIDGE HERALD 13 Light-hitting Pfeil bells two homers DIED FOLLOWING FIGHT Danny Tucker, 25, right, died Tuesday in a Montreal hospital following his non-title fight bout with Canadian junior welterweight title- holder Reynold Contin. Tucker lapsed In to a coma shortly after losing a technical knockout to Cantin and died in hospital. Even then it ivas too late 'Don't stop it ref MONTREAL (CP) Jamai- can-born Danny Tucker, who lived to be a fighter, died Tues- day in hospital apparently of in- juries received in a non-title fight with Canadian junior wel- terweight champion Reynald Cantin Monday night. Results of an autopsy which was to be performed Tuesday night were not available. "Danny was a straightfor- ward said Abe Pervin, one of his handlers. "He never shot the baloney. He didn't drink, he didn't smoke, he didn't run around with broads. He was a gentleman. "He lived to be a fighter: He wanted to make it so bad. And then something like this hap- pens. How can anybody explain something like that? Tucker, 25, lapsed into a coma after falling to the canvas in the 10th round of his fight against Cantin. He was rushed to hospital and Tuesday morning underwent surgery to remove blood clots from both sides of the brain. Hospital officials also reported that he had suffered a cardiac arrest. Cantin, who was awarded the fight by a technical knockout, chased Tucker around the ring throughout the bout and had him helpless on the ropes when the fight was called. Several times during the fight Cantin implored Tucker to stop fighting. "In the ninth, he (Tucker) told me to give him the smell- ing said Pervin. "But he wouldn't stop." Cantin said after the bout he was surprised Tucker held on as long as he did. "It's really a said Canlin. "He should have given up sooner." The referee Rosario Baillar- gcon said he stopped the bout as soon as it was evident Tucker was not punching back. Ringsidcrs said that, they heard Tucker tell the referee to let the fight go on." "Come on ref. I'm all right, don't stop the Tucker said. They were the last words he spoke before collapsing to the canvas. "There is nothing on my con- said Baillargeon. Canadians couldn't get out of slump AYLESBURY, England (CP) Canadians had a losing time of it Tuesday at the Stoke Mandcville international compe- tition for paraplegics. Canadian contestants were de- feated in basketball and table tennis on the second day of the week-long games for the handi- capped. Sandra Davenport of Freder- icton, a polio victim, was de- feated in table tennis by Leucre Ver Bauwe 21-10, 21-15, after drawing a bye in the first round. Mamie Bovee of Edmonton also lost in table tennis, suffer- ing a first-round setback at the hands of Argentina's Marie Cochetti. Canada was snowed under by a basketball squud from Swe- den, 73-12. Ernie Blanchette of Saskatoon and Dennis Pottie of Halifax each scored six The over-all Canadian squad at Stoke Mandeville is not Can- ada's front-line team, the top representatives having been busy in Pan-American competi- tion for paraplegics in Jamaica last week. But one gold medal has come Canada's way here, when Ralph Thibodeau won the men's swim- ming event Monday. "They even booed me because I stopped it." Meanwhile, Hy Brock, vice- president of the Montreal Ath- letic Commission said that the commission has certain safe- guards to protect against simi- lar occurrences. "Tucker, as all figliters under our jurisdiction, was examined before the bout by our commis- sion Brock said in an interview. "If he had suffered a knockdown within 30 days be- fore the fight, a complete medi- cal would have been ordered. "As it was, we did not deem these steps necessary in Tuck- er's case, because, to our knowledge, he had suffered no knockdowns in the past 30 days. The examination he underwent included things like blood pres- sure and heartbeat only. "When the fight was stopped, Tucker was still on his feet. He appeared to be okay, although he seemed a little Brock said. Minor baseball The Cardinals find them- selves in a do-or-die situation as they suffered a slim 3-2 loss to the Pirates in Big League playoff action Tuesday night. It was a pitchers duel last night with Allan Korth coming up the winner on six hits and 10 strikeouts. Losing pitcher John Petrunia also came up with 10 strike- outs but allowed two more hits than Korth. Dan Seik stroked two singles and Dennis Halt a triple for the Pirates while Jerry Nugent biased a triple and a single for the Cards. Tim Haute also poked out two singles in a losing cause. Rookie fashions five-hitter for Expos By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Bobby Pfeil, catching due to Philadelphia injuries, caught Houston Astros by surprise be- fore Wade Blasingame caught up with the Phillies' hot bats. Pfeil, a lanky utility player, put his previously all-but-silcnt bat to work Tuesday night with a pair of home runs, his first two in the major leagues, to lead the PhUlies to an 8-3 Na- tional League victory in the first game of a twi-night double- header. But Blasingame put an end to hopes of a sweep as he fash- ioned a four-hitter in the Astros' 5-1 second-game triumph. In other action, New York Mets surprised St. Louis Cardi- nals 3-2, Montreal Expos rocked Chicago Cubs 6-1, Los Angeles Dodgers stunned Pittsburgh Pir- ates 8-5, C i n c i n n a ti Reds bombed San Diego Padres 11-3 and Atlanta Braves held off San Francisco Giants 4-3. "Go home and prepare your- self" is what Phillies manager Frank Lucchesi told Pfei] Mon- day night, advising the versatile 27-year-old he would be catching both games of the twin-bill. 'AN INSPIRATION' Ryan was an inspiration to Pfeil said of the Phillies' No. 2 catcher, Mike Ryan, who suffered a pre-game muscle spasm in his back but ignored the pain and caught Monday night's 15-inning game. 'I decided that if he could catch like he did last night, I could Pfeil said. Willie Monlanez and Deron Johnson also ripped first-game homers off loser Larry Dierker. But Johnson's second of the night and 24th of the season was the only damage against Blasin- game. I threw a lot of fast balls to- night more than I've ever thrown. It was exceptional for me. I also threw my breaking stuff he added after his first complete game in 20 starts. The Mets appeared doomed to their 20th loss in 25 games as Chris Zachary, making his first start since June 9, held them to three hits and was nursing a 2-1 lead going into the ninth inning. But one-out singles by Tom- mie Agee and Cleon Jones knocked out the St. Louis hur- ler, Ed Kranepool greeted re- liever Frank Linzy with a game-tying single, and Duffy Dyer blooped a hit over first base to win it. Tom Seuver, who started for New York, took over the league's striteout lead, fanning seven to boost, his total to 173. Rookie Ernie McAnallay fired a five-hitler for the Expos and Ron Fairly gave him all the runs he needed to turn back Chicago with a two-run homer off Ken Holtzman. McAnally also capped a two-run second inning for Montreal with a sac- rifice The Dodgers snapped Dock Ellis' victory streak at 13 games, chasing the Pirates' right-hander with a six-run sev- enth inning highlighted by rookie Bill Buckner's grand- slam home run. Lee May had a pair of two- run homers, Johnny Bench had one and Hal McKae had five hits including three doubles and a homer in the Reds' 17-hit as- sault against the Padres. The Braves, winning their 18th game in 25, pecked away at Giants' ace Juan Marichal for a 4-1 lead, then withstood Willie McCovey's two-run belt in the ninth inning. Earns lllh ivin in succession Dobson anchoring Orioles' staff By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Who's the winningest pitcher for Baltimore Orioles? Not Mike Cuellar, who won 47 games in the last two American League pennant-winning sea- sons for the Birds. Nor Dave McNally, a 66-game winner in the last three seasons. Nor Jim Palmer, who ac- counted for 36 victories in the last two years. The answer is Pat Dobson, not only the leading winner on the Orioles' staff but currently one of the hottest pitchers in baseball. Dobson fired a four-hitter Tuesday night, striking put 13 Oakland batters and winning his llth consecutive decision with a 1-0 masterpiece over the Athlet- ics in the first game of a doub- leheader. It was Dobson's 14th victory of the season, one more than Cuellar and McNally and three more than Palmer. The Orioles completed the sweep, winning the nightcap 6-4 on Brooks Robinson's ninth-in- nig homer.

For one thing, they're the de- fending champions in the 72-hole event in which scoring on each hole is based on the better ball of each two-man team.
