Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THI UTWKIDOI HMAID Gaylord wins again What grease? that's finesse By THE CANADIAN PRESS Gaylord Perry and Dick Allen like to put their own particular trademarks on baseballs They were at it again Friday predictable results Perry's trademark If you lls-, ten to just about anyone else in the American League Is grease, petroleum jelly or good old-fash- ioned spit. But Gaylord, grin- ning as he drawls his less-than- convincing denials, says it's just plain finesse. With Allen theres hardly any deception involved. What he puts on a ball ii a slight dent, the kind that comes from collid- ing with a bat in mid-swing just prior to rocketing over an out- iield fence Perry, tile ace of the Cleve- land mound staff, was et it again, Baltimore manager Earl Weaver insisted, as he hurled his way to his 17th victory of the season, tying Mickey Lolich of Detroit as the winningest pitcher in the majors. But Perry did more than just toss a six-hitter. He also bunted across the tie breaking tally, triggering a three-run rally that Glover resigns CLEVELAND (CP-AP) Citing "personal Fred Glover announced Friday he has resigned as director of player personnel for the Crusad- ers of the World Hockey Asso- ciation. Chuck Catto, assistant general manager of the Edmonton entry, was earned to succeed him. Glover had taken the Crusad- ers post just three weeks ago after coaching the previous four seasons in the National Hockey League with California Golden Seals and Los Angeles Kings. At the same time, the Crusad- ers announced the signing of de- fenceman Paul Shmyr of the Seals More sport on Page 12 MOBILE HOME (NEW) J6'xH' MIDWEST MOBILE HOMES L.lh. Phonn 327-1984 Blalrmert Ph. 562-2653 gave the Indians their 10-Irmlng 4-1 victory over the Orioles. Allen didn't wait very long to do his thing. He teed off on a Dick Drago pitch in the first in- ning for a two-run homer, his third in twc nights end his 25th of the year, taking over the ma- jor-league home run lead and starting the Chicago White Sox on their way to a 6-0 victory over Kansas City, .Elsewhere In the American League, Milwaukee defeated Detroit 3-2, Minnesota nippec Oakland 4-3, California edged Texas 3-2 and, in a twinight doubleheader, Boston beat New York 6-5 before the Yankees re- bound to win the nightcap 3-1. Perry was delighted with his pitching but even more with his bases loaded suicide squeeze bunt that snapped a 1-1 tie and preceded John Brohamer's game-clinching two-run single "That's three or four times I've really helped myself with the bat this Perry said. "I've always been a pretty fair hitter, I guess, 'cause 1 take pride In my work." And that spitball business? He couldn't have cared less. "They can come and Inspect me any time they .want" he shrugged. "This sort of thing has been going OD for eight years When I was In the National League, seven or eight inspections a game were com mon." He was deb'ghted with Ms pitching but even more with his bunt that snapped a 1-1 tie and preceded John Bromhamer's game-clinching two-run single. 'That's three or four times I've really helped myself with the bat this Perry said. "I've always been a pretty fair hitter, I guess, because I take pride in my work." Tommie Reynolds, sent up to pinch-hit for pinch-hitler Brock Davis after Fred Scherman took the mound for the Tigers with the score tied and two Milwau- kee runners on base, belted a game-winning hit to left to give Jim Lonborg and the Brewers their victory. Harmon Killebrew swatted his 17th homer, a two-run shot In a three-run ninth to lead the Twins past the Athletics, whose West Division lead over the White Sox was trimmed to six games. Ken McMulIen's single, a sac- rifice and Leo Cardenas' two- out double In the bottom of the ninth carried the Angels past the Rangers. Bob Montgomery drove In four runs in the Red Sox' i'irst- game victory, three of them with a ninth-inning homer off Yankee relief ace Sparky Lyle. Steve Kline scattered seven Boston hits to gain the split for New York. AUCTION SALE B E HARDWARE LTD.

Number of competitors in question Canadian contingent grows MONTREAL (CP) Can- ada's representation at next month's Summer Olympics in Munich, West Germany, will be the biggest this country has ever sent to the Olympic Games. Dick Pound of Montreal, as- sistant chef de mission for the Canadian team, estimated Fri- day that close to 300 people, In- cluding 228 athletes, will make the trip. By comparison, Canadian ath- letes competing at the 1968 Summer Games in Mexico City numbered 144. However, the Canadian Olym- pic Association still Is not sure of exact numbers when it speaks of competitors. A num- ber of sports federations have yet to hold their trials, and some will not name their teams until close to the departure date third week in August. In addition to the 228 athletes, the medical team to Munich will include six doctors, six physio- therapists and one nurse. Maur- ice Allen of Sept-Hes Que., will act as chef de mission, with Pound and Don Goodwin of To- ronto acting as his assistants. TWO CHAPERONES Ken Murray of Montreal will be the group's office manager, and there will be two chap- erones, SO managers and 22 coaches accompanying the team. So far, the COA has approved 137 athletes to 14 teams. Still to be selected are the swimming team of 30 or more, an eight-man wrestling team, an equestrian jumping team of five, a rowing squad of "a dozen or waterpolo, basket- jail and volleyball teams. One of the teams that re- ceived COA approval at a six- hour meeting Thursday was the 37-athlete track and field contin- gent.

Carlton sharp Stoneman hot, cools Gibson By TIIE ASSOCIATED PRESS I checked New York on seven Uta I nn ttln Uiratra AUi Everyone talks about the weather but nobody does any- thing about It... except Phila- delphia's Steve Carlton, who ig- nored it and kept his hot streak going, and Montreal's Bill Stoneman, who thrived on it and cooled off Bob Gibson. On a hot afternoon In Phila- delphia, Carlton hurled a 2-0 four-Utter against Chicago Cubs and ran his winning string to a club record 10 games, erasing the old mark shared by Grover Cleveland Alexander, Robin Roberts and Ken Heintzelnun. "I don't follow records and Carlton said. "I was more concerned about the weather and the wind. I don't like to pitch during the day es- pecially when it's hoi. I feel the batter has an advantage during the day. He sees the whole ball." Then Stoneman went out In the cool of an early evening in Montreal and tamed St. Louis Cardinals on five hits 3-1, end- ing Gibson's streak at 11 straight victories. 'I was pretty relaxed out Stoneman said. "I seem to pitch better in cool weather and today was Ideal pitching weather for me. A lot of other pitchers seem to like the hot weather. I find when it's cooler I can keep my strength up bet- ter." SO WHO DOES HE BLAME? The weather was the usual constant 72 degrees hi Houston's Astrodome so reliever Fred Gladding had no one but himself to blame for serving up his first home run ball In almost two years, a three-run shot by Los Angeles' Bill Buckner in the seventh Inning that lifted the Dodgers to a 6-5 triumph over the Astros. Elsewhere In the National League, Pittsburgh shaded New York Mets 3-1, San Diego upset Cincinnali 3-1 and Atlanta edged San Francisco 4-3 In the opener of a twi-rdghter. The nightcap was rained out with the Braves leading 1-0 in the second Inning. Carlton, 15-6, the National League's leading winner, was locked in a scoreless duel with Chicago's Milt Pappas until Greg Luzinski singled with one out in the ninth and Willie Mon- tanez followed with his ninth home run. "It was Carlton said of Montanez' home run. "I jumped up as soon as he hit It. One thing I didn't want was estra innings. Pappas was tough" Montreal Jumped on Gibson for all three runs in the first in- ning on run-scoring hits by Jim Fairey and Ken Singleton and a wild pitch. The St. Louis ace was una- vailable after the streak-snap- ping loss and Red Schoendienst was unable to ex- plain his star's numerous early- inning difficulties. "It just seems to work out that he said. "If you don't iiit him early, you won't hit him at all. I can't explain it. I've never seen another pitcher so consistent this way." Another consistent hurler had been New York's Tom Seaver, who had beaten Pittsburgh eight times in a row. But he yielded a first-inning run on a walk, hit batter and Manny Sanguillen's single and Willie S t a r g e 11 blasted his 21st home run in the fourth.

"But I've been more erratic this year I guess than I have since I've been in the major leagues."

Ninety-nine per cent of my hits are singles. I'm a singles hitter. So what do I do? I hit one and there are two men on base and we win the game. That's only my second homer in 215 at-bats.
