Lethbridge Miners Mustangs best locals 3-1 By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer The Lethbridge Miners have come up with their off games during the 1974 Calgary Major Men's Fastball League season but it hasn't been so obvious as in Monday night's en- counter against the Calgary Mustangs. The who are of senior A just didn't seem to be on the so to and dropped a narrow 3-1 decision to the visiting senior B Mustangs at Dave Elton Park. The loss left the locals sporting a 14-5-1 won-lost-tie record and a third place standing in the eight-team league. They'll have a chance to redeem themselves tonight as they entertain Calgary Stereo Hut for a pair of league tilts slated for and nine at Dave Elton Park. Stereo Hut is also of senior A calibre and should provide stiff competition for the Miners. Meanwhile in last night's league the Miners were simply out-played by the Calgarians who were not ex- pected to put up much of a fight against the locals. In their last the locals defeated the Mustangs 7-3 and 3-1 and this could possibly have been one of the reasons for their lackadaisical play. The locals are generally an aggressive ball club on offence and defence but one would not have suspected that after watching last night's tilt. The Mustangs took charge of the ball game right from the start as they threatened to score a bunch of runs in the opening inning. Only some superb pitching from Darrell Leavitt prevented a big inning for the visitors who had loaded the bases with their first three batters. Leavitt reeled back and rifl- ed the third strike past the next two batters and forced the sixth hitter he faced in the inning to ground out. The local chucker didn't fare as well in the third frame as the Mustangs hit the scoresheet for a single run on consecutive singles by Steve Evans and George Peilan. But the Miners came back in the bottom half of the inn- ing and evened the score on singles by Corrido Santoni and Mitch Mychasiuk. The fifth frame proved to be the disastrous inning as the Mustangs rallied for their two-game-winning runs on three base hits and a Miner error. Reliever George Santoni stepped in to replace Leavitt after 5 2-3 innings and blanked the visitors the rest of the way. Leavitt was tagged with the loss giving up six hits while Willy Leiding earned the mound by limiting the Miners to four safeties. Peilan led the Mustangs' hitting attack with two run- scoring singles while Mychasiuk managed to rip a pair of singles in a losing cause. Meanwhile the two clubs also played a five-inning ex- hibition game immediately after the league match. The locals redeemed themselves somewhat by edg- ing the Mustangs 2-0. Rich Mercier allowed only four hits and struck out six batters for the mound verdict over Al Malcolm. George Terry Lyons and Jack Fleming poked a single each for the locals while four batters managed a base hit apiece for the Mustangs. THAT LATE DELlVERlNN THE PAPER I DON'T MIND LOOKINX AT PET AN'THESIWT OF 'IM RUINS MY VERY FUNNY.' I'M SERIOUS good-faith bargaining next The ASSOCIATED PRESS The National Football League players' strike entered a critical stage today with the resumption of talks and rank-and-file criticism of the players association's negotiating tactics. Efforts to settle the 30-day- old strike were scheduled to resume this afternoon in Washington under the supervi- sion of the federal mediation and conciliation service's W. J. Usery. Usery met Monday with representatives of the NFL Players Association and planned to talk with the NFL Management bargaining agent for the today before resum- ing negotiations.

They know it is shameful to protect their juicy pension scale by denying benefits to the men whose underpaid toil made it all possible.
