Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, June 3, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Carmen Rinke selected best boxer after beating Prongue By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer Carmen Rinke, the 1973 Canadian 247-pound amateur boxing champion from Lundbreck, took the measure of his former clubmate, Charlie Prongue of Lethbridge in the featured bout at Taber Saturday night. Rinke forced referee Milt Berdahl of Calgary to give Prongue a standing eight- count in the third round after staggering the game Lethbridge fighter with a flurry of punches. The verdict in favor of Rinke was unanimous but the Lundbreck boy had to be at his best at times to cope with the Buzz Capra attempting to show he's a long man ASSOCIATED PRESS The "long man" is the guy in the bullpen who can be counted on to pitch five or six solid innings of relief. To Buzz Capra, "long" meant about two years. The New York Mets' castoff and refugee from the bullpen, who's been trying for that long to show he really is a starter, is achieving his goal. On Sunday, though, he had to work to prove it. He gave up 10 Montreal none of the baserunners managed to get back where they plate. So, backed by a 16-hit Atlanta assault, the Braves' righthander coasted, in a manner of speaking, to a 9-0 rout over the Expos. In Sunday's other National League games, Chicago Cubs edged Los Angeles Dodgers 7- 6, Cincinnati Reds beat Pittsburgh Pirates 5-1, Philadelphia Phillies defeated San Francisco Giants 4-3 and St. Louis Cardinals outlasted San Diego Padres 9-6. New York Mets' game against Houston Astros was rained out. In games Saturday, Montreal edged Atlanta 7-6, New York defeated Houston 3- 1, Los Angeles whipped Chicago 10-0, Pittsburgh mauled Cincinnati 14-1, St. Louis shut out San Diego 3-0 and Philadelphia defeated San Francisco 6-2. Generals opener RED DEER (CP) Gentrefielder Al McKee drove in five runs with two homers and a single to lead Red Deer Generals to an 11-8 victory over Calgary Giants in the Alberta Major Baseball League season opener here Sunday. McKee rapped his homers in the first and third innings, as counting for three runs, and contributed a two-run single in a five-run fourth inning. His single chased starter Tom Parks, the losing pitcher, and brought on Gord Vejprava. Winning pitcher Bob Bridges worked 5 1-3 innings and gave up six runs. including two-run home -runs to Bob Papworth and Hy Lewis. Reliever Don Pasutto allowed the final two Giant runs in the seventh. "Buzz was the 'long man' in our said Atlanta- manager Eddie Mathews. "Capra was offered to us by the Mets. One of our scouts knew him. He said he was a gutsy guy and a hard workers." So the Braves picked him up in a straight cash deal. So far, he's been a bargain. And he's been improving as a starter since then, four- hitting the Dodgers May 19, shutting out Houston on three hits May 24, pitching nine innings of three-hit ball in the Braves' 10-inning 2-1 victory over Philadelphia last Tuesday night, then blanking the Expos. "It was a little bit tough get- ting readjusted to starting at said Capra. "Now I know I can go the distance. I have the confidence now." Craig Robinson drove in three runs with a double and a single in the crushing of- Montreal. He sparked a three- run outburst in the sixth inning when he cracked a two- run double and the Braves erupted for three more runs in the seventh, the first on Rowland Office's home run. The opposite of the "long obviously, is the "short the late-inning mop-up man. But it was the mainly Jose mopped up Mike Marshall. Marshall, making his 34th appearance of the season, walked Jerry Morales and Billy Williams in the seventh inning, then Cardenal drove his fourth homer of the season into the left field bleachers, putting Chicago in front 64. Rick Monday doubled and scored the winning run on a single by Carmen Fanzone. Tony Perez' 100th career homer in Cincinnati and JOth of the season sparked a three- run burst in the third inning that paced the Reds past Pittsburgh. Fred Norman and Pedro Borbon, who came on in the seventh inning, teamed for a fivehitter. Norman pulled a rib muscle in the third inning and "he told me it hurt every time he threw a said Reds' manager Spark Anderson. "If you noticed, he just threw a screwball and slow curves after that. I told him the Pirates had to catch on sometime." Greg Luzinski reached back into his memory file, then reached back at the plate and crashed a two-run homer, cap- ping a four-run eighth inning that powered the Phils past the Giants. punching out a couple of hits and taking advantage of a couple of errors to cut San Francisco's lead to 32. That brought Randy Moffitt out of the bullpen. "I faced Moffitt Luzinski explained. "He likes to get ahead with the fastball, then get you out with the slow stuff. "I was looking for a fastball on the first pitch." Ted Sizemore drew a bases- loaded walk to force home St. Louis' tie-breaking run and Reggie Smith singled home two more in the four-run eighth that saddled the Padres with their ninth straight loss. It was a see-saw game most of the way. St. Louis had gone ahead 5-3 with two sixth- inning runs. But Dave Roberts' double brought the Padres back within one run in the seventh, and they took a 6- 5 lead in the eighth on run- scoring singles by Bobby Tolan and Willie McCovey. "That's been our said San Diego manager John McNamara. noting that "when we get hitting, we haven't been getting pitching. When we get pitching, we haven't been getting any hitting."
