Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, June LETHBRIDGE Menne's victory means more than just money Diving out Atlanta Braves' Darrell Evans tags Phils' Montanez Short major league schedule Monday Met fans were waiting for Pete Rose THE ASSOCIATED PRESS While public enemy Pete Rose was under heavy surveil- lance in New York Monday night, Larry Bowa had Carl Morton all staked out in Phila- delphia. Rose returned to the scene of his playoff scrap with New York's Bud Harrelson last season for the first time and was serenaded with a chorus of boos during Cincinnati Reds' 5-2 National League triumph over the Mets. Meanwhile, Bowa learned something while watching At- lanta pitcher Morton, and he turned his knowledge into a stolen base that set up the tie- breaking run in the Phila- delphia Phillies' 5-2 victory over the Braves. In the only American League games, Minnesota Twins edged Boston Red Sox 5-4 in 12 innings and Baltimore Orioles nipped Kansas City Royals 4-3. The Mets had extra security guards at Shea Stadium and they didn't sell any seats in the left field stands, so left fielder Rose had a quiet evening except for the boos and a first-inning, first-pitch single off Jon Matlack. HAD NO PROBLEMS "All I heard was George Foster calling me off the fly said the National League's Most Valuable Player, who was pelted with bottles and other debris last October following his brawl with Harrelson. "Oh, I heard a few remarks. You know, the stuff like' 'Ya bum, y.a.' But I hear the same stuff around the rest of the league." Three plainclothesmen es- corted Rose from his hotel to the ballpark and then spent the evening in Cincinnati's bullpen in left field. There were few banners, but one of them was a bedsheet inscribed, "Rose is a Bum.2' Did Pete mind it? "Heck. no. Matter of fact, the kid who made that banner showed it to me at the hotel this afternoon." Rose said, "and I signed it for him. I figure, if he goes to all the trouble of making a banner like that, the least I can do is sign it for him." Centre fielder Foster doubled and singled, driving in one run and scoring another, and rim-saving throw from centre field to support Clay Kirby's seven-hit pitching. Del Unser squeezed Bowa home from third base with the Phillies' tie-breaking run in the eighth inning and Willis Montanez followed with a two- run double. Meanwhile, Steve Carlton held the Braves to six hits and struck out 11. Bowa opened the eighth with a single off Morton and went to second on Greg Luzinski's one-out single. Bowa then stole 16th consecutive beat Morton's desperate throw to the plate on Unser's bunt. "I was watching Morton all night." Bowa explained. "'I noticed that he looked only once with a runner at second base and then threw to the plate." Mike Schmidt, whose throw- ing error gave the Braves a first-inning run, drove in Philadelphia's first two runs with a single and his llth homer. Larry Hisle singled home the winning run for the Twins with the bases loaded in the 12th inning, and Bill Hands contributed a brilliant relief stint to notch his 100th major league victory. Steve Braun, who had three hits in the game, opened the 12th with a single off Diego Segui and stole second. Tony Oliva was walked intentionally and, after Bob Darwin flied out, Segui also walked Eric Soderholm, loading the bases. Hisle then drilled his game-winning hit to left field. Hands, who entered the game with an 0-4 record and Leaf ticket prices up TORONTO (CP) It will cost more money to watch To- ronto Maple Leafs play in the National Hockey League next season, it was announced Monday. The seat colors are being changed and the top price will be up from last sea- son. In a letter to subscribers, the Maple Leaf Gardens said the jump in prices is to "meet ever-increasing costs of operating the Maple Leaf Hockey Club." 6.95 earned-run average, pitched 4 2-3 hitless innings, striking out eight and retiring the last 13 batters he faced. Grant Jackson, Baltimore's third pitcher of the seventh in- ning, choked off a Kansas City rally and preserved Baltimore's victory. Doyle Alexander, making only his third start, entered the inning with a 4-1 lead but was replaced by Bob Reynolds with two on and two out. A line single by Amos Otis scored George Brett. Jackson then came on and his first delivery was hit high into short right field by John Mayberry. But Jim Fuller slipped and was charged with an error for failing to catch the ball as Jifn Wohlford scored. Hal McRae then hit into an inning-ending forceout. Wins don't satisfy Dodgers LOS ANGELES (AP) Los Angeles Dodgers are beginning to sound like Oakland group of grumblers. The Dodgers, a first-place team, came home Monday fol- lowing a successful 6-4 road trip sporting a season record of 37-15. the best in baseball, and held a seven-game lead over Cincinnati in the National League West But as the team filed off the Dodgers' private plane, instead of laughter, a sullen silence and a few grumbles could be heard, and they weren't generated by- Sunday's frustrating 7-6 loss to the Cubs in Chicago. The first gripe is perhaps the oldest. Reserve Von Joshua said immediately after the game that he was "fed up" and "wants out" of the Dodger organization because he isn't playing enough. The remark came just after the .238 hitter had banged out a two-run, pinch-hit single in the sixth inning, giving the Dodgers a temporary 4-3 lead. Joshua left the game at that point. Joshua hit .455 in the spring, but has started just three of the Dodgers" 52 games. The next bit of controversy after third baseman Ron Cey and catcher Joe Ferguson collided going for a foul pop-up in the fourth inning. The ball wasn't caught and Cey was charged with an error. "I was calling for it and (Don) Sutton was yelling, 'Penguin, Penguin.' and as far as I know. I'm the only guy on this team known as growled the usually mild-man- nered Cey. "Twenty-thousand people were screaming their heads off." countered Ferguson. "I didn't hear anyone call. But that doesn't matter. I had time to cam under it and that means I could have made the catch." Another argument revolved around a second-inning incident. Dodger manager Walt Alston was irate in the dressing room at a new baseball rule. Cub starter Rick Reuschel brushed back leadoff batter Bill Russell in the first inning and then hit Cey in the left ankle in the second. Plate empire Bruce Froemming immediately fined Reuschel S50. warned him about throwing at another batter and then, in accordance with the new rule, warned Alston and Los Angeles starter Don Sutton that both he and the pitcher would be ejected if there was any retaliation. In the past, the second pitcher to brush someone back would only get a warning, not explusion. "Now the pitcher who starts it gets a token fine and the guy who tries to get even is kicked said Alston angrily. "That's not right." The Joshua incident appar- ently is the most serious. "I met with Alston in St. Louis and told him how I felt.'' said the 5-foot-10, left-hand hitting outfielder. "They've destroyed my confidence. I hit .455 in the spring and then In 11 pinch-hitting apparances this year, Joshua has four hits. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AF) There'll be no more Monday for Bob Menne. There'll be the Masters. And the Tournament of Champions. And maybe an occasional steak in a real, honest to goodness restaurant. But there'll be no more Mondays. The career struggler, down to his last few dollars before his sudden-death playoff vic- tory over Jerry Heard for the first prize in the Kem- per Open golf tournament, has lifted himself out of the rabbit ranks, those struggling hopefuls who must qualify on Monday mornings to gain their way into the field for the regular pro-golf tour events. Menne, who hadn't made expenses for the last 3Vz years, got into the Kempfer that way. After laying out most of his cash in car repairs on the drive over from Memphis, the personable, quick-witted man from Massachusetts shot a 70 to lead the group of eight men who survived the Monday qualifying for this tourna- ment. Now that's behind him. As" a tournament winner, he's exempt from qualifying for 12 months from the date of his victory. And. with in winnings for the year, he's almost certain to make the list of pros who do not have to qualify for the entire 1975 season. At least briefly, his money problems are over. "I was he said.

"I want to go too far in hockey to use that kind of Kevin Strang, 19, told the inquiry called by Rene Brunelle, Ontario minister of community and social services The inquiry was called following the first game of the Ontario Hockey Association all-Ontario final between the two clubs at Toronto's North York Arena in which 189 minutes in penalties were called. Bramalea won the game 3-2 The following day Bramalea coach Richard Hay resigned and team president Gerry Henderson pulled his club out of the series, saying he feared for the safety of the players if the team went to Hamilton for the second game. Testimony given last week by two Bramalea players and a spectator at the game indicated a Hamilton player had used a foreign object during the brawl. Strang said he never used any type of object or black tape on his hands and added he had an open fist when he pulled down the Bramalea player he was fighting with. He said persons may have thought he had something in his fist because the lighting in the arena was such that shadows might have appeared around his hand Two Toronto police officers on duty at the game testified they saw no indication of any foreign objects being used. ABA to fold up? SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) The eight-year-old American Basketball Association will dissolve within a month, the San Jose Mercury-News reported Monday. The paper said that a "solid source inside the ABA" said the ABA's New York Nets, Kentucky Colonels, Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs would be absorbed as expansion teams by the rival National Basketball Association. The source attributed the reported demise of the ABA on large players' salaries which "ate up the revenues "The American Basketball Association will fold up its eight-year-old tent within 30 the paper said. "The handwriting has been on the wall for several days." JOINS OLD TEAM Carolina Cougars have apparently sold or released all their players, one of whom, forward Billy Cunningham, is said to have rejoined his old NBA team. Philadelphia "76ers New York Nets are reported to have lost last year, despite the fact that they led the league in attendance. As further proof, the source cited this year's NBA draft, saying the older league drafted three ABA players whose college classes are scheduled to graduate this year. ABA commissioner Mike Storen has insisted that the ABA will be back for another season. An ABA spokesman in New York denied the report "There is no truth to it whatsoever." said the spokesman "We may operate with anywhere from eight to 12 teams next season, but we will operate "We are going ahead with the usual business required in planning for the upcoming season Expo camps MONTREAL (CP) Mon- treal Expos of baseball's Na- tional League announced Mon- day they will hold close to 30 tryout camps from coast to coast in Canada this summer.
