Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta S THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, 6, 1973 Dodgers thrash Cubs 10-1 What is happening with Wilbur? Ready ior anything Third baseman Ron Santo finds himself in an odd position of having a bat in his hand at his position in Los Angeles-Chicago Cub game in Chicago Tuesday. Santo field- ed the bat after it slipped from the hands of Dodgers' Bill Russel, who later flied out. Sign ambidextrous player By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The question in the American League suddenly is not whether Wilbur Wood will win 30 games or even 40, but rather when will be win No. 14? Wood's knucklebaU failed him again Tuesday night as Balti- more Orioles rallied for four runs in the eighth inning to de- feat Chicago White Sox 7-4 and hand Wood his second loss in a row since he notched both his 12th and 13th victories on May 28. Elsewhere, Detroit Tigers downed California Angels 5-2. New York Yankees outslugged Texas Rangers 8-6, Boston Red Sox trounced Kansas City Roy- als 9-2 and Milwaukee Brewers edged Oakland A's 54. Minnesota and Cleveland were rained out with the Twins leading 4-0 in the third inning, washing out home runs by Har- mon Killebrew and Rod Carew. Wood's pitching actually was more impressive than the seven runs he surrendered. He yielded a ground single to Bobby Grich in the first inning and then re- tired the Orioles in order until Brooks Robinson and Paul Blair hit ground singles with two out in the fifth. BOOG HITS HOMER Boog Powell followed with a towering fly right at the right field foul pole for his second home run of the season and first since April 27, wiping out a 2-0 Chicago lead on Dick Allen's 13th homer. In the eighth, Powell singled and pinch runner Enos Cabell was sacrificed to second. A walk to Rich Coggins and Bobby Grich's infield hit loaded the bases and designed hitter Tommy Davis singled sharply to left for the lying and lead runs. Al Bumbry ran for Davis and broke for second. When Wood wheeled to throw to second, Grich broke for the plate and stole home standing up. Don Baylor's RBf double chased Wood and sealed the White Sox' fourth loss in a row. "Wood did his said manager Chuck Tanner of the White Sox. "He made them hit it on the ground but some of them found holes." Eddie Brinkman drove in two runs with a homer and double and reliever John Hiller of To- ronto posted Ms llth save of the season in the Tigers' victory over the Angels. Who's on first? Willie Davis. As a matter of fact, he's on sec- ond, third and home, too. The Old Man of Los Angeles Dodgers is getting around these days. "I'm really excited about our said the Dodgers' most exciting player after bel- ting a triple, double and two singles in a 10-1 rout of Chicago Cubs Tuesday. Davis' 4-for-5 performance, which included three runs Mets find solution NEW YORK (AP) The in- Jury troubled New York Mets have come up with a solution for their health problems. They have drafted an ambidextrous outfielder. He's Lee Mazzilli, and he was the 14th player chosen Tuesday ip baseball's summer free-agent draft. Joe McDonald, director of the minor league operations for the Mets, announced the selection, reporting that Mazzilli "bats right-left, throws, right-left." If he hurts one hand, n regu- lar Met hazard these days, he can use the other.

LEASING Phone 223-3537 "That's acknowledged Joe Maloney, athletic director at Abraham Lincoln high school where young Mazzilli starred as a centre fielder. "He's got two gloves, one left-handed and the other right. He decides each day which one he'll use." Primarily, Mazzilli is an out- fielder. But McDonald says the youngster also can play third base, right-handed, and first base, left-handed. He is also a switch hitter. Regarding his ambidextrous talents, Mazzilli said: "I guess I was just born with it. It all started in the Little League and it really doesn't matter which way I throw. I don't favor ei- ther arm over the other it just came natural to me." FUTURE TO CONSIDER Mazzilli, like most of the other high school players drafted Tuesday, will have to decide between professional baseball and college. He has a four-year scholarship offer from Arizona State, which has pro- duced a large share of major leaguers. No. 1 choice in the draft went to Texas Rangers, and they took Houston schoolboy pitcher David Clyde, who, unlike Maz- zilli, throws with only one left. Clyde, with nine career no-hit- ters to his credit, has averaged two strikeouts an inning for Westchester high school. He has won 17 games without a loss this season and owns a career earned-run average of 0.66. Zasadny fires one hit baU Ron Zasadny fired a ter and led the Lethbridge Hotel North Stars to a 9-0 vic- tory over Claresholm Safeway in the first game of a sched- uled double-header in Southern Alberta Major Men's Fastball League play Tuesday night. Zasadny struck ont six bat- ters in picking up the win while Wayne Dow was handed the loss. Eugene Yamada led the North Stars at the plate strok- ing a double and a of sing- les while Bill Harbuz and Jim Tratch added doubles. Rex Campbell spoiled Zasad- ny's no-hitter with a third inn- ing single. Meanwhile in the second game of the evening, Alf Hegge- dal hammered a grand-slam home run along with a pair oi singles to pace the Lethbridge Generals to an easy 15-5 deci- sion over Claresbolm Safeway. Kaye Elliot earned the mound win giving up nine hits while Larry Yorgenson was tagged with the loss. Mike Pierzchala aided in the win with two singles while Lloyd Yamagishi belted a home run. Rod Wichite managed double in a losing cause. In tonight's games, Generals meet Athletics at 7 p.m. while the North Stars tangle with the Pincher Creek Orphans at p.m. at the Dave Elton Park.

"I definitely think we can win the National League said the 34-year-old Davis, whose enthusiasm is catching on with the Dodgers' bright youngsters. "This is one of the finest teams I've played on, and I've played on quite a few. "This team is young and the guys like to play together." The Dodgers' victory kept them within three games of San Francisco in the West after the Giants beat Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2. In other games, Montreal Expos nipped Atlanta Braves 7- 6 in 11 innings, Cincinnati Beds stopped New York Mets ft-5 in 10, Philadelphia Phillies turned back Houston Astros 4-0 and St. Louis Cardinals trimmed San Diego Padres 5-3. Davis doubled in the Dodger first, singled in the third and tripled in the fifth and scored all three times and knocked in a run with a single in the eighth. He struck out in the seventh, when he was trying to hit a home run for the cycle. "I got the pitch and hit it out, but it went said Davis. "Sure, I was trying for tt, but it wouldn't have been anything new. I've done it before." SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan T TOLD you earlier that Ron Taylor, manager of the Lethbridge Lakers of the Alberta Major Baseball League, was a class guy. My respect for the man has grown in leaps and bounds. As of today, however, it can no longer grow. It is in full bloom. Taylor, who spent 10 years in the National League of baseball, took a full swing at the United States of America Monday. I mean he threw his punches right from centre field. If Washington were the Last Friday Mike Davey, Tom Foster, Dave "Whiteaker and Lenn Sakata arrived in Lethbridge to play this sea- son with the Lakers. Taylor, along with Reno Lizzi, club president, and other board of director members, greeted the four young men with open arms. The gratitude of their wel- come was shown Monday morning. The quartet just packed up and left. Home- ward bound the first day of this week were all four. Very little explanation and even less thank you was shown. "It's too said a very lenient Taylor. "I think I could have helped Davey in particular." Mike Davey was a lefthander who won Sun- day's game with Edmonton Blockers 11-3. He struck out 13 while walking 11. But he also allowed just four hits. I'm not going to knock any of the four. I thought they would be solid members of this year's edition of the Lakers. I still think so. What I don't like is their prima donna departure. It was bush from the word go. They used as an excuse, "the calibre of baseball play- ed wasn't what they expect- ed." If Ron Taylor had thrown Ms hands in the air at the announcement of the loss of the American quartet, who could have blamed him? He wants so bad to win he stayed awake until three o'clock Monday morning thinking about Sunday's two victories. But Taylor again showed his class. He showed just what he was made of. "We'll be an all-Canadian team and we'll be a good one." He may not have used those exact words, but he came close. head of the U.S.'s body, Tay- lor smacked Spokane, and Gonzaga University right in the antenna. Pride is a big thing with Taylor. He didn't tell me that. Taylor, it says in his professional career log book, is a Canadian, born in Toron- to. He has a lot of friends south of the border from playing days. By the same token he -is not impressed with four players from Gon- zaga and what they did to the Lethbridge Lakers and the board of directors of the local club. Okay, second baseman, Sa- kata knocked in the tying and winning run in Sunday's 8-7 victory. He finished the day with a double and two sing- les, that total coming from nine trips to the plate. Fos- ter who played shortstop both games, also had a double and two singles in a like num- ber of at bats. He also had three errors and two bad throws. How can he question the calibre of the league? The fourth member of the group was catcher Dave Whiteaker. I liked Sakata and White- aker. I can't say that I dis- liked Foster or Davey. Call me fickle if you like, but now I could dislike all four of them. As part of this newspaper I promoted their arrival. I helped put the people in the stands Sunday. It was also me who built up all four in Monday's paper. I did it because I like the Lethbridge Lakers. If I had it too do all over again I would probably follow the same course. I spilled the ink telling you how good these players were. How was I to know how young and imma- ture they could be? "I don't want another im- port on my he did say, and he means business. Taylor was disappointed, but not upset. He has all the faith in the world in his Cana- dian club. "Just call us the Lethbridge he will tell you. It is far from being a crisis. As a matter of fact, it could be termed the still before the storm. The storm could very easily be the Lakers' on- slaught on the Alberta Major Baseball League with Tay- lor's "Made in Canada" ball club. Jack and Tom meet head on PHILADELPHIA (AP) The tournament preceding the United States Open often gets short shrift from the great names of professional golf, but the Philadelphia Classic offers a head-to-head con- frontation between Jack Nick- laus and streaking Tom Weis- kopf. The TO-hole last regular event before next weeek's national championship at Oakmont, Thurs- day on the par-72 Whitemarsh Country Club course. Nicklaus, the season's leading money winner, 1972 Player of the Year, defending champion in the National Open, and win- ner of three of his last four starts, is making a break with More sport on page 10 tradition in appearing in this tournament. He's played here before and won it more than once. But the timing is different. It's been about a decade since he played in a tournament immediately preceding one of the game's Big Four U.S. and British Opens, the Masters and the PGA. "This time it's he said. "I haven't played on northern turf all year. I think I need it." While Nicklaus may be look- ing for practice, Weiskopf may be looking for something en- tirely different. "I'll worry about the Open next he said. "Right now I'm just interested In this one." Weiskopf has won two of his last three including last week's Kemper Open at Char- lotte, N.C. He's won in that period. The only one he he played well enough to win any previous Atlanta laus beat him. In the two he won. Nicklaus wasn't playing. _ ANDY CAPP 'E'SGOTTO, BE SORRY, UAOS -1 SEEM TO (AVE UJ5T ME CONCENTRATlOM fODAV.' ELRICK TIRE SPORT NATIONAL. LEAGUE East W L Pet.
