Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE June Gaylord Perry continues hot streak winning 10th straight The ASSOCIATED PRESS Gaylord Perry was hotter than the Chicago fire Friday night. A blaze at a concession itand at White Sox Park died out after a while, but Perry didn't. While the fire temporarily nterrupted Chicago's 8-6 victory over Boston Red Sox, Perry was creating his own icat by pitching Cleveland Indians to a 3-1 decision over. Kansas City Royals. The four-hitter was his 10th straight victory. "I'd take him over anybody in the league right now." said Kansas City manager Jack VIcKeon. Cleveland's jalvation. Without him, those >0 wins, where would the ndians While Perry was throwing ;moke at Kansas City, the :ans were seeing smoke in Chicago. Fire broke out in a concession stand and delayed the Red Sox- White Sox game 70 minutes in he eighth inning. Heavy clouds of black smoke poured across the olaying area and the players eft the field. Some fans went onto the field to escape :he smoke in the stands, but -emained orderly. The fire Paul jumps TORONTO (CP) The Star says Paul Henderson of Toronto Maple Leafs will sign Monday with Toronto Toros of Ihe World Hockey Association.

Oh, how it made those Indians the talk of the town in the entire American Baseball League. Cleveland, as a ball club, hasn't been worth much more than a dime since the early 50s. The beer, then, was the attraction. Last Tuesday evening the Indians of Cleveland offered beer for 10 cents, and patrons responded. By the ninth inning the beer had lost its head. When the beer lost its head so did a good many of its consumers. It all got out of hand. So much so the game, tied 5-5 between the Indians and Texas Rangers, was defaulted to the Rangers. The dime beer in Cleveland may have been the one that will alert the baseball establishment that trouble is brewing in the stands. Baseball seems to attract the rowdies and the vandals. What was once sacred turf, the baseball diamond, is now fair game for every publicity seeker that can afford a ticket to the game. Looking for exposure on national TV is no longer worth it. Gate crashers are ignored. But in Cleveland Tuesday they ran in packs. A New York Times story feels that baseball players appear harmless to run among. Standing still, the average player can be intimadated, so the fan feels. In football, the athletes are too violent. And so they should be. Once, in Baltimore, a teenager sprinted onto the field between plays, snatched the ball and headed for the sidelines. Baltimore middle linebacker Mike Curtis blitzed the would be thief. Jarred into sobriety, the teenager wobbled to the sidelines and left the field, under his own power. I asked Curtis, while he was a guest of the Lethbridge Kinsmen, why he had done it. "A football field is my place of business, it was like the young man had broken into my office. I was simply protecting my interests.'' said Curtis. In very few professional sports are the combatants as vulnerable to injury from the fans, as in baseball. Think about it. Hockey players are protected by sticks. And as well, they are surrounded by glass. In basketball the players are too tall, and menacing, for fans to push their luck. Boxing comes under danger only after a champion has been decided. No one. in their right mind, would attempt to alter the decision while the bout is in progress. Baseball has a problem when the game ends. The New York Mets have avid fans, we can agree on that. But why should an entire team have to evacuate their wives from the stands? The reflection on the Met organization was shown nationally last year in the National League playoffs. Not long ago, Bob Watson of the Houston Astros, dazed and bleeding after running into the left field fence at Cincinnati, had beer poured on him by so called sympathetic fans in the seats above. The primary problem, it would now appear, is that park security is not all that it should be. It is not because they don't want to do their job. it's because they are afraid of becoming involved in a possible lawsuit. It's easier for them to let the people run wild or yell whatever they want. Stopping them is almost impossible. The atmosphere has to be changed. Banning the 10 cent beer won't do it. Splittorff. 5-6, while getting late-inning offensive help. The Indians scored single runs in the last two innings on an error and Joe Lis' homer. Before Lis blasted his first homer of the season in the ninth for an insurance run, the Indians scored the winning run in the eighth with the help of second baseman Frank White's error. Leron Lee doubled and scored when Charlie Spikes singled off White's glove and the infielder threw wildly past first. The Indians rally broke a tie that existed since the first in- ning. Dick Allen blasted a three- run homer in the third inning and Chicago scored three more runs in the fifth without the aid of a hit to beat Boston. Allen's 12th homer of the season, capped a four-run rally in the third. The Red Sox battled back to take a 54 lead with their own four-run uprising in the top of the fifth. The White Sox picked up their winning runs in the bottom of the fifth as Roger Moret walked the bases full. An error by shortstop Mario Guerrero let in one run, Moret forced in another with a bases-loaded walk and a third came in on a wild pitch. Cesar Tovar singled home the tie-breaking run for Texas in the sixth inning, then scored on a hit by Alex Johnson that capped a three-run rally to give the Rangers their victory over Baltimore. Jim Northrup provided the winning run with a bases- loaded single in the ninth, giving Detroit its victory over California. John Knox bunted for a base hit and went to third on a wild throw by pitcher John Cumberland. Mickey Stanley and Gary Sutherland were walked intentionally to load the bases. Reliever Dick Selma replaced Cumberland and struck out Al Kaline before giving up Northrup's hit. California's Dick Lange, who retired 16 of the first 17 batters he faced, lost a 4-0 lead when the Tigers scored four runs in the seventh. Glenn Borgmann drove in two runs with a fourth-inning single and Bert Blyleven scattered eight New York hits, leading Minnesota over the Yankees. Scores on error Brewers' catcher Darrell Porter drops ball as he is rammed by Oakland Athletics' Gene Tenance during an American League game Friday night in Milwaukee. Tenance ran home on a single by Angel Mangual and Porter was charged with an error when he lost the throw from Dave May. Mathews seems hesitant to admit Capra wasn't an original starter By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The way Buzz Capra has been pitching, Atlanta manager Eddie Mathews seems a bit hesitant to admit that Capra was not in the Braves' starting plans this year. "If Rod Reed hadn't been hurt, I suppose Capra would still be our long relief man. That is unless someone else had got hurt or we decided to go to a five-man Mathews said. Friday night, however, Capra showed Mathews that he bears no hard feelings about the original plan to keep him in the bullpen. Capra held Montreal Expos to three hits, struck out five while walking just one, won his fifth consecutive complete game and stretched his shutout string to 25 innings with a 5-0 triumph. In other National League games, Los Angeles Dodgers edged Chicago Cubs 6-5; San Diego Padres nipped St. Louis Cardinals 1-0; Houston Astros blanked New York Mets 1-0; Cincinnati Reds topped Philadelphia Phillies 7- 4. and San Francisco Giants defeated Pittsburgh Pirates 6-2. Jimmy Wynn. who started the season like a house afire, led off the ninth inning with his 16th home run of the season. It was his third hit and third run batted in of the game, carrying the Dodgers to victory. The Dodgers jumped to a 4-0 lead in the first two innings. Chicago came back to tie on a solo shot by Andre Thornton in the fifth and a three-run, inside-the-park homer by Rick Monday in the sixth. George Mitterwald put the Cubs in front with a homer in the seventh, but the Dodgers evened the count in their half of the inning. Dave Winfield's eighth home run and the six-hit pitching of rookie Dave Friesleben carried San Diego past St. Louis. Freisleben and the Cardinals' John Curtis were pitching shutouts until Winfield connected in the seventh inning. Freisleben then worked out of a jam in the eighth and stranded a runner at second in the ninth to preserve the triumph. Don Wilson turned Lee May's second-inning home run into a Houston victory, contributing two of the Astros' four hits. Wilson held the Mets to six hits and stranded nine New York baserunners.
