Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE tETHMIPGE HMAID Sotordoy, 9, 1973 That's ivhat it says Expos over Giants 17-3? By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS San Francisco Giants gave manager Charlie Fox's stomach a rest Friday night as they sur- rendered eight runs in the first two innings and came out on the short end of a 17-3 score in Montreal. The game was never close enough for Fox to get upset over. The Expos got 28 men on base against fis Giants. B.C. wins fifth title iii Games VANCOUVER (CP) British Columbia took its fifth straight title at the Canadian national wheelchair championships Fn- day by a wide margin. The B.C. team, which has never lost in the national cham- pionships, capped its triumph with a 37-25 win over Saskatche- wan in the basketball final. The West Coast team had lost in basketball to Nova Scotia in last year's final and was deter- mined to atone for that defeat. The B.C. team finished with 39 gold medals, 29 silver and 16 bronze, well ahead of second- place New Brunswick, which had 24 gold, eight silver and 11 bronze. Manitoba was third. Alberta fourth. Nova Scotia fifth, On- tario sixth, Saskatchewan sev- enth, Quebec eighth, New- foundland ninth and Prince Ed- ward Island 10th. In the volleyball champion- ship Alberta defeated Sas- katchewan 14-16, 15-8, 15-11 to capture the gold medal. Nova Scotia defeated B.C. to take the bronze. Donna Wruth of Manitoba was named the outstanding fe- male athlete in the champion- ships, with Tom Sharkey of Al- berta getting the nod as out- standing male. Veronica Demerakas of Mani- toba and Doug Bovee of Alberta were named top Class 1A ath- letes, and Tom Parker, of B.C. was top Class B competitor. Miss Wruth and Richard Was- nock of B.C. won Class 1 hon- ors, Snooky Seeley of B.C. and Brian Ward of Nova Scotia topped Class 2 and Sandy Da- venport of Nova Scotia and Tom Sharkey of Alberta headed class 3. base hits and 16 courtesy of Gi- ant mistakes. Elsewhere In the National League Friday, Los Angeles Dodgers defeated New York Mets 5-3, Houston Astros edged Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3, Atlanta Braves downed St. Louis Cardi- nals 5-3, Philadelphia Phillies took San Diego Padres 5-1 and Chicago Cubs nipped Cincinnati Reds 6-5. Three of the Expo runs were forced in by bases-loaded walks and three more scored on wild pitches. Another trotted home on a passed ball. "I'd like to take 13 of those runs and spread them said Montreal manager Gene Mauch. "When you score that many runs in one ball game, you can be sure the other club has given you a few." I Mike Jorgensen and Ken Sin- gleton drove in four runs apiece fcr the Expos with three of Jor- i gensen's RBIs coming on a sac- I outl-inning homer. Montreal scored five times in that inning after getting three in the first. Ron Hunt had three hits and scored five runs for the Expos. All of the Giant runs came on homers. Ed Gocdston connected in the second and Bobby Bonds hit his 15th with a man on base in the ninth. Meanwhile ii the junior league Dick Allen was mad. So was Joe Lutz. You might say it was just a mad, mad, mad world at the Cleveland Indians-Chicago White Sox game Friday night. Allen, who later hit a home run to help Chicago defeat Cleveland 5-2 for Wilbur Wood's 14th victory, was involved in a typical baseball rhubarb in the third inning. The White Sox slugger felt that Cleveland's Milt Wilcox was coming uncomfortably close to him with his pitches. Then the Indians started throwing adjectives from the bench, claimed Allen. And he threw some back. LUTZ EJECTED Lutz, a Cleveland coach, charged out of the dugout to challenge Chicago's big hitter and was thrown out of the game by umpire Bill Kunkel. In the other American League games, Minnesota Twins blanked Baltimore Orioles 2-0, Texas Rangers turned back Boston Red Sox 5-2, New York Yankees routed Kansas City Royals 8-1, Detroit Tigers stopped Oakland A's 4-1 and Milwaukee Brewers trimmed California Angels 8-2. Aided by Allen's two-run homer in the fifth, his 15th of the season, Wood won his 14th game with a five hitter. The triumph stopped a two game losing streak for the Chicago ace. But it'foo is he? Hundley Benched Chicago Cubs' Randy Hundley is tagged out at the plate by Cincinnati Reds' catcher Johnny Bench Friday in Chicago. Hundley was trying to score on a bunt by Don Kessinger. Umpire Nick Coicsi makes the call. The Cubs won 8-5. On this occassion al least Hyland better than Hat Rack Weiskopf, and left talking about Jim Barber. 'Jim asked Weiskopf when told Barber led the second I round of the Phila-j delphia golf classic with a 36- hole total of 132, 12-under parj and the lowest two-round score in the history of the 10-year-old tournament. "Never heard of said Weiskopf, wHo shot a cne-under par 71 for a total of 138, six strokes off the pace. Veterans Trevino and Nicklaus were even 'arther back, Trevino at 141 after a four-under-par 68 and Nicklaus grouped at 143 follow- ing his two-under-par 70. George Knudson of Toronto u as in a big group at 140, eight strokes off the pacesetter, while another Toronto pro, Ben Kern, was at 142. The 24 year-old Barber blazed over the Whitmarsh Valley Country Club course Fri- day in five-under-par 67, card- ing five birdies and not once losing a stroke to par, despite oppressive 90-degree heat. He had a three-stroke lead over a couple of other newcomers, Tom Jenkins and Forest Fezler. Grouped at 136 were Dave Barber (no relations to Larry Ziegler, Hale Irwin and John Schlee. It wasn't a surprise that Weiskopf hadn't heard of Bar- ber. The six-foot native of Clearwater, Fla., has been in the money only eight times since joining the tour last year. By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer The best saddle bronc rider in the world last year and one of rodeo's greatest bucking horses combined to give the fans at the Brooks rodeo a ride to remember. Mel Hyland of Surrey, B.C., reigning world and Canadian champion, got together with one of Beg Kesler's most de- pendable per form ers, Hat Rack, and won the saddle bronc title at Brooks. The diminutive Hyland best- ed Hat Rack for a mark of 81 points and pocketed in the process. Well back in second spot was Bobby Brown of Adrian, Texas with a 71 while Doug Void, Ivan Daines and George Myron were bunched in third, each spurring out 70 point rides.
