Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, Junt 20, 1979 Ifs happening everyivhere, people can't close their eyes to it Football players aren't an exception to drug abuse By STEVE GULBACK Washington Star-News WASHINGTON A profes- sional basketball player, legs cramped in an airplane, tries to doze unsuccessfully after bis fourth game in six nights.

ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES Twins move past White Sox Brewers brough t back to earth By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS George Hendricks hit three home runs Tuesday night, but it was a ninth-inning single that made him the man of the hour after Cleveland Indians edged Detroit Tigers 8-7. After Hendricks hit his llth, 2th and 13th home runs in the irst, fourth and sixth innings, he Indians were still trailing in he American League baseball :ame. In the eighth, the Tigers urned cautious and walked him, but that move backfired when John Ellis hit a two-run lomer to complete a Cleveland omeback that tied the game. Then in the ninth John Broha- mer and Buddy Bell walked to jut the winning run in scoring wsition. Hendricks lined a single and e Indians had their win. In the rest of the American e a g u e games, Minnesota 'wins squeezed into first place in the West Division with a 7-3 victory over Texas Rangers, California Angels knocked Chi- cago out of the top spot by beat- ing the White Sox 3-1, Oakland Athletics pummeled Kansas City Royals 11-6, New York Yankees downed Baltimore Ori- oles 5-4 and, in a twi-night dou- bleheader, Boston Red Sox ended Milwaukee Brewers' 10 game winning streak with an 8- 4 triumph, then made it a sweep by taking the 11-lnning nightcap 4-1. The Twins moved half a game in front of the White Sox and A's and one game ahead of the Angels and Royals in the wild West, wrecking Jim Bibby's American League pitch- ing debut and giving Jim Kaat his 187th career victory, topr among active left-handers in the majors. The Twins put-fielded the Rangers for their victory. Two errors by Texas shortstop Jim Mason paved the way to Min- nesota's 4-0 lead in the first two innings and miscues by pitcher Lloyd Allen and first baseman Rich Billings provided two more runs in the eighth. With one swing of the bat, Winston LJenas sent the White Sox out of the penthouse and saddled 14-game winner Wilbur Wood with his eighth defeat and fourth in a row. The California pinch-hitter slugged his first major league homer, a three-run shot in the seventh inning, to provide Bill Singer with everything he needed to chalk up his llth vic- tory. Sal Bando provided the Oak- land power with a pah- of homers, his 13th and 14th of the year. That's one less than he ha'd all last season. "I don't try to hit he quipped. Bando's second against the Royals tied the game 6-6 in the eighth inning.
