Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE June A walk cost him a perfect game Short sport roundup Busby got careless just once The ASSOCIATED PRESS Steve Busby of Kansas City Royals pitched the first no-hit- ter of the 1974 baseball season Wednesday night and missed a perfect game by giving up a walk. George Scott of Milwaukee Brewers was the only runner allowed on base by Busby in the 2-0 American League game. Busby, who pitched his first no-hitter as a rookie last season against Detroit Tigers, received excellent fielding support. "I didn't make a whole lot of bad pitches and made them hit the ball." he said. Two catches by right fielder Padre rookie one hits The ASSOCIATED PRESS Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants gave a new twist to the art of base running Wednesday night. The Dodgers' display came in a 7-3 loss to Pittsburgh Pirates while the Giants won 5-4 over St. Louis Cardinals. In other National League baseball games, San Diego Padres rookie Dan Spillner pitched a one-hit 1-0 victory over Chicago Cubs, Montreal Expos won 4-2 over Cincinnati Reds, Atlanta Braves blanked New York Mets 5-0, and Phila- delphia Phillies edged Houston Astros 5-4. In the first inning at Pitts- burgh. Lee Lacy of Los Angeles was on third, Jimmy Wynn on second and Ron Cey on first. Jerry Reuss fired a two-out, full-count pitch to Joe Fergu- son Strike three? Ferguson thought so. So did catcher Manny Sanguillen who flipped the ball toward the mound. And so. unfortunately, did Lacy who jogged toward the Dodgers" dugout. But umpire Dave Davidson called it ball four. Wynn. now on third, took off for home. Reuss picked up the ball and threw to Sanguillen, who tagged Wynn. Then Sang- uillen relayed the ball to Richie Hebner at third, who touched the bag. Lacy, a spectator near the dugout during all this, sudden- ly dashed to the plate. Hebner threw to Sanguillen, who tagg- ed Lacy. "Yer Davidson sig- nalled. Players and managers tum- bled from both dugouts, argu- ing with Davidson and chief umpire Ed Sudol. Sudol finally ruled that Wynn was out when he touch- ed home, not because he was tagged but because he technically passed Lacy on the base-path. And Lacy, said Sudol, was entitled to home because of the bases-loaded walk, even though he was near the dugout when Wynn was out. Moreover, the umpire added. Lacy was immune to a tag. So he scored when he slid home, even though Sanguillen tagged him and even though Wynn had already made the last out of the inning. "I'm just happy that one run didn't make a difference." said Pirates Manager Danny Murtaugh. Reuss pitched a seven-hitter and Sanguillen drove in a pair of runs, one of them in a deci- sive four-run fifth that over- came the Dodgers" 3-1 lead. Ron Hunt's bases-loaded tie- breaking single and Tim Foli's sacrifice fly gave the Expos a two-run edge in the fourth in- rookie relief pitcher John Montague made the margin stand up. Al Cowens and a sparkling play by second baseman Cookie Rojas preserved the no-hitter. With one out in the second inning, Darrell Porter hit a long drive to right centre that Cowens snared on the run. With two out in the fourth, Cowens raced into the same territory to flag down a drive by Scott. With two out in the eighth, Bob Hansen hit a hard ground ball headed toward right field, but Rojas intercepted it with a diving, whirl-and-throw play. "That was the play that made the whole said Busby. "That was super." Busby thought Wednesday night's game was better than last year's no-hitter. "This was the biggest thrill of all, bigger than last time, because this was my type of said Busby. "I was more aware of what was going on this time." In other games, Texas Rangers beat Detroit Tigers 4- 2 in 11 innings, Baltimore Orioles nipped Minnesota Twins 6-5, Chicago White Sox pounded Cleveland Indians 15- 4, New York Yankees trimm- ed California Angels 2-1, and Boston Red Sox nipped Oakland A's 2-1 in 11 innings. Busby. 24, relying mostly on fastballs and keeping them low, allowed only five balls to be hit to the outfield. Miners host Cowley for two games The Lethbridge Miners will be out to improve their 6-2 record when they host Calgary Cowley for a pair of Calgary Major Men's Fastball League games Friday night. The Miners, who have been idle since last Sunday, will face Cowley at p.m. and again at nine at the Dave Elton Park. Meanwhile Barry House, a former Lethbridge Miner, has a slim edge over Fred Fisher of the Saskatoon Jacks in the battle for leading hitter in the Western Canada Major Fastball League. League officials had to work out the batting averages to four decimal places before releasing statistics Wednesday that showed House now playing with the Calgary Braves sporting a .3709 average against .3703 for Fisher. While Calgary's House leads in hitting. Pete Brown of Edmonton is the leading pitcher with a 1.09 earned-run average. He leads in innings pitched. 80 2-3, strikeouts. 125. and shutouts, three.
