Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta GET HIM A SEAT CUSHION - Los Angeles' And/ Kosco came all the way from second base on a single to have this collision with Cincinnati's catcher Johnny Bench. Not only did he upset Bench but the catcher dropped the ball and Kosco was safe. The Reds and Dodgers split 9-3 victories Sunday. Jockey Praises Mount's Strong Finish Almoner Earns Queen's Plate TORONTO (CP) everyone concerned moner's victory seemed ready to pass along the praise and that left most of it resting on the dark bay gelding who Saturday won the 111th running of the Queen's Plate, - Almost I ronto gave credit to trainer with Al-1 Jerry Levigne who bought the Victoria Park-sired gelding from breeder Phd. Sherwood for $25,000. "He deserves the credit," Smith said of his trainer after Almoner won an exciting Owner Malcolm Smith of To-1 stretch duel with the filly Fran- freluche and Top Call in the premier event for Canadian-foaled three-year-old thoroughbreds. "I had a feeling we were going to win," said the Toronto merchant. "The harse was ready; we had a good jockey and a good trainer. Jerry gets Start-To-Finish Victory Jacklin No Longer Worries Open With Setback Cowboys Win Twice It didn't start out as a good weekend for the Dallas Cowboys but when the dust cleared Sunday coach Chester Gal was pleased with his club. Cowboys hosted Great Falls AC Supply over the weekend in a three-game exhibition series and came away with a pair of wins. Saturday night Great Falls got off to a flying start by blanking the locals 6-0 but Sunday it was a different story as the Cowboys came up with 16-2 and 6-3 verdicts. Dick Lane was the winner for the visitors Saturday night as he fired a three-hitter at the Cowboys. The loss went to Dar-rel Leavitt. Ron Ramsey dad most of the offensive damage for the visitors as he stroked a home run and two singles. Danny Santoni, Larry Tratch and Jerry Stilson managed the only hits off Lane, each with a single. George Santoni took over the mound duties Sunday and was the winner in both games. In the first game he got the help of a home run from Jack Fleming and a double and single each from Stilson and Myron Ell. Great Falls also helped out with six errors. Ramsey again pounded out a home run in a losing effort. Bill Magillis was the losing pitcher. In the rubber match, four errors and a single in the first inning gave the Cowboys a 4-0 lead they never relenquished. Santoni picked up the win over Lane as Joe Schnitzer paced the attacks with two sin- gles. Danny Santoni, Tratch and Gary Wyrostok added singles. Jerry Jesiko managed a home run for the visitors while Ken Elliot added two safeties. Cowboys see action tonight in the second game of a Commercial Men's Fastball League. At 8; 30 they tangle with the Labour Club following a game between Marquis Hotel and M and K Generals at seven. Race Results EDMONTON (CP) - Results Setur-day from Northlands Park.

The jockey was last year's Canadian champion rider, Sandy Hawley, who also passed on the glory to his mount. "He's the strongest finisher I've ever ridden," said Hawley, who last year had 230 winners but missed the Queen's Plate while sitting out a five-day suspension. "At the top of the stretch I knew I could win it." SAT BACK AWHILE Acting on Levigne's instructions to hold Almoner back until the three-eighths pole, Hawley rated the horse ninth in the 15-horse field on the IV* miles of fast dirt track. Then when Top Call made his move on the backstretch, Hawley went after him and the two went around the field on the far turn, with Almoner passing Top Call at the top of the stretch. Meanwhile, Franfreluche, owned by J. Louis Levesque of Montreal, and Dance to Market, the pre-race favorite, continued their front-runners' duel along the rail. Dance to Market ran out of wind with about 60 yards to go and Almoner sped to a three-quarter-length victory over Franfreluche who had a haif-length on Top Call. The winner's share of the record $88,300 purse was $57,395, also a record. Second was worth $17,660, third $8,830 and fourth $4,415. Almoner went to post as the 5-2 favorite and returned $7.70, $3.80 and $3.10 in the mutuels betting. Franfreluche, off at 7-2, returned $3.90 and $3.10 and Top Call paid $3.80. Smith also received a gold cup trophy, presented by Lt.-Gov. W. Ross Macdonald, and the traditional gift of 50 guineas from The Queen. Cubs, Miners Triumph Doug F r i e r's Lethbridge Creighton Cubs and Barry Gol-berg's Lethbridge Miners both picked up four big points in Recreation Senior Baseball League action over the weekend. At Henderson Ball Park the Lethbridge Miners edged the Vulcan Giants 8-5 in the first game and beat them 7-3 in the night cap. In Brooks, the Creighton Cubs won 12-3 in the first game and applied the 10-run ruling in the second game, taking that one 10-0 after seven innings. The first game between the Vulcan Giants and the Lethbridge Miners, Randy Maxwell picked up the win while Al Taylor suffered the defeat. In the hitting department Tim Neg-r e 11 o and Rob Roy both slammed a triple and a single each for the Miners while John Conacher rapped out a double and a single for the losers.

Verl Ell gained the mound victory in the second game which Jay Dunsmore suffered Uie defeat. Steve Balog was the big man at the plate as he socked out two doubles and a single for Milk River. CHASKA, Minn. (AP) - Tony Jacklin no longer 1 worries about bringing home the grocery money while bending over a putt. The 25-year-old Englishman said the absence of financial pressure helped him win the 70th U.S. Open golf championship Sunday with his fourth straight sub-par round, a two under 70 for a 72-hole score of 281. "In the 1967 Canadian Open," said Jacklin, "I was two strokes belted Billy Casper Mid started thinking about that $30,000. I got thinking dollars on every shot. I lost." Jacklin did not have money on Iris mind when he went into the U.S. Open final round over the par-72, 7,151-yard Hazeltine National golf course with a four-stroke lead over controversial Dave Hall. "When I won the British Open last year," said the dark-haired Briton, "I became financially secure for life. I didn't think much about money this week. I know this might be worth a million dollars to me. "I might go out and buy a new car and a television set." WORTH A MILLION The Open title was worth $30,000 in prize money and Mark McCormack, Jacklin's manager, estimates the championship is worth $1,000,000 in endorsement fees and the like. Jacklin, the first Englishman to win the U.S. Open since Ted Ray in 1920, credited his putter with settling him down on the ninth hole of Sunday's round after going over par on seven and eight. He made a birdie on No. 9 with a 25-foot putt. Jacklin still was not convinced that Hill, who boiled in controversy when he verbally lambasted the Hazeltine course and architect Robert Trent Jones earlier in the week, was all the way out of it. But Hill went one over on two of the last three holes and finished seven strokes back with his 73. Hill, fined $150 for his criticism, won $15,000. Bob Dunn and lefty Bob Charles tied for third with 289, winning $9,000 each. Ken Still took fifth with 291, winning $7,000. Toronto's Al Balding finished in a tie for 17th with 296-carding a 72 Sunday-to win $1,675. George Knudson of Toronto won $805 with a 77 for a total of 306. Jacklin, the son of a lorry driver in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, laid his championship foundation in the first round with the day's only sub-par round, 71, from a wind-disturbed field of 150. Ben Hogan was the last player, in 1953, to lead every round. Jacklin joined Trevino as the only Open players to beat par on every round. He also became the first man since Jack Nick-laus in 1966 and 1967 to hold the British and U.S. Open titles simultaneously. ANDY CAPP DO SOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE?!

BASEBALL SCORES SATURDAY National Chicago 8 St. Louis 3 Cincinnati 5 Los Angeles 4 Pittsburgh 4 Montreal 2 Houston 9 Atlanta 6 Philadelphia 2 New York 1 San Francisco 7 San Diego 1 American New York * Boston 3 Cleveland 2 Detroit 1 Oakland 8 Chicago i Baltimore 5 Washington 4 Kansas City 5 Minnesota 1 California 4 Milwaukee 0 Pacific Coast Hawaii 7 Portland 4 Tucson 6 Spokane S Phoenix 13 Tacoma a Eugene 10 Salt Lake  By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Cesar Gutierrez wrote himself into the baseball record books Sunday when he became the first player in modern major league history to get seven consecutive hits in a game-six singles and a double-as Detroit Tigers edged Cleveland Indians 9-8 in the 12-inning nightcap of a doubleheader. Gutierrez sat out the opener, won by the Tigers 7-2. "When I got the sixth hit," said Gutierrez, "coach (Wally) Moses said I had some kind of record. I said I'll try for seven, but never in my life did I ever think of a record." He got it in the 12th after Mickey Stanley homered to break an 8-8 lie-an infield single off the glove of picher Phil Hennigan. The only other player ever to get seven consecutive hits in one game was Wilbert Robinson of the Baltimore National League club on June 10, 1892. He also had six singles and a doubl.e. John Burnett of Cleveland set the record of nine hits in one game July 10, 1932. He had seven singles and two doubles out of 11 trips to bat in an 18-in-ning contest, but the hits weren't consecutive. Elsewhere in the American League Sunday, Baltimore Orioles beat Washington Senators 4-2. New York Yankees out-slugged Boston Red Sox 14-10 in 11 innings, Minnesota Twins trounced Kansas City Royals 11-2, California Angels shaded Milwaukee Brewers 6-5 in 10 innings and Oakland Athletics took two from the Chicago White Sox 6-3 and 5-4. Saturday, New York downed Boston 8-3, Cleveland edged Detroit 2-1, Oakland whipped Chicago 8-5, Baltimore beat Washington 5-4, Kansas City defeated Minnesota 5-3 and California blanked Milwaukee 4-0. SPRAYS BALL AROUND Gutierrez, a 155-pounder who was sold by San Francisco Giants to Detroit last September, raised his average to .255 from .226 as lie looped a single to centre in the first inning, singled to left in the third, singled to deep short in the fifth, doubled to left in the seventh, singled to right in the eighth and beat out a hit behind second base in the 10th before his record-breaker. Gutierrez's eighth-inning single tied the score and enabled him to come to bat twice more and earn a niche in baseball history. A new pitcher, a single by the 17-1. catcher and an error by the op position all ombined to give Montreal Expos a 3-2 win Sunday, salvaging the last of a three-game series with Pitte burgh Pirates. Rich Nye, makng Ms first start since he was recalled from the minors last Wednesday, stopped the Pirates on seven hits and John Bateman singled to break a 2-2 tie in the fifth in ning. A single by Adolfo Phillips, a sacrifice and an error by shortstop Fred Patek set up Bate-man's run-scoring single. In other National League games Sunday, Hank Aaron drilled two homers to lead Atlanta Braves to 6-4 victory over Houston Astros, while St. Louis Cardinals swept a doubleheader from Chicago Cubs 3-0 and 3-2, Cincinnati Reds split Iwo 9 - 3 decisions with Los Angeles Dodgers. San Francisco Giants beat San Diego Padres 7-2 and the Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets game was rained out.
