Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIDGE HERA1D Wodtmdnv, Jum 38, 1772 AGROWHAWJ IT'S THAT GIVE PIKTY PLAVERS A BAD, Foster flattens young Mike ivith powerful blow Quarrvs' night out didn't last Rigne-y sees something netv Mets right back in it By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS New York Mets and PWladel- phia Phillies open a two-game series tonight with the Mels right back in the thick of it in the National League East fol- lowing a 7-4 victory over front- running Pillsburgh Pirates and the la s t -pi a c e Phillies just happy to have a victory to come home on. They got it in the second part of doubleheader in Chicago Tuesday night, by a 7-4 ficore, after the Cubs took the opener 6-3. "We needed that one badly, very said manager Frank Lucchesi, whose har- assed club ended a 3-10 road trip. "It will make that flight home 30 minutes shorter." Elsewhere, Cincinnati Beds edged slumping Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4, Houston Astros blanked San Diego Padres 6-0, San Francisco Giants nippel At- lanta Braves 3-2 on Bobby Bonds' lOlh-inning home run and St. Louis Cardinals stretched their winning streak to seven games by edging Mont- real 4-3 in 11 innings before the Expos bounced back to win the nightcap of the twi-night twin bill 11-3. Lucchesi has heard rumors of late that his job is in jeopardy and had company on the road t r i p e w general manager Paul Owens. "It's been a tough and nerve- wracking road Lucchesi sighed. "I'm not talking about the job end of it. I'm talking about wins and losses. I take the losses home with me. Any manager who doesn't belongs in a puzzle factory." Manager Bill Higney of Min- nesota Twins has been in pro- fessional baseball for 31 years, but he found Tuesday night that he hasn't seen everything. "When you tliink you've seen it sighed Rigney, "some- thing like this happens." v "Tins" was a triple play pulled off by California Angels that rescued Nolan Ryan from his toughest moment and helped the fire balling righthander whip the Twins 3-1. "This" was a triple play man- ufactured by Steve Braim and Harmon KiUebrew on the base- paths. And what made this tri- ple play so tough WES that Kille- brew was on tlurd base and Carpenter blasts two Ed Carpenter blasted two home runs and led the Labor Club Athletics to a slim 13-12 extra inning victory over the Lethbridgo Hotel Juniors in Commercial Men's Fastball League action Tuesday night. The Juniors held a 9-7 lead two innings of play in last night's encounter, but the Alhlelics managed to tie the score at 12-12 in the botlom oi the final inning. Dennis Oberg scored the win- ning run on a wild pitch by losing pilcher Dennis Hydy- chuk. George Jaekci earned the mound win giving up 10 hits during the eight innings. Carpenter also managed a single with his two home runs while Terry Rhodes added a home run and a single. In the exhibition contest City Electric edged the M and K Generals 14-12 after the Gener- als blew a 7-0 first inning lead. Dennis Hydychuk bested Tom Yip on the mound. Braun on second, eliminating any force-play putouts. Killebrew had opened the Twins' fourth with a single and moved to third on Braun's dou- ble. Next, Jim Nettles flied to Jim Spencer in left. One out. Killebrew, not the fastest run- ner in the American League, faked a start from third and Braun apparently thought h e was running, also started t o go. Third baseman Ken Mc- Mullen cut off Spencer's tlrrow and relayed to second baseman Sandy Alomar who tagged the trapped Braun. Two out. CAUGHT STANDING Next Alomar tiirew to short- slop Leo Cardenas, covering third, and Cardenas tagged Kil- lebrew who was, for some unex- plained reason standing a few feet off the base. Three out. Elsewhere in the American League Tuesday night, Detroit Tigers trimmed New York Yan- kees 5-2, Milwaukee Brewers dropped Baltimore Orioles 6-4, Oakland Athletics ripped Texas Rangers 9-3, Boston Red Sox took Cleveland Indians 8-2 and Kansas City Royals defeated Boston Red Sox 6-4. Detroit Tigers widened their American League Fjast lead to two games over Baltimore b y beating New York while the Ori- oles were losing to Milwaukee. The Tigers welcomed left-han- der Wade Blasingame to the American League with consecu- tive first inning homers by Au- relio Rodriguez, Al Kaline and Willie Horton that produced four runs.. That was plenty for Mickey Lolich, who won his 12th game, tying Gaylor Perry of Cleveland for the major-league lead. Bobby Murcer homered for the Yankees, who have lost four in a row after winning six straight.

After the Quarrys were stopped in their fights Tuesday night, a Quarry relative wound up in jail after a melee hi the seats after the AH-Jerry Quarry bout in Las Vegas Con- vention Centre. The 30-year-old Ali, 21GK, clowned with 27-year-old Jerry, 1W, early in their heavyweight bout. He stood in the corner and SULLY SAYS -By Pat gestured as it to say, "Come on. Give mo your best punch." Ali, making Quarry his sixth victim in six bouts since losing to heavyweight champion' Fra- zier last year, started hitting Jerry at will in the fifth round and punished him with innumer- able blows in the sixth. was sharp and AU said later. "I proved it tonight. told the referee to stop the fight because the man was out on his feel." STOPPED IN SEVENTH Ali landed about a dozen slows before the fight was stopped 18 seconds into the sev- enth round. Foster, 33, handled Mike J have been less than impressed with the display of sportsmanship turned in by t h e Calgary Jimmies and Iheir playing-coach John Elick. The Jimmies have been Lethbridge visitors twice and have disappointed the homestanding fans with some of (heir bush-league tactics. Elick, the chairman the boards of complainers, left a great deal to be desired as an example to Ins players and left a bad taste in the mouth of many local supporters. That, however, is not the reason Elick's name pops up today. The guy, despite some of his antics, can't be all bad. It was the very same Elick, who, on more than one occasion, said that the Alberta Major Baseball League doesn't need the inter-locking games with the Northern Saskatchewan entries. Lethbridge Lakers, who along with the Jimmies and four other clubs make up the Alberta League, are now in full agreement with Elick. He hit the nail on the head. Lakers made their first swing through Saskatche- wan a few days back and played one game. But from this desk, one was enough. If their treatment in North Battleford is any indication, the sooner they say goodbye to the Saskatchewan clubs the better. According to one Laker official, North Battleford is not an example of the remaining teams in the league to the east of us. Thank heaven for small miracles. I couldn't believe my ears when Harry Swan ot the Lakers told me the Jocals had to pay for the rental of the park, the lights and an amusement tax to boot. "Come on Harry, who are you trying to I told him. I was wrong. The Lakers, upon arrival at North Battleford were informed they would have to pay the rental of the park, the lights and a five per cent tax. "It was bad enough that we had to pay for the use of their park for their fans, and then pay for the said Swan, "but how do you justify a five per cent amusement "We got beat Swan "just how amus- ing is Lakers, it can be said, got the shaft. They lost a ball game and lost themselves in the wilds of Sas- katchewan. They did, however, learn a lesson. Next time Elick is spouting off, listen, he sometimes makes sense.

Alberta Rally Club, together, are presenting the film "Dust an exciting film on the 1971 Cross Canada Rally. Murray Munsie of Lethbridge took part in the rally and is in the film. Anyone interested is welcome to attend the film and get acquainted. Quarry, 21, calmness to with calculated defend the light heavyweight championship for the 10th record. A kit hook knocked the youngest-evcr challenger in the division on his back for three minutes. Foster said later he set up the knockout with a right to the body and a right upnercut to the jaw. Previously unbeaten Mike went down for the first lime in 37 fights. The knockout came just as the bell sounded to end round four so, with the count, the end came at of the round. P'osler, at 173W, weighed one and one-half pounds less than Mike. BUT IT PAYS Despite their troubles, there were cash rewards for the for Jerry and for Mike. Ali earned and Foster as the crowd of in the scat arena paid Ne- vada record gate. Promoters anticipate more than million revenue from in- ternational closed-circuit televi- sion. Meanwhile, Ali, who pre- viously has indicated he would fight Foster, said, "I'm back. I'm ready for Frazier. He's got to come out. He's been fighting nobody." A rematch is possible later this year or next in Los Angeles or Houston. Jerry Quarry, who lost lo Ali on a cut near an eye in their earlier meeting in 1970 at At- lanta, said this was the last time he and his brother would fight on the same card 'WASN'T IN THE MOOD' "When I watched Mike, that did Jerry said. "I wasn't in the mood for the fight after seeing Mike get beat. I wasn't defending myself. I really didn't give t damn." Ali boosted his record to 37-1 as the No. 1 heavyweight chal- lenger. Foster called Mike the best challenger he's faced and said he lagged him with the same punch combination he used to KO Dick Tiger for the title in 1908. Foster, who upped bis record to 48-5 with 41 knockouts, said "I'd like to fight a guy like Mu- hammed Ali. Him and I are tlie same type of fighters. I'll take liim any time. Young Mike, of the punch that slopped him, said, "I missed it. I just made a mistake." Foster was visibly alarmed as he surveyed the prone Quarry. "Yea, I was he said, "because he was there and wasn't just lying moving. don't want to injure anyone in the ring." The air show tonight will be on footballs Hy GORDON GRANT CALGAFtY (CP) Fans at I o n i g h t's Canadian Football League all-star game will see an air show before the kickoff, courtesy of the Canadian Armed Forces; but for bombs they'll have to rely on Don Jonas, Joe Theismann and Jerry Keeling. Jonas of Winnipeg Blue Bombers will start at quarter- back for the all-stars with Thetsmann of Toronto Argo- nauts alternating. Keeling will start for the Grey Cup cham- pion Calgary Stampeders. All-star coach Leo Cahill of the Argos says Jonas will start because "it is only fair." "He was voted the outstand- ing football player in Canada last year and it would look funny if we started Theis- said Cahill. He added that the quarter- hacks would alternate on each series "in the first half." lie wouldn't elaborate on his second-half strategy, but left the impression that Theismann wouldn't see much action. DEFENCE TOUGH Calgary's defence, always tough against the rush, will probably force Jonas and Theis- mann to go for the long bomb. Keeling, noted for his ability lo throw the bomb, will be at it again as Calgary coach Jim Duncan said, "We will rely on the pass." The all-stars, out to extend their winning streak to three they won the inaugural all-star game against Ottawa Rough Riders 39-14 in 1970 and last year o uet te s beat Montreal Al- their toughest test so far. Cahill told a news conference Tuesday night he would be sur- prised "if we aren't losing at half-time." "This is the best team lhal's faced an all-star team so far."

HAVE 8 BASIC PLAYS The all-stars have eight basic running plays and "about 15 pass patterns with some op- tions." drawn up by Cahill, said Elackie Johnston, an assistant lo Cahill in Toronto and for this game. Asked how much Theismann and Leon McQuay, both Argo stars, would play in view of To- ronto's intra-squad game Thurs- day night, Cahill conceded Uicy "won't play as much as they'd like to." He also said McQuay will be playing with a cast on the wrist he hurt in a Toronto practice last week. Tommy Joe Coffey. selected as the all-star place kicker, will play at split end, but won't kick field goals because of a knee injury.
