Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta g THE UTHMIDGE HERALD Thursday, Jun. 28, 1973 Lakers to start Sullivan Giants are hot here for game Clyde allowed just one hit By THE AJSSOCIATED PRESS Texas Rangers purrmed" a little homegrown excitement into their ballpark Wednesday night, unteashing David Clyde, their fireballing 18-year-old No. 1 draft choice, against Min- nesota Twins. The Rangers came away from the young left-hander's de- but with a 4-3 victory and some- thing for a record crowd of 698 to talk about. The fans cheered every move he made and immediately re- placed in the club's cashbox the estimated bonus the Rangers paid the young man earlier this month. Elsewhere in the league, De- troit Tigers swept a twi-night doubleheader from Milwaukee Brewers 6-3 and 5-4, Baltimore Keminett shines for local club Contrary to reports earlier, Lome Kemmett was not select- ed the outstanding male swim- mer with Ross Nelson of Ed- monton. The first story from Calgary said the pair had tied for honors. Today, however, Doug Jamie- son, a 19-year-old, from the Ed- monton Glenora Club was named winner along with Bren- da Holmes of Edmonton Jas- per. However, Kemmett did do very well in the provincial se- nior and 15-17 year old age group finals held in Calgary recently. Keminett won the 200-metre butterfly, came second in the 100-metre butterfly and fourth and fifth respectively in the 400 and 200-metre individual medley. Tim Emerson emerged with two first place ribbons in the competition. He won the 100 and 200 metre backstroke fin- als in the 15-17 category. In the open class Henry Van Egteren was first in the individ- ual medley and second in the freestyle. Jeff Rutledge chalk- ed up a win in the freestyle and was fourth in the breast- stroke. Glen Van Buren placed sec- ond in the freestyle and Susan Hunt in the senior backstroke. Shirley Van Dyck and Bill Sym also performed well for the Lethbridge Amateur Swim Club. On the other hand, Gavin Fenton and Mary Ann Hughes paced the YMCA Stingrays in the same meet. Miss Hughes, in the gals 15- 17 group, won the 100-metre breaststroke and placed well in the freestyle. Fenton was fourth in the boys' 15-17 100-metre backstroke. I Orioles blanked New York Yan- kees 4-0, California Angels topped Chicago White Sox 3-1 and Oakland Athletics nipped Kansas City Royals 3-2. Cleve- land Indians' gams at Boston was rained out. Young Clyde created more excitement than the Rangers have stirred up in two years at Arlington. The start of the game was delayed 15 minhtes by the traffic. Manager Whitey Herzog lim- ited Clyde to five innings and the first two were a real adven- ture. Clyde walked the first two batters and wondered if he might not bo in over his head, but then settled down and struck out the next three bat- ters. In the second inning, he walked four more in between another strikeout and a two-run homer by rookie Mike Adams. He was helped out in that in- ning when two of the Twins who walked were thrown out trying to steal by catcher Ken Suarez. "I was lucky they didn't kill said Clyde who struck out eight, walked seven and surren- dered only Adams's homer. Then Bill Gogolewski took over, limiting the Twins to just three more hits and saving the vic- tory for the teen-ager. Clyde pitched the equivalent of nine innings, deliverying more than 100 pitches. Joe Toree did something he had never done before, but Mike Schmidt's feat was old hat. What 13-year-major league veteran Torre did Wednesday night was hit for the cycle- single, double, triple and home St. Louis Cardinals pounded out 22 hits and blasted Pittsburgh 15-4, pushing the Pi- rates back into the National League East cellar. What Philadelphia rookie Sctmidt did was repeat his act of nine days earlier when he followed an intentional walk to Tommy Button with a grand slam home run against New York. Along with a solo shot an inning earlier, it powered the Phillies to a 7-1 victory over New York Mets and a double- header split as left-hander Mike Wallace made his major league debut and scattered seven hits. The Mets scored seven runs In the first inning of the opener and held on for a 7-6 triumph. Chicago Cubs continued to run away with the National League's East Division, beating Montreal Expos 6-1. The second game of the twin bill was halted by darkness after 12 innings tied at 3-3 and was to be com- pleted before today's scheduled contest. Elsewhere, Houston Astros whipped Cincinnati Reds 10-2 and San Frcncisco Giants edged Atlanta Braves 6-5. Los Angeles and San Diego were not sched- uled.

FORD RENT-A-CAR CALGARY (Special) Cal- gary Giants belted 15 hits for the second straight night and thrashed Calgary Jimmies 16-0 in an Alberta Major Baseball League game Wednesday. Giants tagged loser Juan Eichelberger for six runs in the second and third innings, then sent 14 men to the plate in the fourth and scored nine times against two relief pitchers. They added a single run in the ninth inning. Right-hander Craig Clayson blanked the Jimmies on two hits, striking out eight and al- lowing only three men on base in going the distance. Infielder Dave Edson drove in two runs with a double and two singles, while John Ed- wards and Al Twa also had three hits each. Twa had four RBIs. Paul Sullivan will get the nod for the Lethbridge Lakers to- night when they meet the high- flying Giants at Henderson Sta- dium tonight at eight o'clock. Lakers, in a leap-frog battle for top rung in the southern division of the six-team league with the Giants the past three weeks, dropped a 7-3 verdict to the Calgarians in Calgary Tuesday night. The Giants rapped out 15 hits and took advantage of four Laker errors to win going away. After tonight's encounter the Lakers head for Edmonton and a weekend set with the Block- ers. They play Saturday night and again Sunday afternoon. Lakers' manager Ron Taylor would like nothing better than to upend the Giants tonight and move into a share of first place in the south division with the Giants. With the Giants at 104 and the Lakers 9-5 a Laker win would deadlock the two clubs. Not only that, it would out more distance between the Gi- ants-Lakers and Jimmies in the battle for playoff positions. The top two dubs from each divi- sion move into the playoffs. SNAP STREAK Meanwhile in Red Deer the Generals snapped a five-game losing streak and regained a share of first place in the northern division of the Alber- ta League by dumping Edmon- ton Blockers 17-2. Generals staked newcomer Bob Koehler to a nine-run lead in the first inning and the left- hander from Trois-Rivieres, Que., scattered 10 hits in a seven-inning stint before Don Pasutto mopped up. Edmonton's runs carne off back-to-back homers by Dick Thomson and Brian Betts in the sixth inning. Red Deer, led by Irv Horns, an import from New York City, roughed up three Edmon- ton pitchers for 18 hits. Horns five-for-six at the plate, smash- ed two solo homers, drove in six runs and lifted his batting average to .454. Steve Purcell was the vic- tim of the Generals' nine-run outburst in the first inning. He was chased in the second and Winder held Red Deer scoreless until Horns homered in the fifth. A one game suspension a ga i n s t Larry Nakoneckny, third baseman with the Giants, was announced Wednesday by Russ Parker, commissioner of the Alberta Major Baseball League. Nakoneckny deliberately fir- ed a baseball at base umpire Ernie Watson in protest of the umpire's call on a play at first base in last Sunday's game wfth Edmonton Blockers, Parker said. The suspension will be en- forced during tonight's game between Giants and the Lakers. Blocked 000 001 13 I General!
