Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thuridny, Hay 7, WO THE LETHIRIDGI HUAID 7 THERE HAS TO BE AN EASIER WAY Dalton Jones of the Detroit Tigers does a flip after crossing home plate on a hit by teammate Norm Cash. Minnesota Twins' catch- er, George Mitterwald, was out-foxed on the tag and Jones slid over the plata head first. The action took place in the bottom of the first inning Wednesday night. K-K Kids Lead The Way For Brewers Milwaukee Registers Victory By THE CANADIAN PRESS Milwaukee Brewers' K-K kids, John Kennedy and Ted Kubiak, arent exactly threaten- ing the laurels of New York Yankees former M-M home-run threats, Mickey Mantle and Boger Maris. But their Wednesday night he- roics, were plenty for long-suf- fering Milwaukee fans as they hit homers that beat Boston Red SOT 4-3 in Brewers first victory in nine American League starts. Between them the K-K kids have 21 major league home runs, a good months work for Mantle and Maris in their-hey- day. Kennedys 18th career homer itaked the Brewers to a 3-0 in the fourth inning and, after the Red Sox caught up on Billy Con- igliaros solo homer and a two- run shot by Carl Yastrzemski, Kubiak unloaded the winner off reliever Ed Phillips with two out in the eighth.' Elsewhere in the AL, Balti- more Orioles defeated Kansas City Royals 3-1, Detroit Tigers took Minnesota Twins 5-2, Cali- fornia Angels downed Washing- Sunday Bout For Chuvalo KIMBERLEY, B.C. (CP) George Chuvalo of Toronto, Ca- ll adian heavyweight boxing champion, will meet Gino Ricci of Noranda, Que., in a sched- uled 10 rounder here Sunday. Chuvalo was to have fought Lloyd Joiner of Phoenix, Ariz., but Joiner is unable the fight. The bout is a warm- up for Chuvalo's June defence in Edmonton of his title against Charlie Chase of Montreal. ton Senators 4-2, New York Yankees held off Oakland Ath- letics 7-6 and Chicago White Sox nipped Cleveland Indians 2-1. Wednesdays victory was only Milwaukee's third in 20 games, all wins coming against the Ked Sox. Baltimore beat Kansas City over two seasons behind Dave McNally, with ninth-inning help from Pete Richert. The Orioles picked away for single runs in the second on Brooks Robin- sons single and a double by Dave Johnson, in the seventh on Don Bufords triple and a single by Mark Belanger, and in the eighth on Robinsons double, an infield out and Andy Etchebar- rens sacrifice fly. Carlos May, who tripled and scored in the seventh, cracked a one-out homer in the ninth to lift the White Sox past the Indi- ans, ruining a four-hit, 15-strike- out performance by Clevelands Sam McDowell. The Yankees shelled ex- teammate Al Downing and two relievers for six runs in the fifth inning, two on Roy Whites dou- ble and two on a wild pitch, and nipped Oakland for Mel Stottle- myres 100th career win.

"Seaver is tops with no ques- Alston said Wednesday night after the New York Mets pitcher beat the Dodgers 5-4 in cold and blustery Shea Stadium. Although Seaver needed ninth-inning relief help, he picked up his sixth victory this season and 16ft in succession over two years in regular-sea- son play. "He's tough out there in any said Alston. The near-freezing tempera- tures didn't seem to disturb the Met's strong-armed pitcher. "The cold didn't bother said Seaver. "I worked fast enough, but I made some bad pitches." AARON CONNECTS Hank Aaron crashed his llth homer and Phil Niekrp pitched a five4iitter as Atlanta Braves beat Pittsburgh Pirates 3-0 for their ninth straight and Phila- delphia Phillies rallied to edge San Diego Padres 4-3 in the night's only other game.

Seaver has lost only once to them in his career.' Leading 5-1, Seaver opened the ninth with his eighth strike- out. But then he walked Wes Parker, gave up a single to Bill Sudalns and a three-run homer to Willie Crawford. An infield single by Billy Gra- barkewitz and a bloop hit to right by Ted Sizemore followed and Seaver gave way to Taylor, who got the last two outs.
