Royals Beaten By Baltimore By THE ASSOCJVl'F'" -r'JSSS Please Mos Dra- bowsky: I'.'s Beyer ever until the last man is out it's never over until the last man is out. Drabowsky and his1 Kansas City Royals mates figured they had finally beaten Baltimore Orioles, but couldn't get the last out Thursday night. Frank Robinson socked a two-out, three-run homer off re- liever Drabowsky's first pitch to give the Orioles a dramatic 7-6 victory, their 17th straight over the Royals. The last and only time the ex- pansion Royals beat Baltimore was in the first meeting' last year. "Robinson's homer was dis- turbing, but I should've retired one of the other batters and not let that big guy get up said Drabowsky, who issued walks to pinch hitters Terry Crowley and Merv Rettemund before Robinson's shot. The Baltimore right fielder has been tough ,on Drabowsky since Moe left the Orioles last year. "Robinson got his Z.SOOth hit off me last recalls Dra- bowsky, who helped the Orioles beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 1966 World Series. In other American League games', Milwaukee Brewers bounced Boston Red Sox 5-1 be- hind Denny Walton's hitting; Minnesota Twins shut off a late rally by Detroit to beat the Ti- gers 9-6; Roy White's two Ho- mers powered'New York Yan- kees over Oakland Athletics 7-3 and California Angels crushed Washington Robinson's homer erased a 6-4 Royal lead built on Bob Oliver's four REI. Drabowsky was philosophical. "I guess I'm starting on my second 100 said the tall right-hander, who lost his 100th major league game. Meanwhile in New York, Wes Parker realized an ambi- tion that has been nagging him for two years when he hit for the cycle Thursday night to spark Los Angeles Dodgers to a 7-4 10-inning victory over the world champion New York Mets. After smacking a. double, homer and single earlier, the slick-fielding Los Angeles first baseman slammed a.tie-break- ing two-run triple in the 10th in- ning as the Dodgers erupted for three runs. The setback left the second- place Mets with a 13-13 record 7-13 in games Tom Seaver hasn't started. Elsewhere in the National League, red-hot Cincinnati Reds downed Chicago Cubs 5-2, Mont- real Expos trounced San Fran- cisco Giants 15-8, San Diego Padres trimmed Philadelphia Phillies 8-2 and Pittsburgh Pir- ates beat Houston Astros 9-5. Atlanta and St. Louis weren't scheduled. Parker called his hitting dis- play "about the biggest thrill I've ever had in baseball." "I've thought about this ever since I just missed doing it against Cincinnati two years Parker disclosed. "I had a single, double and triple and my last at-bat I missed a home run by a foot. The don't remember who it caught it leaping against the wall." Both expansion Expos and their hitting shoes on. Montreal lashed 15 hits, in- cluding the first home runs of the year by Jim Faifey and Mack Jones, in blasting the Giants. Rookie Carl Morton staggered to his third win in a row. Willie Mays hit homer No. 605 for the losers. A two-run single by ex-Giant Jack Hiatt highlighted a six-run burst in the fifth inning that shoved the Expos in front for good. It was the most runs scored in a game by the Expos in then- two-year history. Nate Colbert hit two solo ho- mers for the Padres against Philadelphia and shortstop Steve Huntz, brought up from the minors less than two weeks ago, cracked his fourth homer and drove in three runs. Colbert has nine. award goes to the top defence- man. The Lady Byng is for the player "adjudged to have exhib- ited the best type of sportsman- ship and gentlemanly conduct, combined'with a high standard of playing ability. Orr, who during the regular season became the first def- enceman ever to win the Art Ross Trophy as scoring cham- pion, thus becomes only the sec- ond player to win three individ- ual awards in one season. Stan Mikita of Chicago Black Hawks twice won the Ross, Hart and Lady Byng awards ir the same and 1967-68. On" scored a record 33 goals and 120 points for a record per- formance by a defenceman. He had 87 assists, a record in this category. The balloting was by mem- bers of the National Hockey League Writers' Association in the 12 NHL cities. Points were awarded on a basis of five for first, three for second and one for third. Each winner receives per award. In each of the four awards, each runner-up re- ceives Shannon Fit To Play ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Cardinals announced Thursday that third baseman Mike Shannon has been pron- ounced physically fit and will accompany the team to Atlanta for a three-game series begin- ning Friday. Shannon, 30, was placed on the disabled list after he was discovered to have nephritis March 18. Crozier Tired Of Television BARRIE, Ont. (CP) Roger Crozier, star goalie for Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League, says television makes him tired. In a dinner speech Wednesday night, Crozier criticized the NHL for permitting the Colum- bia Broadcasting System to dic- tate weekend scheduling. "When a team plays on a Sat- urday night out of town and has to be ready for a home game Sunday it is hard on the he said. "Players do not get to bed until 4 a.m. following a tiring trip and to be ready for a game at one in the afternoon is a bit much." Such scheduling, he said, did not exist before CBS began carrying a "game of the on Sundays.

"I may alternate Wayne Wood and John Garrett for the rest of the series." Wood played the opening game of the series Wednesday night and made some good saves in the. Canadiens 9-4 win. He looked weak on a couple of goals in the series opener and was lackadaisical in Thursday's practice. Garrett, called up from Peter- borough Petes of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A series for the playoffs, played most of the games in the East- ern final against Quebec Rem- parts, won by Canadiens in three straight games. Bedard said he lakes a goalie's work in practice into consideration and Garrett was much sharper than Wood Thurs- day. "If a guy is good in practice, he'll be good in a game." NO OTHER CHANGES Bedard doesn't plan any other lineup changes which means Scott MacPhail will be the right winger for team captain Gilbert Perreault. MacPhail has played ex- tremely well since taking over the spot from Hartland IViona- hah last Saturday in Quebec. In Wednesday's game, MacPhail missed a couple of good scoring chances but still played well de- fensively. Jack Dunn, coach of the Sas- katchewan Junior Hockey League champions, said he will probably not have any changes in his lineup. Dunn plans to go with goal- tender Jerome Mzarek, picked up from Moose Jaw Camicks of the SJHL for the playoffs. "I've seen Mzarek play better than he (fid Wednesday, but I I don't plan to changt him now. He was a bit nervous just like the rest of my players." Mzarek said after Wednes- day's game be didn't notice any Montreal forward in particular and that they all looked good to him. 'I am sure we are going in win a game in this series. We don't have what you would call a super-star, but We have three well-balanced lines and the kida want to play. "We didn't play up to our po- tential ur Wednesday's game. I know we can belter." The third game of the series is scheduled Sunday night and the fourth will be played either Tuesday or Wednesday. All games are being played, in Montreal. Stampeders Sign Pair CALGARY (CP) -Calgary Stampeders of the Western Foot- ball Conference today announc- ed the signing of two new im- ports, quarterback Jerry Hend- erson and offensive guard Fred Alvarez. Henderson, a six-foot, 190- pounder from Washington State University, attended the Stamp- eders' training camp in 1969 but then had to spend six months in the United States Armed Forces.

League Opens Next Wednesday Cubs, Miners Both Stronger It will be strengthened team against strengthened team next Wednesday when the Leth- bridge Crighton Cubs tangle with the Lethbridge Junior Min- ers in the opening game in the City R.ecreation Baseball League. Both the Cubs and the Miners have benefitted from the Leth- bridge Flyers and the Leth- bridge Alexandra Monarchs folding their operations. Cubs have a vastly improved pitching staff over last year's club which finished second in the league's regular season standings. Is 1969, the Cubs relied heav- ily on the right arm of fire- balling Greg Lazaruk. This should not be the case in 1970. Righthander Andy Shorthouse may be the biggest addition to the Cubs' mound corps. Shorthouse last season threw strikes for the Calgary Giants in the tough Alberta Major Baseball League and had a more than respectable season. Also in the Cubs' camp are a pah- of ex Flyers, Dennis King and Merv Shankland. King was the ace for the Fly- etS last season while coach Doug Frier feels that Shank- land's experience should rub off on the other pitchers. John Petrunia is the other hurler attending Cub workouts and Frier will likely give him bis share of the pitching load. Frier has only five other1 players, besides Lazaruk, from last year's team turning out for workouts. They are catcher Glenn Wyrostok, infielders Jim Campbell and Bill Persley, out- fielder Howie Heggedal and utility-man John Vaselenak. Others attending workouts are catcher Bruce Gullett, who hails from Edmonton, infield- ers Tony Sutcliffe and Athol Thomas, and infielder out- fielders Bill Kenney, Rob Rut- ton and Cal O'Brien. Frier, to say the least, is op- timistic about his club's chances of finishing on top of the eight- team league at the end of the season. Equally as optim 1 s t i c, and rightly so, are manager Jack Kerr and coach Barry Golberg of the Miners. The Miners have also bolster- ed their pitching staff as they have added Craig Simmons, Rod Taylor, Don Hildebrand and Tim Negrello to then- two holdovers, Randy Wolstoncroft and Randy Maxwell. Simmons and Taylor join the Miners from the Flyers while Hildebrand comes from Taber and Negrello was used a great deal last year by the Monarchs. Four other Flyers have join- ed the Miners' ranks which, in itself, should improve the club. Hard hitting third-baseman Rob Roy heads the list while Bob Turner, who was one of the league's top outfielders and steadiest hitters last season also will help. Infielder Ron Berlando and outfielder catcher Don Diet- zen are the other two ex-Fly- ers attending workouts. Doug Yorgasonj John Moly- neux and Wayne Nielson have been battling it out for the atcher's job. Yorgason was the team's regular catcher last year. Other players from last year's club are Frank Gnandt, Cam Burr, Robin Ondrick, Bill Kerr, Mel Zatylny and Rick Campbell. Manager1 Jack Kerr mention- ed that he was looking more to whining the Alberta junior championship than to taking the league. However Ire also felt that the Miners were strong enough to make the playoffs and that they may even give it a run for top spot. "We've got good Kerr added. Cubs and Miners tangle at eight o'clock at Henderson Park. Other1 teams In the league the defending champion Vulcan Giants, Brooks Lions, Milk River, Enchant Red SOT and newcomers Taber and Pincber Creek.
