Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ______Monday, May 8, 1977 THE IFTHBRIDGE HERAID 9 Cleveland pitchers not giving up runs do you have to be to win? By THE ASSOCIATED PRIJSS Don Button's best was bril- liant but not quite good enough to beat Montreal Expos. "It was the best game I ever pitched in professional ball, and that covers eight the Los Angeles right-Iiander said Sunday after hurling 10 innings of one-hit ball, only to have the Expos edge the Dodgers 1-0 on reliever Pete Richert's bases- loaded error in the 13th. Elsewhere, Steve Carlton be- came the National League's first five-game winner with a 13-strikeout performance a s Philadelphia Phillies trounced San Francisco Giants 8-3, New York Mets rallied in the final three innings to beat San Diego Padres 8-6 in 10, Pittsburgh Pir- ates outslugged Cincinnati Reds 9-6 and St. Louis Cardinals scored three times in the last of the ninth to nip Atlanta Braves 5-4. Houston Astros and the Cubs were postponed by cold weather in Chicago. The only hit off Sutton, who walked four, struck out three and hit a batter, was Bob Bai- ley's clean single to right lead- ing off the seventh. "I've never pitched a no-hitter any level of pro Sutton said. "I'm disappointed that I didn't get it, but I think it would have hurt more if they had bro- ken it up in the eighth or ninth." HICIIERT THIRD IIUItLEU After Sutton left, Jim Brewer followed with two hitless innings before Richert came on in the 13th to be greeted by John Boc- cabella's leadoff single, the sec- ond Montreal hit. After Ron Woods popped up attempting to sacrifice, Ron Hunt singled. Clyde Mashore was purposely passed after the runners moved up on Duke Sims' passed ball. Richert then hobbled Mike Jorgensen's bouncer back to the mound as Boccabella raced home. The victory kept the surpris- ing Expos one-half game behind New York and Philadelphia in the National League East. And while Sutton didn't get his fifth pitching triumph. Philadelphia's Carlton did. The Phillies staked the left- hander to a 4-0 lead in the third inning after loading the bases on Mike Anderson's double, Tommy Button's infield hit and a walk to Carlton. Larry Bowa hit a sacrifice Ily for one run, Terry Harmon, who had four hits, singled for another and Carlton and Harmon also scored when the ball got through left fielder Garry Maddox. In the meantime Milwaukee's drought finally ended but Milt Wilcox is looking forward to many more scorless innings. The Brewers, shutout victims In three straight games, cracked the goose egg harrier Sunday after 30 innings of base- ball and scored a 5-2 victory over California Angels. Wilcox, meanwhile, is In the enviable position of battling Gaylord Perry for honors as Cleveland Indians, top right- hander. Milt fired a three-hitter at Chicago White Sox for a 3-0 victory as the Indian pitching staff extended its own scoreless inning string to 20. In S u n d a y 's other games Mickey Lolich became the American League's first five- game winner as Detroit Tigers tipped Texas Rangers 7-4, Oak- land Athletics suspended New York Yankees 7-5, Minnesota Twins belted Boston Red Sox 8-J and Baltimore Orioles beat Kan- sas C'ily Royals 5-4. Salurday. Cleveland whipped Chicago ]2-0. Dctroil heat Texas I Minnesota edged Boslon 3-2, Wilcox and Perry are most responsible for Cleveland's suc- cess. Each has a 4-2 record. And Wilcox, with his third suc- cessive victory and second shut- out, has a solid 0.33 earned-run average. "This kid is just too manager Ken Aspromonte said. "Milt has so much intestinal plain amazing." "He wanted this game so much and he wanted to go all the way. He just wouldn't quit." Wilcox had a chance to bow out gracefully after spraining his ankle in the third inning, trying to twist away from a tag play. But he refused to quit and instead had his ankle heavily LETHBRIDGE SAVE Lethbridge Native Sons' netminder Lonnie Howg makes a save Saturday night as the locals belted Assiniboia Chiefs 13-5 in exhibition lacrosse action.

(CP) Spokane Jets, playing under a new coach but with veteran players, have taken a com- manding lead over Barrie Flyers in their bid for their sec- ond Allan Cup in three years.

EXHIBITION AUDITORIUM N.A. TITLE BOUT: KAMATA VS RUHL THORNTON VS PORTZ 5 BIG BOUTS -52 SI.50 Hockey Association champions 3-0 in the first game Saturday. In both games, it was Jets' veterans who handled most of the scoring. Ken Gustafson scored three goals Sunday, with single goals going to Brian Harper, Bob Trembecky, Bob Strimbiski, Dwight Carruthcra and Tom Randolph. Only Harper did not play for the Jets last season. He played for Denver Spurs of the Western Hockey League. Saturday, Spokane veterans Gail Holden and Trembecky scored, with rookie Ron Huston adding the other. Huston played with Calgary Stampeders of the Alberta Senior Hockey League last season after several years with Cranbrook Royals of the Western International. Rookie Spokane coach Norm Johnson, in his first year of coaching after an outstanding year in the Western Hockey League with Portland Bucka- roos, said he was pleased with the victory and hoped his club could take the series in four slraight games. But he cautioner! his players that the Flyers were a tough club and could easily bounce back. The first six games of the series will be played hi Spo- kane, with the locale of Hie sev- enth, if necessary, still unde- cided.

The locals won the Challenge Cup 16-14. Saturday night the Sons led 3-0 after the first period. The two clubs were deadlocked at 3-3 at the 27 second mark of the final period before the Sons went on a scoring spree. Jerry St. Jean and Wayne Bowes paced the Sons with three goals each. Ken Boychuk chipped in with a pair of mark- ers while singles went to Reg Dawson, Bob Monkman, Bill Shaw, Norm Hall and Dwayne Kircliner. Lethbridge outshot the Chiefs 63-30. Sunday it was a different story as the Chiefs fired 71 shots at the Native Sons' net. Monkman, St. Jean and Don Kitchen accounted for the Lethbridge goals. Robin Adair led Assiniboia with three goals in the roughly-played contest that saw 100 minutes in penal- ties. Native Sons open their sea- son next Sunday against Cal- gary Shamrocks at seven o'clock at Henderson Ice Cen- taped and returned lo the mound. He returned to the plate, too, and helped his own cause with a run-scoring double. The Brewers, who had scored just 19 runs in their 13 previous games, had slumped to a team batting average of .159 before breaking out against California. Wilt happy Lakers are champions LOS ANGELES (AP) Wilt Chamberlain's scowl could scare a bear, but he wore a smile of satisfaction when he said: 1 think that winning this title should make life a little easier for me." The 7-foot 1-inch Los Angeles Lakers captain relaxed, today in Us million home and the easier life to which be referred reflected acceptance as a team player. He blocked shots, scored 24 points and hauled down 29 re- jounds despite a painfully in- jured right wrist as the Lakers chucked off years of frustration Sunday with a 114-100 victory over New York Knicks. That gave the Lakers their first National Basketball Asso- ciation championship since they came to Los Angeles in 1960 and their first since 1954 when they made Minneapolis their home. The margin in games over New York was 4-1, four straight since losing the opener of the best-of-seven series. Chamberlain has been criti- cized during his 12-year NBA career and accused of not get- ting along with his coaches or fellow players. As the Lakers won a record 33 in a row and total of 69 during the 1971-72 regular season, there was no such criticism. And after the final, Happy Hairston declared: "The big difference tonight and throughout the playoffs was Wilt Chamberlain. He showed how great he was in this final game. He was not up to par physically, but he dominated the play on the court." The 35-y e a r -o 1 d basketball millionaire was named the most valuable player in the series. OFF TO WASHINGTON D.C.

(Ed Finlay Photo) Off to Washington, D.C, Corrine earns berth Corrine Kometz of Leth- bridge will leave sometime to- wards the end of July for Washington, D.C. and the chance of a lifetime.

Golfer of the Year" DIG WE MUST FROM THE ROUGH When your ball comes to rest in deep rough, your first consideration should be to get it back in to try to make a miracle shot in the di- rection of the green. Choose a well-lofted club that will get the ball fly- ing quickly.
