Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wedneidny, May 10, 197} THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD NEW YORK SCORES Unable to slop, Boston's Ace Boiley smashes inlo the net uprooting it as goalie Ed Johnson goes sprawling along wilh teammate Carol Vadnais as the New York Rangers score their first goal Tuesday evening. Rangers forced a sixth gome in Ihe Stanley Cup final with a 3-2 win. (AP Wirephoto) Mays won't ha a Met want too much NEW YORK (AP) Willie Mays apparently won't be coming to New York after all least not in a New York Mels uniform. The Mels said Tuesday thai the San Francisco Giants' asking price was simply too high. "They want players, not. said M. Donald Grant, the Mots' board chair- man. "I told them it was im- probable the Mets could pro- vide the personnel they need." Tims the rumored prospec- tive deal for one of baseball's superstars was cooled in a day. Rugby Club manages split The Lclhbridge Miner's Hugby Club earned a split in two exhibition games they hosted last weekend. The Miner's edged Ihe Cal- gary Saints 14-12 in their first encounter, but suffered a 2G-Q setback to a squad from Medi- cine Hat. The Medicine Hat team was made up of players from the Medicine Hal Junior College and British soldiers stationed at Suffield. In their victory over Cal- gary, Bob Baunton, John Gray and Bill Turnbull scored tries while Willie Blrrcu added a convert. The Giants were reported to have asked for infielder Ted Martinez and one of two pitch- ers, either John Mallack or Jim McAndrew. The Mets wanlcd to give the Giants money instead of players. Grant, however, did not completely close the door on a possible Lrade. "I asked Giant owner Hor- nce Stoneham to set up a meeting with Mays, himself, and our Grant said. "He promised lo do so. "He said he will call me as soon as he reaches Mays. So, I won't know anylhing until Wednesday." Grant said he "wanted (o make sure thai Mays wants to come here." "The most important thing lo be developed before any further talks are Willie's reac- tion lo coming to Ihe Mets and the conditions altached to such a move. It is our position that he will be happy to come lo Ihe Mets. If he won't be, that's it. We don't want a disssatisfied player on our club." Mays said he wouldn't mind closing out his playing career hi New York, but was an- noyed at the way the situation has been handled. "1 don't want to embarrass the Giants." the 41-yenr-old centre fielder said in Mont- real, where he was with the team for a game. "But it seems thai they feel differ- ently aboul it. "I think I deserve a lot more respect from them than someone else. Thai's how I feel. I don't know how other people feel." Mays, always a favorite here, started his career with the old New York Giants be- fore the team moved to the West Coast. Among many ac- complishments.

Phone 3J7-3958 Marickal has one win in six starts Expos determined to stay close to top By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Juan Marlchal never has had a losing season since joining San Francisco Gianls in 19CO. Slartiny Uiis season, he had Ihe best winning percentage among active National League pitchers with more than one year o[ service, compiling a .670 mark on 221 victories and 109 loses. He had pitched 50 shutouts, tops among all active pitchers. He had the tlurd best earned- run average in major league history, a 2.94 mark, behind Walter Johnson's 2.37 and Gro- ver Alexander's 2.56. He ranked lath on the all-time list with strikrauls. He broke into the major leagues with a one-hitter against Phila- dcphia on July 19, 1960. Ho pitched a no-hitter against Phil- adelphia Phillies on July 19, I960. He pitched a no-hitter against Houston in 1953, and six times he was a 20-game winner, with a high o[ 26 in 1968. Now, Marichal is headed for his first losing season. After shutting out Houston Astros 5-0 in Die Giants' opening game, he has lost five in a row, including a 7-1 decision to Montreal Expos Tuesday night. Elsewhere in the National League, Chicago Cubs trounced Cincinnati Heds 7-1, Pittsburgh Pirates trimmed Atlanta Braves 5-2, St. Louis Cardinals edged Houston 2-1, and Los Angeles Dodgers at New York Mets and San Diego Padres at Philadel- phia were rained out. DEFENCE COLLAPSES A complete collapse by the Giants' defence in the sixth in- ning helped saddle Marichal wilh his fifth consecutive set- back. The Expos had nicked Marl chal for a run in the tlu'rd on John Boccabella's triple and Tim Foil's sacrifice fly and an- olher in the fourth on Boots Day's RBI single, before scor ing four times in the sixth with the help of four San Francisco errors. Bob Bailey opened the sixth with a single and went to third when Marichal fielded Mike Jorgensen's bunt and threw the ball into centre field. Ron Fairly then lofted a fly ball to centre. Bailey held third, but Jorgcnsen went to second when Dave Kingman hobbled Ken Henderson's relay throw. After Ken Singleton was pur- posely passed, Day hit a groun- der U> second baseman Tito Fuentes. Fuenles booted the ball into right field, allowing all three runners to score. Day then came home on an error by shortstop Chris Speier. TORREZ ERA 1.10 Meanwhile, Mike Torrez checked the Giants on nine scat- tered hits for his second victory in two decisions, lowering his ERA to 1.40 in 25 2-3 innings. "Every time they got a he said, "it seemed like there were two out and I didn't run NFL teams deny ticket conspiracy BUFFALO, Jv'.Y. MP) Lawyers for eight National Football League teams claimed in court Tuesday the teams were not engaged in a corspir- acy to force season ticket-hold- ers to buy tickets for pre-season exhibition games. Such a conspiracy has been charged in a U.S. district court suit filed by Angelo F. Coniglio of suburban Amherst, a Buffalo Bills' fan. His lawyer argued that Con- gress gave the NFL a "very j narrow Immunity" from the! anti-trust laws when the NFL, and American Football League merged in IMG, thus forming "a unique monopoly." SAYS DIDN'T SUFFER Frank G. Raichle, the Bills lawyer, countered that Coniglio could not sue Lhe Bills because, Raichle claimed, he had not suf- fered any damage lo his busi- ness or properly as a result of (he Bills' ticket policy. Coniglio Is an engineer employed by Ihe Strie Power Authority. II. Laddie Monlague of Phila- delphia, Coniglio's lawyer, said the U.S. Supreme Court lias per- mitted suits of this typo because of damage suffered by custom- ers. Judge Jolm D. Henderson, who ordered Ihe lawyers to sub- mit legal briefs within two weeks, must decide whether Coniglio can sue not only the Rills bul nil oilier IS NFL (earns that tic in preseason tickets with season tickets.

Tigers inmntmn lead Indians' rookie close By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The baseball strike lias been over less than a month but here comes Cleveland Indians' Dick Ticlrow starting work earlier so he can stick around longer. That may violate the basic rules of unionism but Ticlrow won't complain if liis prescribed earlier warm-ups enable him to pitch better and longer. Tuesday nighl, the rookie right- hander came within one out of his first complete game in Ihe major leagues as the Indians shaded Kansas City Royals 2-1. Elsewhere in the American League, Detroit Tigers downed Chicago White Sox 5-2. Minne- sota Twins beat New York Yan- kees 4-2, Oakland Athletics swept a twi-nighter from Mil- waukee Brewers 10-2 and 3-0 and Boston Hed Sox edged Cali- f o m i a Angels 4-3. Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles were rained out. Tidrow, a 6-fooW, 210-pounder who will be 24 on Sunday, began warming up 10 minutes earlier than usual Tuesday night. "His problem was the first or second explained man- ager Ken Aspromoiite. "He never had that trouble before. It had to be in his warm-ups. So we started early." HAD SHLTOUT GOING Tidrow had a two-hit shutout with two out in the ninth when Lou PmieJJa homered for Kan- sas City. After a walk and a sin- gle, Steve Mingori came on to get the last oul. Tidrow also delivered a two- out single in the eighth inning and Del Unser followed wilh a tamer for the Cleveland runs. Piniella's home run ended a string of 34 scoreless innings by the Cleveland pitching staff. The White Sox also ended a skein of 34 scoreless their punchlass hitlers, not their pitchers. The two runs they Campbell booed at hockey game OTTAWA (CP) Former Delroil Red Wing great Gor- die Howe made it apparent Tuesday that he is a strong admirer of National Hockey League president Clarence Campbell. Speaking at the annual Memorial Cup luncheon, Howe said "it hurt to hear" Ottawa fans boo Campbell when he was introduced at the opening game of the junior hockey finals Monday night. Howe got a tremendous ova- lion from the fans in the rink, but said at the luncheon he couldn't understand why Campbell should get booed. He said the NHL president had done a lot for the league, for pro hockey generally, for fans and had built wisely so thai hockey players could make a good living from the game. Campbell, who also was a guest at the affair, didn't hear Howe's speech. The NHL boss left early to attend Tuesday's fifth game of the Stanley Cup finals played in Boston. scored in the ninlh inning were (oo amf (oo (o prevent their third consecutive setback.

The Athletics exploded for the biggest inning in their five-year history in runs in the crushed the Brewers in their opener, Jim Slaton and Frank Linzy were the victims as Angel Man- gual drove in tliree runs wilh a double and sacrifice fly and Dave Duncan drove in two with a single. The wild inning in- cluded a wild throw by Linzy on a bunt by winning pitcher Ken Hollzman and an ensuing wild throw from right fielder Billy Conigliaro enabling two base- runners and Iloltzman to circle the bases. Chicago's Ferguson Jenkins, winner of al least 20 games in each of the five seasons, hiked his record (o '.'A, slopping Cincinnati on five hits. He lost his shutout on Johnny Bench's run-scoring single with two out in the ninth. Earlier, Glenn Bcckert and Jim Hickman drove in two runs apiece for Ihe Cubs and Riclc Monday collected four hits, in- cluding a homer.
