(AP Wirephoto) Orioles' bats silenl Everybody hits McLain By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Baltimore Orioles and Oak- land pitcher Denny McLain have a hitting problem. The problem is that the Orioles aren't lulling anybody and ev- erybody's lulling Denny. The Orioles did manage sis hits Friday nighl, which matched the total of their two previous games, but bowed (o Chicago White Sox and Wilbur Wood 4-3. The Athletics got McLain off the hook after the former su- per-star was rapped for four runs in the second inning by Boston, including home runs on Rick Miller and Tommy Har- per, but lost 7-6 on Harper's second home ran of the game in the 12th inning. Elsewhere in the American League, Minnesota Twins and Milwaukee Brewers battled 21 short of the longesl night game in AL fore play was suspended with a S-3 tie to be resumed before to- day's regularly-scheduled game, Texas Rangers downed Cleve- land Indians 3-1, New York Yankees whipped California An- gels 6-3 and Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royds were rained out. The Orioles, trying for their fourth straight pennant, are Ihird In the AL East and are batting a mere .231, but they're also a mere one game from the top and manager Earl Weaver isn't overly worried. "We got three runs off Wood and t h a t 's more than his earned-run he said. "We must have fit him better than some olher teams did. Maybe we're snapping out of it. We've been there before. Every year they ask us how come we're not hitting, but at the end of the season we win it by or 19 games." The White Sox jumped to a 4-0 lead against Mike Cuellar on a solo homer by Bill o! the season for the 1971 home- run two-run blast by Dick Allen and Pat Kelly's run- scoring single. The Orioles, held to two hits for seven innings, scored in the eighth on Andy Etchebarren's double and Bobby Grich's single ATTENTION PILOTS AIRCRAFT FOR HOURLY RENT Competitive Rates 1971 CESSNA 172 1972 CHEROKEE 1'40 SOUTHWEST AVIATION LTD. Phone 327-1561 Hanger 7 lethbridge, Alta. and got two in the ninlh on a walk, two singles and an error before reliever Sieve Kealcy re- tired Terry Crowley and Merv Rettenmund with two runners aboard. Despite throwing more be- tween assignments than at al- most any time in his career, McLain was clobbered by Bos- ton. He has surrendered 32 hits in 22 1-3 innings and has a 6.09 earned-run average. The Alhletics tied the score with four runs in the fourth in- ning, three on Dave Duncan's homer and went ahead 6-5 in the seventh, only to have the Red Sox catch up in Uie ninth on Ben Ogilvie's pinch single. LONG NIGHT Litlle did pinch-hitler Tommy Reynolds of Ihe Brewers know when he stroked a two-run game-tying single in the seventh inning that he would start a long night's journey into day. Neither team could manage another run before curfew rang after the 21st inning, with Min- nesota's Bobby Darwin rapping into a double play with two run- ners aboard. The longest night game in major league history went 24 innings in 1968 with Houston As- tros beating New York Mets 1-0. Ted Ford homered and three Texas pitchers combined for a seven-hitter as the Rangers dropped Cleveland out of first place in the AL East. Ron Blomberg drove In the go-ahead run with a sixth-inning Igrounder after Roy White j reached third on a walk, stolen base and wild pilch as the Yan- kees beat California. Blomberg then homered in the eighth. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "We want Willie! We want Willie! We want Willie Uie fans chanted. Willie Mays was making his debut Friday night in a New York Met uniform. But No. 24 never got the chance to show his stuff against his former team, San Francisco Gianls, much to the dismay of the fans who jammed Shea Stadium hoping to get a glimpse of their newest hero. It would have been perfect for b a s e b a 11 's top right-handed home-run hitter to step up to the plate and crash his 647th over Uie wall. The only problem, though, was that when a pinch-hitler was needed, a right-handed pitcher was on the mound for the Giants. And so, with one on in the eighth inning, the Mets trailing 1-0 and the fans hollering for Willie, Mets' manager Yogi Berra stayed with the tages and sent up John Milner. a rookie and, more important, a southpaw swinger. BOOS TURN TO CHEERS The fans booed, but the jeers turned to cheers as Milner worked Steve Stone for a walk and later came home with the tying run on Ken Boswell's dou- ble that knocked out the San Francisco starter. The cheers continued in the ninth as the Mets loaded the bases with one out against re- liever Jecry Johnson and Jerry Grote singled up the middle to give the Mets a 2-1 victory. In Friday nighl's other Na- tional League games, Los Ange- les Dodgers defeated Philadel- .phia Phillies 6-1, San Diego Padres beat Montreal Expos 5- 3, Pittsburgh Pirates topped Houston Astros 4-2, Chicago Cubs blanked Atlanta Braves 2-0 and Cincinnati Reds edged St. Louis Cardinals W. "I felt sorry for the Mays said of Milner, who had to face the wrath of the crowd. "But it didn't seem to bother him. And Yogi probably did the best thing by letting the kid bat." Berra stuck by his strategy, one he'll probably stick with the rest of the season. "If it's a left-handed pitcher, I use Yogi said with a nod toward Willie. "I don't let the crowd make decisions for me." Unbeaten Don Button finally gave up a gone 31 scoreless couldn't have cared less. "As long as we had five more than they did, I wasn't worried about that said the Dodger ace, who chalked up his fifth victory with a four-hitter against the Phillies. Frank Robinson gave him all the backing he needed with a three-run homer in the fifth in- ning and Bill Russell added a solo shot. "These young kids keep pull- ing together like manager Don Zimmer said of his Padres, "and we might shake up the West Division a bit." San Diego has done some shaking already by winning six of eight games. "These kids are all lulling, Nate Colbert and Leron Lee are leading It hut Enzo Hernandez, Dave Camp- bell, D e r r e 1 body's gelling wood on the ball." Lee did it against the Expos with a three-run homer. Camp- hell and John Jeter also deliv- ered runs with singles. Mike Jorgensen cracked a two-run homer for Montreal. Milt May's tie-breaking single triggered a two-run Pitlsburgh rally in the ninth that beat Houston. The defeat was Houston's fourth In five games. Bill Hands handled the Braves Lead changes hands FORT WORTH, Tex. (AP) A fishing pole, a beer can and a deck of cards served as the in- struments of preparation in Jerry Hoard's tune-up for the Colonial National Invi- tation golf tournament. Dave Stockton prepared him- self with a California hunt for rabbits, squirrels and snakes. Their methods, however unor- thodox, reaped dividends. They shared a one-shot lead today going into the third round of the tournament, five under par on the treacherous par-70 Trinity Kiver layout. "I hadn't plaj'ed in five or six days and I really didn't know how I was going to do said Heard, who turned 25 dur- ng his unusual preparation for ,he tournament. "All I did was fish, drink beer and play just fiddled." Armed with a .22 caliber pis- tol, Stockton said he pursued his quarry through the hills of northern California, but admit- ted: "I'm not a real threat to ihem anyway I couldn't hit the side of the barn." Heard tacked a four-under- par 66 on to an opening-round 69 while Stockton strung a 68 to a 67 for the 135 total and a stroke edge over Fred Marti and Lee Elder. SHARE SECOND Marti, co-leader, with Bruce Crampton at the end of 18 holes, matched par after an opening 66 and shared second with Elder, who floundered in a trap at the final hole, wound up with a 67 and then confessed: "My wife told me if I didn't win some money she was going to take me off the tour and gel me a job." Phil Rodgers' 69 left him two shots back at 137 while rookie Len Thompson and veteran Dave Marr were the remaining sub-par players in the field ol 102 with a 36-hole total of 139 each. Crampton limped in with a 74 to join Bruce Devlin, Ralph Johnston, Bert Greene and Bobby Nichols at 140.

ANOTHER FIRST for Lethbridge. The Letlibridge Fish and Game Association will hold the official open- ing of its new skeet range Sunday starting at 9 a.m. It is the first skeet range in the south country. It is located at the fish and game trap and rifle range at the north end of 10th St. N., a quarter mile north of the sanitary land fill and a quarter mile west into the riverbottom. The range will be open until dark. There'll be free coffee and doughnuts and 25 free clay birds per per- son. Shells may be purchased at membership rates throughout the day. It's not just a matter of coming out and trying your luck. This is a first for the city, so come and have a look at what skeet shooting is all about. Spec- tators are welcome. There's a play area for the youngsters. ON MONDAY the Lethbridge Fish and Game will hold its regular monthly meeting in the clubrooms on 9th Ave. S. There'll be films and free coffee and doughnuts after Uie business session. Meeting starts at 8 p.m. At the kids fishing day last Saturday held at Henderson Lake in the city, the rainbows were most unco-operative. Seventy-nine boys and girls registered. Steven Cameron caught the largest trout; John Peto the second largest and Mitch Trentini the most. The derby was sponsored by the fish and game club. THE FISH AND WILDLIFE division test netted Tyrrell's Lake nearly two weeks ago. The results would appear to be classified top se- cret, or they may be published in the 1972 annual report. Tests last fall showed there were very few trout left in Tyrrell's following the stocking of rainbows in the lake. There has been considerable speculation as to what happened to the trout because there were no- where near that number caught by anglers. Additional testing this spring was to either verify last fall's results, or provide some indication as to where the trout are, went, or -whether it's worthwhile to give consideration to additional stocking. AS FAR AS FISHING GENERALLY is concerned, activity has picked up considerably throughout the south during the past week with the arrival of the sunshine and much warmer weather. Not sure whether the installation of secondary sewage treatment facilities at Lethbridge has any- thing to do with it, but there is marked improvement in fishing in the Oldman River this spring. Ling have always been around in fairly good numbers each spring. It's the goldeye that appear to have made the real comeback this spring and pickerel (walleye) numbers are also up. Worms should be a favorite until it's grasshopper time.
