Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Two more blasts Hammerin Hank hot By TOE CANADIAN PRESS On a day when tennis hustler Bobby Riggs struck a blow for the elderly men of America, baseball slugger Hank Aaron two blows for them. Aaron, 39, is a kid compared with Riggs, 55. But he's in daily battle with time and his- tory, and, like Riggs, he von Sunday's showdown easily. Aaron slugged a pair of home runs, one in each game, as At- lanta Braves split a double- header with San Diego Padres. The Braves wasted his two-run pinch homer in the ninth inning of the opener, losing M. But his Pollard funeral tonight INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Fu- neral services will be conducted tonight for race driver Art Pol- lard, whose car exploded in a ball of flame and flying parts after slamming against a wall at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The crash occurred 90 min- utes before Saturday's start of qualifications for the May 28 In- dianapolis 500. He died at hospi- tal 63 minutes after the crash. PoJJard, 46, was the oldest driver seeking a starting spot in the Memorial Day classic. He was the 34th driver killed at the speedway since the first race in 1911. The 33rd fa- tality occurred one year ago to- day, when Jim Malloy hit the on the third turn during practice. He died four days later. Pollard, of Medford, Ore., was pronounced dead of flame inhalation after being taken to hospital. "Art had been driving the groove at the same spot earlier and seemed to almost lose it, then catch it at the last sec- said one witness. "This time, it looked like he was going to go smoothly through the turn when the car suddenly turned right and went into the wall." BOUNCES OFF WALL The impact against the outer retaining wall in the southwest turn tore the right wheels off his 1973 Eagle. The car bounced off the wall and cut a blazing trail across the track and into the grass of the short chute. Witnesses there said the car was bouncing, airborne much of the time, before it suddenly be- gan flipping as it came back on the track. It came to a stop right-side up, about halfway through the second turn, after strewing parts all along a foot path. He had been averaging more than 191 miles an hour before the crash. No one on the crash scene could see any evidence of a part breaking to cause the sud- den veer into the wall. "It was really said one driver. "It was just like Malloy's crash last year. There were no skid marks or anything like that. It just seemed like both of 'em suddenly lost con- trol and their cars veered to the right and into the wall." 10th homer at the season and No. 683 of his career helped At- lanta take the second game 6-2. For the season, Aaron, stead- ily advancing on Babe Ruth's homer record of 714, now has 22 hits, almost half of them homers. He now trails Ruth by 31. In other National League games Sunday, New York Mets downed Pittsburgh Pirates 64, Chicago Cubs swept a double- header from Philadelphia Phiffies, 4-2 and St. Louis Cardinals edged Montreal Expos 3-2, Cincinnati Reds shut out Houston Astros 2-0 and Los Angeles Dodgers walloped San Francisco Giants 15-3. In Saturday's games, New York defeated Pittsburgh 6-0, Chicago beat Philadelphia 3-1, San Francisco edged Los Ange- les 5-4, Atlanta thumped San Diego 14-2, Montreal beat St. Louis 3-1 and Houston topped Cincinnati 7-1. HOMEK WASTED Aaron was oa the bench in the first game and when the Braves got around to using him in the ninth, it was too late. By then, the Padres had a 6-2 lead and his two-run homer just made it a bit closer. Jerry Mo- rales had driven in three runs in the opener for the Padres with a single and a sacrifice fly- in the nightcap, Aaron was in the line-up and tagged No. 10 against loser Fred Norman. "I'm a little said Aaron of his fistful of early homers. "I didn't think I'd have that many this early. Of course with me, it's been a case of home run or nothing and the way I've been going this sea- son, I have to take what comes." Jim Beauchamp drove in four runs with a pair of singles, leading New York to its third straight victory over Pittsburgh as the Pirates dropped their fifth straight. Beauchamp's timely hitting helped the Mete to a 6-0 lead but the Pirates chopped the margin in half with three runs in the seventh and then added another in the eighth before re- liever Tug McGraw shut off the rally. Monday. May 14, 197S THE LETHDRIOOI HtMID Lacrosse collision Chris Roa (5) of the Calgary Shamrocks collides with unidentified hJanton Raider forward in final game Sunday in the Challenge Cup tournament. Calgary routed the Raiders 11-4 to win the two-day event with a 2-0 record. Shamrocks dominate action Hawks nab Dale Tallon CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Black Hawks announced Sunday they have traded goalie Gary Smith and defenceman-forward Gerry Korab to Vancouver Ca- nucks for defencenian-centre Dale Tallon. General Ivan of manager Tommy the Hawks said: 'Tallon is the big centre we have beau looking for. Talloo will play centre full time for us." Smith had 10 victories and 10 losses with a 3.54 goals-against average during the 1972-73 Na- tional Hockey League season. Korab had 12 goals and 15 as- sists. Tallon, 22, was Vancouver's first choice in the amateur draft when the club joined the NHL in 1970. He played every forward position plus defence and his lawyer, Alan Eagleson, said two weeks ago that Tallon was threatening to go the World Hockey Association if he wasn't traded. The Calgary Shamrocks kept the bookmakers in business as they lived up to their reputa- tion and captured the Leth- bridge Lacrosse Association Challenge Cup over the week- end. The Shamrocks, -who -were listed as pre-tourney favorites by the oddmakers, bested three other southern Alberta clubs in the two-day event which opened Saturday night and closed Sunday afternoon at the Actoms Ice Centre. The Taber Ebony Hawks, Nanton Raiders and the host Lethbridge Native Sons were the other participating teams in the two-year old classic. During the weekend, some 400 fans took in the two-days of action and watched the Shamrock's explosive offence and stone-walled defence earr them two straight lories and the title. En route to victory, the Shamrock's solid defensive unit gave them a hard-'ought 8-6 de- cision over the Ebony Hawks Saturday r.igit while their pro- lific offensive attack propelled them to a 11-4 lout over the Haiders in the championship fli'al In the toui.iey ooener Satur- day nigh1., the j-.bony Hawks battled the S'.iamroxs to a tie after the first period and a 4-4 stalemate at the end of the second.

Dune Mclntyre scored twice for Calgary. Brewers leading Who is that on the top? By THE CANADIAN PRESS There's something besides beer brewing in Milwaukee and it's giving the town's base- ball fans that old gecnutlichkeit feeling. Freely translated, gemwtlich- jdt means joie de vrvre. If you insist on English it's that warm feeling inside that comes from pod companionship and a baseball team. The good burghers of Mil- waukee knew the feeling well the Braves were winning National League pennants back n the late 1950s before they marched to Atlanta. Now it's the Milwaukee Brew- ers atop the American Leagua Sast by one full game following Sunday's 6-5 victory over Da- troit Tigers on Davy May's LOth-innktg home run, his sec- ond of the game. Elsewhere, Baltimore and New York inched into second jlace by splitting a double leader, the Yankees taking the opener 4-0 and the Orioles rally- ng to pull out the riightcap 9-6. In other games, Boston Red Sox xounced Cleveland Indians 8-3, ialifornia Angeles blanked Chi- cago White Ssx 3-0, Minnesota Twins downed Kansas City Roy- als 5-0 and Texas Rangers uraed back Oakland Athletics 2. In Saturday's action. New York blanked Baltimore 8-0, Cleveland defeated Boston 10-2, Milwaukee beat Detroit 6-2, Oakland topped Texas 4-2, Kan- sas City defeated Minnesota 4-2 and California dropped Chicago DEFIES CRITICS The AL East is so tight that the Brewers could bj in third place by tonight, but Manager lei Crandall thinks the team that finished dead last three lines in its four-year existence is for real no matter what lie critics say. "Let them he snorted. 'I think you have to go by what you see and not what's been in ths past." The Brewers trailed Detroit S- I but scored three times in the fifth inning on a single by Gor- man Thomas, Tim Johnson's triple, Don Money's sacrifice fly and May's first home run, his eighth of the season. Detroit's Gates Brown tied it with a homer and both teams scored in the ninth before May broke it up and also took over the AL home run lead. The Tigers played the game under protest after Dicfc Mc- Auliffe was tagged out ia a rundown between third and home in the bottom of the 10th. Manager Billy Martin said Mil- waukee catcher Darrell Porter touched McAuliffe after throw- ing the ball to third and chimed that constituted ob- struction. Umpire Joe Brinkman said Porter may have touched the runner, but since McAuliffe bad fallen down before the contact there was no obstruction in- volved. II 'S IN THE BOOK "There's no way there's an umpire's judgment involved Martin said. "The rule is in the book." The Yankees used home runs by Bobby Murcer, Roy White, Ron Blomberg and Graig Net- tles and the eight-hit pitching of Mel Stcfcelmyre and Sparky Lyle to win their opener from Baltimore. But the Orioles wiped out a 5-2 deficit with four runs in the fifth inning of the nightcap, highlighted by Larry Brown's two-run homer. Boston's Tommy Harper cap- ped a five-run sixth inning with the first grand slam of his 11- year career and Carl Yastr- zemski hit a pair of homers a5 the Red Sox came from behind against Cleveland. The Indians had jumped in front 3-0 on Dave Duncan's first-inning homer. Rudy May fired his fourtli shutout in five games, scatter- ing six hits as California cooled off the White Sox. Vada Pinson scored one run and drove in an- other and Jim Spencer hit hii first home run of the season. STAMPEDE WRESTLING EXHIBITION PAVILION Tor Kamata vs The Viking TONIGHT! P.M.
