Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, May 18, 1972 THE LETHBRIDCE HEKAID 9 'Detroit (ice first seven-game winner this year out to overshadow everyone else TUP; ASSOCIATED PRESS The coast is clear. AH Hie roadblocks have been removed. Denny McLain is on liis way to minors. Vitla Blue is still getting his arm out of hiberna- tion. It's Mickey Lolich's turn. Detroit's quality lefthander, who always seems to be over- shadowed by somebody else, knows an opportunity when he sees one. And he isn't passing up his chance at the American League's pitching spotlight. Lolich won his sixth straight game Wednesday night and be- came the first seven-game win- ner in the majors with a li-1 decision over Baltimore Orioles. He firerl a four-hitter and struck out six, increasing his American League lead in that department to 53. Elsewhere Wednesday, Cleve- Earns third consecutive LCI golf Andreachuk wins final Richard Andreachuk captur- ed his third consecutive Loth- bridge Collegiate Institute golf litle as he defeated Kelly Strong 2-1 in the match play championship final Wednesday. Andreachuk was two strokes up with one hole remaining which allowed him to cart home the Southern Stationers trophy for the third time in-a- row. En route to victory, Andrea- chuk bested Hartley Leppard 8-7 and then dropped Randy Dunlop 7-6 before the champ- ionship flight final. The remaining five flight finals were just as exciting as the championship final with all golfers battling it out to the bitter end. The reason for the tough matches is due primarily to the increasing calibre of players participating in the annual golf tourney. According to Jim Whitclaw, I who is the physical education director at the LCI, there seems to he more junior golf- ers now than in the past and that the calibre has increased tremendously. The flight finals showed how right Whitelaw is as they went down to the wire. In the consolation side of the championship flight, Greg Boughen edged Marty Maxwell after one extra hole. Colin Simmons squeezed past Brad Cox 2-1 in the first flight final while Bob Welch also needed an extra hole to beat Jim Dunstan in the second flight final. Doug Turner captured the third flight championship nip- ping Brian Thorlacius 3-2 while Brian Maxwell went home with the fourth flight honors slipping CHAMPIONSHIP FORM Richard Andreachuk displays part of the form that helped him win the LCI golf tourna- ment and the Southern Stationers trophy. 11 widow gels 84X230 DETROIT (AP) Mrs. Sharon Hughes, wife of former Detroit Lions flanker Chuck Hughes, has been a w a r d c d claim for workman's tion after the death of her hus-1 the field. band last Oct. 24 in Detroit.

McLain won the Cy Young i Award that season and shared it with Baltimore's Mike Cuellar the next season when Lolich won 19 games. After an off-season in 1970, Lolich bounced back with 25 vic- tories, 376 innings pitched and 29 complete tops in the majors last year. He was also runnerup in the Cy Young balloting, losing out to Blue. Now McLain's gone and Blue still hasn't thrown a ball in anger.

Martin is glad. Haller, veteran catcher ac- quired in an off-season trade from Los Angeles Dodgers started his second game as a Detroit Tiger and drove in four runs three o n an cigthlh-inning homer in De- troit's 6-1 victory over Balti- more Orioles. It was his first American League hit. "He won S19 from me to- night." Martin said smiling. "I give him S5 every time he advances a runner, and he gives me SI when he doesn't. I told him I'd he happy to lose it." Then the Tiger manager added: "I'll probably hear from the commissioner on this." HAS ONE HIT IN 10 Haller has one hit in in plate appearances in limited duty behind catcher Bill Pree- han, who has been a hot hitter all year. "I think at this stage of my career I'm happy with my role." said Haller, who is the team's player representative. "The point is, though, whether or not the club is happy with it." The previous day Freehan was hit from the "stands by shots from a pellet gun, al- though he wasn't hurl.

Fire- man Ken Saunders bailed him out of a bases-loaded jam and preserved the victory. Cleveland nipped the Yankees when Tom McCraw opened the bottom of the ninth inning with a triple and then strolled home following three walks, the first two intentional. McCraw's shot jolted reliever Fred Becne and the Yanks then walked Ray Fosse and Buddy Bell, loading the bases and set- ting up a play at any base. But Cleveland crossed the strategy j when John Brohamer worked j Becne for another walk, forcing home McCraw with the winning j run. Bobby Murcer homered for New York. Danny Thompson ripped a bases-loaded triple and Harmon Killebrew tagged a two-run homer, moving Minnesota past Chicago. TOTAL CLOSE TO TED'S The homer was the 519lh of Killebrew's career, leaving him two short of Ted Williams' total. The Twins play Williams in Texas this weekend. The defeat ended a six-game winning streak for the White Sox. Ken Holtztman scattered eight hits and pitched Oakland past California. Iloltzman also drove in two runs with a single. Joe Rudi homered for the Athletics. It was the third straight loss for Rudy May, who has not had a run scored for him this sea- son.

Alberta Major Baseball League wliich opens on the weekend. Larry Edwards was the key man in the infield for the Lethbridge Miner's last year playing at short-stop. Edwards is prime candidate for the same position in the Lakers' luic-up for the week- end and is regarded highly by the management. Nakatna toiled in I lie Lelh- brulgc Big League last season and is a prospective infielder as well as an outfielder. After a year lay-off Berlando has decided to return to the game of baseball and is seek- ing a position in the infield. Berlando had played second base with the Lethbr i d g c Flyers in 1970 and is hoping to get back into form once again. last season. "I'm taking it one year at a time." the veteran centre said.
