Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, May 24, 1973 THE LETHBKIDGE HERALD Shortstop booed for 12 straight innings Detroit fans still remember, Campaneris By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS For 12 innings Friday night the only sounds coming out of Tiger Stadium were boos, loudly and continuously. In the 13th, however, Detroit fans were cheering wildly as the Tigers scored the only run in a 1-0 victory over Oakland Athletics. Elsewhere in the American League, New York Yankees overcame Texas Rangers 9-T, California Angels defeated Mil- waukee Brewers 5-3, Kansas City Royals edged Minnesota Twins 54 in 10 innings and Cleveland Indians slugged Chi- cago White Sox 8-3. Afternoon games today have Texas at New York, Oakland at Detroit and California in Mil- waukee. The late games are Boston at Kansas City, Balti- more at Minnesota and Chicago entertaining Cleveland. It's a full slate of afternoon games Sunday with Oakland at Detroit, Cleveland at Chicago, Baltimore at Minnesota, Cali- fornia at Milwaukee, Texas at New York and Boston in Kan- sas City. For the most part, the un- complimentary sounds were part of Detroit's welcome for Bert Campaneris. The Detroit spectators wanted Oakland's shortstop to know that they re- member. So they booed. PLAYOFFS RECALLED What they remembered was an incident in last year's De- troit-Oakland American League playoff game. Campaneris didn't like the feel of Lerrin LaGrow's pitch against his ankle, so he returned the favor. He tossed his bat where the De- troit pitcher's head was sup- posed to be. Fortunately, the 6- foot-5 pitcher ducked. This was the first time Camp- ar.eris had returned to the scene of the crime, for which he and his bat were forced to sit out Oakland's first 10 games. Besides releasing their vocal energies on Campaneris, the fans had plenty of abuse left for their regular um- pires. The game was scoreless in the bottom of the 10th when Joe Rudi's throw and Ed Brink- man arrived at the plate simul- taneously. Umpire Larry McCoy gave the throw the edge. The Detroit fans disagreed. They booed. De- troit manager Billy Martin also disagreed. He charged out to- wards the plate. Another umpire, Nestor Chy- lak, held Martin in a bear hug while the Detroit skipper at- tempted to twist away. McCoy wasn't overly impressed with Martin's act and gave it a base- ball closing quick ejection. Detroit won when rookie Dick Sharon's second major league hit scored Mickey Stanley In the bottom of the 13th. Cleveland gave the White Sox a taste of their own medicine. "Chicago is supposed to have the power but we got the home runs said Indian man- ager Ken Aspromonte. Chris Chambliss and Charlie Spikes slammed two-run homers while Oscar Gamble and Dave Dun- can added solo shots. In Milwaukee, Vada Piason hit a homer and a run-scoring triple, but the Angels still needed Steve Barber's relief pitching to hold oa to the vic- tory. The Yankees won a game they once trailed 7-0. Gene Mi- chael hit the llth homer of his major league career to give the Yankees the lead and victory. Kansas City's Bruce Dal Can- ton came into a ninth-inning, bases-loaded, no-out situation with the Twins needing just one run to win. Dal Cantonkept the winning run on third by fanning Bobby Darwin, making Tony Olive hit into a force play and getting Jim Holt on a fly ball Gail Hopkins' lOth-inning single run to win. Dal Canton kept the tie-breaking run and he pro- tected the lead. Moose slapped Doesn't learn from mistakes By THE CANADIAN PRESS Bob Moose doesn't learn from has mistakes. He made the same mistake twice, and Lee May hit both of them out of the park. "I threw two sliders that didn't slide, and that was the ball said Moose after serving up two home runs to May that helped Houston Astros beat Pittsburgh Pirates 7-2 Fri- day night. In the other National League games, Montreal Expos trimmed San Francisco Giants 5-2, Chicago Cubs downed Cin- cinnati Reds 7-2, St. Louis Car- dinals defeated Atlanta Braves 4-1, Philadelphia Phillies trounced San Diego Padres 8-1 Royals take oil Calgary Trojans The Lelhbridge Royals will taste their first action in the 1973 Calgary Soccer League Sunday as they host the visit- ing Calgary Trojans.
