Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Zeroes in on Stan Musial Aaron chases another record By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Hank Aaron has been chasing Babe Ruth so long, some people forget that he's also chasing Stan Musial. While Ruth's home run mark of 714 is prominent in most people's minds, Aaron is also zeroing in on Stan The Man's record of extra-base hits. The Atlanta slugger gained ground on both with a home run Sunday in the Braves' 54 loss to St. Louis Cardinals, The blast gave him 686 career homers and extra-base hits, tying him with Ruth for second place. "I get a kick out of watching said Atlanta manager Eddie Mathews. "He didn't do anything but walk off the bench cold and hit a home run." Because of bad weather, Aa- ron had not taken batting prac- tice. He had also missed two games because of a bad back. In other National League games Sunday, Houston Astros defeated Pittsburgh Pirates 6-2, Chicago Cubs blanked Cincin- nati Reds 6-0, Los Angeles Dodgers turned back New York Mets 2-1, San Francisco Giants checked Montreal Expos 6-3 and Philadelphia PhiUies beat San Diego Padres in a double- header, 4-3 and 6-4. Saturday, the Cubs blanked the Reds 2-0, the Giants whip- ped the Expos 10-3, the Pirates downed Astros 7-2, the Phillies blanked the Padres 4-0. the Cardinals defeated the Braves 2-0 and the Dodgers out- slugged the Mets 9-5. Houston plays at Pittsburgh in a rare morning game today. In today's other games, Chicago plays at Cincinnati and New York at San Francisco in the afternoon, and Atlanta at St. Louis, Philadelphia at Los An- geles and Montreal at San Diego at night. While Aaron continued his ex- tra-base assault, he also had a key single in the Atlanta of- fence. His base hit drove in a run that tied the game 3-3 in the fourth and then he scored the go-ahead run on Mike Lum's double. CARDS RALLY The Cardinals, however, won the game with a two-run rally in the fifth inning climaxed by Lou Brock's run-scoring single. Lee May backed the five-hit pitching of Dave Roberts with a home run, double, single and three RBIs, leading Houston over Pittsburgh. May opened with a bases- empty homer off loser Steve Blass in the second inning. The Astro slugger drove in a run with a third-inning double and another with a single in the fifth. Ferguson Jenkins of Chat- ham, Ont., pitched a three-hit- ter and Don Kessinger knocked in three runs, leading Chicago over Cincinnati in a game played in the rain. Jenkins pitched perfect baseball through four innings, until a 50-minute rain delay. Johnny Bench then broke Jenkins' no-hit bid with a single leading off the fifth after the teams resumed play. Ron Bryant scattered eight hits and drove in the first two runs with a single, pacing San Francisco over Montreal. Bryant blanked the Expos on two hits through the first five innings before yielding a run in the sixth. Clyde Mashore drove in the Expos' final two runs with a pitch homer in the ninth. Joe Ferguson hit his llth home run and second in as many days, and Don Button scattered seven hits and drove in a run w_ith a sacrifice fly, leading Los Angeles over New York. Ferguson's homer gave him the National League lead in RBIs -with 37. Philadelphia converted three San Diego errors into three runs in the first inning an< went on to beat San Diego in the opener of their double header. Del Unser drove in four with a double in a five-run fourth inning, powering Philadelphia to victory in the second game. Bullpen move pays off Umpire helps Herzog decide By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Manager Whitey Herzog of Texas Rangers hasn't been hav- ing much luck choosing his re- lief pitchers lately, so it stood to reason that umpire John Rice couldn't do any worse. As things turned out, Rice made the right the he wig-wagged to the bullpen in the seventh in- ning Sunday. The result was 2 1-3 innings of one-bit relief by Bill Gogolewski that preserved Sonny Siebert's 5-2 victory over New York Yankees and enabled the Rangers to break an eight- game losing streak.
