Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta (HE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, October 3, 1974 GOING HOME FOR THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY SEASON Ensure your reservations by booking early! CONTACT ART WILLIAMS VILLAGE MALI Herald Sports Cardinals hang up gloves, Pirates advance against LA ASSOCIATED PRESS It might be wise for catcher Steve Swisher of Chicago Cubs to stay away from St. Louis. He let a ball get past him in the bottom of the ninth inning Wedneday night and Pitt- sburgh Pirates took advan- tage, winning 5-4 in 10 innings for the National League East Division title. Chicago apppeared to have the baseball game won with tvvo out and a man on third in the inning. Right-hander Rick Reuschel struck out pinch- hitter Bob Robertson for what would have been the final out but Swisher let the pitch get away from him and Sanguillen raced home from third to send the game into overtime. One inning later, Sanguillen drove in the winning run with a bases-loaded infield single and the Pirates were on their way to the National League playoff. They wound up IVz games" ahead of runner-up St. Louis Cardinals who had their game against Montreal Expos postponed because of rain. That game will not be made up. The Pirates start the best- of-five playoff Saturday against Los Angeles Dodgers in Pittsburgh. Frank Robinson breaks barrier CLEVELAND (AP) Frank Robinson, for two decades one of baseball's greatest players and com- petitors, today was named the first black manager in the 105-year history of major league baseball. Robinson, the game's fourth all-time leading home run hitter and the only player ever to be most valuable player in both leagues, was named to succeed Ken Aspromonte as manager of the American League's Cleveland Indians at a salary estimated at a year. At the news conference at which Robinson's appoint- ment was announced by general manager Phil Seghi, the 39-year-old superstar received a telegram of congratulations from President Ford. The elevation of Robinson ended a long struggle by blacks to reach a meaningful management position in baseball. It places Robinson in charge of a team which has a top white pitcher who has publicly criticized him and a black centre-fielder who has been accused of being hard-to-handle. The announcement, made at a Cleveland news conference attended by commissioner Bowie Kuhn and other officials, came 27 years, five months and 19 days after Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier as a player. It came almost two years after the greying, blinding Jackie Robinson made his last public appearance at a World Series and said he wished he could one day see a member of his race managing a major league team. Jackie, no relation to Frank, died without seeing his final baseball dream fulfilled. Elsewhere, Los Angeles edged Houston Astros 5-4 uvlO innings, Atlanta Braves bomb- ea Cincinnati Reds 13-0, Philadelphia Phillies shaded New York Mets 3-2 in 10 in- nings, and San Diego Padres dumped San Francisco Giants 9-5. "We do make things inter- esting, don't said Al Oli- ver in the Pirate dressing room. Even Sanguillen's winning hit was a curiosity, a bounding ball to third baseman Bill Madlock that Madlock failed to handle. A Pirate loss and a Cardinal win would have forced a one- game playoff for the East title. "We were 14 games under .500 at one point and here we are finishing 14 games over said Pittsburgh manager Danny Murtaugh. "That's playing great baseball and you can't take it away from these guys." Hank Aaron closed out his season with his 20th homer, No. 733 lifetime, but refused to say it was his last game. He said earlier in the season this would be his last. Phil Niekro hurled a four- hitter for Atlanta against Cincinnati to become the National League's second 20- game winner. The first was Andy Messersmith of Los Angeles. Just for the record, what could be Aaron's last homer ever came off Rawly Eastwick. John Hale singled and Lee Lacy doubled him home in the 10th to give reliever Charlie Hough, 9-4, the Los Angeles win over Houston. Rookie out- fielder Greg Gross collected three hits for Houston to set a club single-season record of 184. Bill Robinson won it for Philadelphia over New York with a sacrifice fly off starter and loser Jon Matlack.

Black Hawks happy to leave By The CANADIAN PRESS Chicago Black Hawks should have stayed home or away from Montreal Canadiens. The Hawks received an ear- ly warning when they learned centre Stan Mikita and right winger Chico Maki would not be available for a National Hockey League exhibition game Wednesday night against the Canadiens. CENTRE 'Your Pro Store for Hard-to-Find Hardware" PHONE 328-4441 NORTH LETHBRIDGE WESTMINSTER SHOPPING PLAZA Early in the game, Chicago defenceman Keith Magnuson shot the puck into his own net while trying to clear it, and the Canadiens were on their way to a 7-1 triumph.
