Thura. to Cloaad Saturdays__________ Graham Kelly History tells us that the last great showdown of the old West came on a Sunday afternoon at the OK Corrall when the Earp brothers plus Doc Holliday took the measure of a bunch of baddies come to town to do no good. This Sunday afternoon in the New West at McMahon Stadium in Cow town another showdown is in the cards when the Ottawa Rough Riders in the black hats take on the good guys in red otherwise known as the Calgary Stampeders. It should be quite a show because Jerry Keeling is back in town. Facing the Splendid Splinter from the Nation's Capital will be Pistol Peter Lisko reputed to have the fastest arm in the west. While neither one would admit to any hard feelings personally between the two. you can't help but think that Mr. Keeling like- ly resented being uprooted from his foothills home after a decade of service for the faithful fans of Calgary. Ironically, because of the affectionate regard in which Keeling is held by Stampeder fans, plus the less than scin- tillating performances of M any m ay have forgotten that Keeling made lew mistakes during the course of a game. He generally had a very low number of interceptions, quite a feat when you con- sider that the Calgary offense is built around the pass Keeling usually came up with good, varied play selection, constantly keeping the opposition off b a I a n c e Few will remember than when Jerry Keeling led the Stampeders the backs he had looked not too bad at all.

In the first game in Calgary. Saskatchewan surged into a 14-point lead due to the outstanding performances of Ron Lancaster and Bob- by Thompson. Seldom have 1 seen Lancaster play better. However., in the third quarter the Calgary defense came up with a key interception by Reggie Holmes tor a touchdown. Saskatchewan fought back. But given the opportunity m ihut MX'ouu iidli.

On route to victory and a berth in the Grey Cup final. Keeling Hugh McKinnis and Jesse Minis, both backs, to superb advan- tage. He threw when he wanted to but was infinite- ly more effective with the t H Keeling didn't really want to play this year. He sold his house and moved backed to Oklahoma. But Calgary needed him, so Coach Duncan said, and Keeling responded to the call. But the old days soon returned. Keeling got his chance to play quarterback when Liske left town. He was great. But when Liske returned, Calgary said. "So long. Jerry, it's been nice to know you." A crum- my move it there ever was one. So now Keeling is in Ot- tawa. Alternating with Mr. Liske, it is Peter who is likely to be considered the bad guy with Keeling in the role of avenging hero back to redeem himself in front of his admiring legions. There are many in- cluding myself who believe the trust of the Stampeders made a big mistake when they let Keeling go in favor of Pete Liske and Jirn Lindsey. Keeling is an excellent quarterback. He was never specatular on the field, but somehow, when all was said and done, he was successful. Colorless, but steady, Jerry Keeling provided effective service at the all-important posi- tion of quarterback. When he lamilia ized himself with the Ottawa way of doing tilings, he provided an important extra dimen- sion to the Rough Rider of tense. If Rick Cassata fails to move the club, coach Jack Gotta knows that he can always call on an experienced leader who will give his all, and in the process, make a minimum of mistakes while doing it. And the way this season is going, that means something. pass because he es- tablished his ground game first. The season before, he went into Regina in the first game of the play-offs and picked the Green and White linebackers clean with a brilliant mixture of passes and running plays. Coach Eagle Keys com- mented alter the game that Jerry Keeling had per- sonally ruined the Roughriders that after- noon. He had the audacity to do it in Taylor Field, too. Jerry Keeling led the Calgary Siampeders to the Grey Cup final on two oc- casions, winning against Toronto in Vancouver, and losing to Montreal down east. For the self-effacing gentleman from Oklahoma, winning the Grey Cup had to be the highlight of his career, even though the contest was mainly a defensive struggle with Marv Luster and Wayne Harris the stars. The victory was es- pecially sweet for Keeling because he had been a reluctant quarterback at best. Starring as a defen- sive halfback lor several years. Keeling's quarter- backing duties were those of a back-up to first Eagle Day and then Peter Liske. When Liske left, after the 1968 season, Calgary turned to Keeling to help fill a gaping void. In the tour seasons he led the club, Calgary lost out once in the Western final to Saskatchewan, made two straight appearances in the Grey Cup classic, and then, last year, finished out of the money. However, Keeling was hurt during most of the 1972 season. In other words, when the Splendid Splinter has been physically alright, he has bwn a winner. Cassata. Keeling has provided the experience and talent he has at just the right moments for coach Jack Gotta. Ottawa was winless in three starts when Keeling arrived. They lost the next one in Regina, butthen proceeded (o wheel oil five straight victories. Keeling played an important role in all but one. Coming into Calgary with Hugh Oldam. Terry Wellcsley, Art Cantrell and Jim Foley, Keeling will have lots to work with. In I ho showdown will) his old nemesis, Mr. Keeling should be ready to go. The Herald Sports MET FANS OVERCOME Great moment for Pete Pete Rose of the Cincinnati Reds, who had been booed in Shea Stadium, has his revenge as he con- nects for a home run off a Harry Parker pitch in the 12th inning to give the Reds a 2-1 win over the New York Mets and new life to the Reds. Reds right bock in it A ROSE, IS A ROSE, IS A NEW YORK (AP) "I wasn't thinking about a home run, but I've got to confess, I wanted to hit that ball all the way to the Pete Rose said Tuesday of the 12th- inning blast that beat New York Mets 2-1 and carried Cin- cinnati Reds down to the climatic fifth game of the National League baseball playoffs. The sturdy, 200-pound left fielder and captain of the defending National League champions must have recognized some poetic jus- tice in his role as fourth game hero, but he didn't gloat. "Sure, I heard them booing at me every time I showed my face." he added, referring to the animosity of the Mets' fans as a result of his fight Monday with New York short- stop Bud Harrelson. "They kept throwing things at me, too. "But that only makes me play harder." APPLE THROWN Moments before he stung at one of Harry Parker's high fast balls on a 2-2 count and sent the ball soaring over the right centre field fence between the 371 and 396-yard signs, an apple was tossed from the upper stands just to the left of the Reds' out- fielder. Foster will be a first NEW YORK (AP) Light heavyweight champion Bob Foster will get for a history-making boxing bout in South Africa, which could draw a crowd of it was announced Tuesday. Foster, a black, will defend his title against Pierre Fourie in Johannesburg Dec. 1 in what will be the first racially- mixed fight in South Africa's history. "The bout has been sanc- tioned by the South African Boxing Board of said Dewey Fragetta, American representative for promoter Maurice Towell. South Africa has had problems in sports because of its racial apartheid policy. The country has been barred from the Olympics and Davis Cup tennis competition. Agreement was reached Tuesday for the to be posted in the United States before Foster leaves for South Africa three weeks before the fight. Foster also has agreed not to have any other fights before he meets Fourie again, Fragetta said. Foster scored a unanimous 15-round decision over the South African in Albuquerque. N.M last August. Then came a tennis ball and an egg. ''I wasn't mad at anybody." Rose insisted. "I thought some of those profane signs were uncalled for. But the reason I tried so hard was that we got our pants kicked off us Monday and we kept blowing opportunities in this game." The entire Cincinnati dress- ing room seemed delighted that it was Rose who struck the blow that kept the Reds alive in the playoffs. "He inspires us he's our captain.'' said second baseman Joe Morgan, one of Rose's closest friends. "We were together Monday night and we talked a lot about what happened in Monday's game. "We went out to dinner together. And I tried to calm Pete down. I told him he was swinging too hard and in his eagerness was going after high pitches. I tried to get him to relax and just play his game. "I think he did, although I've never seen him as fired up as he was today." Pete quickly corrected his teammate. "There was that time in St. Louis this year when Alan Foster of the Cards hit me with a Rose said. "I hit a borne run the next time at bat." CAMPY POWERS A's, ORIOLES ON ROPES OAKLAND (AP) Bert Campaneris lined a leadoff home run over the left field fence, barely over the glove of Baltimore's leaping Don Baylor, powering Oakland A's to an 11-inning 2-1 victory over the Orioles Tuesday and giv- ing the A's a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five American League baseball playoffs. Campaneris hit an 0-1 pitch from Baltimore left-hander Mike Cuellar, who had allow- ed only three previous hits in a brilliant duel with Oakland southpaw Ken Hotzman. Baylor raced to the fence, about 25 feet in from the left field foul pole, and vaulted as high as he could in a desperate bid to rob Campaneris of his game-winning smash. The defending world cham- pions of baseball could end the championship series today when they send Vida Blue against Baltimore's Jim Palmer. Holtzman allowed only three hits and just one over the final nine innings. WILLIAMS HOMERS A home run by Earl Williams with one out in the second inning gave Baltimore a 1-0 lead and it stood up until the bottom of the eighth, when Oakland's Joe Rudi singled home pinchrunner Allan Lewis from second base with the tying run. The Orioles got a runner to third base in the top of the ninth, but Holtzman pitched out of the jam by striking out Baylor. The winning hurler struck out seven Baltimore batters and walked only one in the game. Cuellar, fooling the A's power hitters consistently with slow breaking pitches, struck out 11 and issued three walks. Campancris's homer was his second of the playoffs and Oakland's fifth. Williams, who had 22 homers in the regular season but none against Oakland, hit an 0-2 pitch from over the left-centre field fence for Baltimore's first homer of the Jesus Alou, batting for Ray Fosse, got the A's second hit of the game when he blooped a single to left field to open the eighth against Cuellar. Lewis ran for Alou and was sacrificed to second by Mike Andrews, pinch-hitting for Dick Green. Campaneris then disappointed the Oakland Coliseum crowd of 34.367 by striking out. But Rudi followed with a line-drive single to left field to knot the score. Cuellar had retired 10 straight batters before the eighth-inning uprising. The A's were hitless until the fourth, when Gene Tenace singled to left with two out. Cuellar walked designated hitter Deron Johnson on four. straight pitchers to put runners on first and second, but Billy Conigliaro struck out on three straight pitches. Conigliaro took over for Angel Mangual in centre field in Oakland's only lineup change from the first two games, both played in Baltimore. He was hitless against Cuellar but made two good fielding plays, including a diving catch of a drive to left-centre by Paul Blair in the first inning ORIOLES THREATEN After Conigliaro's catch. Green, the Oakland second baseman, hobbled a grounder by Tommy Davis and Baltimore had runners on first and second with two out. Holtzman bore down to strike out Baylor to end the scoring threat. The Orioles had no more for Wil- liams on his Davis led off the seventh with the only walk issued by Holtz- man. who was 21-13 in the regular season but only 1-2 against Baltimore. Baylor grounded back to Holtzman. who started a dou- ble play to erase Davis Green then made his second error of the game on a grounder by Brooks Robinson, hobbling the hard ono-hopper. but Holtzman ended the seventh by getting Williams to ground into a foreceout. The contest was played un- der mostly sunny skies with temperatures in the 60s. More fair weather was forecast for today's fourth game. 010 IKK) 000 00- I 1 0 000 000 (110 (JI-2 4 3 I jnd Ktclu'bcrran 11-0) and FOSS.C HKi Hal -William'; ill Oak- I 11) NEW YORK (AP) Pete Rose ripped a 12th-inning home run Tuesday, lifting Cin- cinnati Reds to a 2-1 victory over New York Mets in baseball's National League playoffs and forcing the series into a fifth game today. The triumph evened the best-of-five series at two games apiece. Rose, booed throughout the game as the villain in the wild brawl that marred the third game of the series Monday, drilled a 2-2 pitch from reliever Harry Parker over the right field wall. As he circled the bases, he thrust his fist skyward and stomped on home plate before being mobbed by his team- mates, who spilled on to the field to meet him. Rose had bowled over Mets' shortstop Bud Harrelson in a fifth-inning collision Monday and afterwards was pelted with debris in left field, leading to a near forfeit of the game, which the Mets won 9-2. ROSE BOOED Every time he stepped on the field Tuesday, the fans booed and there were many banners around capacity- filled Shea Stadium to tease the Reds' left fielder. But in the end, it was Rose who got the upper hand in this tense duel on a gloomy, over- cast day. It started as a matchup ol left handers with George Stone for the Mets and Fred Norman for Cincinnati. New York struck first, scratching out a run off Nor- man in the third inning. Don Hahn opened with a walk and moved to second on Harrelson's infield out. After Stone walked, Gwayne Garrett flied out with Hahn taking third. Then Felix Millan delivered the first hit of the game, a sharp single to left that sent the Mets in front. Stone, who retired the first nine Reds in order, protected the slim lead until the seventh inning. Then, with one out, Tony Perez, who had been hit- less in his first 14 playoff at- bats, walloped a long home run into the Reds' bullpen, ty- ing the score. One out later, Stone walked Andy Kosco, and Tug McGraw relieved for New York. McGraw escaped that in- ning and then, after an easy eighth inning, left eight Reds stranded on base as he weaved his way out of jams in the ninth, 10th and llth innings. The Reds loaded the bases with one out in the ninth but McGraw struck out Kosco and Denis Menke's attempted squeeze but was a pop fly that Garrett caught off third base for the third out. In the 10th, the Reds loaded the bases again, this time with two out, but Perez flied to Rusty Staub, ending that threat. An inning later, Cincinnati had runners at first and third with one out and the Mets brought their infield in to cut off a run at the plate. With a 3-2 count on Cesar Geronimo, the Reds tried the squeeze play again. But the bunt went foul and Geronimo was out. Then Dan Driessen sent Staub to the right field wall for his long drive. Staub banged into the wall and crashed to the ground but made the catch, again ending a threat. As Staub trotted off the field, the huge crowd of roared its approval. It turned out to be the last chance to cheer that the Mets' fans'had. mcmtldt! 000 000 100 V-u 001 000 000 000-1 Virnum (Juilett itii Carroll il-Qi ill Bor- bun and Bonrh Stone.
