Fingers was trying to throw me high fast balls inside I hit a fast ball right down the middle, and I knew it had a chance to go out While I was running down to first I was giving it some coaxing, yelling 'Get out of here Get out of here'" Weavei admitted he was pesirnistic about the Orioles chances going into the seventh because Blue looked like he was throwing good and having one of his days We have some good cuts at him, but weren't getting any runs HAD GOOD STUFF The Baltimore manager said his starter, Jim Palmer, was "all right physically and when he warmed up in the bullpen I thought he had pret- ty good stuff." Oakland drove Palmer off the mound with a three-run rally in the second "i just made bad pitches Palmer said "I had a better fast ball and breaking stuff warming up than I did in the opener, but it deserted me when I got out on the mound Palmer who blanked Oakland 6-0 on five hits in the opener, added his pitches "were right down the middle and when I tried to trick Dick Green he hit a slider CHAMP MEETS ITALIAN LOS ANGELES (AP) Rodolfo Gonzalez will defend his World Boxing Council lightweight championship Oct 27 against Italy's Antonio Puddu at the Sports Arena. dressing room. The two sparked the Baltimore Orioles to a 5-4 win over Oakland Athletics to force a fifth game in the American League playoff Defensive story CONTACT By JIM WHITELAW The Lethbndge Collegiate Institute Rams' defensive philosophy endeavours to make themselves defensively strong from end to end and therefore, control what the offensive team wishes to do If we can prevent a team from penetrating for good yardage from end to end then we know that they will end sweep us and also try to pass against us We try to be strong from end to end by selecting our strongest personnel for those positions and also by working on numerous drills By forcing a team to run wide and to pass, we feel we are making a team do what we know they will do thus giving us an advantage High schools generally speaking do not pass for a very high percen- tage, for example in the last two games one team passed for four completions out of 20 and the other two out of nine Our defensive halves and ends have averaged over two interceptions a game with Kelly Wilde having picked off five passes With the low number of passes completed but with fwo interceptions a game, a team often loses more than thev gam However, a pass can often result in a very quick touchdown and we have to be very careful in our coverage especially against passes thrown by Derek Redman quarterbacking the experienced Winston Churchill Bulldogs Our philosophy seems to work as very few teams last year scored on us and this year just five touchdowns in five games We held one good running team to 198 yards with 95 yards oc- curring in the last eight minutes against our second and third string boys Three of the five touchdowns have been against these same fellow but this is where the second stringers get valuable experience for next plus added incentive to prac- tise We will often work out of a six man line and its variations, the Oklahoma 5-4 the eight man line and periodically will stunt However stunting can often hurt a team if performed at the wrong time A coach can tell if his defense is doing a job if they hold a team to moderate gains but regular long gams means good execution on the part of the offensive team or generally a breakdown of assignments on the part of the defensive club All the clubs in our conference have improved their defenses considerably and in the next three the fans can expect to see even better defense because of consistency of coaching and the minor league is improving in calibre every vear Ballard saw game TORONTO (CP) Harold Ballard president of Maple Leaf Gardens who learned earlier in the day he will be gi anted parole Oct 18. was a spectator Wednesday night at the National Hockev League game between Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres.
