Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDCE HERAID Wednesday, October 13, 1971 HERE'S ONE HE D1DNT NAB Brooks Robinson, the human vacuum double to score a run as the Pirates won 5-1 Tuesday. The fourth game cleaner of the Baltimore Orioles, is famous for robbing opposing hitters of the World Series is set for tonight, the first night game in history, with of base hits, but here's one line drive he didn't nab despite a great try. the Orioles leading 2-1. Jose Pagan of Pittsburgh drove the ball down fhe third base line for a Luke Walker gets call in key battle Pirates hope to square series tonight PITTSBURGH (AP) Left- hander Luke Walker, who has spent much of the season in manager Danny Murtaugh's doghouse, has the job of keeping Pittsburgh Pirates rebounding against Baltimore Orioles to- night in the first World Series game ever played at night. The Pirates, stung for two straight losses in Baltimore, bounced back with a 5-1 Tuesday behind the three-hit pitching of Steve left his personal scouting report 250 miles a three-run homer by Bob Robertson, who missed a bunt sign and swung away. If Walker can make a couple of mistakes like that, Pittsburgh will really be back in business. Walker has a deceptive record. Pie was 10-8 during the regular season but won four of those decisions in the final month. But Murtaugh suspected that he was working with a sore arm cardinal sin in the Pirate manager's mind. So Walker was passed over in the playoff series against San Francisco Giants and hi the first two Series games at Baltimore, when the Orioles belted Uie Pirate pitch- ing staff. "Sure, I've wondered a lot about why I haven't been said Walker. "But I just keep my mouth shut. No. 40 (Mur- taugh) has the answers." Huanwhile, Murtaugh hoped was the answer for the Pii-i against Pat Dobson, the fourth 20-game winner the Ori- oles have thrown at the Pirates.

Blass rescued happy father PlTTSnunOH (AP) Steve Blass not only saved the Pitts- burgh Pirates also rescued his father. Blass' father, Bob, a plumber in Falls Village, Conn, had talked about his son playing in n World Scries since Steve was six years old. And when young Jilass finished his three-hitter against the Orioles, father Bob got carried away. He leaped onto the top of the Pirates' dugout, attempting to congratulate his son, only to find guards barring his way. "They were trying lo ran him off the the pitcher said in the Pirates' dressing room, "nut they didn't hurt him and I got, him down." Asked if the performance that carried his father nw.iy was his best of the year, niass shot back: "How about of my "Jt was my most effective game of the year in so far as mixing up my pitches was con- Blass said of his vic- tory over the powerful Balti- more line-up. 'I had good fast ball, curve ball and slider." After Frank Robinson hit a Baltimore home run to start Ilie seventh and sliced Die Pirates' lead lo 2-1, Blass si ruck out the next two batters and got the third on an infield out. How did he feel after the homo run? "It relaxed said Blass. "I lost a little bit of Ihe tension. I threw as hard that inning us I did at anytime in the ball game. I felt if I was going lo go down I would go down with my best stuff." Pittsburgh finally caught up with one of the Birds' aces in the third game when Robertson rilled his homer against Mike Cuellar to put the icing on Blass's strong pitching job. The funny part of the homer was that it was supposed to be a bunt. Roberlo Clemente opened the seventh inning by reaching first on an error by Cuellar. Then Willie Stf.rgell walked for the third time in the game. That brought up Robertson and Mur- taugh flashed a swing sign on the second pitch. Robertson fouled the ball off, and in the dugout, Murtaugh decided to switch signals. "We saw that Brooks Robin- m was playing him deep at said Murtaugh, "so we decided to bunt." Third base coach Frank Oceak dutifully passed the bunt sign along and both runners saw it. But Robertson didn't. He swung away and the ball soared over the sign in right centre for a three-run homer. When the red-haired slugger crossed home plate, Stargell greeted him with a grin and said: "That's the way to bunt." That's when Robertson real- ized he had missed a sign. 'It's the first time I've missed one all he said. "If I had seen it, I would have bunted. But a bunt was the far- thest thing from my mind. I wanted to swing the bat." When- Robertson got to the dugout he went over to Mur- taugh. "I guess I fouled the slugger said when he got to the dugout. replied the la- conic manager, just a hint of a smile curling his lip. CUSHION COMFORTABLE The three-run cushion was plenty for Blass. who had been in a 2-1 pressure cooker until Robertson connected. "I was so excited about being in a World S'eries game, that I didn't sleep all Blass said. "I kept lying awake, think- ing about lots of tilings. The weather Frank Robinson Brooks Robinson Boog Powell." llass said he had watched the first two games of the Scries on a monitor television in the dressing room at Baltimore. I made some notes. And to show you how much they helped me, I forgot them and left them in Baltimore." "I was totally confused about what to do after they hit all those homers in Ihe first game and all those singles in the next said Blass. "Danny (Murtaugh) tolo me to pitch my own Blass said. "If I got beat, I wanted it to be against my host stuff." "The streak is over, but we're not going lo hang our Frank Robinson said, analysing the loss that ended a Id-game winning streak for the Orioles. "We'll jrst have to start over and win two in n row." "When you go into a World Series, you don't expect to win four straight and we didn't think lhat, even after winning Ihe first two. If we had won the third then we would have been going for four in a row."

HIU: Robinson No excuses offered Orioles praise Blass for solid performance PITTSBURGH (AP) The Baltimore Orioles praised Pitts- burgh pitcher Steve Blass after losing to the Pirate right-hander Tuesday and declined to offer any excuses. "The loss had nothing to do .with the field or the manager Earl Weaver said. "Blass was the total effect, ar.d Bobby Robertson applied the crasher." "Blass had a great fast ball and mixed it with good breaking Weaver said. "He put everything in the right spot. When I saw him in the minors, be couldn't get the ball where he wanted it." Weaver contended loser Mike Cuellar "didn't pitch that badly. Until Robertson broke the game open in the seventh Inning, Mike did all right." Robertson hit a three-run homer after Roberto Clemente reached base on a Cuollar error and Willie Stargell walked for the third time. PITCH GOOD "Robertson hit a low screw- Weaver said. "It wasn't a bad pitch. I guess he was look- ing for it." Just before Stargell walked, Weaver visited Cuellar on the mound. "I wasn't thinking about tak- ing him Weaver said. "I just toH Mike he couldn't afford to walk Stargell with Robertson coming up." Weaver said an eight-day lay- off between starts could have affected Cuellar, who last pitched in the second game of th' American League playoffs. Catcher Ellie Hendricks agreed. "Mike was he said. "He couldn't get his slow breaking stuff over. The fast ball was about the only thing he had, and he's not a fast ball pitcher." Hendricks said Blass, how- ever, "mixed his pitches and kept everyone off kind of game Mike is supposed to throw." PITCHED STRIKES "I was ahead on the count three Merv Hettenmund said, "but he didn't give me anything good to hit. He made fine pitches, mostly breaking stuff outside, and they were all strikes." Frank Robinson, who had two of the three hits off Blass, in- cluding his eighth World Series home run, said he hit a fast ball "up and in." We would have liked to keep Robinson said of a 16-game winning streak which ended, "hut we're not going to hang our heads. We'll have to start over tomorrow and win two in a row." While Pittsburgh left runners on base, seven in scoring posi- tion, the Orioles advanced be- yond first base only one time other than when Hobinson ho- mered. till, after Hendricks walked in the second, Weaver had Dave Johnson swing on a 3-0 pitch and he filed out to end the in- ning. "1 was hoping Blass would take something off the pitch and that Johnson would take it out of the Weaver said. "It was the hardest ball we hit all day except for Frank's homer." ANDY CAPP Southern drag races big hit The Lethbridge Le Barons car club staged its first ever drag race last weekend and turned out to be a great suc- cess.
