Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, October 14, 1971 Hookies in spotlight in first night encounter New glow in Pittsburgh as Pirates square series PITTSBURGH (AP) There was a brand new glow in Pitts- burgh Pirates for today's fifth World Series game against Bal- timore Orioles and it was put there by a pair of roscy-cheekcd youngsters who began the most important game of their lives kidding each other in the bull- pen. Bruce Kison pitched 6 1-3 in- nings of one-hit relief ball and Milt May, swinging for his buddy, stroked the pinch single that drove in the whining run as the Pirates trimmed the Orioles 4-3 Wednesday in the first World Series game ever played at night. Their heroics tied the series at two victories apiece and set up today's pivotal fiflh game, with the Orioles sending first game winner Dave McNnlly OUCH, THAT SMARTS Baltimore catcher Andy Etchebarren does a little jig at the plate after being hit on the back by rookie Bruce Kison of the Pitsburgh Pirates in last night's World Series game. Pittsburgh downed the Orioles 4-3 to force the series back to Baltimore Saturday. If a seventh game is needed it will be played Sunday in Baltimore. Foul by two inches says umpire You blew it-Leppert PITTSBURGH (AP) "The, ball hit the line and was fair- seventy million people saw you j b I o w' that one." Pittsburgh coach Don Leppert barked at! umpire John Rice. "Seventy million people saw me call it the paunchy Rice, a Pittsburgh native and American League umpire re- torted. "I saw it all the was foul by about two inches." Although the call on a line shot hy the Pirates' Roberto Clemente in the third inning did not affect the outcome of the game. The drive smashed into a con- crete facing on which is printed the three-inch rightfield foul line. Tire pro-Pittsburgh crowd of 51.378 roared a thunderous pro- test when umpire Riee ruled the ball was foul. Instant replay on the televi- sion cameras apparently failed to show the exact shot on the ball's landing to everyone's sat- isfaction. Members of Ilie Pittsburgh pitching staff who were in the won by Pittsburgh over Pirate bullpen just below the Baltimore 4-3. it produced a j spot that was the centre of the lively controversy thai long after the first World Series night game ended. dispute, said Rice was right. "I had a clear view of ball was foul by about six said Bob Moose one of the Pittsburgh relief pitchers. "Sands (Charlie Sands, bull- pen catcher) saw it, too. There was no doubt about it." Dave Ricketls, another Pitts- burgh coach, also backed up the umpire. The incident could have been vital. At the time, with one out and Rich Hebner on base, the Pirates were behind 3-2. A home run would have put them ahead 4-3- After Clemcntc's long foul, he singled. Hebner ultimatelj scored on a hit by Al Oliver which tied the game 3-3. Pitts- burgh went on to win 4-3, cool- tag what could have been tempest. Vic Washington makes the grade SAN FRANCISCO (AP) For Vic Washington, an ex- tremely well-travelled young athlete, the National Football League was a point of no re- turn. The 5-foot-10 player, who al- ready has been called the San Francisco 48ers most exciting running back since Hugh Me Elhenny, joined the team this slimmer after playing in the Ca- nadian Football League. :I wouldn't have gone back to Canada if I didn't make it he said. "It would have been mostly a matter of pride." "Sure he's going to quarterback John Erodic said in defence of the rookie. "Vic fig- ures he can get into the end zone every time. He does a lot of spuming. I'll tell you though, he makes things happen." Washington is from Plainfield, N.J., where he played high school football against current 49ers cornerback Bruce Taylor. PLAYED FOK OTTAWA He played two varsity seasons at Wyoming before flunking out. Since he had a year to wait be- fore becoming eligible for the NFL draft, he joined Ottawa Rough Riders of the CFL. British Columbia Lions claimed Washington last season, preventing him from joining the 49ers. He played both offence and defence in the CFL. Unavoidable says the man MONTREAL (CP) Al Gregory, coach of the North Shore Lions minor league football team, said his team's victory over St. Hu- bert was "unavoidable." "We had our second string- ers in before the end of the first quarter, but every time we ran a play it went all the he said. Gregory wasn't exaggerat- ing when he said 'every.'

"I played both ways for six straight games he said with a win, e, indicating another reason he decided never to re- turn. "The big difference in the leagues, though, is that linemen are so much bigger and faster down here. A back has to reach a hole a lot quicker." Washington, with 4.4 speed for 40 yards, can hit the holes quickly and also change his mind quickly. "When Vic gets the ball, he gets everyone alert because you don't know which way he's says Brodie. Bombers limping WINNIPEG (CP) Winni- peg Blue Bombers may be without; three regulars for their Canadian Football League in- terlocking contest against Ham- ilton Tiger Cats here Sunday. Running back Hack Herron, middle linebacker Mickey Doyle and halfback Bobby Kraemer have missed prac- tices this week and are doubt- ful starters in the crucial meet- ing with Hamilton, Winnipeg must win its final two games to retain much hope of making the Western Conference playoffs. Herron suffered a cracked breast bone and bruised ribs in Bombers' 22-14 loss in Edmon- ton Sunday. Doyle has been hampered for the last several weeks by a bad knee and Kracmcr has been hobbling on a twisted an- kle. Kraemcr reinjured his an- kle and missed most of the Ed- monton game. Keoii still sidelined TORONTO (CP) Dave Keon, who has already missed two Toronto Maple Leaf Games because of a freak accident suf- fered dvring a workout in Van- couver last week, won't be able to skate for at least 10 days. The 31-year-old centre, a sec- ond-team National Hockey League all-star last year, in- jured his leg a week ago while going through a forward-back- ward skating drill at the- Coliseum. The team doctor said today Keon would have to remain off skates at least another 10 days and it will be the following week before he can rejoin the club. Defenceman Rick Ley will also be on the sidelines for at least 10 days. He suffered a twisted knee in practice Tues- day after being checked by Jim Dorey. against Pittsburgh's Nelson Briles. It would be lough for the Birds and Bucs to match the dramatic show thai the pulsat- ing fourth game provided. And in the end, the issue was decided by two 21-year-old rook- jmfjfj ies who hang together just the' way you might expect they would. DRAFTED TOGETHER "He's my bcsl friend on the said Kison, grinning at May. "We were both drafted to- gether in 1968 and we played to- gether in the lookie league." They were a long way from those early professionals days when Kison marched out of the bullpen in the first inning Wednesday night. The Orioles had jumped Pirate starter Luke Walker for three quick runs and it was up to the slim youngster to sec that tilings didn't gel worse. Only a few minutes before he went into the game, Kison was joking with May in the bvJlpen. "He was trying to sing the Star Spangled smiled Kison, "and it was terrible. I sort of glared at him gave him a dirty look for the way he was singing." Kison got the Pirates out of j (lie first inning without further damage. Then Pittsburgh bounced off the deck with a pair of runs in the bottom of the first i doubles by Willie Stargcll id Al of whom had produced much in the se- ries up to that point. HITS ARE SCARCE Stargell's run-batlcd-in was j his first in post-season play and Oliver was l-for-10 until he de- livered. The two runs left the Pirates one down and Kison set about Ihe mission of keeping it that way. In the third, Richie Hebner singled and came along on hits by Roberto Clemente and Oli- ver. That tied it at 3-3 but the Bucs thought they should have had more. On Uie pitch before his single, Clemcnte had cracked a line drive over the yellow home run line thai circl'es the outfield fence. But Clemente's shot was waved foul by right field umpire John Rice, setting off a long protest. But (ho single stood and so did the 3-3 tie despite Pirate threats that left the bases loaded in both the fiflh and sixth innings. LOOKED FOR RUNS "I said Pirate man- ager Danny Murtaugh, "that sooner or later, we'd push one of those runs across." With one out in the seventh, Bob Robertson singled and moved up on Manny Sanguil- len's lu't. Here Murtaugh went to his bench with Vic Davillo swinging for Jackie Hernandez and lofting a fly ball to left centre. Paul Blair reached the ball, salvaged an out anyway when Sanguillen got trapped between bases. That left runners at first and third with two out and now Mur- taugh went to May to swing for Kison. May got a base hit to right that delivered the deciding run. Armed with the lead, Mur- laugh lurned the wrapup job over to Dave Giusti, whom he calls "The best reliever in base- ball." Giusli who had 30 saves ANDY CAPP BEFORE YER START, PROMISE YE The real Bucs says Murtaugh PITTSBURGH (AP) "I said all along you fellows hadn't seen the real manager Danny Murtaugh said after his Pittsburgh baseball club evened the World Series with defending champion Baltimore Orioles at two games each Wednesday night. "The real Pirates get a lot of mra the tobacco-chewing Murtaugh said. "Our plan of at- tack is to get a lot of men on and score in bunches." In another corner of the dressing room, reserve catcher Milt May stood explaining ilis game-winning hit. "I guess I was psyched May said. "But when I got in the batter's box, all I was think- ing was making contact with the ball." May's hit convinced the Pir- ates thai they now have the ad- vantage with the fifth game coming up in Three Rivers Stadium here. "rf we win tomorrow, their backs will be against the said centre-fielder AI Oliver, who drove in two rims. "But if they win tomorrow, then we'll bo up against it with two games in Baltimore. "Now we're even." Oliver said the thing that tart Baltimore starter Pal Dobson was "that he was throwing too many pitches." "He just looked worn." DANNY DISAGREES Murtaugh, however, disagreed with Oliver about the feme field advantage. "We're all professional ati- Murtaugh said. And the 54-year-old Pirate manager also denied any Pitts- burgh momentum after winning two straight gaires. "I don't believe in momen- Murtaugh said. "The players realize they have to win every game they play."
