Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD OctoD.r 17, 1973 Losing hurts says Parker NEW YORK (AP) Jerry Grote refused to speak, the normally exuberant Tug McGraw talked in solemn tones, and losing pitcher Harry Parker spoke in a hoarse, choked voice. ''You never get used to los- said Parker, who yield- ed the two-out, llth-inning single to Bert Campaneris that gave Oakland A's a 3-2 victory over New York Mets Tuesday night The A's now lead the best-of-seven World Series two games to one hope I never get used to it."

The passed ball by Jerry Grote put Ted Kubiak in scoring position, and Campaneris knocked him home. "I'm not blaming said Parker "Passed balls are part of the game. the one who walked the guy, and I'm the one who gave up the base hit." The Mets had gone with their ace, Tom Seaver. hoping to gain the advantage in this bizarre World Series that went into extra innings for the second consecutive game. The last time the October classic had gone into extra innings two successive times was in 1933 Seaver, the fireballing righthander, went eight strong innings and struck out 12 before yielding to Ray Sadecki After the first two A's reached base in the ninth, Tug McGraw, the Mets' ace reliever who has pitched more innings than any pitcher in the Series, came in. "The bullpen said he was throwing good and he told me before the game he could said Yogi Berra, the Mets manager. "He can field bunts real good. He gets off the mound better than Ray." As it turned out, McGraw picked up Kubiak's bunt and fired on the run to get a force play, then retired the side. After the inning, McGraw could be seen jumping up and down in the dugout, a stark contrast to his solemn, soft tones in the Met., clubhouse I don't feel tired at all." said McGraw, whose phrase "You Gotta Believe." was the inspirational soundtrack that accompanied the Mets' September song into the series "I feel physically better than I thought I said( McGraw, who pitched six-plus' innings in Sunday's 10-7 Mets victory. "I can go tomorrow." After four losses there is no tomorrow, so Berra is watching McGraw's valuable left arm very carefully. "I was gonna keep him in 'til his turn at said the Mets manager Ted Kubiak of Oakland A's slides Into home on Bert Campaneris' single in the 11th inning, much to the delight of Joe Rudi. The run proved to be the Come on home winner for the A's as they edged the New York Mets 3-2 to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven World Series. A ?s battled back, take lead Met win wasn't to be INfcW YORK (AP) Neither cold, nor Tom Seaver nor Charles 0. Finley could stop Oakland A's from their appointed rounds Tuesday night And as a result, the American League champions hold a 2-1 lead over the National League's New York Mets going into tonight's fourth game of the 1973 World Series. "We proved what we can do despite the front said Oakland third baseman Sal Bando after the A's beat the Mets 3-2 in 11 innings at Shea Stadium's ice box and took the lead in the seven-game Series As if the bone-chilling weather weren't enough of a plunged to 50 degrees and stiff winds whipped the underdog A's were saddled with a two-run deficit in the first inning against Seaver, one of the best pitchers in baseball Then there was the matter about Finley and the roster Because of their eccentric owner, the A's could not use a full 25-man roster for the Series In a zany cause celebre, Finley reportedly "fired" Mike Andrews Sunday after the second baseman made two costly errors that led to Oakland's 10-7 loss His WE MAKE IT EASY AT fircstonc Corner 3rd Ave. and 8th St. S.

Many of the disenchanted A's have expressed dis- pleasure with their off-beat owner, who has pulled many stunts similar to the Andrews incident. "I guess we're that good, that we can overcome anything Finley can do to said outfield star Reggie Jackson. The morale might be low, but that didn't stop the A's from playing the kind of baseball that helped them win the AL pennant. Although manager Dick Williams didn't have a full crew, he had enough in Bert Campaneris. The speedy shortstop helped the A's tie the score 2-2 with a stolen base in the eighth inning, then delivered the winning hit in the llth inning "I felt at the moment that I was going to get a said Campaneris, whose single off New York reliever Harry Parker drove home Ted Kubiak from second base. Earlier, Campy beat a fine throw by New York catcher Jerry Grote to steal second and set up the A's second run. The play was as close as it could be. "I saw second baseman Felix Millan with the said Campaneris, "so I slid to the outside of the bag and hit it with my right foot I knew I was safe." in home service _- W1 AUTOMATIC WASHER Vnny f-MrHli'ni If n.u wviish ,ifvl spin sno si1 w.lif np.irily 1 wi GE DRYER I fi It) iirfmci mmhm ls .ind Fnrnuros include 3 (Irving cycles htMi st'lpcnons wide- load door ononing with convcnipnily IfXiiU'd lini (rap A way vi'Mimf) lyiiem '1591 SANYO STEREO CENTRE This complete stereo system includes stereo receiver, 4 speed record changer. built-in 8 track stereo tape. 2 speaker systems earphones, and stand with castors 299 PAUL HENDERSON SAYS: ll the fucitemeni of ;
