Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24-THE LETHBniDGE HERALD October 17, 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.

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 Metb clubhouse. I don't feel tired at all, said McGraw, whose phrase "You Gotta 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 9s battled back, take lead Met win wasn't to be NEW 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.

Even the fact that Andrews reportedly was on his way back to the A's camp today apparently didn't soothe the club's general morale. 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.

Phone 327-IIM From second base, it was easy for Campaneris to race home on Joe Rudi's single to right. That tied the score 2-2 and spoiled a wonderful pitch- ing performance by Seaver who. until that point, was in command of the situation with a crackling fastball. "The way he was starting said rival pitcher Jim "Catfish" Hunter, "I thought, 'Here he goes again "But Seaver wasn't throw- ing as hard in the later in- nings. He had to rely on his control instead of his fastball later in the game." As it was, Seaver struck out 12 batters before leaving after eight sparkling innings. Many of those strikeouts came in the early going, when the Mets had taken a 2-0 lead built on that first-inning out- burst. Wayne Garrett hit Hunter's second pitch of the game into the right-field seats for his second home run of the series and the Mets scored their second run on a wild pitch by the Oakland ace later in the inning. Seaver, meanwhile, dazzled the A's with a performance that included five straight strikeouts at one point. In the sixth inning, the A's scored their first run on doubles by Sal Bando and Gene Tenace. Then after the eighth and llth-inning rallies, the A's used their powerhouse bullpen to nail it down. So he's not all that big THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Dean Meminger, the New York Knicks' smallest player at six feet, one inch, doesn't often get a chance to go against a man his own size. But when he does, he delights in it. The relatively diminutive Meminger, facing Buffalo's touted rookie, 6-0 Ernie DiGr- egorip Tuesday night, enjoyed the highest scoring game of his National Basketball Association career, collecting 27 points, as the Knicks routed the Braves 117-91 in New York. In the only other NBA game Tuesday night, visiting Phila- delphia 76ers defeated the Houston Rockets 106-101. At San Antonio, the Spurs scored their first victory, beating the winless Virginia Squires 116-106 "When you play a man like Ernie explained Meminger, "you have to make him pay the price (play defence) or he'll kill you on offence." DiGregorio scored only 12 points. Meminger, whose previous pro high was 25 points, slithered through the Buffalo and past the un- suspecting most of his points on easy layups. Detroit club drops fourth By RON SUDLOW Canadian Preu Staff Writer St. Louis Blues, Detroit Red Wings, New York Islanders and Los Angeles Kings were looking for their first win of the young National Hockey League season Tuesday night. The Kings and the Islanders scrambled to a 44 tie while only a deflected slapshot that trickled over the goal line gave the Blues a 3-2 decision over the Red Wings at Detroit. Lou Angotti managed to get his stick on team-mate Bob Plager's blueline blast with remaining and the deflec- tion appeared to catch Wing netminder Roy Edwards by surprise. The result was Detroit's fourth straight loss, matching the club's worst-ever start. The rest of the scoring came in the second period as the only club in the league without a a 2-0 lead on goals 33 seconds apart by Alex Delvecchio and Henry Boucha. But the Blues, who peppered Edwards with 40 shots, also got two goals in 33 seconds near the end of the period. Ab DeMarco and Steve Durbano were the triggermen. In New York, Lome Hen- ning, who scored only seven times in 63 games last season, tallied his second of the season mid-way through the third period to give the Islanders their second tie in four same record as the Kings. Brian Spencer and Germain Gagnon gave the Islanders a 2- 1 lead in the first period while Ralph Stewart was the other New York scorer. Vic Venasky, Bob Berry, Jimmy Peters and Bob Nevin scored for the Kings. Berry also picked up an assist to boost his season's points total to good enough for a share of fourth place in the scoring race Al Arbour, in his first year as the Islanders' coach, criticized his team's defence for being too slow. "We're not passing or skating he added. "And the times when we do check, it's not hard enough." Kings coach Bob Pulford was mostly concerned about goalie Rogatien Vachon who struck his head on the goalpost while trying to stop Gagnon's first-period score. Vachon was replaced by Marv Edwards but watched the rest of the game from rinkside. Vachon was taken to hospital after the game for i- rays for a possible eye Injury. "1 don't think it's said Pulford. "I think he should be ready for our next game but we didn't want to take any chances." Action resumes on six fronts tonight as Vancouver Canucks continue their eastern swing against the Black Hawks at Chicago, Toronto Maple Leafs meet the Canadiens at Montreal.
