Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta G THE inHBRIDCE HERAID Monday, October 18, 1971 Blass and Clemente spark thrill-filled clincliei Pirates reign as world's baseball champions BALTIMORE (API In the end it was a maligned pitching .staff working without its top winner that turned the tables for Pi 11 s b u r g h Pirates and made them baseball's world champions for Steve Blass, his hair soaked with champagne, stood on top of a table in the bedlam of the Pirrte dressing room Sunday and shouted: ''We've got a no- muno pitching staff hut we're the champions." Blass had just pitched the Pir- ates to the title beating Balti- more Orioles 2-1 on a tension- packed four-hitter. President Nixon called the Pirate dressing room alter the game to congratulate, manager Danny Mttrtangh and his team on their first title in 11 years. "He complimented me on looking so calm on the said Murtaugh, "and he said that although the day belonged to Blass and Hobcrto Clemente, it took a real team effort to win the Scries." Nixon also phoned the Oriole dressing room lo talk to Balti- more manager Earl Weaver, who often had lamented over not hearing from the president despite the past successes of hL> team. It was Murtaugh who manipu lalcd the seemingly-thin Pirate pitching staff to the title. De- prived of his biggest winner Dock Ellis, who worked only 2 HAPPY MANAGER Pittsburgh Pirate manager Danny Murtaugh doesn't mind a bit as he is doused with champagne in the locker room after his bounce-back Bucs top- pled Baltimore to win the World Series. Redskins click again to remain undefeated By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "The old geezers did it coach George Allen grinned after his undefeated Washington Redskins won their fifth in a row Sunday, a con- vincing 20-0 whipping of St. ouis Cardinals. And quarterback Archie Man- ning, New Orlean's No. 1 draft choice, took advantage of six Dallas turnovers to run for two touchdowns and pass for a tliird as the Saints upset the Cowboys 24-14. In Sunday's other National Football League games, Balti- more Colts walloped New York Giants 31-7, New York Jets top- pled Buffalo Bills 28-17, Cleve- land Browns nosed out Cincin- nati Bengals 27-14, Miami Dol- phins crushed New England Pa- triots 41-3. San Francisco '49ers beat Chicago Bears 13-0, Detroit Lions dumped Houston Oilers 31-7, Los Angeles Rams de- feated Atlanta Falcons 24-16, Minnesota Vikings turned back Green Bay Packers 24-13. Oak- land Raiders ripped Philadel- phia Eagles 34-10 and Denver Broncos edged San Diego Chargers 20-16. Kilmer and Charle Harraway each ran for a touchdown and Curt Knight booted two field goals for the Redskins, but the star of the day was linebacker Jack Pardce, who intercepted three passes to thwart the Car- dinals. The victory boosted Washing- ton's lead in the NFC East to two games over the Cowboys, whose coach, Tom Landry, mut- tered: "When you give them away, you can't win them. What went wrong? Our kicking, pass- ing, was play- ing." Dallas fumbled the ball away three times and had three passes intercepted. "For the first time, this Saints coach J. D. Roberts said, "our special teams started forc- ing the errors and started mak- ing the big plays for us." Manning passed 29 yards to Tony Baker for New Orleans' first touchdown, then scam- pered 13 and two yards for two Bowling o CAPRI BOWL DOUG'S LADIES Maggie Oliver 336, Mickey Fildes 536 Chris Guenther 293, Pal Norlin 243, Gladys Going 296 Dorothy Anderson Bunny Ander- son 263, Vera Nicholls 2-17, Judy Har- nack 246, Irene Lynde 235, Grace Hill 233, Audrey OueUette 300 YBC FRIDAY SCHOOLS JUNIORS Rick Barvo 734, Robert Henderson 263, Rick MacLean 199, Gary Lohuis 195, Mtchde MacLean 1B6, Bev Pas- sey 151, Kalle Pedrinl 206.

Norm Bulaich rumbled for 108 yards, including 34 lor a touch- down, and caught a 27-yard pass for another score in the Coils' romp. Quarterback Earl M o r r a 11 also fired two scoring strikes to Ray Perkins as Baltimore broke open the game against the Giants with 21 points in the sec- ond quarter. PASSES FOR PAIR Bog Davis, the Jets' third- string quarterback making his first start since 1969, passed for a pair of touchdowns against the winless Bills and Emerson Boozer added a two-yard touch- down. "I couldn't hoar the count so T went with the snap of the said Bo Scott of the Browns, who went four yards with it into the end zone for his third touch- clown of the game with 39 sec- onds remaining to stun the Ben- gals. They beat the living hell out of us." was all shell-shocked Patriots Coach John Mazur could say after Bob Griese fired four touchdown passes, two apiece to Paul Warficlrl and Howard Twillcy, while the Dol- phins held New England to 117 yards. Tlie '49ers scored their first shutout in 10 years. John Bro- die's 12-yard pass to Gene Washington provided the game's lone touchdown. I-n innings in the Series, Mur- taugh won it anyway with two sensational jobs by Blass, a .shutout by journeyman Nellie Briles and a brilliant relief jol) by 21-year-old rookie Bruce Kison. j "Anytime you go into a Scries like this, the emphasis has to be j on the said taugh- "They had four 20-gamej winners, but we had enough pitching to win our division and the pennant, so I thought we'd have enough now." And while the Pirate pitchers, shelled for 16 runs and 24 hits in the first two games of the Ser- ies, suddenly shut off the Oriole offence, Clemente stepped into the hitting spotlight. A veteran of 17 major league seasons, the slugging right fielder lore the Orioles apart, collecting 12 hits, one short of the Series record. He was the obvious choice as the Series' most valuable player. Still the best spouts Weaver BALTIMORE (AP) Balti- more Orioles were upset in the World Series for the sec- ond time in three years, but it didn't hurt as much as in 1969. Exhibition victory for Elks Don McLean's Lethbri( _ Midget Elks got away on the right foot Saturday night as they downed Calgary Lions 6-5 in an exhibition game before 200 fans. The locals, who'll play this season in the Southern Alberta Juvenile Hockey League, led all the way. They were ahead 1-0 at the end of the first pe- riod and held a 4-2 edge after two periods of play. Rod Poza was the big gun [or the Glks as he rifled home 'our goals with singletons go- ng to Brian Maxwell and Pie Lavarotto. Lome Hunter paced Calgary with two goals while singletons went to Ric Henning, Sheldon Smithens and Doug Finney. Joe Petroiie Bear hero By THE CANADIAN PRESS The big teams fell down in :he Western Intercollegiate League Saturday, but University of Alberta Golden Bears managed to get up again and beat University of Saskat- chewan Huskies 18-17 University of Manitoba Bis- ons, the defending Canadian champions, stayed down and were upset 8-5 by University of British Columbia Thunderbirds. Joe Petrone's 30-yard field goal on the last play of the ;ame gave Alberta its come- 'rom-behind victory and kept :he Golden Bears in first place, four points ahead of the Bisons. "This isn't as tough to take as losing to the New York manager Earl Weaver said. "Pittsburgh didn't beat us four straight and this one went seven games instead of five." The Orioles took the World Series last year and have won 318 games in the last three seasons, but much of that glory may have evaporated when the Pirates won the de- ciding seventh game 2-1 Sun- day. "After 162 Weaver said, "it's four out of seven, and then I've got to hear all winter long: 'I lost my bank roll on you guys'." "We're still the best damn team in baseball, and we'll prove it by winning 100 games again next year to become Ihc only learn ever to do that four seasons in a Weaver added. CALLS BLASS THE KEY Weaver had high praise for Pittsburgh right fielder Rob- erto Clemente, who won a new car as the outstanding player, but did not think he was as big a factor as Steve Blass. Blass beat the Orioles twice, hurling a 5-1 three-hitter in game No. 3 after Baltimore won the first two, and then permitted four hits in the 2-1 clincher- After pounding out 24 hits in the first two games, the Ori- oles collected only 20 while losing four of the last Jive contests. "I don't know what we could have done to Weaver said, "except to get more nils." Weaver declined to pay a visit to the Pirates' dressing room immediately after the game. "They're having their own he said. "Why go over and make them feel bad by seeing me sad. Any- way, Danny (Pittsburgh man- ager Danny Murtaugh) knows I send him my best." Rustlers in first tied Pi ace The Red Deer Rustlers moved into a first place tie with the idle Calgary Canucks trouncing the Drumheller Fal- cons 12-0 in Alberta Junior Hockey League play over the weekend. Bill Haynes and Rob Joel paced the Rustlers with three goals apiece while Greg Scott added a pair. Other goals came off the sticks of Dale Lewis, Terry Wittchcn and Bob Cluny. Falcons' goalie Ross Steven- son bore the brunt of Rustlers 57 shots on goal while Drum- heller managed only 20 shots on Gord Kitsul. Meanwhile, the Calgary Mount Royal Cougars slipped into sole possession of second place with two victories over the Edmonton Movers. Saturday night, the Cougars scored five unanswered goals in the third period to drop the Movers 8-5. "This means so much to said Clomente. 'i'm 37. I migh never get lo play in anothci World Scries." Clcmente's flawless fieldinj and a rifle arm kept the Balti more base runners war; throughout And his big ba marked the eventual downfall ol the defending champions. It was Clcmente's booming fourth-inning home run that pn Pittsburgh in front Sunday. The shot was the first hit off loser Mike Cuellar, who had retiree the first 31 Pirates in order. "Now people in the whole world know how I said Clemente. "I wanted to show people that the Roberto Clemente who swings bad in the playoffs against Cincinnati last year, is not the real Roberto Clemente. I was hurt and I couldn't swing the bat. I wanted to finish whai we started last year." Clemente's homer woke the Pirates up. "It was like an explosion in the laughed Murtaugh who also managed F'ltsburgh'i last champions in I960. "I was rushing myself early in the Blass said. "Bui around the fifth inning, I fel into the same rhythm I had in the first game-" BLASS STARTED IT That was bad news for the Orioles, whose spin-out in this Series started when Blass beai them in game No. 3 on a three- hitter. "I had two great said Blass, "and they happened to be in the World Series. Blass rolled through the Ori- oles' array of hitters with ease. Finally, in the eighth, the Pir- ales got Blass another run when Willie Slargell singled and cir- cled the bases on Jose Pagan's double. The Orioles got the run right back from Blass in the bottom of the eighth on hits by Ellie Hendricks and Mark Belanger, a sacrifice and an infield out. BACK IN THE COOKER That put Blass back in a one- run pressure cooker in the ninth with the heart of the Orioles' batting Powell, Frank Robinson and Merv Ret- tenmund coming up. "I thought about a homer on each of said Blass, "but I knew that would only tie it. Nobody said anything to me be- fore the inning. If they had, I would have shattered." Powell rolled out, Robinson popped up and then Rettenmund hit a bouncer up the middle. But shortstop Jackie Hernandez dashed to his left, grabbed the ball and gunned it to first for the final out. Blass leaped into his team- mates arms in joy. "It was the pitcher said. "There's no wav to ton that." The last out sent the Pirates into bedlam that carried from their dugout into the dressing room. On the other side of Memorial Stadium, the Orioles sat quietly as Weaver tried to analyse the Pirates' victory. "Without the Oriole manager said, "we might be popping the corks."

Pat Graham, Ron Logan, Bob Murray, Tom Ball, Cliff Hen- drickson, Joe McCauley and Mike Dcdenhardt tallied for the j nia Golden Seals in exchange Cougars, for goalie Gylles Melloche and Jim Millar, Terry Ewasiuk dcfcnceman Paul Shmyr. Hawks prevent legal action CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Black Hawks cut loose from possible legal entanglements Sunday by reacquiring goalie and Peter Skrabyk scored for Edmonton who also received four of 10 penalties called Barry House stopped 24 shots on the Calgary nets while Jim Bowman blocked 37 for the Movers. The Black Hawks had traded Desjardins and Gerry Finder to California last season in ex- change for Gary Smith, but Desjardins fractured his arm in an accident putting the deal in question. Blass finds it hard lo believe Loneliest guy in the world BALTIMORE (AP) "I was probably the loneliest guy in the said Steve Blnss. "Nobody said a word to me before the game and less dur- ing it." But the Pittsburgh Piralc right-hander, who won the seventh World Scries game with a brilliant four-hitter, can't be lonely now. "God, we won the World he tried to calmly as reporters clamored for his comments after tiic Pirates' 2-1 victory Sunday over Baltimore Orioles. "I was carried away with the atmosphere of the play- said Blass. "After the Series, I gave some (Nought to the bad playoffs I had and decided I had to stay within myself emotionally. "In the playolfs, I threw a lot of fast balls and struck out a lot of batters and that's not my Blass said. "And only for that reason did I have a talk with myself. I wanted to day within myself and not embarrass myself or my team-males." When the Pirates were two games down in the Series, Blass picked them up with a three-hitter, the last of tliree straight victories in Three Rivers Stadium. As the champagne flowed and corks popped in Ihe mobbed Pirate dressing room, it was obvious that Bill Ma- zcroski's mind was flickering back and forth between ma and 1971. In loco, Mazeroski was the hero after hitting the winning home run against New York Yankees in the seventh game- In 1971, at the age of 3G and now a ulUity infielder, Mazer- oski batted only once in the World a pinch-hit- ter. As he clutched a bottle of r h. a m n a j n c in the Pirate training room, he looked up and laughed: "1 was Ihc inspirational leader."
