Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE U-THBRIUGE HERALD Wednesday, September 5, 1973 Dodgers fall game behind Cincinnati One ump says the other 'safe' By THE CANADIAN PRESS said Bill Virdon of Pittsburgh Pirates. "He's safe, said Red Schoendienst of St. Louis Cardinals. "He's said umpire Ed- die Vargo. "He's said umpire Bruce Froemming. Not only were the managers unable to agree but it also took two umpires to figure out what happened in a key play of the Cardinals 4-2 victory Tuesday night. Losing 2-0 going into the eighth inning, the Cardinals ANDY CAPP scored three times, and the tie- breaking run was the one that started all the confusion in the National League baseball game. Lou Brock was on third base when Pirate reliever Dave Giusti threw a wild pitch. Brock came home as catcher Manny Sanguillen recovered quickly and threw to Giusti, who was covering the piste. Home plate umpire Vargo sig- naled but the Cardinals stormed off their bench to pro- test. Schoendienst insisted that Vargo consult with second base umpire Proemiming and he eventually called the runner safe. "When Vargo asked me if the ball was loose, I said it Froemming said, explaining the decision. "Giusti had the ball but 7 I UNDERSTAND W FDR SOMEBODY TO P7XAMDYS LUNCH COME V TAL< NCU'VE f A3 ESCE Sox edge Orioles, Rangers give up 14 face All-Stars Volleyball will be the special j sport attraction of the week par none.

HELD ON RAPE CHARGE BLOOMINGTON. 111. (AP) Leo Hayden, running back for St. Louis Cardinals of the Na- tional Football League, was or- dered held to the grand jury Tuesday on a rape charge.

Hayden, a collegiate star at Ohio State, was charged in connection with an Aug. 19 incident involving a 21-year-old Bloomington woman, who charged shs was raped in her apartment. WHOOP-UP Tl7 By THE CANADIAN PRESS From the score alone, it would be difficult to tell whether Chicago White Sox and Texas Rangers were really playing baseball, or whether the football season had arrived. Playing baseball, the White Sox ran up a football-like 14-0 score Tuesday night against the Rangers in the American League. Elsewhere in the league, Bos- ton Red Sox nipped Baltimore Orioles 2-1 in a dramatic 12 in- nings, Detroit Tigers edged New York Yankees 2-1, Cleve- land Indians beat Milwaukee Braves 5-4. Minnesota shut out Kansas City Royals 6-0. and Oakland A's trimmed California Angels 4-3. Chicago picked up its sixth straight victory against the Rangers and its 10th in the last 11 games. They've been using a rookie-dotted lineup and it paid off against Texas, with fresh- man Bill Sharp leading the 13- hit attack with three hits and two runs batted in. I GET 6 RUNS IN 6TH i The White Sox jumped Jim Bibby for five runs m the first three innings and then exploded i for six runs in the sixth inning i with Carlos May's 17th homer touching off the rally. Jim Kaal, acquired from Min- i nesota last month, retired the first eight Texas batters he taced and after surrendering a paii- of third-inning singles, he set down 12 more batters in a row The victory moved Kaat's record for the season to 13-12. Two of his victories have come for the White Sox, both of them shutouts. Sharp had a single, double and triple and Tony Muser drove in three Chicago runs with a pair of hits. HOMER BEATS ORIOLES Ben Oglivie blasted a leadoff homer in the 12th inning to boost Boston to the decision over Baltimore and cut the Ori- oles' first-place lead in the East Division to five games over the Red Sox. Oglivie's shot beat Jim Palmer and made Luis Tiant a winner. Palmer had handled Oglivie easily all night but the young outfielder slugged his first pitch in the 12th for the homer. Rookie Ron Cash's first major league hit drove in Detroit's winning run as the Tigers trimmed the Yankees. Cash, purchased by the Ti- gers from their Toledo farm club Tuesday, drilled a second- inning single off Mel Stott- lemyre, 13-14, to deliver De- troit's deciding run against the Yankees. Bert Blyleven's four-hit pitch- ing moved Minnesota past Kan- sas City. It was the eighth shut- out this season, tops in the ma- jors, for the Twins' right- hander, 17-14. Frank Duffy's two-run ninth- inning home run lifted Cleve- Y.B.C. REGISTRATION FRIDAY Schools Sept. p.m. (all classes) SATURDAY Bantam Boys (10-11 yrs.) Sept. a.m. Jet Boys l8-9 yrs.)

The Brewers took a 4-2 lead into the ninth but John Low- enstein's leadoff homer put the Indians within reach and then, after Charlie Spikes drew a two-out walk, Duffy tagged Ms dramatic shot. Oakland's Ken Holtzman be- came the third 20-game winner in the majors this season while beating California. Sal Bando led the Oakland at- tack with a double and triple as the A's upped their West Divi- sion lead to games over Kansas City. Billy Martin says he lied DETROIT (API Billy Mar- tin says he lied about the in- cident that led to his dismissal as manager of Degroit Tigers of the American League. Martin says he never bold pitchers Joe Coleman and Fred Scherman to throw spitballs in a baseball game last week against Cleveland Indians. Coleman and catcher Duke ROD TAYLOR Taylor raps two more BOLOGNA (CP) Canada evened its record in the inter- national baseball tournament at 2-2 Tuesday by defeating Puerto Rico 5-3, chiefly on the fine re- lief pitching and heavy hitting of right hander Phil Lepage of Fredericton. Lepage took over from Les Orhn of Edmonton after 1 2-3 innings, with Puerto Rico lead- ing 3-0, and shut out the opposi- tion the rest of the way. He gave up only two hits, walked one batter and struck out six. He also hit two doubles and a single and drove in one run. Rod Taylor, an outfielder from Lethbridge. Alta., also had two singles for Canada. The Canadians outhit the op- position 11-6 and have collected 33 hits in their last three games. Sims, meanwhile, also say Mar- tin didn't order spitters thrown. "They had gotten together with Duke Sims in the dugout and decided to prove to the um- pires that they (umpires) didn't know what a spitter Mar- tin told one reporter. "The first I knew of it was when I saw Coleman wetting his fingers on the mound. "Once that happened I had to stand behind my he continued. "I knew they'd be fined or suspended for what they had done and I couldn't let that happen. I needed them to pitch." Martin told reporters after last Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Indians alleged spitball special- ist Gaylord Perry that he had ordered the illegal pitches to bring the controversy "to a head." ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY "I'm admitting he said then. "We threw spitters tonight. Obvious spitters. On purpose." He said it was on his orders. Friday, Martin was sus- pended by American League President Joe Cronin, who said the action was taken "for di- recting your pitchers to throw illegal pitches and publicly stat- ing that you have done so." Sunday, Martin was fired by Jim Campbell, Tiger general manager, who said the spitball incident was the final straw in a long line of incidents leading to the sacking. Asked Tuesday whether he would have fired Martin had he known Martin did not order the spitters, Campbell said: "All I know is that he told the public. He tells the truth. When I heard him tell it on his show the next morning I figured it was the truth." Although he could be subject to a fine from Cronin, Coleman now says he threw spitters on his own. "As far as everything goes, I did it on my the Tiger hurler said Tuesday. But Sims may have instigated the whole thing. "I just merely made a state- ment to Coleman that if you can threw a spitter, throw one and make it Sims said. dropped said a satisfied Schoendienst, whose Cardinals boosted their lead over Pitts- burgh Pirates to two games in the tight National League east race. In other National League games, San Francisco Giants trimmed Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1; Atlanta Braves turned back San Diego Padres 3-0; Cincin- nati Reds beat Houston Astros 12-7 in 10 innings: New York Mets defeated Philadelphia Phillies 7-1 and Montreal Expos nipped Chicago Cubs 3-2. DROVE IN 2 RUNS Rookie Dave Parker drove in two runs with a homer and triple as the Pirates took an early 2-0 lead over the Cardi- nals. Then came the argu- mentative eighth. Brcck doubled in the first run of the inning and a sacrifice fly by Ted Sizemore tied the game 2-2 before the decisive play at home. Ron Bryant allowed only one hit acH got last-cut relief help from Elias Sosa as San Fran- cisco beat Los Angeles 3-1. Bryant, the National league's top winner with 21 decisions, had a no-hitter going until Joe Ferguson singled up the middle with one out in the seventh. COMBINE FOR 8-HITTER Roric Harrison and Joe Niekrc combined on an eight- hitter and Dusty Baker blasted a two-run homer to lead Atlanta paast San Diego. Harrison beat Rich Troedson with eigth-m- ning relief help from Niekro as the Padres lost their eighth straight game. Pinch-hitter Phil Gagliano drove in the winning run with a squeeze bunt single in the 10th inning and streaking Cincinnati got five runs with two out to beat Houston. It was the sixth straight victory for the Reds, who took a one-game lead over Los Angeles In the National League West. Tom Seaver fired a four-hitter and struck out 13, pitching New York to victory over Phila- delphia. Rookie right-hander Steve Ro- gers won his third straight game, limiting Chicago to five, hits as Montreal nipped the Cubs. Arsenal, Liverpool victorious LONDON (CP) Arsenal, runners-up in last season's Eng- lish Football League champion- ship, plunged to a 5-0 defeat against Sheffield United while champions Liverpool trimmed Derby County 2-0 Tuesday. Tony Currie, the brilliant midfield player earmarked for a key role in. England's vital World Cup game against Poland next month, scored twice for Un.V.ed. Phil Thompson and Kevin Keegan on a penalty scored the goals which beat Derby who sank to their first defeat of the new season. Paul Gilchrist scored the goals which earned South- ampton a 2-2 draw with Nor- wich City and propelled them into joint leadership of the First Division along with Leeds Uited. Ipswich Town, fourth last sea- son, continued their dis- appointing start to the season when beaten 3-1 at home by Newcastle United. Ipswich has yet to win.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Batters can't hit it, umpires can't spot it, managers can't stop it. Yet somehow some baseball pitchers apparently are throw- ing the spitball pitch, with great effectiveness, regardless of its legality. Gaylord Perry of Cleveland Indians is the most frequently mentioned suspect, although Jim Merritt of Texas Rangers and Bill Lee of Boston Red Sox have admitted throwing the game's most controversial pitch. "It isn't difficult to says Al Campanis, general manager of Los Angeles Dodg- ers. "Oh, there are some who are very skilled in loading up the ball, but they are in the mi- nority." Calvin Griffith, president of Minnesota Twins says: "A pitcher throwing a spitball is taking a hitter's life into his hands. They really don't know what the ball is going lo do." New York Yankee manager Ralph Houk knows what the pitch can do, and doesn't like it. "It dances and dives worse than a knuckleball or a says Houk. "It comes up to the plate and just drops all of a sudden. It changes the nature of the game altogether." STILL ILLEGAL No matter what the pitch does, one fact remains: The spitball is illegal. Baseball's rule 802 says "the pitcher shall not apply a foreign substance of any kind to the ball____" Incidents in the current con- troversy include: tube of surgical jelly was found in the warmup jacket pocket of California Angels pitcher Bill Singer at this year's All-Star game. 10 days ago, Merritt admitted lo throwing 25 to 30 "Gaylord Perry a pseudonym for Avhat many al- lege to be the doctored pitch. The next day, Merritt was fined an undisclosed amount by American League president Joe Cronin. the fine on Merritt was announced, Lee said that he, too, had made use of foreign substances while no fine has been announced. Aug. 30, Detroit Tigers Manager Billy Martin ordered pitchers Joe Coleman and Fred Scherman to throw what he called "obvious spitters on in a game against Perry and the Indians, because "this thing's got to come to a head some time." Martin received a three-day suspension from the league of- fice for his "blatant actions and endorsement of such illegal tac- tics." "I was fed up with Perry tin-owing them the whole game and the umps not doing any- thing about, said Martin after the game. "I want everyone to know I am instructing my pitchers to throw spitballs. If the Commis- sioner is going to fine me and not fine Gaylord Perry, then there is going to be someone in a higher office than the com- missioner who will decide he said. A decision on the Martin mat- ter was handed down by Tiger general manager Jim Camp- bell. Martin was fired. "We can't endorse what Billy said Campgell. "We can't condone it. The spitter is a matter for the rules committee and for the super- vising umpires." There has been no announce- ment from commissioner Bowie Kuhn's office regarding the re- cent developments and possible action on the pitch itself.
