Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September 7, 1974 Travelling to Eastern Canada Book now on the 8 to 30 day excursion (Effective Oct. 1) and Save ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL 32M1 jft. The Herald Pat Sullivan Team Canada disappointing In this day and age you might call it a rip off. What it all down to is a waste of money and time. I took in the game between the Western Canada Hockey .eague All Stars and Team Canada '74 Thursday night in Medicine Hat and had very little enjoyment. Maybe I expected ,00 much, but it left a great deal to be desired. Besides the fact they looked as though they were doing the minute waltz at half speed, both clubs showed signs of being ,ired but then it is a little early to be in top shape. No one, I feel, got their monies worth. Tickets were a flat and if you wanted a program it was another and on top of all lat they ran out of hamburgers. To me it was an easy way to make a quick or more. The sides of the Medicine Hat Arena Convention Centre were 3ulging with When the professionals are fresher and busier than their voung opponents something is wrong. I expected to see the WCHL All Stars really flying. Such was not the case. One report said the ice was heavv and made or slow traffic. Maybe so, I didn't skate on it so I couldn't say 'or sure. I can say for sure that Brian Trottier of the Lethbridge Broncos gave a good account of himself. He was the only junior who had enough spunk to throw his weight around. I don't mean to say he took runs at guys, but at least he took out his man. And that's not a bad chore getting a piece of your 2heck on a 35-second shift. Scotty Munro looked as though he saving Trottier and his linemates for overtime. From my seat I thought Trottier, Bryan Maxwell, Pat 'rice, Larry Hendrick and Dennis Sobchuk were the picks of the 'uniors. Sobchuk. who will play in the World Hockey Association, ooked good when he wanted to. He can turn it on and off at will seems. Hendrick, despite allowing seven goals in the 7-2 loss, was arilliant at times as he made 40 saves. He watched as Hull, my aick from Team Canada, rattled two off the posts as well as lotching three markers. Hull was flying, as were linemates Johnny McKenzie and Andre Lacroix. I was disappointed, to say the least, when Gordie Howe did tot come back after the first period. It took me 32 years to see urn live and he takes two shifts, maybe three, and takes a shower. I thought his son Marty was out of place. He may have been )ff his game somewhat but he looked uncertain of himself. From what I saw Thursday Team Canada '74 is in trouble if icy hope to make a series out of the upcoming eight game with Russia. The Russian sharpshooters should have a heyday with 'oalies Don McLeod and Gerry Cheevers and the defence is also suspect. Sobchuk undressed Paul Schmyr unmercifully on two occassions that I saw. I want to see Team Canada 74 do well. If they should appen to bounce the Soviets I will be the first to cheer their ef- iorts. But from what I saw Thursday, they are in dire straights. The Russians will be in playoff condition and raring to go. Los- ing to Team Canada '72 hurt the Soviets and I'm just afraid ley.'ll take it out on Team Canada 74. Once you get past Hull and Howe, Pat Stapleton, McKenzie -nd a handful of others that's it. That is the problem. There is ittle or no depth at all to the 1974 Russian challengers. The new Team Canada meets the Russians in the first game of the series in Quebec City, Sept, 17, 10 days from now. If Thursday was any indication they won't be ready. It was the WHA group that said they had learned from earn Canada 72 mistakes. They said they would be in much letter condition. At this moment they are not any further ahead "ian the 1972 club was and they are a lot shorter on talent. Coach Billy Harris has his work cut out for him. Canadian ictories over the Russians will come only from hard work, a _ase of skate, skate, skate. If things don't improve drastically Team Canada 74 will iave all they can do to win one or two games. It's as simple as lat. Bowling scores .APR! BOWL FRIDAY Y.B.C.

There was a festival atmos- phere Friday night as a sellout throng of packed Cincinnati's Riverfront Stadium to see the surjging Reds battle Los Angeles Dodgers in the opener of a three-game series between the two contenders in Reeling Red Sox blanked, Orioles continue surge The ASSOCIATED PRESS doing their best, but lately Boston pitcher Luis Tiant says the Red Sox have been that isn't good enough. Friday night the reeling Red Philly slugger having a great year CHICAGO (AP) Mike Schmidt never dreamed he would have the year he's having. But now that he is heading for home run and RBI titles, the Philadelphia Phillies third baseman is thinking about hitting .330 or .340 some day. Those are big goals for Schmidt, who as a National League rookie last year batted .196. Although he did show power with 18 home runs, he also struck out 136 times in 367 at bats. Currently. Schmidt leads the major leagues with 34 home runs, has 104 RBI and is batting near .300. Further, he has cut down to 110 strikeouts in 474 at bats. I knew I had to cut down on my strikeouts." said Schmidt, who will be 25 on Sept. 27. "But I also learned to develop a compact swing. "I have a separation in my left shoulder and early this season it popped out on me." said Schmidt. "I went right back in but when I took a full swing it would hurt. "So I cut down on the swing and it turned out I had a great month during June. It proved to me that you don't have to overswmg to hit home runs." Schmidt doesn't think the Phillies are out of the National League East Divi- sion race "Sure, if Pittsburgh keeps winning, there's nothing we can do about it But if they should spin and Jose eight or Ifl. then we have a shot "Whether we're in the runn- ing or out of it." said Schmidt, "it won't make any difference to me. I'll play the same way. "It would be foolish for me to say 'Now that we're out of it, I'm going to go for 40 home runs or 120 runs batted in.' That would be disastrous. I just have to keep playing my game." he added. At the start of the season. Schmidt said. "I was thinking of about 80 runs batted and getting my average up." "I had no idea it would be like this. But now. if I have a hot September. I could hit .320. Next year I might even get up to .330 or .340. I know I can do it." Schmidt, who recently went O-for-23. doesn't envisage such slumps in the future. "It's just a matter of overswinging and I think I have that corrected. There's no excuse for that. The good, compact swing will do the job and keep the strikeouts down, too." If Schmidt does have the hot September he looks for. he could reach a few club records. The home run record for the Phillies is 43. set by Chuck Klein in 1929. Schmidt needs just four more runs scored to become the first Phiilie to score 100 runs and knock in 300 since Dirk Allen did it in J966. fsrhmidl also has 91 walks The wxl -walk he receives tie the rlub record ol 92 set by Wi33ie Jones in 1956.

"We're playing good baseball but we just can't get any runs, that's said Tiant, the losing pitcher, after the Red Sox had dropped IVz games off the pace of New York Yankees. The Yankees held onto first place with a 6-2 decision over Detroit Tigers in the rain- shortened, first game of a scheduled doubleheader. Baltimore Orioles blanked the Cleveland Indians twice. 2- 0 and 3-0, recording their fifth straight shutout for an Ameri- can League record. Baltimore moved into a tie with Boston for second place. The Red Sox led their divi- sion by seven games as recently as Aug. 23. "I can't get mad at any- body." Tiant noted, characteristically puffing on a cigar stub. "Everybody is try- ing to do their best and that's all you can do." In other American League games. California Angels de- feated Chicago White Sox 4-2 and Texas Rangers nipped the Oakland A's 54 in 11 innings.

Garvey put a damper on their party mood in a hurry, hitting a three-run homer in the first inning off Don Gullett, and Don Sutton and Mike Marshall made it stand up for a 3-1 Dodger victory. The win increased Los Angeles' divisional lead to 3% games over the Reds. head-to-head like this in Cincinnati has got to put our confidence at a high said Garvey. "And the effect of winning the first game of the series could be immeasureable.'' "It's a heck of a difference going against this club with a 3-0 said Sutton, 14-9. "When you get ahead early, you can challenge these guys." Elsewhere, St. Louis Cardi- nals blanked New York Mets 30. Pittsburgh Pirates trimm- ed Montreal Expos 2-1. Houston Astros edged San Diego Padres 4-3, San Fran- cisco Giants blanked Atlanta Braves 2-0. and Philadelphia Phillies defeated Chicago Cubs 4-3. The Reds left 15 men on base, scoring their only run of the game in the eighth inning on a leadoff homer by Dan Driessen. When Cesar Geronimo followed with a single. Dodger manager Walter Alston called in Mar- shall for the 91st time and the relief ace recorded his 20th save. Marshall is now just one short of his own record for appearances in one season. The Dodgers now have won 10 of 13 games against the Reds, and six of seven at Riverfront Stadium. Lou Brock stole two more bases for the Cardinals, boost- ing his season total to 101 in his pursuit of Maury Wills" major league record of 104. Brock singled to lead off Oie eighth.
