Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta AO - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, September 17, 1971 Giants lose but maintain slim lead Padres may be last but they're having fun By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS San Diego Padres, last in the National League West Division with the worst record in baseball, beat Los Angeles 4-1 Thursday night and halted the Dodgers' drive toward the top of the division. The loss prevented Los Angeles from moving into a tie with San Francisco after the slumping Giants lost 8-1 earlier in the day to Cincinnati Reds. In other National League games, Chicago Cubs nipped New York Mets 1-0, Montreal Expos stopped Philadelphia Phillies 6-2, Atlanta Braves trimmed Houston Astros 4-3 and Pittsburgh Pirates bombed St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in another. "The only thing we can do is knock off some of the contenders," said manager Preston Gomez, whose Padres also won the opener of the two-game set at Dodger Stadium Wednesday night. "At least we can get some people talking about the Padres." You've got to help yourself to get the breaks," said a disappointed Walt Alston, the Dodger manager. "We just haven't been helping ourselves the last two games." While the Giants maintained a one-game lead despite themselves in the West, Pittsburgh Pirates neared an easy clinch- ing in the East by stopping second-place St. Louis. The Pirates pushed their lead to 9Vi games over the Cardinals and any combination of three Pittsburgh victories or three St. Louis defeats will clinch the pennant. Fred Norman, a former Dodger who pitched a seven-hitter for San Diego, called the Kings op~n camp PART OF THURSDAY'S WORKOUT - Lethbridge Sugai Kings opened their pre-season training camp Thursday afternoon at Adams Ice Centre. Kings will once again Americans still favored take part in the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Part of Thursday's workout was spent on line rushes as the Kings have already had a two-week camp in Calgary. Brash Britishers take lead ST. LOUIS (AP) - Youth and the prospect of continued cool weather stood in Britain's immediate favor as Ryder Cup golf matches resumed with four-ball competition over Old Warson Country Club's course today. But a leader in an American try for a comeback, Jack Nick-laus, hinted strongly his team's best may be saved for the last in the international test. "I think traditionally we never seem to do as well in foursomes," Nicklaus said in reference to Thursday's tests resulting in a 4%-3% deficit the American carried into today's eight matches. "We just don't seem to play it enough," he added. "Where we should do better and where we always have in the past is with singles." At least the first part of Nicklaus' contention was borne out when Britain, paced by brilliant shots off the clubs of young Tony Jacklin, ran up a 3-1 lead in Thursday's Scotch foursomes. POUR IT ON The brash Britishers continued to pour it on with a 2-and-l victory by youngsters Harry Bannerman and Bernard Gal-lacher before a second victory by Arnold Palmer and Gardner Dickinson stemmed the assault. Nicklaus, rallying from what ^he termed an "incredibly poor" morning round, teamed with J. C. Stiead to trim Britain's lead to 4-3. America's best in the biennial tests appeared to have earned a 4-4 deadlock until the muscular Jacklin, uncanny with his wedges, chipped in from 50 feet on the 18th hole of the final match to forge a tie for himself and Brian Huggett against Lee Trevino and Mason Rudolph. Trevino and Rudolph were to take the course again this morn, ing in leading off best-ball matches, and the weather was of no small concern to the non- Big weekend for football Football will be the big sport the Medicine Hat High School in southern Alberta this week-' Mohawks. playing captain of their team. 'This certainly is the kind of weather our players favor," said Eric Brown, whose team gained the lead through opening-day matches for the first time on American soil.

'JUST LIKE HOME' "It's just like home," said a smiling Gallacher, a 22-year-old who teamed with fellow Scotsman Bannerman to upset veterans Billy Casper and Miller Barber 2 and 1. The defeat was the second of the day for Casper and Barber, who were over par also in losing by the same score to British Cup veterans Neil Coles and Christy O'Connor in the morn-ing. Casper, nursing a broken toe, and Barber were to sit out this morning's matches, which were scored on the basis of the better aE hit by each two-man team. O'Connor and Brian Barnes were fo face Trevino and Rudolph, with Frank Beard and Snead paired against Coles and John Garner in the day's second match. Palmer and the 44-yeav-old Dickinson, who twice needed um-der-par rounds to win Thursday, were to face Gallacher and 23-year-old Peter Qosterhuis in the third match, with Nicklaus paired with Gene Littler against Peter Townsend and Banner-man to complete the morning round. Dickinson, who has won all seven of his Ryder Cup tests, was at his best in helping Palmer-Dickinson's three-under 68. Nicklaus and Dave Stockton went over par on six of the first 12 holes during a morning loss of 3 and 2 to Britain's .Jacklin and Huggett. In the afternoon, Jack teamed with Snead to run up a three hole advantage at the turn and coasted past Maurice Bern-bridge and Peter Butler 5 and 3. Bembridge and Butler trimmed Americans Beard and Charles Coody 1 up in the morning. Lethbridge Sugar Kings are back home at Adams Ice Centre. For the past two weeks the Kings have shared training camp with Calgary Centennials of the Western Canada Hockey League and Kamloops Rockets of the B.C. Junior Hockey League. Kings, members of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, opened workouts at Adams. Ice Centre Thursday afternoon with some 18 players in camp. Kings won't open their home season until nearly the end of October in hopes that the new Henderson Lake Ice Centre iwill be ready for use. Only four players are back from last year's club which finished second to Red Deer Rustlers in the league championships. Rustlers went on to win the Canadian Junior tier two title. Centre Dave George is back for another stint with the locals as is left winger Ken Dodds. The lanky winger recently under went ..surgery to his feet but showed $tery little sign of it Thursday. Also back is Phil Wandler who shared netmind-ing duties with John Davidson last season and utility forward Rod Pocza. "We have a young club," said coach John Chapman yesterday. The average age of this year's edition of the Kings is 16. Signings for the coming year will get under way the first part of next week as Chapman is awaiting three players from Calgary and another from Moose Jaw. "The club is young but every kid out here is a dandy," said Chapman as he put the team through calesthentics and a brisk workout. Kings will see two new opponents in the Alberta league this year. Red Deer Rustlers are back as are Calgary Mount Royal, Edmonton Maple Leafs and Movers. The new comers are Calgary Canucks and Drumheller Miners. victory "the biggest of my career." He had lost his first four decisions to his former team-mates. Nate Colbert, Larry Stahl and John Jeter poked home runs for the winners. Cincinnati's Ross Grimsley extended San Francisco's September slide with a three-hitter as the Reds cut down the Giants. It was San Francisco's 11th loss in 12 games, a nosedive which shaved most of its 8Vfe-game lead in two weeks. George Foster, traded by San Francisco to Cincinnati earlier this year, crashed a grand slam home run as the Reds sealed the victory with a five-run eighth inning. A combined seven-hitter by Luke Walker and Ramon Hernandez led Pittsburgh over St. Louis. The Pirates scored two runs in the third and two in the fourth, all off Cardinal starter Jerry Reuss. Juan Pizarro pitched a six-hitter and drove in the game's only run with a homer as Chicago beat New York. Steve Renko stopped Philadelphia on five hits for Montreal and Sonny Jackson stroked a tie-breaking single in the eighth for Atlanta. One American League divisional race is already over and the other is all but decided. But there are still plenty of squabbles going on-fights to gain at least a small share of the post-season money and to avoid the ignominy of a last-place finish. Like Cleveland Indians, battling with Washington to stay out of the East Division cellar. A victory Thursday night would have moved the tribe within half a game of the fifth-place Senators but after taking several leads against Boston, the Indians wound up on the short end of a 10-7 final score In other American League games, Minnesota Twins beat Milwaukee Brewers 7-3, California Angels edged Kansas City Royals 2-1, Detroit Tigers defeated Washington Senators 3-1 and Baltimore Orioles belted New York Yankees 6-2.
