Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, Stpttmber 23, 19.4 Cardinals get some breathing room ANDY CAPP Dodger magic number is five ASSOCIATED PRESS St Louis reliever Al Hra- aosky survived both the psy- :hological warfare and a ninth-inning brawl that .stemmed from it with two in- nings of hit-less pitching Sun- day to beat Chicago Cubs 6-5. The victory moved the Cardinals games ahead of .second-place Pittsburgh in the Vational Leagee East. The Pirates were blanked, 4-0, by New York Mets. Elsewhere, Los Angeles Dodgers increased their lead in the West Division to 4Vz games over sagging Cincin- nati with a 6-5 victory over San Diego Padres, the Reds were shut out by San Fran- cisco Giants 6-0, Houston Astros outlasted Atlanta Braves 3-2 in 14 innings and Philadelphia and Montreal split a pair, the Phils winning 3-2 and the Expos 8-5. The Cards and the Cubs v ere locked in a 5-5 tie in the top of the ninth when Chicago's Bill Madlock stalk- ed out of the batter's box in protest over Hrabosky's habit of turning his back on the batter.

Murcer would like bigger cushion in division battle with Baltimore ASSOCIATED PRESS Bobby Murcer isn't ready to trust any mystical influences as far as the American League East race is concerned. "We might be Destiny's the Yankee out- fielder said Sunday, "but I first wish that we were four or five games ahead at this point." The Yankees are in only by one game beating Cleveland Indians 2-1 Sunday on Murcer's tie-breaking homer and the four-hit pitching of Pat Dobson and a ninth-inning save by Sparky Lyle. The second-place Baltimore Orioles whipped Boston Red Sox 7-2. Boston is five games back of the Yankees. Elsewhere Sunday, Chicago White Sox beat Oakland A's 3- 1, Texas Rangers edged Kan- sas City Royals 4-3, Minnesota Twins defeated California An- gels 6-2, and Detroit Tigers nipped Milwaukee Brewers 6- 5. Minnesota defeated Califor- nia 8-1 Saturday, New York downed Cleveland 14-7, Boston edged Baltimore 6-5, Milwaukee beat Detroit 6-2, Oakland edged Chicago 3-2, and Kansas City took Texas 4- 1 and 8-5. With the score tied 1-1 and two out in the sixth, Murcer cracked his 10th homer of the season, a blast off Cleveland starter Bruce Ellingsen, 1-1. It was his second home run in two days. Boog Powell's three runs batted in, including his llth homer of the season, helped Baltimore beat Boston. Ferguson Jenkins posted his 24th victory of the season, equalling Oakland's Catfish Hunter for the top figure in the majors. The Rangers beat the Royals with three runs in the sixth inning on just one hit. Jenkins, who has lost 12, also tied his career high for victories in one season. He allowed seven hits and struck out five without walking a batter. "I don't set any numerical goals as far as how many games I wanted to said Jenkins of Chatham, Ont., ob- tained from Chicago Cubs in a major off-season trade. He had won 20 or more games for six consecutive seasons at Chicago before slipping to 14- 16 last year. "I just wanted to prove I could still he added, "whatever number of wins it took to prove it." Chicago's Jim Kaat stopped Oakland on five hits to raise his record to 19-13. The loss cut the A's lead over Texas in the AL West to 4Vz games. The White Sox went ahead 2- 1 in the sixth on singles by Bill Melton and Ken Henderson, an infield out and a sacrifice fly. Henderson tripled in the eighth and scored an in- surance run on Tony Muser's single. The A's also lost outfielder Reggie Jackson for about a week. He pulled a hamstring muscle while chasing a fly ball in the eighth. Craig Kusick's run-scoring double highlighted a three-run outburst in the sixth inning that broke a 2-2 tie for the Twins Vic Albury got the vic- tory, evening his record at 8-8. Reggie Sanders drove in four run with a single, double and home run and John Killer pitched out of a ninth-inning jam for the Tigers. Al Kaline had one single in four times at bat, leaving him one short of becoming the 12th player in major league history to reach hits for his ca- reer. Only six clubs remain unbeaten Plunkett, Patriots are for real ASSOCIATED PRESS New England Patriots and St. Louis Cardinals of the National Football League re- main unbeaten today follow- ing the second weekend of play. New England, which stunn- ed Miami Dolphins in its opener a week ago, got three touchdown passes from Jim Plunkett and a balanced offence to upend New York Giants 28-20 Sunday. And St. Louis, a narrow win- ner over Philadelphia Eagles in its first game, beat Washington Redskins 17-10. Also unbeaten are Minnesota Vikings, Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 4Sers. Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys. Philadelphia tries to knock Dallas off that elite list tonight in the nationally- televised game that com- pletes the NFL's weekend ac- tion. Sunday's other scores were San Francisco 16. Atlanta Fal- cons 10; Miami 24, Buffalo Bills 16: San Diego Chargers 20, Cincinnati Bengals 17; Minnesota 7, Detroit Lions 6; Green Bay Packers 20, Baltimore Colts 13; New York Jets 23, Chicago Bears 21, Los Angeles 24, New Orleans Saints 0; Oakland Raiders 27, Kansas City Chiefs 7; and Pittsburgh 35, Denver Bron- cos 35, in the first regular season overtime game in NFL history. Plunkett hit flanker Randy Vataha and running backs Sam Cunningham and Mack Herron for one score apiece. Herron and Cunningham contributed 150 rushing yards to beat the Giants. Herron also returned a kick- off 62 yards. St. Louis struck for two touchdowns inside of two minutes and then the defence made that margin stand up for the victory over Washington. Defensive end Ron Yankowski went 71 yards with a recovered fumble for the first Cards' touchdown, then Terry Metcalf ran 75 yards from scrimmage for another. San Diego ended Cincin- nati's 14-game home-field winning streak with quarter- back Dan Fouts climaxing a 98-yard march by plunging in for the Chargers' winning touchdown. The Bengals lost more than their pride in their game against the Chargers. Starting offensive tackle Vernon Holland suffered a broken bone in his left leg that is likely to sideline him for the rest of the season, a team spokesman said. Stalled by New England in its opener, defending world champion Miami got untrack- ed against Buffalo, converting a pair of Bills' turnovers into touchdown passes by Bob Griese for the victory. Doug Swift and Jake Scott recovered fumbles by O. J. Simpson and Jim Braxton, and Griese made the Bills pay for the mistakes with scoring passes to Jim Mandich and Marv Fleming. Skip Vanderbundt and Jimmy Johnson intercepted two Atlanta passes in the first five minutes and San Fran- cisco turned the turnovers into touchdowns that beat the Falcons. The 49ers also picked off an- other pass and recovered three fumbles against the Falcons. Chuck Foreman's 11-yard run in the second period provided the game's lone touchdown, but it was enough for Minnesota to defeat Detroit. Foreman's score finished off a Minnesota drive that had started at the Viking 42 and the defence made that TD stand up, limiting Detroit to a pair of field goals by Enroll Mann. Cleveland forced six Houston turnovers and beat the Oilers with Greg Pruitt running for 89 yards and Mike Phipps passing for 141. Bobby Howfield missed an early extra point kick but made up for that with a 39- yard field goal that gave New York its winning margin over Chicago. 58th NHL season longer than ever MONTREAL (CP) The National Hockey League will open its 58th and longest season Oct. 9 with seven games, including two involv- ing Kansas City Scouts and Washington Capitals, the league's two new expansion franchises.
