Friday, September 28, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Cleveland sharp Ryan throws most whiffs THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Pittsburgh Pirates offered Philadelphia's Bob Boone a free pass but he refused to go along for the ride. Instead, the Phillies catcher took the Pirates for a ride, helping hand them a ning defeat Thursday night that dropped Pittsburgh a full game behind the leading New York Mets, who were idle, in the tight National League East Division. "I always look for something to hit on an inten- tional said Boone, whose single on a pitch that was supposed to be inten- tionally bad helped build the winning Philadelphia run in the 13th inning. Elsewhere in the National Bowa, Tovar upset PHILADELPHIA (AP) Shortstop Larry Bowa and utilityman Cesar Tovar have issued "trade-me" edicts as they and their Philadelphia Phillies' team-mates com- plete their third consecutive last-place finish in the National League East. Tovar, obtained last winter from Minnesota Twins, refus- ed to play when inserted in the Phils' starting lineup Wednes- day night in a 13-2 National League baseball loss to Pitts- burgh Pirates. "If he wants me to play, I no feel the 33-year-old Ve- nezuelan said of manager Danny Ozark. "If he want me to pinch hit, my back hurts. I'm not gonna break my back for that man any more." After Tovar issued his edict, Ozark met privately for almost an hour with the player. "I talked with him about his bad Ozark said after- ward. "I also talked with him about why he wanted to be traded. He said he wanted to play every day and I can't blame him for that." League, St. Louis Cardinals blanked Chicago Cubs 2-0 and the game between Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodg- ers was rained out. In the American League, Nolan Ryan broke Sandy Koufax's single season strikeout record by notching No. 383 in the llth inning of California Angels' 5-4 victory over Minnesota Twins; Detroit Tigers beat Baltimore Orioles 5-2, New York Yankees shut out Milwaukee Brewers 2-0 and Chicago White Sox nipped Kansas City- Royals 3-2 in 10 innings. With the score tied 2-2 in the 13th, Greg Luzinski stroked a lead-off single off Chris Zach- ary, the Pirates' sixth pitcher, and moved up a base on Del Unser's sacrifice. That's when Boone decided he would run before he could walk. Catcher Manny Sanguillen signaled for an intentional walk, but Zachary's pitch didn't comply. "I'd say that pitch had three inches of the Boone said. "It was high but in the strike zone." Then Zachary threw a 1-2 pitch to Larry Bowa into the ground Luzinski scampered home with the tie-breaking run. The "last batter Nolan Ryan will face in the 1973 season was also the hard-throwing right hander's 383rd strikeout victim of the season which" broke Sandy Koufax's single season strikeout record. After tying the Dodgers left- hander's eight-year-old mark by fanning Minnesota's Steve Brye on a 2-2 pitch in the eighth inning, the 26-year-old Ryan ran into some trouble. DEVELOPED A CRAMP He developed a cramp in his hamstring muscle in the ninth inning and had gone 11 batters without a strikeout. "I've got enough left to strike out one he told Bobby Winkles when the Angel manager visited the mound in the top of the llth before the California scored a run in the bottom of the llth to win 5-4.

KEN KOTKAS BOB HOBBS RICK KUCHERAN ART BOURNE Chynoweth, he's the law SASKATOON (CP) The exhibition season is in full sw- ing and Ed Chynoweth, young president of the Western Canada Hockey League, is issuing suspensions in mid- season form. Already, he has suspended 11 players and fined three the regular sea- won the race Cougars on his menu Rick Collier, a defensive end and offensive backfielder of the Lethbridge Collegiate Rams, will be out to "eat Cougar" tonight at Henderson Stadium at eight o'clock when the unbeaten Rams meet Catholic Central Cougars in Southern Alberta High School Football League action. Plans to retire after 1974 One more year for Aaron ATLANTA (CP) Henry Aaron is closing in on the last major goal of his illustrious baseball career, which he says definitely will end after the 1974 season. The 39-year-old Atlanta Braves' star remained two shy of Babe Ruth's all time record of 714 home runs going into Thursday night's National League game against Los Angeles Dodgers. After that record falls, Aaron said: "There's just nothing left to do. I can't catch Ty Cobb'in hits.'I'll let that one alone." Aaron currently ranks No. 4 on the all time hit list behind Cobb's Stan Musial's 630 and Tris Speaker's Aaron has and should pass Speaker early next season. Aaron said. "That's a lot. I look at Tolan benched by Reds CINCINNATI (AP) Cincinnati Reds said Thurs- day they have suspended out- fielder Bobby Tolan for the rest of the regular National League baseball season. Bob Howsam, president of the National West Division winners, said in a statement that Tolan "has been suspend- ed for a continued refusal to take and participate in regular batting and fielding practice and for a lack of interest. I feel his attitude has been divisive." Tolan, the 1972 comeback player of the year, defied a locker room ban last month after a shouting match with a team official. He left the team for a few days but returned in late August under an ultima- tum. Tolan, who turns 28 in No- vember, came back from a serious Achilles tendon injury in 1972 to bat .283 and steal 42 bases. He is batting .206 this year. He was put on the disabled list Aug. 25 and reinstated Aug. 28. He did not join the team until Aug. 30. The action reduces the Reds' roster to the necessary 25 players eligible for the National League playoffs. Tolan has played 10 games since being reinstated. Describing Tolan's attitude as a "divisive and distracting influence on the players and the Howsam said the result has been "unfavorable reactions from our fans and even his fellow players." The Reds did not indicate if he would be reinstated for the playoffs. my little old and see how hard that was to get." CONDITION IS KEY Aaron said he wants to report to spring training, get in good shape and "finish it out." Asked if he might play only a part of the year and then retire, Aaron said: "No. I'll finish it out. If I start a season next year, I want to finish. And, I'll definitely play next year." However, he added "I don't want to play any longer than next year. I would like to see my kids before they get out of school." The easy-going Alabama native will have enough records for one man when he surpassed the immortal Ruth. Aaron already ranks No. 1 in total bases with and in extra base hits with He's three away from grabb- ing the home run leadership, which also will push him past Ruth in a statistical category known as extra bases on long hits. Ruth leads with and Aaron has and would add nine more to that total with a trio of home runs. CAN PASS COBB It also appears that he'll pass Cobb's records of games played and at-bats next season.

NFL games sold out NEW YORK (AP) There will be eight sellouts, meaning no television blackouts, in the National Football League this weekend. An NFL spokesman said Thursday from information the league has received, the following Sunday games have been sold out: New England at Miami, New York Jets at Buffalo, Oakland at Kansas City, Chicago at Denver, Green Bay at Minnesota, Los Angeles at San Francisco and Washington at Philadelphia. In addition, he said, Atlanta at Detroit Monday night is also a sellout. Recent legislation passed by Congress states there can be no local television blackout of any game sold out 72 hours in advance. games, Aaron Cobb has 11.429 at-bats, Aaron stands at Aaron says he believes he can end up with 735 lifetime home runs, which is 23 more than he currently has. He also said he has some special ways to celebrate his 714th and 715th home runs. "I'm not saying right now what they'll be, but they'll be special, and different for each home run." No problem for Downey HALIFAX (CP) Gary Broughton of Brantford, Ont., saw his dreams of regaining the title he held briefly three years ago explode under a barrage of punches from Canadian middleweight cham- pion Dave Downey in a 12- round title match Thursday night. It was the rubber match be- tween the two veterans, both in their early 30's. says Unser INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Bobby Unser said Thursday that he, not Gordon Johncock, won last Sunday's Trenton 200- mile championship car race. "I lapped him on the last pit said Unser in a telephone interview from his home in Albuquerque, N.M. "When I came in on the next lap the pace car waved Gordy, Johnny Rutherford and Roger McCluskey by, although they told us in the driver's meeting that when the leader pitted and the pace car came out, it was supposed to freeze the field. Unser and his chief mechanic, Wayne Leary, argued with United States' Auto Club USAC officials "un- til it was pitch black" that his Eagle won the race. Unser, the older of the two racing brothers, did not file the standard protest fee. "The USAC went over the scoring papers and I showed them where it Unser said. "But I can't prove it. "They take the protest to an independent person. How are they going to know whether anyone was waved by the pace car? "When we went to the 40- gallon fuel limit I said there would be two problems the pits and scoring. The pits have worked out fine, but we just don't have that scoring. son doesn't start until Oct. 4. All are expected back for their clubs' opening games. "I'm prepared to put my job on the line to get these boys to play hockey and to keep them playing said Chynoweth, 31, who served last season as assistant ex- ecutive secretary of the league. He took over as president this year when Tom Fisher resigned to spend full time at his law practice. "I said when I took the job that I wanted to end the lack of respect for officials and the general misconduct of many of our hockey said Chynoweth. "There have been a few telephone calls from owners but nothing serious. I'm sure the owners agree with me that unnecessary and particularly stick-swing- got to end." The 11 suspensions, affect- ing four teams, have totalled 50 games. Edmonton Oil Kings and Medicine Hat Ti- gers have had four players each suspended. Fines have been imposed against coaches Ken Hodge of Edmonton, Jack Shupe of Medicine Hat and Scotty Munro of Calgary Centennials. Chynoweth said in an inter- view Thursday that all clubs were told last month to make sure their boys played hockey. "I'm prepared to carry this you can call it a the middle of the he said. "But I think the boys will realize we're trying to protect their futures." He said fines aren't effec- tive against players. "Suspen- sions are the only answer." Chynoweth never played or- ganized hockey. "I always loved the game but I just wasn't good said the six-foot- three, 190-pounder who played in four Canadian fastball championships as a member of Saskatoon College Lads.
