Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LEIHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, September 29, 1970------------------------------ The Battle For Second Place Goes On, Games Left liy TIIU ASSOCIATED PRESS W a y n o GmTCtt's dramatic home run came too late to help York Jlels after their lost weekend in Pittsburgh but it did got the defending world champi- ons even with Chicago Cubs. The Mets. who dropped three straight lo the Pirates, includ- ing Sunday's 2-1 loss which ena- bled the Pirates lo clinch the National League East Division title, were on their way to drop- ping (mother Monday night when first Donn Clcndcnon and then Garrett exploded. The Mets pulled it out in the 10th inning, winning 6-3 on Gar- rett's tali homer of the season placing the Mets and Cubs in j flat-footed lie for second place with three games remaining against ouch, oilier.. In the only other National League game. Houston Astros blanked San Francisco Giants 3.0. MURTAUGH DRENCHED Danny Murtaugh of the Pittsburgh Pirates gets a cham- paign shower Sunday after his Club clinched the east division title by edging the New York Mets 2-1. Coaches, Fans Ejected Kings Satisfy Fans By LLOYD YAJIAGISIII 'Herald Sports Writer After 60 minutes of play some Lethbrklge support- ers went home satisfied as the Sugar Kings fought to a 3-3 exhibition hockey stalemate with the visiting Calgary Cen- tennials Monday evening. In the exhibition encounter both coaches and two fans were ejected in the action packed affair. No goals were scored during the first period as both clubs more or less felt each other out and exchanged end rushes quite frequently. The second period was a dif- ferent story with both clubs loosening up quickly in the opening minutes. George McCrea picked up a perfect pace from Fraser Rob- inson just 46 seconds into the second period and blasted one past goalie Ed Dyck to put the Sugar Kings ahead 1-0. Seven minutes later Ron Homenuke dug the puck out from the Kings' corner and watched Jim McMaster tie up the contest with a quick shot into the bottom left hand cor- ner of the net. The Centennials came right back and potted in another four minutes later when Don Oulton received a perfect pace from Murray McNeil from the Kings corner and flipped it behind King's netminder John David- son. With, the aid of Homenuke's five minute major for buttend- ing the Kings tied the score when Gary Paskuski rapped in a goal mouth pace from Lannie McDonald. The second period ended 2-2 and this set the stage for the third period which was strictly a fan pleaser. With the third period only six minutes old, Len Frig a Leth- bridge product now playing for the Centennials was high stick- ed by Sugar King's Don South- ern. Frig retaliated with a high stick and some attempted punches. Both Frig and Southern re- ceived high sticking and rough- ing minors which led to the dis- turbance of two Lethbridge fans. Frig, while in the penalty box, was harassed by the local men and could only take so much, jumping at the fans with his stick. The fans were at fault and they were quickly es- corted out of the Arena. A few minutes later Jolin Chapman, the coach of the Sug- ar Kings, let loose his emotions by throwing a stick onto the ice when disputing an off-side call made during a two-on-one weak. Referce-in-chief Joe Cassidy from Calgary ejected Chapman when lie wouldn't settle down. When the game finally con- tinued both clubs played a fine brand of hockey and it was tint until the of the final stanza set the stage for I he Kings tying marker. Both Calgary goalie Dyck and (lefenseman Frig received penalties when Lloyd Pawluk was attempting to get away from the Calgary zone. Dyck was called for slashing while Frig was nailed for an inter- ference call. This left the Cen- tennials with two mon short and the Kings utilized llic op- portunity, On the power play Gary Pas- kuski failed on a close in shot, but the Calgary goalie could not cover up the loose puck fast enough and Alex Kogler scoop- ed it into the net for the tying goal. Also during the penalty call coach Scotty Munro of the Cen- tennials followed Chapman's steps as he flung a stick on the ice after he heard the infrac- tions called on' his players. Referee Cassidy then booted him out of the Arena. With only two minutes to go after the Kings tied t h e contest acting coach Sid Hall just decided to settle with the tie playing the final minutes safely. The Kings showed the Leth- bridge fans what they can ex- pect this season with their fine performance. In other exhibition action Red Deer Rustlers and Estevan Bruins fought to a 3-3 draw in Red Deer. The Hus- tlers, like the Sugar Kings, play in the Alberta Junior Hockey League while Estevan is a member of the Western Canada Hockey League as is Calgary. In Edmonton the Oil Kings dropped a narrow 2-1 verdict to the Flin Flon Bombers. The Bombers continued their dom- inance over the Oil Kings. It was the Oil Kings that Flin Flon defeated to win the WCHL championship last year. WAIVED THROUGH HAMILTON (CP) Veteran fullback Willie Bethea has been waived out of the Canadian Football League, Hamilton Ti- ger-Cat coach Joe Restic said Monday. In the American League, Min- nesota Twins edged Kansas City Royals 1-0 and California Angels nipped Cliirago White Sox 4-3. Clcndcnon gave the Mets a life Monday night when hi slammed his 22nd the ninth inning '.iff Ken lloltzman, giving New Looking nn np-j lo 1 lie lound PITTSBURGH (AP) Cin- cinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates are both known for their offensive weapons. But when National League playoff opens tliis weekend, at Three Rivers Stadium, pitching should be the key. Pittsburgh's pitching has sud- denly blossomed after mid-sea- son injuries hit the staff. During the last 17 games, Pir- ate pitchers have allowed only 40 e a r n e d o r an earned-run average of 2.30. The opposition has been held to one or fewer runs in six games and tas scored more than three runs in just three of them. The Reds, on the other hand, have won eight of their last 10 ;ames, but have not had one complete game. Gary Nolan, 13-7, recently the steadiest pitcher for the Reds, will start against the Pirates' Dock Ellis, 13-10, who won Sun- day's game against New York Mets that clinched the title for 'ittsburgh. Jim Merritt of the Reds, who was lit on the elbow three weeks ago and had been side- lined, pitched three innings last reek. If he is healthy he is ex- pected to start the second game against Luke Walker. 'IRST SINCE 1925 Merritt, with a 20-12 record, is he first 20-game winner Cincin- nati has had since 1025. The Reds are a better slug- ;ing club than the Pirates but he two teams are nearly even n batting percentage. The Pir- ates are hitting .269, the Reds 271. Red catcher Johnny Bench is 'atting .294, has a league-lead- ng 45 home runs and 147 runs >atted in, also tops in the eague. Pete Rose leads the Reds in ratting with a .318 average and Tony Perez is hitting .316 with 10 home runs and 129 HBIs. Roberto Clemente, who will niss the St. Louis series this week to undergo more back reatment in Pittsburgh, should )e ready for the playoffs. He's not eligible for the baiting title his year because he has too ew times at his aver- age is .350. Manny Sanguillen, the Pirate catcher, is batting .326, third in the league. Willie Stargell, Al Oliver and'Bob Robertson are he RBI leaders on the Pirates. Itargell has 85, Oliver 82 and Robertson 81. Brimdage Gives View VIENNA, Austria (Reuters) Brundage, American president of the International Dlympic Committee who is vis- iting Hungary, Monday reiter- ated his view that the Olympic movement would be destroyed if professionals were allowed to compete. Brundage, who celebrated lu's 83rd birthday Monday, repeated bis ideas on professionalism in sport in an interview which ap- peared in the Budapest sports wper Nepsport and reported icrc by the Hungarian news agency MTI. He agreed that the advance of professionalism means that competitors in several Olympic sports, particularly soccer, bas- ketball and fencing, are no longer the best in the world. "Despite this, my opinion is bat professionals must not be allowed to compete in the pic Games for that would be the death of the Olympics." York a 3-3 tic. The pair of runs batted in gave Clendcnon 93 foi the season, a club record. Hollzman had been breezing on a -tour-hitler until Cleon Jones slammed a two-out single before Clendenon's shot. The left-hander was given a 3-1 edge in the sixth when Tommy Davis connected for a three-rim olast. Then in the 10th, Jerry Grotc doubled off Hoyt Wilhelm and after two outs, Dave Marshall walked. Garrett then followed with his game-winner. Starter Gary Gentry issued only three hits in six innings and Met relievers Tug McGraw and Danny Frisella stopped the Cubs the rest of the way without a hit. Jack Billingham tossed a six- liitter for his 13th victory and struck out 12 Giants. San Fran- cisco holds a slim one-half game margin over Los Angeles for second place in the National League West behind runaway winner Cincinati. SCOIiE OFF BRYANT The Astros scored all three runs in the second inning off Ron Bryant, 5-8, on a run-scor. ing single by Larry Howard, nn RBI groundout and Cesar Ced- cno's perfect bunt single for the third tally. Minnesota, the American League's West champion, got a squeeze bunt in the fifth inning from rookie Danny Thompson for its victory over the Royals. Tom Hall, 11-6, expected to start the second playoff game against East winner Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, went eight innings and scattered five hits while striking out seven. The Angels' Tom Murphy held Chicago hitless for six innings was reached for three hits in the seventh inning, including a three-run homer by the White Sox' Bill Mellon. Ed Fisher came on to halt the Sox and ireserve Murphy's 16th victory. The Angels scored a pair of runs in the first on run-scoring singles by Tony Gonzalez and Jim Spencer and added a pair n the sixth on RBI singles by Mickey Rivers and Murphy. Badly Beaten BALTIMORE (AP) Balti- more Colts had suffered worse defeats, but none seemed quite so humiliating. Even the rabid Baltimore fans were streaming out of Memorial "tadium long before the world champion Kansas City Chiefs idministered a 44-24 pasting Monday night. The first half of the National Football League game ended vith the Chiefs on top 31-7 and hey increased the bulge to 41-10 jefore Baltimore added two meaningless fourth quarter ouchdowns. The Colts were stomped 70-27 rack in 1S50, but that was their naugural season in the National nootball League. Even a 57-0 >ss to Chicago Bears in 1962 didnt' seem to carry the same sting as the walloping by the Chiefs. TIME WAS RIPE The time was ripe for a good showing by Baltimore. After wsting the best record in the during the last 12 years, 12-48-4, the Colts were one of ,hree old-guard teams shifted to he American Conference under .he realignment. In their first home game against a team from the old American Football League, the Colls were taking on the Super Bowl champs. The Chiefs had lost their 1970 opener to Minne- sota Vikings the week before, and Baltimore had beaten them n an exhibition 17-3. The Chiefs exploded. They vere tricky, elusive and explo- sive on offence and running lack kicks; They were devastal- ng on defence. "We're champions and we re- acted lo last week's said Cansas City Coach Hank Slram, rying to take everything in stride. JUST COULDN'T STAY ON-Butch Littl e Mustache didn't have much luck on mount during a summer rodeo but he is hoping his luck will change this week- end during the All-Indian indoor rodeo set for the exhibition pavilion. Competilors from various parts of Alberta, B.C. and Montana are expected to take part in the three-day affair.
