Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, 30, 1971------------ An entire season into two frames boils down to tonight By THE ASSOCIATED PIIESS Allcr 161 giimc.s of the regular season, (he licdic N n I i o n a I Leag .e's West Division pennant race boils down to one game or possibly two. The 162-game schedule reaches its climax tonight, with San Francisco Giants holding a precarious one-game lead over Los Angeles Dodgers. A San Francisco victory over the Padres at San Diego or a Dodger loss at home against Houston Astros would make the Giants champions and send them into the NL playotfs against Pittsburgh Pirates, be- ginning Saturday on the West Coast. However, a Giant setback and a Dodger victory would leave the teams in a tie for the lead and force a one-game playoff Friday at San Francisco. The Giants, who have led since April 17, muffed an oppor- tunity to clinch the title Wednes- day night, bowing to San Diego 4-l" on Nate Colbert's three-run homer in the 10th inning.

"That" was a bases-loaded, two-run, two-out double in the Wednesday that provided the Athletics with a come-from-be- hind 8-7 victory over Kansas City Royals in their final regu- lar-season game.

Meanwhile, in the second en- counter, the Eskimos and Carrt- stoii St. Mary's Bloods stopped play after three quarters of play on account of snow. The Thompson charged NEW YORK (AP) Rocky Thompson, a rookie running back for New York Giants, was charged with harassment Wednesday by police who said he used obscene language when stopped by two patrolmen out- side Yankee Stadium. Police said the incident oc- curred vrhile the patrolmen were checking the inspection sticker on Thompson's car. The National Football League player also was charged with failing to have his automobile properly in- spected. The 24-year-old Thompson, a No. 1 dratt choice from West Texas Slate, was tried as a pass receiver in training camp, but was switched to running back. He has been used mainly on kickoff returns. The maximum penally for harassment charge is 15 days in jail or a fine. victory did got to Uie Eskimos though as they led 67-0 at the time of stoppage. In Uie Lions Stamps con- test, no points were registered after the first quarter of play, but Bruce Smith scooted acmss the goal line in Uie second quar- ter giving the Stamps a 6-0 lead .it half time. The Lions came alive in the Ihird quarter with one conVert- ed touchdown and then added two more in the final quarter. Harry Blacker, Derek Red- man and Perry Murcobick man- aged a major each for the Lions while Redman also added one convert. The Eskimos had no prob- lems whatsoever, blanking the Bloods 67-0 in three quarters of play. The Eskimos picked up quar- ter leads of 27-0 and 47-0 and 20 more points in the third quarter before the snow start- ed lo drop. Rick Collier was outstanding as usual racking up four big touchdowns and a convert while Tracy Cooler followed close behind with three. Mark Baldry chipped in with two touchdowns and Brian Quick added one. The other points came from a safety touch and a single; and one convert attempt each by Sid Collier and Randy Van Loo.

Saturdayin Oakland Manager Dick Wil- liams says he is happy lo be facing the Orioles, who won the Eastern the American League 1969 and 1970. "They're the world Williams pointed out. "They beat the best there was last year. If we beat 'em in the play- offs, we'll feel we've proven something going into the World Scries." Baltimore tuned up for the league showdown by winning its regular-season finale and llth in a the club mark set at the end of the 1970 season a 1-0 squeaker over Bos- ton Red Sox. In other AL action, Minnesota nosed out California l-o, the Chi- cago While Sox shaded Milwau- kee 2-1, Cleveland clipped De- troit 2-1 and the New York Yan- kees whipped Washington 6-3. TWO FOR OLIVEK Bob Oliver slammed two home runs and Paul Schaal belted one as the Royals rocked Chuck Dobson, slated to start Oakland's third playoff game. Williams confirmed he would still go with Dobson, but added: 'We'll watch him a lot closer than the other Vida Blue, 24-8 and Jim (Callish) Hunter, 21-11. Dobson, 15-5, who "couldn't get loose" during the six innings he worked, said it "isn't too cheery but with five days rest I'll be ready." The Orioles, resting their quartet of 20-game winners- Dave McNally, Jim Palmer, Mike Cuellar and Pat gave Grant Jackson his fourth victory, compliments of Brooks Robinson's 20th home run of the year in the second inning. They weren't too talkative alter the one of the Red Sox had a few comments about the site of the first two playoff games. WO'rlST FIELD? 'This is the worst field I've ever played on, minor leagues said Reggie Smith as he glanced at Uie Memorial Stadium turf, thoroughly chewed up by rain and profes- sional footnall games. Bert Blyleven scattered 10 hits while Rick Renick hit his first home run of the season and made a spectacular diving catch to rob Roger Repoz of an extra-base hit in the Twins' vic- tory. Repoz also committed a men- tal lapse, when he tried to score from third on Mickey Rivers' fly ball in the fourth inning. Cesar Tovar's throw home beat him but Phil Roof dropped the retrieved it and tagged Repoz, who had missed home plate. Mickey Lolich of Detroit failed to gain his 2Gth victory for the third straight time but did manage to take Uie league victory title with one more than Blue. He also struck out seven to finish with 308, tops in the majors. when Uio D o d g D r s were trounced by Houston 11-0, Montreal defeated Chicago 6-5 in the only other National Leagua gamc. -c Giants will use their ace right-hander, Juan Marichal, 17-11, against San Diego's Dave a tough left-hander with a 14-16 record, in an at- tempt to win their first title since 1962. However, Marichal has been seeing a doctor about a sore hip and the injury could curtail his effectiveness. Mari- chal is 3-0 against the Padres this season, while Roberts is 0-3 against the Giants. Los Angeles' imperturbable manager, Wall Alston, took the Dodgers1 defeat as calmly as could be expected. "They just beat the hell out of lie said. "But it's no worse than losing 1-0. It also was nice to have the Giants lose, but we're still dis- gusted with our own score.'1 Alston will send right-hander Don Sutton, 16-12, against for- mer Dodger Jack Billingham 10-15, in tonight's windup. JOHNSON VICTIMIZED Colbert, San Diego's big slug- ger, said he hit an inside, belt- high fastball ol Giants' relief ace, Jerry Johnson, 12-9, over the left field wall in the 10th in- ning for his 27th homer of the season, breaking a 1-1 dead- lock. Tommy D e an s tailed the Padres' winning rally with a leadoff single off Johnson, who had relieved starter John Cum- berland with two out in the fifth inning. Don Mason forced Dean, but John Jeter reached first and Mason was safe at second when Tito Fuentes dropped shortstop Chris Speier's throw on an at- tempted force play on Jeter's grounder. Then, Colbert ended it. Clay Kirby went the distance for San Diego and held the Giants to seven hits for his 15th victory o s t by a Padre pitcher in the club's three-year history. He struck out 11. "Normally I don't get nervous before a he said. "But walking out to the mound against the Giants, I felt the pressure. Even though it didn't mean anything to us, I felt like we were in Hie pennant race." Kirby was tough in the clutch, stranding 11 S'an Francisco nin- ners, i eluding seven in the first three innings. BON'DS INJURED The Giants scored only in the seventh on a run-producing sin- gle by Dave Kingmnn, who had replaced injured right fielder Bobby Bonds in Ihe sixth. Bonds left (he game with a painful rib injury and was a doubtful starter for tonight's game. Houston unleashed a 16-hit as- sault against Los Angeles, in- cluding a homer and two singles by Bob Watson in support o[ Ken Forsch's nine-hit shutout pitching. The Astros erupted for four runs in the first inning against 20-game winner Al Downing. Watson singled in the first run, Jesus Alou doubled in another and Larry Howard capped the outburst with a two-run single. Watson homered with one on in the fourth for a 6-0 lead and the Astros added two runs in the fifth, two in the sixth and one in the seventh. Ron Hunt, who had set a major league record when he was hit by a pitch for the 50th time tins season in the second inning by Chicago's Milt Pap- pas, delivered a run-scoring sin- gle in the ninth to lift Montreal past the.Cubs. Chicago's Billy Williams drove in four runs with a pair of two-run homers. ECONO SERVICE 1903 3rd Ave. S.
