Yankee pair tosses no-hitter at Pittsburgh
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Even George Steinbrenner can’t complain about this one.
In the past, the hard-to-please owner of the New York Yankees has taken exhibition games more seriously than his managers and players, especially those that were televised back to New York.
Monday night, the Yankees were on TV for the first time this spring and Bon Guidry and Dale Murray combined to pitch a no-hitter, an 11-0 rout of a split squad of Pittsburgh Pirates.
Another group of Pirates didn’t fare much better against the New York Mets, managing only seven hits and bowing 8*1 as Hubie Brooks and Tom Veryzer doubled home two runs apiece in a five-run third inning. The Mets sent IO batters to the plate against Ross Baumgarten in the big inning with eight getting hits.
The Atlanta Braves had some good news and some bad news in the pitching department. The number of casualties among the Braves’ mound corps grew to four with the aching arms of Phil Niekro and Rick Camp, considered the team’s two top starters.
Nieki o, suffering from a sore shoulder, was taken
out after pitching (me inning on Sunday.
However, rookie right-hander Craig McMurtry extended his scoreless streak to ll innings Monday, while Claudell Washington and Glenn Hubbard drove in two runs apiece in a 5-0 victory over the Texas Rangers.
McMurtry pitched the first five innings, holding the Rangers to three hits, walking none and striking out two. Only one Texas runner advanced as far as second base and McMurtry retired IO batters in a row during (me stretch.
The 6-foot-5 McMurtry, who was 17-9 with Richmond of the Class AAA International League last year, said he is trying not to think about making the jump to Atlanta.
Elsewhere, Ken Phelps hit two home runs against his former team as the Montreal Expos blasted the Kansas City Royals 12-2. Jim Rice drilled a solo homer, his fourth in seven games, pacing the Boston Red Sox to an 8-2 pounding of the Cincinnati Reds.
Mike Ivie had three hits, including a homer and game-winning single, to lead the Detroit Tigers to a 10-9 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Gary Ward drove in three runs with a pair of singles and Gary
Gaetti’s two-run homer capped a six-run fifth inning as the Minnesota Twins defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-5.
An eighth-inning double by Jesse Barfield drove in the winning run as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 and Dane Iorg and Orlando Sanchez hit home runs to power the St. Louis Cardinals to a 12-5 victory over the Houston Astros.
Mike Davis hit a two-run homer and Bob Kearney drove home two more with a double to lead the Oakland A’s over the Chicago Cubs 9-l.Dan Gladden put San Francisco ahead with a run-scoring triple and Jeff Leonard belted a two-run homer in a fourth-inning rally that carried the Giants to an 11-7 victory over the California Angels.In a morning ‘B’ game, Max Venable had a homer and single off Angels atafter Tommy John and the Giants won 5-3.
Ruppert Jones rapped a two-run single and Erie Show pitched three scoreless innings as the San Diego Padres defeated the Cleveland Indians 5-2. Paul Molitor homered in the Milwaukee Brewers’ 4-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners.
Hall of Fanners nominate absent friends
By WILL GRIMSLEY AP Special Correspondent
Monte Irvin is a great admirer of Enos (Country) Slaughter. Stan Musial has high regard for Horace Stoneham. Walter Alston would like to put in a vote for his old shortstop. Pee Wee Reese, and a rival, Marty Marion.
Buck leonard, one of the greats of the old Negro leagues, thinks the blacks still haven’t had their just due and he puts in a plug for Willie Wills, a onetime shortstop with the Newark Eagles. George Kell also feels that shortstops, such as Phil Rizzuto, Marion and Reese, don’t get their just due.
On the theory that it takes one to know one, some of baseball’s Hall of Famers, congregating in St. Petersburg last weekend, were lured into the seething controversy over what has been called discrimination against the “good glove" man as opposed to slugging and pitching stars.
The question put to them was a simple one:
If you could pick someone not in the Hall of Fame who you think should be in but is not, whom would you pick?
“Pee Wee Reese and Phil Rizzuto,” unhesitatingly
replied Kell, the strong-hitting third baseman of the Detroit Tigers who was voted into the Hall of Fame last Thursday in his first year of eligibility for consideration by the Committee on Veterans. Reese was a Brooklyn Dodger and Rizzuto a Yankee.
“Luis Aparicio of the Chicago White Sox is another very deserving candidate as is Glenn Wright, who many thought might make it this year. The shortstop is a solidifying force on any team. Take him out of the lineup and the club is in trouble.”
“I agree,” said Alston, another member of the Hall of Fame’s 1983 induction class, who managed the Dodgers to seven pennants and four World Series crowns on a year-to-year contract for 23 years.
“Pee Wee’s value to us isn’t fully shown in the stats (statistics). He was a great competitor. He could do a lot of things on and off the field and he was a great team leader. I roomed with Marion in the minors. He proved to be a great shortstop. So did Rizzuto.”
Ralph Kiner, a 1975 inductee who hit 369 home runs, most of them for Pittsburgh, said players should be rewarded for their defensive as well as offensive talents.
Irvin, inducted in 1973, agreed that a legitimate
Hall of Fame should recognize players in all positions but had a special feeling for the tough, hard-playing Slaughter, a 19-year outfielder for the Cardinals touching three decades.
“He was in the mold of Ty Cobb, Hon us Wagner and Pete Rose,” Irvin said. “He was a good fielder and was a terror on the bases. He had no fear whatever. He wasn’t all that popular but he was a fine ballplayer.”
A mild tempest has been raised over the continual omission of Rizzuto, who played on nine Yankee World Series teams, had a lifetime batting average of .273 and was a constant bunt-and-steal threat batting just ahead of Joe DiMaggio. He hit .324 and won MVP honors in 1950.
A member of the Veterans Committee was quoted anonymously last week as saying Phil would have been an ordinary shortstop on any team but the Yankees. This raised the hackles of Yankee owner George Steinbrenner, who threatend a Hall of Fame boycott.
Word is that the Veterans Committee may name Rizzuto and Reese as a twin selection next year, when Pee Wee becomes eligible. That would be very nice.Sports shorts
