TUEJUL231968 Southern Illlnoisan SECTION TWO TUESDAY, JULY 23, 1968 SECTION TWO Pinch-hitter Brock delivers Cardinals 'pinch' Phils 5-4 in ninth By te Associated Press It's the bottom of the ninth Inning and you're two runs down. But you've got two on and nobody out and the league's MVP—your clean-up hitter—coming up. So you pinch hit for him. Right? Right, agreed struggling slu- ger Orlando Cepeda after pinch hitter Lou Brock's ground single three-run rally that keyed swept the Cardinals past aWWUL, l ' llt ' w"*v**«—- r Philadelphia 5A in a nationally televised game Monday night. "It was the right move," said Cepeda, the National League's 1967 MVP, of Manager Red Schoendienst's switch to Brock, which helped the. Cardinals open their league lead to ll'/= games. "I'm not hitting and Lou is the faster man. You put in the fast Boozed man to stay out of the'double play. "And he's the manager." While the Cardinals were scrambling to their 16th victory in 20 games, the New York Mats trimmed second place Altanta 5 - 2, running t-h e Braves' losing string to four. Houston topped Los Angeles 4-0 and the Chicago Cubs swamped San Francisco 7-2 in other NL action. ST.

But John Boozer replaced Fryman after Julian Javier's leadoff single and Curt Flood beat out a bunt against the reliever. Brock, the Cards' hottest hitter in recent weeks, had been given a rest by Schoendienst. But he got the call to bat for Cepeda, who was hitting .264 after going l-for-3 against Fryman. The slim speedster bounced a single through .the right side scoring Javier, sending Flood to third and raising his batting average to .290.

ER SB SO 3 1 4 opens with upset Haverford, Pa, (AP) Denise Carter couldn't help become a tennis player. Her mother played, her father played and her twin sister played. At the Carter home in Los Altos, Calif., they hung tenms balls on the Christ.mas tree. This family didn't play just for fun. Each member was a competitive star of sorts. Mom and dad once competed at Wimbledon, The twins ranked high in North California tennis circles before they got married. So what could be more natural than the youngest of the tennis-playing Carters coming up with the big upset on the opening day of the 69th annual Pennsylvania Lawn Tennis Bill Hayes of Du' Quoin is the air president and long associated with the harness industry. Charles Lerner, Carbondale jnvestment broker, is new to the larness racing game and quite exited about Jet Time, the two- year-old trotter he jointly owns with Hayes, "Jet Time is eligible for the 1969 Hambletonian and so far ooks like a good prospect, says the enthusiastic Lerner. "He won two races on the county fair circuit upstate and he ran (raced Lerner corrected himself) a mile in 2:12.4. That's good for a beginner." Gossip, the two-year-old trotting filly owned by another Du Quoin-Carbondale syndicate, collected a couple of seconds. Jet Time is sired by Florican, which set a world trotting mark Championships.

While Lerner is still checking himself to say a horse paces or trots'instead of runs, his-wife Jan, is having her problems with race track lingo. The Lerners visited the trophj room at the Hayes Stables a Du Quoin and were told two of the colors on display had been worn by the late Gene and Don Hayes when they wore the red white and blue silks of Hayes Fair Acres Stables. "Oh, look at the cute jockej jackets," exclaimed Jan. "There was complete silence,' laughed Charley.

There are so many professional golfers-that-they all cannot play on the top circuit week after week. There are also more people trying to promote golf tourneys than there are dates. So the P.G.A. has accommodated both its own members and the promoters by arranging two tourneys on many weekends. It was one of those secondary tourneys that Dick Heath, the Robinson tourney chairman, thought he was landing originally. More than 70 members of the Robinson Country Club donated S500 or more each to get the tournament". By postponing the son tourney two weeks from the date originally planned, Robinson will host tine only P.G.A. meet of the Sept. 26-29 weekend.. The Arnold Palmers of golf may not be attracted by a $35,00 tourney. However, since that is the only competition that weekend on the P.G.A. circuit some name players undoubtedly will be there. Something more attrac- How's that again, ump?

There was no indication how long Starr might be out.

There were a couple of other notable contract disputes, and one notable agreement. The agreement i n-y-o 1 v e d scrambling Fran Tarkenton and the New. York Giants. Quarterback Tarkenton signed a one- year . contract estimated a t about $60,000. . The disputes involved safety Jerry Richardson and .tht Atlanta Falcons, and defensive tackle Frank Parker and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Richardson quit the Falcons when his demand for a guarantee that he play at least three games was turned down by Coach Norb Hecker. Richardson, a four-year-man, needs to appear in at least three games to be eligible for the-.NFL pension plan. ' "I can't guarantee anybody anything,"' Hecker said,. "I told him he could get out there and make the club like the 73 other niys we have in .camp. We just can't cut or .make guarantees indiscriminately.-". Richardson said if he couldn t have a guarantee, he wanted a release or a trade. . ' Parker,. obtained in a trade with Cleveland, failed to report to the Steelers' camp. The club said he was holding out for more money. Safety Elbert limbrough, who sat out .the 1967 season, signed a contract with the- New Orleans Saints.
