to THI TRiaUNf, TIRRt HAUTB, IND TUESDAY, MARCH ». 1971 Division-Winning Pirates Battering Foes Pittsburgh Rolls To Fourth Victory By TOM SALADINO Associated Press Sports Writer The 1-2 punch of Dave Cash and Richie Hebner battered the Detroit Tigers as the Pittsburgh Pirates continue to flatten all comers after four days of spring training exhibition games. Hebner slammed a pair of home runs, each after Cash had singled, opening up a 4-0 Pittsburgh lead after four innings and the Pirates coasted to their fourth straight win of the spring yesterday, 9-3, over the Tigers. Hebner, the young hard-hitting third baseman, batted .290, in his sophomore season last year while Cash, expected to share the second base spot with veteran Bill Mazeroski this year, belted at a .316 clip last year with Pittsburgh. The pair of homers by Hebner, who also added a single, gave Pittsburgh nine in its last three games. Starter Jim Nelson, who held the Tigers hitless over the first three innings, was the winner. In other games, Washington edged Baltimore 4-3, the New York Mets topped Philadelphia 3-1, the Chicago White Sox belted Minnesota 6-2, Houston nipped Montreal 2-1. St. Louis blasted Kansas City 11-7, the Aquatics Club Set For State AAU The Indiana State Aquatics Club will open its competitive season later this month, when the team competes in the state Amateur Athletic Union age- group meet in South Bend. Approximately 12 members of the team will participate in age group events ranging from 9 and under to 15 and over. The 'swimmers will then travel to Bloomington March 15 for the qualifying meet for the Region Six AAU championships. Those qualifying for the region meet will be in Cincinnati the latter part of March. One hopeful for the Region Six meet is Ann Martin, 16, who is one second from the needed time to qualify for the 100 meter freestyle and three seconds from the cutoff for the 200 meter freestyle. She has been training with the Indiana State University women's varsity swim team and is working on the 500 meter freestyle to improve her endurance. New York Yankees held off At lanta 2-1, Boston squeezed past Cincinnati 3-2, the Chicago Cubs rapped Cleveland 6-3, Milwaukee nudgel California 4-3, San Diego whipped Oakland 8-6, and San Francisco tripped the Tokyo Orions 7-5. Washington third baseman Jim Mason committed four errors, letting in two Baltimore runs in the fifth inning, but came back with a 13th Inning homer that enabled the Senators to edge the world champions. Art Shamsky's two-run homer provided the edge in the New York Mets' triumph while Carlos May socked a three-run blast in the White Sox' triumph. Homers were also decisive in Houston's triumph when John Mayberry snapped a 1-1 tie with a solo shot for the Astros and St. Louis got a three-run homer off the bat of Joe Hague. Lou Brock added a two-run triple in the Cards' winning effort. The Yankees got an RBI single from Bobby Murcer and a run-scoring single by Danny Cat the first inning to hold off Atlanta while Don Pavletich rapped an eighth-inning sacrifice fly, giving the Red Sox the edge over the National League champion Reds. Ken Henderson's three-run double in the sixth inning, helped San Francisco beat Tokyo. Juan Marichal pitched the first three frames for the Giants and gave up three runs, including a two-run triple by Michiyo Arito. Don Kessinger's triple and Ron Santo's two-run single capped a three-run fourth inning for the Cubs and helped overcome a solo homer by the Indians' Ken Harrelson. Dave Robinson and Dave Campbell each slugged home runs for San Diego while Dick Green had one for the A's and Roberto Pena's ninth-inning single snapped a 3-3 tie and gave the Brewers their victory.

At times, All's big brown eyes showed signs of fear. At other times they were dull and glassy. But Ali always managed to come back. Frazier stole some of Ali's ihunder. In the fifth round, he laughed at Ali through bloody teeth. He dropped his arms to his side, dared Ah' to hit him and taunted his foe aa he laced out with lunging lefts. Frazier's principal weapon was his lightning-like left hook, almost too fast to see and damaging proud enough to head back snap Ali's so hard it looked as it it might break at the neck.

Clay found out differently 21 seconds after the final round started. A whistling left hand by way of Beaufort, South I Carolina —"some of the shots I I hit htm with 1 went back home and got " —sent Clay pars over teakettle to the canvas. He flipped over like a cartwheel, his feet going up in the air while his back and buttocks hit the canvas. He was up in no time at all, before the count of 4 <n fact, but when he got back up he somehow looked unlike the "The Greatest" anymore. The back of his royal crimson trunks were soiled from where they had rubbed against the floor and what's more, they were slipping. It was really all over then, although Clay somehow hung on | for the remainder of the round. i Maybe thern was some omen I of what was to come earlier in jthe evening when Clay's i younger brother, Ramathan Ali, | lost his first professional fight I to Don McAlindfii, a charging j straight-ahead rhino-like heavy- jweight from Coventry, Kng- ' land.

Frazier resented the display end asked afterward, what he thought of Ali's antics, barked crisply: "Clowning? He wasn't clown- Ing. He was too tired to move." Ali, wearing red velvet trunks end tassled white-and-red shoes frequently shook off Frazier's hardest jolts and waved conso lation to his body of admirers. At the end of the sixth round Ali, shaken by a succession 01 Frazier hooks, t u r n e d to the crowd and yelled: "No contest." "Ali, Ali, Ali!" the crowd yelled back.

The Associated Press score card bad it 9-5-1 for Frazier. Ali held his own in the earlj rounds. The middle rounds—tin eighth through the lath—were aHl Frazier. After being shake: in the llth and falling to om knee on a slip, Ali appeared dei initely beaten. His legs wobbled. His eyes were glazed. His once sharp punches were flabby and infective. But he came back to win th« 14th, while the crowd yelled. In the first 20 seconds of the final round Frazier cut looae « murderous hook—"I brought rom the country," he said—and Ali hit the deck on hi* back like » concrete block. He was up at our, took the mandatory eight count and then hung on—only nerve keeping him erect. Then it was over. Fraaier'i land wa<3 raised. And Bundini cried. Fans Agree Continued From Page 8. said Frazier seemed to be mere- y patting Ali when he had open- ngs for heavy punches and that All didn't live up to his reputa- ion. British sports writeri mourned the passing of Ali, long a favortie in Britain, in what top promoter Harry Levene described as "a magnificent fight." Thousands of fans stayed up all night to hear the fight ref- ports on radio. A few thousand laid hefty prices to watch the fight in 29 movie theaters via satellite relays from New York. Levene said Ali "probably took more punishment ... than lie has done in all his previous contests put together, yet h* went out like a champion." Jim Wicks, manager of British heavyweight champion Henry Cooper whom Ali floored as « world contender in 1966, said: "Ali ... has lost a lot of hi* edge. In 15 rounds his legs were bound to go," In Italy, millions of fans shivered all night in unheated parlors to hear running reports via satellite on the state-run radio and television networks. Many stayed away from work to get some sleep. Others organized all - night parties to watch the fight. The Rome Sports Daily Corriera Dello Sport stayed open later than usual to come out a whole front page devoted to a round- by-round account of the fight headlined "Glory to Frazier." Italian television paid a reported $100,000 for transmission rights for the figtt. It has only run middle of the night transmissions twice before —the first moon landing and Italy's finals match in the World Soccer Cup in Mexico City last summer. An estimated 54 million Italians watched the transmissions early Tuesday. It tastes the way you'd expect a great whiskey to taste. Always smooth, Always comfortable.
