Kings 2 Steps Closer ——]; Clark, Barbosa Do Calif. Angels Squander Lead >4n 18-Hit Loss ANAHEIM CUPI) — If the California Angels are going to do anything abou: Minnesota's lead in the American League West, they're not going to be able to ^squander many more 6-0 leads. That was what happened to the Angels last night in the opener of a nine-game home stand as the Washington Senators came from behind for a 9-8 win in 10 innings. With the Twins beating Bal- timsre 8-0. California slipped to six games back — or exact- ly one more than it trailed Minnesota by at the all-star break. THE ANGELS collected IS hits to equal a club high for the season but left 15 men on base. The 15 tied a club record. "Eighteen hits and you can't win," muttered California manager Lefty Phillips. "What are you gonna do?" Washington exploded for eight runs in the sixth inning after Andy Messersmith had held the Senators hitiess for 5 1-3 innings. The Angels tied it up with single runs in the sixA and seventh. With one out and the bases empty in the 10th inning, Mike Epstein clouted his llth home run of the season off Ken Tatum, the fifth California pitcher. Epstein hit a 3-2 pitch low and said it was a fastball. The teams meet again tonight with Angel ace Clyde Wright. 14-6, going against Jim Shellenback, 5-3. Big Jobs; Alb.'s Margin Cut to Six The Sun Kings, marking up a couple of firsts for the season in their doubleheader sweep over the Memphis Blues last night, narrowed Albuquerque's margin in the Western Division of the Texas League to six games and made catching the Dodgers more possible. One or —— - —— Star Game Saved NFL Players Relent; No Contract Yet NINTH FOR MICKEY—Here's Mickey Rivers trotting home after the fleet El Paso outfielder hit his ninth homer of the .season at Dudley Field. The blow came in the fourth inning of the first game of a twinbill last night and drove in two runners ahead of Mickey. It put the game on ice. At right is Memphis catcher, Buss Nitschke. Rivers got four hits in the doubleheader to run his batting average to .334. He's the top Kings hitter. (Herald-Post Photo by Gerald Berry) Where Money From Stocks Went SATURDAY SHORT STUFF. The biggest money golf tournament of the year will be staged by Dow Jones at Upper Montclair, N.J., Aug. 27-30. It'll have prizes totalling $300,000. No wonder, with 'Dow Jones putting up that kind of money, the stock market has been down. MaryHuana says the .answer to pitchers who say that umpires refuse to give them the corners^is-to have ' round home plates. Signs of progress: Bay Meadows has increased the price of daily double tickets to S5, What they're doing now: Leu Camilli of El Paso, playing for Wichita, made the American Assn. All-Star team, at third base. Whatever became of Blondy Reno, the gal hound that was a big winner at the Juarez .track? From The Fifth Down, publication of Football Writers Assn., of America: "Did you know that a 1913 Rose Bowl -feature included a half mile race between a camel and an elephant, and another between two guys mounted on ostriches?" Blackie Sherrod of the Dallas-Times Herald says the Texas League is keeping up with the crime trend in the country. Base thefts have increased 32 per cent in the league. One of the disap- .pointments in the recent big league All-Star game in Cincinnati ' was' Morganna Roberts* failure to do her thing, which was to go out on the field and kiss one of the players. The cops nailed her before she got on the field. Morganna is one of the highest priced strippers in the business. Her bottom price, according to one observer, is 51,500. To Sue or Not to Sue Is Question NICK EMETERIO, the umpire who was slugged in the head and kicked in the ribs by pitcher Greg Arnold on June 13 in Dallas-Fort Worth, says he still has headaches as a result of the injuries. He's not sure whether he'll take Arnold to court to ask for damages. "It might affect my career as a umpire," he said. Radical proposal is that team errors be made a part of baseball .box scores. When an outfielder throws the ball in and the ball, through no fault of the thrower, hits a base runner, the proponents say that should be called a team error and not an individual error. Lee Trevino is reported to have turned down a $10,000 cigaret endorsement fee because he doesn't smoke. There'll be no Skywriters Tour of the Western Athletic Conference this summer. Instead, writers and radio and TV men, will meet with the WAC coaches on Aug. 12-14 at the noted ski resort. Aspen, Cola, LeRoy Bearman of the Albuquerque Journal, citing the fact that it may be a good social event but nothing worthwhile from a football standpoint because the coaches may not know their exact personnel at that time and that the Aspen meeting is contrary to what the writers decided on at a meeting in Salt Lake City" last spring, will boycott it. And John Mooney of the Salt Lake Tribune has some complaints about handling of news in the conference. While the WAC may be solid, the sportswriters in the conference may break up. Jerry Here... 'WhizzerV Son JERRY ROBINSON, who helped lead the Sun Kings to a Texas League championship in 1952 (he led the league in homers with 36), returned to the scene of his "crimes", last night, visiting Dudley Field. He's learning to be a physician and will finish his studies at University of Utah. The Western teams shellacked the Eastern four in Texas League play this year. It would take a a fan of at least middle age to remember the exploits of Wilford (Whizzer) White for Mesa, Ariz., High School against El Paso teams and later as a member of Arizona State against U.T. El Paso. He was one of the great backs of the far Southwest. His son, a Mesa, Ariz., quarterback, has signed with ASU. Sport Magazine has interesting article on Jim Harding, the man who was chosen Detroit University basketball coach after Don Haskins accepted the post and did a turnabout one day later. Harding has been a storm center wherever he's coached and Detroit in his first year was no exception. Speaking of Haskins' cold press reception at Detroit, the article said the U.T. El Paso coach would have had as much future there as an Edsel. Somebody outside El Paso reading the headlines about those Canyon Capers at Coronado might get the wrong impression. SITTING TX JUDGEMENT It's a hit... it's an error News flashes from yon press box; Some agree and some do not, Saying to scorer, J"on you a pox." ~ PHILADELPHIA (UPI) — Several members of the National Football League Players Assn. met today with legal representatives but team owners were conspicuous by their absence as efforts to resolve the pro football labor dispute dragged on. A federal mediator said the owners were "on call" but no formal meetings were held by the owners during the second day of sessions here. PHILADELPHIA (UPI) The college All Star game in Chicago on July 31 has been saved, but the 26 National Football • League owners and the Players Assn. still have to agree on a contract within the next week to preserve the preseason schedule. The Players Assn. relented last night and agreed to allow the Kansas City Chiefs to begin practicing for the chanty game in Chicago against the collegians, but John Mackey, president of the association, said the Chiefs will disband after the game if a contract agreement is not reached with the owners. "AT NO time has the NFL Players Assn. intended to jeopardize the scheduled football game between the All Stars," Mackey, an end for the Baltimore Colts, said. "Earlier this week in the interest of playing the all star game, the NFL owners asked the NFL Players Assn. whether or not we would allow Kansas City to go into training camp if they were to agree to lift the lockout imposed on the Chiefs. "At that time," 'he added, "We did not respond affirmatively to the inquiry for two reasons: 1. Coach Stram of the Chiefs stated publicly that the Chiefs could play the game if his team began organize practice by Saturday; 2. The players felt strongly that this dispute would be settled by Saturday and now Saturday is upon us." THE REMAINING 25 teams in the NFL will continue their strike, however, and the other owners will continue to lock out the veteran players. The two sides met in Philadelphia yesterday for first discussions with the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service after two changes in the site. It was the first time in 10 days that the two sides had sat down together to discuss their differences, which amount to $11.4- million in pension benefits. With the first exhibition games scheduled a week after the college All Star game, the owners have said they have considered cancelling the entire season if a satisfactory agreement is not reached. The Players Association polled its 1,250 members before deciding to allow the Chiefs to practice for the All Star Game. The poll came after the owners offered to lift the lockout for Kansas Citv. a little two more nights like that and there'll be a gritty-nitty situation in the race. Those 6-0 and 6-3 victories over the Blues marked the first time this season that the Kings have taken both ends of a doubleheader. IN PITCHING his six-hit victory in the opener, Ricky Cla'rk hurled the first Dudley Field shutout of the season for a Sun King pitcher. Clark, a former regular on the staff of the California Angels, is trying to beat his way back to the big time. "After that job, I'd have to say he's on his way back," said Del Rice, Sun Kings manager. "It was his best pitching performance here. He was most effective with his sinker." TONY BARBOSA, a Chicano from Brownsville who pitched for Pan American University and was a summer draftee of the Angel organization, pitched nearly as well in winning the second game of the twirtbill. He did have to have help from Dave Sells in the seventh, inning. Joe Henderson will hurl for the Kings tonight while Lloyd Allen, a winner here Tuesday night, will wind up the hom-e- stand tomorrow against Memphis. A BIG strapping stranger took over the catching duties of the Kings in the first game last night. He was Greg Dehn, who came here from Quad Cities unannounced. H-e caught the first game and smashed out a double. Randy Brown, the club's regular backstop, worked in the second game. He won't be around for a couple of weeks. He flew to California today to join the Angels in an emergency. Joe Azcue, one of the Angels' catchers, has some injuries and Tom Egan, the other backstop, is headed for military duty. Brown might •get right into action .for the Angels. He's due to return to El Paso as soon as Egan returns from the military. BROWN IN HIS first game with the Kings this year homered and he homered last night in his last appearance before going to the Angels. His three-run blow in the fifth iced the second contest. Mickey Rivers did the same thing in the first game. His •three run homer in 'the fourth inning put that one safely away. The two games had just about everything the fans could desire — good pitching, timely and hard hitting and top fielding. Matt Moschetti at second made the fielding play of the second game when he went far back of the base to flag down Curt Brown's grounder and throw out the runner. In the first game, center- fielder Tomimie Campbell of the Blues went up on the embankment at centerfieldto pull down Larry Hanson's long fly- VICTIMS OF the night were miiiiHiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiimmiiiiiiiii Time Out iiimiimiiiimiiiiiiiiiimmmiii: El Paso Herald-Post Edited by Bob Jngranr Page A-e July 25, 1970 •Ray Ewing in the first and ace Charlie Williams in the second. Bob McLeod is slated to •hurl for the Blues tonight. Clark fanned four and walked only one for the Kings in the opener. Barbosa, the little lefty, fanned six. His shutout was spoiled on John Milner's homer in the fifth and in the seventh he yielded a run. Sells came in and struck out Will Huckle to end the threat.

The perennial All-Star of the Pittsburgh Pirates was honored for 30 minutes before the game with the Houston Astros before 43,290 including a contingent of SOU from his native Puerto Rico, Tears came to his eyes during the emotional ceremonies in. which .Angel Viere Martinez, the'president of the Puerto Rican House of Representatives, presented Clemente with a resolution which said:. "In Puerto Rico, everybody is excited. We have Juan Marichal, Miss Universe and.Clem- ente." THE GAME was televised back to Puerto Rico via satellite and Clemente made it a memorable one by collecting two hits and making two spectacular catches in an 11-0 rout of the Astros. Clemente hit a single that loaded the bases in the first inning and set the stage for a six-run uprising that made it easy for Dock Ellis, who pitched a four-hitter. He made diving catches of drives by Joe Morgan in the third inning and Dennis Menke in the seventh inning. He cut his knee while making the second catch and had to ieave the game but it wasn't serious. IT WAS QUITE a night in the spotlight for the four-time National league batting champion, who has always felt — with some justification — that he has never really gotten the recognition he deserves. Clemente was obviously moved by it all. "I've had two lives," he said. "The first one when I was born in Puerto Rico in 1935 and the second when I came to Pittsburgh to play baseball in 1955. I have been very lucky and I feel gifted to be able to play well." In the other games, Chicago routed Atlanta 11-1, San Francisco beat Montreal 2-7 but lost the second game 7-5, Philadelphia edged San Diego 4-3, Cincinnati blanked St. Louis 40, and New York edged Los Angeles 2-1 in 10 innings. THE METS REMAINED 2|/ 2 games .behind .Pittsburgh in the eastern division by edging Los Angeles on Agee's dramatic steal of home in the-10th inning with two out. Cincinnati snapped a two- game losing streak by downing St. Louis as Johnny Bench and Bernie Cargo homered.
