Moore Flattens Lavorante in 1 By ItANK IIOLUNGWORTH IiKntitt »wm E«xr A g e l e s s Archie Moore scored a smashing knockout over his young Latin foe from Argentina, Alejandro Lavorante, in 38 seconds of the 10th ar.d final round at the Sports Arena Friday night. Out in front on points going Into the final round, Archie literally ground the South American into the canvas ' in a 'round that made the 12,120 fans shudder in recollection of the tragic Benny (Kid) Emile Griffith but only six days earlier. Lavorante never was actually knocked to the floor, but he was in such pathetic condition that referee Tommy Hart sensibly stopped the match as the huge Latin staggered aDout the ring like a paffed salmon. Hart held up Lavorante until his handlers raced across the ring to lead the South American into his corner. Alejandro fell off liis stool the moment he was placed on It, but the by-now unconscious Latin was propped again on the stool by his corner repairmen. After the South American failed to regain consciousness three minutes later, he was laid prone on the canvas and a stretcher was summoned. As the stretcher left the ring 10 minutes after the knockout was recorder, Lavorantc's ryes f l i c k e r e d and he seemed to regain his senses. An early morning doc- tor's report said that Lavorante was more exhaust- ted th^: bi'jrfJ. Wounded lie surely was, b e c a u s e Moore smashed him with everything but the ring buckets in the eighth and ninth rounds. The 40-year old Mongoose riddled the 25-year-old Latin with devastating body punches in every round and fought one of his cagiest bouts. He never was hurt by the youngster because he assumed a crouch from the beginning and his 5- Inch taller foe never couid solve his style. Moore was a h e a d on e v e r y card after nine rounds. Hart had the count 9-3, judge Lee Grossman 9-1 and judge George Latka 10-2. (The UPI scored it 10-1. the AP 12-1 and this writer had Moore in front 11-1.) Except in the first round, before the San Diego veteran got warmed up. Lavorante never was in front. The bout was fairly even until Moore opened up with his heavy guns in the tilth round and from that point the gallery realized Moore would t r i u m p h by just about the margin he himself decided. Moore did not know that I-avorante had collapsed in his corner until 20 minutes after the battle. He joked with newsmen, then when alerted to the South American's condition. Moore demanded immediately to be allowed to sec his opponent. By this time, Lavorante Mtj rwrn hustlod to a by hospital. Doctors insisted he was hospitalized merely for observation. Before he realized Lavorante's condition. Moore told reporters he had ended the fight with a left-hook to the face. "I never got tired and he never hurt me." declared Moore, who had registered his 134th knockout in 21G bouts. "He jolted me twice, but it didn't bother me." continued Archie.

Dodgers Confused BaU Club uy GEORC.E I.F.OERER t, r-T Stiff Writer LAS VEGAS--This is the city where 9-5 is an odds quotation, not the hours of a working day. It is the city where pennants arc decided ! n March and the National League decision has been awarded to the Dodgers. The price makers, obviously did not consult manager Walter Alston when they listed the Dodgers as 9-5 favorites t u o uucXs ago. The man who must try to live up to that rating is not nearly as positive. As the Dodgers arrived here Friday afternoon Alston offered a one-word analysis of his club: "Confusing". He followed with a detailed explanation of the Florida phase of spring training which should, but won't, influence the odds. · * · · "I SAY IT has been a con fusing bluing fur several reasons," Alston began. "I have managed veteran Dodger clubs when my only concern was to get the players in shape. This is a different club. "It is a young club and we have several spots unsettled. The kids may look great for two or three days. The next day they'll make mistakes and look horrible. 'Take Frank Howard as an example. He hit .290 last year and did a good job. We expected him to continue to improve, yet he hasn't done a thing. He's hit one home run all spring. "It's as confusing as the (Ron) Fairly thing last spring. lie was the worst hitter in the l e a g u e until the season started. At the end, he was the best we had." As the most pleasant part of five weeks at Dodgcrtown. Alston listed the third sue ccssful comeback of relief pitcher Ed Roebuck and the outstanding crop of young pitchers bidding for varsity jobs. * * * · "FROM ALL indications, Roebuck is sound. He should he of great help to our bull pen. We're fortunate, too, to have so many fine young pitchers as Mocllcr, Richcrt. Willhite, Ortega and others." Alston singled out rookie (Continued Page B-2.

P T Vail Wr 'cr PALM SPRINGS -- The Angels o p t i o n e d $90,000 worth of bonus talent to their Dallas-Fort Worth farm club, obtained a $30,000 nugget and in b e t w e e n defeated the Cleveland Indians 4-3 before 1,007 paying who lardly made up the difference Friday. On top of this, the Angels received a prize pitching performance from Bo Belinsky. the loquacious southpaw who could be worth a million do! lars in publicity. In chronological order, this s what occurred on Palm Springs' prettiest day of the season: (1) THE'ANGEI^'purchased first baseman Frank Lcja, a former $50,000 New York Yankee bonus baby, from St. Louis for the $25,000 waiver price; (2) Sparked by a pep talk from general manager Fred Ifancy and manager Bill Rigney, Belinsky turned in an impressive seven-inning performance as the Angels rallied for two runs in the ninth inning to trip the Tribe for the second straight day; 3) Jim Frcgosi, a $40,000 bonus signec, Tom Satriano, a $50,000 baby, and pitcher Bob Sprout were optioned to Dallas-Fort Worth as the Angels Acquire Power Farm Satriano reached the opening-day player limit of 28. The cutting of Sprout, 20- year-old southpaw, had been icLtcd. Frcgosi, 19, and Satriano, 21, had made big jids to stick w i t h the Angels this spring, but lack of experience-- especially at the ilatc -- was the big strike against them. "It was never a question of their fielding." said Rigncy after telling the youths of his decision. "Both have major league gloves and arms. But they need work at the plate and they're not going to get that by sitting on the bench. They've got to play every day. I wouldn't be surprised to \ \ W) BELINSKY Tough on Tribe receiving an $50.000 v.hcn find them back with us before too long." TI!EIIE*\VAS a feeling that bccaufc of his versatility Satriano mi^lit stick, but the acquisition of Lep sped his exit. I.ej.1. a 2G-year-oIil left- hander, was on? of the first bonus players in the Yankee organization, e s t i m a t e d signed in 1953. After spending two years riding the Yankee bench, during which time he appeared in only 19 games, Leja was finally sent to the farms for training. He was still there this winter when St. Louis purchased him after he had belted 30 homers and OS RBI for Richmond and Syracuse of the International League.

CELTS ON TV Lakers Shoot for Clincher By DOX IIAKIHN The Lakers, thwarted in their bid to make a four- game sweep of the Western Division final playoffs at Detroit Thursday night, return to their favorite emporium tonight in an effort to end it all. Detroit, short a regular guard, put in a couple of players Thursday who generally see limited action, and they came through like stars as the Pistons won their first in four playoff meetings, 118-117. However, in the two years since the Lakers moved their home to the Sports Arena, the Pistons have never won there. They've tried it 12 times. » · · « DON OIIL, DETROIT'S high-scoring guard, was out with the flu Thursday night but he probably w i l l play tonight.
