NwKtwMt Arlumtm TIMiS, Thur*., April 17, IM9 PAVITTIVILLI, ARKANSAS Chicago Pitching Silences Cards By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Ferguson Jenkins and Red Schoendienbt took turns shaking up the St. Louis Cardinals, Mike Shannon shook up Glenn Beckert. and the Chicago Cubs arc shaking up the National League's Eastern Division with their best start in 34 years. Jenkins, only Cub pitcher tagged with a loss in nine games so far this young season. cooked the Cardinals with five hits in a 1-0 blanking Wednesday night. After the NI/s defending c-hamps' f i f t h loss in nine games. Manager Schoendienst announced he was benching t h r e of last year's stars--Lou Brock, Tim McCarver and Julian Ja vier--for tonight's game with t h e Cubs. Beckert. the Cubs' second baseman, was carried from the field in the seventh after Shannon, an ex-college football quar- terback slammed into him while sliding into second. Beckett apparently was not seriously injured, but was taken to a hospital for X rays and further examination. Shannon didn't require hospitalization, though he said, "I've got a big lump on my head." Ron Santo. Cub third baseman and Bcekprt's roommate, said he was at first frightened by the collision. "All 1 saw w a s my roomies head go back--bang! I thought ·Oh. my Uud.' I w e n t over U him and asked 'lloomie are you all right. 1 He said. '1 can't see out of one pye.' 1 thought he was paralyzed. HP wasn't moving iiist lying there and looking straight." The Cubs picked up their lone run in the third off lefty Steve Carlton when Billy Williams singled, and moved around on a w a l k . K r n i e Banks' sacrifice and an infield hit by Randy Hundley. Schoendienst ordered a day's rest for Brock, McCarver and Javier because they "aren't hitting. Maybe a day off will give them a little help." Brock had only four hits in 40 trips this season, Javier is 6-for 29 and McCarver 7-for-37. Meanwhile, in other games Los Angeles back Bill Singer's four-hit pitching with four homers in a 9-1 conquest of San Diego. Jose Pagan rapped four hits and drove in three runs as Pittsburgh routed the New York Mets 11-3 and Hank Aaron's 512th homer of his career guided Atlanta past Houston 6-4.

Pagan, replacing rookie Rich Hebncr at third, tripled in two runs in the Pirates' four-run first inning and singled in another in a two-run ninth. The Pirates chased starter Jerry Koosman in the third after Pagan doubled and scored on Jerry May's sacrifice. The Pirates got four more runs off replacement Nolan Ryan in thei fifth. i Aaron's two-run shot off lefty, Denny Lemaster in the first iri-| ning vaulted the great Atlanta slugger into a sixth place tie with former teammate Eddie Mathews on the all-time homer list. Aaron had been tied with Mel Ott. BOSTON (AP) -- Five years ago in his first time at bat in Fenway Park, Tony Conigliaro hit a home run. That's a tough art to follow, but his kid brother "Billy managed to do even bet ; ler. j "Sure I was t h i n k i n g about it." Billy said of that May a f t e r noon in 1964 when Tony, then a It year-old rookie, made such a spectacular debut. "So v. hat did I do my first time up? I struck I out." The 21 year old Billy C. quick!v made amends, however., smashing a pair of consecutive' home r u n s Wednesday in h i s j first major league start, a l - . though they weren't enough to; stop the Baltimore Orioles f r o m ; d e f e a t i n g his Boston Reel Sox 1 11-ft. ! "I k n e w t h e y w e r e gone as. »oon as I hit them, but I don't I really know what 1 thought about.' Billy said. "I didn't really think anything. I was sort of stunned." Tony, of course, went on from his debut to hit 104 home runs in four seasons before the eye injury which almost ended his career in August of 1967. and is now on the comeback trial from that injury. "They didn't surprise me" he said of his kid brother's homers. N'ot with the swing he's got. "\Vc worked out a lot during the winter, and we worked on his swing. Both of us were in real pooti shape when he got to spring t r a i n i n g , and Billy's worked hard nil spring." Billy was a high school star at nearby Swampscott. He spent four years in the minors--most of the time at 1'ittsfield in the Eastern League--with only 20 lomers altogether and without ever hitting .300 for any long stretch. Billy actually got his first chance in Fenway Park on 'uesday when he replaced Tony n right field after the latter suf- ered a muscle tightening in his eg. He came up once and struck out. Starting his first game Vednesday, he struck out again, but then in the fourth and again n the sixth he leaned into pitches by the Orioles' Dave Leonhard and drilled them into the screen atop the left field wall. Despite his sensational start, 3illy has no illusions. 1 just hope my brother gets 5ack there soon.' he said. "He's .he right fielder, that's all there is to it. One day doesn't make any difference."

"But first, we have to get .here.' he said Wednesday fol- owing a practice session. The Hawks, trailing the Los Angeles Lakers 2-1 in the Western Division playoffs of the National Basketball Association, seek to even the best-of-7 series tonight here where they have won 10 in a row. After losing two consecutive two-point decisions to the Lakers in Los Angeles, Atlanta stymied the Lakers with a 99-86 victory liere Tuesday. "We've been up for every game--and we honestly felt we should have been 2-0 after leaving LA." Guerin said. "There's an awful lot of pressure in the playoffs, and particularly when you play away." After Tuesday's victory, defense seems no problem. While holding the Lakers to 86 points, the Hawks also limited the heralded trio of Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor and Jerry West to 39 points. "Lou Hudson did a great job on West, but it was just a great over-all team effort.' Guerin said. "And, of course, we kept right up there with them in re- boundin.c. too." Atlanta won its last six regular season home games and the Hawks h a v e captured their last four playoff contests at home.
