3nbiana Qjaaeitc / Mondoy, June 10, 1985— Poge 17 Maltbie claims big win, self- esteem BOWING OUT — Kevin McHale reacts to a call that went against his Boston Celtics during Sunday's NBA championship series game with the Los Angeles Lakers. McHale was in more distress later as the Lakers ended Boston's reign as world champion. (AP Laserphoto) By The Associated Press For Roger Maltbie. the playoff victory over Ray Floyd and George Burns in the Manufacturers Hanover Westchester Clasic was worth 190,000. And it quite possibly carried, Maltbie said, a greater value. "It restored some self esteem," said Maltbie, who won three times in his first two years on the PGA Tour and was considered one of the game's more promising young players before going into a nine-year tailspin. His last victory was in the 1976 Memorial tournament. "When your game goes, your whole life gets messed up," he said Sunday. "I was a good player in high school, a good player in college, a good player on the mini-tours, and I played well my first two years out here. My game advanced with every step up the ladder I went. "Then it was all gone." he said. "And when you play golf for a living, it's amazing how much self-value is tied up in how well you play this crazy game. "When I couldn't beat anybody. I didn't think much of myself." On the LPGA tour Sunday, Alice Miller claimed the McDonald's Championship. After a couple of seasons in which he didn't make expenses, Maltbie started turning things around with a marriage, in 1980, and subsequent- visits to teaching pro Peter Kostis. "All credit goes to them," the 33- year-old Maltbie said. "But the only thing that makes the work I've done and the time I've put in worthwhile is a victory. When it's all over, that's what it's all about — how many W's you have." His last one did not come easily. Two shots back with two holes to play. Maltbie had to put on a birdie- birdie finish to gain a tie with Burns and the veteran Floyd at 275, nine under par at the end of the regulation 72" holes over the Westchester Country Club course. Maltbie and Burns each had a 70 over the last round and Floyd, despite the handicap of a hooking driver, closed up with a 6-under-par 65. In the playoff, all three players had routine two-putt pars on the first two holes. On the third, Burns and Floyd each came out of apparent disaster with great saves of par, while Maltbie missed a chance to win it when his putt of about eight feet slid by the hole. On the next hole, the fourth of the playoff, Floyd and Burns each put themselves in deep trouble off the tee on the par-3 hole — Floyd well to the left of the green and Burns in a buried lie in a bunker — and Maltbie hit a 4-iron to within about eight feet. "I figured if I was going to do it, I had to do it there," he said. "You only get so many chances." And he did, rolling in the putt that made him a winner again. Miller won her third tournament of the season, shooting a fourth straight 4-under-par 68 to finish with a score of 272 and an eight-shot margin over Nancy Lopez in the $400,000 McDonald's Championship. "I just have been striving to be consistent. I'm just happy to pay my bills and play well," said Miller. "I see myself as just a steady player having a long career." Consistency has been Miller's' forte throughout a remarkable season. In addition to her three victories, she has eight other top 10 finishes. After trailing by two strokes following the opening round, Miller led by two shots at the midway point and by five after three rounds. Her advantage was reduced to three early in the final round Sunday, but she rallied with four birides on the front nine to open a nine-stroke lead at the: turn. The $60.000 winner's purse boosted Miller's season earnings to S277.125. only 833,274 off the season record established bv JoAnne. Carner in 1982. "I don't define success in terms of money or wins. I just know that when I go out and give 100 percent and do my best, no matter what the score. I will be successful." The 29-year-old Californian joined • the tour in 1978, but didn't win a. tournament until 1983. "I was discouraged many times early in my career." she said. "But- I never thought about giving up." Creme Fraiche gallops through mud to win Belmont NEW YORK (AP I — Trainer Woody Stephens' big hope for the Belmont Stakes was Stephan's Odyssey. Creme Fraiche? "He's a tough little gelding," Stephens said last week after entering Creme Fraiche as a favor to the owner, Elizabeth Moran of the Brushwood Stable. "I knew Mrs. Moran would love to run in the Belmont." Stephens had been leaning toward next Saturday's Ohio Derby for Creme Fraiche, but said he felt Creme Fraiche's neck loss to Spend a Buck in the Jersey Derby May 27 at Garden State Park earned him a shot at Saturday's Belmont. When it rained Saturday morning, turning the track muddy, Stephens realized he had an ace-in-hole for the Belmont- "I know Creme Fraiche can run in mud. I don't know if Stephan's Odyssey can," he said before the race. But by the time the leaders hit the stretch. Stephens knew he had a winner. Creme Fraiche, ridden by Eddie Maple, was on the outside and Stephan's Odyssey. Laffit Pincay aboard, was on the inside. In the middle was favored Chiefs Crown. Through the stretch the only question was whether Creme Fraiche could hang on to defeat Stephan's Odyssey. He did — by a half-length — and became the first gelding ever to win the I'-i-mile Belmont in 117 runnings. "At about the three-sixteenths pole I was hoping for a dead heat," joked Stephens, a 71-year-old Hall of Famer who added another illustrious page to his career by becoming the first trainer to saddle four consecutive Belmont winners. While basking in the glory of hav- McCuigan terminates Pedroza's reign LONDON (AP) — Barry McGuigan's stunning performance in ending the seven-year reign of World Boxing Association featherweight champion Eusebio Pedroza of Panama was the toast of two nations Sunday. While people danced in the streets in the Republic of Ireland. Britain saluted its first world boxing champion in four years. McGuigan scored a unanimous 15-round decision over a 32-year-old champion who successfully had defended his title 19 times since 1978. The 24-year-old grocer's son was born in Clones, in the Irish Republic, but boxes out of Belfast in British- ruled Northern Ireland and is the British champion. "Now I am the champion of the world and I intend to go on being champion." said McGuigan, who disclosed he had pulled an elbow li- gament, which kept him from training for four days. It was the first time he had ever boxed more than 10 rounds, and he said that had been a concern to him. "I told my manager. Mr. (Barney) Eastwood, I hoped the fight doesn't go 15 rounds. He said 'You can go 50 rounds.' " McGuigan said Eastwood had instructed him to attack Pedroza with his right hand rather than his powerful left hook. "Mr. Eastwood was driving me almost mental in training, concentrating on nailing him with the right," McGuigan said. During his career. McGuigan has championed the cause of reconciliation between Protestants and Catholics in the strife-torn province of Northern Ireland. Both British and Irish governments sent messages of congratulations. Pedroza. who was unbeaten since 1976. was knocked down in the seventh round and was staggered in the ninth and 13th. McGuigan's record now is 26-1 while Pedroza dropped to 40-3 with one no decision. Meanwhile, Clones, with a population 2.000. was given the unofficial title "Barrytown" Sunday as the town near the Republic of Ireland- Northern Ireland border prepared a homecoming celebration. AH the town's bars and clubs were granted a special license to stay open late after the fight as the festivities began, and a white banner proclaiming the new title was strung across the main street. In Belfast, people strolled around the streets shouting and singing in jubilation, while motorists sounded their horns to signal the victory. John Carson, mayor of Belfast, where a motorcade and a reception was being planned in McGuigan's honor, said, "It is difficult to unite people in Northern Ireland from both sides of the divide, but Barry McGuigan has managed to do just that." Many of McGuigan's relatives were at ringside, part of the crowd of 25.000 at a West London soccer stadium. But while there was emotion and celebration in London, there was drama at the family home in Clones. Only hours after McGuigan's victory, a fire broke out in the kitchen of the combination home and grocery store. Although no one was hurt. McGuigan's mother Kate and sister Rachel had to be led to safety and the house was extensively damaged, police said. Bunyak returns to lead West Lebanon The smiles were wide in West Lebanon Sunday as the Indiana County League defending champs notched another victory. In other action. Coral Exxon blasted NBOC and Iselin took two from Arcadia., West Lebanon 6, IAS 2 Mike Bertolino and the guys up at West Lebanon are smiling. The reason: they have their ace back. Joe Bunyak, who posted a 13-2 slate last year, including two wins in the championship series, came off a shoulder injury and pitched a victory in his first start in three weeks, beating Indiana Auto Supply 6-2. Bunyak fanned five and walked three and yielded seven hits while allowing lone runs in the second and fourth innings. His teammates, meanwhile, took their time about offering support. They scored once in the second but added five runs in the fifth and sixth innings. Vince Curren provided game-winner with a single in the fifth.

Iselin 13-6, Arcadia 5-3 The home team won and the visiting team won — and only one team won. Confused? The simple fact of the matter is that Iselin pounded out 15 hits on its own field to capture the opener, then played the nightcap as the visiting team and won that one, too. The 7-3 Streamers got an all- around effort from Bill Priddy in the opener, as he fanned 12 batters en route to the pitching win and lashed two hits at the plate, including a key double during a six-run second-inning outburst. George Galo, Chester Socol and Tucker Conway added two hits apiece for Iselin, while Dave Small had a pair for the A's. Jerry Ferguson picked up the win in the nightcap as Greg Strittmatter's two-run double during a four-run fourth was the key blow. Dave Pearce had two of Arcadia's six hits.

Hours: Mon.-Fri. 8-5:30, Sat. 8-Noon, 459-9330 ing the first 1-2 Belmont finishers since 1907, Stephens said Sunday his 3-year-olds will go separate ways. "With the little gelding, there's nothing to get but money," Stephens said. "I'll try to space him out as well as I can ... try to take care of him and hope he runs until he's 10 years old. I already call him John Henry Jr." John Henry, the leading thoroughbred winner of all time, is a 10-year- old gelding still in training. Stephan's Odyssey, the Kentucky Derby runner-up who skipped the Preakness, is being pointed for the Travers Stakes at Saratoga Aug. 17 as a means to enhance the son of Danzig's status as a future stallion. The Travers is likely to see Spend a Buck, the Kentucky Derby winner who skipped the Preakness and Belmont. the second and third legs of the Triple Crown, and picked up a $2.6 million jackpot from the Jersey Derby. AT COLONIAL The iv 4 -mile 3-year-old test may also get Chiefs Crown, who finished 4'i lengths behind Stephan's Odyssey in the Belmont, but it won't get Tank's Prospect. The Preakness winner went lame and was eased up 70 yards from the finish line and wound up last in the field of 11. D. Wayne Lukas, the colt's trainer, said Tank's Prospect's racing career was over because of a pulled right front suspensory ligament. "I would not attempt to bring this horse back because it would compromise his form." he said. The status of Chief s Crown, the 2- year-old champion, has nosedived in the Triple Crown races. With a third-place finish in the Kentucky Derby, a second in the Preakness. and a third in the Belmont. Chiefs- Crown became only the third horse- to lose all three legs as the favorite, joining Correlation (1954) and My Dad George (1970).
