THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, April 24, 1983 Rakow A's Ace; Dumps Detroit KANSAS CITY (AP) - Ed Rakow, a Los Angeles Dodgers farmhand just three years ago, has become the ace of the Athletics pitching staff with a chance to become Kansas City's first 20- game winner. The 26-year-old right-hander has an, earned run average of 1.08 and 2-1 woii-lost record after his five- hit 3-1 victory over Detroit Tuesday. "Ed certainly has a chance to win 20 for us," said manager Ecklie Lopal. "We're counting on him as one of our leaders." Control problems have plagued Rakow in the past but not this season. He hasn't walked a batter in 17 consecutive innings. Rakow has an excellent fast ball, but he was stopping the Tiger sluggers with breaking pitches. The right-handed batters looked at a lot of sliders and the lefties were slopped with sharp curves. "My slider was better than in the other two games I pitched," Rakow said. "My curve was breaking better, too. "I believe the best part of my pitching was not walking a batter. I didn't throw many fast balls. That one to (Norm) Cash was a little high and he really socked it." Cash's home run was all the Detroit scoring. Rakow struck out nin.e, giving him 18 strikeouts i;ith only four walks in 25 innings this season. Rakow shut out Los Angeles 6-0 in his first start, a two-hitter, and permitted Chicago only two earned .runs in seven innings. Ray Herbert pitched a shutout for the White Sox. however, and Rakow took the loss. He now has both of the staff's complete games and its only shutout. Last season he won 14, lost 17, led the club with 11 complete games and pitched two of the staff's four shutouts. The pitching of Rakow, Orlando Peha and Dave Wickersham (both 2.08 ERA) is a major reason the Athletics arc only a half game from first place going into tonight's game with the leading Orioles in Baltimore. Rakow started in the Dodger farm chain in 1957. In 1960, he was recalled from Spokane, given a brief trial, then traded to the A's for pitcher Howard Reed and cash. Reed didn't make the Dodger varsity. Rakow was tried as a starter by the A's in 1961, then sent to the bullpen. He finished 2-8 with a 4.75 ERA. He came fast last season and this spring has shown the confidence and poise a big winner must have. Rakow and the other pitchers have kept us right up there, Lopat said. "Our big guns haven't been hitting but they will when it gets warmer." ' Scoreboard By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League W. L. Pet. G.B.

Dating, Swimming Better Than Playing Ball With Boys SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP)When tomboy Linda Cooper realized she couldn't play baseball with the boys any more, she started on the road to diving fame. "Now I date the boys and I like it a lot better." said the attractive 18-year-old brunette from San Bernardino, Calif., today. The curvy coed from Long Beach State College is the queen of the platform performers in the United States right now. She is rated the outstanding favorite to add the Pan-American Games gold medal to her collection this Thursday and Friday. After that, if all goes well, it will be the big 117 for the Olympic crown in Tokyo in 1964.

"Thai's what I'm working for now," said Linda as she practiced her breath-taking plunges and spins from the 10-meter — about 33 feet — tower at the plush Palmeiros Coub. "This is my first experience in international competition and I can hardly believe it's all true. Tokyo just seems like a dream." The 5-foot-4, 118-pound American platform titlehoder said she stopped playing ball with the boys when she was 12. "I was always a tomboy," she said. "Then it dawned on me I couldn't play baseball with the boys all of the time. So I turned to swimming and later diving. It's marvelous." Z. Milllken, Williamsburg. S. Stevens, Lane. 4.

Celtics, Lakers Ready To Go LOS ANGELES (AP)-If confidence were a true barometer the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers would finish tonight's sixth game of their National Basketball Association title playoff series in a tie. Both squads are rested and ready for their best. The Celtics have a 3-2 edge in games and need only one more to register their fifth consecutive NBA championship. The Lakers feel they have recovered from a shaky start and now are ready to roll. Get out and Buy Now No Money Down MALOTT Hdwe. & Appliances 116 S. Main OTTAWA BOWL 418V 2 N.
