Idaho Free Press, \fond»y, July 3,1967 - 6 Dodgers Smother Cubs in Series Final Freese Voices Dissatisfaction With Cubs' Play SPORTS By BOB HOOKER CALDWELk- "We played a lousy game and we look lite a lousy club right now," Caldwell Manager George Freese said after Saturday night's 16-2 Cubs' loss to league-leading Ogden of the Pioneer League. "The only thing we got out of this game," added Freese was a few (four) good Innings of pitch- Ing by reliefer Charley Hunt- and then he went sky-high off form !n the eighth Inning. "You can't make errors like we do and give up (he walks like our pitching has and win. We've got to shape up soon U we're to make a run at the pennant," pointed out the disappointed Cubs' skipper. By winning twoof fhreegames here, Manager Tom Usorda's Dodgers left town 3'/j games to the good of the Cubs and dropped the Caldwell club Into third place. Tonight Salt Lake City's Glanfs move in for another three-game set to close Hie home stand. Game time is 8 tonlgtit and Wednesday, with a 6 p.m. start for the Fourth of July fracas. Ogden blew the Cubs off the field In Saturday's game with i seven-run first inning marked by only two singles by Abe Sears and Karra HalL However, loser Alex Distaso gave up four of his six walks In the frame, and the Cubs committed four errors. Winning pitcher Larry Burchart who scattered five of the Cubs' eight hits in his ftve innings, drove In another run !n the third with a sacrifice fly. Randy Kobn laid the wood to a Hunt delivery in the fourth fora 370-foot home run overthe right field wall for two runs, one man being aboard via a Cub miscue. Hunt struck out the side In the fifth and got the Dodgers out 1-2-3 In the sixth and seventh. Then, he too fell apalt in the eighth as did Distaso in the first. Larry Black's bases-loaded triple to left-center was the big blow ID the eighth but Pat Manahan and Bill Gainer also chipped in with singles. Add to that two walks--Ogden collected nine in the game- and a hit batsman and the damage was dene. Melder Ed Bruksch, who played here last year, made his debut and coined a double but also had three errors-- a double boot on Ralner's grounder in the foirlh. Tom Wtielan singled twice for the Cubs, and Enrique (Rosie) Rosendo drove in both runs with a seventh inning single.

(Staff Photo) MILTON-FREtWATfR TAKK DOUBLE Nampa Drops Hit Fest NAMPA-- The Nampa Legion baseball club hit the ball like champions Saturday evening but visit ing Milton-Freewater did some hitting of their own. Nampa dropped both games of a doubleheader 9-6 and 6-5. "Errors weren't really a problem," commented Nampa coach Norm Hall. "We didn't make any big mistakes that cost us the games. The team played good baseball but MHton-Freewater played better." Both teams hit the ball well and what made the difference was the sequence. "We must have left 10 men on base," said the coach. Milton-Freewater got their hits when they had men in a position to score. At one time we had three consecutive hits and all we could do was load the bases." Nampa used several hurlers in the first contest. 61 the second game Bill Bruneel went all the way on the mound. "Bruneel won his game when we played Vilton-Freewater up there," observed Hall. "Wewere SPORT PATROL Outdoors Idaho 'Rookie' Man to Watch hoping for at least a split down here but we couldn't get It. Cur opponents have a real fine ball club. They got several hits off Bruneel early in the contest but then he settled down and pitched a real fine ball game." Hall said he thought another factor entered into the losses. On Friday evening Nampa edged Mountain Home 1-0 on a contest. at Mountain Home.,,'^9 didn't get back from the Friday game until real late," said Hall, "and it was a real tough game." The kids were real tired in the Saturday games. You have to give Milton-Freewater credit though. They were late getting to Nampa. Their kids jusl got out of the cars and started playing ball. They were red hot." In the second contest Nampa started well. They were able to connect several times off Milton-Freewafer's starring pitcher. The opposition, how. ever, brought in their first game hurler and Nampa cooled off. Wednesday Nampa will host Payette In an evening game at home. Hall slated Randy Shroll as his probable starler. Randy has been looking real good," said the coach. "Whenhe is in form he is probably one of the best pitchers rj we have." Shroll has been plagued by a sore arm through the first part of the season but appears to have licked the problem. The double loss left Nampa with a 6-IE record. "I think we should start to come along in July," remarked Hall. "Our injuredboys are back in action and we have plenty of potential. We should be a real tagh club to deal with by the time the slate Legion tourney comes around in August." Department Mails Hunting Regulations BOISE (UPI) - The Boise office of the Idaho Fish and Game Department has started mailing supplies of the 1967 big game hunting season regulations to state license vendors. A spokesman said that the layout of material is about Uie same as last year. Deer and elk hunting seasons are set up in column form, keyed by number to management units, and hunting regula- tion details appear opposite the map. Closing dates for upland birds will not be established until in August when the Idaho Fish and Game Commission will meet in special session for that purpose.

Drown changed his status when he won the national high jump title in the NCAA championships staged at Brlgham Young University Stadium. In a sudden change of events, Brown matured into a star and opponents will no longer take him for granted. Such was the case in the NCAA meet when B r o w n , a comparative unknown outside his own league, took the play away from the big name stars in the meet. Brown won the t i 11 e with a leap of 7 ft. 1 in.--a magnificent performance for an athlete who came to Idaho on a basketball scholarship. Brown is the first to admit he's got a lot to learn but the Idaho sophomore figures the win was just what he needed and from now on he will be out to prove his performance at Provo w*s no fluke. The Idaho athlele, who came to Idaho from New York, beat out the nation's top collegiate high jumpers-- including Arizona's Ed Caruthers, considered the premier jumper in the land. Caruthers came to Die Provo moot with an outstanding seasonal record of 16 wins against no defeats. And he competed in virtually every major competition, Canithers Jumped seven feet in 10 meets and 7-2 orhigh- er in four meets. But Caminer's impressive credentials didn't bother Brown. Alter the meet he said: "I guess I'm kind of a pressure jumper. If Carulhers had gone higher, I might have been able to." Brown's title-winning leap was his best effort. His previous high was seven feel, one · half inch in a meet at Walla Walla, Wash., in May of this year. Brown's title m a d e him an automatic all · American selec- tion in collegiate track circles and it marked the second time this school year a University of Idaho athlete has earned all- America honors. Football s t a r Ray McDonald, a fullback, also won all-America honors for the Vandals. Brown was talked into coming out for track after the Idaho track coach watched him jump bare-footed in intramural competition. He progressed to the point where he won the Big Sky Conference title the past two years. The future looks brightfor the transplanted Idahoan who came to Provo as an unknown.

FOYT Winner of Indianapolis '500" Written for UPI I wouldn't trade places witii any motorist in the United States over the Fourth of July weekend. I'll be at Daytona Beach getting ready for the competition in the Firecracker 400stockcar race. Why am I better off? That's easy. The dangers I face are far less severe than those faced by vacationers. The men I race with know what they are doing. Far too many motorists don't. I can drive offensively on the race track--I wouldn't dare on the highways, ?nd neither should you. Defensive driving is the answer. Many of you will try to extend yourselves over the long weekend. You may drive far and have to hurry back to start work Wednesday. Or you may hurry to your destination in hopes of getting an early start back. Hurry, hurry -- that's the name of a holiday weekend. I have a family that's very dear to me. I look out for them as you should for yours. I have certain rules of the road that I follow. Don't look for trouble. Don't retaliate if another driver is discourteous. If a driver passes you and cuts in too soon, don't try to get even by cutting him off. This driver's name is danger and it is best to avoid him. Keep a safe distance behind the car in front of you when cruising at turnpike or highway speeds. Figure at least a car length for every 10 miles per hour you are traveling, if your speed in 60 miles per hour, stay six car lengths behini Don't take the skill of other drivers for granted. Do not under any circumstances mix drinking with driving. I wouldn't suggest a cocktail Brabham Back In Running LE MANS, France (UPI- Three-time world champion auto racing driver, Jack Brabham of Australia was back in the running for a fourth title today after winning the French Grand Prix Sunday. Brabham 1 s triumph at the wheel of one of his own Brabham-Repco three-liter racers, gave him a total of 16 points in the driver standings toward the world championship be held in the 1959-60, 1960-61 and 1966-61 seasons. Hiswiiming time was two hours, 13 minutes, 21.3 seconds at an average speed of 99 m.p.h. Brabham, however, still trailed teammate Denis ftilme of New Zealand, who finished second in Sunday's race.Hulme, also piloting a Brabham-Renco! leads with 22 points. Only seven cars finished the 220-mile race over the 2.74-mile Bugalli track. Eight others dropped out with mechanical problems. party to celebrate your departure. Just a few quaffs of beer can dull your reflexes and in a tight situation you need everything going for you. If you are planning a long trip, avoid fatigue. I make it a point to stop at least every three hours for a short walk which I find keeps me alerl. And you young fellows, whether planning a long trip or just driving around town over the holiday, forget the drag racing at the stop lights. This is the most useless sport in ih world and a sign of your immaturity. If you think you have a "hot" car, than take it to the nearest supervised drag strip. It's a privilege to drive. Don't abuse It. For it's a greater privilege to live.
