The Marion Star Thursday June 24, 1982 11 Householder's Homer Gives Reds 5-4 Win Milner Throw Saves Triumph CINCINNATI (AP) - Paul Householder had no thought of home run heroics when he stepped to the plate in the eighth inning Wednesday night. The rookie- Cincinnati outfielder had a .178 batting average that seemed to make a mockery of the Reds' high praise for his potential. With the Reds tied 3-3 with the San Diego Padres and German Barranca on first base, Householder was thinking small. "I would have been happy if it was just a base hit to score a run," said Householder, who slimmed his third game-winning home run to give the Reds a 5-4 victory over the Padres. "Early in the season when I was struggling, I think I was trying to make up for things with one swing of the bat," Householder said. "You can't do that." The one swing of the bat that resulted in Householder's fourth home run put the Reds in position to win their third straight game, but it took a perfect throw to the plate by rookie left fielder Eddie Milner to complete the task. Trailing 5-3, the Padres put together singles by Terry Kennedy, Broderick Perkins and Gene Richards in the top of the ninth to cut the deficit to one run. Tim Flannery then lined a 162, Ashley To Collide In Tourney Marion Legion Post 162 and Ashley, who battled to a 3-2 Ashley win earlier this week, have drawn each other as opponents in the first game of the Sixth District Legion Tournament July 17 at Elgin High School. Ashley, 10-5 on the season and defending tourney champion, and the 13-3 Marion team managed by Chuck Emmons, will square off at 1 p.m. on the 17th. That game will be followed by Marion Post 584 (2-12) and Newark (11-4) at 4 p.m. Play continues on July 18 with the first game losers meeting at 1 p.m. and winners pairing up at 4 in the double-elimination tournament. The July 18 first game winner and second game loser will play July 21 with the survivor advancing to semifinal play July 24. A championship game would be played July 25 if necessary. The district champion will move into state tournament play Aug. 8-12 at Ohio University at Athens. two-out single to left field off Tom Hume, 1-2, and Perkins tried to score from second base. Milner rifled the' ball to catcher Alex Trevino, whose tag easily beat the sliding Perkins to end the game. "You've got to go on that," Milner said, agreeing with Perkins' attempt to score. "There 's no question. "The ball was not hit that hard. I got a good jump, came in and got it on the second hop. I had a little trouble getting the ball out of my glove, but I was throwing all the way. "You can't make a one-hop throw to home in that situation. You've got to go for all the gusto." Milner also was one of the Reds' hitting stars, slapping a two-run single in the seventh inning that put Cincinnati ahead for the first time in the game 3-2, before San Diego tied it in the top of the eighth. Milner has a seven-game hitting streak and has driven in seven runs in his last three games. "Milner has just played outstanding," said Reds Manager John McNamara. "I don't know how much more you can ask for. He's doing everything. He's doing it all. " The Reds didn't do anything for the first six innings, as San Diego starter Chris Welsh held them hitless with the help of several outstanding defensive plays. Cesar Cedeno broke the spell with a lead-off double in the seventh that ignited the Reds' three-run rally. "They hit a few balls hard early, but we made some great plays," said Welsh, who attended high school in Cincinnati. "They hit some balls in the seventh that we weren't able to get our gloves on. They hit some where we ain't. That's the key to baseball. "After six innings of throwing no-hit ball, maybe my whammy wore off. Maybe my luck ran out. For me to pitch six innings of no-hit ball, I've got to be lucky."
