Palmer Underscores 'Error' with Victory By The Associated Press Jim Palmer would like to set the record straight. "I never called Darrell Johnson an idiot," said Palmer, one of a number of top American League pitchers who were not selected by the Boston manager to participate in Tuesday night's All-Star Game. "Someone else said it — I just agreed with him." As if to underscore the error of Johnson's ways, the 30- year-old Baltimore ace blanked the California Angels 4-0 Thursday night on three singles, becoming the first 12- game winner in the American League. After a slow start, Palmer — the Cy Young Award winner two of the last three years — Page 8 Garden City Telegram Friday, July 16,1976 Box Score KI1IST (iAMK HUSTON KANSAS CITY jib r h hi ab r h bl Cooper Ib 5111) Cowcns rf 5 I I (I 4 I 1 (I oils cf 5121 5 n I n Gllrclt .Ib 4331 4111 Mayberry Ib 3 2 0 0 3111 McRae If 2221 3021 Wohlford If 4022 Quirk dh Pctrocclli3b 4000 Stinsonc Burlesnn ss 4110 Potck ss Pole p 0000 DNelson 2b Cleveland p 0 0 (l 0'Itojas2b Mouse p 0000 KWhile ss HLee p 0000 Leonard p has won six of seven decisions since June 15. His record is up' to 12-8, his earned run average down to 2.89. In other American League night games, Detroit edged Oakland 3-2 in 11 innings, Minnesota beat Cleveland 5-2 and Chicago defeated Milwaukee 5-3 in 10 innings. In two twinight doubleheaders, the New York Yankees swept Texas 7-6 and 6-4, the second game in 10 innings, and Kansas City split with Boston, winning the opener 12-5 but dropping the nightcap 2-1. Palmer was overpowering against California, giving up just three singles — and two of those runners were erased on double plays. Reggie Jackson drove in three runs, two of them on his 10th home run' of the season, and Al Bumbry scored three runs for Baltimore, which has won its last five outings. Afterwards, Palmer said it's no surprise the National League has won 13 of the last 14 All-Star Games. "I'm sick and tired of losing to the National League, but it's understandable," he said. "They take their best players and we don't — and it doesn't just apply to pitchers." Yankees 7-6, Rangers 6-4 Carlos May's three-run homer and Mickey Rivers' three hits and two runs batted in powered the Yankees to victory in the opener despite a shaky seventh inning during which relief ace Sparky Lyle faced three batters and walked them all, forcing in * . * two runs. But with,the bases loaded and New York's lead down to one run, Dick Tidrow came on and got Roy Howell on an inning-ending grounder. Tidrow also picked up a save in the second game, coming on in the 10th inning to get the final out after Sandy Alomar's two-run homer put the Yankees on top. Tigers 3, A's 2 A's center fielder Bill North dropped his second fly ball of the game with the bases loaded and two out in the llth inning, allowing pinch-runner Mickey Stanley to score with the winning run. The Tigers loaded the bases in the llth on a hit batsman and two walks. Oakland relief ace Rollie Fingers got Alex Johnson to bounce into a force- out and then struck out Aurelio Rodriguez. Pinch-hitter Dan Meyer lofted a fly ball to center and North — who dropped one in the third inning to let in one run — midhandled it as Stanley came home. Twins 5, Indians 2 Twins infielder Roy Smalley, who >went into Thursday night's game with a .212 batting average and just 14 runs batted 'in, collected three hits and knocked in three runs. He cracked a two- run triple in the second inning and squeezed home another run with a bunt in the fifth as Minnesota dealt Cleveland its ninth loss in the last 10 games. White Sox 5, Brewers 3 Ray Sadecki relieved Milwaukee starter Jim Slaton with two out in the 10th inning ' * * * and Pat Kelly greeted him with a two-run homer to the upper deck in right-center, giving Chicago the victory in a game in which all the runs came in on homers. Earlier, Chet Lemon had 'a solo shot and Jack Brohamer a two-run blast for Chicago while George Scott hit a three-run homer for Milwaukee. Royals 12-1, Red Sox 5-2 Bob Stinson drove in four " runs and Jaime Quirk knocked in three in the opener as Kansas City pounded four Boston pitchers for 16 hits. The Red Sox came back to take the second game, scoring both their runs in the sixth inning and then hanging on behind the pitching of rookie Rick Jones and Jim Willoughby.

Jones, 21-year-old left- hander, checked the Kansas City Royals on eight hits Thursday night and allowed the Boston Red Sox to post a 21 victory to gain a split of their doubleheader. In the opener, the Royals teed off on four Boston pitchers and pounded out 16 hits and a 12-5 victory. In the second game Jones, mixing his fastballs and slow breaking pitches, had an eight-hit shutout going into the ninth. Then George Brett, who raised his average to .371 in the two games, singled and took third . on Carl Yastr- zemski's fielding error. John Mayberry's single brought home Brett. Then two outs later, with Mayberry on second, pinchhitter Jamie Quirk slapped a delivery from reliever Jim Willoughby into shallow centerfield. Miller made a diving, game- saving catch and the game was history. "I thought Jamie's ball was in there," Herzog signed. "But Miller's a good outfielder. And the kid pitched good." "Milter made a hell of a catch," Johnson smiled. "And the young kid pitched great. Pitching makes it go." Jones, 3-0, was locked in a scoreless duel with Doug Bird, 9-2, until the sixth inning and , consecutive lead-off singles by Cecil Cooper and Yastremski. A sacrifice fly by Jim Rice brought home Cooper and a few minutes later, to the •astonishment of everyone in Royals Stadium, Yastr- zemski, who had stolen only three bases- all year, bolted toward third. Royals catcher Buck Martinez hurled;the ball to Brett covering the bag, but the throw was wild into centerfield and Yastrzernski jogged home. ; "No, he doesn't steal many bases,'" agreed Johnson. "But that man can do a lot of things when it comes time to win a game.'" "They just out-deferised us," said Herzog. "Bird pitched good, too, but he had a mental lapse and let Yaz steal third on him." The first game was all Kansas City. Bob Stinson drove home four runs with a single, double and triple and Quirk, batting as designated hitter, knocked in thfee runs on three hits. Dennis Leonard, 9-3, went the distance to gain his tenth victory against three defeats. Dick Pole, 4-5, surrendered three runs in working only two-thirds of the first inning and took the loss.

"The merger talks are not going as well as we'd hoped but as well as expected," said Indiana Pacers executive Bill Eason, but he added, '"We have met the NBA requirement for the $1 million. That is, it is in the bank." He said he hoped for a final agreement within a few days. The deposits Thursday were strictly paper transactions for the New York Nets, Denver Nuggets, San Antonio Spurs and Pacers. A second payment of $2 million each is due Sept. 15. 181-Yard Hole Turns Out To Be A One-Shot Affair Buffalo Dunes Golf Course —. in the rolling sand hills south of Garden City — has been in operation only 3'/ 2 months. But the 18-hole, grass-greened layout already has recorded three holes-in-one. Third ace in the history of the new municipal golf course was put on the books Wednesday evening. Getting the big thrill this time was Dan Johnson, 48-year-old manager of Otasco here. Johnson aced his tee shot on the 181-yard No. 8 hole, using a No. 3 wood. It was the first-ever ace in his links career, which covers about a decade. His reaction: "It does give you a fantastic feeling to make a hole-in-one. I'll remember the shot for a long time." Johnson transferred to Garden City with Otasco in October of 1969 from Wichita. His previous closest to an ace was some years ago on a course at Monett, Mo.' 1 ' I guess my shot that time stopped about one foot from the cup." One of the two other aces recorded at Buffalo Dunes this inaugural season also came on the No. 8 hole. That was last month by 15-year-old John Jenkins. First- ever ace in the history of the brand-new course came on April 11. That's when Jerry Brown plunked in his tee shot on the 151-yard No. 17 hole. Buffalo Dunes opened April 1. Wednesday's ace came during the first round of the new Merchants Golf League. Johnson was competing for the Buffalo Dunes team, playing a match against Triple-S Steel. His teammate was Mark Nelson. Their Johnson. . .'fantastic' opponents were Mick Ringler and John McCracken. All four men watched the rare shot. "I think my tee shot hit about eight or 10 yards, short of the green," Johnson recalled. "It took a bounce, then trickled in." He finished his round of nine holes with 46 strokes. Par for the first nine is 36. Johnson is a member of Buffalo Dunes. In previous seasons here he had been playing at Jaycee Airlinks, Lakin, and Scott City. Golf Pros 'Eat up' Westchester HARRISON, N.Y. (AP) — Carlton "Slugger" White and David Graham would figure to be breathing easy today after shooting eight-under-par 63s in Thursday's first round of the $300,000 Westchester Golf Classic. No such luck for the 27-vear- old White, a comparative unknown on the Professional Golfers Association tour, and Graham, a five-year veteran who hasn't won since 1972. Instead of a three-or four-. stroke margin, White and Graham went off in the second round with just a one stroke Legion Baseball Meet Set Here Clint Lightner Field here will be the site of the annual District 7 sub-district American Legion youth baseball tourney later this month. The double-elimination meet will run Saturday and Sunday, July 24 and 25. A single game may also be necessary on Monday evening, July 26. Four teams will compete here: Garden City's Bison, Ulysses, Hugoton, and Dodge City. Garden opens against Ulysses at 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 24. Other first-round contest send Hugoton against Dodge City at 3 p.m. on the same date. The meet here is the western sub-district tourney for District 7. A similar four- team eastern meet (Hutchinson, Great Bend, Lamed, and Lyons) is also planned simultaneously at Lamed. Winners of the two sub- district meets then come together for a best 2-of-3 playoff series. That will decide the overall District 7 champion — and will send a club to the annual state Class A American Legion tourney. Additional information on the meet here will be listed in a future issue of the Telegram. lead over Tom Watson and Mike Wynn, and only two strokes ahead of Mike Hill and Bruce Listzke. The pros just ate up West- Chester Country Club's 6,603 yard course. Of the 168 starters, 23 played in par and 55 lowered the 36-35—71 regulation figures. The scorers almost ran out of red numbers to indicate birdies. There were two at 66, one 67, seven 68s and sixteen 69s, in an incredible round of shooting. The Westchester tournament is a PGA designated event, which means all the tour's stars have to play. So all but the ailing Lee Trevino are in the chase for the $60,000 first prize in the 72 hole test. The field has the appearance of a U.S. Open, although obviously they are not playing an Open course. Three strokes off the pace in the second round were 44- year-old Gay Brewer, who shot a 34-32—66, that included nine birdies and four bogeys, and Fuzzy Zoeller,, low qualifier in the 1974 PGA school, who finished a 34-32— 36 with five birdies. Hubert Green, who has won three tournaments this year and leads the money winners with $187,427, shot 33-34—77, carding four birdies and the rest pars.

In other league action, Indianapolis topped Omaha 4-3, and Tulsa downed Denver 5-3. The Oklahoma City at Wichita game was rained out. Mets' Kingman in Groove; Slams His 31st Home Run By The Associated Press Dave Kingman is in the groove; Dusty Baker hopes he has found one. "My home runs come in bunches," said Kingman, who smacked his 31st of the season — tops in the majors — Thursday night in leading the^New York Mets to, a 3-1 victory over the Houston Astros. Baker finally connected on only his second four-bagger of the year in helping the Los Angeles Dodgers defeat the Chicago Cubs 5-2. "It's the longest time I can remember going without a home run," Baker said. "I had a- streak last year of eight weeks and I couldn't believe that." Baker, who also hit a run- scoring single, last hit a home run in the opening game of the season. In other National League games Thursday, Philadelphia defeated San Francisco 5-3, Pittsburgh crushed Atlanta 13-1, Montreal nipped Cincinnati 4-3 and St. Louis edged San Diego 2-1. Kingman's fourth homer in his last four games came after John Milner walked and wiped out Houston's 1-0 lead. Dodgers 5, Cubs 2 The Dodgers struck early when loser Rick Reuschel opened the bottom of the first by hitting the first two batters. Los Angeles went on to score four runs as winning pitcher Doug Rau scattered five hits.

Cards 2, Padres 1 A one-out double by Joe Ferguson in the ninth broke up a 11 deadlock and sparked St. Louis Cardinals to victory over San Diego. Ferguson's double scored Don Kessinger from second base, handing the Padres their fifth straight loss. Post-Season Meet Cooperation Asked Preparations are now being made by the City Recreation Dept. for annual post-season softball and baseball tourneys for the various local youth leagues. Scheduling tasks are already complicated by a large number of make-up games still remaining. Rec officials need cooperation and help from all coaches in planning the post-season meets. Officials must know no later than 5 p.m. on Tuesday (July 20) whether or not a team is planning to compete in its post-season league tourney. Coaches are asked to call Civic Center (phone 6-2362) by that time. If rec officials do not hear from a team, they will assume thai squad does not wish to take part in the tourney. Such teams thus will not be included in schedules for the postseason meets. Expert Installation CARPET-TILE You Buy-We Install Albert A. Bayer 1713 Janice Lane Thone 275-5491 ; Garden City, Ks.
