I JOURNAL-TRIUNE; lUryivC!,Ct4 Thursday, May 14, 1937 Gisibr Boublo Loads Tribo To Victory CHICAGO (AP - At 1G0 pounds, Cleveland's Brett Butler doesn't often hit a baseball over the cent erf leUler But Butler cleared the bases Wednesday niht by doubling over Daryl Boston's head during a six-run fourth inning that Ufted the Indiana to a 7 5 victory over the Clacago White Sox and Jose Deleon, 3-3. Boston, who had erred in the first inning by failing to touch second base after an apparent triple, rrusplayed the ball" hit by Butler, said Chicago Manager Jim Fregosl. Even Butler was surprised that Boston didn't catch his hit. "Boston looked like he would catch up with it after I hit it," Butler said. "While I knew I hit it hard, I never thought the hnH would clear Boston's head and I was surprised it one-hopped it to the fence," Boston was not available to talk with reporters after the game. The Indians grabbed a 1-0 first-inning lead when Butler scored on a single by Pat Tabler. Boston led off the Sox's first by driving an apparent triple to left center. But Geveland's Tony Bern&zard called for the ball at second base and first-base umpire Tim McClelland ruled Boston out. 4tBoston missed second base," Fregosl said. "He picked up the coach too late and just missed the base." , Geveland starter Ken Schrom, 2-4,' pitched 8 1-3 innings before the Sox loaded the bases in the ninth on a walk Cleamons Will Speak At Jaycees DSA Banquet to Carlton Fisk and singles by Greg Walker and Ivan Calderoxv Scott Bailes replaced Schrom. After allowing a sacrifice fly by pinch hitter Jerry Koyster and a run-scoring single by Tun Hulett, Bailes closed the book on the White Sox by retiring Jerry Hairston, another pinch hitter, on a pop up. "That was Bailes' first time in a save situation and he came out of the bullpen and did a heck of a Job," said Cleveland Manager Pat Corrales. "Schrom also did a heck of a Job, even though I thought he was sharper the last time he faced the Sox." After falling behind 7-0, the Sox scored in the fourth when Gary Redus walked and Harold Baines hit his first homer of the year Boston's third homer of the year in the sixth gave Chicago its third run. It was Chicago's seventh consecutive loss while the Indians won for only the second time in their last 10 games. Reds Explode To 12-6 Win Over Expos MONTREAL (API Considering the explosiveness of the Cincinnati Reds this season, Tracy Jones had no reason to be stunned by their latest offensive display. It was a great win for us, but it really comes as no surprise," said Jones, who had four hits and drove in four runs to help the Reds to a 12-6 victory over the Montreal Expos on Wednesday night. "We're always confident of coming back that's the kind of team we have." The kind of team the Reds have is a powerful one, as demonstrated by the way they used the long ball to overcome an early six-run deficit. Ohio State University assistant basketball coach Jim Cleamons will be the guest speaker next Thursday, May 21, when the Marysville Jaycees present their Distinguished Service Award Banquet. The banquet will begin at 6:30 p.m., in the Catholic Community Center, W. Fifth St. Cleamons is in his fifth year as an assistant coach at OSU. He served three years under former coach Eldon Miller and is now in his second year as an aide to Gary Williams. Cleamons is one of the most recognizable names in Ohio State JIM CLEAMONS basketball history. He was a three-year starter for Coach Fred Taylor's Buckeyes, leading them to the 1971 Big Ten title as a senior. A forward his first two years and a guard the third, Cleamons scored 1,335 points during his career, a total thai puts him Hth on the all-time OSU point list. He was team captain as a senior. He also was the Big Ten's Most Valuable Player that year, as well as the recipient of the conference's Honor Medal. The latter is awarded annually to the outstanding senior scholar-athlete at each Big Ten school and is the highest award a conference athlete can achieve. Cleamons was a first-round draft choice of the Los Angeles Lakers. He played nine years in the NBA following his graduation from OSU. In addition to the Lakers, Cleamons played for the Geveland Cavaliers, New York Knicks and Washington Bullets. He began his coaching career as an assistant at Furman University. He spent one year there before returning to Ohio State. Cleamons, 37, played his high school basketball at Linden McKinley High School in Columbus, leading that team to the 1967 state championship. Bucks Stay Alive In Playoffs; Triumph On Boston's Floor By The Associated Press It had been over two years since Milwaukee won in Boston and five months since anybody beat the Celtics on the parquet floor, but that was secondary to Bucks' Coach Don Nelson. "It probably will mean something some day," Nelson said after his club downed Boston 129-124 Wednesday night, cutting the Celtics' lead to 3-2 in the begt-of-seven NBA Eastern Conference semifinals. "All it means now is a nice win for us, a great win. It kept us from being eliminated." The Celtics, who last lost at home to the Los Angeles Lakers on Dec. 12, had a streak of 33 consecutive victories and a run of 11 straight wins over the Bucks in Boston. The Bucks' victory kept alive their chances of facing the Detroit Pistons in the Eastern Conference finals. The Pistons wrapped up their series with Atlanta on Wednesday night, rallying from a 13-point deficit in the third quarter to beat the Hawks 104-96 and win four games to one. Sports Talk Show Host Fights For Life CLEVELAND (AP) - Longtime Cleveland radio star Pete Franklin continues to fight for his life after suffering a massive heart attack four days after signing a lucrative con- tract to become a sports talk show host in New York City. Franklin, 59, remained in critical condition at the Cleveland Clinic late Wednesday with severe blockage in three arteries of his heart, according to hospital spokeswoman Marion Moseley. Franklin, sports talk show host for WWWE-AM in Geveland, announced last week that he had decided to leave the Geveland market after 21 years to work for WFAN-AM in New York City for a reported $600,000 over two years. 1 Publications like the New York Times, Sporting News ahd Sports Il lustrated have labeled Franklin as the nation's top sports talk show host, based on his wide knowledge of sports and his acid commentary. WFAN-AM was thought to be after the attention he would bring to its new all-sports format that is scheduled to be unveiled July 1. . Franklin was hospitalized Tuesday after complaining of chest pains. Baseball Standings By The Associated Press AMERICAN LEAGUE East Divisioe W L PW.

Brookhaven had goose eggs across the scoreboard until its lone run crossed the plate in the fifth inning. By that time, the Lady Monarchs had already climbed to a 7-1 advantage. J oil Hyiand ( 7-5 i went the distance on the mound and pitched superbly, allowing only four hits, while striking oat three. The Monarch defense greatly assisted her cause, as the team had only one error. Marysville batters feasted on Brookhaven pitching to the tune of 12 hits and the Columbus school didn't help its own cause by bobbung the ball seven tunes. Randy Hayner had the big stick for MHS, banging out three hits and driving in three runs. Michelle Franke had two hits and an RBI, while Tonya Nicol and Hyiand both had two hi is. The victory puts the Monarchs at m. They return to regular season action Friday afternoon. 4: 30 pjn.f hosting county and CBL rival North Uraon. The next tournament action is Monday, 3:30 p.m., at Westerville. Their opponent vas not reported at pressiime.' When the New York deal was sealerj Friday, Franklin was buoyant. "I love Cleveland," said Franklin, f( "But I went to Columbia (University) V ;n New York and I guess alwayp i dreamed of working in that market in the right situation. I've got it. WFAN ' wants to have the first all-sports format in the country and it has the World Champion New York Mets at night. "I'm going to New York and I plan to blow all those other schmucks right off the dial. They've got other talk show hosts, but none like me. They're boring; I'm an entertainer. I am the best that there ever was at what I do, and 111 show them in New York." Franklin's new employer says Franklin doesn't have to worry about having a job after he recovers from his heart attack. "We'll hold a spot open for him," said John Shannon, vice president of operations for the New York station. "I told his wife, through a spokesman, that we're praying hard for him and that they should relax and not worry about anything at this end." Shannon said if Franklin is not ready by July 1, when his contract takes effect, the station intends to call people around the country and have them substitute for Franklin the same way WGN-TV in Chicago did witji Harry Caray, after the Chicago Cubs broadcaster suffered a stroke this year. If Franklin's health does not permit ' him to fulfill the contract, Shannon said, "We won't hold him to it." Art Caruso, general manager of WWWE-AM. who himself has suffered twotieart attacks, said Franklin has several options. "He can come back here, he can go to New York or he can say adios and retire," Caruso said. "He's got some property in Hawaii." Franklin is still under contract to WWWE-AM until July 1. He reportedly has been paid $100,000 annually for his Geveland job. Franklin's audience, the sports fans whom the acid-tongued talk show host would verbally rip apart, Wednesday flooded WWWE-AM with calls of concern and sympathy over his heart attack. The sympathy calls were unexpected, said Martha Brunstem. the station's director of advertising and promotion. "A k of them were female callers' she said. "The women expressed sympathy. The men, for the most part, were stunned and expressed concern." Franklin has been at WWWE since 1S72. He worked at Geveland's W EIRE-AM from 196&-72 and a radio station in Canton in 1967. Tournament Set A men's softball tournament will be held this weekend 'May 16-17 at the Cable ball Held. Four games are guaranteed. Further information may be obtained bv calling 652-1 9H. In the Western Conference, Houston, trailing 3-2, will play the SuperSonics In Seattle tonight. They are fighting to play the Lakers, who eliminated Golden State 4-1 on Tuesday. Terry Cummings paced the Bucks in the final quarter, scoring 14 points in the last 12 minutes, including the game-winner with 51 seconds remaining. The loss was just the second for the Celtics in their last 81 games at Boston Garden and stopped their home winning streak in the playoffs at 14, equal to the NBA record set by the Minneapolis Lakers from 1949 to 1951. Milwaukee was led by Sidney Mon-crief, who scored a career playoff high 33 points, Cummings with 23 and Jack Sikma with 21. For Boston, Robert Parish had 30 points, Kevin McHale 27 and Larry Bird 26. The Celtics took their last lead at 124-123 with hll left on two free throws by Dennis Johnson. Cummings, who had just two field goals in the first three quarters, hit a 15- foot bank shot from the left side to put Milwaukee ahead to stay. "We've had to dig deep before and we'll do it again," Boston Coach K. C. ' Jones said. Boston gets another chance to end the series when Game 6 is played at Mil wuakee on Friday night. Pistons 104, Hawks 96 1 Detroit will sit and wait for Fri- j day's outcome with some sense of j invincibility. , "I told Vinnie (Johnson) in the i fourth quarter when we were down 11 . points that we were going to win," Isiah Thomas said. "I said to him, 'Hey, we can win it. Don't put your head down. You've got to come ' through for us. No one else can do it. ' You've got to get hot.' He just said, ok: m Johnson scored 15 of his 17 points and Thomas 12 of his 19 points in the final quarter as the Pistons outscored the Hawks 39-19. "There's no reason," Johnson said trying to explain the surge. "That's what a streak shooter is all about I guess." Atlanta's Randy Wittman, who finished with 21 points,s said fourth-quarter turnovers killed the Hawks. "We were up by 12 points and then had two straight turnovers," he said. "Instead of the lead being 16, they hit two baskets and it's eight and it put a little fire into their game." The Hawks led 74-61 late in the third period on a three-pointer by Dominique Wilkins and maintaied a 93-68 advantage with 4: 19 left. Johnson and Thomas then keyed a 16- 3 spree with Johnson scoring seven points, Thomas, who averaged 29 points in the first four games, had five, and Rick Mahorn and Dennis Rodman two each. Eric Davis, Barry l-arkin and Dave Parker hit two-run homers, and Bo Dial added a solo shot as the Reds increased their league-leading team homer total to 50 and beat Montreal for the third straight time this year. Davis homer, in the fourth, was his major-league leading 15th of the season, and started the Reds on their way back. LarkhVs homer, in the seventh, was the game-winning blow. "I've been struggling lately but I just got a pitch I could drive," said Urkin. "But if I didn't get it, somebody else would have. "There are a lot of guys here who can swing the bat." While Montreal's pitchers were squandering the early lead, the club's defense wasn't helping matters any by committing three errors. "It certainly wasn't pretty" Expos Manager Buck Rodgers said. "They're a club that lunches on mediocre pitching and that's what we had tonight." Reds starter Tom Browning went six innings to even his record at 4-4, while Randy St. Gaire, 2-1, took the loss for Montreal. The Expos went ahead in the first inning when Casey Candaele led off with a double and Mitch Webster followed with an RBI-double. Webster moved to third on a groundout by Tim Raines and scored on a sacrifice fly by Tim Wallach. Webster gave Montreal a W) lead with his first career grand slam, in the second. It was Webster's second homer of the season, the first coming on opening day, also off Browning. "So what," Webster said. "We bleW the game." Davis' homer got the Reds, who totaled 12 hits, on the scoreboard In the fourth. In the sixth, Diaz hit his second homer of the season. , Cincinnati pulled in front In the seventh when Kurt Stillwell le off by reaching on an error by third baseman Wallach. Pinch hitter Lloyd McGendon doubled him home and scored on Jones' third single of the game off starter Neal Heaton. St. Gaire came on to face Larkin and was tagged for a two-run homer that gave the Reds the lead. i Jones' bases-loaded double off Andy McGaffigan in the eighth accounted for three more Cincinnati runs before Parker tagged Lary Sorensen for a two-run shot in the ninth. a r Mr m if . 4 11 1 1 1 11 !
