A. J. Foyt '500' favorite By MIKE HARRIS AP Sperts Writer INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A.J. Foyt will be the favorite and defending champion Gordon Johncock part of the silent majority Sunday when 33 cars roar into action for the 58th Indianapolis 500-mile race. The race is scheduled to get underway at noon EOT and the National Weather Service forecast says the Indianapolis Motor Speedway might finally get a break with partly sunny skies, cool temperatures and a very small chance of showers. The 1973 race was plagued by RICHARDSON A WINNER COLUMBIA, SC. (AP) - At 38, Bobby Richardson of South Carolina is still considered one of the youngest college baseball coaches in the nation. He is in his fifth season as mentor of the Gamecocks. In the past four seasons his teams have won 84 games against 64 losses. Richardson is the former star second baseman for the New York Yankees. rain and cold. It was postponed twice and had to be delayed for more than five hours on the day it finally was run. I^ast year's race also was a tragic one, with driver "Swede" Savage suffering fatal burns in a crash during his 58th lap; one of his pit crewmen, Armando Teran, was killed when struck by a Speedway emergency vehicle in the pits. Driver Salt Walther was critically burned, along with several spectators, in a crash that aborted the start on the original race day. Veteran driver Art Pollard had been killed earlier in a crash during practice. The story goes that winning at Indianapolis is worth $1 million to the driver in name value, commercials and speaking engagements. But one year later, Johncock's image is not notably changed from what it was before: a journeyman driver. "1 guess you could say that last year's race was a tainted victory for me," he said. "But somebody's got to win the tainted races, too. "I think it was the unfavor- able public response to the race that kept me from being in demand for public appearance and endorsements, like some of the other winners have had previously.' ' The starting field also includes four other past Indy champs. Foyt, sitting in the pole position for the third time, is going after an unprecedented fourth victory. Al Unser has won twice here and Bobby Unser and Mario Andretti each has won once. The race should be a fast one, barring extended running under the yellow caution light and despite measures by the U.S. Auto Club to slow down the wide-wheeled, low-slung, turbocharged cars. The allowable use of meth- unol fuel has been limited to 280 gallons per car, including 40 gallons on-board the cars at the start of the race. That is a cut of 70 gallons from last year's maximum and the lank capacity on the cars lias been reduced by 30 gallons to help reduce the fire hazard. What the cut means is that the ears may have to slow, down a bit in order to get a minimum of 1.8 miles per gallon required to finish the race. A crowd of more than 300,000 persons is expected to jam the huge westside Indianapolis complex for the $1 million race, autu racing's biggest prize. Hurls live-hitter Blyleven, Twins rap Rangers 9-0 Journal SPORTS Fergus Falls (Mn.) Journal Sat., May 25,1974 By BRENT KALLESTAD AP Sports Writer BI.OOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — Pinpoint control and a crackling curve helped Bert Blyleven become a 20-game winner last year at age 22. "I'd rather give up a home run than a walk when we've got a lead," said Blyleven. "1 like to be ahead aso I can challenge the hitters."

The rangy right-hander struck out 11 batters and was never in any serious difficulty. "Yeh we lost, but to one of the best pitchers in baseball," said Texas Manager Billy Martin. "When Blyleven's right he'll beat anybody." Blyleven's victory was his fourth of the year in 10 decisions and second shutout. He also snapped two Jeff Burroughs' streaks. The Texas slugger failed to get a hit for the first time in 13 games and didn't drive in a run for the first game in 11. "I'm sure glad we don't have to face a pitcher like Blyleven every night," said Burroughs.

"I really don't know how to handle it," Green said after taking his second consecutive 66 for a 132 total and a two- stroke lead Friday in the second round of the $175,000 Danny Thomas-Memphis Open Golf Tournament. His score natched the best 36 holes for the year on the pro tour and gave him a solid advantage over little Rod Curl and red-haired Tom Watson, tied for second at 134. Curl had a 69, and Watson one of the four 66s posted in the hot, muggy weather. Green, a lanky 27-year-old from Birmingham, Ala., has won two titles and more than $103,000 already this season and—with the absent Johnny Miller and Buddy All in—has been among the standouts of the season. " Winning takes a lot more out of you than just playing in a tournament does. You get real tired. "I've never been in this position before. It's like my first year on the tour. You don't know when to rest, when to take time off, how to handle yourself." Then, he added, with a grin: "I just hope I can learn this year and have the opportunity to put it to use next year." "I just didn't hit my irons very well and got in a lot of bunker trouble," said Curl, the bubbly little Indian who scored a surprise victory in last week's Colonial National in Fort Worth. Tex. Bob Wynn was alone at 136 after a 70 while Gary Player, the Masters champion from South Africa, slipped from an opening 65 to a par 72 and was tied at 137 with Bobby Mitchell and Forrest Fezler. each of whom had a 66. By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer The way Ralph Garr is going this year, he'll hit close to 300. That's not a .300 batting average, but 300 hits. One of the hottest batters in baseball, Garr added three more hits to his whopping total while leading the Atlanta Braves to a 3-0 decision over the Houston Astros Friday night. "I'm not satisified where I'm at," Garr said despite drilling two home runs and a single in boosting his hit total to 73 at the first quarter mark of the season. Garr's .378 batting average leads the National League, and if he continues at this frantic pace, he'll have about 280 hits for the year. "That's nothing new with me," said Garr, referring to his hitting streak. "Look back over my life hitting. When I get my hits, they are in bunches. I don't mean three or four hits in a row. I mean in a series of games. I've been hitting that way all my life. Nobody knows anything about it but me, but if I keep going, they'll know." In the other National league games, the St. Louis Cardinals nipped the Chicago Cubs 1-0; the Pittsburgh Pirates stopped the New York Mets 4-1; the Montreal Expos Lri mined the Philadelphia Phillies 4-2; the Cincinnati Reds defeated the San Diego Padres 6-3 and the San Francisco Giants turned back the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-7.

Capra, 3-2, in a rare starting role, permitted only singles by Greg Gross in the first inning, Cesar Cedeno in the fourth and Tommy Helms in the eighth. He walked only one batter and struck out four. It was the first shutout of Capra's career. He once pitched eight innings of shutout ball for the New York Mets in 1972, "but they took me out because I guess they thought I was tired." Cards 1, Cubs 0 Ted Simmons led off the ninth inning with a double, was sacrificed to third and scored in a run-down to give St. Louis and Sonny Siebert the victory over Chicago. Simmons scored when pinch- hitter Tim McCarver grounded to first baseman Billy Williams and the Cubs left home plate unguarded during the rundown. Winning pitcher Sonny Siebert, 4-3, tossed a five-hitter while loser Rick Reuschel, 3-3, also allowed five hits. Pirates 4, Mets 1 Jerry Reuss hurled a six-hitter and Willie Stargell drove in one run and scored twice, helping Pittsburgh beat New York. The left-handed Reuss, in pitching his second straight complete game victory and raising his record to 3-3, gave up his only run in the fifth in- nning when Don Harm slugged a homer over the left fieiu wall.

AAA: gasoline supply good this weekend BURNSV1LLE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota State Automobile Association (AAA) says motorists shouldn't have any problems finding enough gasoline over the long Memorial Day weekend. Nearly half of the stations contacted in the motoring organization's weekly survey on gasoline availability said they would be open on Sunday and Memorial Day. The AAA said more than 46 per cent of the stations now report they are open for gasoline sales on Sundays, the highest figure since the lifting of the voluntary ban on Sunday gas sales. Gasoline prices remained stable this past week, with the average price for regular at 55.3 cents, up from 55.1 cents the previous week. The average price for premium was 58.8 cents, the same as last week. St. Paul reported the highest average prices and Minneapolis reported the lowest average, with outstate areas inbetween. Two-thirds of the stations contacted reported they were open later than 7 p.m. on weekdays and Saturdays. PAUL SANDERSON JIM DOMHOLT shots yesterday," said Domholt after losing to his teammate in singles. Both Sanderson and Domholt advance into Region Six play in Fergus Falls Thursday and Friday, May 30-31. Moorhead's tennis team won the District 23 title 4-1. Advancing to Region Six are the doubles team of Joe Haukebo and Dave Malmskog of Moorhead and the doubles team of Greg Pernula and Jerry Lammers of New York Mills.

Unusual roles for both of them, but those were the parts they played Friday night Mayberry, Kansas City's usually mild-mannered first baseman known more for his slugging exploits with a bat rather than his fists, surprisingly became incensed when he was struck just below the right knee by a pitch from Chicago White Sox pitcher Stan Bahnsen. The misguided toss came in the third inning, one inning after Mayberry had tagged Bahnsen for a solo homer. Mayberry then charged to- ward the mound, after dropping his bat. and tagged Bahnsen with his fists, landing with both hands, as players from both dugouts and bullpens streamed onto the field. Finally, the controversial Allen, who has been involved in many fights, including a celebrated slugfest with former Philadelphia teammate Frank Thomas, restrained the angry Mayberry. When order was restored after 10 minutes, Mayberry was ejected but Bahnsen was permitted to remain in the game. But Bahnsen was the loser to in Kansas City's 4-2 victory. In other American League games, the Boston Red Sox topped the Milwaukee Brewers j-3. the Minnesota Twins routed the Texas Rangers W). the Cleveland Indians downed the Detroit Tigers 3-1. the Baltimore Orioles beat the New York Yankees 6-3. and the California Angels edged the Oakland A's-13. Mayberry's homer, his ninth of the season, gave Kansas City a 1-0 lead and the Royals went ahead 3-0 just prior to the brawl on Amos Otis" two-run single. Mayberry was apologetic about charging at Bahnsen and triggering the free-for-all. "I shouldn't have done it," he said. "I'm sorry. 1 just forgot about the game, it's the first time I've ever done anything like that." Red Sox 5, Brewers 3 Home runs by Bernie Carbo and Juan Beniquez paced Boston's 12-hit attack that carried the Red Sox to their sixth straight victory and into first place in the AL East, one-half game aiiead of Milwaukee. The slugging Red Sox have scored 52 runs and pounded 85 hits during the streak. Carbo and Cecil Cooper each collected three hits for Boston, while Dick Drago pitched four- hit scoreless relief over the last 42-3 innings and earned his fourth victory in five decisions. Twins 9, Rangers 0 Bert Blyleven, Minnesota's precocious 23-year-old right- hander, pitched a five-hitter for Ihe 20th shutout of his major league career and received home run support from Harmon Killebrew and I^arry Hisle. Blyleven struck out 11, walked none and shackled Texas' Jeff Burroughs. Burroughs had driven in at least one run in his last 10 games—one short of the major league record—and saw his 12-game hitting streak end. Indians 3, Tigers 1 Kritz Peterson pitched a six- hitter and John Ixwenstein drove in two runs, keying Cleveland's victory. The Tigers wasted the 2,900th hit of Al Kaline's major league career and a sparkling relief performance by Woody Fryman, who allowed only one hit and no runs in six innings. Orioles 6, Yankees 3 Rookie Jim Fuller doubled home the tying run in the seventh inning and Enos Cabell delivered the tie-breaker with a sacrifice fly, helping the Orioles hand New York's Mel Stottlemyre his fifth consecutive loss. Dave McNally was the winner, with last-out help from Bob Reynolds. Angels 4, A's 3 The Angels' victory was their first in nearly three years over Oakland ace Jim Hunter, who had beaten them eight straight times since July, 1971. California's Mickey Rivers extended his hitting streak to nine games with a single and a homer. HEAR - HEAR - HEAR - HEAR - Hear NOW MOST ANYONE CAN AFFORD A HEARING AID!
