12 -Monday, May 24, 1965 Redlands Daily Facts UR Bulldoq nine wins NAIA Westmont defeated 7-4 at Pasadena By TAM IRVING PASADENA _ Posting four runs in a strategy-fiJled eighth inning, the University of Redlands Bulldogs won the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics District III baseball championship Saturday here in Brookside Park. Coach Paul Taylor's Bulldogs came up with the crown with the 7-4 victory over Westmont in the title decider. Behind 4-3 going into the bot- torn of the eighth, the UR came back from the brink of defeat for the winning margin. After catcher John Jenkins grounded out, pitcher Jim Hogan came up with a single into right field to get the UR started. John Moore pinch hit for Bill Townsend and drew a walk. Then, Daryl Idler went in to run for Hogan and Cecil Wright ran for Moore. Dave Wegner drew another pass to fill the bases and Ted Acres came to bat. Acres was safe on a fielder's choice as Idler raced home from third. Wright came across with the go-ahead run when Bob Beck, who was 3-for-S for the game, grounded out. Derek Shelton then took over at the plate and blasted out a single to drive in Wegner and Acres. Shelton went to second base as the Westmonters made the play at the plate. Hogan, the winning pitcher allowed only eight hits and struck out six during his eight-inning stint. The junior righthander helped his own cause going 2- for-4, including a double which drove in a single tally in the fourth inning and starting the uprising in the eight. Gary Sherman, who notched the win Friday, struck out the first two batters in the ninth and then threw out the final batter at first. Redlands scored single runs in the first, fourth and seventh innings. Dave Wegner scored the first run in the opening stanza when he came home on a throwing error after he stole third. With two away in the fourth, catcher John Jenkins singled and then Hogan doubled to score the catcher from first. Bob Beck's double in the sev- enUi scored Wegner from second base. Wegner got on first base twice durmg the game as a result of Westmont errors. Oulfilder Daj'ton Dickey almost cleared the right field fence with a blow in the seventh.

Modifieds Sunday night and C.R.A. Sprint cars on Monday, May 31. All events start at 8:30 p.m. By United Press International The St. Louis Cardinals were the most spectacular, but Walter Alston gets the award for imagination. The never-say-die world champions, frustrated by a 7-0 Met lead and a 77-minute delay caused by rain and muddy playing conditions, rallied for seven runs in the 8th and 9th innings Sunday and eventually recorded an 8-7, 12-inning win over New York. In Chicago, Los Angeles Manager Alston saw an early lead go by the boards, sending his game with the Cubs into ov-er- time. In the 12th inning, Alston had Wrighley Field regulars scratching their heads when he played with two outfielders. He won his gamble but lost the game in the 16th, 3-2.

Kansas City was rained out at Minnesota. Both fighters have fans Rumors rampant in Lewiston as time for big fight approaches By H. D. QUIGG United Press International LEWISTON. Maine (UPI) — On a lazy blue afternoon the boxing capital of the world sat and shushed itself. Be quiet, nerves. Nothing is going to happen. Everything is gomg to be for tlie good of Lewiston. Maybe bring in some new industry. Sunday afternoon, and the streets almost deserted. "Down Easters" stay home of a Sunday. Home life's the best. Makes a body appreciate the family. Home and rest and love and television. On Ash Street, down near where the Adroscog- gin flows, there was some action, the hangout called the Bill Davis smoke shop (pipes of distinction) has two pin ball machines in a back room. An intent young man in a business suit, tall and towheaded, was playmg ding .. . ding—dmg ... ding—the lights flashing. What did he think about the upcoming heavyweight fight? "Clay's going to win." (The eyes kept following the ball.) Why? He pulled the plunger. Ding. .. ding.. .ding. "I think he's too fast for him." Lights flashed in the contraption. What wiU happen to Lewiston; a town of 41,000, with a championship fight on its hands? "Oh, it'll return to normal." What do you do—What's your occupation? The solemn young man bent to his task, snapped the plunger, intently watched the bouncing, veering bail. "I'm a minister," he said. You are? What do your congregation members think? "Listen people," he said, working the machine. A young policeman came in the front of the shop. Who did he like in the fight? "Not talking," he said. Hei looked grim. You don't want to give an opinion? We don't have to use your name. "X Boston reporter said thatj and then put the number of my badge in tlie paper," he explained. Git. Too bad. Rotten journalism. The talk of Lewiston and of its twin city. Auburn, across the power-husky Androscoggin —their combined population is 65,000—is of the Tuesday night heavyweight championship fight between Sonny Liston and Cassius Clay. The town is already ridden with rumors of arriving celebrities—Liz Taylor, Burton, Satchmo, Harry Belafonte — rumors aU unfounded; as yet, anyway. Lewiston is five years away from the 200th anniversary of its first settlement, by Massa chusetts pioneers. Two-thirds of its population now is of French- Canadian descent. It is an old fight town. Professional bo.xing' once flourished here. "But in recent years — notliing; only amateurs," said Sherwood Parker, who's been with Bill in the smoke shop 30 years. Lisbon Street, the main drag, is a shopping center for an area of 20-mile radius in which nearly 200,000 people live. They are uncommoiily friendly. And courteous. And helpful. And they're excited about the big fight. Everybody tells you that. "I like Liston and I think he can do it," said Joseph Clou tier, a soft drink salesman. "Shut Clay's big mouth. I think if Liston gets a-hold of him, he'll get him in the first or second round, and another thing, I think the promotion, the publicity, will be good for Lewiston." Alston's unusual move came about thusly: Cub shortstop Roberto Pena opened the 12th with a single, bringing pitcher Lindy McDaniel to bat in an obvious bunt situation. The Los Angeles skipper called Ron Fairly in from right field and played him at first base.

Lmdy McDaniel took a called strike and then fouled off two pitches trying to bunt, for a strikeout, and the Dodger defense went back to normal. Year's Longest Game Los Angeles tallied twice in the opening frame and then was held scoreless for 15 innings in the longest game of the year. Chicago won it on a bases-loaded walk issued by Howie Reed. The Jlets built their huge lead on a pair of homers by Bob Taylor and a bases-clearing double by Charlie Smith. Tim McCarver got two back with a homer in the eighth, and Dal Maxvill stroked a triple past the outstretched glove of Ron Swoboda for the final three runs in the ninth. Bill White's double in the 12th scored Curt Flood, who had singled, with the winning run, the victory going to Bob Turkey, now 3-3. Houston centerfieUlor Jim Wynn lost Jim Ray Hart's first inning, routine fly ball in the glare of the Astrodome and Hart streaked around the bases for a home run, two runners scoring ahead of him, Jim Davenport's single accounted for two more in the fourth. Gaylord Perry (3-3) got the win and Ken Johnson, who was traded to Milwaukee after the game, was charged with tlie defeat. Philadelphia's winning run was unearned as a result of pinch runner Johnny Herrnstein's jarrmg the ball loose from catcher John Edwards' grasp in the 10th inning. Herrnstein scored on a fly ball off the bat of Cookie Rojas. Cincinnati sent the game into extra innings with three in the ninth. Ed Roebuck (2-2) was the winner and Gerry Arrigo (1-1) got the loss, both in relief. Bob Veale allowed Milwaukee only four hits and fanne dnine as he evened his record at 3-3. Roberto Clemente and Bill Mazeroski had three hits apiece for Pittsburgh but the most productive one of all was Andre Rodgers' grand slam home run in the ninth, which capped a six- run rally. Lefty Bob Sadowski, first of four Brave hurlers, was tagged with the setback. TREASURE HOUSE Your unused furniture or ap. phances will find a ready mar- Iket through Classified Ads.
