June 2, 1974 s PORTS Page-ID BARRAGE Pirates Unload 18 Hits To Shatter Reds' Streak The Associated Press Richie Zisk, Bob Robertson and Richie Hebner blasted home runs and the Pittsburgh Pirates added six other extra- base hits in blasting Cincinnati 14-1 to demolish the Reds' seven-game winning streak. The Pirates unloaded 18 hits against loser Roger Nelson, 34, and four relievers. They raked Nelson for three runs in the first inning and added three more-in the fourth after getting single runs in the second and third. Zisk's fifth homer of the year came off Tom Hall after Al Oliver had doubled Hebner home. Keji Brett, 6-3, who pitched eight perfect innings against '' San Diego in his last start, had to work out of a bases-loaded jam in the first when Cincinnati scored a run on four hits. After that, though, Brett limited the Reds to four more hits. Hall took the brunt of the Pirate attack. He was pounded for eight of Pittsburgh's hits, including five for extra bases, and six runs. Robertson's seventh homer of the year and Hebner's ninth came in the sixth inning when the Pirates scored four times off Mike McQueen. Pittsburgh See Box Scores on Page 5D scored in every inning until the seventh. Every Pirate starter with the exception of Brett, who had two hits, knocked in runs and all but Frank Taveras scored. Pat Osborn, who faced only two hitters in the second inning giving up a run, was sidelined when he reinjured a groin muscle. 'Cease Fire' "Cease fire," yelled Pete Rose, at the end of the game. "This was one heck of a way to end a winning streak." Only the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Reds so bad, win : ning by the same 14-1 scored here April 17. Young Mike McQueen, who had set the Pirates down Friday night, went into the game in relief with a 1.64 earned run average and walked out with a 4.12. "Those guys sure were loose," he said. "I never saw a team so loose. Even hitting them with the ball wouldn't have done any good." McQueen, the fourth Reds pitcher, gave up four runs on four hits. Wife, Family See Cey Shine CHICAGO (AP) - Ron Cey had a big pass list Saturday. His wife, Fran, a native Chicagoan, came in from Los Angeles to visit her parents and watch her husband play ball. There were about 20 of her relatives at the ballpark. So Ron gave them and t. national television audience a real show. He slugged two home runs and a single and drove in seven runs to lead the Los Angeles Dodders to a 10-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs behind the six-hit pitching of Andy Messersmith. '·It was just a te-rifle day," said Cey. "I can't say too much more than that. The first home run came on a fast ball which I didn't expect. Heard Nabs Lead On Tluke' By Bob Green CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Jerry Heard seemed puzzled. Happy, mind you, but a little puzzled. "This is a fluke, a freak," he said after making birdie on four consecutive holes en route to a sparkling seven- under-par 65 in Saturday's third round of the $250,000 Kemper Open Golf Tournament. "I'm just not the kind of player to shoot these really low scores," said the casual, mophaired young man who . usually whistles softly to himself in his easy amble over the courses that make up the nation's pro golf tour. "I might get six or eight rounds at 68 or 69 -- I'll shoot in the 60s a lot-- but for me to go 66-65 like I have in the last two rounds, well, it's a fluke. "I really don't know what happened. "I just hit a lot of good putts and they kept going in the hole." ; : Heard, who finished 1-2-3 in a string of three consecutive tournaments beginning at the Citrus Open earlier this year.v put together a three-round total of 200, a whopping 16 under par on the accomodating Quail Hollow Country Club course and the best 54-hole total of the year on the pro tour. "Man, did I see a lot of putts go in the hole," said Lee Trevino, the second-round leader, Beard's playing partner Saturday and now tied for second, three strokes back. With first base open and the count 3-and-2 I expected a breaking ball." Cey, who is only 5-foot-10 and 185 pounds, isn't new at the home run game or at knocking in runs. He hit 15 homers last year and knocked in 80 runs. "He has good, muscular shoulders," said Manager Walt Alston, "He's got great wrists and good bat speed so he's always a home run threat." Mrs. Cey had a great day, too. "I was jumping up and down and kissing my family after he hit the second home run. It was all so thrilling." the seven RBIs set a Los Angeles Dodger record, eclipsing the mark of six in one game shared by Ron Fairly, Frank Howard and Andy Kosco. Cey blasted his fifth homer of the season with two mates aboard in the second inning off loser Ken Frailing, 3-5. His tworun single keyed a four- run splurge in the third and he blasted a two-run homer to cap a three-run fourth as the redhot Dodgers posted their fourth straight victory and 19th in their last 24 games. Messersmith coasted to his fifth victory against one loss behind the 13-hit attack. He didn't yield a hit until Don Kessinger looped a single to center in the fourth inning and finished with a six-hitter. McQueen also gave up the pitch Bob Robertson tagged for his seventh homer, and third in two days here. "They could measure that on in yards instead of feet," he grinned. "He was supposed to walk but that's the way it is when your are hot. METS 3, ASTROS 1 - Tom Seaver broke out of a pitching slump with a five-hitter and 11 strikeouts and Rusty Staub drove in two runs with a single and double. It was the third win in eight decisions for Seaver, who came into the game with an earned run average of 3.89. INDIANS 5, ROYALS 2 Leron Lee hit his first two home runs of the season, one a grand slam, in powering the Cleveland attack. Lee's grand slam came after lower Bruce Dal Canton walked the bases loaded in the third inning. A'S 4, BREWERS 1 - Deron Johnson drove in three runs with a homer and double in support of Vida Blue's six- hitter. Blue, 4-5, walked two and struck out 10 in his best performance of the season. YANKEES 6, TWINS 5 Fernando Gonzalez scored on an error in the 13th inning after Elliott Maddox produced three New York runs with a steal of home in the first inning and a two-run single in the second. Harmon Killebrew stroked a two-run single for the Twins. CARDS 3, PADRESO Lynn McGlothen pitched a three-hitter.and Luis Melendez rapped three hits and scored two runs, pacing St. Louis to a 3-0 victory over San Diego. The win lifted McGlothen's record to 7-2. RED SOX 8, WHITE SOX Luis Tiant pitched a five-hitter and Carl Yastrzemski drove in three runs with a homer and a pair of singles. It was the fourth consecutive complete game for Tiant, 6-5, who was a 20-game winner last season. PHILS 6, iGIANTS 2 - Jim Lonborg pitched his 100th major league victory and Mike Schmidt drove in four runs with a pair of homers. EXPOS 7, BRAVES 6--Ken Singleton drilled a one-out single in the 10th inning to drive home Montreal's Bob Bailey. St. Louis 3, San Diego 0 -Lynn McGlothen pitched a three-hitter and Luis Melendez rapped three hits and scored two runs, pacing the Cardinals to a 3-0 victory over the Padres. The win pushed McGlothen's record to 7-2. WFL Bidding For Plunkett PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Jim Plunkett, quarterback for the New England Patriots, has been offered a five-year contract estimated at $1 million to jump to the Portland Storm of the World Football League, the Oregon Journal said Saturday. --APWirepholo PITTSBURGH THIRD BASEMAN RICHIE HEBNER FLIES THROUGH THE AIR TO GRAB THROW Joe Morgan of the Reds Slides Safely into Third With a Stolen Base as Umpire John Kibler Calls Play Campanis Blasts 5th In Vain for Charlies National League M E M P H I S - M e m p h i s swept a Saturday night doubleheader from the Charleston Charlies. Brian Abraham dispatched the Charlies 3-0 in the opener and they kicked away a three- run homer by Jim Campanis and a strong six inning pitching performance by Brad Meyring in the second game. Van Kelly's run-scoring single capped a three-run rally by the Blues in the seventh inning of the nightcap as Memphis won by 4-3. The Charlies opened the door with three errors in that inning, however, after Meyring entered the seventh with a 3-1 lead. He was yanked after issuing a leadoff walk and John Lamb absorbed the loss. Campanis unloaded his fifth home run of the season in the sixth inning to drive Memphis starter Balor Moore to the showers. His blast to left centerfield extended the hitting streak of Campanis to eight games and scored Tony LaRussa and Charlie Howard, who were aboard with an infield hit and a walk. The Blues scracthed out a run in the bottom of the sixth. Abraham handcuffed the Charlies on five hits in the opener in outpitching Doug Bair. TheMemphis lefthan- der, w i n n i n g his second straight game, struck out two and walked two. Bair also surrendered five hits, struck out 9 and issued three bases on ball.

The Golf-In had to be postponed because the fifth, sixth and 18th fairways of the Edgewood course were flooded by Derrick's Creek after four days of rain. "We have rescheduled our Golf-In for next Saturday," said tournament director Dottie Lowery of the sponsoring Kanawha Valley Junior Women's Club. This will pose a problem for some of the amateur golfers, who have already entered the Patsy Jefferson Classic at the Riviera course near Huntington next Saturday and Sunday. Any men unable to play in the Golf-In next Saturday are asked to call Mrs. Lowery at 925-1930 or Pat Larkin at 727-4154. Additional golfers still wishing to enter the Golf-In can do so by calling Mrs. Lowery or Mrs. Larkin. j
