3D : 1 974 Sunday Gazette-Mall Charlesfon, west Virginia ---- L.A. 's John 'Overlooked' By Most Fans L O S A N G E L E S A P ) Tommy John, the National League's first nine-game winner this season, has a spectacular pitching record but he says a lot of people overlook the way he throws. '. "Just because I don't fog it in there, because I don't throw .110 miles per hour, people aren't impressed," said the Los Angeles Dodger left-hander, who is 9-1. He isn't griping. He's good- natured about his style of pitching being taken for granted. It has produced a flossy 36-13 record since he's been with the Dodgers. He came to · Los Angeles from the Chicago · White Sox in 1972 in a trade that sent-Dick Allen to the American League team. John. 31, says he can anticipate the reaction if he wins 1 No. 10 against the Chicago Cubs Sunday at Dodger Stadium. "People will look up at the Scoreboard and say. 'Oh. gee. · John won again. Nothing sen- ; sational.' "When I win a game, people say. 'Ho hum.' because I'm not an overpowering pitcher who strikes out a lot of bat- · ters. I'm not a Sandy Koufax '. or a Don Drysdale. They'd pitch three-or four-hit shutouts and strike out a lot of hit; ters. I'll pitch a fivehitter and not strike out anybody. Fanned 13 Reds "I may strike out six or · eight--I had 13 against Cincinnati--and people say, 'Gee, aren't you surprised?' "I'll say, 'No, I'm not surprised. My fast ball--which'is above average--was on and I had a real good curve.'" J o h n , 6-foot-3 and 185 pounds, was 82-80 in seven seasons with the American League White Sox. He had 11-5 and 16-7 records with the Dodgers the past two campaigns when he started 60 games and completed only eight. This year, completing five of 13 starts, he has shattered a reputation as a "seven-inning" pitcher, although he insists that was a bum rap. "I've had difficulty going nine innings because the manager took me out after seven or eight innings," he said testily. "I could've gone nine but I couldn't because I was taken out." However, he said he feels Peltry Pitches, Bats Central To 9-2 Victory Mickey Peltry homered and pitched a four-hitter to lead Kanawha-Central to a 9-2 victory over Kanawha-Boone in Big League action Saturday. Rick Stanley also homered and added two other hits for Kanawha-Central. In other action, FAD of St. Albans routed Larobi's, 17-6.

Connors Triumphs MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- Top-seeded Jimmy Connors of Belleville, 111., and Kate Latham of Palo Alto, Calif., won the championships in the Northern Lawn Tennis Tournament Saturday. stronger this season. "My fastball feels more alive for longer periods of time." John explained his reborn strength. "With the White Sox, I used to throw a lot when I wasn't pitching in games. When I came over here, that wasn't the routine for pitchers. "I decided last winter that I'd do what I did before. I threw more in the spring- more than they'd let me throw before. When I didn't have a catcher, I'd take an old baseball and throw it against a wall. I'd throw more than I would in a nine-inning game almost every single day of spring training. I built my endurance beyond what I'd need for nine innings." Best Start Since '68 John is off to his best start since 1968, when he took a 7-0 record for Chicago into the AllStar game. However, that August he suffered a shoulder injury in a fight with Detroit's Dick McAuliffe. His final record that year was 10-5. What about violence in baseball?, John was asked. "That's going to happen." he said of batter-pitcher confrontations. "It's part of baseball if a batter comes out to the mound. "But it's something else when people start throwing chairs and bottles," he said, referring to unruly fans last week at Cleveland. John seems headed for his first NL All-Star appearance, as well as his first 20-victory season. "The thing I look forward to is my 10th victory against the Cubs. I can't lose sight of what I w a n t to d o -- w i n for the Dodgers. You can win 25 games and it won't mean as much as 18 wins if your club also wins the pennant." Kasich 14 In 6-Mile AUSTIN, Tex. - West Virginia University's sophomore distance runner, Alex Kasich, fought-off the 92-degree heat to finish 14th in the six-mile run at the NCAA Track and Field Championships here Friday. Kasich ran a 31:48 which is three minutes above his lowest time ever for that distance. "He ran a bad race, but it was the heat that did it," WVU coach Stan Romanoski said. "About 10 r u n n e r s passed out." Women's Golf Event Opens Play Monday The Kanawha Valley Women's Golf Tournament is set with 32 entries, according to tourney chairman Lou Ella Carr.

Barker said if enough persons show up for the meeting, it will be moved to the city auditorium.

V p Ashe, Kodes Stroke Way Into 4th Round TOMMY JOHN THROWS STRIKES 'I Don't Fog It in There' -- APWirephoto PARIS (AP) - Arthur Ashe of Miami and Jan Kodes of Czechoslovakia stroked their way into the fourth round of the $200.000 French Open Tennis Championships Saturday before rain cut the day's program short. A s h e , co-seeded No. 3, played a steady game from the baseline as he defeated Antonio Munbz of Spain 4-6, 6-1, 6-3. 6-4. Ashe, ranked No. 3 in the United States, never has gone beyond the f o u r t h round in this tournament rated as the world clay court championships. Kodes. the 1970 and 1971 Froni who has been seeded No. 2, seemed to be playing at the top of his form as he demolished Vijay Amritraj of India 6-2, 62. 6-2. Amritraj, who took Kodes to four sets in the Wimbledon semifinals last year, was no match for the agile Czech Saturday and hurt himself with many errors on easy shots. Eddie Dibbs of Miami, co- seeded No. 9, took the first set from Corrado Barazutti of Italy, 6-0, and was behind 0-1 in the second set when rain interrupted their match. It will be finished Sunday. Chris Evert of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., seeded no. 1 in women's singles, didn't get on court because of the rain. Neither did J u l i e H e l d m a n of Houston, seeded No. 7. Laurie Tenney of Los Angeles got into the final 16 of the women's bracket with a 6-7, 6-4, 6-1 victory over Patty Reese of St. Petersburg, Fla.
