SD -July 11, 1976 Sunday Gaxette-Mail ChirlMfcn, Weil Virginia No-Hit Dierker Receives $2,500 Raise HnncrrM/» D1 , . . . _ . . . " ' f HOUSTON (AP)- Larry Dierker has a new contract with the Houston Astros including a 12,500 raise, and he still finds it hard to believe he has snapped what he considered a no-hit jinx. After two near-misses earlier in his 12-year career, Dierker tossed the first no- nitter of the 1975 major league season Friday night, beating the Montreal Expos, o*0. "I had a perfect game against the New York Mets through eight innings in 1965 but I lost it on two straight hits in the "Any time you see a no-hitter, you'll see a few great plays in the field and this was no exception," Dierker said. Andrews made a fine fielding play on Lyttle's hard grounder in the fourth and pitched 82-3 innings of no-hit ball but lost it and eventually wound up with a no-decision when we lost it in the 13th. "I really didn't think I would pitch a no- i i J ? e rest rf m y career 1 di *i't think I had the stuff." Dierker, 29, struck out eight Expos and walked only four as he evened his season mark at 8-8 and recorded the fifth nohitter by an Astros pitcher. After the two early career near no-hit- Cruz made two fine catches in toe outfield in the seventh and eighth inningi. Dierker said he began thinking about the no-hitter in the second inning but not icri- ously until the end of the sixth. Lowe's Annual FREEDOM didn't use them. "If I was ever to get close again, I told myself I wasn't going to give anybody anything good to hit," he said. "But that didn't work. I had to throw strikes. I was too fired up. 1 looked for the corners, but I wasn't too choosy. I just wanted to go after the hitter." This was particularly true in the ninth inning when Dierker said he was "just trying to put it past them. "The ball was rising and sailing pretty good. My best pitch was my fastball." Dierker struck out Pepe Mangual and Jim Lyttle leading off the ninth and got Mike Jorgensen to hit a grounder at first baseman Bob Watson, who handled it unassisted to end the game. Dierker held a 6-0 lead at the end of the fifth inning. Jose Cruz' RBI double and Dierker's sacrifice fly accounted for two second-inning runs, a home run by Ed Herrmann and Rob Andrews' RBI single gave the Astros two more in the fourth and rurhscor- ing singles by Herrmann and Roger Metzger accounted for Houston's final runs in the fifth.
