THURSDAY, APRIL T, 1985 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGE ELEVEN Stanky May Have Foreboding Of Dreadful 54 Repeat on Hill Card Ace Haddix Gets Lumps By Ed WILKS The Associated Press Unless Eddie Stanky really is a changed man this season $5 will get you $10 the scrappy little manager of the St. Louis Cardinals had his hands jammed in his hip pockets, staring bitterly at the ground and ripping the turf in short jabs with his spikes at the Little Kock bail park yesterday. With his head bowed, he must have been muttering something like—"great Jehovah! Not another season like this!" That may not be an accurate quote, no matter how much Stanky may have changed. But it's about as close as you can get in print. What undoubtedly had Stanky aroused was the terrible thing that happened to Harvey Haddix, his southpaw ace, and the struggling Vic Raschi. The Chicago White Sox belted the pair for a 133 decision. It was pitching, or the lack of it, that outweighed the Cards' hitting power and scuttled them, in sixth place last season. The man who done them wrong in Little Rock was Walt Dropo, swatting: a three-run homer off Hartdix and a two-run clout off Raschi. That pushed Dropo's home run production to six in eight days. Haddix left in the fifth, trailing 7-0. Raschi was clipped for five runs in the sixtli. Tony Jacobs came on in the seventh and the White Sox wound up with IS hits. The Cards, meanwhile, swung for 14 hits, but couldn't gel the runners across against Chicago's Jack Harshman and Mike For- game to be played nieles. In the first in a major league park this season, Brooklyn defeated Washington in Griffith Stadium 6-0 as Carl Erskine blanked the Senators with some difficulty.

Billy Hoeft, trying to evade the Detroit bullpen, allowed Just two hits, one a Hank Aaron home run, in six innings as the Tigers lost to Milwaukee 21. Warren Spahn got the decision when the Braves broke a 1-1 tie with two singles, a walk and a sacrifice fly in the eighth off George Zuverink. Cleveland nudged the New York Gaints 3-2 as Dave Pope doubled across the winning run in the 10th. Jim Hearn looked good for the Giants, yielding just one earned run in the seven innings he worked. Herb Score, the Indians' prize youngster, was touched for a first-inning run—the first he's allowd this spring—but no more in four frames. Sammy White hit a home run lu the fourth with two on to break up a duel between Boston's Ike Delock and Philadelphia's Murry Dickson and the Red Sox went on to win .9-3. Baltimore edged Pittsburgh 3-2 when reliefer Roger Bowman walked Vern Stephens with the bases loaded in the ninth. The New York Yankees clobbered Lynchburg of the class B Piedmont league 19-2 with 18 hits.
