8—Ukiah Daily Journal, Ukiah Calif. Friday, June 28, 1974 Safurdayr Sunday games GARY PLAYER'S GOLF CLASS^ Use your weight correctly Elks DiMaggio nine opens play The Ukiah Elks Qub sponsored Joe DiMaggio baseball team gets going on its 1974 .schedule with a bang this weekend with Anton Stadium doubleheaders Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Saturday night at 6 the Elks will open their unofficial or independent Joe DiMaggio baseball season playing Cardinal Newman two games. Bryan Lockhart is likely to start on the hill for Ukiah ^ but from there Coach Al Snarski will play it by ear, so to speak, pitching- wise. It all depends upon who is available, and who is healthy. Early season arm injuries by two boys, a' knee injury to Tommy Walker in his Sonoma- Msirin All-Stars practice, etc. make pitching a key. factor in doublehaders by the Elks. With J6ff Burrell and possibly Kelvin Chapman catching; Bob Vilotti, lb; Jim Brown or, possibly Randy Spagnola, 2b; Jim Hilton, ss; Aaron Adams, 3b; and Danny Burton, John Wilson, Bruce Christenson, Howdy Joh'nsonand Tim Heath possible outfielders the Elks could develop into a strong, well-balanced team, two strong catchers as well ai several poised pitchers are badly needed by any cliib like the Elks playing b&ck to back twin bills! Sunday at 1 p.m. the Elks will play two games with Cloverdale. There will be no admission but donations will be appreciated at Joe DiMaggio games.

Bonds breaks his slump, Giants win SAN DIEGO (UPI) — Slumping Bobby Bonds broke out of hi? O-for-13 slump Thursday night, leading the San Francisco Giants to a 4-2 victory over the San Diego Padres. Bonds hit a single, triple and three-run homer to shatter the Giants' six-game losing streak. "If I play the way I'm supposed to," Bonds said, "^e would have won a lot more games. But that part of my year is over. I'm going to start playing now. "I sat around this afternoon having coffee with some friends, talking about myself. We finally decided I had to start getting on base." The right fielder, who played center ag'ainst the Giants, said everybody has been blaming coach Charley Fox for his bad batting performance. "He's not the reason for "the slump," Bonds said. "Something's been missing from the club, antl I now realize that it was me not getting on the damn bases." Bonds was three-for-five against the Giants and batted in three runs. The win gave pitcher John D'Acquisto a 6-6 record for the season and a: 3-<) lifetime mark against the Padres. The 22-year-old rookiff said he pitched well against the Padres. ^^unicipal park will be the scene of South Ukiah Little League's year end picnic and • awards ceremony Sunday beginning at Ham.

Poly trails in rodeo World soccer semis FRANKFURT, Germany (UPI) — No one yet is willing to claim the 14-inch high $40,000 gold World Soccer Cup. The obvious outsiders were eliminated in the first round and the eight teams that remain are talented enough not to be written off by rival coaches. Said Frits: Walter, West Germany's captain when it won the Cup in 1954, "Every team qualifying for the Cup is bound to have excellent players. But skill alone is not enough. The extra dimension to triunnph over an otherwise equal opponent is fighting spirit." Although all four opening games Wednesday ended in clear-cut victories, eight matches remain and the competition still is surprisingly open. In Group A, Holland, 4-0 victors over Argentina, will meet East Germany Saturday, probably the fittest side in the tournament. , Dutch coach Rhinus Michels already is complaining about the psychological burden of being toumament favorite and, with East Germany burning for revenge from its 1-0 defeat by Brazil, the game could be a tight one. The other Group A games brings together, two South American sides for the first time in the 1974 .finals—Brazil and Argentina. On paper ^Brazil must be favored, but its form to date has not been impressive and Argentina! Coach Vladislao Cap said, "We can do it. BOZEMAN, Mont. (UPI) — Top rides Thursday night in bareback ritjing and saddle^ bronc riding moved the host Montana State University ipen's team into third place in the 25th annual National Collegiate rodeo. A 70-point ride by Jim' Solberg in the bareback event and a 72- point ride by Don Krambeer in bronc riding moved the M.S.U. team into contention for the title they won in 1972; The host squad is behind leading ^Eastern New Mexico State and cowboys from Southern Colorado, In fourth place in the men's standings is Eastern Oregon College. Three teams —Ricks College, defending champion Cal Poly and Tarlton State college — are tied for fifth place. ' Sam Houston State College continues to lead the women's standings. That team is followed by cowgirls from Howard County Junior College (of Texas), Ricks College, Weber State and three teams —Fresno State. Montana State and Southern Colorado —tied for fifth. As previously noted —if Mendocino and Lake county athletes, particularly Ukiah basketball players and baseball players and wrestlers, want exposure to competition, the best available, and a chance to star on a community college team, then Mendocino College is the team to play for! Mendocino College cagers, for example, will open their schedule against College of the Redwoods on Friday, Nov. 29 in Chessall Gymnasium; then, oi\ Saturday, Nov. 30, travel to Saratoga for an 8 p.m. game with West Valley. Then, in quick succession before the start of tough Camino Norte Conference action at Pittsburg's Los Medanos College Saturday, Jan. 4, the Eagles of Mendocino College will attempt to gain poise, precision and points against such teams as Butte, Napa College, and the Sonoma State and ' San Francisco State Jayvees in games respectively at Durham, Ukiah, Kelseyville and Ukiah. As final pre-Conference tuneups . and top-flight com-, petition Coach Ed Boyle also has entered Ukiah in two top pre-Christmas, post-C^ristmj\s college tournaments. Dec. 19-20-21. Mendocino will join Ohlonfe, Chabot, Cosumnes, Reedley '(San Joaquin Valley), Alameda, Los Medanos and Foothill in the Chabot tournament. After a few days for Christmas relaxation the Eagles fly back into action in the Lobo Tournament, hosted by Monterey Peninsula.College. Others are Mendocino, Sierra , and Sdjano, playing at Monterey Dec. 27-28. The Eagles open Uieir Camino Norte Conference play at Pittsburg (Contra Costa County) against Los Medanos Jan. 4; host Canada and Santa Rosa in Ukiah; travel to Richmond to meet Contra (Tosta; host Solano, Marin arid College of the Alamedas in successive leagute games; travel to Oakland to meet Merritt; then, Feb. 5, the Eagles start - the second go- round hosting Los' Medanos. Feb. 6-7 Mendocino plays^horiie and home games at Eruek^ and Ukiah with , Redwoods, then finishes out tlie last seven (Damino Norte' • games, hosting only two the second round, one of them the final game with Merrjtt March 5. • * Coach Ed boyle promises that the Eagles will be in shape — and as competitive as they can be — but to win a few, too, he will need all the best available local or imported talent possible. , , Thus it would be nice, shall we Williams new Angel boss! say, if Aaron Adams and Kelvin Chapman, who teamed so well' together in high school, and withSteve Watson, Greg Bulger and other Ukiahi teammates on Ukiahi's first NBL Chani- pionship Varsity Basketball, team, would wind up at Mendocino, coordinating with returning standouts from last season's first Mendocino Eagles team. - With thfe teamwork of Ukiah and returning 'Eagles augmented by; the addition of a number of standout Willits, Mendocino, Kelseyville and Anderson ^Valley, Lakeport, Lower Lake, Fort Bragg and other area high schools the Eagles could build more depth and increase the available talent, sophomore and freshman, many fold, « The men Who played on, and survived the rugged 18 or 20 games of travel by,, the Eagles squad did a great job with Coach Boyle in .getting Mendocino College basketball off to a good, if not alUwinning, start. Hopefully most; if not all, the Eagles of this year will be back to continue their progress next year. Some of the Eagles^re playing a little basketball now in the Sonoma State Summer League. Again their courage, , their rekl desire to play 'basketball,against ^e best and against the odds, is being tested. Their first game, a loss, was to the Sonoma State Far Western Cdinference Champion seniors; there second to another loaded team, but they are gaining experience, takirtg steps toward a return to' basketball conditioning, having fun, playing a variety of types and calibres of teams, and , learning to adjust to some topflight individual and team opposing talent, and offenses and defenses. Bolstered by some prospective community college cagers from Ukiah and local high schools, and a few high*school seniors to be the Meiw docipo entry in the fast Sonoma State Summer Basketball League should be much stronger as. the summer wears on and the boys really start -putting it together for '74-'75! UPI Sports Even before Dick Williams accepted the job, he savored the idea of having Nolan Ryan on his side. "It's better to watch him pitch on your side than {o be on the opposite side," Williams' said Thursday. "I know, I've been on the opposite side many times." NQW Williams will be on his side. • Shortly before the Angels met the Texas Rangers Thursday night, Williams accepted the offer to replace Bobby Winkles, who was fired earlier in the day. Williams won't join the team until next week, but Ryan showed why Williams likes him by firing a one-hit shutout^ to give the Angels a 5-0 victory. Ironically, Williams caused a controversy last year when he left Ryan off the American League All-Star team despite his no-hitter. When Ryan pitched a second no-hitter jiist before the game, the squads were increased so both Ryan and Willie Mays could be added. It was the.fourth one-hitter of Ryan's career to go with two nb- hitters last season. Ironically, in all four one-liitters, the only hit tias come in the first inning. Alex Johnson got the hit this time. After Johnson's two-out single i in the first inning, Ryan retired', the next' 13 Rangers before walking Toby Harrah to open the sixth. He then retired the final 12 batters to wrap up his 10th victory in 16 decisions. Ryan, pitchingwith four days rest, didn't think it was one of his super performances. "My fast ball" wasn't popping. It hurt? my performance not to pitch every fourth day," he said. But it Was good enough to niake it a happy night for the jjgels. Whitey Herzog, filling in as an interim manager until Williams takes over next week, said, "I wish' I'd had these kind of games when I was managing Texas." Frank Robinson, who had hisk^i problems with Winkles, is enthused about Williams— air though he was disappointed a black man still hasn't been hired to manage a big league team. "I rank Williams near the top as managers go. He's a tough, no-nonsense type of guy who has a habit of turning things around. The highest tribute to a player or a manager is to call him a winner. Williams is a winner." When he was asked about his own managerial ambitions, Robinson said he wasn't disappointed about being passed over. "To be disappointed, you have to know that yoli're considered for the job. But it's too bad about a black not getting a job yet. It seems like when a spot opens up, a black man isn't considered. They give it to someone who's already had two or three shots." In the other gamfefe, Minnesota downed Chicago 6-3, Milwaukee beat Detroit 5-1, Cleveland edged Boston 2-1 and 4Cansas City nipped Oakland 5-4. In the National League, (Dhicago edged Montreal 5-4, St. Louis beat New York 6-1, (Cincinnati, edged Atlanta 5-3 and San Francisco topped San Diego 4-2. Fastball beats A's KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UPI) — Marty Pattin reached back for his fastball Thursday night and, set the Oakland A's down on three hits in 6 2-3 innings of relief work. Pattin, 2-3, scored his first victory since May 9 when the Royals tallied five runs in the fourth inning for a 5-4 victory. "I just made up my mind,'"said Pattin, "that if I gave up anything, it was going to be off thehedter. This was a super onie to win.\ We've got to make up some ground against this club." The victory in the opener of a four-gahie series vaulted the Royals within 3'/^ games of the division-leading, A's, RVICC "HHmirttnitcf •.P.SOOMICN KILLV OUaWMK You cant improve oii the original.
