West Has 6-Game Weekend ; Bay town Sun •;• SPORTS! - Lack Of Praise Leo Durocher LeveJs An Attack On Writers CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago Cubs are winging with a T/i game lead In the National League's East Division but Manager Leo Durocher is on the warpath because of faint praise. "1 don't care what this club does," Durocher told The Associated Press Sunday, "our writers just don't want to give the players any credit. I can't understand it. Ron Santo triples off the center field wall in the ninth inning and then scores to give us a 3-2 win Saturday and here's a paper which says it was a windblown pop up. "When Ken Holt/.man threw three straight shutouts, you know what they were writing about? I'll tell you. They were writing about the great amount of runs the clubs scores every- fime Kenny pitches." ; Durocher was really geared up now and continued: "If a club is not hustling, not trying, then rip the players. But when a team is doing what this club is doing, the players deserve some praise. "How in the hell did we get where we are? We're 7W games in front. Are any of these other so-called great clubs who are getting the great press that far ahead? "Now I'm not taking anything away from Mickey Mantle but through the years all I read about was the great handicap under which Mantle was playing. Fine, but what about our Glenn Beckert? "Here's a kid who nearly ha*his back broken by Mike Shannon in St. Louis. What happens? He missed one game. Again, all he did was miss one game. "Now he's out there playing with a bum leg. Funny, I haven't been reading anything about Beckert let alone playing under a handicap. There are half a dozen other players like him on this club. They're putting out 110 per cent. But still, all they gel is faint praise. "When I was in New York, there was a writer that had two stories—one for when we won and one for when we lost. "If we won, I was never mentioned. When wo lost, my name was in the lead graph. I'm not sure, yet, but 1 think one of our writers is doing the same thing. "All I can say is that it's a helluva situation. Here's a club that was in the second division for 21 years." The West Little League had six games worth of action over the weekend in an effort to make-up some of the many rained-out games this season. In the first game, the Cubs used a four-run fourth inning to down the Chargers, 5-2. The Cubs got a run in the first inning, but the Chargers went ahead with two runs in the second, setting the stage for the winning fourth. Bill Pike was the winning pitcher for the Bubs, striking out eight, walking four and allowing .hree hits. Quin Lloyd took the loss for the Jhargers, striking an identical eight, walking five and giving up ive hits. In the second game, a three- run Pirate sixth inning fell short of the Yankees as the Yankees won, 5-3. The Yanks scored a run in the irst frame, then added two in he third and single tallies in the ifth and sixth innings. The 3 irates couldn't get on the coreboard until the three-run sixth. Steve Graves took the win for the Yanks and Mark Walker was .he loser for the Pirates. Graves .truck out two, walked four and. >ave up only one hit.

Jody Turner, the Sox hurler, struck out 12 men and gave up only three hits in going the distance, but his Sox teammates couldn't get Ihe go ahead run for the win. Jody Zorn was the Oriole hurler, and performed as successfully as Turner, and Oriole catcher Mike Davis got two of the three hits off Turner.

(AP) Dangerous Dave Hill, the Peck's bad boy of pro golf, headed home to Jackson, Mich., today, the biggest check of his career in his pocket and a doctor bill awaiting him. "I started the year at 165 pounds," Hill said Sunday after winning the $30,000 top prize in the Memphis Open Golf Tournament. "Now I weigh 140. I'm going to see a doctor and find out why. "I don't have any idea what's causing it, but I almost have to pin my pants to my shorts to keep them from falling down when 1 swing. "I'm not worried about it. I never worry about anything— except maybe gelling suspended by the PGA." And that's happened, loo. He's an outspoken, pull-no- punches sort of character, this darkly-handsome guy who bears a strong resemblence lo the late James Dean, the movie actor. His blunt pronouncements have put him in occasional trouble with the PGA, including one- week suspension this year. "I've been suspended, all together, two months and one week," he said. "I keep a separate account of it." Hill, in his I2th year on the tour, barged out of the pack with a five-under-par 65, overhauled third-round leaders Lee Elder and Bert Yancey and finished with a 72-hole total of 265 15 under-par for the 6,485-yard *** Dave Hill IJ0.009 I-ee Elder, m.OOO.

The final two games were devoted to minor league action, as the Falcons downed the Heavers, 9-8, and the Steers blasted the Hornets, 14-1. It took a three-run sixth inning for the Falcons to down the Beavers, as James Keigley took the win and Randy Huntley was the losing hurler. Gregory Ramirez was the leading Falcon batsman with two hits in three at-bats. A nine-run first inning sparked the 14-1 Steer win, vvilh the game being called in the third because of the 10-run rule. Mike Harris allowed only one Hornet hit and struck out seven to take the win, and the Hornets used three pitchers to no avail, with Cam Shawell getting the loss. - In National League Pittsburgh Clubs Astros, 14-7 PITTSBURGH (AP) — A seven-run sixth inning was the biggest insult Sunday as the Pittsburgh Pirates lowered the Houston Astros' orbit by a 14-7 count. Rookie Richie Hebner and Al Oliver each drove in three runs. Five walks and two errors keyed the sixth-inning outburst. Houston's Jim Wynn cracked his 14th homer with one on in the seventh. Hebner snapped a 2-2 tie with a two-run double in the second inning and drew a bases-loaded walk in the big sixth. *** By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer Baseball's grand Canadian caper is in danger of deteriorating into a frantic footrace between Gene Mauch and his dark past. Mauch's Montreal Expos bowed to San Diego 5-2 Sunday, extending their losing streak to 16 games—one short of the record for major league expansion teams. The New York Mets lost 17 in a row in 1962, their first National League season. The longest downhill slide in the modern era, however, was the Philadelphia Phillies' 23-game streak the previous year. Their manager was Gene Mauch. Mauch also suffered through a 10-game September tailspin that cost his 1964 Phillies a pennant. And in 1944, the year he broke into the majors as an 18-year- old shortstop with Brooklyn, the Dodgers reeled through a 16- game losing streak. Elsewhere Sunday, St. Louis snapped Cincinnati's winning string at nine games by drubbing the Reds 11-3; the Chicago Cubs flattened Atlanta 13-4 de- delphia and were seven games behind Chicago's East Division leaders—at 11-7—v^hen the bottom fell out. The Padres dropped seven in a row last month and Kansas City and Seattle, the American League newcomers, have had losing strings of five and four games, respectively. But the Expos' streak couples them with such legendary NL losers as the 1944 Dodgers, the Boston Braves of 1907 and 1911 and three pre-1900 clubs—Cleveland, Detroit, and Troy, N.Y.— all of whom lost 16 in succession. Little Vic Davalillo, acquired by St. Louis Saturday in a waiver deal with California, hit a three-run homer in his first timej at bat in the Nat ion a! League, climaxing the Cardinals' assault against seven Cincinnati pitchers. Davalillo, who came into the game as a pinch runner, connected in a five-run seventh-inning burst that assured right- hander Nelson Briles' third victory. Lou Brock also homered for the cards while Lee May and Johnny Bench hit homers for the Reds. At Chicago, Randy Hundley's three-run homer capped a six- run third inning uprising that swept the Cubs to their fourth straight triumph. Billy Williams and Jim Hickman added Chicago homers and Atlanta's Aaron slammed the 521st of his career, tying Ted Williams . for fifth place on the all-time list. Ron Swoboda drew a bases- loaded walk—the fourth issued by Joe Gibbon in the ninth—to send the Mets past San Francisco for their fourth victory in a row. Willie McCovey poled his 16th homer—and fifth in six games—for the Giants. The Dodgers buried Philadelphia under a 15-hit attack and climbed within one-half game of first-place Atlanta in the West. Andy Kosco, Bill Sudakis, Tom Haller and pitcher Don Sutton delivered two Los Angeles runs apiece. The Phil's Richie Allen hit his fifth homer in five consecutive games. In American League Sox' Tony C. Is Red Hot spite Hank a milestone Aaron; the homer by New York Mets nipped San Francisco 5-4; Los Angeles smashed Philadelphia 12-4. Rookie Nate Colbert hit his ninth and 10th homers and veteran Johnny Podres picked up his fifth pitching victory as San Diego's expansionists completed a three-game sweep over the sinking Expos. It was the 10th loss at home for the Expos during their spin, which began on May 13 with a 10-3 collapse against Houston at Montreal. They won their season opener against the Mels. were buoyed by Bill Stoneman's April 17 no-hitter against Phila By MIKE RECHT Associated Press Sports Writer Tony Conigliaro received a clean bill of health from his doctor during the weekend and he has opposing pitchers paying for it. The comeback kid of Boston continued his very unusual recovery from the near blinding eye injury he suffered in 1967 by hammering a single, two doubles and his 10th home run Sunday, helping the Red Sox beat Minnesota 5-2. "I guess you can say I'm hitting the ball as good as ever," he said after which raised his his perfect day average 17 points to .288. "I think I'm home at last." Dr. Charles D.J. Regan, who treated Conigliaro, thought so Friday when he said the injury was not rare but the degree of recovery was very unusual, adding that Conigliaro's vision in the injured eye "is back to almost 20-20, which is normal." The pitchers would agree. Conigliaro was not the only one having a healthy day at the plate. Seattle overcame Detroit 8-7, Washington ruined the Chicago White Sox 9-2, the New York Yankees outlasted Kansas ,City 8-5, Baltimore trimmed California 4-3 in 11 innings and Oakland mauled Cleveland ll-l in other American League action. Conigliaro's comeback has been a heart-warming and im- portant accomplishment for the Red Sox after his career appeared ended as he sat out the 1968 season following the bean- ing which caused the eye injury. The 24-year-old slugger started the season hitting well, but caused some worry several weeks ago when he went into a tailspin. However, he has hit five homers in his last nine games and since the doctor's report, he has two singles, two doubles and two homers in 11 at bats, driving in six runs for the club lead with 37. Conigliaro doubled home a run in the third inning and his solo homer in the fifth gave the Red Sox a decisive 3-0 spread. Rico Petrocelli, who drove in earlier run with a fielder's choice, completed Boston's scoring with his 15th homer in the seventh with a man on. Ray Gulp, the league's first nine-game winner, protected the runs until the eighth when Sparky Lyle saved the victory. Seattle easily kept intact its record of having never been shut out with homers by Tommy Harper, Don Mincher, Steve Whitaker and Wayne Comer for seven runs before Harper singled in the tie-breakin run in the eighth to end Detroit's four- game winning streak. Frank Howard hit his 16th homer and a two-run double and Ken McMullen and Brant Alyea added homers as Washington made it easy for Barry Moore, 4-1, who breezed in with a six-hitter. The Yankees fell behind 5-1, but finally caught up on Joe Pepitone's two-run homer, his 14th, in the fifth inning. Doubles by Jimmie Hall, Roy White, John Ellis and Jim Lyttle for three runs broke the deadlock in HORSEPLAY has its place in the major leagues when things get a little damp, and Cincinnati Reds' pitcher George Culver gets in on the monkey-business with a wet slide on the rain soaked St. Louis field before game time.

Boog Powell's fourth homer in six games gave Baltimore a tie in the ninth and Paul Blair wrapped up the victory with a homer in the llth. Five Orioles' relievers—Dave Leonhard, Dick Hall, Eddie Watt, Pete Richer! and Jim Palmer—blanked the Angels on two hits for nine innings. Oakland spotted Cleveland a run and then scored seven times in the fourth inning. The first five hitters in the inning singled for two runs, Tommy Reynolds singled in two more, another pair scored on wild pitches and the last on error. Reggie Jackson added three more runs with his 16th homer in the seventh.

SHIXER, TEXAS BAY TICK OI»T. •W-UtO Majestic Prince Is Belmont Favorite By ED SCHUYLEK JK. Associated Press Sports Writer As if the distance of l',i miles is not enough of an obstacle in his bid to win the Belmont Stakes and the Triple Crown, Majestic Prince must now contend with Elliott Burch's special Belmont weapon. The weapon works like this— shoot a horse into the Metropolitan Handicap and then have him explode with a victory in the Belmont. It's worked twice before, and Burch hopes that Arts and Letters' winning performance in the $116,500 Metropolitan Memorial Day will lead to a victory blast next Saturday when the Rokeby Stable colt will hook up with unbeaten Majestic Prince in the Belmont. "I am very satisfied with his ettort," Burch said after Arts and letters, $5, beat Nodouble by 2',z lengths, with Locust Hill Farm's Promise third. The win- ner, only 3-ycar-old in the field of 11, carried a feathery 111 pounds including Jean Cruguet over the mile in 1:34. "1 really wanted to give him confidence," said Burch. "He's been running second, and I felt that going into the Belmont off a victory would help him." Confidence could be a big factor for Arts and Letters against Majestic Prince in the Belmont. The Prince boat him by a neck in the Kentucky Derby and then edged him by a head in the Preakness Stakes. In 1959, Burch sent out Sword Dancer lo win the Metropolitan and the Dancer came back to win the Belmont. In 1964, Burch saddled Quadrangle for a second in the Metropolitan and that colt went on to win the Belmont. Pelcian Stable's Al Hattab moved into the Belmont picture Friday and Calumet Farm's Best Turn all but dropped out.
