Two Game Win Streak for Bucs Times Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, April 25, 1974 By The Associated Press It's not exactly what you'd call a winning streak . . . but then, two in a row is better than nothing at all. The Pittsburgh Pirates, preseason picks to win the National League's East Division flag, have looked like anything but winners thus far this season. In fact, it took them 14 games before they could put victories back to back. They finally did it Wednesday night, using an old, reliable method . . . Pirate Power! Richie Hebner, Willie Stargell and Manny Sanguillen slugged the home runs that boosted the Bucs to a 5-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves . . . and out of the basement for the first time this year. In Wednesday's other National League games, Cincinnati edged the Chicago Cubs 1-0, Houston swamped St. Louis 9-4, Los Angeles defeated Philadelphia 6-1 and San Diego beat the New York Mets 4-3. Montreal's game at San Francisco was rained out. "Two in a row! Wow! That's really a streak, isn't it?" Hebner said sarcastically after the victory. Hebner hit a first-inning solo shot, Stargell made it 3-0 in the fifth, the Braves got two runs in the sixth, one of them on Dusty Baker's homer, but Sanguillen wrapped it up in the eighth with a two-run clout. Reds 1, Cubs 0 George Foster drew a bases- loaded, two-out walk from Bill Bonham in the bottom of the ninth inning to force home the only Cincinnati run — the one that beat Chicago. Dave Concepcion doubled. Cesar Geronimo drew an intentional walk. Terry Crowley batted for winner Jack Billing- ham and forced Concepcion at third. Pete Rose popped up, then Joe Morgan singled to load the bases and bring Foster to the plate. The count went to 3-0, Bonham got a strike, then came the back-breaker. Astros 9, Cards 4 Pitcher Dave Roberts slugged a two-run homer and Tommy Helms drove in four runs in the Astros' rout. Dodgers 6, Phillies 1 Jim Wynn drove in two runs with a single and a homer and Willie Crawford tripled for two runs to back Don Sutton's seven-hit pitching for Los Angeles. Padres 4, Mets 3 Nate Colbert slugged a two- run homer in the first inning, then broke a tie with a one-out, bases-loaded grounder in the ninth for the Padres, dumping the Mets into the East Division basement. In Wednesday's American League games it was Oakland 9, Cleveland 2; New York 4, Kansas City 3; Baltimore 4, California 3; Detroit 8, Minnesota 4; Texas 3, Boston 1, and Chicago 7, Milwaukee 2. The old gag used to go something like this: Washington . . . first in war, first in peace and last in the American League. Would you believe first in the American League? Oh, it's not really the Washington Senators; it's the Texas Rangers. And it's not really the entire American League, just the AL West. And the lead is only a tiny one-half game over the world champion Oakland A's. But there is the transplanted franchise in first place today, podnuh, thanks to Wednesday night's 3-1 triumph over the Boston Red Sox ... the first time the club has been in 12 Records in Doubt at Drake DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Twelve major records will be on the "doubtful list" when the 65th Drake Relays moves into its crowded final two days Friday and Saturday. "And I would say that at least seven other records are within reach of our field, "said relays director Bob Ehrhart. Probable records are forecast, Ehrhart noted, when contestants have tied or broken Drake Relays records in previous competition or "have the personnel to shatter the marks. "As always, weather will be a factor," said Ehrhart! "But we expect some fine performances, especially in the special events with the likes of Rick Wohlhuter, Al Feuerbach, Mike Boit, Larrance Jones and Dwight Stones." The National Weather Service has forecast fair weather for Friday and Saturday, with a chance of rain. Temperatures should be in the upper 60s and low 70s. Twenty finals are on Friday's agenda, including four special events that will feature a trio of world record-holders led by shot putter Al Feuerbach, from the tiny Iowa community of If You Need A Building . . . . - . - * • x * •/ / ' .-"'' ^" -__ • Commercial CHIEF!!?? • Industrial • Farm You'll Be Pleasantly Surprised When You Get A Prie« or a Piart From BAUMHOVER • Virgil J.

The running highlight of the first day should be the special h a 1 f-mile featuring world record-holder Wohlhute^. last year's outstanding performer— Boit, Skip Kent. Tommy Fulton and Hailu Ebba. "Wohlhuter and Boit aren't household words in track yet, but they rank as two of the brightest young stars on the horizon," said Ehrhart. Boit, the multi-talented Kenyan who runs for Eastern New Mexico, edged Wohlhuter by two-tenths of a second in 1:47.1 last year, but a month later Wohlhuter shattered Jim Ryun's long-standing world mark with a 1:44.6. The supporting cast for the 880 also has some strong credentials. Kent is an ex-national collegiate champion from Wisconsin with a best of 1:46.3. Fulton, former Texas Southern standout, and Ebba of Oregon State each have run 1:48.1. < Along with the special shot put and 880, records appear possible in the special 100, spe- A7D«y Ctfltomta Vacation ForT "° l Kleenite® 6000 Mile Spin-On Oil Filters for on Oil choi.., • .

Feuerbach, the unorthodox darling of the track world a year ago, will be out to capture the No. 1 title he lost undisputed possession of first place in either Washington or Texas uniforms since 1948, according to publicist Burt Hawkins. Elsewhere, New York's Graig Nettles tied the AL record for most April homers by swatting his 10th in the Yankees' 4-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals, the Chicago White Sox whipped the Milwaukee Brewers 7-2, the Baltimore Orioles edged the California Angels 4-3, the Detroit Tigers downed the Minnesota Twins 8-4 and Oakland trounced the Cleveland Indians 9-2. The Rangers used a little luck to win Wednesday night's contest. Lenny Randle's catchable pop fly in the seventh inning became a tie-breaking two-run double when Boston left fielder Carl "Alphonse" Yastrzemski and center fielder J u a n earlier this season to arch rival George Woods. Feuerbach holds the listed world record of 71 feet, 7 inches, but Woods heaved the 16-pound iron ball 72-2 :i /.'t indoors early in February to take the "best ever" lead. World records can only be set outdoors. The burly Feuerbach readily admits he wants "his record" back, and feels he is in top condition. "Gaston" Beniquez couldn't decide who should catch it. Yankees 4, Royals 3 Nettles' 10th home run in 17 games was the talk of New York but it was Roy White's double following a walk to Jim Mason in the seventh inning that produced the winning run. Thurman Munson hit a two-run homer for the winners. White Sox7, Brewers? Eddie Leon, hitless in 12 previous at-bats, singled in what turned out to be the winning run with his first hit of the season. Orioles 4, Angels 3 Don Baylor doubled home the eventual winning run in the eighth inning and reliever Bob Reynolds choked off a California uprising in the ninth to save the triumph for DaveMcNally. Tigers 8, Twins 4 Sports Glances Carroll Track Carroll will be sending six men to the Drake Relays in Des Moines Friday and Saturday. On Friday, Pete Marz will compete in the shot, while Tim Fredrickson will be in the high jump field. On Saturday morning, Ted Nam. Jeff Petersen, Mike Cattermole and Rick Beyer will be in the 440 yard relay preliminaries. Kuemper Track Kuemper will have 10 boys competing in the Drake Relays. In the individual events, Rick Friedman will be in the high jump, Randy Diers in the discus, Tom Nurse in the pole vault and Bob Friedman in the mile run. As of Thursday, however, it was doubtful if Bob Friedman could participate in the mile because of a hip injury. Mark Hermsen, Bill Neumayer, Russ Rupiper and Craig Dentlinger will be running in the medley relay prelims and John Heithoff, Rupiper, Hermsen, Tony Nockles and Neumayer will compete in the 440 yard relay prelims. Jr. High Girls Don Oleson's Carroll Junior High girls track team finished fifth in the Little Rockette Relays at Churdan Wednesday night with 32 points. Prairie of Cowrie won the meet with 65 points. The Tigerettes' only first-place came in the 880 yard relay. That team included Holly Evans, Joni Becker, Cindy Feldt and Jean Gret ten berg. Picking up seconds were Lori Harmening in the 440; Lisa Fredrickson in the Softball throw and Ann Mankin a tie in the 660 yard run. Third-places went to the 440 yard relay team of Evans, Feldt, Harmening and Grettenberg and another tie for Mankin, this time in the 100 yard dash. The 440 yard relay team of Barb Towers, Toni Gilbert, Shelley Behn and Feldt took fourth and Penny Gordin tied for fourth in the five flight hurdles/ Fifth-places went to Deb Cattermole in the shot put: Lauri Teague in the 220; Evans in the 60 yard dash and the mile relay unit of Lori Wilkens, Teri Wilson, Michele Riesberg and Becker.

The Celtics advanced to the NBA playoff final for the first time since they won the title five years ago by defeating the New York Knicks 105-94 Wednesday night, taking the best-of-7 Eastern Conference series 4-1. Now they move into a showdown with the mighty Milwaukee Bucks, led by Kareern Abdul-Jabbar. The first two games in the best-of-7 series will be played in Milwaukee Sunday afternoon and Tuesday night. Games No. 3 and 4 are scheduled for Boston May 3 and 5. "It means a lot to beat the Knicks, but it is just another step along the way," Boston captain John Havlicek said. "Against the Bucks we're going to have to be on the run constantly. They like to set up their plays. As for Jabbar, maybe we'll have to let him get his points and try to shut off the others from scoring." Havlicek, who played on six NBA championships in Boston during the heyday 1960s, was at his best against the Knicks. The Celtics thus avenged their elimination in the same playoff series last year when their team leader was injured. Hondo scored 33 points in the windup, averaging about 30 in the five games. Tommy Heinsohn, who helped build the Boston dynasty as a player, is leading the Celtics as coach into the NBA finals for the first time. The Knicks threatened to extend the series with Boston, taking a 52-45 halftime lead. However, the Celtics shook off foul trouble with a third-period spurt, capped by two three-point plays by big Dave Cowens for an 80-79 advantage. Then Havlicek and Cowens took complete charge in the fourth period and the Celtics exploded for an easy triumph.
