Bucs' Brett Does it All Time§ Herald, Carroll, la. Tuesday, May 28, 1974 By The Associated Press It looks as if the Pittsburgh Pirates may have another Babe Ruth on their hands. For you young fans. Babe Ruth was the leading home run hitter of all time before rtenry Aaron came along. But Ruth was also a pretty fair hurler before he went into the hitting business full time in 1922. He showed a 94-46 pitching record and a 2.28 ERA. Ken Brett, the left-handed pitching and hitting sensation, seems to pose a similarly wonderful '•problem" for the Pirates. In the first game of the Pirates' Memorial Day doubleheader sweep of the San Diego Padres Monday, lefty Brett pitched perfect baseball for eight innings and ended up with a two-hit. 6-0shutout. But the work of a pitcher who hits like Ken Brett is never done and his bat was called on to pinch hit in the second game. Brett boomed a two-run triple to spark a five-run seventh inning uprising and the Pirates went to beat the Padres in the nightcap 8-7. Klscwhere in the National League, the Chicago Cubs pounded the San Francisco Giants 12-4: the St. Louis Cardinals overpowered the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-2; the Atlanta Braves crushed the Philadelphia Phillies 9-1; the Cincinnati Reds beat the New York Mets 4-2. and the Houston Astros at Montreal Kxpos game was rained out. "Brett's something else. He had a heckuva day." said Richie Hebner. who blasted a. dramatic two-out, two-run homer in the ninth inning of the second game to rally the Pirates over the Padres. Reds 4, Mets 2 Cincinnati jumped on struggling Tom Seaver for six hits and four runs in the first two innings and Fred Norman checked the Mets on four hits. Cards 7, Dodgers 2 Joe Torre smacked a two run-homer and Reggie Smith and Ted Simmons added solo shots, powering the St. Louis over Los Angeles. Braves 9, Phillies 1 Phil Niekro. 6-3. tossed a five-hitter in pitching the Braves to their 10th victory in 12 games. He struck out seven Cubs 12, Giants 4 Pitcher Ken Frailing drove in three runs with a pair of singles to lead Chicago past San Francisco. Frailing. 3-4, who bested Giant ace Mike Caldwell. 7-2. pitched in and out of trouble all game, yielding 15 hits. American League results: Chicago 5. New York 3: Boston 3. Minnesota 2. 10 innings; Kansas City 9, Baltimore 1: Oakland 12. Detroit 2: Texas 6. Cleveland 0 and Milwaukee 2. California 0. 8 Double Play Ball Helps Dal Canton Walton's Lucrative Signing to be Felt Today NEW YORK (AP) - The impact of Bill Walton's lucrative, far-ranging contract with the Portland Trail Blazers was to be felt today by the other National Basketball Association teams as they began the job of trying to sign their collegiate draft choices. The Trail Blazers, the team with the worst record in the NBA's Western Conference last season, gained the shot at the league's No. 1 draft selection in a coin flip with the Philadelphia 76ers. the club with the worst record in the Eastern Conference. Then, even before today's draft, the ambitious Trail Blazers went out and signed Walton to a five-year contract estimated between $2 million and $3 million. Money, however, was not the only factor in Walton's signing with Portland. "There were clauses we were capable of getting for Bill that perhaps we couldn't get for another plaver." said Sam Gilbert. Walton's business adviser. These included Walton's approval of any trade to another the people Ore people PRICE TIRE CLEARANCE 650x13 775x14 825x14 560x15 815x15 600x13 CHAMPION BUCK 19 95 Plus Fed.

The adviser said that the 6- foot-11. 220-pound Walton also made a number of other requests, but declined to discuss them. No player picked in today's draft had the reputation or the credentials of the UCLA center. Walton was the Associated Press' College Player of the year as a sophomore and a junior, and was runner-up as a senior to David Thompson of North Carolina State. He led UCLA to its sixth and seventh consecutive NCAA championships in 1972 and 1973 and to third place in this year's tourney. He set an NCAA career field goal shooting mark with a .651 percentage, breaking the mark of .639, held by Lew Alcindor. now Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, formerly of UCLA, and he bettered Alcindor's school rebounding record with a total of 1.370. But many players selected in the 10 rounds of drafting by the 18 NBA clubs had outstanding collegiate careers and likely would demand tremendous contracts. Of the group, the top players also were taken by the American Basketball Association in its recent draft—and would be able to pit one league against the other as a lever in contract negotiations. Among those expected to go high in the NBA draft were Ail-Americans Marvin Barnes of Providence. John Shumate of Notre Dame and Keith Wilkes of UCLA. Also. 7-foot-4 Tom Burleson of North Carolina State. Len Elmore and Tom McMillen of Maryland. Campy Russell of Michigan. Tom Henderson of Hawaii. Brian Winters of South Carolina.

Coach Quits Bep Guidolin resigned as coach of the National Hockey League's Boston Bruins after the team management was unwilling to meet his demands of a five-year contract. By The Associated Press Bruce Dal Canton has two "out" pitches in his repertoire—the knuckleball and the double play ball. The knuckler he's been working on for some time. The double play ball he learned about from his manager Monday night. Faced with a tough ninth-inning situation, Jack McKeon advised his pitcher to "throw the double play ball to Brooks Robinson." He did and the Kansas City Royals took a 9-1 decision from the Baltimore Orioles. "It wasn't my best night with the knuckle ball." Dal Canton said after pitching a five-hitter in the nationally televised game. "I still don't have the consistency I'd like to have with it.'Subdued for the greater part of eight innings, the Orioles looked as if they would knock Dal Canton out of the game in the ninth with two singles and a hit batsman that loaded the bases with one out.

The jaunty McKeon then bounced out of the dugout for a conference with his pitcher. "I just came out here to get on national television, " McKeon said jokingly before giving Dal Canton the advice about the double play pitch. , In the other American League games, the Boston Red Sox nipped the Minnesota Twins 3-2 in 10 innings; the Chicago White Sox defeated the New York Yankees 5-3; the Oakland A's routed the Detroit Tigers 12-2; the Texas Rangers blanked the Cleveland Indians 6-0 and the Milwaukee Brewers shut out the California Angels 2-0.
