Big Crowd Spurs A's, 5-4 Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, June 10, 1974 By The Associated Press When you're a winner, as the Oakland A's, the shrieking of the "enemy" crowd can sound like music. But when you're a loser, it can drive you bats. And, so, ignoring the hollering of a "Jacket Day" throng of 46,812 in Milwaukee, the A's ran up a quick lead Sunday and held on to beat the Brewers 5-4. In Detroit, though, a screaming "Bat Day" crowd of 42,491 shook up a pair of California outfielders and helped the Tigers to defeat the nosediving Angels 5-3. In Sunday's other American League games, the New York Yankees edged Minnesota 4-3, Texas trimmed Baltimore 3-2, Boston belted Chicago 10-6 and Cleveland beat Kansas City 8-6. Deron Johnson, who hit a homer for Oakland, said the Brewers' crowd was "great. These are real baseball fans. It's just fun playing baseball in front of all these people. I like a big crowd It makes you a little more keyed up." Sal Bando slugged a two-run homer to go with Johnson's solo shot that enabled Oakland to build a 5-1 lead in the fifth inning. Pedro Garcia homered for Milwaukee. Tigers 5, Angels 3 A three-run, noise-aided fourth inning against Nolan Ryan, capped by a monstrous double by Willie Morton, carried Detroit past California, which dropped its 10th game in the last 13. With the score tied 2-2. Mickey Stanley started the Tigers' big rally with a double. Then the crowd took over. Gary Sutherland hit a liner to right-center field. Either center fielder Mickey Rivers or Lee Stanton, coming over from right, could have caught it. But they couldn't hear each other calling for it. Afraid of colliding, they each pulled up short and the ball fell for a hit. Yanks 4, Twins 3 Graig Nettles hit a sixth-inning homer for the Yanks, then capped a three-run ninth with a single that kept the Twins last in the West. Rangers 3, Orioles 4 Jim Fregosi drove in two Texas runs, one of them with a tie-breaking homer in the eighth inning, to beat Baltimore. Red Sox 10, White Sox 6 Bob Montgomery drove in three runs to pace the assault by the Red Sox. who cut loose for four runs in the first inning and five more in the sixth. Indians 8, Royals 6 Oscar Gamble and Dave Duncan hit homers in Cleveland's victory over the Royals. Gamble's seventh of the season came in the fifth inning and Duncan's eighth came in the seventh inning after George Hendrick's double. The "Big Red Machine" is rolling . . . but not fast enough to catch the Los Angeles Dodgers. Even though the buoyant Cincinnati Reds buried the Philadelphia Phillies 14-7 Sunday for their 12th victory in 15 games, there was no reason for the Dodgers to hit the panic button. They still hold a juicy, eight- game lead in the National League West race, you see. "I honestly feel we will win more than 90 games, even after a bad start," said Cincinnati Manager Sparky Anderson. "The trouble is. I don't know if it will be enough to catch the Dodgers." While the Reds have been on a streak, the front-running Dodgers have been, too. Despite winning 80 per cent of their games in the past few weeks, the Reds have gained only one game on Los Angeles. In the other National League games, the Pittsburgh Pirates bombed the San Francisco Giants 14-1; the Houston Astros routed the New York Mets ll-l; the Dodgers nipped the Chicago Cubs 4-3; the San Diego Padres downed the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5 and the Atlanta Braves beat the Montreal Expos 3-2 in the first game of a doubleheader before losing the second 7-3. Johnny Bench ignited a seven-run seventh with a two-run homer, helping the Reds blitz the Phillies. "This is a great park to do some fun things in," said Bench, who has hit nine career home runs at Philadelphia's Veterans Stadium. Pirates 14, Giants 1 Willie Stargell belted two home runs—one his ninth career grand slam—and knocked in six runs, and Richie Zisk hit for the cycle and drove in five to lead Pittsburgh over San Francisco. Astros 11, Mets 1 Tommy Helms and Doug Rader knocked in a pair of runs and Tom Griffin scattered eight New York hits, leading Houston past the Mets. Dodgers 4, Cubs 3 Pine h-hitter Von Joshua drove in the winning run with a one-out single in the ninth, lifting Los Angeles over Chicago. Braves 3-3, Expos 2-7 Pitcher Phil Niekro scored one run and drove in another to lead Atlanta to a first-game victory over Montreal. Bob Bailey slugged a two-run single and Ron Fairly belted a solo home run to help Montreal win the second game. a A Tired Green Takes Top Prize I get whipped7 fine.

I WOO t .400 Hitters Dominate College All-American Team PHILADELPHIA (AP) Hubert Green admits that he is mentally tired—that the week-in, week-out grind of golf is getting to him. After pocketing $30,000 for winning the $150,000 Philadelphia Golf Classic Sunday with a 17-under-par 271, Green talked more enthusiastically about a two-week vacation than this week's U.S. Open Championship at Winged Foot Country Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y. "I haven't missed a tournament in months," said Green, who compiled rounds of 70-6766-68 for his third tour victory of the year. "But the grind gets to you." What about the Open, the most prestigious title in golf? "I'd like to win it, but I enjoyed winning here, " he said, waving toward the 6,708-yard Whitemarsh Valley Country Club course he had just wrecked. "I like to do well, and the way I've played the last few weeks is nothing to turn my face down about." "I'll get in my car and drive to New York and play hard. If to take two weeks off. I won play again until the Milwaukee Open." Green, 27, who previously this year won the Bob Hope Desert Classic and the Greater Jacksonville Open, boosted his 1974 earnings to $156,165, second only to top money-winner Johnny Miller. He shattered the 72-hole tournament record at Whitemarsh by three strokes. Billy Casper and Tom Weiskopf each had won here with 274s. Green finished four strokes ahead of Hale Irwin, who carded 69-72-68-66-275 and earned $17,100. Miller and Tom Jenkins tied for third at 277 and picked up checks for $8,850 each. Miller, the defending champion in the U.S. Open and a five-time tour winner, boosted his bankroll to $203,356. Weiskopf was fifth at 279, Mike Hill sixth with 280 and Joe Inman seventh at 281. Green birdied three of the first seven holes Sunday. OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Three .400 hitters are among 11 players named Saturday to the university division first All-American baseball team.

Hole-in-Ones For years, the Rock Hill Country Club at Rock Hill, S.C., tried to give away a new car for a hole-in-one during its annual member-guest golf tournament. "Nobody ever came close," said club pro Bill Petty. So this year tournament officials decided to eliminate the prize. There was not only one, but two hole-in-ones recorded over the weekend.
