Willie Davis, Pete Rose Reach 2,000 Mark By FRED McMANE UPI Sports Writer Willie Davis and Pete Rose Joined baseball's 2,000-hit club Tuesday night, but Rose has a much more exclusive club in mind for the future. Davis, a 33-ycar-old center- fielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers, made his 2,000th career hit a big one as he stroked a two-run homer in the sixth inning to help the Dodgers down the Atlanta Braves, 3-0. "I was kind of planning on a homer," said Davis, now in his 14th season with the Dodgers. "People won't believe it, but I didn't want the 2,000th hit to be a fluke. A hit is a hit, but a hit like this leaves no doubt," Davis' two-run homer and a run-scoring single by Ron Coy in the fourth inning helped the Dodgers to their fourth win in a row and ninth in the last 12 games. Tommy John, with relief help from Pete Rlchcrt, went seven innings to register his sixth victory in nine decisions. Rose, a 31-year-old outfielder for the Cincinnati Reds, joined tho select circle with three singles and a double in five at bats as he helped the Reds to a 4-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants. Rose, who finished the night with 2,001. hits, has set 3,000 career hits as one of liis goals—a plateau which has 1 been reached (by only 1 1 players in baseball history. "When I 'came up I never even thought of getting 1,000 hits let alone 2,000," said Rose, now in his 11th season, "but now I'm thinking about 3,000. My goal now is to bat .300 for 10 years in a row and get 3,000 hits." Rose's hot bat helped Fred Norman to his second straight shutout since coming over to the Reds from the San Diego Padres last week. Norman allowed only three hits posting Register -Mail SPORTS Galesburg, 111,, Wednesday, June 20, 1973 Page 33 his third victory in 10 decisions.

Lee May, extending his hitting streak to 18 games, drove in four runs and Doug Radcr hit his seventh homer as the Astros handed the Padres their 10th straight loss. Jerry Reuss went eight innings to gain his eighth victory while Clay Kirby was tagged with his eighth loss. Mike Schmidt hit his first major league grand slam to spark the Phillies over the Mets. Schmidt's homer came in the fourth inning and tagged Harry Parker with his first loss of the season after five victories.

Mike Jorgensen drove in two runs with a pair of singles to help the Expos beat the Cardinals. Steve Renko allowed only three hits in seven innings to gain his sixth victory while Mike Marshall recorded his ninth save. Milt May's homer with one out in the last of the ninth gave tho Pirates a victory over Ihe Cubs and salvaged a split (d their doubleheader. Willie Star* gell hit his 19th homer of the season for Pittsburgh in the nightcap while Rick Monday and Randy Hundley connected for Chicago. Monday, who has 18 homers, also homered in the opener as the Cubs won behind Larry Gura. Gura also collected his first major league hit—an infield single—which drove in the final run of a four-run sixth inning. Richie Hebner homered for the Pirates in the first game. Milwaukee Is Surprise Of Baseball By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Editor NEW YORK (UPI) - Every time he tries to get a little fresh air, everywhere he goes, Del Crandall gets hit with the same thing. "Can you stay there?" "Can you keep it up?" "Did you ever dream in spring training that a thing like this could ever happen?" Del GrandaM smiles. It's very easy for him to do that now with his hiighnriding Milwaukee Brewers carrying on as if somebody should give them a saliva test. "Why wouldn't I dream of . something like this?" Ihe says "When I direaim, I try to dream of good things, not bad ones." Del Crandall has a good thing now and foe knows it. He has a ball club which finished dead Jasit three oif the past four years and nobody in the world, with the possible exception of the stockholders, would've batted an eye had they finished last again this year. It isn't likely they will. Memories Reviving •On the contrary, ~ the bewil dering Brewers aire beginning to revive World Series' memories in Milwaukee for the first time in 15 years. Thlat was the last time the city had a winner. The old Milwaukee Braves had some pretty gifted performers that year. Players like Lew Burdette, Eddie Mathews, Red Schoendienst, Bill Bruton, Joe Adcock and Crandall. They also had a pair of superstars like Hank Aaron and Warren Spaihn. The Brewers don't have any superstars though. George Scott thinks he is, but he has some way to -go yet. Mostly the Brewers are doing as well as they are with rookies and young fellows who aren't even hitting .250, players you've probably barely heard of like Gorman Thomas, Bob Coluccio, Darrell Porter and Tim Johnson. Davey May, who couldn't even win a regular job with Baltimore, is Milwaukee's most consistent performer, and rookie Pedro Garcia and catcher Homers Dot Cub-Pirate Doubleheader PITTSBURGH (UPI) - Milt May and Willie Stargell of the Pirates and Randy Hundley and Rick Monday of tho Cubs provided the power Tuesday night as Pittsburgh and Chicago split a twi-night doubleheader. May homered in the last of the ninth inning to give Pitts burgh a 4-3 victory in the sec ond game. Willie Stargell also hit his 19th home run of the season in that game. Randy Hundley homered for the Cubs, but Dave Giusti (4-4) held on for the Pirates' victory. In the first game, Larry Gura tossed an eight-hitler and the Cubs erupted for four runs in the sixth inning to snap a 1-1 tie to defeat the Pirates 6-3. Monday, who hit his 15tli homer, triggered the four-run outburst with a single. Glenn Bockert and Billy Wiiliams also singled before Jose Gardenul doubled and Gura singled—his first major league hit in 20 at bal.s. In tonight's final game of the series, Chicago's itiek Reuschel (8-4) will pitch against Pittsburgh's Nelson Briles (4-0). Ellie Rodriguez coime closest to being leaders. The pitching has been something else, averaging less than three runs a game this month. The Brewers' Seaver Jim Colborn, _ the 26 j year-old righthander discarded by the Cubs, is the Brewers' Tom Seaiver. He goes aigainst anyone in the league and figures he can lick them. Jerry Bell, another righthander, feels pretty much the sarnie way. Jim Slaton is forever challenging the hitters with his fast ball, and Bill Parsons is just beginning to make a contribution. In the bullpen, Frank Linzy has been reminiscent of what Sparky Lyle was for the Yankees last year. So turned on by the Brewers have the fans become in Milwaukee lately, that 22,796 of them showed up the other evening for a Monday night contest with the Red Sox despite the fact a tornado alert had been up until two hours before game time. Colborn pitched a six-hitter in that one for his ninth wan and by the ninth inning, all the fans were yelling "We're No. 1! We're No. 1!" This is third baseman Don Money's first year dn Milwaukee. He came to the Brewers this past winter from Philadelphia and isn't too used to such a reaction from the 'fans. "It gets you goose pimply out there with all those fans yelling like that," he says. All the excitement is getting a little to Del Crandall also. "I can hardly wait to go out and see the club play," he says. He means it, too. Club Shows Enthusiasm "I don't think I've ever been associated with a club that has shown more raw, sincere enthusiasm," he says. Can he be a little more specific? "Well, yes," says the Brewers' manager. "The man's name is Joe Lahoud. Here's a guy 26 years old who believes he can play regularly and wants to play regularly. He has come to me and said 'if I can't play regularly, ploage try to make a deal for me.' It is not an unreasonable request, and he made it a couple of times to me, but never in a malicious, nasty way. "Okay, in Monday night's game with the Red Sox, they bring in a lefthander (Rogelio Moret) in the third inning, and I make a change, putting Thomas in right field in place of Lahoud. Lahoud goes up to the clubhouse, changes his sweat shirt, comes back down to the bench and roots louder than anybody else. To me, that is significant. Here's a fellow who'll give anything to play regularly, but you can see how he feels about the ball club." How about Del Crandall? When his manager would take him out of a ball game, and he went back into the clubhouse to change his sweat shirt, would he come back to the bench? "Not always," he confesses. "Sometimes I'd just wait in'the clubhouse." Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. Major League Standings National League East w. I. pet. g.b.

"Who," asked the Oakland A's centerfielder, "is Bobby Thomson?" The 23-year old Oakland A's centerfielder, who was traded to Cleveland last March, is unlikely ever to achieve the fame of the man who hit the most dramatic home run in baseball history, but Tuesday night he joined a rather select group of about 100 players when he hit three homers in leading the Indians to an 8-7 victory over the Detroit Tigers. Hendrick had two chances to become the 10th player to hit four homers in one game but had to settle for a walk and a game-winning, ninth-inning single. It developed that Hendrick was even less impressed and communicative with his perfor mance than when Anderson compared him to Thomson. "I don't have anything to say to you guys," he snapped when reporters gathered around him in the Cleveland clubhouse Then he turned, dressed and left the clubhouse without another word. The Boston Red Sox defeated the Milwaukee Brewers, 8-4 and 4-1, in 11 innings, the A's beat the Kansas City Royals, 11-6, the New York Yankees shaded the Baltimore Orioles, 5-4, the California Angels topped the Chicago White Sox, 3-1, and the Minnesota Twins whipped the Texas Rangers, 7-3, in other American League games. National League scores were Pittsburgh over Chicago, 4-3, after a 6-3 loss, Philadelphia 6 New York 1, Montreal 3 St. Louis 1, Houston 7 San Diego 3, Los Angeles 3 Atlanta 0 and Cincinnati 4 San Francisco 0. Hendrick, who'll probably find himself being called the "Duane Thomas of baseball," hit solo homers in the first, fourth and sixth innings. He walked in the eighth and then delivered 'his game^winning single with two out in the ninth. A single by John Brohamer, a sacrifice, a walk and an outfield fly set the stage for Hendrick's single which enabled the Indians to break a six- game losing streak. The Indians had tied the score on John Ellis' two-run eighth inning homer following the walk to Hendrick. The three homers raised Hendrick's season total to 13. Charlie Spikes also homered for Cleveland while Norm Cash and Dick McAuliffe connected for De troit. Throwing errors by Frank Linzy and Tim Johnson enabled the Red Sox to score the tie breaking runs in the ninth inning of the Boston-Milwaukee game and Carlton Fisk's two- run homer capped the rally Pro Players Will Boycott Wimbledon Championships Palmer Signed CHICAGO (UPI) - Bob Palmer, a 17-year-old catcher from Corona Del Mar (Calif.) High School, Tuesday signed •willi the Chicago White Sox, who .selected him in the third round of the recent major league player draft. LONDON (UPI) - The world's top professional tennis players voted to boycott the Wimbledon championships early today in protest against the suspension of Yugoslavia's Nikki Pilic. Tennis sources said up to 70 of the world's top tennis stars, including 15 out of the 16 meg seeded at Wimbledon, may join in the boycott of the tournament which starts next Monday. The decision was reached in a three-hour emergency meeting of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) executive committee after Pilic failed in a legal bid to have the ban committee said seven voted for the boycott, one against and two abstained. "We have fullest confidence in our cause," ATP President Cliff Drysdale of South Africa said. "We deeply regret this confrontation came in Wimbledon fortnight, but we had little choice." Pilic was barred from playing at Wimlbledon and other tournaments until June 30 by the International Lawn Tennis Federation for declining to play for the Yugoslav Davis- Cup team. Pilic Tuesday sought an injunction against ihe ILTF action, but was turned down by a British high court, which ruled the suspension was not a breach oil' justice. Drysdale said the only way to end the boycott would be to lift the ban on Pilic. "This is the last tournament in the world the players want to withdraw from, but we feel that Wimbledon has been used by the ILTF," he said. Others on the committee were Jack Kramer, Jim McManus, Ismael El Shafei, Arthur Ashe, Mark Cox, John Barrett, Stan Smith, Jaime Fillol and Pilic. Ken Rosewall, John Newcombe, Cliff Richey and Terry Ryan attended as guests. Before the meeting, Drysdale said about 75 players belonging to the nine-month-old association had promised to support the committee's decision. These included Australia's jNewcojnbe, Tony Roche, Rosewall and Fred Slolle and Ashe, Smith and Charlie Pasarell from the United Slates. which ended the Brewers' 10- game winning streak. The Red Sox swept the doubleheader when Rick Miller tripled in two runs and scored another in the 11th inning of the second game. Marty Pattin and John Curtis were the winning pitchers. The A's scored their eighth victory in 10 games by rallying for six runs in the eighth and ninth innings against the Royals. Sal Bando tied the score with his second homer of the game and Mike Hegan singled in the lead run for the A's. Gene Garber was the loser despite John Mayberry's 18th homer of the year. Consecutive run-scoring doubles by Thurman Munson and Gene Michael climaxed a three- run fourth inning and' sparked the Yankees to their triumph over the Orioles. Alexander suffered his third loss against five victories. Wilbur Wood, now 14-8, suffered bis fifth loss in his last six; decisions when plnchhitter Winston Llenas hit a three-run homer in the seventh. Bill Singer pitched a six-hitter for the Angels, allowing the White Sox' run in the fifth on a walk, Bill Sharp's single and Allan Gallagher's error and raising his record to 11-3. Wood was tagged for nine hits in 6 1-3 innings. Rod Carew stretched his hitting streak to 18 games and George Mitterwald hit his fifth homer of the season for the Twins as Jim Kaat scored his eighth win. Jim Bibby went seven innings for the loss in his AL starting debut.
