Santo Sparks Cubs; Torre Leads Cardinals! By FRED McMANE UPI Sports Writer lion Santo of the Chicago Cubs and Jo© Torre ot the St. Louis Cardinals, the two men battling for the starting third base position on the National League All-Star squad, are doing their best to make the fans' choice a difficult one. Santo, who has played In seven previous All-Star games, drove in four runs and scored the other two as the Cubs beat the Montreal Expos, 6-1, in the first game of a doubleheader Wednesday and .then homered with one out in the ninth inning to lie the second game, which was suspended by darkness after 12 innings with the score tied at 3-3. The suspended contest will be completed before the start of today's regularly scheduled game. Torre, also a seven-time All- Slar, had a big day at the plate as the Cardinals walloped the Pittsburgh Pirates, 15-4, behind a 22-hit attack. Torre hit for the cycle, collecting a single, double, triple and homcf as he drove in three runs. Torre had more of a contest with teammate Ted Simmons than with Pirate pitching. Simmons drove in five runs with a homer, two doubles and a sacrifice fly. "I'm a terrible ballplayer when I go for myself," Torre said. "In a game so one-sided, though, you can just sit back and relax. It was like a day off." Register-Mail SPORTS Galesburg, III., Thursday, June 28, 1973 Page 33 In the only other National League games, Houston routed Cincinnati, 10-2, San Francisco beat Atlanta, 6-5, and Philadelphia took the second game of a doubleheader from New York, 7-1, after losing the opener, 7-6. San Diego and Los Angeles were idle. Detroit took both ends of a doubleheader from Milwaukee, 6-3 and 5-4, Texas edged Minnesota, 4-3, New York blanked Baltimore, 4-0, Oakland beat Kansas . City, 3-2, and California topped Chicago, 3-1, in American League contests. Cleveland at Boston was rained out. Doug Rader and rookie Skip Jutze cracked two-run doubles during a five-run, sixth-inning rally that highlighted the Astros' victory over the Reds. Jerry Reuss went the distance for the Houston iwin, while Fred Norman took the less. Dave Rader drove in three runs with a pair of homers to spark the Giants' victory over the Braves. Ron Bryant worked eight innings and received credit for his 12th win of the season despite giving up homers to Ralph Garr and Mike Lum. Mike Schmidt drove in five runs with a pair of homers, including his second grand slam of the year, to pace the Phillies' second game victory' over the Mets. Mike Wallace, making his major league debut, " went the route for the Phliles and allowed only seven hits. In the opener, the MeW scored seven runs in the first inning then held on as the Phillies battled back. Pitcher George Stone and catcher Ron Hodges contributed two-run singles to the first inning rally, Greg Luzlnskl and Mike Anderson homered for the Phillies. By VITO STELIMO • UPI Sports Writer It didn't take Bob Short long to reap the dividends on his investment in David Clyde. The 18-year-old lefthander, who got a $125,000 bonus from the Texas Rangers' owner after being the No. 1 pick in the major league draft two weeks ago, attracted the largest baseball crowd in the team's history—a sellout throng of 35,698—for his big league debut Wednesday night. As a bonus, he even won the game with a five-inning performance as the Rangers edged the Minnesota Twins, 4-3. Manager Whitey Herzog planned to lift him after five innings and Clyde was ready to come out since he threw 112 pitches. He was wild and walked seven batters and struck out eight in his stint. Six of the walks came in the first two innings as he was obviously nervous. But he allowed just one hit—a two-run homer—by Wimbledon Gate As Big as Ever By ROBERT MUSEL WIMBLEDON, England (UPI) — The old order is changing at the hallowed Wimbledon tennis championships would you believe screaming schoolgirls mobbing players?—tout one thing remains constant. And that is the steady click- click-clicking of the turnstiles as Britons turn.out. in sunshine and in rain to make the annual pilgrimage. Three days of moderate tennis that would not figure to fill a stand anywhere else in the world have brought more than 75,000 people into the All- England Tennis and Croquet Club where the idea of a tournament of tennis players first took hold 96 years ago. At this stage of the two weeks of competition the boycott by 70 top players of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) may have reduced the standard of skill but it has done absolutely nothing to the gate. And the $147,800 prize money will be covered with a handsome profit. Hie Nastase of - Romania, darling of the schoolgirls, took over as No. 1 seed from Stan Smith. He won through to the last 32 of the men's singles Wednesday by beating Ivan Molina of Colombia in four sets despite the recurrence of a back injury which helped him drop the second set. Nastase fell heavily at Queen's Club Saturday and wrenched his back. All the other seeds, Jimmy Connors of Belleville, 111., Alex Metrevelli of Russia, Jurgen Fassbender of West Germany and blond Bjorn Borg of Sweden—only 16 years old—also went through to the third round. The women were not involved in the boycott and are a big help to. the box office since Britons like women's tennis more than most. Big Margaret Court of Australia, aiming • for her second grand slam of the Australian, French, Wimbledon and Forest Hills titles, took no chances with her own back in beating her countrywoman Karen Krantczke. Miss Court spent three days in bed last week lying on a board to straighten out her spine. Chris Evert, who plays as though she, were programmed by a computer, two-handed her way to an easy win over a very nervous Romanian, Mrs, Judith Gohn, 6-0, 6-1. The play was so one-sided the East European matron won a center court ovation for winning the eighth game. Whatever, the men do or do not do, Wimbledon knows it cani sell out the place with Miss' Court, Evonne Goolagong, Billie Jean King and Miss Evert. And if the emergency seeds sprout into genuine orchids it will be important only insofar as standing room goes. All seats are already sold. 1 Worth v Win another rookie, Mike Adams. "I wish I could have done a little better but I was so wild," Clyde said. "I wasn't really that nervous but I was in awe." In the other American League games, Detroit swept a doubleheader from Milwaukee, 6-3 and 5-4, Baltimore blanked New York, 4-0, Oakland edged Kansas City, 3-2, and California nipped Chicago, 3-1. The Cleveland at Boston game was rained out. In the National League, New York beat Philadelphia, 7-6, but lost the second game, 7-1, San Francisco edged Atlanta, 6-5, St. Louis routed Pittsburgh, 154, Chicago beat Montreal, 6-1, but the second game was suspended by darkness with fie score- tied, 3-3, and Houston routed Cincinnati, 10-2. San Diego and Los Angeles were idle. Paul Blair slammed a homer and a double to back Dave McNally's shutout pitching as Baltimore beat New York. McNally gave up 10 hits, all singles. Dick McAuliffe's eighth career grand slam homer with two out in the eighth paced Detroit to the first game victory over Milwaukee. In the second game, Willie Horton tripled home the tying run and then scored the winning'run on Duke Sims' double in the fifth inning. Bill Singer recorded his 12th victory with a four-hitter as the Angels edged the White Sox. Mike Epstein hit a two-run homer for the Angels. Shortstop Fred Patek's throwing error in the ninth inning allowed Bert Campaneris to score all the way from first as Oakland edged Kansas City. Jim Hunter won the victory, while Paul Splittorff took the loss. Rookies Dropped NEW ORLEANS (UPI) — The New Or learns Saints dropped three rookies Wednesday because they failed their physicals. Bobby Garner, the team's 17th-round draft choice and free agents Eric Hyman and Buzy Rosenborg were dropped. Major League Standings National League East w. I. pet. g .b. Chicago 44 30 .595 — s .
