III. Saturday, June 30, 1973 iWimbledon Lacks Top Class Tennis 5 ^ By ROBERT MUSEL WIMBLEDON, England — The fans have come in-the thousands but what this $irnbledon Championship needs eteil more is one of the Imperishable court duels that carves its name so often in tennis history. A gate of over 130,000 for the first five days is gratifying if only to rub it in the noses of the 70~:or so members of the Association of Tennis Profes slo'nals who boycotted the tbtirnament in sympathy with a suspended player and predicted the worst. ,v, Bljt once the fans are inside the famous All - E n g 1 a n d grounds they would like to see world class tennis and that has b$n in short supply as the first wgbk of the two-week grass court classic comes to Its end today. *'3tsays a lot when the first match to set the tournament aUght came only Friday when Jurgen Fassbender of Germany, seeded eighth by courtesy* of the professional defection, beat Ray Keldie of Australia in a ! '185-minute, five-set cliffhanger.* n i 3?here was another sizzler Thursday between 17-year-old Bjorn Borg, the Swedish sixth- SSeUed, and Karl Meiler of Germany. But those apart the tennis has been often interesting, often entertaining but never up on the eights which players have achieved in this 96-year-old tournament more than any other. The boycott has produced an extraordinary melange of coun tries in the last 16 of the men's singles. There arc three Americans—fifth-seeded Jimmy Con nors of Belleville, 111., Alex Mayer of Wayne, N.J., and Bob McKinley of St. Ann, Mo. And then the United Nations—two Germans, two Britons, two Indians, one Romanian, one Russian, one South African, one Hungarian, one Swede, one Czech and one Australian. There were no surprises in the women's play in which six American girls reached the last 16 headed by Billie Jean King of Hilton Head, S.C., the defending titleholder. Margaret Court of Australia, the top seed, and all the other seeds got through to the last 16 without losing a set. The American contingent in the last 16 included fourth- seeded Chris Evert of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., fifth-seeded Rosemary Casals of San Francisco, Kristie Kemmer of Los Angeles, Patti Hogan of La Jolla, Calif,, and Peggy Michel of Pacific Palisades, Calif. Hale Irwin Holds Lead In Western CHICAGO (UP!) - Hale Irwin plays thinking man's golf and tries to give himself "a chance with every shot." The theory paid off Friday. Irwin, 28, who learned the game at the age of four from his father on the sand greens of a Kansas nine-hole course, held a two-stroke lead on the field heading into the final 36 holes of $175,000 Western Open which pays the winner $35,000. "I try to play steady golf," ho said. "Put the ball in the fairway off the tee, and then approach to the side of the green the flag is on, or the back, wherever the flag is, to give myself a chance. I haven't been doing that very well lately." But Friday he followed his program expertly in equaling his best form of the year with a 66—five under par at Midlothian—for a 36-hole, nine-under- par 133. Loading money winner Bruce Crampton, trying to become golf's fifth millionaire, and Rik Massengale, seeking his first tourney win, were Irwin's main challengers heading into the third round, both at 135. Massengale, conceding he felt "some pressure," welcomed his position nevertheless because •'I haven't been here before," he said, "but I'm not a front runner. Murcer Paces Yankee Win By VITO STELLINO UPI Sports Writer Bobby Murcer had no com' plaints about Gaylord Perry's pitching Friday night. Murcer, fined $250 earlier in the day by, baseball Commissioner Bowie, Kuhn for saying Kuhn didn't have the "guts" to stop Perry from throwing the spitball, got i» chance to prove Friday night that' Perry's pitching Isn't always that difficult to hit, He hit a two-run homer off Perry that highlighted a six-run fourth inning and carried the New York Yankees to a 7-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians. Roy White chipped in with two solo homers. Murcer made his original comment about Kuhn after Perry beat New York Monday night to snap the Yanks' eight game winning streak. The Yanks returned home Friday to start a home" stand and Kuhn immediately called Murcer on the carpet and fined him for his comment. Kuhn said that Murcer apologized but Murcer refused to tell newsmen that he did and ho didn't sound too contrite. Murcer, who flung his right hand into the air when he rounded first after hitting the homer, was in a much better mood after the game. "I hit a 'hanging spltter* for the homer," he quipped. In the other games, Texas blanked Kansas City, 3-0, Baltimore routed Detroit, 0-2, Chicago edged Oakland, 4-3, and Minnesota blanked California, 4-0. The Milwaukee at Boston game was rained out. In the National League, Los Angeles outlasted Atlanta, 124, in 12 innings, Pittsburgh beat Montreal, 4-0, Cincinnati beat San Diego, 4-0, Chicago nipped New York, 4-3, in 10 innings, San Francisco trounced Houston, 14-3, and St. Louis edged Philadelphia, 2-1, in 10 innings. Jim Blbby, acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals for two minor leaguers earlier this month, threw a one-hitter to give Texas the victory over Kansas City. It was only Blbby's second major league victory. Me allowed only a leadoff double to Fran Mealy in the sixth. Earl Williams highlighted a four-homer barrage with his first two on the road this season and Doyle Alexander scattered five hits to give Baltimore the victory over Detroit. It was Baltimore's fifth straight win and snapped a four^game winning streak by the Tigers. Ed Herrmann's solo homer in the eighth inning proved to be the difference as Chicago edged Oakland. The win enabled the Sox to regain first place in the American League West by four percentage points. Chicago had a 4-1 lead in the ninth when Sal Bantlo doubled in two runs but Cy Acosta came out of tha bullpen to strike out pinch hitter Joe Rudl and end the game. Bobby Darwin's grand slam homer with two out| in the eighth inning broke open a scoreless , deadlock and gave Minnesota the victory over California. Bert Blylevcn pitohed a four-hitter for his 10th win. in 18 decisions while outduellng Nolan Ryan. Each hurler had limtied the opposition to three hits when Darwin ripped a Ryan pitch for his 11th homer. Bonds Hits Grand Slam Home Run Cubs Defeat Mets 4-3 in 10th Inning By JOE FROHL1NGER UPI Sports': Writer Bobby Bonds was in fine fonm Friday night as he blasted a grand slam home run in the seventh inning—the second of his career—ito lead the San Francisco Giants to a 14-3 shellacking of the Houston Astros. Ho said he wasn't thinking homer wihen he came to bat. "I hadn't hit a homer in so long ithat I was beginning to think I'd never hit one again. Tonight I tried not to think about it and wanted to hit a sacrifice fly or a double play." Bonds pinch hit for Jim Willoughby with the Giants trailing, 3-1. Singles by Gary Matthews and Chris Speier and a hit batsman loaded the bases before Bonds connected for his 20th homer Of this season. The Giants erupted for nine runs to run away with the game in the ninth. Gary Thcnnasson drove In two runs with a bases-loaded double. The other big blows were two-run doubles by bobh Mafctlhiews and Garry Maddox and a two-run make sure that I didn't hit into I homer by Speier. ' ; CHICAGO (UPI) - Manager .tyhttey Lockman disagreed with a^New York sportswriter who suggested Chicago's 4 - 3 victory over the Mets Friday was "typical of the Cubs' march to the lop of the Eastern Division standings. "What do you mean, typical?" Lockman asked. "How often can we depend, on a man who has started only four games to hit a home run? Or another rookie to hit his first homer of the year?" Lockman was talking about outfielder Adrian Garrett, who smarted in- the Cubs' lineup for thj},fifth time in 1973 and who led-off the seventh inning with a'.ihomcr for the Cubs' second r,un,of the game. ,, Garrett was subbing for Billy Williams, who remained in the cRjgout because of sore back muscles. Garrett was pulled from the batting order and replaced in the eighth inning by Gene Hiser who came to bat with two outs in the ninth inning and hit his first big league homer to give the Cubs a 3-3 tie and send the game Jnto overtime. Hiser, a 22-year-old former All -America baseball player at the University of Maryland, was particularly thrilled by the on Don Kessinger's single and walks to Williams, coming in as a pinchhitter; and Rich Monday. Glenn Beckert's grounder forced Kessinger at the plate, but Jose Cardenal lined a single to left field to bring home Williams from third base with the winning run. The Cubs will try to make it seven victories in eight games Saturday with Burt Hooton facing the Mets' Tom Matlack. Injury-Riddled Sox Down A % Back in First OAKLAND (UPI) - Despite a string of injuries to key players, the Chicago White Sox aren't rolling over and playing dead. They hopped on 11-game winner Ken Holtzman for nine hits Friday night en route to a 4-3 win over the Oakland Athletics. The victory lifted the White Sox back into first place in the hectic American League West race by .004 over the A's. So far this season, the White Sox have been plaped by 20 separate injuries or illnesses. "They never give up," said Chicago Manager Chuck Tan "We haven't had a set lineup since May 4. But these guys don't throw in the towel. They go out and play every game as though it might be their last." Ed Herrmann's solo homer off Holtzman, now 11-8 and loser of.five straight, proved to be the difference Friday night. The other Chicago runs scored on a passed ball, sacrifice fly and single by Luis Alvarado. "Holtzman's running into some tough luck," said A's Manager Dick Williams. "He's getting the short end of It because we're not scoring any runs for him and we're stranding too many runners." Oakland collected 10 hits offi won the end," nsr. "We can't feel sorry for shoi H o"'e7The'"righrTield"wafl^ourselves because we have lost because his mother, father and'J «Ph ««.vs as (Dick) AHen.ifhree Whi»e-Sox pitchers but , :^ es "' sister drove from Baltimore to (Blll > Me '°n and (lerry) For- tha A's left 11 runners on base, sec the game.

Broad 343-4121 By ED SAINSBURY UPI Sports Writer CHICAGO (UPI) - Secretariat, rated as perhaps the greates thoroughbred ever, risks bis reputation against three outclassed rivals today on a track ones known as the "graveyard of champions." The flashy chestnut 3-year- old, ninth winner of the Triple Grown and out of the money only once in 15 career starts, will sprinit a mile and an eighth at Arlington Park on the same surface where such lofty turf names as Whirlaway, Bull Lea, Johnstown, Discovery ?.nd Iron Leige failed to win when they were h'javy favorites. Secretariat was a record setter in winning the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont, and perhaps will be granted a record for his Preakness j victory at a hearing next 'month. He was a 1 to 20 favorite in Una early line for the race against My Gallant, Our Native and Blue Chip Dan in the invitational event. On past performance, he should go off close to that figure, even though his three rivals will be coupled in the betting, restricted to win only, so bettors must choose Secretariat or the field. The Meadow Stable colt, already syndicated for more than $6 million, will be after the American record, trainer •l.ucien Laurin said, trying to beat the clocking of 1:45 1-5 by ' Figonaro at Del Mar in 1969. | "I'm not out here just to gallop, win, lose or draw," | Laurin sadd. "There's no such thing as a cinch in a race. He'll run all he can run." Secretariat will be in the No. 4 post position with jockey Ron Turcotte; Our Native in No. 1 with Tony Rini; Blue Chip Dan in No. 2 with Leslie Ahrerts, and My Gallant in No. 3 with Craig Perret. All four galloped on the track Friday in final workouts.
