" Cdrny as it sounds, he.wanted it for the California Angels, and (hey; needed one more than Nq}an Ryan did. fle had pitched a no-hitter against the Kansas City Royals on"". May 15 and when he duplicated the feat against the De$»i't Tigers Sunday, Ryan fecame the first pitcher in 20 years to pitch two no-hitters in the s>ame season. Ryan, a fireballing M-year- old righthander from Alvin, Tex., struck out 12 of the first 14 battens he retired as the California Angels blanked the Tigers, 6-0. Ryan finished with >17 strikeouts—the most ever in a no-hit game—before a Cap Day crowd-of 41,411 in Detroit. Ryan walked four batters. Johnny Vander, Meer, who pitched consecutive no*hiitters with Cincinnati in 1938, Allie Reynolds of the Yankees in 1M1, and Virgil Trucks of Detroit in 1952 were the previous pitchers in major league history to throw two no- hitters iri the same season. Jim Maloney of Cincinnati threw 10 innings of hitless ball but lost, 1-0, on a home run in the 11th inning in 1965. He came back later mat year with a 10-inning no-hitter which he won. The victory broke a four- game California losing streak and snapped a winning string of five games for the Tigers. It marked the second time this season that a no-hitter has been thrown against Detroit. "1 really wanted it," said Ryan, who rarely talks about himself. "The club needed it and I needed it." The Angels, in third place, are AV2 games behind the Oakland A's in the American League's tight Western Division scramble. "1 haven't pitched that well recently," said Ryan, who places a high premium on the club's over*all success • and accepts personal achievements with modesty. Ryan, wfho was the major league's strikeout leader last season, has had difficulty in getting batting support from his teammates this season. The victory improved Ryan's record to 11-11 but California Manager Bobby Winkles id banking heavily on Ryan in the second half of the season to lead the Angels into the playoffs. Lylc's 24th Save I think Nolie feels that for us to be a contender he has to have a good second half," Winkles said. "He's made up his mind he's going to have a good second hailf even if we don't get him any runs." In oi'Jher American League Beman Wins Golf Classic ROBINSON, 111. (UP!) Dearie Bemian was happy to pick up the $25,000 first prize money in tflie $125,000 Shrine Rcbinson Open Golf Classic, but he'"was even more pleased that fc^M his game together again, j played very solid golf," said the 35-year-old Bethesda, fyld,, title winner after his victory Sunday. "I dnove the b$l very well and the way I am playing now you can put me on any gdl'f course in the 'country and I can play it." Beman, with rounds of 69-686^67, bad a total of 13-under- par 271 on the par-71, 6,556-yard Crawford County Country Club cSiUrse to win by one stroke over Bunky Henry and Bob Dickson, each of whom picked up'$ll,562. Chuck Courtosy was alone in f&Srth with 273 for $5,875 while C^alesburg Register-Mail SPORTS GALESBURG, ILL., MON., JULY 16, 1973 • ••• • • PAGE 18 Larry Hinson was fifth with a 274 and earned $5,125. A tie for sixth at 275 gave George Archer and Andy North $4,250 each. A birdie that Beman scored on the 68th hole proved the deciding stroke and kept the tourney from going into overtime for the fifth consecutive year. The last four Classics were settled by sudden death play, a PGA record. Beman, whose last victory came in the 1972 Quad -Cities Open following a 1969 win in the Texas Open and the 1970 Milwaukee Open, gave a large share of credit in his victory to a friend, Carl Lohran, golf pro at the Glenhead North Shore Country Club in Long Island. "He helped straighten out my game," Beman said. First money brought the former U .S. amateur champion's career earnings to $364,067. The $11,562 share of second place money represented a bonanza for the hard luck Henry of Valdosta, Ga,. a formeir place kicker for Bobby Dodd at Georgia Tech. Until recently, Henry had been without a sponsor for about three years after "going broke." He was off the tour for a month before-Robinson after a 5-year-old twin son suffered a head injury in a fall off a high dive and his wife went to the hospital to have their fourth child. He had earned only $455 this year on the tour. Henry scored three birdies and an eagle three in his final round of 66, but was proudest of saving par on the 510-yard 15th hole when he "popped one shot into some trees" and put the next one into a ditch. Sixty-eight players finished at 284 or better for the 72 holes and 74 of the 144 who started playing last Thursday finished I in the money. Ryan Ranks With Greats: Teammates By RICHARD L. SHOOK * " ^' DETROIT (UPI) - Frank Robinson has batted against all the best pitchers in both leagues over the last 15 years, including Nolan Ryan, and he says his current teammate with the California Angels rates . right up there with the best of action, New York stopped Kansas City, 2-0, Oakland downed Milwaukee, 8-5, Minnesota edged Cleveland in 10 innings, 7-6, Baltimore edged Chicago, 3-2, and Boston beat Texas, 3-1, in a rain-shortened 5'/ 2 inning game. In the National League Houston blanked Philadelphia 20, Atlanta/downed Montreal 6-1, Cincinnati beat New York 8 *1, Los Angeles tripped Chicago 9* 3, St. Louis edged San Diego 5-4 in 15 innings, and San Francisco ripped Pittsburgh 120. The Angels gave Ryan a breather at th? end with a -five- run eighth inning. Winston Llenas cracked a two-run single, Bob Oliver singled home a run and Al Gallagher singled home two more to close out the scoring. Roy White singled home two runs in the eighth inning to back up the combined four-hit pitching of Sam McDowell and Sparky Lyfc in New York's win over Kansas City. McDowell, 4 1, allowed three hits while walking seven and fanning seven. Lyle pitched the ninth to pick up his 24th save of the year. Evans' Homer Bill North's ninth-inning double drove in two runs and Reggie Jackson added a two- run home run as Oakland scored four runs in the ninth for a victory over Milwaukee. Dick Green and Bert Campa- neris singled in the ninth. With one out, North doubled to score Green and Campaneris and with two outs, Jackson hit his 20th home run into the right field bleachers. Danny Thompson's one-out sacrifice fly in the' 10th inning scored pinch runner Mike Adams and gave Minnesota a victory over Cleveland. Adams entered the game as a pinch runner for Tony Oliva, who walked to lead off the 10th, and took second when George Miterwald walked to third on a walk to Jim Holt. Successive eighth-inning home runs by George Mitter- wald, Joe Lis and Jim Holt gave the Twins a 6-5 lead but Buddy Bell singled home the tying run in the ninth> The homers erased a 5-3 lead supplied earlier in the inning on a three-run homer by George Hendrick, his 19th. , Dwight Evans cracked a solo homer in the second inning to give Boston a victory over Texas. Evans snapped a 1-1 tie with his fifth homer of the year into the left field. screen with one out in the second. Rain delayed the start of the game for 2 hours and 52 minutes and showers persisted throughout the contest before it finally was called. Baltimore erupted for three runs on four hits in the top of the sixth inning to edge Chicago. The winning rally started when Mark Belanger doubled and Al Bumbry singled Belanger home. Paul Blair walked and Tommy Davis singled to score Bumbry before Earl Williams singled home the third run.

He threw a lot of curves out there. "In fact," he added with a big grin, "he struck me out three times and I wasn't even playing." Both California teammates and Detroit rivals joined in praising Ryan after the young righthander threw his second no-hitter of the season Sunday as the Angels beat the Tigers, 6-0. Ryan struck out 17 batters, the most by any pitcher in a no-hit game. He walked four foatters. No Detroit batter reached second base, every Tiger in the lineup struck out at least once, and there was only one hard-hit ball for the California fielders to handle. That came with one out in the ninth inning when Gates Brown drilled a line drive that had Detroit shortstop Rudy Meoli, only 5-9, stretching (Continued on Page 19) IU'L Site" National League East w.

He hit two home runs Sunday to become one of only 15 major league players ever to reach the 400-mark as the San Francisco Giants ripped the Pittsburgh Pirates 12-0. "It could have been a bigger thrill. I don't feel I have to be put in the position of having to prove anything." said McCovey, who at the age of 34 this season has hit 17 homers and batted in 43 runs. The two shots by McCovey's paced a 15-hit Giant attack and gave him 17 for the season, adding to a total of 401 liftime. Juan Marichal pitched the CYCLE INSURANCE Call Us For A Quote Today!

I didn't feel that way in the bullpen where I hardly pitched at all and wasn't helping the team."
