"It's probably because he just challenges the hitters," Roberts said. "He throws a lot of sliders and off speed pitches and keeps the ball away from you until he gets behind. A Great Pitcher "He's a great pitcher, a premier pitcher in the National League, and he's not afraid to come in and challenge you instead of giving you a tough pitch when he gets behind. He comes in and guys hit it out. "My first one came on an inside fast ball, and I'm sure he wanted to throw me a tough pitch and got it out over the plate a little more than he wanted to. I got a couple of pitches in my zone and hit them out." Colbert, who hit 38 homers 'last year, got his 10th this sea- fefifster-Mail Gales Thursday, Page son and said Jenkins "made a few more mistakes on breaking balls. "Ive never seen him get + breaking balls up like he did against us. It seems he's lost his concentration right now and when you lose your cofleeittf a* tion, everything else goes the same, but the body won't do what you want it to do/' Lockman declared the problem "primarily is a question d control." Throwing Pretty Well "Fergy is throwing pretty well velocity wise," he said. "However, he is throwing quite a* few balls high in the strike zone, and this is the type pitch most batters are aWe to hit for distance. Mechanically he's doing everything well, but he's not been able to get the ball in the strike zone." r j . the Padres, beating Jenkins for the first time in his career after losing to him 13 times previously, extended the Cubs' losing streak to six games with losses' and will be back today to try for three straight over Chicago. the Cubs too will be without Ron Santo, who suffered a muscle strain and; spasm in the lower lumbar region when trying to avoid a tag by Colbert at first base. "It doesn't appear to be very serious,'' Lockman said, "but any time you lose a player of santo's caliber for any length of time, it's unfortunate." 1? i'r 4> ft 1 1 \i ft Major League Standing National League « f J n Erom left are Cincinnati catcher Johnny Bench, second baseman Joe Morgan and left fielder Pete Rose, who, by the vote of fans in the All-Star balloting are three Reds assured of positions on the National League team when play begins Bench, Morgan and Rose Tuesday in Kansas City.

UNIFAX By MARTIN LADER UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - Predicting an era of increased national expansion and intercontinental basketball for his successor, Walter Kennedy has announced his intention to relinquish his job as commissioner of the National Basketball Association on June 1, 1975. "I believe you can safely expect some kind of expansion beyond the current 17 teams and by the fate 70s or early '80s the NBA will be expanding to .Europe;" Kennedy said Wednesday upon making the formal announcement of his retirement. "By then jet travel will be more convenient and the costs lower.

When Kennedy first took over the job as commissioner, the NBA consisted of only nine teams and it didn't have a television contract.

I also felt I wanted more time to be able to spend with my wife and children and to do some leisurely travel." He emphasized, in answer to several questions referring to printed reports that he was being forced out by the NBA Board of Governors, that the decision to quit was strictly his own. "This is my own decision," he stated firmly. "The stories that were in the papers are utterly untrue. I was under, no pressure at all to make this i decision. The only consultation I had on the matter was with my wife." Kennedy also stated that the owners were prepared to offer him a new contract if he wanted he will that new it. Instead, serve on the committee will choose his successor. To help make his retirement more comfortable, the league's Board of Governors voted unanimously to give Kennedy a 10-year contract as a consultant, to take effect upon his retirement.
