Relief Chore Has Become Slot for Bob Berry By LARRY ANDERSON • •' (Staff Writer) Boh 1 'Berry "just concentrates on'"throwing" and by doing so has-become Galesburg American Legion's top hurter this season WHen Berry takes to the mound in the second game of tonight's douMeheader with Genesed at H. T. Custer Park, he will be going for his eighth victory of the season against no fosses. And in a way that fact is as.much a surprise to Berrv -as;;i^fs to Post 285 coach Fred Stevens. 'Hie righthander, who will be a /''senior at Gialesburg High ; School this fall, saw action last spring mainly as a relief man '.mil the Silver Streak baseball squads that was eliminated in Bob Berry the state championship at Peoria by Chicago Hubbard, the team that went on to win the state crown. Although Bob managed to pick up two wins while suffering no defeats, it was his value as a reliever that earned him a berth on the Legion team. However, after one stint at relief coach Stevens gave him a start. "I picked him up primarily as ia reliever, and he's earned his way into the starting rotation," explains Stevens. "There is no way I'll keep him out of the starting lineup now." Berry, who is 6-1 and 167 pounds, responded to his chance at a full-time role with some impressive statistics. He backs up his 7-0 record with a team- Sharon Miller Has y , * Women's Open Lead "2. By IRA MILLER ".ofUPI Sports Writer .: ROCHESTER, N.Y. (UPI) This _ may be the Women's ; .Open,^ but at least one of the • topTariale golfers is' playing a blgWe. • Bruce Crampton loaned his -regular tour caddy to Sharon Kay* Miller a couple of weeks ago--and in three weeks he •fi7gi £red out what Sharon coutdfl't in eight years—that she:Mas lining up all wrong on her putts. .. Thar result was a three-under- par 63 Friday that left Miss Miller, in her 185th professional • toutHiament and still looking for '- f her;';first victory, with a 142 • ""totafc" and four-stroke lead ; star^fig today's third round. ; H i used to think I couldn't " readjgreens but I've been using - Bruce Crampton's caddy the y lasHflree weeks and he showed me I was lining up wrong. So here-I have my caddy behind met&ung them up for me." Miss Miller, 32, from Battle Greek, Mich., had seven one- putt greens Friday. Shelley Hamlin and Kathy Martin, a pair of second-year California pros, joined three- time former National Amateur champion Ann Quast Welts Sander in a deadlock for second at 146. Miss Hamlin's 70, which included birdies on three of the last six holes, was the second best round Friday. "It's been frustrating," said Miss Miller, who has only three second place finishes—the last at Atlanta last month where a final-hole bogey cost her a shot at a playoff—to show for her eight years on the LPGA tour. "But," sha added, "I know 1 can do it. I know I can hit it better or as well as most of the other girls. But when you can't putt, what can you do?" Putting hasn't been Miss Miller's only frustration. A member of the LPGA executive board which suspended Jane Blalock for alleged cheating in May 1972, Miss Miller said she was. close to giving up the game last winter because of all the "hassle" over Miss Blalock's case. "It just didn't make sense to me to come out here and beat my brains out when somebody comes out and does what she does," Miss Miller said. Under questioning, however, Miss Miller admitted she never actually saw Miss Blalock cheat. "But many, many people I've talked to have seen her," she insisted. The controversy is far from,on^the throwing," he explains, settled despite a recent court ruling that the suspension was illegal. Someone already has accused. Miss Blalock, 12 strokes off the lead with a 154 total, of cheating ' in this tournament. P. J. Boatwright, executive director of the USGA, checked out the charge and found nothing. leading 1.7 earned run average. He has faced 224 men so far tills season and yielded only 40 base bits. Twenty-five runs have been scored against him but only 10 were earned. In 53 and two-third innings pitched, he has recorded 59 strikeouts, a team high, and walked 38 batters. Like the rest of the pitching staff, he has been tagged for no home runs. At the plate he is not faring so well, though. He posts a .166 batting average. Pitching more than he expected at the start of the season, Bob is enjoying his summer with the Legion. "It's more competitive, and I'm getting more of a chance to pitch than in high school," he says. He has played very little at any position other than pitcher and likes mound duty best. Berry's bread-and-butter pitch is the curve ball. "I've never had any problems with the curve ball. I've been throwing it since Little League," he says. Recognizing "the effectiveness of his curve, Stevens also cites Berry's control and good fast ball. The Legion mentor notes bis deceptive speed because "he doesn't look as strong as he is out there (on the mound)." Stevens, who regards the young fonder as an all-around ball player, sums up his opinion of Berry by saying, "He knows how to pitch and changes speed well to keep the batters off stride. That's what a pitcher is supposed to do." Bib himself credits part of his success to not worrying so much about what pitches to throw but rather how to throw them. "Whoever is catching, Blixt (Jerry) or Thiel (Mark), calls the pitches.

Presentations will be made following the final round a week from Sunday at Bunker Links. i The month of Juty, called "Dog Days" by many fiiher* men, ha* provided some pretty lair cliches up to this dit«. Last Saturday morning a neighbor, Jim Browning, and fishing partner, Bruce McQull- len, stopped by the house to show off i beautiful stringer of fish thit they had caught from a farm pom earlier that morning. Included In the catch were a pair of bass with the largest weighing 4 pounds, 9 ounces, another one just slightly smaller, a 4 pound, 9 ounce catfish, 6 smaller bass, and one blueglll. The pair caught all the fish on Zekes purple worms. ., A large blueglll weighing l pound, 7 ounces is registered at both Gale Ward's and Dom's. It was registered by Ron Formhals and caught from a farm pond using a Humpback Rebel. " A rumor floating in from the Victoria area is that a impound catfish was caught by "Noisey" Sornberger from a secret creek located near Victoria. Someone during the conversation mentioned that "Noisey" is a person who will at times stretch the truth just a little bit. We couldn 't find out the bait he used but he's been seen wearing gloves, and no one can figure out whether he's trying to avoid sunburned hands or hide scratch marks made from handfishing. Benny Palmer, resident of Lake Bracken, says members are doing real well on catches of channel cat, bluegill and crappie. Benny also told us about one day this past week when he decided to take his fly rod and try to see what he could catch from his dock. After making three or four casts with a worm gang, he hung onto a 3-pound blue cat. According to Benny "it really doubled up my fly rod". Warner "Harpy" Harpman, proprietor of Manson Heights, mentioned that members were hitting some sizable bass from their waters. Chuck Garrison, Register- Mail linotype operator, and family joined his parents Mr. and Mrs. Leo Garrison and their granddaughter, Robin, for a fishing venture at several lakes located west of Brookings, South Dakota. The group totaled 200 fish, mostly bullheads of the v/z to 2* pound size using night crawlers, chuck's son, Greg, took top honors with a 5-pound northern pike. A catch of 76 in one day proved to be their best. Chuck's parents and their granddaughter hail from Malvern, Iowa. Friend Wendell Albert of Sea Star Boats, who just returned from the Manitowoc, Wis., area says the coho salmon fishing has been slow but- the lake trout are hitting at this time between Milwaukee and Manitowoc. Wendell thought it might be a good idea to mention to our readers that there is no gas shortage up that way. This past Sunday morning, fishing partner, Ed McVey, introduced his oldest son, Bobby, and my oldest grandson, Jim Emery, who is visiting from Indianapolis, to their first bass fishing outing. Our catch totaled five keeper-sized bass. It's really amusing to see how big a youngster's eyes can get when they tie into their first bass. The boys said they didn't even mind getting up at 3 o'clock in the morning. Lawrence's New Job BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (UPI) — Bob Lawrence, 35, will succeed the retiring, Ernie Andres as head baseball coach at Indiana University it was announced Friday. Andres served 25 years as head coach, with a 388-368 won- lost record and retired this year to work in the university's alumni office. Lawrence, 35, has been assistant coach since 1985. Midwest League Clinton 2 Appleton 1 Wis. Rapids 7 Quincy 6 Decatur at Waterloo — rained out Danville at Cedar Rapids — j rained out Says Key to CHICAGO (UPI) - Ellas Sosa said that "confidence" was what pulled him through when the Chicago Cubs threat ened m the ninth inning Friday to come from behind for a sec end straight day and beat the San Francisco Giants. Juan Marichal, who now has beaten the Cubs 23 times in 31 decisions, lasted 9 1-3 innings and apparently was en route to an easy win until Pat Bourque homered with one out in the ninth to cut the Giants' lead to 5-4 and bring in Sosa. The situation grew more tense when Rkk Monday and Don Kessinger singled, but Sosa said that was "when I knew I had the confidence to win." He got Billy Williams on a called third strike and the Cubs' star slugger leaned back from the plate in amazement. But Sosa staid he had no doubt about the pitch. "It was right in the black," he said. "A fast ball and a good pitch." But Sosa then walked Jim Hickman to fill (the bases and bring up Jose Cardenal and he said it was almost according to plan. "f was throwing breaking stuff to Hickman, and just missing," he said. "A little outside, a little inside. I said well, let's get him out of there and bring on Cardenal." Cardertal went according to plan too, swinging at an outside pitch, a slider, to end the game. It was the Cubs' seventh loss in the last eight games, the 13th in the last 19, and the eighth in 10 games mis year against the Giants. The brightest spot in the game for the Cubs was the fact that Billy Williams got his 12th homer. But it was his first since June 1 in Wrigley Field and even with Rick Monday on base to give him two inns batted in, it boosted his RBl's to only five in the last month, June 20 to July 20. The Giants' Bobby Bonds got two doubles and soared twice and Dave Rader hit his seventh homer to help Marichal get the win and Sosa get his ninth save. Rader's homer, in the eighth inning, turned into the winning run. National All-Stars Post Tourney Win GENESEO — Galesburg's Little League National All- Stars stayed alive in the Sub- District Tournament here Thursday night with a 13-2 victory over the East Moline American All-Stars. Galesburg's other entry, the American All-Stars, in the single elimination tourney beat Moline 7-2 Tuesday night but was defeated Thursday. With their win the National All-Stars move into the semifinals Sunday and are scheduled to play at 6 p.m. The winner in the tourney meets the district champs from Milan on Monday with the ultimate goal the right to play in the Little League World Series. The Nationals pounded out 10 hits enroute to the victory. Jeff Galloway got three base hits in four trips to the plate, while Tom Southwell went two for three. Both blasted home runs. Southwell was the winning pitcher as he struck out 13 East Moline batters. Galetburg Sibley SouthweU Turney Galloway Nordgren Taylor Holt Shaver Felz 1 Glasnovich 3 R. Barstow 0 Mitchell 2 S.
