Saturday, July2j3J?73 litek Scores From n Infield Hit, Beats Sox *-ly CHARLIE SMITH %mA& art <uf »D -^M saved one of the most plays in baseball from second base on an f"hit ~* for the 10th inning * night. And the tun de« by the piston-legged top pulled the Kansas Royals to within of the world champion Oakland A's in the American .League West with a 2-1 win 'over the Chicago White Sox. ; With the score tied, 1-1, and •one out, Patek worked Chicago's ace reliever, Terry Forster for a walk in the 10th. At 5- feet-4 the smallest player In the major leagues, Patek broke for second base on the first pitch of Cookie Rojas. It was supposed to be a hit- and-run play, but Forster pitched outride. Patek, despite a late jump, stole the base when catcher Ed Herrmann made a bad throw to the leftfield side of second base. „After Rojas flied out and Amos Otis was intentionally walked, Carl Taylor worked the count to 3-and-2 before fouling off a pitch. Patek was breaking on the foul ball and when he reached third base, Coach Harry Dunlop said* "You've got to score on anything hit on the ground." Taylor hit the next pitch sharply up the middle, but shortstop Eddie Leon made a brilliant diving stop behind second base. Patek, however, never stopped running and slid past Herrmann before the throw from the surprised Leon. "I thought the ball was through," said Patek. "Then I looked back between third and home and he (Leon) was lift- PGA Junior Winners ITisblaying their trophies are, left to right, 32 £ug Allensworth, 16-17 age group; Dan Sttirzbach, 14-15; Eric Thiel, 12-13, and Bd|by Coe, 11 and under, who were the winners in the PGA Junior Tournament at Lake m •Si?

Over-all, the way the Soviets prefer to figure meet results given their traditional strength on the distaff side, the Russians led 106-102. A double fumble in the men's 400-meter relay gave the go- ahead to the American men, whose seniors were beaten earlier this week by the Soviets in Minsk.

That's the fever the atmosphere Galesburg Pioneer catcher Mike Bollman At times he'd Hop for a thought* ful twist eit the moustache he Is nursing to maturity. . "1 played tin four leigues during the summer whw t was in high sehool. Witt the double- litraders and aU those schedules competing ait once, a lot of the lime we'd end up changing uniforms in the back seats of cars driving between bail parks." Bollman adjusted himself in his seat and looked towards the ceiling. "Let's see. We Won thedis* Mkf title in high school. And one year the team I was on p'aced second In the state of Texas in a teen-age league it's about the same as American Legion baseball tip here. Maybe it's even better." Bollman released the corner of his moustache from between hw fingers and laughed to himself. "All those coaches and all , those leagues can really mess you up. If you listen to what everybody says, you can really get turned around. You've got to be able to listen to the best's given to you and just use that. "You,know people can talk (to you until they're blue in the face and it won't do you any good. You've got to go out and doit. "I've always prided myself on learning most of what I know about'catching myself. But of all my coaches my dad's been the best. There's no doubt about that. "He played third and shortstop for Pittsburgh in the majors. He was more of a hitter. He's taught me everything I know about hitting, though."

Dick Groat played at shortstop for the Pirates and BUI M**roski wis at second. Dick droit was tv c Most Valuable Player in the National League while he played shortstop. When he came to the club; my dad moved over to third." Mike leaned back, laughed and shook his head at the same time. "Bob Pettit played for Pittsburgh white my dad was there too; He was the first $100,000 bonus in baseball. He pitched [one no-hit game and then quit or was injured or something. He hover played again," Bollman comes to the Pioneers after terrorizing opposing pitchers in the Southwest Conference while playing at the University of Houston. The sophomore ended this past spring with a .375 baiting average which placed him fifth overall in the conference. The first year I was at the university I split, catching with a senior. But at the end of the year I started all the time since the coach knew the senior wouldn't be coming back. I think I hit about .280 that year." Bollman then brought the conversation back to the current season with the Pioneers. "At the first of the year I was leading the league after the first three weeks. I was batting .375 and had four home runs and 12 RBIs. Then we went to Charleston and I slid into second and hurt my ankle. I went into a slump after that and now I'm just starting back. "My senior year of high school I had a bad break too. I broke my jaw in January, and I had my jaw wired for eight weeks. I was weak at the beginning of the season but brought my average back to .302 by the end of the year. "It was still bad, though. I think a lot of the scouts figured I'd peaked out after batting .340 the year before. "I was drafted in the 12th round by Baltimore after that but I didn't sign because I didn't feel I was ready. But now I feel better physically. I'm really developing more and more every year. \ "I'd like to hit a little better, though. I know I could but being a catcher is hard. Pitching is the hardest position in baseball but pitchers only have to play one out of every five days. Catchers have to go at it every day. . "Being where all the action's at makes up for lit but there's a reason why catchers don't do better batting. It's a rough life. That's why a good catcher in the pros hits .250 besides being grod defensively." Bollman thought to himself and then added, "I'm a streak hitter. When I'm in a streak I'm hard to stop." Who knows? Maybe he'll get into such a streak and follow in his father's footsteps. Hendrick Spoils Palmer No-Hitters By FRED McMANE UPI Sports Writer Jim Palmer will not have much trouble remembering George Hendrick the next time tihey meet. liendrick, an oftimes moody outfielder for the Cleveland Indians with whom Palmer was not too familiar, cost the Baltimore Orioles' righthander the second mo-hitter of his careen- Friday night when he singled sharply to center as the leadoff batter in the eighth inning. It was the only hit Palmer allowed as he hurled the Orioles to a 9-0 victory in | the first game of a doubleheader. Palmer, who came within two outs of a perfect game earlier this season before settling for a two-hiitter, notched his fourth shutout of the year and ran his record to 12-*, but he didn't feel he was that overpowering. "I'm happy to win but I really didn't have anything exceptional going for me, nothing outstanding, unless you consider the fact I had the best defense in baseball behind me," grounded to short on it. We haven't seen that much of Hendrick and the toughest guys are the ones you don't know. I pitch to him more down than away, but he waits well." The Orioles supported Palmer with a season-high IB hits, including three by Tommy Davis, who drove in five runs. Bobby Grich added a homer to the Orioles' offense. Baltimore also won the nightoap, 5-2, as Andy Etchebarren delivered a three-run double in the fourth inning. Charlie Spikes accounted for Cleveland's only offense of the twinbill with a pair of homers in the nightcap In other American League action, Detroit topped Boston 42, Kansas City edged Chicago 2 1 in 10 innings, New York edged Milwaukee 7-6, Texas beat California 5-2 and Minnesota whipped Oakland 8-2. Houston beat Los Angeles 5-2, New York nipped St. Louis 2-1, Montreal edged Philadelphia 54, Cincinnati routed Atlanta 122, Pittsburgh downed Chicago 10-6 and San Diego topped San he said. "Hendrick hit a slider Francisco in National League that broke good. He could have games. i Al Kaline, enduring the worst season of his 20 years in the majors, hit la homer in the first inning then snapped a 1-1 tie in the eiglhth with a two-run single as the Tigers beat the Red Sox for the 10th time in 11 games. I enjoyed it, and I haven't had too many enjoyable days this year," said Uhe veteran outfielder, who entered the game hitting only .221. "Another itwo or three days and I'll be over the hump. You need three or four good days of hitting consistently to get your confidence built up, and I'm not doing that. I don't think there is any doubt, any question, I'll hit the rest of the year." Fred Patek scored all the way from second base with the winning run on an infield hit by Carl Taylor to give the Royals a victory over the White Sox. Patek walked with one out, stole second and continued all the way home when shortstop Eddie Leon made a diving stop on Taylor's smash up the middle. The victory was the 1 Royals' 15th in their last 22 games and moved them within one half game of first place Oakland in'the AL West. j The Yankees twice overcame three-run deficits to defeat the Brewers. A triple by Roy White and a single by Ron Blomberg pushed across the winning run in the eighth and Lindy McDaniel turned in 6 2-3 innings of two-hit relief to gain his seventh victory in 10 decisions. Graig Nettles had a homer for the Yankees. Tom Grieve's first home run of the year, a three-run shot in the second inning, enabled the Rangers to defeat the Angels for their sixth straight triumph Jim Fregosi also homered for the Rangers while Bob Oliver I had a homer for California. George Mitterwald and Steve Brye homered during a seven- run first inning that carried the Twins to victory over the A's. Bert Blyleven went the distance for the Twins to gain his 13th victory of the year. WARM TOMORROW Time to Insulate WHITE'S PHONE &42-0185 INTEREST RATES ARE UP! First National Pays the Maximum!
