pr • FAN FARE By Walt Ditzen Expansion Royals keep streak going C/TV The Arizona Republic 61 Eo Thfffs., April $ Strangeglove returns By MIKE GARRETT TEMPE — "Tinker to Evers to . . . . take a chance," Dick Stuart isn't taking any chances on the California Angels cutting him this spring after two years in Japan. The Angel free agent has been showing there is still a lot of baseball left in him at the age of 36. "Dr. Strange- glove" came up with three sparkling fielding plays and cracked a two run homer over the left field fence in leading California to a 6-4 victory over Seattle in the Pilots final home game yesterday. The homer was Stuart's second in two days against the Pilots, the first a pinch grand slammer, and fourth of the spring to lead all Angel hitters. With RBI's and a .359 average, Stuart has said he may become the first . f ree agent to hold out. BIG STU'S two out 6th inning belt off Jim Bouton came after Rick Reichardt had walked. Diego Segui retired the first two batters but the hard smash he took on the right thumb in getting Vic Davalillo bothered his control. Bouton had to come in after three balls to Reichardt. "Segui was taken to the Iwspital for X-rays but I don't th'ink it's serious," Pilots manager Joe Schultz said. Seattle drew first blood in the second on a walk to Mike Ferraro, Jose Vidal's single and a ground out by Gus Gil. California came back with a pair in the third on Jim Fregosi's two run double down the left field line. Don Mincher,, who Schultz is counting on as his cleanup hitter, evened things up in the bottom of the Seattle sixth with a curving three run homer down the right field line, his second of the spring. THE SHOT CAME after Stuart's replacement Jim Spencer muffed a grounder, a fielder's choice and a walk to Phoenix bops Des Moines CASA GRANDE - The Phoenix Giants went on one of their biggest hitting barrages of spring against the toughest of the Cactus League Class AAA teams, beating Des Moines of the American Association here yesterday, 14-6. Two old pros —John Stephenson and Pete Jernigan — led the 17-hit attack against Des Moines, which had a 6-2-1 record up to yesterday. JERNIGAN, getting a trial at first base, touched off the State shooters high in matches FORD ORD, Calif.—Arizona teams and individuals ranked well here yesterday after first firing in the Sixth Army Command Pistol Matches. There are 18 teams and 182 competitors. In first day firing, Arizona teams ranked this way: .22 team match—Fort Huachuca Golds, 6th; Arizona National Guard, 14th; Huachuca Blues, 15th; Yuma Proving Ground, 18th. Centerfire .38 caliber—Golds 6th; ANG 10th, Blues 17th, Yuma 18th. Ray McKnight of the ANG team won the centerfire time- fire with 198-lOx and ranked sixth in .22 aggregate with 866-llx. Doug -Bronson, ANG, won the centerfire open class with 198-5X. Special to The Republic fireworks with a 400-foot home run in the second. Stephenson hit a three-run double in_ the sixth and drove in four runs all told. Bob Taylor, lefthanded hitting left fielder who has had brief stints with Phoenix the last two seasons, joined Stephenson as one of two men with three hits. MANAGER Charlie Fox said he was especially pleased with the performance of pitcher Bob Garibaldi, who went 5% innings, his longest stint of spring. He was most effective with men on base. Garibaldi didn't walk any and used his strikeout pitch when in real trouble. The clubs play again at 1:30 today at Mesa Rendezvous Park. Wayne Comer. The Angels scored the winning runs, in the top of the ninth after two were out. Catcher Tom Egan stroked a two strike two run double to left center. The Pilots blew a golden opportunity to get out of the inning when Ferraro momentarily couldn't find the handle on a tailor-made double play ball and had to settle for a force at second. Minnie Rojas pitched a near perfect 2 2-3 innings of relief to get the win while Bill Henry took the loss. "SOME OF OUR relief pitchers are getting tired," Schultz explained. The Seattle mentor said he planned tc move Steve Whitaker, the Pilots' new acquisition from Kansas City, around to see where he fits in best. Whitaker hit the ball hard a couple times in his Pilot debut but was held hitless. Schultz said he will go with Marty Pattin, 1-2 on the spring, as his opening day pitcher and has pretty much decided on his starting lineup. "WE'VE HAD A pretty good spring for our first year," the former Cardinals coach said. "We had some nice surprises especially Mike Hegan (a .408 spring average). I only wish our pitchers had another week of work." The Pilots are now 8-11 after their first loss to the Angels this spring. California is 13-12. Associated Press The Kansas City Royals and Cincinnati Reds are in shutout streaks at opposite ends of the exhibition baseball spectrum. The Royals got their second consecutive shutout, using three pitchers to blank Philadelphia 2-0. Dave Morehead, Tom Burgmeier and Dave Wickersham allowed the Phillies just one hit—a first inning single by Cookie Rojas. THE REDS, meanwhile, absorbed their third straight shutout, with Atlanta adminis- McCovey HRs spark Giants SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) Willie McCovey hit two home runs — one of them a grand slam — a double and a single powering the San Francisco Giants to a 9-2 exhibition victory over the Cleveland Indians yesterday in a game called after seven innings by agreement. McCovey's grand slam came in the sixth inning'off Cleveland reliever Horacio Pina. His first homer came in the second off starter Sonny Siebert. Bobby Bonds also homered for the Giants and Jose Cardenal hit one off Gaylord Perry for the Indians. McCovey, having by far his best day of the spring, drove in five runs and scored three. Along with his two homers, he scored in the fourth after singling when Bob Barton drew a walk with the bases loaded.

George Mittenwald's third hit of the game, a bases- loaded single in the 10th inning, drove in Minnesota's winning run in a 5-4 victory over Boston. Tony Conigliaro and Rico Petrocelli each rapped two-run homers for the Red Sox. Catcher Frank Fernandez rapped a leadoff home run in the 10th inning, carrying the New York Yankees to a 2-1 victory over the Washington Senators. PITTSBURGH USED four singles, two wild pitches and a balk to score four runs in the fifth inning and defeat the New York Mets 7-3. SANDY ALOMAR singled twice and scored both times as the Chicago White Sox blanked the Chicago Cubs 2-0 in a game called by rain after seven innings. Sammy Ellis went all the way for the White Sox and Bill Hands did the same for the Cubs. Bob Gibson worked seven innings for St. Louis and the Cardinals pounded Detroit 11-3. Norm Cash touched the Cardinal ace for a two-run homer. Mike Shannon drove in three runs and Julian Javier two for the Cards. •HtUMAtie SMIN* IOOSTIRS AIR LIFT OVERLOAD SPRINGS! COMKtTt STOCK!
