FAN FAKE By Walt Ditsen 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 Pilits, the first a pinch grand slammer, and fourth of the spring to lead all Angel hitters. With 14 RIB's and a .359. average, Stuart has said he may become the first free 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 hospital for X-rays but I don't think 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 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 to 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. Special lo The Republic 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 — ted the 17-hit attack against Qes Moines, which had a 6-2-1 record up fo yesterday. ; JERNIGAN, getting a trial at first base, touched off the fireworks with a 400-foot home run in the second. Stephenson hit a three-run dou- ble 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. "WE'VE HAD good spring for A pretty our first Two of Taylor's hits were doubles. 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. DES MOINES .

The Royals go 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 administering a 10-0 beating. Dave Adlesh and Clete Boyer had two hits apiece for the Braves while Ron Reed, Ken Johnson and George Stone combined for the three-hitter. George Mittenwald's third hit of the game, a bases- loaded single in the 10th in- ning, drove in Minnesota's winning run in a 5-4 victory over Boston. Ton 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. Jerry Koosman, a 19-game winner, who has been plagued by arm trouble this spring, worked five strong innings for the Mets' "B" squad which dropped a 2-1 decision to Montreal. 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. _ _ LLL/Uia The Arizona Republic 69 Phoenix, Thnrs., April 3, 1969 PNEUMATIC SMINO lOOSTtftS AIR LIFT OVERLOAD SPRINGS!

HR Expos face cold delay Associated Press MONTREAL - Montreal, plagued with a lingering winter, is faced with the possibility of having to postpone its first-ever major league baseball game April 14. The expansion Expos are scheduled for their home opener on that date against the St. Louis Cardinals, but Lew Martin, director of operations for the new National League team, said the weather may prevent it. CONTINUING SNOW flurries and low temperatures have placed "a distinct hardship" on construction crews working on 28,450-seat Jarry Park, which will serve as the home field for the team. "Any further delays caused by the weather could force postponement of our home opener," Martin said. "We must have eight to 10 days of good, warm weather in the next two weeks to allow our new field to dry out. "It is extremely hard and could become unplayable if the frost doesn't get out of it in a hurry." "WE MUST have warm weather to be able to work on the field," Martin said. "If the temperature was to get up in the high 40s or 50s and stay there, we would have a chance. Washington .
