By BOB EGER Republic Sports Writer ' FRANCISCO GRANDE If you can't beat 'em, join *«m. That's the thought that was going through young Don Carrithers' head yesterday as he toed the pitching rubber •gainst Amarillo. But the 19-year-old right* tander from Lynwood, Calif., did beat 'em, and he latched «n to a job with the Phoenix Giants. Pitching with one foot in Phoenix and one foot in Amarillo, Carrithers drew rave notices from skipper Charlie Fox and general manager Rosy Ryan as Phoenix prevailed by a 10-9 count. "IP THEY'D have worked him over, I'm afraid we would have had to send him down," said Fox. "But he made some great pitches. He has good stuff, and I think he Just may cut it in Triple-A." *I want to see more of this youngster," echoed Ryan. "He bu a good arm." The Phoenix defense behind Carrithers left something to be desired, but the 6-2, 185- pound rookie still permitted just three hits and one earned run in four innings. He walked one and whiffed four. "IF HE KEEPS pitching like that," said Fox, "we'll put him in that starting rota- ton." Carrithers was a late- •eason sensation at Fresno last year, compiling a perfect 7-0 record and 2.15 earned run average after promotion from Decatur. He combined with Goodyear's Jim Mover (18-7, 2.24) to give FVesno one of the best hurl- tag duos in minor league ball. Moyer will pitch today when the Giants entertain Ta- coraa here at 1 p.m. "If he throws like he did last time out," says Fox, "he's my second-night pitcher." Rookie Leslie Scott is expected to pitch opening night.

SCOTTSOALE made up largely of players recently cut from the Phoenix roster. Al Gallagher won It for Phoenix with a two-out single in the ninth. Gallagher didn't hurt his bid for a spot on the club with two singles and a double in four official trips to the plate. "I broke my glasses last year and I just got them fixed yesterday," said Gallagher. "It's amazing how much better you play when you can see." ALSO WIELDING a big bat for Phoenix was Bobby Taylor, the 1968 Texas League bat champ who's expected to open in left field for the Giants. Bobby-T smacked a single, double and home run, scored two runs and knocked in two. _ , , _ . . ^ "I worked out with a weight- *^V n t£l^.W^'iMSi«. ed bat all winter," said Tay- - c - h -- < * ?r ' • .^•"m.- "•**... T.y]pr, lor, "and I think it's made me quicker." Tito Fuentes checked into camp and got in a five-inning tour of duty at shortstop. He doubled home a run as Phoenix scored three times in the sixth. John Stephenson displayed a big bat once again from the cleanup spot, smacking a two-run double in a four-run Phoenix first. EXHIBITION EXTRAS — Ryan said he hasn't heard further from Baltimore regarding a trade - out or some other arrangement to acquire leftv reliever Larry Miller. The Giant's GM announced the Municipal stadium ticket office would be open from 9 a.m. to 5 P.m. today and tomorrow to handle orders for me opener next Friday night against Vancouver. He also revealed a special bonus ticket offer under which a packet of nine $1.50 tickets may be obtained for $10 If purchased before opening day. price is "way up," presumably fattened by the ABA's declaration of war. In the offing are further meetings with Walk's attorney. "YOU NEVER talk to the players any more," Colangelo noted wryly. Regardless of their decision on Walk, the Suns will have six of the first 44 selections in this year's NBA college draft — the second, 24th, 31st, 33rd, 39th and 44th. Three of those were acquired through trades — the 24th from Boston (second- round pick), 33rd from Detroit (third-round pick) and 39th from Atlanta (third- round pick). PHOENIX WOULD have been in position to make the league's 16th selection, but the Suns had to deal their second-round choice to Chicago to pry coach Johnny Kerr out of a contract with the Bulls. . Only the first round is scheduled during Monday's 14-city telephone hookup. The remaining rounds are set for early May in New York. TEMPE— Arizona State cannonaded 21 hits shutting out Wisconsin, 1&-0, yesterday behind the throttling pitching of Larry Gura, now 8-0. Gura set the Badgers down with a sparce six hits and never was pressured as the Devils jumped to a 2-0 first inning lead and then kept pumping, including a nine-run burst in the fifth. Three homers, including one by John Ray Powell who also doubled in a 2-for-3 day, Dolphins get defensive back MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Dolphins announced the signing of 13th draft choice Amos Ayres, a defensive back from Arkansas AM&N College, to a 1969 American Football League contract. spiced the Devil attack.
