Sophomore hurler Bobby Sam- way started and went the route for the JVs pitching four - hit ball and never in trouble until the seventh inning. Samway was working on a shutout going into the seventh and final inning when he began to show signs of fatigue and allowed the Deer to touch him up for four runs. Right fielder Richard Lopez came out swinging a heavy bat and finished the night with three hits in four trips, two triples, and three runs batted in. Mike Henderson did his own form of a two - run homer in the first inning and Eddie Carroll also showed up well with a two for three night. "I was real satisfied with the hall game," said coach Paul Bill Kem, "Everyone did a real good job, especially Samway, those Deer Park kids were backing away from his curves." If the Junior varsity was nervous about their first start of the season, they apparently got over it in a hurry scoring four runs in the first inning and completing the game with only one error. The Gander JVs compiled a total of 10 hits in their season debut The picture wasn't so bright runs in the first inning but at Texas City Saturday. it's THJS Year- Franks Isn't Worried At All About Past I PHOENIX .Ariz. (AP) — "I I don't worry about yesterday," declares San Francisco Giants Manager Herman Franks. "It's today and after today it's tomorrow." The gruff skipper, who cam so close to a pennant in his freshman managing year of 1965, figures his baseball club will be stronger in 1956. He doesn't look back on last year when the Giants led the National League by Wz games on Sept. 16 and then lost out to Los Angeles in the final two weeks and wound up in second, Uwo games back. "Our club played great," says Herman. "The other club just played better." Franks also proved himself an astute leader with the abiity to get the best out of his players. It was remarkable the Giants came close without having Orlando Cepeda, the slugger who led the club in batting the previous season. His right knee didn't respond following an operation in December, 1964. This spring Orlando says the knee feels all right and it has stood up under early testing. With Cepeda out, Willie McCovey reclaimed the first base job and Franks plans to keep him there. So big Orlando figures to do most of his playing in the outfield. No one can doubt the San Francisco batting power. Willie Mays, the National League's Most Valuable Player, belted a career high of 52 homers last year to lead the majors. McCovey contributed 39 arid third baseman Jim Hart belted 23. Cepeda had 31 in 1964. Ace right-hander Juan Maricha! won 22 games and veteran Bob Shaw notched 16 after moving from the bullpen into a starting role. Bob Bolin and Ron He-be; won 34 and 12, respectively, and both were most effective in the latter half of the campaign. All four are right- handers. So is Frank Linzy, whose sinker ball made him a most effective reliever in his first full season of major league ball. The lanky Oklahoman posted a 9-3 record with 14 saves and an earned-mn-average of 1.43. Last year, the Giants counted on Bill Henry and Masanori Murakami as their left-handed relievers. Since Murakami left for his native Japan, the shortage of southpaw throwers has become more acute. Jo" '""'•••>-ir came from Pitts- jlbur^h m a. winter trade and Jlfarm hands Dick Estelle and A] Stanek try again to make the grade. Otherwise the throwing is from the right hand side. Veteran Lindy McDaniel, acquired from the Cubs, should strengthen the bullpen. Tom Haller Handles most of the catching with newcomer Bob Barton given a chance to beat out Dick Bertell and Jack Hiatt for the understudy job. Around the infield it's McCo- vev at first. Hal Lanier at second, Dick Schofield or Tito Fuentes at short and Hart at third . Captain Mays anchors the outfield, flanked by Jesus Alou and either Cepeda or Len Gabrielson, who hit .301 for the Giants after being traded from the Cubs on May 30 last year. He lacks Cepeda's power but fields better. Don Landrum, another ex- Cub, will take over from Mays when the 34-year-old star needs rest. Veteran Jimmy Davenport returns to the utility infielder's job. Should Hart be called for military service, Davenport would take over third. ALL-COTTON GOLF SHIRTS ARE NOW FEATURED AT CARL'S.
