ALTON EVENING MONt>A¥, 29, 1983 All-Stars Have Huge ^^MsUgttU iMtt tiB^H^tt ^k «ijH| ^^^U •«• ;* ^U| Task on Friday Night . CHICAGO (AP) - It's no easy task for a group of inexperienced youngsters to go out and defeat the champions of the National Football League, but that's what the College All-Stars have In mind when they meet the Green Bay Packers in Soldier Field Friday night. The 1963 All-Stars, once again coached by Otto Graham, have an excellent chance of upsetting the Packers despite the fact that Green Bay will be anywhere from a two to a three touchdown fa vorlte. If they have nothing else in their favor, there Is the fact that the pros have never been able to win five straight. A string of four straight losses was snapped in 1943 when the All-Stars defeatec Washington 27-7. Another strin of four losses fell in 1935 with 30-27 victory over Cleveland. Th collegians now arc out to brea another four-game losing streal This year, however, the Al Stars have more than history go ing for them. Graham, one of the all-Urn great quarterbacks In pro too ball, took over the All-Star coach ing reins in 1958 with a 35-19 vie tory over Detroit. It was the las for the All-Stars. Tlie All-Stars did it on a com bination of the running of Bobb Mitchell, the field goal kicking o Bobby Conrad, the passing of Jii Ninowski, and an adequate de fense. The saying has been that Cubs Humble Card Twice at Chicago By JOE MOOSHIL Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP)-Bob Kennedy head coach of the Chicago Cubs slumped back in utter disbelief "So that's the biggest crowd the Cubs have had in 11 years? Well they saw more baseball than they could in another 11 years," said Kennedy. The Cub leader might well have been correct. There were no balks, no triple plays—but everything else—as the Cubs beat St. Louis twice, 5-1 and 16-11. The Cubs whipped the Cardinals in the first game behind Dick Ellsworth who struck out 10 and scored his 15th victory against seven defeats. Ellsworth lowered his earned run average to 1.86—best in the National League. A two-run homer by batterymate Jim Schaffer clinched it. But the crowd of 40,222—largest for the Cubs since they drew 40,389 with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1952—was in for some slugging treats in the nightcap. Lou Brock, who was to finish the second game with two homers and five runs batted in, hit his sixth homer with a man on in the first inning for a 2-0 lead in game No. 2 The Cardinals, who had won nine of 11 and were breathing heavily on the necks of the league- leading Los Angeles Dodgers, scored four in the second inning when Julian Javier hit a two-run homer. Chicago tied it in the second with two runs and that's how it stood until the fifth when St. Louis scored four runs on a two-run homer by Ken Boyer, an inside- the-park shot by Gary Kolb and Javier's steal of home. The game was far from over. Brock and Billy Williams hit sue cessive home runs in the botton of the fifth but the Caardinals whipped back with three in th top of the sixth on a two-run horn er by Bill White and a solo bias by George Altman. Refusing to give up, the Cub: scored four in the bottom of the sixth and then sent Lindy McDan iel, a former Cardinal, m to hold the opposition. The Cubs are 6% games off the pace with some important dates coming up against Los Angeles and San Francisco. The Cubs are idle today, but open a three-game series in Milwaukee Tuesday.

The league announced Cronin notified manager Bill Rigney that Piersall was suspended "until the scheduled game of Aug. 2." Piersall's trouble—as a result of which veteran umpire John Stevens landed on the seat of his pants — came during the second game of the doubleheader with the Red Sox at Fenway Park. The Angels are in Cleveland today. Piersall, an Angel only since Saturday, was embroiled in an argument over a called strike with plate umpire Bill Kinnamon. It was the ninth inning of the second game and weak-hitting Jim Fregosi had just been walked intentionally to put runners on first and second, two out, Los Angeles leading 5-4. Reliefer Dick Radatz fired in his first pitch to the 33-year-old Piersall, released last week by PROBABLE PITCHERS By THE ASSOCIATED PKESS American League Petroit (Lolich 4-5) at Balti more (Roberts 9-9), N, Chicago (Horlen 5-2) at Washington (Ridzifc 1-2), N.

It looked about chest high and Kinnamon raised his right hand, signaling a strike. Piersall whirled around and be- ,ian shouting at Kinnamon. Angels manager Bill Rigney raced to Piersall's defense, also protesting. Stevens came in from his second base post. "I grabbed Piersall's bat, try- ng to calm him down," said Stevens. "I told him to take it easy, I didn't want him to get into trouble. I told him he'd be suspended if he didn't slow down. "But he swung away from me, going back to Kinnamon, and let the bat go. I had nothing to hold on to and I fell along the third base path. But I don't blame Jim. He was just mad and I was just trying to calm him down." Piersall, whose 12-year major league history is dotted with epi sodes and escapades of varying color, said he was incensed because Kinnamon accused him of using foul language in his protest. "I wasn't swearing," Piersall said. "I haven't sworn at an umpire all season. I was just com plaining about the call. But I'm sick and tired of being called a clown and a nut. I told Kinnamon that the pitcher (Radatz) was throwing real fast — aspirin tablets — and couldn't he bear down more on his calls." "What the heck," Piersall said. "I'm trying to win a job with this club." Rigney said he doubted if Piersall had sworn. "I think Kinnamon made a mis take in throwing him out like that," he said. "What the heck. It was about 110 out there. Sure, Piersall's hot-headed. But he didn't act any differently than he has for 12 years. He was just arguing about the pitch. That's all." Further action is up to American League President Joe Cronin. His office must rule on all umpire reports of trouble during a game. team must succeed in the air t beat the pros. Last year the Al Stars completed 14 passes for 20 yards but fell before Green Bay 21-point splurge in the final qua: tor, 42-20. Green Bay passed for 255 yarc In that game but the Packers als picked up 125 yards rushing t only 30 for the All-Stars. Actually it was Green Bay's running threa which kept the All-Stars off ba ance and allowed Bart Starr t heave five touchdown passes. This year, the All-Stars hav four quarterbacks who can hot run and pass. They are Heisnia Award winner Terry Baker of Oi egon State; Ron VanderKelen o Wisconsin; Sonny Gibbs of Texa Christian and Glynn Gritting Mississippi. They also have speed and pow er in the backfield. Larry Fergx son of Iowa, Bob Paremore o Florida A&M, Charlie Mitchell o Washington and Roger Kochma of Penn State have the speec Ben Wilson of Southern Californi and Bill Thornton of Nebrask are capable of supplying power. Bob Jencks of Miami, Ohio, ca boot field goals and proved it wit one from 27 yards and anothe from 40 yards in a 13-12 scrim mage loss to the Chicago Bear last week. And pitting fire against fire, the All-Stars have come up with gi ;antic but speedy linemen. On de :ense they'll average 25 pound ,vith the likes of Chuck Siemensk of Penn State, Lee Roy Jordan of Alabama, Lee Roy Caffey o Texas A&M and Danny Brabham of Arkansas. On offense, the All-Stars line can average 250 pounds with Bob r ogel and Daryl Sanders of Ohio tate, Ed Budde and.

(AP Wirephoto) Yankees Divide Pair By JOE REICH Lttlt Associated Press Sports Writer Don't let the halo over Jimmy Plersall's head fool you. He's still he mo'st tempestuous and argu- nentative player in baseball. The newest Angel — he joined Los Angeles last Saturday—was jack in an American League uniform for only a few hours when le became involved in another of lis famous skirmishes with umpires. This one had a little extra flair: An umpire wound up on the seat of his pants—with Piersall's cap with the halo on top in the dirt beside him. The game ended with Piersall on the outside look- ng in, a position in which the fiery outfielder may find himself f the league president, Joe Cronn decides umpire John Stevens didn't fall but was pushed. Piersall celebrated his return to the American League on Saturday jy cracking two hits as the Angels downed the Boston Red Sox 5-2. Jimmy wasn't in the starting line-up as the Angels beat his old team 5-0 in the first game Sunday. In the second game, which Los Angeles won 5-4, Jimmy was highly instrumental in the victory. He singled in the third inning, stole seconoV and eventually scored. He singled again in the eighth and scored what proved to be the winning run when Billy Moran's double play grounder went through shortstop Eddie Bres soud's legs. Detroit beat Washington 3-2 and 6-4; Chicago's White Sox clipped Baltimore 4-1; the New York Yankees split n doublehendei with Minnesota, winning the second game 3-2 after the Twins won the opener 5-1, and Kansas City and Cleveland divided u twin bilf, the Athletics winning the first 3-0 with the Indians taking the second 12-7. In the ninth inning of the sec ond game, Piersall didn't like a called strike by plate umpire Bill Kinnamon and protested vehemently. Kinnamon ordered him off the field. That only infuriated Piersall all the more. Stevens charged in from second base in an effort to calm the raging Piersall but wound up in the dirt near home plate. "Piersall still had his bat in hi; hand," Stevens explained. " grabbed the bat in an effort to calm him. I told him to take it easy if he didn't want to get suspended. "He let go of the bat and I had nothing to hold on to. As he swung away from me to talk to Kinnamon again, I/fell down. "But I don't blame Piersall for that. He was just mad and I was trying to calm him down." Piersall said he was angry be cause Kinnamon accused him of swearing. "I wasn't swearing," he said 'I haven't sworn at an umpire all season. I was just complaining about the call."
