THE NEWS. Fradttick. Maryland Pftf* B-l ft, 1X7 Time Out For Sports WITH ARTHUR D. POSTAL Distance Is Not As Great ONE OF THE world's greatest sages, whose name must remain anonymous, once said that, "even good things must end." Nowhere, however, in that felicitous statement is there any mention of bad things, which might make the embarrassment of the Washington Redskins even greater. The Redskins, to those who don't know about it, yet, are ·lated tonight to indulge in their first of two annual exercises hi tatUity, the challenging of the Baltimore Colts in mortal combat. According to the dreary statistics, the Redskins have failed to defeat the Colts since 1958 in exhibition games and since 1959 in regular season contests. Through the years, the Colt hex of the Redskins has become worse, with the Colts absolutely demoralizing the Skins in the pre-season game last season, 35-0, after giving the regulars the entire second half off, and coming up with a 37-10 victory in the regular season. « * * * THE REGULAR SEASON game is indeed intriguing, with the statistics showing that Sonny Jurgensen, the slowest man on the field, was the leading ground-gainer for the Redskins, although Washington numbered such as Charley Taylor, Bobby Mitchell, Steve Thurlow, A. D. Whitfield and Joe Don Lioney in their running back stable. Things, in fact, got so bad that Joe Don walked to Washington from Baltimore after the game because he fumbled twice and failed to budge the Colt defensive line. With such the history, the current events could well be sobering. Although the Redskins have improved the ground game tremendously, the passing arm of ace quarterback Sonny Jurgensen is now a source of worry, with Jurgy receiving daily doses of cortisone to ease the ache in his throwing elbow, and the defensive backfield still does not seem capable of stopping Raymond Berry, whose health is even poorer today than it was a year ago, when Raymond was blind in one eye, couldn't see out of the other, had two bad knees and one sore shoulder, but still managed to defy the odds and the doctors and catch some important passes, one in the end zone, for the Colts. As if everyone knew about the history, the Colt preparations for 'the game have been somewhat relaxed. Tuesday, the last full day of practice for the game, the Colts worked long, one and a half hours during the afternoon, but not exactly diligently. » * * * THERE WERE important reasons for the lack of diligence. First there was Charles Smith, of "Kill, Bubba, Kill," fame. Bubba, who allegedly weighs 295, did not look it as he slanted in from his defensive left tackle position to smother quarterbacks, and seemed quick as a cat on running plays. Rick Volk, another newcome^, intercepted two passes in the defensive workouts, and Charley Stukes, an?ther rookie, from Maryland State, also looked excellent in the defensive backfield On offense, Tony Lorrick, Tom Matte and Jerry Hill are numtag way ahead of Lenny Moore, the old pro in his if"season wVa tu*y find this his last summer in Westminster Moore is now working behind Willie Richardson at Hanker, ·nd Rick Kestner, who was on the band squad last season, is seeing a lot of action in drills. The ends, too, are all returning, and added to that awesome list of Berry Orr and John Mackey there is another well-known newcomer, Ray Perkins of Alabama. The word is out that Perkins, though only a rookie, may replace Berry as a starter before the middle of the season because of his rating as a superior blocker. · » · * AND THEN there is Unitas. The quiet, diligent Unitas works as hard and as long as anyone on the field, including the rookie and at the same time keeps that detachment from the action that marks him as a leader. He settled his contract problems with Colt owner Carroll Rosenbloom Tues day getting that little thing out of the way. The Colts do havo weaknesses. One is an inability to de'eat Green Bay, which can be understood by even the most critical scout or fan. Another is the lack of a proven backup quarterback. Even Jim Ward, the youngster from D.r-ascns who inherited that position from Gary Cuozzo, admits that his performance Saturday against the Detroit Lkms was not good. But, Ward said Tuesday that th's was due to the cold rain which fell suddenly during the first quarter, tightening up his shoulder. And the Colts do not seem perturbed by his lack of experience. . Another weakness was thought to be at linebacker, where both Don Shinnick and Dennis Gaubatz are recovering from injures But from Tuesday's practice it looks as if Gaubatz will have a hard time disgorging Bill Curry, the former Packer obtained from the New Orleans Saints in the trade for Cuozzo, from the middle linebacker position. Overall, it looks as if Joe Don will be walking home, again, although the distance will not be as great. Red Sox Keep Homering A NEW YORK (AT) -- Carl Yastrzemski, who -atered the game in the eighth inning, blasted his 35th home run of the season Wednesday, snapping a tie and giving Boston a 2-1 victory over the New York Yankees in 11 innings. Al Downing, 12-8, went all the way for the Yankees and struck out 12 Bcjton batters, aUofing eight bits before Yastnemski's shot into the right-field stands with two out in the inning. Frank's Homer Whips Twins In 10th Inning MINNEAPOLIS-St. Paul (AP) -- Frank Robinson's 26th home run--a two-run shot in the 10th inning--gave the Baltimore Orioles a 4-2 victory over Minnesota Wednesday night. The defeat dropped the Twins m games back of first place Boston, which defeated New York. Robinson's homer sailed 370 feet and scored BOOR Powell, who had singled. It beat Dean Chance, 17-10, who had pitched {. no-hitter against Cleveland in his last start. Reliever Eddie Watt, who struck out four batters in the two innings he worked, gained credit for the victory. The Orioles scored two runs in the sixth, combining three singles with a walk and Rod Car-" ew's error. Luis Aparicio led off the Orioles' sixth with .a single. Boog Powell singled, sending Aparicio to second and Paul Blair fo'lowed with a run-scoring single off Chance. Minnesota second baseman Rod Carew booted Frank Robinson's grounder, loading the bases. Chance then gave up his first walk, a costly one that forced in Powell. Pinch hitter Bob Allison tied it at 2-2 in the bottom of the eighth by hitting his 20th home run with one out. The Twins had gotten their first run in the second inning, when Carew singled to center, scoring Harmon Killebrew. Killebrew had walked, stole second and advanced to third when catcher AnHv Etcbpharren BALTIMORE MINNESOTA ·b r h bl ab r h r- Anii'fln ss 1 1 " Uh'aendr cf 4 n « PcwHi 1b " : » · - Tovar II 4 o n V , Blnlr cf 0 i I Ollwfl rf 4 0 ' cOholrsn 'f 4 1 i A Klll«brew 1b 3 i Blefarv If 4 0 0 ' RoltM*1b 4 0 « i BOobinsn 3b 4 0 1 0 Ca--ew Zb 3 0 1 ' Etchebrn c 3 0 0 · Vcrsalles ss 3 0 " o | Snvder ph 1 0 1 0 7lnr"man c 2 0 1 " | Haney c 0 0 0 ' Allison ph 1 i ' Belanger 2b 3 0 0 C -""'-r*n r n A " Baroerdr p 3 0 i Peese ph 1 0 r n Ma" ph 1 C n DCharce p 2 0 ' Watt p 0 0 1 Tetalf M 4 7 * Totals 31 J 4 J Baitlmor* 000 007 (X)i 7- ' Minnesota 010 000 010 0--] E--Etcnebarren, Carew.
