I \*-l UJ «J |UI I tBEAKIZOR&ftEIVBUB Friday, August 14, 1970 Page 55 Moyer 9 s superb By BOB EGER Republic Sports Writer HONOLULU - It would have taken a most perceptive observer to pick the 11- time loser out of the crowd at Islander Stadium Wednesday night. It was Jim Moyer, cleverly disguised as a flame thrower, who made it a thoroughly miserable evening for Hawaii's Islanders. Moyer, his fast ball exploding, twirled a two-hitter against the dangerous Islanders as the Phoenix Giants prevailed by a 9-1 score. Bulletin HONOLULU - The Phoenix Giants held a 4-fl lead over Hawaii's Islanders in the sixth inning of their Pacific Coast League baseball game here last night. Phoenix pitcher Bob Garibaldi had blanked the Islanders on one hit for the first five frames. His performance, one of the most impressive by a Pacific Coast League moundsman this year, evened his personal record at 11-11 and left the Islanders wondering how he ever lost that many. "He threw some big league fast balls out there," said Hawaii manager Chuck Tanner. "With a couple of breaks he could have had a no-hitter." The only Islander to solve Moyer was the Coast League's leading hitter, Winston Llenas, who got a questionable infield single in the first inning and a bloop double to right in the sixth. "I really felt strong," said Moyer. "I don't know whether it was the cool weather or the fact that my arm just feels better, but I seem to be unusually quick. "I was throwing the fast ball by them, so I decided not to fool around trying to be cute. I must have thrown 85-90 per cent fast balls.

Bosman (12-8) faced only 28 batters, one over the limit. He gave up a bunt single to Cesar Tovar leading off the game and then retired 16 batters in a row before walking loser Jim Kaat (10-9) in the sixth. The Senators, who only had five hits, scored the only run in the first as Wayne Comer got a one-out bunt single and moved to third when Harmon Killebrew threw wild to first. Frank Howard was walked intentionally. But R.e i c h a r t bounced out as the Twins missed a double play, Comer scoring. C-Town in finale By MIKE McDERMOTT MESA—Chris-Town eked its way into the championship game of the Arizona American Legion baseball tournament last night, edging Chandler, 1-0, at Rendezvous Park. But in the loser's bracket game, Chandler was avenging its loss, leading Arcadia by a 9-3 score after eight innings. The winner will meet Chris-Town at 8 o'clock tonight to decide the state championship. But Chris-Town is holding the upper hand. It is undefeated in the double elimination tournament. Chris-Town ace Joel Godfrey and Chandler's Greg Snowden fought a pitcher's duel through the first five innings with neither team able to push a run across. Chandler came closer though, loading the bases in the fifth. Gary Carver reached on an error to lead off the inning and was sacrificed to second. After Bob Ayala struck out, Godfrey walked Bob Albin and Reed Pew to fill the bases. But Godfrey got Snowden to ground into a force play at second, Pew the victim, ending the threat.

NOW THAT THE professional football players are safely ensconced in camp, National Basketball Association owners must sweat out the possibility of a strike. NBA players, who are due to report to training camp about the middle of next month, are currently engaged in discussions with owners. Prospects for a pro basketball strike are not so imminent as was the case in football. In fact, Phoenix Suns general manager Jerry Colangelo is downright optimistic that all problems' will be settled at the negotiating table before reporting dates. "Up until a couple of weeks ago," said Colangelo, "I was very .concerned that our Players Association would be looking at the developments of the football strike. I anticipated problems. "But the owners have been conducting meetings with the Association and it appears we do not have a big problem." Main difference between the two sports is that football was primarily concerned with the pension plan. The NBA just put a new pension plan into effect last year and it has three more years to run. "The key issue with our players seems to be the playoff pool," Colangelo added. "They receive $400,000 and would like to raise it substantially — possibly triple it. "But this is a point that can be nego- Sports today RADIO-TELEVISION Waier League Baseball— Los Anseles at Chicago (N.L.), KTAR (620), 11:30 a.m.; Detroit »t California (A.L.), KMND (FM—93.3), 8 p.m. Pfcrfciiioiicl football — Baltimore <ft Ksntos C'ly- in KC:ioi,on jc'iitr. Cfi. VI, 5:50 p.fit. tiated out and, even though discussions may continue right up to or into training camp, I feel it can be settled." Colangelo feels that the main reason that pro basketball may escape the woes that beset baseball and football is because the owners have treated players better. "Our players are by far the highest paid professional athletes," he declared. "There is no comparison with other sports." He points out that four years ago there was no minimum salary. Today the minimum is $13,500 "and I expect that to go up another $2,000 soon. "The pension is not a major problem in our current discussions," he added, "and they don't have much to complain about, in my opinion." He said he understood the players' philosophy that they are in the game only a few years and want to get as much as they can. "But the owners must take a stand," he said. "The NBA enjoyed a great year at the gate in 1969. But there were still teams that lost money. There's a limit to how far you can go." The Phoenix club is in an enviable position because it finished in the black last season — and would have done so, even if the Suns had failed to make the playoff. He is even more optimistic for the coming season, for season ticket sales have soared from last year's total of slightly over 1,700 to 3,150. Colangelo figures they will more than double last year's total by tipoff time. "Last year," he said, "we doubled our. gross over the previous year. 1 think our franchise is now considered a plum."

Jack Nicklaus Shares hole of opening round in the PGA Championship at tourney lead with John Miller South five picked to win All-Stars collide tonight R« UAunv nniriE« n .,„...... . ^-^ By HARDY PRICE Republic Sports Writer FLAGSTAFF - It's not exactly that the South is the overwhelming favorite, it's just that not very many people are giving the North much of a chance in tonight's All-Star basketball clash at 8 o'clock in Lumberjack Gym. And the apparent reason is height, but South coaches Tom Bennett (Westwood) and Don Harris (Buena) can show you on paper where the North squad is taller man for man. But the North has no one to match the size of &-9 George Walls of Salpointe. North coaches Royce Youree (East) and Vince Budenholzer (Holbrook) hold ah edge at the guard positions. This worries the South mentors as they are Related story, Page 57 afraid the North's guards will be able to shoot over their guards' beads. "They're big on the inside and quick on the outside," said Youree, "and we're not about to try and make this a run and shoot contest." Youree and Budenholzer plan a starting lineup of 6-3 Rob Babcock (Maryvale) and 6-8 Jim Cramer (Camp Verde) as outside men with 64 Frank MeCowan (Parker), 6-3 Sam Johnson (Agua Fria) and 6-4 Gary Thomas (Bourgade) on the inside. Both Babcock and Cramer are taller tlian the two starting guards for the South, &-10 Mike Sanchez (Marana) and 511 Hobert Navarrele (Morenci).

Bob Harbour (Catalina) at 6-5 joins Walls on the inside and the two will likely give MeCowan and John- vson all they can handle. "We've.got to stop them inside, parti- cularly Walls," continued Youree, "but we can't forget about the quickness of their guards." Youree is no stranger to the underdog role.

Texan Charles Coody and Larry Hinson followed at 69 and were the only other players in the select field able to break par on the sun-seared Southern Hills Country Club course, a 6,962-yard layout. "I played all right," said Nicklaus, the pre-tourney favorite and currently the hottest player on the tour. "I hit the ball extremely well. I played the wrong club once and that cost me two strokes." That was on the par three sixth, which he double bogeyed. But big Jack, the reigning British Open champion who hasn't finished worse than second in his last four tournaments, got that back with birdies on 10 and 11, then closed with birds at 16 and 17. Arnold Palmer, the 40-year-old athlete of the decade who is seeking the one major title that has eluded him, was very much in contention at 70, but some of the other great names of the game had their difficulties in the strength-sapping heat. Lee Trevino had a 72. So did Masters champion Billy Casper. U.S. Open champion Tony Jacklin and South African Gary Player stumbled in with 74s, including a triple bogey six for Jacklin on the 14th. Gaylord Currie and Bill Ogden, two Arizona representatives in the tournament, were well down the line at end of first round play. Currie, Southwest Section PGA champ from Pinewood CC, posted a 38-41—79. Ogden, part-time Tucson resident who was a high finisher in last year's National Club Pro Championship at Scottsdale, toured the course with Currie as a partner and shot 38-39—77. Defending champion Ray Floyd took a 71, then went hustling off in a search of an official to make a complaint. "I don't know who's in charge, but I want to find him," Floyd said. "I think it would save a lot of complaints later." Floyd said that on the landing area for the par four fourth hole "divots had been filled in with piles of red sand. It's all over out there. It looks like an animal has been there. "The fourth is the most narrow fairway out there. You can't avoid that area. Anyone who drives the fairway is in danger. You can hit out of a divot, but you can't hit out of the sand." His tee shot came to rest in the sand and he bogeyed the hole, and the next, and the next, "I really think it led to the bogey on the fifth;" Floyd said. "I was pretty disturbed." Palmer, who matched a birdie with a single bogey, headed a big group at 70 that included 57-year-old Sam Snead, Homero Blancas, Dave Stockton, Jacky Cupit and New Jersey club pro Dick Hendrickson. "It wasn't a bad round," Palmer said, "and could have been a really good round. If I don't shoot any worse than 70 I think I have a chance to win it."
