2S / DES MOINES REGISTER • Sat., Aug. 30, 1975 Buck repeats: Reds don't rank among great teams CINCINNATI, OHIO (AP) — St. Louis sportscaster Jack Buck, who recently drew fire for stating the 1975 Cincinnati Reds won't rank among the best teams ever, says he's not retreating from his original evaluation. "This is not .going to go down in history as one of the great teams like the New York Yankees, the Philadelphia A's or some of the old Cardinal teams," Buck said Friday. "I don't think Cincinnati has the pitching. You can't tell me that Clay Kirby, Fred Norman and Pat Darcy are going to rank up there with the great pitching staff Cleveland had with the Wynns, Garcias, . and Fellers," he said. Buck was criticized after his comments on a nationally-televised game the Reds played in St. Louis Aug. 18. "I got a lot of letters over what I said," he admits. "I even heard from Bob Howsam, the Reds' president. "People think I was putting Cincinnati down. I didn't say the Reds weren't good. I said their attitude and the way they work together makes them better than anyone else," Buck said. "I've talked to players on their team and they agree with me," he said. The Reds have an 88-44 record and have opened a huge 18Vfc-game lead over defending National League champion Los Angeles in what threatens to be the biggest runaway since the divisional system was devised in 1069. The Cinci n n a t i pitching staff earlier this summer set a major league record when it went 45 consecutive games without a starter finishing. Cincinnati is seeking its fourth division title in six seasons, but remains frustrated by post-season failures in 1970, 1972 and 1973. The Reds' last World Series title came in 1940. Buck, who will host a sports special on NBC-TV this fall, admits he received a cool welcome in Cincinnati Thursday when trie Cards opened a four-game series. GIEL DENIES RACIAL CHARGE MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. (AP) — Minnesota Athletic Director Paul Giel said Friday he chose Jim Butcher for basketball coach because he "knows the territory" and had recruiting connections in the Big Ten. Giel commented after William Wilson, state commissioner of human rights, alleged racial discrimination figured in the selection. Wilson said he had "reliable information"' that Bill Cofield, an assistant coach at Virginia, was passed over for the Minnesota job because he is black. Michigan Aide Dutcher, who is white, has been an assistant coach at Michigan the past three years. Because of such factors as Dutcher's knowledge of Minnesota and other Big Ten players, Giel said he chose the Michigan aide over Cofield and Ron Ekker of West Texas State, a white and a former assistant Gopher coach. Those three names were given Giel by a six-member search committee headed by Stanley Kegler, university vice-president. "I was a member of the committee," Giel said. "After each candidate was interviewed, (he committee was told that its function was to turn over the names of three individuals, not ranked, to me as athletic director. Every one of those individuals in our opinion as a committee would be worthy of the job as head basketball coach. I was to choose among the three. "I told the committee why I favored Dutcher," continued Giel. "I liked the way lie presented himself, and that he had an outstanding won-lost record when he was head coach at Western Michigan in 1972. 'Acted Properly' "Last but not least," Giel said, "was his tremendous background of recruiting in our own natural area. He knows the territory." Kegler confirmed that Giel had given those same reasons when he chose Dutcher. Cofield received the vote cf all six members. Dutcher received the vote of five — all but Kegler. Ekker received four votes. Kegler said he felt Giel did not override the committee and acted properly. Cubs dump Braves, halt losses at 5 CHICAGO, ILL. (AP) Andy Thornton blasted a two- run homer and a triple and Jose Cardenal hit a solo homer Friday, leading the Chicago Cubs to an 8-3 victory over Atlanta that broke a five-game losing streak. Thornton hit his tenth homer and third in five games to cap a four-run third inning and Cardenal's ninth homer triggered a three-run fifth. Winner Ray Burris (11-10) went the distance and allowed nine hits. In the third. Rick Monday singled and Bill Madlock doubled. Cardenal then tapped to pitcher Carl Morton and Monday was caught in a rundown. But Morton drew an error for obstruction and Monday was allowed to score. Madlock scored on Jerry Morales' sacrifice fly before Thornton home- red. Madlock was 2-for-4 and sent his league-leading batting average to .362.

The triumph put the Reds' season record at 89-44 and moved them four games ahead of their 1970 pace when they set a club record of 102 victories. Cincinnati is now 67-25 against right-handers this season. Phils top Halicki SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF (AP) — Dave Cash's tie-breaking double in a two-run eighth inning boosted Philadelphia to a 3-1 victory over Ed Halicki and San Francisco Friday night, moving the second-place Phillies within three games of P i 11 s b u r g h in the National League Eastern Division. Halicki (8-11), who pitched a no-hitter against the New York Mets Sunday in his last start, walked Johnny Dates with one out in the eighth inning. One out later, Cash sent Gates home with a double. Larry Bowa then tallied Cash with a single. Halicki yielded a one-out single to Tommy Hutton in the second inning and entered the sixth with a one-hitter. Halicki struck out 12 in 7% innings, including National League home run leaders Greg Luzinski and Mike Schmidt three times apiece, sptscity women page PHILADELPHIA SAN FRANCISCO , . „. ab r h bl ab r h bi Cash 2b 3111 Joshua cf 4000 Bowa ss 4022 DThomas 2b 4 0 3 0 Johnstone rf 3 0 0 0 Murcer rf 4000 Witt PHOTO (API MAndrsn rf Luzinskll f Hutton Ib Schmidt 3b Maddox cf Ojtoj c ChrstsnP McCrvr ph McGraw p 1000 Matthews If 4010 4000 Montanez Ib 4 0 1 0 4020 Sneier ss 4110 3000 DaRaderc 3011 4110 Hill ph 1000 2100 Ontiveros 3b 3010 2 0 00 JBrown Ph 1000 1000 Halicki p 3000 1000 Lavelie p 0000 Moffitt p 0000 Total 32 3 6 3 Total 35 1 8 1 Philadelphia 000 001 002- 3 SanFrancisco 000 000 100— 1 E— Ontiveros.

(AP) — Dave Kingman's three- run homer highlighted a six-run first inning explosion against Don Sutton Friday night and the New York Mets rode Jon Matlack's six-hitter to a 6-1 victory over Los Angeles. The victory, the Mets' fifth in a row, moved them within four games of first-place Pittsburgh in the National League Eastern Division. Sutton (16-11) retired the first two Mets on long fly balls, then rookie Mike Vail beat out an infield single. Rusty Staub followed with a double before Kingman planted his twenty- eighth homer in the bullpen. Matlack (16-8) struck out seven, walked one and lost his shutout when Lee Lacy led off the sixth with his sixth homer. The sixteenth victory for Matlack was the most he has achieved in any of his five ma jor league seasons. Eludes Twins' trap Cleveland's Rick Manning scrambles back to first base as Minnesota's Craig Kusick waits for pickoff throw in second inning of Friday night's game at Cleveland. Manning made it back safely. The Indians won, 9-6. OAKS Continued from Page One last nine games (three of them victories). Brookens' test became more harrowing when shortstop John Gamble's high throw put Ramon Perez aboard as pinch- runner Rockne Craig held second. Ike responded by whipping a called third strike past Tom Rima and luring a short fly from Alex Taveras. Shortstop Taveras and center fielder Art Gardner were co- leaders in voting for the club's most valuable player and each received a trophy in midgame ceremonies. McLaren's double was a bid for atonement. His passed ball put Jerry Manuel in position to score on Smokey Robinson's sacrifice fly in the fifth. Jerry walked ahead of Day's second single.

The Strikers scored five runs in the second inning and at the same time the lights went out at Little League Park, causing a 20-minute interruption in the tournament's first game. Chicago took a 6-3 lead and went on to add single runs in the fourth and sixth innings. Tim Houser and Kevin Hickey knocked in two runs apiece for the winners, who increased their season record to 72-10. Automotive Electric moved into the loser's bracket in the double-elimination event and now has a 61-10 record. Len West, the 1974 tournament's most valuable player, had three hits for the Strikers.

"My good memories about that season," he recalled, "were that Dick Bertell was my bridge partner. We made a pretty good combination." Bertell, a graduate of Iowa State and former Des Moines resident, now resides in San Diego, Calif., according to Bouchee. "Those baseball days are gone," he said, "and now I have 16-inch softball to look forward to. It keeps me moving." Phillies add Hoerner, 5 others PHILADELPHIA, PA.
