To Gain Division Lead Northwetl Arkoiwa* TIMES, W*d., June 26, 1974 Â·Â»Â·Â«Â·*Â·Â·"Â·Â»-Â«*Â·Â· Â· Â·Â» , ARKANSAS Cards Bypass Pittsburgh Pirates ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals are back atop the National League East but not without a struggle. Manager Red Schoendienst shuffled 20 players, including six pitchers, into the lineup Tuesday night and watched a late rally tip the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-7. So thin were Redbird ranks at the finish that left-hander John Curtis, a starting pitcher, finished in relief. And Sshoendienst, whose club moved a percentage point ahead of the Philadelphia Phils, admitted Sonny Siebert would have been next "If we'd gotten in any more trouble." The 37-year-old Siebert, 7-4, is scheduled to pitch tonight as the Cards attempt to cap a four-same sweep of the fifth- place Sues. Pittsburgh Manager Danny Murtaugh, whose team has lost eight of nine to St, Louis, has nominated hard-luck left-hand- er Jim Rooker, 36, to try to Coach Of The Year HILTON HEAD, S.C. -- The A m e r i c a n Hockey League named Don Cherry, new coach of the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League, as AHL Coach of the Year for the second straight year. become the stopper. i Curtis, 4-7 as a starter, and ;wo eighth-inning hitters who 'ailed to bunt were among key Cardinal figures Tuesday night. "When they told Siebert to go down to the bullpen I told Red I felt good enough to go an in"I'd been throwing about 20 minutes anyway ahead of my next start," he added. "1 felt like I had a lot left and it ought to be put to use." Curtis succeeded where four of five predecessors had failed and set the Pirates down on only Ed Kirkpatrick's single in the ninth. Ahead of the respite a wild eighth inning included four Pi- rate runs for a 7-6 lead which was overcome by a Cardinal counter-attack. ' Ken Reitz led off the winning burst with his second single and Mike Tyson, after failing to sacrifice, doubled home pinch- runner Jack Heidemann. Ted Sizemore was then also supposed to bunt'but failed and singled on the infield setting up a winning hit by Lou Brock. "That's one time when two bunt attempts failed and paid off," observed Cards' coach Vern Benson. "You never know ning." related Curtis, who volunteered for the relief, in this game what's going to happen.' Attesting lo the fact was Pittsburgh's Al Oliver, whose single and two doubles drove in f o u r r u n s and produced the only Pirate lead. "It really hurts to lose a game like this after battling back," he conceded, "but the game's gone now. All WR can. do is try again tomorrow."

"From what I've seen," Cas- jer said after an abbreviated iraclicc round over the wooded, hilly layout, "this is the econd toughest course I've ever played." The toughest was Winged 'oot, site of the U.S. Open two veeks ago. A seven-over-par score won there.

Perhaps the most cogent comment came from tour veteran Butch Baird after his first practice round. "I lost four balls, my hat and my dignity,'. 1 Baird said. Palmer usually plays the :ough courses very well and could find the strengths of Butler National to his advantage in his efforts to break a long, winless string. His best showing of the year was in the Masters. He challenged for the Open title at Winged Foot, and had a 69, best score of the day, in the fill round at Akron last week. "That helped a little." he said. "It's getting a little better." "Others arc U.S. Open champion Hale Irwin.

Detroit And Mickey Lolich Knock Off Baltimore Orioles By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Like American League haters, umpire Russ Goetz had :roub]e handling Oriole pitcher M i k e Cucllar. But u n l i k e the litters, Gnetz knocked him out of a game. It wasn't easy. Cuellar. the screwball-throw- ng left-hander, was g u n n i n g "or his lOth straight victory when he ran into his own wilrl- ncss and then the long arm of the law. Cucllar walked Jim Northrup .0 force in Detroit's second rim in the third inning. Only Cucl- lar didn't sec it the same way home plate u m p i r e Goctz did. "I told him he coulri't see nothing." said Cuellar. Goctz told Cuellar he couldn't sec the game anymore--at least as an active participant. He booted Cuellar out of the game. Or so he thought. The next inning, the banished Cucllar still h a d n ' t vanished, came oni to pitch. It seems his manager. Earl Weaver-also tossed out of the gam?-- wasn't willing to give Cuellar the night o f f . As it turned out. the Tigors' Mickey Lolich gave all the Ori'- oles the night o f f . The durable Detroit left-hander struck ou! nine and limited the Orioles lo seven hits in pitching his IHIi straight complete game, a 2-0 victory. Elsewhere in the American League, the Texas Rangers dropped the Minnesota Twins 73; the Chicago White Sox out- astecl the Kansas City Royals 108 in 12 innings, and Ihc Oakland A's whipped the California Angels 6-1. The Cleveland In- dlans-Ncw York Yankees and .he Milwaukee Brewers-Boston Red Sox games were rained out. A f t e r Goctz threatened lo forfeit the game when Weaver sent Cuellar back out to pitch, Goetz and the third base umpire finally convinced Cuellar Lo leave.
