· Nerthw**! Arkansas TIMES, FAY1TT1VILL1, «KKAN««1 S«pt. 17, 1974 ' Marshall, Messersmith Stymie Houston Dodgers Maintain Slim Lead By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS! Andy Messersmith, the Los · Angeles Dodgers' big winner, apparently thinks that o n e ' d a y . o f f for Mike Marshall, the team's ace relief pitcher, is loo much. And Manager Walt Alston tends to agree. Although the Dodgers were holding a comfortable four-run lead over the Houston Astros after seven innings Monday night, Alston brought in his du- ·-, rable right-hander to preserve T V I n C C O f C J - U l f Vl'o I 0 + K l.;.-.l- nn .. ncluding y Dan Geronimo in a Tour-run third in- ing, .in punishing San Diego. Messersmith's 18th victory. "If Mike doesn't pitch. he . gets rusty sitting around -- and angry," Messersmith quipped after the Dodgers had finished wilh a 7-2 victory and maintained their 2 U-game lead over .the Cincinnati Reds in the Na. tional League West pennant race. "He hadn't worked since .Saturday." The rampaging Reds kepi pace with Los Angeles, batter, ing the hapless San Diego .Padres 9-2 for their seventh victory in eight games. The Dodgers have 15 games re maining and Cincinnati has 14. In other National League . games, the Montreal Expos and . . N e w York Mets split 3-2 deci sions in a twilight-night double header, and the San Francisco Gianls defeated the Atlanta Braves 4-2. Only one American League game was played, the Min nesola Twins trouncing the Kansas City Royals 7-2. Marshall's two scoreless in --nings against Ihe Aslros Mon day night reduced his ERA tc 2.28. In his Iwo-inning stint, he allowed only one baserunner -on a walk. The Dodgers capitalized pi some sloppy Houston play, in eluding four errors, one hit bat sman, one wild pitch and on passed ball, for most of thei acy each had two hils and cored twice for Los Angeles. Reds 9, Padres 2 Cincinnati collected 13 hits, consecutive homers Driesscn and Cesar eronimo, Dave ind Johnny Bench Concepcion each drove n two Cincinnati runs. Bench's wo RBIs gave him 107 for the season and sole' possession of he NL lead. Mets 2-3, Expos 3-2 The Expos tied t h e i r club record of eight consecutive vic- tories by winning Ihe opener, overcoming a 2-1 deficit on Ron Woods' 'two-run single in the seventh inning olf Jerry Koosman, 13-10. In the nightcap, the Mets e n d e d Montreal's winning streak behind the four-hit pitching of Randy Sterling and Tug McGraw. Gianls 4, Braves Z Jim Barr checked the Braves on seven hits for his 13lh victory, and received home runs from Bobby Bonds, who hit his 20th, and Gary Thotnasson, who smacked his first, Bonds also doubled in a run. Dusty Baker homered for the Braves. Twins 7, Royals 2 Bert Blyleven hurled a six- hitter for his 15lh victory and struck out five, increasing his season's total to 225 -- second highest in the American League -- as the surging Twins thumped the slumping Royals The Twins have won eight of their last 10 while the Royals have lost 19 of 23. Steve Braun and Eric Soder holm each singled in two runs for the Twins and Glenn Bor gmann rapped a solo homer. Pea Ridge Quarterback Mentioned Central Gridder Voted AP Award LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Rob-| ert Farrell bears out the old adage that practice makes perfect. To Farrell, a Little Hock Central football practice means: --Working out with the kickers and punters in a speciality period prior to practice. --Going through the regular session as part of the defensive secondary. --Attending the specialty period for receivers after practice. Farrell made good as a receiver, defender, place kicker and punter Friday night in a 17-16 victory over Pine Bluff. For was his performance, Farrell named The Associated Press' high school Player of the playing strong safe- Week. Farrell. . recovered a fumble at the ... _. _____ , runs. Bill Buckner and Lee Pine Bluff 46 early in the sec- ond quarter and then turned receiver to l i a u i i n a 54-yard scor- ng pass from Houston Nutt. Fan-ell's 31-yard Field goal late in the third quarter cut Pine Bluff's lead to 16-10. His 48-yard punt t h a t was killed on the Pine Bluff one in the fourth quarter gave the Tigers field position for their winning TD' drive. Then, with 3:23 remaining in (he game, Farrell kicked the extra point that made the difference. Joe Fred Young, the Central coach, said he never had any doubl thai Farrell would kick the extra point. Young said Farrell's touchdown came on a fly pattern. "We had thrown to him a couple of limies and the half back was coming up real quick. We ran a play-action pass or first down and he got behind the halfback." Young said the Tigers bega using the 6-fool-5 Farrell i passing situations against Pin Bluff. "Once he "gets planted, yo have to go througd his b I frame to get to the football, Young said. "He drew one irr portant pass interference ca ·the other night."

Head coach Frank Broyles said Springdale Smarting Over Northside Game Springdale football fans were itill upset Monday over an offi- :ial's ruling that cost the Bulldogs a touchdown in their 13-12 oss lo Fort Smith ' Northside Friday. Said S p r i n g d a l e Coach Jarrell Williams, "W h e n ·ou see a mistake lhat costs you a hall game, it's a little upsetting, I felt that an official's call caused us to get jeat." Williams 'reconstructed the controversial play: "We had the ball at our own 40-yard line with 2:15 left in the game. It ,vas fourth and 10, so it was our last shot. We threw a screen pass to our fullback, Kerry Burk, and he tripped over a pulling tackle. "My heart went up in my throat, and I said, 'Oh, no.' But Kerry put his hand down and prevented his knee from hitting the ground. I didn't hear a whistle, and when he passed the first-down marker I was ecstatic. . ... ; "Somehow. Kerry kept goin'g He broke tackles right and left and went all the way for a touchdown. He must have been hit five or six times." But when Williams looker back upheld, an official was pointing to the ground, indi ating that Burk's knee had ouched down. "I couldn't restrain myself." said Williams. II went out there and told him he blew it. I think they all realized it, but there wasn'l anything I could do. "What's discouraging is thai our kids beat Northside all over ,he field, in first downs ant iverything .else. It hurts to lose the game on. a call, like that especially when. \Ve. .haven'l beaten Northside, in 20 years. '1 told oiir' team that we knew ·· we won the-game. We're going into the Rogers game wilh the idea that we're 2-0." Williams said he didn't knpv if fullback Mark Zulpo wouk be able lo play against Rogers The 5-9, 220-pound junior missel the Northside game with torn calf muscles. "We'll need him,' said Williams. "Rogers i loaded." The Mountaineers,: 1-1, als challenged Northside all th way,.los.ing 17-10 on a 62-yan touchdown reception by Ir. Harris, with 47 : seconds to play Both Springdale and Roger played at Fort Smith. This Friday's game, the cor ference opener for both AAA West teams, will be played a Springdale. --GRANT HAL fter tti« 22-7 victory, "Tm II drilled as I've ever been," The Cowboys..
