A's Hope To Win Next Two Oakland Trips Los Angeles Dodgers Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Wed., Od. 16, 1974 rAYITTtVILLE, ARKANSAS 23 OAKLAND (AP) - The Oakland A's don't plan on going back to Los Angeles. "We're a very emotional ball- culb and we could start steam- rolling," said Reggie Jackson afleis the A's beat the Dodgers 3-2 TUesday night and took" a 21 load in Hie World Series. The A's, confident and comfortable in their Oakland Coliseum, can finish otf the Nation. al League champions if they win Hie next two games here, with : Ken Hollzmnn going , Jackson and some others believe it's a good possibility. "The Dodgers are the besl all-around team I've seen in my major league career, Jackson said. "But we're a pretty good team, too. We are a money team. That's w h y . w o v e )een in the World Series for the ast three years." tonight and Vida Blue Thursday ilighl. Manager Alvin Dark and center fielder Bill North were thinking along the same lines. "I know we will be lacing a couple of 20-gamc winners," Dark said of Andy Messersmith and Don Sutton: "But we've got a couple of 20-game winners Tor them, too." Actually, neither. . Sulton. Holtzman nor Blue won 20 games ,in 1974, but Dark contended: "I consider them all 20- game winning pitchers." The way the-Series has been going, you have to give some weight to the feelings of Jackson, Dark and North. The opportunistic A's have cashed in n all the breaks to '"ocal the Dodgers in the first and third games. Los Angeles catcher Joe Fer- juson, the goat of the game with two errors, certainly agreed with Jackson's asses* ment. "They are definitely a team of opportunity," Ferguson said of the A's. "They got away with murder, to say the least." The first opportunity for Oakland came in the third inning after pitcher Catfish Hunter struck out against Al Downing. North singled sharply to'left for his first hit of the Series and went all the way to third on Bert Campaneris' hot ground ball to third baseman Ron Cey. That aggressive baserunning paid oft for Oakland. After Sal Bando walked on a 3-2 count, Jackson bounced a ball in front of the plato and Ferguson muffed it, allowing the first run of the game. Joe Rudi then singled to center to drive home Bando from second base and the A's had a 2-0 lead for 25- jjame winner Hunter. Downing walked a batter leading off the Oakland fourth, but he should have known better. Once Dick Green got on base, the A's found a way to get him all the way around. Hunter sacrificed the runner to second, and after North filed to Bill Buckner near the warning track in left field, Camp aneris singled home the A's third, run -- 'the 'one which turned out to be their game- winner/ The Dodgers produced some ate thunder with solo home runs by Buckner and Willie Crawford in the eighth and ninth innings, tul reliable Uoll- e Fingers preserved Hunter's victory.

Hogs, Horns To Duel At High Noon If World Series Still Going ! Sutton Stresses Aggressiveness In Hogs' First Basketball Drill By GRANT HALL -. TIMES Sports Editor - Eddie Sutton' souned like a football coach'as he described the Arkansas Razorbacks' first day of basketball practice Wednesday. "We had a few minor injuries," said Sutton after the three-hour drill. "You know--bloody nose here, and some umps and bruises there. Robert Birden pulled a groin muscle and may miss two or three days, but the other injuries were minor." Sutton noted that the emphases of the day were on defense and fundamentals, but that the underlying theme was aggressiveness. "If a kid is over-aggressive, we can correct that," he said. "But if he's under-aggressive, we have to instill it in him." Thus, the spectacle of t h e scramble drill. It works like this: two players lie fiat on most of them really don't know bow to play defense." Button outlined the general practice routine: ' "Every day we'll run a few laps, jump rope, push off a wall to strengthen the arm and shooting fingers, do five repitiions of the four- shot Mikan drill, work on ball handling and form shooting. For the big men, . we teach power move and the crossover All that takes six or seven minutes. Then practice starts. The three-hour daily workouts will be followed in the evenings by chalk talks. "There's just so much to cover." explained! Sutlon. The coaches agreed that Charles Terry reported back in the best shape of the 17 players.

Oakland won 3-2 to give them a 2-1 edge in the series Ivan Jordan Gives His Views On Arkansas-Texas Contest You can bet your last dollar. · that Ivan Jordan will be ready ; for the Texas Longhorns this 1 Saturday in Austin, Tex. '. "We held them pretty well in · the first half of the. game last year," the 63, 220-pound junior : from Fort Smith stated, "but they just broke loose on us in ' the second half. We are going to'try our best to not let that happen again." Last year the Hogs went into the dressing room at the half trailing by only 6-0 but the Longhorn Wishbone kept eating away at the young Arkansas defense, finally dealing them 34-6 defeat. "Leaks was a good · runner in that game." , Ivan said, "He just broke loose on us in the second half. This year ' they've got a guy who's supposed to be better than Leaks. Oklahoma Coach (Barry) Swit- · zer said that he never thought '. he would want to have Leaks play against him, but when he ' saw film on Sari Campbell, that · is exactly what he wanted. "Every time you play a Wish · bone team, it tires you but physically on defense because you have to do a lot of chasing '. and pursuing. I think the mosl tired I have ever been was a ' gainst Oklahoma State in 1973 They just ran all over us. SOMETHING TO PROVE "This week we've got fo be ready and in good shape for Texas. This game is really go ing to be a battle, because we vere both beaten last week. Player Released ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Gene Littles, the only holdover guard from last season's squad, was placed on waivers Tuesday, the Spirits of St. Louis announced. The move reduced the Ameri- their backs at mid court, with a basketball in between them. When a coach blows the whistle, the players go after the ball. The one that gets it goes one-on-one to the basket against the other. ___ At one point, roommates Jack AP Wirephoto) Schulte and Daryll Saulsberry wrestled for a full two minutes before Schulte came up w i t h the ball: "That's great, Jack!!" yelled Sulton; ' SHOWS .COURAGE "Someone mentioned that we couldn't fight for the ball like that during the games, and that's right," said Sutton. "But we're trying to find out who wants to play. A,lot. of these kids don't know''what it: takes to,win. Either they'll-get more aggressive or they'll ask themselves if It's really worth it. Today I thought everyone showed a lot of courage." Said assistant coach Gene Ready, "This was one of the Step on the pivot point move."

' The .Razorback-Longhorn clash will be carried on national TV by the ABC Television Network, and the scheduled 3 p.m.. dckoff time may be moved up to noon depending on the status of the World Series. For the first time since 1955 the colorful Arkansas-Texas rivalry has a do-or-die atmosphere, with each team coming into the contest with a loss in Southwest Conference competition. With one.-loss" apiece, both the Hogs and the 'Horns are baring their : :teeth, in-,a fight for survival in ihe Conference chase. Arkansas took its lumps'- in a 21-17 loss to Baylor last weekend to even the Razorbacks' SWC mark at 1-1. Texas was thwarted in its only conference game by Texas Tech two weeks ago. The two have identical 3-2 over-all records. In the previous 16 meetings between the clubs of Arkansas' Frank Broyles.and Texas headmaster Darrell Royal,-the collision of these interstate-powers has had about it the-feeling of Cotton. The winner of the Arkansas-Texas game has gone to the.Cotton Bowl 12 of those 16 years and one time, in 1971, when Arkansas beat Texas 31-7, the loser went. The series record dates back to 1903 with Texas holding a 40-14 lead. The last successful bowing to Baylor last week. : Texas dropped "a.- tough decision to Oklahoma last week after toppling three other non'- conference teams -- Boston {Allege (42-19), Wyoming. (34-2J, and Washington (35-21). Tex Tech upset the Longhorns 2 in Lubbock to throw the fray into a wild scramble. Junior halfback Ike leads the Arkansas statistics in both rushing total offense. The junior halfback has netted 355 yards rusH- ing and four touchdowns. Fre2- die Douglas is the RazorbacKS 1 top receiver. The junior speeji.- ster has hauled in three passg? for a whopping 146 yards ajjd two touchdowns. =· rm trip the Razorbacks made to the Longhorn lair was in 1966 when Arkansas won 12-7. Texas has won the last'two meetings -- by counts of 34-6 in Fayetteville last fall and 35-15 in Austin in 1972. Arkansas' last win was in that 1971 game in Little Rock. This season, the Razorbacks own victories of 22-7 over Southern Cal and 60-0 over Tulsa in nonconference play and a 267 defeat by Oklahoma State.

The last :ime we did that was against Oklahoma State, and you know what happened then," Vie said in reference to the 2(5-7 beating .he Hogs look at the hands of the Cowboys. Jordan added, "I don't think we are out of trie conference race, especially with all the upsets that have been occuring in college football this year. Anybody in our conference is capable of boating any other team on any given weekend. This is good for the conference as a balance and keeps one team whole because it gives us more balance and keeps one t e a m from dominating play every weekend.
