WEB GEMS- Top 4th: Bobby Bonds robbed Doyle Alexander of an extra base hit.

 

Ron Cey hit one over the fence and had 3 RBI at Yankee Stadium as the Topeka

Sizzlers came back dramatically to top the Jersey Rattlers by the score of 9

to 8.

 

Topeka came through with the game-winning runs in the 9th inning with 2 runs

using 2 hits.  Gorman Thomas started the inning off right when he laced a

one-base hit.  Two outs later Cey came up and he bombed a two-run dinger (his

1st of the season).  Both teams ended up with 14 on the afternoon. 

 

The victory was credited to Ross Grimsley(1-0) who went 1 and 1/3 innings,

allowing no runs. Rollie Fingers earned his 1st save.  The loss was charged

to Kent Tekulve(0-1) in relief. 

 

After the game, it took a long while before Jim Minugh emerged from his

office.  In a subdued tone he answered only a couple of questions.  He

concluded with, 'Fellows, sorry I'm not in a very talkative mood this

afternoon, as I think you'll understand.  I'm sure you'll find the banter a

lot more light-hearted over in the Topeka locker room.'

comeback win over the Topeka Sizzlers by the count of 4 to 3.

 

Jersey had the game winning rally in the bottom of the 9th inning with 2 runs

utilizing 3 base hits.  Chris Chambliss led off the inning for Jersey when he

doubled.  Two outs later Joe Torre came up and he delivered a one-base hit

scoring a run.  Torre took second on the throw.  Fred Patek then delivered a

single making Jersey victorious to the delight of the the home town crowd.

Jersey finished with 8 hits in the victory.

Tanana(0-2) was given the loss.  He allowed 8 hits and 2 walks in 8 and 2/3

Jim Minugh was in great spirits in his post-game interview.  Yet, when asked

about his feelings after the thrilling comeback victory, he volunteered,

'I'll tell you this much - I know how my counterpart, Mike Tricarico, feels

right now - and it's not very good.  It's terrible when you come up on the

short end of one of these!'

At Gilmore Park, the Santa Fe faithful were treated to an intriguing pitcher's

duel.  Frank Tanana(1-0) finally bested his Santa Fe counterpart, Gary

Nolan(0-1), by the score of 3 to 0.

 

Tanana contributed a very nicely pitched game.  He was stingy on the mound,

allowing just 9 hits and 1 walk in 8 and 2/3 innings.  Neither team managed

to score after the 1st inning. 

 

Tanana was helped out by Ross Grimsley who recorded his 1st save.  Nolan

absorbed the loss.  He allowed 7 hits and no walks in 8 innings.

First baseman Steve Garvey went deep as the Topeka Sizzlers won a dandy at

County Stadium over the Santa Fe Rustlers, 4 to 3.

 

The game was decided in the bottom of the 9th inning.  Dave Winfield was hit

by a pitch.  Darrell Porter was a strikeout victim, unable to help out.

Winfield got a great jump and stole second easily.  Frank Taveras was up next

and he drew a walk.  Rob Sperring came to the plate and delivered a single

resulting in a mighty exciting win for Topeka and the 3,374 home town fans in

attendance.  Topeka had 8 hits for the afternoon. 

 

The winning pitcher was Gene Garber(2-0) who allowed no runs in 2 innings.

Steve Renko(0-1) was given the loss in relief.  He allowed 1 run and 1 hit in

2/3 of an inning.
