Sports of The Daily
"June Swoons" have plagued the San Francisco Giants
throughout their baseball history but this year the swoon has
started a month early. The Giants, riding on top of the NL West
for most of the season have already been upstaged by the pow-
erful Houston Astros, who led the San Francisco club by one game
prior to last night's nationally televised encounter. Ed Brink-
man, of all people, leads the American League in triples with
four . . . Lefty-swinging Ron Blomberg of the Yankees doesn't
get to face many southpaws but he certainly is tearing up AL
righthanders. "The Boomer" has rapped out 22 hits in his last
44 at bats and raised his batting average to .370.
A few notes on the hardcourts graced our wire yesterday-
All-American Ernie DiGregorio signed with the NBA Buffalo
Braves for a cool $1 million . .-. Immortal L. A. Laker Jerry
West ended the speculation that he was going to retire by an-
nouncing that he would play another season with the Lakers
... and one you all were waiting for, the San Antonio ABA fran-
chise has been officially dubbed the "Spurs".
Are they kidding
INDINAPOLIS-The American Basketball Association cham-
pion Indiana Pacers Monday challenged NBA runner-up Los
Angeles to a post-season showdown.
The Pacers earlier issued the same challenge to the New
York Knicks, who dethroned the Lakers in the NBA finals this
year, but the Knicks declined.
On tab.. . .
The Tigers will face the equally unimpressive, floun-
dering, inconsistent, fumbling, disappointing, pennant-con-
tending New York Yankees at Tiger Stadium tonight at
8:05. Mel Stottlemyre will hurl for the Bombers against
Bengal Woody Fryman.
