RyCa1 hurls no-hit gem
From Wire Service Reports
Ryan, the fireball hurler
that the New York Mets
had given up for mediocre,
threw a no-hitter last night
against the Kansas City
Royals as the California
Angels triumphed 3-0.
Ryan, who whiffed 12 Royal
batsmen en route to his fifth
victory of the year, walked
three Kansas City men in hurl-
ing his gem. The game was in
marked contrast to Ryan's last
tarn daring which the Chicago
White Sax dispatched him to the
showers in the very first inning.
B-seball's -i-"h hitter is Ois-
secte-1 and b-sketbll's "S'tch"
Sanders is noted on page 11.
IN THE THIRD inning, the
Royals said they were nlaying
the game under protest. Kansas
City M-nag'r Jack McKeon con-
tended Ryan was not keening his
right foot on the nitchingrubber
as he made his delivery.
The Rovals never serio'isly
threatened to break tn the no-
hitter until the eighth inning
-when G-il Honkies, ninch-hitting
for ctcher Carl Taylor, punched
the ball into short center field.
But Rudy Meoli raced out from
his short ston position and caught
the' ball easily.
THE NINTH WAS a relatively
simple frame for the right-hand-
er as he retired Fred Patek on
a foul to first, Steve Hovely
swinging on a three-two count
and Amos Otis on a deep fly to
Ryan never hnd a chance for
the coveted perfect game as
he issued a free pass to Hovely
in the first stanza of the game.
In all the Royal hit -ten balls to
the outfield, not incliding Hop-
kins' soft liner, with the longest
beipg the drive by Otis that end-
ed the game.
RYAN HAD FLIRTED with
the classic no-hit performance
numerous times by pitching a
pair of one-hitters and four two
hitters in his seven year m'jor
TOMMY HUTTON, Philadelphia's successor to Dick "Dr. Strangeglove" Stuart at first, slides into second in yesterday's contest with the

NEW YORK-Willie Mays, baseball's aging superstar, indi-
cated yesterday that this year is his last of active service. Mays
did not, however, say when the retirement would become final.
Willie, who is on the 15 day disabled list, said that he will wait
until he comes off the list and tries again before making any
SAN DIEGO-Although he can direct his athletes to warn
youngsters about the evils of drugs, Football Commissioner Pete
Rozelle is apparently unable to police his own domain, according
to testimony given in the Hotiston Ridge case revealed in the
San Diego Union yesterday..
In his testimony, Rozelle gave a series of reasons for not
ordering an investigation into player drug use:
-Giving examinations to players would "possibly constitute
an invasion of privacy" and might hamper the relationship be-
tween players and the team doctor."
--"The problem of enforcing rules for 26 different clubs
spread all over the U.S., in this very unique area, we found to
-"You have varying medical opinions today and in the past
on the use of various drugs."
-Auditing club drug records "would be a tremendous

By all rights, Michigan pitchers
should have hurled two shut-outs
in yesterday's non conference
doubleheader with the Broncos
of Western Michigan. Pete Helt
pitched his third of the season
in the first half of the double dip
limiting the Broncos to just five
base runners and easily won 2-0.
And Pete Ross, the Wolverines'
Sparky Lyle, was giving it a go
in the second game, leading four
BUT NO ONE counted on what
happened in the wild fifth inning.
The Broncos had men on first
and second with one away and
first sacker Tom Vanderberg
stepping to the plate. Vander-
berg, swinging from the left side
of the plate, took Ross' first
pitch and sent down the foul line
deep to right. Right fielder Mike
DeCou went over to the line, but
stopped when he saw that the
ball was going to carry out of
Ray Fischer Field foul.
Everybody else thought that it
did. Vanderberg had slowed up
and the .two Bronc runners did
likewise. Everyone thought it had

feet to the right of the line, but

THE WOLVERINES, who had
been aided by two first inning
errors, including an errant throw
into a dugout by Bronco center-
fielder Mark Orr were- able to
stave off a Bronco threat in the

ers came out of the pen to strike
out the last two Broncos. Rogers
got a boost from Nordquist, who
branded what seemed to be a low
