He spent some 12 seasons in the majors. His-7 th inning triple off St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Bob Gibson in Game 7 of the World Series in 1968 broke open a scoreless game and scored both Norm Cash and Willie Horton. The Tigers went on to vin the game 4-1. He also played for the Montreal Expos and Balti- more Orioles. In the '80s and '90s, he worked as a sports- caster with the Pass Sports Network. Detroit pitcher ace Denny EXTRA Innlnp00 by Sol Giarratani McLain who won 31 games in '68 was warming up in the bullpen when Northrup hit that triple and said, "Jimmy didn't want to lose at any- thing. He was even competi- tive at the postgame meal. He was the emotional back- bone of our team that year. He'd get mad at you if he even saw you exchanging pleasantries with guys from the other team. Jimmy was a big reason why we were just a grind-it-out-type of team." Northrup signed with the Tigers in 1960 and was with Detroit until he was traded to Montreal in 1974. He came up to the majors in 1964. In 1,392 games, he hit 153 home runs, drove in 610 RBIs and batted .267 lifetime. He is survived by his wife Patty, five children and seven grandchildren.

The dght is reserved to waive any informality in or reject any or all proposals, MASSACHUSETTS PORT AUTHORITY DAVID S. MACKEY INTERIM CEO AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Run date: 06/24/11 cess new NY Yankees start- ing pitching Bartolo Colon, who missed all of last sea- son and looked finished up. He had surgery back in Latin America and is now pitching like a No. 2 starter behind ace CC Sabathia. Recently, he was injured and is now out for a while. At the time of his injury, he was 5-3 with a 3.10 ERA. Two years ago he tried out for the Sox and stunk to high heaven. I'm starting to wonder if someone came up with a bionic arm for him or per- haps attached a cloned arm of Bob Gibson, the great St. Louis Cardinals starter who had a modern day 1.12 ERA in 1968. Colon won the Cy Young Award back in 2005, but appeared pretty much finished until this year after that unknown medical procedure. Perhaps, Dice K should get the doctor's num- ber from Colon before he has that Tommy John surgery, eh? The Sox are Back on Top The Boston Red Sox have found first place thanks to their dominance over the NY Yankees thus far this sea- son. That slow start is now ancient history. The team's pitching has improved and the offensive power of its heading is a sign of good times. David Ortiz is doing quite well at bat like Big Papi of old. The Yankees are in trouble losing pitchers. The latest being Bartolo Colon.
