"We need him," the Royals manager said with furrowed brow. "He's got to be a good pitcher for us."

New York at Los Angeles, (n) By Ken H arre U Emporia State locked up the home-field advantage for next week's District 10 tournament by sweeping Benedictine 6-0 and 6-0 here Monday behind the pitching of Gary Pickert and Ben Bounous. The sweep gives E-State an 8-0 record in the eastern zone of the district with only two zone games to go. Every other team in the eastern zone has at least three zone losses. The eastern zone winner, which will be E-State, earns the right to be host for the district playoffs. Those playoffs are scheduled to start next Thursday and will involve four teams, two from the eastern zone and two from the western zone. The District 10 winner goes on to the Area Three playoffs. Emporia State also set a school record for wins Monday, as it moved to 34-7 with the sweep. The old record for wins in one season at E-State was 33. The 1971 club finished at 33-19 and the 1975 team ended at 33-16. Mike Warren set an individual record with three stolen bases against Benedictine. He now has 31 for the season, eclipsing the old record of 29 swiped by Terry Hill in 197-1. Hill got a good view of his record being broken as he is currently the E-State third base coach. The Benedictine doubleheader opened a hectic week, thelastof the regularseason, for the Hornets. Today they are hosting Central Missouri in a pair of games. Wednesday they move on to Baker to finish district zone play, and then Saturday and Sunday they are at Fort Hays and Kearney State to end Central States Conference play. E-State coach Dave Bingham thinks a busy week is just what his team needs. He felt the Hornets, except for the pitchers, were stale Monday after a six- day" layoff. "We weren't very «,• impressive," Bingham said '•fatter the sweep, "we weren't hitting the ball like we can." In the opener, E-State left eight men on base, even though it did rap out 11 hits. The top of the order did most of the hitting, with Darrell Alexander and Warren each getting three safeties and Fred Hernandez driving in two runs with a single and a sacrifice fly. In the nightcap the Hornets had six hits, but at least half of those should have been outs. The Benedictine right fielder, though, couldn't find the baseball in the sun or solve the tricky breeze, and flies turned into extra-base hits. Kansas City Picks Cornerback Green KANSAS CITY (AP) — With a big smile on his face, Kansas City Chiefs Coach Paul Wiggin said today that in Gary Green, "we've got the premier corner- back of the year." Green, a 5-11, 184-pound scholar-athlete from Baylor, was taken by the Chiefs as their No. 1 pick in the first round. "Besides his great athletic ability, he has class and leadership, and he will be a great kick returner," Wiggin said. The Chiefs were known to be highly interested in defensive tackle Mike Butler of Kansas, who was snapped up by Green Bay just ahead.of the Chiefs' pick, which was the 10th selection of the first round. Neither Pickert or Bounous needed much help. Pickert was overpowering in the first game as he struck out 14 in the seven innings. He sacttered four hits and four walks during the shutout and is now 9-1. , Bounous allowed just two hits in the second game. He wasn't far from a no-hitter, as one of Benedictine's hits was a blooper to right that Steve Gillies dived for and got a glove on but couldn't control and the other was a bad hop single over Fred Riesgo's glove at third. Bounous struck out six and walked three in moving his record to 9-2. And on the matter of records, he has now won 29 games during his E-State career, three more than any other pitcher in the school's history. The Hornets pushed four runs across in the second inning of the opener. Riesgo reached on an error, Steve Gillies walked, then Mike Gehrer, Frank Trujillo, Alexander and Warren all singled for the runs. In the fourth, Alexander and Warren again each singled, and after an overthrow at second Hernandez brought Warren in with a sacrifice fly to give E-State a 5-0 lead. Warren doubled and Hernandez singled for the sixth run in the sixth. The Hornets scored three runs in the second inning of the nightcap without getting a hit. Those three runs were the result of four walks and" two throwing errors by the Benedictine catcher. E-State scored a single run in the fifth on an error, walk and a single by John Upshaw. The Hornets then scored two in the sixth on a double to right by Trujillo, a triple to right by Alexander and a sacrifice fly by Hernandez. Greg Rogers, the regular E-State designated hitter, did not play in the doubleheader. He was struck in the eye by. a ground ball in practice Friday 'and was still recuperating Mori- day. Darrel Kaufman, the regular right fielder, also sat out again because of a groin injury. Jeff Purcell is also going to miss a turn on the mound because of a sore arm.

The Seattle Seahawks, picking second, traded their selection to Dallas, as rumored, and the Cowboys took Heisman Trophy winner Tony Dorsett, the most prolific ground-gainer in history, who led the University of Pittsburgh to the national championship. In return for giving up its first-round pick, Seattle received Dallas' first-round choice—No. 14 over-all—and three second-round selections, giving the Seahawks five picks in the first 54. Bell walked into the packed ballroom at the Hotel Roosevelt seconds after his name was announced and strode to the microphone displaying a Tampa Bay jersey with a white No. 42, his uniform number in ctllege. "I waited a year-and-a-half for this day," Bell said. "I've got the ability to play in the NFL. There's no question in my mind. This is the biggest challenge of my life and the biggest challenge of the team's life to establish a winning trend. "We can't do any worse than we did last year unless they expand the schedule to 16 games. Then we could go 0-1G." Bell referred to Tampa'Bay's 0-14 record last year ¡n its initial season of NFL play, the worst mark in the league's history. The Cincinnati Bengals, using a pick acquired from Buffalo jn the Sherman White deal, went for Eddie Edwards, an All- American defensive tackle from the University of Miami. In rapid-fire succession, the New York Jets, who had hoped to get Dorsett, chose Marvin Powell, an offensive tackle from Southern California, and the New York Giants selected Powell's Southern Cal teammate, defensive tackle Gary Jeter, -¿r -¿r * Olpe Wins Crown OLPE — Because of wet grounds in Hartford, the Hartford Invitational baseball tournament was switched to Olpe Monday and pipe went on the title too.' . .
