Thursday, August 15, Page F l!0l»te (ARK.) Sf Att Hope Star Sports Rangers kept honest by Brewers' alert arms By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer The Texas Rangers died with their boots Wednesday night. They made a lot of base-running mistakes and lost a 6-5 decision to the Milwaukee Brewers. Three of their runners were thrown out trying to steal second, another was out trying to go from first to third on a single and still another was nailed at home. Even an attempt suicide squeeze blew up in the Rangers' faces, "That's the first time I've seen anything like that," said Milwaukee Manager Del Cran- tlall. Milwaukee catcher Darrell Porter was responsible for a lot of the Texas frustration. He threw out the three runners trying to steal, tagged one out sliding home on a great throw from right-fielder Dave May and contributed a big double in the eighth. "It's the best game I've played this year," said Porter. In other American League games, the Minnesota Twins edged the Cleveland Indians 10; the Baltimore Orioles stopped the Chicago White Sox 5-4; the Kansas City Royals whipped the Detroit Tigers 9-1; the California Angels blanked the Boston Red Sox 5-0 and the New York Yankees trimmed the Oakland A's 4-1. Porter doubled home the tying run in the eighth inning and scored on Tim Johnson's pinch single to provide Milwaukee's win. Twins 1, Indians 0 I,ed by the combined four-hit pitching of Joe Decker and Bill Campbell, Minnesota blanked Cleveland. The Twins scored their run in the top of the seventh when Glenn Borgmann hit a fly to deep left field, scoring Bobby Darwin from third. Orioles 5, White Sox \ Brian Downing's run-scoring single in the eighth inning lifted Chicago over Baltimore. Bill Melton, leading off the eighth, was hit by a pitch from Doyle Alexander, 5-9. He was sacrificed to second and scored on Downing's single. Ken Henderson drove in the first three Chicago runs with a first inning single and a two- run homer in the sixth, his 14th. Royals 9, Tigers 1 Steve Busby fired a five-hitter and Kansas City scored six runs in the first inning, three on Tony Solaita's homer, and went on to defeat Detroit. The victory was the Royals' sixth in their last seven outings, while the Tigers have dropped five of their last six. Angels 5, Red Sox 0 Rookie Frank Tanana stopped Boston on seven hits, pitching the California Angels to a 5-0 victory over the Red Sox. Tanana, &-14, hurled his first shutout of the year and his fourth victory in his last five decisions. Yankees 4, A's 1 Elliott Maddox doubled home two runs in a three-run eighth inning, leading New York over Oakland A's. Connors, Evert win 2nd round at Canada TORONTO (AP) - Top-seeded Jimmy Connors elbowed his way through the second round Wednesday in the $130,000 Canadian Open tennis tournament. However, the elbow belonged to Nikki Spear, who was testing his chronic tennis elbow for the second tournament in three months. The 30-year-old Yugoslav won the first set against the American ace, 7-6, after trailing 0-4 in the tie-breaker that decided it, He then went ahead 2-0 in the second before Connors scored 11 consecutive points and took the next five games as Spear's elbow problem became more obvious and forced his withdrawal. Connors appeared relieved by his reprieve. "Nikki hit a lot of good shots. He was hitting a lot of no-pace ball," Connors said. Chris Evert, Connors' 19- year-old fiancee, had a much easier time in continuing her domination of France's Gail Chanfreau, 6-0, 6-2. Miss Evert beat her, 6-0, 6-0, in the finals of last week's United States Clay Court championships at Indianapolis, and Wednesday night's result meant the loser was shut out by the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., whiz for 23 consecutive games. Before the match, Miss Chanfreau complained she wasn't seeded, which meant she would have gone at least two rounds before facing Miss Evert.

In ARKANSAS FOOTBALL magazine, head coach Hutson says "our kids have a lot of a desire This could be a difference." Hopefully, that desire will better their 7-3 record of last year and bring home the 7-AA conference crown. Negotiations resume today By HOWARD SMITH AP Sports Writer Dick Coury, coach of the winless Portland Storm, indulged in a little post-game analysis Wednesday night after watching his team absorb a 28-16 thumping at the hands of the New York Stars. "They beat the devil out of us," said Coury. "We simply do not have a very good football team and we're not improving." New York quarterback Tom Sherman got the Stars rolling early by throwing for two touchdowns and running for another as the Stars built a 30-fl halftime lead. Sherman shared Coury's opinion of the Storm. Elsewhere in the WFL, Birmingham rocked Hawaii 39-0, Chicago shaded Philadelphia 32-29, Florida defeated Jacksonville 33-26 and Memphis whipped Detroit 37-7. Southern California is at Houston in tonight's television game. Sherman completed 11 of 18 passes for 144 yards for New York, including touchdown tosses of 20 and three yards to George Sauer. Sauer hauled in seven passes for 92 yards. The Storm is 0-5-1 while New York has won four straight after dropping the first two. About 14,000 paying fans saw the game. Birmingham 39, Hawaii 0 The Americans, scoring from long range, maintained their position as the WFL's only unbeaten team. Willie ..Smith raced 81 yards on a punt return and George Mira teamed with Alfred Jenkins on a 95-yard pass play for a pair of Birmingham TDs.

(AP) — Ontario Motor Speedway Wednesday announced a five-event "classics" racing schedule for 1974-75, headed by the sixth annual California 500 championship race March 9. Parnelli Jones, speedway president, said it is the first time since the first year of the $30 million facility's operation in 1970 that it has had a full schedule of events. A group headed by Jones and Tony Hulman, owner of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, took over the track in 1973 after it fell into bankruptcy under previous operators. By ALEX SACHARE AP Sports Writer Atlanta's Craig Robinson, hit in the jaw by a pitch from Montreal's Dennis Blair Wednesday night, had more than his mouth bruised by the ball. Although X rays showed that Robinson's jaw was not broken and he was able to return to Atlanta Stadium to see the end of the Braves' 6-1 triumph over the Montreal Expos, he was a very disillusioned young man. "When I was lying there on the ground, there wasn't a thing I liked about major league baseball," said Robinson. "If that's major league baseball, I'm ashamed of it and don't want any part of it." Immediately before Robinson was hit, Dusty Baker had slammed a three-run homer off Blair and Dave Johnson had hit a solo homer. Then in the ninth, with the Braves holding a five-run lead and two out, Braves pitcher Carl Morton (who had just hit Tim Foli). received a warning and an automatic $50 fine. Elsewhere in the National League, New York trimmed Los Angeles 3-2, San Francisco beat Philadelphia 6-4, Chicago edged Houston 6-5, Cincinnati nipped Pittsburgh 3-2 in 10 innings and St. Louis defeated San Diego 5-1. Morton, 12-7, scattered eight hits to give the Braves their sixth consecutive victory, Atlanta's longest winning streak of the season. Hank Aaron's two-run homer in the seventh capped Atlanta's scoring. It was his 16th home run of the season and 729th GI his career. Giants 6, Phils 4 Bobby Bonds' 17th home run of the season, a two-run shot with two out in the ninth, gave the Giants the victory over PRACTICE IS SERIOUS BUSINESS as seen in these players' stance. James Robinson, Slick Davis, Bobby Jones and Tim Boyd are competing for spots in the offensive and defensive backfield.

Ashe says winners can be predicted in Buckeye tennis By GEORGE STRODE AP Sports Writer COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — To Arthur Ashe, tennis is still one of the most formful sports. "You can take any two guys here and I can tell you eight of 10 times who will win before they play," said the top seed of the Buckeye Tennis Championships. "You can go through the entire draw and predict almost every winner," Ashe said Wednesday after eliminating New Zealand's Jeff Simpson, 61, 6-4 in an opening round match. ported to training camps Wednesday under terms of a 14-day cooling off period. Player representative Preston Pearson led Pittsburgh's returning veterans with handshakes and smiles punctuating the atmosphere at the Steelers' training camp. "I don't think it got as emotional here as it did with some teams," said running back John Fuqua. In Baltimore, 18 Colts veterans showed up only to be turned away by Coach Howard Shnellenberger, who claimed logistical problems. "We can't handle this many players right now," he said. "We have to get rooms ready and thins like that." The Colts were told to come back later in the week but that's better than what happened to some other veterans, who were sent away for keeps. New England placed quarterback Brian Dowling on waivers, sold tackle Jim Callier to Chicago and purchased punter Dave Lewis from Cincinnati. Lewis had refused to report to the Bengals. Defensive end Carter Campbell of the New York Giants, who also said he wouldn't report until the strike was settled, was traded to Cleveland for tight end Chip Glass. San Francisco swapped tight end Dick Witcher and wide receiver John Isenbarger to Chicago for kick retur er Cecil Turner. Cleveland also traded offensive linemen Bob Briggs and Bubba Pena to Kansas City. Wicher, Isenbarger, Glass, Campbell and Dowling all have signed future contracts with the rival World Football League, Larry Csonka and Jim Kiick, two-thirds of Miami's celebrated trio of WFL jumpers, showed up at the Dolphins' camp. The third jumper, wide receiver Paul Warfield, was the lone missing Dolphin. "The cooling off period indicates to me they've gotten pretty close to a settlement," said Csonka. "I'm looking forward to staying in camp. As it stands right now, I can see no possibility of a walkout in 14 days." Mike Phipps, quarterback of the Cleveland Browns, agreed. "I can't speak for any of the other players," he said, "but I'm here to stay. I think it's about time to play football." Quarterback Joe Namath was among the New York Jets reporting vets and no sooner had he declared himself ready for Saturday's exhibition against the Giants than Coach Charlie Winner said Al Woodall would be playing. "It's not fair to expect him to be ready," said Winner of Namath. Houston General Manager^id Gillman cut seven Oiler vets including linebacker Paul Guidry, who had driven 26 hours from Buffalo to report. Quarterback Edd Hargett, another WFL future, was told by Gillman not to work out with the Oilers and that he would be traded.
