1'Yiday. August Ifi, Page Four Had lost 6 in row HOt'K (AUK.) STAR Perry breaks losing streak By KEN RAPPOPORf AP Sports Writer Gaylord Perry's on a winning streak ... one in a row. Earlier in the baseball season, that would have been a joke. But it isn't now to the Cleveland Indians' pitcher. Perry, who won 15 straight in one stretch this year, was on a six-game losing streak before Thursday night's 4-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins. In the only other American League game, the Baltimore Orioles nipped the Chicago While Sox 2-1, And in the only National league game, the Chicago Cubs beat the Houston Astros 5-3. "I've never had any doubts in my ability to pitch," said Perry, who hadn't won a game since .July 3. "I've felt great all along. I've just been in a slump." At one juncture of the season, the two-time Cy Young winner had a dazzling 15-1 record. Now, it's a more modest 16-7. "That's the longest slump I've ever had and it has been the hardest one," Perry noted. He was taken out of Thursday night's game after walking the leadoff baiter in the eighth inning. He had given up just five hits. "I didn't want to come out," Perry said. "But you can't say it was a bad move from the way it worked out." Frank Duffy's two-run single provided Perry with his winning runs. With the score tied 1-1 and two out in the Cleveland sixth, John Ellis doubled. Minnesota starter Bert Blyleven, 11-14, then . walked Oscar Gamble and Tom McCraw to load the bases and set the stage for Duffy's single to left. The Indians scored an insurance run in the eighth on McCraw's sacrifice fly. Orioles 2, White Sox 1 Karl Williams and Paul Blair walloped home runs in support of Mike Cuellar's six-hit pitching as Baltimore beat Chicago. The Orioles failed to score in the third after loading the bases with one out, but Wil- Connors won't join Chris in finals TORONTO (AP) — Lalely it has seemed thai Chris Everl and Jimmy Connors were inseparable, bolh in and out of the winners circle. Both tennis slars won al Wimbledon and both won the U.S. Clay Courts at Indianapolis. But an unheralded Spaniard, Juan Gisberl, finally came between Ihe two slars in Ihe $130,000 Canadian Open tennis championships. Gisberl loppled the top-ranked Connors 7-6, 6-2 Thursday in Ihird-round compelilion, while Miss Evert continued on with an imposing 6-fl, 6-0 victory over Laurie Tenney. Connors said that at times during the match he "seemed lo lose interest a little bit in the match." It was Connors' ground strokes that got him into difficulty. In the tiebreaker that decided the opening set, Connors hit five backhands into the net. "It's not so important now," Connors said. "I've won the Wimbledon title and I'm relaxed and loose." Gisbert was ecstatic after beating the top-ranked pro from Belleville, 111. "It was one of the biggest wins of my career," said Gisbert. "My game was steady. I did not expect to beat him." Miss Evert's victory came after she had lost only two games in winning her Wednesday match. Jeanne Evert joined her more-heralded older sister in Baseball Scores By The Associated Press advancing by beating Paulina Peisachov of Israel 6-4, 6-2 while American Julie Heldman also won, defeating Racquel Giscafre of Argentina 6-2, 6^0. Others playing today after winning Thursday were Manuel Orarites, Hans Pohman, Tom Okker, Harold Solomon, Bjorn Borg and Guillermo Vilas.

I'd have to find something else to do." New York Stars up for safe NEW YORK (AP) — You can reach for the Stars now. The New York Stars of the World Football League reportedly are up for sale. "I wouldn't doubt that the club is for sale," noted Bob Keating, general manager of the team. "There have been overtures from buyers since he (Bob Schmertz) bought the club." Keating responded Thursday to a report in The New York Posl lhat a "for sale" sign was hung oul on the financially-plagued WFL club. The newspaper, quoting an "unidentified" WFL source, said Schmertz, who also operates the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association, would sell the Stars for $6 million to a person described California Suns corral Texans for win in WFL By MICHAEL A. LUTZ AP Sports Writer HOUSTON (AP) - The Soulhern California Sun became Ihe star atlraclion of Ihe World Football League's Wesl- ern Division loday afler stealing a few lines from the Houston Texans' defensive script Thursday night. The Texans entered the game as Ihe top defensive team in the WFL and held a one-half game lead over the Sun in the Western Division. But the Sun defense victimized substitute quarterback Don Trull with two interceptions, one a 66-yard touchdown return by Durwood Keelon, lo defeal Ihe Texans 18-7 before 31,227 in Ihe Astrodome and a nalional television audience, "I knew I was gone when I got it," said Keeton, whose interception return with 24 seconds left in the fourth quarter iced the game for the Sun. "Heck, there wasn't anybody there but me. I knew Ihey had to stop the clock by going deep or for the quick out. "I told (Jim) Bowman to go deep and I went for the quick out. I'll have to credil Coach (Ed) Cody for teaching me how to pick off the quick out pattern." Houston, which dropped to a 2-3-1 record, led 7-0 at the half on a 51-yard touchdown bomb from quarterback Mike Taliaferro to John Odom, who grabbed the ball between two Sun defenders. Safety Jack Conners grabbed Houston's first punt of the third quarter on his own 10 and raced 90 yards for the tying touchdown. Taliaferro left the game in the second quarter with a cut over his left eye thai required six stitches. He had completed six of eight passes for 117 yards, including five of five in the first quarter. Trull finished the game. Conners left the game with a dislocated elbow and may be out three or four weeks. Texan running back Warren McVea, who joined the team last Saturday, ran one play and sustained broken ribs. as fairly well known outside of sports. The Stars have been a hit on the field but less than a smash al Ihe box office. Even if Ihey sold oul every one of their 10 home games in Downing Stadium (seating capacily: 27,000), they would lose $1 million their firsl year in Ihe infanl league, an official reporls. But the Stars have not done especially well drawing fans al the archaic stadium on Randall's Island. Wednesday nighl was a good example. Only 16,222 fans, including 2,310 in on free and discounl lickets, watched the Slars beal Ihe Portland Slorm 38-16. The first major goal of the learn is to make it through the WFL's first two years, then move into a refurbished Yankee Stadium. Schmertz has been plagued recently by financial problems. His major asset, Leisure Technology, a land development firm,has dropped drastically in value. He recently lost a $3.75 million lawsuil in conneclion with the Celtics and, before that, sold his ownership in the New England Whalers of the World Hockey Association. His total worth reportedly has dropped from $25 million to $9 million.
