f*age Four itOFK (Akk.) STAR Friday, August 23, Hope j*.f Star Sports in Team cuts beg by NFL coaches By ALEX SACHARE AP Sports Writer More than a few paychecks will be on the line in this weekend's National Football league exhibition games. With only three weekends of exhibition action left until the regular season begins, coaches around the league will soon have to do some wholesale roster paring—and this weekend's action will go a long way in determining just who gets pared. Many veterans will get their lu-st extensive game action since reporting to camp under the NFL Players Association's two-week cooling-off period Aug. 14. Most were used sparingly Inst week. For the rookies and free agents who held the fort until the veterans arrived, this could be one last chance to show what they can do. The 14-day strike cooling off period ends Tuesday, but if the veterans do not leave camp then, some of the rookies will have to. Joe Namath is expected to make his debut tonight when the New York Jets visit St. Louis to face the Cardinals. Three games will be nationally televised: Miami, 2-1, at I/js Angeles, 2-1, Saturday on NBC; Buffalo, 2-2, at Minnesota, 0-2, Sunday on CBS, and Detroit, 1-2, at Cincinnati, 3-0, Monday on ABC. Saturday night's other games have the New York Giants, 2-1, at Pittsburgh, 3-0; Philadelphia, 0-3, at Oakland, 3-0; Denver, 2-1, at Green Bay, 3-0; Dallas, 2-1, at New Orleans, 03; New England, 2-1, at San Diego, 2-1; Washington, 0-3, at Cleveland, 1-2, and San Francisco, 0-3 at Kansas City, 1-2. Two other games will be played Monday night: Chicago, 0-3, at Baltimore, 1-1, and Atlanta, 1-2, at Houston, 2-1. Jets Coach Charley Winner will get a chance to beat the team which let him go in tonight's game. He coached the Cardinals from 19(56 through 1970. Although Dennis Shaw threw for two touchdowns and Gary Keithley one in last week's 4814 romp over San Diego, veteran Jim Hart is expected to start at quarterback for St. Baseball Scores National League American League East East St. Louis Philaphia Pittsburgh Montreal New York Chicago W 65 63 63 58 53 50 L 60 61 61 63 67 71 Pet. .520 .508 .508 .479 .442 .413 GB — 1% 1% 5 9% 13 West Los Angeles Cincinnati Atlanta Houston San Fran San Diego 78 75 67 63 56 49 46 50 56 60 69 76 .629 .600 .545 .512 .448 .392 — 3% 10% 14% 22% Boston Cleveland Baltimore New York Milwaukee Detroit 1 W L Pet. 69 61 62 62 60 58 54 59 61 61 64 66 .561 .508 .504 .504 .484 .468 GB 6% 7 7 9% 11% West Oakland Kan City Texas Chicago Minnesota California 71 65 64 60 60 50 29% Thursday's 54 57 62 64 65 75 .568 .533 .508 .484 .480 .400 — , 4% 7% 10% 11 21 Games Thursday's Games No games scheduled Friday's Games New York (Parker 4-11 and Matlack 11-10) at Atlanta (Reed 8-7 and Leon 2-4), 2, N Cincinnati (Billingham 15-8) at Montreal (Walker 2-3), N Philadelphia (Ruthven 6-8) at Houston (Dierker 7-8), N St. Louis (McGlothen 13-8) at Los Angeles (Rau 12-«), N Pittsburgh (Reuss 13-9) at San Diego (Greif yd!4), N Chicago (Stone 5-4) at San Francisco (Caldwell 11-3), N Saturday's Gamca Cincinnati at Montreal Chicago at San Francisco New York at Atlanta, N Philadelphia at Houston, N St, Louis at Los Angeles, N Only games scheduled Sunday's Games New York at Atlanta Cincinnati at Montreal Philadelphia at Houston Pittsburgh at San Diego, Chicago at San Francisco St. Louis at Los Angeles Kansas City 3, Cleveland 1 Texas 6, Baltimore 2 Only games scheduled Friday's Games Kansas City (Busby 18-10 and Briles 3-5) at Milwaukee (Champion 8-2 and Slaton 9-14), 2, N Minnesota (Goltz 6-6) at Baltimore (McNally 11-9), N Oakland (Blue 14-11) at Boston (Tiant 19-8), N Texas (Hargan 9-8) at Detroit (Coleman 10-11),N •California (Lockwood 2-4) at New York (May 5-2), N Cleveland (Peterson 8-8) Chicago (Kaat 13-9), N Saturday's Games California at New York Cleveland at Chicago Texas at Detroit Kansas City at Milwaukee Minnesota at Baltimore, N Oakland at Boston, N Sunday's Games Texas at Detroit Minnesota at Baltimore Oakland at Boston California at New York Cleveland at Chicago Kansas City at Milwaukee at Rangers say this is their year By The Associated Pi-ess Billy Martin, the fiery and sometimes feisty manager of the Texas Rangers, isn't ready yet to talk about next year. After the Rangers beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-2 Thursday night and moved two games over the .500 mark, Martin was asked how much the Rangers needed to become contenders. Martin started to answer, but then cut himself short. "We can make a run at the pennant this year," he said. "We're seven games behind, and we have seven games left with Oakland. We can beat them, too." "Nobody believed me last spring when I said we'd be contenders," Martin recalled. "They all laughed. Maybe they'll listen next time." In the only other American league baseball game Thursday, the Kansas City Royals dropped the Cleveland Indians 3-1. No National League teams were scheduled. Texas, which Martin took over last Sept. 1 after being released by the Detroit Tigers, finished last in the Western Division with a 57-105 record. The team finally seems to have shaken its losing feeling. Pitcher Ferguson Jenkins, new to the American League this season, won his 18th game with two innings of relief from Steve Foucault. Toby Harrah slammed a three-run homer during a five- If fflings go by form, Connors, Smith to meet NEW YORK (AP) - The draw is set for next week's United States Open Tennis Tournament and if form holds up in the early rounds, the semifinals should be something special. If the seeding prevails, Jimmy Connors and Stan Smith, who share the No. 1 men's ranking in this country, will clash in one men's semifinal while Sweden's teen-aged sensation Bjorn Borg and World Championship Tennis king John Newcombe of Australia will meet in the other. Newcombe defeated Borg for the WCT crown. Wimbledon champion Connors will open against Jeff Borowiak of Berkeleyn Calif. Smith, seeded No. 3, starts off against Chilean Jaime Fillol. Newcombe, seeded second, opens against Sweden's Leif Johansson and Borg meets West Germany's Harold Elschen- broich in the first round. Among the women, top-seeded Chris Evert, Connors' fiancee and also a Wimbledon Sports Shorts By The Associated Press TENNIS NEWPORT, R.I. - Chris Evert of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., overcame a second-set scare to post a 6-2, 7-5 quarter-finals victory over Janet Newberry of La Jolla, Calif., in the $30,000 Women's Grass Courts Championships. BROOKLINE, Mass. — Milan Holocek, a self-exiled Czech Teeking American citizenship, provided the only upset in the $100,000 U.S. Professional Tennis Championship by 'beating 12th-seeded Harold Solomon of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. 4-€, 6-3, 7-5.

Also in Miss Evert's division are Australia's Kerry Melville and Yvonne Goola- gong. In the other half of the women's draw, second-seeded Billie Jean King opens with Isabel Fernandez of Columbia. Included in Ms, King's division is Russia's Olga Morozova, who beat her at Wimbledon, and Virginia Wade of Great Britain. The roster of players who will compete at Forest Hills when the tournament gets under way next Wednesday reads like a tennis who's who. Among the men playing in Connors' division is sixth-seeded Tom Okker of the Netherlands, Jan Kodes of Czechoslovakia and Alex Metreveli of Russia. Included in Smith's division are Hie Nastase of Romania, Spain's Manuel Orantes and American Dick Stockton. Arthur Ashe of the United States is in Newcombe's section and Australia's Ken Rosewall and Marty Riessen of the United States are in Borg's division. The $275,000 event offers tennis' richest payoffs with both the men's and women's singles champions collecting $22,500, a $5,000 ring and a new automobile. It also will be an historic tournament, the last one played on grass at the West Side Tennis Club. Charles Tucker, chairman of the Club's Open committee, announced at Thursday's draw that six of the main courts at Forest Hills will be converted to a clay-type surface before the 1975 competition. run rally in the fourth inning which chased Jim Palmer. Dave Nelson singled home another run in the inning off Palmer, last year's Cy Young award winner who earlier spent 54 days on the disabled list and is now 4-9. Jeff Burroughs then recorded his 103rd RBI, off reliever Doyle Alexander. Burroughs, who fanned three times, was ejected after being called out and arguing with an umpire in the ninth. Jenkins allowed three of his six hits in the seventh. Foucault, in his 56th relief appearance, continued his season-long mastery of the Orioles. The Rangers have a 6-3 edge over the Orioles this year and Foucault has been in all six victories. He has allowed eight hits and no runs in 15 2-3 innings, while gaining one victory and four saves against Baltimore. Royals 3, Indians 1 At Cleveland, Kansas City pitcher Paul Splittorff had a shutout going into the ninth in- ningn but the Indians' Joe Lis spoiled it with a solo homer. Splittorff, now 13-12, said he was just happy that the Royals got the win, because it puts them only four-and-a-half games behind the American League's Western Division-leading Oakland A's. Royals Manager Jack McKeon agreed with Splittorff that every win right now is important. "We need every one we can get," McKeon said. "We usually have a rough tune with Cleveland so two-out-of-three here is real good." The Royals scored two runs in the fourth on Amos Otis' two-run homer. It was his 12th of the season. Vada Pinson preceded the shot with a single. Taiwan reaches League final for 4th straight WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Playing almost flawless baseball, the entry from Taiwan once again has reached the finals of the Little League World Series, seeking the island's fourth consecutive championship. Kao Hsiung, the Taiwan entry, won its semifinal game 11-0 Thursday over Tallmadge, Ohio, as pitcher Kao Sun-Teh allowed just one infield single. The team's opponent in Saturday's final game is Red Bluff, Calif., which used three unearned runs in the next to last inning to edge Maracaibo, Venezuela, 4-3.
