Page Knur HOPK (AHK.) STAR Thursday. August 29, Hope Star Sports At forest Hills' U.S. Open Morozova will try despite twisted ankle FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP) — Olga Morozova is agonizinc over a badly - spained left ankle, but is in ecstacy over her No. 3 seeding for today's opening of women's play in the U.S. Open tennis championships. "I'll play," said the dark- haired Russian. "How well I will play I don't know, but I will try. I won't withdraw." Mrs. Morozova, who upset Millie Jean King at Wimbledon before bowing to Chris Evert in the final, twisted her ankle try- ing to run for a ball in the semifinals last week of the Women's Grass Court Championships at Newport Casino in Rhode Island. The Soviet ace, whose ankle is laced with tape, drew Martina Navratilova of Czechoslovakia a.s her first-round opponent. Mrs. Morozova, seeded eighth here last year and a third- round loser to Helga Masthoff, would like nothing more than a chance at top-seeded Chris Evert in the finals this time. The luck of the draw could give her the rematch of Wimbledon's final — if her ankle doesn't let her down and she can get past second-seeded Billie Jean, likely to be her quarter-finals opponent. Miss Evert, meanwhile, will keep her record of never playing a U.S. Open singles match anywhere except in center court when she opens today's play against Gail Chanfreau of France. She also will be trying to extend her current string of 52 straight matches without a Hunter wins 20th game for 3rd straight year By ALEX SACHARE AP Sports Writer Catfish Hunter has been a 20- game winner in each of the past three seasons, and" Wednesday night the ace right- hander of the Oakland A's joined that select circle once again with a 3-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. Hunter joined Boston's Luis Tiant as the only 10-game winners in the majors on the strength of a pair of home runs by Reggie Jackson. Jackson's first homer of the night, a 420-foot shot into the right-center-field bullpen leading off the seventh inning against Jim Colborn, 8-11, gave Hunter a 2-1 lead. Jackson then led off the ninth with his 26th of the year, a booming 450-foot blast to right. ' Hunter, 20-10, got ninth-inning relief help from Paul Lindblad and Rollie Fingers in posting his sixth victory in his last seven decisions. The victory boosted the A's lead in the American I/eague West to 5M> game over the second-place Kansas City Royals. Elsewhere in the American league, Cleveland beat Kansas City 7-1, New York blanked Minnesota 5-0, Detroit edged California 2-1, Texas tripped Baltimore 4-2 and Chicago shut out Boston 3-0.

Mcilone signs pro contract with Stars WASHINGTON (AP) — Moses Malone has finally signed a contract to play for the Utah Stars of the American Basketball Association, so sources say, ending a three- ring circus that began in Petersburg, Va., this spring, about the time the superstar was about to graduate from high school. Malone, who lingered on the threshold of indecision for several days before signing, a grant-in-aid to attend the University of Maryland, again kept reporters by the hundreds guessing while he considered whether to become the first youth ever to bypass college, going straight from schoolboy basketball to the pros. Malone, according to an official of the University of Maryland who preferred to remain anonymous, late Wednesday affixed his signature to a luce- ative contract offered by the ABA club. The timing and setting of the signing was every bit as dramatic as the months of maneuvering by hundred of college coaches who had coveted the services of the lean, 6-foot-ll, athlete. Shreveport edges by Victoria in Texas League By The Associated Press Shreveport managed to edge past Victoria and take an llth inning victory 8-7 Wednesday night in the Texas League. Dan Thomas' single sent Dave Lindsey home from third base with the winning run. Lindsey drew a walk from losing pitcher Steve Simpson (107) and moved to third on Kent Jacobson's double. The Toros scored five runs in a fifth inning highlighted by a two-run single by Ron Diggle and a two-run double by Brock Temberton. Dennis Yard, now 5-7, pitched y 2-3 innings to win in relief. In the only other games Midland crushed El Paso 12-3. Rain forced postponements for Amarillo at San Antonio and Arkansas at Alexandria.

The win was the sixth in a row for the East Division leaders. The Pirates look a 1-0 lead in the third on successive one-out singles by Rennie Stennett, Richie Hebner and Al Oliver, with Oliver extending his hitting streak to 21 games. San Francisco tied it in the bottom of the third when Garry Maddox singled, Gary Thomasson walked, the runners pulled a double steal and Gary Matthews sent Maddox home with a grounder. In Wednesday night's other National League games, the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated Chicago 7-6, the Houston Astros edged New York 3-2 in 10 in- ninas. the Atlanta Braves beat Montreal 4-2 and the St. Louis Cardinals downed San Diego 5- Reds 4, Phils 3 Teify Crowley's run-scoring double in the eighth inning carried Cincinnati's redhot Reds to a 4-3 victory over the sinking Philadelphia Phillies.

His half-swing hit rocketed between center and right field and Chancy scored from first to give the Reds their ninth victory in the last 11 games, within three games of first-place Los Angeles in the West. Dodgers 7, Cubs 6 Bill Madlock's pinch-hit grand slam gave Chicago an eighth-inning tie — but Willie Crawford's sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth gave the Dodgers the victory. Steve Garvey's fifth single of the game started the ninth and Ron Cey was safe at first when pitcher Oscar Zamora fumbled his bunt. Joe Ferguson sacrificed the runners up a base and Von Joshua was walked intentionally to load the bases before Crawford batted for Bill Russell and hit his game-winning fly ball) giving reliever Mike Marshall the victory. Astros 3, Mets 2 Cliff Johnson's two-out home run in the 10th inning that powered the Astros past New York was Johnson's fifth as a pinch hitter, equalling Joe Cronin's 1943 American League record and putting Johnson within one of the major league mark of six, set by Donnie Frederick of the 1932 Brooklyn Dodgers.

Youngsters take over at golf's U.S. Open By RICHARD T. PIENCIAK AP Sports Writer RIDGEWOOD, N.J. (AP) — Fifty-one-year-old Bill Campbell calls it "Black Thursday." But young players like NCAA champ Curtis Strange, Florida Amateur titlist Doug Pate and Porter Cup winner George Burns consider it just another day. Ed Tutwiler, 55, who called it "the Endurance Test," won't be around for today's double- round action at the 74th U.3. Amateur Golf Championship — he said goodbye on Wednesday. So did veterans Dick Siderowf and Vinnie Giles. Today the boys at the Ridgewood Country Club started the real test of stamina and nerves. Since Monday the action has consisted of one match-play round per day. But fourth- round play was to be held this morning and the fifth round was to begin after a short lunch break. On Friday, double rounds will be held again on the 6,754-yard, par-71 course. The two finalists will meet in a 36-hole match play contest on Saturday. It's been hot and humid all week at the North Jersey tournament site. Many of the players feel the weather will be a major factor in the eventual outcomem But no one feels the weather can hurt as much as poor driving and putting. Tutwiler lost 1 up to Pate, a zu-year-old University of Alabama student from Pensacola, Fla. The 19-year-old Strange, a Wake Forest sophomore from Virginia Beach, won the West- ern, the Virginia State Amateur — both match-play events — and hasn't lost a match-play encounter this year. Burns doesn't draw any conclusions from the longer day. "It's the same course and conditions for everyone, said the husky 25-year-old Port Washington, N.Y., beverage salesman. Campbell an insurance agent from Huntington, W.Va., who won this event in 1964, got a taste of the long day on Tuesday when he went 25 holes before beating Warren Coates of Williamsport, Pa., 1 up. On Wednesday, the 14-time West Virginia Amateur titlist had an easier time, knocking off Jed Jennings of Redmond, Wash., 4 and 3.
