Tour HOPF-; (ARK.) STAR Friday, August SO, Hope Star Sports But still comes out with win Cards' Curtis misses no-hitter by one By BRUCE IX)WITT AP Sports Writer John Curtis, the St. I/ouis Cardinals' 2&-year-old left-hand- er, came within one pitch of the third no-hitter this year and the first in the National league. But that one pilch rocketed off the bat of San Diego's Fred Kendall in the eighth inning and wrecked not only the no- hitter but the shutout as well. Fortunately, Jim Dwyer and Mike Ty^on got a couple of hits when they really counted and gaVe Curtis an 8-12 record and the Cards a 3-1 victory over the Padres Thursday night. Jn the ninth, Bake McBride, Ken Heitx, Dwyer and Tyson hit successive two out singles to move the Cards within half a game of first-place Pittsburgh in the National I-eague East. In other National League games, Ixxs Angeles beat Chi- Malone may bring in new era NEW YORK (AP) - First, there was the George Mikan era of pro basketball. Then came the period beginning with Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain. They were followed by Lew Alcindor, now known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Now it's Bill Walton — and possibly Moses Malone. The big difference between Malone and the other dominant centers is that they attended college before turning pro and he did not. Cards 9 no-hitter Padres break up SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Padres are in last place but catcher Fred Kendall has had the satisfaction this season of breaking up two no-hitters in the late innings. . "He hit a good pitch. It was where I wanted it," St. Louis left-hander John Curtis, 8-12, conceded Thursday night after the Padre catcher singled home a game-tying run with two out in the eighth inning of a game the Cardinals won in the ninth, 3-1, on run-scoring singles by Jim Dwyer and Mike Tyson. "It was a fastball inside and I guess I was looking for it," said Kendall, whose sharp hit went through the left side of the infield to score Dave Winfield. Curtis retired the first 21 batters to face him but lost his bid for a perfect game when he walked Winfield to open the eighth.

Dodgers 3, Cubs 1 Andy Messersrnith and Mike Marshall combined to three-hit the Cubs and give the Dodgers their fifth straight victory to widen their lead in the National league West to 3% games over Cincinnati. Messersmilh held Chicago hitless until rookie Pete LaCock led off the seventh inning with his first major league homer. Mets 7, Astros 0 The Mets snapped Dave Roberts' 26-inning scoreless streak Birmingham wins over Chicago in WFL action CHICAGO (AP) — Except for getting "a little greedy" near the end of the first half, Jack Gotta thought his Birmingham Americans played a near-perfect game Thursday night when they turned back the Chicago Fire 22-8 in a piviotal World Football League game. "There's no doubt that this was a big game for us," said Gotta. "It was against a team in our division and in their own backyard." The victory enabled the undefeated Americans, who boosted their record to 8-0, to open a two-game gap over the Fire which had to settle back .to a tie for second with Memphis at 6-2. "It might have been our best defensive effort of the season," said Gotta. "We played a good team and might have shut them out if we hadn't gotten a little greedy." The Americans got "a little greedy" near the end of the first half. They were leading 140 on a two-yard touchdown run by Jim Edwards and a 19-yard touchdown pass from George Mira to Paul Robinson. With less than a minute to go in the first half, Matthew Reed went in to throw a bomb only to have Harry Howard intercept. Fire quarterback Virgil Carter went into action and completed three straight passes for 65 yards in 27 seconds capped by a 28-yard scoring aerial to Jim Scott. Carter then hit Jack Dolbin with the action point to cut Birmingham's lead to 14-8 and put the Fire back into the game before a hopeful home crowd of 44,732. Still, the Americans never panicked and after a scoreless third quarter, they marched 66 yards in nine plays late in the game to clinch it on a three- yard run by Art Cantrelle. Cantrelle, out of Louisiana State and formerly of the Canadian League, set up his own touchdown with runs of six and 22 yards. The Americans rushed 46 tunes for 212 net yards while the Fire had only 18 attempts for 70 yards.

They added three more runs in the third, then scored their final three in the sixth off reliever Jim York. Giants 3, Pirates 2 Dave Kingman drove in two San Francisco runs with a fourth-inning homer and an llth-inning single that beat the Pirates. Gary Matthews opened the llth with an infield single and was bunted to second. Dave Guisti then walked Chris Speier intentionally before Kingman singled to left. Willie Stargell sent the game into extra innings with his 21st homer, a ninth-inning shot. Braves 7, Expos 2 Mike Lum's ninth homer gave Atlanta a 1-0 lead, the Expos tied the score in the bottom of the second, then Ralph Garr hit his 10th after Steve Rogers hit Vic Correll with a pitch and Larry Lintz dropped Rogers' throw at second on an attempted force play. Red Sox 3, White Sox 2 Wilbur Wood's record slipped to 19-16 after Rick Burleson drove in two of Boston's runs in the victory over Chicago that widened the Red Sox' American League East lead to five games over the New York Yankees. Orioles 6, Rangers 2 Tommy Davis keyed Baltimore's victory over the Rangers with a three-run single in the fourth inning. After Texas scored a run in the bottom of the fourth, Brooks Robinson led off the fifth with his seventh homer. NFL talks unsettled on key issues By ALEX SACHARE AP Sports Writer The National Football League strike, or non-strike, is nearly two months old, the start of the regular season is just over two weeks away, and some very key issues are far from settled. Foremost is the Rozelle Rule: when a player plays out his option to become a free agent and signs with another club, if the two teams cannot .agree on compensation, the decision is up to Commissioner Pete Rozelle. John Thompson, executive director of the NFL Management Council reiterated the owners' opposition to elimination of the Rozelle Rule at a press conference Thursday. "The Rozelle Rule is very closely tied to our system," said Thompson, "and we are asking the players to accept oui' system. We will modify it, but we will not eliminate it." At Forest Hills m ^ Evert wins her roimd easily By KAROL STONGteft AP Sports Writer FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP) — Chris Evert jumped the gun on wedding tradition in her 1974 debut at the U.S. Open Tennis Championships. She wore something borrowed. Not for luck, but for lack of a dress, left behind in Greenwich, Conn., where she is staying during the tournament. She donned an understated little A-line owned by Kris Kemmer and overwelmed Gail Chanfreau of France on the West Side Tennis Club's grassy center court Wednesday. Then, the future Mrs. Jimmy Connors answered endless questions about her pending marriage. "I'm just glad the wedding is only two months away," she said. "Then maybe all of the publicity will die down arid we will have some privacy. Although Chris is the bride-to- be, Billie Jean King looked more the part. Pale-skinned, from indoor World Team Tennis play, Mrs. King put on a white lace dress with matching long-sleeved jacket for her match with another WTT player, Isabelle Fernandez of Joe Gilliam has best record for Pirates among all quarterbacks By ANDY LIPPMAN AP Sports Writer One of the most successful quarterbacks in the National Football League preseason has been Pittsburgh's Joe Gilliam. And when he leads the Steel- ers against the Washington Redskins tonight Gilliam will be placing his skills in comparison with the Steelers' Terry Bradshaw and Washington's Sonny Jurgensen, two men who have made success a habit. If Gilliam continues his success, it could mean failure for the two veterans. Gilliam this preseason has led the Steelers to four straight victories. He has completed 53 of 86'attempts for 874 yards and leads the league with seven touchdown passes. Meanwhile, Jurgensenn the 18-year veterann is still trying to prove he has recovered from off-season knee surgery and will undergo a critical testing tonight that could nudge him onto the taxi squad and into ultimate retirement. Bradshaw also has been hampered by an injury — to his passing arm — and has found himself in the second slot behind Gilliam. In the other games tonight, Green Bay is at Miami and Detroit is at Buffalo. On Saturday, Philadelphia will face the New York Giants at Princeton, N.J.; Denver will meet New England at Spokane Wash.; Baltimore will be at Atlanta; Minnesota at St. Louis; Kansas City at Dallas; the New York Jets at New Orleans; Los Angeles at San Diego, and Chicago at Houston. Cincinnati and Cleveland will play at Columbus, Ohio, on Sunday and Oakland will be at San Francisco in a nationally televised game Monday night. Miami is trying to rebound from its worst loss in three years when it hosts Green Bay. Los Angeles walloped the defending champions 31-13 last Saturday and the Dolphins hope that the return of running back Mercury Morris will stimulate their offense. Americans taking swim meet seriously By BOB EGELKO Associated Press Writer CONCORD, Calif. (AP) "We take this differently than the Americans," says Rudolf Schramme, coach of the East German swimming team. "We are more realistic. "The Americans have been the best for years, and their men will remain best," he added. "There will be many other times to prove things." Schramme's powerful squad faces the United States here this weekend in a dual meet between the world's top swimming powers. The meet is being billed as a Shootout for No. 1, a chance for the American women to avenge their stunning losses in last year's world championships or for the East German team to end the U.S. reign of more than a decade over international swimming. "The prestige of American swimming is at stake," says American men's coach Ron Balatorre of Pasadena, Calif., City College. "The East Germans wouldn't be here if they didn't think they had a shot at us." Not so, says German star Kornelia Ender, who won four gold medals at the 1973 championships in Belgrade. "The competition will only show who swims best on that day," the willowy 15-year-old said as the East Germans wound up their Thursday morning workout. Miss Ender and Schramme spoke in German. The blonde, poised 5-foot-10 freestyler may decide the women's meet and team standings in her duels with American champion Shirley Babashoff. Miss Ender was making no prediction's, but' said she thought teammate Andrea Franke would also be a factor. Miss Babashoff's mind is on her German rival. "I remember Belgrade and I'm thinking, 'there goes Kornelia, I've got to get her'," she said. "I think the women train J.C. Snead takes lead in PC tourney ATLANTA (AP) — J.C. Snead, a former minor league baseball player and nephew of golfing great Sam Snead, fashioned a course-tying 64 Thursday to take a one-stroke lead in the rain-splattered first round of the $250,000 Tournament Players Championship, but he refused to let it get to him. "I try not to get excited," said the 32-year-old veteran who hasn't won on the tour in over two years. He belted out 10 birdies during his round, including five straight and seven on his first nine holes. He also had a pair of bogeys as he took his slim lead over obscure second-year pro Tom Evans, who had a 65 in the opening round which was marred by three thunderstorm delaysm The weather caused play to be suspended for two hours, 35 minutes.. The 45 players who did not finish their rounds will conclude their opening play today before the second round begins in this initial TPC tournament, which is worth $50,000 to the winner in addition to a 10-year tour exemption and an invitation to the U.S. Open. The players are dedicated to making this event a fifth major tourney, joining the Masters, U.S. Open, PGA and British Open. Two strokes behind Snead over the par 72, 6,883-yard Atlanta Country Club course are Jack Nicklaus and journeyman Bobby Mitchell. harder than we do," said Wolf- rem Sperling, who swims the individual medley on the men's team. "They train together. They work themselves." The American men are strong favorites to win their half of the meet, but triple world record-holder Tim Shaw isn't taking anything for granted. "The only thing people will ask about is the combined score," said the lanky 16-yea- rold freestyler from Long Beach, Calif. "We have to get as far out ahead as possible.not just win it." Broyles pleased in contact drill with progress FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Head Coach Frank Broyles said he was pleased with the improvement his Arkansas Razorbacks made in the contact department Thursday. Broyles also said he was impressed iwith quarterbacks Scott Bull and Mark Miller as they ran through option play drills. The defense worked against a simulated Southern Cal offense and Broyles said the defense would continue to do so. Linebacker Marvin Daily and defensive back Bo Busby returned to full pad workouts Thursday after having been injured, and Broyles said both had good practices. The Razorbacks' Saturday scrimmage will be closed to the public, a spokesman for the University of Arkansas sports information office said. Columbia.
