Pagfe Pour HOPE (ARK.) STAR Tuesday, September 3, 1974 Orioles nip faltering Red Sox By HERSCMEL NlSSENSON AP Sports Writer Boston bats were ailing and the faltering Red Sox managed a grand total of five hits — two of them bunts — in dropping a doubleheader to the surging Baltimore Orioles by twin 3-0 scores. However, the Sox held onto first place in the American league's East Division by one game over New York Monday when the Yankees split a twin bill with the Milwaukee Brewers, winning the opener 3-1 but dropping the nightcap 3-2. Baltimore is only three games out. Elsewhere, Chicago's Wilbur Wood became a 20-game winner for the fourth year in a row as the White Sox rallied to beat the Kansas City Royals 6-4 in 10 innings, the Oakland A's edged the California Angels M and the Minnesota Twins trounced the Texas Rangers 93. Cleveland and Detroit were rained out. The Orioles stretched their longest winning streak of the season to six games and extended Boston's slide to five in a row when Ross Grimsley hurled a three-hitter in the opener — Bobby Grich's fourth- inning homer off 20-game winner Luis Tiant was the only run — and Mike Cuellar went him one better by firing a two-hitter in the nightcap. Paul Blair's bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the third inning enabled Cuellar to outduel Bill season at six games by taking the opener behind Rudy May's four-hit pitching, but the Brewers built a 3-0 lead in the nightcap on an RBI single by ex- Yankee Mike Hcgan and Tim Johnson's two-run single and held on behind Tom Murphy's clutch relief pitching. In the New York ninth, Ron Blomberg's single and Roy White's double put runners at second and third with none out. But Elliott Maddox flied to short center and, after an intentional pass to Bobby Murcer, Graig Nettles fouled out and Lou Piniella grounded to second, when Pedro Garcia made a diving stop. White Sox 6, Royals 4 Wood survived a 13-hit Kansas City attack and became the first White Sox pitcher ever to win 20 games four years in a row. Jorge Orta's two-run double in the 10th inning provided Wood's triumph after a two-run pinch double by Ron San 10 capped a three-run rally in the eighth that erased a 4-1 Kansas City lead. A's 6, Angels 4 Home runs by Reggie Jackson and Joe Rudi highlighted Oakland's .and increased the A's lead in the AL West to 8'/4 games over Kansas City and Texas. Frank Robinson and John Doherty homered for California. Twins 9, Rangers 3 Joe Decker pitched a six-hitter and Eric Soderholm, Craig Kusick and Tony Oliva hom- ered for Minnesota.

(AP) — Memphis quarterback John Huarte brushed off questions about the passes his receivers dropped and summed up the Southmen's 16-13 World Football league victory over Jacksonville Monday night by saying "we completed them when we had to." He hit running back John Harvey with a 21-yard pass and wide receivering Roger Wallace with an 18-yarder in a 67-yard drive for the Southmen's winning touchdown midway in the fourth quarter. That, along with the power running of Harvey, James Jennings and Willie Spencer, made up for Huarte's meager 7 completions for 19 attempts. The well-traveled Huarte's average would have been glowing if receivers hadn't dropped four perfect tosses. But the happiest player in the Memphis dressing room was defensive back David Thomas, a rookie from Texas Southern and former high school star at Jacksonville Raines High School. His interception and 60- yard run back in the final minute shut off the Sharks' last threat. "Everybody I knew in high school was here," Thomas beamed.

The most important thing was that we won, but that interception did cap it, with all my friends in the stands." Memphis Coach John McVaey said Jacksonville's blitzing defense cause the Southmen some trouble "but our three running backs did a good job." The victory kept Memphis two games behind unbeaten Birmingham with a 2-2 record in the Central Division. Jacksonville dropped to 3-€ and deeper in the Eastern Division cellar. Sharks Coach Charlie Tate not only had his team's inability to win the close ones to worry about. He also lost defensive back Ron Coppenbarger, perhaps for the season, with torn knee ligaments. "We're still trying to get consistency at quarterback," Tate said. "Kay Stephenson put us in the game with his passing but, unfortunately, the two interceptions at the end took us right out of it."

Oakland emerged with a 20-19 victory, thanks to a 74-yard scoring strike from Ken Stabler to Cliff Branch that turned things around. An unusual drop of a Steve Spurrier bomb by Gene Washington late in the game proved costly to the 49ers. 49crs. As a result, the Raiders take a 4-1 pre-season crecord into Saturday's Berkeley clash with the New York Jets. The 0-5 49ers host the Los Angeles Rams Sunday. For a while, upset seemed a possibility. A stout San Francisco defense smothered Stabler and a pair of Tom Wittum field goals gave the 49ers a 60 lead late in the second period. Stabler then uncorked his bomb to Branch, who grabbed the ball on the San Francisco 36 and outraced cornerback ;K Bruce Taylor to the end zone. George Blanda's conversion made it 7-6 at the half. Razorbacks practice indoors FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Rain and cold weather forced the Arkansas Razorbacks to practice indoors on Labor Day. "It was just too cold and wet to practice outside," head football coach Frank Broyles said. "We worked primarily on polishing our offensive and defensive assignments," Broyles said. The Razbrbacks drilled for 2% hours, spending much of the time running plays. Of last week's scrimmage, Broyles said he was happy with the way the entire first team offensive line looked. He also said the first and second team defense showed much promise. Junior quarterback Mike Kirkland has not practiced in 10 days due to a wrist ailment. He is to report to the doctor Tuesday for an X-ray. Stabler completed 13 of 21 passes for 181 yards.

Team spirit wins dual Swiss need CONCORD Calif. (AJP) Team spirit had a lot to do with the United States' 198-145 victory over East Germany in a dual meet for world supremacy in swimming, says John Naber, who ended a seven-year world reign of men backstrokers by East Germany's Roland Mathes. "There is such a thing as psychology in swimming," the 18-year-old University of Southern California student said after the two-day meet ended Sunday. Seven world records fell and two were tied in the meet at Concord Community Park pool. U.S. men won all 15 of their events with 1-2 finishes in seven of the 12 individual races and a 119-61 point margin. East Germany won 10 of 14 women's events and held an 8479 edge, but U.S. girls took second in 10 of the 12 individual races. The diving scored separately, went to the United States 24-2. Tim Shaw, 16, of lx>ng tieach, Calif, was the meet's only triple winner, capturing the 200 400 and 1,500 freestyle. There also was sort of NFL neighborhood battle Sunday, with Cleveland beating Cincinnati 21-17 on Billy Pritchett's two-yard touchdown run with 30 seconds left in the game at Columbus, Ohio. A key play on the drive that led to the winning touchdown was Don Cockroft's pass from punt formation on a four down with 10 yards to go on the Cleveland 48 yard line. The loss was the first in five games for Cincinnati and left Pittsburgh, 5-0, as the only unbeaten team in exhibition play. Denver and Los Angeles are tied with Cincinnati for the second best record. Denver beat New England 2721 Saturday night on a one-yard touchdown plunge by reserve quarterback John Hufnagel in the final quarter. James Harris, also a sub quarterback, passed for two fourth-quarter touchdowns ,as^ Ijos Angeles beat San Diego 2016.

By ALEX SACHARE AP Sports Writer The Pittsburgh Pirates' 7-4, 11-1 Labor Day sweep over Philadelphia left some bad feelings among a couple of the Phillies. "We're going to get even," vowed Philadelphia second baseman Dave Cash, who was struck in the batting helmet by a pitch during the eighth inning of ihe nightcap. "And if nobody else on this team will throw the ball, I will." Kison said the pitch to Cash a fastball, slipped from his hand because of a chronic blister on his middle finger. He said he talked briefly with Cash after the game and that Cash didn't indicate any anger.
