We'll get better as the season progresses." The Irish, ranked No. 3 in The Associated Press preseason poll, were forced into a comeback role when Tech methodically marched 68 yards to score after the opening kickoff. Notre Dame cashed in a fumble recovery at the 14 for the tying touchdown, went ahead on freshman Dave Reeve's 22-yard field goal and established control with a goal line stand that closed the door on Tech's last chance to regain the lead. Tom Clements, a brilliant quarterback, then picked apart Tech's secondary with six pass completions for 83 yards in a drive that produced a touchdown in the final minute of the half for a 17-7 Irish lead. Notre Dame spoiled the coaching debut of Pepper Rodgers, who left UCLA last year to return to Tech, where he once played quarterback. Rodgers had said earlier that Tech "didn't build its football reputation by beating Notre Dame. " He said Monday night, "They're too good for us. I didn't schedule them. I never would have." After Tech's 7-0 lead on an eight-yard scoring pass from Rudy Allen to Jimmy Robinson, Notre Dame drew even when Wayne Bullock slashed over from cthe two following a fumble recovery at the Jacket 14. The Irish jumped ahead 10-7 on Reeve's field goal eight seconds after the second period began, and'got the padded lead they needed on Clements' seven-yard scoring toss to Pete Demmerle late in the half. Bullock got another touchdown on a one-yard plunge following a fumble recovery at Tech's 22 and Al Samuel capped an 80-yard fourth period march with an eight-yard scoring run.

Rookie pitches Dodgers to win Notre Dame Stings 'Jackets By ALEX SACHARE AP Sports Writer Geoff Zahn, a 27-year-old rookie with the Los Angeles Dodgers, pitched a four-hitter for the first complete game of his major league career, stopping the Atlanta Braves 4-1. Fred Norman, a 32-year-old veteran of 14 seasons of organized ball, made his first start since Aug. 18 and allowed just four hits before leaving the game after being hit by a line drive in the sixth inning in pitching the Cincinnati Reds to an 8-3 triumph over the San Diego Padres. The victories left the Dodgers 3% games ahead of the Reds in the National League West race. Elsewhere in the National League, Chicago beat Pittsburgh 9-4, Philadlephia blanked St. Louis 2-0, San Francisco topped Houston 8-6 and New York defeated Montreal 7-1. Dodgers 8, Braves 1 Of the four Atlanta hits off Zahn, only one was hit really well, a double by Dusty Baker down the left-feld line in the fourth inning. Steve Garvey belted a two- run homer and Ron Cey had a three-run blast to pace the Los Angeles attack. Trevino captures Series AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Lee Trevino happily, successfully put one troublesome course behind him and is ready to assault another one — Augusta National. "I think I have a very good chance to win the Masters," Trevino said after his not-so- sudden-death playoff victory over Gary Player Monday in the World Series of Golf. "It's just like everybody has been telling me — I just have to make up my mind to do it," he said. "I now think I can play any course in the world." It was a marked turn-around for the talkative guy from El Paso, Texas. For years he'd been convinced there were two courses he could not play: Augusta National (the site of the Masters in Augusta, Ga.) and Firestone in Akron, the site of the World Series. He'd said Augusta wasn't suited to his game and, from time to time — including this year — skipped that famed tournament. It was one of the big no-show stories in the world of sports. And he said the 7,180 yards that make up Firestone were just too much for him. Reds 8, Padres 3 Cincinnati took an early 24 lead, but consecutive homers by Rich Morales and Johnfty Grubb in third inning put the Padres in front 3-2. Home runs by Tony Perez, his 24th, and Dave Conception, his llth, highlighted a four-run fifth inning outburst for Cincinnati. Cubs 9, Pirates 4 Jose Cardenal and Andre Thornton blasted homers for the Cubs, and Dave LaKoche came on in the eighth inning to preserve the victory for Steve Stone, 7-5. When LaRoche was summoned, the Cubs were nursing a 6-4 lead and Pittsburgh had the bases loaded. Phils 2, Cards 0 The Cards failed to take advantage of Pittsburgh's loss and remained 2% games behind the Pirates in the NL East by losing to Philadelphia 2-0 as Jim Lonborg fired a two-hitter. Lou Brock failed in his effort to record his 104th stolen base of the season and tie the all- time record held by Maury Wills. Giants 8, Astros 6 The Giants broke a 3-3 tie with five runs in the eighth inning. Tito Fuentes drove in the tie-breaking run with a single, Gary Matthews belted a two- run double and Dave Kingman closed-out the surge with a two- run triple. Mets 7, Expos 1 Ray Sadecki scattered eight hits and contributed a run-scoring single to a four-run fourth inning for the METS. Dave Schneck had a two-run single in the fourth and Bud Harrelson drove in the final run of the inning with a single. Davidson: period harmful JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) Arkansas State University Coach Bill Davidson said Monday that the long period of practice before the opening game of the Indians football season would not help his team. "I've never been confronted with so much time for practice before the opening game," said Davidson, whose Indians start the season against Louisiana Tech Sept. 28 at home. "We had thought about letting the players off for three or four days, but they voted...to work a little each day just to stay in shape." The scheduled season opener was postponed Saturday night at Lafayette, La., because of a hurricane warning. It has been rescheduled for Nov. 29 at 7:30 p.m. The Indians went through a 45-minute running and conditioning session Monday Connors, King capture U.S. Open Tennis crowns Baseball Scores By KAROL STONGER AP Sports Writer FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP) — Jimmy Connors and Billie Jean King took enlirely different routes to the winner's circle in wresting U.S. Open tennis championships from Australian players. "It was the best tennis I've ever played in my life ... I did everything well. I think that's what it lakes to beat Ken Rosewall," said Connors. "1 really thought Evonne was goiru; to win there for a while. Until the last point, to be exact," said Miss King.' Connors whipped the two- time Open winner from Australia, 6-1, 6-0, 6-1 Monday in the most lopsided men's final in the D3-\ car history of the grass court classic. Miss King won her fourth trophy in an erratic comeback over Australian Evonne Goolagong, 3-ti, 6-3, 7-5 The victories were worth $22,JOO apiece and marked the first >wcep i>\ Americans since Stan Smith and Miss King won in 1971 Au>.,raluuis John Ntwcombc .uui Margaret Court took the ti- li-s last \ear Newcoiube U'Wi-ii M Kosevvull m the seuu- iiiuils Sumlu.v.. and Mrs Court i.-iiiaiiu-i.l in Australia U» awai: the birth of her second child. Connors, the 22-year-old left- hander, said he started the day so eager that it scared him. "I was so high," he said, "that at one point I was afraid I'd come down. I tried to stay calm. I could feel my heart beating in my shirt." Rosewall, at 39, is recognized as the classic player in the game, but Connors established himself as the current king of tennis. He won 11 straighl games and look only one hour, eight minutes lo win his Ihird major tille of Ihe year and increase his season earnings lo nearly $200,000. Miss Goolagong, who at 23 was seeking her first UMS. Open crown, had lurned back a de- termined lop-seeded Christ Evert in a resumed semifinal malch. Bui she was not so fortunate against the seasoned 30-year-old Miss King. "I wasn't sure I was going to play well after yesterday's match," Miss Goolagong said. "I was afraid it would be a big letdown, bul I knew I was playing against an experienced player." "I was in a daze out there during the last set," said Miss King. "I was really lucky. I just said 'stay in there.'" She did and won Ihe malch Mann- at love. "That is why I can't understand why people call her Ihe old lady," said Evonne. "She certainly doesn't play like it."
