By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer The New York Yankees are certainly having their ups and downs these days. Right now, they're up in the American league East Division pennant race. The Yankees, who dropped out of first place Thursday night, moved back in Friday with a doubleheader sweep over the Cleveland Indians. "I don't think ups and downs bother this team," said New York Manager Bill Virdon after the resilient Yankees beat the Indians 5-4 and 3-0. "This team .seems to handle pressure pretty well." The Yankees moved into a tie with Baltimore in the pressurized race as the Orioles defeated sagging Boston 2-1 and plunged the third-place Red Sox four games off the pace. In the other American League games, the Chicago White Sox blanked the Oakland A's 20; the Minnesota Twins nipped the California Angels 3-2 and the Detroit Tigers trimmed the Milwaukee Brewers 8-5. Rain postponed the Kansas City-Texas game. Bobby Murcer's run-scoring triple in the ninth inning gave the Yankees, their first-game victory. They won the second game as I^rry Gura pitched a six-hitter. New York got all the runs Gura needed in the fourth inning. Elliott cMaddox opened with a double and Murcer was hit by a pitch. Lou Piniella singled to left, scoring Maddox, and after Thurman Munson forced Piniella, Chris Chambliss doubled. New York added another run in the sixth. Orioles 2, Red Sox 1 Don Baylor and Boog Powell belted home runs and Ross Grimsley and Grant Jackson combined to pitch a six-hitter, leading Baltimore over Boston. In Ihe second inning, Baylor drilled his 10th homer of the season—a drive into the screen in left-center field. Powell's 10th of the year broke a 1-1 tie in the seventh. White Sox 2, A's 0 Bart Johnson and Terry Forster combined on a three-hitter and Jorge Orta's run-scoring single keyed a two-run sixth inning, pacing Chicago over Oakland. The loss cut Oakland's American League West Division lead to four games over UK. Texas Rangers, who were rained out. Twins 3, Angels 2 Minnesota took advantage of California starter Nolan Ryan's wildness and an error by first baseman John Doherty to score two runs in the seventh inning and defeat the Angels. Tigers 8, Brewers 5 h Rookie Dan Meyer belted two home runs and John Knox' two- run single capped a seventh-inning rally that gave Detroit its victory over Milwaukee.

Two years ago, the University of Arkansas opened its season against Southern California. The game was a sellout. Razorback fans stood outside the stadium begging for tickets. USC won 31-10 and the following week the fans who had been inside the stadium were on the outside trying to unload their tickets for the Oklahoma State game. Tonight, the fans on the outside will be trying to buy tickets to see Arkansas play Oklahoma Stale. Arkansas opened the 1974 season last week with a 22-7 upset of the University of Southern California before a record crowd of 54,622. The loth-ranked Razorbacks are a one-touchdown favorite over OSU. The Cowboys whipped the Razorbacks 38-6 last year after Arkansas had won five straight in the series. Oklahoma State opened its 1974 season with a 59-0 victory over Wichita State, but Coach Jim Stanley was far from pleased. "You've gotta look at it like it is, Wichita State didn't compared to us physicaly," Stanley said. "The film proved if we play like that against Arkansas we'll get beat three touchdowns," Both teams will operate from the wishbone offense. Arkansas stayed on the ground against USC, throwing Houston will face Cleveland By FRED ROTHENBERG AP Sports Writer In the past two National Football League seasons, Houston victories were a contradiction in terms. The Oilers won regular season games as often as the Miami Dolphins look home the Super Bowl. The Oilers have viewed victories in moral terms because their statistical ones were singular. For 1972, the record book said 1-13 and 1973 was no improvement whatsoever. Here it is 1974, the season is one game old and the Oilers are 1-0. Now they only hope they aren't victims of some sort of quota system. Houston brings its undefeated season into Cleveland Sunday to face the Browns, who have beaten the Oilers all eight times the two clubs have gotten together. Besides the Oilers, 11 other teams risk undefeated records Sunday when the second week of the NFL season swings into action with Miami at Buffalo, St. Louis at Washington, Kansas City at Oakland, New Orleans at Los Angeles, Mind nesota at Detroit, San Diego at Cincinnati, San Francisco at Atlanta, the New York Jets at Chicago, Pittsburgh at Denver, Green Bay at Baltimore and New England at New Haven, Conn, to play the New York Giants. Then the Dallas Cowboys put their undefeated season on the line Monday night in Phila- dephia against the Eagles in a nationally televised game. O.J. Simpson, who injured his ankle last week when Buffalo rallied to beat Oakland is listed as a probable starter. Those Kansas City and Oakland folk are feudm' again. The Chiefs, 1-0, and the Raiders, 01, have battled to a standoff, dividing the previous spats 14-142. Quarterback Joe Gitliam satisfied his first-period critics wilh a dazzling passing display of 257 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' 30-0 rout of Baltimore. only two passes. One was intercepted and the other was completed for a loss of 11 yards, Halfbacks Barnabas White and Ike Forte and .fullback Marsh White rushed for a total of 219 yards against USC. Each averaged 4.3 yards a try or better. "It'll take more than arm tackle to get Forte or Barnabas White down," said OSU defensive coordinator Lance Van Zandl after watching the Razorbacks. "The same goes for the fullback." Arkansas' defense played superbly against USC, intercepting four Pat Haden passes and recovering two fumbles. "We were playing a finesse team Saturday," said Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles. "This is more of a jaw-to-jaw offense and defense." The kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. FALL CURTAIN GOING UP ON ACT111 lAD/ES SPECIALTY SHOP ^tjt^ *4I|^ *^Hl» *4tf+ *f3K* ^IBM* ^Bto ^^^B INVENTORS!
