SPORTS Reds Get Nod in NL By The Associated Press Give the Cincinnati Reds an arm and they'll take a leg. Give them a couple of new legs, and they'll probably take a pennant. The Reds won the World Series last year despite championship-level bench strength. But they didn't sit on their bench over the winter, swinging some deals which appear to have made them stronger in that department this season. The Reds added a lethal right-handed pinch hitter in Bob Bailey and a swinging lefthander in Mike Lum and now Sparky Anderson's gang is loaded, if you'll pardon the expression. The Reds are a team that has everthing —speed, power, defense, pitching and bench strength and the guess is that they'll also have the National League pennant by the time the 1976 baseball season is over. Along with their new bench strength, the Reds can count on some old strengths in catcher Johnny Bench, second-baseman Joe Morgan and third baseman Pete Rose, all Most Valuable Players at one time or other. Those Big Three are joined by reliable Tony Perez, giving Cincinnati's thoroughbreds the inside track in the West Division race. . The Reds will probably be challenged most seriously in their division by Los Angeles, which remains a palpable Snapper. threat despite the loss of pitcher Andy Messersmith. who won free agent status and jumped the Dodgers in search of fortune elsewhere. •~~ Pitching is the Dodgers' forte. They led the league last year for the fourth straight season with a 2.92 earned run average and figure to have a strong staff with Don Sutton, Burt Hooton and Doug Rau as the nucleus. If left-hander Tommy John comes back with some of his oldtime authority, the Dodgers could make it red-hot for the Reds. National League champions two years ago, the Dodgers have big run-producers in Steve Garvey. Ron Cey and Dusty Baker, the center fielder acquired in an offseason deal with the Atlanta Braves. The San Francisco Giants finished 27'2 games off the Reds' runaway pace last season, and don't figure to get too much closer this time. The only thing positive about the team is that it'll be playing in Candlestick Park. On the verge of a move to Toronto, the financially troubled Giants were saved at the last moment by a local group, but won't be Time* Herald, Carroll, la. Tuesday, April 6, 1976 saved the embarrassment of finishing third in the West despite the presence of outfield star Bobby Murcer and the addition of third baseman Ken Reitz. The talent gap which separates San Francisco from the top two teams becomes even more discernible in the rest of the West. General Manager Tal Smith and Manager Bill Virdon put the trading emphasis on pitching for Houston over the winter, unloading longtime star Doug Rader and catcher Milt May. The Astros have plenty of prospects on the mound and that's precisely what they are with few of proven quality. The San Diego Padres came out of the cellar for the first time in their history last season, but still won't see much light this year. They've acquired the aforementioned Rader to bolster their infield, but pitching is still their main problem. Randy Jones pressed New-York's Tom Seaver for the Cy Young Award last year, but Dave Freiselben and Dan Spillner are the other leading starters Sport Glances • Tough, dependable. • Fingertip controls. • Instant depth adjustments. All Snapper mowers meet A.N.S.I, safety spccificntions.

The Atlanta Braves had a disastrous fifth-place finish last season despite high hopes and General Manager Eddie Robinson took things in his own hands over the winter. He tore up the Braves beyond recognition, unloading hometown favorites like Ralph Garr and Baker in a major reconstruction job. In the East, the Pittsburgh Pirates have strengthened their pitching staff with the acquisition of Doc Medich and the development of young John Candelaria. The perrenial East champions present one of the richest hitting teams in the NL with the likes of Willie Stargell, Rennie Stennett and Manny Sanguillen. The Pirates will be pressed by the Philadelphia Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals. The Phillies have one of the best long-ball hitting teams around with Mike Schmidt (38 home runs in 1975) and Greg Luzinksi (34). Should Dick Allen return to his onetime power form, Philadelphia would have the strongest 3-4-5 line-up in baseball. The Phillies have also buttressed their pitching with the acquisition of'Jim Kaat and present a strong defensive alignment keyed by shortstop Larry Bowa and second baseman Dave Cash. The Cardinals needed a left- handed pitcher and a right- handed pinch hitter, so southpaw Pete Falcone was obtained from the Giants and outfielder Mike Anderson from the Phillies. Falcone will join a staff that has to improve, although Al Hrabosky is one of-the best relievers in the business. Like the Cardinals, the New York Mets had priorities. But unlike the Cardinals, the Mets didn't fill them. In need of a third baseman, the Mets dealt for more pitching strength and got Mickey Lolich from Detroit. He'll join a staff that includes Tom Seaver. Jon Matlack and Jerry Koosman, a formidable group among the starters. However, the Mets will fall on the development of youngsters for bullpen help, a situation that could be fatal in New York. The Chicago Cubs and Montreal Expos will present no problems to the East's front-" runners. The Cubs have trouble in the pitching and catching departments and the Expos have; trouble just about everywhere. The probable order of finish: West—Cincinnati. Los Angeles, San Francisco. Houston. • San Diego and Atlanta. East- Pittsburgh. Philadelphia. St. Louis. New York. Chicago and Montreal.

Angels' Xanana Confident and Good By The Associated Press Frank Tanana is confident, brash, cocky — and good. "I want to increase everything this season but my ERA." says the 22-year-old lefthander, who'll be the starting pitcher for the California Angels on opening day. Improving on his 1975 figures — a 16-9 won-lost record, a 2.62 earned run average and 269 strikeouts, tops in the American League .— won't be easy. But if Tanana's preseason; efforts are any indication, don't bet against him. In 15 innings he has not allowed a single earned run. His final tuncup before pitching the season opener against Oakland Friday was against the Chicago Cubs Monday, and he allowed just four hits and one unearned run in seven innings. The Angels backed Tanana's pitching with a 14-hit attack, highlighted by a three-run homer by Joe Lahoud and a two-run shot by Ed Hermann. Three other opening-day probable pitchers also turned in impressive tuneups BETTER LAWNS & GARDENS A LAWN WELL CARED FOR MAKES A BEAUTIFUL HOME! IT'S A FACT!

The White Sox won it with three runs in the seventh on a sacrifice fly by Brian Downing and a two-run single by Jack Brohamer. Torrez. obtained by Oakland from Baltimore in the Reggie Jackson trade, gave up three runs and eight hits in his six- inning stint and then was named by A's Manager Chuck Tanner as Oakland's opening day pitcher. Billy Williams' three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth provided Oakland's margin of victory. Woodie Fryman and Dan Warthen of Montreal stopped Kansas City on two hits. Fryman, who has not given up a run in 13 innings this spring, allowed one single over the first five innings and Warthen allowed just one single over Ihe final four. George Beall and Dale Murphy hit three-run homers to help Richmond beat Texas. Dave Cash's two-run highlighted a five-run eighth inning that carried the Phillies past Pittsburgh. Rick Manning's three hits and three RBIs led the Indians past Milwaukee. The Dodgers pounded John D'Acquisto for four runs in the fourth inning to defeat the Giants. Houston topped the Twins in the first baseball game ever played in the $163 million Superdome in. New Orleans, which drew a crowd of 10.073.
