SPORTS Twins' Decker Impressive Timei Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, April 15, 1976 By The Associated Press When you only win a game every April or so and you've suffered through the kind of 12 months Joe Decker has. it's tough to feel sorry for your opposing pitcher just because his infield commits five errors and costs him the ball game. "It didn't bother me. It's just nice to get a win." Decker said Wednesday after hurling 7 1-3 impressive innings —two runs, five hits, three walks, four strikeouts — in the Minnesota Twins' 6-2 victory over Wilbur Wood and the Chicago White Sox. Wood yielded eight hits but all the Minnesota runs were unearned. Second baseman Jack Brohamer and shortstop Bucky Dent committed two errors apiece while third baseman Jorge Orta had one. Meanwhile, Decker blanked the Sox until the eighth when he needed relief help from Bill Campbell. It was the 28-year- old right-hander's first triumph since April 9. 1975. Two weeks later he was felled by a virus that virtually wiped out his season. Elsewhere in the American League, the Texas Rangers completed a three-game sweep of the Oakland A's 4-2. the Cleveland Indians came from four runs behind to edge the Boston Red Sox 6-5 and the California Angels posted their first 1976 triumph by shading the Kansas City Royals 7-6. Rangers 4, A's 2 Gay lord Perry pitched Texas to its third straight triumph over the A's with a six-hitler, outdueling Vida Blue. By winning, the Rangers moved into first place in the AL West with a 5-1 record, 1V 2 games ahead of the White Sox and two in front of the perennial champion A's. Texas took a 2-1 lead in the fifth inning. Roy Howell singled, was sacrificed to second and scored when Jim Fregosi's hot grounder took a bad hop and caromed off third baseman Sal Bando's arm for a double. Toby Harrah's single sent Fregosi home. In the seventh, Lenny Randle walked, moved to second on a sacrifice, took third on a grounder and scored on a wild Astros Sweep Frisco; Even Record By The Associated Press If Sparky Anderson has earned the nickname "Captain Hook," Houston Astros Manager Bill Virdon deserves to be an admiral. Anderson earned his stripes last year for rarely letting a Cincinnati Reds pitcher finish what he started. But that was nothing compared to Virdon, whose juggling act would make Barnum & Bailey proud. Virdon 17 pitchers last week when the Astros lost their first three games to Cincinnati. The results changed but the strategy remained the same the past three days, when the Astros evened their record by sweeping the three-game series with the San Francisco Giants. Virdon used three pitchers in each of those victories, including Wednesday night's 5-3 decision over the Giants. "I'm not going to hesitate in going to the bullpen." said Virdon. "because our starters have not had enough work yet. When I bring in a reliever I do so with the knowledge that he should have better stuff than the man who is coming out." Elsewhere in the National League, the Philadelphia Phillies pounded the Montreal Expos 8-2, the Chicago Cubs edged the New York Mets 6-5 and the San Diego Padres trimmed the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1. Larry Dierker lasted six innings for the Astros, which is six more than his last outing when he was shelled by the Reds and left the game without retiring a batter. He was backed by Roger Metzger's run-scoring double and Enos Cabell's RBI triple, key hits in the Astros' four-run second inning. He also had the support of two effective relief pitchers. Larry Hardy and Jose Sosa. Phillies 8, Expos 2 Philadelphia's Jim Lonborg scattered six hits, struck out four and walked three to pick up his first victory since July 23.1975. "For me. it's the beginning of a new career." said Lonborg. Cy Young Award winner in 1967 with the Boston Red Sox. who suffered from shoulder problems last season. Cubs 6, Mets 5 The Cubs won their fourth straight game, which was marked by catcher Randy Hundley's return to the club. The Chicago crowd of 9,307 made Hundley feel welcome with several standing ovations and he. showed his appreciation with a double that triggered a three-run seventh inning. "That tore me up." said Hundley, who was picked up by the Cubs Tuesday after being released by San Diego. Jose Cardenal's single. Bill pitch. Indians 6, Red Sox 5 Rick'Manning doubled to trigger a six-run sixth inning against Ferguson Jenkins that erased a 4-0 Boston lead as the Red Sox pounded Jim Bibby. Manning scored on Duane Kuiper's single and one out later a walk and Boog Powell's single made it 4-2. Rico Carty doubled a run home and, after an intentional walk, Jenkins balked the tying run across. Alan Ashby then delivered a two-run single. Madlock's triple and Jerry Morales' single were the run-producing hits in the decisive seventh. Mets ace Tom Seaver rein- jured his calf and was forced to leave the game in the sixth with New York leading 5-2. Padres 3, Dodgers 1 Dave Winfield and Hector Torres slammed consecutive home runs in the second inning and left-hander Randy Jones scattered seven hits to send the winless Dodgers to their fourth straight defeat. Jones, who became the only 20-game winner in Padres history last season, struck out five enroute to his second straight complete game victory. .SMILE AWHILE***/CA$E POWERS EQUIP.!

By The Associated Press Philadelphia fans can't help but be relishing tonight's playoff matchup of the National Basketball Association's two "Big Macs" — Bob McAdoo of the Buffalo Braves and George McGinnis of the hometown 76ers. McAdoo. the Braves' agile center, became only the fourth player in league history to win the scoring title at least three consecutive years, finishing the season with a 31.1 average per game. He also was seventh in rebounding and sixth in blocked shots. McGinnis. the 76ers' powerful forward, wound up his first NBA season — following a standout career in the American Basketball Association — as the league's sixth best scorer (23.0), sixth leading rebounder and second in steals. The Buffalo-Philadelphia game, the first in their best-of- three qualifying series, is one of four NBA playoff contests scheduled tonight. In the other qualifying series, the Milwaukee Bucks, with a 1-0 lead, meet the Pistons at Detroit. In best-of-seven quarter-final series, the Washington Bullets, with a 1-0 edge, entertain the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Seattle.. SuperSonics. also with a 1-0 advantage, are at home against the Phoenix Suns. Philadelphia Coach Gene Shue has made no secret of his strategy against Buffalo. He has indicated he virtually is willing to concede McAdoo his average number of points, explaining: "What we have to do is hold down the rest of the Braves." The 76ers' tactics worked well enough during the regular season for them to beat the Braves in four of seven games, enabling them to gain the home court advantage in the playoffs. Both teams have explosive offenses and porous defenses. Buffalo was the second highest scoring team during the season with a 107.3 average and Philadelphia was fourth at 106.5...Defensively. Philadelphia finished 14th in the'league, allowing 106.3 points per game, and Buffalo was 15th at 106.4. Milwaukee, beset by rumors revolving around the uncertain status of Coach Larry Costello and General Manager Wayne Embry. nevertheless overcame Detroit 110-107 in their opening game, mainly on the play of guard Gary Brokaw. Filling in for injured Jim Price. Brokaw. who had averaged only 8.3 points during the regular season, broke loose for a career-high 36 points and added five assists, three rebounds, one steal and a blocked shot. Washington, which nullifed Cleveland's home court advantage by winning its series opener 100-95 against the Cavaliers at the Coliseum in Richfield Township, Ohio, has not become overconfident. "They may have had the jitters because this was their first time in the playoffs," said center Wes Unseld of the playoff-hardened Bullets. "But they will be tougher from here on in." Kuemper Equals WinMark Kuemper's boys' tennis team equalled their win mark of last season by whipping Storm Lake here Wednesday afternoon, 8-1.
