SPORTS Yankees Win in New Home NEW YORK (API - The telescreen part of the celebrated $3 million Scoreboard wasn't working. Another section informed the crowd that Oscar Gamble was hitting .999. Minnesota's Hutch Wynegar popped out on what was flashed as a 4-1 count. The elevators weren't programmed to stop at all levels. Parts of the ballpark weren't completed and were filled with construction equipment. The slopes in the outfield would do justice to the Boston Marathon. But it was beautiful. It was Yankee Stadium on the first day of the rest of its life Thursday. Like other New York City tenants, the New York Yankees had to wait a long time — 50 years — to get their home painted and refurbished, And they moved back into "The House That Timei Herald, Carroll, la. Friday, April 16, 1976 Ruth Built" and the city rebuilt at a whopping cost of around $75 million with a smashing 11-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins before a roaring packed house of 54.010. "Yankee Stadium is beautiful." said Manager Billy Martin. "It's great to be back. We had to break the stadium in Iowa, Pickett's beer is now available in supermarkets and taverns.

While the renovation was under way. the Yankees shared Shea Stadium with the New York Mets for two years, but they were second-class citizens there, said shortstop Fred Stanley. "It seemed like they were waiting for us to screw up. The clubhouse was cramped and you couldn't put things where you wanted. And the Mets would never let our ground crew tailor the infield an average of 10 a game and second leading scorer (18.6) last season. Wulfsberg set Big Ten (138) and Iowa (191) assist records.

Detroit, Buffalo Take Playoff Wins By The Associated Press Detroit Pistons Coach Herb Brown knows the score: "There's no tomorrow for either of us now." The Pistons, despite Milwaukee's torrid 63 per cent shooting from the field, defeated the Bucks 126-123 to knot up their best-of-three National Basketball Association qualifying round at one game each. "Now the pressure is on both of us." Brown said after Thursday night's victory. In the other NBA qualifying game. Buffalo defeated Philadelphia 95-89 to take a 1-0 lead in their best-of-three series. In the best-of-seven quarter-finals. Cleveland downed Washington 80-79 to even their series at 1-1 and Phoenix stopped Seattle 116-111. Bob Lanier's 35 points, including 17 in the third period, and George Trapp's hot final quarter paced the Pistons to victory. Trapp scored 11 of his 13 points in the last 12 minutes while Milwaukee got 33 points from Brian Winters and 29 from Bob Dandridge. But it was the Bucks' team shooting that dazzled the victorious Pistons. •'They were uncanny shooting the ball." said Lanier. "I hope they don't shoot that well again." Free throws by Detroit, par- tieularly in the closing minutes, killed the Bucks' chances of pulling it out. There were 63 fouls called in the game — 25 in the final quarter. "This was a strange game." said Bucks' Coach Larry Costello. "The fouls determined the game. There were some fouls in key situations . . . It's tough to lose on free throws. I'd rather they didn't call anything." The series- returns to Milwaukee Sunday for the deciding game.

Not noted •fortheir defense, the Braves, one of the NBA's highest scoring teams, blanked Philadelphia's hot-shooting Fred Carter from the field and held George McGinnis to only one field goal in the final quarter. Carter wound up with 28 points and McGinnis 20. The Braves, who lost the regular season series to Philadelphia 4-3. return to Buffalo with a chance to win the series. LAWN- Believe in it.

"A National League atmos- p h e r e. . ' ' Thurman Munson called it. Thursday's throng was all pro-Yankee, except for those folks wearing powder blue visiting uniforms and living in the Minnesota dugout. The paid crowd of 52.613 was the largest for the proud old ballpark on opening day in 30 years. While the Yanks were unveiling their redone park, two other American League games were played. The California Angels downed the Kansas City Royals 5-1 and the Chicago White Sox beat the Boston Red Sox 8-4. For 2" a innings the Yankees appeared in awe of their new surroundings. Rudy May's first four pitches were balls, Dan Ford hit the next one well over 400 feet for a two-run homer and then a pig wandered onto the field. May hit a batter and walked three, the Yankees committed two errors, the Twins stole a base in each of the first three innings and suddenly it was 4-0 and the Yanks were probably thinking of signing 85-year-old Bob Shawkey, winner of the first game ever played in the stadium, who threw out the ceremonial first ball. But at 3:44 p.m. there was an explosion, something akin to the old 5 o'clock lightning. A walk. Gamble's triple and singles by Willie Randolph and pinch hitters Lou Piniella and Otto Velez. along with a stolen base and a wild pitch, and the Yankees led 5-4. Relievers Dick Tidrow and Sparky Lyle protected the slender edge until the bottom of the eighth — just a little after 5 o'clock — when six more runs poured across. Gamble contributed a run-scoring double and Mickey Rivers and Chris Chambliss added two-run singles. Angels 5. Royals 1 California's Nolan Ryan, a loser in his first start despite yielding only one hit in seven innings, shackled Kansas City on-.:four-'hits and nine- strikeouts.,. ' '^ "It's the same old Ryan." observed Kansas City's John Mayberry. "That man throws harder than anybody I've ever seen in a baseball park."

Kingman's Three-Run Homer Stuns Chicago; Bucs to 4-0 By The Associated Press Dave ''King Kong'' Kingman hasn't leaped over any tall buildings yet. but he has learned to hit baseballs over them.

Kingman said he didn't think he would like to play there regularly.

Then, with the Mets trailing 8-7 in the ninth, he followed singles by John Milner and Del Unser with a tremendous smash over the left field wall off Tom Detlore. the same pitcher he had victimized Wednesday. "He iDettorei had given me an inside fast ball the previous day and he came back with the same pitch." said the Mets' muscle man. "Yes. I was surprised because I was looking fqr something else.. I just couldn't let it goby."
