SPORTS Homers in 9th Nip Catfish Timei Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, April 19, 1976 By The Associated Press Catfish Hunter was rolling along, staring his second victory of the season in the face, when two light-hitting Twins derailed the New York Yankees' ace right-hander. "I give up lot of guys' first home runs." Hunter sighed "I'm used to it. It used to get me mad. but you can't do anything about it except try and get the next guy out." The Yankees were leading 4-2 in the top of the ninth and Hunter had limited the Minnesota Twins to just five hits. But that was before Lyman Bostock and Butch Wynegar came to the plate. Larry Hisle started the Twins' rally with a one-out single. Hunter then got a two- strike count on Bostock, who had not hit a home run in his 102 previous major league games. ''Munson (catcher Thurman) wanted the next pitch in the dirt." Hunter said, "but I reared back and tried to put a little extra on a breaking ball and threw it right down the middle." "I didn't think it was going out." said Bostock. whose blast over the 353-foot mark in rightcenter tied the game. "A guy who doesn't hit any home runs doesn't know when the ball is gone." Then came Wynegar. a 20- year-old rookie catcher with only five singles in 28 at-bats. "Trying to follow Rostock's act I didn't know what to expect." Wynegar said. "But Hunter threw me a slider about waist-high." The ball just cleared the right-field fence, Minnesota had a 5-4 victory and the Yankees had lost for the first time since opening day. trcstone DELUXE CHAMPION 4-ply polyester cord body A78-13 Blackwall.

Money, who homered in the fi'rst game, had run-scoring singles in the third and seventh innings of the nightcap. 8 76ers, Bucks Out of NBA Playoffs By The Associated Press Remember the home-court advantage, that much-ballyhooed edge for which various National Basketball Association teams scratched and clawed at each other through the final weeks of the regular season? Well, the Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks will have all summer to try and find out where it went. Both teams were eliminated from the NBA playoffs Sunday in the type of games in which the home-court advantage is supposed to be most prominent — close, hard-fought, pressure-packed contests, where everything is on the line. Both were playing before enthusiastic crowds at 'their home arenas — and both were beaten. The Buffalo Braves, trailing by as many as 11 points in the third period, nipped Philadelphia 124-123 in overtime; the Detroit Pistons, whose 36-46 regular season record equals the worst of any team ever to reach the NBA playoffs, edged Milwaukee 107-104. Both were the deciding games of best-of-three preliminary round series, and the survivors are now matched againt the top clubs in the two conferences.

By Linus Gob/irsch If LACIE is the answer, then what is the question? Well . , . it might end up as the answer to "How can the government spend a lot of money?", or it could be the answer to "How can we accurately predict crop results without on-sight inspection?". Scientists are hoping it answers the second question since, if so. planning for U.S. farmers could be greatly simplified. LACIE is the fast way of saying Large Area Crop Inventory Experiment. Purpose of the experiment is to determine better ways of obtaining information on growing crops by satellite surveillance. Specifically, the tests involve a special kind of "photography" . . . using instruments which measure the amounts and intensities of heat or light reflected from the land. Researchers say there -is a good chance the new devices can become sophisticated enough to accurately report crop conditions not only in the United States, but from any place in the world. • ; against the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors in Oakland Tuesday and Buffalo begins play against the Boston Celtics in Boston Wednesday.

But while Messersmith was having control trouble, Wynn — another former Dodger — walloped a three-run homer to help the Braves beat Los Angeles 76. "I'm glad it's over. I'll tell you that." said Messersmith, who gave up three walks and three hits in his brief appearance. "I was nervous at first and I felt fluid only in the-last jnnirigTI felt pressure from not having pitched for so long." Messersmith had hoped to , pitch longer than just four innings and let Atlanta Manager Dave Bristol know about it. '"I'm a bull." Messersmith told the manager when informed that he was leaving the game early. "I'm the last guy in the world that wanted to take him out of a ballgame." said Bristol.
