Bucs 9 Candelaria Surprised at Himself; Hurls Shutout By The Associated Press John Candelaria was in mid- season form. He went a solid nine innings. Don Gullett was in midseason form, too. He went a solid six, then got the hook. Candelaria, Pittsburgh's rangy young left-hander, stifled San Francisco on a measly two hits Sunday and — surprising even himself — shut out the Giants 3-0. Gullett, Cincinnati's strong young left-hander, shut out Montreal for six innings on just five hits, then Manager Sparky Anderson, alias Cap'n Hook, came along and gave the ball to Pat Darcy ... who gave up two more hits in the final three innings of the Reds' 7-0 victory over the Expos. In Sunday's other National League games. New York beat Houston 4-2. St. Louis stifled San Diego 3-1. Atlanta edged Philadelphia 4-3 and Los Angeles defeated Chicago 5-4 in 10 innings. Candelaria gave up only one legitimate hit, Willie Montanez' double in the fifth inning. The other was a first-inning fluke, when shortstop Frank Taveras lost Bobby Murcer's pop-up in the sun. "Montanez hit a good pitch, a fastball inside," Candelaria conceded. And he admitted he didn't expect to be around at Tlmw H.rald, Carroll, la.

Reds 7, Expos 0 Gullett, in his first start of the year, got the bulk of his support from Johnny Bench and Dave Concepcion, each of whom hit his second homer of the year. "I wasn't really consistent with my fastball the way I wanted to be," Gullett said. "I had some good pitches, with the exception of a real good fastball. I didn't break a sweat the whole game. I had good location on my pitches. That's what I was happy about, that and some good off-speed stuff."

Cards 3, Padres 1 Willie Crawford drove in two runs for the Cardinals with a homer and a sacrifice fly. and John Curtis struggled through nine innings by scattering 10 San Diego hits for his first victory of the season. St. Louis scored in the second when left fielder Johnny Grubb dropped Reggie Smith's fly ball for a three-base error and Crawford hit his fly ball. In the fifth, Crawford homered, Ron Fairly walked Don Kessinger doubled. Mike Ivie homered in the ninth for the Padres. Braves 3, Phillies 2 Atlanta's Dave May hadn't had a hit all year — until Larry Christenson tried to slip one too many fastballs past him. The results was a two-run homer in the sixth inning that beat the Phils. Dodgers 5, Cubs 4 Los Angeles put together its first two-game winning streak of the young season — and it took an unearned run in the 10th inning to get it. Ted Sizemore was safe when first baseman Andre Thornton juggled a throw by shortstop Dave Rpsello. John Hale bunted him to second and he scored on Ron Cey's single to center field. Henry Cruz hit his first major league homer for the Dodgers, a three-run shot.

Bench-Clearing Incident in Cleveland; Twins Beat Palmer CLEVELAND (AP) — Frank Robinson was adamant, Chuck Tanner was innocent and Bert Campaneris was reticent. The three were talking about a bench-clearing brawl and the incident that incited it in the sixth inning of Oakland's 9-1 victory over Cleveland Sunday. In the only other American League game Sunday, Minnesota got a three-run homer from Larry Hisle and defeated Baltimore 7-2, The Texas-Detroit, Kansas City-New York, Boston-Chicago and CaliforniaMilwaukee games were rained out. Cleveland Manager Robinson referred to Campaneris, the A's' veteran shortstop, when he said, "They can't hide him from us all year." The incident that sparked that threat of retaliation came with Oakland holding a seven- run lead and just after Cleveland scored its run with no outs in the sixth. Cleveland third baseman Buddy Bell singled up the middle and Boog Powell followed with a grounder to second baseman Phil Garner. Campaneris took the toss, made his pivot on the base and his throw struck the sliding Bell in the right temple. The two came up fighting and both benches cleared. The trouble apparently began brewing the previous inning when Cleveland pitcher Jim Kern hit both Don Baylor and Campaneris with pitches, although Oakland Manager Tanner said, "I don't think they threw at Baylor when he got hit, or at Campy when he got it. "I know Campy was trying to make the double play when Bell got hit," Tanner added. "He just didn't get down in time." """I was just trying to make the double play, that's all," Campaneris said quietly. "But I know Robinson ordered him (Kern) to throw at me." Robinson steamed when told about the statements by Campaneris and Tanner. "On that play, he threw right down at Buddy," Robinson said. "He had ho intention of throwing to first base. Then, to really show what a coward he is, he kicks the guy when he's down." As for the charge he ordered Kern to throw at Campaneris, Robinson said, "The next time he plays us, he'll know he's been thrown at. If we're gonna intentionally hit someone, we'd hit (Joe) Rudi. He's the guy who's been hurting us." Mike Torrez, 2-3, scattered NITE KAPPERS LEAGUE Team Standings Points Weidner Service 92 Carroll Roofing Co.

Glenn Abbott gave up just one hit in the ninth. Rudi supplied the muscle, hitting his second two-run homer against the Indians in two days. Twins 7, Orioles 2 Tom Burgemeir, 1-0. relieved Twins starter Joe Decker in the first after he had walked four Orioles. He shut the door the rest of the way, with the exception of. a fourth-inning homer by Doug Decinces that briefly tied the game at 2-2. > "I've never pitched that long ever in the major leagues," Burgemeir said. ".But the weather was cool and I didn't throw a whole lot of pitches." ... .. The loser was Baltimore ace Jim Palmer, 3-2. who said. "I just didn't make very good pitches." Listed as Winner Mississippi College's James Trimble crossed the finish line in sixth place in the 440-yard intermediate hurdles, but officials listed him as the winner of the event. Trimble had a five-yard lead as he cleared the last hurdle in the Gulf South Conference Track and Field Championship event Sunday, but a hairy competitor knocked him down, and nearly out of the race, Officials said Trimble's competitor, a large black shaggy dog, was disqualified. The dog apparently slipped past the gate-keeper and was dashing across the track when he collided with Trimble. Trimble struggled to his feet to cross the finish line. Officials credited him with the victory because of the lead he held before interruption/ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^•^^^•^^•^^•^^^•^^^•^^^^^^•^^•^^•^^^^•^^•^^^•^^••^^•••^^•^^•••^^••^^•^^•li^^lil^e^i^^IlP APRIL FOOLISH DAYS!!
