Tiger, Emile Wait NEW YORK (AP) - The hard work was all over for Dick Tiger and Smile Griffith today but the hours began dragging for the two champions who meet in a 15-rounder for Tiger's middleweight title at Madison Square Garden Monday night. This' will be my 13th title fight," said Griffith, "and always the hardest part is waiting for the bell." 'It's a long wait," admitted Tiger, a veteran of five middleweight title engagements. They completed their boxing prparations in two-round drills Friday at their camps in the Catskill Mountains. They will loosen up with gym work over the weekend. Tiger boxed two rounds with Candy McFarland at his camp at the Grossinger. Country Club and returned to New York Friday night. He was to exercise in the Garden today. * * * "I feel great," said the 36- year-old Nigerian. "I'll have to be at my best to defeat Griffith. He's the fastest opponent I've ever had and I think I'll have to go 15 rounds." Griffith, training at the Concord Hotel in Kiamesha Lake, boxed two rounds with Junius Hinton. He looked very sharp. He had been scheduled to go a third round with Ike Jenkins, but after the second round with Hinton, trainer and co-manager Gil Clancy ended the drill. "That's enough," he said. "You're ready Emile.. No use leaving it in the gym." ^iiiWHiniiiiiiiiniiiiiiinniniiiniiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii: 1 COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, APRIL 53, IBM PAQE BIX HANlfjNGS By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS America" League W. L. Pet.

Met Virus Infects Boyer's Fielding Sandy Surprised By Going Route By JOE MOOSHIL Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) - One of the most surprised baseball players when Sandy Koufax went the distance and struck out 11 hi- cago Cubs in a 2-1 Los Angeles victory Friday was Sandy Koufax, Koufax, who ended his marathon holdout only three weeks ago, held the Cubs to six hits in recording his second victory in as many decisions. It was the third start for Koufax, who previously failed to go beyond six innings. Koufax held the Cubs hitless in the first three innings, yielded three hits and a run in the fourth and then began humming like the Koufax who won 26 games and the Cy Young Award, cap so I kept going there to get moisture and rub up the ball.

In the junior high division, Paragould scored five points to Blytheville's two and Osceola's one. This was over nine holes. Bill Dickey of Paragould had a 42. Other low scorers: White, Osceola, 49; J. Rose, BlytheviUe, 45; Bishop, Blytheville, 46, and Chiles, Osceola, by MURRAY CHASS Asoseiated Press Sports Ken Boyer would like to stop fielding like a New York Met, and the Cincinnati Reds would like to start hitting like Frank Robinson. Boyer, the National League's best fielding third baseman while with St. Louis last year, committed errors that contributed to Atlanta's 8-4 victory over the Mets Friday night. The Reds, meanwhile, again failed to play their role as preseason pennant favorites by dropping their sixth straight game 9-7 to Phiadlelphia. Boyer made only 12 errors all last season but already has five this year, all in the last three games. Two of the miscues came in the third inning when the Braves erupted for three runs and a 5-0 lead. The Reds did some erupting of their own for the first time this season, but it wasn't enough to solve their problems. Their 11-bit display raised the team batting average to .241, a level far below team mark of .273 and even further below Frank Robinson's .417. Robinson is the slugging outfielder whom the Reds traded to the Baltimore Orioles during the winter in an attempt to strengthen their pitching. That strength hasn't been visible, but the weakness at the plate has. The seven runs against the Braves marked the first time this year the Reds have scored more than four runs in a game. They alsi have hit only four home runs as a team, the same number Robinson has. "It's a good ball club," Manager Don Heffner insisted. "They're all breaking their necks to snap out of this. Our pitching has been good and so has the fielding. We've made some errors, but we just haven't been getting the tough run in." Or the easy one either. In other NL games, Los Angeles edged Chicago 2-1, St. Louis stopped Pittsburgh 7-5 and Houston trimmed San Francisco In the only American League game, California nipped Minnesota 2-1. Rain washed out Chicago at Kansas City and De.roit at Washington. Curt Flood's fifth-inning three-run homer snapped Pitts- 2-0. burgh's winning streak at sis games .The blow broke the 44 deadlock created by Willie Stargell's three-run homer in the top of the inning. Home runs by Joe Morgan and Jim Gentile stopped San Francisco's winning string at five. The homers backed the eight-hit pitching of Dave Giusti, whose three hits were the first for an Astro pitcher this season. Champions Can't Win In Sunny Southern Cal Rain Keeps Doug Lead Dry DALLAS, Tex. (AP) - Doug Sanders was shooting one over par and was in grave danger of losing his lead in the Dallas Open . Golf Tournament when they told him to forget the whole thing—the round had been canceled because of rain and lightning. Dapper Doug had played five holes and was preparing for a birdie putt on the sixth when the cancellation came Friday. So he was set to start out today with a two-stroke lead over Miller Barber, Ken Still and Bob Goalby. Sanders had fired a four-under-par 67 in the opening round Thursday. * * * Prospects of the second round being replayed today were not too promising, however, since more rain was forecast. Gene Littler fired a five-under- par 66 Friday before the rains came and would have had a 138 Dow Finsterwald also shot a 68 for 138. R.H. Sikes had a 69 for 139. If the second round is gotten in today, there will be 36 holes Sunday to finish the tourna ment. ast year. "When I got in trouble in the fourth I reached back for a little something extra and there it 1 was," laughed Koufax. "From then on my rhythm, my stuff, my control. . .everything ieemed to get better. It really surprised me. * * * "As far as I'm concerned this s still spring training for me," said Koufax. "Sure the games nean more, but I've been at it only three weeks. Koufax seemed to be nervous on the mound and kept going to iis cap, wiping his head. "It was cold and my hands were so dry I was afraid the ball would start slipping," said Koufax. "The only place there was any moisture was under the ANAHEIM, Calif.
