FAVMTftVItU, MMUUHAS f Apfif Gibson Chokes Mets With Three Hitter By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The boo-birds were swarming all around Roberto Clcmcntc tut Willie Stargell's big bat kept "them from settling down for tong. Stargell unloaded two long- distance home runs Sunday, the second one Clemente aboard to tie the score in the eighth inning, and Pittsburgh topped Philadelphia G-5. ' . It was the fifth victory in six rtarts for the Pirates but Pittsburgh's fast start hasn't kept the fans off Clemente's back. The four-time batting champion crippled two rallies with double -piny halls and then committed a iwo-haso error in the outfield. When he came to bat in the eighth, the fans jeered. Clemente tipped his hat. look four balls for a walk and trotted home in front of Stargell's sec- nnd home run. which tied the £!imc\ Moments later.

Stiirgcll shrugged off the distance of his homers. "I'm just glad they went out," he said. "I wouldn't care if they scraped the walls." He said he had hit homers over the seldom-cleared 430 sign before hut (hat he couldn't remember when. "I won't remember this one next year." he added. Philadelphia got off in front with consecutive triples by Kichie Allen and Johnny Callison and a homer by Deron Johnson providing three early runs. Bob Gibson stifled New York on three hits and the Cardinals won their third straight from the Mets. Two wild pitches by loser Tom Seaver helped the Cards to a pair of runs in the first inning and that was enough for Gibson's first victory of the year. Chicago rallied to beat Montreal with Ernie Banks' two-out, bases-loaded single driving in the winning run in the ninth inning. Mack Jones drove in four runs for the Expos, three of them with a home run. Montreal scored five unearned runs with the help of two errors by Don Kessinger, but it was Kcssin- gcr'.i ninth inning double that kept the Cubs' winning rally alive. Phil Niekro pitched a four-hitter and scored the only run of the opener as Atlanta shut out Cincinnati. Niekro, who struck out nine, opened the eighth inning with a single and came around when Tony Cloninger walked Hank Aaron, Orlando Cepeda and Clete Boyer. Cepeda's eighth-inning homer tied the nightcap and then Felipe Alou, who had a two-run homer earlier, singled home Sonny Jackson with the Braves' winning run in the ninth. Houston ended a five-game losing itreak by whipping Los Angeles with all the Astro runs coming on homers. Denis Menke, Doug Rader and Jim Wynn all connected with Rader's shot a three-run job. Don Wilson pitched a five-hitter to pick up the victory. W i l l i e McCovey stroke his third homer of the year and lifted his runs batted in total to eight in six games as the Giants whipped San Diego.

But the cool, cloudy day belonged to the droll, lanky Archer, a 29-year-old who's been a pro since 1963. He's won four previous, tournaments, two of them last year when his money-winnings went to more than $150,000. He started out one stroke back of Casper, but went ahead on the sixth hole when Buffalo Bill began plowing through his bogeys "like a 14-handicapper." He" was three strokes in front at the turn "and thinking I had a chance to win. But this is the kind of course that three strokes didn't make that much difference. You can't start playing stupid." He took a bogey on the next hole and moment?, later was a stroke behind when Coody rammed in an eagle putt on the lim on that closing string of jogeys, Archer regained the lead with a bird on the par 5 13 and saved it all with a desperate, scrambling par on the par five 15th. He put his second shot into the water in front of the green, pitched on and then holed a downhill, 13-foot putt. He closed out with five consecutive pars j u s t missing birdie on the final hole. And then came the presenta tion of the $20.000 ifrst prize and the famed green jacket. A; Goalby slipped it over his shoulders. Archer grinned like the roundup was over, and quipped: "I'm amazed they have one my size." Asked his size later, he replied, "forty two, extra long." And how about your shoe size?
