Still In Lost Place flMtt. MM-. Ap* tt, IMf · ft Four Hitter Silences Cardinals tr THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Clyde King and Jim Davenport ipeak lavishly about t h e Sitting exploits of Willie Me- Covey, but the towering slugger it content to speak softly while carrying hit big bat. "I don't want to talk about it too much because I'll probably go Into i slump," he said after clobbering Houston over the head with two game-winning three-run homers Sunday as San Francisco swept the Astros 4-2 and 85. But King,, manager of the Gianti. and infielder Davenport have done plenty of talking, praising the 6-foot-5 first baseman as the top slugger in the National League. "I had an awesome fear of McCovey at a rival." King added, "and now I have tremendous respect for h i m as a slugger and hitter." McCovey certainly has been living up to that calling this season, leading the league with eight homers and 21 runt batted in. McCoyey's big bat carried the Giants into a tie for first place with Los Angeles in the NL West Division after the Dodgers dropped Atlanta out of a share of the lead by routing the Braves 10-0 behind Don Button's four-hitter. Cleon Jones raised his league leading average to .441 wife five opener hits for ate BBL Including a '---" three-run homer in the ninth inning thct salvaged a J-fl victory for the New York Nets over Chicago after the Cubs had won In other fames. Philadelphia edged St Louis 1-* on Jerry Johnson's four-hitter. Montreal dropped Pittsburgh 4-2 and San Diego swept Cincinnati 5-2 and 10-9 in U innings. McCovey, 31-year-old slugger in his 10th big league season who has driven in 384 runs and hit 142 homers in the last four years after leading the league with 102 and 44 in 1963. capped a four-run seventh inning in the Cleveland Streak Lives Big Guns Push Athletics Past New Pilots After a couple of false starts. Sal Bando ha s rediscovered Seattle and Frank Robinson has repossessed New York. Oakland's Bando, O-for-10 at Seattle in two previous games, drove in seven runs Sunday with two homers and a single as the Athletics blitzed the expansion Pilots 13-5. Baltimore's Robinson. I-for-10 in a pair of losses to New York Friday night and Saturday, broke loose with two homers, four singles and eight RBI. leading the Orioles to a 6 0, 10-5 dou bleheader weep over the Yankees. Bando went on the biggest run-producing spree of his pro career in Seattle's Sicks' Stadium, which he had visited reg ularly as a Pacific Coast League standout before moving jp the majors. "I played here in 967 with Vancouver." said the msky Oakland third baseman. 'but those fences are closer low." Robinson, who had helped the Orioles win 41 of 54 games igainst New York from 1966 hrough '68 got them even with he Yankees this spring while aking the American League ead in homers, nine, and RBI, 12 and hiking his batting average to .373.

Bando sent the Athletics Unknowns Provide Excitement In Red-White Spring Battle LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Unknowns filtered the ranks of the starters and performed in true Razorback style Saturday as the Whites defeated the Reds 14-10 in the first of two intra- iquad games. The Whites drove 92-yards for the winning touchdown in the final minutes with sophomore tailback Bobby Nichols of Tulsa, Okla., bursting over from nine yards out. Bobby Field crushed an effective Red drive when he intercepted a Steve Walters pass at the goal line and returned it IS yards and out ot trouble as the clock ran out. That made a winner of quarterback Dave Lundquist. a leohomore from Fort Smith. Porker Diamond Squad Splits K-State Series Arkansas players managed to set several new records but ·plit a doubleheadcr Saturday with Kansas State in college baseball action. Jerry Blackwood hurled Arkansas to a 10-4 win in the opener but Kansas State pulled t 6-4 nightcap victory. Mark Jones, a junior from Tulsa Okla., slammed his record seventh home run of the year to break Lamar Dummond's school record of six homers set in 1957. Mike Pryor and Bill Dorothy each had two hits for the day bringing their season total to 32 also a new school mark for Arkansas. The old record was 11 bv Joe Nosari in I960. Arkansas is now 14-8. Kansas State is 12-5. . who started the day with the idea he would spend the afternoon quarterbacking for both teams. Quarterbacks Bill Montgomery, John Eichler and Walter Nelson, who are expected to share the field general duties next fall, missed the game because of surgery. And there were numerous o t h e r vacancies throughout both the defense and offense that were created by injuries and surgerv. Lundquist shared the quarter- hack duties with Walters for the first half and each quarter- hack took sole direction over his team at the halfway point. "I was pleased with hot quarterbacks." s a i d Coach Frank Broyles. In the winning drive, Lundquist hit on four of five ittempt passes to move the White squad from its own eight to the Red 28. From there, the Whites ran it in on two carries by Steve Jones, a Lundquist teeper and Nichols blast. The game opened up the second half into a passing duel between Lundquist and Walters. Lundquist connected on 14 o 26 attempts for 203 yards, while Walters, a Springdale junior, hit on 17 of 30 for 192 yards. The Reds held a 7-0 halftime lead after tailback Paul Blevins capped a 64-vard drive by diving over the middle from a yard out on fourth down. The Whites tied it, 7-7. in the third period on a two-yard plunge by sophomore tailbac Steve Jones of Memphis. Late in the third period, Wa ters rallied the Reds in a 76- yard drive to the White eigh but had to settle for a 27-yard field goal by Bill McClard. McClard. a sophomore from Norma, Okla., did all the place kicking for both sides. He blew a 34-yard attempt and a 57-yard kick barely fell shor of its mark.
