Here If' Hodges Shifting May Put Top Met Sticks on Bench By MIKE RECHT classic, with the J964 St. Louis 1 Auectittd Prwt Sports Wrltw Cardinals. That, however, does NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Mets who scored 27 runs on 37 liits against (he Atlanta Braves won't all be in the starting lineup against Baltimore in the first two games of the World Series. While nothing may succeed like, success, Manager Gil Hodges of the Mets has liis own method of achieving it. It's called platooning. So. with Baltimore opening the series Saturday and Sunday with left-handers Mike Cuellarj and Dave McNally, Hodges has decided to counter with his right-handed lineup of Ron Swoboda, Donn Clendenon, Ed Charles and maybe Al Weis. Of the four, Weis was Ihe only one-to get into a game against Atlanta's 'three right-handed starting pitchers. He was a defensive replacement and went hitls in one at bat. Replacing them on the bench will: be: Right-fielder Art Shamsky the top hitter in the series with seven hits in 13 at bats after hitting, a powerful .300 during the regular season; Se'cond baseman Ken Boswell, « late season hero who hit .279 and then was 4-for-12 against the Braves, including a two-run hom'er and run-scoring single in the finale; Third baseman Wayne Garrett, .a .215 hitter during the regular season who canie through with* 5-for-13 against Atlanta, including a two-run homer that put She Mets ahead to stay in the tlinclier; Aild first baseman Ed Kranepool; a .238 performer during the ;season and 3-for-12 in the playoffs. ' ! SWoboda, in right field, w a s j another hero down the stretch I finishing with a .235 average driving in 52 runs in only 327 a bats; Clendenon, at first base hit 248 with 16 home Huns-and 51 RJ3I in only 331 at bats; Weis, at second base, hit onl .215- with little power, am Charles, at third base, managed onlyi a .207 average. HJwever, Hodges said todaj that" because Cucllar throws a scnwvball (hat makes him verj effective against right-handers he might, make 11 platooning ex- ceptjon and stick with Boswell instead of switching to \Veis. not include Hodges and the coaching staff. Hodges was in seven series as a player and coach Yogi Berra was in 13 as a player and one as a manager. Coaches Rube 1 Walker and Joe Pignatano were in one each. Hodges will stick with the rest of the lineup that bombarded Atlanta--Tommie Agee, Cleon Jones, Jerry Grote and Bud Harrelson, all right-handed hitters.

Rod Carew was the American League batting champion How many hits did he get in the playoff? One?" Carew, who hit .332 during the regular season, beat out an infield hit in his first at-bat in the playoffs and then went O-for-14 as the Orioles swept three games. Robinson, a .234 hitter during the season, rapped seven hits in 14 appearances in the playoffs and made his usual standout stops at third base. "I think the World Series will create a Jot more interest this year than in a long time because of the Mete," Robinson said. By LEROY MORGANTI OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- "He learns very quickly, retains everything you tell him, works diligently at his position, has a tremendous natural ability and never gets upset in a tight situation." That, according to Mississippi quarterback coach Jake Gibbs a modest description of Archie Manning, The Associated Press Back of the Week in the nation after smashing six Southeastern Conference records in a 33-32 losing effort against Alabama last week. Manning, a 6-foot-3, 198-pound redhead from Drew, completed 33 of 52 passes for 436 yards and two touchdowns and carried 15 times for 104 yards and Ole Miss' three other scores. Gibbs, a former Rebel quarterback great who divides his :ime between catching for the Vew York Yankees and coaching for the Rebs, is no more extravagant in praise of Manning than others who have watched him )ick apart defenses with bullet- ike passes and powerful run- ling"I'd like to have him righ low," said Henry Lee Parker chief scout of the New Orleans Saints of the National Footbal lieaguc. "He has all the ability of a pro quarterback." Even more conservative John ly Vaughl, who has watched ;reat quarterbacks during his !3 years as Mississippi coach ias trouble containing himsel when he talks about Manning. "He's terrific, just terrific,' said Vaught in what amounts to almost a .speech for him. The shy and modest Manning, a junior, seems almost embar- ·assed by the praise and selec- ion as Back of the Week, anc constantly turned the talk from limself to his team. "We planned to throw a lol against Alabama," he said. "We vere hitting so we continued to Louisiana State, and it w a s more satisfying "because we won that game." A good student majoring in government, Manning wants a pro career, but he still doubts his own ability despite the praise of Parker and other pro scouts. "I have a real ambition to play pro, but there are so many fine athletes it's not going to be easy," he asaid.

Then, Van Brownson go hurt and Tagge returned to duty. ' " . ' . Minnesota probably woul rather have taken its chances with Brownson. Tagge riddled them with 15 pass completions in 23 attempts for 219 yards, in eluding touchdown passes of 38 and 43 yards to Larry Frost, and added 02 yards running for a net day's work of 301 yards.

Haywood started at center for the American 'Basketball Association Denver Rockets, who signed him this summer even though he had two years of eligibility remaining at the University of Detroit. P l a y i n g with a basicall; young squad and against thi Washington Capitols, who las year were the ABA champion as the Oakland Oaks, Haywooc collected 24 points and keyc; Denver's fast break. He was the high point man for the Rock els, who may ride to the league crown this year with the 6-9 Haywood on their side. With Caps star forward Rick Barry silting out the game be cause of a strained knee suf fered in a weekend practice Haywood teamed with muscular Byron Beck of Denver to dominate the boards and bring the Rockets back from a sluggish third period when they fell behind by 11 points. Haywood, who signed with Denver for a long-term contract reportedly worth $250,000, rammed a stuff shot in the basket early in the fourth period to bring the Rockets only five points behind. Moments later, Denver took a slim lead and held on to the end when guard Jeff Congdon flipped in a 25- foot three pointer for the victory, 106-105. Slow at the beginning of the game, Haywood began to flex his board strength after new Capitol coach Al Binaehi inserted 7-1 strongman Ron Taylor, a rookie from USC in the second half. "When Taylor started pushing, Haywood started going," said a conrtside observer. Harge, the "Big I,-!' returns for his third season and at 6'9" gives the Caps adequate rebounding. He is currently receiving stiff competition from second-year man 'Jim' Eakins (6'11") and rookie center Ron Taylor (71") from Southern Cal. With Barry's return, the Caps appear to be strong again at forward. Frank Card will probably replace Moe in the front court. Card, who the Caps received from Carolina for'Moe, is 67" and has two years playing experience. The back court is exceptionally strong for Washington. Bianchi can draw from "Rookie of the Year" Warren Armstrong, playmaker Larry Brown, sharpshooter Henry Logan, service-veteran Mike Barrett, and rookie Roland Taylor of LaSalle. Aimslrong severely injured :iis knee in practice and was to return to Washington Wednesday. It is feared he will have :o undergo surgery which will sideline him six to eight weeks. Armstrong averaged 21.5 points a game last year. Brown's return is certainly a boost to the Caps. The 29-year- old North Carolina ' grad was slated to be Davidson College's new basketball coach, but in stead has returned to his role of playmaker. Logan, who averaged 12 points, and a game high of 34 last year, lends considerable scoring punch to the bench. Barrett conies to the Caps after starring on the U.S. Gold Medal Olympic team in Mexico. . In Tuesday's game Denver rookie Spencer Haywood scored 24 points, 20 in the second half. Larry Jones scored 22 before fouling out. Harge scored 26 for Washington and led all scorers.

In addition, the ABA has signed four top NBA officials for the coming campaign. Asked about a .possible merger during a news conference hailing the signing of Beaty, Hardy answered: I feel a merger eventually ivill come about with two teams in Los Angeles -- unless Mr. Cooke wants to move the Lakers. I definitely think two Yearns can operate successfully in Los Angeles."

It's easy to sit down and talk of shuttling the Los Angeles Stars, but we want no part of it." However, Kirst indicated that f his club can remain in Los Angeles under a merger agreement he would favor such ac- ion, which requires a unanimous vote in the ABA. The National and American ootball leagues merged two ·ears ago after the latter had nade player raids and the com- letition had driven players' con- racts to astronomical monetary evels.
