Respect Cincy? No One Told Phillies • ' By The Associated Press The Cincinnati Reds may be the defending World Champions, but they get no respect from the Philadelphia Phillies. The Phillies have shown this season that they can play ball with the Reds — in fact, they've shown that they can play it belter. "Nothing they do surprises me," said Philadelphia Manager Danny Ozark after his team beat the Reds 6-1 Sunday and won the deciding match of a three-game series. The victory gave the National League East leaders a 4-2 edge so far in six games with Sparky Anderson's club. In a series earlier, the Phillies also won the set, two games to one. The Phillies out-hit, out- pitched and out-fielded Cincinnati and reliever Ron Reed seemed to personify all their elan. Reed came into the game with the bases loaded, none out and the Phillies leading 4-1 in the sixth inning] The relief pitcher then struck out Tony Perez and Johnny Bench, both dangerous hit- lers, and got pinch-hitter Ken Griffey on a weak pop fly. In the other National League games, the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Houston Astros 9-5 in the opener of a doubleheader before the nightcap was rained out; the San Francisco Gianls routed the New York Mets 9-2; the Montreal Expos edged the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4; the San Diego Padres nipped the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4, and the Atlanta Braves blanked the Wimbledon ism hOne Bapti Toug Beckenham, and rain washed out last Saturday's Nottingham final against Nastase with the scores tied at one set apiece and 1-1 in the deciding third set. Antonio Zugarelli of Italy played Connors in the first round. Martin Robinson of Britain faced the 140-mile-per- hour service of Tanner. Niki Spear of Yugoslavia was Naslase's opponent. The men were playing for a first prize of $21,875. The women's champion — women's play begins Tuesday — will earn $17,500. WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Ferdi Taygan, teen-age tennis player from UCLA, today faced the toughest Wimbledon baptism anyone could imagine: he opened the tournament on the famed center court against Arthur Ashe, the defending champion. Taygan, of Framingham, Mass., was playing in Britain for the first time. And he had to face one of the world's great stars before 17,000 fans on a court that has been the center of world tennis for more than 50 years. It was traditional for the defending champion to play the first match on the center court. Ashe was the lop seed, but had to prove himself after some recent unimpressive performances since coming to England a little more than a week ago. He was knocked out of the big warmup event, a tournament at Nottingham, in the , first round. Since then he has been practicing and trying to get the feel of English grass. The stars in form included Jimmy Connors, the 1974 champion from Belleville, 111.; Roscoe Tanner, the big server from Lookout Mountain, Tenn., and Hie Nastase, the temperamental Romanian. Connors has played in two grass court events in England in two weeks, at Beckenham and Nottingham, and reached the final each time. Tanner beat him in the final at City Scores More league softball and baseball games were played during the weekend here in programs sponsored-by 'the City Recreation Dept. Scores, listed by league: Rainbow League — Miles Optical Lab 11-9 over H&B Builders. Ray Rowland Concrete 27-9 over Ehresman Packing. Delta Irrigation 10-6 over Garst-Thomas. H&B Builders 19-15 over Roark Realty. Minor League — Aztecs won forfeit over Shawnees. Mohawks 16-1 over Holcomb. Prairie League — Foxes 27-2 over Holcomb. Taurus 19-10 Chicago Cubs 5-0. After Reed cut the Reds down in the sixth, Ollie Brown did the same in the seventh. Brown stymied a Cincinnati rally with a perfect throw from right field. Doug Flynn singled to open the Reds' seventh and moved to second on a base hit by Dan Driessen. When Flynn atempted to score on Pete Rose's single to right, Brown nailed him at home. While Reed was knocking the Reds out of the game with his throwing and Brown with his fielding, starting Philadelphia pitcher Jim Kaat, 7-2, was clubbing them with his bat. He singled during a, three-run second inning, helping the Phillies to all the runs they needed. Astros 9, Pirates 5 Wilbur Howard's pinch single drove in the go-ahead Cromwell Fails to Qualify EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Nolan Cromwell, the University of Kansas quarterback, hit a hurdle and failed to qualify for the Olympic Games in the intermediate hurdles at the U.S. Track and Field Trials Sunday. Another Kansas trackster, Larry Jackson, failed to survive the semifinal round, but Kansas pole vaulter Terry Porter cleared 17 :i /4 feet to move into the finals Tuesday at Eugene. "I thought today was going to be my day," Cromwell said. "But I guess it wasn't. I was pleased.with how I was running 'til then." . Cromwell's trailing leg smacked the sixtfi hurdle as he was changing stride. "It took all my momentum away. It also took me out of the race," he said. ' JaCkson got off to a poor start ;in the 100-yard run and finished seventh with a time of :10.99. run as Houston scored five times in the eighth off relief pitcher Bob Moose and beat Pittsburgh. Tom Griffin pitched four hitless innings of relief for the Astros, raising his record to 51. A chilly drizzle fell throughout the game before the scheduled nightcap was washed out. Play was halted intermittently for the grounds crew to spread sawdust around home plate and the bases. Giants 9, Mets 2 Ed Halicki, 5-10, knocked in three runs with two singles and, aided by late relief help from' Randy Moffitt, pitched San Franci§co past New York. The Gjants opened the game with a five-run, first-inning burst during which they produced five hits. The key blows were Derrel Thomas' run- scoring double, Ken Reitz' two-run single and Halicki's two-run single off New York left-hander Jon Matlack, 8-2. Expos 5, Dodgers 4 Pete Mackanin's three-run homer capped a five-run outburst in the sixth inning that gave Montreal its victory over Los Angeles. Mackanin, who delivered a game-winning single in Montreal's 2-1 victory over Los Angeles Saturday, smashed a 2-0 pitch from loser Burt Hooton into the left field bleachers for his fifth homer of the season. Padres 5, Cardinals 4 Johnny Grubb's run-scoring double snapped a tie in the ninth inning and lifted San Diego over St. Louis. Grubb's hit came off former Padres hurler Bill Grief, 1-4, after the Cardinals had battled back and tied the score with two runs an inning earlier. Grief retired the Padres' Fred Kendall before pinch-hitter Gene Locklear stroked a single to left. Grubb, who earlier contributed a two-run single»in a three-run Padres fourth inning, then delivered a towering drive to left center that Bake McBride narrowly missed catching. Braves 5, Cubs 0 Darrell Chancy drove in three runs with a pair of doubles, Rowland Office hit in his 25th straight game and right- hander Dick Ruthven hurled a four-hitter, leading Atlanta over Chicago. Ruthven, 8-6, never permitted a runner past second base as the Braves won their third game from the Cubs in two days.

The Indians, though, have a chance to do something about it. The Indians outlasted the Kansas City Royals 11-8 Sunday for thejr eighth victory in 10 games. During that stretch, however, they've gained exactly one-half game on the New York Yankees, season-long leaders in the American League East. Meanwhile, the Orioles blanked the Texas Rangers 2-0 for their sixth consecutive triumph, a streak that has seen them only stay even with the Yankees, who ran their own winning string to six games with a 6-3 triumph over the Chicago White Sox. In other AL games, the Boston Red ,Sox nipped the California Angels 4-3 in 11 innings, the Oakland A's Cleveland's Jim Bibby Big Factor in 'Royal Disaster' over Aries. Pee Wee League — Wildcats 1-0 over Deerfield. Huskies won forfeit over Holcomb. CLEVELAND (AP) — Those waiting for Cleveland's surprising pitching staff to collapse probably were nodding sagely by the end of the fourth inning Sunday. But, despite Kansas City's eight runs on eight hits and one error in that inning, the Indians managed to hold on for an 11-8 triumph. The main reason the Indians were able to go into their half of the fourth with a 9-8 lead intact was pitcher Jim Bibby, demoted from the starting rotation earlier this season and now working long relief. Bibby came in with none out, seven runs in and the bases loaded. Nine Royals batters already had been to the plate in the fourth, but Bibby ended the threat with only Hal McRae's run-scoring sacrifice fly and a harmless single by Al Cowens marring his work. He then went three more innings, allowing only an infield single by Tom Poquette. Don Hood and Stan Thomas then split the final six Kansas City outs. Rec Schedule "Bibby did a heck of a job," said Royals Manager Whitey Herzog. "For that matter, so did Hood. The Indians executed well. They had three hit-and-runs and bunted successfully three times. They're playing good ball." The Royals dropped two of three games to the Indians- only the third series they've lost all season. And, after winning seven in a row, Kansas City now has lost three of four. "I didn't think we'd get back in it (after being down 9-0)," Herzog said. "We really haven't hit the ball well since the 21-run game (in Detroit last week). But they just beat us, we didn't beat ourselves." "It would have been a different game without those bunts," Cleveland Manager Frank Robinson explained. "And Bibby and Hood threw just great." In Cleveland's three-run second, Ray Fosse singled home the first of his four runs, Frank Duffy sacrificed runners to second and third and Duane Kuiper singled them in. The Indians scored six runs in the third, with Kuiper's sacrifice setting up a two-run double by Orlando Gonzalez and Fosse driving in two runs with a single. Fosse then gave the Indians an insurance run in the sixth, bunting home Charlie Spikes from third, and Rico Carty ended the scoring with a leadoff homer in the eighth— his fifth of the season. All 12 Kansas. City hits were singles, 11,of them off starter Jackie Brown and reliever Tom Buskey.

New York leads runner-up Cleveland by seven games as the two clubs begin a four- game series at Yankee Stadium tonight. The Indians led Kansas City 9-0 after three innings. The Royals rallied for eight runs in the fourth before Jim Bibby and two other Cleveland hurlers combined for six innings of shutout relief. Ray Fosse drove in four runs for the Indians while Rico Carty homered. Orioles 2, Rangers 'I Mike Cuellar checked Texas on three hits in outdueling Gaylord Perry. It was Texas' fifth consecutive loss and kept the Rangers five games behind KC in the AL West. Perry breezed through five innings without allowing a hit before Brooks Robinson doubled to lead off the sixth and Dave Duncan singled him home with the only run Cuellar needed. Yankees 6, White Sox 3 Thurman Munson's two-run single featured a five-run uprising against ex-Yankee Ken Brett. The loss was the 10th straight for the White Sox, who earlier had won 10 in a row and now own the longest losing and winning streaks in the American League this season. Red Sox 4, Angels 3 Rick Burleson's two-out single in the llth inning scored Bobby Darwin, who had doubled, as the Red Sox beat former teammate Dick Drago. Bobby Bonds' homer put California ahead 3-2 in the sixth inning and Boston tied it in the eighth on a walk to Carl Yastr- zemski and Jim Rice's two-out double. A's v 7j> Brewers 5 Don Baylor's homer off Bill Travers broke a 4-4 tie in the fifth inning and the A's went on to their fourth triumph in six games since the controversial — and since overruled — sale of stars Vida Blue, Joe Rudi and Rollie Fingers. Milwaukee's Robin Yount had a homer, a pair of doubles and a single and drove in three runs. Tigers 7, Twins 3 Rookie first baseman Jaso Thompson drove in four runs with a homer and single and rookie pitching sensation Mark Fidrych notched his sixth victory in seven decisions with seventh-inning help from John Killer. The Tigers scored all their runs off Bill Singer.

That's the situation for baseball and Charles O. Finley, as the Oakland owner was expected to file a multimillion dollar damage suit today, or Tuesday against Commissioner Bowie Kuhn and his office. Finley, who made his fortune in the insurance business, has gambled on the courts before and lost, while baseball, a sport fascinated by statistics, is batting .000 in recent legal tangles. Neil Papiano, Finley's lawyer, said Sunday from Los Angeles that he would file four or five causes of action seeking damages "in the neighborhood of $10 million" and asking an injunction against Kuhn's order nullifying Finley's $3.5 million sale of three star players. Papiano said the suit would be filed either in a state or federal court in California. "Whichever court we think will give us a quicker hearing," Papiano said. Finley, has been chasing Catfish Hunter in the California courts ever since 1974, "when arbitrator Peter Seitz ruled the star pitcher free because Finley breached Hunter's contract. He has lost once but, undaunted, Finley has appealed to a higher court. Papiano said he expects a decision from the California Court of Appeals shortly. Baseball also is on a losing streak, dropping its last two legal decisions. After Seitz ruled last December that an unsigned player could become a free agent after one year, the baseball owners went to federal court. Seitz' decision was upheld there, and again in the appeals court. There was no appeal to the Supreme Court. The Major League Players Association' has been on the winning side of all these decisions, and now faces a dilemma — whether to join forces with Finley, a long-time .adversary, or file an Independent action against Kuhn. "Obviously," said Marvin Miller, executive director of the Players Association, "we're not going to stand around while the powers-that- be attempt to ruin the careers of three players." "We can attach (join a'pre- vious suit) if we feel the action is properly brought," said Dick Moss, counsel for the Players Association. "But right now, we're waiting to see what the others do." ' The New York Yankees, who bought Vida Blue for $1.5 million, are expected to take legal action against Kuhn. They promise an announcement early this week. The Boston Red Sox, who bought Joe Rudi and Rollie Fingers for $1 million apiece, however, said they would not take any legal action. Arizona Hangs Up No. 2 Tag OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The Arizona press baseball brochure gave only one line to junior pitcher Bob Chaulk, but it was prophetic. Coach Jerry Kindall said of the slender left-hander: "A key to our success. He can throw strikes."' Chaulk threw plenty of strikes in the 30th College World Series and produced the Wildcats' first national championship in any sport. Arizona was stuck with a No. 2 tag all season because of its inability to beat cross-state rival Arizona State, but in Saturday night's College World Series final overwhelmed Eastern Michigan 71. "A lesser team would have been eliminated four games ago," said Kindall of the team that became the sixth in series history to lose its first game, then go on to capture the title. Arizona, 56-17, started the series on a frustrating note, losing 7-6 to top-ranked , Arizona State in 10 innings after it was only one strike away from victory. It was the Wildcats' seventh straight loss to Arizona State. "Nothing has been easy for this club but I couldn't be prouder of them," continued the 40-year-old Kindall, who, played eight years in the majors with the Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins. "They were criticized and sometimes ridiculed but they never stopped. They just dug in harder." From ashes, Arizona struck back through the losers' bracket, winning five straight, including victories over Eastern Michigan and Arizona State to reach the final. In the final, a 14-hit attack and Chaul were more than Eastern could handle.

The marathon meet ran Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on four fields in Finnup Park. It took in 24 teams from 12 towns in three states. A pair of the clubs forfeited after paying their entry fee, however. Dodge Sand — rated among the top clubs in the state — had a rough chore. The Ford Countians were upset 11-1 by Garden City Farm Center in their second tourney appearance. That dropped them into the long and drawn-out losers bracket. But they came back for seven victories (six on Sunday) and wound up as meet kings. Pappas Concrete of Holcomb placed second. That club was undefeated through the winners bracket. But Dodge City Sand came out of the losers bracket to edge Pappas 9-6 in a nine-inning thriller. Dodge Sand then repeated 12-8 (in regulation seven innings) to "take the marbles." Garden City Farm Center placed third, eliminated 11-7 by Dodge Sand in the last losers-bracket contest. Motor Electric of Garden City finished fourth, sidelined 19-8 by Dodge City Sand. Three of the tourney's games went extra innings. Pour House Lounge of Colorado Springs, Colo., nicked Home Oil of Ness City by 25-16 in the first round of the losers bracket. That 41-run marathon went n innings — four over regulation. In the next round of the losers bracket,. Craig Construction of Garden City sidelined Cross Manufacturing of Lamar by 8-7 in 10 V frames. Crowd sizes were big throughout the three days of action. But Sunday's crowd for the title showdown at Fansler Field was huge — with seating space at a premium. Ron Schwartz, second baseman for Pappas Concrete, won the tourney's coveted Most Valuable Player award. The trophy for best team sportsmanship went to Pour House Lounge of Colorado Springs. Pour House Lounge and Hutchinson Oil of Russell (both making their first-ever Garden City showings) tied for fifth and sixth places in the meet. Pappas Concrete and Garden City Farm Center each placed three players on the all-tourney team. Dodge City Sand and Motor Electric each had two. Dodge City placed brothers Tom and Bob Seidl. Tom plays left field for the tourney champs, and Bob is the roving outfielder. Honored from Motor Electric were pitcher Ron Palmer and second baseman Butch Knight. • Pappas Concrete placed first baseman Alan Stegman, second baseman Ron Schwartz, and shortstop Dave Novack on the all-tourney squad. Honored from Garden City Farm Center were pitcher RonLeona'rd, first baseman Ken Golay, and third baseman Ron German. Winners Bracket Dodge City Sand drew bye.
