lrojans Mets Pin FlaH on Improved Defense Husker Frosli eal New York Nudges Montr Rei A 1. i Climbs Back to First Place I I A 4 i JAV By Associated Press Defense, says Gil Hodges, could be the name of the game in the final stages of the National League's East Division title countdown. To prove his point, the New York Mets keep digging in holding the line and scooping up everyone else's fumbles. "Our defense has picked up so much in recent games," the Mets' manager said before Monday night's game against the Montreal Expos. "A thing like that goes unnoticed, but it shows up In your pitching.

The pitching looks so much stronger." The Mets backed Danny Frisella's solid relief pitching with airtight play in the field before capitalizing on four unearned runs in the 10th inning and a 9-5 victory that sent them into a virtual first-place deadlock with idle Pittsburgh. New York trails the Pirates by less than one percentage point, with the third-place Chicago Cubs, who also had the day off, one game off the pace. Los i Angeles snapped San Diego's five-game winning string 12-4 and San Francisco outlasted Atlanta 7-5 in the only, other games played Monday night.

Mack Jones pinch double and sacrifice ly by Bobby Jones' bloop double kwas the only hit off Frisella; who retired the last 15 batters he faced before leaving for pinch hitter in the 10th.

Jerry Grote started the winning uprising with a single and pinch runner Rod Gaspar stole second. He took third as first 'baseman, Ron Fairly booted Bud Harrelson's bunt, then was trapped in a rundown on Tommie Agee's tap to third. But catcher John Bateman's throw hit Gaspar in the hand, and he came on to score the tie-breaking run. Wayne Garrett's run-scoring double, a walk, Ron Swoboda's sacrifice fly and Donn Clen-denon's run-producing single completed the rally, enabling the Mets to square their season series against the last-place Expos at eight victories apiece. "The breaks were on our side said Hodges.

"This Montreal club has been tough for us. They've been tough on everybody. Actually, there's no soft touch in this league at all." The Dodgers softened up San Diego with a six-run salvo in the first inning and coasted home as Wes Parker drove in three more runs with a single and double. Parker, with 102 RBI, is the first Dodger to top 100 since Tommy Davis and Frank Howard, eight years ago. Left-hander Claude Osteen survived 11 San Diego hits, Including a three-run homer by Ivan Murrell In the ninth, for his 15th victory of the year.

Frank Johnson, a mid-game replacement for ailing Willie McCovey, lined a two-run single off knuckleballer Phil Niekro in the sixth, keying a four-run rally that carried the Giants past the Braves. Frank Reberger squared his pitching mark ft 6-6 with help from veteran Don McMahon, who hurled perfect relief over the final 2 1-3 innings. NL Playoff Procedure Arranged San Francisco (LTD National League president Chub Feeney has made arrangements for playoff games in the event of a two or three-team tie for first place in the Eastern Division. Feeney said Monday that lots were drawn by the league championship series planning committee in New York Sept. 10, to determine the site of an Oct.

2 playoff game in the event of a two-team tie involving Pittsburgh, New York or Chicago. The Pirates would have to play in an enemy park no matter who was their opponent. The Cubs, who would be at home acninst Hittshnrch would have to travel to New York if tied with the Mets. New York would have the home field advantage in any case. In the event of a three-team tie, the club with the highest winning percentage would have the option of an opponent and a playing site.

The club with the second highest percentage gets the second option. Such a playoff arrangement would be held Oct. 2-3. If two or three clubs finish with identical winning percentages, their options would be determined by lot. By RANDY YORK The most competitive bowling league In Lincoln history will be baptized Wednesday.

"We're bringing together what we feel are 12 of the top bowlers in town," Hollywood Bowl proprietor Jim Dill says. Each of the 12 carries more than a 185 average. They will roll three-game blocks each Wednesday, at 5:30 p.m. for 28 weeks. More than "$1,500 in prize money will be on the line.

"Quite frankly," Dill says, "this league was not designed to be fun. It's just like bowling' in an All-Star on PBA We're out there, for one- reason to win J--j- 1 Dill will be a part of the financial competition. Others No. 3, MJ 9th By Associated Press Stanford's dramatic 34-28 victory over Arkansas last Saturday accounted for the only two. changes in The Associated Press' first weekly football poll of the regular season.

The Indians jumped from 10th to fourth, supplanting the Razorbacks, who fell to 11th but are still very much within shooting distance of the top 10. Missouri, which walloped Baylor 38-0, rose from 11th to 10th, the only newcomer in the top 10. Ohio State and Texas, which were idle, and Southern California, a 42-21 victor over' Alabama, retained the first three spots, but the Trojans' are right on the heels of Texas' defending national champs. Southern California risks its No. 3 ranking against ninth-ranked Nebraska this week in the only matchup of top 10 teams.

The Cornhuskers retained their pre-season ranking with a 36-12 conquest of Wake Forest. Twenty-four of the 40 football writers and broadcasters who participated in the poll cast their first place votes for Ohio State, which accumulated 728 points. Texas had six No. 1 votes and 657 points while Southern Cal was the top choice of seven voters but managed only 644 points. The other three first place votes went to Mississippi, Penn State and Michigan.

Rounding out the top 10 behind No. 4 Stanford are Mississippi, Notre Dame, Penn State, Michigan, Nebraska and Missouri. Two other Big Eight teams made the second 10, with Kansas State getting 13-J votes for 13th place and Oklahoma rated 18th with 40 ballots. AP I. Ohio State (24) 7M Texas 16) 0-0 6i7 3.

More of the same was pected Tuesday because heavy rains which have left the grass practice fields soggy. Cornhusker a Bob Devaney speculated Monday that Southern California would most likely attack Nebraska much like it did Alabama with a heavy emphaiss on the running game. "We don't have a big 'defensive line this year, -'It's about the smallest line we've ever had here," Devaney noted. v.

The weather also prompted a change in procedures for freshman coach Jim Ross, who greeted 63 candidates in his initia practice session Mon- day. 1 Ross and assistant Bill Thornton met briefly with the squad in the afternoon, then held a 6:30 p.m. indoor practice in the Fieldhouse, which also has an AstroTurf surface. "It worked out pretty good," said Ross. "We'll probably continue in this 'fashion until the practice fields dry out." He noted that about the only limitation, indoors was that there, wasn't quite as much room for passing.

"But we' felt like we 'got a lot accomplished," he said. McKay: Huskers Bigger Los Angeles Southern California football coach John McKay says has bigger runners and a bigger all-around football team than Alabama, which fell, 42-21, to the Trojans last Saturday. USC will open its home season, against the Nebraska Cornhusker Saturday night, 1 A star for the Trojans in the opener was sophomore fullback Sam Cunningham. He was named player of the week by Southern California Football Writers Monday. Cunningham rushed for 135 yards and scored two touchdowns.

1 McKay said he was particularly pleased with the play of Dave Brown, Pete Adams and Al Gallagher, all newcomers to the offensive line. And he said Monday he thought Willie Hall "played an outstanding game" in the defensive secondary "as a first year man." The Trojans went through a workout.

But they hung close behind" the Pirates, who blew a 3-2 verdict to the Cubs when Matty Alou dropped a two-out fly ball in the ninth to trigger a three-run Chicago rally. Monday night, New York fell behind 4-0 as rookie Clyde Mashore ripped a two-run homer off Ray Sadecki in the second inning for his first major league hit and then singled in the fourth to ignite another two-run flurry. Three walks, three singles and an error by third baseman Coco Laboy gave the Mets five runs in the fifth, but the Expos tied it against Frisella in the bottom of the inning on a walk, Jim McFarland Cut by Cardinals McFarland, Nebraska, tight end; Tony Plummer, defensive back; Paul White, cornerback; Greg Lens, defensive tackle.

Long Time in "This is something weve wanted to do for a long time," Dill says. "We had worked on a league similar to this two or three times before, but not with much success. "We're going to give it a go because of combined efforts by the personnel at the bowling center here," he added, "and we've found a great sponsor." The event will be called the Hamm's Singles Classic and will be patterned after similar ventures in Chicago and Detroit, Dill explains.

"It's something. new and different for around here," he adds, "and we hope that people like to watch the top bowlers go against each otherson the highest level of com-! petition." Dill believes higher scores will emerge in' the 28-week span. "I would say, at the least, half of us should be over 200," he offers. "The pace will be much faster than five-man team bowling. A bowler can keep his stroke, and won't have to wait five minutes to bowl each time." The league will use the same basic format as the PBA finals, first seen at Hollywood last November and something which will be seen again this November.

The system calls for match games with 50 bonus pins for each win in addition to the regular scratch score. Roll-off Is Planned A roll-off for the top eight positions at the end of the season will follow with an additional. $400 on the line. The format then calls for successive challenges from positions eight through the pacesetter. Florom and Jensen exceeded the 200 average mark.
