Gamblers pinned with first loss; Gold tip Orlando The Associated Press The Baltimore Stars, who won the United States Football League title last season, may not be ready to give up their championship torch despite a shaky start in 1985. The methodical Stars, 2-3-1, handed the pass-happy Houston Gamblers their first loss of the USFL season Sunday, intercepting three Jim Kelly passes and forcing him to fumble once en route to a 27-14 victory. Kelly, who executes the Gamblers' vaunted "run-and-shoot" offense that piled up 37.8 points per game before Sunday, completed 33 of 51 passes for 393 yards against Baltimore. But he managed only two touchdown passes after throwing for 19 TDs in his first five outings. "We had never played against the Even palm trees causing trouble for Valenzuela The Associated Press Now, even the palm trees are ganging up on Fernando Valenzuela. The Los Angeles left-hander absorbed his fifth loss of the exhibition baseball season Sunday, losing 5-3 to an Atlanta Braves split-squad, and the cozy confines of the Dodgers' park in Vero Beach, Fla., didn't help. In the third inning, with the bases loaded, Ken Oberkfell hit a long drive that got between center fielder Ken Landreaux and right fielder Mike Mar-, shall, and then took a crazy hop off one of the palm trees planted in the outfield. By the time Marshall retrieved the ball. Oberkfell had rounded the bases for an inside-the-park, off-the-tree grand slam. Valenzuela went seven innings, giving up five runs on six hits. He has won one of six spring decisions. run-and-shoot offense and the defensive guys were a little tight at first," Baltimore Coach Jim Mora said. "But we got used to seeing it and played it pretty good." "We were able to move the ball real well," Houston Coach Jack Pardee said. "Kelly had a good game, but the turnovers are what killed us. They were devastating." In other games Sunday, Denver rallied to beat Orlando 21-17 and Oakland bombed Los Angeles 30-6. Saturday night's USFL action saw Birmingham beat Jacksonville 25-18 and Arizona trample New Jersey 31-13. The Stallions' Cliff Stoudt and the Outlaws' Doug Williams each had three touchdown passes. Gold 21, Renegades 17 While the Gamblers suffered their first loss. Orlando came close to posting its first victory before succumbing to Denver. The Gold, trailing 17-0 at halftime, got two second-half touchdown passes from Vince Evans, one a 10-yarder to Vincent White and the other 3 yards to running back Bill Johnson with 2:16 left in the game. Early in the fourth period, Evans sneaked 1 yard for a touchdown that made it 17-14. Pedro Guerrero belted a two-run homer for the Dodgers. The victim of Guerrero's home run was reliever Terry Forster. "I've been working this spring on throwing a changeup," Forster said. "He hit the home run off a changeup. That's the last one I'm going to throw." Overall, the day was doubly successful for the Braves, whose other split-squad beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-2. Glenn Hubbard's three-run double off Mike Boddicker and Bob Horner's first hit of the spring highlighted that Atlanta victory. Valenzuela is not the only big-name pitcher having woes this spring. Mario Soto, who will be the Cincinnati Reds' opening-day hurler, also is continuing to experience problems. Soto was shelled for 11 runs on 14 hits in six innings by the New York Mets in their 15-2 rout of the Reds. Soto has now given up 16 earned runs in 18 innings this spring. Mike Laga and Nelson Simmons both singled home two runs as the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 7-5. In the first half, Evans passed for fewer than 100 yards, but he finished with 335. his first 300-plus game this season for 4-2 Denver. Invaders 30, Express 6 Bobby Hebert threw three touchdown passes, two of them to wide receiver Anthony Carter, to lead Oakland over Los Angeles, which played without quarterback Steve Young, who is out with a knee injury. Hebert. wbo completed 15 of his 26 passes for 221 yards, threw a 48-yard bomb to Carter for the Invaders' first touchdown midway through the first quarter, then connected with the former Michigan star again in the third period. Carter got another touchdown in the second quarter when he recovered a fumble by teammate Brian Williams in the end zone. Frank Seurer. filling In for Young, passed for only 122 yards and was intercepted four NEW YORK (AP) - Professional wrestling hat grabbed the big time by the throat, smashing bad guys, trotting out big names and cashing in on its new chic status at a sold-oul Madison Square Garden show. Muhammad All recalled his glory days at Sunday's extravaganza. Uberace high-kicked with his Rocket-tes and singer Cyndi Lauper regained her honor all before a national closed-circuit television audience of 1 million people. Billed as " Wrest lemania." the event marked wrestling's hammer lock on hype and its arrival, after years out of style, at the peak of chic. "We're giving people what they want in sports entertainment : The chance to cheer for the good guys, boo the bad guys, have a couple of beers and let off a little steam." said Rex Jones, spokesman for the show's promoters. The fans let It off In jets, filling the 21.000-seal Garden with hoots, hollers and screams for vengeance, downing beers and hoisting banner! aa spotlights swept the elevated wrestling platform. Fans also packed the adjoining 5.000-seat Felt Forum for the closed-circuit broadcast, and publicist John Bailey said broadcast aud.ences bought out the Nassau Coliseum, the Boston Garden and the Philadelphia Spectrum. "A lot of people like this," said 12-year-old Bobby Jakubowski of North Plainfield. N.J.. watching as The Executioner kicked Tito Santana repeatedly In the face during an early match. "It goes back to Roman gladiator games." Whatever its roots, wrestling has put a hold on fans across America. Four of the 10 top cable television shows are wrestling programs, and Jones said his World Wrestling Federation is approaching $100 million in annual income. As well as leaping headlong into cable televison, wrestling has embraced rock n roll performers such as Lauper to attract its new, young audience. It also has capitalized on the popularity of patriotism, pitting All-Amerlcan types against heels such as Nikolai Volkoff, who bellows the Soviet anthem before his matches. With the added spice of grudge mat- " LlLv tatfr nr fig lBstaBBSlgt? 101 frfr Mr T. was carrying a load In Rowdy Roddy Piper (AP Laserphoto) ches so intense they make the soap operas look like dishwater, the product is a heady mix of staged brutality, glamour, flying giants, screaming fans and shameless hyperbole. Sunday's show was billed "as the single greatest sports entertainment presentation of all time." noted WWF spokesmant Jones. "And we firmly believe that to be true." The scene was as grandiose as the promotion: large, sweaty performers heaved one another across the ring, staging brutal kicks and stomps as fans pelted them with paper cups and yelled for gore. "It's rough out there," panted television's Mr. T, who joined good-guy champion Hulk Hogan in a tag-team match. "It's not for no wimps, wrasslln'." Hogan and Mr. T bashed Rowdy Roddy Piper and Paul "Mr. Wonderful" Orndorff, extracting punishment for the bad guys' criticism of Lauper, a wrestling aficionado. Pianist Liberace was guest timekeeper; All, as referee, joined briefly in a free-for-all on the mat. "It's good showmanship. They give you the excitement that you want," said spectator Joseph Vafeades of Valley Stream, N.Y., watching the match with his 10-year-old daugther, Dawn Marie. "They get the adrenalin flowing." As for the wide-eyed Dawn Marie? "She goes to school and practices the leg lock on her friends." Briefs Late Saturday TEMPE, Ariz.

McEnroe extends string at Milan MILAN, Italy (AP) John McEnroe, the reigning king of international tennis, won his fourth straight tournament this year and headed for Chicago hoping to extend his winning streak and add to his 1985 earnings, which already amount to $283,000. In Chicago, McEnroe is expected to face a tougher challenge from fellow American Jimmy Connors and South African-born Johan Kriek, who did not play the Flla Indoor Trophy tournament here. Connors lost Sunday to Ivan Lendl of Czechoslovakia in a tournament at Fort Myers, Fla. The 26-year-old McEnroe won the Milan competition for the fourth time since 1979, making short work Sunday of Sweden's Anders Jarryd in the finals. The top-seeded American trounced the 23-year-old, second-seeded Swede 6-4, 6-1 in 66 minutes. McEnroe conceded after the victory that he had expected a tougher challenge from Jarryd, who had not lost a single set in the previous four rounds. Jarryd, a member of the Swedish Davis Cup team which defeated the United States in the 1984 finals, missed several easy points and never was a threat to the favored American, who improved his record to 5-1 against the Swede. McEnroe, who had previously won tournaments in New York, Philadelphia and Houston this year, staged an impressive comeback after a three-week rest caused by an aching wrist. McEnroe said he felt fit again and eager for more victories. Retired Swedish star Bjorn Borg, who handed the Fila Trophy to McEnroe after the finale, agreed that the American would reign unchallenged for some more years as the world's No. 1 tennis player. Borg, who had not seen McEnroe in action since Wimbledon two years ago, said "he has greatly improved his playing from the baseline, is more self-confident and almost unbeatable." Jarryd, who won the tournament in Brussels two weeks ago, upsetting fellow-Swede Mats Wilander, blamed himself for the d .feat, saying he made too many unforced errors. Ivan Lendl has beaten Jimmy Connors three straight times, but he still hasn't impressed the irascible Connors. "Lendl didn't do anything exceptionally, except that he served well and was able to keep the ball in play," Connors said after losing to the Czechoslovak 6-3, 6-2 in the finals of the Paine Webber Tennis Classic. Lendl served eight aces and kept Connors on the run with his powerful ground-strokes. I.
