BOSTON (UP!) - Rico Petrocelll belted a grand slam homer high off the left field wall Monday night to pace the American League East Division leading Boston Red Sox to a 9-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers and give Luis Tlant his 10th win of the year. Petrocelll lined his 10th homer of the year into the left field screen in the fifth inning to give Boston a 6-0 lead and chase loser Jim Colborn. Petrocelll slammed the ninth grand slam of his career, placing him second among active players in that category, preceded by Dick McAullffe's third hit of the night, a single, a double by Carl Yastrzemski and an intentional walk to Carlton Fisk. Tlant scattered eight hits and struck out 10 in running his record to 10-6 and pitching his 12th complete game of the season. Boston got two runs in the first when Tommy Harper walked, stole second and scored on McAullffe's triple off the leftfield wall.

Grich Sparks Birds BALTIMORE (UPI) - Bobby Grlch slammed a two-run homer in the second inning which helped Doyle Alexander win his third game of the season with a five-hitter Monday night when the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Detroit Tigers 3-1. After Boog Powell doubled to left field leading off the second inning against loser Lerrin LaGrow, Grich pulled his 12th homer of the season into the left field seats for his 42nd and 43rd Orta Wins Honor . NEW YORK (UPI) - Chicago White Sox second baseman Jorge Orta, who belted out 16 hits and a .903 slugging average last week, earned a tie with Kansas City Royals' no-hlt pitcher Steve Busby as the American League player of the week. Orta, benched earlier this season, bounced back last week with his first four home runs of the season bunched into the 16 hits. One of the homers beat Minnesota in the 10th inning on Saturday—the third such time, this season Orta has won an extra inning game for the Chisox. Busby, of course, made history on Wednesday at Milwaukee when he no-hitted the Brewers to become the first man ever to twirl no-hitters in his first two seasons in the majors. In the game, Busby retired the last 24 batters in succession after walking Milwaukee's George Scott on a 3-2 pitch in the second.

Church Tourney This Weekend Panama City's Southeastern Invitational church slow pitch softball tournament is scheduled for this weekend at Oakland Terrace Park. Teams from Florida, Alabama and Georgia will begin play Friday night on Oakland Terrace's four fields and continue all day Saturday. This will be the third big tournament in as many weeks here. Two weeks ago it was the men's open and last week it was the women. And the annual fast pitch invitational is coming up the second weekend in July. Favorites Advance WIMBLEDON, England (UPI) - The first "real Wimbledon" in three years got off to a quiet start Monday with the favorites, led by top-seeded John_Newcombe of Australia and America's Stan Smith, making untroubled progress despite a lack of grass courts practice. International tennis politics kept the male stars at home the previous two years but they are here in force this time for a run at the $234,480 prize money, a figure which makes Wimbledon, traditionally the unofficial world championship, the richest tournament of the year. Newcombe, champion here in 1971 for the third time and the bookies choice at 7-4, blasted Frenchman Georges Goven, 6-3, 6-2, 8-6, despite many shots "off the wood," while Smith, co- ranked No, 1 in the U.S. with Jimmy Connors, showed something of his real form in defeating Grover Reed of Greenville, S.C., 6-3,6-3,6-2. Newcombe, winner at Forest Hills last year and victor in the WCT finals last month, had difficulty adjusting to the grass and a wooden racket, something he has not handled in nine months. "I have a contract which stipulates I play with a wooden racket in Britain,". Newcombe said. "But I've hit so much wood the strings at the top of the racket are more frayed than in the middle." The Australian, however, is satisfied with his form and the time he's had on grass, despite the hectic few weeks in which he has travelled the length of the United States in the cause of the Houston E-Z Riders of the World Team Tennis league. "Mentally, I'm ready. I've had the same amount of grass court practice as I had in '71 when I last came here," Newcombe said. One break in service in each set was all Newcombe needed against Goven,' although it was the 13th game in the third set before he finally made it. Smith, who won the rich John Player classic at Nottingham last week to end a drought which has gone on all year —he won only one WCT event —had too much power and savvy for Reed, ranked 27th in the U.S., and Stan smiled a lot, something he did here in 1972 when he emerged as champion on his second attempt. Defending champion Jan Kodes of Czechoslovakia, who had brooded for the last 12 months because tennis buffs have not acknowledged his 1973 victory, kept his temper under control while beating Sherwood Stewart of Houston, Tex., 6-3,64,9-7. Kodes, who ran foul of officialdom in the Italian championships and with his fellow pros during the French open, has also failed to find a sym- patheric ear here when complaining of his sixth seeding. Kodes looked anything but a champion against Stewart, ranked'no higher than 28th at home, especially in the third set when he was taken to 15 games before he got the vital break. Bjorh Borg, the teenage sensation who chose to play Davis Cup after Swedish authorities matched the offer of Cleveland of WTT, had a few anxious moments on the low volley before turning aside Britain's Graham Stllwell 6-1,46,6-4, 6-1. The 18-year-old Swede, winner of the Italian and French opens and the answer to a promoter's prayer, was shadowed by extra stewards to keep at bay the hordes of teen-age admirers who sought his autograph, or, better still, a lock of his blond Viking hair. Americans to- score first round victories on a day which drew 25,000 fans to the ground included Roscoe Tanner, of Lookout Mountain Tenn., Eddie Dibbs of Miami, Fla., Jeff Borowiak of Berkeley, Calif., and Charlie Pasarell, of Santurce, P.R. Of the 27 American men singles players, eight scored first round victories while 10 failed to complete their matches, or even get on court, because of darkness. Jimmy Connors, the third seed from Belleville, 111., ranked joint number one with Smith in the United States, led Sweden's Ove Bengston two sets to one while eighth seeded Arthur Ashe from Gum Springs, Va., failed to get on court. Late in the evening as dusk descended upon the All England Club, second seeded Hie Nastase of Romania, won a two hour 25 minute battle over Czechoslovakia.s Jiri Hrebec 89,6-3,6-4,6-2. Tom Gorman, the 11th seed from Seattle, Wash., was taken to five sets before he defeated India's Anand Amritraj 6-4,7-5, 3-6,4-6,8-6. KANSAS CITY (UPI) - Ron Santo blasted a two-run homer, starting a three-run seventh inning Monday night and propelling the Chicago White Sox to a 3-1 victory over Steve (No Hit) Busby and the Kansas City Royals behind the combined four-hit pitching of Wilbur Wood and Terry Forster. Wood, 12-8, bested Busby, 9-7, whose bid for a second straight no-hitter was not ended until Pat Kelly stroked a one-out single in the sixth. Johnny Vander Meer, who did it in 1938, is the only man in the history of baseball to pitch two consecutive no-hitters. Wood allowed only three hits into the ninth inning but was replaced by Forster after giving up a one-out single to Hal McRae. The Royals filled the bases but Al Cowens hit into a game-ending double play. Carlos May started the Chicago seventh with a single, only the second hit of the game off Busby. After Ken Henderson popped out, Santo crashed his fifth homer of the season over the 385-foot sign in left center, scoring May ahead of him. Bill Sharp followed with a double and rode home on Bucky Dent's two-out single. The three-run inning ended a string of 221-3 scoreless innings by Busby.

LOUIS (UPI)-Ted Simmons smashed a three-run homer and Jim Dwyer hit his first major league home run Monday night to give Bob Gibson a 4-0 victory and the St. Louis Cardinals a doubleheader sweep over the Pittsburgh Pirates, following a 3-1 first game victory. Gibson, who had not won a game since May 19 and is now 4-8 on the year, notched his 241st career victory and became the winning'est active pitcher in baseball, breaking a deadlock he had held with Boston's Juan Marichal. Dwyer's first major league homer came with one out in the second, a drive into the right field seats off Pittsburgh starter atid loser Larry Demery, now 0-3. In the third Lou Brock singled with one out, Tim McCarver walked and Simmons hit his eighth homer of the year on a 3-2 delivery from Demery to make the score 4-0. Gibson allowed the Pirates only four hits in his first shutout and third complete game of the year. He struck out 11, raising his career strike out total 2,988 as he tries to become the only pitcher in history beside Walter Johnson to strike out 3,000 batters. In the opener, the Cards scored all of their runs on four straight singles bunched around a throwing error by Richie Zisk in the second inning. The key single was by Ken Reitz, driving,in Luis Melendez and allowing Bake McBride to score as the wild throw went into the Pittsburgh dugout. Mike Tyson singled in Reitz for the final run. Alan Foster earned the win, raising his record to 3-5. A leadof f homer by Richie Hebner in the sixth was the only run scored for. Pirates' starter Jerry Reuss, whose record dropped to 6-5. The sweep gave the Cards a 7-1 record oyer the Pirates this season and allowed them to move to within one game of the division-leading Philadelphia Phillies in the National League East.

Lee May opened the inning with a double and Clint Johnson drew a walk off starter and loser Don Gullett, now 7-5. Tommy Helms followed Rader's seventh homer of the year with a single, was sacrificed to second by Griffin and scored on Roger Metzger's broken bat bloop just over the glove of first baseman Tony Perez.

LOB-Cincln- Mets Use Errors CHICAGO (UPI) - Successive errors by Dave Rosello and Jose Cardenal gave the New York Mets the tying and winning runs with one out in the ninth inning Monday for a 4-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Rosello first let Ed Kranepool's potential game-ending double play grounder go through his legs permitting Jerry Grote and Cleon Jones to advance and then Cardenal threw wild attempting to catch Jones at third as two Met runners scored. Grote had opened the inning with a walk and Oscar Zamora, suffering his first major league defeat, relieved Cubs starter Jim Todd, who allowed only one run and seven hits in eight innings. Jones' single moved Grote to second and Rusty Staub flied out before the Cub miscues. Kranepool, reaching third on the two errors, scored New York's third run of the inning on Don Hahn's double. Bill Madlock's infield for- ceout that scored Rick Monday and Cardenal in the fourth inning had given the Cubs a 2-1 lead going into the ninth.

A disappointed St.Jean Baptiste holiday crowd of 15,083 saw Lonborg wrap up his sixth straight win as the Phillies erupted for six runs in the third inning. Del Unser and Mike Schmidt singled off Montreal loser Mike Torrez, now 7-5. Tom Hutton then hit into a fielder's choice and the runners advanced to second and third when Torrez balked. Willie Montanez singled to drive in two runs to give the Phillies a 4-0 lead. Mike Anderson doubled and Bob Boone walked to load the bases and Lonborg, who has lost five games this season, greeted reliever Chuck Taylor with only his third major league home run and first grand slam home run into the left field stands.

Randy Holt Bowls 299 Almost perfect. That's what Randy Holt bowled Monday night. He scored a 299 in a sanctioned league at the Bowlarama. Brown Named Colonel Coach LOUISVILLE, KEN. (UPI) — Milwaukee Bucks' assistant Hubie Brown, 40, who has never held a head coaching job on the college or the professional level, Monday night was named to succeed Babe McCarthy as head coach of the ABA Kentucky Colonels. The announcement was made at a party before nearly 2,000 season ticket-holders. Also at the party, the club announced the acquisition of forward Wilbur Jones from the Memphis Tarns and guard William Averitt from the San Antonio Spurs in the ABA. In another announcement, Colonels' board chairman Mrs. Ellie Brown said the Colonels completed negotiations releasing them from playing any home games in Cincinnati next season. She said plans call for 34 home games in Louisville, six in Lexington, Ky„ the remaining two at other sites to be announced later. Brown, a graduate of Niagara University where he and Milwaukee coach Larry Costello were basketball teammates, was hired to replace McCarthy, who was fired last month after the Colonels, who were eliminated in four straight games by the New York Nets in the second round of the ABA playoffs. Mrs. Brown said the Colonels interviewed seven candidates from a host of applicants for the coaching position. "We conducted an exhaustive examination of everyone, and I was convinced more than a week ago that Hubie was our man," she said." His signing may prompt the Cqlonels to change their names to the Browns since the club is owned primarily by Mrs. Brown and her millionaire husband, John Y. Brown Jr. who had had a major voice in the management. Although Hubie Brown has always been.an assistant coach in college and pro ball, he comes highly recommended by Costello, who says he has been more of an associate than an assistant at Milwaukee. Costello credits Brown with being the chief architect of the Bucks' defense and having excellent rapport with the players.
