(AP) - All of a sudden, the light blue baseball togs of the Kansas City Royals seem to have taken on the lustre formerly reserved for the more gaudy green and yellow of the Oakland A's in the American l/eague West. The streaking Royals pounded out 14 hits Friday night and whipped the Minnesota Twins 51 behind the four-hit pitching of right hander Dennis Leonard.

"Wail a minute," cautioned K.C. Manager Whitey Herzog. "We've still got 131 games to go. If we win 100 of them, we'll be all right." Herzog, however, wasn't entirely pleased with the Royals latest winning performance.

Tom Poquette was picked off first by Minnesota left hander Mike Pazik and on the very next play Amos Otis was cut down after running haphazardly to second base in an apparent steal attempt "You saw the game," Herzog added. "I'm not going to elaborate. I just wasn't pleased with everything." John Maybeny, Freddie Patek and Leonard, however, certainly did their assigned tasks in the right way. Mayberry ei- tended a personal hitting string tO'll games with a long homer, double and two singles while the redact Patek went Wor-4 to hike his average to. .354. Leonard had little trouble with the Twins while winning his third straight to improve his record to 3-1. "It usually takes me awhile to get going, but I'm swinging pretty good now," said the hulking Mayberry, who boosted his average to .271 "Playing every day makes it easier too." The massive first baseman lined a 400-foot home run in the fourth inning to begin the scoring. He doubled to lead off the sixth and came around to score on Patek's double to begin a three-run Royal inning that finished Twins starter Jim Hughes, who suffered his fourth straight loss. "He (Hughes) has been better in his last three starts," said Twins Coach Jerry Zimmerman, who subbed for Gene Mauch after the Minnesota Manager was stricken with an intestinal infection earlier in the day. "I don't think ay body's going to walk away with the division," said Zimmerman. "Kansas City has a pretty solid nucleus though." The Royals took a 2-0 lead hi the fifth inning when Poquette lined a single to left field to score Patek and Frank White's two-run single climaxed the *** KANSAS CITY .

CB IS 22 .iCl In NBA title series Celtics, Suns enter game one ByBERTROSENTHAL AP Sports Writer BOSTON <AP) - When the surprising Phoenbt Suns and the poised Boston Celtics meet Sunday in Game One of their National Basketball Association best-of-seven championship series, it will mark the first anniversary of a significant trade between the teams. It was last May 23 that the Celtics sent All-Star guard Charlie Scott to the Suns for dependable but unspectacular backcourtman Paul Westphal. It was one of those rare transactions that has worked out well for both dubs. And it will be the performances of both the flashy Scott and the consistent Westphal— who will be playing against each other—that could go a long way toward determining the new NBA champion. Scott and Westphal also opposed each other during the regular season, and the Celtics' guard and his teammates were the winners. While Boston was Bosox fall into fourth place, A's slip to fifth By HEKSCHEL NISSFJiSON AP Sports Writer The Boston Red Sox and Oakland A's may be the defending champions in the American League but right now they're only second-division teams. The Red SOT dropped a W, IJ-inning decision to the New York Yankees Friday night and fell into fourth pi ace in the East Division, six games from the top. The A's, fifth in the Al, West, lost their fifth in a row and are eight games off the pace. Neither manager is particularly worried, though. "I don't consider this a crucial series," Boston's Darrell Johnson said of the Red Sox' current four-game set with first-place New York, "but I don't want to gel loo far back." "I'm not discouraged because of our losing streak," insisted Oakland's Chuck Tanner. Kerry Dmeen, who didn't arrive at Yankee Stadium until the middle innings after his recall from the minors, singled home an unearned run with two out in the I2Ui inning to boost ilw Ysnkces over the Red Sox. Carlos May reached when second baseman Denny Doyle booted his two-out grounder and went to third on a single by Graig Nettles before Dineen came through. Meanwhile, Bucky Dent rapped out four hits and ex-Yankee Ken Brett made his Chicago pitching debut a success as the White Sox downed the skidding A's. Vida Blue, who had beaten the While Sox seven straight times, was the victim while. Brett allowed one hit in five innings before giving way to Clay Carroll. Brewers 4, Indians 3 Bill Travers fired a four-hitter, Sixto Lezcano hit a two^un homer and Milwaukee beat Cleveland with the help of two unearned runs in the seventh inning. The Brewers broke a 2-2 tie when shortstop Frank Duffy bobbled Bobby Darwin's grounder. Bill Sharp hit a pinch single and Tim Johnson and Robin Younl followed with run- scoring singles off Pat Dobson. Raagers i, Aageb 2 Nelson Bales held California ta one Ml afler the third inning and Mike Hargrove brought the Rangers from behind with a beating Phoenix in each of their four meetings, Scott outscored Westphal, averaging 24.0 points to 22.5 a game. However, Westphal, who played brilliantly over the second half of the season, was a better scorer over-all than Scott, averaging 20.5 points- tops on Phoenix—to Scott's 17.G. Both players have expressed their gratitude over the trade— and both teams have been extremely pleased with it. "I can honestly say I'm much better off where I am," said the soft-spoken Westphal, who spent three seasons with the Celtics, including their 1974 championship year. "At least in Phoenix I'm appreciated." In Boston, Westphal never- felt he had the confidence of Coach Tom Heinsohn. "I always had the confidence of the two-run homer in the third be- Pjayers, and I had my own con- fore a record Texas crowd of L" 5 *"™' bul: never nad *"*•" «,8H on Bat Night. . he explained. "It's a much bet- - - - — ter situation for a player when he thinks his coach thinks he's good. There will always be a part of me that will feel he held me back. "I don't feel I'm playing any differently now than I did when 1 was with Boston," added time, and I'm playing the kind of basketball 1 could have played for Boston." Scott, perhaps, had to make a more difficult transformation than Westphal, because of a bad reputation he had carried with him at Phoenix. He was criticized as being an individualist, a wild, unharnessed shooter, a poor defensive player and a malcontent. But with the Celtics, he has become a team player in the true tradition of the dub, capping his season so far with a critical steal and basket in Boston's clinching victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the playoff semifinals.
