Joe Decker, beaten 9-0 by Milwaukee at Bloomington April 27, scattered eight hits this time as the Twins recorded their third successive victory and handed the Brewers their fourth consecutive defeat. The Twins scored the only run they needed in the third inning after Larry Hisle led off with a single.

White Sox nip Tigers 1-0 in 11 er Clyde Wright, but rookie shortstop Robin Yount dropped the throw to second base and both runners were safe. Oliva's line drive to second baseman Pedro Garcia doubled Carew off first, but Killebrew followed with an RBI double. Singles by Carew, Oliva and Killebrew inade it 2-C in the fifth and Oliva provided insurance with his homer in the seventh. Killebrew will be 38 June 29 and Oliva, 33, has been limited to designated hitter the last two years because of knee trouble, but Twins' Manager Frank Quilici is far from ready to write off their careers. "That's a good thing to see," Quilici said of the pair's hitting. "Harmon's been feeling well. He's gone through a lot of mental torture." "There was a lot of talk. He was hitting about .200 early in the season, but he was hitting well, and people wondered if he could come back. But he's a pro," Quilici said. Manager Del Crandall said his Brewers "seem to be flat," but refused to blame the 38-degree '.feather. "If our players are worried about the weather, they're worried about the wrong things," he said. He said he may juggle his lineup tonight when the clubs conclude their two-game series. Jim Colborn (1-2) is to pitch against Minnesota's Bert Blyleven (3-3). * ** "We're sort of playing without inspiration," Colborn said. "Maybe it's bad luck. The next thing you know you're pressing a little." "I still have a lot of faith and confidence in our team, but you can't wait around," he said. "You've got to make things happen. You can't let the opposition take that aggressiveness away from you," he said. Bruins nip Flyers 3-2 in final seconds Journal SPORTS Fergus Falls (Mr.) Wed. May 8, 1974 Journal BOSTON (AP) - The Philadelphia Flyers figure they won everything except the game against the Boston Bruins in the opener of their showdown for Ihe National Hockey league's coveted Stanley Cup. Now'all the Flyers have to do is figure out a way to change their luck on Boston Garden ice, preferably by Thursday night's second game of the best- of-seven championship series. Philadelphia spotted the Bruins a 2-0 first-period lead, came back to tie and appeared to be stronger in the third period of Tuesday night's opener.

It won't challenge many programs from top ratings on the ' Nielsen charts, but Wood : doesn't seem to mind.

Ashby whips Wheaton 4-1 ASHBY — The pitching of Scot Anderson and team defense told the story in Ashby's 4-1 victory over Wheaton Tuesday at Ashby. Anderson, pitching his fourth win of the season, fanned seven Warriors and aided his own cause with five assists and two put-outs. "It was just great team defense all around,'' said Ashby coach Chuck Anderson. Ashby's Steve Benson was 2 for 3 including three RBI's to lead in hitting.

(Journal photo by Bruce Bakke) Boston takes 3-2 NBA playoff lead Celtics' execution triggers 96-87 win Then, just after the public address announcer sounded, "One minute to play in the period, one minute," the Flyers missed a golden opportunity to score. The puck slid across an open Boston goal and defenseman Bobby Orr sat on it. The whistle blew with 55 seconds left. The mighty Bruins then sped up ice and pulled out a 3-2 victory on Bobby Orr's slap shot of a rolling puck from about 35 feet out. "I'd like to say I aimed it, but I just turned around and shot," Orr said after just his second goal in 11 playoff games this spring. It wasn't one of Orr's patented goals. After Wayne Cashman dug the puck out of the corner, he sent a pass to Ken Hodge, who spotted Orr. The Boston superstar merely took a swipe and the puck bounced through a maze of players past Philadelphia goalie Bernie Parent. The goal spoiled a tremendous performance by the Flyers, who hadn't won in Boston since their first appearance here as an NHL expansion team Nov. 12, 1967. The Flyers argued vainly that Cashman had held defenseman Andre Dupont in the corner. That cost Dupont a 10-minute misconduct. Cash- Otter tennis team fourth in meet 51.

John Havlicek,;symbol of the matchless Ceuic tradition, poured in 28 points and teamed with Paul Silas to smother Milwaukee's forwards Tuesday- night as Boston wore down the Bucks 96-87 for a 3-2 lead in the National Basketball Association championship playoffs. Dave Cowens also hit 28 points, 17 in the second half, while Jo-Jo White sank 18 for the Celtics, who can clinch the best-of-seven series by winning in Boston Friday. A seventh game, if needed, will be here Sunday. "We dug back deep for this one," said the 34-year-old Havlicek, veteran of six NBA championship teams and 135 playoff games in 11 magnificent seasons with Boston. "We are a team with a great deal of pride, but not many of the players on this team were on any of those championship teams," Havlicek said. "They always hear about them, though, and now they want to win one for themselves." The Celtics took permanent command in a third period surge, unleashing their fast break to out score the Bucks 22-5 and transform their lead from one to 18 points. The Bucks' defeat destroyed the home court advantage they had earned by winning in Bos- A GOLFING FAMILY AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo.

Moreover, it shattered the widely held opinion that the Bucks, by starting 6- foot-7 reserve forward Mickey Davis at guard, finally had found the matchup combination to neutralize the Celtics', tireless pressure defense.

"1 guess they (Fergus) can't stand prosperity after winning at Valley City," said Otter coach Nick Noack after yesterday's meet. "Bemidji looks like the team to beat in the state this year," added Noack assessing the Northwest Athletic Conference Lumberjacks. Gust had 77, Tim Iversen had 79, Kip Borowski had 80, Doug Bentley fired an 83, Matt Gervais slipped to an 84 and Bill Riviere had 87 for Fergus.

He played 29 minutes and scored seven points. His replacement, Jon McGlocklin, played 25 minutes with a painfully torn calf muscle and scored just two points. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar fired in 37 points and Oscar Robertson 23 for the Bucks, but their teammates managed only 27 more combined. Bob Dandridge sank just four of 17 shots under pressure by Havlicek and scored only 10 points. Cornell Warner, Milwaukee's other forward, scored two. "We didn't do a single thing differently," Celtics' Coach Tom Heinsohn said. "All the adjustments by both teams were made by game three. It's now a matter of execution. There's not much a coach can do." EAST GRAND FORKS Jim Domholt placed second in the number one singles to lead the Fergus Falls Otters to their fourth place finish in the North- West Athletic Conference tennis meet Tuesday held at East Grand Forks. Bemidji won the tourney with 22 points, Crookston was second at 17, Thief River Falls followed at 13, Fergus Falls had 12, Breckenridge finished with 6 and East Grand Forks had five points. Domholt finished with a 4-1 dual match record. His only loss was to Brent Reichert of Crookston. Paul Sanderson finished at 32, Paul Fleming was 1-4 in the other single events for Fergus., Fergus' doubles team of Dean Johnson and Tim Kapphahn were 2-3 and the team of Greg Randall and Dan Sperling also finished at 2-3 Tuesday.

"I just saw the rubber as I was coming in," Hodge said. "It was just laying loose and I picked it up. I turned to look for (Phil) Esposito and saw Bobby breaking into the slot area and got it to him." "We'll still bring that Stanley Cup to Philadelphia," Parent said. "I didn't have a clear view on their first two goals and Orr's was no different." Cashman also played a key role in another manner. He engaged Philadelphia defen- seman Ed Van Impe in a high- sticking and punching duel in the second period. Flyers defenseman Jim Watson jumped in to help, and drew an automatic game misconduct penalty for being the third man in a fight.

I/mis CnnlinHls 1, C'incin- By BOB GREEN AP Golf Writer HOUSTON (API -A couple of hometown boys—Homero Blancas and John Mahaffey— rank high among the list of favorites in the $150,000 Houston Open Golf Tournament. The 72-hole event gets underway Thursday on the beautifully conditioned, 6,905-yard, par 72 Quail Valley Golf Club course with a slim field of the famous going after a trimmed- down purse. This tournament offered $205,000 in total prizes last year, one of the richest on the tour. But it failed to attract the (•lamour names and—very unusually m this area of skyrocketing purses—the sponsors cut back on Ihe money this season. Most of the great names still are missing from the 144-man field that includes 51 qualifiers. The Houston event immediately precedes next week's Colonial National—the first of the newly designated tournaments in which leading players must compete. Many of the game's top attractions are taking off this week lo rest and attend to business commitments. Johnny Miller is in Japan on business. Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf are fishing in Mexico. Gary Player is at home in South Africa. Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper, I*e Trevino and Buddy Allin, winner nf last week's Byron Nelson Classic, are taking time off. Even with those absentees, the Texas-dominated field—one quarter of the entries live in this state—includes five men who have won tour titles this year, along with defending champion Bruce Crampton, a strong contender for the $30,000 first prize. The sturdy Australian, a Dallas resident and one of the game's six SI million winners, scored his third victory on the season in this tournament a year ago but hasn't played up to that standard in 1974. But he has shown marked improvement in his last few starts and at one time challenged for the litle in the Bvron Nelson. Hubert Green, a two-time winner this year, is on hand. So are Allen Miller, New Zealand's Bob Charles, I^onard Thompson and Dave Stockton, all of whom have won this year. Blancas and Mahaffey, both Houston residents, are the favorites, however. The veteran Blancas has played well in his last few starts and led for two rounds last week. Mahaffey hasn't won this year but ranks among the game's most outstanding young stars. He's been second three times and third once. Other standouts include Ben Crenshaw, Lanny Wadkins, Dave Hill and veteran Jack Burke, captain of the 1973 American Ryder Cup team.
