Boa-birds on hand A's topple Twins 4-2 OAK.iAND (AP) - Manager Alvin Dark of the Oakland A's is starting to make the right moves. "Al least they're right if they work," he said after the A's defeated the Minnesota Twins 4-2 Friday night. Dark was booed for removing Jim "Catfish" Hunter in the eighth inning. Hunter won his sixth game of the season with relief help from Darold Knowles and Rollie Fingers. * ** MINNESOTA OAKLAND ab r h bi ab i h bi Hn'tH 3000 Morincf 301!

A-4.JSS 17,000 Flyer fans expected for game three PHILADELPHIA (AP) "We'll bring the booze and you bring the Cup," reads a sign hanging over the balcony at the Spectrum, home of the Philadelphia Flyers. The underdog Flyers came home Friday tied 1-1 with Vhe mighty Boston Bruins, and convinced they'll deliver the Stanley Cup in the best-of-seven National Hockey league final series. "We work and we work and never give up," said defense- man Andre Dupont. "We're gonna' beat this team." Flyers' Coach Fred Shero said his team convinced him in the two Boston games that it would become the first expansion team to win the Cup. "I must admit I had my doubts that we could beat Boston," Shero said before a workout. "I wasn't sure we could win. But those first two games gave my kids a big lift, and I think it took something out of Boston. They're not that cocky." No one argues that Boston has more talent than Philadelphia. So do the New York Rangers and the Chicago Black Hawks. But the Flyers beat the Black Hawks for the West Divi. sion title, and eliminated the Rangers in the playoff semifinals. How did they do it? "This team has so much courage it's unbelievable," says Shero. "They help each other out all the time—on the ice and off. That's how we've won. There is no way that we're better than Chicago or New York... I've played with and coached teams where the players didn't even talk to each other." Now the Flyers are home for Game 3 Sunday and Game 4 on Tuesday. They'll have the advantage of that raving sellout crowd of 17,000. The Flyers haven't lost a playoff game at home this vear. "1 wasn't mad about coming out of the game," Hunter said. "We had fresh pitchers and might as well use them." Hunter had a two-hit shutout until the seventh inning when Eric Soderlwlm homered over Twins sign number one draft choice BI.OOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Twins Friday signed pitcher Mark l,ockwood, their No. 1 draft choice in the January draft by major league baseball teams. I-ockwood, a 6-2, 190-pound lefthander from Anaheim, Calif., pitched at Fullerton Junior College. He was assigned to the Twins' Elizabethton farm team in the Appalachian Rookie l/eague after being signed by Twins' scout Jess Flores. the left-field fence. That cut Oakland's lead to 3-1. An error by shortstop Berl Campaneris, and a single by pinch hitter Bobby Darwin put lwo runners on base with none out in the eighth inning. Dark called in Knowles who got the side out but not before giving up a run on a sacrifice fly by Hod Carew. Fingers pitched the ninth inning because Minnesota had right-handed butters coming up. I lc gave up a single but then ended the game by striking out Sieve Brye. Deron Johnson, who snapped out of a long slump, was the hitting star for the A's. He singled to drive in a run in the second inning and hit his second homer of the season in the sixth. "The manager had confidence in me and lhat kept me going," Johnson said. He was in a slump until Tuesday night when he had a homer and single against Baltimore. He now has five hits and four runs batted in his last three games. The A's got an extra run in the seventh inning on a single by Hay Fosse, a stolen base and n double-by Bill North. The losing pitcher wus Bert Blyleven, 3-4. Blyleven had only one bad inning, the second. Reggie Jackson doubled and scored on Johnson's single. Johnson was thrown out trying for second base and Gene Tenace struck out for the second out. But two errors gave the A's life and Blyleven then walked l);il Maxvill to load the liases and also walked North to force in a run.

By HOWARD SMITH AP Sports Writer Baltimore left-hander Dave McNally loves to win close ballgames but he loves to win lop-sided ones even more. "It's fun winning these kinds of close games but only when they're over," said McNally after beating the Cleveland Indians 3-1 in 10 innings Friday night. "I'd much rather win 10-1." McNally allowed only six hits over nine innings and watched from the bench as reliever Bob Reynolds retired the Indians in the 10th. lx>sing pitcher Steve Kline gave up just four hits through nine innings but was chased in the 10th when Boog Powell singled, pinch-runner Enos Cabell was sacrificed to second and Earl Williams delivered a tie-breaking single.

',\P> - B:lly BuforU can eel married today with his best m;m. l,arry Kenon. on hand after all. The New York Nets saw to lhat when they belted Utah 111100 Friday night to clinch the American Basketball Association championship. While his teammates celebrated with a wild champagne and shower party, Kenon hurried to catch a plane to Chicago. His old teammate at Memphis State. Buford. was the reason. It the Nets hadn't finished the Stars off Friday night, the two teams would have been back in Utah for a sixth game in their series lonigln. • I know that." said Kenon. "I kept telling the guys we i oukir.'t !aso this one. I've gotta I* 1 in Chicago." Kenon obliswd his pal with so:r.e i lutch baskets down the stretch, holpiris; the Nets pull away and clinch New York's first ABA title. The result left the capacity Nassau Coliseum croud in a frenzy and the players had to fight their way into the dressing room. Kenon and guard John Williamson, two rookie starters, had 23 points and 15 points respectively. Second year man Brian Taylor had 19 and the old men of Ihe starting lineup. 24• ear-old Julius Krving had 20, and 215-year-old Billy Paultz, 21. "'llicv said we'd fold under the. pressure of the playoffs." said Kenon. "But inexperience doesn't mean you can't play. What is experience now? We won it." The Nets started slowly and led by only two points at half- lime. 50-48. "We felt fortunate to be up by two at the half," said playoff Most Valuable Player Erving. who had only seven points in the first half. "We felt our defense in the last two minutes of the first half had given us the lead and we decided we had to keep it up in the second half." New York came out hot and opened a 10-point lead at 70-60. But the Stars bounced right back on the hot hand of Willie Wise, who led all scorers with 34 points. Utah caught New York and then went ahead of the Nets 95-94 with 4:46 to play. But Kenon hit three baskets and Williamson had two. I'aultz. Erving and Taylor had one each as the Nets outscored the Stars 17-5 down the stretch. The team defense that Erving talked about finally turned the tide. "We can't play better than we did," said losing Coach Joe Mullaney.
