Journal Sat., August 10,1974 g By BRENTKALLESTAD AP Sports Writer BLOOM1NGTON, Minn. (API — Friday night was one of those nights for Baltimore Manager Earl Weaver and Oriole pitcher Dave McNally. Weaver lasted one inning and McNally less than two in Minnesota's 6 2 victory in the opener of a three-game series. "H was just one of those nights," said Weaver after he was ejected. "I didn't even say anything to him (umpire Jim Odom). Some of the players were yelling and he wanted me to get them to stop." McNally, 10-9, trooped to the Oriole clubhouse moments behind his skipper with no one out in the second inning. Minnesota had shelled the veteran hurler for four runs and six hits. "It was a bad night," said McNally, "They happen...I didn't have good stuff at all. I've my good and bad days against Minnesota. I've had more bad lately." To accent Weaver's Friday night blues, he suffered a pre- game loss to Minnesota Manager Frank Quilici in a promotional bowling contest at the stadium. "My thumbs were not big enough for the ball they gave me," he added, "Everything AMERICAN AT MINNESOTA BALTIMORE MINNESOTA ao f h b; ab r h bi TARKENTON PRACTICES — Vikings' quarterback Fran Tarkenton threw passe 8 before one young fan this week while the 37 striking Viking veterans got together at a high school football field for a practice without coaches.

( AP Wirephoto) 8-time chomp loses at Duluth in golf match DULUTH, Minn. (AP) Eight time champion Leo Spooner of Duluth was defeated, but six former champions survived matches Friday in the Northland Invitational Golf tournament. Lloyd Freden of Edina edged Spooner 1-up after 19 holes at Northland Country Club. A double round of matches is scheduled today to reduce the 16 players remaining to four. Semifinals and finals are scheduled Sunday. Among the winners of Friday matches was Dick Johnson of St. Cloud, who won the Resor- ters' tournament at Alexandria last week. The former champions who won included defending Northland champion Dr. Bob Harris, Roseau, 1972 winner Bruce Odlaug, St. Paul, Harry Newby Jr., Cloquet, John Slaver, Virginia, John Douglas, Duluth, and Bob McGee III, Duluth. s j sters tOt GXClted By JOHN SHURR Associated Press Writer INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Young Chris Evert, as cool a tennis player as ever crossed the Atlantic to nab a Wirnble- don title for the United States, says she likes to see fans get excited — even if it's for her opponents. Chris and her younger sister, Jeanne, seeded No. 2 in women's doubles at the $130,000 U.S. Clay Court Tennis Championships, all but lost their third- round match Friday night and the fans were really getting with it in behalf of their opponents. "I think it's great," Chris said about the rooting after the Fort [.auderdale, Fla., combo overcame a 5-2 third-set deficit and defeated Jenny Walker of England and Christine O'Neil of Australia 6-J, 4-6, 7-5. Chris, who says she prefers grass and hard courts to clay, has been beseiged by autograph p | ay r w Northrup touches off rally for 4-3 Expo win By HAL BOCK AP SporU Writer It didn't take Jim Northrup long to get himself acclimated to his new surroundings in the National League. Purchased by Montreal from Detroit earlier this week, Northrup at first balked at reporting, then showed up in time for Friday night's game at Houston. The Astros wish he had wailed a little longer. All the veteran outfielder did was stroke a game-tying home run in the seventh inning, and a single touching off the winning rally in the ninth as the Expos nipped Houston 4-3, Elsewhere in the National League, St. Louis opened its East Division lead to IVj games by defeating Los Angeles 5-3 while second-place Philadelphia was losing 3-2 in 11 innings to Atlanta. The Dodgers maintained their 5'i game lead in the Wesi when second-place Cincinnati dropped a 4-1 decision to the New York Mels. Pittsburgh thumped San Diego 7-3 and San Francisco shut out Chicago 3-0. The score was 2-2 in the ninth when Northrup Jaced his second hit of the game. He moved upon a walk to Ken Singleton and then scampered home on Barry Foote's single. Ron Hunt singled home another run. The Expos needed that extra cushion because the Astros pushed across a run in the bottom of the ninth on Cesar Cedeno's two-out single. But reliever Don Carrithers nailed down the victory for Dennis Blair. Mets4.Redsl Don Hahn scored New York's first run on a double by pitcher Bob Apodaca, and then added a three-run home run as New York stalled Cincinnati. Apodaca, 4-5, permitted just two hits in seven innings and his fourth-inning double, only his second hit of the season, drove in Haln. Braves3, Phillies2 Ralph Garr doubled in the llth inning and then scored Atlanta's winning run on a sacrifice fly by Darrell Evans as the Braves edged Philadelphia.

Simmons connected on the first pitch from Geoff Zahn after the Dodger rookie had walked Joe Torre to load the bases.

Two errors by Padre shortstop Enzo Hernandez helped Pittsburgh to three runs in the first inning and Rennie Stennett homered in the second. was stacked. It was just one of those nights." While Weaver and McNally shrugged off the loss, Baltimore remained in need of assistance to repeat as American league East champions. "We've got to have help," Weaver said, "Somebody has to beat Boston and we've got to keep winning." Minnesota took its second consecutive victory in preparation for Saturday's nationally televised game with the Orioles. "We win when we're aggressive," said Quilici, "I don't think we've lost that momentum we had in July. At least the players still have their confidence." The Twins, sparked by Steve Brye doubles in each of the first two innings, took a 6-0 lead after three innings in helping veteran Bill Hands, 4-4, gain his second straight win in a star- Cogginsrf Blaircf TDavisah GrithTb JPov/pll Ib Molronph Baylor If EWilllmic Belangerss McNanyp Aiexandrp 2 0 4 2 0 2 1 1 I 2 0 5100 Bryecf 4110 Cart/lit 5021 Hf.leil 5031 Kiiitbrr 3000 5Od«rnlm3b 4 1000 KuSiCk Ib 310 4000 Braunlf 4 I 0 3000 Tnompsnss 3 1 0 3000 Rcolc 3110 4030 OCvapfi 1000 0000 Brgmanc 0000 0000 Kandsp 0000 ting role. "I have got to build my arm up again if I am going to start," said Hands, who left with two outs in the seventh inning. "He's still on the team," Quilici said of Hands, "He's done two good jobs in a row for us and we'll have to find spots for him in the rotation." Quilici admitted the inconsistency of the Minnesota pitching has made it difficult to establish a rotation. "It's been tough this year with so many of our guys up and down," he said, "Pitchers are funny. You've really got to get to know them." "Everybody's always looking for pitchers," he said, "But it's tough unless you know their emotional makeup." Minnesota's Bert Blyleven, 10-13, is scheduled to pitch against Baltimore's Mike Cuellar, 13-0, in Saturday's contest. Wichita gains final berth PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) Wichita, Kan., eliminated Richfield, Minn., from the regional Babe Ruth baseball tournament with a 9-3 victory Friday, then went on to defeat Fort Collins 5-2 to advance to today's finals. Ed Rucker hit a two-run double in the fourth inning to pace a four-run outburst and lead Wichita's attack in the first game. Three Wichita pitchers combined to scatter six hits. Against Fort Collins, Wichita, sparked by Mike Hoppock's run-scoring triple, scored three times in the first inning. They scored twice in the third inning and again in the fourth to sew up the win. Wichita meets undefeated Sugar Creek, Mo., in the finals. The double-elimination tourney is for 16-18-year-old boys.

Earlier in the day, Chris moved another step closer to her third consecutive U.S. Clay Court singles title by easily defeating No. 6 seed Virginia Ruzic of Romania 6-0, 6-1. Meanwhile, Connors, who won the men's singles at Wimbledon and is seeded first here, advanced to the quarter-finals by clobbering Germany's Hans Phomann 6-2, 6-1. Connors doubles partner, No. 2-seeded Hie Nastase of Romania, also moved into the quarters by clowning his way through a match with Dick Crealy of Australia 6-0, 6-}. Nastase fell behind 2-1 in the second set, but tied it up at 4-! before taking the final two games. The Connors-Nastase top- seeded doubles team advanced to the quarter-finals with a 5-4, 7-6 victory over Sydney Ball and Ray Keldie, both of Australia. Either today or Sunday, Connors will meet N'o. 8 Onny Pa- run of Chile in the quarters and Nastase will take on N'o. 5 Raul Ramirez of Mexico.

E top draft picks expected to play against Broncos By JOHN MOSSMAN AP Sports Writer DENVER (AP) - A healthy proportion of the top college football players in the country this past season will be wearing Minnesota uniforms tonight hen the Vikings open their preseason against the Denver Broncos at Mile High Stadium. Last January, Minnesota had six draft picks in the first three rounds. Among them are first-round selections Fred McNeill, linebacker from UCLA, and Steve Riley, a 6-foot-5, 258-pound tackle from Southern California. The second-round picks were fleet wide receiver John Holland from Tennessee State and Iowa State's rugged linebacker Matt Blair. In the third round the Vikings picked up Steve Craig, Northwestern tight end, and Scott Anderson, the Missouri center. If they all turn out to be as outstanding as Grant thinks they will be, the Minnesota coach could be faced with the task of having to decide which, and how many, veterans to dispose of once the strike by veterans is over. Opening at quarterback for the Vikings will be Jesse Kaye, a free agent who has had limited NFL experience and who also played H4 years in the Canadian League. The running backs will be Alan Dixon from Harding and free-agent Marty Shuford, who played his college ball at Arizona. Denver is counting on improved performances from quarterback John Hufnagel and running back Jon Keyworth, who were the offensive stars in the Broncos' 41-19 loss to the New York Jets last week. Hufnagel, despite getting minimal pass protection, hit on 14 of 37 passes for 214 yards and two touchdowns against the Jets. Keyworth, a 6-4, 230pounder who shows signs of improvement daily, led all rushers with 45 yards on eight carries. The Broncos' No. 1 draft choice, middle linebacker Randy Gradishar, may miss the contest. He has been wearing a light cast to protect an injured Achilles tendon. Bronco officials said they refunded 7,526 tickets for the game and expect a crowd of only about 22,000. Veterans are expected to picket outside the stadium as they did last week. No-hit pitching produces wins for Richfield, Bemidji NEW ULM, Minn. (AP) - No hit pitching produced victories for defending champion Richfield and Bemidji in the first day of the Minnesota American Legion Baseball Tournament Friday. Richfield and Bemidji later met for a second round winner's bracket game, but it was halted by rain. Also rained out after two innings was a game between another pair of first round winners, Attucks Brooks of St. Paul and Rochester. Five games in the first round and one series of losers' bracket games in the double elimination tourney, were completed before the rains occurred. Action resumes today with restarts in the Richfield-Bemidji game and Attucks-Brooks against Rochester. Richfield's righthander Jeff Matthews spun his no-hitter against Sleepy Eye, striking out 11 and walking two in the 6-0 victory. Bemidji's lefthander Andy Kannenberg was hurling his no- hit, 12 strikeout game at the same time on another field, as Bemidji beat Kenyon 6-0. He also allowed two walks. Rochester defeated Ely 1-0, Attucks-Brooks beat Willmar 7- 1 and Princeton topped Moorhead 4-0 in the other first round games. Loser's bracket games included Sleepy Eye over Kenyon 2-1, Willmar defeating Ely 10-0 and New Ulm edging Moorhead 5-4. Kenyon, Ely and Moorhead were eliminated as a result. Host New Ulm was assigned a record of one loss as it started the tournament, and New Ulm's Bryan Boelter person- nally wiped out a 4-3 Moorhead lead. He tripled in a run to tie the game in the 7th inning, and homered to win the contest in the 10th. Two winning pitchers played big roles on the bases as well. Rochester's Mike Bailey allowed seven hits in the shutout victory over Ely, and the game's only run scored in the ninth inning when Bailey walked, stole second, and scored the run on an infield error. Willmar's Dennis Jacobson hurled a 3-hitter in the night loser's bracket game against Ely, and he also had a home run and three RBIs. Attucks-Brooks carried a 28-1 record into the state tournament, that only loss coming at the hands of Willmar. The St. Paul team had two inside-the- park home runs by Paul Molitor and Jerry Boland in avenging the summer's lone defeat.

The Boston Red Sox apparently had their doubts during spring training, when they released the 36-year-old slugger. But given a chance recently by the Kansas City Royals, Cepeda is proving the Boston brass — and a lot of other people — wrong. Cepeda drove in five runs Friday night, pacing the Royals to a 13-3 romp over the Milwaukee Brewers. In five games with his new club, he has seven hits in 23 times at bat and has diven in 10 runs. Elsewhere in the American I>eague Friday, Chicago beat Cleveland 5-3, Boston defeated Oakland 6-2, Minnesota trippled Baltimore 6-2, Texas edged Detroit 4-3 in 14 innings, and California beat New York 7-1. Friday night against Milwaukee, Cepeda helped Royals ace Steve Busby post his 17th victory against nine defeats. He doubled home two runs in the first inning, then slammed a bases-loaded double to drive in three more runs in the third as Kansas City jumped out to a 121 lead. White Sox 5, Indians 3 Consecutive homers by Pat Kelly and Jorge Orta started the White Sox off to four runs in the sixth inning as they handed Gaylord Perry his sixth consecutive defeat. Perry, 15-7, held the White Sox to two hits until Kelly and Orta led off the sixth with homers to tie the score 2-2. After Dick Allen walked, Carlos May smashed a long double off the center field fence, scoring Allen with the go-ahead run. May moved to third on Bill Melton's single and scored on Bill Sharp's sacrifice fly. RedSozC, A'sZ Juan Beniquez' bases-loaded double keyed a four-run second inning that lifted the Red Sox past the A's in a battle of AL division leaders. Beniquez drove in two runs and then came around to score on an infield out and an error by Oakland shortstop Dal Maxvill. Doug Griffin drove in the other run in the inning with an infield grounder. Twins 6, Orioles 2 The Twins grabbed a 6-0 lead with two runs in each of the first three innninRs and sailed past Baltimore. Rangers 4, Tigers 3 Mike Hargrove's two-out single in the 14th inning lifted the Rangers to victory. Jim Sundberg opened the 14th with a single and moved up on a sacrifice. After Lenny Handle flied out and Jeff Burroughs was intentionally walked, Hargrove delivered his game-winning hit. Angels 7, Yankees 1 Rookie Frank Tanana stopped New York on seven hits while Bobby Valentine drove in three runs with a pair of singles. It was first victory for Tanana, 7-14, in a starting role since beating Oakland May 25. He struck out seven and did not walk a batter. OUR NEW PHONE 739-3331 MINNESOTA MOTOR CO. OPEN BOWLING Daily 1p.m. to 11 p.m. Join a Bowling League Call 736-3333 NORTHERN AIRE LANES Eyebrows rising as NFL talks drag By TOM SEPFY AP Sports Writer WASHINGTON i APi - Owners and players in the 41-dayold National Football League strike resume negotiations today under the spectre of dwindling exhibition-game attendance that has raised more than one eyebrow. None of the negotiating parties would comment on the talks, however Usery added: "We wouldn't be coming back if we weren't doing anything. If <ve had reached an impasse, we wouldn't be here at 10 a.m." While negotiations were going on, two exhibition games "ere being played, one at neighboring RFK Stadium between the Washington Redskins and the Houston Oilers, and another at Memorial Stadium between the Baltimore Colts and the Detroit Lions. The Colts game drew a dismal 6,792 spectators, and 14,768 watched the Redskins. There appeared to be two major stumbling blocks to reaching that agreement Friday. There were reports that some of the owners who had a substantial number of veterans in camp just were not as interested in getting down to serious talks as owners who had fielded a club of rookies and free agents. There also was an apparent deadlock over the role of Commissioner Pete Rozelle. The commissioner's authority in dealing with player grievances and several other so-called freedom issues still appear to be the major roadblocks to settlement, sources say. The NFLMC reported that as of Friday evening, there were 397 veterans in camp, representing 31 per cent of the entire work force. Of those vets, a management spokesman said, 126 are starters. That leaves about 500 starters still honoring the picket lines. SUNDAY SPECIALl Quarter Chicken 1 Pieces of Quik Chik Chicken, Cole Slaw and Golden French Fries —Absolutely delicious!
