CHIPS IN By Bob Green MUIRFIELD, Scotland (AP) - "I had it but I let it get away," a bitterly disappointed Jack Nicklaus said Saturday, his voice low but steady. He obviously was-making an effort to control himself after his incredible comeback effort had fallen just one stroke short and Lee Trevino--still stunned by his miracle chip shot on the 17th hole--escaped with his second consecutive British Open Golf Championship. Trevino's triumph shattered Nicklaus' dream of a one-year sweep of the world's four major titles, an unprecedented feat that many players and observers have deemed impossible. Nicklaus, halfway to the goal having won the Masters and U.S. Open titles, almost added the British Open title to his list. He charged from six strokes off the pace with a course- record-matching 66, but failed to keep his quest alive single stroke at 279. 30 Foot Chip by a Lee Wins on Miracle Shot As Jack 'Lets It Get Away 9 against the side of the bunker Then cuddled the clinched been great for golf if Jack after bulldozing his way out.

"They do the job when we need them, and today we needed them," declared Virdon, whose roster has. been depleted by injuries and military reserve commitments. "With the season as long as it is, you have to be able to go to the bench," Virdon added. "And the fellows we have seem to make the most of the chances they get." Of course Pirate regulars did play a role--including Willie Stargell, who clubbed a two-run home run, and Dock Ellis and Dave Giusti who combined for a five-hitter. But the ben- chwarmers stole the show. Clines Leads Way Leading the way was Clines, batting ' .333, who played outfield because Roberto the was sidelined with a single. Jose Pegan rode the bend Seizes Opportunity Virdon called on him pinch-bit for Ellis in the sev enth inning. He seized the op portunity by tagging Houston starter Ken Forsch for a sole home run. "The manager is the boss,' to double and a sacrifice fly by Al said Pagan. "I would like to play more often, but it is the manager's decision. I go along with what's good for the team.'

CHICAGO rightfield seats. Crasher into Wall The defensJve play of the day was made by Pirate centerflel der Al Oliver in the fourth in ning. Trevino, meanwhile, chipped in from 30 feet for a par on the 17th hole, a key stroke in his 71 for 278. Tony Jacklin, the young Englishman who was gunning for a second British crown, was so shaken he three-putted the same hole from 15 feet. Starting the hole, Jacklin had been tied with Trevino for the lead. Nicklaus said he had set a target of 65 for the day's play and was six under par going to the 16th hole. He needed only to par in for the 65. But he bogeyed the 16th, missing the *reen and failing on a four-foot utt, then couldn't make a bird- e on the last two holes. Well, that's life," Nicklaus shrugged. If I had to get beaten by somebody, I'm glad it was Lee. He's some player." Almost Sorry Trevino seemed almost apologetic about winning. He was subdued, and refrained from lis usual string of wise-cracks at the presentation. I think it would have been »ood for golf for Jack to win the Grand Slam," he said. "But, you W-w,, we're all in this to win." . Jacklin, the 26-year-old Englishman who won this crown ui 1969, finished bogey-bogey, to drop from a share of the top spot to third with-a 72-280. Sanders Is Next Veteran Doug Sanders was next with a 70-281 and was followed by Brian Barnes of England, 71-283 and Gary Player of South Africa, 67-285. of the green. Trevino hit his third into even more rough and was in three inches of heather and thistle with his fourth. Jacklin pitched up about 15 feet short of the flag and was lying three while Trevino was four and not on the putting surface, ft appeared Jacklin was sure to win, possibly by two strokes. Trevino hitched his shoulder, fingered his cap, stalked to the green to survey the situation-and then chipped it in from 30 feet, just as he had done twice in a brilliant round of 66 in Friday's third round. Misses Short Putt Shaken, Jacklin three-putted for a bogey 6. He missed from about three feet on the second one. That put Trevino in front by one, Nicklaus, at the same time, needed a birdie 3 on the final hole to have any chance. He was about a foot short. Jack watched intently as fists-still folding the putter- Nicklaus had won this title and between his cheek and shoulder and grimaced in despair as the sweep became least for this impossible--at year. Jacklin put his second in the bunker on the right of the 18th green and made a bogey to drift back to third. Trevino almost down knocked with his the flagstick approach shot but missed the short putt for a birdie. Irons Work Well Playing with the awesome majesty that has made him the game's all-time leading money winner in only 11 years on the tour, Nicklaus began his tacular victory bid by his irons to the green after booming drives and the putter was working with metronome efficiency. Thousands of fans rose to their feet, applauding wildly, when the flamboyant Trevino accepted the crown and said, with out-of-character humility: "I'm proud to be your Open put his second about 35 feet to champion again. See you next the left of the flag. The putt year." More privately, in advnace of the prize-giving ceremony, Lee the ball rolled toward the flag, told friends: "It would have kept alive his bid for the Grand Slam." Goal In Million "My one goal," said Trevino, "Is to win $1 million In prize money. "If I keep going the way I am now, I should do it, hopefully, in two years." "Next year the British Open is going to be at Troon in Scotland and I'll be there," Trevino said. He joked his way around the final 18 holes and never seemed discomforted by the fact that Nicklaus was burninvit up two holes ahead of him. When Nicklaus got his fantastic charge going, however, Trevino told his playing partner, Tony Jacklin: "What the hell are we doing out here? Jack is going crazy." At that point Nicklaus was leading the field and Trevino began to look worried for the first time. "When Jack failed to birdie at the 17th, it gave us a new lease on life," Trevino said.

LOUIS (AP) - Cesar Gercmimo and Joe Morgan drove in three runs apiece as Che streaking Cincinnati Reds unleashed a 16-lrit attack to bury the St. Louis Cardinals 122 Saturday night. The victory, Cincinnati's fifth in a row, coupled with Houston's loss to Pittsburgh in an afternoon baseball game, widened the Reds' lead in the Na tional League West to 3Va games over the Astros. Singles by Pete Rose, Morgan and Bobby Tolan and Johnny Bench's sacrifice fly gave the Reds a pair of first-inning runs off Al Santorini, 4-7, before Tony Perez walked and Geronimo ripped a two-run triple to field, capping the right center outburst. The Cards got a run back the second inning on Joe Torre's double and Dal Maxville's single but Cincinnati made it 5-1 in the fourth on a walk to winning pitcher Jim McGIothlin, 4-5, Rose's double and Morgan's sacrifice fly. St. Louis scored again in the bottom of the fourth on Jose Cruz' sacrifice fly but the Reds came back with a run in the fifth on Perez' triple and Geronimo's single. And they poured across five more against reliever Joe Srzenda in the seventh, two on Morgan's single, then Rose singled across another run in the eighth.
