DAILY SUN Watson scores sport's millionth run Sp orts "When the ball was hit, I had to hold up because it looked like Bobby Murcer had a play on it," Watson said. "I went back to second to tag, then I ran hard when I saw it was over. "Give Miltvcredit, too," he added. "It wouldn't have been possible without his homer. I played such a small part in this great game I'm just glad I could do my part." Back in Cincinnati, Concepcion was still drinking in the cheers of the crowd and the congratulations of his teammates when the word went up the scoreboard that he was run No, 1,000,001., He'd been flying past third base when Watson scored.
"It broke my heart," Concepcion said. Then, turning philosopher, he added: "Maybe my grandchildren will get the 2 millionth Concepcion returned to the plate in the seventh inning to hit a tie-breaking double off Niekro that gave the Reds a 3-2 victory over the Braves.

"We're due to break out," Boston captain John Ha vlicek said after the Celtics hit on just 39 per cent of their field goal attempts Saturday in a 101-90 victory over the Bullets. "We couldn't shoot any worse than we have so far in this series." Veteran forward Paul Silas, who contributed 10 points while grabbing 25 rebounds as the Celtics remained alive in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference final, tried to 'explain the shooting. "When you have to make the shots, it's not the Silas said. "If you're up by 13, the rim looks as big as the ocean.
But if you're down, it can look very small." Despite the third game victory after two losses, Boston Coach Tommy Heinsohn was concerned with the team's over-all shooting. "It could have been a 30-point game," Heinsohn said. "We were very effective on defense and got the second shots on the offensive boards, However, we still didn't shoot well and that bothers me. Havlicek, Dave Cowens and Jo Jo White led Boston scorers in the third game, but none hit on 50 per cent of his shots. Havlicek connected on land (J.

The Warriors trail 2-1 in their National Basketball Association Western Conference final playoff series with the Chicago Bulls, who Sunday won their second in a row at the Chicago Stadium with a 108-101 triumph. Now the Warriors, who started fast but were pinned on the ropes the entire second half by the sharp-shooting of Chicago's Norm Van Lier, have Tuesday and Thursday night contests on their own court to recoup in the best-of-seven series.
"We knew there was a possibility of losing both our games here," said Warrior Coach Al Attles, "and the pressure is on us." The Warriors won the series opener at Oakland 107-89 and very nearly took the second game here Wednesday night before the Bulls snatched it 90-89 on Tom Boerwinkle's field goal in the last two seconds. But there was nothing three. Mike Torrez, 3-1, stopped the Tribe on five hits. Indians rallied in the nightcap to win in the 11th inning when Frank Puffy doubled and scored on a single by George Hendrick, his fourth hit of the game. Cleveland's Oscar Gamble iand Baltimore's Dave Duncan exchanged solo home runs.

Trevino, the leader through the first two days, never really got in the chase after opening the final round four strokes back. He played his last round in 74147' for the last two rounds and finished well back at 282.
Arnold Palmer had a closing 69 for 289. Jack Nicklaus, Johnny Miller, Gary Player and Tom Weiskopf did not compete.

"There is no substitute for victory," the veteran Crampton said Sunday after he'd scored by two strokes over challenging Dr.
Gil Morgan, a far-sighted eye doctor who decided to take up golf instead of fitting glasses after receiving his doctorate from the Southern College of Optometry. Crampton, an Australian native now living in Dallas, made the cut comfortably on Friday, took the lead from struggling Lee Trevino the next day and scored by two strokes Sunday with a last-round 69 and a 273 total, 15-under-par on the Woodlands Country Club course, a layout that was hacked out of a South Texas pine woods less than a year ago. Morgan, now in his second year of tour activity, briefly tied Crampton three times on the front nine of the final round but couldn't stand the pace. Bruce dropped a pair of 15-foot birdie putts coming home that Morgan couldn't match. "I knew I was close," Morgan said.

Bumbry drove in four runs and DeCinces Pacers get spot in finals DENVER (AP) Several weeks ago, before the American Basketball Association playoffs got under way, Denver Coach Larry Brown said he didn't feel the homecourt advantage would be of much importance in post-season play. Observers might have doubted Brown's sincerity, By HOWARD SMITH AP Sports Writer Minnesota's Rod Carew and New York's Chris Chambliss were 90 feet away from glory they came up a couple of feet short.
Carew and Chambliss were both tossed out at home moments before Houston's Bob Watson scored major league baseball's one millionth run Sunday. Watson collected a gold watch for his feat. Carew could take consolation in the Twins' 6-3 victory over Kansas City. Chambliss and the Yankees got nothing but an '11-4 pasting from Milwaukee. "I knew it would have been the one millionth run because the word was relayed from the dugout," said Carew, who was thrown out at the plate by right fielder Al Cowens on a short fly ball in the second inning.
"I don't think it really would have meant that much." Chambliss missed his chance in the fourth when Milwaukee first baseman George Scott caught him trying to score on a grounder. "I did that to Chambliss? I didn't know that," said Scott. "Poor Chambliss. That's all I can say, man poor Chambliss. If I knew that maybe I wouldn't have -thrown him I would have, too." Elsewhere in the American League, Texas edged California 1-0; Baltimore and Cleveland split a doubleheader, the Orioles winning the opener 11-1 and the Indians taking the nightcap 4-3 in 11 innings; Chicago beat Oakland 5-2, and a Detroit-Boston doubleheader was rained out.

Hughes surrendered just four hits to earn his first major nine of 20 while scoring 26 points. Cowens hit on 10 of 27, finishing with 24 points. White had 21 points, but managed to hit on just nine of 25 field goal attempts. The Celtics threw up a tight pressing defense to pull away from Washington in the third quarter.
The Bullets scored just 10 points in the third period and Boston was home free with a 14-point lead heading into the final quarter.
