(Courier News Photo by Burger) Pete Runnels New Pilot at Boston Giants Get Ambushed By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer School is still out for Ken Holtzman, but he heads the dean's list at Durocher Tech. Holtzman, 20-year-old student prince of Leo Durbcher's Chicago pitching staff, picked up another summer credit Friday night by blanking San Francisco for 7 2-3 innings as the last- place Cubs ambushed Juan Marichal and the Giants 6-0. It was the ninth victory — high among Cub pitchers — for the rookie lefthander, who began the season as a full-time scholar and will return to the University of Illinois at Chicago later this month to begin his senior year. * * * Until mid-June Holtzman, $65,000 bonus baby, was a once- a-week pitcher while concentrating on his studies. He beat Los Angeles 2-0 for his first decision in the majors but had won only three games when the school year ended. He's made the most of his summer vacation, however, winning four of his last five decisions for an overall mark of 9-13. "I used to iiave him only on weeiknds — Friday, Saturday and Sunday," said Manager Durocher. "I'm happy to have him any tune. He's quite something. He's a fine looking young left bander who really brings the ball." * * * Holtzman stopped the Giants on two hits for seven innings while nursing a 1-0 lead. The Cubs gave him a two-run cushion in the eighth, but he needed relief help with two out in the bottom of the inning when the Giants loaded the bases on a single and two walks. Bill Hands, an ex-Giant, came out of the bullpen, struck out Jim Ray Hart to end the eighth- inning threat and completed the four-hitter, pinning the loss on Marichal, now 21-6. The Giants', loss dropped them into third place in the tight National League race, two percentage points behind the Dodgers and IVi games behind league- leading Pittsburgh. The Dodgers blanked Houston 7-0 on Claude Osteen's three-hitter and the Pirates edged St. Louis 3-2 on Bill Mazeroski's bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the 12th inning.

New York Jets (AP) - The launched their American Football League season with a 19-14 defeat of the Miami Dolphins, and Joe Na- math may have won back Ms starting job at quarterback. But the Friday mgni decision over the Dolphins, brand new members of the league and decided underdogs, was so close it may have left everything up in the air for Jet Coach Weeb Ewbank. Mike Taliaferro, who led the Jets to four straight exhibition victories after the $400,000 Na- math injured his trick knee, was handled roughly by the Dolphins. He completed only four of If passes in the first half, one for a touchdown. * * * Namath fared better, hitting eight of 18 shots in the second half, but was victimized by a fourth-period Miami rally led by another expensive quarterback, •minium Mini iiinniiiiiiiiiiiniiiiniiiiiii Races Sun.

Norton threw a 43-yard touchdown pass that bounced off the hands of Bo Roberson into those of Dave Kocourek when New York was coasting with a 19-0 lead. Then Pete Jaquess, just sicked up by the Dolphins from 3an Diego, stole a Namath aerial and raced 27 yards for a score that had the Jets fighting for their lives at the end. The game was the second in which the Dolphins have surprised the veteran AFL teams. Last week, tiiey threw a scare into the Oakland Raiders before losing 23-14. * * * In other weekend AFL games, Oakland plays at Houston and Boston at San Diego Saturday night and Kansas City plays at Buffalo in a televised game game. New York took an early 2-0 lead over Miami when Verlon Biggs dumped Norton in his end zone. The Jets made it 9-0 when Taliaferro hit George Sauer with a 20-yard scoring pass.

George Altaian singled off Marichal in the fifth inning, stole second and scored the first Cub run on a single by Adolfo Phillips. San Francisco errors •helped the Cubs push, over five unearned runs in the last two innings, wrapping it up. Osteen, pitching his first complete game since July 6, scattered three singles and brought his record to 15-11 while the Dodgers punished four Houston hurlers for 14 hits, including five doubles. Successive two- baggers by Wes Parker, Willie Davis and Ron Fairly delivered two runs in the third, giving Osteen all the help he required. The Pirates loaded the bases in the 12th on Matty Alou's single, a sacrifice, an intentional walk to Roberto Clemente — who had stroked four hits — and an unintentional pass to pinch hitter Manny Mota. Mazeroski then came through with his fly to center, breaking the 2-2 deadlock. * * * Rico Carty lashed four hits, driving iri four runs, and Felipe Alou and Joe Torre homered, leading the Braves past the Mels. Atlanta snapped a 3-3 tie in the eighth with a four-run burst keyed by Carty's two-run double.

Luxora went into the fourth quarter leading 6-6 after the PAT try was fumbled." Bobby George added the clincher about midway in the fourth quarter when he traveled 21 yards around end. This drive went about 50 yards. Curtis Harrington passed to Ron Hayes for the extra point. The Panthers of B06 Harris racked up 218 yards rushing in the 3-B game. Crawfordsville did not threaten.

Runnels, twice the American League batting champion, i strictly the interim managei and not in the running for the job next year, Sox officials emphasized. The prime candidate for the post appears to be Dick Williams, former utility infielder and now manager of Boston's International League farm club in Toronto. Another possibility is Ted Williams, now a vice president of the club. The Yankees combined five- hit pitching by Fred Talbot and Stan Bahnsen, just up from Toledo of the International League, and broke a five-game losing streak. In other games in the American League, Minnesota beat Baltimore 6-1, Kansas City took Detroit 2-1 in 10 innings, Chicago edged Washington 1-0 in 10 innings and Cleveland beat California 8-7 in 10 innings.
