Sunday's Results East Division Semifinals Both teams have collected some new faces they hope will help them this season. Off-season trades brought sluggers Richie Allen from St. Louis and Duke Sims from Cleveland to the Dodgers. Los Angeles hopes the two will raise the team's home run average, a dismal 87 last year, lowest in the majors. Allen, who has averaged more than 32 home runs a year, starts in left field. Sims,a catcher who hit 23 home runs last year, will be sitting on the bench as veteran Tom Haller is expected to open behind the plate. "I'm pretty sure we've helped out offensive side," said Dodger Manager Walter Alston. "We been without power for a long time." The Astros acquired shortstop Roger Metzger from the Chicago Cubs organization. Therookie had a fine spring and will start Monday night, allowing veteran Denis Menke, a .304 hitter last year, to move to first base. Manager Harry Walker says the Astros are the best club he has brought out of spring training. Two young pitchers, Tom Griff in and Don Wilson, seemed to have recovered from arm troubles, he said. "We are good enough to make a run for it," Walker said. "If arms stay good we could be real tough."
