Reliever Starts, Wins, 5-3 Bv The Associated Press Bob Apodaca came out of the bullpen Monday night to give the New York Mets some much-needed relief ... as a starting pitcher. If he has his way, he'll be starting again as soon as possible . . . right back toward the bullpen. The 24-year-old rookie right- hander, whose seven previous major league appearances were all in relief, worked five innings—just enough to pick up his first victory as the Mets defeated the'st. Louis Cardinals 5-3. He allowed six hits and two runs and left when he developed a blister on his pitching hand. "I felt strong, but I wouldn't want to be a regular starter." said Apodaca, who got his starting shot because Jon Matlack pulled a muscle running before a game in Chicago on Saturday. "I really prefer relieving because you know you're in there maybe three or four times a week." Elsewhere in the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Houston Astros 8-4. the Cincinnati Reds downed the San Francisco Giants 4-1 and the Atlanta Braves shaded the San Diego Padres 7-5. Chicago. Montreal, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh were not scheduled. Dodgers 8, Astros 4 Jimmy Wynn's two-run single highlighted a five-run fifth inning and he drove in another run with a sacrifice fly. Wynn had four homers and seven RBI in his two previous games. Unbeaten Andy Messersmith scattered eight hits and picked up his fourth victory as the Dodgers widened their National League West Division lead to 5 1 '2 games over the Astros. Reds 4, Giants 1 Johnny Bench drilled his sixth home run of the season and Don Gullett and Pedro Borbon teamed up to pitch a sixhitter. Bench's solo shot came in the fourth inning and broke up a scoreless duel between Gullett and rookie JohnD'Acquisto. Despite their fourth victory in the last five games, the Reds remained in fourth place, 6'2 games behind the Dodgers. Braves 7, Padres 5 Dusty Baker drove in four runs with three singles and a homer, offsetting San Diego homers by Willie McCovey and Dave Roberts. It was the Padres' sixth consecutive loss. "It was a bad pitch." John Ellis said happily. "It was a bad pitch." Luis Tiant said sadly. It was a good pitch for Cleveland and a crummy one for Boston. It was a pitch that ended up in the left field seats, a three- run homer by Ellis in the first inning, a booming shot off the troubled Tiant that catapulted the Indians on their way to a 4-1 victory over the Red Sox Monday night. Also in the American League. Milwaukee edged into first place in the tight East Division by beating Baltimore 9-4, California belted sagging Texas 8-4, Minnesota turned back the Chicago White Sox 7-5 and Oakland shellacked Kansas City 11-2. "It was a bad pitch. It was a slider that was just hanging right there over the plate," said Ellis. "Tiant doesn't give you many of those pitches and I was lucky to take advantage of it. If he didn't do that, he probably would have shut us out." "It was a bad pitch." Tiant agreed. "But you can't win without getting runs. We haven't been getting any runs recently. I feel good and I've been pitching well and that's all that matters to me." Brewers 9, Orioles 4 "I think we're an all-around better club and this division is going to be something," said Manager Del Crandall, whose Brewers moved into first with a .519 percentage, just .002 ahead of Baltimore. .003 in front of Cleveland and .005 ahead of the idle New York Yankees. N i n e Milwaukee players drove in the nine Milwaukee runs, with Dave May. Bobby Mitchell and Johnny Briggs slugging solo homers to support Ed Sprague, who pitched six strong innings in his first start in nearly two years to get his first victory as a Brewer. Angels 8, Rangers 4 Light-hitting Charlie Sands and Paul Schaal drilled homers for the Angels, who handed Texas its eighth loss in the last nine games. Twins 7, White Sox 5 Larry Hisle doubled in two runs in the fifth inning and Glenn Borgmann singled for Times Herald, Carroll, la. • Tuesday, May 14, 1974 O two in the seventh to carry Minnesota past the White Sox. A's 11, Royals 1 Vida Blue checked Kansas City on six hits—one of them Hal McRae's homer—while his Oakland teammates battered the Royals with 19 hits, including a two-run single by Ray Fosse in a four-run sixth inning and a two-run double by Ted Kubiak in a three-run eighth. The A's fifth victory in a row moved them into first place in the West Division, one-half game ahead of the White Sox. FUN NIGHT There will be ladies golf Wednesday night at the Carroll County Club.

Maury John, who missed most of the season because of cancer, says he has gained 10 pounds and feels "fine." He left Monday for the Big Eight Conference spring meeting in Lincoln, Neb., whi ch is being held in conjunction with the conference outdoor track meet. "I'm sure one of the topics of discussion will be the future of the 30-second clock." he said. "I would be in favor of dropping its use in the Big Eight if it doesn't become a national rule," John added. "If all schools don't use it, I feel it just louses up play." John has announced that he will return to fullt ime coaching next year. He guided the university starts in the annual Iowa college all-star game in late March. ISUSignee Iowa State basketball coach Maury John says he has signed his third prospect to a national letter of intent. Art Johnson, a 6-foot-7. 205-pound forward at San Jacinto Junior College in Pasadena. Texas, will enroll at Iowa State this fall.

Johnson formerly attended ISU for one quarter before transferring to San Jacinto a year and half ago. Diver Signs Bob Olson, a diver from Berwyn. 111., has signed a national letter of intent to enroll at Iowa State.

Cedar Rapids Selected as Legion Site CEDAR RAPIDS — Cedar Rapids will host the 1975 seven-state Central Plains Regional American Legion baseball tournament. Ray Brown, commander of Hanford Post No. 5 in Cedar Rapids, announced Monday that the post has received a telegram from the national commission formally naming the site. Winner of the eight-team, double-elimination tournament will advance to the American Legion World Series in Rapid City. S.D. Exact dates for the regional have not been set. Brown said, but will be over a seven to nine-day period in August. Bowling INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Texan Johnny Rutherford is out of the running for the May 26 Indianapolis 500-mile race pole position, but he proved Monday he might have had a chance. Rutherford, last year's pole sitter, cranked up a practice lap at 191.693 miles per hour Monday—faster than the four- lap qualifying average of 191.632 m.p.h. that, at least temporarily, gave fellow Texan A.J. Foyt the inside front row starting spot. Nine drivers will have a chance to nudge Foyt aside next weekend because last Saturday's qualifying session was shortened by rain. Rutherford, however, is not among them. In practice before time trials began, Rutherford's Team McLaren broke an engine. The power plant was replaced quickly, but the car failed to appear in the qualifying line by the 11 a.m. deadline. Rutherford was ready when his turn in line came—acceptable in some races—but Chief Steward Tom Binford chose to make a strict interpretation of the rules. "I don't feel we had a fair chance," Rutherford said. "I feel badly about the situation not only personally, but for my crew as well. I've never seen an engine changed much quicker. "Without our McLaren in the running for the pole, A. J.'s chances of holding onto the position are quite good. I really believe we could have made a serious run for it." The pole position, accompanied by more than $10,000 in prize money, is worth even more in personal appearances and endorsements. In that respect, Rutherford received more notoriety last year than race winner Gordon Johncock. His qualifying lap of 199.071 m.p.h. is the track record. Similar mechanical misfortune hit two-time 500 winner Al Unser before Saturday's qualifying session and he, too, was unhappy with Binford's ruling. "I blew an engine trying to qualify in 1972 and started 19th," he said. "I didn't like it but I knew I had a fair chance, so I kept my mouth shut. I don't like to sound like a cry baby, but I don't think we, Rutherford or I, got a fair deal." Unser, who switched from a Parnelli chassis to an Eagle late last week, drove his speed up to the 188 m.p.h. range Monday at practice on the 2Vfe-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval. He and Rutherford were among 27 drivers who braved the gusty winds in practice. Unser's brother Bobby and Foyt were the only ones joining Rutherford over the 190 m.p.h. mark.
