Ati, (Unto 2!, 19§8 Hope M Star SPORTS Astros Detroit in Exhibition By HERSCHEL NlSsENSON Associated Press sports Wrller B6 and Jo are the talk of the baseball world these days but the Houston Astros are perfectly happy with Don and Tom, thank you. While playboy Bo Belinsky and Playboy's Jo Collins were announcing plans to get married, right-handers Don Wilson and Tom Griffin were combining to pitch a one-hitler as the Astros edged Detroit 2-1 Wednesday In an exhibition baseball game. There Were other Interesting developments on the baseball front. Willie Mays had two teeth yanked by a dentist and Boston pitcher Dave Morehead almost lost a couple when he ran Into a wall during a volley ball game. There was some baseball played, too. Phil Llnz and Ed Charles, who aren't even on the roster, sparked the New York Mets to a 5-1 triumph over Baltimore. Oakland's Sal Bando continued his spring slugging, cracking his sixth homer as the Athletics clubbed Cincinnati 6-2. Mickey Mantle belted homer No. 1, starting the New York Yankees to a 9-1 victory over the minor league Mexico City Red Devils in the Mexican capital. Dick Ellsworth became the first Boston hurler to work seven innings, checking his former Philadelphia teammates on one run and seven hits in a 6-1 Red Sox victory. Orlando Cepeda's lOth-inning single scored the winning run as St. Louis overcame eight errors and edged Los Angeles 9-8. Willie Stargell's sacrifice fly drove in the decisive run as Pittsburgh shaded the Chicago White Sox 2-1. -.''••' VEGAS, Nev. - Adolph Prultt, 139, Los Angel es, knocked out Johnny DePelza 137, Trinidad, BWt, i. Juniors Are Edged in Track Meet By RALPH ROUTON Star Sportswriter After leading through every event, the Hope Bobklttens track squad lost a six-team meet In the mile relay by 65-61 to Texarkana Westlawn yesterday afternoon at the HHS track. Although Hope took more first- places, Westlawn rode the strength of solid seconds and thirds to victory. Hope led 5955 entering the mile relay, but Westlawn won that event for 10 points while the Kittens finished fourth for 2 points. Some of the better performances camo in the field events. Jackie Riggle of Arkadelphis hurled the discus 145' 4" to rank among the state's best, and Charles Moore of Dierks won the broad jump with a fine leap of 18' 2". Hope's Ray Wheel- Ington, just an 8th grader, showed great promise by flashing to victory in the 100 in 11 flat. Ray's brother Gary, a freshman, also did well, anchoring the 440 and 880 relay teams to wins. (RESULTS) (Junior Division) 440 relay- 1. Hope 2. Westlawn 3. Columbia Time— :49.4 100 dash-(1st heat) 1.

The Chicago Cubs collected 17 hits and buried San Francisco 10-4. Atlanta bombed Minnesota's Dave Boswell for 13 hits in 3 1-3 innings and nipped the Twins 86. Sandy Vaidespino, sold by the Twins to the Braves last fall, socked a three-run homer. The only hit allowed by Houston's Wilson-Griffin combine was a homer by Detroit's Al Ka- llne. It came off Wilson, who went five innings, fanning five. Wilson, who pitched a no-hitter last season, Is expected to be one of Houston's pitching mainstays. But Griffin, a 20-year-old rookie, had only a 3-9 record last season with two minor lague clubs. While Griffin was making his pitch for a major lague job, Be- llnsky, who is on the roster of Houston's Oklahoma City farm team, left his baseball future in doubt. The fun-loving southpaw said he and Miss Collins, a 39-24-38 beauty on.ce tabbed as Playboy's "Playmate of the Year," would be married in about four months, when her pending divorce becomes final. "This is true love," said Belinsky, who has kept company with such entertainment notables as Mamie Van Doren, Tina Louise and Kay Stevens, Belinsky left the Houston camp earlier in the week after being denied permission to stay out past curfew on a date with Miss Collins, He said if the Astros assign him to the minors he'll quit baseball and move to Hawaii, where he and Miss Collins will run "a swinging dude ranch." "I'm in love," he said, "and from now on it's Bo and Jo." English is the official language of Liberia- ders, Westlawn terson, Westlawn :16.8 (2nd heat) 1. Hill, Dierks 2. Wheellngton, Hope 3.

(AP) Gary Player plans to quit the pro golf tour when he's 40, but the 32-year-old South African says he feels now that he could play forever. "No man on the pro tour Is more physically fit than I am," Player said after shooting a 64 in a final tuneup for today's start of the $80,000 Pensacola Open. "I'll probably quit playing competitive golf when I'm 40," he said. "If I lived In America I probably would play until I am 50, but It Is tto difficult when I have to leave my family and my ranch and come over here." Player Is the only member of the Big Three bidding for the Pensacola title. Both Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus passed up this tournament. "I really played well," Player said of his 64 Wednesday, which set the pace for the pro-am prelude to the start of the tournament. A string of sub-par rounds will be needed to win the Pensacola title on the 6,380-yard country club course where Gay Brewer trimmed 26 strokes off par with a 262 total a year ago. Other favorites Include Doug Sanders and Dan Sikes, winner of the Citrus Open last Sunday, Sanders and Sikes each shot 67s in the pro-am, and Brewer fired a 69. Green Team Saves Best for Last By JA6K STEVENSON Associated Press spofis Writer LOS ANGELfcS (AP) - With talk centering on Houston and UCLA, many overlook the obvious fact that either Ohio State of North Carolina will be In the NCAA basketball finals, The surprising Buckeyes of the Big fen and the Tar Heels battle in the opening semifinal game on Friday night at 7 p,m«, PST, before Elvln Hayes leads No. 1 rated Houston against the Lew Aicindor — led No, 2 Bruins of UCLA at 9 p.m. Winners of the two fames meet at 7 p»m, Saturday to decide the national championship won by UCLA last year, Coach John Wooden of the defending champs says either Houston or his UCLA Bruins might suffer a letdown after winning Friday night, Hayes and Aicindor are All- Americans and so Is North Carolina's Larry Miller, who could steal the show. The 6-foot-4-lnch senior averaged 22,7 points during a campaign which saw the Tar Heels post a 27-3 record and rank No. 4 In the AP poll. Miller's top help probably will come from 6-10 Rusty Clark, most valuable player In the Eastern reglonals, and G-5 sophomore guard Charlie Scott, whose moves remind some of Oscar Robertson. This marks the second time the NCAA championships have been held In California and U was Ohio State which won the first time, with a 75-55 victory over California at San Francisco In 1960. Iowa led the Big Ten until beaten by Michigan In the final conference game. That tied the Hawkeyes with the Buckeyes and Ohio State won in a playoff. Then came a surprising 82-81 triumph over Kentuckey for the regional title. Bill Hosket leads the Buckeyes scorers with a 20.4 average, but the quarterback has been Denny Meadors, a 6-foot guard, who was injured a year ago and didn't return to his best 'playing shape until the current JMfll/ campaign was one-third over. in w j ' ~w en Ohlo state ^gan to .click. •*$!
