One-Hitter by Renko, 5-0 By The Associated Press The wind was just right for Steve Renko. The sudden breezes that Larry Dierker felt were caused by the baseballs whizzing past him. "Renko is a great breaking ball pitcher when the wind is blowing from right field to left as it was tonight/' said Montreal Manager Gene Mauch after Renko hurled a one-hitter that gave the Expos a 5-0 victory over Philadelphia. Dierker also had a one-hitter Tuesday night—for six innings. Then Cincinnati's Cesar Geronimo slugged a leadoff homer in the seventh and Johnny Bench and Dan Driessen drove in runs that wrecked Houston, giving the Reds a 3-2 victory over Dierker and the Astros. In Tuesday's other National League games, New York beat Chicago 5-1, San Diego defeated San Francisco 3-1, Los Angeles edged Atlanta 2-1 and St. Louis outlasted Pittsburgh 8-7. "This has got to be my best game so far this season," understated Renko, who wound up with the third one-hitter of his six-year career in the majors. The other two came a month apart, against San Francisco and Philadelphia in 1971. He gave up only a one-out sixth-inning single by Dave Cash, a pitch punched into right field. "He hit a curve ball," said Renko. "I jammed him with it. He didn't hit it that well." Reds 3, Astros 2 Joe Morgan, who had singled in the first inning, drew his second walk of the game after Geronimo's belt, and Bench scored him. banging a double to right field. Driessen then singled Bench home. Mets 5, Cubs 1 Jerry Koosman pitched a four-hitter and Ed Kranepool gave him the big hit he needed, a three-run homer in the third inning, to lead the Mets past the Cubs. Padres 3, Giants 1 Dave Rader's error at the plate let San Diego's first run in the seventh inning, then Bobby Tolan singled home two more to send the Giants down to their 16th loss in 19 games. Dodgers 2, Braves 1 Steve Garvey and Ron Cey singled home ninth-inning runs to shove Los Angeles over the Braves. The victory went to Mike Marshall, the hard-working reliever who has won the Dodgers' last four triumphs to boost his record to 8-3. Cards 8, Pirates 7 Ken Reitz singled in the eighth inning, Mike Tyson doubled him home, then Lou Brock singled Tyson in with the winner, overcoming a four-run Pittsburgh burst in the top of the inning and pushing the Cards not only past the Pirates but past Times Herald, Carroll, la. m M Wednesday, June 26, 1974 I 4 Philadelphia as well— and into first place in the East by one slim percentage point.

But with the July 10 starting date for the new league drawing nearer, the prospect that fans will end up holding an empty bag grows less. And as the league gains credence, it also gains sales. The Honolulu Hawaiians say they have sold nearly 7,000 season tickets and hope to boost the figure to 12,000-15,000. The big sales boost could be the WFL's first appearance on television. /VU>NTC,OAAEK> "Fans just want to see that we're for real," said Stu Zanville, the Hawaiians' administrative director. "They want to make sure we really exist before putting out any money." Most of the 5,000 season tickets and about 80 per cent of the 16,000 tickets sold for the Detroit Wheels' first home game has come in the past three weeks "since we announced our schedule," said Brian Rekiel, team promotion manager. He said about 70 per cent of season tickets have been sold to companies in blocks of four. The Chicago Fire is stoking its publicity flame even before the season gets underway, in hopes of reaching 20,000 season ticket holders to fill the 55,700seat Soldier Field. "We're close to leading the league in ticket sales," said owner Tom Origer, who said he has spent between $1 million and $1.25 million so far in hopes of keeping losses to around $500,000. "We've done a pretty good job of organizing all the way around, so I think we'll lose maybe only half of the $1 million most of the other clubs may lose this season." The Houston Texans also have hired a sales force. The result has been more than 4,000 season tickets and a "super" reception, say team officials. Larry Hatfield, president of the California Sun, reports he is "pleasantly surprised" by the 17,511 season tickets sold through June 18, while officials of the Memphis Southmen report they are pleased by the 5,000 season tickets sold in four weeks.

The traffic weight operations divison is charged with insuring trucks operating in the state meet Iowa laws concerning weight, size and other specifications. The Midwest Research Institute initially made a study in 1968 of the traffic weight operations division, spelling out the optimum number of weight officers on the basis of cost, i.e., receiving more in fines from the enforcement effort than was being spent. Dennis Ehlert, the commission's director of traffic weight operations, told the commission because of new factors, including increased truck traffic, truckers' use of citizens band radio, additional weigh stations and additional duties of enforcing Iowa's fuel tax laws, he felt the study should be updated. The Kansas City firm has agreed to update the 1968 study for a $23,700 fee.

Sheriff's officers said Mrs. Burnham and Frances Bainbridge, 80, of Kingsley, Iowa, were on the porch of the house about 10 miles north of Bemidji when they heard voices in the yard. When the women went out to investigate, they were accosted by four men who forced them into the house at gunpoint, officers said. They said that one of the young men found a .22-caliber pistol in the house, pointed it at Mrs. Burnham and asked, "Is this pistol loaded?" She replied that it was. He then pulled the trigger but the hammer hit on a dead cylinder. When neighbors arrived to investigate noises at the Burnham home, the intruders fled with $30 cash from the women's purses, credit cards, drivers licenses, a camera, some food and the pistol.
