The Cincinnati Reds turned Qrady Hatton's h6tne» coming into a holocaust. With Manager Alston In uniform for the first time this sea* son, the ftodgers snapped St, Louis' six-game winning string Monday night by edging the National League leaders 3*2 at Los Angeles. • At Houston, meanwhile, Cincinnati went on a 22-hlt ram>age that crushed Hatton's As- ros 17*2 In their first home game In two weeks. E 1 s e w h e f e. Pittsburgh whipped the Chicago Cubs 74 under the lights and Atlanta ibwned' San Francisco 7-2 In an afternoon game. In the American League, Detroit nipped Oakland 2*1, Mlnne- iota slugged Boston 11-2 and California shaded Cleveland 3-2. Don Sutton, making his first start for the Dodgers after >eing recalled from the minors, stalled the Cardinals with relief lelp from Jim Brewer and Ade Alston's homecoming a .ppy occasion. The 56-year-old Hot had missed the Dodgers' first 16 games while recovering 'rom surgery for the removal of idney stones. Sutton scored one run, drove in another and blanked the Cards on three hits until the Iseventh inning, when two sin- Igles and Curt Flood's two-run fdouble closed the gap.

Houston played its first six games in the Dome, winning five and completing the home stand with a 1-0, 24-lnning victory over the New York Mets on April 15. Then the Astros went on the road.. .and lost eight of nine. The Reds wasted little time in making It nine of 10 and relegating Houston to the NL cellar. They scored in every Inning but the eighth, building a 4-1 early lead before exploding for six runs in the fourth. Tony Perez led the onslaught with his fourth homer and five runs batted in. Pete Rose [Stroked four hits, scored four [runs and knocked In three. Vada tPInson, Lee May, Leo Cardenas and Johnny Bench had three hits apiece, including Bench's first homer. "It was fantastic," said Houston first baseman Rusty Staub. "They just couldn't do anything wrong." Willie Stargell's two-run single and a two-run homer by Bill Mazeroski carried the Pirates past the Cubs, ending a three- game Pittsburgh losing string.

With the best-of-7 series tied 2-2, the Celtics rule a slim favorite to rebound from a 118-105 defeat at Los Angeles and move to within a single victory of regaining the NBA crown they surrendered to Phipadelphia last spring after an eight-year reign. The fourth game loss was a bitter disappointment for the Celtics, who had hoped to sweep the pair of meetings in Los Angeles and then close out the series tonight. After tonight's game, the two Rpseboro Finds Range, Twins Win By MIKE RECHT Associated Press Sports Writer Johnny Roseboro found a perfect way to ruin a day off. With a little extra effort, he hit his way out of it. The 34-year-old catcher broke out of an 0*for-29 slump by cracking five hits in five at bats Monday night, setting off Minnesota's 11*2 rout over the Boston Red Sox. "It was just a matter of time," said Ms manager, Cal Ermer. "Hozever, we planned to give him a rest Tuesday. Now we'll wait and see how he feels." After his first five-hit game In 12 seasons in the major leagues, Roseboro should be feeling just fine. Norm Cash probably won't play today, but he must be feeling okay, too, after scoring the winning run in a home plate collision that brought the Detroit Tigers a 2-1 victory over the Oakland A's. Another happy hitter who became a doubtful starter today is Rick Reichardt, who limped off the field after belting a two-run single that keyed California's 32 triumph over Cleveland In the only other American League game. only National League Pittsburgh tripped the Cubs 7-4, Cincinnati the boom on Houston 17-2 and Los Angeles downed St. Louis 3-2. Roseboro, playing his first season In the American League after his acquisition from the Los Angeles Dodgers last winter, entered the Boston game with only three hits In 49 at bats for a .061 average.

It Happened ^ and-It Cost it t r ,'" the Game By CHARLIE BAROUH Associated Press Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (AP) - Billy McCreary said the Minnesota North Stars were laying back waiting for something to happen, but when It did It cost them the game. The happening was McCreary's goal with 17:27 gone In an overtime period and It gave the St. Louis Blues a 3-2 victory over the North Stars Monday night In their National Hockey League West Division playoff game. It also gave the Blues a 3-2 edge In the best-of-7 series with the sixth game to be played Wednesday In Minnesota. "They were playing a man to man game," McCreary explained, "waiting for a break." But the Blues didn't have to wait for breaks, McCreary added. Blues' Coach Scotty Bowman worked his lines on short shifts to keep them fresh. That helped, McCreary said, It was the other way around for Minnesota, Coach Wren Blair said, "We were really tired in that overtime. St, Louis' 17 shots on goal during the over- "Fve never got off to such a bad start," Roseboro said. "When you're young, you go out of your mind. But when you're older ... I remember what Jim Gilliam told us on the Dodgers. When you're not hitting, stop complaining and go out there and give 110 per cent." " : •; : • Roseboro's hitting and three runs batted in by Ted Uhlaender made Jim Perry's third victory in four decisions easy, given a 9-1 lead In three Innings, he breezed with a six-hitter. Cash's big hit came against Oakland catcher Rene Lache- mann with two out In the ninth inning. He had forced Bill Freenan, who had been hit by a pitch, and then reached second when reliever Jack Aker walked Jim Northrup. When Don Wert, who homered in the eighth, singled to center field, Cash raced for home, but Rick Monday's throw had Mm beaten. However, Lachemann dropped the peg and Cash bar- relled Into him and his knee struck Lachemann's head, flattening the catcher. Lachemann was not seriously hurt, but Cash suffered a severe bruise and probably will sit out today's game. The play made a winner of Mickey Lolich, who yielded only four hits after an eight-day layoff because of National Guard duty. Reichardt bounced his hit up the middle In the seventh inning with the bases loaded and none out, putting the Angels ahead 21. The winning run scored later Reichardt, however, pulled a muscle running the bases and time against three Minnesota . .. . . . . chances testified to that, but ln $*tota* on a force out Blair said the shots didn't mean * "Thft comes with a home ice mt S ht ™t play today. advantage," Blair maintained.

"Many evils can creep into re- cruitino because of the overen- thusiasm of alumni, giving a little bit on the side and a little bit under the table," said Rabenhorst In an Interview. High-pressure recruiting resulted in the college basketball scandals a decade ago, Rabenhorst believes. "When you start compromising with what is true and right, how can you point your finger at someone who gambles? "I see no difference in it," added Rabenhorst. "Coach Rable," as he is affectionately known, played a major role in athletics at LSU for more than four decades, coaching a variety of sports and climaxing his career by serving as athletic director, The lengthy list of athletes who came under Rabenhorst's guidance reads like a page or two from a who's who of the sports world, Friends and former players turned out at a campus banquet Monday night to honor the amiable, graying Rabenhorst. During his years at LSU, he served as head basketball and head baseball coach, assistant football and track coach and assistant athletic director, Rabenhorst coached Alvin Dark and Joe Adcock in baseball and basketball and each sent their congratulations to their old mentor. Dark now manages the Cleveland Indians and Adcock is a former Cleveland manager, Bob Pettit, the 6-foot-9 retired star of the National Basketball Association, served as manager of ceremonies, The two-time All-American played under Rabenhorst at LSU.

That is, he keeps ihe relief pitchers busy. For a while Monday night, though, it looked like Blass might do the unexpected. Although he had pitched only one inning in a month, that In relief, he threatened to go all the way. But in the seventh inning, the dream faded. Chicago's Ernie Banks blasted a homer over the left field wall for the first Cubs' run. Lou Johnson and Adolfo Phillips singled and Pirate Manager Larry Shepard was at the mound. "I can get him," Glass said, glaring at pinch hitter Al Spangler coming up. Four pitches and a walk later, Shepard was back, and this time Blass left with him. Forty-year-old Elroy Face, who may be the reliever's reliever, came on, but he needed help too. Bob Moose, a 20-year- old rookie, provided it, and Pittsburgh finally struggled to a 7-4 victory. Blass was charged with only one run, Banks' homer, and seven hits - two in the infield - in 6 2-3 innings, Blass hasn't completed a start in 13 tries since last June and in 39 of his last 41 starts he has required relief.
