Tiant hurled his fourth straight shutout Sunday, beating Baltimore on four hits as Cleveland took the first game of a doubleheader 2-0, Stan Williams then tacked on eight more scoreless innings before Brooks Robinson homered to break the spell but the Indians completed the sweep, 4-1. If the Orioles were somewhat suspicious of Tiant' s shutout string before Sunday, it was understandable. The Cuban-born right-hander had a 0-6 lifetime record against them in four previous big-league seasons. But he struck out nine and was in control all the way, besting Tom Phoebus In a pitcher's duel. Tony Horton's sixth inning single gave Tiant the only run he needed and Dave Nelson's suicide squeeze bunt brought In the other in the ninth. Elsewhere in the American League Sunday, Boston swept a doubleheader from New York 8-1 and 4-2, Washington dropped Detroit 6-3, Minnesota rapped California 4-2 In 10 innings and Oakland took Chicago 6-2.

Sal Bando socked three hits and drove In two runs as the Athletics raked Chicago. Tony Pierce, making his first start of the season, won it with Jack Aker coming out of the bullpen to get the last out.

Canadiens Win But It Was Close MONTREAL (AP) Montreal Canadiens won Stanley Cup, but veteran goaltender Glenn Hall of the St. Louis Blues probably put the series in its proper perspective with his post-game comments. "You could have flipped a coin In some of those games to decide the winner," Hall said, after the tenacious Blues had bowed out in four straight games with Saturday's 3-2 loss. The victory, before a crowd of 15,505, gave Montreal its 13th Stanley Cup since 1930 and its third in a four-year span. The powerful Canadiens, who swept through the Boston Bruins in four straight and beat the Chicago Black Hawks In five games, were limited to a one- goal margin in each of their four victories over St. Louis. They won by 3-2, 1-0, 4-3 and 3-2 margins, with the first and third games decided In over- Wilson, who missed this event time.

Montgomery, a 175-pound sophomore-to-be from Carrollton, Tex,, scored one touchdown on a three-yard burst and directed another scoring drive as he hit on eight of 14 passes for 114 yards, The White victory was not assured until the final four minutes when a trio, led by tackle Terry Don Phillips, stopped David Dickey at the goalllne on a two-point conversion attempt that would have given the Reds a one-point edge. Montgomery's score came on a three-yard run with 11:30 remaining in the second period, The other White touchdown went to Russell Cody on a one- yard dive with 14 seconds remaining in the third quarter and Cody then ran for a two- point conversion that proved to be the difference, Dickey drove one yard for a Red score with 4:16 left in the second period and quarterback John Eichler passed 16 yards to Max Peacock for the other with 3:36 left. Bob White, who kicked the extra points for both teams, converted once for the Reds. Eichler, a starting quarterback for much of the previous season, hit on 10 of 12 passes for 93 yards as an estimated 6,500 persons watched the Intra- squad battle at War Memorial Stadium. Car Won't Be Repaired in Time INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) Its frame badly wrenched in a practice accident Sunday, the STP turbocar that nearly won last year's Indianapolis 500mile race probably won't be repaired in time to make the May 30 classic. Driver Joe Leonard, San Jose, Calif., bumped the first turn wall after turning laps in the 166 mile per hour range. Leonard was not injured. STP President Andy Granatel- 11 said he does not think the car, No. 40, can be repaired In time for the race. "We may figure out a way to get the job done in time to qualify It," he said. "But right now it looks like the car never will run again." The turbine, then driven by Parnelli Jones, led nearly all the 1967 race until a minor gear failure eliminated it with only minutes remaining. Another turbine fared better in Sunday's practice. Mario Andretti, Nazareth, Pa., tested the vehicle In which Engish driver Mike Spence was killed Tuesday and turned In four laps In the 167 m.p.h. range.
