UNIFAX ates Continue to Slump Chicago New York Montreal Pittsburgh Philadelphia St. Louis San Francisco Houston Cincinnati Los Angeles Atlanta San Diego 2 4 5 7 11 gb m 3 4 9 10% By FRED DOWN n c UPI Sports Writer Kirst, the bad news about the Pittsburgh Pirates. They've lost six jn a row and look awful. They have a 12-15 won-lost record for the season and are fivS'^ames out of first place in the National League East. Is it time to conclude that the losi ^of the late Roberto Clemente means that the three- time division champions are just another team? WelL there is some good news." Most of the Pirate sluggers are hitting well and the ©irly-season pitching problems they've experienced aren't new.^If s true that the Pirates hai *a 15-12 record after 27 games last season but it's also trye^at they were six games out of first place. Sfnaperhaps it's too early to a knowledgeable National Leaguer is repeating warnings made during spring training that the Pirates just wouldn't be the same without Clemente. They certainly didn't look the same Monday night when Ron Fairly's lOth-inning homer lift ed the Montreal Expos to a 3-2 victory and dealt the Pirates their sixth straight loss. Manny Sanguillen and Milt May, key men in the changes made by Manager Bill Virdon to compensate for the loss of Clemente, each had three hits. But the big hit was lacking and reliever Tom Walker won his second game for Montreal with two innings of shutout pitching. San Diego defeated San Francisco, 7-1, Atlanta beat Houston, 7-1, and Philadelphia topped St. Louis, 10-5, in other NL games. New York and panic: On the other hand, many | Chicago were postponed be cause of cold weather and the other teams weren't scheduled. American League scores were California 3 Kansas City 2, Cleveland 2 Milwaukee 1, Detroit 8 New York 0, Boston 1 Baltimore 0, Oakland 5 Chicago 1 and Minnesota 6 Texas 4 after Texas won the first game 7-6. The Pirates led 2-0 after six innings with the help of Sanguillen's fourth homer of the year but Bob Bailey doubled home a run for the Expos in the seventh and they tied the score in the eighth when Boots Day scored from third on what should have been an inning-ending double play. Then came Fairly's homer and another loss for the Pirates. Ex-San Francisco farmhand Mike Corkins pitched a six- hitter to win his third game for the Padres. Rookie Johnny Grubb singled in v the tie- breaking run and Clarence Gaston hit a two-run triple during a five-run San Diego seventh which dealt Tom Bradley the loss. Bobby Bonds homered for the Giants. Mike Lum's three-run double climaxed a five-run seventh inning rally and he also homered in Atlanta's triumph over Houston. Carl Morton went eight innings for his third win with Danny Frisella pitching the ninth for the Braves. Tom Griffin was the loser. Mike Schmidt drove in three runs with three hits for the Phillies, who sank the Cardinals with a six-run fourth inning outburst which handed Reggie Cleveland his fourth defeat. Ken Brett allowed six hits, struck out three and walked one in seven innings in evening, his record at 1-1 for the Phillies. Gurney's Team Dominates JffBlANAPOLIS, Ind. (UPI) —*bah Gurney's three-car team domjdated a rain-shortened pragjjce session at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Monday with only 10 driver-car combinations braving cool, windy conditions to lap the famed 2%-mile course. i Bobby Unser, who lost his 1972 pole position to .an impressive record-setting performance by Johnny Rutherford Mild TOMORROW Time to lasuiate WHITE'S PHONE 342-0185 in the opening day of qualifica tions Saturday, had the top time at the Speedway Monday at 192.102 miles per hour. Unser and teammates Jerry Grant and Wally Dallenbach devoted themselves to race-like conditions in preparation for the May 28 running of, the annual Memorial Day classic. The Eagles of Gurney's All- American racers from Santa Ana, Calif., hold the' second, 18th and 19th starting positions at the moment in the partial starting field of 30 cars. Three positions are still to be filled next weekend in the final two days of qualifications. 1 Sam Posey is the first driver His 187.921 m.p.h. four-lap average in a new Eagle entered by Champ Carr Enterprises of California is the slowest of the cars now qualified. Grant was clocked at just over 188 and Dallenbach at 187.8 during the practice session which was cut short by rain most of the afternoon. The speeds of the Gurney team trio, well below their qualifying times, led to speculation they were practicing with full fuel loads in an effort to set the car up for racing conditions. Greg Weld turned on the yellow light when his car broke an oil line. Rookies Box Scores Chlcafo Jeter 4 Andre's 4 D. Allen 4 Melton 4 Hend's'n 3 Reich'dt 3 Eton 3 Orta 2 H.
