(UP!) ) Wis* of the St, Louis , lis and Jim Hunter of •thl»iorld champion Oakland •Atlil* expected to he named tog pitchers today tor Jiy night's 41th All-Star between the National and can leagues. selection of Wise and tti$$jr will bring to center stage'-., in baseball's annual showcase event two of the most •-publicized pitchers in the a year ago, owner Quisle Busch of the Cardinals iwalwinder intense criticism for ihatt traded Steve Carlton to thejjiillies for Wise. Carlton hate* 27-10 record for the Phillies while Wise had a 16-16 mark lor the Cardinals. Carlton was not even chosen for the lift NL All-star squad by Manager Sparky Anderson of the Cincinnati Reds. Hunter, who has pitched a perfect game and been a two- time 20-game winner during his career, has consistently been under-publicised in comparison to such AL pitchers as teammate Vida Blue, Mickey Lolich of Detroit, Oaylord Perry of Cleveland and, for that matter, Nolan "Double No Hit" Ryan of California. As the advance guard of the stars of both leagues and baseball notables gathered for the game in Kansas City's spanking new Harry S. Truman playground, NL Manager Anderson was also forced to make another move. Cincinnati short* stop Dave Conception suffered i broken left ankle Sunday and was replaced as backup short* stop by Bill Russell of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Chris Speier of the San Francisco Giants, the fans' choice as the shortstop, will start the game for the Nationals. A 6-feot-2, 195-pound right- hander from Jackson, Mich,, Wise has an 11-5'record this season and has played a major role in the Cardinals' spectacular rise to first place in the NL's Eastern Division. The Cardinals, who early in the OALfiSBURO) ILL., MON., JULY IS, 1W3 PAGE 18 season had a S-20 record, took over first place in the division Sunday. St. Louis Manager Red Schoendienst, advised by Anderson that Wise was his preferred selection to start the All-Star game, cooperated Sunday by relegating his star to "possible" bullpen duty. Wise warmed up but did not appear in the Cardinals' S-4 victory over the Dodgers. Hunter, a r -year old right* handir from Hertford, N.C., who pitched his perfect game against Minnesota in itM, has a 164 record this season. He had a 21-11 record in 1971 and a 21-7 slate for the world champions in 1972. He also beat the Reds twice in the World Series. Also available for use on the mound to Schoendienst are Claude Osteon, Don Sutton and Jim Brewer of the Dodgers, Jack Blllingham of the Reds, Dave Gtuitt M the Pittsburgh Pirates, Wayne twitchell of the Phillies and Tom leaver of the New York Met*. Blllingham and Stiver each went nine innings on Sunday. Rounding out Dick Williams' AL staff are Ryan and Bill Singer of the Angels, Ken Holtzman and Rollie fingers of the A's, Jim Cotborn of the Milwaukee Brewers, Bill Lee of the Boston Red Sox, Sparky Lyle of the New York Yankees and Bert Blyleven of the Minnesota Twins. Holtzman is the only AL All-Star pitcher who went nine Innings on Sunday. N I The NL starting lineup will be composed of first bajemin Hank Aaron, second baseman Joe Morgan, Speier at short, Ron Santo at third, an outfield of Pete Rose, Billy Williams and Cesar Cedeno and catcher Johnny Bench. , The AL starting lineup will have an Infield of John Mayberry, Rod Carew, Bert Campaneris and Brooks Robinson, an outfield of Reggie Jackson, Bobby Mureer and Amos Otis and Carlton frisk behind the plate. All the starters are required, barring injury, to play the first three innings with the managers free to substitute at will thereafter. No pitcher is al­ lowed to work more than three innings, except under unusual circumstances, such .as an extra-inning game, under All- Star rules. The often-troubled mid-summer classic began In IMS as a promotion * for the, Chicago World's Mir; and hai/drawnits share of criticism this year because Anderson failed to select tf<year old Willie Mays of M Mets and Williams passed over Ryan. Both were added to the stars, who'll be on view before a national TV audience estimated at ' 60-milllon through the intervention of Commissioner Bowie Kuhn, NL President Charles Feeney and AL President Joe Cronin. ards Take Over First in : Bjp&iitcd Press International : tOflnyone had predicted in MgjR that the St. Louis Capitals would be in first place by the All-Star break, ithev^lrobaWy would have been greeted with a long, hard .'laiih, •imiiiwiin. .

Del Unser doubled and later scored oh a wild pitch in the eighth inning of the first game for what proved the winning run when Darrell Evans of Atlanta led off the bottom of the ninth with his 27th homer. Tom Seaver scattered eight hit9 and drove in the winning run with a suicide squeeze bunt in the seventh inning to lead New York over the Astros. It was Seaver's llih victory. The Mets. scored the winning run in the seventh on a single by Wayne Garrett, a walk to Bud Harrelson, a double steal and Seaver's bunt with two strikes. Cincinnati beat Montreal behind the six-hit pitching of Jack Blllingham but an injury to their All-Star shortstop Dave Coneepcion put a damper on the victory.

In Sunday's final round, Littler was in the threesome with the other top contenders- Lee Trevino and Bruce Crampton. Throughout the day, Trevino continued a spirited banter which amused the ' galleries, and Crampton searched the crowds for cameras and other small distractions. Several times Crampton, the pro golf tour's top money winner, headed for a youngster and admonished him for disobeying the rule which prohibits spectators from using cameras. Littler strolled quietly from hole to hole—sometimes sharing a joke with his caddy. At the third hole, when Trevino drove into the rough behind a tree and had to swing left- handed to approach the green, Littler holed a 15-footer for a birdie. Trevino, the tournament's defending champion, followed with a bogey, and Littler had the lead. Littler birdied the seventh hole. Trevino's chip shot was far short of the hole and he finished one-stroke over par. Littler's two-stroke lead over Crampton looked solid until the 17th hole, when Crampton made a beautiful chip shot from the rough to the left of the cup and the ball broke clean into the hole for a birdie. Crampton Not Bitter Littler hit ''a terrible drive" on the final hole, while Crampton's second shot on the par-4 hole left him 15 feet from the pin. Crampton two-putted, but Littler had to sink an 8-foot putt and avoid a sudden death playoff.
