National League Scores 7-1 Win in All-Star Tilt Slides Past Bag Natiorial Leaguer Cesar Cedeno slides just past the bag at game Tuesday. Bro6ks Robinson put the tag to Cedeno as third and is called out after first being called safe when he umpire Billy Williams made the call. Coach Gene Mauch beat the throw to the base in the third inning of the All-Star (4) is on his knees watching the play. By CHARLIE SMITH UPI Sports Writer KANSAS CITY (UPI) - The story of the 44th All-Star baseball spectacle can be condensed into one word- mismatch. And if you wish to add two more—Bobby Bonds. Johnny Bench and Willie Davis broke the American Leaguers' hearts but Bonds broke their backs. Their three homers jolted the pro-American League crowd of 40,849 and a national television audience estimated at 50 .million Tuesday night. The result was a 7-1 National League romp. "They embarrassed us," Reggie Jackson said in the shamefaced American League clubhouse. "Did you get a load of that Bonds? He's fantastic, absolutely fantastic." The San Francisco centerfield- er, who was not voted to the starting team despite 25 homers, 28 stolen bases, 64 runs batted in and .306 batting (Jalesbufg Register-Mail SPORTS GALESBURG, ILL., WED., JULY 25, 1973 PAGE 33 average, pulverized the American League with his bat and his speed. His two-run homer in the fifth, a blast that carried over the 385-foot sign in left- centerfield in sparkling Royals Stadium, built a 5-1 lead. And his routine single to center that he stretched into a stand-up double in the seventh left the host team dazzled. Lauded by National League Manager Sparky Anderson as 'the finest player in cither league," Bonds said he bore no grudges at not being elected to the starting team, "The fans have the right to pick the team they think will win the game," said Bonds. "They're all great outfielders. Ilrn not disappointed at backing up those kind of guys." National League thunder struck in consecutive innings, turning a 2-1 lead at the end of three innings into an insurmountable 7-1 margin after six. Bench opened the scoring parade with a leadoff homer in the fourth. That was the Cincinnati catcher's third All- Star homer, making him one of five players with that many. Only Stan Musial with six and Ted Williams with four have more. And Bench is only 25. Bonds was inserted into the lineup when the National League took the field in the fourth for Billy Williams. "I got him in as soon as I could," said Sparky Anderson, who finally beat the American League after one All-Star and two < World Series' losses.. t,. Joe Morgan led off thejifth with a double before BilhSingef retired Cesar Cedeno and Joe Torre. That brought up Bonds and his towering shot, Jof all practical purposes, ended the game. Willie Davis made sure in the sixth against Nolan Ryan with another two-run homer While wearing Hank Aaron's 'batting helmet. "I forgot mine," said-Davis, the Los Angeles centerfielder. "I'm going to steal the helmet for a souvenir. I don't think Henry will mind." Rick Wise, who gave up the American League's only run in the second on a run-scoring single by Amos Otis, was the winning pitcher. Bert Blyleven, who was tagged for two runs— but no homers—in the third was the loser. Those runs were produced by a pair of walks and consecutive singles by Cedeno and Aaron. The AL got just five hits off seven NL pitchers. leton Signs Pact With Cougars CHICAGO (UPI) T Pat Staple- ion, assured of around $1 million as playereoach of,the Chicago Cougars for,the next five years, how will try to get some of his former National Hockey League mates <to get on the same gravy train. Stapleton, for nine years defenseman with the Chicago Black Hawks and three times an All Star, Tuesday signed a pact with the rival World Hockey Association Chicago Cougars, receiving an immediate bonus. He can play as long as he wishes and coach the rest of the time, the Cougars said. Announcement of his signing was made by Walter Kaiser, co - owner of the Cougars with his brother, Jotrdon. Kaiser said "the figures are sizeable" in speaking of Stapleton's contract. "The Kaisers are willing to spend some money," Stapleton said, "and I am going to go after some players with it Definitely I'm after -NHL players." Stapleton indicated one of the first players he would contact would be Black Hawk center Stan Mikita, whose, contract has expired and who has been negotiating with the Kaisers. "I'd love to have Stan," Stapleiton said, "and I hope to get him." Kaiser said that "the negotiations with Stan are going very well and hopefully I think we have a good chance of signing him." Stapleton said he had no hard feelings toward the Black Hawks, and added, "If I had any regrets, it would be leaving Billy Reay."

At least, says Fisk, he threw one to Pete Rose in Tuesday night's All-Star game. More than that, the California Angels' 14-game winner shook off the Boston Red Sox receiver twice and was nicked for a home run each time. Carlton Fisk laughed when he A's Manager Williams Is me told about all three incidents. He wasn't upset; he was amused. Nobody gets upset about what happens in All-Star games, which no matter what anybody says, still are only exhibitions. Fisk first ibalked about Bobby Bonds' homer off Singer in the fifth inning. "I wanted him to throw a fast ball to Bonds but he didn't want to do it, so he hung a slider to him and he hit it out," said Fisk. "Same thing with (Johnny) Bench the inning before. I put down one finger for a fast ball, but he shook me off. He wanted to throw a slider, so I put down three fingers and "that 's what he threw." Bench put the ball into the left field seats. He was the first batter Singer faced after taking over for Minnesota's Bert Blyleven. Fisk didn't argue with Singer when he shook him off. "Let him do what he wants," said the big Boston catcher out of Bellow Falls, Vt. "I never caught l»im before. If I was catching him regularly, I might've insisted, but he knows what his best pitches are better than I do." What about the spitter? Fisk smiled at the question, and Bill Lee, his teammate with the Red Sox, listened as Fisk replied. "He really loaded one to Rose there in the fourth and the ball went all the way back to the screen. Rose looked at me and 3 said to him, 'he surprised me more than he did you.' " Fisk, who drew a passed ball on the play because Ron Santo moved from second to third on- it, shook his head recalling the pitch. "He didn't oven tell me it was coming," Fisk said. A newsman had a question for Fisk about Singer's spitter. "What docs his ball do when he loads it like that?" "It sings God Save the Queen," he said.

What did bother the American League manager was the thumb injury Oakland , A , pitcher Jim Hunter received in the second inning of the All Star game on i a one-hopper 01 f the bat of Chicago's Bill Williams. "Of curse I'm concerned about it," the Oakland manage r said. "We just hope it isnt serious." Hunter had been scheduled to start Friday for the A's, who are leading the Western Divi sion. Preliminary X-rays were scheduled today. The mustachioed manager didn't look like a man who had come out of ia hospital bed after an appendectomy only four days earlier. Williams showed a healthy glean in his eyes as hp answered questions after hi_ team's 7-1 embarrassment. "I'm feeling all right," he insisted. "I feel fine." He said he considered the trip "certainly worth it. I saw some fine ball players . .•. was in another All-Star game.

But Rentzel, who has had legal troubles in the past on morals and drug charges, was ordered suspended for the 1973 drill with the Redskins. ''Duane reported in good shape, better than I thought," Allen said. "We had a good workout this morning. We anticipate no problems with Duane, or his agent, Abner Haynes, or anybody.

Thomas will work at halfback, the position played by Larry Brown, the Player of the Year in the National Football Conference last season. Brown is holding out to renegotiate his contract but is expected in camp any day now. Besides Thomas and Brown, the Redskins have Herb Mul- Key, Bob Brunet and rookie Lincoln Minor working at halfback and Charley Harraway, former Canadian star Moses Denson and George Nock at fullback. The 29 - year - old Rentzel, meanwhile, said he thought he could win an appeal of his case.

Charges of possession ofi Atlanta Coach Norm Van "I can only repeat what I have said before," Rentzel said. "I am confident that when the whole story comes out, I will win the appeal. I'll do everything possible to be ready to play next year." Rozelle ordered the suspension after studying the record of a hearing held in the NFL office in New York on June 20. Elsewhere on the pro football scene, veteran defensive back Karl Kassulke of the Minnesota Vikings was injured critically in a motorcycle accident in a Minneapolis suburb. Kassulke suffered a broken right leg, back damage and internal injuries when his motorcycle! collided with a car. i San Diego's John Mackey, for years one of the premier tight Van Brocklin's decree came after placekicker Bill Bell,, released Monday and claimedi Soviets won them all by New England, accused him of "gestapo tactics" in running the Falcons' camp. The Denver Broncos suspended guard Laron Jackson for demanding a salary, "that would put him on a par with a nine-year quarterback." Coach John Ralston sent Jackson home for not playing up to par. MINSK, USSR (UPI) - Long after they forget the score, the Soviets who watched the annual Soviet-American track and field meet will remember two American teen-agers, Mary Decker and Steve Williams. The two delighted the crowds in the two-day competition, which ended Tuesday with the Soviets winning the men's event, 121-U2, and the women's, 95-51, for an over-all 216-163 score. Miss Decker, a 14-year-old from Garden Grove, Calif., her red-ribboned pigtails flying, spurted the last five yards to win the 800 meters on the final day. Williams, 19, from San Diego, Calif., humiliated Valcry Bor- zov, two-time Olympic gold medalist, in the 400-meter relay on opening day. Tuesday he won the 200 meters, which Borzov passed up because of nerve trouble in his leg. It was only the third time the U.S. men have lost in It dual meets. The American women, traditionary weaker than their i Soviet counterparts, have only won once. The Soviet men, with virtually all their top athletes participating, came up with strong performances in the last three events to defeat a weak and tired .U.S. side missing several of its top athletes. The Americans are in the third week of a European tour that has already seen them defeat West Germany and Italy. The U.S. men needed firsts in only the steeplechase, long jump and decathlon to lurn!}'yi|" defeat into victory, but the• , '''"« f,, ' s ,..., I * \i V 1S li , T—2:45. A—40.84!).
