In the six weeks since then, he's become a no-hit pitcher and the American League's newest itatr. the 28-yew old, Moots,- 230- pound right-hander pitched the first no-hitter in the Rangers' history and the fourth of the AL season Monday night when he overpowered the Oakland A's, 6-0, with a 13-strikeout perfor- Hurls No-Hitter, Shutout mance. The Rangers had acquired Mm (torn the St. Louis CMttlls on June 6 and he immediately developed into one of the AL 's most effective pitchers with one-hit, two-hit, four-hit and five-hit performances in his four other victories tor Texas. Bibby gave up six walks but allowed only two runners to reach second and one to advance to third. He was helped by excellent defensive plays by shortstop Jim Blregosi, center fielder Vic Harris and defensive shortstop replace' menl Pete Macktnto. Sieve Busby of the Kansas City Royals pitched the first no- hitter of the AL season on April 2? and Nolan Ryan of the California Angels pitched no- hitters on May 15 and July 15.

Dick McAuliffe, Duke Sims and Jim Northrup homered for the Tigers and Mickey Lolieh won his 16th game with the nintfviiming relief help of John Killer, who earned his 22nd save. The Red Sox dealt relief ace Sparky Lyle of the Yankees his sixth loss when Rick Miller's ninuVkwing single drove in Rico Ptetrocelli. Petrocelli, who hit a two-run homer earlier in the game, led off (he ninth with a single, moved to second on a wild pitch by Lyle and went to third on an infield out.

Carlton, the National League's Cy Young award winner last year when he won 27 and lost 10 for the Philadelphia Phillies, has been struggling continually ithis season in an effort to duplicate his performance of last year, but his long wait may be over. Carlton turned in what Manager Danny Ozark termed "his best pitched game of the year" Monday night when he stopped the Pittsburgh Pirates on six hits while pitching the Phillies to a 1-0 triumph.

"I had my breaking ball working and my control was good. My slider was going down hard. I've been itrying to find the groove all year and I've finally got it." The other Steve—Rogers—has only been around since mid- July but is fast becoming the most impressive young pitcher in the National League. Rogers, only 23, turned in his second straight shutout and third stellar performance in a row Monday night when he tamed the New York Mets on seven hits while pitching the Montreal Expos to a 1-0 victory in the first game of a doubleheader. The Expos also won the nightcap, 5-2, in 10 innings. Rogers, who had a one-hitter against the Philadelphia Phillies in his last start and allowed only two runs in eight innings in his only other outing, is a 6- foot-2, 177-poundr with a rising fastball that Mets' baiters had trouble meeting solidly. In the only other scheduled NL games, Los Angeles beat San Francisco, 5-2, Atlanta whipped Houston, 7-3, and Chicago topped St. Louis, 3-1. Jim Bibby tossed a no-hitter as Texas bianked Oakland, 6-0, Boston edged New York, 4-3, Detroit beat Baltimore, 4-3, and Chicago whipped Minnesota, 91, in the only American League action. Bob Boone singled home the game's only run in the Phillies' triumph over the Pirates. Boone's hit came in the fourth inning and scored Greg Luzin- 9ki, who had singled and moved to second on a walk to Del Unser. Ken Singleton, an ex-Met, delivered the winning hit for the Expos in (the ninth inning of the opener when he doubled home Ron Hunt, who had opened the inning with a single and moved to second on a sacrifice. In the nightcap, John Boccabella drilled a three-run double in the 10th to give the Expos a sweep of the twinbill. Mike Marshall, who worked four innings in irelief, got credit for his 10'h victory. Dave Lopes and Joe Ferguson each homered for the |Ch o Dodgers in their triumph overj c 0 the Giants. Lopes also drove in another run with a single as he supported the four-hit pitching of Claude Osteen. Osteen, 12-5, lost his shutout in the fourth when Gary Matthews hit a two- run homer. Darrell Evans drove in three!

The change was announced Monday by John Allyn, the Sox owner, who added he planned to assume the duties of chief executive officer and take a more active role in running the last week in a feud with Hemond and Manager Chuck Tanner.

By ED SAINSBURY UPI Sports Writer CHICAGO (UPI) - Normally a two-game winning streak is no cause for untoward rejoicing in a baseball clubhouse. But when it's the first two- game winning streak since June 29, more than a month in which a team has lost 19 of Rich Glover Impressive In Workout By JOE CARNKELLI UPI Sports Writer Rich Glover has begun to prove the skeptics wrong. Glover, who carried just about every honor available to linemen as a star middle guard for the University of Nebraska last season, had his first taste of a pro football training camp Monday when he- began working out with the New York Giants. And the Giants liked what they saw. Despite his exicellent college crteictentiafe -Jhe won both the Cortland Trophy and the Lorn bardi Trophy as the nation's outstanding iineman — Glover, at 6-focit-l and 242 pounds, was considered too small to play the line in the pros and not agile enough to play linebacker. But after one workout, Coach Alex Webster was ready to commit Glover, a 9acond -round di - :afit pick but the first made by Che Giants, to action against the San Diego Changers in their pre-season opener Saturday night. "We'll probably me him Saturday night against the Chargers," Webster said. "He impressed me out there today. He looked very strong and I'm sure we'll be able to get him out of some of the habits he's in now." "The Giants' defense with a middle guard is just right for me," Glover said. "Sure, I have a tough job in front of me trying to beat out John MefldenhaM. He has experience over me, but I feel that just as soon as I get everything down, I'll have a good chance." Elsewhere in the training camps, San Diego Coach Harland Svare said he may hold veteran quarterback John Unit as, obtained from Baltimore in the off-season, out of pre-season activity. "I want him there in September," said Svare. Unitas lias been complaining about knee problems. Defensive end Elvin Bethea, one of the few established stars on the Houston roster, signed a three-year conrtact with the Oilers. Bethea had become disgruntled and asked to be traded in the off-season but apparently has been pacified. 25 games, it could bring forth a few smiles and some elevated spirits. . That was the appearance of the Chicago Cubs dressing room Monday after a 3-1 win over the pace - setting St. Louis Cardinals. "It was a big victory for us," Manager Whitey Lockman said. "We had lost the first two games to the Cardinals and we were in^ danger of being swept and being bVz behind them. So we bowed our necks and the boys played just great to come from behind and beat them the second game Sunday. "Then we beat a tough pitcher like (Bob) Gibson and now we are Vk behind instead of 5%. Had Some Problems "We've had our problems the last three weeks," he added. "Problems coordinating good hitting and good pitching. But St. Louis had a slump earlier and Pittsburgh also and then they began to come around when our decline began. We feel now that with two victories over the Cardinals back-to - back, we're psychologically in good position and have a good shot at winning the division." The Cubs rapped Gibson, whom Lockman called "one of the premier pitchers in the history of the game," for nine hits and bunched four singles in the first inning for all of the runs. "Sometimes he does give up runs early," Lockman said. "But the farther he goes, the tougher he gets _nd the sharper he gets." Gibson, losing his 10th in 21 decisions, had a three-game winning streak broken and the result was decided early. Rick Monday singled, Jose Cardenal walked and Billy Williams singled to drive in Monday. Cardenal scored and Williams advanced on Jim Hickman's infield out and Glenn Beckert singled to score Williams. Steals 600th Base Lou Brock provided the only bright spot for the Cardinals by stealing the 600th base of his career. Brock walked to open the game, made the steal to gain second and scored St. Louis' only run on a single by Tim McCarver. Rick Reuschel gave the Cards six hits in 7 2-3 innings before giving away to Dave LaRoche, who finished for his fourth save and Lockman said he was "delighted Reuschel pitched a strong game." "My slider is coming and I can throw it wl'.h confidence and keep it down," Reuschel said. "I made a few bad pitches and when I got it up they got hits. But I got my confidence back and I can throw the slider where I want it." It was only two straight for the Cubs, but the players thought they were two big ones. Total 32 3 Two outs scored.
