Al Gallagher won it for Phoenix with a two-out single in the ninth. Gallagher didn't hurt his bid for a spot on the club with two singles and a double in four official trips to the plate. "I broke my glasses last year and I just got them fixed yesterday," said Gallagher. "It's amazing how much better you play when you can see." ALSO WIELDING a big bat for Phoenix was Bobby Taylor, the 1968 Texas League bat champ who's expected to open in left field for the Giants. Bobby-T smacked a single, double and home run, scored two runs and knocked in two. "I worked out with a weighted bat all winter," said Taylor, "and I think it's made me quicker." Tito Fuentes checked into camp and got in a five-inning tour of duty at shortstop. He doubled home a run as Phoenix scored three times in the sixth. John Stephenson displayed a big bat once again from the cleanup spot, smacking a two-run double in a four-run Phoenix first. EXHIBITION EXTRAS — Rvan said he hasn't heard further from Baltimore regarding a trade - out or some other arrangement to acquire leftv reliever Larrv Miller. The Giant's GM. announced the Municipal Stadium ticket office would be open from 9 a.m. to S P.m. today and tomorrow to handle orders for the opener next Friday night against Vancouver. He also revealed a special bonus ticket offer under which a packet of nine $1.50 tickets may be obtained for $10 If purchased before opening day.

Walk, his father, and his garrulous attorney-agent, Bob Wolff of Boston, will fly to Phoenix today to see how far up in the six figure bracket the Suns are willing to shine. "IT WILL TAKE si* figures - six substantial figures to get Neal's name on a three-year contract," Wolff said yesterday in Miami Beach, Fla. "I'm going to listen to him (Wolff) because he knows a lot more about contract negotiations than I do," Walk said. Regardless of their decision on Walk, the Suns will have six of the first 44 selections in this year's NBA college draft — the second, 24th, 31st, 33rd, 39th and 44th. Three of those were acquired through trades — the 24th from Boston (second- round pick), 33rd from Detroit (third-round pick) and 39th from Atlanta (third- round pick). PHOENIX WOULD have been in position to make the league's 16th selection, but the Suns had to deal their second-round choice to Chicago to pry coach Johnny Kerr out of a contract with the Bulls. . Only the first round is scheduled during Monday's 14-city telephone hookup. The remaining rounds are set for early May in New York. TEMPE — Arizona State cannonaded 21 hits shutting out Wisconsin, 18-0, yesterday behind the throttling pitching of Larry Gura, now 8-0. Gura set the Badgers down with a sparse six hits and never was pressured as the Devils jumped to a 2-0 first inning lead and then kept pumping, including a nine-run burst in the fifth.
