Barr, Cleveland Softha11 Tiant wins 5th in swipe spotlight By HERSCHEL NISSENSON AP Sports Writer National League batters have had their ups and downs lately with San Francsico's Jim Barr ... up they come and down they go. The 24-year-old right- hander, who pitched a two- hitter against Pittsburgh last week for his first major league shutout and retired the last 21 batters, mowed down the first 20 St. Louis hitters Tuesday night before Bernie Carbo broke the spell with a clean double and finished with a three-hit 3-0 victory over the Cardinals. The string of 41 consecutive outs broke- the major league baseball mark of 38 set by Pittsburgh's Harvey Haddix iJi 1959, 36 of those coming in his memorable 12 perfect innings against, the Milwaukee Braves Other National League scores: New York Mets 3, Cincinnati. 0; Houston 2, Philadelphia 1; Chicago Cubs 2, Los Angeles 1; Pittsburgh 5, San Diego 3; Montreal 4, Atlanta 3. Barr, who made 24 relief appearances before getting a start this season, "has earned full-lime status as a starter," according to Giants Manager Charlie Fox. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound University of vSouthern California grad made only 94 pitches in blanking St. Louis. Reggie Cleveland of the Cards matched Barr's scoreless hurling until the ninth when Dave Kingman drove in all three runs with a bases-loaded double following an error by third baseman Dwain Anderson, a hit batsman, a sacrifice and an intentional walk to Dave Jtader. Houston made it two in a row under Leo Durocher's leadership when Lee May greeted Philadelphia reliever Mac Scarce with a leadoff home run in the ninth inning. Cesar Cedeno homered in the sixth for Houston's first run and Oscar Gamble tied it in the seventh with a pinch single. The Astros picked up a game on Cincinnati, which played dead against New York's Jim McAndrew and Tug McGraw, and trail the Reds by 7% games in the NL West. Loser Jack Billingham had his scoreless streak ended at 24 innings when Ken Boswell and Ed Kranepool homered for the Mets in the fourth. Tommie Agee connected in the eighth. McAndrew retired Joe Morgan and Bobby Tolan on infield pops and struck out Johnny Bench after Pete Rose opened the sixth with a triple. But he needed last-out help from McGraw, who retired pinch hitter Hal McRae on a fly to shallow left with the bases loaded. Pittsburgh's Willie Slarsell boosted his major league- leading RBI total to 101 with his 31st home run and T sacrifice fly, which drove in the go-ahead run in the third inning. Billy Williams accounted for both Chicago runs with :\ sixth-inning double and Milt, Pappas scattered eight hits, including Willie Davis' third- inning homer, as the Cu'is edged the Dodgers. Ken Singleton hit two solo homers in Montreal's triumph over Atlanta.

Meet Mr. Excitement of 1972—Luis Tiant. "I think that he's as good as any right-hander in the American League right now," said Chicago Manager Chuck Tanner after Tiant pitched a 3-0 beauty against his White Sox Tuesday night. Tiant, 9-4, recorded his third stmisiht shutout and fifth straight victory with a five-hitter—an impressive performance reminiscent of Santiago's spectacular finish in '67 when he won eight gaities in a row. All five of Tiant's last starts have been complete games. He's allowed just five earned inns, 21 hits and six walks while striking out 37 battens in that time. Tiant's latest triumph kept the Red Sox three games behind the leaders in the tingling American League East race. The Baltimore Orioles trounced the Minnesota Twins 9-4 and pulled into a first- place tie with Detroit after the Tigers lost 3-1 to the California Angels. The American League West race was no less uncertain after Tuesday night's action. Chicago's loss dropped Ihc White Sox into second place and the O.ikland A's took over the top spot by a half-game after berting the Cleveland Indians 1-fl. The New York Yankees beat the Texas Rangers 7-fi in 11 innings in the first game of a dnubleheader before losing the second, 7-4. and the Kansas City Royals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers G-4 in other American League action. Tiant was tough Tuesday night after his teammates gave him a two-run working margin in the first inning. Reggie Smith's double drove in one run and Carlton Fisk knocked in another with a single. Bobby Grich drove in four runs with a grand slam homer and triple as Baltimore beat Minnesota despite Harmon Killebrew's milestone home run. Killebrew hit No. 536 of hi:-, career, tying him with Mickey Mantle for fourth place on the all-time list. Killebrew admitted that his first-inning home run gave him initial satisfaction, hut the Twins' eighth straight loss took most of it away. "My hit helped us take a lead and I thought that v/e were finally going to get going,' 1 said Killebrew. "Maybe the worm was going to turn, but it wasn't going to 1)0." Rudy May fired a four- hitter and Leo Cardenas cann- through with a two-run single in the eighth to lead California over Detroit. Bi'l Freehan got three of the hits off May, including a home run in the ninth. Bert Campaneris drove in the only run of the game with a fifth-inning single and lim "Catfish" Hunter and Darol.l Knowlcs combined on a three hitler to pace Oakland's triumph. The Yankees won their first game as Johnny Callison drove in the winning run with an llth-inning single. Ted Ford's tie-breaking homer touched off a four-run uprising in the seventh inni':g to give Texas the second game. Kansas City pounded 10 singles in the second and third innings, including two each by Carl Taylor, Lou Piniella ami Bobby Knoop, for six runs en route to its victory over Milwaukee. Sport Shorts Marco Castaneda led the jockeys in the 1972 Gulf- stream Park meeting with 40 victories, one more than Jacinto Vasquez. Boating classes coming up It's the time of year to start boating classes In preparation for next year's boating season. And who knows, maybe some boating Instruction now would make the "warden" a Httlc more receptive to some boating type Rifts at Christmas. The United States Power Squadron will give a free 10-class instruction course starting Monday. (Sept. 11) at 7:30 p.m. in the St. Louis County Library at. Lindberg and Clayton Ho.ids. That's a pretty healthy drive for Telegraph area residents, but if you organize a car pool it. wouldn't be bad. If you are wondering why boating classes are held this time of year, it's a simple answer: people are too darn busy all summer to get involved wllh such things. But if you think you lacked knowledge this summer on the subject of boating now is the time to insure that it won't happen again next year. The free classes will run for 10 consecutive Mondays and men, women and teenagers are invited to attend. You don't have to be a boat, owner to participate. I took the course last year along with several others from Alton and I can guarantee that if you are a self taught boater you will learn something that you haven't learned through trial and error. And who knows, you might learn something that could save somebody's life on the water, maybe your own. The United States Power Squadron is the largest boating educational organization in the world. The USPS is a non-profit, civilian body (non military) and is dedicated to the promotion of safe boating in this country. To further aid prospective and active boating enthusiasts USPS has instituted a toll-free telephone csrvice which provides information on more than 400 courses held bianmially throughout the country. Information on the USPS courses in your area is available by calling 800-243-6000.
