Cards split twi-nighter By PAUL LEBAR ST. LOUIS (AP) - Left- hander Al Downing has had trouble finishing what he's started this season, but not against the St. Louis Cardinals. The 31-year-old- Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher proved to be one of the Cardinals' bigger hexes again Friday night by stopping them on four hits In a 2-1 Dodgers triumph. Downing's near - flawless complete game,, his sixth in 25 starts, salvaged a split for the Dodgers after the Cards took the opener -of a doubleheader 54. "Actually I've had only three good games against them," said Downing, who owns a 5-0 record over the Cards since coming over to Los Angeles from the American League last season. This season, however, Downing has been well nigh perfect against them, shutting them out 1-0 on nine hits in Los Angeles eight nights earlier. "I don't know what it is that guy's got that's so speci-al,' 1 mused Cards Manager Red Schoendienst, "but at least we broke through and scored against him tonight." The seasoned Downing, mixing curves and sliders with fast balls, faltered only hi the first inning by walking Lou Brock and falling behind Ted Sizemore, who rapped a run-scoring double. Los Angeles quickly overcame the 1-0 Cards advantage the next half inning, however, when Bobby Valentine walked and Bill Russell followed with a ringing triple off the leftfield wall. Cards pitcher Al Santorini, 6-9, then hit Steve Yeager with a pitch and Downing punched a single into right field for the winning run. Afterward the Cards got only singles off the bats of Sizemore and Dwain Anderson in the second, third and fourth innings. Downing set down the final 16 in a row. "The Cards, it seems, are always looking for the fast ball," reflected Downing, 8-6. "I just had to stay aware of that and make them hit my pitch." In the opener, Rick Wise, 13-14, of the Cards bettered the Dodgers' Don Sutton, 14-9, in a battle of right-handers. Joe Torre's two-run single and Ted Simmons' double produced all the runs the Cards needed during a three- run third. Los Angeles' only TIT/. i • i run came on Bill Buckner's WIHS third triple and Valentine's sacrifice fly the same inning.

The Kansas City righthander lived to tell about it, though, after Yastr- zemski's line drive bounced off his face during the Boston Red Sox' 1-0 triumph. "He was very fortunate, he the jaw instead of flush," said the jaw instead of flush," sa'd Kansas City Manager Bob Lemon. He managed to leave the game under his own power. What followed was also painful for Drago. He wound up losing the game as Yastrzemski eventually scored on Rico Petrocelli's single. Boston's victory kept things Interesting in the zany American League East baseball race. The fourth-place Red Sox stayed within two gamos of first-place Baltimore after the Orioles beat the California Angels 3-2. The New York Yankees stopped the Chicago White Sox 4-0 and moved into a second-place tie with Detroit after the Tigers were beaten 4-1 by the Oakland A's. Both New York and Detroit are 1-J& games behind the Orioles. Elsewhere, the Minnesota Twins beat the Cleveland In- dians 5-4 and the Milwaukee Brewers blanked the Texas Rangers 3-0. Dave McNally pitched a three-hitter and helped his cause with a bunt single to lead Baltimore over California. McNally's bunt off loser Clyde Wright loaded the bases and the Orioles then scored two runs on a sacrifice fly by Bobby Grich and Tommy Davis' bouncer. Andy Etchebnrren's run-scoring single in the Baltimore eighth provided the eventual winning run. Mel Stottlemyre blanked heavy-hitting Chicago on four hits and Charley Spikes, playing his first big league game, delivered singles in two New York rallies to pace the Yankee triumph. Slump-saddled Joe Rudi hit a three-ran homer in the third inning and Ken Holtzman notched his first victory in a month as Oakland beat Detroit and increased its American League Weot margin to 2'^ games over ;he White Sox. Rod Carew stole home with two out in the last of the lOili inning to give Minnesota its victory over Cleveland and Jim Colborn fired a three- hitter for Milwaukee.

"Well, he's a man and I'm a woman," quipped the pretty Australian swimmer in her down-under accent.

Shirley, who earlier had anchored the U.S. team to a gold medal in the 400 freestyle and won a silver in the 100 freestyle, wound up her Olympic effort by winning a silver— and losing her world record to Miss Gould, who won in 2:'03.56. Keena, who still has the 800 freestyle with Shane on Sunday, said after winning her first medal of the games: "I try my hardest to keep my mind on a race, but it's kind of hard after getting third place." Reds win in 12th By HERSCHEL NISSENSON AP Sports Writer Philadelphit's Ken Reynolds and Atlanta's Jimmy Freeman each posted his first victory of the National League baseball season Fiday night. The only 'difference is that Reynolds has been around since the start while Freeman is just up from the minors. Reynolds, who dropped his first 12 decisions, scattered seven hits in pitching the Phillies to an 11-1 triumph in the first game of a twi-night doubleheader. Then Freeman, a 21-year- old, 6-foot-4, 180-pound left- hander, went out and the Braves supplied him with 11 runs for an 11-5 victory in the nightcap, although the youngster surrendered eight •and 11 walks. Elsewhere, Cincinnati edged Montreal 1-0 in 12 innings, Houston blanked the New York Mets 8-0, Pittsburgh outslugged San Francisco 106, the Chicago Cubs buried San Diego 14-3 and St. Louis and Los Angeles split a doubleheader, the Cardinals taking the opener 5-1 and the Dodgers winning the nightcap 2-1.

(AP Wirephoto via Cable from Munich) Court extends order against Bobby Hull CHICAGO (AP) — A federal judge has extended for 10 days a temporary restraining order barring Bobby Hull, former start of the Chicago Black Hawks, from publicizing his new club, the Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Association. Judge Philip W. Tone extended Friday a previouj order issued Aug. 24 in U.S. District Court prohibiting Hull from attending the Jets' training camp or "representing himself as anything other than a Chicago Black Hawk player" until Sept. 14. The extension of ihe restraining order regarding attendance at the Jets' camp is academic since the WHAT has set an Oct. 1 date for f o r m e r National Hockey League players to report to teams of the new league. On Sept. 15, Judge William J. Lynch of U.S. Distrc: Court will rule on whether a previous Black Hawk suit against Hull and a counter suit against the Black Hawks and the NHL by Hull should be tried in federal or state court. The suits center on 'he legality of Hull's departure from the Black Hawks to the Jets while still under contract to the Hawks. Hull signed a contract with the Jets on Jure 27 for a reported $2 million.

Indianapolis 4, Aurora Home Savinss 1 West Chicago 1, Murphysboro- Carbondale 0. 14 innings. By WILL GRIMSLEY MUNICH (AP) — Charges of "arrogance" and "Gestopo tactics" flew back and forth Saturday in a breakout of tensions between the Americans and their West German hosts at the Olympic games. Terming the behavior of some Yanks "arrogant," a highly placed official of the German Organizing Committee said: "We are somewhat unhappy over various actions ;>nd reactions of our American friends." Some U.S. newsmen, running into restrictions at the Olympic village, have termed the German security force "the Orange Gestapo." The security men wear orange jackets. Clifford Buck, president of the U.S. Olympic Committee, admitted that he had received a letter of complaint from Willi Daume, president of the organizing 'committee, and that he had replied with an apology. The exchange involved a recent criticism by Bill Bowerman, the U.S. head track and field coach, on the lack of efficiency of the organizing committee. For one thing, Bowerman said his team didn't have sufficient transport. "I came here thinking the Germans were very efficient," Bowerman said. "They haven't done anything they said they would do." West Germans were upset, the organizing committee spokesman said, by the attempt of the American to pass the buck to the Germans when their two top sprinters, Eddie Hart and Ray Robinson, failed to report in time for quarterfinal heats in the 100-meter race. They were both disqualified and the race was won Friday by Valery Borzov, a Russian. The Americans called a press conference at the Village, and sharply criticized the Germans for bad communications. "That's one way out of it," a German spokesman said. "Why weren't all the other countries late?" Vans host Molitors EAST ALTON —The East Alton Vans will host Molitor Motors of Collinsville in their first playoff game Sunday of the Illinois Inter City Baseball League, starting at 2:30 p.m. Borzov: Yanks were 'running in place' By BOB JOHNSON MUNICH (AP) - Valery Borzov says American sprinters are standing still. Two of them, Hey Robinson and Eddie Hart weren't even doing that— to their chagrin. And U.S. waterbug Rick DeMont certainly wasn't—to his delight. Borzov, a 25-year-old Russian nicknamed the' "White Flash," took another nickname Friday—the one of "world's fastest human." He won the gold medal in the 100-meter dash with a time of 10.14 seconds, beating by about a yard a fast-closing Robert Taylor of Houston, and thereby ending a thorough domination of the event by the United States. Taylor had been the lone hope for a gold by the United States, wiuch had won the 100 seven times in the last eight Olympics. Robinson and Hart had been expected to give the Russian speedster as much of a challenge as Taylor did—but they never got the chance. All they got was a seat in the stands to watch Borzov's victory. Their sprint coach, Stan Wright, had told them when to report for their qualifying heats Thiu-sday—only Wright was wrong by several horn's. By the time they arrived, their heats had been run and they were out of it for good. Taylor just did manage to get into his heat and qualify, despite havJng to bypass any warming up. DeMont warmed up at just the right time—in the final 100 meters of his 400-meter freestyle swimming race. After the first 100 he was eighth and last. But steadily he began his charge and, by the final 100, he was second only to Brad Cooper of Australia. Then he turned it on, passing the Aussie in the final strokes to DOWNING'S FISHING LAKES 3V4 Miles North on l^'osterburg Hoad TWO 7-Acre (Stocked With Carp) LAKES: 4-Acre (Stocked With Channel Cat) Bait Availaule: Carp, Hed Wigiilera win in an Olympic record 4:00.26—a scant one-hundredth of a second ahead of Cooper. "I've been swimming come- from-behind style ever since I began," the 16-year-old schoolboy from San Rafael, Calif., explained. Steve Center o/ Lakewood, Calif., hung on to beat teammate Tom McBreen of San Mateo, Calif., for the bronze. Borzov, the first Russian ever to win an .Olympic foot race under 5,000 meters, called his triumph "first of all a victory for my country." He added that Americans "are in something of a stagnation — running in place." East Gennans Ruth Fuchs and Jacquelin Todten were 1-2 in the women's javelin— Fuchs with an Olympic-record toss of 209 feet 7 inches—but Kathy Schmidt of Long Beach, Calif., took the bronze with 196-8 It made her the first American girl to get a javelin medal since Babe Didrikson did it in 1932. Australia's Shane Gould bagged her third gold of the Games with a world-record 2:03.56 in the women's 200- , meter freestyle. "I reckon I'm fit enough to do another good one," the 15- year-old champ said, looking forward to Sunday's 800-meter freestyle after she had be'aten out silver medalist Shirley Babashoff of Fountain Valley, Calif. , and Kenna Rothhammer of Santa Clara, Calif. Americans got shut out, though, in the women's 100- meter butterfly as Japan's Mayunii Aoki splashed to a world-record 1:03.34 victory ahead of Roswitha Beier of East Germany and Andrea Gyarmati of Hungary. The U.S. gu-ls, Deena Deardruff of Cincinnati, Dana Shrader of Fullerton, Calif., and Ellie Daniel of Elkins Park, Pa., were fourth, fifth and sixth, just an arm's length out of medal contention. The American basketball team, so severely tested Wednesday by Brazil, had a laugher Friday, demolishing Egypt 96-31 for its 60th Olympic triumph without a loss since the game was introduced in 1936. Mike Bantom of St. Joseph's, Pa., led the assault with 17 points as the U.S. team moved within a game of clinching a semifinal playoff berth. In boxing, 20-year-old lightweight James Bu.sceme of Beaumont, Tex., got off the canvas to score a surprisingly unanimous victory over Prai- Anan N'ichit of Thailand, giving the United States its llth win in 12 bouts. In water polo, the U.S. squad failed for the first time to gain a victory, helping West Germany to a 4-4 tie when James Ferguson of Santa Clara, Calif., accidentally tipped in the Germans' first goal. They still had a 4-1 lead in the .sex-omi half but saw it vanish when Peter Teicher tied it just 50 seconds from the end. wrecking the Yanks' attempt at ball-control defense.
