Off the early-season returns, they kept the right man. Oliva smashed his second home run in as many games to help the Twins to their second straight victory, 3-2, over the Texas Rangers Wednesday night. Killebrew, unfortunately, struck out four times in his opening day debut for Kansas City against California's Nolan Ryan and then was O-for-4 with two more strikeouts in the Royals' 7-6 win over the Angels Wednesday night "Some years I start off quick Some years I start off slow," said the 33-year old Oliva. who underwent his fifth knee operation during the off-season "Right now. I am seeing the ball real good, which is important, and I am swinging the bat good. When I have my swing going like this, I try to make sure I take a good rip at the ball." After two games. Oliva is 4- for-7 with two home runs and five RBIs. "Tony is not a fast starter or a slow starter," said Twins Manager Frank Quilici. "He just hits all the time. You put him out there in December and he would hit the ball." In addition to Oliva's fourth- inning homer, the Twins scored in the second on a walk to Bobby Darwin, a single by Oliva and a sacrifice fly by Eric Soderholm and again in the sixth when Soderholm singled, stole second, moved to third on a throwing error by catcher Jim Sundberg and came home on pitcher Jim Bibby's wild throw on Steve Braun's grounder. It was up to reliever Tom Burgmeier to save the game after Texas scored twice off winner Joe Decker in the sixth. Burgmeier quelled a bases- loaded rally in the seventh by striking out Tom Grieve and checked Texas the rest of the way. Elsewhere in the American I.eague Milwaukee topped Boston 7-4, Chicago tripped Oakland 7-5 and Kansas City edged Cougars Host Wyoming In WAC Baseball Series Overall, Wyoming's baseball team has done much better than the BYU squad. The Cowboys are 12-10 to the Courgars 1 8-13 record. But a closer look shows BYU with the advantage in recent games. The Cougars have scored 46 runs in winning four straight while the Pokes have lost three of the last four. The two Western Athletic Conference rivals square off in Provo this weekend. A doubleheader is scheduled for 1 p.m. Friday and a single game at noon on Saturday. BYU won twice at home last weekend to lead the WAC's northern division while Wyoming lost two of three at home to Colorado State. Those games were scheduled for Fort Collins but were switched due to a heavy snowfall on the Colorado side of the border. On Tuesday, Wyoming lost a 7-6 game at Colorado Mines as Coach Jim Jones used a lot of reserves. On Wednesday, BYU dumped Southern Utah State twice, 12-9 and 16-4. The Cougars are expected to go with Rob Millsop, Dave Nelson and, probably, Jack Morris. Wyoming will counter with three rightlianders of their own, Skip Person, Rich Koch and Pat Green. Two lefthanders, Jerry Grr and Mike Lusardi, will join Jack Bumgardner in the bullpen. Shortstop Charlie Angelini was hit in the mouth by a ground ball in Sunday's loss to CSU. Nine stitches were required to mend the cut but he is expected to start against the Cougars. The rest of Wyoming's infield will have Kirk Colbert behind the plate, Jim Carra at first. Bob Scherger at second and Denny Dunivent at third. The outfield has Joe Ewing in left, Bill Ewing in center and Mike Mading in right. Bill Ewing is batting over .400 and designated hitter Tim Ridgley is hovering around the 500 mark. Other WAC games this weekend are CSU at Utah, Arizona State at Texas-El Paso and Arizona at New Mexico. Major League Standings By United IVcss Intfrnallonal National league East w. I. pet. g.b.

In the National League it was Cincinnati 4 Los Angeles 3, St. Louis 4 Montreal 0 and Houston 14 Atlanta 2. Brewers 7, Red Sox 4 George Scott and Robin Yount drove in two runs apiece as Milwaukee beat Boston for its first win. Scott hit a bases loaded two-out single in the third and Yount singled home on run in the fourth and accounted for another in the sixth with a sacrifice fly. Pete Broberg, acquired from Texas in the off-season, went 6 1-3 innings and gave up three runs on four hits to gain the victory. White Sox 7, A's 5 Pinch hitter Pat Kelly's two- out two-run triple plus a run- scoring double by Carlos May in the ninth inning enabled Chicago to erase a 5-4 deficit and beat Oakland for its first victory. Jim Kaat went the distance for the White Sox after being rocked for a grand slam homer by Gene Tenacc in the third. Royals 7, Angels 6 Hal McRae cracked a homer, a double and two singles to drive home three runs—including the game-winner in the top of the ninth—and Kansas City spoiled Chuck Dobson's comeback effort for California. Amos Otis also had a single, a two-run homer and three runs scored for the Royals. Lindy McDaniel got the win after hurling the final five innings. Cartwright Goes to Dons SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) Seven-foot high school basketball star Bill Cartwright made it official Wednesday that he is headed for the University of San Francisco. He also announced he might bring another of the nation's most touted stars with him. Cartwright, who attended Elk Grove High School in Sacramento, Calif., announced at a news conference that, "I am hopeful that a friend of mine from recent all-star games, namely James Hardy, Jordan High of Long Beach, will sign a letter of intent in the future." Cartwright and the 6-foot- 9 Hardy led the California High School Stars to wins against high school stars from the rest of the nation in two games earlier this year. Utah signs fi arnes Named Rookie of Year GARTH HALL Garth Hall Added to BYU Staff Garth Hall, a native Utahn who has been serving as offensive coordinator at Wake Forest, has been added to Brigham Young University's football staff. The 29-year-old former Utah State player replaces J. D. Helm, coach of the Cougar running backs, who has accepted a position with the Kansas City Chiefs. Hall went to Wake Forest in 1973 when Chuck Mills was named head coach at the North Carolina school. He was coach of the quarterbacks and receivers his first year there, and assumed the duties as offensive coordinator for the 1974 season. A native of Salt Lake City, Hall attended Highland High, where he lettered in three sports. He enrolled at Utah State in 1964, and for three seasons was a flanker on the Aggie squad. Prior to graduation from USU in 1968, Hall received the H.B. Hunsaker award for scholarship and athletics. He was also recipient of the Wayne Estes Award, and received a post graduate scholarship from the NCAA. Hall continued his graduate work at Utah State, and was named freshman coach in 1969. The following season he held the title of freshman coordinator, but also worked with the quarterbacks and receivers on the varsity under Coach Mills. Garth and his wife, Sharon, have four children; Ryan, Allyson, 5; Curtis, 19 months; and Scott, two months. Coby Leavitt SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Coach Jerry Pimm announced today Coby Leavitt, an all-state center from Cedar City High School, has signed a letter of intent to attend the University of Utah. The 6-9 1-2 Leavitt was a unanimous all-state selection, was named most valuable player in the state's Class AA, and made several high school All-America teams. Leavitt averaged 23.1 points and 15 rebounds a game during his senior year, as the Redmen won the Utah Class AA championship. He scored more than 1,300 points during his high school career. "We are very happy Coby has decided to attend the University of Utah," said Pimm. "Being a big man we feel he will fit right into our program and develop into a fine player. He will be a tremendous addition to our team." Leavitt will major in pre- rned studies at Utah. Craig Signs With Cougars Steve Craig, all-CIF basketball guard from Beverly Hills High, signed a letter-of-intent to attend Brigham Young University. Craig, a quick 6-3 guard, has some rather impressive credentials. He received all-CIF honors at Beverly Hills High, and was nominated as a candidate for Athlete of the Year honors in Southern California. NEW YORK (UPI) - Marvin Barnes' short road as a basketball player has had as many peaks, valleys and side trips as the hero of any great myth. His odyssey has taken him from two-time All-America status at Providence to the fingerprint file of the local police station on charges of assault; from a $2.2-million contract to a pool hall in November when he jumped the team. Wednesday night, though, Marvin Barnes, an immensely talented if occasionally confused 6-foot-9, 22-year old, found himself on another peak. He hopes the valleys are all behind. Barnes was named the American Basketball Association's Rookie of the Year in voting by sports writers in the league's 10 franchise cities and he celebrated with a passion the award he felt he had earned. "I found out just before the game and I think it got me even more keyed up," Barnes said after reeling off 37 points and pulling down 18 rebounds to pace the Spirits of St. Louis to a 11597 rout of the New York Nets and even their first round playoff series at one game apiece. "I may have been a little disoriented in the beginning of the year. I got knocked pretty good by the press and fans when I walked out on the team in November in the hassle about my contract. I didn't play good in New York, either, and I figured that might hurt my chances of winning the award. But I've been coming on stronger all year and I think I deserved it." Barnes gained the honor by the dimmest margin, 14-13, over Denver's Bobby Jones. Moses Malone, who jumped directly from high school to the starting lineup of the Utah Stars, had a fine season, averaging 14.8 points and 18.8 rebounds, but finished a distant third with the remaining three votes. Barnes produced enviable statistics as well as many oohs and ahhs from spectators. COMPLETE MUFFLER SHOP jf t \ jf v" 1 SUPER TIRE CLEARANCE!
