Page 14-THE HERALD, Prove. Utah, Sunday. April 13. 1975 Sutton Gives Initial Win To Los Angeles By United Press International The Los Angeles Dodgers knew they had to win one eventually with a "stopper" like Don Sutton on their pitching staff. Sutton helped the Dodgers get off the skids Friday by constructing a four-hit, 7-0 masterpiece against the Houston Astros and chalking up his 37th career shutout, second only to Bob Gibson among active National League pitchers. It was the first complete game of the year by a Dodger pitcher. Sutton has now won his last 12 decisions, including two in the NL playoffs against Pittsburgh and the lone Dodgers' World Series victory over Oakland. The win was the Dodgers first of this season following three consecutive losses to the Cincinnati Reds, their arch rivals in the NL West. "We could've won any of the three games up there," said Sutton. "You know, there's one of Rego Leads Golfers Past Utah Darrell Rego, charging through the wind and cold, fired a one-under par 71 to go with John Fought's 72 and the two juniors led Brigham Young University to a 25'£-7M> win over Utah Friday in a Western Athletic Conference dual match. Rego's round in the chilly, 40 degree weather on the 6,994- yard Riverside. Country Club Course earned him the medalist honor for the match. Mac Christensen gave Utah its only individual win, shooting a 74 to down BYU's Jim Blair who stumbled to a 77. Christensen teamed with Roger Calvin to beat Blair and Jay Matulich— the only Ute win in three two-man team matches. Giants Down Salt Lake, 4-2 PHOENIX (UPI) -EdHalicki allowed only two runs and his Phoenix teammates scored all the runs he needed on only one hit as the Giants edged Salt Lake City 4-2 Friday night in Pacific Coast League action. Halicki lost his shutout in the seventh when he hit a batter, Mike Miley singled and Halicki's pickoff throw went wild allowing one run to score. Dan Briggs singled in the other run in the same inning. Halicki fanned 10 batters and walked none to register the Giants' first win of the infant season. Phoenix scored unearned runs in the second and third innings and another in the sixth on a wild pitch. Colorado State, Utes Split Tilts SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Colorado State duplicated Utah's 3-2 win in the first game to gain a split Friday in a Western Athletic Conference doubleheader with the host Utes. Utah put up all three of its runs in the first two innings of the opening game, and starter Gary Vincent got some relief help from Ross Rosander in the final two innings to record the win. The Utes got eight hits, including two each from center- fielder Mike Martinez and catcher Jeff Johnson, to win their first WAC game of the year. CSU also went out 3-0 to open the second game. Tom Rosamond hit a single and a double and drove in one run to lead the Ram batters. The Utes put up two runs in the fifth inning, but CSU starter Gary Brown blanked them the rest of the way for the victory. Sun Devils Win EL PASO, Tex. (UPI) - The six-hit pitching of Arizona State's Floyd Bannister carried the Sun Devils to a 9-1 Western Athletic Conference Southern Division baseball victory over Texas-El Paso. Bannister, who picked up his eighth win in nine decisions, struck out 12 batters. The Sun Devils had trouble getting started but exploded in the second inning for six runs, three of them coming off the bat of first baseman Clay Westlake two things you can do— either you worry yourself to death, or you can say, 'Hey, we've got 159 games left, let's play them one at a time.'" The 30-year-old righthander's sterling performance included pjne strikeouts and only one walk. Dodger Manager Walt Alston said that nothing was wrong with his club that a little hitting couldn't solve. "We got pretty good pitching in all those games in Cincinnati except for the last one," he said. "But first of all you've got to get some runs." Bill Buckner took care of that, knocking in two runs with a double and his second home run of the season. Jimmy Wynn, the former Astro, collected two doubles and two RBI, and Steve Garvey singled and scored twice. Padres 5, Reds 2: Dave Winfield doubled home two of San Diego's three first- inning runs and Dan Spillner scattered 10 hits to help the Padres trim Cincinnati. The Padres pounced on Cincinnati starter Fred Norman for four straight hits to open the game and went on to hand the Reds their first loss of the season. Cards 6, Phillies 3: Bake McBride drove in four runs to offset a pair of homers by Philadelphia's Greg Luzinski. McBride, who went 4-for- 5, drove in three of his runs with an inside-the-park homer in the third inning after Lou Brock singled and Ted Sizemore walked. Cubs 2, Expos 1: Rick Monday scored an unearned run from second base on Pete La Cock's fly to right field in the eighth inning for Chicago. Monday beat put a single then reached second safely when Larry Lintz dropped the ball on a force play. La Cock followed with a drive which right fielder Gary Carter caught against the wall. Carter fell down .,and Monday was waved home, beating the relay to the plate. Braves 4, Giants 2: Buzz Capra, who led NL pitchers with a 2.28 earned run average a year ago, pitched a three-itter in his first start of the season and Darrel Evans and Dusty Baker each drove in a pair of runs in leading Atlanta. Bobby Murcer had two of the hits for the Giants. Pirates 4, New York 3: Rich Hebner's run-scoring single to left off reliever Mac Scarce capped a four-run, ninth- inning rally for Pittsburgh. Before Pittsburgh rallied, southpaw Jerry Koosman had held them to seven hits over the first eight innings. HANK AARON collects his first American League hit, a sixth-inning single against Cleveland, as the Milwaukee Brewers opened their home season with a 6-2 victory. A crowd of 48,000 watched Aaron's return to Milwaukee, Visitors Score Upsets In NHL Playoff Action By United Press International It was visitors' night in the National Hockey League playoffs Friday. And with the visitors came the upsets. The New York Islanders upended the New York Rangers, 4-3, in sudden death overtime, Chicago surprised the Boston Bruins, 6-4, and Toronto slipped by the IMS Angeles Kings, 2-1. All three losers were the home team and were favored to win their three-game series and move to the quarter-finals of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Now Toronto will face Philadelphia, last year's Cup winner, Chicago will go against Buffalo, the Islanders will battle Pittsburgh and rounding out the quarterfinals will be Montreal against Vancouver. The Islanders leaped out in front of the Rangers, 3-0, after two periods but Bill Fairbairn scored two goals and Steve Vickers tied the score at 13:41 to send the game into sudden death overtime. Long considered the baby brother of the New York representatives in the NHL, it took J. P. Parise only 11 seconds in overtime to rid the Islanders of that reputation by banging in a pass from Judge Drouin for the win. "The most rewarding goal I ever scored," Parise said excitedly and then explained the Islanders scoring so quickly. "The difference was our natural pride." Black Hawks 6, Bruins 4: Chicago was outshot, 56-19, by Boston, who played in the finals of last year's Stanley Cup playoffs, but survived to down the Bruins in Boston. It was the first time in five attempts the Black Hawks had won a playoff series from the Bruins. Cliff Koroll and J. P. Bordeleau scored two goals each to lead Chicago into the quarter-finals against Buffalo. Maple Leafs 2, Kings 1: Center George Ferguson scored for Toronto in the first period and leftwinger Inge Hammarstrom hit on an unassisted goal in the second period to give Toronto a 2-0 lead. Don Kozak tallied for the Kings with 6:51 to go in the game. The Kings were stymied by the Maple Leafs' rookie goaltender Gord McRae. Whalers 3, Fighting Saints 2: New England's Rick Ley said he was bone tired but anxious to end the marathon when his only shot on goal connected for a overtime win over Minnesota to even their WHA playoff series at one apiece. The defenseman put an end to the three hour, 47- minute game at 6:46 in overtime.

I" C 1C ICC MUFFLER SHOP | 1145 NO. 500 W. ; PROVO - 373-2944 Yanks Open at Home; 'Cattish' Takes Loss By United Press International Once again, Charlie Finley has gone to court in an effort to prevent "Catfish" Hunter from itching for the New York Yankees. As far as the Detroit Tigers are concerned, he needn't have bothered—just yet anyway. Hunter, who won his freedom from Finley this winter and signed with New York for a cool $3 million, made his debut in the Yankees' home opener Friday and, thanks to the home-run bats of Detroit's Willie Horton and Nate Colbert, was found to be quite mortal. Both Horton and Colbert belted long home runs to power the Tigers to a 5-3 victory and even though Finley's latest appeal in San Francisco was still pending, it can be safely assured that Charlie 0. slept well last night —especially after his latest "find," right-hander Mike Norris, had hurled a three-hit shutout as Hunter's replacement in the rotation one night earlier. "We'll keep going until we get a reversal," Finley announced prior to his appeal. "I'm firmly convinced the arbitrator lacked the jurisdiction to declare Hunter a free agent. He went beyond his authority. This case is far from over." Meanwhile, Hunter, who surrendered a two-run homer to Horton in the first inning and a game-winning three-run shot to Colbert in the sixth, was philosophical about the defeat. "I was a little nervous," he said, "and I guess maybe I was pressing. I'll be more relaxed out there now. I won't feel rushed and try to overdo things." One other minor embarrassment to the Yanks in their much- ballyhooed home opener before 26,212, was Bobby Bonds, their other celebrated off-season acquisition, who, despite two hits and an RBI, struck out with none out and the bases loaded in the seventh inning. Red Sox 6, Orioles 5: Carl Yastrzemski belted a solo homer in the 12th inning off Oriole reliever Doyle Alexander to provide the Red Sox with the victory before the largest opening day Boston crowd in eight years —38,665. Yastrzemski's homer came after Boston's Rick Burleson tied the score at 5-5 with a solo homer in the eighth. Brewers 6, Indians 2: A home opener crowd of 48,160 greeted the return of Hank Aaron to Milwaukee and the game's greatest home-run hitter of all time didn't disappoint them, collecting both his first American League hit and run- batted-in. However, it was John Briggs' towering 400-foot homer in the sixth inning that ignited a five-run rally and sent the Brewers off to victory. Bill Champion got the win, but needed ninth inning relief help from Tom Murphy. Walton Baffles Portland Brass With Comments PORTLAND, Ore. (UPI) The Portland Trail Blazer ownership and the National Basketball Association are likely to look into Bill Walton's latest off-court news-making venture in San Francisco, according to Blazer Executive Vice President Harry Glickman. It is certain that Lenny Wilkens, Blazer coach, along with Glickman and possibly Walton himself will get together next week in Las Vegas during the Pizza Hut Collegiate Ail- Star game to discuss Walton's off-court remarks about the FBI as well as the United States government. Walton accompanied Jack and Micki Scott to a news conference in San Francisco Wednesday in which the Scotts disavowed any alleged wrongdoing with relation to the Patty Hearst case. Walton lambasted the FBI as "the enemy," and he also called "on the world to stand with us in our rejection of the United States government." Athletics 7, Rangers 5: A three-run triple by Joe Rudi climaxed a four-run seventh inning rally for the A's that was initiated when Texas starter Bill Hands threw wildly to second base on a grounder by Phil Gamer which should have been the start of a double play. The game was spiced with the ejection of Texas manager Billy Martin and his third-base coach Frank Lucchesi by rookie umpire Ralph Garcia. Royals 8, Twins 3: Fred Patek's two-run double down the leftfield line brought home two runs and broke up a 33 tie to give route-going Royals' starter Al Fitzmorris the victory after a shaky start. An opening day crowd of 20,397 greeted the Royals, who also got a pair of RBIs each from Buck Martinez and Cookie Rojas. Angels 5, White Sox 0: Nolan Ryan hurled a six-hit shutout for his second win of the season and Dave Chalk continued his torrid hitting with three singles and a double to drive in two runs for the Angels. Ryan fanned 10 and didn't allow any White Sox player to get past second base. Chalk continued on a tear that has seen him collect six straight hits and seven safeties in nine trips. His two- run single capped a three-run third inning. QUESTIONS ABOUT LOANS? WE'LL ANSWER THEM. (No names. No sales pitches.)
