Pirates Aren’t Q uitting Cincinnati — Cincinnati nolds a 2-0 lead over Pfttsburgh Monday in the best-of-five National League playoff, but Pirates manager Danny Murtaugh says he isn’t ready to slit his throat and Reds skipper Sparky Anderson isn’t shouting for the champagne. Murtaugh, the doughty Pittsburgh boss, was shaving after the Pirates 2-1 loss to the Reds Sunday, the second straight defeat in their home stadium, when someone asked him if it was throat-slitting time. “No way,’’ retorted little Danny, careful to lower the razor as he spoke. “I thought this was three out of five,’’ he added. “We’ve won three in a row a lot of times. T know it’s tough, but you never give up until there are no chances left.” Anderson should have been supremely confident, needing one victory and with the rest of the series scheduled in River Front Stadium here. If he was, he managed to hide it. Sitting behind a desk in his visiting team office, the Reds’ pilot explained his uneasy feeling. “We were beat by San Diego three straight at San Diego, so why can’t Pittsburgh beat us three straight?” he asked. “I don’t think the odds were too good for Pittsburgh to lose two straight in Pittsburgh. I’m . happy to be leading 2-fl, but I can’t be plea.sed until we win three — I can’t be.” While Cincinnati has won the first two games in the series, the Reds didn’t do it in Big Red Machine style—with power. Instead they w'on with solid pitching and scratched for runs. Maybe this is why Anderson is apprehensive. Take the second game Sunday, for example. It wasn’t the big bats of National l<eague home run and RBI king Johnny Bench or the power of Tony Perez that turned the trick. U was a one-man show by Bobby Tolan, a St. Louis Cardinals di.scard two seasons ago. The slim, 170-pound Tolan, who led the major leagues in .-■tolen bases this .season, turned on hi.s s[)eed in the third to provide the Reds’ first run. He singled up the middle, stole .second and continued to third when Pittsburgh catcher .Manny Sanguillen threw the ball into center field. The rirates’ starter, lefty Luke Walker, was upset and he uncorked a wild pitch, Tolan scoring. Then, in the fifth, Tolan caught a fast ball, waist high and down the middle and slammed it over the right- {•cnterfield fence for a home run to make it 2-0. After the Pirates closed the gap 2-1, Tolan singled in the eighth and, with a burst of speed, scored all the way from first on Perez’ double. In addition to Tolan, the Reds’ hero list included 19-year- old Don (lullett, who still can’t believe he's pitching in a National Lcgue playoff when only last year he was a high school pitcher. “I had it in mind to be a big league pitcher,” said the baby- face, curly-haired teenager, “hut I figured it would take three or four years.” (lullett relieved in the sixth with one run home and the Pirates still threatening. There were two on base with power- hitting Willie Stargell coming to the plate. The left-hander from Lynn, Ky., threw his money pitch, a fast ball, and Stargell flied out. (lullett finished up 31/3 innings of relief without allowing a hit. Tolan slightly sprained his left ankle while scoring in the eighth, but continued in the game. He soaked the ankle in a dishpan full if ice after the game and said he’d be in the line-up Monday. “You have to stand a little pain in an important series like this,” he said. Puppy Slakes To Lincoln Dog Raymond — Hasty Beck, a female pointer handled by Lincoln’s Bill Roussan, won the open puppy stakes in the Husker Bird Dog Club’s 45th Semiannual field trial here Sun- • day. Super Speculator, a male pointer handled by Waltin Olson of Calamus, Iowa, was a double winner, taking the open and amateur shooting events. Ranger’s Royal Seymour, a male pointer handled by Herb Forsythe of Greentop, Mo., won the open derby. Whitely Paleface, a male pointer handled by Joe Barksdale of Des Moines, Iowa, won the open all-age event. Broncos Crawl Out of Dungeon, Pull Rug From Under KC, 26-13 UPI TELEPHOTO Kansas Gity quarterback Len Dawson spent a lot of time in this position Sunday as the Super Bowl champion Chiefs were dumped in Denver, 26-13. By Associated Press The Denver Broncos, a dog-eared doormat in pro football dungeons for years, finally pulled the rug from under the Kansas City Chiefs ... and let the sun shine in. “This was a big win—probably the biggest since we came here,” chortled coach Lou Saban after his perennial lambs tamed into tigers and shelled the powerhouse Chiefs 26-13 in the National League Sunday. “The boys played well,” added the jubilant Saban, “it took a lot of people to get a victory like this. All you can say is that it was a great team effort. I know it’s a cliche ... but it’s about all you can say.” If Saban was caught with his quips down, it was no wonder. Sunday’s success was the first time since 1964 that the Broncos have beaten the Chiefs, last year’s Super Bowl champs. In fact, Denver has mastered Kansas City only twice in its history. The Broncos never have had a winning year since 1960 and the closest they’ve come was a 7-7 mark in 1962. Among 13 pastings they’ve taken from the Chiefs include scores of 59-7 and 52-21 in 1963, 56-10 in 1966 and 52-9 in 1967. PS: Sunday’s victory gave Denver a 3-0 mark this year. The Bronco buster paced a pattern of turnabouts on Black Sunday. Green Bay upset Minnesota 13-10, beating the Vikings for the first time at home since 1965; Buffalo derailed the highly-favored New York Jets 34-31 and St. Louis pulled off a 20-7 shocker over Dallas’ high-powered Cowboys. Los Angeles won as expected, rolling over San Diego 37-10; Washington stalled the Philadelphia Eagles 33-21; Atlanta slipped by San Francisco 21-20; New Orleans knocked off the New York Giants 14-10, the Baltimore Colts turned the tables on underdog Boston, grabbing a comeback 14 victory and Houston bullied Cincinnati 20-13. The Broncos’ manhunting defense played get-the- quarterback, and got to Kansas City ace Len Dawson seven times. Saban was obviously satisfied with the performance: “1 think we have shown in our three games so far that we can hang tough. To win in this league you have to be able to stop people, something this club hasn’t been able to do in the past.” Bob Howfield. Denver’s former soccer player from England, kicked four field goals, one for 47 yards. The ferocious Bronco defenders let the big rough Chiefs score only one touchdown — a 52->ard drive late in the third period. Green Bay quarterback Bart Starr, listed as a questionable starter because of injuries, played the entire game. He moved his team within field goal range for two three- pointers, and Dave Hampton provided the Pack with a 101-yard touchdown run on a kickoff in the fourth quarter. “It was a vicious defensive game,” said i?tarr, “it was very rough and if you can win one like this, you’ve got to be pleased. In this kind of game, neither side gets a better system generated. The breaks make the difference.” Dennis Shaw, cucumber-cool under fire in his rookie season, passed for two touchdowns for Buffalo. His last scoring strike was the clincher—a 25-yarder lo Marlin Briscoe with 7:20 left. Joe Namath also threw two TD passes for the Jets. “We’ve never really had a No. 1 quarterback,” said Shaw. “I’ve kind of worked my way up to this point, and I hope to stay.” Orioles Repeat in American League Baltimore — The streaking Baltimore Orioles charged into the 1970 World Series Monday, riding the seven-hit pitching of Jim Palmer to an easy 6-1 victory over Minnesota to complete a three-game sweep of the Twins in the American League championship playoff series. It marked the second straight year that the Orioles had wiped out the Twins in three straight playoff games and gave them 14 consecutive victories including the 11 straight they strung together at the end of the regular season. Palmer was overpowering, striking out 12 Twins and dominating the show. Some shoddy Minnesota fielding and timely Baltimore hitting pro- vided three a 5-0 lead in the innings and after first that, Palmer, 20-10 during the regular sea.son, just coasted. The Birdls, who took charge early in each game of this series, nicked Jim Kaat for a run in the first on singles by Don Buford and Boog Powell sandwiched around Paul Blair’s sacrifice. An inning later. Palmer lofted a short fly ball but there was a mixup between center fielder Ji-m Holt and second baseman Danny Thompson and the ball fell. Holt was charged with a t.wo-base error on the play.

Robinson, who had three hits Monday, finished with seven in the series, matching his output in last year’s playoff against the Twins. Dave Johnson lined a single off Thompson’s glove and Robinson stopped at third. Bert Blyleven relieved Kaat and Andy Etchebarren bounced to short.

Bob: We Won’t Look Past ML By 1K)N FORSYTHE Nebraska football coach Bc^ Devaney made one thing clear Monday. The Cornhuskers are thinking only about Missouri this week. “We’re pointing for this one,” he said at the weekly Extra Point Club luncheon. “If we don’t come out of this one we can’t say we were looking ahead toward Kansas.” “We’re read>’ to win, but it will take a real fine effort,” he added. “Missouri presents you with as tough a defense as any in the country. It is a difficult team to prepare for.” He reiminded that the Cornhuskers scored 42 points against Minnesota a year ago and only seven tihe next week at Missouri. But he observed that last week’s 35-10 win at Minnesota was over a better team than the Cornhuskers faced a year ago. “It was a pleasant game in that we had 21 points in the first quarter,” he said.

But Saturday we had one of our best days of running up inside.” Devaney had praise for the offensive line for doing an exceptional job of giving I-backs Jeff Kinney and Joe Orduna running room. They combined for 161 yards in 35 carries. Left tackle Bob Newton was nominated as the Cornhuskers’ lineman of the week and Devaney noted that the big senior could well add Big Eight lineman of the week honors, too. “We’re getting good effort from our squad,” Devaney said, noting that the back-up performers were giving the starters good competition. “If they continue along this vein we can be a pretty good football team. How good only time will tell,” he said. The (^rnhusker coach noted that the team came out of the game in good shape, but that linebacker Pat Morell and safety Bill Kosch were confined in the Student Health Center with flu attacks. Devaney said that he wished that there were some way to squeeze in more people for this week’s Missouri - game. “We may look into the possibility of getting a few more seats in the future,” he said. The possibility of enlarging Memorial Stadium is probably limited to adding more seats above the South stands. Top 20 Results Nebraska’s offensive line made things easy for the Cornhusker backs at Minnesota Saturday. Right guard Donnie McGhee and center Doug Dumler combine to force open a hole in the Gopher defense as McGhee straightens up Steve Thompson (70) and Dumler handles Mike Goldberg (72).
