Texas Sweeps Twinbill From AM, Takes 10th Straight League Title By THE ASSOCIATED PRES5, Texas gave a grand goodbye to 47 year-old Clark Field Sat urday with a methodical dou blcheader sweep of Texas AM to win another Southwest Con forence baseball title. The Longhorns clinched the title with the 8-0 opening-game triumph, and closed Clark Field with a 4-3 second-game dec! sion. It was Texas' 49th trip to the SWC baseball throne since 1915 Allen Miller Matches His Tour Namesake TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- "Confidence Is from ear to ear," said a grinning Allen Miller after nabbing his first Professional Golfers Association tour triumph and an $18,000 check in the Tallahassee Open. The third-year pro from Pensacola, Fla., leader of the tournament from the start, had three bogeys and a one-over- par 73 Sunday on the 7,124-yard Killearn Golf and Country Club course. But he clinched the win with a 20-foot chip shot on the par-5 17th hole which stopped a foot and a half from the cup and resulted in a birdie. "I really didnt have any shot at all," Miller s a i d . "I just walked up, hit it and hoped I hit it the right way. Its one of the best shots I ever hit in my life-" Miller then watched playing partner Joe Inman, a tour rookie, miss an 18-foot birdie putt on the final hole which could have resulted in a sudden death playoff. Inmans closing 21 lied him with veteran Dan Sikes and Eddie Pearce at 13-under 175, one stroke behind Miller, for $6,960 each. Inman, . 26, of Greensboro, N.C., had lost his temper after chipping out of bounds on the par-4, sixth hole Thursday and It resulted in a triple bogey 7 for the hole. Pearce, 22, of Tampa, finished with a 69 and figured he cost himself a possible victory when he left his clubs at a friend's home after a Friday night gathering. He had to borrow some clubs he had never played with before and said it made him conservative. Miller said he figured victory was "just a matter of time" because of his improved playing recently. He credited Dave Hill and Andy North for working with him and changing his game around. and the 10th In a row. For the last 47 years, the Longhorns' homo (leld has boon Clark unique with Its center tick c l i f f , but a new stadium Is bclhf? hullt and the field Is being torn down. Jfm Gideon pitched a slx-hll shutout for Texas In the open Ing game. He was aided hy a two-run homer by Rick Bradley and two RBI by Keith Moreland, who added a two-run homer in the second game. The Aggies' Jim Jackcr smashed a two-run homer in the ninth inning to tie the second game 3-3 but Texas' Bobhy Clark raced home from third on a wild pitch to win the game in the bottom half of the inning Texas finished with a 20-4 league mark, followed by the Aggies' 17-7 ledger. Texas Christian captured third place with a 14-10 record by sweeping last-place Southern Methodist 17-2 and fi-1.

Helps Gibson To First Win Northww* Arlcqniat TIMES, Men., rAYITTIVILLI, AKKANIA* April 29, 1974 Reitz Still Sizzling ST. tOUJS (AP) - Base- bull's hit-happy St. Louis Cardinals geared down today from a laborious weekend, and the National League's Cincinnati Reds needed the rest. Both, had an open date following a 16-hlt Cardinals bombardment that left the Reds 9-2 losers Sunday and Manager Sparky Anderson In a (oul mood. "It's not my job to assess," snapped the 40-year-old Anderson when asked his Impressions of the St. Louis attack. "He's swinging a hot bat right now," Anderson said In an appraisal of the Cards' Ken Reitz, whose singled in the first inning produced the winning run. The torrid Reilz also scuttled the Reds the night before with a two-oul, l o t h - I n n i n g doubloi for a 4-3 Cards triumph. ' "I'm Just trying to hit Ibc ball hard," confided the slick- fielding, 22-year-old t h i r d baseman, who boosted his batting average to .425 with two hits. · 'I wouldn't be surprised at hitting over .300," the dark- haired, 175-pound athlete admitted, "but to ho over .400 Is something else." Rellz! 34 hits also lead the majors, while the Coras as a team arc batting a lusty..307. "We don't have much power," conceded Ted Sizemorc, who chipped in two doubles and equaled liettle Smith's three-hit total, "but we've got guys who can hit the ball all over the park." The Cards' siege, including 13 hits in the first 2% innings, made It easy for 38-year-olcl Hob Gibson, who probably could have gone the distance In a rocklug chair. "I usually go nine innings this part of the season," remarked Gibson, 1-2. who four times earlier failed to Io so. "I usually don't win ball games early, hut I usually pitch complete games." An ice pack resting on his right knee, Gibson reflecfcd also on a five-rim burst in the opening inning that made Cincinnati starter Clay Kirby, 1-3, the loser. "They play a lot different when they're trying to catch up," he noted of the Reds. "They're not as aggressive. They can't do as many things." Taking due note of Gibson's 10 hit performance was shortstop Mike Tyson. Travs Collect Sixth Victory VICTORIA, Tex.
