No, Graig Nettles. Nettles has done something that even Aaron has not been able to accomplish yet. The New York Yankee third baseman broke an American League record and lied the major league mark with his llth home run of April during Sunday's 8-5 loss to Texas in the second game of a double header. The Yankees, who beat the in the opener, have the hottest long-ball hitter in the majors in Nettles. Somewhat of a disappointment last season after his acquisition from Cleveland, Nettles has become the darling of the New York press and fans. His blast, a two-run shot off Ferguson Jenkins Sunday, broke the American League record of 10 set in 1969 by Baltimore's Frank Robinson and tied the major league mark set by Pittsburgh's Willie Stargell in 1971. In other American League games, the Baltimore Orioles nipped the Oakland A's 4-3; the Minnesota Twins lopped the Milwaukee Brewers 6-5; the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 6-4; the Boston Red Sox turned back the Kansas City Royals 5-4 in 13 innings and the Cleveland Indians walloped the California Angels 102. Ron Blomberg's Ihree-run homer and Thurman Munson solo shot highlighted a barrage of extra-base hits that produced seven runs in the third inning, powering the Yankees to their opening-game victory over Texas.

(AP) -Johnny Miller wasn't expecting to win the Tournament of Champions. Not after that opening 75. And, as late as the last round he was pulling for Buddy Allin, a onetime team mate at Brigham Young. "He's a gutsy little guy who's had a lot of problems. A real gentleman. I was pulling for him lo win," Miller said, smiled, and added: "But I was trying to get in my licks, too." He did. Miller claimed his fifth pro golf title of the year Sunday with a clutch four-foot par-saving putt on the last hole that let him avoid a sudden-death playoff, with Allin and John Mahaffey. Miller, the U.S. Open champion and the sensation of the tour this season, was the only man in the elite field of 25 tour- iiament winners who broke par in the windy, pressure-packed final round. He had a 69 and a 280 total. Allin and Mahaffey, now a runner-up three times this season, each had a share of the top spot until they bogeyed the 72nd hole. They tied for second at 281, Mahaffey with a final 70, Allin with 71. Billy Casper was alone at 71--28,3. The group at 285 included Gene · Littler, Jerry Heard and Hubert Green, a two-time wininer this year. Littler and Heard had 71s on the 6,855-yard La Costa Country Club course and Green blew to a 77. Jack Nicklaus. a four-time winner of this tournament and favored to do it again, closed with a 75 and was well back at 287. Lee Trevino trailed the field with a 300 total. For the first time in two decades Arnold Palmer failed to qualify for the tournament that is made up only of regular tour events for the last 12 months.

Miller collected $40,000 from the total purse of $200.000 and pushed his winnings for the year to an eye-popping $192,877. "Up until a year ago I had to play my very best and get the breaks to win a golf tournament," Miller said. "Now it's getting like Nicklaus. You know, he wins a golf tournament and comes in and says 'I didn't play particularly well.' "I don't mean that my game is anywhere near as, good as his. I don't mean that at all. What I mean is that I can play not my best, just pretty good, and still win." Miller, who now has won eight times in the last 10 months, scored previous victories this year in the Bing Crosby National Pro-Am, the Phoenix and Tucson Opens, and the Heritage Classic, Willie Slargcll added a two-run homer in the Pirates's win. Stiirgell connected in a three- run fourth and relief pitcher Dave Giusti. DODGEll 4, EXPOS 0 Sieve Yoaficr slammed a three-run homer to back the four-hit pitching of Doug Rnu and Mike Marshall.

PARES 5, PHILLIES 4 Willie McCovcy's run-scoring single capped a five-run rally in the ninth inning, giving the Padres their third win in a row and sixlh in Iheir last seven games after a 3-13 start. CUBS 4, BRAVES 3 B i l l y Williams' two-run homer off ex-leammale Jack Aker in Ihc eighlh inning enabled the Cubs to snap a five- game losing streak. Craig Robinson's bases-loaded two-run single in the seventh had put the Braves on top 3-2. METS 6-6, GIANTS 014 Ron Hodges slammed a two- run horncr in the seventh inning of the nightcap, breaking a 3-3 tie. John Milner also hom- ered for New York while Steve Ontiveros connected for the Giants. The Mets played long-ball in the opener with a pair of two-run homers by Dave Schneck backing Jon Matlack's four-hit pitching. Boston Defense Stifles Milwaukee Celtics Trip Bucks M I L W A U K E E (AP - The Boston Celtics challenged tho Milwaukee Bucks lit Ihelr strength -- super-stars Kareon Abclul-Jabbnr nnd Oscar Rob ertson--uitd lived to tell aboii it. Dave Cowens 1 outside shoot ing kept the 7-foot-2 Abdul-Jab bar away from the Boston has ket Sunday, while pressure team defense wore clown Rob orison, the Bucks' SS-yenr-oU playmaker. The formula, plus 26 points by old pro John Havll cck, swept.the Celtics to a 98-83 victory and a 1-0 lend in the National Basketball Association championship playoffs. "If we had just let them do what they wanted to, they Broyles Tells Athletic Plans LITTLE ROCK (AP) Frank Broyles, University o: Arkansas athletic director, sak Saturday that architectural plans now call for a seating ca pacity at Barnhill Fieldhouse ol 10.200. The architects still have n--ji presented an estimate of the cost, and Broyles would noi make an estimate. He said he has been assurer .hat the rennovation, schedulec .0 be completed by the start ol the 1975 basketball season, will not cost as much as the erection of a total new facility would have.

"We wanled lo make Oscnr handle Ihe ball as much as possible because ho gets tired," White said, adding the Bucks can expect more pressure In Game 2 of the best-of-scven scries on Tuesday here. "We're going lo press no m a t t e r what," h e said. "There's nothing they can do about it. They can't hire a hell- copter to bring the ball up." Abdul-Jabbar, the NBA's Most Valuable Player, poured in 35 poinls and grabbed 14 rebounds. But only two team- males, Bob Dandridge and reserve Mickey Davis, scored in double figures--managing 12 points each. Dandridge, guarded most of the time by the 34-year-old Havlicck, sank only six of 17 shots and scored only eight points until the final minute. Roberlson connected on only two of 13 shots. Cowens. whose 19 points matched White's total, sank three consecutive baskets midway in the first quarter as the Celtics broke from an 11-11 tie to a permanent lead. Cowens played much of tits tlino near the lop of Iho key or on the rlglil side in what Boston Coach Tom Helnsolm called Iho Celtics' no-post offense. Tho strategy forced Abdul-Jabbar nwny from the defensive basket, opening the middle for drives by Huvllcck. "Will) Kareeni. It's a cat-and- mouse game," Havlicek said. "If you have a big guy you try to kcop him under the basket. We don't have a big guy, so wo try to keep Karcem outside." The Celtics, fucllnu their fast break by Quire-bounding the Bucks '16-40, led 35-19 after one period, by 17 poinls in HID second quiirlcr and 67-52 wilh 5:0? lefl in the third period. Cowens, five inches shorter t h a n Abdul-Jabbar, had IV rebounds.
