Rogers chalked up his fifth ictory in six decisions and his econd in as many verdicts gainst the Cardinals this sea- on. But triumph No. 5 was not all lat easy as he struggled hrojgh the f o u r t h inning.

The Expos won the game with a pair of r u n s in the fifth. "He got high, .high," said Manager Gene Mauch referring to Rogers problems. "He go_l high to every man that inning. Even when he struck out Simmons, he struck him out on a high pitch. "If he had walked Simmons h i g h , I might have replaced him. The Expos jumped to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning with Ken Singleton's two-run single capping the outburst. The Expos were also aided by a fielding error by Luis Alvarado who booted Tim Foil's grounder with the bases loaded and one out. The Expos got their first run on the error and, after Cards starter Alan Foster retired Willie Davis, Singleton laced his single. When asked it the long inning and the cool weather might have made his arm tighten up for the fourth inning, Rogers said: "I really didn't fed tight I really can't make any alibis. My pitches had the same velocity as the early innings. I had my stuff, but I was just getting the ball up. The victory was only the second for Montreal in ita last 11 games and snapped a three- game losing streak. The last Montreal triumph was Rogers 4 2 decision over the San Francisco Giants last Saturday. "With all the rainouts we've had, it's tough for the pitchers to get in a groove," R o g e r s said.

(AP) -Billy Buford can get married :oday with his best man, Larry Kenon, on hand after all. The New York Nets saw to that when they belted Utah 111 100 Friday night to clinch the American Basketball Association championship. While his teammates cele brated with a wild champagne and shower party. Kenon hurried to catch a plane to Chicago. His old teammate at Memphis State, Buford, was ;he reason. If the Nets hadn't finished the Stars off Friday night, the two teams would have been back in Utah for a sixth game in their series tonight. "I know that," said Kenon "I kept telling the guys we couldn't lose this one. I've gotta be in Chicago." Kenon obliged his pal with some clutch baskets down the stretch, helping Ihe Nets pul away and clinch New York's first ABA title. The result left the capacity Nassau Coliseum crowd in a frenzy and the play ers had to fight their way into the dressing room. Kenon and guard John Wil liamson, two rookie starters had 23 points and 15 points re spectively. Second year man Brian Taylor had 19 and the old men of the s t a r t i n g lineup, 24 year-old Julius Erving had 20 and 26-year-old Billy Paultz, 21 "They said we'd fold under the pressure of the playoffs,' said Kenon. "But inexperience doesn't mean you can't play What is experience now? We won it." NETS START SLOW The Nels started slowly and led by only two points at half time, 50-48. "We felt fortunate to be up by two at the half,' said playoff Most Valuable Player Erving. who had onls seven poinls in the first half "We felt our defense in the lasl two minutes of the first hall had given us the lead and we decided we had to keep it up in the second half." New York came out hot and opened a ID-point lead at 70-60 But the Stars bounced righ back on the hot hand of Willie Wise, who led all scorers with 34 points. Utah caught New York and then went ahead o the Nets 95-94 with 4:« to play But Kenon hit three basket and Williamson had two Paultz, Erving and Taylor ha: one each as the Nets outscored the Stars 17-5 down the stretch. The team defense that F.rvin_ talked about finally turned the tide. "We can't play better than we did." said losing Coach Joe Mullaney. A year ago, Kenon was on the losing end of his final game when he and Buford and the rest of (he Memphis State team lost to UCLA in the Nationa Collegiate Athletic Association championship game.
