"I wasn't really concerned about the hit, although I thought about a no-hitter in the fifth inning," the Los Angeles left-hander sail "The hit didn't get me down as much as the run since it made it · one-run game again." Rau allowed two more singles before giving way to relief ace Mike Marshall in the ninth with the Dodgers on top 2-1. And after coming within five outs of a no - hitter, the second-year left-hander didn't even figure in the decision. Marshall yielded a game-tying single to Zisk an.d then became the winning pitcher when Steve Garvey homered leading off the bottom of the ilnth. giving the Dodgers a 3-21 ictory. !

Home runs exploded at Municipal Stadium instead of people. It resulted in a 9-3 Cleveland victory over the Texas Rangers peace and quiet. in relative NFL Considers Pro Division For Europe NEW YORK (AP) -- First Seattle, then the world. That seems to be the general direction of expansion as the N a t i o n a l Football League brought Seattle into its ranks, then on Wednesday seriously was considering opening a separate pro league in Europe next spring. The NFL owners, who wrap . up their three-day meeting today, took Seattle into the fold Tuesday. On Wednesday, the owners modified the punt re- 'turn rule again, then expressed enthusiasm over the proposal of a six-team, six-week league in Europe, recommended to start next spring. Bob Kap, active in European soccer and instrumental in bringing several soccer-style kickers to the United States, presented the plan. The teams would be stocked by players from the NFL, who would return then to the U.S. for the regular NFL fall season. The proposed cities are: Istanbul, nicknamed the Conquerors; Rome, nicknamed the Gladiators; West Berlin; Barcelona; Munich, and Vienna. Except for Istanbul, which has " a stadium that seats 55,000, all these cities have stadiums with seating capacities of more than 75,000. Seattle and Tampa, which was voted into thte NFL in April, raised the NFL ranks to 28 teams. Both clubs are to begin play in 1976. although the : timetable could be moved up a year, NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle says. As for the punt rule, last season, any player on the punting team could race downfield to cover the kick when the ball · was snapped. In April, the NFL . attempted to stimulate more punt returns by preventing any player from running downfield until the ball was kicked. Now the rule, given unani- ' moos approval by the owners, allows for a wide receiver on each side to leave the line of scrimmage when the ball is (napped, the rest of the players after the kkk. "I really liked it w h e n the Tans stood up and cheered our soys when they hit their homers." noted Cleveland Manager Ken Aspromonte. "That's the kind of fans we want to come out and see us. They can enjoy our success with us. Those others, I don't ever want to see around." It was a far more civilized scene than Tuesday night when their game was torn apart by a riot. Hundreds of fans, appar ently hyped up by "10-cent beer night," threw debris and flooded the field, chasing the players to cover. The Indians had to forfeit the game. On Wednesday night, only about 8,000 persons s h o w e d up--about one-third of Tuesday night's audience. The public address announcer told them that fines would be levied if anyone ran on the playing field. And they cheered the announce ment. There were mostly cheers from then on. as Oscar Gamble ind Dave Duncan hit three-run homers for the Indians in seven-run sixth inning. The only boos through the entire evening came when Texas Manager Billy Martin walked to the mound to change a pitch In the other American League games, the Baltimore Orioles nipped the Kansas City Royals 5-4; the Oakland A's blasted the Detroit Tigers 9-1 the California Angels turned back the Milwaukee Brewers 6 5; thte Chicago White Sox stopped the New York Yankees 7-6 in 15 innings and the Boston Red Sox defeated the Min nesota at Twins 5-3.
