Giants Breeze To 9-5 Victory Wind Humbles St. Louis By THE ASSOCUTED PRESS The San Francisco Giants won in a breeze Thursday. Literally. Aided by toe well-known Candlestick Park wind, the Giants scored seven runs in the fourth inning and went on to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 9-5. "Candlestick is by far the toughest park to play outfield in the National League," said St. Louis center fielder Li; Melendez. He lost a fly ball in the wind during that wild fourth inning and it cost the Cardinals three runs. Frustrated over Gary Matthews' wind-blown double with the bases loaded. Melcn- de» noted: "Alt you can go by is the sound of the ball hittinf the bat. It sounded hard hit, so I started back. But the wind held it up and I ran as hard as I could but couldn't get to it." The wind also pestered St. Louis starter Lynn McGlothen. who held a 3-0 lead until he was blown out in the fourth. "I had great stuff and when I got that 3-0 lead, I thought I w a s i n c o n t r o l , " , said McGlothen, a former American Leaguer making his first appearance in Candlestick's wind cavern. "But I just couldn't adjust to the wind. I felt like I had' a good, live fastball, but the wind was moving it two or three feet." In the other National League games, the New York Mete nudged the Cincinnati Red* 4-3; the Houston Astros beat the Montreal Expos 4-0; the Los Angeles Dodgers blanked the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-0 and the Chicago Cubs beat the San Diego Padres 5-1 ; MeU 4, Reds 1 John Milner hit a tremendous teadoff home run against reliever Pedro' Borbon in the eighth inning, lifting New York over Cincinnati.

It was in the stars. Schlee, 35, an avid student of astrology, hasn't been playing too well this year on the pro golf tour. He is 66th on the money winning list at $20,119 and his best has been a tie for llth at San Diego. "I had a bad astrological aspect between Neptune and my rising sign, Aquarius. Neptune is a very t slow moving planet. It kind of boggles the mind. It makes it very hard to concentrate." Schlee explained. The 6-foot-3 Schlee, who describes himself as "the defending runner-up" in next week's U.S. Open, said he has been bored, lackadaisical, unable to concentrate. "At the Masters for example I was eight under on the front side for the tournament and eight over on the backside," Schlee said. So what's different now at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club? The bad astrological aspects are gone now, Schlee explained. "It left two weeks ago June has always been a good month for me. I'm a Gemini." It was in June last year that Schlee started the final round of the U.S. Open at Oakmont tied for the lead. He finished second when Johnny Miller fired a course record 63 to win. While Schlee ambled starry- eyed around the 6,700-yard, P a r-72 Whitemarsh course claiming eight birdies and two bogeys, 26-year-old Tom Jenkins and veteran Charley Sifford carded five-under-par 67s to trail by one stroke. Another stroke back at 68 were Jim Colbert, Bob Allard, Victor Regalado, Wally Armstrong and Tom Kite. There were 11 grouped at 69, including Bob Menne. upset winner last week at the Kemper Open. Defending champion Tom Weiskopf was at 71 with 14 others. Masters' champion Gary Player also scored a one-under 71. and U.S. Open king Johnny Miller, a five time winner on the tour this year, carded a par-72.

Gabrielsen, a U.S. Walker Cupper from Atlanta, has found a sweet putting touch just at the right time. But he has been cautious about his victory chances all week. Owens, a 47-year-old accountant from Lexington. Ky., is similarly modest. "T came because I always wanted to play in the British Amateur, since I was a little boy," said Owens, on his first visit to Britain. Ke was twice Kentucky ama- teur champion. He was a quarter-finalist in the U.S. Amateur U years ago. After losing the first two holes Thursday, Owens c a m e back to win a thrilling match by one hole over George Haines a 30-year-old teacher from Far Hills, N.J. Gabrietsen has been one of the few golfers to consistently master Muirfield's windy, 6.862- yard, par-71 links this week. He completely outclassed Bill Cosgrove. of Worcester, Mass to win 5 and 3 in Thursday's sixth round. Today Gabrielsen met Peter Davidson, a 44-year-old English dental surgeon, while Owen took on 1S72 British Amateur winner Trevor Homer.. Cannonade Will Run Without Cordero NEW YORK (AP) _ Traine Woody Stephens thinks Cannonade could be the fastest J- year-old in the Belmont Stake Saturday because the Kentucky Derby winner wasn't so fast in getting ready for the race. "Maybe 1 worked Cannonad too fast for the Preakness.' Stephens said Thursday after a field of 12 was entered for the IW-mile Belmont. Cannonade, who worked a lei surely mile in 1:48 1-5 Monday compared to miles of 1:44 1 for Little Current and 1:3* 1-S for Hudson County, went five eighths in 59 3-5 and out six fur longs in 1:13 J-5 /Thursday. His first quarter was in 24 seconds and the half in 47 3-5. · ·No matter how fast Cannonade goes Saturday, it appeared he will run without An gel Cordero Jr., who rode him in the Derby and to a thin place finish in the Preakness. The New York State Racing and Wagering- Board rulei against Cordero's appeal of suspension for careless riding last week at Belmont Park. The suspension began last Monday and ends next Monday. Stephens said he has con f erred with owner John M. Olin and it was decided to name Jorge: Velasques to ride Cannonade. The early favorite for the 106th Belmont scheduled to start about 5:40 p.m., EDT was Little Current, who finishe ifth in the Derby and then won the Preakness by seven lengths under Miguel Rivera, who wil ~ide again.

But that was before Mike Hegan: Hegan, a newcomer to the Milwaukee bench, laced a two- run pinch single Thursday, the irst successful Brewer pinch lit'in 24 attempts this season, and the Brewers dumped the California Angels 9-7. Elsewhere in an abbreviated American League schedule the Texas Rangers dropped the Cleveland Indians 6-2 and t h e New York Yankees downed the Chicago White Sox 5-1. In a pinch, the last person you'd call on would be a Milwaukee pinch hitter. But Call ornia Manager Bobby Winkles eft the Brewers little choice. "I knew they didn't have any right-handed hitters left on the bench but (Bob) Collucio." said Winkles, explaining why he replaced right-hand pitcher Skip -ockwood for lefty John Cum wrland In the seventh Inning 'I knew Collucio had been hurt and I 'wasn't sure he was able to hit." Milwaukee Manager Del ?randall, who later confirmed that Collucio was unable to hit, was forced to send up the left hand hitting Hegan. Of said his teammates "told me'he has a big breaking ball. so I tried to lean up to the plate," said Hegan, recently acquired from the New York Yankees. With their advice, he got his hit. Rangers 8.

Sue Berning took a lesson from Archer three weeks ago in Reno, Nev., and Thursday the Incline Village, Nev., professional took only 30 putts with her new side-saddle putting method to fire a first-round leading 68.
