Tyson Finally Breaks Loose To Power St. Louis Past Houston ST. LOUIS (AP) - Scrappy Mike Tyson says he's happy the Houston Astros' Larry Dierker buzzed him with a fastball Sunday. Fooled by " t h e 1-1'pitch, the St. '.Louis Cardinals, shortstop Uned a .double over' first, base and headed his team to a 9-1 National League triumph. "He threw it in on me," said Tyson, whose blast scored Iwo second-inning runs and snapped a 1-1 deadlock. "It sort of jammed me and I just barely got around on it," he added, "but I think I was about due for something like that to happen to me." Tyson, like the resl of the Cardinals, had heen locked in a midseasqn slump until he delivered a single, double and triple to ramrod a 14-hit attack.

Normally, the earns that are in first place at All-Star break meet for the eague title in the fall. But the National League West ace is something else. The lodgers, who lost to the East- eading Phillies 2-1 Sunday, are V'z games ahead of the Reds at lis point. Ironically, that's 'here they were at this time ast year, when the Reds rased the Dodgers' lead with a econd-half rally. Los Angeles Manager Walt \lston might see the similarity ut .won't recognize it publicly. le just brings up that familiar 'aseball refrain: "I'd sure ather be 5',4 games ahead than ' l /z games behind." The Dodgers, who held an 3%-game at one stage last sea ion, have ibeen up by as much as 10% over the Reds this year But, like last year, they've lost big part of their.lead by All Star time.

Animosity Plagues Strike Meetings Fruitless WASHINGTON (AP) -- Ani-' mosity continues to plague the abor dispute in the National football League 'between the 20 club owners and the striking players. Â·-- Another contract negotiating session, following three over the weekend, is scheduled for midafternoon but apparently only the players union will be there in full force. The NFL, Management Coun ell, representing . the owners, abruptly broke off negotiations Sunday afternoon and said management would not return until the association submits a revised package of demands. "The Management Counci will not be available for further meetings unless and until the players association comes fortV with the proposals it promisee and failed to submit for the last three days," said a statement from the owners' negotiators. "The Management Counci' will have a representative available to receive the propos als when, as and if they are made," the statement said. 'The Management Council will .hen be available for further meetings . . . at a mutually agreeable lime and place as soon as it has had the opportunity to review the proposals." Bill Curry of the Houston Oil ers, union president, said onl that the council' s statement amounted to the second breach Shis week of the agreement the two sides had Â· with federal mediator James Scearce. He also said the owners statement is a "lie" because t h e players' union has attempted to negotiate a new con tract in an effort to end the 22 day strike. "We're going to be there lo morrow and continue to nego- ,iale in good faith," said Curry. Â·We hope the owners will ba .here," Sources said the owners departed Sunday's session after accusing the NFL Players Association of failure to' respond -_ a comprehensive- management counteroffer Friday to tha union's original 63 demands. The'so-called freedom issues, ivhich the players argue are the crux of their demands, were just about, ignored by the management proposal: TRI-LAKES ANTENNA Soles and Service New Uied Antenna!

In (he first eight innings, Monge shut out the Travelers on six singles. Arkansas rallied In the ninth by loading the bases with none out on three straight singles. Then, El Paso third baseman Ron Jackson hooted Jerry Humphrey's grounder, allowing one run to score and leaving the bases loaded. When Rudy Kinsrd hit a sac rlfice fly, Arkansas narrowed the E.I Paso lead lo 4-2. But with the tying run at second, Monge settled down to retire the last two hitters. El Paso's offense came from the bats of Dave Collins and John Balaz, the Texas League's leading hitter. Both had three Ms each, and Balar. drove in two runs with a pair of doubles. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Chris Evert was matchless, and DiMaggio made a hit.
