Mets Roll Past St. Louis Seaver Back In Form Tom Seaver pitched a baseball game for the New York Mels and it was no sweat. Better yet, it was no pain. After a prolonged absence with a bad back, Seaver returned Friday night and showed flashes of old time brilliance by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 3-0 with a four-hitter. While overpowering the Cardinals with a stunning fastball, the two time 'Cy Young award winner was more pleased with his physical condition. "The big thing," said Seaver, "was that I was able to pitch and not have pitched since July 7 because of a sciatic nerve condition in his over the past few weeks. Seaver hrew 108 ptiches, including 55 of 66 fastballs for strikes. O t h e r National League scores, Chicago Cubs 10.

GIANTS 5, REDS 4 Steve Ontiveros and Ken Rudolph cracked two-run singles to highlight a five-run third inning that carried San Francisco over Cincinnati.

Fast Pitch Softball NEW YORK (AP) -- Some] people take a reserved approach to the enthusiastic reception the World Football League has received in the three weeks since its first .season started. They say that when the National Football League starts playing, the WFL's attendance will drop off. . ': · ' Members of the New York Stars don't feel that way, however, and the Stars have played before over 140,000 people in their three games this season. "The people who come to Stars games don't go to the NFL games, I think," said Stars' quarterback Tom Sherman. "And in the cities where there aren't NFL teams, the people are going to keep coming." "But New York needs another Texas Ranger second baseman Lenny Ranrtle scores in (he third inning against Chi- cago on a throwing error by White Sox left fielder Carlos May.

Malvern now advances to the southwest sectional playoffs at Paragould next Friday. At that time, Malvern and Paragould will face a team from Louisiana and teams from East and West Texas. mg. A lot of those people have shown up at games the Stars have.played. New York opened the season with a loss before 59,112 at Jacksonville against the Sharks, welcomed 17,943 to 21,000-seat Downing Stadium for their home opener, then trayel- 1 e d to Philadelphia last Thursday for a 17-15 triumph over the Bell before 64,719 and a national television audience. "Our games aren't on the same nights as the NFL, f o r one thing, so there's no compe- titon" says defensive tackle John Elliott. "And for another thing, there are people who have season tickets for the NFL New York Jets and Giants that still come to our game." The game they saw in New York was a horrifying 32-29 loss to the Birmingham Americans after the Stars had breezed to 315 first-half yards and a 29-3 lead in intermission, the lights at Downing stadium were dismally dim-players, coaches and fans admitted it-and the hometown heros lost. Thursday's triumph over the Bell should help as the Stars return to New York to face Jacksonville this Wednesday night to try and avenge their opening If you're in Cleveland and in a tight sporl-or if you're Reggie Cleveland, 0-2 in a tight spot- what do you throw? If you're Cleveland's Gaylord Perry, you throw a fastball. If you're Boston's Reggie Cleveland ,you try a curve. And if you're either one, you get burned.. Perry tried to sneak a fast one past Baltimore's.Paul Blair in the ninth inning Friday night and Blair snuck it into the left field seats for a game-tying two-run homer. Two innings later he hit a sacrifice fly in a four-run burst that carried the Orioles to ah 11-inning 9-5 triumph over the Indians and shackled Perry with his third straight loss. Cleveland...Reggie, that is....was no-hilling the Detroit Tigers for 6 2-3 inings. Then he tried to fool Jim Nettles with a curve. The ball ended up on the warming t r a c k in center field, a solid double. Four innings later, Jim Northrup's single, only the third hit off Cleveland, gave the Tigers an 11-inning 1-0 victory. In Friday night's other games !ew York beat Milwaukee 5-1, Texas topped Chicago 10-6, Oakland defeated Mincsota 5-3 and Kansas City turned back California 3-2.
