Still Have Knack For Losing lew Coach Won't Change Sharks' Fate 'Welcome to the World Football League, Charlie Tate. And welcome back, Matthew Tleecl. ...Tale coached his firsl game Wednesday night--and must fcrjow exactly how Bud Asher felt; Asher was fired by Jacksonville last Saturday after the Sharks, who had a knack of los- irfg close games in the closing Sinules, had dropped to a 2-4 mark. "Talc's debut came against Wfihcatcn Birmingham. IjThe result: The Americans glayed unbeaten and the Sharks showed they still have the knack.. »--Reed, Birmingham's rookie quarterback from Grambling who has his own knack of tak- fitg over in style when veteran George Mira gets hurt, did it again. He drove Ihe Americans to two touchdowns in the fourth quarter--the second one coining with barely a minute to play-- foi a 15-14 victory over the Sharks. In Wednesday night's other WFL games, the New York Stars demolished the Houston iTexans 43-10, the Memphis iSouthmen obliterated the Hawaiians 60-IK the Southern Cali- i fornia Sun bested Ihe Philadelphia Bell 31-18 and the Flori- [ornia Sun bested the hila- | da Blazers heat the Portland Storm 11-7. The Chicago Fire visits ' the Detroit Wheels tonight. Grant Gulhdc had kicked field goals of 31 and 51 yards to give the Sharks a 6-0 lead going into Ihe final period. But Reed threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Alfred. Jenkins to put the Americans ahead. ..Then, after a Jacksonville touchdown moved the Sharks back in front, Reed mquntec the winning louchdown drive. Stars 43, Tcxaiis 10 New York's Bob G'adieux made il look easy. He ran for 84 yards and Ihree louchdowns and 'caught a Tom Sherman pass for a fourth score in the Stars' rout of Houslon for Iheir fiflh straight victory. The Tex ans gave up 231 rushing yards. Soutlmicn CO.'IIawaiians 8 Qaurterback John Huarte threw four first-half scoring passes and Dick Thornton anc Bobby Majors turned inter ccptions into touchdowns Memphis' rout of Ihe Ha waiians. Completes Brave Sweep In Series Evans' Blast Seals Cardinal Doom against the Cards. Two outs later, Mike Lum connected for his eighth homer of the year. "All three I've h i t in this series were down and in, which is my favorite spot," said Evans. He added, "I've n e v e r hit homers three nights in a row." Buzz Capra, 11-6, had a two- hitter until the seventh, when he gave up three hits, including Ken Reilz' fifth home run of the season for the Cards' first run. Moret Gem folk Wood's 3rd Try St. Louis knocked Capra out :n the cigtilh. adding two more runs and another in the ninth inning. Tom House saved the ;ame for the Braves. "I didn't have my host stuff tonight but I did feel good," said House. "I don't have the physical ability to be a Mike Marshall, and probably not what it takes emotionally, either.-' Atlanta kept Cardinal starter Bob Gibson, 7-11, in t r o u b l e most of the night, either scoring or loading the bases in five of the six innings he pitched.' The Braves got their first run in the second inning when Capra walked after two were out, advanced lo third on Ralph Garr's single and scored when Tim McCarver threw off target to second on a futile effort to prevent Gari'. from stealing his second base in two innings. In the ninth, with the tying run .at second, a controversial play took place at third base. Joe Torre hit a fly deep to left field which Garr caught and rifled to Evans to catch Ted Sizemore, attempting to reach third, in a close decision. The Cardinals argued that Sizemore was safe. "I don't k n o w why they raised such a fuss about that play," said Garr. "It was close but it wasn't al| that close. If il had been early in the game, I don't think they would have said anything."

Beaver Level k VAUGHN* :/ BATTERY CO. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "He looked like Cy Young out .here todav." Wilbur Wood, the busy knuck- .eballer of the Chica'go White Sox. could only stand back Wednesday and admire the per- "ormace turned in by Boston's Roger Morel, · Moret, a tall, lean left-hand- er, limited Chicago to just one h i t--an infield single and struck out 12 in pitching the Boston Red Sox to a 4-0 victory over the While Sox, foiling Wood's third try for his 19th victory, Moret is now 7-5, Wood 1845. And if Morel's fielding was as impeccable as his pitching, the White Sox would still be looking for their first hit. The only safety was a slow grounder by Dick Allen in the seventh inning which rolled off the tip of Morel's glove, then was fielded by second baseman Doug Griffin too late for a play at first. Elsewhere in the American League, Texas beat Baltimore 5-J, Cleveland edged Kansas City V-6, New Y o r k defeated M i n n e s o t a 4-1, Milwaukee trimmed Oakland 5-3 ,-inct Detroit blanked California 2-0. Despite Allen's single, Moret was given the no-hit treatment by the Boston front office--his contract was torn up and he received a $1,000 raise. Rangers 5, Orioles 1 Jeff Burroughs slugged a two-run homer to power Texas to victory, raising his season total of runs batted in to 102, tops in the majors. It was his 25th 'homer of the year and the 25th given up by Baltimore's Ross Grimsley, 14-11.
