HOME RUNS--Schmidt, Phi, Yanks Close On Boston With M Win By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Unknown pitcher Larry Gura struck anolher blow for Hie underdog and the New York Yankees had a new pitcher and pennant race. "If you can't beat the best you're hurting anyway," said Gura after Graig Nettle's run- scoring single in the ninth ning knocked off the California Angels 2-1, "So you mighl as ivell find out right away what's gonna happen." The triumph, the Yankees' fifth straight, placed them five games behind the front-running Boston Red Sox in Ihe American League East. Elsewhere in the AL, the Oakland A's blasted Boston 7-0; the Detroit Tigers shaded the Texas Rangers 6-5; the Min nesota Twins tripped the Baltimore Orioles 5-1; Ihe Kansa: City Royals blanked the Mil waukee Brewers 2-0, and the Chicago White Sox took a air of 8-5 games from the Clcve ad Indians. Gura, called up from Syr acuse in · the International ..eague a week ago, was mak' ing his first American League appearance. He had spen much of his career in the minor eagues with Tacoma and Wich ta and parts of four seasons vith the Chicago Cubs in the National League. Twins 5, Orioles 1 Ross Grimsley gave up hilf in only one innig -- the sixtl -- but that was too much fo: :he Baltimore pilchcr and thi Orioles.

Northeast's Love made a name for himself as a junior, rushing for more than 1.000 yards. He carried the ball 20-30 limes a game last year, but Northeast Coach Jim Crowson said Charger opponents may. see less of Love this year. "Andrew will be a key man again this year, hut I don't think he'll need to carry the ball so much." Crowson said. "We've got other folks back there who c^n run." He was talking about Sink, the quarlerback; halfback Kevin Evans, outstanding as a sophomore, and slotback David Nutt. Sink guided Newport to the )lass AA finals in 1972 and then .ransferrcd to Northeast. He was used as running back, wide receiver and No. 2 quarlerback last year. Crowson said Ihe Chargers would sprinl out more this year because Sink "can hurt people outsdie." EXCITING TEAM Crowson, who guided Northeast to a 7-4 record in his first year, said the Chargers would be an exciting learn. "WVI1 be able to do a lot of differenl things, I hope," he said.

(AP) -Coach' Bill Davidson of Ar- uuisas Stale Universily praised lis senior quarterbacks, Steve Surks and James Flynn, follow- ng Ihe Tribe's first scrimmage T the season here Saturday light. "Our quarterbacks showed us more tonight than they have in ill our previous practices put ogether," Davidson said. "If lur receivers had only been a ittle more cooperative, we would be closer to being on schedule." The No. 1 defense, which"was matched against the No. 2 offense, kept its unscored-on record for the fall drills intact. That was largely due to plays by tackle Eddie Morgan, linebacker Mike Malham and nose- guard Bill Muzik. "It was really a team with out defense tonight," Davidson said. "I inink they're beginning to believe in themselves." The No. 1 offense marched 70 yards for a touchdown on its first possession. Burks relied nostly on fullback Stan Win- 'rey and tailback Lyle Latti more to move the ball. Lattimore go ihe six points on a wide sweep when a Winfrey block cut loose on a 13 yard sideline scamper. After the top defense hailed the No. 2 offense, Flynn Ihen hi a two-out Jimmy Wicks, who ran 46 yards for the second score. The Indians, who open thei. season Sept. 7 at Southwestern HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Cougars enter* the college football wars this autumn with a young quarterback blessed with potential, 26 minules of playing experience and a large dose of true grit. It may be the latter altribule which propels David Husmann and the Cougars up the ladder the final Associated Press polls. - ' H u s m a n n ' i s Coach Bill Yeo man's quarterback. ''Hopefully 26 minules will be enough experience," Yeoman says of the junior squadman. "You can't say much about him until he does the job." Of course, Yeoman is tremendously high on the 6-foot-2, 196- hen that sometimes you, just lave to stick things out." David's father, Ed, was a ootball star at Nebraska and played five years for the Houston Oilers in the National Football League. "Dad wanted me to go to Ne- iraska, but they didn't give me a look," Husmann said. Husmann got to play in several games his. freshman year. pound Husmann. And there's good reason.

(AP) - David Pearson and Richard Petty have staged their "David and Richard" show again, this time before 41,000 at Michigan International Raceway. Pearson was the winner in this one, beating Petty by a freewheeling seven seconds in the Yankee 400 for Grand national stockcars. "I'll lake 'em any way I can gel 'em," said Ihe graying, 39- year-old triumph Pearson Sunday. of his "But latest had some fun, and a few unkind words, with each other recently. I like to beat him right there at the line, not by a safe margin." Pearson gained Ihe lead for good wilh 36 circuils left around the oval. Petty banked, trailed two-mile by only about four seconds at the time, but could make no further headway ~as Pearson wheeled his red and white Mercury home to his 82nd career triumph.

PLAYED "David only BRIEFLY played briefly during the regular season bo cause we just couldn't seem to get him in there," Yeoman said. "We'd 'get to the poin where we could play him then the other team would score." Husmann played the f i n a quarter of Houston's 47-7 Astro- 31uebonnet Bowl romp over Tu .ane. On one play Husmaun and a running hack missed con nections with the ball left lyin, an the ground. While everyon was swept along in the flow o Lhe play, Husmann plucked th ball up and dashed seven yard for a touchdown in the other d: rection. "That was one of my higge moments," Husmann blushes. The Cougars finished ninth i the final AP rankings last yea and Husmann says flatly "Ou goal this year is national recog nition. "I know I'm stepping in som tough shoes (Noble's) but whil he was quicker I'm not scare to run over somebody. We'll ge the job done." The SWC tour left Housto Sunday with the distinct impression Husmann meant what he says. eves Beavers is as good at ny noseman in the state. He also said the Chargers ave size at tackle and speed nd experience in the secon- ary. "If we win the championship, ur defense will be a big factor n it," he said. Unlike many coaches, Crow- on is an optimist. ".We should be as good as nybody, I guess," he said. I'll be disappointed if we rcn't because we've certainly got the potential to win." The one thing the Chargers ack is tradition. They could tart building that this year.
