In a Cardinal victory here two nights before, Hrabosky had drawn the ire of Pirate fans with his lactic of leaving the mound and turning his back to the plate before each pitch to psyche himself. The Cardinals led 4-3 in the seventh Thursday night when Hrabosky, who had yielded one earned run in 26 previous appearances, strode from the bullpen nmidst thunderous boos. . Rich Folkers had allowed one-out singles by Manny Sang- uillen and Al Oliver in the seventh, and Willie Stargell was on deck. Hrabosky did his usual about- face and went into his psychological warmup despite continuing taunts and jeers from the stands. Two nights before he had said, "I Just f e e l I can't be scored upon," and he added that a reliver has to "hate people" while on the mound and use boos to summon concentration. And he seemed inspired by the boos as he fired his first pitch past Stargell for a swinging strike. {AP Wirepiioto) COLLISION AT SECOND BASE ...

Tough Patriot Defense Tackles Giants Sunday By THE-ASSOCIATED PRESS The National Football League has dipped into the collegiate ranks for almost all its players, some of its coaches and at least one team's defense. The New England Patriots went to school on the defending Super Bowl champion Miam: Dolphins last Sunday with a defense Coach Chuck Fairbanks developed on the campus. Fairbanks, hired by the Patriots in 1973 after a successful tenure with the University of O k l a h o m a , installed his "stack" defense against Miami, and the Dolphins -- undefeated in 1972, twice beaten in 1973 -are 0-1 in 1974. The new defense, which employs three men on the line and four linebackers, held Miami's running backs to 71 yards and gave a new look to the offense as New England quarterback Jim Plunkett completed 14 of 24 passes for 177 yards and one touchdown. Fairbanks hopes to give lessons in the successful operation of the "stack" to the New York Giants Sunday, when the two clubs meet in New Haven's Yale Bowl and the bell rings for the second week of the NFL season. The rest of Sunday's schedule has Miami at Buffalo, St. Louis at Washington, Pittsburgh at Denver, Kansas City at Oakland, New Orleans at Los Angeles, Minnesota at Detroit, San Diego at Cincinnati, San Francisco at Atlanta, the New York Jets at Chicago, Houston al Cleveland, and Green Bay al Baltimore. The Dallas Cowboys travel to Philadelphia to face the Eagles in a nationally televised game Monday night. O.J. Simpson, who sat out the entire second half last Monday night against the Raiders be cause of an ankle injury, is listed as a probable starter for this Sunday's match-up with M i a m i . Mercury Morris Miami's speedy outside runninj threat who did not play lasl week, will start Sunday. St. Louis, 1-0, kept -Philadelphia's potent passing attack out of the end zono lasl week, but the Redskins, 1-0, with Larry Brown, Larry Smith and Duane Thomas, are known to travel best on land. Quarterback Joe Gilliam justified his status as No. 1 Pittsburgh quarterback in leading the Steelers to a 30-0 rout of Baltimore. The Broncos, 0-1, dropped a 17-10 decision to Los Angeles but hold a 3-0 edge over Pittsburgh in previous meetings. Kansas Cily, 1-0, and Oakland, 0-1, each hope lo lilt this classic series its way after battling to a 14-14-2 standoff over the past decade and a half. Los Angeles, 1-0, brings its offensive festival hack home against the Saints, 0-1. John Hadl directs the R a m attack. Minnesota, 1-0, has lamed the Jons the past six years, beat- ng them 12 straight times. Cincinnati displayed an ex-1 plosive offense · against the Browns in last Sunday's 33-7 victory. San Diego, 0-1, rolled up 411 offensive yards despite losing to Houston 21-14. San Francisco, winless in preseason, used a late-game blocked punt that set up Sammy Johnson's nine-yard TD run to beat New Orleans. Atlanta, with quarterbacks Pat and Bob Lee both seeing action, generated little offense in a 24-0 loss to Dallas last Sunday. Jets quarterback Joe Namath threw for 210 yards and two touchdowns, but had four passes intercepted in New York's 24-16 loss to Kansas City. Chicago, 1-0, found a game-breaking passing combination in quarterback G a r y Huff to Charley Wade, who grabbed two passes for 116 yards. Cleveland, 0-1, is 8-0 against the Oilers, 1-0, but the Browns never heat them with Ronnie Coleman and George Amundson in the Houston backfield.

Green Bay quarterback Jerry Tagge threw three interceptions last week ffgainst Minnesota.
