Buckey rolled left, held the ball until he was hit, and pitched it to Hooks, who went over untouched.

That's quite an honor." . Because ot his size -- 6-foot 'and only 155 pounds in high school -- Buckey was sought by only a , few colleges, including Kent State and Miami of Ohio.

"I think I pitched a good game and that.was just as crucial as this one will he." The Dodgers lost 3-2 in Saturday's opener, won 3-2 Sunday, then lost 3-2 Tuesday night after the scene moved from 3odger Stadium to the Oakland Coliseum. . . I wonder what the chances are of a fourth 3-2 game -- with ,he Dodgers winning?" mused first baseman Steve Garvey. "They haven't beaten us yet. We've beaten ourselves twice," said Joe Ferguson, a star in the first two games but charget with two errors while catching in the third as Oakland took its 2-1 edge in games. With two out and two on in the third, Reggie Jackson hit a bouncer several feet out from the plate.

"Messersmith pitched well in ,hat . game," Alston- snapped when a. newsman suggested that he hadn't. Messersmith worked eight innings, giving up five hits and two of file three runs off him were earned. Alston also replied angrily: "You must have been watchinf a different game than I did,' when someone asked why the Dodgers didn't hit well in Tues day night's game. "Maybe we didn't use gooc judgment in hitting the bal right at someone. I just hope we can hit the ball as well anc as hard in the next games.' The Dodgers had seven hits uesday night, two more than aklaml.

New Orleans Jazz To Make NBA Splash Thursday Evening By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The owners of the New Orleans Jazz, who paid $6.15 million for the distinction of having the National Basketball Association's newest expansion team, will get their first for. real look at what they got for their money when the Jazz meets the New York Knicks Thursday night as the NBA opens its 29th regular season. In Thursday night's only other game, Bill Russell's Seattle SuperSonics travel to Phoenix to take on the Suns. The other 14 NBA clubs begin play Friday and Saturday. The key man on the Jazz is guard Pete Maravicii, the league's No. 2 scorer last year when he averaged 27.7 points per game Ipr the Atlanta Hawks. To get the flashy Maravich, who played college ball al Louisiana State and is expected to be a big gate attraction in New Orleans, the Jazz had to ship a host of draft picks to Atlanta, as well as two playerr chosen from fhe NBA ex pansion pool. . ,, New Orleans Coach Seotty Robertson is counting heavily on Maravich, and Tuesday named him captain of the club. "I wanted a person who is in telligent and capable of actinf as a coach on fhe floor," sai Robertson. "Pete is the logica person. He quarterbacks our of fense, runs our fast break and is a proven NBA player." For their opener at Nev York's Madison Square Carder the Jazz will be far below ful strength. Four frontcourt play ers are sidelined -- Neal Wai ·nd Mel Counts with knee in Juries, Rick Roberson and Joh Block with muscle pulls. However, NBA veterans Shi iantz and Jim Barnett join laravich to Rive the Jazz a ery respectable backcourt. In the Knicks, New Orleans ·ill meet a team which has hanged markedly since last eason. Centers Willis Reed and erry Lucas and forward Dave DeBusschere have all retired nd guard Dean Meminger was ost in the expansion draft. The loss of Reed and BeBuss- ihere left gaping holes in New York's front line, particularly n the rebounding department. Center John Gianelli and for-, vard Phil Jackson will try to pick up the slack. Most of the Knicks' scoring is expected fo come once again rom the backcourt tandem of Walt Frazier- and Earl Monroe. Russell lias made a number of hey additions to the Seattle squad. Most prominent among hcse are 7-fool-4 center Tom Jurleson, the No. 1 draft choice from North Carolina Slate, and veteran guard Archie Clark, obtained from the Washington -formerly the Capital, formerly the Baltimore -- Bullets. The Sonic offense revolves around high-scoring forward Spencer Kay wood, who reported to training camp 10 pounds lighter than usual in an effort to improve his quickness .and stamina. Phoenix is counting heavily on a big season from Charlie Scott, the former American court star who missed 30 games last season because of injuries. The Suns suffered a preseason blow when it was diagnosed that top draft-choice John Shumate of Notre Dame had blood cloU in his lung, sidelining him indefinitely. Closeout.
