I threw him a change-up and he did what a good hitter should do—he hit it up the middle.” Elsewhere in the major leagues, the Kansas City Royals downed the Texas Rangers 6-1; the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Houston Astros 4-1; the Chicago Cubs trimmed the Atlanta Braves 3-1, and the Boston Red Sox blanked the New York Yankees 2-0. “This was the best game I pitched this year,” said Sutton, who shut out the Padres on six hits opening day. “I was proud of this game because it’s something to pitch a one-hitter when you’re facing people like Grubb, Nate Colbert, Bobby To-lan and Willie McCovey. Grubb almost nicked Sutton, 5-2, for a second hit, but Dodger second baseman Dave Lopes ranged far to his right in the fifth to toss out the runner. Sutton, who owns two other als from the Red Sox in the off season. “I got the feeling I wasn’t helping the team. "I was pressing a little,” said Pattin, 1-1, “you know coming from a new team and everything.” The loss dropped Texas .003 percentage points behind Chicago and into a tie for second with California. “I wanted to do well,” added Pattin, who didn’t walk a batter and struck out five. “I’ve pitched well this year—once I was ahead 6-1 and got rained out” Pirates 4, Astros I Jim Rocker’s hitting got in the way of his pitching Thursday night. “I didn’t have my best stuff tonight,” Rooker said. “I was just able to keep them off balance and had some lucky 11 know he’s 40 but he’s still a breaks.

But you can’t win ev-ierytime.” Cubs 3, Braves I Shortstop Craig Robinson’s throwing error on a seventh-inning double play enable the Chicago Cubs to score a pair of runs and defeat Atlanta. Rick Iteuschel pitched a four-hitter, but Cub Manager Whiney Lockman pointed to Robinson’s error as the key. “The turning point,” said lockman, “was when the short-! 7 I stop was unable to get the ball out of his glove on that double play ball and then he couldn’t get a grip to throw it. Until the seventh, the game’s only run was set up by home run king Hank Aaron’s first stolen base of the season “He stole on me,” said Reus-chol. “I didn’t try to hold him on.” Aaron, who had a season-high of 31 bases in 1963, totalled only six in the past three years. Lockman said he wouldn’t have been embarrassed if the final score were 1-0, “but I’d have been damned angry. Sure struck out three and walk a batter. The Yankees, who Red Peppers didn’t!gles in the second, third and ; fifth, didn’t get a runner to sec-had sin- ond base. all that running in the eighth inning.” That’s when Rooker doubled and came around on Rennie Stennett’s single to finish the Pirates’ scoring. Rooker, 2-2, struck out four and walked four before Dave Giusti came on to face the Astros in the bottom of the eighth. Losing pitcher Dave Roberts, 5-3, thought he had his best stuff. “I felt good,” Roberts said. Red Sox 2, Yankees 0 Bernie Carbo broke up a scoreless pitching duel between Boston’s Luis Tiant and New York’s Pat Dobson with a seventh-inning homer. Dobson, 2-5, had set down the Red Sox on three hits until the seventh when he was touched for three more, including the homer and Dick McAuliffe’s run-scoring double.

It was, you see, the first meet of its kind ever held for schools in the area. Cedar Rapids-Marion to The team title went Washington high, which recorded five relay victories among its seven first places, with 91 points. That was 18 points better than second-place Marion. Kennedy, with 67 points, took third in the six-team meet. The team victory provided a pleasant suprise for Sandra Walton, the Washington coach . “I added up the points before the meet and thought we’d end up in a tie with Kennedy,” she explained. “But where I had fig ured points to Kennedy’s advantage, a few of our kids came through. “I just didn t expect them to do so well... I’d hate to single anyone out. Each girl, in her own right, performed very well.” Amen, especially in the relays where the Warriors were expected to be strong.

The Raiders will be losing two fine; quarterbacks to the World Football league—Darylc Lamonica and Ken Stabler- so they are anxious to look over possible replacements in summer camp Larry has been staying in good shape. The former C.R. Jeff and Iowa star worked out during the winter while at- .y Z'"..... tending Iowa. He played two seasons of Canadian ball but has been out of football the last two years. Probably the man most instrumental in signing Larry was Paul Roach, now one of I, John Madden’s aides at Oakland. He formerly was offensive coordinator at Wyoming and Wisconsin. He is a good friend of Larry’s dad, Ted Lawrence. The Hawaiians of the WFT, also were seeking to sign Larry. OOO —The week’s sports story that left us agog (that’s a handy word) was the one about opening day for practice runs at Indianapolis speedway. A 71-year-old assistant steward .suffered a broken hip and wrist when he fell trying to get out of the way of two big Indy racers. Get this: They were competing to see which would be first on the track. Terrible, terrible! Why can’t these drivers be thoughtful and polite like our passenger-car drivers, who never would think of trying to cut each other off at a stop sign or wedge in for a parking space? OOO —We’ve joined the ranks of sports writers who have been had by athletic impostors. Maybe you noticed a brief quote in last Sunday’s paper that we attributed to Paul Krause, former Iowa star who plays free safety for the Minnesota Vikings. Well, last week a friend of ours who operates a supper club called to tell us Krause was eating dinner in his place. He asked if we would like to talk with Paul and then called him to the phone. We thought it odd that Paul was back in C.R. so soon after being here a few weeks earlier, hut he explained he was working for a company that “is trying to buy a minority interest in Collins Radio.” We also thought it a bit unusual that we knew more about the recent National Football league rule changes than he did, because that’s his business. Anyway, a few days later Lt. Schultz of the C.R. police department called to see what we knew about the man who had posed as Paul Krause. He said the man stayed here two or three days in his masquerade. We hope he didn t sign any checks that the real Paul Krause will be stuck with. Police say such impersonations happen frequently, especially with pro football stars because they are popular. Not only does this give some of the impostors the opportunity to live high on the hog, but it seems to be very appealing to women—at least the kind they are trying to impress. OOO —Murray Olderman wrote a two-part series on the Hawaiian team that will enter the World Football league this season. The hackers originally chose the name Kona Gold for the team but hastily changed it to Hawaiians when they discovered Kona Gold was a local term for the highest grade of marijuana. The new trend in nicknames for sports teams is interesting—like the Chicago Fire, the Philadelphia Bell and the Southern California Sun. But maybe the most intriguing of all is the name of the Hawaii team in the World Team Tennis. It is called the Hawaii Leis. Well, a couple of other nicknames in the World Team Tennis are pretty good, too: The Houston E. Z Riders and the Detroit J>oves. OOO —Now that Bill Walton is gone, maybe Southern California can overtake UCLA in basketball. The Trojans keep trying. Recently they entertained Steve Malovic, 6-10 center who led Alhambra high of Phoenix to the Arizona prep title with a 28-point average. At the conclusion of his visit, USC assistant coach Jim Hefner drove Malovic to the airport. Three hours later he received a phone call from Phoenix. It was Malovic. He wanted to tell Hefner about the interesting gentleman who sat next him on the plane. He described him as friendly, courteous and very knowl-edqeable about basketball. The man’s name? Oh, Johnny Wooden. Baseball Standings NATIONAL LEAGUE W L Pct.
