For one stretch of holes, at least, the eighth through the 14th, Player looked like the best practitioner of the craft in the world, canning six birdies in the space of seven holes and reeling off five consecutive threes. Have I ever done the dark-eyed South African re- peated a question afterward. "In the Masters, I had six bird- ies in a row. That's better, I think."

DEAN WAGNER Ollico 365-D6B1 393-6968 By HAL BOCK Associated Press sports Wrifer It didn't take Jim Northrup long to get himself acclimated to his new surroundings in the National League. Purchased by Montreal from Detroit earlier this week, Northrup at first balked at re- porting, then showed up in time for Friday night's game at Houston. The Astros wish he had waited a little longer. All the veteran outfielder did was stroke a game-tying home run in the seventh inning, and a single touching off the winning rally in the ninth as the Expos nipped Houston 4-3. Elsewhere in the National League, St. Louis opened its East Division lead to games by defeating Los Angeles 5-3 while second-place Philadelphia was losing 3-2 in 11 innings to Atlanta. The Dodgers maintained their 5. game lead in the West when second-place Cincinnati dropped a 4-1 decision to the New York Mets. Pittsburgh thumped San Diego 7-3 and San Francisco shut out Chicago 3-0. Northrup wasn't so sure that after 14 years with Detroit, he wanted to start fresli with new team. But then, he never knew it would be this easy. "Baseball is a hard game no matter where you're said Northrup, after making it look awfully easy against the Astros. "I was just trying to do well. You hate to go out and play for a new club and stink." He needn't have worried about that problem. He was on base four straight limes, reach- ing on an error and walking be- fore tagging his homer in the seventh against Don Wilson and then singling in the ninth. The score was 2-2 in the ninth when Northrup laced his second hit of the game. He moved up on a walk to Ken Singleton and then scampered home on Barry Foote's single. Ron Hunt sin- gled home another run. Northrup's debut naturally pleased Montreal Manager Gene Mauch. "Anybody who's been a quali- ty player as long as Jim Norlli- nip ifi highly desirable ns far as I'm said Mauch. "He's had some pretty tough arguments in the pasl about platooning. I'll see how il works out." So far, it's working out just fine for the Expos. Cards 5, Dodgers 3 Ted Simmons' grand slam home run carried St. Louis over Los Angeles, the third straight loss for the Dodgers, NL West leaders. Simmons connected on the first pitch from Geoff Zahn after the; Dodger rookie had walked Joe Torre to load the bases. "I was just looking for a said Simmons, who cel- ebrated his 25th birthday Fri- day. "I just told myself he was going to have to get the ball over the plate because he couldn't walk anybody else with the tying run at third. It was a nice way to celebrate."

McKay also placed third in the senior 100 butterfly.

In his first two starting appearances as a Red Sox pitcher, turned in shut-out performances. It wasn't until the fifth inning of his third game that he allowed a run. Boo won 21 games that year and 25 games the next, only to run into arm trouble and be gone from baseball in just four more years.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
