I'M BOUNO THAT'S TWfTKXjSLE HSIiNCA U Aft CAN'T BEUEVC ElSC A5SOLUTEIY wsmve Pittsburgh Pirates could have the edge on paper By GLENN COLE The CiMdiH PreH What will the in the National League's East Division do for an encore after last year's torrid finish? While it is unlikely that there will be .five teams battling for the top rung in the division as was .the case in. 1973. it would appear that this year's race should be close. There are many "ifs" sur- rounding the teams in the divi- sion, but on paper, at least, it would appear that Pittsburgh Pirates could have the edge. The hurt by incon- sistent starting pitching last season, have shored up their hurling staff with the addition of left handers Ken Brett from Philadelphia' Phillies and Jerry Reuss from Houston Astros. It is the first time in several years that the Bucs have had quality southpaw starters. Pittsburgh is going to need good seasons out of right handers Steve Blass. Bob Moose and Dock Ellis as well, particularly Blass. whose win total was three last season compared with 19 in 1972. The Pirates still have a solid hitting attack led by Willie Stargell, who cracked 44 home runs last season and drove in 119 runs, both league-leading marks. Pittsburgh also had quality hitters in catcher Manny Sanguillen, third base- man Rich Hebner and Al Oli- ver, a- first baseman- outfielder. ,While hitting appears to be the Pirates' forte, New York Mets will once again rely on the strong arms of their four starting pitchers Seaver, Jon Matlack, Jerry Koosman and George combined to win 59 of the 82 games the Mets won in 1973. But the Mets are vulnerable when it conies to hitting. They boast that Rusty Staub, Cleon Jones and John Milner are their power hit .279 with 15 home runs last year, Jones had 11 homers and a .260 batting average and Milner led the club with 23 home runs but hit onlv .239. The surprise of 1973 was Montreal Expos, and they could well be the shock of 1974. The Expos-have two solid starters in Steve Rogers and Steve Renko, but if they are going to go anywhere they are going to have to get better and more consistent efforts out of Mike Torrez, Ernie McAnally and Balor Moore, something which did not happen in.spring training. Montreal is much more solid deferrsively with the acquisition of centre fielder Willie Davis and the insertion of 23-year-old Jim Cox at second base. Davis with his speed on the basepaths and sharp bat con- trol, adds another dimension offensively to go along with Ken Singleton, the Expos' top hitter last year, and Ron Fairly, one of the best clutch hitters in baseball, who will be playing almost every day for the Expos at first. STILL HAVE JOE St. Louis Cardinals still have the powerful bat of Joe Torre, the speed of Lou Brock and the strong right arm of Bob Gibson, but they are all a year older. Aside from them, the Cards seem to have little else except for outfielder Reggie Smith, acquired from Boston Red Sox during the off- season. The Cardinals biggest prob- lem appears to be their pitch- ing, the same type of problem that will hurt Chicago Cubs The Cubs have two good young pitchers in Burt Hooton and Rick Reuschel, but both have been inconsistent during the last few years, as has vet- eran right hander Milt Pappas. Gone to Texas Rangers is Ferguson Jenkins of Chatham. Ont.. Chicago's premier starter for sevtral years, and his loss will hurt badly. The Cubs also disposed of third baseman Ron Santo and second baseman Glenn Seckert. so it figures to be a rebuilding year for Whitey Lbckman's club. The Phillies were not involved in last year's pennant fight and it's highly unlikely they will be this year either. Rather, they will be battling the Cubs for fifth. Johnson smacks two home runs ASSOCIATED PRESS Dave Johnson hit two home runs, leading a five-homer at- tack that swept Atlanta Braves to a 7-0 exhibition baseball victory over Baltimore Orioles Monday. Johnson smashed solo shots in the second and sixth innings in support of the combined four-hit pitching of Ro'ric Welterlich, Herman's advance Welterlich and Herman's Upholstery advanced to the "A" finals of the Men's Broomball League championship playoffs Sunday night.

Cleveland scored five runs in the first and added a run in the second as Oscar Gamble stroked two successive triples. Roger Freed, already reas- signed to a Cincinnati minor league club, hit two home runs and added a double and a single to help the Reds crush Pittsburgh Pirates 15-9. Chicago White Sox came from behind with three runs in the aixth 'inning and got three scoreless innrngs from reliever Wayne Granger to edge Minnesota Twins 4-3. The Twins scored all their runs in the fourth off Terry Forster. Winning pitc'her Mike Torrez hit a bases-loaded triple off Steve Carlton and Montreal Expos blasted Philadelphia Phillies 7-1.
