(AP) Frenchman Jean-Claude Killy raptured the world professional ski championship Sunday in his first year on the pro circuit, jocketed the top prize for finishing atop the standings, then admitted ha is "thinking strongly of quitting." Killy j' 29, won Sunday's final ;lalom event to withstand the jhalienge of giant slalom win- ner Harold Stuefer of Austria. Stuefer, 23. who had pulled svithin 13 points of Killy in the season standings by virtue of Friday's giant slalom triumph, was eliminated in the quarter- final round of the slalom by the top American in that event, for- mer Olympian Tyler Palmer of Kearsarge. N.H. Palmer. 22. raced Killy in the ?emi-finals but was no match fcr the aggressive French star. In the finals, Killy streaked ast defending champion Lasse Hamre of Norway in the first of '.he two final heats by 1.175 sec- inds, the widest victory margin the day. In the second run. Hamre, pressing to try to make up the difference, missed a gate, giving Killy the victory.

That meant that through three games of the infant season the champion A's had indeed lost them all. So have the New York Yan- I kees, listed as pre-seasc-n favor- ites in the American League East by one Nevada gambling house. Orlando Cepeda, Bos- ton's designated hitter, belted a leadoff home run off relief ace Sparky Lyle in the ninth inning as the Red Sox made it three in a row over the Yanks 4-3. Elsewhere, Detroit blanked Cleveland 4-0 and Kansas City edged California 6-5. The Mil- waukee-Baltimore and Chicago- Texas games were rained out. Sloppy defense helped do in the A's both Saturday and Sun- day. Ken Holtzman was touched for two unearned runs in the first inning after third baseman Sal Bando fumbled a bunt and Rod Carew's fly ball to centre field in the fifth dropped for a triple, leading to another. There was nothing even a team of Golden Glove winners could do about Minnesota's other run, which came on a third-inning homer by Danny Walton, the Twins designated hitter. CEPEDA ENDS SLUMP Boston DH Cepeda was 0-for- 11 when he stepped to the plate in the ninth inning and depos- ited a 1-1 pitch from Lyle in the screen atop the friendly left field wall. The Yankees took a 2-0 lead, includng Thurman Munson's s e c o n d-inning homer, and rookie George Medich held the Red Sox to one hit until the sixth, when he gave way to Lyle after they loaded the bases i with one out. One run scored on j Carl Yastrzemski's grounder i and Reggie Smith doubled home two more. The Yanks tied it in the ninth on a throwing error by Boston second baseman Doug Griffin.

On Sunday, the Voyageurs scored three times in two min- utes during the last period for a C-4 win over Reds while the Swords thumped Rich- mond Robins 7-4. Serge Lajeunesse tallied with left in the third period to give the Red Wings a 3-2 win over Hershey Bears and even their best-of-seven series 1-1. Barry Merrell scored with a minute left after assisting on three others to give the Ameri- cans a 5-4 win over Boston Braves after the Braves had taken a 2-0 series lead with a 6- 4 win Saturday in Boston. LEAD VANISHES At Providence, the Reds were leading 4-2 before Yvon Lam- bert. Peter Sullivan and Tony Featherstone scored the goals that turned the game around. Featherstone added an empty- net goal in the final minute. Bert Wilson and Billy Heindl had scored in a span of 19 sec- onds to snap a 2-2 tie just be- fore the Voyageurs started their surge.

Steve Richardson, Doug Rombough and Billy In- glis were the other Cincinnati marksmen. Connie McCulloch, Frank Spring, Chico Drolet and Jim Watson scored for the Robins who have yet to beat the Swords in 11 games this season. What could be the final game of the series is Tuesday night at Richmond. THREE FOR RICK Another stalwart for the Americans on Sunday was de- fenceman Rick Pagnutti who scored three goals. Pagnutti led AHL defencemen in goal-getting during the regular season with 18. Bob Kelly got the other Roch- ester goal while Rich Leduc tcllied twice for the Braves who got their other goals from Matt Ravlich and Pat W'estrum. Leduc aiso scored twice in Saturday's game. He opened the scoring on a first-period penalty shot and fired the win- ner early in the third period. The two clubs meet again Wednesday at Rochester. At Norfolk, Hugh Harvey twice put the Bears ahead but Brian Watts tied it each time- both goals coming on power play e f o r e Lajeunesse cashed in on a rebound. The contest was a chippy one as 73 minutes in penalties were handed out. The series resumes Tuesdav at Hershev. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Aside from the loss of Rob- erto Clemente, Pittsburgh Pi- rates haven't changed much. They keep doing things the hard is the best way for them. They won the National League's East pennant last year by pulling out almost half of their victories with late rallies. And Sunday, they continued to do what comes naturally with a 4-3, 5-3 doubleheader sweep over St. Louis Cardinals fash- ioned on comebacks. Losing 3-2 going into the ninth inning of the opener, they tied the game on Manny Sanguil- len's sacrifice fly and won it on Bob Robertson's home run in the 10th. In the nightcap, the Cards held a 2-1 edge until the Pirates struck for three runs on circuit shots by Milt May and Gene Alley in the fifth. In Sunday's otbar NL con- tests, Los Angeles Dodgers blanked San Diego Padres 4-0; Cincinnati Reds defeated San Francisco Giants 3-1; Montreal Expcs stepped Chicago Cubs 5-2 and Houston Astros beat At- lanta Braves 10-3 in the first game of a doubleheader before losing the second game 4-3 in 10 innings. Rain washed out a game between Philadelphia and New York. Saturday's NL scores in- cluded: New York 3, Phila- delphia 2; Chicago 3, Montreal 2 in 10 innings; San Francisco 7, Cincinnati 5 in 11 innings and San Diego 4, Los Angeles 3. RED IMPRESSED After watching his Cards fold before the Pirate rallies, St. Louis manager Red Schoendienst said that he no- ticed no discernible difference between this year's Pittsburgh team and last season's with Cle- mente. The all-star Pirate fielder died m a mercy mission plane crash last New Year's Eve. "They've got so many re- placements, for crying out said Schoendienst. "I don't think the loss of Clemente hurts them. "If they didn't have they'd have problems. But they have just as strong a team this year as last." Reliever George Culver choked off a bases-loaded-threat in the eighth inning and Joe Ferguson contributed a two-run double as Los Angels bested San Diego. Culver combined with Dodger starter Tommy Jolin to pitch an eight-hitter. The pair stranded 10 Padre run- ners. Cincinnati's Ross Grimsley whipped San Francisco for the fifth time in five career deci- sions although he needed last- out relief help from Pedro Bor- bon. The Reds got a pair of runs in the second off loser Tom Bradley, making his first start in the National League. Joe Morgan started the Reds' two-run first by reaching base on an infield error. He stole second, moved to third on two walks and came in on Tony Perez' sacrifice fly. Cesar Gero- nimo drove home Bobby Tolan with a single for the winning run. MANGUAL HOT Rookie Pepe Mangual drove in three runs with his first ma- jor league homer and a single to power Montreal past Chi- cago. Mangual tagged a two-run shot in the first inning and then singled home the winning run in the second. Cesar Geronimo clubbed a two-run homer and then added a pair of doubles in an eight-run Houston sixth inning to lead the Astros' opening-game triumph. Mike Lum was a one-man gang for Atlanta in the nightcap. He tied the game at 3-3 with a two- run homer in the ninth, then won it with a run-scoring single in the 10th. Howe runs fast mile OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Former Kansas State star Je- rome Howe ran the fastest mile ever by a professional tracks- ter, crossing the tape in four minutes flat and edging two- time Olympic gold medal win- ner Kip Keino Saturday night. Howe's feat came in the In- ternational Track Association's indoor meet against a field of milers that included, besides Keino, former Oklahoma State star Tom Von Ruden, former Kansas great and world record- holder Jim Ryun and Aus- tralia's George Scott, a 1963 Ol- ympian.
