Liverpook, sure of runner-up .spot in the First Division table, have 55 points from 40 matches and cannot finish with more than 59 points. ASSOCIATED PRESS The old gag used to go some- thing like this: Washington- first in war, first in peace and last in baseball's American League. But now Washington Senators, formerly the Texas Rangers, are first in the AL West by half a game over Oakland Athletics. Their 3-1 win over Boston Red Sox Wednesday night put. the club in undisputed possession of first place for the first time, in either Washington or Texas uni- forms, since 1948. Elsewhere, New York's Graig Nettles tied the AL record for most April homers by hitting his 10th in the Yankees' 4-3 victory over Kansas City Royals, Chicago White Sox whipped Mil- waukee Brewers. 7-2, Baltimore Orioles edged California Angels 4-3, Detroit Tigers downed Minnesota Twins 8-4 and Oakland trounced Cleveland Indians 9- 2. Rangers 3 Red Sox 1 The Rangers have sent Fer- guson Jenkins, 30, to the mound five times since they acquired him in an off-season deal with Chicago Cubs. Each time the native of Chatham, Ont., has pitched a complete game and his latest made him the first AL hurler to post four victories this season. "I just thrive 'on Jenkins said. "I think I'm strong enough to get in 35 to 40 starts for this club. I really love the enthusiasm on this team. They are 25 great guys." r Lenny Handle's pop fly in the seventh inning became a tie-breaking two- run double when Boston left fielder Carl Yastrzemski and centre fielder Juan Beniquez couldn't decide who should catch it. Yankees 4 Royals 3 Nettles homer was the 10th in 17 games but it was Roy White's double following a walk to Jim Mason in the seventh inning that produced the winning run. Thurman Munson hit a two-run homer for the winners. Nettles equalled the mark for April homers set by Baltimore's Frank Robinson in 1969. The major league record by Pittsburgh's Willie Stargell in 1971. Nettles also has driven in at least one run in 10 consecutive games, one short of the major league record shared by Babe Ruth and Mel Ott. White Sox 7 Brewers 2 Eddie Leon singled in what turned out to be the winning run with his first hit of the season.

Pirates finally win two, home runs did the trick ASSOCIATED PRESS Pittsburgh Pirates, picked by some to win the National League's East Division title, have looked like anything but winners so far this baseball season. In fact, it took them 14 games before they could put victories back to back. They finally did it Wednesday night, using an old, reliable Richie Hebner, Willie Stargell and Manny Sanguillen hit home runs that gave the Pirates a 5-3 victory over Atlanta Braves and moved them out of the basement for the first time this year. In Wednesday's other games, Cincinnati Reds edged Chicago Cubs 1-0, Houston Astros swamped St. Louis Cardinals 94, Los Angeles Dodgers defeated Philadelphia Phillies 6-1, and San Diego Padres beat New York Mets 4-3. Montreal's game at San Francisco was rained out. Pirates 5 Braves 3 Hebner hit a first-inning solo homer and Stargell had a two-run homer in the fifth. Sanguillen wrapped it up in the- eighth with a two-run clout. Reds 1 Cubs 0 George Foster drew a bases-loaded, two-out walk from Bill Bonham in the bottom of the ninth inning to force home the only Cincinnati run. Dave Concepcion doubled, Cesar Geronimo drew an in- tentional walk, Terry Crowley batted for winner Jack Billingham and forced Concepcion at third, Pete Rose popped up, then Joe Morgan singled to load the bases and bring Foster to the plate. Astros 9 Cards 4 Pitcher Dave Roberts slugged a two-run homer and Tommy Helms drove in four runs in the Astros' rout.

The Celtics meet Milwaukee Bucks in the opening game of the best-of-seven final Sunday in Milwaukee. Wednesday's win gave the Celtics, defending NBA cham- pions, a 4-1 win in the best-of- seven Eastern Division final. Havlicek, who kept the Celtics close with 19 points in the first half, finished with 33, including 10 in the final 12 minutes as Boston broke away from an 80-79 lead at the three-quarter mark. Cowens had six points and a couple of key assists while completely dominating the boards after picking up his fifth personal foul with the fourth quarter less than two minutes old and the Celtics still nursing a one-point lead. The big centre also came back after sitting out much of the third period to score two crucial three-point plays as the Celtics fought back from a 52-45 halftime deficit. Cowens' layup and free throw after being fouled by John Gianelli in the closing seconds of the third quarter put Boston in front to stay. Veteran forward Paul Silas gave Boston a big shot in the arm in the third period as he grabbed 11 rebounds, many of them with Cowens sitting on the bench, and the veteran also contributed eight points in the big spurt. With his 33 points, Havlicek, the Boston team captain, boosted his playoff total for his career to an even Cowens and Don Chancy each had 19 points for Boston, while Silas had 14 and Don Nelson 13. Jackson led the Knicks with 27, with Walt Frazier contrib- uting 23 and Bill Bradley 17. Rader and Helms and Roberts' homer.

Dodgers 6 Phillies 1 Jim Wynn drove in two runs with a single and a homer, his seventh, and Willie Crawford tripled for two runs to back Don Sutton's seven-hit pitching for Los Angeles. Sutton, 4-1, lost his bid for his second shutout of the season when Mike Schmidt singled for the Phillies' lone run in the seventh. Padres 4 Mets 3 Nate Colbert hit a two-run homer in the first inning, then broke a tie with a ope-out, bases-loaded grounder in the ninth for the Padres, dumping the Mets into the East Division basement.

Will Jets go? WINNIPEG (CP) Ken Galanchuk, city councillor and member of the Winnipeg Enterprises Corp., said Wednesday if the city loses the World Hockey Association Jets the corporation alone would lose more than a year. The corporation operates Winnipeg Arena where the Jets have played for the last two seasons. He was reacting to the decision Tuesday night by the provincial government not to approve a interest free loan for a group of Winnipeg businessmen trying' to purchase the Jets franchise and keep it in the city as a community owned, non profit corporation. The city had already approved a similar loan, on the condition the province do likewise, and Premier Ed Schreyer had earlier said the province would go along if the city did. Galanchuk said Schreyer's statement that the loan was denied partly because the province was being asked to subsidize annual operating losses, was "nonsense." "The conditions laid down by the city said only that the two governments 'may' share in operating losses, it was not he said. Deputy-Mayor Dick Wankling said he was astounded by the decision, terming it a "cop-out." Councillor Galanchuk said if the Jets leave the city, the province will lose more money than if it provided the loan. He said the losses would include revenue from personal income taxes paid by the players, corporate taxes from the owners. ANDY CAPP ME A IS NOTE T1 THAT OVER THESE, THE IN THE Gray feels apathetic TORONTO (CP) Clyde Gray of Toronto says he is having trouble getting interested in his Id-round welterweight bout here Monday against Art Kettles of Asbury Park, but he doesn't dare relax. "Sure, it's tough to get really up for fights like this one when a shot at the title is what I really said Gray. "But I have to train hard and be ready, because a loss to a fighter like Kettles would drop me down the list, away from a fight with the champion. Gray, 26, is the Canadian and Commonwealth welterweight champion and the No. 1 contender for the world title held by Jose Napoles of Mexico. Gray lost a decision to Na- poles here last year in his first shot at the world title. He's been itching for another try at Napoles since but, in the meantime, must try to keep sharp with fights against scrappers such as Kettles, who has had only 15 wins and two draws in 37 fights.
