Deadlocked 4-4 in Hie bottom of the 10th inning, reliever Uau McGinn got the first two Astros, including Jim Wynn. It was Wynn's home run in the eighth inning that had lieu1 the conlest.

If either of Uie two banisters decides the WilA is in anyway unsound, they will direct so many players away from it that" the ensuing problems will be too much for the new league to sustain. Casper's key client Is goalie Bernie Parent who already is on record as agreeing lo sign with Miami's Screaming Eagles of the WHA. Simply by changing Ins mind, Casper could torpedo the operation. Woolf's prize is Derek Sanderson of thn Brurns, but Uie Boston lawyer also handles goalie Gerry Cheevers. left.wing Vic Hadfield of the Rangers and a few other good ones. So far, both Woolf and Casper have been friendly toward the If the friendship continues several key NHLers ore likely to jump. While most of the attention has been focused on Toronto attorney Al Eagleson and Woolf, Casper has quietly b'.-.ilt himself an empire of NHL clients; so much so that two en- tire teams, the Detroit Red Wings and Buffalo Sabres con- ferred with him en masse at Ihe end of the season. lie now is in a position lo literally deliver dozens of quality players to Ihe W1IA.

Look for Emile Francis to step out as general manager and coach of the New York Rangers, remain manager and appoint center Phil Goyette as coach. The dual job has been a burden to Francis despite his two helpful lieutenants, Lou Passador and Steve Brklacich, both of whom have managing and coaching potential. By the end of next season every NlfL player but a handful will be represented by an attorney, and that goes right down to the most obscure third liner. Centre Bill Clement of the Philadelphia Flyers said it for his colleagues the other day: "It's not a question of whether I'll have a lawyer rep- resent me, it's just a question of who." Wynn brought them back again n the eighth with his third lomer of Ihe year. Cincinnati had a 7-1 lead into ihe eighth inning when the Bucs scored twice, tlien pushed across three more runs in the jottom of the ninth before re- liever Pedro llorbon got Boh Robertson for Ihe game-ending out on a fly ball with the bases loaded. It preserved Gary Nolan's third victory of (he season. Bobby Tolan drove In three runs with "a homer and single but it was Dave Cnncepcion's bases- loaded single in the seventh that drove in what proved to be the decisive two runs. Hick Wise finally picked up his first victory as a Cardinal after two defeats and did it by knocking in Ihe go-ahead runs in St. Louis' five-run second in- ning. The former Philadelphia bur- ler von it despite successive ho- mers in the first liming by Ralph Can- and Hank Aaron of the Jraves. A two-aut, two-run double by Tim McCarver put Philadelphia on (op C-l in thn top of the )0th before the Giants roared back, with Bobby Bonds capping the rally with a tie-breaking, two- run homer.
