Hunt, the pugnacious second baseman of Montreal Expos, was hit twice by second setting off a brawl as Ihe Expos pounded out ;in 11-0 decision over San Diego Padres. Bench, the National League's most valuable player, home-run leader and runs balted-in cham- pion in J970, quieted the boos at Cincinnati's Riverfront Stadium, slugging a two-run homer in the bottom of Ihe ninth inning lo give the Reds a 5-3 victory over S't. Louis Cardinals. Elsewhere in the National League, Houston Asiros de- feated Pittsburgh Pirates 6-5; Atlanta Braves edged Chicago Cubs 5-4; San Francisco Giants downed Philadelphia Phillies 5- 1, Los Angeles Dodgers blanked New York 4-0. Hunt recently broke the mod- ern major league record for get- ting hit by the pitch the most times in one season, eclipsinj the mark of 31 set by Louis Evans of St. Louis in 1910. Against the Padres Tuesday he was hit for the 33rd time this season by a .pilch from loser Steve Arlin in the third inning Hunt was nicked by another SLUGFEST Ron Hunt of Montreal Expos exchanges swings wiih catcher Bob Barlon of San Diego Padres during argument in fifth inning Tuesday ngiht after Hunt was hit by pitch for second time.

Revson, Hulme are safe bets NEW YORK (AP) Pete Ptcvson and Denis Hulme will deliver Team McLaren's fifth straight Can-Am sports car rac- ing title to England this year. To bet otherwise would be fool- hardy. Wilh four events already run in the scries of JO the two Mc- Laren drivers have finished oue-hvo in three and Iwo-ihree in the up a com- manding points lead in the proc- ess. Only a dramatic turn of for- tune appears to be in their way. Even tliis seems to be a remote possibility. Yet two more nearly opposite drivers, in evcryihing except absolute fearlessness and abil- ity hardly could have been se- lected to fly SlcLaren's bright orange colors Even the lale Bruce McLaren the giinpy-logged New Zca- lander who founded the team and won two titles before he died 18 months ago in a practice crash, would have smiled at the oddity. Revson, 31, is a handsome, boyishly eager bachelor. Mem- ber of the socially-prominent, wealth Kevlon cosmetics family in New York, Hcvson is deter- mined to become independent of lus relatives and has chosen rating as Ihe vehicle. He has won more than this year. Revson didn't really begin lo show his values until he joined McLaren this year. As the so-called No. 2 driver, he was calculated to develop under the watchful eyes of Hulme, the 35-year-old New Zealander who joined McLaren Plans unveiled for domed park TORONTO (CP) Plans for a million domed stadium in (lie Metropolitan Toronto bor- ough of North York were Hn- for contributions of 50 per cent from Ottawa and 30 per cent from the province.

Hulme, as described by his close associates, is a man of animal strength, a dogged de- sire to win and an unwillingness to suffer crowds or boring com- pany. Hevson shows up at more parlies in a month lhan Hulme visits in a year. By contrast to Revson's birth and upbringing, Hulme was born on a dairy farm in New Zealand's tobacco-producing area around Motveka. An easy-going family man, Hulme fiis nobody's idea of a swinging, hell-raising driver. JOINED BRABHAM He joined Jack Brahham's Formula 1 learn in 1S65 after travelling around in Europe in odd-Jot machinery for tliree years with lillle success. He the Grand Prix driving title in 1967, the same year he moved into McLaren's cars for a fling a( the Can-Am. He posted three Can-Am triumphs as McLaren's driving male, and placed second lo his close friend I in the point standings. Since then, Ilulme has won 10 Can-Am events, has won Ihe litle Iwice and personally has accounted for close to half a million dollars in money. He also is a regular Grand Prix driver for McLaren.
