For Greg Luzinski there's plenty of it left, but he' playing as though he's trying to aeat Hammerin' Hank to Babe Ruth's home run record. Aaron had a productive nigh at the plate in Philadelphia Wednesday night with a pair of singles and a double. But he didn't get his 24th homer of the season and 697th of his career which would have moved him within 17 of the Babe's once 'unbeatable" rec ord of 714. The 696 puts Aaron a mere 660 ahead of Luzinski. But for the last two nights, Phila- delphia's 22-year-old outfielder has been outshining Atlanta Braves' famous slugger. Luzinski hit a homer in defeat Tuesday night. Wednesday night, he hit a pair, the seconc one a two-run shot in the sev- enth inning to catapult the Phillies to a 6-5 victory over the Braves. EXPOS NIP REDS In other National League games, Montreal Expos nosed out Cincinnati Reds 4-3, San Francisco Giants downed Chi- cago Cubs 7-3, Houston Astros belted New York Mets 7-1 Pittsburgh Pirates crushed San Diego Padres 10-2 and Los An- geles Dodgers tamed St. Louis Cardinals 3-1. Only three games are sched- uled at night with Houston at Philadelphia, St Louis at Los Angeles and Pitts- burgh at San Diego. "I guess they totalled Philadelphia manager Danny Ozark said of LuzinsM's three most recent round-trip- pers which gave him 15 for the season. Home runs, though, aren't the only thing Luzinski is working on. In the last few weeks, he's raised his average from a me- diocre .207 to a respectable .270. "I guess I'm trying to make up for lost he said. guess I missed the first part o the season." The victory went to reliever Ken Brett, pitching for the first time since June 23. Three days after that, in a pinch-running role against St. Louis, the left- hander collided with Cardinals catcher Tim McCarver and bruised his left shoulder. Pitcher Steve Renko may have found the secret to win- ning with there's a job to be done, do it yourself. FINDS HIS OWN WAT Last Saturday night he drove in a pair of runs with two of his three bits in a victory over Houston. And on Wednesday night, be got ths key hit in a two-run seventh inning that beat the Reds. Pepe Frias led off the inning with a triple, then Renko dou- bled for the tie-breaking run. A Few minutes later, be scored on rial Breeden's single. It proved to be the winning run, offsetting Bobby Tolan's homer in the ninth. "I didn't think I bit the ball hat Renko said. "It just sept drifting on Tolan and then it dropped in between him and Johnny Bench." It enabled him to chalk up his ninth victory of the season against five losses. Last year he wound up with a dismal 1 -10 record. Ed Goodson had a pair of home runs. His second of the game highlighted San Fran- isco's five-run seventh inning that sent the Cubs down to de- eat.

Right-bander Nelson Briles, taking a cue from Rsnkc, drove in a pair of runs and Willie Stargell hit a reocrd setting homer for Pirates in their rout of the Padres. Stargells' homer was his 25th of the season, giving him a share of the major league lead. And it was the 302nd of his ca- reer with the Pirates. That broke the club record held by Ralph Kiner. Don Sutton, 11-5, taking over the league strikeout lead with 130, fanned a dozen Cardinals and got all the backing he needed from Willie Davis, who cracked a two-run homer for the Dodgers, who managed only two other hits all night off Bob Gibson and reliever Diego Segui. ANDY CAPP WALK ME 1b THE BUS S1BP, ANDY? Munson helps Mil threat Yankees back on top By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS I started the game in first place Fritz Peterson and Sparky Lyle combined to pitch a four- hitter, but the best throw New York Yankees made Wednesday was by catcher Thurman Mun- son. With the Yanks clinging to a 2-1 lead, Chicago White Sox had runners on first and second with none out in the ninth. Lyle came on in relief of Peterson, and pinch-hitter Tony Muser stepped to the plate with orders to bunt. Lyle fired a hard slider and Muser missed. After hesitating, Munson fired to shortstop Hal Lanier, picking pinch-runner Joe Keough off second. Lyle then struck out John Je- ter, who came in to bat for Mu- ser, and threw out Carlos May attempting to bunt to record his 23rd save of the season, tops in the majors. The victory, combined with Boston Esd Sox, 3-0 loss to Min- nesota Twins enabled the Yan- kees to move back into first place in the tight American League East pennant race. fii other games, Oakland A's beat Cleveland Indians 9-3, De- troit Tigers whipped Texas Rangers 14-2, Baltimore Orioles defeated California Angels 7-1 and Milwaukee Brewers beat Kansas City Royals 8-1. The Yankees are at home to- day with Kansas City and Bos- ton entertains Texas in two key games. Elsewhere, Oakland is at Milwaukee, California hi De- troit, Baltimore visits Chicago and Cleveland is at Minnesota. "We dMn't have a play on, but Maxie (Lanier) made a hel- luva said Munson, who played college ball at Kent State on the same team as Steve Stone, 4-5, the losing pitcher for the White Sox. Bon Blomberg homered in the second inning and Lanier dou- iled and Horace Clarke singled him home in the fourth for the Yankees' runs. The Red Sox, meanwhile, who by three percentage points, iwere stymied by the six-hit pitching of Minnesota's Bert Blyleven, 12-8. Catfish Hunter kept Oakland atop the AL West and raised his record to 14-3 with a four-hitter against Cleveland. Sal Bando homered for the A's, Jack Brohamer and George Hendrick for the Indians. Jim Northrup slammed a pair of three-run homers and drove in eight runs as the Tigers wal- loped Texas. The runs were the most scored by Detroit since July 12, 1969, and eight RBI were the most for a Tiger player since Northrup hit a pair of grand slam homers on June 8, 1968. B o o g Powell's two-run Nolan Ryan's wild- the Orioles to vic- tory. Ryan, California's-major league strikeout leader with 203, fanned 11 in six innings, but walked six. Rookie batterymates sparked Milwaukee to victory. Eddie Rodriguez, 2-0, pitched a five- hitter while catcher Darrell Porter hit a three-run homer and drove in another run with a bases-loaded walk. METAPHORICALLY SPEAKIN' Race results Tarnava ousts defending champ NELSON, B.C. (CP> De- fending champion Don Barth, of Reguia, and five-time win- ner Hector Gervais of St Al- bert, Alta., dominated early play Wednesday in the Champ- ionship round of the 29th Nel- Blazers wallop locals The Nanton Blazers had the' sharp eye and doubled the score 22-11 over the Lethbridge Na- tive Sons in Southern Alberta Major Lacrosse League play Wednesday night. The visitors picked up an early 6-1 lead after the first period and extended it to 13-7 at the end of the second. Bob Monkman led the Blaz- ers with six goals while Boyd Hunter added four. Ken Boychuk hit the score- son Midsummer Bonspiel but were defeated by the mid- way point. Jacko Tarnava, of Leth- bridge, pased Barth 12-4 dropping the Reguia Tartan dub rink into the D event and ending the Saskatchewan crew's winning streak in the playoff at nine games.
