Umpire Nick Colosi, who behind the plate Sat- urday when Ellis won his 15th game of the season, partially agreed. "A lot of the balls are too Ellis said Sunday. "And it affects me more than some pitchers because my hands are so small. "The leather on some balls is so smooth and slick it doesn't help when they nib it up." Colosi said there has been a problem all season with the texture. "There's a difference in the h o r s e h i d said Cinlosi. "Some are much move siiiny. Some ball players think they are smaller or larger because they are slicker, but that isn't true. You just can't grip them as well and it affects a pitcher like Ellis. Especially lu's curve ball."

Steve Biass, another member of the Pirates' underrated pitch- ing staff and the National League club's top comedian, shouted across the crowded room: "Walker, I know the so- lution for you every three weeks." It was meant to be funny, but it wasn't to Walker. The 27- year-old left-hander, the Pir- ates' big winner last season with 15 victories, hadn't started a gam.- since June 29, until he faced Los Angeles Dodgers Sun- day. Walker nearly pitched himself into the record books, handcuff- ing the Dodgers on one Ferguson's leadoff homer in the the Pirates completed a doubleheader sweep with a 7-1 victory, extending their winning streak to 11 games, longest in the majors this season. The Pirates, who increased their NL East lead to 1114 games over second-place Chi- cago Cubs, won the opener 3-2. Elsewhere Sunday, Chicago trimmed Montreal Expos 8-4, St. Louis Cardinals dropped the staggering New York Mets 8-5, Ssn Francisco Giants split with Atlanta Braves, winning the opener 5-4 in 12 innings and los- ing the nightcap 4-2, Philadel- phia and Houston also divided, the Phillies taking te first game 1-0 and the Astros win- ning the second game 10-7, and Cincinnati Reds blanked San Diego Padres 3-0 in their ning rain-shortened opener of a scheduled twinbill. Atlanta bombed Los Angeles 10-0 Saturday. In other games, Philadelphia took Chicago 5-2, Pittsburgh drubbed San Diego 9-2, Cincinnati nipped San Fran- cisco 3-2, Houston edged New York w-1 and Montreal downed St. Louis 5-3. ACCEPTS BLOW Walker was philosophical about losing his no-hitter and Ferguson had no remorse about breaking it up. "Sure, I've dreamed of a no- said Walker. "I'm sure every pitcher does. But there's nothing to feel bad about. If his homer had won it, then it would have hurt." Ferguson, who Walker said he had never heard of before Sun- day, said: "I guess maybe this is ore way of becoming known." The Pirate siuthpaw, bidding to throw the first no-hitter in Pittsburgh since the Pirates' Nicholas Maddox did it against Brooklyn Dodgers on Sept. 20, 1907 in a 2-1 victory, had al- lowed only three baserunners until Ferguson slammed the first pitch in the ninth over te left-field wall for his first ma- jor-league homer. In the opener, the Pirates broke a 2-2 tie In the ninth when Gene Alley led off with a triple tren raced home on Gene Clines' bases-loaded bouncer to second base. Cubs' riokie Ray Newman pitched perfect relief over the last five innings and gained his first major-league victory as Chicago pounded Montreal with a 17-hit barrage. The Cubs snapped a 4-4 tie in the bottom of the fifth wit Ron Santo's sin- gle delivering one run and Jim Hickman's sacrifice fly driving in another. Don Kessinger and Glenn Beckert singled in insur- ance runs in the eighth. DIETZ TAKES OPENER Dick Dietz won the opener ifc Giants with a 12th-inning homer off Atlanta's Bob Priddy. Four San Francisco relievers combined to retire the last 19 Brave batters. In the nightcap, the Braves built an early 4-0 lead, then held on despite Willie May's two-run omer, the 643rd of his career. The split enabled the Giants to increase their West lead over Los Angeles to seven games. Piladelphia rookie Ken Rey- nolds stymied Houston on four Boyer dislikes minors HONOLULU (AP) For a player who's been to the top, the road back can be a bit bumpy. That's the way Clete Boyer. former Atlanta Brave star, linds life with Hawaii Is- landers in the Pacific Coast League. "You never notice these things when you're fighting your way to tine said Boyer over a pre-game lunch in a local restaurant. "But when you come back down the differences are obvious. Boyer was released by the Braves after being openly critical of the National League club's management. He was also fined by commissioner Bowie Kuhn for betting on football' games. Boyer describes the bumpy road as dim lights, the wild- ness of young, hard-throwing .pitieners and strong wind. "The lights are bad. And you can't hit what you can't see. The pitchers throw hard, and they're erratic. You can never tell when you might get hit." THAT'S SCARY' "The other night a guy threw me five straight break- ing pitches, and then the next one comes right behind my head at 100 miles an hour. That's scary." These may be some of the reasons why Boyer has hit well-below .200 since joining the Islanders, compared witfi a lifetime major-league aver- age of .241. If his hitting has been below par, his fielding at third base has been flawless. Clete Boyer wants to go back to the majors, but lias little hope. "The races already are set. The margins are too wide. There might be some chance with need a good third baseman." Boyer, at 34, is rated by the baseball encyclopedia as the fifth-best third baseman in baseball history. And he fig- ures he's better than 20 other third basemen in the majors now. hits in the opener and got the only run be needed in the first inning.

"If we make says the Bal- timore third baseman, "then we'll be playing Oakland all right. "They've got too many good player's not to win." Robinson is doing his best to help the Birds nail down an East Division berth against the West Division champion this fall. Sunday lie made up for the Orioles' loss of power hitters Frank Robinson and BOOR Pow- ell by blasting n grand-slam home run in a 7-3 triumph over Oakland. It was the fiftli career slam for Robinson, whose hitting Is usually overshadowed by his fielding gems.

Wlu'lo Brooks Robinson ap- peared uncertain about tho Ori- oles' future duo to the injuries, Oakland manager Dick Wil- liams picked Baltimore as the probable East champs. "They should make said Williams. "And I hope we do." But he insisted Sunday's game was not a playoff pre- view, pointing out that the Ath- Ic-Ucs have some injuries to front-line players Reggie Jack- son, Bert Campancris and Angel Mangual.
