"I've done everything I'm ca- pable of doing in these last two Montreal's 23-year-old right-hander said Thursday STE. JULIE DE VER- CHERES, Que. (CP) Hale Ir- win led by two strokes today going into the second round of the Canadian Open golf cham- pionship after shooting a course record of seven-under-par 65 Thursday. Grouped at 67, the old course record, were Forrest Fesler, Tom Weiskopf and Eubert Green. While Irwin was troubled by some early rain because of the glasses he wears, he still man- aged to fire "the best round of my career" as he travelled the front nine of the Richelieu Valley course in 33, counting four birdies after bo- geying the first hole. He was one stroke better on the back nine. Fesler, meanwhile, was 33-34, counting four birdies and a bo- gey on the front, and then car- ded two birdies on the final nine boles. Weiskopf fired 33 on the front tune and finished with a of birdies on the back nine, while Green shot a 34 on the front end WHA willing to add more teams LOS ANGELES (AP) The World Hockey Association plans to add teams in Denver and Phoenix and possibly In- dianapolis by the 1974-5 season, league president Gary David- son said Thursday. The year-old loop, with 12 teams, has already awardec Cincinnati a franchise for the 1974-73 season and Davidson said: "We have a lengthy list of persons who want WHA fran- chises. ATI applicants are given extensive study." He said the names of the per- sons awarded franchises in Denver and Phoenix will be re- vealed at a later date. and covered his final nine in 33. Of the top four golfers, Weis- kopf was the only one without a bogey throughout his round. Ir- win could easily have had a 63, but caught a bunker on the 350- yard, par-four first hole for a and then missed a 40-foot birdie putt on the 18th, leaving he ball two inches short of the role. Green said he has been using defending champion Gay Brewer's graphite-shafted spare driver since last April "and I've won approximately since then. "I missed some short birdie putts today and at No. 4 I played a mentally bad hole when I missed the green and took a bogey" Green said. Lee Treviao, winner of the Open the last time it was held here two years ago, was grouped with Lenny Thompson and Bob Lunn of the U.S., and Bobby Cole of South Africa with four-under-par 66s. Trevino was forced to seek medical aid for pain "just un- der the shoulder blade" mid- way through his round. He said he had not been hampered by the ailment. BOGEY COST Trevino took a disastrous night after firing a one-hitter, Jose Pagan's topped roller down the third base line in the fifth inning, in pitching the Expos to a 4-0 victory over Philadelphia Philles in the opener of a doubleheader. Called up from, the minors July 16, Rogers made his debut two days later and pitched eight innings against Houston Astros, allowing two runs on four hits. Although he came within a hair of becoming one of the few rookies ever to pitch a no-hitter, Rogers said it never crossed his umph over Calgary Jimmies in one semi-final Thursday. In the otter semi-final, the Tigers defeated Kindersley Slippers from Saskatchewan 6-4. double bogey on the par-four 16th. "My drive was in the rough then I was in a Tre- vino said. "I blasted out but over the green. I pitched to three feet and two putted. "There was a lot of sand be- hind the ball in the bunker and I caught too much of the ball and not enough of the sand." Tour rookie Ralph Schlicht of Madison, found himself in some good company at 69 with Bobby Mitchell, John Mahaffey and Ed Sneed. Arnold Palmer said his two- under-par 70 "was one of the worst rounds that I've had lately." Palmer and former Can- adian Amateur champion Bunky Henry were tied. SHOOTERS SCOREBOARD by PLAINSMAN SPORTS mind. "I'm not said the six-foot-two, "because the hit came too early in the game to be thinking of a no-hitter. "I just wanted to keep run- ners off the bases. I felt shaky at first, but my sinker made them bit a lot of ground balls. Pagan hit a good sinker. He just hit it softly in the right di- rection." MARSHALL IN RELIEF Steve Renko and Mike Mar- shall checked the Phillies 5-1 on six hits in the nightcap and Hal Breeden hit a home run. An adopted Missourian, Bob Gibson of St. Louis, also showet 'em. The veteran pitcher drove in five runs with a grand stem homer and a single while pitch ing the Cardinals to a 13-1 rout of New York Mets in their opener. St. Louis also took the nightcap 2-1. In other National League games, Los Angeles Dodgers shaded Houston 3-1, Chicago Cubs outlasted Pittsburgh 10-9 in the completion of an April 21 suspended game but the Pirates took "the regularly scheduled contest 3-2, Cincinnati Reds downed Atlanta Braves 5-3 but lost the nightcap 64 and San Francisco Giants won two from San Diego Padres, 10-2 and 6-5 in 10 innings. "I almost moved three steps Bailey said. "But Steve was ahead on the count and I've seen Pagan hit a lot of two- strike pies, so I decided to play it honest." The Cards' sweep of the Mets increased their lead in the East Division to 1% games over the Cubs. Gibson became baseball's win- ningest active pitcher with his 236th career triumph. Texas Manager Whitey Her- zog bates to get enthusiastic about his club's infrequent American League victories be- cause something always occurs lie added Ranger gen- eral manager Joe Burke. And, if Texans need a reason or a celebration they could -boose .from the Mowing high- ights: Bibby threw a two-rat- er at the Angels in the first game and a five-run seventh in- ning chased California's Nolan lyan from the mound.

The sweep gave Texas five triumphs in a row. their longest winning streak of the season. In otter American League doubleheaders, Chicago White Sox won the opener 7-4 and then Kansas City Royals took the fi- nale 1-0, Baltimore Orioles woo the first game 8-4 and Cleve- land Indians captured the night- cap 6-4 and Minnesota Twins swept Oakland A's 5-1 and 7-5. In single games, New York Yankees edged Milwaukee Brewers 1-0 ia 12 innings and Meanwhile in Edmonton a 10-1 victory over St. Albert has given Leduc Oilers the North- ern Alberta Baseball Associa- tion title. Doug Kadatz slammed a Detroit Tigers Red Sox 6-5. shaded Boston Delvecchio talks wth Houston Wayne Commodore took the spotlight of the two-day meet by hitting four consecutive home runs in the Lakers' vic- tory over the Jimmies..He also had a double as he drove in seven runs. Team-mate Marty Maxwell, selected the most val- uable player from the eight four hits, scored three runs and drove in two in the final. Marty's brother, Bandy, pitched the first 6 1-3 innings for the win, allowing only six hits and two runs. Rod Taylor, winner of the semi-final, re- lieved Maxwell and allowed the final two Tiger runs on a homer by Brian Belts. Taylor, who seems to be stronger in relief roles of late, took over from starter Al Fer- chuk in the first game Thurs- day and picked up the win. Manager Ron Taylor went to the popular lefthander again in the second game in the sev- enth inning and he kept Max- well's victory intact. Almost overlooked in the af- ternoon affair because of Com- modore's heroics, was a five- for-five afternoon for Bryan Maxwell Rob Roy also chipped in with a pair of home runs Thursday, one in each game. Les phrn, who threw the final three innings of the Tiger's 64 semi-final win, took the loss, giving up the first four Leth- bridge runs and six bits. He was relieved by Tim Brady and Ken Ewashik who allowed two runs. The Lakers will now travel back south to compete in the Calgary Invitational Baseball Tournament this weekend.

He was carried off the field on a stretcher and taken to the Greater Baltimore Medica Centre. The veteran left-hander was treated for a bad bruise around the left ear and a wound that will require some stitches. McNally was felkd in the first inning of a twi-night dou- bleheader by a liner from the bat of Cleveland's Chris Chamb- liss. The ball bounced back to- ward the plate as McNally fell to the ground. It appeared the ball had been deflected slightly by the pitcher's glove. A witness to the accident was evekjxl broadcaster Herb Score, whose brilliant career was cut short by a liner off the bat of New York's Gil McDougald on May 7, 1957.
