QUINELLA: 9.80 Frazier ready to fight All LOS ANGELES (AP) Heavyweight boxing champion Joe Frazier says he'd like to have his next title fight against Muhammed All in Los Angeles and he wants a million guar- antee or 65 per cent of the pro- ceeds. Alt, beaten by Frazier in New York when they first met, hac suggested Houston's Astrodome as the site of their rematch, ex- pected to be held next year. During a brief stay in Los An- geles, Frazier told reporters: "I had some of my first big fights here and I'd like to return. I'm in condition and ready." nd Chicago White Sox blankec ew York Yankees 4-0. Oakland thletics at Baltimore Orioles nd Washington Senators innesota Twins were rainec ut. The Tigers had gone into thi ninth inning against Kansas ity trailing 9-6 despite a grand-slam homer by Nora ash and a pinch shot by Die IcAuliffe. Singles by Gates rown and Al Kaline with onall back 35 yards to the Hamil- ;ou 47, virtually shaking off two would-be ladders at the 25. Gabler's pinpoint passing with tomebrew fullback Dick Wes- lowski crashing through for short-yardage gains moved the Ticats into striking territory, culminating in Fleming's six- pointer, the fourth such catch lie had made in the final sequ- ence. Almost overlooked in the ex- citing final five minutes of the game was the CFL career mark established by Tommy Joe Cof- fey, Hamilton's place-kicking- pass-catching end, in the first quarter. Coffey entered the game just nine yards short of the career passing yardage record held by Hal Patterson, former Ticat and Montreal Alouette great. Cof- fey's first reception went for just over nine yards, surpassing Patterson's and the Ham- ilton veteran went on to add 22 more yards to his record. SCORES TD Coffey took an eight-yard scoring pass from Zuger at the goal line with just seconds re- maining in the first quarter, converted, then added a 41-yard field goal at of tht second quarter to account for Hamil- ton's scoring at the half. Dave Cutler's 13-yard field goal effort at of the sec- ond quarter went wide but soared into the stands behind the Hamilton end zone for Ed- monton's point. Zuger's erratic passing ac- counted for both Edmonton's touchdowns. Law grabbed the ball out of the air after it had been tipped by Coffey and streaked 54 yards for the first score. Culler con- verted. Law's second theft, at the Ed- monton 25 wilh about five min- utes left, started the Eskimos to their go-ahead major score. Quarterback Don Trull tossed successive scoring strikes of 18 and 17 yards to George Mc- Gowan and Jim Thomas, then a draw play through a hole in the Ticat defensive wall vacaied moments before by Moeca, al- lowed Houmard to ramble 35 yards to the Hamilton 12. Trail's pass to homebrew end Ted Warkentin at the Ticat two set the stage for Houmard's two-yard dive into the end zone, Cutler's convert and the wild Hamilton finish.

Sparky Anderson, the Beds' manager, not only agrees, but goes even further. He says Rob- erts is the best right- or left-handed-that he has seen all season. Roberts, owner of the Na- tional League's best earned run average among starting pitch- er's, lowered his ERA to 2.15 Thursday night, throttling the Reds 5-1 with a sparkling five- hitter. "I've seen harder said Anderson, "but Roberts to- night was the best pitcher I've seen all year." Rose, who had two of the ANDY CAPP MONEV ISN'T EVERYTHIN1, Y'KNOW IT'S SETTER T BE POOR AN' 'APPV THAN RICH AN' MISERABLE So says Dave Skrien Stampeders are tougher REGINA (CP) Dave Skrien, the Saskatchewan Roughriders head coach, says the Calgary Stampeder squad his club meets tonight is even tougher than last year- It was Stampeders who edged the Roughriders, then under Eagle Keys, 15-14 last year in the final game of the Western Football Conference champion- ship. "They're definitely improved says Skrien, whose team opened the regular season Tuesday with a 14-10 victory over Keys' British Columbia Lions. "And their defence is as good as last year. Also, it looks like Jerry Keeling is more at home at quarterback." Calgary coach Jim Duncan, who says Saskatchewan "defi- nitely" is the team to beat in ;he WFC this year, will start Seeling, an 11-year veteran, at quarterback. Rookie Jim Lind- sey from Abilene Christian will Rustlers ink Roy RED DEER (CP) Harvey Roy, 30, has been named to replace Alt Cadman as man- ager and coach of the Red Deer Rustlers, the Canadian junior champions in 1971. Okker makes semi-finals QUEBEC (CP) Fourth- seeded Tom Okker of The Neth- irlands and the Australian dou- bles team of Fred Stolle and Ken Rosewall advanced to the semi-finals after victories Thursday at the Quebec interna- tional tennis open. Okker, winner last week of the Louisville, Ky., open, downed 12th-seeded Charles Pa- sarell of Puerto Rico 6-4, 6-2 while Stolle and Rosew.nU out- lasted fellow countrymen Ray Ruffles and Bob Carmichael 6-2, 4-6, 7-6. Okker used his speed against the hard-hitting Pasarell to gain the win. The Flying Dutchman broke Pasarcll's serve in the seventh game to capture the first set and easily won the sec- ond when the Puerto Rican player's game fell apart. A demoralized Pnsarell twice saw liis serve broken in the first and third games of the second set and could not recover. The all-Australian doubles match gave the fans an exciting show as both pairs fought right down to the tie- breaker after splitting the first two sets. Rosewall and Stolle broke Ruffles' serve in the first game and Carmichael's service in the seventh game for an easy first- set win but their opponents bounced back to break Rose- wall's service in the 10th game and capture the second set. With the third set tied 6-6, the tie-breaker rule used to speed up play in early rounds of pro- fessional tournaments went into effect and Rosowall-S'tolle won 7-5. The system lias both loams alternately serving two points each with the winner being the team which picks up seven of the first 12 points, Stackers to race twice After a two-week absence the Southern Alberta Auto Racers will stage a two-day show this Sunday and holiday Monday. Bonanza Days, in ils second year, will see 17 races run off each day with racing Sunday evening and Monday afternoon.

Duncan has been criticized for etting Lawrence go but says Undsey showed more in the ex- hibition schedule. "The whole idea of the re- cruiting game is to bring in peo- ple to beat out the ones you have Lindsey's play in the exhibition games indicated be has a future in our league." Calgary, which hasn't playe a regular-season game yet, wo three of four pre-season games including a 27-0 home-field win over the Roughriders. It the first home win for the Stam peders over Saskatchewan six starts, dating back to 1968. The teams met six times las year and each won three games on the opposing team's field- eds' five hits, said: "I can't hink of a better left-hander in the league." Elsewhere, Pittsburgh Pirates altered Los Angeles Dodgers -4, St. Louis Cardinals downed ew York Mets 3-1 in a game nortened to eight innings by ain, and Atlanta Braves de- eated San Francisco Giants 4-2. Roberts, obtained by the for in the Octo- jer, 1968, expansion draft, was rucked for two hits and a run in first inning on a single by lose and a double by Lee May, hen tied his club record by re- iring the next 18 batters before ielding a one-out single to Tony 'erez in the seventh. Two in- field singles in the eighth were he only other Reds' hits off the 3-2, 200-pound Roberts, wrii didn't walk a batter and struck 3Ut five. Afterward, Roberts said: "I felt so strong I was trying to overpower hitters the first part of the game. I found out after ;wo innings that I had already ;hrown 32 pitches and I knew I couldn't keep up that pace. That's when I went to pitching instead of throwing." He threw only 64 pitches in the final seven innings for a :otal of 96. Despite his impressive ERA, Roberts' record is only 8-11. Among his losses have been 1-0, 2-1, 3-1, 3-2, 4-3 and three 2-0 games. Roberts, also a good hitter, made sure he got at least one run Thursday night, driving it in with one of his two hits. Dave Campbell chipped in with a pair of run-scoring doubles for the Padres. The Pirates overcame an early 4-0 Los Angeles lead, with the help of Gene Clines' three- run homer, Bob Robertson's two-run blast and Willie Star- gell's 33rd in the majors and equalling his career high for a season. Willie Crawford had a single, double and two-run homer for the Dodgers. The Dodgers threatened in the ninth before reliever Dave Giusti retired Willie Davis, Ri- chie Allen and Crawford to pre- serve the victory for reliever Bob Veale, 5-0. Matty Alou's two-run tie- breaking triple in the sixth in- ning keyed St. Louis' victory over the Mets. SAVINGS!
