The Chicago left-hander has won his last two starts arter a string of five straight set- backs.

Boyer exploded two homers out of spacious Atlanta Stadium Tuesday night to lead the Braves' 12-6 victory over Pilts- .burgh Pirates and that set off the fireworks in the left field tent of the team's colorful mas- cot.

Boyer's two shots, and Hank Aaron's homer kept him twitching Tues- day night. "Two homers, that's hard to believe, isn't said Boyer, better known for his fielding ex- ploits at third base than his long-ball hitting.

Hoyt Wilhelm made his W8th appearance, bailing out Braves' starter and winner George Stone in the seventh. Clarence G as t o n's two-run jomer keyed a four-run ninth ;hat propelled San Diego over Philadelphia. The Padres bat- tled back after the Phillies scored seven runs in the open- frame and bolted ahead when Steve Huntz hit a leadoff double in the ninth and Gaston unloaded his fourth homer.

"I'm pretty sure we can beat No Evidence Is Found By RCMP CHARLOTTETOWN (CP) An RCMP investigation into al- legations of police brutality dur- ing a junior A hockey game here April 13 found no evidence to support the charges, Attor- ney-General J. Elmer Elan- chard of Prince Edward Island said Tuesday. The inquiry was ordered by Mr. Blanchard on the request of Quebec Justice Minister Remi Paul after police and firemen were.called to the arena here to break up a brawl late in the third period between Quebec Remparts and Charlottetown Is- landers, playing in the second game of the Eastern- Canada Memorial Cup semi-final series. In a report on the RCMP in- vestigation, Mr. Blanchard said his "general conclusion" that Charlottetown police "are to be commended for the way in which they moved into a highly charged and riot-prone situation at the request of the referees." He said it appeared that 'much of the trouble" was caused when the Remparts "de- cided to flagrantly taunt offi- cials and occasionally disregard their orders while injecting un- necessary roughness into the game." Following the brawl, the game was awarded to the Is- landers who led 64 at the time. Andre Savard, a centre with the Remparts, was ejected from the game earlier in the second period and was later arrested when he went on to the ice dur- ing a shoving match. He was fined and costs (he following morning when he pleaded guilty to a charge of disorderly con- duct in police court. Mr. Blanchard said there was "no clear evidence" that "po- lice brutality" was used in Sa- vard's arrest. He said Savard stepped on the ice in civilian clothes "and used abusive lan- guage to police who did not rec- ognize him as t hockey player. Weyburn hi four he said in an interview Tuesday "The name of the game is skat ing, and I don't think they will .be able to keep up with us."

Gilles Meloche, Quebec Rem parts goaltender, said Sunday after Canadiens eliminate; Quebec from the playoffs: "Martin has got the hardest shot I've ever seen. It's jusi phenomenal." While Martin and many of Ms team-mates are looking for a sweep against Weyburn, Cana diens general manager Phi! Wimmer is being cautious. "They must have a good team if they are in the nationa said Wimmer, "but don't think any team can match our three lines." Meanwhile, Weyburn coach Jack Dunn plans no special strategy for tonight's game. "We haven't seen their super- star Perreault and we under- stand there is no real way to cover him." Dunn said Jerome Mzareki picked up from Moose Jaw Can- ucks of the Saskatchewan league for the playoffs, will be the starting goaltender for the Red Wings. Second game of the series is Friday night and the third Sun- day night.
