By THE ASSOCIATED PltESS National League baseball sluggers and light hitters zeroed in on the fences Friday for a record 30 home runs in a mere seven games. It was the most ever hit in one in the rec- ord was 21) in eight games on July 8, matched the American and major league record set June 10, 1962, and re- peated June 14, 19H, both times in 10 games. Willie- Mays of San Francisco Giants, Tony Perez and Hal McRae of Cincinnati Kerls, Billy Williams of Chicago Cubs and Bob Robertson of Pittsburgh Pirates walloped two apiece to set the pace. But the list also in- cluded blasts by such unrcn- owned sluggers as Van Kelly, Chris Cannizzaro, Bob Barton and Dave Campbell of San Diego Padres, Gary Sutherland of Montreal Expos, Byron Browne of Philadelphia Phillies and Hal King of Atlanta Braves. Even relief pitcher Dave Rob- erts of the Padres got. into the act, and his was the last one of the night. When the bombing subsided, these were the results: Chicago Cubs 10, Cincinnati 7; Atlanta 8, St. Louis Cardinals 7; San Fran- cisco 7, New York Mob 1; Houston Astros 7, Pittsburgh 5; Los Angeles Dodgers 8, Phila- delphia 4 in 12 innings; San Diego 11, Montreal 1 in the opener of a twi-nighter and Montreal 7, San Diego 6 in the 11-inning nightcap. SHARE NINE The Cubs and Ecds combined for nine homers in their slug- lest, with Williams driving in four runs as Chicago's six-game losing streak and Cincinnati's string of eight victories ended. Besides Williams, Perez and McRae, J. C. Martin and Jim Hickman of the Cubs and Johnny Bench of the Reds also homered. King's solo homer in the sev- enth inning enabled the Braves to edge the Cardinals. It served the Cards right since they were the only team that didn't con- tribute to the home run bar- rage. Hank Aaron got the Braves even in the sixth with a thrce- run homer off Bob Gibson, his I2th of the season. Eico Carty extended his hitting streak to 26 games with an infield single and the Braves matched their long- est winning since they moved from Milwau- kee. Harmon Killebrew and Boog Powell continued their torrid long-ball pace for the American League division leaders Friday. Killebrew slammed his fifth homer in as many games as his Minnesota Twins nipped Cleve- land Indians 7-6 to remain atop the West Division, and Powell swatted his eighth homer in 14 games, propelling the East Divi- sion leading Baltimore Orioles to a 6-1 victory over Chicago White Sox. The homers, ninth of the sea- son for eacil slugger, were among 12 hit in the AL. (A rec- ord 30 were hit in .seven Na- tional League games Friday.) Jim Spencer and Roger Hepoz accounted for three runs with homers in California Angals' 4-2 nod over New York Yankees; Sal Bando knocked in four runs with a homer and single as Oak- land Athletics drubbed Boston Red Sox 7-] and Kansas City Royals mauled Detroit Tigers 9-3 in other games. Killebrew's two-run wallop in the fifth inning gave Minnesota a 4-2 lead, but the Indians struck for four runs in the sixth, Ihe last three on a homer by rookie Ray Foster The Twins pulled it out in the seventh on George Mittenvald's two-run blast and a run-scoring single by Tony Oliva. Powell lied M i 1 w a u k e e 's Danny Walton for the leage RBI lead, by smacking a three-run homer in the first inning that sent the Orioles on the way to their fourth conseculive victory. The big first baseman has deliv- ered 25 runs, 11 of them in four games against the White Sox.

Lack Of Sponsor, Race Cancelled TORONTO (CP) Lack of a sponsor has caused a cancella- tion of the World Manufactur- er's Championship auto race scheduled for Mosport Aug. 6. Bob Ilanno, executive director of the Canadian Auto Sports Club, said Friday "the budget Tor tliis event is fairly lu'gh." "Mosport's owners Iclt they :lidn't want to risk (lie financial loss that could come from the event in its first year." The manufacturer's series of endurance races includes events at Daytona and Sebring in Flor- da and such European events as the Le Mans 24-hour race. Fight Goes Monday Paduano Favored NEW YORK (CP) The ghosl of Marcel Cerdan Sr. may hover over the ring Monday night during the ID-round bout between Donato Paduano of Montreal and Marcel Cerdan Jr., but New York bookies ap- parently are not superstitious. Paduano, 21-year-old Italian- born battler with an undefeated ]8-0 record, was an 8-to-5 favor- ite late this week, despite the emphasis on Cerdan, 26, and his late falher in the pre-fight pub- licity in the New York press. Betting is illegal in New York but every sport fan in the city knows at least one bar, restaur- art or other establishment where he can place a bet. Much of the pre-fight publicity in the New York press has centred on Cerdan, the fact that he carries with him the watch his father wore when killed in a plane crash in The Azores in. 1949, and that he still has the blood-stained Lriuiks his father wore when he beat Tony Zale for Ilia championship. There also have been stories of Cerdan's meeting with Jake LaMotla, the man who took the championship from Cerdan Sr., and whom the first Cerdan was returning to Hie United States to fight when he died in dm air crash. All this publicity does not bother the Canadian welter- weight champion. "It's (the publicity) all part of Paduar.o said during his training at a resort in Kiamesha Lake, N.Y., "and it doesn't bother me, just like whether I'm favored or not favored is nothing. "It's all in the ring." AMERICAN LEAGUE Easl W Oaslon New washlriglon Minnesota...
