Pittsburgh's Al Oliver is 1- for-29, but that hit Was a grand slam homer that powered the Pirates past St. Louis Cardinals and Bob Gibson 5-1. In other National League tion, Tito Fuentes drove in all the San Francisco runs with triple and home run as the Giants whipped San Diego Padres 5-1; Rusty Staub's sin- gle, double and homer lifted Montreal Expos post Philadel- phia Phillies 7-6 and Houston Astros held off Los Angeles Dodgers 6-5. Atlanta Braves and Cincinnati Reds were net sched- uled. Fireballing right-harder Gen- try was within four outs of the Mets' first-ever no-hitter when Banks, who hit his 500th career home run a day earlier, became the spoiler. His line drive eluded left fielder Dave Mar- shall, who tried to make a shoestring catch but had the ball gfence off his glove. I "There's no question it was a saud the 23-year-old Gen- try. "I wanted to throw him a low inside fast ball hoping he would pop it up against that wind that was coming in. But I didn't get it where I wanted. It wasn't a cheap hit and I'm glad of that." The only other Cubs to reach Ford, Louw Both Win EDMONTON (CP) Cana- dian lighweight champion Al Ford of Edmonton extended his unbeaten professional boxing record to 28 straight wins Wed- nesday night with a decision over Len Kesey of Eugene, Ore. Ford, 20, jabbed his way to a 10 round split decision victory before fans. Two judges gave him 4M5 and 48 44 while referee Johnny Smith scored it 46 46. It was Kesey's sixth defeat in 31 professional bouts. He weighed in at 1351i pounds aral Ford 136. Ford recently was placed by the World Boxing Association as the 10th ranked world title contender.

(AP) Ben Hogan will tee it up Thurs- day in the first round of the prestigious Colonial National In- vitation Golf Tournament, but it's open to question how far he will go. "We'll just have to said the 57-year-old five-time winner of this event, who played his first tournament in three years last week in the Houston Cham- pions International. Hogan, wearing a brace to support an injured left knee, twisted the knee in a practice round Tuesday, played only nine holes and left the Colonial County Club course in pain. He did not practice Wednes day, nor did he play in the Pro- Am, but took massage and diathermy treatments. He said he would attempt to play in the tournament but couldn't guarantee he would finish. The tough old champion, who scored his last tour victory on this course in 1959, "played bet- ter than I thought I in his return to competition at Houston. FINISHED NEAR TOP Although limping badly at Houston he finished -with a highly respectable 287, just five strokes off the lead, and took a place in the top 10. He was a sentimental favorite here, but the top choices for the first prize included Jack Wcklaus, Gary Player and Lee Trevino. Arnold Palmer and Billy Casper are not competing. Nicklaus arrived only Wednesday and immediately iook over the favorite's role. Big Jack won his last time out, seating Paiiner in a playoff at Dallas two weeks ago, and has finished lower than eighth only once in his last 11 starts. Trevino and Player boast rec- ords almost equally impressive. Trevino has scored two victories this year and leads the money winning list with Player, a South African, is playing in his 10th consecutive tournament in the United States, a much longer stay than he usually makes. In his last nine starts, he's won once, been eighth or better six times and already has vaulted into the No. 2 spot on the money list with Other top contenders include Frank Beard, Dave Hill, defend- ing champion Gardner Dickin- son, Australian Bruce Cramp- ton, Ray Floyd and U.S. open champ Orvjlle Moody.

Smothers Get The Last Laugh EDMONTON (CP) There's a comedian among the entrants for the May 24 continental for- mula A race at Edmonton In- ternational Speedway. Really. Dick Smothers, half of the television comedy team, is an up-and-coming race driver but he never misses a chance to be funny. Speedway manager Reg Bccth received a cheque for in tha mail this week. The entry fee for the race is "I road where you pay prize money in Canadian wrote Smothers. "Enclosed is my entry fee at the rale at ex- change." Booth, not one to get unset easily, said "If he's that sharp, it's easy to see how lie got as rar 35 he did in the entertain- ment business." CANADIANS OUT SANTIAGO (CP) The only Canadian team in the gruelling World Cup rally between Lon- don and Mexico City was re- ported to have dropped out ot competition before it could reach this Chilean capital Wednesday night. base were Ron Sarto, who walked in the fifth, amd Willie Smith, who was hit by a pitch In the ninth. Gentry fanned seven as the Mets took the first 1970 meeting between last year's bit- ter rivals. Art Sharnsky homered and Wayne G-Eirett doubled and tri- pled to pace the Mets' six-hit of- feree against Bill Hands, who struck out 12. In Baltimore Manager Earl W e a v e r's strategy backfired Wednesday night and it meant a 10th inning loss to Minnesota Twins. "What I should have done was challenge Harmon moaned Weaver after the Twins edged his Orioles 5-4. "If he hits a home run, it's the same as a double." Kille- brew had hit a two-run homer, No. 10 this year, in the first in- ning. Weaver had right-handed re- lief ace Eddie Watt intentionally watt Killebrew after Tony Oliva bad doubled with two out in the 10th. This put up the Twins' Rich Reese, a left-handed bat- ter, against Watt. Reese promptly doubled, bringing home Oliva with the winning run that snapped Baltimore's eight-game winning streak. In other American League games, California Angels topped Boston Red Sox 5-3, Oakland Athletics r i p n e d Washington Senators 8-1, Kansas City Roy- als nipped Cleveland Indians 1-0 in 12 innings and Milwaukee Braves downed New York Yan- kees 3-1. Chicago at Detroit was reined cut. HAD HIS RIPS Reese, who batted .322 fcr the Twins last year, entered the Baltimore game with a .219 bat- ting average. He said: "I made up my mind I was going to take three good rips and ,1 did. I'm too good a hitter to be hitting what I am." Minnesota now holds a 3-2 season edge in the meetings be- tween last year's division lead- ers. Baltimore maintained its six- game lead in the AL East while Minnesota remained one game behind Califorina in the West. California won its seventh In its last eight starts against Bos- ton when reliever Sparky Lyle walked home Jim Spencer in the eighth with what proved to be the winning run. Tony liaro hit two Sox homers, his second tying the game 3-3 in the ton of the eight. Don Afincher drove home three runs and Sal Bando and Rick Monday two each as Oak- land handed Washington its sev- enth consecutive loss. John (Blue Moon) Odom ?'Iowed three Senators' hits in six in- ss, but walked seven and Rollie Fingers finished. Death Claims Famous Pitcher CHARLESTON, W. Va. (AP) John D. Stuart, who gained baseball fame by pitching and winning both games in a major1 league doublcheader, died Wednesday in hospital here after a brief illness. He was 69.

The Brazilians swarmed all over a squad of Canadian colle- gians and former college stars to run away with a 112-59 triumph. Brazil led 58-28 at half- time. Wlu'le seven top teams go into the finals at Ljubljana begin- ning S'aturday, Canada will join the losers in a consolation round at Skopje. The Canadians lost all three of their games in the qualification series and wound up at the bottom of the four- team B group standings.

The Canadian team, coached by Dr. Peter Mullins, head coach of the University of Bri- tish Columbia, could mount no attack against the Brazilians. Bob Molinski of UBC, Bruce Dempster of the University of Toronto and John Barton of Sudbury, Ont., each had the Ca- nadian high of eight points. Ron Thorsen of UBC and Emergency Debate Is Scheduled LONDON (CP) The House of Commons today scheduled an emergency debate forThursday on the proposed controversial tour of a white South African cricket team here, opening up the prospect of a head-on colli- sion with English cricket au- thorities. Many Labor MFs and some opposition Conservatives de- manded the debate. Laborite Philip Noel-Baker said there is an urgent need for action to persuade the cricket council to withdraw its invita- tion to the South Africans as a team selected by race rather than ability. The cricket council, which Tuesday reiterated its decision that the tour will take place, was meeting today with various anti-apartheid groups and rep- resentatives of the Common- wealth Games scheduled for July in Edinburgh. The council has been under increasing pressure to abandon the visit since India, Pakistan and 11 African countries threat- ened to boycott the Common- wealth Games unless the cricket tour is abandoned. Charles Morrison, Conserva- tive party spokesman on sport, told a news conference there is fear of a breakdown in law order if the tour goes on. Kenya today became the llth African country to threaten a boycott of the Commonwealth Games. League Leaders Amtrican Leagut AB R H Aparicio, Chi 100 19 37 Spencer, Cal Johnson, Cal F.

Twenty-three of the 24 clubs voted against the proposal with only Philadelphia in favor. Marvin Miller, executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, announced the results of the balloting Wednesday. Miller did not release a break- down of the secret vote by teams. Six of the teams re- ported no players voting to ac- cept. Miller said the association has proposed a meeting with the owners' representatives to de- termine whether the outstand- ing differences can be resolved through negotiations. REFERS TO SCHEDULE Among the primary reasons for not accepting the proposal, Miller said, was "the sincere feeling that to freeze the over- long frantic schedule of 162 games for three years is not in the best interests cf baseball, the fans, the owners or the play- ers." He also referred to "the lack of equity in the owners' pro- posal to take the lion's share of the new revenue generated by adding still more games to the schedule in the form of divi- sional playoff series." "This departure from ths tra- ditional arrangement whereby World Series revenue has been Barry Ilowson of Sarnia, Ont., scored seven points apiece, fol- lowed by Derek Sankey of UBC and John Cassidy of Dalhousic University with six each, Dave Murphy of S'mon Frascr Uni- versity with four, Terry MacKay of UBC with three and John Haddon of the University of Toronto with two. Owners Proposal Is Turned Down shared with the players is consi- dered inequitable." None of the television money from tire playoffs goes Wo the player pot. "The owners' proposal would continue the practice of signing established, veteran players to contract, usually by midwinter, and terminating such contracts sometimes as late as the last day of training in April without paying a single day's said Miller. Bisons Take Calder Cup SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AF) Buffalo Bisons won the America? Hockey League's Calder Cup Wednesday night, smashing Springfield Kings 6-2 for a four-game sweep of their best-of-seven series. Bob Jones, Buffalo's leading scorer throughout the playoffs, paced the attack with a pair of goals. It was Jones' second goal of the game at the 33 second mark of the final period which snapped a 1-1 tie and put the Bi- sons on top to stay. Buffalo made it a rout, with four moi'e goals before the pe- riod was half over as play be- came sluggish due to the ex- treme heat.
