The nationally televised game was a bit on the loose side until Moffitt arrived on the scene and created some order out of the pitching chaos. The young reliever allowed two hits in 3 1-3 innings work, nailing down the ictory. Pittsburgh Pirates nipped Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 in the only other National League game played. Chicago Cubs at Montreal Expos and St. Louis Cardinals at New York Nets were rained cut. In the only American League games scheduled, Boston Red Sox defeated Baltimore Orioles 4-1, Cleveland Irniars battered New York Yankees 10-5 and Oakland blenked Kansas City Royals 5-0. STARTERS CHASED The Giants jumped out to a 4- 0 lead, knocking out Houston starter Ken Forsch in the first inning. By the sixth, that mar- gin -was down to 5-4. and when the Astros kayoed San Fran- cisco starter Ron Bryant, Mof- fitt came out of the bullpen. Billie Jean's brother, whose earned run average is a neat 1.55 in 21 games, shut off the Astros the rest of the way and the Giants put the game out of reach with the long ball. Garry Maddox and Chris Speier rapped homers in the seventh and Ed Gocdson another in the ninth. Speier, who had a two-run triple in the first inning, drove in four runs with three hits. The victory moved the Giants first-place Houston in the Na- tional League West. Pittsburgh wiped cut a four- run deficit against Steve Carl- ton with homers bv Willie Star- beat the Phillies on Richie Zisk's pinch single in the ninth. Boston ended a four-game los- ing sireak with Luis Tiant throttling Baltimore on four hits. Luis Aparicio drove in two runs with a two-out, bases- leaded single in the seventh in- ning and Carl Yastrzemski dou- bled home two more in the ninth. New York roughed up Gay- lord Perry for four runs on five hits in the second inning, but Cleveland's ace survived the rally and the Indians came from behind and beat the Yan- kees. Buddy Bell contributed four singles and George Hendrick Reeder hot in outing as top cowboy By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer Ben Hern of Bindloss, Alber- ta found a perfect way to cele- brate the Victoria Day holiday weekend. He added close to to his bank account as he grabbed both the all around honors and the steer wrestling crown at Tabcr's 33rd annual rcdeo. Ben's time of 5.5 seconds in the steer wrestling was far and away the best of the two day rcdeo as the cowboys had noth- ing but trouble with the new rubber-necked Mexican steers. He also placed in the top six in the bareback riding and competed in the bull riding as well. Winning on the Southern Cir- cuit, of which Taber is the first rodeo this year, isn't new for Ben as he won the circuit's bull riding and all around crowns last season. Lee Phillips of Carsland drop- ped his steer in the slow time i of 6.2 seclnds but still placed second behind Hern. Up in the seven second range were Jim j Marsh with a 7.1 and George Myron with 7.4 in fourth spot. Bill Reeder, making his first professional appearances this year, topped the calf roping en- tries with a time of 10.6 sec- onds. Bill pocketed for his winning run. Jim Gladstone, currently leading the Canadian calf rop- ing standings, was second with an outing lasting 11.2 seconds. Arnie Johnson of Cutbank, Mon- tana continued his hot hand here hi the southland as he placed third, putting the wraps on his catch in 11.6 seconds. Bob Brown came up with a couple of seconds at Taber. It" marked the second time he'd won the Taber saddle bronc riding, and the second rodeo he's won in as many days in Southern Alberta. Bob won at Stavely Saturday, and his 75 point ride on a tough Kesler bucking horse called Wampum at Taber earned him an additional S233.24 in loose change plus the champion- ship. Veteran George Myron com- bined with another rodeo vet- eran, Hat Rack, and placed second behind Brown with a 70 point ride. Doug Void found himself at the pay window again as he finished third with 68 points. The bull riders were severely tested by the tough Kesler stock but when it was all over it was Bud Munns who was S306.54 richer. Bud clung to the back of Night Hawk in the bright sun Monday, garnering 73 points and the rodeo laurels as well. Hard riding Bob Kartell of Strathmorc was next in line with a 71 while Dave Garstad, a former Canadian champion in this event, was third with 70 points. Two great veteran competi- tors, Benny Reynolds and Rocky Rockabar, were knotted at 69 in fourth. Dale Chritensen of Carseland collected at the pay win- dow for winning the bareback event atop a bronc called Stormy with a mnrking of 73. A traffic jam of four riders spit the next four monies as Dale Trottier and Happy Tag- art had 68s for a split of second and third and Bob Kartell and Lynn Jensen divided fourth and fifth money with 67s. Tommy Ross of Fort Macleod had a 66 and won the amateur Braves iiab Pepitone ATLANTA (AP) Atlanta Braves obtained colorful Chi- cago Cubs' first baseman Joe Pepitone Saturday in a trade between the two National League baseball teams for mi- nor league first baseman Andy Thornton and cash.

Loney, of Highwood, Mon- tana, was the last rider out and he had drawn a horse called Idaho. He used him to the full- est, raking out an event win- ning 75 point ride. Friday night four-time Cana- dian bareback king Dale Trot- tier and youthful Greg Butter- field had earned 70 points each but saw their rides slip to sec- ond place with Loney's fine outing. Another twosome, Jim Clif- ford and Happy Tagart, were tied for third with 69 points apiece. Roy Groves, a strathmore youngster, reversed Loney's winning formula in the calf roping. Groves was the first roper out Saturday and his time of 12.1 seconds moved him into I top spot, a position he never re- linquished. Friday's leader, Harold Man- I deville, holder of eight major Canadian rcdeoing titles, had to be content with second spot after Groves' fine run. Harold wrapped his calf in 13.9 seconds, placing him ahead of third place finisher Barry Edge of Cochrane and Mon- tana's Arnie Johnson. Both boys turned in times of 14.1 seconds. For the second year in a row Bobby Brown of Adrian, Texas found himself in a tie for top spot in the saddle bronc riding at Stavely. Brown mastered a Void Ro- deo Co. horse named Bobby Dimmer Friday night and was awarded 73 points for his ef- fort. However, Doug Void the stock contractor's younger bro- ther, also came up with a 73 Saturday night on a family bronc called Calsomine and earned a share of the cham- pionship. Tom Bews had Calsomine Friday but came up two points short of the leaders and set- tled for runner-up spot. Wes Zicffle, a former South- ern Circuit winner in the steer wrestling, took 4.3 seconds at his task Saturday and grabbed the rodeo championship. First day leader Jim Hem had to settle for second place with 4.7 seconds while Phil Doan came out in third spot, one tenth of a second behind Hern. The third place finish for Doan, combined with his sixth place in the bareback event earned him the rodeo's all around title. Lenny Dial of Innisfail saw his first night's score of 70 hold up in the bull riding, giv- ing him the victory in that event. Bob Kartell fell just short of Dial with 69 points. Jim Free- man, Larry Collins and Bud Munns were grouped in third with 68s. The amateur bronc riding went to Don Tescher of the ro- deoing Tescher family from North Dakota. Don had a 69 point outing. Gayler Ramplant toured the clover leaf barrel racing course in the fastest time, 13.8 sec- onds.
