Rams, Bulldogs whip Hat clubs Cougars trounce McCoy Colts One more mystery yet unsolved SAN FRANCISCO (AP) With one mystery solved, there is still more suspense in store when San Francisco Giants meet Pittsburgh Pirates today in the opener of the National League playoffs. The Giants, who finally won the West Division title in a tin- gling finish on the final day Thursday, have other unan- swered problems as they open the best-of-five series with the East Division champions. But some questions remain: Will Bobby Bonds play? Are Willie McCovey's injuries a dis- abling factor? There are even more puzzles for San Francisco manager Charlie Fox. For instance, the pained hip of pitching ace Juan Marichal. Fortunately for San Francisco, Marichal will have tune to rest after hurling the division-winner over San Diego Padres Thurs- day night.

Bonds, who has been sidelined by a muscle pull in his rib cage, carries the biggest stick of the Orioles, Athletics to wait BALTIMORE, Md. (AP) The first game of the American League championship series be- tween Baltimore Orioles and Oakland Athletics was post- poned today because of rain and wet grounds. League president Joe Cronin made the decision at a.m. EDT after inspecting the Memo- rial Stadium field and consider- ing the weather forecast for the day. Game No. 1 in the best-of-five series now is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday. The second game was pushed back to Mon- day, originally a travel day. Cronin said that because oi the postponement the normal travel day followed the secbnc game has been cancelled. Game No. 3 remains set for Oakland at 3 p.m. EDT Tuesday. The fourth and fifth games, i: necessary, also are schedulec for Oakland. This marked the first rainoul since the playoffs were insti tutcd in i960. Dave poised and with the confidence of a 20-game Vida quiet and appar ently feeling the glare of hi; first spotlight the scheduled pitching rivals for the first game. Giants' fence-breaking lumber, lis status is questionable and ookie Dave Kingman might tart in right field instead. LNEES ARTHRITIC McCovey, tortured by ar- hritic knees and a torn carti- age, not to mention a gashed land, still can min pitchers. He vill start but won't be at full throttle. Also in the Giants' scheme is redoubtable Willie Mays, the youngest 40-year-old in baseball. An injured arm and the long season have taken their toll of the San Francisco veteran su- perstar. "Me I'm he says. "I hope I'll be rested for the Pir- ates." The Pirates, meanwhile, ap- pear to be on Uie other end of the and re- laxed after a comparatively easy division victory. Manager Danny Murtaugl has had time to manipulte his players, giving each critica rest periods in preparation for the big series. Ever-dangerous Roberto Clemente, heart ant soul of the team, and powerfu' Willie Stargell, the majors home run king, lend authority to the Pittsburgh attack. Murtaugh has been scouting the Giants, "looking for somr little new thing that migh help." The Pirates might need al the help they can get agains the Giants, a tough team fo (hem to beat at Candlesticl Park. They've managed to bea San Francisco here only once ii each of the last two seasons ant both victories were authored bj Blass. NOT WORRIED Does the situation upset Mur taugh? Absolutely not. he says "I never look say Murtaugh. "I don't let histor hother me. You can't let thing Mke that bother you in a playoff "This playoff is really just question of who gets hot. I short series, whoever gels hot i going to win." Tho right-handed Blass, 15-8, is backed by a team that hit a collective .274.
