The second method worked in the opener of their twi-mght doubleheader Tuesday. Brock was retired in each of his four trips to the plate, although the Cards posted a 5-1 victory. But the Expos ran out of methods in the second game, won by St Louis 8-4, and Brock swiped his 99th base of the season Brock now is just five short of Maury Wills' record of 104 stolen bases set in 1962. SAYS WRITERS WORRIED "I'm not worried, I've got plenty of Brock said later "It's you guys who are wor- he told reporters gath- ered around him in the club- house "You don't know when I'm going to be doing what I'm go- ing to do Elsewhere in the National League, Pittsburgh Pirates beat Philadelphia Phillies 8-2, Cincinnati Reds defeated Houston Astros 7-5, San Fran- cisco Giants outscored Los Angeles Dodgers 9-5, Atlanta Braves topped San Diego Padres 7-2 and New York Mets swept a pair from Chicago Cubs 2-0 and 11-4 Brock singled to lead off the third inning of the second game against Steve Rogers. With a 11 count on Ted Sizemore, he broke for second and easily beat the throw from catcher Barry Foote. "The only way you can stop the guy is keep him off Foote said of Brock. pressure is on the catcher, too, because you don't want to be the guy who goes in the book for his 105th." The sweep moved the Cards to within two games of front- running Pittsburgh in the NL East. Reggie Smith hit two home runs and Joe Torre belted one to lead the Cardinals in the opener, wnile a pair of two- run doubles by Ken Reitz led the attack in the second game. Jim Rooker, 11-10, pitched a six-hitter for the Pirates and also contributed with the bat. His double started Pittsburgh on its way to a seven-run out- burst in the fifth inning, and his two-run single capped that rally PAIR SAL THRU THIS WEEKEND FIBERGLASS BELTED POLYESTER CORD TIRES i FLYTE TRAC A blocV-ol! -hiTcwolls only SI 44 Ttore per No trade required No cnorges SOT nourmng sole sole price F7S- FOR FOR S50 88 FOR FOR S56.88 H78- FOR S62.88 F73 FOR S50 88 G7S FOR FOR S56 88 J7S FOR S62 88 BELTED FOR TRACTION AND STRENGTH WIDE SERIES "78" DESIGN SMOOTH RIDING POLYESTER GUARANTEED MONTHS o-iV i WITHOUT L1V1T TO I'OMTHS Ofi MU-ES AT NC ADDITIONAL CHARGE SPARK PLUG WIRE SET ,47 CHROME REVERSE WHEELS 188 COMPLETE BRAKE OVERHAUL DISC BRAKE OVERHAUL 8488 'Jfi 'jVj MILES PREMIUM BATTERIES COOLING SYSTEM CLEANER 188 C? 44 IZti WOJT t c r j" wj j- t 8TRACK STEREO FM STEREO RADIO t y ExftH i 4s'- THERMOSTAT W Icr D r f Ct itlt, FRAM PCV VALVES' 96 1 -MI .k f C -Hr, SEALED BEAMS J w 4 tftjd ly-p <.r JDM lOfjl itlH 'ift Co CO College Shopping Mall 2025 Mayor Magrcth Open Daily 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. i inminrviiiihnrih hi to lumit euunliliwi Richie Zisk's bases-loaded triple was the big hit in the middle of the Pirates' seven- run explosion. John Montefusco, promoted to the Giants on Monday from their Phoenix farm club, took over with none out in the first inning and the Giants trailing 4-2 and checked the Dodgers on just one run the rest of the way for the San Francisco vic- tory. The Giants moved in front 6- 4 in the second when Dodger starter Doug Rau issued three walks and then Gary Matthews hit the first grand- slam of his career. They add- ed two runs in the third when Montefusco, in his first time at bat of the year, hit a two- run homer. The Reds scored a pair of runs in the ninth to beat Hous- ton, Pinch-hitter Terry Crowley led off with a walk and moved to third on an errant pickoff throw. Crowley held third when Pete Rose beat out a high hopper to shortstop for a single, but came home n Joe Morgan's single. Ruse, who took third on Morgan's hit, scored on a sacrifice fly by Johnny Bench. Mike Lum drove in the tie- breaking run and then scored what proved to be the winning run in the sixth inning for the Braves, who added four un- earned runs in the eighth. Lum's line drive to right scored Dusty Baker, who had walked and stolen second. Lum scored when Craig Robinson bounced a single through the middle. John Milner drove in the only runs of the Mets-Cubs opener with a homer and a single, then highlighted a five- run rally in the seventh inning of the nightcap with a two-run single as the Mets extended their winning streak to six games Jon Matlack, 12-10, outduell- ed Dick Bosnian, 10-18, in the opener. Each pitcher gave up just four hits and struck out 10 Next goal is to complete a start Rookie Kucek sharp for Sox ASSOCIATED PRESS Jack Kucek has always had the equipment to make it in major-league baseball. Now he has the confidence. Making only his third start in the American League, the swift, young Chicago White Sox pitcher won his first game in the big leagues Tuesday night and announced plans for more conquests "My next he said after beating Kansas City Royals 2-1 with late relief help, "is to go the distance in a ball game." Kucek, 21, a Miami, Ohio, University student just last year, was picked up by the White Sox in the free agent draft last June. Now he's giv- ing the White Sox a pickup after a short trip through the minors. "One game doesn't make a year, but it was a fine game for a young said Chicago manager Chuck Tanner. "I hope he continues the im- provement. When you have a kid with an arm like his, you have something you. He's got a hell of an arm." TIGERS SPLIT In other American League games, Cleveland Indians beat Detroit Tigers 5-1 in the first game of a doubleheader before losing the second 5-4 in 11 innings, Texas Rangers beat Minnesota Twins 6-3 and Oakland A's defeated Califor- nia Angels 7-0. Kucek struck out six and walked two before leaving in the midst of a Kansas City ral- ly in the eighth inning. Frank White doubled and went to third on a single by Vada Pinson, chasing the White Sox rookie. Terry Forster then gave up a run- scoring single to Cookie Rojas before getting the side out. Earlier, Kucek worked out of trouble in the seventh inn- ing after walking John Mayberry and yielding a two- out single to George Brett. He got Fran Healy on a fly ball. Chicago jumped on knuck- leballer Bruce Dal Canton, 8- 8. for two runs in the first inn- ing on Pat Kelly's leadoff single. Tony Muser's RBI dou- ble an out later and Ken Henderson's single to centre. Kucek gave up only three hits before the Royals' eighth- inning uprising. Gaylord Perry didn't allow a hit for five innings and finished with a six-hitter to pace Cleveland's first-game victory over Detroit. Tom Veryzer's run-scoring single with two out in the llth inning lifted the Tigers over the Indians in the second game. With one out in the llth in- ning of the nightcap, Ben Og- livie slammed a double to left. After Reggie Sanders was in- tentionally walked, the runners moved to second and third on an infield grounder before Veryzer hit his game- winning single to left Detroit relief ace John Killer, 16-9, got the victory His 16 victories tie an American League record for relievers set by Dick Radatz of Boston Red Sox in 1964. Errors by Minnesota in- fielders Rod Carew and Danny Thompson allowed Jim Fregosi to score with the tie- breaking run and Texas went on to beat the Twins. With the score tied 3-3, Fre- gosi drew a one-out walk in the sixth inning. After Lenny Randle struck out, Toby Harrah laced a grounder to Carew, who booted the ball. It then bounced toward Thomp- son, who fielded it but threw wildly to first, the ball bounding into the dugout Fregosi was permitted to score on the play when se- cond base umpire Bill Kunkel ruled he had rounded second as Thompson threw the ball. Harrah, who wound up at second, scored when Mike Hargrove lined a double to right. Joe Lovitto then singled home Hargrove with the third run of the inning. SCHMnT TRADED GREEN BAY, Wis. (CP) Veteran centre John Schmitt, 31, was acquired Tuesday by Green Bay Packers from New York Jets in exchange for an undisclosed National Football League draft choice. SATISFACTION GUARANTY Expos9 Roil Hunt choke up artist CINCINNATI (AP) Like nickel beer, baseball hitters who choke up on the bat appear to be the latest victims of an age of change. A dying art? Ron Hunt, one of the last of the vanishing breed, thinks so. "I don't see many of us says the veteran in- fielder of Montreal Expos. "The trend is toward more home runs more power Look at baseball's player drafts. The teams are going for big infielders and bigger outfielders. Everybody wants people who can put the ball out of the park." But, says Hunt, the game still needs the tittle man to set the stage for the power hitters. "The home run is worth more now, but the little single gets things started." Hunt specializes in getting things started. His style of choking high on the bat and creeping dangerously close to the plate has won him respect, but at a high cost HIT OFTEN He's been hit by pitches more times (241) than any major leaguer in history, yet shows no signs of conceding a prized portion of the plate. Pitchers glare and growl but others of his in. "The plate belongs to the batter. Why just use part of if" Others using exaggerated grips for improved bat control are Felix Millan of New York Mets and Terry Harmon of Philadelphia Phillies "We realized a long time ago we weren't home run says Hunt "There aren't no hits in them handles The sight of a player holding half a bat in search of a blurring 90-mile-an-hour ball is one of baseball's vanishing delights. "Astroturf has helped says Hunt. "'The out- fielders are playing deeper now because the ball bounces higher. That leaves more holes for singles. "The name of the game is just meeting the ball. And make somebody play it Baseball used to be geared around the hit-and-run play. Now it seems everybody is waiting for the home run ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL St New Los San San TODArS GAMES New York Sadecki (6-7) at Chicago Stone (6-4) Montreal Blair (8-6) at St. Louis Foster (7-9) Cincinnati Billmgham (17-8) at Houston Wilson (10-10) San Francisco Caldwell (13-3) at Los Angeles Zahn (2-4) San Oiego Mclntosh (0-0) at Atlanta Leon (3-5) or Krause (4-2) TUESDAY'S RESULTS New York 100 001 4 0 Chicago 000 000 4 1 Matlack (12-10) and Hodges, Bonham (10-18) and Swisher HR NY Milner (19) New York 010 000 13 0 Chicago 020 000 4 11 2 Seaver (9-8) Parker (7) and Dyer, Dettore Frailmg (7) Hooton (7) Zamora (8) Kremmel Burns Hutson (9) and Mitterwald HRs NY Garrett Chi Monday (14) Montreal 001 000 7 2 St Louis 111 001 01 10 1 Walker McAnally Murray (4) Gebhard (7) and Foote, McGlothen (16-8) and Simmons HRs Smith (2) Torre (10) Montreal 000 030 100-4 12 2 St Louis 012 120 12 0 Rogers Carruthers Montague Taylor (8) and Foote.
