Lions, Bombers have new look VANCOUVER (CP) If there is one thing Western Football Conference fans can be certain of for tonight's game between British Colum- bia Lions and Winnipeg Blue Bombers, it is that both clubs have changed their rosters ex- tensively since they last met. The Bombers have perhaps the most spectacular change, having traded quarterback Don Jonas to Hamilton Tiger- Cats of the Eastern Football Conference for quarterback Chuck Ealev. The combination of Ealey and running back Dave Buchanan, which took the Tiger-Cats to the 1972 Grey Cup, clicked again Wednesday when Winnipeg defeated Ed- monton Eskimos 19-13. But the Lions have also made a startling change. Head Coach Eagle Keys an- nounced Friday that veteran offensive guard Trev Ekdahl has been released from the rooster, and will be replaced by Mike LaHood.

Yankees return to first THE ASSOCIATED PRESS New York Yankees are hav- ing their ups and downs these days. Right now, they're up in the American League East Di- vision pennant race. The Yankees, who dropped out of first place Thursday night, moved back in Friday night with a doubleheader sweep over Cleveland Indians. The Yankees beat the In- dians 5-4 and 3-0. The Yankees moved into a tie with Baltimore as the Orioles defeated Boston 2-1 and plunged the third-place Red Sox four games off the pace. In other American League games. Chicago White Sox blanked Oakland A's 2-0; Min- nesota Twins nipped Califor- nia Angels 3-2 and Detroit Tigers trimmed Milwaukee Brewers 8-5. Bobby Murcer's run-scoring triple in the ninth inning gave the Yankees their first-game victory. They won the second game as Larry Gura pitched a six-hitter. Don Baylor and Boog Powell hit home runs and Ross Grimsley and Grant Jackson combined to pitch a six-hitter, leading Baltimore over Boston. The victory was the seventh in eight games and the 19th in the last 24 starts for the surg- ing Orioles.

Johnson, 9-4, held the A's hitless until Claudell Washington singled in the fifth. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates, vying for the lead of the National League East, took opposite routes to the same destination Friday night. The Cards used the long ball, a three-run blast by catcher Ted Simmons, to beat Chicago Cubs 5-2. The Pirates didn't get any home runs, but made the best of two singles, a walk, a wild pitch, a passed ball, two in- field grounders and some alert baserunning to score three runs in the ninth inning and beat New York Mets 4-3. The victories kept the Cards in first place in the NL East, one-half game ahead of Pitts- burgh. Simmons blasted a three- run homer in the inning, the decisive blow in the Cards' triumph.

Mike Tyson opened the Cards' big inning with a walk, pitcher Bob Forsch sacrificed and was safe at first base on a fielders' choice and Lou Brock singled to load the bases. After Ted Sizemore fouled out, Reggie Smith singled home Tyson to put St. Louis in front 2-1 but Forsch was thrown out trying to score. Simmons then blasted his 18th home run of the year. Mets' starter Ray Sadecki had a 3-1 lead and was work- ing on a five-hitter until the Pirates rallied in the ninth. Rookie Art Howe led off with a walk, and Tug McGraw relieved Sadecki. Howe took second on a wild pitch, but McGraw struck out pinch- hitter Dave Parker. Pinch- hitter Paul Popovich bounced a weak single through the hole between short and third, Howe going to third, and Stennett followed with a bloop single to centre to score Howe, move Popovich to third, cut the Mets' lead to 3-2 and chase McGraw. Harry Parker took over on the mound for McGraw, but he couldn't stop Pittsburgh.
