The repair was made with the help of
pole-sitter Johnny Rutherford's chief
mechanic, Hughie Absalom, and some
USAC officials, who helped Martin's crew
get a new hose.
Martin was asked if the delays made
him edgy. His reply apparently expressed

of whom sailed a Frisbee in the pit area
or napped during the long wait.

NEW YORK-The New York
Yankees pulled in the fences in
the House That Ruth Built last
night and parked four shots into
the seats to swamp the Oakland
Athletics and Catfish Hunter 7-1.
The erstwhile Bronx Bombers
did it all in two innings, scoring
two in the second and five in the
third. The happy-go-lucky Hunter
turned into a frowning hurler as
he saw his 27 inning scoreless
streak disappear when Graig

Cubbies plaster Lips Astros

From wire Service Reports
CHICAGO - The frigid breezes that blew
in from Lake Michigan yesterday did not
douse the fires of rage that the Chicago Cubs
hold for ex-pilot Leo Durocher as the Bruins
smashed The Lip's Houston Astros, 7-1.,
The Cubbies went to work early, dismantl-
ing Astro hurler Jerry Reuss, now 6-2 on the
year, with four markers in the very first
Reuss' quick exit to the showers was abet-
ted by his frequent wildness as he issued
three free passes to the first four Cub swing-
ers. Jose Cardinal and Randy IHundley pun-
ished the left-hander for his carelessness
each stroking a two-run single.
The Cubs' Rich Reuschel, .on the other
hand, proved much more adept at pitching
out of trouble than his Astro counterparts.
Although the Houston club loaded the bases
twice in the first stanza, the Texans could

manage to push across only one tally.
The Cubs, some -of whom bitterly resent
Leo Durocher, were apparently gunning for
their ex-mentor. Not content with a 4-1 lead,
the Cubs smashed Reuss' successors with
ease. Three more Cub runs came across the
plate, including a two-out home run in the
fourth by Rick Monday.
Pirates ramble
PITTSBURGH-Luke Walker and Jim
Rooker scattered seven hits and Willie Star-
gell's 13th home run of the season helped the
Pittsburgh Pirates to a 6-1 victory over the
Atlanta Braves last night.
Pittsburgh tagged loser Carl Morton, 4-4,
for an unearned run in the second and added
two more runs in the third on a pair of walks,
a run-scoring single by Stargell and an
infield out that produced another run.

Morton yielded two more runs in the
fourth, one scored on Walker's bunt single,
and Stargell gave the Pirates a 6-0 lead in
the fifth when he tagged Morton for a solo
home run to dead center.
Walker, who pitched seven full innings
before tiring, allowed five hits and surren-
dered the first Atlanta run in the sixth on
Ralph Garr's triple and a single by Darrell
Walker worked the first seven innings and
Rooker allowed two leadoff singles in the
eighth, but he retired the next three Braves
in order and held Atlanta scoreless the rest
of the way.
Cards roll
ST. LOUIS - Right-handers Scipio Spinks
and Diego Segui combined for a five-hitter,
pitching the St. Louis Cardinals to a 2-0 vic-
tory last night over the Cincinnati Reds.
