BOSTON - The injury-plagued
Boston Red Sox proved anew the
old Little League adage that a
walk is as good as a hit last
night, as they capitalized on
eight free passes served up by
Kansas City pitching and hobbled
their way to a 9-3 victory over
-- the high-flying Royals.

which featured the sage com-

four runs on a mere two hits.
Royals' starter Gene Garber,
noticeably parsimonious with the
bases on balls in his past per-
formances, walked the always
ailing star Reggie "The Rifle"
Smith after two leadoff hits to
load the bases, setting the stage
for two dramatic walks to Carl
Yastrzemski. and Carlton
Pudge Fisk, which forced in
two more Sox tallies.
The scoring for the inning was
- completed when Bruce Dal Can-
ton, in what was less than a
memorable relief stint, hit Or-
lando Cepeda and forced in the
fourth run for the Hose.
It was only later on in the
game that the Red Sox proved
that an assortment of bad backs,

their vaunted double-barreled

Sports of The Daily


the Big World beckons
Two former Michigan football stars are going to try their
luck in the pro ranks. Tom Coyle, Michigan's great offensive
guard who was totally ignored by the pros in March's draft, is
going down to Houston as a free agent. There he will try to
gain a spot on the front line with old linemate Guy Murdock, now
the number one center on the floundering Oilers. Former half-
back Alan "Cowboy" Walker is heading north to Hamilton, On-
tario, where he will vie for a backfield spot with the Tiger-Cats.
Walther: stable
According to a spokesman at the University Hospital's Burn
Center, David "Salt" Walther, the injured Indy driver, is in
serious but stable condition. Walther, who has burns over 40
per cent of his body, could spend two months or more in the
burn unit. Swede Savage, burned in the actual running of the
race, remains in critical condition.
Four misplays over this weekend made fielding news in
Major League Baseball. Davie Lopes, the Los Angeles Dodgers
second sack sensation, tied a record held by two others playing
his position by committing three miscues in one inning. Lopes
rode two boots and a bad throw to his record ineptness . . .
Oakland's Mike Hegan saw his 178 consecutive games without
an error streak tops among active first sackers, go by the
boards Sunday as he bobbled a ground ball against the New
York Yanks.
Icing the puck
Hockey, the winter sport that was supposedly finished a
month ago, continues its newsmaking ways. The Rangers got a
new coach, former center Dennis Popein . . . Guy Charron inked
a contract with the Red Wings, ending speculation he might
jump to the rival WHA . . . The Bruin's Mike Walton did just
that, going to the Fighting Saints of Minnesota, who, by the
way, denied that the Detroit group was going to buy them and
move the franchise to Motown . . . Got all that?

By The Associated Press
CINCINNATI-Dave Concepcion
and Bobby Tolan delivered run-
scoring singles in the sixth inning
for Cincinnati's first two hits fol-
lowing an intentional two-out
walk to Tony Perez and the Reds
went on to score four times en
route to a 5-0 victory over the
New York Mets last night.
Jack Billingham, 8-2, pitched
a three-hitter to hand the Mets
their eighth setback in 10 games
and drop them behind Montreal
into a fourth-place tie with St.
Louis in the National League
It was the fifth consecutive de-
feat for Matlack. The National
League's Rookie of the Year in
1972 hasn't won since April 28.
The Reds added a run off
Harry Parker in the seventh on
a walk, Concepcion's single and
an error.
Astros exolode
HOUSTON-Dave Roberts fired
a six-hitter and Jim Wynn hit
his 12th home run, leading the
Houston Astros to a 7-0 win over
the Philadelphia Phillies last
The triumph ended Houston's
losing streak at four games and
extended Philadelphia's to seven
in a row.
Wynn's shot, a two-run blast,
came in the seventh. The Astros

scored their first five runs sn
the fourth inning against rookie
Larry Christenson, 1-4, and Dar-
rel Brandon.
Pirates sunk
PITTSBURGH - Tito Fuentes
and Garry Maddox drove in three
runs apiece while Tom Bradley
hurled the San Francisco Giants
to a 7-2 victory over the Pitts-
burgh Pirates last night.
The Giants nicked loser Bob
Moose, 4-5, for their first run in
the fourth inning on a walk and
singles by Gary Matthews and
Chris Speier.
They extended their lead to 3-0
in the fifth when Bobby Bonds
singled and scored on a triple
by Fuentes. M a d d o x brought
Fuentes home with a sacrifice
Fuentes ripped a two-run sin-
gle andtMaddox drove in two
more with a triple in the ninth.
