Sabres punch out Philly

By The Associated Press
BUFFALO - Jerry Korab,
Gilbert Perreault and Jim Lor-
entz scored second - period
goals last night and goalie
Gerry Desjardins recovered
from a nightmarish perform-
ance to give the Buffalo Sabres
a 4-2 triumph over the Phila-
delphia Flyers and tie their
NHL championship series.
The goals helped Buffalo
come back from deficits of 1-0
and 2-1 and lifted the Sabres to
their second consecutive victo-
ry. The best-of-seven series, in
which each team has won twice
at home, now shifts to Phila-
delphia for game five Sunday.
Korab and Perreault scored
on power plays after Andre
Dupont had given the Flyers
a 1-0 lead in the first period
and Philadelphia's Ross Lons-
berry had made it 2-1 in the

NORWALK, Ohio {Y'-Robert
Moses "Lefty" Grove, a Hall of
Fame pitcher who won 300
games in a 17-year major
league career, was found dead
of a heart attack yesterday.
THE 75-year-old Grove was
found slumped over in a chair
in his Norwalk home by his
daughter-in-law, Mrs. Robert
Grove, with whom he lived.
Grove was known for a siz-
zling fastball amd a sizzling
temper as well.
JIMMY Dykes, a onetime
Philadelphia teammate of the
great Hall of Fame pitcher,
once remembered:
"I was his good friend off the
field, so I was the only one
allowed to go near him on the
mound. If his blood pressure
was going up, I would get the
ball and hold it a While,"

of the second period to give
Buffalo its first lead in any
game of the series. Rookie Dan-

the decision.

tied it for Buffalo at 3:46 of
the second.
All the while, the fog which
had disrupted Tuesday night's
game 12 times did not make an
appearance until 8:08 remained
in the game, when referee Wal-
ly Harris called time and arena
attendants skated around the
surface with bedsheets held in
their hands to disperse the fog.
Gametime temperatures were
in the high 70s and humidity
had hovered like a brewing
storm over the Memorial Sta-
dium sellout crowd of 15,863.

Kentucky wins ABA
title for the first time
LOUISVILLE, Ky.-With Artis Gilmore hitting 28 points, the
Kentucky Colonels ended eight years of frustration last evening,
beating Indiana 110-105 for their first American Basketball Asso-
ciation championship.
The Colonels, in wrapping up the series four games to one,
had to shake off a pesky Indiana defense that kept the outcome
in doubt until the final two minutes.
Gilmore was chosen the Most Valuable Player of the
series and received a new automobile.
High point man for Indiana was Billy Knight with 40, followed
by George McGinnis with 31. McGinnis, who suffered an ankle
injury in game three, apparently wasn't bothered last night as he
was constantly snatching rebounds.
With 22 seconds left in the game, Knight hit a free throw to
narrow the gap to 108-103 and then collected his 40th point on a
shot from the side with 16 seconds remaining.
Gilmore was fouled, made both shots and that ended the
Kevin Joyce got 16 for the Pacers and Len Elmore added 16.
This was the first year the Colonels played under Coach Hubie
Brown, and when action started last night there was no doubt
they intended to seek revenge on Indiana, which had knocked them
out of the title in the 1972-73 season.
