A ladies night crowd of about 4,000 SFUV Ztmmer deadlock the game with a 2-run circuit blast in the ninth inning and cheered itself hoarse when the kid chased In the frwo winning runs with a sinple in the 13th. Both runs were necessary because the determined Pelicans rmd surged ahead with a sinslc (ally in the top of the final frame. Third-place Little Rock captured its second in a row from the hapless Memphis Chicks in a IB-* walkaway; Birmingham subdued Atlanta 5-1, and Nashville clubbed 'Chattanooga, 13-.S. Little Rock found Ihe sidnai'm offerings of Tom lllird no puzzln and chased the Memphis right- hander with a fi-run blast in the second inning. Hal Simpson, the Rocks' one-man wrecking crew, doubled and singled during the wild frame. The Trnvs continued to pelt Johnny Maldovan and Ron Ploetz and racked tip 16 safeties, including homers by Jim Cronln and Duke Doollttle. Memphis chased l.Htte Rock starter Dutch McCnll with a 3-run rally in the second, but lefty Dick Hoeksema was brilliant In relief and throttled the Chicks with only two hits the rest of the way. The loss was Ihe seventh straight for the Chicks, a situation calculated to bring moans of extreme agony from Luke Appling, the harried Memphis pilot.
