Hisle hits 2-run homer Quilici pulls switch that paid off for 2-1 victory BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — Larry Hisle and Twins Manager Frank Quilici pulled a switch on California pitcher Frank Tanana, going for the big one rather than a bunt. The snitch paid off. Minnesota edged the Angels Underwood tops Brandon UNDERWOOD - The Rockets of Underwood exploded for four runs in the bottom of the opening frame and hung on to defeat Brandon 4-2 in a Little Eight Conference game Friday afternoon at Underwood. Pat Lannon fanned seven Brandon batters in the win and Ken Rostad along with Mark Andrews got two hits each. Gary Bjorklund banged out a double that was good for two of Underwood's four runs. Doug Schjei was 2 for 4 and Darrell Thoennes was 2 for 3 and had both of Brandon's RBIs.

'Beacon' lones will not pay drug fine 2-1 Friday night on Hisle 1 s two- run homer over the right field fence in the eighth inning, after trailing 1-0 going into the inning. Tanana, a 20-year-old left hander, had allowed only three hits until the fateful inning. But Twins pinch-hitler Joe Us led off the Minnesota eighth with an infield single into the shortstop hole. That brought up Hisle, who Journal SPORTS Fergus Falls (Mn.) Jouraal Saturday, May 18,1974 1Q tried to bunt pinch-runner Sergio Ferrer to second base on the first pitch and hit a foul ball. Then Quilici switched signs, telling Hisle to go for the hit and run. "I thought he was bunting," Tanana said. "1 wanted to throw him a fast ball up and I got it out over the plate too much. It should have been more inside on him, but he didn't bunt it. He hit it pretty good." Quilici said it was the third time this season that Hisle hit a home run on the hit-and-run. "I figured to change up on them after Hisle bunted on the first pitch," Quilici said. "1 put on the hit-and-run, figuring he'd get a fast ball to hit, Hisle did the rest." Hisle, 27, is tied with Bobby Darwin for the Twins' home run lead with six and has batted in 24 runs this season. Hisle averaged .272 last year with 128 strikeouts. "I think I'm more confident at the plate (this year)," Hisle said, "and the manager's confidence in me has helped. I knew he wanted me to bunt tonight with Rod Carew and Tony Oliva coming up behind me .— even against the left- handed pitcher. But I was sure glad to see that he had enough faith in me after the first pitch to give me the hit-and-run. I figured I'd get the fast ball in that situation." Joe Decker picked up his fourth victory on a four-hitter over eight innings. Bill Campbell came in to relieve Decker in the ninth. The two teams meet again at 1:15 p.m. today in the second game of the four-game series. Dave Goltz, 1-0, will start for the Twins against California's Bill Singer, 5-2.

Otters split with Thief River SAN DIEGO (AP) — Veteran defensive end David "Deacon" Jones denied accusations of drug use Friday and said he didn't expect to play for the San Diego Chargers next season. "1 don't think that I'll play another down of pro football in San Diego," the 13-year National Football League veteran said on a radio talk show. "But I will play another year of football, because 1 want to prove to the people that Deacon is a football player and not a drug addict." He said he thought he would be traded. NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle fined Jones, seven other Chargers, General Manager Harland Svare and owner Eugene Klein a total of $40,000 last month for alleged violations of the league's drug policy. "The only thing I'm guilty of is being on a 2-11 team," Jones said, referring to the Chargers' 2-11-1 record. "I will not pay the $3,000 fine because I'm not guilty. Anything that I have taken in the ranks of professional football was prescribed to me by the team physician." Jones has filed a suit against the Chargers alleging breach of contract.

By RALPH BERNSTEIN AP Sports Writer PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia Flyers' official said on radio after Tuesday night's victory over the Boston Bruins in their Stanley Cup playoff: "lyet me be the first to say that the Bruins are dead." Well, that was a mighty live corpse that thumped the Flyers 5-1 Thursday night. The best-of-seven National Hockey League series is now 3-2 Philadelphia with Game 6 on the Flyers' Spectrum ice Sunday afternoon (2:05 P.M. EDT). Should the battling Bruins tie the set, the seventh and deciding game is Tuesday at Boston Gardens where the Fivers have won twice in seven Courtney leads Colonial by one By MIKE COCHRAN Associated Press Writer FORT WORTH, Tex. (AP) A trio of superstars moved into contention, but it was a self- shied scrambler, a Wintu Indian and a former football player who led the way today into the third round of the $250,000 Colonial National Open. "Even Ben Hogan can't hit all the greens on this course— you've got to be able to chip it close and make the putts," theorized Chuck Courtney, recognized as one of the tour's top scramblers. Courtney stripped four shots from Colonial's begrudging par 70 Friday and moved into a one- shot lead at the halfway point of pro golf's first designated tournament. A non-winner this year, Courtney's 36-hole total of 7066—136 was good for a one stroke advantage over first- round leader Hale Irwin, a former University of Colorado football star, and Rod Curl, a personable Wintu Indian. Irwin, suddenly erratic after a spectacular 65 Thursday, carded four birdies, four bogeys, a double bogey and nine pars for a two-over-par 72. Curl shot a 67, and the two were tied at 137. Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and defending champion Tom Weiskopf made bids for the $50,000 top prize, Weiskopf with a 68 that propelled him into fourth place at 138. Nicklaus, despite dumping a wedge shot into the lake near the 18th green, shot a 69 after an opening 71 and headed a group of six at par HO. Nicklaus is one of the "desig- nated" players required to appear here. Trevino matched Nicklaus' 69 but said: "1 should have shot 85. I hit it bad. really bad. I'm gonna practice 'til dark—midnight, if there's a full moon." He collected 14 pars Friday en route to a two-day total of 141, but said "they came out of the river, the traps, the trees, the ball washers and even one woman's purse." Arnold Palmer was the major casualty among the designated players who failed to make the 36-h'ole cut. missing the 146 mark by a sinale stroke with 7473-147. Philadelphia officials are making sure they leave no stone unturned for Sunday's crucial game. The Flyers aren't exactly anxious to again test that Boston Gardens' hex. So, not only will the pre-game National Anthem be replaced with the team's good luck song, Kate Smith's rendition of Irving Berlin's "God Bless America," but Miss Smith will be there in person to sing it. In games where "God Bless America" preempted The Star Spangled Banner, the Flyers are 36-3-1, including their victory here Tuesday night over the Bruins. Ashby wins LEG baseball crown ASHBY - Scot Anderson fanned nine Cyrus batters and teammate Ron Bowman slammed out a three-run home run to lead the Ashby Arrows to an 11-1 win over Cyrus and the Little Eight Conference crown Friday at Ashby. "The last time we won the league baseball title was back in 1961 and it is sure nice to win it again." said Ashby coach Chuck Anderson. On Monday Ashby enters District 21 tournament play al Chokio in a 6 p.m. game against Browns Valley. Ashby was ranked third in District 21 this season.

Rentzel reinstated by Rozelle By HAL BOCK AP Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) — After spending 10 months in the shadows of professional football, I-ance Rentzel was reinstated Friday by National Football league Commissioner Pete Rozelle. "I just can't tell you how happy 1 feel," Rentzel said in Los Angeles after learning that Rozelle had okayed his return. "A lot has changed in my life the past 10 months." Rozelle suspended the Los Angeles wide receiver on July 24, 1973, after Rentzel was arrested, indicted and pleaded guilty to the possession of marijuana. He was sentenced to 90 flays in jail, fined $2,000 and placed on three years probation. At that time, Rentzel was already playing under an NFL probation following his arrest and conviction on an indecent exposure charge on Nov. 30, 1970. He had received a five- year probated sentence for that incident. Rozelle lauded Rentzel's personal conduct during the period of the suspension and said the player had been active in worthwhile volunteer community work during his time out of the game. "I am looking forward to returning to the Rams, I had offers from the World Football I.eague but my loyalty remains with Ix)S Angeles. OPEN BOWLING Saturday and Sunday 1 p.m. to Midnight NORTHERN AIRE LANES Norman hurls 4-2 win past Astros By FRANK BROWN AP Sports Writer In a hospital hundreds of miles from the Houston Astrodome, a 78-year-old father of eight listened to a ball game on his transistor radio. At the ballpark. Fred Norman tried to ease his father's pain with a well-pitched game Friday night. "When 1 was born, he was 47 years old." Norman. 32. said of his father. "He always comes to see me pitch. I wish he had been here tonight, but he just couldn't make it." The youngest Norman, however, nearly did make it. He pitched 81-3 innings of eight-hit baseball, striking out five and walking one while recording a 4-2 victory over the Houston Astros. In other National league games, the St. Louis Cardinals trimmed the Chicago Cubs 9-8. the New York Mets blanked the Montreal Expos 5-0. the San Diego Padres downed the San Francisco Giants 7-3. the Atlanta Braves topped the lx)s Angeles Dodgers 5-3 in 11 innings and ihe Philadelphia Phillies-Pittsburgh Pirates tame was rained out. Norman, over 45 1-3 innings, has surrendered jusl 32 hits and nine runs while striking out 45 and walking only 10. The victors raised his won-lost record to 3-3 and lowered his earned run average to 1.59. Houston Manager Preston Gomez didn't seem especially impressed after his team's seventh consecutive loss. "We've got no hitting, that's all," Go- mez said. But the Astros didn't get much fielding, either, as errors brought home three of Cincinnati's runs. Two scored on Houston pitcher Claude Osteen's wild throw to the plate in the fourth. Doug Rader's fifth home run of the season broke Norman's string of 24 innings without an earned run. Cards 9, Cubs 8 Ted Simmons drove in three runs with a first-inning homer, then broke an 8-8 tie with a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning to carry the Cardinals past Chicago. The Cubs rallied from a 6-1 deficit to come within 6-5, and after St. l.ouis made it 8-5, Chicago scored three runs in their half of the eighth to lie it. Billy Williams had four runs batted in for the Cubs -two of them on his fifth-inning home run. Don Kessinger contributed four hits for Chicago and drove in two runs. Mets 5, Expos 0 "It's a start," said New York right-hander Tom Seaver after his 13-strikeout four-hitter blanked Montreal. Seaver, last season's Cy Young Award winner, had slumped to a 1-i record and a 3.5 earned run average. But Friday's game may have marked a turnaround. Rusty Staub stroked a two- run homer on loser Balor Moore in the third inning for all the runs Seaver needed. Padres 7, Giants 3 Nate Colbert's fifth career grand slam home run helped San Diego defeat San Francisco and end a nine-game losing string. The blast capped a five- run Padres first inning. Enzo Hernandez singled and Enzo Hernandez hit a sacrifice fly to bring home the other two San Diego runs. Bobby Bonds had a two-run double and Ken Rudolph's single drove in the Giants' runs. Braves 5, Dodgers 3 Pinch-hitter Mike Lum, given life when Ron Cey dropped his foul fly in the llth inning, drove a two-run double to center field to score the winning runs for Atlanta. Jimmy Wynn drove in two runs for the Dodgers with a triple and a double. The Dodgers' nine-game winning streak was stopped.
