Journal SPORTS Fergus Falls (Mn.) Journal Wed., May 29,1974 1Q By FRED ROTHENBERG AP Sports Writer Gaylord Perry says he's now on a grease-free diet, but his victory column hasn't lost any weight. "I'm just not using the greaseball anymore, not since the crackdown," said Perry, whose bread-and-butter pitch used to be more butter than bread. But going straight hasn't hindered Perry's effectiveness. Tuesday night, the 35-year- old Perry became the win- ningest pitcher in the major leagues this year when he checked Texas on five hits and the Cleveland Indians blanked the Rangers 8-0. Since an opening day loss to the Yankees, Perry has been as unhittable as a greaseball, building an eight-game winning streak. Elsewhere in the American League, the Boston Red Sox clubbed the Minnesota Twins 95; the New York Yankees edged the Chicago White Sox 3-2 in 10 innings; the Kansas City Royals downed the Baltimore Orioles 9-5 in 11 innings, the Milwaukee Brewers stopped the California Angels 6-2 and the Detroit Tigers beat the Oakland Astiby blanks Evansville 13-0 EVANSVILLE - Scot Anderson fired a one-hitter and was 2 for 4 at the plate, including a home run, and was credited with 5-RBIs to lead Ashby to a 13-0 victory over Evansville Tuesday. Ashby won the Little Eight Conference with a 6-1 record. The Arrows finished its season. with an impressive 11-2 record. Steve Benson helped Anderson out in the hitting department with a triple and a double for 2-RBls.

The 72 hole test, which gets underway Thursday on the beautifully-conditioned, 7,085 yard, par 72 Quail Hollow Country Club course, is the second of the "designated tournaments," a new concept being tried this season. The first of the "designated tournaments," events in which the game's leading players are required to compete, was held Spuds defending champions 282 girls to compete in state track meet The first annual track and field championships for girls sponsored by the Minnesota State High School League will be conducted at Richfield High School on Saturday, June 1. Competition begins with preliminaries in the running events at 9:30 a.m. Preliminaries and finals in the shot put and long jump begin at 9:30. a.m. The championship finals begin at 2:00 p.m. High jump competition begins at 1:00 p.m. and discus competition begins at 1:30 p.m. The meet will be conducted on the Richfield School's new Chevron Track. This excellent new facility and a top field of performers promises you an opportunity to witness championship caliber performance and the establishing of a host of new state records. Two hundred and eighty-two girls representing 111 schools, will be competing in this meet. All of the competitors have qualified to the state meet through district and regional eliminations. Moorhead Hi^h School is the defending state girls track champion. They bring a strong team to defend their title as they expect a challenge from White Bear l,ake and St. Cioud Apollo. just two weeks ago in the Colonial National at Fort Worth, Tex. It was the first time the touring prodessionals had been stripped of their jealously guarded right to pick and choose their tournaments; they were forced to play or face penalties up to and including a suspension of their right to play on the tour. Their reactions ranged from enthusiastic acceptance by Lee Trevino to outright rejection by Arnold Palmer, from a "wait and see" attitude by Jack Nicklaus to a change of heart by Tom Weiskopf, once strongly opposed to the plan. Now Gary Player has added his voice to those who wonder if the new idea is the answer. "I don't like it," said Player, the little South African who won the Masters and added a second American title in last week's Danny Thomas-Memphis Classic. "When and if they go to 10 designated tournaments, you'd be locked into your schedule. You'd have no flexibility at all. It would be very, very difficult for me." BOSTON (AP) —. Veteran second baseman Dick McAuliffe, filling in for injured Doug Griffin, is the only Boston Red Sox' starter batting under .200, and he couldn't care less. "1 don't care if I hit .200 as averages don't really mean that much," McAuliffe said Tuesday night. "Alllwant to do is help the club win. If I can do the job in the field and drive in a few runs to help I'll be satisfied. The average will take care of itself." McAuliffe, acquired from Detroit last fall and pressed into steady duty when Griffin was hit on the head by a pitch last month, broke out of a slump with a key homer as the Red Sox defeated the Minnesota Twins 9-5 for their ninth victory in the last 10 games. Held hitless for three innings by Minnesota starter Bert Blyleven, the Red Sox jumped on the right-hander for three runs in the fourth. Then McAuliffe, O-for-13 at the plate, belted his third homer into the right field stands, triggering a five-run fifth. "I've been hitting the ball pretty well, but it's been going right at someone or straight into a headwind like over the weekend," McAuliffe said. "So that felt a little extra good when I saw the ball going into the *** MINNESOTA BOSTON. ab r h Di ab r h oi Carewft 5130 Bervqueicf J 1 10 Braunll 1110 CooperIb 5 2 1 1 hi^ell 1000 DEvan&rf A 1 ?

"Dick has been playing great ball for us so we kind of got a little extra kick when he finally connected," Boston manager Darrell Johnson said. "One thing was sure: no one was going to catch that one." After McAuliffe's blast, Mario Guerrero singled and Juan Beniquez sacrificed. Hot- hitting Cecil Cooper singled for one run. Then a hit batsman and singles by Bernie Carbo, Rico Petrocelli and Carlton Fisk provided three more tall- ies and an 8-1 lead. The Twins pounded Boston starter Reggie Cleveland, 3-5, for nine hits in the first five innings, but left nine runners on base while managing_ just one run. Tony Oliva, who'had four hits, finished with four RBI with a three-run homer in the sixth and a single in the eighth. '•'We've got !a great bunch of guys on this club and they work like heck," Minnesota manager Frank Quilici said. "Maybe they're trying too hard, particularly when we have so many chances as in the first five innings. They could be putting pressure on themselves." On a positive note, Minnesota's Rod Carew had three hits, boosting his average back to .405. And Beniquez and Dwight Evans extended personal hitting streaks for Boston to 11 games. The Red Sox try for a sweep of the series tonight, sending Dick Drago, 4-1, to the mound against the Twins' Dave Goltz, 1-0.

T— i 34 A PITTSBURGH (AP) - In the space of just the past couple of weeks, the face of women's intercollegiate sports in Pennsylvania has changed completely. Recruiting, athletic scholarships, summer sports camps and even televised games are either realities or being planned. The first public word came Friday, when it was learned Penn State had approved as many as 50 athletic scholarships for women starting this fall. Not counting its 100 football grants, Penn State awards about 100 athletic scholarships to men. While Penn Stale was deciding about granting scholarships to women, the University of Pittsburgh was recruiting. And Pitt has been so successful, says basketball coach Sandra Bullman, that "we're going to win a national championship with these girls." But from the defending national champions, Immaculata College of Malvern, Pa., comes a challenge. "Tell Pitt to add us to their schedule," said coach Cathy Rush. Her teams have compiled a 74-4 record the past four sea- Another Rofh record tied Aaron homers Braves to win By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer Hank Aaron is not through chasing Babe Ruth, it seems. And you thought it was all over when he hit No. 715 earlier this year. In April, the Atlanta slugger hit the shot heard 'round the world by surpassing Ruth's famous 714 lifetime home run fig ure. But there was another Ruthian record that even Aaron himself didn't know about—730 homers including World Series and All-Star games. He tied it Tuesday night with a homer that beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 in 10 innings. 'Oh. no. you're kidding!" Aaron exclaimed upon learning of the feat. "I thought that I had gotten rid of Ruth's records once and for all. I guess the Ruth thing will be with me for the rest of my life." The blast, ninth this year and 722nd of his career in regular season games, ended a longball drought for the classy Brave hitter. He hadn't hit a baseball out of the park since May 12. In the National League's other games, the Los Angeles Dodgers routed the St.Louis Cardinals 11-5; the Cincinnati Reds tripped the New York Mets 7-2 and the Houston Astros trimmed the Montreal Expos 84. Aaron's homer over the center field fence came off Philadelphia right-hander Jim Loi> borg on a "hard slider." Lonborg, the 1967 American league Cy Young award winner, gave up four hits while walking none and striking out two. Dodgers H, Cards 5 Home runs by Ken McMullen and Joe Ferguson keyed a 20hit attack that propelled Los Angeles over St. IxHiis. Both homers, McMullen's second of the baseball season and Ferguson's fifth, were two- run blasts off one-time Dodger pitcher Alan Foster, who was chased after 2 2-3 innings. Reds 7, Mets 2 Johnny Bench belted a two- run homer and Merv Retten- mund added a solo shot, powering Cincinnati past New- York. It was the Reds' fifth straight victory, their longest winning streak of the season. Astros 8, Expos 4 Houston tagged Montreal ace Steve Rogers for five runs in the first inning, helped by Lee May's two-run single, and went on to defeat the Expos. American League scores: Boston 9, Minnesota 5; New York 3, Chicago 2 in 10 innings: Kansas City 9, Baltimore 5 in 11; Cleveland 8, Texas 0; Detroit 3, Oakland 1 and Milwaukee 6, California 2. sons. Her husband, Ed, an official in the National Basketball Association for seven years until he switched to the rival American Basketball Association this past season, said Immaculata's following is growing by leaps and bounds. Rush said next year's team has been scheduled into Madison Square Garden and will play twice in Philadelphia's basketball shrine, the Palestra. And there is more. "We are very, very close to signing a television contract," Rush.said. "The interest is definitely there, and women's basketball will definitely be a major spectator sport in the future." The rush to financial aid for women- athletes and the upgrading of long-neglected women's sports programs around the nation has been prompted by a set of guidelines being drafted by the federal Depart- Harvey begins defense of amateur PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) Bill Harvey of Jamestown, N.C., was scheduled to begin defense of his title today in the 72-hole Amateur Classic Golf Tournament. The former Walker Cup player, a tournament amateur for 20 years, won last year's medal play event in a tight battle with Beii C'renshaw, now a touring pro, and Walker Cuppers Danny Edwards of Oklahoma State and Mike Killian of the University of Florida. The four-day run of fifth annual tournament is being held on the Pensacola, Santa Rosa Shores. Scenic Hills and Perdido Country Club courses. The field includes Curtis Person, 63, of Memphis, Term., the 1973 Southwest seniors king and U.S. seniors victor in 1968 and 1969, anf Marvin "Vinnie" Giles of Richmond, Va., a former U.S. Amateur champion ment of Health, Education and Welfare. It is believed they will call at least for equal opportunities for women athletes in colleges and universities receiving federal funds. Ignoring the guidelines could mean loss of the federal money. Penn State, with 10 years of intercollegiate women's athletics behind it, doesn't have as far to go as many schools. Its assistant athletic director, Delia Durant, is a woman. Its women have an entire building for their program, and they receive an increasingly large share of the athletic budget. The decision to start awarding scholarships, for example, probably adds 50 per cent to this year's estimated intercollegiate expenditures of $40,000 for women. In contrast, the mens' teams, not counting football, spent about $280,000 this year. "But that's deceptive," said retiring asketball coach Mary- arm Domitrovitz. "We get all the support, in terms of money, equipment, advice and encouragement, that we need." Esposito denies he was 'quitter' VANCOUVER (AP) - Phil Esposito Tuesday night denied allegations that he hadn't played his best during the recent National Hockey League Stanley Cup playoffs. The Boston Bruins' star center, asked about former Boston Coach Bep Guidolin calling him a quitter, said, "If Guidolin thinks that scoring 76 assists and 68 goals is quitting, then he can go to hell." Guidolin left the Bruins earlier this week. Esposito, here as a guest speaker at the British Columbia Sports Hall of Fame Banquet of Champions Tuesday, said his problems with Guidolin began near the end of the 1973-74 sea- son'when the Bruins suspended Derek Sanderson and he "stuck up for Derek. He is a real friend of mine and I think that when I'm friends with someone I really stick by them. Derek is not a troublemaker." Esposito denied Guidolin's allegations that he had been negotiating with two other teams while Bruins were still involved in the playoffs. Asked if he would be talking contract with Jim Pattison, owner of the World Hockey Association Vancouver Blazers, Esposito said, "I don't talk money. During a season I'll hear a lot of figures thrown about but I tell people to just talk to my lawyer. "When we get down to the basic things, then my attorney calls me in." Esposito has one year remaining on his contract with Boston. SPORT SHORTS The Sherry brothers are managing minor league baseball teams. Ex-pitcher Larry pilots the Charleston, W.
