Expos Beat Reds on Hit By Colbert The Auoci*led Frtu The Montreal Expos shocked the Cincinnati Reds for the second time in three games and Tom Seaver became the National League's first 14-game winner in Saturday's major league baseball action. · Nate Colbert singled home two runs in the eighth inning, leading the Expos to a 4-2 triumph over the Reds. Before losing two of the last three games to the Expos, the runaway Reds had won 10 straight prior to the All-Star break. A single by Pete Mackanin, a walk to Jerry Morales and a hit by Barry Foote loaded the bases for Colbert's tie-breaking single up the middle. The Reds had tied Sun Charl July 20, 1975 gima IE Thankful Post Ties For Lead By Ralph Bernitein NORTHFIELD, N.J. (AP) - Sandra Post was thankful. Sandra Palmer called for prayers. Sally Little wanted to get it all over with. The three women, with different reactions, took varied routes Saturday to a share of the lead after three rounds of the $55,000 U.S. Women's Open golf championship. Each had a 54-hole total of 223, seven over par oh the windswept Atlantic City Country Club course and one stroke ahead of another threesome-- teen-age amateur Nancy Lopez and veterans JoAme Garner and Debbie Austin. "I just had to be thankful that I didn't make a seven," said Miss Post, 327-year- old Canadian, after she took a bogey-six on the 18th hole and fell from the top into a tie. 'You Need Prayers' Miss Palmer said the rough was so treacherous that once you got in you were dead. "You need prayers to get out," she said. And Miss Little, who rallied from a bad first round, "I feel great. I really do. Iwant to go out and get it over with right now." Miss Lopez started the day tied with Miss Post for the lead but skied to a five- over-par 77-- 224, eight over par on the 6,165- yard Atlantic City Country Club course. ' Defending champion Sandra Haynie and rookie pro Amy Alcott finished the third round at 225, in good position to challenge in Sunday's final round of the 72-hole event worth $9,000 to the winner.

He plays school tennis att Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa, located bewteen Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, just up the road from Turner. Enrollment is 1,100. Thus, his obscurity this week is understandable. But the obscurity is diminishing. With an aggressive style, he's advanced to today's semifinals against second-seeded Bob Deitz as part of an upset-filled week of men's singles, in which eight of 16 seeded players failed to reach the round of 16. The unseeded Edwards has beaten fifth- seeded Mark Hamilton in a third-set tiebreaker and Uth-seeded Jim Fulks, 6-2, 6-2, and vows more aggressiveness today against Deitz. "I watched him play in doubles and I think I think 1 can come in (to the net) on his second serve," Edwards revealed Saturday. "And I'll come in behind my first serve, unless he's hitting the ball past me." Quarterfinal matches in all divisions were completed Saturday, making way for today's semifinals. Originally, the tournament had been scheduled to conclude today, but rain on Friday forced a one-day delay: Finals will be played Monday. · '· * * » ' EDWARDS IS A hustler on the court and quick-handed at the net. "He's quick as a cat/' says Don Fleming, who, as part of (See tennit remits and tchedule on Page 7E) . a fourth-seeded doubles team, was eliminated by Edwards and his father earlier in the week. He's also competing in 'today's mixed doubles semifinals with 14-iyear-old Kim Tyree, whom he hadn't met until this week. He arrived at the tournament without a mixed doubles partner and the pairing was arranged by Maxine Bader, a member of the tournament committee. Tyree is fourth-seeded in women's singles and is one of today's semifinalists. ·.,, Until a few months ago, Edwards maintained a daily routine of running six miles a day, covering the distance in 40 minutes, but is running less these days. ; "I've slacked off to about two miles a day," he says. The opportunity to play tennis wasn't always available to Edwards in Oak Hill. He first developed an interest while attending a tennis camp for three summers beginning at the age of 9 and pursued the sport at the White Oak Country Club, where he practiced with a ball machine. Collins High School offered no interscholastic tennis. He played in a few Public Courts Tournaments and met .with little success, al-. though he once advanced to the semifinals of the 14-and-under division in the days when the tournament contained such divisions. As a freshman at Grinnell in the spring of 1974, he played the No. 6 position, but had advanced to No. 1 by last spring. "Two of the top players graduated," he says. NOTES-Thirteenth-seeded Rick Reynolds, who is scheduled to oppose top-seeded Jamie Ceratti in today's semifinals, indicated Saturday that he may be forced to default because of a job commitment. However, he also said he would try to make arrangements that would permit him to play today. The Madison resident reached the semifinals with a 6-0,6-0 win over Jim McCartney . . . Friday's rain disrupted the schedule and ultimately forced Russ Rollyson to compete in four matches Saturday, two in men's doubles and two in mixed for a total of 10 sets. Edwards and Fulks each played in three. The eighth-seeded team of Roily- son and Jim Applefield upset the third- seeded team of Chuck Moyers and Dan Taylor in three sets to gain a spot in today's semifinals. 3,222 See Red-Hot Blues Defeat Charlies by 4-1 Jocelyne Mary Lou Bourassa 77-76-75-228 Crocker 79--76-73-22B Edwards Scrambles SUTTON, Mass. (AP) - Rookie Danny Edwards birdied his last two holes for a 69, broke out of the most tightlypacked, massive jam of players the tour has seen in years and took the lead Saturday in the $200,000 Pleasant Valley Golf Classic. The 24-year-old Edwards put on a fantastic exhibition of scrambling--he one- putted seven holes in a row at one stretch--on his way to a.threeround total of 207, six-under-par on the hilly, windswept, 7,119- yard Pleasant Valley Country Club course.

L. Hardman All this talk about the Memphis Blues being the toughest team in the International League these days is true. Just ask the Charlies. They were set down with six singles -three of them in one inning for their only run -- in a 4-1 beating inflicted by the Blues before 3,222 fans Saturday .night at Watt Powell Park. A two-run uprising in the seventh broke a 1-1 tie and sewed it up for the Blues, who won their fourth in a row, their sixth in the last seven games and their 25th win in their last 35 games'. "The last time we played them here, they were at their lowest point of the season," said Charlie manager Steve Demeter. "But when we played them out there, they took us two games out of three and we knew they were coming. They got good pitching then and they got some more tonight." Jim Sadowski (6-9) was the victim of the Blues' seventh inning uprising and therefore suffered the defeat. He had previously beaten Memphis twice. Meantime, Chip Lang pitched his fifth win against nine defeats. He went only seven innings before rain came to delay the game 25 minutes. Then Ed Riley came in to twirl the last two innings and gain a save. The Charlies' four game winning streak, therefore, came to an end for the lack of ,some base hits. "This is going to be quite some series." said Detneter, recognizing the fact that the Blues are now only 2Vz games back of the fourth place Charlies. · He blamed it on feeble bats and didn't have anything but good to say about Sadowski's pitching. "He did well," said the Charlie pilot. * * * SADOWSKI HAD walked only two and Franco Sparkles In Steelers Drill LATROBE. Pa. (AP) - Franco Harris gained 54 yards in three carries including a 33- yard run for the only score of the 30-play scrimmage Saturday as the Pittsburgh Steelers ended their first week of training camp. The Most Valuable Player in the Steel- ers 1 Super Bowl inn looked impressive as the firststring offense took on firststring defce before Coacb Chock Noll gave the fa day off Soadajr. had allowed only three hits over six innings when he passed Jerry White to open the seventh. That's when his heartaches began. He fanned Doby Johnson and got Warren Cromartie on an infield out as White moved to second. Juan Navarette after working a 2-0 count, was intentionally walked but this strategy failed as Lang punched a single through the left side of the infield to score White. Jim Cox, who had already rapped Sadowski for a solo homer in the sixth (his seventh of the season) then knocked in his second run with a single down the middle. Johnson's double and Cromartie's triple in the ninth off Craig Caskey got the last Blues run. The Charlies had scored their only run to tie the score at 1-1 in.the sixth on singles by Craig Reynolds, Willie Randolph and Eddie Ott. Sadowski wasn't displeased with his performance but recognized the fact that he didn't have much to work on with only one Charlie run. "I did keep the ball down," he said, "and that's what I hadn't been doing before. I thought my pitchers were moving well and my control was pretty good." He walked four -- one intentionally. On the home run pitch to Cox, Jimmy said he simply made a mistake by throwing a curve ball down and in. "We try to pitch him to the outside and I tried to get the pitch there but it got inside Standings Satin-day's ftamti Memphis 4, CHARLESTON 1 Tidewater 6, Rochester 5 Richmond at Syracuse, ppd. rain Pawtacke: 8-7, Toledo 5-6 Friday's Cattm CHARLESTON 4, Pawiuckct 3.

The Blues are the hottest team in the league, according to manager Karl Kuehl, "because they have matured." He says it is not surprising to him. "I felt early in the season that we would get it all together." Kuehl added. "We have a good bullpen now and we're getting some good hitting, especially from (Ellis) Valentine and (Hal) Breeden. Our pitching has been a lot better all season than it has shown." He looks for his team to make a real run for the higher places in the league . . . Mike Kavanagti. who had a 9-6 record at Shreveport, was in uniform Saturday night. He said his buddy, left-handed pitcher Randy Hopkins, was enroute by automobile . . . Miguel Dilone, Charleston's base stealing king, was out of the lineup Saturday night, "nursing a bruised right thumb. "It's nothing serious," said Trainer Red Hartman. "He'll be okay Sunday" . . . "Well, they haven't gotten me out yet," joshed new third sacker Fernando Gonzalez as he went into his first game Saturday night. That's because he hadn't played his first game. He came from the Mexican League, where he had been hitting "about 290" as a second baseman...
