Gimeno 3reezes to Pro Net Titles Santo Extends Streak in Split With Pittsburgh CHICAGO . (AP) Ron Santo extended his consecutive game hitting streak to 27 Monday, rapping a run scoring single in the seventh inning that snapped a tie and sparked the Chicago Cubs to a 6-4 victory over Pittsburgh in the nightcap of a doubleheader; called after V2 innings because of darkness. ' .. . The Pirates won the opener 7-5 as Willie Stargell hit a threerun honier and Gene Alley connected with one on. Santb's streak, longest in the majors this season, ties the Cub record held by Hack Wilson. Santo, who grounded out and walked twice in his first three at-bats, delivered the lead run in the seventh after Glenn Beckert led off with a double and Don Cardwell walked Billy Williams intentionally. After Santo's.hit, Billy O'-Dell replaced Cardwell and walked John Boccabella with the bases loaded. S a n't b, the National League's All-Star third base man who missed sevei games last week with a frac tured cheek bone, collected two singles and a homer in the first game, his first appearance since June 26. The Cubs had tied the second game in'. the sixth when Pete Mikkelsen walked pinch hitter Marty Keough, forcing in a run. Solo homers in the second and fourth innings by Don Clen-denon had launched the Pirates into the lead. In the opener, Stargell slammed a three-run homer in the first inning and Alley hit a two-run homer in the seventh. Stargell's 19th blast came after Alley had singled "and Roberto Clemente walked. Alley's homer, scored pitcher Vern Law who had singled for his third straight hit. Randy Hundley homered for the Cubs in the third and Adolfo Phillips and Santo did the same in a three-run MAlOU cf 3 0 2 1 Mien SS 5 2 2 2 : emente. rf 4 2 2 0 Gonder, ,c - 3 T.I mazrosKi 2D 3 13 Face P 0 0 0 Phil lie rf All SMELiU 2 3 Santo 3b 4 T 3 1 0 0 0 HundTe ye 4 12 0 Stewart pr 0 0 0 0 Hands p 0 0 0 JCoonce p 10 0 Hoedl p ooo LTrtomas phjoo 7? 5h J8 Alou.

(Staff Photo by Tony Wood) Nicklaus, Player Edge Teen Stars MUIRFIELD, Scotland (AP) Two teen-age whiz kids of golf took on the professional giants of the world Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player in practice Monday for the British Open golf championship and came, out of the challenge smelling like roses. Bobby Cole, 18-year-old South African who won the British Amateur title at Carnoustie a month ago, teamed with Peter Townsend, 19-year-old phenomenon of England and lost by a narrow 2 and 1 margin. Nicklaus, the blond belter from Columbus, Ohio, shot five straight 3s in the trip to the 17th hole where the match ended and that was the difference. Nicklaus had a 68, three under Muirfield's 6.887-yard, par 71. Together with Player, they had a best ball of 65. Cole and Townsend had a best ball of 67. "That boy Cole has real method," said Nicklaus. "And Townsend hits the ball very far for a skinny kid." Said Townsend afterward: "It was a little awe-inspiring to be playing Nicklaus and Player, even in a friendly practice, but we soon got over it. "I think I got over it at the fifth where I got a good four-wood on the green and holed a 20-footer for a 3." That was an eagle on the 516-yard hole. The youngsters were all square at the 154-yard, par 3 13th where both got birdies. Then Nicklaus uncorked two birdie 3s, a par 3 and an eagle 3 to settle the issue. "Those kids are just great," Player said. He was particularly enthusiastic about his fellow South African. The course, dry after days of sun and wind, was crowded with the practicing professionals and top amateurs who make up the field of 130 which tees off for the 72-hole grind Wednesday morning. Doug Sanders had his first real trip around the course and commented, as many others have done, on the wild rough allowed to grow and pinch the fairways into narrow slots. "Just let me have the lost balls and hay concession and I'll be the leading money winner," the Georgia native wisecracked. Julius Boros, the former U. S. Open champion, also saw Muirfield for the first time and said he was taking it easy because he has an injured elbow. "I got into the rough but hit another ball each time rather than play out of it," Boros said. "I don't want to aggravate the injury." Many of the pros put their drivers away rather than try to solve the narrow saucers where the high weeds Nicklaus used three-woods and one-irons mostly from the tees. Player was a little bolder, perhaps because Muirfield holds no real terrors for him at the moment. He won his first big one, the British Open, here in 1959 with an even par 284. Jack Stockton Gets Jack Stockton of 4716 NW 30th celebrated the Fourth of July by smashing a 175-yard hole-in-one Monday on the seventh hole of the Lake Hefner south course. Ace at Lake Hefner The 43-year-old golfer col lected his first ace while playing with John Wood, Harry Rosengrants and Frank O'Brien. Stockton finished with a round of 83.

The victory was worth $2,- 700 to Gimeno as his first-place share of the tourney's $15,000 purse. Rosewall collected $2,000 for his runner-up finish. Rol Laver, seeded No. j but upset by Gimeno in Sun day's semifinals, defeatec Mai Anderson for third place, 8-4. The eight-game pro set was decided upon when it became apparent Monday would be another day of 100-degree tempera tures. Second Championship Winning the doubles crown were Laver and Earl "Butch" Buchholz, 6-4, 6-4 over Rosewall and Lew Hoad. Gimeno's championship was his second of this sum mer's International Professional Tennis Association United States tour. He also won at St. Louis two ago, beating Laver in the fi nals. Rosewall was foiled in his bid for a second straight ti tle after winning at Peacock Gap, Calif., last week. Volleys Effective Monday the little Australi- l just couldn't get tracked, and Gimeno, a 6-lVo Dy j.Do-pouna spaniara, carried the fight all the way. Ciimeno . broke' Rosewall' s service on the very first game, hitting his forehand ground strokes with precision and volleying effectively to set a pattern that held up for the rest of the match. Gimeno broke through again on the third game for d-u advantage, and with his big serve clicking (six aces to only one for Rosewall) Rosewall's chances were slim. Racquets Thrown But Ken broke service on the sixth game to pull within 4-2, and when Gimeno en gaged in some racquet throwing antics after dis agreeing with linesmen's calls in the next two games, as if Rosewall's unemotional attack might stand a chance. However, Gimeno pulled himself together, won the set, and gave up only four points on his service throughout the final set. He broke through on the third and ninth games for his vic tory margin. The match lasted only an hour and 10 minutes, but both men were very tired Que to tne neat when it ended. . . SINGLES Anares Gimeno M.70O Atlanta 500 DM terns n.
