R. McLendon who took a golf lesson by long distance tele phone earlier this week, fired a three-under par 67 Friday and took a one-stroke second round lead in the $100,000 Memphis Open Golf Tournament: He had a 36-hole total of 132. But Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus closed in on the leader1 with determined five-under-par 65s, leaving Palmer only two strokes off the pace at 134 and Nicklaus three strokes at 135. Palmer's 65 equals his best score of the year. Bob Lunn of Sacramento, Cal who was tied with McLendon for the first round lead at 65, weathered four consecutive bunker and sand trap situations to shoot 68 Friday.

He one-put ted nine greens. Tied with Lunn in second place at 133 were first year pro Larry Hinson of Douglas, and veteran LouG a a of Nashville, Tenn. Both shot 66s. Bunched with Palmer at 134 were Jack McGowan, Dick Crawford, Gay Brewer and Dick Mayer. Bob Goalby, 1968 Masters champ," and Ken Still shot 66s for a two-day total of 135.

Willie Mays' first-inning single, knocking in San Francisco's first run, moved him into fourth place in the all-time total base list. He added a ninth-inning single for 5,103. He replaced Tris Speaker. The Giants made it 2-0 in the second inning on Ron Hunt's run scoring single and upped their margin to 4-0 in the sixth off losing pitcher Ken Holtzman, 3-3. Singles by Matty Alou and Maury Wills plus an error accounted for a Pittsburgh run 4n the first and his by Bill Mazer-oski, and Jerry May and Blass' sacrifice fly made it 2-0 in the second.

The Pirates scored their final run in the top of the fifth when Gene Alley singled, stole second and third and scored on Blass' second sacrifice fly. It was the second straight victory for Pittsburgh.

Foster had been riding along behind a stinging left jab, pep pering his squat opponent at ease until he loaded a left hook that flattened Tiger for the count. It was the first time in Tiger's 77-bout career that he had been stopped.

Stargell doubled in the Pi rates' two-run third inning and hit a sacrifice fly in a three-run fourth. Pitcher Steve Blass, 2-2, drove in two runs with sacrifice flies.

The Reds' scored three more in the fifth, all unearned, to ome within three runs of the Pirates but they couldn't get any closer as Ron Kline, who relieved Blass in the filth, shut the door. Phils' Bobby Wine Undergoes Examination PHILADELPHIA (AP) Shortstop Bobby Wine of the Philadelphia Phillies entered Temple University Hospital Friday for tests and study of a recurrent back ailment. Wine, who has played in 27 games this season, hitting .169, has been used sparingly in the past week because of his back condition. The infielder has been bothered the past three years with what physicians term a disintegrated disc.

The condition is -considered serious enough that it could end Wine's baseball career. A Phillies' spokesman said the tests would determine whether an operation is necessary. Manager Gene Mauch has been using Roberto Pena at shortstop. The Phillies meanwhile, got better reports on two other Second baseman Cookie Rojas, who did not make the current trip to St. Louis, said his lower back sprain appeared to be clearing up.

Catcher Mike Ryan, who had a sore arm, made the trip and is expected to play against lefthand-ed pitching. Grid Coach Named LEWISTOWN, Pa.

Their only loss came in the last game when Chestnut Ridge whitewashed them 2 0. Harry Trynham, the Bison shortstop, paced the Bedford County loop in hitting this year with a .500 average. He went 17 for 34 in leading the Bisons. Other strong hitters are Paul Purdew Bob Deremer (.390) Jim Aljen Bob Kegg (310), Roger Nee 290), and Mike Zimmerman 220. Zimmerman, although bat ting only .220, is the Bisoji slug' ger.

He hit two homers tor Bed' ford, but his power is not con sistant. Zimmerman bats clean up for the Bisons. Jim Allen is the other Bed ford slugger. He also clobbered two homers this season. Coach Waltman has only one problem that must be decided before Saturdays game That Is who to play in right field.

Tom Rogish has played most of the season. Waltman will pick among Rogish, John Black, Ricky Foor, and John Sone for his rightfielder. Bob Deremer will start for Bedford. He is 4-1 overall and averages 14 strikeouts a game, his hieh being 16. "The game is riding on Deremer," declared Waltman.

"If he has his stuff, we have a good chance of winning." Bedford has a strong infield and catching. Its only weak spot moter, Vince McMahon, had guaranteed Tiger $100,000 to get the match for-Foster. It probably cost him money. His 6fyper cent of the gate Tiger's 40 per cent and his. own 20 per cent probably did not come to that figure.

Foster was out in front on all three official cards at the knockout. Referee Mark Conn and Judge Tony Castellano had it 3-0 and Judge Artie Aidala 2-1, giving the first to Tiger. The AP card was 3-0 for Foster, a It was a strange looking fight between the 6-foot-3V4 Foster and the 5-foot-8 Tiger. Foster, 29, weighed 173Vi, Tiger 168. Shuffled around in the background while others got a chance to fight for the title, Foster once quit the ring for a year.

He made good with a vengeance when he finally gotj his shot. The towering Foster, who looked more like a basketball player than a fighter, kept stinging Tiger with long left jabs. Tiger, who usually comes on late, was unable to get unpacked. Tiger threw only a few flurries, trying to get inside to the bPdy, but was unableto reach the big fellowwith any consistency. Jt was the ninth straight victory for Foster since he lost a decision toheavyweight Zora Fol-ley in 1965.

His record for 34 pro starts now is 30-4. TJiis was his 24th knockout. Tiger now is 58-16-3 for 77 bouts. Tiger was making the third defense of the crown he won from Jose Torres, Dec. 16, 1966.

He previously held the world middleweight title on two different occasions. Foster had been beating a steady tattoo on Tiger's face with his jab for a minute and a half of the fourth, when Tiger; dug a right to the body and twisted his foe around near the ropes. -1 Shortly after they broke, Foster dropped in the left hand that ended his long quest for a championship. The bout was seen on a limited home television network but was blacked out in New York. It was the second boxing show in the new Garden where Joe Fra-zier won the New York version of the heavyweight title in March.

(AP) An experimental baseball game to test a rules change suggested by a Penn State professor was rained out Friday. A spokesman for the Nittany Lion baseball team said the scheduled intersquad game has been postponed indefinitely.
