M4 4 w. 1 A Strange day kt U.S. Open ROCHKST HR. N Y (P) It was a Strange day at the lis Ojien ! There was the flurry of ones, an incredible, record set-tig sprte in which four men scored holes in one, all on the sme hole, all using the same club and all within a jieriod o 1 hour and 50 minutes jThere was a 14 minute storm delay, an occurrance that hits become common in this weather plagued golf season And there was Curtis Strange, the defending title holder n) the American national championship, who came jxiund-njg out of the pack with a 64 that provided him a 1 stroke lead Friday at the tournament's halfway jioint Strange, challenging some Ben Hogan marks across the decades, Brushed two trijis over the rain-soaked Hast course at Oak Hill in 135, 5 under par tilts 64, one shot off the all time Open single-round record, matched the course standard set by the great Ilo-gjn In 1942 I And the spectacular effort put him in jiosition to become ; first man since Hogan in 1951 to make a successful defense of the U.S Open title But Strange has two rounds to go, another 36 holes And even Stranges seven-birdie heroics was not enough to give him breathing room. Tom Kite, whose impressive record lacks only a major-tumament title, hung grimly on Strange's heels with a 69 tiat left him one behind at 136, Jack Nicklaus, however, faded I'm disappointed I couldn't keep it all together, Nicklaus said after struggling to a 74 Nicklaus, 49, holder of a record 18 major professional tttles, entered the days play a stroke off the pace and eBtertaimng thoughts of a record fifth U S. Open title. I But he had problems over the front nine, then couldnt g4t the putts to fall on the back side and finished at 141, six snots back. Scott Simpson, the 1987 Open champion, had a 70 and vas tied for third at 137 with Jay Don Blake. Blake, who hasnt finished higher than third in a three-season Tour career, hung in with a 71. I Ian Woosnam, the 5-foot-5 Welshman called Little Woo-sje" by his fellow pros on the European Tour, and Mark McCumber each had a 68 and were Bed at 138. No one else was under par for two trips over the rain-siaked course. f Bernhard Langer of West Germany and Payne Stewart, who shared the first-round lead with Blake, drifted back. Stewart was 75-141 and Langer blew to a 78 that left him at Sm U.S. OPEN Pag C3 Erica Jacksons defense surprised All-Star coaches By AL LESAR Tftbun Sport Wnlf INDIANAPOLIS If Erica Jackson was going to be selected lo the Indiana Girls Ml Star basketball team, she figured it would be her offense that drew the attention in her direction Being the most prolifu scorer in Elkhart Memoni High School girls basket ball history held some merits Or so she Ihought "When I went down to the Top 40 tryouts, I had no idea that I would make the jack soft team," Jackson said "I just played my best and didnt worry about whether or not I got pu k(-d "I didn't have a very good dav al all I was kind of disapjxunted Then I heard Ihese coaches talking about the great job I did on defense I never realized I was playing that welt It s one of those things vou don't notice As it turns out.

MONTREAL (AP) Bryn Smith wishes he could pitch more. Smith heljied Montreal move into first place in the National League East Friday night as Hubie Brooks and Andres Galarraga each had three hits and two RBIs, leading the Expos past the Chicago Cubs 8-5. Smith, 7-2, allowed five runs and nine hits in eight-plus innings as Montreal won for the fourth time in as many games against Chicago this season and took a one-half game lead over the Cubs. Tim Burke got the last three outs for his 14th save, after Smith allowed lead-off singles in the ninth. They must know what day it is, said Smith, who has been backed with an average of more than six runs a game this season. The key to being a successful pitcher is winning when you have mediocre stuff like I did tonight, Smith said. Brooks doubled home two runs and scored on Mike Fitzgeralds single as Montreal scored three runs in the first inning off Paul Kilgus, 5-6 "We needed everything we got tonight," Brooks said. "It doesn't matter how many runs you get against these guys, they can score runs." Damaso Garcia drove in a run with a fielders choice grounder and Galarraga added a run-scoring single to make it 5-0 after four innings. The Cubs scored twice in the fifth on an RBI single by Dwight Smith and a run-scoring double by Ryne Sandberg. Brooks and Tim Wallach started the Expos fifth with consecutive singles. Spike Owen singled, scoring Brooks and sending Wallach to third. Wallach was picked off third by catcher Damon BerryhiU, but scored when third base-man Vance Laws throw hit him on the helmet during the rundown. Sandberg made it 7-3 with his 10th home run S CUBS Pag C3 Fittipaldi on provisional pole for Detroit Grand Prix Sunday DETROIT (AP) - Emerson Fittipaldi came out on top in a very competitive qualifying session Friday, winning the provisional pole for Sundays first Detroit Grand Ffix featuring Indy cars. The Brazilian, driving the same Penske PC18-Chevrolet in which he won the Indianapolis 500, got around the bumpy, twisting 2-inile, 17-turn downtown street circuit in oe minute, 42.631 seconds, a speed of 87.693 nh- Michael Andretti, still looking for his first victory of the season, was just .048 seconds behind at 87.652 mph. lAl Unser Jr., the CART-PPG series point lqpder, was next at 87.562, followed by Mario Andretti at 86.665, Indy-car rookie Scott Pruett at 86.297, Rick Mears at 86.209 and Teo Fabi of Italy at 86.156. Fabi, driving a Porsche-powered March, was one of the quicker drivers early in the 30-minute session for the faster cars. But he ran out of gas about halfway through and spent the final 15 minutes sitting behind a wall on the back side of the track. Michael Andretti, Unser, Pruett and Fabi all led at least once during the first of two qualifying sessions. Fittipaldi, who also led earlier, wrested the top spot from Andretti moments before the end. The final session, which will set the 28-car field, ts scheduled today. The fast lap by each car during the two qualifying periods will determine the line up for Sundays race. Rounding out the top 10 Friday were Bobby Rahal at 85.359 mph, Arie Luyendyk of The Netherlands at 85.191 and Danny Sullivan at 85.036. Sullivan, who broke his right forearm in a crash during practice last month at Indy, is driving this week with a new brace designed to let him turn both right and left, rather than just left as he would be doing on an oval track. Theres some pain, he said. This isnt real comfortable and the cars not right yet, but well be OK. Fittipaldis fast lap was considerably slower than the track record of 89.458 (1:40.606), sqt last year by Ayrton Senna of Brazil in qualifying for the last of seven Formula One events here. The Indy cars are about 150 pounds heavier and their restricted engines produce between 300 and 400 less horsepower than the Formula One cars. The cars are different and we have different rules,.explained the 42-year-old Fittipaldi, a two-time Formula One champion. You cannot compare the two (series). If we Md to make a race against Formula One, wed make the cars much faster. Wed take away the.(popoff) valve and get maybe 1,000 horsepower. , Looking ahead to todays time trials, both of the fast drivers said they expect the speeds to climb. I think the speeds will be quite a bit quicker tomorrow unless it gets real hot, Andretti said. I think its probably going to take a 41 (1:41) to will the pole. Fittipaldi spent some time recently with Senna, his countryman and a three-time Detroit winner. Senna warned him how difficult the circuit is. He was right, Fittipaldi said. Its a very challenging track, not easy to drive. He gave me some good advice. Andretti, sitting next to the provisional pole winner, asked what that advice was. i Fittipaldi replied: Ill tell you Sunday I night. j wisil tra.K ov rrj 'i rl If.fc. uni HtuUhrf Hu! 1 TJl 5l 1 usc-d Itlj i E j a'J rx-J tfirm i-ff stitilr Axl !frr, hr. them with I.'" fastbdli ( rva r Krrr.hard! t x'.r'sdrxl his hiding stir to rvirtr gn rs bs GuggUg A HlJ'ir ! l.i vingK-s Hr ibusr 111 lu lu trtlrus- fjs Irani trad lo 4?
