They took the nightcap 5-4 on the late hitting of rookie outfielder Charlie Manuel.

ANNES, England CAP) — England's Tony Jacklin set out today on the golden trail in the world of golf and for once the Big Three of the past decade were on the sidelines. The Big Three never figured in the. 1969 British Open Goif Championships which 25-year- old Jacklin returned to his home shores by shooting a four-under-par 280 over 72 holes last week.

Md. lAPi The mystery around the retirement of quarterback Earl Morrall from the Baltimore Colts remains up in the air. After conferring with Coach Don Shula. Morrall said Sunday night he would decide in a few days whether he would continue his career in the National Football League.

Beard Grabs Firsf Win af Minnesota Ry BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer ED1NA' Minn. (AP) - Frank Beard, spurred on by a common fly. was elated at last, weary and far from satisfied in the wake of his victory in the $110,000 Minnesota Golf Classic. "You have certain goals," the articulate, intelligent man from Louisville said after his resounding triumph. "One win doesn't do it. You have a lot to prove. You win one and you want to win two or three more before the year is over. "I never had any doubts about my game or about myself.

And when he broke it. he did it convincingly with a final 6(! for 269 — 15-under par — and a seven-stroke margin, matching the biggest victory margin of the year. Oddly enough it was a par- one he almost didn't get—that Beard cited as the turning point of his round. "H was on the fifth hole," he said. "I had about a 30-foot birdie putt. Just as I was about to strike the ball, a fly landed on it. I stepped back and brushed it away. Then, just as I hit the ball the fly landed again and I jumped just a little and I left it six feet short. But 1 made that putt for a par. "Even though the margin turned out to be pretty big, that was the catalyst. That gave me i the momentum. If there was a I turning point, that was it." He had five birdies and not a! bogey in his steady, almost mechanical round. He reached two par fives in two and two- \ putted, birdied two par threes j from six and 12 feet and pitched ; to within four feet on the ninth hole for a bird that gave him; a five-stroke lead. i The victory was worth $20,000, i pushed his earnings past $95.000 i for the year, put him in sight of' his third consecutive $100,000; year but came al a cost. : "I'm very tired," he said.
