The win raised the Tigers' record to 3-2, the only blemishes coming at the hands of Audubon May 31 in a doubleheader that opened the season for Carroll. The big Carroll inning was the fifth, when they sent 12 men to bat, scoring seven runs on three hits. Five bases on balls and one hit batsman helped the cause along. The Tigers had taken a narrow 2-0 lead into the fifth, but Ted Nam opened the frame up with a single and Carroll was on its way. A hit batsman and three straight walks followed to force in a pair of runs for Carroll. The two run-scoring walks came off Audubon -Staff Photo Ted Nam pitcher Don Jacobsen in relief of Mike Smith, who had control problems with the first three batters. Jacobsen then picked up a strike out and a fly out before he forced in another run with a walk. The score was now 5-0. Then Lonnie Lehrkamp smashed a bases-loaded double, scoring all three runners. With the score 8-0, Nam came to the plate for the second time in the inning and slugged a single that scored Lehrkamp. Audubon managed a run in the top of the sixth, but a pair of tallies by the Tigers ended the game in the bottom of the frame. Carroll Coach Ted Edwards had praise for two Tigers in particular. "Nam managed three hits in as many at-bats and Larry Bock handled the catching chores in top-notch fashion," said Edwards. The loss lowered Audubon's record to 2-3 on the season. Next up for the Carroll diamond men is a home, contest against Perry Wednesday at 8 p.m. The encounter will be in Carroll Stadium and will be the first game to count in the conference standings.

(AP) — Who's really No. 1 in college . baseball? Southern California Coach Rod Dedeaux is one person who would like to know, and he has a good candidate for the top spot—his own Trojans. "We've beat one team that was rated No. 1, now we have a chance to see if Miami is the best," said Dedeaux after his team scored a 5-3 victory over Southern Illinois in the 28th College World Series Monday night. That earned Southern California a Wednesday night game against Miami, 50-9, the only other unbeaten still remaining in the double-elimination showdown for the national crown. Southern California came to the series with a 45-19 record- poorest by a Dedeaux-coached team in 22 years—and rated no better than fifth in the poll conducted by Collegiate Baseball newspaper. Texas, which shares the No. 1 poll spot with Miami, was Southern California's first- round victim, and No. 4 Southern Illinois could do no better in stalling the Trojans' bid for a fifth straight title. "We never lost our poise," said Dedeaux about the come- from-behind victory. "It was another excellent example of what I call 'Trojan spirit.' " Miami used a superb clutch pitching .performance to topple Oklahoma 5-1, Southern Illinois downed Seton Hall 5-1 and Texas eliminated Seton Hall 122 in other games on Monday's four-game card. Texas, 53-7, faces Oklahoma, 43-7, and Northern Colorado, 32-12, battles Southern Illinois, 48-11, in losers' bracket elimination games tonight. Southern Illinois took a 3-0 lead in the second inning against Southern California without hitting the ball out of the infield. And the inning also saw home plate umpire Al Alford first call a Southern Illinois runner out at the plate, but later reverse his decision after a lengthy discussion. The unusual play saw Southern Cal catcher Ed Putnam tag the plate and the umpire call the runner out, although there was no force out. "It was a judgement play," said Dedeaux who argued for 15 minutes, but to no avail. "The umpire obviously judged the runner out. He made the decision, and he should have stuck by it." Two Southern Illinois errors helped the Trojans score two runs in the fourth and they took the lead in the sixth on a double, a fielder's choice, Ken Huizenga's run-scoring single and a double by freshman Bobby Mitchell. Mark Barr, younger brother of the San Francisco Giants' Jim, was the winning pitcher, tossing a five-hitter and striking out eight to run his record to 10-1. "Mark did an outstanding job, just what our 'salty veterans' are supposed to do when the chips are down," said Dedeaux. "He kept his poise after a very bad inning (the second). Southern Illinois Coach Richard "Itchy" Jones was philosophical about the loss. "We realize everyone can't be in the winners' bracket. We know from our experience in the past and in the district tournament this year that we can come back. We just have to set our minds to it." Miami's Stan Jakubowski pitched his second complete- game victory in three days and his teammates broke up a no-hitter bid with a five-run seventh inning in the other winners' bracket game. Kakubowski, 16-2. was pressed into service when Hurricane Coach Ron Fraser . was informed that scheduled starter Tom Baxter was hospitalized with tonsillitis. Oklahoma ace Bob Shirley was sailing along with a 1-0 lead and had not allowed a hit until one out in the seventh. Two-run singles by Jim Crosta and Orlando Gonzalez capped the five-run inning. "Stan hung in there when he had to," praised Fraser. "He was especially tough with men on bases. Unfortunately, again we didn't hit well. We've got to be more aggressive." Freshman designated hitter Mickey Reischenbach clubbed a first inning grand slam home run and Texas went on to batter four Seton Hall pitchers for 10 more hits in the Lpnghorns' romp. Sophomore Jim Gideon stopped Seton Hall on one hit in the seven innings he worked and earned his 19th victory of the season,, equalling the one-season NCAA mark set by Larry Gura of Arizona State in 1968. Ron Hodges scattered four hits and Howie Mitchell, the No. 9 batter in the Southern Illinois lineup, drove in three runs as the Salukis handed Seton Hall its other defeat. Seton Hall bowed out of the eight-team tournament with a season's mark of 33-10 and managed only six hits in two games. NOTICE To all owners, renters and agents of the owners.
