SPORTS COUNCIL BLUFFS Abraham Lincoln of Council Bluffs belted Kuemper, 13-0, in five innings here Thursday night in the opening round of the Lewis Central Baseball Tournament. The Lynx, 8-3 in summer play now and 8-4 in spring ball, never were in trouble as the Knights got only one hit off of Dan McSorley. Kuemper is now in the losers bracket and they were scheduled to play the loser of the St. Albert-Woodbine game at 6 p.m. today at St. Albert. McSorley struck out seven as Kuemper's only hit was a single by Tom Nurse in the fourth inning. In fact. Nurse was the Knights' only baserunner. AL took a 3-0 lead in the second, added four more in the third and wrapped it up with six in the fourth as they pounded out 10 hits off Nurse who went four-and-two-thirds innings. Alan Kohorst finished up. Jim Neely led off the Lynx second with a double and scored on the first of three hits by Randy Hamilton to make it 1-0. Then third baseman John Schreiber doubled to make it Abe Lincoln Flag Blasters Gain Ground in Munv The Flag Blasters gained ground on the Short Tees in the Men's Golf League at the municipal course Thursday night, but still trail by 10 shots. The Flag Blasters fired a 171 for low team score in their division, the American, but the Short Tees didn't lose much ground as they carded a 174. In the National League, the Rinky Links continue to lead by a big margin after firing a 172 team score. They lead the second-place Caddie Cleaners by 17 strokes. The Hi-Drivers, who are in third at 1450, some 22 shots off the lead, had the low team score in either league with a 167. Low scratch honors in the American went to Larry Clark with a 34, while Francis Zimmerman took low net honors with a 31. Jim Wilson's 34 was good for 2-0 and he later scored on a wild throw. With one out in Abraham Lincoln's third, Dave Kruse walked and Paul Crane singled. After Kruse was forced out, Hamilton lined a single to make it 4-0. Schreiber walked to load the bases, then rightfielder Ed Carpenter doubled to score two more runs. The final run in the inning scored on an error, one of five committed by Lou Galetich's club. Three singles, McSorley's two-run double and two more errors gave AL its six runs in low scratch in the National League, while Don Peters and Arlo Buck tied for low net with 31s.

Then Mike Schmidt shook up Jerry Koosman. Picking on a Koosman curve ball, the Philadelphia slugger belted a ball to the base of the center field wall before Dave Schneck hauled it in. That out preserved a 2-1 victory for the New York Mets Thursday night but left Koosman shaking his head. "It was a tough, exciting game and I should have made better pitches," said Koosman after giving up 11 hits to the National League East leaders. "There were pitches they should have hit and didn't. It was a struggle." Koosman was in trouble down to the end. when tne Phillies had a man on first and second base with two out and the dangerous Schmidt at the plate. With the count three balls and one strike. New York catcher Grote called for a fastball and then a curve, but Koosman decided against both. "If Schmidt is going to beat me. it's going to be with an offspeed pitch.'' said Koosman. The left-hander offered a "knee-high curvebaH away" and Schmidt belted it about as far as you can inside spacious Veterans Stadium. In the only other National League game Thursday, the Chicago Cubs beat the Pitts- burgh Pirates 3-0. In the American League, the Minnesota Twins trimmed the Chicago White Sox 3-2; the Milwaukee Brewers blanked the Baltimore Orioles 6-0; the Texas Rangers turned back the California Angels 7-4 and the Oakland A's defeated the Kansas City Royals 4-0.

(AP) — The financially troubled Memphis Tarns belong to the American Basketball Association again. The league bought the club from Charles 0. Finley Thursday, and reacted mildly to the rival National Basketball Association's seeming disinterest in league merger. ABA Commissioner Mike Storen said after the league trustees' closed-door meeting that he regretted Finley had decided to leave professional basketball. The league had controlled the Tarns' operations briefly before Finley purchased the club two years ago. Finley said he was unable to continue operating the team because of health reasons. He said, however, that he would continue to direct baseball's Oakland A's, two-time World Series champions. He sold his professional hockey team, the California Seals, after suffering a heart attack in August 1973. Storen, reacting to comments in New York Thursday by NBA Commissioner Walter Kennedy that merger of the two leagues appeared unlikely in view of opposition by the NBA Players' Association, said if the older league doesn't want to merge, "that's an alternative they may choose to take," Storen said the league-owned Virginia Squires franchise has not been sold yet.
