SPORTS ———— Rick-Rico Combo Powers Red Sox Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, June 24, 1974 By The Associated Press It's getting to be healthy to be unhealthy in Boston. Rico Petrocelli, hobbled by a pulled hamstring muscle that has knocked him off third base and left him as the Red Sox' designated hitter, belted a pair of solo home runs Sunday. And Rick Wise, recovering from tendonitis and a broken finger, pitched five solid innings in his first start in a month. The Rick-and-Rico combination, plus some other healthy hitting, powered Boston to an 8-0 rout of the Cleveland Indians and enabled the Red Sox to widen their American League East lead to 3'/2 games over the Detroit Tigers. In Sunday's other games. New York beat the Tigers 4-1, Milwaukee walloped Baltimore 9-4, Kansas City defeated Oakland 4-1, California crushed Texas 10-2 and in a doubleheader, Chicago edged Minnesota 2-1 before the Twins tripped the White Sox 4-3. Yanks 4, Tigers 1 Newly acquired Rudy May pitched a four-hitter and Bobbv Murcer doubled home the tie-breaking run during a sixth-inning downpour in the Yankees' victory. Play began in a steady rain which got- harder during the middle innings and never stopped, forcing postponement of the second game of the scheduled twinbill. Brewers 9, Orioles 4 "It wasn't that much of a day," Darrell Porter shrugged. "Heck, I must've left 10 guys on base." Actually, Porter stranded seven runners—but he un- stranded three others with one swing. He belted a first-inning grand-slam off southpaw Dave McNally that started the Brewers on their way over Baltimore. Royals 4, A's 1 Lindy McDaniel, making a rare start, retired the first 12 Oakland batters he faced and wound up with a three-hit triumph over the A's. Angels 10, Rangers 2 Frank Robinson and Lee Stanton made it easy for California's Andy Hassler to gain his first major league victory. They hit two-run homers in the first inning and drove in three runs apiece in the stampede against Texas. White Sox 2-3, Twins 1-4 Stan Bahnsen pitched a four-hitter while Carlos May singled home one run and scored the other on a wild pitch in Chicago's first-game victory. In the nightcap, the Twins' Danny Thompson tripled in the seventh and scored on Steve Brye's tie-breaking single. Tony Perez was standing at home plate, waiting to lead off the 12th inning for the Cincinnati Reds. It was the second game of Sunday's long doubleheader against Atlanta and Braves' catcher Johnny Oates was wrestling with reliever Joe Niekro's knuckleball. Perez laughed. "You're having trouble catching it," he said, "and I'm supposed to hit it?" Then the Reds' slugger did exactly that, sending a Niekro butterfly fluttering into the center field seats for a 2-1 Cincinnati victory and a sweep of the doubleheader. In the opener, Roger Nelson won his first game since May 26, 4-2, with Joe Morgan contributing three hits, including a two-run homer. The sweep returned the Reds to second place in the National League's West Division 6'/2 games behind Los Angeles. It also cooled off the Braves, who dropped three straight against the Reds after winning eight of nine. Elsewhere in the National League Sunday, Montreal trimmed St. Louis 4-2, Chicago rapped Pittsburgh 7-3, Houston took San Diego 8-2 and Los Angeles topped San Francisco 4-3. New York's game at Philadelphia was rained out. , Cubs 7, Pirates 3 Bill Madlock's tie-breaking single keyed a four-run eighth inning that gave the Cubs their victory over the Pirates Astros 8, Padres 2 Home runs by Cesar Cedeno and Bob Watson and pitcher Claude Osteen's two-nun double led Houston Astros' to an 8-2 rout of the San Diego Padres. Expos 4, Cards 2 Ninth-inning singles by Tim Foli and Ken Singleton drove in the tie-breaking runs and moved Montreal past St. Louis. Dodgers 4, Giants 3 The Dodgers battled from behind to defeat the Giants with Manny Mota's bunt single tying the score in the seventh inning and Ken McMullen's pinch single winning the game in the ninth. Lynx Pound Kuemper, 9-1 COUNCIL BLUFFS Abraham Lincoln of Council Bluffs hammered Kuemper for the second time in three days here Saturday afternoon, 9-1, eliminating the Knights from the Lewis Central Baseball Tournament. On Thursday night, the Lynx pounded out a 13-0, five inning victory over Lou Galetich's club. Abe Lincoln didn't waste any time Saturday as they jumped on Kuemper righthander Mike Gute for three runs in the top of the first. Don Barber led off with a single and stole second. After Dave Kruse walked, Paul Crane got the first of his three hits by doubling to make it 1-0. Then first baseman Jim Neely singled to right for two more runs. Gute, who gave up 11 hits in his seven inning stint, didn't allow an earned run the rest of the way, but didn't receive any support as Kuemper made eight errors that led the way for six more runs. In the tournament, Kuemper committed 19 errors in the three games they played. Abe Lincoln made it 5-0 after three as Crane reached base on an error and stole second. After Neely walked, Randy Hamilton singled for the first run. After Gute struck out Benda First Professional in 11 Years to Win Iowa Masters AMES, Iowa (AP)—John Benda, the 26-year-old pro from Humboldt, posted a tournament-tieing record 68 to capture the rain-shortened 1974 Iowa Masters golf title Sunday. The tournament that went 36 holes saw Benda best runnerup Don Bergman of Cedar Rapids by four strokes. Bergman, also a pro, carded a 71-71—142. Mark Rohde of Marshalltqwn was low .amateur by firing a 73-71 for a two-day total of 144. He was one stroke behind third-place pro Chris Larsen of Iowa City who shot a 72-71-143. Benda, reigning Iowa Open champion and low professional here last year, helped the pros save face after 10 straight years of amateur victories with his 138 total over the par 36-35—71 Veekner course layout. The last professional to win was Duff Lawrence, formerly of Waterloo but then playing out of Los Angeles, Calif., whc took the 1963 championship. John Liechty of Marshalltown, winner of the past two Iowa Masters tournaments, failed to place among the leaders. Liechty, who carded a 7474—148, had the chance to become the first to win three consecutive titles. Rounding out the top finishers in the Masters flight were Jack Mully of State Center (73-72-145), Jim Curell of Boone (72-73-145), Doug Miller of Ames (72-73-145) and Dave Baker of Dension (73-72-145). Flight winners included Bill Hall of Monticello (72-150), Bill Benda of Humboldt (74-154), Don Brown of Des Moines (83-158). Chris Meyers of Ames, Tom Szarny of Brooklyn and John Whitaker of Des Moines tied for first place in the fourth flight shooting 87-89-87—167 respectively. Sunday's rounds had 50 low amateurs and all the professionals in the Master's flight with the rest of the field dropping into lower flights. Scrambling Colbert Takes Golf Classic AKRON, Ohio (AP) — "One thing was on my mind," Jim Colbert said. "I wanted it all. "I didn't care if I was second or 95th. I wanted it all and I was willing to take some chances to get it." The chipper, gutsy little guy got it all—the title and a $34,000 first place check—on the second hole of a four-man sudden-death,olavoff in the $170,000 American Golf Classic. He got it with a routine par five after Ray Floyd's bold bid for a birdie turned into a bogey instead. "I was playing for birdie," Floyd said of the wind-blown third shot that caught the bank of a pond guarding the green and set up the bogey that let Colbert get away with the fourth title of his career Sunday. "I'm excited," Colbert said. "I'm real excited. I've won before, but this is my first on national television. It's my first on a really great golf course. It's just great. Everything is great." Colbert, 33, had to make a scrambling par on the last hole of regulation play, chipping over a bunker to within about 18 inches of the hole, to tie Floyd, a bitterly disappointed Forrest Fezler and veteran Gay Brewer for the top spot at 281. That's one-over-par on the unyielding, 7,180-yard Firestone Country Club course, a monster of a layout turned even longer and tougher by gusty, blustery winds, chill temperatures and rough still wet and heavy from heavy rains. It was the first time since the Colonial Invitational of 1971 that a regular tour event—not including the U.S. Open —had been won at plus-par figures. And the four-man playoff was the largest since the Kemper Open of 1971, Fezler and Brewer dropped * out with bogeys on the first extra hole, Brewer three-putting and Fezler failing from a bunker. The victory lifted Colbert's season's earnings to $73,000. Each of the playoff losers received $13,147.

Then Gute walked Russ Webster to force in another run. The Council Bluffs school upped their lead to 8-0 after four as three hits and two errors led to three runs. Kuemper's only run came in the bottom of the fifth as Phil Baldus walked with one out. Then Tom Nurse reached base as a throw to first base got by Neely, allowing Baldus to score. Kuemper, now 3-5, will try to run their Midwest Conference record to 3-1 tonight when they host Lake City at 8 p.m. in Carroll Stadium.
