SPORTS Kuemper Raps Denison Kuemper rode a 14-hit attack to a 15-4 win Wednesday night over Denison in Carroll Stadium. Of the 14 hits, seven went for extra bases. Knight pitcher Tom Nurse allowed four hits, while striking out eight batters. The win evened the Kuemper record at 5-5 as the Knights make ready to tackle Jefferson at Jefferson Friday night. Nurse blasted a double on each of his three official at-bats. In spite of a sore thumb, Mike Gute managed a pair of doubles and a single. Nurse and Gute each also drew a walk. Rollie Wiebers started the game for Denison, but was relieved on the mound in the first inning after giving up five runs. An error on the Knights got the game started. The error let Pat Sullivan reach second base as Denison's lead-off batter. Doug Wiebers followed with a single and Rollie Wiebers came in with a double to score a pair of runs. Trailing 2-0, the Knights took their first turn at the plate. Like Denison, Kuemper's lead-off man reached first on an error. A hit batsman placed runners on first and second. Three straight doubles, by Gute, Nurse and Joe Roetker, gave Kuemper a 4-2 lead. A single by Larry McClellan drove home Roetker and after the first inning, the hosts had a 5-2 lead. The visitors turned a walk and a triple into a run in the fourth and added another run that inning on a wild pitch. Kuemper upped their 5-4 lead to 7-4 in their half of the fourth on a single by Gute and doubles by Nurse and John Heithoff. Both RBIs were credited to Heithoff. The Knights added a run in the fifth when Tim Roetker scored as Kuemper's Phil Baldus was involved in a rundown, forgetting about Roetker on base. The Knights went to town in the sixth, scoring the game — ending seven runs on six hits. Russ Rupiper picked up three runs batted in on a hard-hit single and Jeff Hunter and Heithoff h#d one RBI each. Baldus ended the game with a single that scored Rupiper. The Kuemper junior varsity also won Wednesday night. The final in the preliminary game was 6-5. Doubles by Brian Tigges and Terry Hammen helped raise the Kuemper JV record to 3-2. • Box Score: Denison AB R H BI Sullivan, SS 0 1 0 0 D.

(AP) — Did you know that "Ms." is now in Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary? "Used instead of Miss or Mrs. (as when the marital status of a woman is unknown)" is how the Collegiate treats "Ms." The acceptable pronunciation is listed as "miz." "Icekhana," "warning track" and "Juke" are new dictionary entries from what field? If you said "sports," go to the head of the class. "Icekhana" is from auto racing; "warningtrack" from baseball; and "Juke" from football. They're among hundreds of new sports words now in the dictionary. Little Guy Throws Tough for Cincinnati as Reds Erupt in 9th By The Associated Press Good things come in small packages. But not for the Houston Astros. Freddy Norman saw to that. Norman is the little guy of the Cincinnati Reds' pitching staff, who has been standing tall against National League batters all year. "I do like pressure," said the 5-foot-8 Norman. "I've had pressure all my life because of being small. Coaches always told me I had to go twice as hard because of my size." The Reds took some of the pressure off Norman's diminutive shoulders Wednesday night by erupting for a six-run ninth inning to whip the Astros 9-1. Elsewhere in the NL, the Los Angeles Dodgers nipped the Atlanta Braves 5-4; the New York Mets edged the Chicago Cubs 5-4 in 12 innings; the Montreal Expos blanked the Philadelphia Phillies 2-0; the Pittsburgh Pirates pounded the St. Louis Cardinals 7-2, and the San Diego Padres dropped the San Francisco Giants 4-0. The smaller the lead, the better Norman thinks he pitches. It was a pressure-packed game until the Reds' big bats roughed up two Houston pitchers in the ninth. Dave Conception's first homer since May 12 snapped a 1-1 deadlock in the seventh inning. An inning later, Dan Driessen belted his second homer of the season for a 3-1 lead. Norman, who struck out six and walked one, raised his record to 8-5 and lowered his earned run average to 2.18. Pirates 7, Cardinals 2 Jim Rooker got some runs so Jim Rooker did what Jim Rooker thinks he can do—win ballgames. "I've had 14 starts and I really think I could easily have 10 wins," said Rooker, 4-6, who threw a three-hitter past the Cardinals. "I don't think it's my luck, I think it's the club's luck. Mets 5, Cubs 4,12 innings The last time Jack Aker was a winning pitcher—last July 4 against the Philadelphia Phillies—he was wearing a Cubs uniform. This time the losers were Cubs. C 1 e o n Jones' 12th-inning single drove in pinch-runner John Milner, giving the Mets a sweep of their three-game set with Chicago. Padres 4, Giants 0 Fred Kendall's three-run triple and Bill Greif's six-hitter sent the Giants down to their sixth straight defeat. By The Associated Press Dave Hamilton is finding his touch, but he's still suspicious about it. Bill Lee is losing his, but isn't worried. Hamilton has been assured by Oakland Manager Alvin Dark that he's part of the A's starting rotation. If Dark needed any assurance that Hamilton belongs in it, he got it Wednesday, when the left-hander two-hit the California Angels 5-0. Lee, the southpaw ace of Boston's staff, was pounded for 11 hits by Milwaukee, but he didn't seem too concerned, and neither did Manager Darrell Johnson after the Brewers' 7-1 rout of the Red Sox. In Wednesday's other American League games, Kansas City edged Chicago 2-1 in 12 innings, Baltimore nipped Detroit 5-4, Cleveland beat New York 3-2 and Minnesota mauled Texas 9-4. Hamilton, with the first shutout of his major league career, raised his record to 5-1. Brewers 7, Red Sox 1 "He threw all right, but he made some bad pitches," Johnson said of Lee. "He's been making some mistakes lately and also has been bothered by a blister, but he'll be all right. . . ." And Lee said with a shrug: "I had good stuff, but it just wasn't in the cards for me to win. I didn't have that fine control." Ed Srague had it. He checked Boston on four hits, including Carlton Fisk's double and Rico Petrocelli's single in the fifth. Royals 2, White Sox 1 Paul Splittorff went all 12 innings against Chicago, giving up just six hits. Orioles 5, Tigers 4 Ross Grimsley pitched a fivehitter for Baltimore—not exactly the kind to write home about, though. Two of the Tigers' hits were homers by Mickey Stanley and Ed Brinkman. Fortunately for the Orioles, Paul Blair, Don Baylor and Jim Fuller belted homers, too. But it took Andy Etchebarren's tie-breaking single in the ninth inning to beat Detroit. Indians 3, Yankees 2 Right-hander Steve Arlin, acquired from San Diego about two weeks ago, blanked the Yankees until the sixth, when consecutive singles by Gene Michael, Elliott Maddox and Chris Chambliss chased him. Twins 9, Rangers 4 Tony Oliva drove in four runs, three of them with a homer that highlighted the Twins' 14-hit attack. MARATHON MATCH . WIMBLEDON, England — Chris Evert of the United States, seeded second in her debut at Wimbledon, battled Australian Lesley Hunt for 44 games to no decision, their third set tied at 9-9 when play was halted because of darkness. American Stan Smith defeated Bob Maud of South Africa 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 in the second round of men's singles competition.
