SPORTS Siemer One-Hitter Lets Stars Breeze. 4-2 By Dennis O'Grady (Sports Editor) CARROLLTON, MO. Eric Siemer hurled a one-hitter and struck out 11 as Carroll downed Twin City, the Missouri state champions, here Monday afternoon in the first round of the Senior Little League divisional baseball tournament. Carroll played Northwest Milwaukee, Wis., in a winners bracket game at 3:30 p.m. John Resigns ISU Post AMES, Iowa (AP)—Maury John, coach of the Iowa State University basketball team, resigned Tuesday. The veteran coach missed most of the 1973-74 season while undergoing treatment for cancer of the esophagus. He will continue on the Iowa State Staff, Lou McCullough, director of athletics, said. "It is with deep regret that we accept Maury John's resignation as basketball coach at Iowa State," McCullough said. "But it is most important to Coach John to devote his full time and energies in the area of medical rehabilitation." McCullough said John will remain in the athletic department in a fund raising and public relations capacity. "My health has dictated my resignation," John said in his letter of resignation. "I have always expected my players to give 100 per cent and have expected the same for myself. My illness prevents that 100 per cent effort so I have decided to step aside." John has been absent from the Cyclone helm since mid-December when doctors discovered the tumor. He has been undergoing chemotherapy at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. He has been directing summer basketball camps at ISU. John, 54, was named 1969 National Basketball Writers coach of the year when he took the Drake Bulldogs to third place in the National Collegiate Association finals. He was a four-time winner of Coach of the Year honors in the Missouri Valley Conference, where he won or tied for four championships before coming to Iowa State in today (Tuesday). Northwest Milwaukee defeated Ellsworth Air Force Base of South Dakota, 4-0, in the other first round game Monday. The winner of the South Dakota-Missouri game .was scheduled to play the loser of the Carroll-Milwaukee game at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. The lefthanded Siemer was in control all the way Monday as he gave up his only hit in the sixth inning. Catcher John Ramey beat out a bunt along 1971. He took three of his Drake teams into the national collegiate playoff series. John's career started at Moberly, Mo., Junior College where he had a 285-58 record. He won two national championships and eight Missouri state titles at Moberly. At Drake and Iowa State, he ran his career total to 539 wins against 224 losses, going 211-131 with the Bulldogs and 43-35 with the Cyclones. The Iowa State Athletic Council immediately formed a screening committee to receive applications for the head basketball coaching position. Brock Steals 65th Base By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer The energy crisis hasn't bothered Lou Brock. He never runs out of gas, it seems. Brock continued his explosive base-stealing pace Monday while helping the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 11-2. "Winning games is important, not setting records," Brock noted after stealing his 65th base of the season and 700th of his career. "But when the competition is tight and the challenge is there, then you find yourself doing things you didn't think were possible." Brock, zeroing in on Maury Wills' fabulous single-season record of 104, also moved up on the all-time list into some exclusive company. Only four other players in baseball history have stolen 700 or more bases— Ty Cobb (892); Eddie Collins (743); Max the third base line to spoil his no-hit bid. The Carroll All-Stars jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning off Twin City hurler Kevin Engler as shortstop Todd Pettitt walked and Brad Edwards and Siemer singled to load the bases. Carroll's Stars got their first run as Pettitt scored from third when Ramey attempted to pick him off at the base. The Missouri catcher was charged with an error on the throw to third as Pettitt squeezed in for the score. Edwards was then cut down at the plate on a ground ball to make it two out. Carroll scored its second run as Siemer came home from third on a wild pitch. Carroll, representing the State of Iowa in the tournament, made it 4-0 in the fifth as Tom Reiman led off with a walk and Pettitt singled to put runners at first and second. A balk charged Times Herald, Carroll, la. jr Tuesday, July 30, 1974 3 against Engler moved the runners to second and third. Edwards then singled to left field to score Reiman. After Siemer struck out, Dan Wittrock, Carroll catcher, grounded out to score Pettitt from third to make it 4-0. Twin City got its two runs in the seventh as Engler and Steve Moss led off the inning with walks after Dennis Hall had flied out to center. Engler then scored as an error was charged to Carroll second baseman Tom Reiman. The second run came home on a sacrifice fly by Patrick Bone.

Yankees Lose In Fenway Park By FRED ROTHENBERG By The Associated Press They used to ban books in Boston. Now they ban Yankee victories. The New Yorkers' futility streak in Fenway Park was made one loss more futile Monday night when the Red Sox clipped them 2-1 in 11 innings. That makes 11 straight losses in Boston, and 20 in their last 21 games there. They last won there last year. If the Yankees are starting to believe in hexes, they got some more evidence Monday night. The Red Sox managed only three hits and won the game in the llth without a hit. Elsewhere in the American League, the Baltimore Orioles trimmed the Milwaukee Brewers 6-2; the Detroit Tigers clubbed the Cleveland Indians 8-2; the Texas Rangers punished the Kansas Ci.ty Royals 10-1, and the Oakland A's outscored the Chicago White Sox 11-9. Lefty Sam McDowell held the Red Sox hitless through five innings and scoreless through 7 2-3 innings, until Dwight Evans slugged a tying homer high into the left-field screen. The score stayed 1-1 until the llth, when a walk, wild throw by New York reliever Sparky Lyle on a sacrifice bunt and another walk loaded the bases and a sacrifice fly by Terry Hughes brought in the winning run. Tigers 8, Indians 2 Four Detroit batters sent first-inning homers into the stands, causing any late arrivals to miss a major league record. Never before had a team hit four homers in the first inning, although four teams have hit five home runs in a single inning. Al Kaline, Bill Freehan and Mickey Stanley belted consecutive homers off Fritz Peterson, and two batters later, Ed Brinkman connected off Steve Kline. The barrage was more than enough for Mickey Lolich, who scattered six hits. Rangers 10, Royals 1 Carey (738) Wagner (701). and Honus In the other National League games, the New York Mets nipped the Montreal Expos 4-3; the Los Angeles Dodgers hammered the Atlanta Braves 10-2; the Philadelphia Phillies routed the Pittsburgh Pirates 13-1; the San Diego Padres stopped the Cincinnati Reds 3-2 and the San Francisco Giants trimmed the Houston Astros 7-2. Brock also singled twice and scored twice while both Ken Reitz and Joe Torre homered for the Cards. spurgeons underline your back-to-school wardrobe with LOVABLE SEAM-FREE SMO-O-OTHER!

Choose It and Charge It at Spurgeon's Ferguson Jenkins pitched the top of the fifth inning as if his 8-1 lead was in jeopardy. And it was. His Ranger teammates had made it 8-1 before rain delayed the game for one hour and 36 minutes—three outs short of an official Texas victory. When the rains stopped, Jenkins started fast, striking out three straight Royals on 12 total pitches. With the game official, he then breezed to his 14th victory in 23 decisions. He allowed six hits. Orioles 6, Brewers 2 Paul Blair and Don Baylor drilled run-scoring hits to spark a four-run Baltimore rally that gave Ross Grimsley his seventh victory in his last eight decisions. A's 11, White Sox 9 Oakland overcame four of its own errors in one inning and two Chicago leads to beat the White Sox. Down 4-1 after three innings and 5-4 after six, the A's bounced back with four runs in the seventh and three more in the eighth.

American Baseball— There were no pregame speeches or plaques. John Wockenfuss of the Evansville Triplets made it his night before the home crowd with two swings at the bat.

NFL Strike— The National Football League players' strike entered a critical stage today with the resumption of talks and rank-and-file criticism of the players association's negotiating tactics.
