Custer Park as lliey made their 1973 debut in "'C e «j t r a 1 Illinois Collegiate '"League play. A malfunction of the public address system foiled the ""scheduled pre-game ceremonies 1!>ut the real spoiler for Coach 'Jim Isaacson and his charges '"•"was the 12 -inning 5-3 loss to Macomb. ' " Plans are to reschedule the pre-game ceremonies for next -^Monday night when the Pioneers are host to Bloomington at H. T. Custer. However, there is no way to replay the game that was lost. Despite P.A. problems and the lack of communleaitiort with the fans, an Adm&rail air conditioner wag given away. win* ner was Robert Jones of Knox- viillc. Galesburg trailed 3-1 going into the ninth inning of last night's ball game but came up with a pair of runs. The tying run scored when Dan Ness came all the way from second on a passed ball. However, tiie comeback went lor naught when the Macs scored two runs in the 12th after two men were out. "We just weren't anywhere near aggressive enough at the plate," a disappointed Isaacson said alter the game. "1 was pleased with our pitching and our defense was excellent, but we have to get more aggressive with the Bats." The Pioneers did not get a hit off starter Rod Volk, who was token out after five Innings with a 3-0 lead. "He (Volk) hadiVjt pitched for a couple of weeks and I didn't plan to leave him in any longer than that," Coach Chuck Lindstrom explained. The first hit by Galesburg was a homer by Bill Westlall off reliever Chris Weberlee in the sixth Inning. Macomb jumped out In front in the first inning when Gary Grybash led off witit a base on balls and scored ahead of a home run by Steve Stumpf. In the fifth inning Macomb added to its lead when Jon Sir* on's sacrifice fly scored Bill Babcock, who had reached base on a single and moved around to third when pitcher Paul Kreke walked a couple. After breaking the ice with Wesbfall's stotitainninig homer, the Pioneers toiled by two nuns until the ninth, After Gary Bradley singled, Hoscheldt fanned but Ness sin* gled. The run scored when the left fielder let the ball get by (for an error and Ness went to second. The Gakaburg second baseman then scored when the Macomb catcher ma unable to locate the ball. Neither team could score after that until the Macs came to bait in the top of the 12th. The first two men were easy outs in the 12th, but that's when Barry Koeneke, who Was tagged with the loss, got into trouble. Grybash walked and advanced to second when Koeneke was charged with a throwing error At second base on A ptcloaff play at first. Stumpf was then walked intentionally but Mike Pefctenuzzo got an Infield hit do load the bases. it was at that point (hat Babcock's hit drove in two runs and gave the Macs a 3*3 tool The Pioneers got two men on in their half of 12th but were unable to score.

Tuesday night Minnesota scored five runs in the second and added two more while ace pitcher Dave Wiffield was fanning 15 Southern Cal batters. Then came the bottom of the ninth, when the Trojans, trailing 7-0, staged one of the greatest comebacks in series history. Before the inning was over the defending champions had managed eight singles and sent eight runs across the plate to eliminate the Big Ten champion from the competition. Coming off victories in the first three games of the season over the weekend, the Galesburg American Legion has five straight playing dates this week. Last Saturday night the -Legion kicked off the 1973 season with a 13-6 victory over Cedar Rapids at H. T. Custer Park. The Legionnaires then dropped the same team 8-5 and 14-9 in a doubleheader Sunday afternoon. The Legion's heavy schedule this week begins tonight with a home doubleheader against Limestone. Game time is 6:30. Thursday night the Legionnaires are away at Lincoln, but they return home Friday night to host Camp Point in a single contest. Doubleheaders at Moline are scheduled for both Saturday and Sunday. The season's first games gave a hint of what the Legion team may be this year. Displaying strong hitting, the Legionnaires smashed 10 home runs, including a grand slam homer, in the three games. There were some pitching problems that put the team behind several times, though. But coach Fred Stevens reports that pitching as well as general items were on the past two days' practice schedule. "We'll be in there giving them a go," says Stevens. Danny Jacobs (1-0) will start the first game for Galesburg. In the nightcap, Mike Thompson will get the nod. A couple of changes have been made in the roster. Rick Wilder is moving to second base' from left field, while Tony Nelson switches from right to left field. Utility man Jerry Blixt will take over the right field position. Pitcher Kirk King is on the injured list with a sore elbow. X-rays have been taken, but the results are not known yet.

Miis '.opbiio is I'll- cnly woman By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Editor OAK MONT, Pa. (UPI) Dave Hill is gone, but that's okay, they're going right ahead with the 73rd U.S. Open Thursday anyway—Jack Nicklaus is still here. You've heard of guys who march to different drummers, haven't you? Sure you have. But how about some skinny dude who only listens to his own kazoo? Such an individual is intense, completely unpredictable Dave Hill, who may be headstrong at times, but certainly never dull. He was sitting there on a wooden bench in the ancient 70- year-old Oakmont Country Club locker room packing up his months, hitting 600-700 balls some days, simply to get ready for this, and now I don't sec any sense at all in staying here." "Something did it, didn't it?" "Yeah, something did it. Four holes did it. That was how many I played before I quit." "You still haven't said why though?" "Well 1 could see where I conceivably make two good shots at the first hole and easily make six." "Any chance you'll change your mind? This thing doesn't get under way until Thursday." Dave Hill looked as if he had been wounded. Mortally. "No," he said, "I'm not changing my mind. I've got a belongings Tuesday, quiet and 7:45 flight in the morning." compesed and not blowing his "You've withdrawn from top at all, when someone came tournaments before, haven't in, sidled up alongside him, and you?" said: | "I have withdrawn many "Is it true you've pulled j times before I even put the peg out?" | in the ground.

"My second. 1 played here in and lliree-pullcd six-seven '.'OU might pull out before you came here today?" "I had an idea, but I'm not mad at nobody. It's just that I've been making too many mental errors lately, so whats the use I wouldn't play In this tournament if they gave me a free throw a hole. Like I said, no law says I can't quit. 1 got $34,000 in the bank. I don't have lo play for $500. Who am 1 gonna beat?" For all the talk, Dave Hill still had to make it official. lie still had to find a USflA man and tell him he was all finished, not going to tee it up at all on Thursday. On the way out of the locker room, Hill ran into P. J. Boatwright, the executive director of the USGA. He told Boatwright he was withdrawing, and the USGA boss, who knows Dave Hill, didn't even blink an eye. It was Hill, you may remember, who had some choice things to say about the Hazeltinc course in Chaska, Minn., where they played the 1970 Open and feeling good, he tips more than that. He has drawn other fines, too, but they never have prevented him from, saying what was on his mind. Not for long anyway. So Dave Hill is on his way home lo Kvergrecn, Colo., and Jack Nicklaus is going to hang around. He remembers this place from 1962 also. That was the year he won his first Open here. Nicklaus respects Oakmont, but doesn't let It bug him. "This golf course," he says, "the more you wanna bite off, the narrower it gets." But you take Dave Hill now, he doesn't even want a little nibble. He put that $35,000 first prize and accompanying prestige for winning completely out of his mind. He said he'd rather go home and relax. And would you believe it, some people still Dave Hill Total 32 3 5 2| Total 20 0 3 0 Score by innings: Chicago 000 003 000—3 Houston 000 000 000—0 E—Watson.
