Wise Has No-Hitter Foiled By Btf& MADDEN UPI dpbrts Writer Rick Wise, traded to St. Louis in February of 1972 for Steve Carlton (Who became a 27- game winner with last place Phillies), came within two outs of pitching the second no-hitter of his career against the Cincinnati Reds Wednesday night and, if nothing else, he'd like some respect—just like Rodney Dangerfield. "I hope things like this will warrant some merit for me on what I'm doing now..." said Wise who upped his record to 8* 3 with the 8-0 victory. The fact that the Reds' Joe Morgan spoiled his bid with a one-out ninth inning single didn't seem to matter. Wise, who retired 14 consecutive batters in one stretch, got all the hitting support he needed in the third when the Cards scored seven runs, climaxed by Luis Melendez' grand slam home run. In other games, Philadelphia bombed Los Angeles, 16-3, Atlanta crushed Pittsburgh 183, the New York Mcts edged San Francisco, 3-1, Montreal nipped San Diego, 3-2, and Houston breezed past the Chicago Cubs, 6-1. In the American League, the New York Yankees moved back into first place in the East by clubbing Oakland, 8-3, Kansas Register-Mail SPORTS Galesburg, 111., Thursday, June 14, 197.1 Page 29 City blanked Baltimore, 2-0, Milwaukee trimmed Minnesota, 4-3, California topped Boston, 75, Chicago trounced Detroit, 102, and Texas tripped Cleveland, 4-2. Del Unscr, one of the few displaced American Leaguers to make good in the National League, continued his hot hitting with two hits and four RBIs as the Phillies spoiled the Dodgers' chances of gaining first place in the NL West. Unser was joined on the offense by Willie Montanez' 3-for-3 with two RBIs and Mike Anderson's two-run homer in the first as Ken Brett coasted to his fifth win in seven decisions. Atlanta had a hitting field day against the Pirates as IDarrell Evans continued his hot bat streak with a pair of hits including a grand slam home run in the fourth inning. Evans, in 17 consecutive at bats, collected 11 walks, two homers and four singles. Felix Millan slugged his first home run of the year in addition to a double and a single as the Mets provided Tom Seaver with his eighth victory against four losses. Millan, now the leading; Mets' batter at .287, belted his homer* off loser Tom Bradley in the first. Mike Jorgensen's thfee-ruft homer in the first totting provided the margin of victory for Montreal left-hander Balor Moore, who needed three innings of relief help from Mike Marshall and Cesar Cedeno slugged a two-run homer to highlight Houston's victory over Chicago. Don Wilson (5-6) picked up the win for the" Astros with two innings of relief help from Jim Ray. Brewers Show Much Progress By FRED McMANE UPI Sports Writer Del Crandall, a former catcher for the Milwaukee Braves' championship teams during the late 1950s and now the manager of the Milwaukee Brewers, is ecstatic over his team's tremendous improvement this season and believes the club can be a contender in the American League East. So far, it's hard to argue the point. The Brewers came from behind on a two-run homer by John Briggs in the eighth inning Wednesday night to defeat the Minnesota Twins, 43, for their sixth consecutive triumph. The victory left the Brewers tied with Detroit for second place in the American League East, only a half-game behind the New York Yankees. "I'm excited about this club," said Crandall. "I really am. A team can't play any better than we are now. I left spring training feeling optimistic but really didn't envision a streak like this...." The Yankees took over first place in the topsy-turvy East by whipping Oakland, 8-3. In other AL games, Chicago pounded Detroit, 10-2, Kansas City blanked Baltimore, 2-0, California beat Boston, 7-5, and Texas edged Cleveland, 4-2. Atlanta routed Pittsburgh, 183, Philadelphia clobbered Los Angeles, 16-3, St. Louis blanked Cincinnati, 8-0, Houston defeated Chicago, 6-1, Montreal edged San Diego, 3-2, and New York beat San Francisco, 3-1, in National League games. The Yankees collected 18 hits, including three each by Horace Clarke, Bobby Murcer and Thurman Munson, to wallop the A's. Ken Holtzman, an 11-game winner, was touched for 11 singles in four innings while suffering his worst beating of the year. Fritz Peterson went seven innings to even his record at 6-6. The White Sox unloaded homers by John Jeter, Carlos May, Bill Melton and Rick Reichardt to whip the Tigers. Stan Bahnsen went the distance for Chicago to register his seventh win in 12 decisions while Mickey Lolich was tagged with his sixth loss against six victories. Dick Drago scattered eight hits as the Royals blanked the Orioles. Lou Piniella doubled home both runs with two outs in the eighth for Kansas City, which dealt Baltimore its ninth shutout of the season. Frank Robinson doubled home two runs during a four- run second inning to pace the Angels over the Red Sox.

Frank Leahy Awards Will Be Presented NHL Board Rules Finley's Franchise Stays in Oakland CHICAGO (UPI) will be presented to four pro alihitetes, two owners, and one will be designated posthumously to the Pittsburgh Pirates' Roberto • Clemente tonight ait the first Frank Leahy Awards banquet. Owners to be honored will be Arthur M. Rooney of the Pittsburgh Steelers, with the Ail- American • award, and Charles 0. Finley of the Oakland Ath letics and Cailifornia Seals, as Owner of the Year.

Leahy will be unable to attend the banquet because of illness. MONTREAL (UPI) - Charles 0.;.Finley;will:keep his National Hockey League franchise in Oakland, the board of governors ru)ed Wednesday night in one — Awards 1 °* the ^al decisions of the three-day NHL meeting. Finley's first proposal Wednesday was to move his club to an undisclosed location, but Finley later requested the motion be withdrawn. NHL President Clarence Campbell said the issue could be brought up again at the league's semiannual meeting in Toronto Aug. 23. For the present, however, Campbell said the franchise will remain in Oakland. In other decisions, the board of governors passed a regulation, which went undecided by the rules committee, concerning the width of goaltenders' pads. The minor penalties which were brought against a net- minder sporting illegal pads in the past have been eliminated ar.d there will be no more measurement of the pads by oificials. Pads Do Not Change Game "The governors felt that this ruling does not accomplish anything," Campbell said. "Wider pads do not change the game in any way." The governors announced also they have abolished," for security purposes, the past practice of players skating around the ice at the end of each period. Campbell also set Jan. 29 in Chicago as the date and location for next year's All-Star game between the East and West divisions. The governors wound up. the three-day annual meeting Wednesday night with discussions on a number of issues including a new tie-breaking procedure to decide which team makes it to the playoffs. Campbell said if two teams have identical records then the scries between the two clubs will be the deciding factor. In the case of an unbalanced schedule, the odd game will have no bearing on the outcome. Most clubs meet each other five times in a season. The league pension plan, new standards for helmets and drug abuse were also discussed by the league leaders. Campbell indicated an audit procedure on all drugs dispersed by club trainers or doctors will be discussed at the next meeting. No Knowledge of Abuse "There is no knowledge of drug abuse in the NHL but there have been instances in other sports where the question has come up," the NHL president said.

Stillwagon, 24, was rumored to be headed for the Green Bay Packers up until a few days ago. Nicklaus Favorite in Open By FRANK BERKOPEC OAKMONT, Pa. (UPI) Jack Nicklaus, already a three- time U.S. Open winner and now only one championship away from golfing Immortality, says he wants "to win as many as I can," and right there you know who is the favorite in this 73rd renewal of America's foremost golf event. Tom Weiskopf arrived here fresh from an impressive pair of back-to-back victories and three wins in his last four tournaments and some thought he might be the favorite, but nobody really knew how hungry Nicklaus was to achieve his 14th major title—more than any other man in golfing history. Nicklaus has taken pains to let people know he wants this one, and because lie has, he, and not Weiskopf, his fellow Ohioan, is going off as the favorite in the 150-man field which began competition today over Oakmont's legendary 6,921- yard, par-71 course dominated •by 187 traps and 18 lightning fast greens. The first threesome went off at 7:30 a.m. EDT. Nicklaus teed off at J0.04 with amateur Marvin Giles a n d former Tuesday softened the greens a bit but a hot sun and a light breeze dried them sufficiently to put them back to their former slick condition. The weatherman says it will be fair and warm today with little chance of any more rain. Lee Trevino, a two-time Open winner, considers Oakmont an "ideal" course for his low ball game. "I'm playing very well here," he says. Tommy Aaron, the Masters champion who is not particularly fond of fast greens, has been hoping for more rain to "make them hold a little better." Others echo his hopes, Arnold Palmer, an old hand at Oakmont, is the sentimental favorite on this course where he became a member only a few days ago. Palmer knows Oakmont better than any pro on the tour. "What does this one mean to me especially?" asked Nicklaus, who won his first U.S. Open on this same course in 1962. "It means a number of things to me. First of all, naturally, I'd like to win my fourth one. I'd also like to come back and win the Open where I Only three other golfers ever have won four Open titles- Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan and Anderson—and now Nicklaus is bidding to join them. Following the first 36 holes Thursday and Friday, the field will be trimmed to the low 60 scorers and ties for the Saturday's and Sunday's final rounds which will be" televised by ABC. Masters champion Bob Goalby won my first one . .. And of as his partners. course 1 want to'win as many The rain that hit the course as 1 can." ^^UHKr FORWARD LOOK by Roffler MAKES LONG HAIR LOOK GREAT!

Hartland Molson, a former owner of the Montreal Canadiens, and former referee Frank Udvari, were selected in the builders category. Doug Harvey, Chuck Rayner and Tommy Smith were picked by the selection committee in the players section. The NHL reverse draft, to benefit American and Western Hockey League clubs, saw 28 players selected from special NHL "unprotected lists" at $15,000 each and a second phase saw four players change clubs at $7,500 apiece. Charlie Burns, Bob Nevin and Jacques Caron were the only players with NHL experience involved in the deals. Robinson also had another double in the game to move into the 36th spot on the all- time list. Clyde Wright went 7 1-3 innings to gain the victory. Dwight Evans had a solo homer and Carl Yastrzemski $ three- run shot for the Red Sox. Jim Spencer drove in two runs to spark the Rangers' victory over the Indians. Spencer knocked in a run in the first inning with an infield out and drilled a two-run homer in the seventh as the Rangers beat Gaylord Perry. Toby Harrah also homered for Texas while Buddy Bell hit a solo shot for Cleveland. White Sox Split Pair With Tigers DETROIT (UPI) - The Chicago White Sox earned a split of their two-game series by pounding out 13 hits, including four home runs, in a 10-2 massacre Wednesday night of the Detroit Tigers. The computer — like Chicago batters punched out 17 hits Tuesday night, only to lose 6-5 when Frank Howard hit a two- run home run in the eighth. However they proceeded to fold, mutilate, and spindle Detroit pitchers from the very.iirst batter Wednesday. Stan Bahnsen, who .'helped bury his father the previous night, spaced out nine hits to win his seventh game in-12 decisions and got his fifth^complete game, as many as Tief'had all last season. "It takes a great deal of courage to do something like that," Manager Chuck Tanner said. "But life must go on."
