"Members of the Shaffer Royals, sponsored by the father-and-son team of June and Butch Shaffer, worked the tournament in a professional manner. Both division championships went right down to the wire." Trenton Mercantile captured the 'A' Division crown with an 8-2 victory over arch- rival Trenton Trust while Howell's Liquor of Trenton defeated Milan Coors, 6-2, to cop championship honors in the 'B' Division 'A* Division Trenton Trust advanced to the 'A' Division championship round with a 5-3 victory over Smitty's Belgian Horses of Braymer. Smitty's took home the third place trophy Trailing most of the way, Trenton Trust exploded for four runs in the top half of the fifth to charge ahead for good against Smitty's in a semifinal game. Trenton Trust, with its back to the wall, erupted for three runs in the bottom half of the seventh to keep alive its championship hopes, scoring a 4-3 victory over Trenton Mercantile in the initial championship game. But it was a different story in the grand finale with Trenton Mercantile dominating the contest from start to finish.

Ad' Quiz clowns Rangers KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The more work, the better, as far as Dan Quisenberry is concerned. And Sunday the Kansas City Royals' ace reliever especially wanted to work against the Texas Rangers. "I usually pitch with very little emotion," said Quisenberry, who quelled a ninth-mnmg Ranger rally for a 5-3 Kansas City victory and his nth save of the season. "But I felt a lot of emotion out there today after getting hit hard last (Saturday) night I was a little pumped " The sinker-balling Quisenberry, a 3-1 loser in 12 innings Saturday night, came on in the ninth Sunday with runners at tirst and second and nobody out. But he retired George Wright on a groundball to first, struck out pinch-hitter Bobby Johnson and got Buddy Bell to ground to third to preserve the victory for Mike Armstrong, 1-0. It was the third consecutive appearance for Quisenberry, who has pitched in 17 of Kansas City's 39 games "I like to work a lot Relief pitching is either too much or too little, and I'd rather have too much," said Quisenberry, who leads the American League in saves and owns a glossy 1 62 e a r n e d run average He hasn't walked a batter in 33 1-3 innings this season "I felt better today than I felt in the previous two days I always think I'm better with more work 1 think the ball sinks a little more " Pinch h i t t e r Cesar Geronimo delivered the game- winning hit, a bloop double in front of diving right-fielder Larry Parnsh that drove in two runs m the bottom of the eighth The Rangers owned a 3-2 lead by virtue of a two-out er- i or by shortstop Onix Concep cion and singles by Randy Bass, and pinch-hitter Bill Stem in the top of the eighth. But Amos Otis and Hal McRae touched Texas starter Rick Honeycutt, 0-5, for one- out infield hits in the bottom of the inning before Willie Aikens struck out Steve Comer replaced Honeycutt, and Martin greeted him with a lazy single to right, scoring Otis Then Geronimo, who hadn't batted since May 8, pinch hit for Frank White and lofted his game-winning hit to hand the Rangers their 21st defeat in their last 26 games Get results with a Want Ad 1 Dodgers blank Cards LOS ANGELES (AP) - Bob Welch of the Los Angeles Dodgers can throw hard enough to strike just about anybody out But he's learned that there's more to pitching then trying to blow the ball by people Dodger Manager Tom Lasorda believes the young right-hander could become one of baseball's top pitchers "He's been pitching very well," said Lasorda after Welch blanked St. Louis on five hits in a 5-0 victory by the Dodgers Sunday. "He's got outstanding ability He can be one of the premier pitchers in the big leagues If he puts it all together, he's going to be something." Afterwards, Welch talked like a man who has learned a lot about the art of pitching "Location is much more important than velocity," he said "Today, I had pretty good rhythm, I could feel it. I threw maybe 20 percent breaking balls and put them in good spots I'm really learning to pitch with the breaking ball for the first time this year." Welch, 5-2, walked two and struck out seven He didn't allow a runner past second base in pitching his second shutout Major League and third complete game of the season Welch, 25, seemed to be breezing, but he said that wasn't so "It wasn't easy, I worked hard," he said "I went in and out on them and stayed aggressive I had a good finish, I was pretty tired at the end. I've thrown the baseball really well, I just hope it continues." The win was the second in a row for the Dodgers over the NL East leaders and lifted their record to the .500 mark The Dodgers took a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning off previously unbeaten Bob Forsch, 5-1, who was battered for 10 hits and all five Los Angeles runs before being lifted in the sixth. The injury riddled Cardinals, already without second baseman Tommy Herr and catchers Darrell Porter and Gene Tenace because of injuries, will be without another standout, outfielder George Hendrick, for at least a few days. Hendrick had one hit in four at-bats Sunday, but clearly was hampered by a leg injury "I'm going to rest Hendrick until Friday, you can't send a sick horse to a race," said St Louis Manager Whitey Herzog. "Not only do we not have the firepower, but we have a lot of gimpy legged guys out Standings Pet 683 641 513 313 462 425 410 .667 651 564 465 432 306 273 584 - 525 500 429 421 Western Division 26 K 21 there "We've played 42 games and we've had our (starting) lineup only six times We're fortunate to have hung in there as long as we have COMPLETE STOCK!
