Inning streak to 10 games, defeated but retained their 6V, game lead in the Th* n~i. J!l!!!L-r-.-c ,» „.__...... .' By United Press International The National League reached the All-Star break of its season with the most lop-sided situation since the 1950s when the Brooklyn Dodgers' "Boys of Summer" .staged their famous blitzes. The Cincinnati Reds, extending their winning streak to 10 games, defeated the New York Mets, 5-3, Sunday and opened up a 12^-game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Western Division. The Pittsburgh Pirates, meanwhile, bowed to the San Diego Padres, 7-5, but retained their 6% game lead in the Eastern Division when the Houston Astros beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 9-5. Teams have rallied from farther back, of course, but all signs at this halfway point of the season point to a pair of run'away division races. The Reds, spotting Tom Seaver a 3-0 lead, rallied with four runs in the seventh and one in the eighth. Pete Rose's two-run single climaxed the four-run seventh inning which tagged Seaver, who had won eight in a row, with his fifth loss against 13 wins. Quad Cities Victory Is First For Maltbie M^OI .TWIT. Ill lllPT\ — Tlrtnlrln TOstrrA** Hn**nn*« 1*.. «.«. -.*.„_!-_ • __.._ .* f\n tVio fi^ot Vinlsi nt 4Vm *ln.< ««._.Ji «™> 11 * »_ , * MOLINE, 111. (DPI) - Rookie Roger Maltbie' says he can shoot as well as anyone when he gets hot. Sunday, in the final round of the Quad Cities Open, he was hot. Maltbie, who has been on the regular tour less than a year, blistered the 6,400-yard Oakwood Country Club course with a seven under par, record- tying 64 to edge leader Dave Eichel- berger by one stroke and win the $75,000 tournament. Eichelberger finished the day with a one over par 72. "Any time I can get it going, I can shoot as well as anyone," Maltbie said after his round. The 24 year old from Modesto, Calif., who began the day seven strokes behind Eichelberger, started his charge North, South Preps Trade 'Star' Victories NORMAL, 111.

In the Class AA contest, The North beat the South 99-90, feeding off the 20 points provided by Chicago Bloom's 6- foot-7 center, Kelven Small, who was voted the game's most valuable player. The South triumphed 83-78 in Class A play. Joppa's Mike Roundtree scored 18 points, four of them in the last two minutes, to lead the victory. The Class AA North played to an easy victory, leading at halftime 49-48. The North only went behind once - in the second half - that time with 16 minutes remaining. The South held a 57-56 lead only temporarily but the North went ahead with 13 minutes to play. Bill Ricca of Peoria Bergan and 'Bill Smith of Benton led the South with 13 points each, followed by Terry Bussard of Olney with 12. Behind Small in 'the North's scoring were Larry Williams of Chicago Phillips with" 18 and Derrick Mayes of Elgin with 13. Larry Lubin of Evanston and Pete Boesen of Maine South each had 12 ppints. With the score knotted 76-76 with 1:51 left in the Class A contest, Roundtree dumped in a 17-foot jumper. Mike Henry of Venice added two free throws to give the South a 80-76 lead.

The North led by as many as 11, 2211, with 10:25 left in the first half, before the South tied it with five minutes left in the half and went ahead at halftime, 34-32.

Greenlee Wins Speedway Feature Rockford's Tom Greenlee outlasted six challengers in a tightly bunched field to win the 30-lap feature race at Freeport Speedway Sunday night. The victory, in which Greenlee outlasted Steve Buholzer of Monroe, Wis., and Sam Reakes of Rockford, boosted Greenlee to fourth place in the speedway's season point standings. A season high 33 cars were on hand for Sunday night's program, which included a feature, semifeature, trophy dash and three heat races. Rockford's John Knauss, driving a 1974 Camaro, ran away from the pack to win the first heat race, with John Engelkins of Morrison finishing second and Terry Pfeiffer of Freeport finishing third. Greenlee tuned up for his big feature win with a close victory (less.than a car length) over Mike Niffenyger of Colona, Iowa, in the second heat race. Gary Hunt of Franklin Grove took third. Freeporter Jim Thruman, last week's feature winner, nosed out Jim Burbridge of Delhi, Iowa, at the finish line to win the third heat race. The battle for the third and fourth spots was just as close, with Jim Strube of Peoria slipping past Don Bolander of Glasford. Bolander turned it on full throttle for the semifeature, though, and lapped every other driver on. the track except second-place finisher Bob Nestby of Dubuque, Iowa, and Bill Schweder of Pleasant Valley, Iowa, who took third. With two weeks remaining until the speedway's midseason championships, Strube and John Connelly of Delhi share the point standings lead with 1,325 apiece. Reakes is third with 985, followed by Bolander (925), Greenlee (890), Buholzer (850), Bob Grenoble (835), Jim Leverington (790), Burbridge (785), Thruman (680) and Hunt (480).

Then, with the aid of Eichelberger's collapse, he tied Eichelberger, Howard Twitty and Terry Dill for the lead at six under at the turn by sinking three birdies. He added two more birdies on the back nine for a total of nine under par 275 and his first regular tournament win, worth $15,000. Mark Hayes pulled himself up with a 69 for the day and a 277 total to move into third place, just ahead of Gary McCord, who had a six under 278. "I don't believe I could have won today without Dave Stockton and Homero Blancas," Maltbie said. "They were always patting me on the back and getting my thinking on the 'right track. That five-foot putt on the 18th green was the hardest of my life." Blancas finished tied with two others for fifth place at five under 279. One of the two was another rookie, Twitty, who held the lead after Thursday's first round. The other fifth-place finisher was Dill, who haunted Eichelberger throughout the first three rounds. Stockton, the defending champion, finished in a tie for seventh with four others at 281. Maltbie, a 1972 graduate of San Jose State, had earned just under $20,000 this season prior to the Quad Cities tournament. The winner's check was the biggest Maltbie has ever picked up in his short career. But, of more significance, "It makes me a tournament winner - that's the most important thing," he said. Gene Locklear drove in two runs with a homer and Hector'Torres knocked in two with a double in the Padres' victory over the Pirates. Brent Strom pitched 7 1-3 innings, allowing 11 hits and four runs, to receive credit for his fifth victory. Dock Ellis was the Pirates' loser. Cliff Johnson drove in three runs and Dave Roberts pitched 2 1-3 innings of shutout relief for the Astros, who dealt the Dodgers the last loss of a disastrous road trip. Willie Howard'also had three hits in the Astros' 15-hit attack, saddling Toni Underwood with his seventh loss. Mike Schmidt hit his 16th homer for the Phillies. The St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Dodgers, 2-1; the San Francisco Giants beat the Chicago Cubs, 4-1, arid the Atlanta Braves outlasted the Montreal Expos, 5-4, in 14 innings in the other National League games.
