White Sox outlast Cubs INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) - 1 - Rookie third baseman Bill Melton scored on his double and homer and rookie pitcher Gerry Nyman hurled a one- hit, seven-inning stint to hand the Chicago White Sox a 2-i verdict over a second-string Chicago Cub lineup yesterday. -Cub manager Leo Durocher, reportedly unhappy over the condition of Donie Bush Field, started a reserve lineup before a crowd of 4,196. Nyman, who had a 1.00 spring earned run average, pitched scoreless ball with the Cubs' only run coming off Dan Osinski on a two-out homer in the ninth by Ken Rudolph, rookie catcher who started in left field. Melton's double and Luis Aparicio's single gave the Sox a first inning tally off loser Ken Holtzman. In the eighth Melton belted his fifth homer of the spring off Hank Aguirre. Durocher late in the game used as pinchhitters Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, Billy Williams, Don Kessinger, Glenn Beckert and Randy Hundley, all regulars. Their second straight win over the Cubs gave the Sox a 13-11 spring record. The Cubs now stand 12-14.

HE NOT ONLY won a job, he quite likely vaulted to the head of the pack. "I think I've got the job now," said Scott. "From now on it's up to me to go out and DO the job." Scott, a cousin of the Minnesota Twins' Rod Carew, allowed just three hits in his six-inning tour of duty yesterday. Twice he had men on first and third with one out and managed to keep the Scoreboard clean. "HE SHOWED ME a lot out there," said Fox. "He could be a great relief pitcher with his stuff, but he's such a good athlete you almost have to get him in that rotation." "I don't care if I start or relieve," said Scott, who did a little of both while compiling an 8-7 record and 2.47 earned run average last year at Class AA Amarillo. "I just want to play. I like to get in there every day, as a pinch hitter or a pinch runner or anyplace they can use me." Like most Latins, he excells at all phases of the game. He hit .405 last year in 42 plate appearances for Amarillo. HE CAME ON like gangbusters as a pitcher last winter, being named outstanding hurler in two leagues south of the border. He compiled a 5-3 record and 1.30 ERA in the Dominican League and a 3-1 mark and 1.64 ERA in Panama. EXHIBITION EXTRAS — The Giants still are without the services of Infleld- er Tito Fuentes, sent down Sunday by San Francisco. Fuentes reportedly went to Florida to pick up his car. Phoenix general manager Rosy Ryan said Fuentes hasn't informed him when he'll loin the club. Ryan did say he hopes to acquire veteran lefty pitcher Larry Miller, who was cut yesterday by the Baltimore Orioles. Miller rs- mains Oriole property, but Ryan said there's a good chance Phoenix can obtain his services on a loan or exchange basis. Miller was the workhorse of the Phoenix bullpen last season. Phoenix led 3-0 after seven innlnqs of yesterday's contest, but two-run homers by Iowa's Larry Elliot in the eighth and Jim Driscoll In the ninth turned It around. The Giants stole four bases, but their only extra-base hit was John Marsden's seventh-inning triple. Phoenix, now 5-6, plays Amarillo at Franc- cisco Grande today with Hal Jetfcoat tnd Don Carrithers scheduled to pitch for Fox's crew.

It was San Diego's 14th and final game of the year at Yuma. Keegan Field's 1,120 spectators watched the Padres collect 10 hits, commit one error and leave five men on base, while the Athletics gathered eight hits, two errors and left seven stranded. Winning Padre right-hander Dick Kelley allowed four runs on seven hits, to losing pitcher Jim Hunter's nine runs on eight hits. POWERS BEHIND the Padres yesterday were Bill Davis, Nate Colbert, Tony Gonzalez and Bobby Pena, while Sal Bando, Ted Kubiak and Tom Reynolds paced the Athletics. The Padres tallied first with Pena doubling and coming home on a double by Gonzalez in the bottom of the first. Kelley walked the first Athletic, Bando, in the top of the second, Dan Cater singled and both were plated by switch-hitter Tom Reynolds, who tripled. The Padres tied it at 2-2 in the second on a homer by Nate Colbert.
