REP 1 ' White Sox outlast Cubs INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) — 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 2-1 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. FAN FARE By Walt Ditzen TOUHNAVKNT of* CHAMPIONS AKQON o. SEE THE UlTtlfi REP UISHT?

He's Leslie Scott, who hurled six shutout innings before the Iowa Oaks teed off on a pair of his successors for a 4-3 exhibition victory at Rendezvous Park. Scott, a six-foot, 165-pound righthander from Panama, took the mound yesterday hoping to win a spot in manager Charlie Fox's four-man Exhibitions At Lakeland, Fla, Cincinnati ~. 012 010 400-115 2 Detroit 102 OOP 501—» 7 0 pitching rotation. 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. 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. "We had a great team in the Dominican League," said Scott. "We had the three Alous in the outfield and major leaguers at almost every other position."

Ryan did say he hopes to acquire veteran lefty pitcher Larry Miller, who was cut yesterday by the Baltimore Orioles. Miller remains 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 elqhth and Jim Drlscoll 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 Jeffcoat tnd Don Carrlthers scheduled to pitch for Fox's crew. Western Arizona Bureau YUMA—The San Diego Padres registered their 22nd, 23rd and 24th home runs of the spring season yesterday, topping the Oakland Athletics here, 10-4. 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 wh s en d with ^ ena doubling and coming home on a double by Gonzalez in the bottom of the first. rVtS May. 'Detroit, Horton. !—»•" Af Bradenton, Fla.

Bowling Tips By Don Carter SHORT OR LONG BACKS WING? There is a wide variation in the amount of backswing used by the successful pro bowlers, so I cannot say that a high swing or a short one is best. I have noticed, however, that the group of tournament winners who claim to require little practice have one thing in common: A very short back- swing. The answer would seem to be that it is easier (o maintain good timing with a brief tockswing.

Oaklander Kubiak opened the third with a lazy fly ball that drifted over the left field fence, returning the lead to Oakland. Bando hiked the lead to 4-2 as he watched his routine fly become a home run as right fielder 01- lie Brown started inward, then backed helplessly to the fence. Oakland closed its half of the fourth by stranding two, then allowed Padres first basemen Davis to float a home-run ball well over the right field fence with a man on, closing the fourth with a tying score. DAVIS DID A repeat performance in the bottom of the sixth, pounding out two more RBIs, but this time knocking a line-drive home run ball that didn't land until after it crossed the street, well beyond the right field fence, leaving San Diego on top, 6-4.
