White Sox outlast Cubs INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) — Rookie third baseman Bin Melton scored on his double and homer and rookie pitcher Gerry Nyrnan 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. Nyflian, 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.

(AP) The Cleveland Indians belted Juan Maricbal for 14 hits in six innings and got eight more off two other San Francisco Giant pitchers to blast the Giants, 12-7, in an exhibition baseball game yestrday. tMarichal, pitching for the first time in more than a week since undergoing minor surgery on his toes, gave up a solo home run to Rich Schein- blum in the fourth and the Indians scored in every inning he pitched except the sixth. Mike McCormick held the Indians scoreless in the seventh and eighth but Cleveland battered rookie Joe Costello for five runs on five hits in the ninth. Jack Hiatt homered for the Giants. By BOB EGER MESA — The Phoenix Giants lost the ball game yesterday, but they may have found their opening night pitcher. 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 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 Exhibition Baseball At Lakeland, Fla.

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 F\)x. "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. "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." Scott took early spring training with the San Francisco Giants and impressed manager Clyde King. "We may be hearing from him in the future," said King. EXHIBITION EXTRAS — The Giants still are without the services of infielder Tito Fuentes, sent down Sunday bv 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 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 innings of yesterday's contest, but two-run homers by Iowa's Larry Elliot in the eighth and Jim Drlseoll In the ninth turned it around. The Giants stole four bases, but their only exfra-base hlf was John Marsden's seventh-inning triple. Phoenix, now 5-6, plays Amarillo at Franc- cisco Grande today with Hal Jelfcoat 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 KFauss» Sal Bando, Ted Kubiak and Tom Reynolds paced the Athletics. STRONG WINDS and thin, Arizona air turned ordinary fly balls into home runs yesterday. 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 OAKLAND _ t SAN DIEGO ab r h b ab r h bi Kubiak ss 5121 Roble* ? r -" D1 Dnldson 2b 5010 Pena 2b 4000 Gonzalez cf 2211 Brown rf 411gBa.yis.1b.
