With the 240-pound Reed muscling the 7-foot 2-inch Chamberlain away from the basket, Frazier then led the Knicks to a 38-24 first-quarter lead that stretched to 69-42-at the half. Frazier had 23 points by halftime as the Knicks outshot the troubled Lakers, 58 per cent to 41, and forced 45 turnovers with their pressure defense.

Rafael Batista's two-rim pinch double in the eighth inning swung a wild-hitting melee Oklahoma City's way, 10-7, Friday night as Iowa's Oaks were toppled for the second straight time. .The setback trimmed the Oaks' lead in the American Association's Eastern Division to three games over Indianapolis. A couple of three-nip bursts netted an early 8-2 lead for Oklahoma.City starter Steve Bailey, who lost it all at once on Iowa catcher Gene Tenace's grand-slam homer in the fourth. Then Tenace vaulted the Oaks in front, 7-6, with a double in back of Bill McNulty's single in the sixth. Tenace, who had gone hitless in his first six trips in the series here, protected his league lead in the home run and RBI categories, boosting his totals to six and 23, respectively. StopPizarro But the 89ers finally stopped Iowa starter Juan Pizarro in the seventh. Batista's two-bag- ger was hit No. 14 off the veteran left-hander, whose record dropped to 2-2. Pizarro, who was the victim of three unearned runs in the hird, almost escaped the seventh without a run.
