A combination of timely hitting and Oak errors made it a breeze for the 89ers, who won their sixth straight while Iowa lost again after having an e i g h t-game winning streak snapped in the first game of the series here. The Oaks' ninth-inning uprising was climaxed by Jim Driscoll's two-run pinch- homer. That made the score 9-6 and Scott relievedjjpinks. Allan Lewis singled out the reliever got Tony LaRussa on a grounder to end the inning. Gene Tenace drew a walk to open the inning.

TEXAS TAKES TITLE FROM BULLDOGS-~ 7-loot High Jump by Wanamaker Hickman's three-run homer and Ernie Banks' 499th of his career spurred the Cubs to an 8-1 victory over Cincinnati Saturday.- Hickman's fifth homer highlighted a four-run second inning and Banks' second came in the seventh after Johnny Callison had singled for his third hit of the game. ' Bill Hands (5-1) contained the hard-hitting Reds, but lost his shutout in the second when Lee May slammed a solo homer. The Cubs socked starter Gary Nolan, who came in with a 5-0 record, for four runs in the second. - . The Cubs added another run in the fifth when Callison doubled, took third .on Banks' single and scored while Hickman was grounding out. With two out in the seventh, Callison singled and Banks, seeking to become the ninth man in history to hit 500 home runs, slugged a Don Gullett pitch over the left field catwalk. Hands, who scattered seven hits, scored the Cubs' final run in the eighth when he walked and came around on two-out singles by Glenn Beckert and Billy Williams.

Drake took second with 114 and surprising Cincinnati was a close third at 106. First Ever "That's the first time I've ever cleared 7 feet," said an elated Wanamaker. "I've never even done it in practice before. "And the way my luck was going, I didn't think I'd be able to dp it. I didn't even get over 64 until my third try because I was having some difficulty with my steps. Then it took me three tries to make 6-8. "After my first jump at 7 feet, the bar was measured and it was tilting slightly — one-quarter inch too high OB oneend- "It's a good thing that was corrected because I graced the bar when I finally made it over — yep, it was the third again — and I watched it wobble while I was in the pit. But fortunately it stayed up there." .!

Actually, Amundson passed jfor both touchdowns. The trouble was, one of the tosses was stolen by Craig Sabatini who returned it 97 yards for a score. "Amundson has been trying to combine track with football '*" tiffs T *prfag," Majors said. "In all, he missed about six of our 20 days of practice. "He" threw the shot and the discus in a track meet this morning (Saturday). He should do better in football in the fall when he can concentrate on it." After the error-laden game, Majors said the quarterback job was still up for grabs. He added, though, that Obert Tisdale probably doesn't figure in the signal-calling picture. Tisdale was moved, at his own request, to monsterman on defense this spring. He was the ;op quarterback all last fall, but completed only 41 per 'cent of his passes. "Amundson is the best runner among our quarterbacks," Majors said. "But there were too many interceptions today to tell who is our best over-all. The job is wide.open as far as I'm concerned.
