American Association Oaks Edged, 4-3 Nicholson's 400-Foot Blast Lets Omaha Gain Split in Series By Bill Bryson (Staff Writer) OMAHA, NEB, — Dave Nicholson's 400-foot home run into a stiff breeze was the main reason the Royals got more nourishment from five hits than the Iowa Oaks did from a dozen singles Sunday night. Nicholson boomed his homer to left center after Luis Alcaraz doubled one run across in the third inning to snap a 1-1 tie. That was all Omaha needed to square the four-game series with a 4-3 victory. Bob Meyer, with one-out relief help from Bob Duliba, rebuffed the Royals on one single the rest of the way. The Oaks chipped away at Jerry Cram for one run on a walk and two singles in the seventh, then fell one short^of a tie with three singles in the eighth. They lost one prospective run-maker in the eighth when Joe Solimine was gunned down at second base after his liner to right advanced the singling Wayne Norton to third. Velazquez Hurt Joe tried for second when right fielder George Spriggs fired to third, too late to nip Norton. Steve Boros 1 quick throw nailed Solimine. Tim Talton, in action because Fred Velazquez had suffered a dislocated right wrist, scored Norton with a single, but Ernie Fazio's grounder ended the threat. Cram blazed two of his 12 strikeouts to help keep the Oaks at bay in the ninth. Jim Driscoll then singled, but Ossie Chavarria grounded out. Velazquez was a casualty of an odd accident that also injured a young girl in a box seat. Fred, whose single helped the Oaks score in the second, twisted his wrist on a swing for strike one in the fourth. The bat flew from his hands. Fortunately, it hit the railing in front of the box seats and was slowed down before it struck the girl a glancing blow on the forehead. Gets Ice Pake Velazquez rushed over to check the girl's condition, before having his wrist treated. She was only slightly injured. After first aid, she returned to her seat with an ice pack on her head. Fred's dislocation was in the area where he had a fracture last summer. He returned to Des Moines for X-rays this OAKS- Please turn to Page Two L. Pet. 37 .644 .584 G.B. Standings w. Omaha 67 Tulsa 59 42 .584 6>/2 Indianapolis 55 46 .545 10>/z Iowa 44 56 .440 21 Okla.

DIPaglia, D.M. ..71-74-73—219 •Professional. By Chuck Burdick Rod Bliss III withstood the closing charges of Altoona professional Larry Ramsey and veteran Des Moines amateur Sarg Fontanini Sunday to win the Herman Sani Open golf tournament with a two-under- par 214. Bliss, 26, a Des Moines bonding company employe, built a two-strike lead with a four-under-par 68 on the morning round, then held on despite a closing 76 as most of the early contenders faded. It wasn't until the final nine that Ramsey, 30, and Fontanini, 53, made their bids. Ramsey shot rounds of 72 and 70 Sunday. Big Rush Ramsey was three over par for the tourney after blowing a seven-inch putt on the seventh green, then really got his game going. He blasted his second shot on the 496-yard, par-5 eleventh within four feet of the pin, then dropped his putt. He added birdie putts of 20 and 10 feet at Nos. 13 and 15 to close with a 32 and a 54- hole total of 215, a shot behind Bliss. It was the third time Ramsey won the low pro award in the tourney. His best previous finish here was in 1965 when he lost in a playoff to amateur Floren DiPaglia. The victory netted Ramsey $200. Fontanini, who barely qualified for the championship flight with a 75 Friday, was perhaps the steadiest player Sunday. After an opening 72, he came back with a 69—starting his surge at No. 14. Bad Time He hit his tee shot within four inches of the hole there, added another birdie with a two-footer on the fifteenth, then rolled in a 40-footer for another birdie at the seventeenth. Bliss, competing in his first tournament in six week, had a few shaky minutes on the final hole, when his second shot strayed far to the right and landed in a divot. "I probably should have played it safe, but I said 'what the heck' and went to the pin," said the former Southern Methodist University golfer who believes the SANI- Please turn to Page Three The Scoreboard National League Standings EASTERN DIVISION W.

CARLOS MAY'S BAT HITS UMP BALTIMORE, MD. (AP) Outfielder Carlos May of the Chicago White Sox was ejected from Sunday's game against Baltimore after tossing a bat which struck umpire Russ Goetz. May flipped the bat from about 20 feet away, after disputing a called third strike. It hit Goetz lightly on the legs after bouncing off the ground. Goetz then motioned May out of the game. After taking several more steps toward the dugout, May turned and threw his batting helmet at the umpire. DON DKYSDALE He had to leave in the third inning of Friday's game after being hit on the pitching thumb ; by a line drive. The Dodgers shelled the big right-hander for 10 hits, including Sudakis' sixth homer, which broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth. Dodger starter Don Drysdale, struggling with a sore shoulder, boosted his record to 5-3. He gave up Ron Santo's twenty-first homer in the third inning and gave way to reliever Pete Mikkelsen after Billy Williams led off the sixth with his eleventh homer. The Dodgers took a 1-0 lead in the third on a double by Willie Davis and Tom Haller's single. Sudakis opened the fourth with his homer and singles by Hutton, Ted Sizemore and Willie Crawford made it 3-1. Singles by Len Gabrielson, Su- dakis and Hutton led to two more runs in the fifth. The Dodgers added another in the ninth on a triple by Gabrielson and Sudakis' sacrifice fly. LOS ANGELES t CHICAGO ..

(AP) — Joe Lahoud's two run homer in the twentieth inning snapped a 2-2 deadlock and Boston downed the Pilots, 5-3, Sunday in the longest game in the majors this season. Jim Lonborg, the Red Sox's eighth pitcher in the 5-hour, 52- minute struggle, opened the twentieth with a single off Bob Locker, the sixth of seven Seattle hurlers. Rico Fetrocelli bunted into a force at second, but Lahoud followed with his seventh homer. ' George Scott's single, a wild pitch by Gary Roggenburk and a single by Russ Gibson produced another Boston run.

Open tournament. The victory extended couple of streaks for Wilkinson, who is working toward his doctor of philosophy degree in oriental studies at the University of Iowa. Five-for-Five Steve now has won singles titles in all five Iowa tournaments he has entered this summer. Ironically, one championship he lost was to Rompf's younger brother, Jon, in the Nebraska Open at Omaha. The appearance here was Wilkinson's first in the Iowa Open since 1962, but the outcome was the same. He won the title then, too. Steve, who was seeded No. 1, finished the tournament without losing a set in any of his five matches. His closest call came in Sunday's finale.
