Fayetteville starter Lawson Osburn began almost as impressively, allowing just one hit in the first.three innings. But Springdale pushed across a run in the fourth on a walk by Carroll Campbell, a fly-ball single that left fielder Clark Lewis lost in tiie l i g h t s , a double steal and an RBI grounder by Jerry Burton.

After Bob Stephens walked and stole second without a throw. Pierce delivered another wild pitch. That scored Atha and sent Stephens to third. Pierce then settled down and should have gotten out of the inning, but shortstop Randy Eden kicked Mark Prenger's two-«ot ground ball and Stephens scored. College Club led 2-1.

Randy Porter got the first hit for College Club, a double leading off the sixth Inning. One out later, Atha atoned for his error with a single to drive in the go-ahead run. Those two hits were the only ones Pierce allowed, but they were enough to make a loser out of him. Springdale put two runners on base in the bottom of the seventh, but Osburn got out of the jam to,win his third game of the year in four decisions. He struck out five batters to Pierce's 12, b u t walked only two to his opponent's.three. A bit of daring base running by Campbell in the first inning came back to haunt Springdale.
