ARKANSAS Dodgers Best Cincy 3-2 Marshall Saves LA Again By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS It's getting so they don't even bother answering the phone in the Los Angeles Dodger bull- · pen. Mike Marshall knows the call will be for him without picking it up. i-M a rsh a 11' s ironman act reached a record 12 consecutive ganies-Tuesday night and he earned his eighth straight victory as the Dodgers bested Cincinnati 3-2, stretching their National League West lead to a fat 8V4 games. No baseball pitcher ever worked in more than nine straight games before Marshall started his daily march to the mound two weeks ago. He hasn't missed a game since and has now appeared in an arm- busting 52 of Los Angeles' 77 games. "1 don't know what the limit is, but I haven't found it yet," said Marshall, who ran his record to 10-3 iwith the victory over the Reds. "We've only played half a year," he added. "How can I be tired?" Elsewhere in the National League Tuesday night, Houston downed Atlanta 5-1, Pittsburgh topped Montreal 4-2, New York trimmed Philadelphia 4-2, Chicago edged St. Louis 4-3 and San Diego defeated San Francisco 5-1.

METS 4, PHILLIES 2 Tom Seaver, who gained his fifth victory of the season for the New York Mets, needed late help from reliever Jack Aker to six-hit Philadelphia. Boston Beats Baltimore Tough Running Trips Texas By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Eric Soderholm was fined for poor baserunning and made the Texas Rangers pay for it. Clipped of $50 Monday night for fouling up a suicide squeeze play, · the Minnesota infieldcr made sure he didn't foul up anything Tuesday night. At the swing of Glenn Borgmann's bat in the ninth inning, Soderholm vyas off and scored the winning run in the Twins' 5-4' victory over the Rangers. "You have to gamble late in the game," - Soderholm said after roming home on Bor- g'mann's double oft the left field wall. "We might as well win it now as wait around." . Soderholm made a head-long dive into .home plate and just beat the. relay throw to Texas catcher Jim Sundberg. It was so close that Texas Manager Billy.. Martin and Sundberg protested the play vehemently. "There' was no question about it," ^Martin said. "He was out." "I wouldn't have argued like I did if I didn't feel we had him," said Sundberg. "He missed the plate with his hand and tried to get his leg in, but I had my foot and glove right there."

Weiskopf To Defend British Open Title Despite Injury COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Tom Weiskopf will defend his British Open Golf Championship despite a hairline fracture in the left wrist that hampered his play in the Western Open last week. "Of course it hurts, but I can play with it," Weiskopf said Tuesday before boarding a plane for an overnight flight to London and the defense of his title in the most venerable of all the world's golf tournaments. The British Open will be held in St. Annes, England, July 1013. "I think I should defend," Weiskopf said. "I want to play. That tournament means a great deal to me. I don't want to withdraw. I feel I owe it to them to play. "The doctor said it probably won't cause much more damage to play in one more tournament." He said, hawever, he is no! sure when he will next compete. His next scheduled start after the British Open is in the Canadian Open, in which he also is the defending champion, at Port Credit, Ont., outside of Toronto, July 25-28. Those two titles climaxed an incredible season that vaulted Weiskopf to the front rank of the game's great stars last year. He won seven tournaments in four countries and collected well over $300,000 in total prize money. Special Match Race To Pit Top Horses INGLEWOOD, Calif.

(AP) -American sprinter Steve Williams will run only in the 100- meter dash at the U.S.-USSR track meet this weekend, U.S. head coach Jimmy Carnes said Tuesday. Williams' decision aparently rules out any meeting at the sprint gold medalist Valeriy Williams and 1972 Olympic sprint gold medalist Valeriy Borzov of the Soviet Union. Soviet 'Coach Igor Ter-Ova- nesyan said Monday that Bor- zov would compete only in the 200-meter race. Carnes said Williams indicated he did not want to compete in the 200.or 400-meter relay .because running the curve, necessary in both events, aggravated an old injury. The San Diego State · runner will be replaced.,by Mark Lutz ol Kansas in the" 200-meter dash and North Carolina Centra hurdler Charles Foster in the 400-meter relay. Wiliams won both the 101 andl 200 and outran Borzov in E leg of the 400-meter relay a last year's meet in Minsk. He had hoped to" face Borzov in tin 100 in Durham. Lutz finished second to Wil liams in the 200 at the 197 Russian meet.
