Every team in the double-elimination tournament las been double-eliminated except Fayelleville, Springdale and Rogers. Fayetteville showed Bentonville to the door Thursday night, beating the Tigers for the second lime this week. Benlon- ville played better Ulan its 25-2 embarrassment Monday night, but still lost 12-5. Rogers put itself in the best position by edging Springdale 6-5 in the winner's bracket. The Mountaineers trailed 5-2 in the seventh, but rallied for three runs to send the game into exlra innings. iWinning pitcher Johnny Corn scored on a wild pitch with two out in the eighth to end the game. Corn walked only two Springdale batters in going all t h e ' w a y for Rogers. Fayetteville and Springdale will meet at Jaycee' Stadium here tonight at 6 for the righ! to oppose Rogers in the second game. If the Mounties win, the tournament is theirs, If they lose, the championship gama ivill be played''at~a / pm4l5EtW'-: day. · · ' : *"' CURTSINGER STARTFD Mike. Curtsinger started for Fayetteville Thursday night'and looked invincible in striking out the first two Bentonville. batters. But just four hitlers later. he gave way to Rick Allred. Curtsinger had walked two baiters, given up a two-run triple to Greg Davis and then wild-pitched D a v i s home. Bentonville led 3-2. Allred allowed just.four hits and two runs the rest of the way, however, and Fayettevulc- was never ,in-'trouble after taking a 7-3 lead-with'five runs in the second. Curtsinger, who stayed in the game to play right field, started the inning by reaching on the first of four errors by ccnterfielder Steve Payne. | Calvin Tackett followed with an unplayable bunt single, the first of three straight hits by the ninth-place Fayettevil'.e batter. Kenny Harriman plaled Curtsinger with a safety squeeze, and T e r r y Fraley drove in Tackett with a ground ball. There were t\vo out and none on. but Bentonville pitcher Dale struck out Curtsinger, the 10th batter in the inning. Fayetteville put the game away with four more runs in :he third. The key blows'were doubles by Tackett and Allrd: and singles by Strange' anc Gebhart. Tackelt doubled again in the fourth and scored the final Fayetteville run on a single b y p i n c h - h i t t e r Charles Ferguson. To night's, opener will feature an attractive pitching, pairing of Strange against Springdale's Jerry Burton. West Fork Wins Twice .WEST FORK -- West Fork girls Softball teams took twin 'iclorics from Farminglon here Thursday evening. West Fork's Junior Miss team destroyed Farminglon 39-3. Dena Dennis was the winning pilcher and added two home runs.' Deborah Mullin.s produced a grand slam homer while Rena McAdoo, LaDonna Cornelius and Karen .Logsdon all had home runs. Becky Hungate Debra Moore, Jeannie Sizemore and Debbie Cruz all had threi hits. In the Petite League game West Fork defeated Farminglon 20-8. Connie Warrenn was the winning pitcher. She also belted a home run in a winning cause Dodgers Drop Montreal didn't need he arm. The National By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The one thing the Los Ange- es Dodgers needed . .. and yet was a shot in League West _eaders found- out Thursday night they may have lost one of ;heir best pitching arms going into a frenetic pennant chase. But they gave, themselves a shot in the arm by beating the Montreal Expos 7-5 to get a bit more breathing room; In other NL games, Philadelphia beat San Diego 8-5, Cincinnati slipped 6V4 games back of Los Angeles by losing to Chicago 3-2, Pittsburgh silenced Atlanta 4-0 and Houston belted St. Louis 8-2. New York and San Francisco were idle. Tommy John, at 13-3 the win- ningcst pitcher in the league this year, is going on the 21-day disabled list, the Dodgers said. The ruptured ligament in his .eft elbow could knock the ace left-hander out for the rest of the season, if he needs surgery. John was hurt in Wednesday night's loss to Montreal. But with a left arm gone, Los Angeles came up with an All- Star right arm. -They said they were calling up : right-hander Rex Hudson from Albuquerque. Hudson happens to have a 13-3 record and was the winning itcher earlier this week in the 'acific Coast League's All-Star Game. And another All-Star, Andy Messersmith, kept the Dodgers rolling with a seven-hit, 10- strikeout performance against the Expos. Phils 8, Padres 5 Deep enough' is where Mike Schmidt put a Bill Greif pitch- deep into the left field seats, a ;hree-run tie-breaking homer that capped inning and past the Padres. San Diego had taken a 5-3 lead with three runs in the seventh: ind Bonham set up what. roved to be the winnng' run vith a fifth-inning double /that iiolped Chicago.
