Making only his fifth start of the season, the 30.year-old right-hander threw 79 pitches to the plate against the Oakland A's and 60 of them were either strikes -- he fanned four--or resulted in outs. Bosnian also threw twice to first base and one of them was high, glancing off the glove of Tom McCraw for a two-base error. The miscue cost Bosman perfect game and he had to settle for a no-hitter as the Indians snapped a six game slide and Oakland's six game winning streak by defeating t h e world champion A's 4-0.

"I always set goals for myself," the 30-year-old right- hander said. "Tonight my goal was to go out there and pitch a low-scoring ball game and go the distance."

"I had to stay in there and pilch. My slider was working well" and my fastball was sailing and sinking." Bosman said it was very quiet on the bench and, even though. he was aware of the 24,302 fans roaring with every pilch he made in the final two innings, he never broke his con- centration. "It was all between Johnny and me," he said. "I had to concentrate. When I got to the mound all I saw was Johnny's fingers and the glove...! "shook a little bit when I was warming up in the ninth..."

A plague of almost Biblical pro- lortions descended on Fayetteville's favorite sons, sending unattended baseballs squirting n every direction and faces staring at the sky in utter disbelief. In all, Fayetteville committed enough miscues to send Springdale into a final showdown match with Rogers 16-8 as the Northwest Arkansas District Babe Ruth Baseball Tournament ncared its conclusion. Then in the nightcap spunky Springdale eked'out a 10-9 victory over Rogers, the only previously undefeated team .in the scored an error, Ken Baker tripled in Mark Peoples, Baker scored on Rick .Burton's single and Burton in turn scampered home on Fayetteville errors. At the end of the inning Springdale was in command 6-4. : , BRIEF RALLY In the fifth inning Fayeltevillc narrowed the gap. as Allred scored all the way from second to Gip Gibson's single. From there, unfortunately for Fayetteville fans, it was just about all Springdale. The bottom of the fifth literally turned into a nightmare as the Springdale bunch scored eight runs with hearly help from Ihe error plague. By the time the dust ha^l cleared from the final two hectic innings Springdale had scored two more runs and Fay- etleville one for the final 16-8 tourney, setting up a final game margin tonight beginning at 8:00. Fayetleville, obviously feeling Ihe effects of a solid week of tournament play, took an early 2-1 margin and expanded that lead to 4-1 as Kenny Harriman and Terry Fraley scored on a timely double by Rick Allred. Springdale marched right back however, to retake the lead in the bottom to the third when shortstop Dwight Nelson Htn, 19. STOLEN BASES -- Brock, StL, 58; M o r g a n , Cin, 40; Cedeno. Htn, 36.

The lead changed hands from inning to inning with Springdale trailing as rnuch as 9-5 before staging a late inning comeback that nipped Rogers.
