Bentonville had been a 6-5 winner over Rogers in Monday's competition. Fayetteville, the district champions, had drawn a bye on Monday. Bentonville took a 3-1 lead In the second and very nearly shattered the usually invincible Osburn. With Alan Dean and Dave Bohnsack aboard, catcher Kevin Whited arced a twisting home run to left. A subsequent walk and single, with only one out. almost banished the College Club stopper. But Osburn recovered, inducing Mike Kimmel to pop up and Vincent West to ground into force play. -Thereafter he blanyed the opponents, finishing with a five-hitter and fanning nine. College Club launched a game-sealing comeback in the third. After singling to open t h e i inning. Randy Porter scored a gift run on an error and two passed balls. Then, with Jackie Davis, Larry Atha and Rick Karnbach jamming the bases, Stephens, who had doubled in the second, cracked a long fly over the fence in left center. S t e p h e n s ' salvo rocketed College Club to a comfortable 7-3 lead. RALLY CONTINUES Later in the third, pitcher Osburn poked a single to score Rick Taylor, who had lashed a base hit and stolen second. That same tandem produced an ir'nnticfil Fayetteville run in the fifth. College Club tallied for tirj last time in the sixth on a walk, a Jackie Davis single, an Atha fly which moved Shelby Sizemore th third and an RBI grounder by Karnbach. The furious College Club offense abused losing pitcher Vincent West for 14 hits. Davis led the winners with three safeties; Porter, Stephens, Taylor and Osburn had two apiece. The tournament triumph was the reverse of College Club's last regular season loss, 7-3 to Van Buren. Then, coach Dick Harris' team, unused to falling behind, stalled in frustration. "We learned a lesson from the Van Buren game," Harris claimed after yesterday's win. "Today we didn't ever get down on ourselves. I probably got down more than the boys did." College Club will resume its effort to sweep the tournament on Thursday night at 6:30 against Siloam Springs.

(AP) -Arnold Palmer returns to the scene of his first victory - now almost 20 years back-and Tom Weiskopf returns to the site of last triumph, in this week's $200,000 Canadian Open Golf Tournament. Palmer and Weiskopf head a strong field of 150-almost all of them tour-toughened American stars-arrayed for the Thursday start in this national championship ttiatoffeisthewinner KuhnAsks Leagues For D.C Games MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Base- bail Commissioner Bowie Kuhn has asked the 24 major league teams to consider scheduling some of their home games in Washington next year, it wai reported Tuesday night. "The commissioner has requested all of us to coordinate a program to put some games in Washington," said Edmund B. Fitzgerald, chairman of the Milwaukee Brewers' executive committee. "Theoretically, it would be a joint league operation, anc teams from both leagues would play in Washington," he said. Fitzgerald, in Pittsburgh for the Ail-Star game, was inter viewed by the Milwaukee Sentl nel. The paper said a 20-game package was being considerec for next year for Washington which has been without major league baseball since the olc Senators moved to Arlington Tex., and became the Texas Rangers after the 1971 season. The report also said a group headed by Washington business man Joseph Danzansky, which had tried to buy the San Diego Padres last winter, has been asked to promote the Washing ton games. Danzansky ha refused, the paper said, saying his group wants a major leagu franchise of its own. Asked if the Brewers woul be willing to play some horn games in Washington, Fitzger aid said the club "will di anything we can to help solvi the Washington situation, bu we have certain constraints o our own County Stadium con tract." The Brewers' contract wit the county, which has 20 year to run, requires them to play home games in Mil 140,000 and a spot in the four- man field for the World Series f Golf. Only a handful of the name players are missing as the tour noves into its most lucrative iortion of the schedule.

Miller, the season's top winner with $204,000 in prize money ind five titles, remains a questionable starter on the eye of :he 72-hole event. His wife is expecting their third child momentarily. T h e 44-year-old Palmer scored the first of his 61 North American victories in the Canadian Open in 1955. Although he lasn't won in almost two years, he played some of his best golf of the period in his last three starts. Weiskopf is the defending champion.
