Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 8, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Mon., \pril 8. 1974 Winning Ball Bob Charles smiled and flashed the ball he used to win the Greater Greensboro Open golf tournament Sunday with a 270 total, 14 under par. Jackson Belts 2 Homers, Drives in 7 (Continued from Page ll.) Bv Frank Brown Associated Press Sports Writer Reggie Jackson won’t be able to hit in Texas again until August 6. But if the Oakland A’s could play there all the time and add one Rangers player to their lineup, Jackson says the American League West title would nearly be wrapped up by then. The outspoken A’s outfielder bid a fond farewell to Arlington Stadium with his second and third home runs of the season and seven runs batted in in Oakland's 8-4    triumph over the 'Rangers. He finished the American League baseball season’s opening series with seven hits in 13 at bats, eight runs batted in, two doubles and a .538 batting average. In other    American League games Sunday, the California Angels and Chicago White Sox were tied 4-4 after IO innings when snow postponed their contest: the New York Yankees bombed the    Cleveland Indians 7-1; the Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers split a double-header—the    Orioles won the opener 5-1 and the Tigers took the second 8-4 in IO innings. The Boston Red Sox and Milwaukee Brewers game was rained out, as was the Minnesota Twins-Kansas City Royals contest. Jackson could well have added to those impressive statistics had Ferguson Jenkins not one-hit the A’s Saturday night. “If we had him on our staff,” said Jackson, “we could all go home by Aug. 15.” RALEIGH, N.C.(AP) — classmen, say the attention is Jackson continues his North Carolina State’s basket- wearing them down.    Texas-style    hitting, Oakland Wolfpack Exhausted, Behind in Studies Two More his 1969 PCA triumph, was tied, with Charles and playing in the same threesome.
