whipped Calgary 12-5 in their tourney opener Monday and then followed with a 2 0 win over Moose Jaw and a 5-2 decision over Edmonton Tuesday On the other hand, Moose Jaw, who needed back-to-back victories over Lethbridge to win the playoff series reached the finals by defeating Edmonton 3 1 in the B final Wednesday night In the championship final Thursday Moose Jaw jumped to a solid 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but the locals got right back into the ball game by rallying for a pair of runs of their own in the bot- tom half of the frame Moose Jaw failed to muster up an offen sive attack in their half of the second frame and their defensive corps collapsed in the bottom half of the inning allowing the locals to produce five big runs Moose Jaw made a valiant effort to come back with a single run in the third inning and two more in the fourth but the damage had already been done Lance Gilchust earned the mound deci sion going the distance for Lethbridge while John Dzurka

East baseball championship race all figured out The Phillies moved to within one-half game of first place St Louis Thursday night nipping Chicago 2-1 for Traffic jam at the top CLEMMONS N C (AP) Ten years ago golfer Sam Snead said that because Jack Nicklaus started to play golf so young he will burn himself out before he's 30 This prediction came home to roost for the 62-year-old veteran as Snead and Nicklaus found themselves tied at 69, just one stroke off the pace go- ing into today's second round of the 56th PGA golf cham- pionship Nicklaus not onlv has not burned himself out, but has amassed 14 major titles and, at 34 appears only to be getting his second wind in the game And Snead himself is still a masterful shotmaker and a PGA title threat after 84 tour victories and 40 years on the professional circuit I guess it all depends on whether you can keep on lik- ing the said Snead I m still playing because I keep at it I love the game You ve got to say the same for Jack Three men were tied at two- under-par 68 Snead and Nick- laus bunched with four others at 69 and 10 bracketed at even- par three shots blan- keting 19 competitors The tournament leaders at 68 are Ray Floyd

day before said Ozark Forget about the other guvs Just keep winning Eventually we 11 get to where we re supposed to be That seems to be exactly the strategy being employed by the hard charging Pittsburgh Pirates who moved to within 3'z games of the top by defeating New York Mets 4 3 Elsewhere Montreal Expos trimmed St Louis Cardinals 3-2 in 13 innings and Atlanta Braves shut out Houston Astros 1-0 Philadelphia s victory was the fourth straight and fifth in six games for the second place Phillies who kept the pressure on first-place St Louis Ron Schueler of the Phillies and Chicago s Bill Bonham were tied at 1-1 in the seventh inning when Mike Anderson walked stole second and reached third on a wild pitch Then with two out Dave Cash bounced a grounder up the middle that hit the seam of the artificial infield and skipped past shortstop Don Kessmger for the winning hit The Phillies got their first run in the second inning and it came on a bases-loaded walk to Schueler Chicago
