Slderowf and Barr had 210, Boh Wylie of Calgary was alone with 21! and three others were tied for filth at 212. Roxburgh and Barr, both 20- year-old college sludcnls, broke the record which slood since JfXift when professional Wayne Vollmer of Vancouver fired a C8 in the Alberta Open. Barr was giving a total effort on Ihe 18th green when an even lower score was riding on a 15- foot putt for o birdie. He slid Ihc ball three feet past the cup then made the little pressure shot for the record. Barr's, round was a 12-stroke improvement on Thursday's.

One of those he mulled gave him his lone over-par hole, that was when he under-cluhhed an approach shot to tho green and ended up in a sand trap. Ho went under-par eight times and missed another chance on tho 17th hole after his 300-yard-plus drive set up a short pitch to the grenn. But lie couldn't put the ball any closer than 30 feet from the pin and two-putted for a par. Roxburgh said his play was Inconsistent, despite his score, and his putting was "streaky."

ISPORTS FANSI I BET YOU DIDN'T 1 KNOW Tigers drop from top By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Baltimore Orioles took over first place ]n the American league Enst Division Friday night but Detroit Tiger man- ager Billy Martin warned them not lo figure on holding down that lofty peak for too long. "Tell 'em it's only temporary and tell 'em not to get used to said Martin. "Tell em we'll be back." Martin exuded confidence Thursday night despite a 5-1 loss lo Cleveland Indians that dropped his Tigers mil o( the top spot for the first time since July 10. The Orioles moved in by a haK-game after beating Boston Red Sox 2-1. "licing in second doesn't feel any different than heing in first." said Martin. If Martin hopes to find room at the top once more, he'll have to reverse a losing trend Hint has bad the Tigers by the tail of late. They've lost nine of their last 12 games. New York Yankees, another Ihroat in thai wild division, were hpalen -1-2 by Milwaukee Brewers ami dropped gomes tehiurl the Orioles. In the West.

"Just pretend It's me on the Atlanta's Eddie Math- ews told Jim Breazealc, "and pull your normal stunt." So the rookie p-inch-hitter did just that. Employing what has become virtually his trademark this season, Brcazeale jumped on Clay Carroll's first pilch for a Ihree-nm homer. That triggered a five-run eighth inning which powered Ihe Braves to a 7-5 victory over Cincinnati Reds. Elsewhere in the National League, Pillsburgli Pirates beat St. Louis Cardinals 10-5, Houston Astros defeated San Francisco Giants 6-3, Montreal Expos Mopped Philadelphia Phillies 4-1, Chicago Cubs d nibbed New York Wets 7-2 and Los Angeles Dodgers slipped past San Diego Padres 2-1 tn 10 Innings.

Richie Hebner of Uie Pirates hatted in the cleanup position In place of Willie Stargell, who sat out the game against the Cardinals due to a recent tooth extraction. And Ifebner picked up where Etargell left off, slugging a pair of homers. The Pirates widened their lead in the East to games over the Mels.
