Canadian Professional Golfers Association senior title Sunday with an even-par 70 for a 54-hole total of 216 The 52-year-old host profes- sional at the Westbrook Golf Club in Welland, Ont beat 55 other competitors with rounds of 73-73-70 Second-round lead- ers Al Balding of Toronto and Bill Kerr of Pomte Claire, Que both had trouble off the tees on the Gait Country Club course Balding soared to a final- round 80 for sixth place with a 223 total Kerr had a 79 to finish in a fourth-place tie with Murray Tucker of Woodbndge, Ont, both with 222 totals Stan Kolar of Lucerne, Que had a

picked up Balding eliminated himself from a chance at the Spaldmg trophy with a triple bogey on the 361-yard seventh hole "When I got the tbirdie on nine, I knew I was in good shape Kozak said "I was aware Balding and Kerr were having real trouble "I figured I'd have to shoot a 69 today to win, but when I saw the pin placements on the first few holes I changed that estimate to a 71 and then just tried to play par golf Kozak, who has won the sen- iors in the only two years he's been eligible, was pleased with his victory but still a little disappointed with his play "I didn't putt that well I only made two really good putts in the whole tournament and they were both for birdies today, but they were also both less than 15 feet The Majesties led by the pitching of Ruth Miller and Marge Deker ran off four straight victories in the tourney Thev out scored the opposition 53 to 18 over the four games Hanna finished second in the 11 team tournament with the consolation going to Blairmore

the 10th inning Ron Peterson was the losing pitcher In a Northern Division playoff game Sunday night Julie Owchar hit a two run homer in the second inning to lead Edmonton Tigers to a 3-2 win over Red Deer Generals in a game that was called after five innings because of darkness Red Deer managed two runs in the bottom of the fifth on singles by Phil Boston and Gord Graves and an error by rightfielder Wayne Commodore But the Tigers got out of the jam when Red Deer shortstop Phil Urabe lined into a double play A solo home run by Tim Young in the fifth inning rounded out the Edmonton

single Winning pitcher Ray Forgie kept Jimmies to three hits John Fit7gerald took the loss THE CANADIAN PRESS Los Angeles outfielder Jim Wynn says the 10-3 thumping the Dodgers suffered Sunday at the hands of Pittsburgh Pirates may be just what his team needed The Pirate victory also came in handy for Cincinnati Reds in baseball's National League West pennant race While the Dodgers were suf- fering their sixth consecutive setback, the Reds were edging New York Mets 6-5 to climb within games of the first- place Dodgers The Dodgers' margin is their smallest since they led Houston by two games on May 9 and it's the closest the Reds have been since they trailed by three games way back on April 26 They were 10 Vz out as recently as mid-July Elsewhere, St Louis Cardi- nals downed San Francisco Giants 4-1, Philadelphia Phillies turned back Atlanta Braves 7-4, Houston Astros blanked Montreal Expos 3-0 and Chicago Cubs clobbered San Diego Padres 14-6 In Saturday's games, Pitts- burgh edged Los Angeles 4-3, San Diego shaded Chicago 4-3, Cincinnati whipped New York 62, St Louis downed Cincinnati 5-3, Atlanta nipped Philadelphia 7-6 and Montreal beat Houston 3-2 Maybe this is what we need Maybe getting our pants knocked off will get us Wynn theorized after the Pi- rates pounded out 17 hits, the most against the Dodgers this season, including home runs bv Bob Robertson and Richie Zisk The Dodgers have scored onlv 1 runs in their six-game slide- actually, they've dropped nine of the reason is clear to manager Walter Alston The only way I can explain it is that the same guys who have been leading the league in run production just aren't doing it any more, "he said "I kept telling you guys at the beginning of the season when everything was going right that there'd be days like this Sunday's assault against Geoff Zahn and three relievers also included two doubles by Robertson, one apiece by Zisk and Renme Stennett, a two-run single by Willie Stargell and seven-hit Meli and Greenway make team Two Lethbridge judokas Joe Meli and Tom Greenway, were selected to the Canadian National Judo Team over the weekend Meli will travel with the unit of the Canadian Team slated to appear in Brazil in September while Greenway's unit is scheduled to compete in Germany in November Both Meli and Greenway gold medal winners in the recent Canadian junior Olympics in Edmonton, were competing in a judo tournament in Toronto over the weekend Also competing in the Toronto meet was another Lethbridgeite, GuyPomahac Pomahac was also a gold medalist at Edmonton Greenway won the heavyweight champion ship at the Toronto tournament, held at the Canadian National Ex- hibition Grounds Meh was the winner of the light heavyweight title at the competition Pomahac, also a light heavyweight competitor in Toronto, placed third in his division Meli and Greenway were selected to the Canadian team on the strength of their performance in Toronto Royals take another The Lethbridge Royals travelled to Calgary over the weekend and bombed the Calgarv Chinooks 8-4 in a Calgary Senior Soccer Association contest Angelo Mauro and Stefan Wittmer led the local attack with a pair of goals each, while singles came off the feet of Billy Rab, John Stropmk, Ivan Smeljaned and Bill Calderwood The Royals took the third division title in the CSSA this year, and should have an excellent

Demery and Dave Giusti The Pirates, who have won 11 of their last 13 outings, are tied with Philadelphia for second place in the National League East, 2Vz games behind St Louis The Reds nailed down their triumph when Dave Concepcion blasted a tie- breaking three-run homer off Jon Matlack in the seventh inning following an in- tentional two-out walk to Tony Perez After Pete Rose opened the Reds' seventh with a bloop double, Mets' manager Yogi Berra ordered a two-out walk to Perez, who helped Cincinnati erase a 3-0 deficit with run-scoring singles in the third and fifth innings Concepcion promptly followed with a drive over the wall in left-centre for a 6-3 lead Cleon Jones slammed a two-run homer for New York in the ninth John Curtis pitched a five- hitter for the Cards' fourth straight victory and also singled home two sixth-inning runs off Tom Bradley Curtis restricted the Giants to one unearned run Bill Robinson, Mike Schmidt and Willie Montanez homered for Philadelphia in support of Dick Ruthven's six- hit pitching Milt May's two-run homer and Bob Watson's solo shot backed Dave Roberts' five-hit pitching Montreal's Tom Walker was cruising along with a two-hitter going into the seventh but Watson stroked a one-out single and May smashed a 3-2 pitch over the right field fence Pitcher Steve Stone's two- run single highlighted Chicago's six-run third inning and Steve Swisher and Jose Cardenal homered for the Cubs Tiant backs into 19th win THE CANADIAN PRESS Although Luis Tiant didn't exactly pitch well enough to win his 19th game, he did get the victory Steve Busby did pitch well enough for his 19th win but got a loss instead Tiant was tagged for 11 hits in 7 1-3 innings Sunday and sent packing when Minnesota Twins scored six runs in the eighth inning of their American League baseball game By then, though, Boston had given the veteran right-hander an eight-run cushion So the Red Sox held on for a 9-6 triumph and Tiant became the only pitcher in the major leagues with 19 victories Busby, meanwhile, pitched a six-hitter against but the fifth hit was Paul Blair's double in the ninth inning and the sixth was Brooks Robinson s single So instead of getting victory No 19, Busby wound up with his 10th defeat as the Orioles squeezed out a 1-0 victory over Kansas Citv Royals Chicago's Wilbur Wood also had a shot at No 19 But he took an early shower and a 14th loss when the White Sox absorbed a 94 beating by New York Yankees In Sunday's other American League games, Texas Rangers nosed out Cleveland Indians 1-0, Oakland A's clobbered
