By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS To beat Vida Blue of Oakland Athletics it seems you've got to be just about perfect. And for six innings, Me] Slottlemyre of New York Yankees was. The Yankees' big right-hander was absolutely perfect for 3 2-3 innings Tuesday night in Oak- land and was still thinking no- hitter going into the seventh. He had to settle for a three- hitter, though, while Blue, his dreams of a 30-victory season shattered, was saddled with his second successive four-hit. 1-fl loss. Gary Peters and Boston Red Sox did it to him only last Friday night. "Where is Stot- tlemyre iiiused as he stood vir- tually alone in front of his locker after the victory, his 13th in 24 decisions. Most of Ihe writers, it turned out, were clustered around Blue in the Athletics' clubhouse. "Oh, Mel sighed. "I guess it's more rare for me to win a game than it is for him to lose one." The defeat was only the sixth for Oakland's 22-game wuiner. In other America League games. Ballimore Orioles' Mike Stottlemyre, meanwhile, cut down the Athlel'rs in order until Reggie Jackson drew a two-out walk in the fourth. But it wasn't until the seventh that Rick Monday broke the spell with a leadoff bunt single and when Dave Duncan also heat out a bunt, Mel's victory was in jeopardy. But a forccout and Larry Brown's doubleplay grounder killed Oakland's only serious threat. "I'm not Blue said. "It would have been nice to win I would have had to win all of my remaining eight starts including this one. "I'm satisfied with the game I he said. "1 just didn't win." ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCO!

The format calls for man- to-man competition over 10 holes with winners to be deter- mined on tlie basis of total strokes for the round, rather than on a hole-by-hole basis as in pure match play. FINAL ON SUNDAY Single rounds of 18 holes each are scheduled today through Friday with half the field being eliminated each day. Two quarter-finals and scheduled Sat- urday with the survivors meet- ing in Sunday's IB-hole final. The field is made up of all Lour event winners from the last 12 months, plus the leaders of the official point list to a total of H. Amour missing, who were eligible, are Lee Trevino, Billy Casper and Jerry McGee. Trev- ino. the American, Canadian and British Open titlcholdcr, and McGee are recovering from surgery. Casper, the 1970 PGA player of the year, is ill. N i c k I a u s, winner of four events including the national PGA championship, is in the No. 1 position on the basis of his standing atop the official point list. He's the season's leading money winner at Jenkins beaten Reds like top hurlers CHICAGO CAP) "IL- scoms like our hitters try n liLUe hit harder against the fined said manager Kparky Andor.son of I ho, re- surging Cincinnmi Hrd.s. They sure did, will) profita- ble results Tuesday ulim (he Rods edged ChienRo Cubs JH with n 12-hiL cannonading of 20-gnmc winner F e r g u s o n Jenkins, a native of Chatham Ont. Jenkins, now 20-10, was jos- tled especially by Pcto Rose, who slashed three rlMihfrs and scored Ihrro limes, by Worirly Woodward with a two-bugger" and a pair of singles, and by Hal McRac, who punched a pair of run-producing singles. Jenkins, wiio hopes to make his fifth consecutive 20-viclory hriiMjr liia most impressive, Jipparonlly can't, top his 22- win peak of by pitching ngninst the Heels. The towering Cub right-han- der hasn't beaten the Reds .since Sept. 2, when he won B-2. True, Jenkins by some quirk of rotation or oth- erwise, has only faced the Jipfl.-i in lu'o ktting ibis ;iinl only one in 1970. ''1 don't know why I have pitched so seldom against Cin- said Jenkins, who slit! has an 8-6 career wlge over the Reds. "But whatever the reason, watching them from Ihe bench doesn't help yon when it comes lo a hcacl- lo-hend ronteM." Jenkins, whose forte is con- trol, couldn't keep his pitches down against the Reds Tues- day, That's why Ihe Reds banged him for 12 hils and a lead before Jenkins left for a pinch-hitter in the seventh.
