The victory was the eighth straight for the Nationals and was the sixth win in as many extra-inning duels in the long series. Pete Rose scored the winning run in a jarring collision at the plate with Ray Fosse that sent the Cleveland Indian catcher to a hospital with a shoulder in- jury and left the Cincinnati Reds' flash nursing a painful Charley horse. Pittsburgh Pirates' Roberto Clemente, castigated for sug- gesting he might pass up the game because of a pain in the neck, showed up, played and capped the Nationals' tying three-run rally in the ninth with a sacrifice fly. Baltimore's Dave' Johnson, hobbled by a damaged knee, la- bored through eight innings at second base for the Americans on the hot and hard Astroturf that blankets the Reds' new Riverfront Stadium. OSTEEN STRONG Southpaw Claude Osteen of Los Angeles Dodgers, who had worked eight innings three days earlier, got into the game as a pinch runner in the NL ninth and wound up pitching three scoreless frames to earn the victory. President Nixon, who joined the crowd shortly before game time, stayed to the finish. So did Hank Aaron of Atlanta Braves, Willie Mays of San Francisco Giants, Frank Robinson of Bal- timore Orioles and all the su- perstars who were out of their line-ups after the early innings. The only drop-out was busty Morganna. Roberts, an exotic dancer and compulsive player- kisser, who made a promised foray onto the playing field in the first inning and was promptly hauled off to jail. Jim Hickman of Chicago Cubs and Billy Grabarkewitz of Los Angeles, two of the NL's top hit- ters who were overlooked in the fans' first balloting for starting spots in 13 years, shared the spotlight with Rose in the cli- mactic 12th. Rose stroked a single with two out in the 12th and took sec- ond on Grabarkewitz's single. Hickman then lined a single to centre and Rose barreled into Fosse before toeing the plate. HAD TO PUSH "It was a bang-bang play" said National League manager Gil Hodges of New York Mets. "It took someone like Pete to bull his way in there." The Ail-Star game has been the setting for crippling injuries to several top players in past years, but Rose plays every game this same way. "B I can change the score, I'm not going to worry about getting he said. Boston's Carl Yastrzemski, named the game's most valua- ble player after cracking four Hits to tie the all-star mark, de- livered a run-scoring single in Hie sixth, giving the AL a 1-0 lead. Fosse contributed a run-pro- ducing sacrifice fly in the sev- enth and Brooks Robinson, Bal- timore's 14-year-all-star fixture, drilled a two-run triple in the eighth. Trailing 4-1 in the ninth, the favored Nationals finally ex ploded. San Francisco catcher Dick Dietz provided the spark with a Icadoff homer. Singles by Bud Harrelson of New York, Joe Morgan of Houston Astros Zasadny Throws One-Hitter In Commercial Men's Fast- ball, Lethbridge Hotel picked up a 9-5 win over the RCMP while Ron Zasadny threw a one hitter to lead the Contractors to a- 7-0 shutout against the Nu- Mode Homes. The Lethbridge Hotel was led by Bob Sapsford on the mound who picked up the win against Frank Popson of the RCMP. Bill Jackson paced the Hotel with a double and a single while Garth Renyk and Bill Harbuz both connected for two singles apiece. Frank Popson poked out two singles in a losing cause. Ron Zasadny threw the third strike past 10 batters to pick up the shutout against the Nu- Mode Homes. Arie Konynenbelt did not have as much success taking the loss. For the Contractors Don Diet- zen led the winners at the plate With a double and two singles. Zasadny aided his own cause rapping out two singles. Jerry Heck was the one who spoiled Zasadny's no hitter by joking out a single in the third and1 Willie McCovey of San Francisco 'brought home an- other run and Clemente tied it with a long fly to centre. Osteen then held the AL at bay until his team-mates broke through again in the 12th at the expense of Clyde Wright, Cali- fornia Angels' no-hit left-han- der. Francis Finds Them SEATTLE (AP) Anyone in search of a National Hockey League franchise might well fol- low Emile Francis as he locates New York Rangers farm clubs. "We're thinking of asking a finder's Fraivcis quipped Tuesday as he chatted with re- porters; He was pointing out that the NHL seems to grow everywhere the Rangers farm. "We were in Minneapolis five years and they were among the first to be picked ia the first ex- league facility right now-Seat- said ttie Ranger gen- eral manager. "Then we were in Vancouver amd Buffalo after that. Both those teams were added in the latest expansion." Seattle? "I thank you have a major league facility here all the way. If you look at tine four cities mentioned for possible expan- sion, only one has a major Fees Change At Henderson There should be a lot more people taking advantage of Henderson Lake Golf Club for the remainder of the golf sea- son. At a regular meeting of the board of directors of the Lake Layout Monday evening the members voted to revise the current membership fees as well as the green fees. The following temporary adjustments were made: An adult male will now pay while an adult female will be charged A man and wife combination has been set at while for a re- stricted junior the cost is Intermediate and non-re- stricted juniors will pay while seniors will be charged A social mem- bership has been set at while a family can golf for All of these reductions are In effect as of today, July 15 and will be in effect until the end of the 1970 golf season. Also, during this period, a green fee will be In effect after 3 p.m. on weekends and holidays. The aforementi oned changes have been submitted to the city of Lethbridge for approval. The proposal can't very well miss as they are a reduction of better than 50 per cent. tie." Frar.cis said Four cities mentioned by NHL president Clarence Campbell shortly after the league's recent meeting in Montreal were Dal- Atlanta and Kansas City in addition to Seattle. Seattle Totems, twice Western League champions in recent years, have signed a working agreement with the Rangers. Murray Costello, former Bos- ton Bruin star and now execu- tive director of the Totems, said he expects "seme big money would step forward" if he NHL indicates interest in Seattle going big time in (he next league expansion. Costello said it's possible the present Coliseum seating capac- ity of could be raised to ar.d he thinks the 'city has one big advantage if the NHL expands in 1973 or 1975.
