Little League title
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa--A no-hitter and a one-hitter Thurs-
day sent Tainan City, Taiwan, and Tucson, Ariz., into the
finals of the Little League World Series.
Taiwan, winner of the world title the past two years,
broke four series batting marks while demolishing Tampa,
Fla., 27-0, as righthander Kuo Wen-li pitched the team's
second no-hitter of the series.
IN THE NIGHTCAP, Tucson southpaw Ed Vosberg
blanked Birmingham, Mich., 12-0, yielding only a single

Taiwan and Tucson meet Saturday afternoon in the finals
Birmingham's second baseman, Scott Currie, spoiled
Vosberg's no-hit bid in the last inning with a one-out long
drive to left field. Vosberg had a perfect game until yield-
ing a walk in the fourth inning. He struck out 11 and
CENTERFIELDER Tony Bravo and first baseman Mike
Fimbers led the Tucson 13-hit attack with three hits apiece.
Shortstop Mike Martinez had a double and a home run.
Kuo Wen-li pitched a six inning no-hitter, striking out 14
including the last 8 batters he faced. The only Tampa
batter to reach base was second baseman Marlon Jones,
who walked in the first inning and took second on a balk.

of four in one game. The record for runs in one game (22)

TORONTO-Apparently stung by the publicity gains the WHA
made with the signing of Gordie Howe's two hockey playing
progeny, the NHL has struck back, appointing a six-man com-
mittee to formulate plans to sign amateur players 18 and 19
years of age. Craddle-robbing of this sort was prohibited by a
contract the NHL signed with the Canadian Amateur Hockey
Association. Needless to say, the contract has run out and the
.NHL is going to escalate the already hot bidding war.

the harrowing experience of be-

team the night before.
"We had the game with the

boys hadn't slept.well. They were
nervous, not up to par."

a United States-Russia double-

to the Russians in the opening
game, bounced back to win five

the tall, strong Soviet women
who dominate the female game.
FOR THE FIRST time the
United States outscored the Rus-

golds, two silver and two bronze

With only one day of competi-

The present American team is
rated by many as better than
the Olympic squad. Although
very young, averaging only 19
years and with several college
sophomores playing, the team
is unbeaten in 22 games.
