BOSTON (AP) - Amos Otis

home run, and Hal McRae belted a
two-run homer Tuesday night,
powering the Kansas City Royals to
an 8-4 victory over the Boston Red
Sox.
Otis belted his seventh homer in
the second, tripled in the fourth,
walked in the sixth and set up a run
with a single in the seventh. He
scored-three runs and drove in one.
MCRAE LINED his sixth homer
into the center field bleachers in the
third after Willie Wilson blooped his
second single of the game.
Otis' triple off the center field wall
and U. L. Washington's single
knocked out Boston starter Steve
Renko in the fourth. The Royals ad-
ded two more runs on Frank White's
bases-loaded double off Wim Rem-
merswaal and another tally on
Willie Aikens' RBI single off Skip
Lockwood in the seventh.
Right-hander Rich Gale, making
his first start since suffering
shoulder tendinitis on July 2, worked
81/3 innings, allowingseven hits, in-
cluding a .two-run homer by Dwight
Evans. Gale, who lost his first five
games this -year, improved his
record to 6-7 with his sixth victory in
his last eight decisions.
Boston's Carl Yastrzeinski, who
had three singles, became the 10th
player in major league history to at-
tain 5,000 total bases with a second-
inning single.
Mets 9, Braves 2
ATLANTA (AP) - Steve Henderson

this late date in the season for the first
time in four years.
IT WAS THE Mets' 15th victory in 2
games and lifted their record to 42-42,
the best since a 61-61 mark on Aug. 19,
1976. The Mets were last at the .500
mark on April 16, six games into the

suicide squeeze bunt scored Ron
Jackson from third base in the eighth
inning to give the Minnesota Twins and
Jerry Koosman a 5-4 victory over the

his legs. Dave Edwards singled
Jackson home.

bottom of the seventh, his fifth of the

EUGENE, Ore. (AP)-The National
Collegiate Athletic Association has
begun a preliminary investigation into
the University of Oregon's athletic
scandal, a. Eugene newspaper said
Tuesday.
The Register-Guard said both univer-
sity and NCAA officials had confirmed
the preliminary inquiry, in which the
NCAA determines whether a full-scale
investigation is warranted.
If the preliminary probe progresses
into a full inquiry, it could be-six mon-
ths to a year before the process is com--
pleted, an NCAA spokesman said.
Ray Hawk, the university's vice
president for finance and ad-
ministration,. acknowledged that the
university's recently received official
notification an investigation had begun.
He said NCAA investigators had been
on campus, though he had not talked
with them.
Telephone fraud and secret travel
agency accounts- are two subjec-
ts-along with other issues-currently
being investigated by a Lane County
grand jury.
So far the grand jury has returned
nine indictments. They charged seven
football players with theft of telephone

services and two former assistant
basketball coaches of first degree theft
in connection with a secret travel agen-
cy account.
Seven University of Oregan football
players, including first-string quarter-
back Reggie Ogburn, also were recen-
tly declared ineligible for receiving
"extra benefits" prohibited by NCAA
rules-airline tickets from the travel
agency where a secret account was
located.
The university intends to appeal to
the NCAA for restoration of the player-
s' eligibility before the season begins.
The preliminary probe is apparently
the first the NCAA has conducted
against the University of Oregon in any
form, university officials said.
