drove a 1-0 pitch over the right-center field fence for
his ninth home run of the season.

Biggs stops Payne in boxing trials

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - World
champions Tyrell Biggs, a super
heavyweight, and Pernell Whitaker,
132, made the U.S. Olympic boxing
team yesterday with narrow decision
victories, but 178-pound world cham-
pion Ricky Womack was beaten and
will miss the Summer Games at Los
Angeles.
Biggs, of Philadelphia, scored a 3-2
decision over Craig Payne of Livonia,
Mich., while Whitaker, of Norfolk, Va.,
outpointed Joe Belinc of Marysville,
Wash., 3-2. Biggs and Whitaker both
won titles at the Olympic Trials in June,
but needed victories yesterday to make
the team because they had lost Friday
night.
WOMACK, A Trials winner from
Detroit, lost a 4-1 decision to Evander
Holyfield of Atlanta. Holyfield had out-
pointed Womack 4-1 Friday night.
Others who made the team yesterday
were Meldrick Taylor of Philadelphia,
125; Jerry Page of Columbus, Ohio, 139;
and Virgil Hill of Williston-Grand
Forks N.D., 165.
Two world champions Mark Breland
of Brooklyn, N.Y., at 147, and Frank
Tate, 156, of Detroit made the team
Friday night.
BUT ANOTHER world champion,
Floyd Favors of Capital Heights, Md.,
failed to make the team when he was
knocked down twice and stopped in the
third round by Trials winner Robert
Shannon of Edmonds, Wash., in the 119-
pound bout.
Also making the team Friday night
were Trials winners Paul Gonzales, Los
Angeles, 106; Steve McCrory, Detroit,
112; and Henry Tillman, Los Angeles,
201.
Holyfield used a good jab and ac-
curate head punching to beat Womack
and make the Olympics.
It also was a left jab which paid off
for Biggs, who had lost a 4-1 decision to
Payne Friday night. Payne scored
some hard head shots early in each
round, but Biggs controlled the fight by
scoring often with hard jabs.

Norman leads
Western Open
OAK BROOK, Ill. (AP) - Greg Nor-
man, the long-hitting Australian who
has dominated the PGA Tour in recent
weeks, overcame a slow start and shot
a one-under-par 71 to take a one-stroke =.
lead yesterday in the third round of the
$400,000 Western Open Golf Tour-
nament.
Norman, the man known as the
"Great White Shark," finished three
trips over the Butler Naitonal Golf Club
course in 209, seven shots under par.
"I'M A CONFIDENCE player," said
Norman. "When I win a golf tour-
nament I get more relaxed, maybe 10
percent more relaxed. Once I get that
confidence, I feel I can do anything with
a golf ball. And that's the way things
are going right now."
Norman, who has collected more
than 30 titles around the world, has won
twice in his last four starts, including
last week in the Canadian Open, and, in
the same period, lost a playoff for the
U.S. Open title and finished 10th in
Atlanta. In those four starts, he's won
more than $200,000. -
Spitting champ repeats
DETROIT (UPI) - World record
holder and defending champion Rick
Krause yesterday used the "curl-
tongue technique" to win the 11th an-
nual International Cherry Spitting Con-
test with an imposing 56-feet-i-inch
spit.
Krause, of Eau Claire, Mich. where
the contest is held, failed to beat his
own 65-feet-2-inches 1980 Guinness
World Record, but easily outspat
second-place winner Phil Douce, of
Berrien Springs, Mich., who shot his pit
50 feet 9 inches.
"I WENT WITH the 'curl-tongue
technique' this year," said Krause, 30,
a coach and teacher at Eau Claire High
School who said he likes eating
cherries.

The "Curl-tongue technique" in-
volves rolling the sides of the tongue in-
to a tunnel to shoot the pit, while a spit-
ter using the "roll-tongue technique"
must roll the.tongue back to use it as a

catapult, Krause said.
Krause, who used the latter method
to set his world record, said he switches
his tactics back and forth each time he
spits.
