Undated (AP) _ TOKYO (AP) - The Hanshin Tigers extended its Japanese League baseball winning streak to four by beating the Chunichi Dragons 6-3 Saturday.

Former Texas Ranger Randy Bass belted his Central League-leading 34th home run, a two-run shot, in the first inning, to help former Boston Red Sox pitcher Rich Gale earn his eighth victory against five losses.

Former minor leaguer Leon Lee hit a grand-slam home run, a three-run shot and then a two-run homer, his 19th, 20th and 21st homers, to power the Yokohama Taiyo Whales to a 17-5 victory over the Hiroshima Toyo Carp in Hiroshima.

Lee batted in another run in the seventh on a single for a total of 10 RBI in one game to set a Central League record for most RBI in a game. It surpassed the record of nine RBI held by Tomio Fujimura of the Hanshin Tigers in 1951.

The Pacific League and Japan record was set in 1951 with 11 RBI by Shigeya Iijima of the Daiei Stars, forerunner of the Lotte Orions.


MADRID, Spain (AP) - Britain’s Beverly Huke remained the leader after three rounds of the Ladies Classic Golf Tournament Saturday with a three-stroke lead.

Huke carded a par 73 for a 1-under-par 218 at the Club de Campo course. Australians Karen Lunn and Korinne Dibnah were tied for second at 221. Lunn had a 69 and Dibnah a 73.

WEMBLEY, England (AP) - League champion Everton beat Cup winner Manchester United 2-0 Saturday to win the Charity Shield, the traditional curtain raiser to the English League soccer season.

Trevor Steven and Adrian Heath scored for the winners before a crowd of 82,000.

With the eyes of the soccer world on Wembley for the first major English match since the May 29 Brussels riot, the match appeared to be trouble-free on the terraces, although police reported arrests before the match as fans traveled to the stadium.

Following the Brussels incident, in which 38 fans were killed during a cup final between Liverpool, Everton’s Merseyside rival, and Juventus of Italy, new regulations involving crowd control and sale of alcohol were introduced in England.

A special police squad was used to control the fans and no alcohol was available inside the stadium.

The game was a re-match of last season’s Football Association Cup final in which Manchester won 1-0.
