Seattle Open



$125,000 SEATTLE OPEN
Skyway Park Bowl, Seattle, Wash., May 15-19, 1990

Warren Strikes Seattle

The smallest player on the PBA Tour Is making the biggest impression lately, and Chris Warren of Dallas added to his yearly money-leading total with his second PBA championship in the $125,000 Seattle Open at Skyway Park Bowl. Warren, Dallas, topped leading qualifier Brian Voss, Boca Raton, Fla., 224-213, and pocketed the $18,000 first prize.

In a bizarre finish, Warren overcame a ninth-frame errant shot which ended in the right-hand channel, but closed with three clutch strikes to shut out Voss, a former Seattle resident.

Both finalists opened with four-baggers and Warren tacked on a fifth strike. Voss then stranded the 4-6-7 and took out only the 4-pin with his spare ball. He earned $9,500 for his 11th career second-place finish.

In the opening game, Bill Oakes of Dallas defeated Wayne Webb, Beaumont, Texas, 204-192. Oakes then rolled past Mike Edwards, Tulsa, Okla., 256-217, before falling to Warren, 247-156.
