Harry Sullins Wins Fifth PBA Title

Fourth-seeded Harry Sullins has now "hit for the cycle" and won titles on TV with one game, two, three, and now four games in the $135,000 Tums Classic at Bradley Bowl. He stormed past four opponents to earn his fifth PBA championship. Sullins, Ann Arbor, Mich., capped his run against leading qualifier Jess Stayrook, Tempe, Ariz., 24&203, for the $23,000 first prize.

Sullins averaged better than 230 for his four games and started the title match with a strike and two spares. Stayrook spared twice and struck to pull within one pin after three frames, but then opened in his fourth. Sullins then started to pull away by stringing six consecutive strikes starting in the sixth frame and coasted home. It was the first check in six weeks for Sullins and his first win in more than two years.

In the first game of the ABC telecast, Sullins downed first-time finalist Bob Belmont of Dunedin, Fla., 269-172. Next up was 1986 PBA Player of the Year and newly-elected Hall of Farther Voss, who never got untracked and fell, 206-160. In the semifinal game, Sullins escaped against 1991 PBA Rookie of the Year Ricky Ward of N. Fort Myers, Fla., 203-201.

Stayrook collected $12,500 as runnerup, Ward earned $8,000 for third place, Voss received $6,000 and Belmont $5,000.

Kicking off tournament week was an entertaining "Family Feud" exhibition pitting Dick and Pete Weber against localfavorites Larry Lichstein and son Michael, who was to eventually finish in 17th place as an amateur. The Lichsteinstopped the Webers' two-game doubles total, 1,000-951, and then enjoyed taking part in a "roast" of Dick Weber. Therelated events totaled more than $7,500 toward Newington (Conn.) Children's Hospital, a Children's Miracle Network(CMN)-affiliated hospital. CMN is PBA's official char'".
