Fresno Open



$47,000 FRESNO OPEN
Cedar Lanes, Fresno, Calif., Jul 5-8, 1974

Earl Keeps Streaking

The superb effort put forth by Earl Anthony continued unabated at Cedar Lanes as he won the $47,000 Fresno Open for his second straight win and fourth in sic tournaments.

Anthony's closest competitor was Dave Davis as he piled up a more-than-200-pin margin over the rest of the field in waltzing to his 11th victory since re-joining the tour in 1970.

There were three perfect games. Anthony had one, had another thrown against him by Paul Kreins, and little Marty Piraino had the third.
