BOSTON - Ken Harrelsont
drove in four runs with a homer,
triple and double as Boston broke
loose from a week long batting
last night behind the steady
pitching of Jose Santiago."
The victory enabled the Red
Sox to maintain their slim grip
on first place in the American
League pennant race and pushed
the fourth-place White Sox 2%1
games off the pace.
Harrelson belted a two-run
triple in the first innings and the
Red Sox jumped on ace White
Sox left-hander Gary Peters for
seven runs in the first two frames
to sew up the decision early.
The lanky outfielder, signed by
Boston last week after being re-
leased by Kansas City, hit his
11th homer with none on in the
fifth and drove in another run
with a double in the seventh.
The Red Sox, who had been
averaging only slightly better
than 12 runs per nine innings
for the past week and were held
to two hits Thursday night, be-
labored three Chicago pitchers
for 13 hits.
Santiago, 8-4, giving his third
straight strong performance in a
late-season emergency as one of
Boston's .top starters, allowed only
one Chicago runner past first
base until the eighth when Ron
Hansen's single, rookie Ed Her-
mann's double and singles by
Tommie Agee and Don Buford
produced the White Sox runs.

The Cubs won the opener 8-2
as Ferguson Jenkins recorded his
17th victory. Ron Swoboda and
Bob Johnson homered for the
only Mets' runs.
Cardwell, who had been on the
disabled list with a sore arm,
picked up his first victory as a
starting pitcher since May 26.
He had won one game in relief
since then. His won-lost record is

ALL THE ACTION may be in the American League this year, but you can't prove it here. NL um-
pire Frank Dezelan seems to be dancing a jig in yesterday's Chicago Cub-New York Met double-
header as Cub Larry Beckert takes third. Actually, Dezelan is trying to avoid a wild throw-in
which is skipping past his leg after eluding third-baseman Jerry Buchek. Cubs won, 8-2, but dropped
the nightcap, 3-0.

Not only would it not take
much to bring the rest of the
league up to the leaders, but the
leaders have been doing' every-
thing possible to bring themselves
down to the rest of the league.
The Chicago White Sox went
through almost the whole season
with a great pitching staff and no
hitting. And then what happened?
They "outsmarted" the rest of
the league by picking up Rocky
Colavito and Ken Boyer for pract-
ically nothing. The two elder
statesmen did all right for a while,
but when last seen Chicago was
in fourth place.
In 1960 these same Sox defend-
ing American League champions,
"assured" themselves of a repeat
title by picking up Roy Sievers
and Minnie Minoso for "throw-
ins" plus money.

everybody else. Boston picked up

Ron Hanssen from Chicago, Jim
Landis from Detroit after Detroit

the bid for Ken Harrelson,
Charles Finley's gift.
A New Team
Detroit took, Eddie Mathews
from Houston, besides Landis, and
also grabbed ex-Red Sock Lenny
Green from the minors and Don
Demeter from the Red Sox., They
also brought back Gates Brown
and Johnny Podres from the dis-
abled list, as well as catcher Bill
Heath and infielder Tom Mat-
chick from the minors. Don Wert
is also back.
Is anything left out? A few
days vacation in Montreal and
the whole league could have been
All this gives the rest of the
league a clear mandate. Un-re-
