Graebner, Ashe head strong U.S. bid
as amateur upsets spark tennis play

By JEFF LISS
Special to. The Daily
DETROIT-The Tigers cut their
magic number to 13, and Denny
McLain sliced his magic number
*to 2 as the Bengals wiped the
Minnesota Twins 8-3 last night at
Tiger Stadium.
McLain allowed 8 hits and
struck out 12 batters to become
the first American League pitch-
er to win 28'games since Detroit's
Hal Newhouser won 29 in 1944.
He needs only two more wins to
become the first major leaguer to
win 30 games in one season in'
over 30 years. Southpaw Jim Kent

cessive singles and Al Kaline drove
McAuliffe home and Stanley to
third with a double to left. Willie
Horton followed Kaline by blast-
ing his 32nd homerun of the sea-
son far into the night and the
Tigers led 4-0.
Twin shortstop Greg Nettles
spoiled McLain's shutout bid early
by 'parking a second inning Mc-
Lain offering in a right field seat.
Right fielder Jim Northrup made
a valiant but vain leap for the
ball. ,
Tiger \ Manager Mayo Smith
added his own type of fireworks
in the top of the third when he
questioned a safe call on a Tiger
pickoff attempt at second base.
He argued long enough to earn
an ovation fro'm the crowd of
42,269, but not long enough to be
thumbed from the premises.
Detroit added two runs and
changed Kaat, in the fourth. Bill
Freehan opened with a single and
moved to second on Northrup's
safety to right. Both advanced a
base on Twin backstop John Rose-
borro's passed ball, and Freehan
trotted home with Northrup going
to third on Don Wert's single.
Minnesota Manager Cal Ermer
had seen enough of Kaat, so he
called for Dave Boswell as a fan
in the right field grandstand yell-
ed "that's it, Ermer. Bring in some
fresh meat." D i c k Tracewski
brought in the sixth Tiger run,
charged to Kaat, when he forced.
Wert at second, allowing Tracew-
ski to score.
The Twins registered twice in-
the fifth. Frank Quillici led off
with a triple and scored on Cesar
Tovar's third single of the night.
Tover went to second on Rich
Reese's single and scampered to
third as Horton misplayed. He
then scored on Rich Rollins'
double.
Horton drove in his fourth and
fifth runs of the night in the
home half of the seventh when he
doubled in Stanley and Kaline.
From that point, with a five run
cushion, McLain coasted the rest
of the way.

-Associated Press
CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN ORDER as Willie Horton got the Tigers off to a fast start with a
first inning homer. Horton slammed his thirty-second homerun of the season off Minnesota's Jim
Katt with Mickey Stanley and Al Kaline on board. The Tigers went on to win 8-3, and extended
their league lead to nine as Baltimore lost.$

FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (P) - A
chilling, all-day rain postponed
the ninth day's program yester-
day with Clark Graebner of New
York on the verge of completing
a surprising virtual amateur take-
over of the U.S. Open Tennis
Championships.
Two amateurs-America's Davis
Cup ace, Arthur Ashe, and Hol-
land's spectacular Tom Okker, al-
ready are out =to the men's semi-
finals and Graebner is only four
games away.
On the sidelines - beaten in a
wave of upsets-are such pro stars
as Rod Laver, Tony Roche, Roy
Emerson, Pancho Gonzales and,
Andres Gimeno. The amateurs
have grabbed the scalps of nine
men pros and three women pros
in the past week.
"The kids have come along fast-
er than anybody anticipated,"
said Jack Kramer, the onetime
king of the courts. Arthur Ashe is
the most 'improved player I've seen
in 'a long time.'He is young and
strong. So is Okker. Either is cap-
able of winning the title here. I
like Ashe."
Because of the rain, the sched-
ule which normally would have
been played yesterday moves to'
today, putting off the women's
singles final to tomorrow and the
men's final to Monday.
Today's program now begins
with the women's semifinal match
between top-seeded Billie Jean
King of Long Beach, Calif., and
Maria Bueno of Brazil.
The winner must meet Virginia
Wade, the pretty British amateur
who knocked off second-seeded
pro Ann, Haydon Jones in the
semifinals.

In the second match, Grabner
and John Newcombe of Australia
will complete their quarter-final
duel, which was halted by dark-
ness Thursday with Graebner,
Ashe's Davis Cup teammate, lead-
ing the fourth-seeded Aussie two
sets to one, 5-7, 11-9, 6-1, and the
score tied at 2-2 with no service
break in tho fourth.
Also on the card is the remain-
ing quarter-final duel between
third-seeded Ken Rosewall of
Australia, the tournament favor-
ite, and Dennis Ralston of Bakers-
field, Calif.
The semifinal pairing today
sends Ashe against the Graebner-
Newcombe winner, giving the
United States a better than 50-50
chance of having a man in the
finals.

Should Graebner and Ralston
come through, joining Ashe, it
would make the first time in 17
years .America has placed three
men in the semifinals.
Rosewall is the lone survivor of
the MacCall troupe which includes
such standouts as Gonzales, Laver,
Emerson and Gimeno. Newcombe
is the only man still alive from
Hunts so-called "H a n d s o m e
Eight," and he's on slippery
ground.
Okker, as a registered player,
has chosen to play for the $16,000
first prize, which he can take
under the relaxed international
rules.
The matches will be televised by
CBS 4-6 p.m. EDT today and 3-5
p.m. EDT tomorrow.

BALTIMORE (P)-Buddy Brad-
ford led off the 11th inning with
his fifth 'home run of the season,
Chicago's third solo shot of the
game, and the White Sox dealt
Baltimore's slim pennant hopes
another blow, edging the Orioles
3-2 last night.
The setback, Baltimore's sev-
enth in the last 10 games, dropped
the Orioles nine games behind
American League-leading Detroit,
which beat Minnesota.
Bradford connected with an op-
posite-field shot over the right
field fence against Pete Richert,
third Baltimore pitcher.
Gerry McNertney and Pete
Ward hit the other Chicago ho-
mers in the fifth and sixth in-
nings, against starter Jim Hardin.

ST. LOUIS (I)-Reliever Frank

Linzy extinguished St. Louis ral-
lies in both games last night and
San Francisco swept a twi-night
doubleheader from the Cardinals,
defeating Bob Gibhon 3-2 in the
opener and winning the nightcap
8-7 for Juan Marichal's 25th vic-
tory of the season.
Linzy rescued Bob Bolin in the
first game as the Giants tagged
Gibson with his second loss in his
last 20 starts.

The Giants had piled up a big
lead in the second game on a two-.
run double by Jim Hart in the
seventh inning and Willie Mays'
18th homer in the eighth.
The double loss kept St. Louis'
magic number for clinching the
National League pennant at nine.
Any combination of nine Cardinal
victories or San Francisco defeats
will wrap it up.

MONZA, Italy (R) - Two Unit-
ed States drivers were banned
Friday from Sunday's Grand Prix
of Italy Formula-One auto race
because they insisted on partici-
pting in the Hoosier hundred in
Indianapolis on Saturday.'
Organizers of the Grand Prix
said the ban on Mario Andretti
and Bob Unser was based on the
rule forbidding drivers to partici-
pate in any other race started less
than 24 hours before the Monza
start.
Andretti and Unser left by

plane for Indianapolis after Fri-
day's official trials with plans to
participate in Saturday's Hoosier
Hundred. In the trials Andretti
drove a Lotus-Ford and Unser a
BRM. Each qualified easily.
Their plans were to fly back
to Monza Saturday night and ar-
rive Sunday in time to participate
in the Grand Prix.
John Surtees of England, driv-
ing a Honda, turned in the day's
fastest time, spinning over the
3:5-mile flat course at an average
speed of 149.06 miles an hour. His
time was 1 minute, 26 seconds.
Graham Hill of Britain, was
second with 1:26.57 in his Lotus
Ford with Denis Hulme of New
