Yanks clobber Senators,
Dodgers slip past Reds.

season opens

in

earnest

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The New
York Yankees romped past Wash-
ington 8-4 yesterday to ruin Ted
Williams' debut as manager in
the annual American L e a g u e
opener before President Nixon.
Newcomers Jerry Kenney and
Bobby Murcer slammed consecu-
tive home runs as New York raced
to an early 8-0 lead. Murcer added
a two-run single to cap the Yank-
ees' scoring in the fourth inning
when they scored four unearned
runs.
Nixon chatted and joked with
Williams in the Presidential box
before throwing out the first ball
--a soft lob-to begin baseball's
100th year.
Mel Stottlemyre, the Yankee's
21-game winner last year, took
over from Nixon, allowing 14 hits
but keeping the Senators shackled
until the game was out of reach.
Frank Howard walloped a two-run
homer for Washington in the
ninth.
Williams emerged from the dug-
out just once for an angry but
futile argument with umpires over
a dropsped pop fly in the midst of
the Yankees' fourth-inning out-
burst.
Two errors, a -dropped throw
at the plate and a wild pitch fig-
ured in the comedy of miscues as
the Yankees pushed across their
four runs on only two siigles.
Three stolen bases-two of them
by Roy White-led to the Yankees'

first two runs on only two singles
in the second inning.
Kenney, the rookie who took
the retired Mickey Mantle's place
in the lineup, cracked a bases-
empty homer off losing pitcher
Camilo Pascual in the third.
Murcer followed with a line-hug-
ging shot just inside the right
field foul pole.
A record opening day crowd of
45,113 watched the game in newly
renamed Robert F. Kennedy Sta-
dium.
CINCINNATI ' Ron Fairly's
two-run triple in the third inning
helped the Las Angeles' Dodgers
spoil the opening of Cincinnati's
101st baseball season yesterday
with a 3-2 triumph over the Reds.
Fairly's triple down the right
field line overcame successive first-
inning homers by Pete Rose and
Bob Tolan and a 12-strikeout per-
formance by Gary Nolan.
Although Don Drysdale left in
the seventh, giving way to Bill
Singer when his arm tightened, he
was the winning pitcher.
Rose and Tolan excited a full
house of 30,111 fans who turned
out in 70-degree temperature for
the historic occasion.
Nolan bowed out to Wayne
Granger in the eighth when the
Dodgers threatened again with
men on first and third and none
out. Jim Merrit pitched the ninth.
The Reds' start could have been
enough to shellshock Drysdale and

CINCINNATI'S PETE ROSE executes a perfect shoestring tackle in thewrong sport yesterday, as he
upsets Los Angeles shortstop Ted Sizemore in the eighth inning. Rose was forced at second as
Sizemore got tle ball away toward first base. Rose plowed into the hapless shortstop to stop the
double play. His heroics proved fruitless, however, as the Dodgers posted a 3-2 victory.

Tigers hope
to reverse
spring flop
DETROIT (A)- Denny McLain;
sore shoulder and all, was sched-
uled to start the season for the
Detroit Tigers today against the
Cleveland Indians a 1 t h o u g h
whether he will stride up to the
mound was still in doubt as game
time neared.
The ,31-game winner last sea-
son came back to Detroit with
an ailing shoulder Friday. Per-
sitent pain and soreness in his
right shoulder required a corti-
sone shot and he returned to 'the
doctors at Ford Hospital Monday.,
McLain worked out with thex
team after his trip to the doctor.
If he is unable to start for the
Tigers, the team which wound up
with a 9-17 record in exhibition
games, they plan other moves.
However, backup man Mickey
Lolich said he felt "just about
right." In 23 exhibition innings,
Lolich achieved a 2.35 earned run
average-easily the best perform-
ance on the team.
The World Champion Tigers,
will need a strong performance
today before a possible capacityJ
audience of 54,220.
Other spring training signs on
the team were not too bright. Al
Kaline, starting his 17th major
league season, was the only Tiger
to bat over .300. The right fielder
ran his spring average to .327.
And shortstop Mickey Stanley is
favoring a sore arm.;
The Indians may be tough in
the opener. Cleveland starter
LuisTiant posted a 1.6 ERA last
season for the American League's
best mark since the legendary
Walter Johnson in 1919. Manager
Alvin Dark made some changes
in the lineup, and is leading one
of the better rated teams.
And he is not overwhelmed with
facing the World Series winners.
"Baltimore, Boston and Detroit
are all so good I can't favor just
one," he said. "Of the three I like
Detroit least.".

park.
After the two-game-starting
home runs, Drysdale allowed only
two more hits until he was relieved
by Singer. Rose's homer hit the
left field screen and Tolan's went
deep into the right field bleachers.
Despite his string of strikeouts,,
Nolan got into trouble as early as
the second inning when he gave(

run-scoring double by Jim Le-
febvre.

ATLANTA - The Atlanta Brav-
es rallied for two runs in the
ninth inning to nip the San Fran-
cisco Giants, 5-4, spoiling Clyde
King's debut as Giant manager.
Clete Boyer's single, Sonny
Jackson's triple, and a single by
Mike Lum gave the Braves their
first opening day victory since
their arrival in Atlanta. T h e
ninth inning surge wiped out a
three-run San Francisco rally in
the seventh and gave George

Stone the victory over the Giants'
ace reliever, Frank Linzy.
Dick Dietz' homer off Atlanta's
Pat Jarvis staked 28-game win-
ner Juan Marichal to a 1-0 lead
in the second. But the Braves tied
it in their half as Tito Francona
singled and eventually scored
when Jackson hit into a force play
with the bases loaded.
They went ahead 3-1 in the
third on a walk to Aaron and
singles by Orlando Cepeda, Fran-
Faona and Boyer.
The Giants struck for their
