nant yesterday, downing Kansas
City 6-1, while second place De-
troit dropped the opener of a
doubleheader to California, 5-3.
The Tigers won the second game
7-0 ,but cannot overtake the Ori-
oles even if they win all their re-
maining games.
Frank Robinson contributed two
. doubles and a single to the Orioles'
victory as Jim Palmer pitched a
five hitter.

Going into last night's action,
Robinson led the league in all
three major hitting categories. His
batting average of .313 is five
percentage points better than that
of Minnesota's Tony Oliva, and his
49 homers and 118 RBI's are far
and away the best in the league.
If Robinson can win the triple
crown, he will be the first Amer-
ican League player to turn the7
trick since Mickey Mantle did it
in 1956.
Robinson also has a strong claim
for the Most Valuable Player
Award ,and if he wins that, will
become the first player in history
to capture such honors in both
leagues.
Before moving to Baltimore to
become the Orioles in 1953, the
old St. Louis Browns won the jun-
ior circuit pennant only once, in
1944. The Browns' then proceeded
to succumb to their crosstown riv-
als, the Cardinals, in the World
SSeries.

race, first place Los Angeles and

White Sox downed the New York
Yankees 4-1 and the Chicago Cubs
pounced on Cincinnati, 7-2.
Rookie Jay Johnstone collected
four hits in leading the Angels to
the first game victory. In the
night cap, Johnny Podres pitched'
a five hitter and doubled in two
runs for the Bengals.
