Twins sweep; gain tie for first

Staroba dealt
WASHINGTON - The Washington Redskins have acquired
wide receiver Paul Staroba from the Cleveland Browns for an
undisclosed draft choice, George Allen, Redskins head coach and
general manager, annasmced yesterday.
Staroba, two years out of Michigan, was originally drafted by
Cleveland in the third round 1971 National Football League col-
lege draft.
He spent most of the 1971 season on the Browns' taxi squad
and last year he caught the game-winning 19-yard touchdown
pass in the Browns' victory over Denver.
Potpourri
The Detroit Red Wings don't have trouble signing every-
body. Left winger Nick Libett signed a three-year contract yes-
terday for an undisclosed sum . . . Bobby Hull, who else?, was
named the WHA's Most Valuable Player . .. In a baseball trade
of dubious importance, the Texas Rangers acquired pitcher Jim
Bibby from the Cardinals for catcher-outfielder John Wocken-
fuss and hurler Mike Nagy.
Some stats
In some baseball' notes on a slow day, Bobby Bonds of the
Giants leads the major leagues in runs by 19 over his closest
competitor, 56-37 . . . Slugging John Mayberry paces the Ameri-
can League in runs with 37, runs batted in with 53, is tied for the
top spot in homers with 13, and ranks second in the AL in hits
behind teammate Amos Otis.

ARLINGTON -- Steve Kline,
riaking his first start since May
20 her- utse of stiffness in his
pitching elbon-, scattered nine
hits in pitching the New York
Yankees to a 5-2 victory over the
Texas Bangers last night. Kline
was aided by Sparky Lyle's
strong relief pitching and short-
stop Gene Michael's hidden ball
trick.
Kline, 4-5, pitched into the
eighth inning as the Yankees
won their f o u r t h consecutive
game. Lyle came on in the eighth
to snuff out a Texas rally and
tost his 11th save of the season.
Jim Merritt, 0-1, was the loser.
Michael ambushed Vic Harris
with the hidden ball trick for
the third out in the fifth inning,
cutting short a rally that pro-
duiced the Rangers' first run.
Harns was on second base fol-
lowing Harrah's sacrifice fly
when Michael pretended to throw
the ball to Kline. Harris stepped
off the bag and Michael tagged
him.
It was the fifth time Michael
had pulled the trick since com-
ing to the Yankees in 1968.
The Yanks also announced the
trade of Mike Kekich and his
9.20 ERA to the Atlanta Braves
in exchange for former 20-game

SununerDail

winner Pat Dobson.
Tribe. thrashed
CLEVELAND - Jim Holt slug-
ged two home runs and Steve
Braun added one in a 16-hit
attack that carried the Minnesota
Twins to a 13-9 victory over the
Cleveland Indians and a sweep of
a doubleheader.
A double error by shortstop
Frank Duffy enabled Larry Hisle
to score the tie-breaking run in
the 15th inning as the Twins de-
feated the Tribe 7-3 in the first
g a m e. The defeats extended
Cleveland's losing streak to seven
games.
Braun's three-run homer high-
lighted a six-run first inning in
the second game for Minnesota.
Holt hit a solo homer in the first
inning and a three-run shot in the

eighth, when the Twins scored
four times.
It turned out that the Twins
needed most of their runs be-
cause the Indians hit three
homers-one Oscar Gamble's sec-
ond of the game-in the bottom
of the ninth, when they scored
four runs.
Braves howl
MONTREAL - Darrell Evans
and Dave Johnson each hit two-
run homers and Phil Niekro and
Danny Frisella combined on a
four-hitter to lead the Atlanta
Braves to a 5-3 victory over the
Montreal Expos last night.
Johnson's two-run blast in the
eighth snapped a 3-3 tie for ioe
winning runs.
Chisox creamed
BALTIMORE-Brooks Robinson
and Earl Williams each homered
and Robinson and Al Bumbry
combined to drive in seven runs
as Baltimore's revived long-ball
attack powered the Orioles to a
14-4 victory over the slumping
Chicago White Sox last night.
The loss was the fifth straight
for the White Sox, whose lead in
the American League West was
shaved to t h r e e percentage
points over Minnesota.

Ervin's sluggers
edge White House

WASHINGTON (R) - In a test
of -strength and endurance, Sen.
Sam Ervin's assistants have
whipped the White House.
It was a squeaker though, with
the outcome 10-9.
It .happened on a softball field,
not at the Senate's Watergate in-
vestigation, headed by Ervin, a
North Carolina Democrat.
Sam Ervin's "Sluggers" even
accused the White House "AS-
SISTANTS" of a possible at-
tempted bribe. It seems the
White House coach, Richard
Erb, invited the Sluggers star
pitcher, Joyce Hanula, to . the
White House for a tour of the
Rose Garden and then lunch at

a posh restaurant.
"Frankly, with this game com-
ing up, we were worried," said
Sluggers coach Bill Pursley.
"It was all very nice, the tour
and the lunch," Mr. Hanula said
before taking the mound Tues-
day for what would be an event-
ual victory.
THE ONLY legal question that
arose - such as it was - was
when Ervin's Sluggers pushed
for a beer break and Erb warned
that it's "illegal to drink beer in
the park."
And Pursley replied: "You
White House guys are really
sharp on law and order.".
