Mickey Staley, who opened
the Tiger third with a home run
off loser Steve Busby, 7-10, drove
in the first Detroit run in the
fourth inning with a single after
singles by Norm Cash and Ed
Brinkman. Then designated hit-
ter Brown unloaded his homer.
McAuliffe's homer in the sixth
came after a walk to Frank
Howard and a run-scoring single
by Sims.

Kaat, 10-9, retired the first 10
Then, Matty Alou grounded a
routine bouncer toward first
base. But the ball took a bad
hop, bouncing over Joe Lis' head,
and went down the right field line
for a double.
The next batter, Roy White,
ripped a vicious liner at Lis,
who speared the ball for the out,
then threw to shortstop Jerry
Terrell to double Alou off second.
That double play started an-
other streak as Kaat retired the
next 10 New York batters until
Alou doubled cleanly down the
right field line in the seventh.
Stottlemyre, 12-8, who set an
American League record with his
242nd consecutive start, gave up
a first inning run on Bobby Dar-
win's RBI single.
Minnesota scored the game's
final runs in the third. Rod Carew
drew a one-out walk before Oliva
unloaded his eighth homer of the
Stubbed Cubs
CHICAGO-Dave Roberts drove
in three runs wihh a two-run
homer in the fourth and a tie-
breaking solo homer in the
seventh to help the San Diego
Padres defeat the Chicago Cubs
8-5 yesterday.
The Padres also ended their
five-year winless streak against
veteran right-hander Ferguson
Jenkins and sent the Cubs down
to their sixth straight loss.
Robers' second homer came
after Chicago's Jim Hickman
slammed a two-run homer in a
three-run sixth which pulled the
Cubs into a 5-5 tie.
Jenkins, who also yielded a
solo homer to Nate Colbert in
the sixth and now has served
up 28 home runs this season, had
defeated San Diego 13 straight
times since the Padres joined
the National League in 1969.
The winner was Clay Kirby,
6-10, who hurled hitless ball -un-
til Billy Williams' fourth-inning
triple scored Rick Monday, who
had walked. Hickman's sacrifice
fly scored Williams to trim San
Diego's lead to 4-2.
The Cubs, who have dropped
12 of their last 16 games, also
lost the services indefinitely of

National League All-Star third
baseman Ron Santo in a fourth-
inning mishap at first base. Santo
suffered a left hip injury on a
tag play and-had to be carried
from the field on a stretcher.

BOSTON - T o m m y Harper
slammed a three-rin homer and
Reggie Smith added a solo blast,
powering Bill Lee and the Bos-
ton Red Sox to a 6-1 victory over
the Chicago White Sox yesterday.
The Red Sox got to Steve Stone,
4-7, in the third inning when
Harper reuched first on an error
and scored on Luis Aparicio's
triple. Orlando Cepeda's single
knocked it the second run.
Harper put the game out of
reach in the fourth, following a
walk and a single with his
seventh homer, fourth in a week,
into the left field screen.
The White Sox spoiled Lee's
shutout bid in the fifth when
Hank Allen doubled, moved up
on a ground out ani scored on
John Jeter's sacrifice fly.
Smith got that run back in the
fifth, belting his 11th homer of
the year into the right field
Lee, 12-3, pitched an eight-hit-
ter, striking out two and walking

ST. LOUIS - Gary Matthews
stroked a two-run homer and a
run-scoring double last night,
leading the San Francisco Giants
to a 8-3 victory over the St. Louis
The loss, which snapped a five-
game St. Louis winning streak,
left the Cards in second place in
the National League East Divi-
sion, one-half game behind the
Chicago Cubs.
San Francisco scored twice in
the second inning off Rick Wise,
11-5, taking advantage of an error
by Cardinal shortstop Mike Ty-
After singles by Mike Phillips
and Dave Rader, Bobby Bonds
reached first when Tyson let his
grounder go through him for an
error, one run scoring on the
play. Tito Fuentes followed with
a run-scoring single.

Grid dope
In the good old days of sports,
football started when the weather
was ready for the sport, now it
starts when the weather is hot
nand reruns are rampant. Yester-
day was such a football news
All-pro defensive tackle Bob
Lilly, despite his pleasure with
his contract, announced his re-
tirement from the game. Lilly
thus became the third veteran
Cowboy to leave football this
year. No sweet home on the
range for those Cowpokes!
. In other Cowboy grid news,
the Green Bay Packers and the
Dallas football club have been
unable to agree upon the proper
value of disgruntled Cowboy sig-
nal caller Craig Morton whom
the Packers have been trying to
acquire on a modified waiver
. D u a n e Thomas, football's
prodigal son and possibly class-
iest running back, meandered in-
to the training camp of his
present employers, the San Diego
Chargers. Charger coach Har-
land Svare, who had threatened
action a g a i n s t the moody
Thomas, greeted the running
1h back with semi-open arms.
1 Larry B r o w n apparently
wants an agreement on a multi-
year contract beginning with
1974, after his current three year
pact ends. In effect, Brown is
holding out one year in advance,
much to the chagrin of Redskin
owner Edward Bennet Williams,
who has refused to even consider
negotiations with Brown.

All-Star flashes
The All-Star pitching staffs for
the two major leagues were
named yesterday and there were
really no surprises, unless you
think an American League re-
liever on the squad is a surprise.
Nolan "You can't hit what you
can't see" Ryan and Bill "That's
pretty Wet Stuff," Singer of the
California Angels, Jim Hunter,
Rollie Fingers and Ken Holtzman
of the A's, Sparky Lyle of the
,Yanks, Bert Blyleven of Minne--
sota and Jim Colburn of Mil-
waukee comprise the staff. Wil-
bur Wood, Chicago's iron
knuckleballer was asked but de-
clined because his son faces min-
or surgery.
The National League staff in-
cludes Dodgers Jim Brewer,
Claude Osteen, and Don Sutton,
Tom Seaver of the Mets, Rick
Wise of the Cards, Wayne Twit-
chell of Philadelphia and Dave
Guisti of the Pirates.
In other All-Star news, the
Dodgers jumped the Friday em-
bargo by announcing that out-
fielders Manny Mota and Willie
Davis were named to the squad
by skipper Sparky Anderson.

NEW YORK - Walter Ken-

Association's Commissioner, an-

jitters set in yesterday on the
eve of the 21st U. S. Women's
Open Golf Championship for
most of the 147 golfers set to tee
off today.
Even the oldtimers, such as
Betsy Rawls and Amie Amizich,
said it was early to bed for them.
It was the same for rookie

three weeks won a total of $3,-

Baugh said, adding that she
would be in bed before then.
"I need about 10 hours sleep, a

She and the other pros and
amateurs will play on the par

R a w Ils, now 45, won the
second of her four Open crowns.
"I have no idea what I did
the night before that Open,"
she said. "To night I'll have din-
ner, read a bit and turn in."
R a w 1 s, who said she was
hitting the ball well, declined to
forecast who might win the
four-day event. She said, how-

the title."
