Birds, Tribe win,
gain on Red Sox

By The Associated Press
BALTIMORE - Earl Wil-
liams and Paul Blair socked
solo, home runs in support of
Mike Cuellar's six-hit pitching
and the Baltimore left-hander
beat the Chicago White Sox 2-1
last night for his first victory
since July 20.
The Orioles failed in the third
to score after loading the bases
with one out, but Williams con-
nected for his ninth homer of
the baseball season in the
fourth and Blair slammed his
13th an inning later off loser
Jim Kaat, 13-10.
Cuellar, 14-9, ending a three-
game losing streak, struck out
a personal season high of ten,
including Dick Allen three
times. He yielded a run in the
seventh on two walks and a
single by Buddy Bradford.
CLEVELAND - F r a n k
Duffy's two - out, bases-loaded
single provided two runs and
Gaylord Perry gained his 16th
victory as the Cleveland In-
dians defeated the Minnesota
Twins 4-2 in American League
baseball last night.
Perry, 16-7, who won 15 con-
secutive games earlier this sea-
son but has been trying to get
No. 16 since July 3, allowed
five hits.
The Indians took a 1-0 lead in
the third inning when Tom

McCraw scored on a fielder's
choice. The Twins tied the
game in the fourth when Tony
Oliva hit his 11th home run of
the season.
THE INDIANS went ahead
3-1 in the sixth inning, John
Ellis doubled with two oats.
Minnnesota starter Bert Blylev.
en, 11-14, then walked Oscar
Gamble and McCraw to load the
bases.
Duffy then lined a single to
left, scoring Ellis and Gamble.
The Indians scored an insur-
ance run in the eighth inning on
McCraw's sacrifice fly.
Danny Thompson's double
down the right field line in the
seventh gave the Twins their
second run.
Jim Betts is
academic aid
Jim Betts, former University
of Michigan quarterback who
lost most of his sight in one
eye due to a swimming acci-
dent, has been hired as an ath-
letic counselor by the Wolver-
ines.
Betts, backup quarterback to
Don Morehead in 1969 and
starting safety in 1970, will di-
rect academic counseling and
tutoring service for all athletes
and serve as a liaison between
coaches, athletes and university
academic personnel.
Betts, 24, of Cleveland, was
drafted by the New York Jets
of the National Football League
in 1971, but his eye injury end-
ed his potential pro career. A
whistle around his neck hit him
in the eye in a poolside acci-
dent, causing the loss of vision.
