Tigers edge Twis;
Reds down Phillies

By The Associated Press
Mickey Lolich, fighting off a
virus and Harmon Killebrew's
two-run homer, picked up his
10th victory when the Detroit
Tigers squeezed in a seventh
inning run to down the Minnesota
Twins 3-2 last night.
The Tigers won Lolich's five-
hitter when Eddie Brinkman
raced home from third base on
a suicide squeeze hunt by Au-
relio Rodriguez with one out.
Brinkman started the wtnning
rally with a, leadoff single,
moved to second on Lolich's
sacrifice and to third on Dick
McAuliffe's single.
Magic Number: 106
With. Slick Mick turning the
trick last night the Tigers slic-
ed into that old magical num-
ber for the first time in a few
days. Pretty soon it'll shrink to
only two digits and from then
on it should be just a waltz
Killebrew's 442- foot smash,
following a fourth-inning leadoff
single by Rod, Carew, was his
seventh of the season and 522nd
of his career. It moved him past
Ted Williams into te No. 6 spot
among all-time home run hitters
and 12 behind No. 5 Jimmy Fox.
Lolich, who struck out nine to
regain the American League
strikeout lead with 94 for the
season, has been bothered by a
flu virus the lastfew days.
Gates Brown drove in two
Detroit runs, with a sacrifice fly
in the first after a triple by
Rodriguez and a single in the
fifth after a .059-hitter Lolish
blooped a hit to right and later
lumbered in from second.
Phils benched
CINCINNATI - Johnny Bench
drove in both Cincinnati runs
with a homer and sacrifice fly
as the sizzling Reds edged Phila-
delphia 2-1 last night for their
seventh consecutive victory and
26th 4 their last 32 games.
Cincinnati took a 1-0 lead in
the first inning when Joe Morgan
drew his 41st walk of the sea-
son, took third on Bobby Tolan's
single and came home on
Bench's short fly ball to center.
Bench's long homer made it

homer and 47th run batted in,
both tops in the majors.
The Phils closed the gap to
2-1 in the seventh when Willie
Montanez led off with a double
and scored on a single by Tom-
my Hutton.
Jack Billingham, 4-6, retired
the first 13 Phillies before Hut-
ton singled. He needed help from

W.Va. (R)-Commissioner Walter
Kennedy of the National Basket-
ball Association said yesterday
that a proposed merger with the
American Basketball Association
"would be impossible to com-
plete before next season."
But, he added, it could happen
before the next draft of college
players, which takes place an-
nually after each pro season.
"I think it will be possible to
get the merger passed through
Congress despite opposition from
the players' association," he
The merger bill, which has
been stymied in a Senate sub-
committee since last September
and been bitterly opposed by
subcommittee chairman S e n.
Sam J. Ervin Jr. (D-N.C.), also
has met strong disapproval from
the NBA Players Association,

sees no merger soon

headed by Oscar Robertson of
the Milwaukee Bucks.
'There has been no question
that through their opposition the
players' association has caused a
delay," said Kennedy on the
eve of the NBA Board of Gov-
ernors meetings in this plush
resort area. "But I believe that
both congressional bodies will
approve the bill without the play-
ers' approval."
Merger will be one of the ma-

of the reasons they are fighting
the proposed merger.
Other items on the agenda in-
clude possible action against the
players who participated in the
