blasted his 19th home run of
the baseball season with two
runners aboard and two out in
theninth inning after an error
kept Detroit alive and the Ti-
gers, held to one one until the
ninth, beat Milwaukee 3-2 in
the opener of a twi-night dou-
ble-header Thursday.
Bill Parsons, 8-8 was breezing
along on a 1-0 lead and a one-
hitter-a fourth-inning triple by
Aurelio Rodriguez-until third
baseman Mike Ferraro booted
Rodriguez' slow hopper with
one out in the ninth. After Jim
Northrup struck out, Willie
Horton singled and Cash hom-
ered into the right field bleach-
ers for three unearned runs.
The Brewers took a 1-0 lead
against 17-game winner Mickey
Lolich in the first on a single
by Dave May and a triple by
Tommie Reynolds. L o 1 i c h
allowed five hits before leaving
in the eighth for a pinch hitter.
In the second game Eddie
Brinkman's two-run, tie-break-
ing single in the eighth inning
highlighted a four-run uprising
that hoisted the Detroit Tigers
o an 8-5 victory over the Mil-
waukee Brewers.

McCraw melts 'em
belted a two-run pinch-homer
in the ninth inning last night
to boost the Cleveland Indians
to a 4-3 victory over the Balti-
more Orioles.
Pat Dobson, 12-9, gave up a
one-out single to Frank Duffy,
then McCraw, batting for win-
ning reliever Phil Hennigan, 1-
1, unloaded his third homer of
the season over the right field
The Orioles had pullesd ahead
3-2 in the seventh inning on
B o o g Powell's bases-loaded
single off Henningan.
Cleveland jumped on Dobson
in the first_ inning, singles by
Del Unser and Jack Brohamer
and a walk loading the bases in
the first inning. John Lowen-
stein delivered two runs with a
two-out single.
While Dobson was wriggling
out of jams in the middle in-
nings, the Orioles were tying it
with single runs in the third
and sixth innings.
Don Buford tripled in the
third and scored on Grich's
sacrifice fly. Don Baylor was
hit by a pitch in the sixth, stole
second and scored on Brooks
Robinson's single.
Murcer moders 'em
NEW YORK--Johnny Calli-
son and Bobby Murcer smacked
home runs and winning pitcher
Fritz Peterson started a two-
run rally with a fifth-inning
single as the New York Yankees
defeated the Boston Red Sox 6-2
in an American League baseball
game last night.
With the Red Sox ahead 2-1
on a fourth-inning tie-breaking
homer by ex-Yankee Danny Ca-
ter, Peterson opened the fifth
with a single and Horace
Clarke singled off the glove of
shortstop Juan Beniquez.
The runners advanced when
losing pitcher Marty Pattin, 8-9,
tried to pick Peterson off sec-
ond and his throw hit Peterson
on the leg and rolled away. The
tying run scored on Thurman
Munson's bloop single and Mur-

cer's sacrifice fly put New York
in front 3-2.
Callison, who drove in the
Yankees' first run with a sec-
ond-inning single, homered in
the sixth and Murcer hit his
15th home run of the season in
the seventh off Bill Lee follow-
ing a double by Munson.
Magic Number Box
Surprise, sporting enthusiasts.
Today it's your turn. You can
help the Tigers and win valu-
able prizes, like a lock of Don
Wert's hair. All you have to do
is to write on a piece of legal
size paper, the Tigers' magic
number and send it to The
Daily before Guy Fawkes Day.
Hurry, time is running out.
Hint: it's bigger than a
breadbox and smaller than the
Grand Canyon.
Allen axes 'em
CHICAGO--Dick Allen smash-
ed two home runs and Ed
Herrmann drove in two runs
with a single to lead the Chi-
cago White Sox and Wilbur
Wood to a 7-3 victory over the
Kansas City Royals Thursday
in the first game of an Ameri-
can League twi-night double-
Wood, 16-10, fell behind 2-0
before retiring a man as Fred
Batek opened the game with a
single and scored on Steve Hov-
ley's second homer of the sea-
The Sox ited it in the bottom
of the second on a single by
Carlos May, a double by Ed
Espiezio and Herrmann's single.
Allen smashed a two-run
homer in the third off Paul
Splittorff, 9-6, to break the tie,
then added No. 24 in the sev-
enth inning.
It was the third time Allen
has hit two homers in one
game this baseball season and
gave him one more than the 23
he hit all last year with the
Los Angeles Dodgers.
The White Sox added two
runs in the eighth inning on
bases-loaded grounders by Jay
Johnstone and May.

STORMIN' NORMAN, who made a great stop of a screaming
foul in the All Star game, is looping home after a long home run
which won the game. Norm doesn't know the MAGIC NUMBER,
can you help him. Exciting contest rules in the box to the right.

CINCINNATI - Johnny Bench

sive two-run docbles in the first
inning as Cincinnati's streaking
Reds coasted to an 8-2 victory

jumped on Steve Arlin, 8-12, for
all their first-inning runs before
a man was out.
Ben bares
no bodkin
w From Wire Service Reports
Ben Davidson, the massive
mustachioed defensive end of
the Oakland Raiders, has de-
cided to bare some of that
famous brawn. Choosing a San
Francisco skin flick entitled,
"The Green Door," Davidson has
become a start, a veritable cine-
However, in the skin flick
tradition, Davidson's part is a
come-on, a teaser for the audi-
ence. Rather than removing any
of his outer garments, Davidson
will appear fully clothed.
Made by San _ Francisco's
Mitchell Brothers, pornogra-
phers supreme, "The Green
Door" centers around, what one
brother terms, "an old erotic
tale in which a pretty woman
s kidnapped and taken to a
specal nightclub where rich
guests pay to witness sexual
In the end, the audience,
collective Ids showing, becomes
part of the group grope and
takes part in an orgy that one
reviewer says,' "would make a
fourth-down goaline pile-up
look tame."
Davidson who is married and
has three female progeny got
$500 to play the part of the
club's bouncer. He wears a
tuxedo throughout.
Davidson, w h o s e 1 o n g
drooping mustache gives him
an air of an English lord or a
vampire, claimed he did it as
a lark, "When they called me,
I thought it might be interest-
ing, so I thought it over and
talked it over with my wife.
His wife, termed an open
women, had no objection and
the portly, muscular man be-
came a sex star.
Next week Davidson opens
camp with the Raiders and at
the Bejou Theatre.

the Pittsburgh Pirates yester-
day in the first game of a twi-
night doubleheader.
Cleon Jones started the Mets'

then came home on Garrett's fly

ed to a scoreless tie through
nine innings, each working out
of a bases-loaded jam.
The left-handed Matlack, who
allowed only three hits through
eight, faced his biggest test in
the Pirate seventh,
Al Oliver opened with a pop
fly to center that Met second
baseman Garrett let drop for a
two-base error.

An intentional walk to Manny
Sanguillen followed by an unin-
tentional walk to Bob Robertson
loaded the bases with one out.
However, Bill Mazeroski lined
out to center and Gene Alley

Devaney, who will start
skilled Jerry Tagge at quarter-
back, has another Cornhusker,
Van Brownson, as a backup.
Devaney is the firsthcollege
head coach to pilot the All-
Stars since Maryland's Jim Ta-
tum took a 31-0 thumping from
the Detroit Lions in 1954.
Notre Dame's Frank Leahy
led the collegians to a 16=0
blanking of the Chicago Bears

Ratterman's deadly passing to
swift Buddy Young of Illinois

Even Cowboy Coach Tom
Landry, who sent his bristling
Dallas squad through a noctur-
nal dress rehearsal at Soldier
Field Thursday night, concedes
the Cornhusker "family" as-
pect of the All-Stars is not to
be taken lightly.
Devaney has brought in his
entire Cornhusker staff of as-
sistants, plus a half-dozen 1971
Nebraska stars headed by
quarterbacks Tagge and Brown-
son, running back Jeff Kinney
and defensive lineman Larry
"That's going to make the
All-Stars tough to beat," said
Landry, whose Cowboys will
field virtually the same pow-
erhouse which whipped the
Miami Dolphins 24-3 in the
Super Bowl.
