Blazing Brewers bombard .Billy's Bengals

By The Associated Press
DETROIT - The Milwau-
kee Brewers 'pounded out an
18-hit barrage with George
Scott collecting a home run
and two singles and trounced
the Detroit Tigers 13-1 in an
American League last night.
Milwaukee starter Jim Lon-
borg collected his 10th baseball
victory of the season as well as
three singles.
The thumping was the second
straight the Brewers handed
the Tigers. They beat Detroit
9-0 Tuesday night in a six-inn-
ing, rain-shortened game.
The Brewers chased Tiger
starter Joe Coleman in the
third inning with a seven-run
rally, then pelted Detroit re-
lief pitchers throughout the
game.
The Tigers scored their lone
run in the fifth on rookie John
Knox's double, Dick McAuliffe's
single and Gates Brown's sacri-

BALTIMORE (P)-The Balti-
more Bullets announced yester-
day that superstar Elvin Hayes
had been signed to a five-year
contract with the National Bas-
ketball Association team.
Agreement was reached in
Houston last week, heading off
a federal court hearing on a
petition filed by the Bullets
after Hayes was obtained in a
trade which sent Jack Martin to
the Houston Rockets.
With Hayes seeking to re-
negotiate the remaining- six
years of a 10-year contract,
Baltimore asked the court to
uphold the old agreement.
The Bullets also sought an in-
junction that would have pre-
vented Hayes from playing or
negotiating with any other pro-
fessional team until the con-
tract expired.
The court petition said Hayes
sought more money while alleg-
ing a 10-year, $1.07 million con-
tract originally signed with San
Diego was based on "fraud and
undue influence."
The contract also called for
an annual bonus up to $15,000
based on the team's perform-
ance.
Terms of the new agreement
were not disclosed.
During Hayes' four seasons
in the league, he has scored
more points than any other
player and is second in re-
bounds, to his new teammate'
Wes Unseld. Last season, he
averaged 25.2 points and . 14.6
rebounds per game.

CLEVELAND - Chris Chais-

and Milke Kilkenny provided
sparkling relief pitching as the
Cleveland Indians stopped the
Baltimore Orioles 6-3 and
gained a split of their twinight
baseball doubleheader yester-
day.

My goodness! Remember just
a couple of short months ago
when the fatalistic figure was
well up over 100. And now it's
but half that, nearly. Those
beautiful Bengals have it in the
bag!
The Orioles won the opener
of the American League twin
bill 7-0 as Jim Palmer pitched
a four-hitter and Boog Pos-
ell, Bobby Grich and Johnny
Oates hit home runs.
Chambliss delivered his hom-
er in the third inning of the
second game to give the Indians
a 5-2 lead. Kilkenny came in to
stop a Baltimore rally in the
fourth inning, when the Ori-
oles scored their final run, and
held them scoreless the rest of
the way.

BIRMINGHAM, Mich. - A
steady drizzle turned into a
downpour yesterday afternoon
and put an early end to final
practice rounds for the PGA
championship at Oakland Hills
Country Club. The heavy rains
left the course in questionable
condition for the start of regu-
lation play today.
After playing a rain-short-
ened thirteen holes, Arnold
Palmer said that the rain would
definitely have an adverse ef-
fect on the course. "Many of
the greens are under water, and
standing water in the fairways
may keep them from being cut
till Friday," Palmer told report-
ers yesterday.

Red Sox beat the New York
Yankees 7-4 and gained a split
of a day-night American League
doubleheader.
Bobby Murcer hit a three-run
homer and Steve Kline won his
11th game in the Yankees' 5-1
victory over the Red Sox in the
day game.
The Red Sox had gone into
the inning trailing 3-2. Tommy x
Harper drew a leadoff walk,
then stole second. After an in-
field out, Danny Cater drove in
Harper with a single. Reggie
Smith followed with a single to
drive New York starter Mike
Kekich from the mound.
Fred Beene relieved and wild
pitched the runners to second
and third before walking Rico a

out before Oglivie doubled in two

threw wild on Bob Montgomery's
grounder to score Petrocelli.

ning, including two on Deron

Seaver, 12-9, had a 3-2 lead

ALLITERATION RECORD

The longer fairways will make
accurate approach shots much
more difficult. Palmer said
that, with the course in its pre-
sent condition, 280 will now be-
come an extremely good four-
round total.
With the weather and course
conditions making Oakland
Hills that much harder to mas-
ter, one of the most select fields
in golf history is set to! tee off
today. At stake is $200,000 in
prize money, $40,000 of which
will go to the winner.
Unlike most tour events, the
PGA does not offer qualifying
rounds open to any amateur or
professional player. Entrance is
limited to players who meet one
of several strict requirements.
One hundred and forty one
contestants will play today and
tomorrow, with the low 70 and
ties making the cut to play
Saturday and Sunday.
This year's PGA marks the
sixth tour event to be played
at Oakland Hills. The U. S.
Open was played here in 1924,
1937, 1951, and 1961. In 1964,
the Carling World Open, offer-
ing the richest purse of any
tournament up to that time,
was also hosted by the storied
golf club.
Defending champion, Jack
Nicklaus, who has chalked up
over $186,000 in tournament
winnings so far this year, is
telling anybody who will listen
that it is his lack of prepara-
tion rather than an infected

finger that will hinder his
chances of successfully repeat-
ing. Nicklaus' consistent excel-
lent play over the last three
days however, has led observ-
ers to discount his own pessi-
mism.
Golf's big names always seem
to give the major tournaments
a little extra and as usual, the
established stars will head the
list of favorites and draw the
biggest galleries. But, applying
constant pressure to the men at
the top, is a group of talented
young pros determined to make
it big on the tour.
Heading the list of rising
stars is 25 year-old Jerry Heard.
Heard is currently the third
leading money winner on the
circuit with $118,194 to date. He
has two victories to his credit
this year; capturing the Flori-
da Citrus Open and the Co-
lonial Open titles,
Heard said yesterday that he
has been playing rather poorly
in recent weeks, but still ex-
pressed confidence in putting
his game together in time to
win the PGA. "Having a cou-
ple of wins under your belt
makes it a lot easier going into
the big one", said Heard.
ANOTHER youngster to watch
is Grier Jones, the 1968 NCAA
champ from Wichita, Kansas.
