Birds bang Brewers

By The Associated Press
MILWAUKEE-Mark Belanger
drilled a tie-breaking two-run
double in the sixth inning to
carry the Baltimore Orioles to a
5-2 victory over the Milwaukee
Brewers last night.
The victory, only the Orioles
third in the last 10 baseball
games, enabled them to cut idle
Detroit's lead in the American
League East .to two games.
Dave May's single, a walk
and Ollie Brown's single gave
the Brewers a first-inning run but
Brooks Robinson tied it for
Baltimore in the second with
his seventh home run of the year.
In the sixth, Jim Lonborg, 10-
6, walked Robinson and Merv
Rettenmund, then Belanger came
through with his decisive double
. into the left-field corner.
That was enough to give Mike
Cuellar his 11th victory against
nine defeats. But when Milwau-
kee cut the Orioles' lead to 3-2
in the sixth on a walk and two
singles, Doyle Alexander came
on to stifle the rally.
Baltimore added two insurance
runs in the eighth on a single
by Rettenmund, a double by
Ellie Hendricks and two errors
by Brewer shortstop Rick Auer-

fourth-inning outburst that gave
the Royals a 4-2 victory over the
Oakland A's last night.
The defeat, the A's fourth in
the last five baseball games, cut
their lead over idle Chicago in
the American League West to
three games.
Hunter, 14-5, owning a 2-0 lead
going into the fourth, walked
Richie Scheinblum and gave up
a double to Ed Kirkpatrick. Lou
Piniella then hit a sacrifice fly
for the Royals' first run.
Magic number: 52
You people better hurry to buy
your American League Playoff tickets
because the bruisin' Bengals decep-
lice digit now reads 52. It would

and messed things up.
Fred Patek was walked inten-
tionally but the strategy back-
fired when winning pitcher Dick
Drago, 8-13, Cookie Rojas and
Amos Otis followed with run-
scoring singles.
Joe Rudi's 14th home run of
the season in the first inning
and a double by Bill Voss, a
single by Angel Mangual and
Tim Cullen's double-play ground-
er accounted for Oakland's two
Twins trip
Jim Perry, helping himself with
a wild unassisted double play,
pitched a two-hitter yesterday
and paced the Minnesota Twins
to a 5-0 baseball victory over
the Texas Rangers in the Ameri-
can League.
With none out in the fifth,
Perry lost his no-hit bid when
Dick Billings bounced an infield
single over the pitcher's out-
stretched glove and Ted Ford
lined a single to right.
Mets nipped
ST. LOUIS - Ted Sizemore's
looping hit to left field bounced
past a diving Cleon Jones for an
inside-the-park home run in the
13th inning, giving the St. Louis
Cardinals a 3-2 victory over the
New York Mets last night.
Sizemore led off the 13th' af-
ter Tug McGraw had worked
four hitless innings and struck

out six in relief of Tom Seaver.
Jones elected to try and catch
his short fly but the baseball
got past him and rolled to the
wall as Sizemore circled the
bases and scored easily with only
his second home run of the sea-
It was the Mets' fifth defeat
in their last seven outings and
dropped them 81t games behind
Pittsburgh in the National
League East.
The Mets tied the score
against Bob Gibson in the ninth
on successive doubles by Ken
Boswell and Duffy Dyer.
New York took the lead in the
first inning on Wayne Garrett's
second home run of the season
but the Cards tied it in the bot-
tom of the first on Lou Brock's
single and stolen base and Joe
Torre's single.
St. Louis moved in front 2-1 in
the fourth when Torre and Ted
Simmons sirigled and Seaver
walked Jose Cruz and Dal Max-
Colts get
IRVINE, Calif. OP) - The
San Diego Chargers sent back-
up quarterback Marty Domres
to the Baltimore Colts yester-
day in exchange for a 1973
first round draft choice and
rookie tight end John Andrews.
Domres, the Chargers' No. 1
pick in 1969 from Columbia
University, saw little action in
his first three years behind,
starter John Hadl and had
asked to be traded.
San Diego Head Coach Har-
land Svare called Domres a
"fine quarterback" but added,
We have an excellent quarter-
back in Wayne Clark and we
wanted to get our No. 1 draft
choice back.
The Chargers had given up
their first round selection to
Philadelphia a week ago to ob-
tain linebacker Tim Rossovich.
While with the Chargers,
Domres completed 82 of 179
passes for 1,209 yards and five

Special To The Daily
Ben Hogan said this course was
a monster, he wasn't kidding."
The words came from the man
who came closest to taming
Oakland Hills' rugged layout,
new PGA champion Gary Play-
er, After becoming only the
second pro to win a tournament
without breaking par this year,
Player used nothing but super-
latives to describe this thumb-
ling course" which bruised the
egos of the year's most select
"This was the toughest and
most well prepared course ever
to hold the PGA."
Player's two-stroke victory
over Jim Jamieson and Tommy
Aaron was sealed at the hazar-
dous sixteenth hole when he
drove into the deep left rough.
Unable to see the flag stick from
behind a group of trees, Player
took aim on a seat stick in the
gallery behind the green and un-
corked a nine iron which cleared
the trees and came to rest four
and one half feet from the hole.
The five-eight South African
called it one of the greatest
shots under pressure he has ever
made. "I was 15 yards from the

green with a nine iron," re-
called the champion, "and you've
got to know the ball is going
to be in the water or very close."
The birdie producing ap-
proach came after Player had
rimmed a 15 inch par putt on
number fifteen.

WHILE favorites Jack Nick-
laus, Lee Trevino and Arnold
Palmer were no where in sight,
Jamieson, Aaron, Ray Floyd,
Billy Casper and Jerry Heard
all held at least a share of the
lead during the final round.
None however could stand pat

long enough to win it.
Jamieson had the best chance,
starding at even par after 15
holes Sunday, but by his own
admission felt the pressure too
much as he bogeyed 16, 17 and
18 to finish at three over par
Heard, the tournament's sec-
ond round leader, hit the ball
superbly all four days, but on
only one occasion sank a put
of over 10 feet. The tour's third
leading money winner pulled
ahead of Player when he birdied
the first hole while the eventual
winner was taking bogeys at 1,
3 and 4. Heard slammed the
door on his own chances how-
ever, when he missed putts of
under eight feet at 11, 12 and

The victory was a great per-

hadn't won a major tournament
since the 1965 U.S. Open. At

Player from golf's so-called "big
THE CRITICS had no leg to
stand on anyway. In only fifteen
tour stops this year, Player won
the New Orleans Open, and
placed second in the Atlantic
Golf Classic, fourth in the Kem-
per Open, and in the top ten a
total of seven times.
° One reporter asked if an in-
cidert at the Greensboro Open
wnhere Player had failed to sign
his card after a third round 67
and was disqualified had made
him more determined to win the
"That helped," said Player.
"But what really did it was that
article in the paper last week."
He was referring to a story in
the Detroit Free Press which
described his fall from golf's
elite.) "That story was unfair,"
he said. "I've won more tourna-
ments than anyone else in the
game, and I've won more money
than anyone except Jack (Nick-
laus)." The verbage of the
story's headline had Player
snorting a reply. He called it a
"nasty article" and wondered
aloud how one "snorts."

ALTHOUGH BROTHER Gaylord is receiving much of the pub-
licity this season, Minnesota's Jim Perry merits ,some attention
as he won his fifth straight yesterday on a two-hit shutout
against Texas. Combined, the Perry duo has won 29 and lost 18.
