Yanks rip up Lolich,
close to three back

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - The New York
Yankees rode a pair of eight-
inning runs and another top re-
lief effort by Sparky Lyle to a
4-2 victory over Detroit and
Mickey Lolich yesterday to move
to within three games of the
first-place Tigers in the Ameri-
can League East.
The victory by the Yankees,
their 33rd in the last 52 games,
foiled Lolich's bid to become
major league baseball's first 19-
game winner. Instead he suffer-
' ed his second straight loss and
eighth of the season.
The two eight inning runs
were b o t h unearned. Thurmon
Munson opened with a single and
moved to second when Lolich
bobbled Roy White's sacrifice
bunt. Felipe Alou then was hit
by a pitch to load the bases and,
with one out Celerino Sanchez
hit a sacrifice fly to break the
2-2 tie. Then Ron Swoboda fol-
lowed with his second run-scor-
ing single.

Pat Dobson (13-1i) with ninth-

Magic Number: 52
The Tigers have hit the
skids. The Yanks, the Red
Sox, the O's are on the up. Fat
Mickey can't win. But are
there more woes in Tiger-
town? Is there really truth to
the rumors that' Brash Billy
is on his way out and old fan
favorite Coco Gutierrez is on
his way back?!!
Powell, who had four hits for
a perfect night blasted his 15th
homer 400 feet into the Milwau-
kee bullpen off loser Jim Col-
burn in the third inning. Don
Buford opened the inning with a
bunt single and Paul Blair
The Orioles took a 1-0 lead in
the first when Blair singled,
Bobby Grich beat out a slow
roller to third and Powell
blooped a single to right.
Dobson lost his shutout bid in
the eighth when Rick Auerbach
and Ron Theobald singled, ad-

BOSTON - Doug Griffin
looped a tie-breaking single to
center field in the eighth in-
ning last night, triggering a
three-run burst that carried
the Boston Red Sox to a 4-1
victory over the Cleveland In-
The victory pulled Boston,
fourth in baseball's American
League East, within 4%/ games
of front-running Detroit.
Dick Miller's leadoff double
started the rally against Cleve-
land starter Dick Tidrow (9-
10). Winner Marty Pattin (10-
10) sacrificed, then Griffin
hit his decisive single.
When Luis Aparicio followed
with a double, Steve Mingori
replaced Tidrow and was greet-
ed by Carl Yastrzemski's sac-
rifice fly and Rico Petrocelli's
run-scoring single.
Pattin finished with a five-
hitter, striking out three In-
dians and walking one.
A walk, a grounder and Ben

Oglivie's single gave Boston a
fourth-inning run but Cleve-
land tied it in the sixth on Jack
Brohamer's two-out double and
Chris Chambliss' single.
Denny wins another!.
ATLANTA - Denny McLain
scattered seven hits and the
Atlanta Braves, backing him
with a five-run explosion in the
first inning, breezed to an 8-4
National League victory over the
Houston Astros last night.
The victory, only the Braves'
second in their last 10 baseball
games, provided Manager Ed-
die Mathews with a successful
home debut.
McLain (3-2) checked Hous-
ton on just one hit through
seven innings but lost his shut-
out in the eighth on singles by
Doug Rader, Tommy Helms and
Bob Fenwick. Rader homered in
the ninth.
Ralph Garr's double, two
walks and a two-run wild pitch
by Don Wilson (7-8) got the
Braves started. Dusty Baker
followed with a two-run homer,
his seventh, then Mike Lum
Seattle inks
SEATTLE P) - Standout
forward John Brisker, who
bought his own contract to es-
cape the American Basketball
Association, signed a multi-
year pact with the Seattle Su- '
per-Sonics yesterday, the Na-
tional Basketball Association
club announced.
The 25-year-old veteran of
three years with the defunct
Pittsburgh Condors was unable
to come to terms with Dallas,
which held his ABA rights.
He was waived out of the
ABA and became a free agent,
his attorney, Al Ross, said.
The Philadelphia 76ers, which
had drafted Brisker in a spe-
cial supplemental draft, said
it would ask the NBA to take
appropriate action. However,
Sonics General Manager Bob
Houbergs said he felt the 76ers
had no hold on Brisker.
Ross told the Sonics Brisker
could not come to terms with
Dallas, and the Chaparrals felt
it best to work out a deal with
the Detroit native, fourth lead-
ing scorer in the ABA last sea-
son with an average of 28.9
points per game.
Ross said that while talking.
to Dallas he had contacted
Philadelphia and NBA Commis-
sioner Walter Kennedy, ques-
tioning Philadelphia's draft
"The commissioner said if a
valid contract with an NBA
club was put before him, he
would sign it, in effect making
him (Brisker) a free agent."

REYKJAVIK (P) - Champion
Boris Spassky and challenger
Bobby Fischer played attack and
counterattack for the alloted five
hours yesterday, then adjourned
the 12th game of their world
championship chess match.
Chess masters were betting on
a draw when play resumes to-
day. Fischer leads the 24-game
series 61/-41/2. Spassky narrowed
the 29-year-old American's edge
by one point by winning Sunday
in a brilliantly played 11th game,
his first victory since the series
The Soviet champion made
what some grandmasters called
an "almost perfect defense" that
probably .would deprive Fischer
of a victory with the white
pieces, which have the first move
and a slight advantage.
Yugoslav grandmaster Sveto-
zar Gligoric said a draw was
The first 10 moves went rap-
idly, following the queen's gam-
bit; pattern of the sixth game,
which Spassky lost.
Play developed into the Meran
variation of the Queen's gambit,
a line rarely seen since the
1920s. The pace slowed to a
crawl, with both players in un-
familiar waters.
After 14 moves and an ineffec-
tive kingside thrust by the cham-
pion, Fischer was well behind
on the clock-for only the second

time in the match. He had used
45 minutes of the 2'/ hours each
player is allowed for 40 moves.
The Russian consolidated his
defense after the halfway point
and through about 10 moves the
players jockeyed for position.
Spectators streamed out of the
hall. Fischer looked angrily
across the darkened auditorium
as doors slammed.
On his 23rd move, Spassky
moved his kingside rook to form
a pair in the center of the board,
with a hidden attack on Fisch-
er's queen.
The American forced a rook
exchange, hoping to open up the
board to his advantage. But
Spassky parried, pressuring his
opponent's weak queenside, bare
but for a pawn pinned by a
But Fischer was set on a win.
At the 31st move he refused to
consider a queen swap, and Dan-
ish international master Jens
Enevoldsen said: "He won't
settle for a draw."
Again at the 40th move, Fisch-
er avoided exchanging queens.
He had a slight advantage in a
bishop to Spassky's knight, but
experts said this was probably
not enough to break through
Spassky's defense.
A c c o r d i n g to international
grandmaster Isaac Kashdin the
adjournment left Fischer in the
kind of position he likes and has

often nursed to victory.
Kashdin explained that Fischer
had a positional advantage,
though there is a strong likeli-
hood that the game will end in
a draw when play resumes to-
Fischer had two bishops against
Spassky's bishop and knight. In
addition, each player had a
queen, rook and five pawns. The
pawns are balanced, but Fischer
was poised for an advance on
the kingside in a few moves.
