Boston downs Detroit PAN-AM GAMES:
1 , - U.S. routs swimmers

as hitters go berserk

By The Associated Press
BOSTON - Pinch hitter Rico
Petrocelli's run - scoring single
with two out in the ninth inning
capped a wild slugfest and gave
the Boston Red Sox a 12-11 vic-
tory over the Detroit Tigers
Billy Conigliaro's infield sin-
gle with one out started Bos-
ton's decisive ninth. Then, John
Kennedy doubled to left, but
Conigliara stumbled rounding
third and was cut down trying
to score.
After Bob Montgomery, who
had driven in six runs, four
with his first major league
grand slam, home run, was
walked intentionally, Petrocelli
batted for winning reliever

Sparky Lyle and delivered his
game-winning hit to left.
George Scott had four hits as'
the Red Sox snapped a three-
game losing streak against De-
troit despite six Tiger homers,
three by Bill Freehan, two by
Willie Horton and one by Au-
relio Rodriguez.
The slugfest, aided by a
strong wind blowing out and a
bright sun which plagued field-
ers, was enlivened by a melee
after Detroit reliever Bill Dene-
hy hit Reggie Smith with a pitch
to start the Boston sixth.
The two exchanged words
and, with Freehan standing be-
tween them, Smith threw a

grazing right-hand punch. Both
dugouts and the bullpens emp-
tied, but cooler heads prevailed
and there was no further trouble.
Dodgers dump
ST. LOUIS - Wes Parker and
Willie Davis pounded four hits
apiece, leading the Los Angeles
Dodgers to a 6-5 victory over
Bob Gibson and the St. Louis
Cardinals last night.
The Dodgers, moving within
41/2 games of first-place San
Francisco in the National League
West, ripped Gibson, 10-10, for
10 of their 15 hits in the first 3 1-3


CALL Colombia WP) - The
United S t a t esashattered the
world record in the men's 800-
meter freestyle relay and con-
tinued its wholesale assault on
Pan Am marks last night dur-
ing another star-spangled swim-
ming rout in the Pan American
Anchored by Frank Heckl,
the 6-5 pre-med student from
the University of -Southern Cali-
fornia who won his third gold
medal, the Yankee freestylers
whipped through the four 200-
meter legs in 7:45.8 seconds.
This cracked-the world mark
of 7:48, set by a powerful U.S.
team in Tokyo Aug. 28, 1970.
Steve Furniss, an 18-year-old
high schooler from Santa Ana,
Calif., won his second gold
medal and broke his second Pan
Am record with a 2:13.2 triumph
in the men's 200-meter indi-
vidual medley, robbing Heckl of
another gold, and two U.S. girls
finally put an end to Canada's
domination of women's events.
Ann Simmons, 18, of Long
Beach, Calif., captured thewo-
men's 400-meter freestyle in
4:26.2, breaking Debbie Meyer's
record of 4:32.6 set four years
ago at Winnipeg. Lynn Colella,
a 21-year-old mechanical engi-
neer from the University of
Washington, took the women's
200-meter breaststroke in 2:50.0.
Simmons paced the United
States' first 1-2 finish in the
women's competition, with 15-
year-old Jill Strong of Tucson,
Ariz., taking the silver in 3:36.2,
ahead of Angela Couglan of
Colella, in beating J a n e
Wright and Leonor Ureata of

Mexico, joined her kid brother.
Richard, 19, as a gold medalist.
He previously had won the
men's 200-meter breaststroke.
Until last night, Canada had
overshadowed Uncle Sam's wo-
men swimmers by taking five of
the seven championships and
sweeping the two diving events.
On the other hand, the U.S.
men have now won ten gold
medals, seven silver and two
bronze, losing only one title-
that Sunday to Ecuador's Jorge
Delgado in the 200-meter but-
Jerry Heidenreich of Dallas,
clocking 1:56.7, got the United
States off to a 15-meter lead in
their relay triumph and Jim
McConica of Ventura, Calif.,
swimming the second leg in a
fast 1:56.1, turned it into a run-
away. Steve Genter of Lake-
wood, Calif., clocked 1:56.7 on
the third leg and Heckl an-
chored the team home in 1:56.38.
Canada was a badly beaten
second in 8:04.8 and Brazil third
in 8:08.4.
Nancy Robertson, a 21-year-
old tower diving specialist from
Winnipeg, completed a Cana-
dian sweep of women's diving
honors and ended a 20-year
monopoly of the United States
dating back to the birth of the
games in 1951. U.S. women had
never 'lost a title before these
Robertson, performing diffi-
cult tasks in the final two op-
tional dives, scored an excep-
tional 375.12, beating out team-
mate Beverley Boys, 20, also of
Winnipeg, who scored 363.57.
Liz Carruthers of Canada had
won the springboard previously.

Mara said he didn't think the

provided a n y insurmountable
gap but there was a question of
a loan which Tarkenton wanted
from the club. Tarkenton had

"Isturned this matter over to

said. "On the basis of what
they told me there was no way
I could make the loan.
"I don't regard this as a pres-
