KANSAS CITY shortstop Fred Patek grimaces with pain as he twisted his ankle in the first inning
of last night's game between the Royals and the Detroit Tigers. He may have grimaced even
more nine innings later as the streaking Tigers made Kansas City their ninth straight victim. Ben-
gal pitcher Vern Rhule won a 3-2 decision.

Ashe and Connors
favored by Arthur

Major League Leaders

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - Wimbledon
champion Arthur Ashe said yes-
terday he would enjoy having
Jimmy Connors as a partner in
the Association of Tennis Pro-
fessionals' Nations Cup tourna-
ment to be played in Kingston,
Jamaica, this fall.
"Personal differences should
be cast aside for national
purposes," Ashe said at a
news conference announcing
the international team com-
petition tournament, alluding
to his off-the-court differences
with Connors, including law-
suits involving the pair.
"I would love to play with
Connors on both the Davis Cup
and Nations Cup teams."
Ashe, who is president of the
ATB, already has qualified for
the U.S. team in the Nations
Cup tournament through a com-
puterized point system being
used by the Association to de-
termine which countries and in-

dividuals are eligible for the
$100,000 event. Connors, who
was defeated by Ashe in the
Wimbledon finals, heads the list
of qualifiers, and ATP executive
director Jack Kramer said in-
vitations had been sent to Con-
nors at several addresses, "hop-
ing that one will reach him."
The United States and Aus-
tralia are the only two na-
tions which already have
clinched places in the eight-
team competition. The other
nations will be determined on
the basis of how their top
singles players fare in various
tournaments between now and
the end of August.
The two players from the na-
tions who qualify according to
the point system will choose a
third players from their coun-
try. The competition will include
two singles and one doubles
match.
The tournament will run from
Sept. 29 to Oct 5.

Paper says
Ruffian
00f
insured
S A C R A M E N T 0,
Calif. - Lloyds of London had
insured the ill-fated thorough-
bred Ruffian for $2.1 million,
the Sacromento Bee reported
In an article by Atlee Horner,
an undisclosed source was
quoted as saying Ruffian's own-
er, Stuart Janney Jr., shortly
before the Belmont Park race,
added $906,000 more to the $1.2
million policy he already car-
ried. -
In that Sunday race against
Foolish Pleasure, Ruffian, who
won all her previous 10 starts,
broke sesamoid bones in her
right leg and was humanely
put to sleep following surgery.
Earlier reports were that Ruf-
fian was recently insured for an
undisclosed sum which most
horse insurance brokers felt waS
not near the million dollar policy
taken out by Foolish Pleasure.
