MAJOR LEAGUE ROUNDUP:
Boston bucks Milwaukee, 5-3

In a game matching two of the
American League's most explosive
teams, the Boston Red Sox downed
Milwaukee, 5-3, last night before more
than 28,000 fans at Fenway Park.
Butch Hobson led the Red Sox,
driving in three runs with a homer and
a sacrifice fly. Hobson, trying to break
out of a slump which dropped his
average to .214, hit his home run, a two-
run shot, in the fourth inning.
CHUCK RAINEY, the 24-year-old
righthander, scattered seven hits, in-

cluding a home run to Dick Davis, in
raising his record to 5-1. Former
Michigan standout pitcher Lary Soren-
son, 4-4, absorbed the loss.
Elsewhere around the American cir-
cuit, ageless Luis Tiant combined with
Rick Gossage for a three-hitter and
Rick Cerone snapped a scoreless tie
with a bases-loaded double as the
division-leading New York Yankees
blanked Toronto, 6-0; Cleveland hosted
Seattle in a game delayed nearly two
hours by rain; Chicago faced Kansas
