Yankees Up Margin In American Legion (Ky the Associated 1'rcss) Consider the desperate plight of the New York Yankees. They've been forced to use the likes of Hector Lopez and John Blanchard in the outfield in place of injured super-slurs Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. They've pressed their aging coach, Yogi Berra, inio duty as catcher and pinch hitler. They've had to put a youthful left-hander named Al Downing straight from the minors into their front-line pitching rotation. But, somehow or another, the Yankees have struggled into a e'i- game edge in the American League—which is quite an edge for this lime of the season, even for the perennial pennant winners. The Yanks pushed into their biggest lead of the year Sunday with a rionhleheader sweep over their favorite opponents, the Kansas Cily Athletics. A 14-liit attack led by Lopez, Berra and Blanchard powered the Yanks to an 11-6 victory in the four-hit __j Nellie Fox' clutch two-run single in the ninth inning following a fi-3 setback in the first game of home runs and swept Cleveland 5-3 and 8-2. The Detroit-at-Washingion dou- blehearier was rained out. The A's drew five walks off Bill Stafford in the first inning of the opener at Kansas City, taking a 4-9 lead, but the Yanks opener, while Downing's pitching and the slugging of El- slon Howard and Tom Tresh won the second game 5-0. The Boston Red Sox kept their slim hold on second place in a split at Los Angeles, winning the second game 5-0 after the Angels look Ihe opener 11-8. Chicago's third-place White Sox divided with Baltimore, nipping the Orioles 3-2 second game, while Earl Battcy, pounded back and finally made a rout of it with five runs in the eighlh. The 22-year-old Downing struck out 10 in his third shutout and fifth victory since being promoted from Richmond last month. Chet Nichols and relief ace Dick Hadatz combined for a five- hit shutout for the Red Sox in the second game at Los Angeles, while in the opener the Angels drew seven walks and every one became a run. Fox brought the While Sox a split with the Orioles when he banged a bases-loaded single with two out in the bottom of the ninth innin^ The second game was marred by a beanballing incident in which Manager Billy Hitchcock of the Orioles had to be restrained as he charged toward White Sox pitcher John Buzhardt. Jerry Adair was hit in the mouth and Brooks Robinson in the helmet by Buzhardt fast halls, Homers brought Minnesota 11 of its 13 runs in the sweep over Cleveland. Reserve Don Mincher belted a grand slam and Harmon Killebrew hit a two-run shot in the Zoilo Versalles and Vic Power connected in the opener. Jim Kaat and Bill Pleis were the winning Minnesota unloaded a barrage pitchers.
