It was the cellar-dwellers' llth victory in the last 14 games. No ther club in the league can natch thai. Lock slashed a two-out single o drive in the winning run, In the eighth he singled In anther run during Ihe uprising gainst starter Jim Kaat and ace elicver Bill Dalley. The 26-year-old outfielder, pur- based Inst year despite « .194 atling average and a history oi lever hitting ,300 In six years in the minors, slammed a home run his first time at bat. That gave him 13 for the season, second high on the club. He leads the Senators in runs bat- led in with 47. Kansas City nipped Baltimore 2-0 and Detroit defeated Los Angeles 10-5. Rain forced postponement of games between the Bos ton Red Sox and While Sox in Chicago, and the Cleveland Indians and Yankees in New York. A throwing error by Twins shortstop Zoilo Versalles led to Washington's winning run. Ken Retzer, on base because of the error, advanced to second on an infield out and scored on Lock's single to right. Lefty Claude Osteen, Washington's winning pitcher, held off a Minnesota uprising In the bottom of the 13th to gain his fourth victory in 10 decisions. With one out, Don Mincher, Earl Baltey and Vic Power delivered consecutive singles but Mincher was out trying for third on Bailey's hit.

The incident occurred in the casino of Sonny's plush hotel training quarters. Clay admitted he got slapped and from what Sonny said in his confirmation, it was not exactly play. Nor was there any fight ballyhoo involved. There were no writers nor cameramen around at the time. Cassius, in fact, has taken the publicity play away from the remote Patterson, who after all, is trying to retain his crown from Lislon, not Clay. "He was running his mouth," Sonny said of Cassius. Was it a hard slap? "I didn't have no gauge," Sonny answered. Cassius reappeared lo heckle Liston's workout Friday but by now his material is beginning to pall. It might even reach the level of his poelry. New England Sports Briefs NASHUA, N. H.
