He's still the most tempestuous and argumentative player in baseball. The newest Angel — he joined Los Angeles last Saturday—was back in an American League uniform for only a few hours when he became involved in another of his famous skirmishes with umpires. This one had a little extra flair: An umpire wound up on the seat of his pants—with Piersall's cap with the halo on lop in the ciirt beside him. The game ended with Piersall on the outside looking in, a position in which the fiery outfielder may find himself if the league president. Joe Crouin decides umpire John Stevens didn't fall but was pushed. Piersall celebrated his return to the American League on Saturday by cracking two hits as the Angels downed the Boston Red Sox 5-2. Jimmy wasn't in the starting line-up as the Angels beat his old team 5-0 in the first game Sunday. In the second game,"which Los Angeles won 5-4, Jimmy was highly instrumental in the victory. He singled in the ihird inning, stole second and eventually scored. He singled again in the eighth and scored what proved to be the win- run when Billy Moran's Transcript ......... 2 nmg double piny grounder went through shortstop Eddie Bressoud's legs. Detroit l>eat Washington 3-2 and 6-4- Chicago's White Sox clipped Baltimore 4-1; the New York Yankees split a doubleheader with Minnesota, winning the second game 3-2 after the Twins won the opener 5-1, and Kansas City and Cleveland divided a twin bill, the Athletics winning the first 3-0 with the Indians taking the second 12-7. In the ninth inning of the second game, Piersall didn't like a called strike by plate umpire Bill Kinnamon and protested vehemently. Kinnamon ordered him off the field. That only infuriated Piersall all the more. Stevens charged in from second base in an effort to calm the raging Piersall but wound up in the dirt near home plate. "Piersall still had his bat in his band," Stevens explained. "I grabbed the bat in an effort to calm him. I told him to take it easy if he didn't want to get suspended. "He let go of the bat and I had nothing lo hold on to. As he swung away from me to talk to Kinnamon again, I fell down. "But I don't blame Piersall for that. He was just mad and I was trying to calm Mm down." Piersall said he was angry because Kinnamon accused him of swearing. "1 .vasn't swearing," be sain. "I haven't sworn at an umpire all season. I was just complaining about the call." Second baseman Nellie Fox rapped his 2,500th hit and rookie southpaw Gary Peters (10-5) hurled his fourth straight complete game as the second place White Sox narrowed the Yankees' lead to eight games. Outfielder Dave Nicholson, who drove in five runs during the White Sox' doubleheader sweep Saturday hit his Ifilh homer in the first inning. John Goryl's base - clearing home run helped Camilo Pascual earn his llth victory for the Twins. The Yankees won the nightcap in the ninth on Hector Lopez' two-run single. Orlando Pena pitched a two-hitter and Norm Siebern drove in two runs in the Athletics' first game shutout triumph, Cleveland came roaring back with 14 hits in the nightcap, scoring seven runs in the sixth inning, the last four on catcher John Romano's grand slam. Al Kaiinc of the Tigers cracked a game winnyig homer in the opener and started the winning rally with a single in Ihe nightcap.

Jim Piersall Faces Fine or Suspension BOSTON (AP) — Tempera mental Jimmy Piersall—the new est halo-wearing member of the L06 Angeles Angels—faced a fine or suspension today for an antic in which an umpire l»nded on the seat of his pants, The arbiter, veteran John Stevens, was trying to calm Piersal down during Sunday's doubleheader with the Boston Red Sox when it happened. Piersall, an Angel only since Saturday, was embroiled in argument over a called strike wilh plale umpire Bill Kinnamon, It was the ninth inning of the sec ond game and weak-hitting Jim Fregost had just been walked in tentionally to put runners on first and second, two out, Los Angeles leading 5-4. Reliefer Dick Radatz fired in hi* first pitch to the 33-year-old Piersall, released last week by the New York Mels. It looked about chest high and Kinnamon raised his right hand, signaling a strike. Piersall whirled around and be gan shouting at Kinnamon. An gels manager Bill Rigney raced lo Piercall's defense, alto protest- Ing. Stevens came In from his second base post. "I grabbed Piersall'a bat, try- Ing to calm him down," said Stevens. "1 (old him lo lake it easy. 1 didn't want him to get into Iron- bit, I told him he'd be suspended If he didn't slow down, "But he swung (way from me, going back to Kinnamon, and !e: the bat go. I had nothing to hole on to and I fell along the third base path. "But I don't blame Jim. He was just mad and I was just trying to calm him down." Piersall, whose 12-year major league history is doited with episodes and escapades of varying olor, said he was incensed because Kinnamon accused him ol using foul language in his protest. "I wasn't swearing," Piersall said. "I haven't sworn at an urn pire all season. I was just com plaining about the call. But I'm sick and tired of being called a clown and a mil, I told Kinnamon that the pitcher (Ratlat?.) was ihrowing real fast — aspirin tablets — and couldn't he bear down more on his calls." "What fhe heck," Piersall said 'I'm trying to win a job with this club." Rigney said he doupted if Piersall had swom. "I think Kinnamon made a mis- ,ake in throwing him out like that," he said. "What the heck, It was about 110 out there, Sure, Piersall's hot-headed. But he didn't act any difftrently than he ins for 12 years. He was just arguing about the pilch. That'i all."
