WITHOUT THROWING A SINGLE PUNCH Battling Birds Home to Roost- Regain Top Spot By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer Those battling Birds from Baltimore have come home to roost— without throwing a single punch. The Orioles pecked their way to a 3-2 12-inning victory over the Chicago White Sox Wednesday night and regained first place in! the American League Bast. ;No beanballs were unleashed and no fans were pummeled— in contrast to the Orioles' Memorial Day donnybraok at Chicago. The world merely diazzled the champions White Sox with their footwork this time around. Paul Blair scroed the winning rim on a bases-loaded wild pitch by Terry Forster in the 12th—after dodging a tag by third baseman Bill Melton to reach third on Dave Johnson's one-out grounder. Brooks Robinson bad tied the game with a two-run single in the (ninth—'after Merv Retten- mund kept the rally going by beating out a slow roller to Melton. The victory, coupled with Boston's 6-1 loss to the New York Yankees, sent Baltimon into the division lead for the first time since April 29—with a margin of four percentage oints over the skidding Red SOX. Elsewhere in the AL, Detroit nipped Minnesota 5-4; Califor- lia edged Washington 2-1 in a din-shortened game.'.andCleve- and topped Milwaukee 4-2. Kansas City and Oakland were not scheduled. In National 'League action, the New York Mets downed San ?rancisco 5-2; the Chicago Cubs swept a twi-night doubleheader from Cincimiaiti 6-3 and 4-1; Pittsburgh slammed St. Louis 10-1; Los Angeles walloped Montreal 7-1; San Diego blanked Philadelphia 6-0 and Atlanta beat Houston 3-1. Tom Bradley, Chicago's young pitching star, stymiet the Orioles on three hits until the ninth, when Dave Johnson cracked a leadoff stogie. He took second on a balk, before Badley walked" Prank Robin son and gave up Rsttenmund's infield hit, filling the bases. Brooks Robinson then knotted it 2-2 with single to left. In the 12tih, Vicente Homo walked Blair, batting for reliev er Dick Hall, on four pitches Don Buford sacrificed and Johnson bounced to Melton -ho went for the sidestepping Hair and missed the tag. The Mwte Sox protested that Blair tiad left the baseline and Coach was ejected from Page 9 Garden City Telegram Thursday. June 3. 1971 The Standings oe Lonnett the game. Forster then came out of the Vhiite Sox bullpen, walked Boog 'owell to fill the bases and loosed the tie-breaking wild pitch. Bobby Murcer hit his ninth and 10th home runs of the season as the Yankees routed previously-unbeaten Sonny Siebert and handed Boston its fifth straight setback behind the six- hit pitching of Stan Bahnsen. Siebert, who 'had won 11 in a row— moulding nine this season—left for a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning trailing 4-0. Horace Clarke drilled two singles and a tjriple, stole two Clyde Wright checked Washington on four hits and drove in the deciding run with a second inning single off Denny McLain as the Angdis ended four- game tailspin in a game halted by rain in the top of the eighth. McLain, 4-9, has lost four in a row 'and six of his last seven starts., Cleveland's Sam McDowell won his fourth 'straight for a 5-5 mark, but needed ninitih inning relief help as the Indians beat Milwaukee with a flurry of three unearned runs in the third. McDowell, who gave up five hits, struck out eight and walked six, was lifted with a 20 count on the first batter he faced in the ninth. Phil Hennigan amid Rick Austin finished up.

"I really feel good here and I really like this course," said Tom Kite Jr., of McKinmey, Tex. Kite,is one of six Americana still left, out of 65 who first entered the 86th renewal of this unique' match-play competition and he described Carooustie's 6,828-yard par 72 seaside links as something "We Americans understand."

The other American Walker Cup players were stacked like his:. " . ... Steve Melnyk.of -,. Jacksonville, $ia.,' took on John Gloer of Wales. John Farquhar, Amarillo, Tex., met Hugh Stuart, British 'Walker Cup star who won all three of his matches at, St. Andrews last week, Jim Simons, Butler, Pa., played the youngest man in the champion- hip, 16-year-old Howard Clark of England. The two American outsiders were Ed Updegraff of Tucson, Ariz., an ex-Walker Cupper, and Mike Sanger of Mt. Kiseo, N.Y. Updegraff, a semilfinalist in the Amateur in Scotland eight years ago, was paired against 25-year-old Bill Hogg.

The locals trailed 0-3 after just one frame, but came back for six runs in the fourth frame to take it. It was a big win for Manager Duane Hays' locals, who had been beaten twice by Great Bend and eliminated here last summer in the annual regional American Legion playoffs. Only about 150 fans turned out at Clint LigUtner Field for the opener. The Bison are in action again tonight. They play at Hooker, Okla., in an Ok-Kan League clash. Great Bend was a non-league foe. Garden was outhit 4-3, but had just two errors to three for the visitors. Both Bison miscues, however, were costly. They came in the opening frame as Great Bend rolled to its 3-0 lead. Eight batters paraded to the plate for Great Bend its first time up. The visitors got two hits, .and got two runners on base as a result of fielders' choices. The two errors also contributed. Big blow was Jeff Drake's double. He was the first batter of the season to face the Bison. v The balance of the route, Great Bend managed just two singles off pitcher John Berg- 10 games.

Joe Fnaziar, heavyweight champion of the world, is the man they're after, ithe only man to demolish each of their hopes for a championship. AM amd Ellis took a step on itheir comeback trails Wednesday, signing for a scheduled 12- round figtot July 26 at the Houston Asitrodome. The winner will be a likely Octndtitiaite for another tilths shot 'alt Frazier. The careers of the 1iwo Louis- vile, Ky., fighters have paralleled each other for years, since .they, fought as amateurs, but Effis spent most of the time •in AM's shadow. He was Dhe sparring partner when AM took the championship from Soqiny-Iiistpn in 1964 and remained . in itfhe background role until AM was stripped of the title in 1967 for refusing militairy induction.

Hell, I was out for 17 monitlhs and that didn't do me no good.!' Since Dhen, Elis, ranked No. 7, has won three in a row, beating Roberto Davila, Irish Tony Doyle and Canadian cliampion George Chuvalo. He owns a 30-6 record.

(AP) — It was a subdued Dave Hill, burdened witih a one-year probation and facing an uncertain playing career, who set out today in the first round of the $125,000 Atlanta Golf Classic. "I'm tired of being the bad guy in the black hat," quipped the volatile Hill. "This week', I'm wearing a white bait. Rode' up on a white charger and.I've got him parked right outside." The 34-year-old HilJ was\ slapped with the probation for "conduct unbecoming a professional golfer" in his second round of the Colonial National Invitation Tournament in Fort Worth, Tex. two .weeks ago. /"'Hill, playing poorly"that day, threw a ball out of a sand trap oii the 18th hole and purposely \Asigned an incorrect scorecard. He was disqualified 'on the spot and later fined $500. Hill, the storm center of several major controversies in recent years, paid the fine and .followed up with a $1 million damage suit against the Tournament Players Division arid tile Professional Golfers Association. The suit, the first of its kind against the two golf groups, is pending in federal district • court in Memphis, Tenm. ' The suit, among other thingsi, charged the PGA and the TPD with violation of Hill's civil rights, violation of his right of free speech and violation of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. The suspension was handed 'down by thie Policy Boaird of the Tournament Players Division and does not prohibit Hill Bui; "In the event of further infraction of Tournament Rules and Regulations, during the probationary period, Mr. Hill will be subject to suspension from TPD competition and termination of TPD membership," ' a prepared statement issued by TPD Commissioner Joe Dey said. .That would prohibit HiU from playing. It's happened before "three or four times, I forget which," Hill said. "But this is the first time I've ever been on probation. I wonder who I have to report to." Hill, an intense, highly- charged man, is a tough, wiry, darkly-handsome native of Jackson, Mich. He's won almost one-half million dollars in his dozen years on the pro tour and picked up eight titles. His best year was ,1969 When he won $156, WO and three tour- nanilapits, co|'ped. te cqveted Vardon Trophy for the best stroke average on the tour and was named to the Ryder Cup team. Hill, who hasn't won but has four finishes in the top 10 this year, was one of the key figures in the 150 mian field that began competition today on the hilly, 6,833-yard, par-72 Atiianta Counibry Club course.' Leading money winner Jack Nicklaus, the only winner of three titles this season, was the favorite. His chief challengers included Lee Trevino, winner of last week's Danny Thomas Memphis Classic, Masters King Charles Coody, U.S. Open titleholder Tony Jacfclin of England, defending champ Tom Aaron and South African Gary Player. . .
