OAKLAND BEATS THE CLOCK, SENATORS 5-3 o e li- As Win 2 ]-Inning (Whew!) Tilt By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Oakland A's, tfielr handsome gold and green uniforms looking a little straggly after 20 Imdnigs, turned : into princes instead of pumpkins when they, beat the docl: and the Washington Senators ,5-3 in the 21st Friday night. ; Jim SheHtaiback, one of 15 pitchers thrown into ifihe marathon 5-Hiour 19-mitaute game, walked Reggie Jackson with the bases Imded, forcing home the tie-breaking run, then wiJd- piltcihed another across as Hhe A's scored twice In the 21st in- ning—^ttielr last chance. The clock in RFK Stadium was bearing down on 1 a.m., EOT, the local curfew after whidh no innings could be slbart- ed. Had the A's not scored when .they did 'and the tie rea- miined intact 'through '21 innings, the game would have bad to be replayed from the start on another date. Of course, had the Senators not rallied for three runs in the bottom of the ninth to tie it, ttie A's could have had a quicker and much neater victory. But a win is a win whether it takes nine innings or 21 and Oakland, leading ifihe American League West, isn't about to be choosy. In other American League action Friday night, Boston belted California 10-1, Kansas City clipped New York 6-2, Chicago edged Detroit -3-2, Baltimore blanked Milwaukee 2-0 and Cleveland downed Minnesota 42 In a gaihie ended by rain in the sixth inning.' In the National League, Philadelphia trimmed San Francisco 5-3, Chicago chopped Atlanta 11-0, Pittsiburgh nipped Houston 3-2, Cincinnati bombed St. Louis 12-0, Montreal topped San Diego 3-1 and New York trimmed Los Angeles 3-1. It looked like fate wasn't on Oakland's side when Larry , Bittnier fired a strike to catcher Paul Casanova, cutting down Dick Green with the potential lead run when he tried to score on Curt -Blelary's single in the 21st. Blefary moved up on the throw and SheJlemiback walked Bert Campanenis intentionally. He wM-pitched the runners up and then walked Larry Brown and Jackson, forcing home the go-ahead run, before another wild pitch delivered Campaneries with the second run of tine inning. The game fell one inning short of the longest night game in American League history-na 224nning affair .ait Washington on June 12, 1967 in which the Senators beat Chicago €-5. Boston crushed Culifornia with a five-run filth inning and a 17-hit assault that made Gary Peters' sixth victory of tibie sea- eon easy. Duane Josephson contributed ia three-run double and Carl Yastrzemiskr had three hits for ithe Red Sox. Kansas City stretched its win- niimig stnta: to five games, beating te Yankees. The Royals got first inning homers by Paul Schaal and Cookie Rojas to take command and Ken Wright and Tom Burgmeier combined to pitch a foiMshitter. Carlos May drove in. all of Chicago's rums with three singles and Wlbur Wood set down Detroit for his fourth victory of the season. Wood surrendered a leadoff homer to Ike Brown and a triple to Aurelio Rodriguez in, the first inning but settled down, allowing the Tiges only five more hits after that. Mike Cuelar'a fourJhit pitching "and a two-ran homer by Firamk Robinson pushed Baltimore past Milwaukee. CueUar, 8-1, struck out six and waled two. Robinson unloaded his fifth homer in the fk»t following a two-out stogie by Brooks Robinson.

Nicklaus, ending a three- week lay-off, carved out a 68 over the 6,883-yard, par 72 Atlanta Country Club course to gain a deadlock at 135 with Miller, a slender blond. "I see Nicklaus is playing bad again," joked Miller during a interview as he gazed at the Scoreboard. Miller bad entered the second . round with a two-shot lead after shooting IB,, sizzling 65 in the opening round. Ho was asked if having a player like Nicklaus right on his heels bothered him.
