'Cash Register' Continues To Ring for Detroit City By KEN RAPPO"ORT Associated Pess Sports Writer The Cash register continues to ring for Detroit City while moving toward the top of the all-time Tiger hit parade. That's Norm Cash, spinning sweet music with his jwing. Cash clouted another game- winning home run, powering Detroit past Milwaukee 3-2 Thursday night, and pulled into a second-place tie with Hank Green'berg on the team's career list with 310 blasts. "It's great to tie Greenberg because he was a heck of a ballplayer," said Cash, who also delivered a three-run shot in Wednesday night's 3-0 victory over the Brewers. Based on his hottest start in years, Cash inevitably will soon move into second place all by himself behind teammate Al Kaline, who has 355. Cash has been carrying the Tigers this season, including a number of game-winning hits in his team-leading 31 runs batted in and 13 homers. The Cleveland Indians swamped the ChicagD White Sox 9-0;. the Baltimore Orioles walloped the Minnesota Twins 12-0 and the New York Yankees clipped the California Angels 32 in the night's other American League games. Rain washed the contest between Washington and Kansas City. National League scores: San Diego Paidnes 4, New York Mets 2; Philadelphia Phillies 4, Los Angeles Dodgers 2; Montreal Expos 3, San Francisco Gianits 1; Aitlanta Braves 2, Houston Astros 1 and Pittsburgh Pirates 3, St. Louis Cardinals 1. Just before Cash's two-run shot in the sixth inning that erased a 2-1 Milwaukee lead, Brewer Manager Dave Bristol went out to talk to pitcher Skip Lockwood. "I told Skip that this might be the foaHgame ... I was just trying to settle him down," said Bristol," and it turned out that it was the ballgame after all." The Tigers had scored their fist run in the second inning on a single by Mickey Stanley and triple by Bill Freehan before the Brewers came back to sock winner Joe Coleman with Bill Voss' two-run homer in the fourth. Ray Fosse's three-run homer and Ted Uhlaender's two-run double backed Ray Lamb's five-bit pitching as Cleveland took Chicago to complete a sweep of their three-game series. Uhlaend<er's double capped a three-run first inning far the Indians and Fosse slugged his fourth homeo* of the season for three more runs in the second. Lamb pitched out of his only jam in the seventh, when he had men on second and third. Frank Robinson, saddled with an early-season slump, contin- ued his recent hot streak by driving in five runs on a homer and two singles for Baltimore .Robinson ' singled home the first of two Oriole runs ir the first inning, swatted a two-run homer to cap a four-run rally in the second and singled home two more tallies in the third. In the past seven games, Robby has been batting .500 with 14 hits, including four homers and 11 runs, batted in. The streak inflated his average to .314. Streaking Stan Bahnsen kept his hand hot with a five-hitter to lead the New York success. It was the fourth straight complete-game victory for the Yankee right-hander, who was stuck in a 1-6 won-lost rut earlier. Bahnsen, who started his winning string with a fivs-hitter against the Angels oh May 29, brought his record to 5-6 with Thursday night's perfor nance. Borrowed Putter PutsTomonTop CHARLOTTE, N.C.

"It would be like stealing Van Gogh's paint brush," Tall Tom said Thursday after he had carved out a sox-under-par 66 for a two stroke lead in the $150,000 Kemper Opan, Golf Tournament. , It .was the first time the 6- foot-3 Weiskopf had le)d at any stage of any lounrament this season. "I took four months off last year to go hunltmjj,'" he said. "I didn't play after Labor Day, I think my game suffered from the layoff and I feel I'm ju&t coming back." . The 28-year-old Weisfcopf, a non-winner since 1968, had a two-stroke margin over a quartet tied ait 68, four-under-par on the longest course the touring pros will play this season, the 7,278-yard Quail Hollow Country Club layout.

"I had the best stroke aver•aye on *he tour (70.643) and/! won almost $100,000 ($95,287)" said Weiskopf. "I'd never before had the opportunity to take off in a fall, and I had a bunch of hunting trips planned, so I just took off." The hard-hitting 28-year-old, in his eighth year on the pro tour, said he thought a long hitter had an advantage on the big coumse, but added "if'he's playing well, a long hitter has an advantage on almost «ny kind of course. He used only 29 strokes on the greens, didn't have a bogey, missed one fairway and one green.

The veteran thirt! baseman was fined Thursday by baseball Commissioner Bowie JCuhn for • betting on college and pro football games in 1968 and 1969. The action clears the way for Boyer to seek a deal with another club. All negotiations between Boyer and any team were suspended by Kmhn pending his investigation into the gambling issue._ "It is tome t&at a couple of. years ago I made a few bets on football games with a man I thought was a friend. :I have never bet on baseball and I have never made any kind of a bet with anyone I knew to-be a bookmaker," Boyer said in a statement issued by the office of Marvin Miller, executive director of the , Players' Association. However, the 34-year-old) infielder later said, I'm innocent, but I don't see any sense fighting it—the commissioner has shown a very understanding attitude." With Kulin's investigation and the fine,' believed to be the first in which a player lias been fined for betting on another sport, Boyer said he would like to play on fc West Coast. It was learntd Oakland has contacted Boyer since his departure from Atlanta. Oakland owner Charles 0. Pinley was not available for comment Thursday but Manager Dick Williams said: "We've been running hot and cold on Boyer. If we can make something else work, we'll be better off." Meanwhile, Miller is seeking to get Boyer his severance pay from Atlanta.' Boyer got into trouble with Atlanta when he said, in print, (hat "there shouldn't be a place for a guy like (General Manager Paul) Richards in baseball, and the manager (Lum Harris) wouldn't be here unless he was one of Paul's pals. Eddie Matthews (Braves coach) should be the manager—that's how much I think of him." Richards then questioned Boyer's ability and said he could have his release if he waived his severance pay, •about $15,000. Buyer, hitting .245 with six homers and 19 runs batted in in 30 games until he left May 23, agreed to do so and become a free agent May 28.
