ON-AGAIN, OFF-AGAIN AL EAST RACE ON AGAIN BoSox Back on Roller Coaster By MIKE RECHT Associated Press Sports Writer The on-again, off-again race in the American League East is on again. The Boston Red Sox, given up for dead a week ago, are back coi their roller coaster, going at full tilt and bearing down on the dragging Baltimore Orioles. Rico Petrocelli of the Red Sox and Cleveland's Vada Pinson provided the latest ups and downs Thursday night with ninth inning home runs that pulled Boston within 2Vj games of Baltimore, a surprising turn of events. Petrocelli's homer, a three- run shot with one out in the ninth, sent the Red Sox winging past Detroit 8-7 for their seventh consecutive victory, about one hour after Pinson's. blast with two out in the ninth gave The Standings By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS National L.agu.

Now, after starting the season behind the heavily-favored Orioles, then .overtaking them only to fadl back again, Boston's latest upswing has put new fire into the race. The same can't be said in the West where the Kansas City' Royals beat the California Angels 7-2 and still stand a distant 9Ms games -behind the idle leader, Oakland. In other AL games, Washington trimmed the New York Yankees 3-1 and the Chicago White Sox stopped Milwaukee 6-4.

Two runs on a ground out and pinch-hitter Phil Gagliano's single had pulled the Sox even 5-5 in the eighth.

But Frank Baker doubled in two runs with two out to tie the game in the eighth, and then Pinson unloaded. Palmer, who struck out 13, and McDowell, who fanned 11, each left after eight innings.

Donohue-Unser Duel at Pocono MOUNT POCONO, Pa. (AP) — Super road racer Mark Donohue, looking for his first triumph in Indianapolis'type championship competition, takes on the famed 'Unser brothers in another head-to- head duel Saturday in thie Schaefer 500-mile race at rough, tough Pocono International Raceway. It is the inaugural race at 'the new $6 million facility built in the heart of Pennsylvania's Po- ccno Mountain vacation land. And it is expected to draw at least 100,000 to an area served by two-lane roads thai obviously were not built for traffic jams. The race gets under way at 12 p.m., with Donohue, the Media, Pa., protege of ex-racer Roger Penske, starting his gu- noco-sponsored McLaren on thie pole. The 32-year-old two-time U.S. iroad racing champ posted a four-lap qualifying speed of 172.393 miles per hour. The Unsers, Bobby and Al, have the other front row spots, But even without Donahue's presence, the two brothers have had their own baittle for UNSAC supremacy going for almost two years now. Bobby, ctaiving for the now retired Dan Gurney in an Olso- nite Eagle, was the No. 2 qualifier at 171.847 m.p.h. Bobby hasn't won an .event since June 16, 1970, but has finished second to his brother no less than five times since then. He also was runnerup to Al for the UNSAC driving title last year. Al, two years younger than Bobby at 32, is the hottest driver presently in American racing. The stocky, dark-haired speedster won his second Indianapolis 500 in a row on May 29, and comes here with five triumphs in six starts. He also is among auto racing's biggest winners, taking home almost $750,000 in 15 months. He qualified one of Parnelli Jones' Colt-Fords, the No. l Johnny Lightning Special, at 170.365 m.p.h. and on Wednesday turned laps over the 2.5 mile tniangle-shaped course at speeds near that figure with a full load of fuel. radiating confidence alter Drago's performance. "Who says we can't win it?" he asked. "They haven't conceded the psnmamt to aiiiyone amd as lm>g as they don't we've got a chance. Lemon said the series wiiitih the Angels was an important oime from the standpoint of restoring the Royals' confidence. "We. bad just lost seven in a row and our faeads were down a IMe," he said. "I liked the way we bounced back. We did it beifoire when we lost four sifcraight and we wenit inito one of our biggest surges. Maybe we'l do 4i aigate." While Drago was recording his eighibh victory in 12 decisions, toe was receiving ll-jhit support from his mates. Amos Otis was the leader, driving on three rums with a homer, his 13th, and a double while Paul Schaal coatribuited a ki&y twoMrun double 'in the fourth inning when the Royals scored 'three itames to >smap a 2-2 tie. They scored four times in the ninitih against Fred Lz-sher to make it a rout. Th© Angiefe managed a pair of inns in tlhe 'second inindng on singles by John Stephemson, Ken McMulim and Tony Con- igMaro plus a rus-scoring grounder by Sandy Alomar.

(AP) United States men's track and field forces aim to build a solid lead over the Russians today and avoid a repeat of the defeat they suffered last year in the Soviet Union. Coach Dave Maggard's team counts heavily on the 100-meter dash, which the United States did not win last year, the 110- vault and the shot put during the opening program of the USA-USSR World Ail-Star Meet at the University of California's Edwards Stadium. Scoring will be on a dual meet basis between the United States and Russia, and the United States and the All-Statw. The Russians objected to a play for a triangular meet SCOT- ing system, and it was abandoned. In the Men's competition, most observers figure the meet will be close, with an advantage to the Russians in the gal's division. The World All Stars, with some great individual performers, are not figures «s strong over-all. Dr. Delano Meriwether, the 28-year-old hematologist, and Jim Green provided the United States speed in the 100, facing Russia's Valeriy Borzov, who won the event a year ago, ;md Aleksandr Korneliuk. , Rod Milburn, who last week cracked the world record with a 13.0 in the 120-yard high hurdles, and Ron Draper, who placed second to Milburn in the collegiate and AAU championships, are favored strongly in the 110-meter high hurdles. Jan Johnson and Dave Roberts hold 'the hopes in the pole vault. Johnson, the 1970 NCAA champion from Kansas, won the AAU meet last week, clearing 17 feet. Roberts, of Rice, bad the same height but more misses getting to it. Russia's vaulters, Yurly Isa kov and Gennadly Gusyev, J HENRY HALL AGENCY FOR HOLIDAY THINKING — "IF IVERYONE" If everyone who drives • ear could l!a a month in bed With broken bones and stitched up wounds, or fractures of th« head, And there endure the agonies that many people do, They'd n«ver need preach safety any more to me or you.

And see him th<are unnconscious, never knowing what took place The law and rules of traffic I am sure we'd soon embrace. If everyone could meet the wife and children left behind, And step into the darkened home where once the sunlight shined. And look upon "Th« Vacant Chair" where Daddy used to sit, 1 am sure such reckless drivers would be forced to think a bit. If everyone who takes the wheel would say a little prayer, And keep in mind those in the car depending on his care, And make a vow and pledge himself to never take a chance, The Greatest Crusade for safety, then would suddenly advance. Snitched from Iowa Dtpt. of Public Safety. bettered 17 with Isakov bidding the Russian record ,at 17-5. Both Johnson and Roberts tave gone higher than that. World shot put record holder Randy Matson was so upset when be lost the AAU championship that he returned to the ring late in the evening to work on his form last Saturday. Maitson, .with a lifetime world record best of 71-5V2, teams with Karl Salb of Kansas, the collegiate .and AAU champion, facing Romas Plunge and Valeriy and Volkin of Russia. Salb has thrown 67-2»/4, while the Russians have best marks of 63-7 and 64-2V2 respectively. Today's program lists five decathlon events plus 10 finals for the men and seven for the women. In the women's 100, both Iris Davis of Tennessee State and Pat Hawkins of Brooklyn have better times than Nadyerhda Besfamilnaya and Marina Ni kiforova of Russia. On the other hand, Lyudmila Braghina and Tamara Pan- gelova of the Soviet Union have run 1,500 meters faster than Uncle Sam's best-Doris Brown of Seattle. The men's 10,000-meter tun matches AAU chainnion Frank Shorter and Gerry Lindgren against Mikolay Sviridov and Valdimir Afonin of Russia. Juan Martinez of Mexico and John Farrington of Australia race for the World All-Stars over the crushed volcanic rock track. Lindgren first came to international notice when he bested the Russians at 1.0,000 meters as « high school senior in 1964^ The Russians appear strongest in the men's throwing events and the jumps. So Uncle Sam hopes to pile up points in the dashes and hurdles for 4his meet with its 4 p.m. PDT start. Scoring will be on a basis of 5-3-2-1.
