t^age Four (ARK.) stAii Sports Thursday, September 19, It's called the inverted head-knocker ALEast: three-way race By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles arc still running 1-2 in the American league East race, only the Orioles arc closing fast in the stretch ... and here come the Boston Red Sox on the outside. Those three embattled baseball teams moved closer together in the nerve-jangling pennant race after the Orioles defeated the Yankees 10-4 and the Red Sox whipped the Detroit Tigers 8-5 Wednesday night. The night's results left the Yankees with a tenuous, half- game lead over the Orioles and left the Red Sox within striking distance at 2Vfe games behind in third place. The Red Sox got an extra push in the stretch run from rookie Fred Lynn, only in his .second year of professional ball. He collected four hits, including a double and triple, and drove in four runs. In the other American league games, the Oakland A's beat the Kansas City Royals 54; the California Angels beat the Texas Rangers 4-1 in the first game of a doubleheader before losing the second, 2-0; the Cleveland Indians tripped the Milwaukee Brewers 6-3 and the Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 3-1. Winning for only the seventh time in the last 24 games, the Red Sox kept alive their flickering hopes for the East title. Detroit's Al Kaline had a home run, double and a single, leaving him only four hits shy of becoming the 12th player in history to reach the 3,000 mark. The double was the 497th of his' career, tying him with Sam Rice for 22nd place on baseball's all-lime list Orioles 10, Yankees 4 Mike Cuellar became a 20- gamc winner for the forth time as HalLimorc- broke a tie with seven runs in the sixth inning and crushed New York. The triumph was Baltimore's 17th in the past 22 games. The Orioles' big inning against three pitchers included three walks — two with the bases loaded — three singles and consecutive two-run doubles by Rich Coggins and Bob- ch Cogjjins and Bobby Grich. Angels 4-0, Rangers 1-2 Bruce Bochte and Joe Lahoud tagged 23-game winner Ferguson Jenkins for successive home runs in the first inning and California went on to beat Texas in the first game of their doubleheader. Steve Hargan pitched a three - hitter and rookie Tom Robson singled in two runs as Texas beat California in the second game. A's 5, Royals 4 Reggie Jackson singled in two runs during a four-run fifth inning, helping Oakland beat Kansas City. Indians 6, Brewers 3 Frank Robinson's 21st home run of the season and first for Cleveland capped a four-run rally in the sixth inning and gave the Indians their victory over Milwaukee.

As for the WFL move, the league is still hunting a new owner for the former Houston club and the team apparently will be on a play now, pay later plan.

(AP) — The Arkansas Razorbacks are scheduled to work on their defense today in preparation for Saturday's game against Oklahoma State University. Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles said Wednesday he was concerned about his Razorback defense's failure to adapt properly to the wishbone formation. "Looking at the films from yesterday's (Tuesday's) practice showed that the defense is still unsure working against the wishbone," Broyles said. The Razorbacks practiced in pads Wednesday. "We looked so poor yesterday and today (Wednesday) that we decided it would be best to get another day of hitting in before the game," Broyles said. Broyles said he would not name the starting quarterback until Saturday. Quarterbacks Mark Miller and Scott Bull will, as last week, be used interchangeably regardless of who starts, Broyles said. The punting chore for Saturday's game against Oklahoma State University may be split between Tommy Cheyne and Mike Kirkland. liever Mike Cosgrove. Then, Ron Cey greeted reliever Ken Forsch with a double, and Rick Auerbach was sent in as a pinch runner. Joe Ferguson followed with a single to right, but Gross fired a perfect strike to the plate, cutting down Auerbach. In the 10th, with Charlie Hough pitching for the Dodgers, Gross cracked a single and raced home with the winning run on Bob Watson's double.

Foreman receiving folk medicine for injury By JOHN VINOCUR Associated Press Writer KINSHASA, Zaire (AP) — A homemade treatment for cuts will receive its first test Sunday with the future of a $30 million boxing extravaganza hanging in the balance. The folk medicine is being tried on heavyweight champion George Foreman, who stunned : the fight world in a simple sparring session Monday. He '.JlHcurred a one r inch cut over his right eye, forcing postponement —apparently until Oct. 30—of the scheduled Sept. 25 meeting with former champ Muhammad Ali. Foreman's manager, Dick Sadler, put an admittedly "homemade" remedy on the injury rather than allow it to be stitched closed. The bandage likely will be removed Sunday and the first real indication of its success should become apparent. "If things look right then," said Sadler, "it will be three weeks before the area can take a blow." That meant a delay until at least Oct. 13 for the title bout, although promoter Hank Schwartz reported from New York later Wednesday the official date would be Oct. 30. That would set fight time at 10p,m., EOT, on Tuesday, Oct. CHICAGO (AP) - Bill Roetz- heim Wednesday was named athletic director at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Reotzheim, 37, has been gymnastics coach at the school the past six years and succeeds Walter G. Versen, the acting athletic director for four years. 29 in the United States. But there was no immediate confirmation of the date by the Zaire government. Foreman, it appeared Wednesday, was ready to wait as long as necessary. "My health comes first," the champion said at his first public appearance since Monday. "No dollar is worth a closed fist when it comes to my eye and physical condition. "'All the'dates mentioned are important and I'm willing to go through with them. But I'll decide when, because George Foreman is the doctor." Another doctor, meanwhile, criticized Sadler's treatment of what may be a very expensive injury. Dr. Ferdinand Pacheco, Ali's ring physician, doubted the reliability of Sadler's procedures. Tournament to begin Fair Park will be the site of the first Hope City Tennis Tournament this Saturday and Sunday. The tournament is being sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Department. Preceding the finals of the tournament, Gary Snay, tennis pro at the Texarkana Country Club, will play an exhibition match against another Texarkana professional. Snay will also be taking applications for private, semiprivate and group lessons which will be offered in Hope. The lessons will cover the basics of tennis. "Every fight Foreman has from now on, he risks having it pop open," Pacheco said. The butterfly-type bandage, he said, provides "a swampy, boggy area underneath the scar tissue. Ali, however, attacked the cut as he would in the ring against Foreman. But his punches were verbal. "I'll let the Mummy (Foreman) wear a headgear if he wants. I'll sign a contract that I won't go near his eye and I'll beat him anyway," he jabbed. The delay of the fight has thrown into chaos the one and two-week charter tours to this African country to see the fight — not to mention the hundreds of closed-circuit outlets that had planned to show it elsewhere. Davidson praises f om JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) -| Coach Bill Davidson had praise for the four M members of the Arkansas State University defense Wednesday. I think all four of them came on strong today, Davidson said, referring to linebackers Mike Malham and Jerry Mucken- sturrn, nose guard Bill Muzik and defensive tackle Eddie Morgan. "They looked pretty good against the run, and they were all effective in our goal-line work," Davidson said. Davidson indicated that today's drills would be light, probably in shorts, as the Indians prepare for a filmed scrimmage Friday. The Indians, who open Sept. 8, against Louisiana Tech, are to begin recognition work Monday on the Bulldogs offensive and defensive sets. •—^ ^ TA • Sears Time is running out on these -..fl 8 PRICES 19= COLOR PORTABLE *379' 5 • Adjustable OM Bwttoi Color • Black Matrix Scrtu • 1007, Solid Slat* Ckassb ICUT $45Component Stereo Soum^System f£ $142.88 ]CUT $10 2-speed, 3-tyde WASHER" Matching l-speed, 3-CycU DRYER -..o^c; CUT M it IM ra $429.95 WRESTLING EMMET, ARKANSAS FRIDAY NIGHT SEPT. 20,8:30 P.M.
