MOPE ?AKK.) STAR Saturday, September 28, 19f4 Hope Hftmpttead Coun Star Sports Baseball roundup American League National league By GORDON BEARD AP Sports Writer BALTIMORE (AP) - It was a filling climax to a night of fulilily. With a mighty swing of his bat, muscular Bob Oliver of Ballirnorc ended a 17-inning marathon with a meek infield tapper — but it was enough to drive home Bobby Grich for a 1-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers Friday night. With the bases loaded and one out, Oliver's vicious cut resulted in a roller which third . baseman Don Money couldn't handle as he tried for a barehanded pickup. Grich scored without drawing a throw and suddenly, after four hours and 28 minutes of slruKglintf, the Orioles had extended their lead to one full game over the New York Yankees in the American League's Eastern Division. Each has five Barnes left to play. New York's scheduled game in Cleveland was postponed, and the Yanks must play a doubleheader today while the Orioles engage the Brewers in another single game. Meanwhile, the Oakland A's clinched the pennant in the AL West despite losing to Chicago 3-2. The defending world champion A's won their fourth straight division title when the second-place Texas Rangers dropped a 5-4 decision to Kansas City in 12 innings. And although New York- Cleveland was rained out, the Indians made news by firing their manager, Ken Aspromonte, effective at the end of this season. Elsewhere in the American league, Boston beat Detroit 9-3 and California trimmed Minnesota 3-2. The Orioles left 19 runners stranded, nine in scoring position, before Oliver's merciful ending. Seven of the 12 Brewers stranded had reached second base or beyond. Jim Palmer, the Baltimore starter, allowed four singles before retiring after 12 innings. Jim Colborn of Milwaukee, with an 0-5 lifetime mark against the Orioles, fanned nine and allowed eight hits in 13 innings. Royals 5, Rangers 4 George Brett's run-scoring single in the 12th inning, his fourth hit of the game, gave the Royals the victory and mathematically eliminated the Rangers from the AL West race, giving the A's the division championship. White Sox 3, A's 2 Chicago scored three unearned runs in the first inning, two of them on Brian Downing's single, to beat the A's. But the biggest cheer of the night came when Oakland third baseman Sal Ban do threw out Ken Henderson on a routine grounder in the third inning, and the message, "Oakland Magic Number 0," was pV.ed on the Scoreboard. Red Sox 9, Tigers Boston battered Woodie Fry- rnan for four runs in 'the first inning following a two-hour rain delay and then coasted past the Tigers. Angels 3, Twins 2 Pinch-hitter Doug Howard's two-run single in the seventh inning lifted California to victory over the Twins. National League scores: St. Ixniis 10, Chicago 4; Pittsburgh 2, New York 1; Cincinnati 4, San Francisco 3; Montreal 2, Philadelphia 0; San Diego 3, I jos Angeles 2.

Not even Moses' $3 million Wealth doesn't awe Mary Malone MARY MALONE: "I'm just like other folks, always have been. No better, no worse. By Ira Berkow NEA Sports Editor NEW YORK - (NEA) For Mary Malone, it was a moment of deeply mixed emotions when her son Moses signed that pro basketball contract for an estimated $3 million and became the first player to skip college and go directly from high school ball to the pros. It was a moment of relief since their four-room apartment in that wobbly-looking wooden building in Petersburg, Va., would no longer be under siege from t'h'e 300 plus college recruiters and at least two pro team smoothies. It was also a moment of unarticulated anxiety since Moses is only 19, hadn't been away from home much, and would now be entering worlds unknown to both. Also, she and Moses, her only child, had lived alone together for the last 17 years, since her husband left home. Mrs. Malone is a woman of unremarkable size, but of solid-checkboned, un- astonished demeanor. She is a black woman of the South who has seen incredible changes in this country, starting from the year before Moses was born, when the Supreme Court passed the Brown vs. Board of Education ruling disallowing segregation in the schools and opening doors to integration in all areas of life. And nothing at her Morning Star Baptist Church, which she attends regularly, prepared her or Moses for these 300 men bringing everything from myrrh to incense to,' most of all, gold. You make a better basketball player, however, and the world beats a path to your door. At one point, Moses had to devise signals with friends, in order to answer his door at all: knock four times, pause, knock twice, pause and Knock three more times. Once, a friend screwed up the signals, but finally got in through the window, only to find the 6-11 Moses hiding under his bed. After the New York press conference at which Moses announced he had signed with the Utah Stars of the American Basketball Association, Mary Malone, wearing demure white earrings and a red carnation in her green dress, talked quietly about Moses and their life and their future. "I told Moses," she said, "that if he's happy, I'm happy. It's his life. He has to do with it what he wants." For years she did odd jobs at a home for elderly, wealthy women, earning a maximum of $59 a week. "I always saw to it that Moses had food on the table and a shoe on his foot," she said. "We never had much savings, never more than $25 in the bank — and that was in case he got sick and I'd have enough to get him to the doctor." Today, she works in the local Safeway supermarket, where she wraps and stamps meat, for a salary of $135 a week. Moses' first job came this summer when he worked construction. Before this, Mrs. Malone had help in bringing him up only from two brothers who were sta- SAN DIEGO (AP) — Defensive end Dave Tipton was signed to a National Football League free agent's contract Thursday by the San Diego Chargers. The 6-foot-6, 245-pound Tipton, who played at Stanford, was the fourth-round draft choice of the New York Giants in 1971. In another move, the Chargers waived defensive end Ray Baylor. Sport Shorts and Senate extended the word of praise to Kaline for becoming the 12th player in major league history to accumulate 3,000 hits. LANSING, Mich.

Dietzel has asked to remain as athletic director, a questioin that also will be decided by the trustees.

Sometimes, when money ran low, they'd bring her food. She was asked how it felt now to be the mother of a millionaire. "I just feel good to be a mother," she said. She says that she does not see great changes in her life; she will remain at her job for the time being and she does not feel she has become any kind of celebrity. ("I'm just like other folks, always have been. No better, no worse.") It is rumored that Moses will buy her a house. But she would not confirm that. She seems not to be a domineering mother. She let Moses make his own decisions, with the help of Washington, D.C. lawyer-advisers, Donald Dell and Lee Fentress, who handle several other athletes, including Arthur Ashe (the black tennis star who grew up in nearby Richmond, Va.). Blacks in her day in the South rarely got a chance to enter college. It was a thrilling prospect for her to have Moses so wooed, but blacks in her day rarely had a million dollars either. So either way it seemed that life would be sweeter for her and her son than she ever might have allowed herself to hope or , dream. Yet she is not unaware of the possible corruptions that wealth could work on the soul. When asked if her recent prayers have been answered, she thought for a moment, and then said without smiling, "I think so." (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) sss* MRS.

Little is back in Miami lineup By BRUCE LOWITT AP Sports Writer Miami's Larry Little is back where he should be — or where he should have been if San Diego had seen his potential. And all of the Dolphins are back where they should be — in the victory column. When the Chargers signed Little as a free agent in 1967, they tried him at fullback. It just didn't work. So, after the 1968 season, they dealt him to Miami for a cornerback named Mark Lamb. I-amb never saw one minute of action with San Diego while Little went on to become the National Football League's first $100,000 guard. "The Chargers used me as a guinea pig," he said as Miami prepared for Sunday's game in San Diego. EARN CASH ROYALTIES IN INDUSTRY FOR COMPLETE BETA* Lfc WHITE PHQUE COUECT
