Keane will be happy to revise his line-up - inserting Mantle alongside Tom Tresh and Roger Msris in the outfield - if Mickey feels he's ready when Detroit invades Yankee Stadium Tuesday. The Houston. Astros trimmei the Tigers 6-4 on Jim Wynn's three-run homer in the eighth inning and the Chicago Cubi defeated the Cleveland Indian 9-5 in 12 innings in Fnda> night's other exhibition play The. ..Cincinnati Reds-Chicag White Sox game at Knoxille Tenn., only daytime actio scheduled, was rained out.

"But my arm felt very good. I igured I had to start, sometime and it might as well be here. It loused things up in an exhibi- ion game, it wouldn't matter." Mantle didn't throw anybody out but the Braves didn't take any extra bases on his no-longer strong right arm. He handled several routine chances in left ield, mad* three soft but accurate throws to the infield and ined his first hit of the spring- an RBI single in the. fifth • in four trips to the plate.

(AP) -Thli Could be the first Masters title taken by in outsider since 1946 if the winds continue to whistle Over Augusta National's trying layout. Two Of the entriM Wnsidered least likely to win were ahead of the pack today after the winds helped tam* such touted title bidders as Jack Nicklaus, who in perfect weather a year ago captured the crown . with a record. 271 strokes. . The big belter, who Most his putting touch, s6ared t6 a 76 in the secbhd rtuhd Friday and was overtaken by Paul Harney, an occasional tournament player from New England, and Peter Butler, a burly Britisher who likes the wind. * * * They grabbed the lead with 3»-hol* totals of 413 although neither was mentioned as a possible title threat before the famed golf tournament started. Favorites such as Arnold Palmer say the wind makes it any. body's tournament. Palmer, Don January, an( Doug Sanders - tied a stroke off the pace at 144 with Bob Rosburg and Nicklaus - were hoping the wind would go down Butler, accustomed to steadj winds at his home club in Birm ingham, England, was hoping i would keep whipping over the course. A golf pro since he was 16, Butler has played in the last two Masters. He finished in a tie for 13th in 1964, when he shot himself out of contention with a 75 oh the final round. Nicklaus didn't about the wind, .but January did. The slender Texan, who rushed out in 34 stroke* and was in front of the field at the time, said he couldn't maintain his putting balance when the wind stiffened in the afternbon. He bOgeyed four holes in.the back nine, finishing with a^73. Palmer and Sanders b6th.shOt 70s. Palmer, four-time champion of the tournament, started One Of his famed charge* on the ront nine with birdies on.the econd, sixth, seventh and ighth holes and had a 32 going out. Gary Player of South Africa, who W6n the title in 1961, soared o a 77 and his 151 total barely made the cutoff, which trimmed the field to 84 players who were n the low 44 or ties or had scores within 10 strokes of the leader.

But Montreal's Toe Blake and Toronto's Punch Imlach hope the condition is only"a temporary one. Blake and Imlach talked about how tight their teams had been in the opener of their best of seven semifinal playoff wmle they prepared fortonighl's second game. The Canadiens won the opener 4-3 on Jean Beliveau's late goal in a game that left both coaches less than pleased. "It was a sloppy game by both clubs," said Blake after sending his team through an hour-long workout at the Forum Friday morning. "There was quite a bit of pressure out there and you could see it the way both clubs were handling the puck." Imlach agreed. "We gave the ; puck away too many times. We didn't play we ii," he said!. ' With the. opener out of the way, both coaches hope their clubs can settle down and play steadier hockey. •*•• * * •• J While the Canadiens spent! {our day* waiting for the series to begin, they have, precious title time, on their, hands now. Blake has .the players lodged at a Laurentian mountain hideaway and has. been transporting them back and.forth for. workouts and games. It's al# hour bus trip each way; but the coach believes it's worth the grind. "It's important to keep the club together and up there they have no pressure on them for ticket* and such," he said.

Johnson is in Texas for an Easier holiday and there has been no definite word about his plans for interrupting his vacation to attend the game. Howver, he might just want to take crack at being a winner. Pete Richert will try to get he Senators back on the victory ide when he starts against Cleveland's Sam McDowell, the jandy Koufax of the American League. The Reds, who also iave lost their last-two openers, irobably will send fireballing jammy Ellis against Jack Fisher of the Mets. Few changes in the game will be noticed while tradition reigns Monday.
