ma - THE PLAY'S THE THING - Two of these three Philadelphia Phillies came up with the big play. Dick Groat (upper left) snared a line drive at third and second baseman Cookie Rojas (bottom) made a diving 'slab of a hard grounder. But left fielder Richie Allen gave a long chase for a foul fly only to have the ball pop from his glove. Twins Just Miss HR Record Breaks Up Rally with Double By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer The Minnesota Twins trailed Kansas City 4-3 in the seventh inning when suddenly Rich Rollins homered. Then Zoilo Versalles homered, and Tony Oliva, and Don Mincher, and Harmon Killebrew. That brought up Jimmie Hall, with a chance to set a major league record for most homers in one inning. "I knew about the record," said Hall. "The announcer told everyone that we had tied the record when I was standing in the batter's box. It upset me a little. 1 know if I was the pitcher I'd be bearing down that much more." Hall eventualy lashed a pitch that hit high off the fence and settled for a double. * ¥ * "I'm going to fine Hall $100 for breaking up a rally," laughed Minnesota Manager Sam Mele, who hasn't had too much opportunity to do that this season. Despite the homer hammering and the 9-4 victory, Mele's defending American League champions still are in sixlh place — three games under the .500 mark and nine games behind front - running Baltimore. While the Twins still were trying to reach the first division, the Orioles took over first place from Cleveland by beating Washington twice while the Indians and New York Yankees were rained out. Baltimore won a game thai had been suspended Wednesday night, 8-6, and then came back for a 4-2 victory in the regularly scheduled game. In (he only other American League game played, Detroit battered Boston 9-1. * * * The A's pulled out to a 4-0 lead against the Twins with Lary Stahl's bases-loaded triple the key blow in the first inning uprising against starter Camilo Pascual. Bob Allison doubled in a run in the fifth and Killebrew brought two more across in th esixth with his first homer of the game. Rollins, pinch hitting, started the homer barrage in the seventh with a two-run shot off Catfish Hunter that put the Twins ahead 5-4. Versalels jionv er chased Hunter and brought in Paul Linblad. Linhlad got Sandy Valdespino but Oliva and Mincher followed with homers that brought on John Wyatt. Wyatt was tagged for Killebrew's second homer, then stopped the rally by holding Hall to a double. The Orioles finished off Wednesday night's suspended game against the Senators with a four-run eighth inning rally that wiped out a 6-4 Washington lead. The big blow was Russ Snyder's two-run homer, following a single by Jerry Adair, Camilo Can-eon's double and a game-tying single by Sam Bowens. Boog Powell's 10th home run of the year drove in two runs and lifted Baltimore to a 4-2 victory in the nightcap. Powell's San Fran. .. Angeles Pittsburgh . Phila Houston ...
