Gail Hopkins completed the assault with a right field blast as Chicago doubled its total run production in four previous games. "No doubt there are going to some home runs in this ball park." White Sox manager Al Lopez understated after the slugfest. "Good pitching w i l l hold anybody." countered Joe Schul7. the Pilots' pilot, pointing to his. club's 7-0 and 5-1 victories over the Sox Friday and Saturday.

Palmer, who had not pitched for Baltimore since Sept. 19, 1967. because of recurring shoulder trouble, fired a four-hitter in the Orioles' first game victory, striking out Howard four times. Phoebus then spun a two-hitter, getting Howard on strikes twice, as the Orioles blanked the Senators for the third straight game. Dave McNally had shut them out 9-0 Friday night. Frank Robinson's third horn er, a two-run shot off Joe Coleman, decided the opener. Paul Blair and Merv Rettenmund homered in the nightcap. Howard, who drilled four home runs in Washington's first three games and hit nine against the Orioles last season, went l-for-14 in the four-game series, fanning eight times.
