After 17 Innings Chicago- Mfey, A«fl.1M*n · 11 OAKLAND (AP) - Attar «i long night's Jomnoy Into today, the Chicago While Sox and Oakland A'» settled nothing In the American League West race. ' "I don't earc how long the game lasts, as long as we win," fluid weary Sox Manager Chuck Tanner after tho battle for first place (hat began Thursday night and was suspended early today at 3 3 after 17 Innings. 'It will be 'sudden death," A's Manager' 'DicK Williams said, looking ahead to the 18th Inning, which wi1l start tonight and be followed by the second game of the crucial series. Elsewhere, Detroit remained one-half game ahead of Baltimore In the AL East despite a 1-0 loss to New York-lho third- place Vankccs .arp only two back--when 1 ' Baltimore suffered a similar 1-0 setback a t , t h e hands of Milwaukee, California downed Minnesota 3-1 in the only other contest. , I Pat Kelly put the Sox ahead 3-2 in the top of the 13th, leaping off with'a triple and scoring later on Bob Locker's wild pitch. ' But the A'x Angel Mangual, guilty of two throwing errors during;:Chicago's two-run' scc-| ond Inning, hit a one-out double Into the bottom of the 13th and scored oniplnch hitter Gene Te- riaee's two-out single off Steve Kealoy. /Both managers virtually depleted their supply of pitchers in the first 17 innings of the game, with Williams using eight and Tanner six.

(AP Wircphoto) Free Kick kale Helps Bears HOUSTON (AP) -- Refusing to, accept a tie, . the Chicago Bears used a seldom used rule Thursday night to pave the way for a seven-yard field goal by Mac Percival and a 20-17 exhi bition football victory over,the Houston Oilers. l ! Larry Rowden,'Chicago linebacker, covered a free kick at the Houston one to enable Percival to kick the winning three- pointer with just three seconds to play. Confused Oilers'" defenders made no attempt to coyer the frea ball and their 'new head coach, Dill : Peterson, imm'e- «: diately accepted the blame. "It was our fault," Peterson k v said. "Wo simply had not discussed the free kick'situation." ' The weird ending had · its · " start when Chicago made a fair The TIMES Is The Best Buy For Your Advertising Dollarl catch of a punt with' 25 seconds, 10 play. Under both pro and collegiate rules, a team receiving:a fair catch has several options, ip- eluding the free kick; for 'placing the ball in play. But on a tree kick the ball becomes-' a free ball, meaning:any player on'the field can clailn it by covering it. ( Percival made the free 'kick while using a tee at the Bears' 40. Had the ball gone above the uprights, Percival would, have had a' 60-yard field goal. Had Rowden covered it in the end zone instead of on the one he would have had a.touchdown. , Linzy Cole was among the Oilers who stood in the end zone and watched Rowden cover the ball. "Someone -- I don't: k n o w who--kept yelling, 'Don't touch the ball! Don't touch the ball 1," Cole said after the game.
