Reggie Jackson Keeps Temper While Blasting Seattle Pilots With Barrage Of Timely Br THE ASSOCM1ED PRESS Reggie Jackun, the ilugger, cooled oft his temper, but not his bat. and floored the Seattle Pilots for the second night in a row. Keeping his fists wrapped only around the bat. Jackson slugged two home runs for three runs batted in and singled in another as the Oakland Athletics routed Seattle 14-2 Friday night. Jackson, bothered by a slump, had only returned to the line-up the day and hammered two homers then in a 6-4 triumph over the Minnesota Twins. But in that one, angry Reggie stuck his big fist in the face of pitcher Dick Woodson. starting a free-for-all, after Woodson decked him with two pitches following the homers. And Jackson w»a ejected from the game. This time, Jackson was hit by a pitch after his single and homers, but he kept his cool and was around at the finish. Elsewhere, Boston crashed three homers to beat Detroit 5-4, Washington whacked two in routing Cleveland 10-3 and New York added two at the Yankees tripped Baltimore 7-2 for unbeaten Mel Sottlemyre's fifth victory. The Chicago White Sox edged Minnesota 6-5 and California upended Kansas City 6-3 on Jim Fregosi's three run single. Lefty Jackson's fifth homer of the season came in the first inning off loser Gary Bell and went over the left field wall. No. 6 sailed over the right field fence with a man on in the seventh after he singled in a run in a five run fourth inning. Dick Green's three-run shot in the ninth and pitcher Jim Nash's single and triple for two-runs added to the 13-hit attack that made Nash's second triumph in three decisions easy. He gave up seven hits, including a two run homer to Rich Rollins. Billy Conigliaro. Mike Andrews and Rico Petrocelli kept Boston's big bats booming as they made it 24 homers in nine games for the Red Sox.

In the final two drews also doubled home the decisive run in the seventh. Jim Lonborg. making his first start since opening day, yielded eight hits and solo homers to Jim Northrup and Mickey Stanley before getting his first victory. He wasn't around at the fin ish. however, as two singles with one out in the eighth drove him out. The Tigers got two runs before Vicente Homo shut the door. Frank Howard hit a two-run homer, his seventh, and drove in two more runs with singles and Brant Alyea socked a two- run shot and a run-scoring double as the Senators staggered Cleveland with its eighth consecutive loss. Ken Harrelson's first homer for Cleveland offered little consolation for the Indians, who lost for the 13th time in 14 games. Jimmie Hall's first homer tied the game for the Yankees and Joe Pepitone's two-run blast, his sixth, broke a 1-1 deadlock in the fourth against Jim Hardin, 0-3, as Baltimore's four-game winning streak ended. After pinch hitters Walt Wil with third place finishes. "Ourjliams and Ron Hansen stroked consecutive singles off loser Ron Perranoski to tie the game in the ninth, rookie Carlos May ana me r ayeuevme nunaogs came home with one of each following conference trials here Friday. The Bulldogs took the top prize in the tennis competition. Coach Bobby Nix's track aggregation battled Northside neck- and-neck to the final two events before taking a second. T h e golfers would up the day with a third. Second - s e e d e d David Beauchamp pulled off the biggest upset of the day as he roared to a 6-4, 6-4 decision over top-ranked L e o n Marks of Northside. Beauchamp lost only nine games in three matches during his afternoon's work. The Bulldogs added the team trophy when Raniiy Jackson, a semifinalist in t h e singles, teamed with Beauchamp for a G-3. 6-1 triumph over Bill Vinson and Marks in the doubles competition.
