By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer Catfish Hunter beat the heat Jn the seventh inning but Fritz Peterson didn't cool off until the eighth. Kansas City's Hunter, work- Ing with only two days rest in 85-degree weather at Baltimore Monday, pitched six strong innings as the Athletics snapped the American League - leading Orioles' winning streak at seven with a 9-6 victory. New York's Peterson, meanwhile, rivaled 'toe 95-degree temperature at Yankee Stadium by pitching 7 1-3 perfect innings in a 5-2 victory over Chicago thai' gained the Yanks a split of their holiday doubleheader. Hunter, 20 years old and Kangas 'City's biggest winner with eight victories, yielded four hits and three runs — two of them unearned — before going out for a pinch hitter in the seventh, when Dick Green's three - run homer gave the A's their winning margin. Manager Alvin Dark said he hadn't planned on Hunter going all the way because of the heat and the young right-hander's lack of rest. Hunter beat Detroit 6-4 in his previous start last Friday. * * * Peterson, a 24-year-old rookie, retired the first 22 batters he faced before his own error ended the string and John Romano's single broke up the no-hit bid. He finished with a two-hitter and his seventh victory in 13 decisions. The young left-hander, a fast worker who has said, "I like to get a game over with so I can find out who won," dispatched the White Sox on 87 pitches. Only 20 were called balls. The White Sox took the first game 5-0 behind the six-hit pitching of left-hander Gary Peters. Elsewhere, the California Angels whipped Detroit 11-6, Minnesota edged Cleveland 5-4 and Washington divided a twin bill with Boston, winning the first game 64 and losing the nightcap 1-0. The Athletics, who have won four of their last five, jumped to a 9-3 lead over the Orioles, Green leading the way with five RBI. He batted twice during a Six-run rally in the fifth, driving jn the first run with a single and delivering another when he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. Russ Snyder homered for the Orioles, who closed the gap with three runs in the ninth. * * * Peterson threw wildly after fielding Jerry Adair's roller with one out in the eighth and Romano followed with his ground single. Ken Berry then doubled in one run and Lee Elia sent across me other with a Sacrifice fly. Peterson's third inning single triggered a three-run rally, Lou Clinton singling across a pair, and Jake Gibbs knocked in two more with a single in the fifth as the Yankees rolled up a 5-0 lead in the second game. Don Buford unloaded a two- run inside-the-park homer and J. C. Martin rapped two run- scoring singles, leading Chica- go's first-game attack. The Angels struck for five runs in the eighth inning, Jose Cardenal and Jim Fregosi capping the rally with homers, and Banded the Tigers their third setback in a row. Cardenal hit a ;hree-run homer, Fregosi a two- j run shot. Joe Adcock and Jack' Warner also homered for California. it * * Bob Allison pinch hit a two- run homer in the eighth inning, snapping a 3-3 tie, and Dwight Siebler rescued winner Jim Kaat in the ninth as the Twins ended a seven-game losing .streak. Harmon Killebrew hit a iwo-run homer for Minnesota and Fred Whitfield clubbed a Siree-run homer for the Indians.

The Senators scored all their runs in tlis second inning of the opener, Ken McMullen's homer triggering the outburst. By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer A plastic shield covers Ron Santo's left cheek, but National League pitchers could use a cover to shield them from Santo. The All-Star third baseman returned to the Chicago line-up Monday for the first time since June 26 and rapped four hits in six at-bats as the last-place Cubs split a doubleheader with second-place Pittsburgh. Santo collected two singles and a homer in the Cubs' 7-5 first-game loss, then came back Harrison Wins Three Harrison School's Pony Leaguers won three games over the long Fourth weekend. Yesterday aftrenoon, the Harrison senior pony leaguers defeated a semi-pro team from Number Nine, 9-6. Jimmy Moore was the winner. Last night, the juniors defeated Dell at Southside Park, 4-3, Bobby Wayne Cook, the winner, and the seniors took Dell, 11-1, with Ken Andrew on the hill.

The 26-year-old slugger accomplished all that in his first appearance since a pitch from New York's Jack Fisher fractured his left cheek bone June 26. "The doctor said if I could see I could play," said Santo, whose cheek was protected by a special plastic shield. "My left eye ooks pretty bad, but I could see. Some of the Pirates kept asking, 'Boy, that eye looks bad. Can you see out of it?' "I guess I proved I could." Santo especially proved it in the seventh inning of the nightcap with two Cubs on base, the game tied 4-4 and darkness moving in on light-less Wrigley Field. "I set myself to hit Don Cardwell's first pitch if it were any where near the plate," Santo related. "It was getting dark and I knew in my own mind that the umpires were going to call the game. His first pitch as a fast ball, and I let go at it. It was a great thrill." The single increased Santo's average to .319, fifth best in the league, and gave him an average of .388 during his streak, which started June 1. In other NL games, St. Louis defeated San Francisco 6-2 before losing 3-2, Los Angeles nipped Cincinnati 2-1, Atlanl edged Houston 3-2 and New York swept Philadelphia 9-6 and 8-1. * * * The Pirates won the opener, despite Santo's two singles and a homer, on the three-run homer of Willie Stargell and the two- run blast of Gene Alley. Home runs by Phil Gagliano, Lou Brock and Mike Shannon sent San Francisco's Juan Marichal to his fourth defeat against 13 victories. Curt Flood added a two-run single for the Cardinals, who defeated Marichal for the second time in six days. The Giants came back in the nightcap, though, as Gaylord Perry scattered seven hits for his 12th victory against one defeat. Shannon recorded only the second homer off Perry this season, but Perry helped his own cause by lacing two singles, scoring one run and driving in another. Los Angeles' Don Sutton pitched a five-hitter and won his : irst game since June 2. The Dodgers snapped a tie and senl the Reds to their sixth straighl defeat when Ron Fairly doubled in the sixth and scored as John Roseboro singled. Joe Torre tripled and scored on Frank Boiling's ground out in the seventh inning, breaking Atlanta's 2-2 tie with Houston Torre also doubled across a run in the first inning in helping Ken Johnson with a four-hitter. Ron Swoboda smashed a horn er and a triple, driving in five runs in New York's first-game triumph which halted Philadel phia's six-game winning streak Bob Shaw didn't finish but stil gained his fifth victory in six decisions with the Mets.
