• ' ' Boog Is Simply Wild, But Birds Only Split By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Boog Powell had his fancy hitting clothes on, but the Cinderella guy turned out to be Larry Stahl, who brought the Kansas City A's home just before the clock struck midnight. Powell, Baltimore's slugging first baseman who has been on a hitting tear since the beginning of May, tied the American League record by driving in 11 runs in the Orioles' twi-night doubleheader against the A's Wednesday night. But the best the Orioles could do was gain a split, winning the opener 11-0 before Kansas City took the nightcap ftfl when Stahl slipped into the glass slipper and doubled home the winning run in.the llth inning — just before a midnight curfew would have halted play. * * * However, neither Stahl's key hit nor the A's sudden role as spoilers —they've won nine of their last 15 against front-running Baltimore, Detroit and Cleveland — could overshadow the one-man show put on by Powell. The 24-year-old left-handed swinger drove in four runs in the opener with a three-run double and a sacrifice fly, then pushed into high gear in the nightcap and added seven runs batted in with a grand slam homer, a two-run homer and a run-producing double. That tied the AL record for RBIs in a twinbill, accomplished previously only by Earl Averill of Ceveland in 1930 and Jim Tabor of Boston in 1939. It also lifted Powell's average to .301 and raised his RBI total to 66 — one short of the major league leader teammate Brooks Robinson. Elsewhere, California edged Detroit 1-0 in 10 innings, Minnesota nipped Cleveland 4-3, Washington swept the Chicago White Sox 4-3 and 3-2 and Boston took two from the New York Yankees 5-3 and 5-4. * * * Powell's efforts in the first game backed Steve Barber's five-hit pitching, but he coulfln't do it alone in the nightcap. Idie A's trailed 6-2, then mowed ahead with a six-run rally in the eighth. Powell pulled Baltimore back into a tie with a two-run homer with two out in the ninth before the A's finally won it In the llth when Roger Repoz and Stahl doubled. It was Stahl's worth RBI of the game. Angels starter George Brunei allowed only two hits and Boston's Earl Wilson just four through nine innings. California finally broke through against reliever Larry Sherry in the 10th on singles by Tom Satriano and Bob Rodgers around a sacrifice. Tony Oliva and BoM Allison each drove in two runs for the Twins, Allison connecting for a homer off Sam McDowell in the I second inning and Olivia rapping 'a tie-breaking, two-ma double off reliever Dick Rarltitz in the eighth. * * * Don Lock hammered a two- run homer in the first inning of the opener for the Senators, then scored the winning run in the fourth when he singled and scored on Ed Brinfanan's double. Lock walked ancl scored the tying run in the eighth inning of the nightcap, racirjg home when reliever Bob Lock«;r threw Ken McMullen's bunt iway. McMullen came home wSfth the winner on Paul Casanova? s double. The Red Sox grabbed the opener on Dalton. Jones' two-run pinch-hit homer 3n the ninth inning, then rode (ft their nightcap triumph behind Carl Yastrzem- ski, who drove* in three runs with a homer anid a single that snapped a 3-3 tile in the seventh inning. ' By ED SCaiUYLER JR. Associated Pi»,ss Sports Writer Take a strong arm, add lots of pressure and a portion of self- help and yoiu have a Los An- gales Dodgeir pitcher. Claude Osteen fits th.e formula perfect- ly, i Osteen won his sixth game by a one-run margin this season Wednesday night — 1-0 against Cincinnati — and h* drove in the run. In bringing his record to 11-6, Osteen allowed the Reds just three hits and went 2-for-2 to raise his average to .261 with 12 hits in 46 at bats. One of his two singles drove home John Kennedy in the eighth inning. In two of his otber one-run decisions, Osteen who now has three RBI, scored the winning run. * * * 'This is the best first half I've ever had," Osteen said after gaining his second shutout of the year. "I've always pitched a lot better me second half of the season than I did the first." Last year at this time Osteen was only 6-10, but he closed with a rush to finish at 15-15. Coming through with key hits is nothing new for Los Angeles pitchers. Don Drysdale has done it many times in his career, so has Sandy Koufax, a notorious! poor hitter, and rookie Don Sutton is catching on fast. Sutton is hitting .271. Willie Mays smashed a three- run homer to give San Francisco a 3-2 victory over St. Louis and kept the Giants IVt games ahead of second place Pittsburgh, which trounced Chicago 10-5 for its 10th victory in the last 13 games. The New York Mets beat Philadelphia 7-5 and Atlanta walloped Houston 8-1 in -other National League games. Mays' 524th career homer and 19th this season, came off relief pitcher Don Dennis with two men out in the eighth. It left him 10 behind Jimmy Foxx who hit 534 homers, second only to Babe Ruth's 714. Roberto Clemente doubled home two runs and drove in three more with his 13th homer in the Pirates' victory. Donn Clendenon aso got his 13th homer and fourth in'as many games for the Pirates, a two- run shot. * * * Jack Hamilton picked up his NL's Hurlers Have Star Experience eighth save in his last 11 appearances for New York. Ed Kraneppol knocked in three runs with a pair of doubles for the Mets, who exploded for four runs in the seventh'inning. Phil lie pitcher Jim Bunnlng was forced to leave the game in the sixth with a pulled groin muscle. He has an 11-1 record against the Mets. Joe Torre hit his 21st homer and an RBI single and Mack Jones homered and tripled for the Braves. Don Schwall, making his first start since being traded to Atlanta by Pittsburgh, worked 6 1-3 innings for the victory.

Rodgers sank seven birdies and had 10 one-putt greens on Muirfield's 6,887-yard course, which had until now subjugated the great par busters. His 66 tied the record of Henry Cotton in 1948 but in fact was a new one for the new layout. Two new tees were constructed and 31 yards added to the old links this year. * * * Rodgers had a cautious 74 Wednesday but with continued good weather he pulled out the long, daring game this morning and it paid off. Julius Boros of Mid Pines, N.C., shot a 71 to move into second place in the 36-hoe standings with 144. Ton Lema, San Leandro, Calif., strayed off line and after fighting the rough and an unwilling putter he came in with 38:38—76 for a two day total of 147. By RONALD THOMPSON MUIRFIELD, Scotland (AP) — If the big hitters of golf ar* finding it hard t» take Muirfield in the British Open championship, the reason may be that Muirfield decided to take them in advance. That belief was voiced today by Byron Nelson, th* Texan who won virtually everthing in Sight from 1939 to 1943 and still holds the record of sweeping 11 straight tournaments. Nelson, a spectator on these Scottish links now that illness prevents him from swinging a club, said: "This course has been made impossible for the real long hit- TEXAS LEAGUE By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS W.

With all that massive rough crowding in on the narrow fairways, the penalties for being off target are too severe." It was precisely this consideration that made such stars as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Doug Sanders, and Tony Lema concentrate on power irons instead of driving off the tees in Wednesday's first round. Nelson, non-playing captain of the American Ryder Cup team which beat the British last year at Birkdale, England, said: "Accuracy with the first shot must pay off here at Muirfield. Anything else is trouble." Thinking the same way, Nicklaus used plenty of long irons to shoot a first-round one-under- par 70 over the 6,887-yard links beside the Firth of Forth. With 54 holes to go he shared the lead with British Ryder Cupper Jimmy Hitchcock, and the betting makes the Columbus, Ohio, master a solid favorite to keep ahead.
