2-F CORPUS CHRISTI TIMES, FrI., Aug. 13, 1971 Dodgers Fumble Chance to Gain Ground By The Associated Press The San Francisco Giants, who have had a hard time beating anyone recently, took a day off and let the Los Angeles Dodgers beat themselves for a change. It was a lift for their spirits, to say nothing of their lead in the National League West. While the Giants didn't play, they improved their lead to four games over Los Angeles when the Dodgers fumbled over a 3-1, 13-inning loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday night. The Los Angeles 1 loss was good news to San Francisco, which had lost eight of 1(1 games and wasted most of a 10-game lead to the hot. Dodgers. Only three other games were played in the National League Thursday night as the Atlanta Braves crushed the Houston Astros 10-5, the St. Louis Cardinals nipped the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 and the San Diego Padres turned back the New York Mets 3-0. ' Despite Thursday night's loss, Los Angeles shortstop Maury Wills feels the Dodgers will e v e n t u a l l y catch the skidding Giants. "I like our chances awfully well," said Wills. "Heck, I Chance To Look Back By The A*socloled Press There is a famous philosophy credited to Satchel Paige that advises you never to look behind b e c a u s e someone might be gaining. But the Baltimore Orioles, leading t h e A m e r i c a n League's East Division by a comfortable e i g h t games, might be tempted to take a peek over their shoulders anyway. There are interesting things going on back there. For example, there is Detroit's Mickey Lolich, hidden by the Vida Blue excitement all season, but suddenly on the threshold of 20 victories for Detroit. And then, there are the New York Yankees, enjoying the best record in the division 19-11 log that has them two games over .500 for the first time all year. The Orioles, unconcerned by the shenanigans behind them, whipped Minnesota 8-2 Thursday night, to maintain their AL East lead. Detroit took over second place with a 4-3 decision over Milwaukee--Lolidi's 19th victory of the season. The Yankees made it eight victories in the last 10 games by sweeping a doubleheader from California 3-0 and 2-1 with the second game going 11 innings. In other AL action, Oakland walloped Boston 9-2, Cleveland downed Chicago G-2 and Kansas City split a doubleheader at Washington, winning the first game 2-0 but dropping the nightcap 2-1. The Orioles jumped on Minnesota's Jim Kaat for three runs before a man was retired in the first inning and coasted over the Twins for a sweep of their three-game series. Lolich pitched a six-hitter and the Tigers broke a tie in the eighth inning with Bill Freehan's triple the big blow to beat Milwaukee. The victory was the Tigers' 13th in the last 17 games and left Lolich with a 19-8 record. The Tiger left-hander has never won 20 games. Mike Kekich limited California to ;our hits in 11 innings and Bobby Murcer's two-out, two strike single drove in New York's winning run in the second game of the doubleheader. Gene Michael, batting for Kekich, had doubled and came around to score on an infield out and Murcer's hit for the deciding run. In the opener, Roy White ripped two singles and a double and Fritz Peterson won his 12th game. Peterson allowed nine hits and had the leadoff man on base in seven of the nine innings but kept the Angela off the s c o r e b o a r d. Bert Campaneris r i p p e d three singles, driving in two runs and scoring two as Oakland whacked Boston, completing a sweep of their series and tumbling the Red Sox to · third place in the interesting East. Ted U h l a e n d e r cracked three straight hits and rookie Kurt Beyacqua tagged his first major league homer, leading Cleveland past Chicago.

Broberg and two relievers combined for the six-hitters. liked them when we were 10 games out. I really did." He's not alone in his thinking. Even Philadelphia. Manager Frank Lucchesi is on his side. "I tabbed the Dodgers this spring and I'm staying with it," he said, frankly, ''the worst part of it is the people in San Francisco are all over me. Don't forget, that's my home." .The Dodgers didn't look like " winners against the Phillies, though. They had .a 1-0 lead in the eighth when, second baseman Steve Garvey's error opened the door for the tying run. Then they wasted scoring opportunities in the the extra innings before Philadelphia's Don Money put it away with a two-run double in the 13th. Rookie Earl Williams unleashed two homers in a four' hit night and knocked in four runs as Atlanta buried Houston under a 16-hit offense. Williams had singled his first two times at bat before blasting a two-run homer in the fourth and a solo shot in the fifth, his 20th and 21st circuit clouts of the year. Wil- liams also had a run-scoring single in the second inning to help Ron Reed coast to his 12th victory in 20 decisions. St. Louis took advantage of shortstop Gene Alley's error to score three unearned runs in the third inning and made them stand up behind Steve Gallon's pitching. . Pittsburgh scored two runs in the first inning but Carlton slammed the door the rest of the way to notch his 16th victory in 22'decisions. : Roberto Clemente delivered a twd : run double before there were any outs, but then Carlton got ou£ of hot water when he struck.out Manny Sanguil- len, Clemente was out trying to steal third and Richie Hebner also went down on strikes.
