4G CORPUS CHRISTI TIMES, Wed., Aug. 18, 1971 ECURITY ro Two Kinds of Greeting Stealing a Base Kathy Lindbfad, wife of Washington pitcher Paul Lindbiad, literally stole a base in the annual softball game between wives and husbands last night, ignoring her spouse's pleas and those of shortstop Toby Harrah ( l e f t ) . BeJow, Paul takes things -- and Kathy -- in his own hands and carts her -- and the base -- off the field. (AP Wirephoto) By Th* Associated Preti The patriotic' Oakland A's met with President Eichard M. Nixon Tuesday afternoon and a few nours later adopted a freeze on run-making that gave the cold shoulder to their shot at a 59-year-old American League record. The A's, who had won 12 straight road games, four short of ttie AL mark set by Washington in 1912, managed just one run against rookie B'll Gogolewski, who pitched the Senators 'to an 8-1 victory over the West Division's runaway leaders Tuesday night. So Oakland had to be con,tent with a mere half-game pickup on second place Kansas City which dropped a doubleheader at New York, 2-0 and 8-5. Elsewhere in the AL Tuesday, California trimmed Boston 4-3, Chicago swept a doubleheader with D e t r o i t , winning the opener 6-5 and taking the nightcap 4-1, Cleveland nipped Minnesota 3-2, and Baltimore edged Milwaukee 3-2. The A's spent a friendly afternoon talking baseball with the-president a.rid a not so pleasant evening · playing it against the Senators. .Don Mincher drove in four Washington runs with a homer.and a single and Frank Howard cracked his 21st homer of the season, leading the romp over Oakland. Gogolewski, scattered eight hits and contrbuted three hits for Washington as the Senators shelled Blue Moon Odom. It was Oakland's first loss to Washington since Opening Day, April 5, when the Senators beat Vida Blue. That was, of course, the .Presidential Opener. Despite their problems with the Senators, the A's gained ground as the Y a n k e e s whipped Kansas City twice. Left-hander Fritz Peterson fired a five-hitter in the first game, winning his 13th in 20 decisions with singles by Danny Cater and Thuraian Munson driving in New York's runs. In the second game, the Yankees exploded for five runs in the seventh inning on homers by Felipe Alou and Bobby Murcer to erase a. 4-1 Royals' lead. Vada Pinson drilled two- long drives--one staying in the ballpark and the' other going out. Both provided Cleveland with runs as the Indians shaded Minnesota. Pinson sent Tony OHva to the fence for his sacrifice fly in the third" inning and then tagged one over the : wall to snap a tie in the eighth. Jim Spencer drove in three runs with a bases-loaded double as California. scored four times in the first inning against Boston. Then Andy Messersmith survived homers by Rico Petrocelli and Duane Josephson to. pitch the Angels past the Red Sox. His big double gave Spencer seven RBIs in two games against Boston. Ellie Hendricks cracked a leadoff homer in the ninth inning, giving the Orioles their victory over Milwaukee. The Brewers led 2-0 into the eighth but Paul Blair beat out a two-out bunt for a single and then Boog Powell, tied the game with a 425-foot homer-his 17th of the year. Steve Huntz ripped two horn-. ers including a three-run shot in the bottom of the eighth that gave Chicago its first game victory over Detroit. The homers were the first this season for Huntz. Then Huntz doubled and scored what turned out to be the Sox winning rua in the nightcap. Walt Williams and Mike Andrews homered for the Sox in the second game. Top Qualifying HOT SPRINGS, Ark. ffi-- Bill Rogers of Houston shot a three-under-par 141 Tuesday to earn a spot in the U.S. Amateur championship. Rogers shot a 72 in the morning round and then fired a 69 in the afternoon.
