Meanwhile, California won its third straight and its n t h in the last 15 games by downing the White Sox 5-2 to jump just into fourth place just 2'/ r games out.

In the other American League games, Minnesota remained one game liehind (lie Sov hy dropping a 9-6 game to Kansas City and Cleveland deal New York 5-2. Boston exploded for five runs with two out in the fifth inning to edge Baltimore. Reggie Smith's single, a walk and Mike Andrews' homer accounted for the first three and Tony Conigliaro's lwo r run triple provided the winning margin. The Angels bombed Joe Horlen for three runs in the fourth inning to beat the white So».

The victory vnanped a five- game Indian losing streak. In the National League, Gerry Arrigo's longest walk wasn't the most embarrassing of the night for the Cincinnati southpaw. That's because manager Dave Bristol offered Arrigo a pat on the back fust when the pitcher felt like kicking himself in the pants. Arrigo had just issued his third pass of the 12th Inning Wednesday night to Bob Tolan, forcing in the deciding run in the St. Louis Cardinals' 3-2 victory over the Reds, and now lie faced the embarrassing prospect of walking to the dugout before a crowd of 25,625. "Walk oft that field with your head up," Bristol told Arrigo. "You've got nothing to be ashamed of, you'll he oi:t Ihere again." Bristol's remark was a consolation to Arrigo although it didn't alter the outcome of the game nor the fad thai the Reds lost an opportunity to move within iVr games of the National League lead. St. Louis remained a game ahead of (he Chicago Cubs and hiked its lead to 3V? games over the Eeds. Ron Willis pitched two-bit ball in a four-inning relief stint to notch his second victory. A similar situation unfolded in Philadelphia where JeffTorborg and Ron Fairly received bases- loaded walks in the llth, boosting Los Angeles to a 3-1 triumph over the Phillies. The Cubs whipped Atlanta 7-2, Pittsburgh edged Atlanta 2-1 in 11 innings and the Mels swept a dciifclcheader from Houston 8-4 and 7-2 in other NI. games. Starter Chris Short, who had a shutout for seven innings, walked Torberg wiih the bases filled and reliever Dick Farrell then walked pinch-hitter fairly on a 3-2 count lor an insurance run. Short had gotten Into trouble on singles by Lou Johnson and Bob Bailey and a walk to Wes Parker but manager Gene Mauch, lite Bristol, refused to blame his pitcher.

John Beaton got the win to DENVER (UPI)-Arnold Palmer, who doesn't believe in jinxes, teed oft today in quest of the one last major prize to escape him-the PGA championship--over a course supposedly tailor-made for arch- rival Jack Nicklaus. A classy field of 146 professionals tackled the long, narrow 7,436-yard Columbine Country Club course, gunning for a share ol Ihe $150,000 purse. Nicklaus was the favorite because it takes a power-hitter to tame this course--and he's about the best. Right behind big Jack is Palmer, who failed in nine previous tries lo win the PGA, while capturing every oilier major title. Other big gunners such as 1%4 champion Bobby Nichols and Paul llarney were given good chances. Al Geiberger is defending champion, but no one has won While figuring that with a "I have no feeling about this little luck he can at last win being a jinx tournament," he Oils coveted title, Palmer, the said.

Nicklaus showed graphically Wednesday why his fellow pros ars saying this is the "course built for Jack." Playing as hot as the summer day, he spun over the front nine in three- under-par 33 and was six under when he picked up on 18. "The course is In beautiful condition," he beamed. "The fairways are the best we have played all year. It's a tight driving course-- one that requires good iron play." Nicklaus said the winning score here could be as low as 13-under-par 275. However, no one figures Nichols' record 271 is in jeopardy. Palmer said his game was perking up and he was driving f" 5 well. He said he is as well prepared as lie has been in the last five years. Palmer shot his second four- trader^ar 58 In his fourth and final tuneup round Wednesday. In his four practice rounds here, he did not go over par once. And it Is, as he puts It, "not a pushover course," Palmer has been here since Sunday, while Nicklaus got in only two rounds. Billy Casper, the 1965 U.S. Open champion, has spent a full week practicing, and because ol this gets some backing to win. Casper sees the greens as the "main problem" because roost are small are small and fringed by thick bluegrass. Ken Venturl said the greens were "not in good shape and they'll get a lot worse."
