LO 3-2622 By HAtfl'WCK """••-'•'"' Associated Press Sports Writer The While Sox still-haven't won any baseball' gatnes;lhis season, and the slump is keeping Chicago Manager Eddie Stanky in terrific shape/i Stanky spent 20 minute's walking briskly, from' foul line to foiil line in Minnesota's Metropolitan Stadium Thursday, swinging a : leaded.bat and mulling over his club's latest loss—a-3-2 toughie' against:the Twins. He started his post-gar;* stroll, routine last .Saturday when the Sox dropped their seventh straight. Now the streak is up to 10 for. winless Chicago, and Stanky is still walking. \ In Thursday's only other game, the' Chicago Cub whipped Atlanta £2 as'Ron:San« to poked a pair of home runs. All/other major league teams had the day: .off. ' "How am I holding up?" Stanky said, repeating a newsman's question. "Great." Then he strolled off to the trainer's room to lie down for several more minutes. It was the kind of loss that required long meditation. Chicago ace Gary Peters allowed just three hits—but all-of them in a r6w in the third inning when the Twins got all their -.runs. .".The way we're going," Peters said, "you make :one bad-pitch, and it costs you." .And what made ; it-even tougher for Stanky to swallow was' that an old teammate from his New York Giant days was the hero for the Twins., •. Rubber-armed Al Worthington came out of. the bullpen and saved Jim Perry's victory. Worthington ;lpaded-.the•.• bases 1 with none out in the seventh,on two. singles and a walk, then struck out Pete Ward; Tommy Davis and Russ Snyder, retiring • the side. - Stanky's W/ufe Sox Are Still Very Much I PCC \*sj*j Gary Peters "The Twins' three-run rally started with '>'o out when Perry walked on a 3-2 pitch. Cesar Tovar and Tony Oliva followed with doubles and Harmon Killebrew singled. The White,Sox scored twice in the fifth-'.when,Peters,.Ken Berry and Ward singled and Davis delivered a sacrifice fly. Chicago left 11 runners on base and one manager in the outfield.. Santo's two homers drove in three runs and supported Ferguson Jenkins' seven-hitter .as the Cubs trimmed the Braves. Atlanta's'only runs came on homers by Bob Tillman and Felipe- Alou. Santo connected with the bases empty in the fourth against Ken Johnson and the sparked a three-run rally with his second shot in the eighth.
