(Courier News Photo) Eddie's Running Might Put Sox Back In Running By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer The Chicago Whits Sox have won two ai their last three games and Manager Eddie Stanky still is running in the outfield. Stanky continued his post- game physical fitness program Sunday after Pete Ward's ninth inning homer gave the Sox a 3-2 decision over the Minnesota Twins. The routine, which started in the middle of Chicago's season- opening 10 game losing streak, sends Stanky jogging across the outfield swinging a lead bat after each game. Then the little skipper retires to the.trainer's room for meditation. He could have had nothing but good thoughts Sunday after Ward's poke beat Dean Chance.. In other American League games, California nipped Oakland 4-3, Washington traded shutouts with Cleveland, winning 1-0 and then losing 2-0, New York split with Detroit, winning 2-1 and losing 3-2, and Boston blanked Baltimore 3-0 before the Orioles won the second game, 6-1. Chance was nursing a 2-1 lead on homers by Harmon Killebrew and Ted Uhlaender going into the ninth but Luis Aparicio opened with a single and after Russ Snyder lined out, Ward connected. The homer was Ward's fourth of the season and boosted his batting average to .340. "We've been in every game but we've just been falling one hit short," said Ward, who made sure the Sox weren't one hit short this time. And Stanky simply ran and swung his lead bat. He continued the post-game program even though he was ejected from the game in the sixth inning for protesting a third strike call. Roger Reppz took over the homer lead with his sixth of the year helping the Angels beat the Athletics. Rick Reichardt also homered for California. Sammy Ellis, with late inning relief help from Minnie Rojas, won the game—his first victory in the American League. Mickey Mantle doubled home the tying run and then carried In the winner on Roy White's single as the Yankees rallied for two eighth inning runs and a 2-1 victory over the Tigers in the first game. In the nightcap, New York rallied, taking a 2-1 lead in the eighth but Bill Freehan and Jim Northrup hammered ninth inning homers that won it for the Tigers. Jim Hardin'i ilx-hittw but Boston in the second game and earned a split for the Orioles after Jose Santiago pitched a four-hitter for the Red Sox in the opener. Consecutive doubles by Brooks Robinson and Boog Powell set up a three-run Oriole rally in the fourth inning of the nightcap and Hardin held the Red Sox at bay. Carl Yastrzem- ski's single drove in Boston's only earned run in the opener. Phil Ortega and Luis Tiant swapped two-hitters with Ortega scoring the only run in the Senators' first game victory and Tony Horton supplying the runs for the Indians' second game triumph. Ortega bowled over Cleveland catcher Duke Suns in a home plate collision for the first game's only run. Ken McMullen's single, snapping an 0- for-17 slump, drove it in. Horton doubled and scored on Tommy Harper's seventh inning single, snapping a scoreless duel in the second game. Then Horton hom- ered for an insurance run in the ninth inning. The Chicago CUDS' J extra-base punch has given Leo Duroeher some needed relief.. .and temporarily transformed the Vulture into a vacuum cleaner. Phil Regan, me lormer Vulture of the Los Angeles Dodgers' bullpen, tidied up in both ends of Chicago's 84, 5-2 doubleheader sweep over Houston Sunday in his first appearances for the/Cubs. • .. ' .Regan, traded from the. Dodgers to Chicago last Tuesday, protected sizeable leads in the eighth inning of each game as Diirocher's Cubs flattened the Astros with a 22-hit barrage that included four doubles, five triples and a home run. A week ago Sunday, in his final relief stints for the Dodgers, the 31-year-old right-hander picked up two victories in a twin bill against the New York Mets. In National League single games, St. Louis' high-flying Cardinals trimmed Pittsburgh 4-2 for their sixth straight victory, San Francisco downed the Dodgers 6-1 behind Gaylord Perry's five-hitter, the Mets nipped Cincinnati 6-5 for unbeaten rookie Jerry Koosman's fourth triumph and Philadelphia shaded Atlanta 4-3.
