(Courier News Photos) Leonhard, McDowell, Gibson Deliver Pitching Can Pay Off i v By MIKE RECHT ' Associated. Press Sports Writer l|ave Leonhard has joined Baltimore's growing trend to- wafii inactivating relief pitchers;;- although less strikingly than San?.. McDowell's method of putting hitters out of business. ISie 26-year-old rookie right- banlier kept the Orioles' bullpen in rmoth balls for the sixth straight game by cutting down on one hit Monday night as Baltimore beat the Tigers 4-0 forjts eighth straight triumph. "Those starters are getting serious," said reliever Moe Dra- bof sky after Leonhard gave up only : Jim Northrup's two-out seventh inning single for the Or- ioleg six. consecutive complete game". "We'll have to have an totrasquad-game Thursday for the relievers.". ./ '',*. *' , * New York Yankee-hitters — except for Mickey Mantle — also took an enforced rest as McDowell-struck out 14 of them en route to setting a strikeout record and pitching, Cleveland to a 3-2 .victory. The strikeouts, along with 16 In Sudden Sam's last outing, broke Bob Feller's American League mark of 28 for consecutive games, and came within one of Sandy Koufax' major league mark. McDowell, pitching the Indians to their fifth straight vic- tory, did give up seven hits, but only one did any damage — Mantle's 522nd career homer with a man on in the .first inning, moving him into fourth place on the all-time list ahead of Ted Williams. Only Babe Ruth, Willie Mays and Jimmy Foxx are ahead of him. Leonhard and McDowell thus overshadowed Tommy. John's three-hitter that pulled the Chicago White Sox by the California Angels 5-1. * * * In the only other American League game, the Oakland A's needed five pitchers to subdue Minnesota 2-1 for their fourth victory in a row. Leonhard, trying to match teammate Tom Phoebus's no- hitter April 27 that started the Baltimore spree, had some troubles, walking seven and hitting two. But the Tigers helped out by haying four runners thrown out on the bases. •. He is now 2-0 after' hurling a • five-hitter earlier in the streak.

McDowell continued Cleveland's move toward halting hitters by mowing down the Yankees after Mantle's homer produced the most runs off Indians' pitching in five games. But McDowell got those runs back by singling home the tying and winning runs off Mel Stottlemyre during a three-run third inning. . . Only in the ninth did the Yankees get another chance when a single and two walks loaded the bases with one out, 'but McDowell got two pinch hitters on a pop up and a fly out for his third victory in four decisions. John fell behind in the second inning on Bubba Morton's first homer of the season, but from there had little trouble running his record to 3-0. Rookie Bill Melton put him ahead by singling in two unearned runs inthe fourth inning off Rickie Clark after Bobby Knoop's error, and Bill Voss doubled in a run in:the ninth and Tom Cullen followed with his first homer. Reggie Jackson's fourth inning solo homer, his fifth, .off Dean Chance, 3-4, put: Oakland and Jim Nash ahead 2-1, but Nash, 1-2, had to leave in the seventh with a leg injury. Manager Bob Kennedy, keeping his bullpen in action, then used Ed Sprague, Paul Lindblad, Diego Segui and Tony Pierce to save the victory. * * * By RON RAPOPORT Associated Press Sports Writer Roy Hofheinz presented Willie Mays, with an .Astrodomical birthday cake, but -Denny Lemaster wasn't giving away a thing. Hofheinz, the Texas-thinking owner of the Houston Astros, helped the Giant slugger celebrate his 37th birthday in the Astrodome Monday night. He gave Mays a cake weighing 569 pounds, one for every one of his career homers. Then the game started and Willie might have been back in dressing room eating his cake for all the hitting he did. He went O-for-3 at the plate as Lemaster shackled the Giants and Rusty Staub and his teammates poured it on for a 10-2 Houston victory. The cake, according to those who did the counting, was eight feet square and contained 3,800 eggs. Hofheinz also gave Mays a couple of gallons of o'^->i- pagne, which he thoughtfully You feel BETTER INSURED with MFA ....because YOU ARE! iMywr For that'F«! fetor FMlfnj' UFA INSURANCE BUELL W.
