Detroit Registers Doubleheader Sweep Over Cleveland Morton, McLain Sparkle in 10-5, 2-1 Victories By BERNIE KENNEDY Associated Press Sports Writer DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Tigers slugger Willie Horton is at the top of the American League baseball standings in home runs and M uns batted in. Horton and pitcher Denny McLain combined to help power the Tigers to a doubleheader sweep over Cleveland Wednesday night. Horton batted in five runs in the Tigers' 10-5 opening game victory. McLain won his seventh straight game—on a third try, 2-1 in the nightcap. More important than the Tigers' twin bill victory — after losing seven games and splitting three others — was the gain they made on two teams immediately in front of them. The Tigers are still in fifth place but only a game out ofj third, now shared by Cleveland and Chicago. > o * * ! "That McLain is going to be one heck of a pitcher," said Manager Charlie Dressen, "if nothing happens to him." Losing manager Birdie Tebbetts said McLain put on quite a show He predicted McLain and firpt-game winner Mickey Lolich would be great pitchers. "I was more nervous after Don Demeter hit his homer (which decided the second (game) than I was when we were behind," McLain confessed. "But right then and there I decided that there was no way they were going to score on me. Bob Swift told me that one fault I have is that I let up in the late innings. "Weil, I wasn't going to do it tonight," McLain said. Nicklaus Is Favored to Win National Challenge Match WASHINGTON (AP) — Three of golf's greatest — Jack Nicklaus, Gary. Player and Arnold Palmer — open play today in the 72-hole National Challenge Match with Nicklaus the favorite for the winner's share of the $50,000 purse.

Palmer lias yet to qualify and must win the National PGA in Ligonier, Pa., his home course, next month to get in. He struck out four of the six batters he faced in the last two innings to bring his total for the game to 12. "I'll say one thing," McLain added. "Pitching in these tight ball games had made me a better pitcher. I throw better because 1 know I can't make a mistake when I'm behind, and •when 1 get ahead I can challenge the hitters." t> ft ft Catcher John Sullivan, who caught McLain in the winter league, said his young bat- terymate has developed a better change-up pitch and was keeping his curve low. "Getting ahead of the hitter like, Denny was tonight makes it a lot easier to pitch," Sullivan said. Chuck Hinto homered off McLain on a fast ball "that slid" in the second inning and Sonny Siebert two-hit the Tigers until the.,seventh when Demeter hit his home run after Dick McAuliffe had doubled. • Horton hit his 22nd homer of the year in the opener and the five RBIs gave him 66 for the season. Three hits in two 'games lifted his batting average to .304. Al TCaline also hit a three-run homer for the Tigers while Norm Cash 1 and Ray Oyler added solo smashes. Oyler's was the first of his major league career. Hinton and Duke Sims had homers for the Indians. The Tigers scored a run in the first inning when Sam McDowell walked Horton with the bases loaded. McDowell retired after the inning when he was hit on the left forearm by a liner off the bat of Bill Freehan. ft ft ft Hprton added three RBIs with his .homer and got the fifth in the sixth inning with a single. Lolich. pitching -with only a day's rest after going 2 1-3 innings Monday, joined Hank Aguirre by gaining his tenth victory. Terry Fox took over in the/sixth and preserved the triumph.

Killebrew May Have to Hit Less To Step Up Into Class With Ruth By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Harmon Killebrew, who is in a class by himself as far as the Minnesota Twins are concerned, is trying to step in a class with Babe Ruth.

Hill, 6 feet 2, 195 pounds, has been named to the Eastern Pro- Bowl squad three times during his career. Hill, 35, had indicated after the 1964 season that he intended to retire. However, he said Wednesday he • will report with the rest of the Lions at the club's training camp in August. League lead by walloping Bos ton in both ends of a double header 3-6 and 11-8. But only one of Killebrew's hits went for a homer. Anc strange as it may seem, the statistics show the Minnesota strongtaoy with his best batting average in the last four years while he is in danger of losing his home run crown for the firs time during that period. Killebrew, trying to become the firs* player besides Ruth in the last 50 years to win the American League homer title four consecutive years, . ha produced homer totals of 48, 4! and 49 the last three years. His top batting average for that pe riod wr;s last season's .270. Now he's hitting at a .283 clip but has only 18 homers, four behind front-running Willie Horton of Detroit, and could dip below the 40-homer level for the first time since 1960 when the club was based in Washington. Horton, meanwhile, broke a tie for the homer lead with Cleveland's Rocky Colavito as the Tigers downed the Indians 10-5 and 2-1, sweeping a double header for the first time in 11 j tries thJ? season. i Elsewhere, Baltimore took 'over second place by sweeping ! Kansas City 1-0 and 9-2, the New York Yankees edged the Chica go White Sox 7-6 in 10 innings and the Los Angeles Angels nipped Washington 2-0, also in 10 innings. Horton and Al Kaline each hi three-run homers for the Tigers in the opener while Ray Oylei and Norm Cash chipped in with solo shots in support of Mickey Lolich, now 10-5. Sam McDow ell, 9-7, started- for Cleveland but left after bruising his arm in the first inning. Denny McLain's three-hit, 12. strike out pitching and Don De meter's two-run seventh inning homer off Sonny Siebert got the job done for the Tigers in the nightcap. The only run off McLain, who has won seven in a row lor an 8-3 record, was Chuck Hinton's second homer of the night. The Orioles won the opener j wheriv Curt Blefary and Sam Bowens got consecutive doubles in the fifth inning, producing the game's only run with the first hits off A's starter John O'Donoghue, 4-13. Milt Pappas, 10-3, won it with two innings of relief help from Dick Hall. The Orioles scored seven unearned runs in the fourth inning of the nightcap with the aid of three Kansas City errors, a wild pitch, a passed ball and two stolen bases. John Miller took it from there with a five-hitter.

Ironwood ' '-*•• -' Zephyr, By RON BERGMAN Associated Press Sports Writer SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — If 44-year-old Warren Spahn can help San Francisco move toward the National League flag, then the Giants intend to find out quickly. Even before the veteran of 19 big league seasons arrived, Manager Herman Franks decid- inninp;, then homered off ace White Sox reliever Eddie Fisher in the bottom half of the inning for ihe Yankees' victory. Joe Pepitone had pulled New York into a lie with a two-run homer in the ninth off Hoyt wilhelm. The Angels won it-in the 10th when Paul Schaal lashed a two- run single with the bases loaded and two out. That brought the victory to George Brunet, who allowed only four hits in bringing his record to 6-6. Buster Narum, touched for only six hits, took the loss. Hawks, Raiders Post Victories At Randa Field in Wednesday morning's play in the Ironwood Farm Baseball L e a g ue, the Hawks defeated the Twins 6-2 in the first game and the Red Raiders edged the Angels 6-5 in the second game of a doubleheader. With the excellent pitching of M. Skaja, the Twins were kept scoreless until the last inni n g when fvo runs came across the plate on walks. The Hawks scored all six of their runs in the first two stanzas, three in each inning, sparked by hitter Dan Baker with a double and a single. Skaja. the winning pitcher, put 12 batters down swinging while the losing pitcher, L. Kirkl e y struck out nine. Although Raiders put the dampers on the Angels early in the game with heavy hitting, the Angels fought back. Scoring one run in each of the first three innings and two in t h e last stanza, the Angels barely missed knotting the tally. The winning pitcher was B. Domin with nine strikeouts, and the losing pitcher was K. Wills with seven strikeouts. Sparking the win for the Red Raiderc, were P. Krause and G. Mariani, both slamming round-trippers. Maki was the big bat for the Angels with a triple. Pacef Henry T. Adios cost $37,000 but won $706,898 in five seasons. ed to start him today against the Cincinnati Reds. "Stalling rotation?" queried Franks. "Let's see what he does." Spahn would become the only left-handed starter on the Giants, who play in a ball park where the wind blows in from left field and out toward right, favoring southpaw pitchers. "This might be a new lease on life," said Spahn, winner of more games than any other left- handed pitcher in baseball history. "I think the breaking ball goes good in Candlestick Park," said Spahn upon his arrival Wednesday night at San Francisco International Airport. "The wind can get tough. But a left-hander has the advantage." The man with 360 career victories displayed no bitterness about being cut eight days ago by the last-place New York Mets. After no other club would touch Spahn and his reported $73,500 salary on waivers, he made a deal Monday with the Giants as a free agent.
