MINNEAPOLIS AP - Zoilo Versalles is swinging less and hitting more hese days, and he's off 16 a glittering start for the Min- lesota Twins in a bid to recap- :ure (lie glory of 1965. Two years ago. Versalles was the toast Of the pennant-winning Twins as he won the American League's Most Valuable Player award. Last year, hampered by a sore arm and two leg injuries, he never got started and wound up hitting only .249 with seven home runs and 36 runs batted in. In 17 games this year, he s hitting .357. second high in the league. He leads the Twins with 11 runs batted in. . Friday night, Versalles col- lected four straight hits and " drove In a pair of runs with a triple and a single to lead the Twins to a 5-2 victory over Boston. It was Minesota's third straight victory and lifted the Twins into a tie for eight place with Cleveland after a miserable start. It wasn't a record for Versalles, who went 5-for-5 in 1961 against Washington and 4-for-4 in 1963 against Kansas City. But he thinks Friday night's 4-for-4 is more significant than those Other two performances. "Before. I would swing too hard," said the 26-year-old Cuban shorlston. now in his seventh full maior league season. "Tliis year. I'm waiting better. and I'm just meeting the ball— hittin? it where it is pitched."^ AND OVBKgoreng ofMiami (Ohio').
