Phillips smashed four homers Sunday, driving in eight runs and leading the suddenly ferocious Cubs to a 5-3, 18-10 doubleheader sweep over the New York Mete. The fleet outfielder, \rfio set Cub records of 32 stolen bases and 135 strikeouts — and was plunked 12 times by pitchers for another club mark — last season, went down for the count when he tried to sleal home in the eighth inning of the opener. But he bounced back in the nightcap, walloping three homers to vault into the National League's top five in both homers (11) and RBI (38). While Phillips was landing Sunday punches against the Mets, Atlanta slugger Hank Aaron was on the run against San Francisco. Aaron collected four hits — including * pair of > game. infield singles — and stole three bases before scoring the winning run from second on an infield error as the Braves edged the Giants 4-3 in 10 innings. * * * Cincinnati's league leaders dropped the first game of their Phillips, who started his power spree with a bases-empty homer in the second inning of the opener, tried to duplicate Ted Savage's steal of home in the eighth but was tagged — on the chin - by Mets catcher Bob ; Taylor.

Associated Press Sports Writer Jim Perry provided the Minnesota Twins with relief in more ways than one and then went home in an effort to get some for himself. Perry, suffering from a sore throat and fever, entered the second game of a doubleheader Sunday in the third inning. He left after the sixth inning and Went home. In between his arrival and departure, the veteran right- hander was tough on Baltimore batters, hit a two-run homer and singled.in another run as the Twins won 10-7 after losing ttie opener 5-2. While the Twins and Orioles •were splitting, the Chicago White Sox moved into first place in the American League by a game over Detroit. The White Sox scored 2-1 and 3-2 victories over the New York Yankees, and Detroit lost 6-4 to California. Cleveland beat Kansas City 12-1 and 3-2 and Boston split with Washington, winning 4-3 Before losing 8-7 in other AL games. Perry, now 2-4, relieved Jim 'Mudcat" Grant in the third inning with two runs in and a man on third. He gave up a run- scoring single and then got the next two men to end the inning. * * » Minnesota tied the game at 44 in the fifth when Ted UMaen- der singled and Perry hit his first homer, and won the game in the sixth with four runs. Singles by Tony Oliva and Bob Allison and a walk to Rich Rollins loaded the bases. Then after a force out at home, Russ Nixon tripled and Perry singled. The six-hit pitching of Bill Dillman and Curt Blefary's two- run homer in the fifth inning, which broke a 2-2 tie, gave Baltimore its first-game victory. Wayne Causey's RBI single in the fourth inning broke a 1-1 tie in the first game and Gerr yMc- Nertney hit a three-run homer in the fourth of the nightcap for Chicago's sweep. Bruce Howard held the Yankees hitless in the second game until Joe Pepitone singled in the seventh. Howard needed relief help in the ninth when Ruben Amaro doubled and Jake Gibbs homered. The Yankees tied the first game on singles by Horace Clark, Amaro and Mickey Mantle. The White Sox had scored in the first on Walt Williams' double and Don Buford's single. Mantle's pinch hit appearance in the second game tied him with Lou Gehrig for most games played by a Yankee—2,164. A Bat Day crowd of 62,582—largest in the majjors since 1965— watched the games.
