Epstein, who earned his iirst full shot in the majors when the Orioles dealt him to Washington two weeks ago, also went the distance, drawing intentional walks in both the 20th and 22nd innings as the White Sox chose to gamble against Casanova. Left-zander Pete Richert, sent from Washington to Baltimore in the Epstein trade, breezed to his first victory for the Orioles as they buried Kansas City 10-2. Cleveland edged California 7-5 in 11 innings; Minnesota thumped Detroit 11-5 and Boston downed New York 3-1 in other AL games.

Timt for tlw W fflllM wai 1:04, •I Associated Press Sports Writer Maury Wills, who could author a book on the extra effort it'takes to steal bases, has surprised everyone with a chapter on how to succeed in home run hitting without even/trying. He wrote it Monday night as he tried to punch a run-scoring single and wound up hitting a three-run homer, capping a five- run .sixth inning tha't carried Pittsburgh to a 7-5 victory over St. .Louis. . The home was ily his second of 'the season, giving him two more th- the Pirates probably expected him to 'hit when they acquired him. from Los Angeles last wiriter. The she '- wis not as'great at Houston ' where Jim Wynn, a home run regular, slamed his llth with two on to climax a four-run eighth inning that ;ave the Astros a. 5-2 victory over San Francisco.

Wills, whose hard, work to turn himself MOD base-'stealer paid off-in .'104 thefts'in 1962, breaking Ty. Cobb's record,' has never been known for his slugging. In eight. previous major league seasons, he.has hit 10, including a whopping six .in 1962. His homer Monday night put the Pirates and winner Dennis Ribant ahead 7-1 and offset later homers by Tun McCarver, Julian Javier and Bob Tolan for the Cardinals: * * * 'Willie Stargell connected earlier for .Pittsburgh with one on as the Pirates ended St. Louis' five-game winning -streak. : Farrell, winning his fifth game against one loss since coming to the Phillies from Houston, equaled his entire 1966 victory total by blanking the Braves .on three hits and no walks while striking out eight., : He came in with two on and two out hi the second inning and the Phillies trailing 4-0 -and retired Hank Aaron, who hit a three-run homer in the first inning.

Buzhardt, who came on in the 14th, took the loss.
