Duds Start It with Win Bull Pen to Be Empty It- things get tough out there, American Legion Coach Dwight Williams has told his Dud Cason huriers, don't look toward the bull, pen. "I don't see how we could give anyone (starting pitcher) any help this weekend," Williams commented following last night's 8-1 win over Newport. The situation is this: the Casons have two tonight '(starting at 5:30 p.m.), two tomorrow and a single Sunday. That, together with last night's game, just about takes care,of all the Cason pitching. Greg Buys, the 'big, strong youngster from Kennett, pitched a strong five-hitter last night. Tonight, Walt Hampton is due to b^egin the first against Wai- out Jlidge with Tommy Kelly handling the second. Tomorrow, Bobby George, the versatile ttrird - baseman, is to start:with Ronnie Howell handling ^the nightcap against Sylvan Hills of North Little Rock. Then on Sunday, Ben Robinton, who has a smooth motion and the earmarks o£ a good athlete, will take on the Pulaski County team. '•. / * * * Last nigdt's debut of Buys jfas a pleasant one. The big right-hander recorded six strikeouts. Wildness got him in s o m a .spots of trouble, but his teammates came up with key defensive moves. to bail him out. All told, Buys was impressivei pumping the ball in there. ''Pretty good fast ball and pretty good curve," Williams commented after the game. 'tout he's going to get faster. He" really hasn't pitched a lot •Ofeseball yet." Catcher Pat Harper, who has a real space-age arm, helped Buys in the eighth when he picked a base runner off first to dampen a Newport rally. Then in the fifth, wifii two on and two out, Second Baseman Stan Williams managed to knock down a hard liner and make the putout. Buys walked eight and hit one batter. Bill Kinard got three of Newport's five hits. Jim Wagner, Searcy Mears and Buys, all got two hits. Buys really dumped one ... a 375-foot homer over the left cen- Mears and Kenny Beard in the eighth. The Casons Went right to work last night, picking up three in the first. Lee Forrestier walked, Phil Morrow lined hard to second, with Forrestier advancing; Williams was hit by ttie pitehei and Wagner doubled home Forrestier, with Mears' infield hit and a subsequent error scoring two more. In the sixth Harper screamed a double to the centerfield wall; Mears walked, a passed ball advanced both runners, Beard singled in one and Buys got a scratcher before Forrestier grounded home a run.

PITCHING— Jim McGlothlin, Angels, shut out Cleveland on three hits for his seventh victory against one defeat as California trounced the Indians 7-0. Aaron Sparkles; Cards Crush LA By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer It's a good thing Hank Aaron isn't mad at. San Francisco. There's no telling what kind of damage he'd do to. the Giants then. Aaron, who was involved in a squabble with teammate Rico Carty as Atlanta flew west Sunday night, continues to take it out on the rest of the league. He walloped a two-run homer in the eighth 'inning lifting the Brave's to a 6-4 victory in the second game and a doubleheader sweep against the Giants Thursday. He doubled home Atlanta's first run in the 2-1 first game triumph. In the only other National League game played Thursday, St. Louis beat Los Angeles 7-2. New York's game at Philadelphia was postponed by rain, and the other teams were not scheduled.

He drove in three runs in the doulbeheader with three hits in seven trips and raised his batting average to .322.

By RON RAPOPORT It took Al Kaline just one day to rediscover the thrill of hitting a home run in a winning or losing cause. And it felt so good, the Tiger slugger did it twice. Kaline broke out of a hitting slump — he slipped to third in American League batting while it was going on — with a home run in Wednesday night's con- test'against Minnesota. But the game was called after eight innings because of rain and the teams tied iWi. But Thursday, with rain still plaguing much o! the league's schedule, the Tigers and Twins managed to complete their contest, with Kaline's two homers, which give him 15 for the season, powering Detroit to a 5-2 victory. In the only other American League game not rained out, California shut out Cleveland 70. Victims'of the weather were Kansas City at Baltimore and Boston at New York. In all, Kaline drove in three of (lie Tigers' runs, giving him 8! for the season and making Hun third among the league leaders. It felt," he said succinctly, good." . Norm Cash also homered for Detroit. Joe Sparma gave the second- place Tigers something else to grin about, turning in a four-hit performance and picking up his seventh triumph of the season against just one defeat. A double by losing pitcher Jim Kaat and a sacrifice fly by Zoilo Versalles accounted for the Minnesota runs. Jim McGlothlin of the Angels turned in the pitching gem of the evening, allowing the Indians only three singles as he rode a powerful California attack to his seventh victory of the season. He has lost one. A two-run homer by John Werhas and a solo shot by Paul Schal provided the muscle in the early innings, and the Angels got two runs in both the eighth and ninth innings to rub it in.
