Senators Continue Hot Streak By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer Sometimes the most improbable things happen in baseball. Such as the Washington Senators playing tti e best ball in the American League. And a minor league failure like Don Lock, who batted under .200 in the International League just last year, breaking up game after game in the big leagues with timely base hits. Take Friday night. The Senators, trailing the hard- hitting Twins in Minnesota, 44 after seven innings, rallied for four runs in the eighth and broke through again in the 13th to win S-5. It was the -cellar-dwellers' llth victory in the last 14 games. No other club in the league can match that. Lock slashed a two-out single to drive in the winning run. Ifi the eighth he singled in an- tther run during the uprising against starter Jim Kaat and ace reliever Bill Dailey. The 26-year-old outfielder, purchased last year despite a .194 batting average and a history of never hitting .300 in six years in the minors, slammed a home run his first time at bat. That gave him 13 for the season, second high on the club. He leads the Senators in runs batted in with 47. Kansas City nipped Baltimore 2-0 and Detroit defeated Los Angeles 10-5. Rain forced postponement of games between the Boston Red Sox and White Sox in Chicago, and the Cleveland Indians and Yankees in New York. In the National League, Los Angeles widened its first-place bulge over Chicago to 7Va games with a 4-2 victory over Milwaukee as the Cubs bowed to Pittsburgh 9-4. Cincinnati moved into a fourth- place tie 'with San Francisco, beating the Giants 5-2. St. Louis defeated Houston 7-2 and Philadelphia nipped the New York Mets 2-1 on Roy Sievers' two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth. A throwing erro by Twins shortstop Zoilo Versalles led to Washington's winning run. Ken Retzer, on base because of the error, ad- vanced to second on an infield out and scored on Lock's single to right. Lefty Claude Osteen, Washington's winning pitcher, held off a Minnesota uprising in the bottom qf the 13th to gain his fourth vic- tory'in 10 decisions. With one out, Don Minchcr, Earl Battey and Vic Power delivered consecutive singles but Mincher was out trying for third on Battey's hit. Osteen got Wally Post to ground out to end the game. Rotary Beats Kiwanis, 10-2 Rotary defeated Kiwanis, 10-2, at Alta.Brown Field late Friday in a Minor League Knothole baseball game. No B-team preliminary was played. The winners had a 9-3 edge in hits and plated four runs in the sixth frame. Dunlap homered and singled for the winners, and Gooden and Edmundson each singled twice. Pauiey, Pierce, and Guthri e each singled once. Kiwanis' three hits were a homer by Culbertson and singles by Ewing and Dellinger. Pitcher Halblieb for Rotary struck out 12 batters and walked two.
