Big Mick Back Homers By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer dnno^ r-~..», haughty New York Yankees were in serious danger of looking like an ordinary ball club. M. u the Big One stepped in just long enough to the bat once, and they were the Yankees agnin. ihe Yanks oft-injured super-star, Mickey Mantle, mak- » his first appearance in a Yankee same'since he broke m his left foot June 5, cracked a dramatic pinch- run into the left field bleachers, pulling the and aiming them toward an 11-10 victory. The Yanks had lost the first game of a doubleheader 7-2, their two starting pllchers had been bombed out and the Baltimore Orioles, helped along by five unearned runs, hnd a 10-9 lead in the second game. Mantle, to a wild ovation from the Yankee Stadium crowd of 38,555, stepped in in the seventh. Baiting right-handed against the left- handed George Brunei, he lined the second pitch into Ihe left field bleachers. The Yanks won It in the 10th on Yogi Berra's sacrifice fly. Second-place Chicago inched to within seven games of the lending Yankees on an 8-1 romp over Los Angeles, Kansas City 'beat Minn- sota 6-2, Washington stopped Boston 7-5 and Detroit and Cleveland split a pair, the Tigers taking the first 2-0 and the Indians the nightcap 3-2. In the National League, the leading Los Angeles Dodgers whipped Houston 4-0. San Francisco took over second by edging Ohicago 2-1 in 10 innings while Philadelphia swept two from St. Louis, 7-3 and 5-2. Cincinnati won tWo from Pittsburgh, 5-2 and 4-1, and Milwaukee beat the New York Mets 2-1. Manlle, who had missed 61 game s since his injury in Ballimore, said the ovation when he came from the dugout "actually chilled me. I could feel the bumps rising on my arms. I was shaking. I told myself, 'I'll settle for a single.'" Th e homer was his 12th of the season. Brooks Robinson had a homer for the Orioles, and Elston Howard connecled for the Yankees. Home runs by winning pitcher Steve Barber, John Powell and John Orsino made it easy for the Orioles to win th e opener. The White Sox closed up a half game as Camilo Carreon drove in three runs on a double and a single and scored another against the Angels. Hank Aguirre tossed a sparkling two-hitter in Dtetroit' s easy first- game victory against the Indians, and rookie, Mickey Lolich had another shutout until the Indians erupted for their three runs in the ninth and gained a split. sports slate MONDAY Space League «6ftb»II for Rirls of a»ea 11-1S.

The 14 Soviet delegates were led out of the audience by Yuri Zhukov, a commentator for Pravda.'.the Soviet Communisty party newspaper. The apparently planned affront took the 10,300 participants to the outdoor ceremony in the park by surprise, but did not prevent them from giving Chao repeated applause.
