Oakland's Jackson Hot Reggie Jackson won't be able to hit in Texas again until August 6. But if the Oakland A's could play there all the time and add one Rangers' player to their lineup, Jackson says the American League West title would nearly be wrapped up by then. The outspoken A's outfielder bid a fond farewell to Arlington Stadium with his second and third home runs of the season and seven runs batted in Oakland's 8-4 triumph over the Rangers. He finished the American League baseball season's opening series with seven hits. in 13 at bats, eight runs batted in, two doubles and a ,53ft batting average. Jackson could well have added to those impressive statistics had Ferguson Jenkins not one-hit the A's Saturday night. "If we had him on our staff," said Jackson, "we could all go home by Aug. 15." In other American League games Sunday, the California Angels and Chicago White Sox were tied 4-4 after 10 innings when snow postponed their contest; the New York Yankees bombed the Cleveland Indians 7-1; the Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tlm«« Harold, Carroll, la. -j Monday, April 8, 1974 / Tigers split a doubleheader—the Orioles won the opener 5-1 and the Tigers took the second 8-4 in 10 innings. The Boston Red Sox at Milwaukee Brewers game was rained out, as was the Minnesota Twins-Kansas City Royals contest. "I've never had a start like this before—ever," said Jackson, the Most Valuable Player during the 1973 regular season and World Series. "Normally, I get off slow." Angels 4, White Sox 4 Snow began falling during the eighth inning and led to the postponement of the CaliforniaChicago game after 10 innings of play. The entire game will be replayed at a date to be determined, but all records of Sunday's contest will be counted toward the final statistics. The Angels had a 4-1 lead after seven innings, but Chicago scored twice in the eighth and tied it in the ninth on Ken Henderson's double and Carlos May's single. The White Sox might have won the game in the ninth, but a perfect throw from Joe Lahoud cut down Bill Melton at the plate. Aaron HltleSS in First Win Major Leagues Sunday's Victory By The Associated Press Al Downing of Los Angeles must have only one thought tumbling around in his brain: Getting past Bad Henry. Tonight, in front of thousands of frenzied fans in Atlanta and millions more stationed in front of television sets across the nation, Downing and the Dodgers will have that goal in mind. Henry Aaron was bad, indeed, on Sunday, striking out twice like any mortal baseball player and grounding out meekly in his only other at-bat. Perhaps Clay Kirby's pitches were that good—or perhaps Aaron was just succumbing to the pressure of being forced to start for Atlanta Sunday against the Cincinnati Reds, a game won 5-3 by the Braves on D. a r r e 11 Evans' three-run homer In Sunday's other National League games, the New York Mets pounded Philadelphia 9-2, San Francisco belted Houston 8-4 and Los Angeles walloped San Diego 9-2. Snow kayoed the Chicago Cubs' doubleheader at Montreal and rain postponed Pittsburgh's game at St. Louis. Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn issued the order that Aaron start on Sunday. Kuhn had "suggested" that Aaron start in Thursday's season opener and Aaron's first swing became homer No. 714, tying Babe Ruth's career record. He sat out Saturday and was going to do the same Sunday, just to make sure he didn't rob Atlanta fans of No. 715 as well. Then Kuhn made his own ground rules, ordering Brave Manager Eddie Mathews to include Hank's name on his lineup card. "I don't want to get involved," the soft-spoken slugger said. Downing, commenting on all the ballyhoo which will accompany every Aaron appearance at the plate, said: "I don't think any pitcher can disregard the surroundings. I'll be aware of it. I'll probably even be thrilled by it. But I'm also aware of what I have to do." Kirby, an off-season acquisition from San Diego making his debut with the Reds, felt exactly the same way Sunday. "I just said to myself, 'Gotta get him out,'" and he did, avoiding the notoriety which would have made him "an instant star for doing something bad. . .1 just happened to make good pitches to him." Then he added, almost ominously: "He gonna hit it—No. 715—and pretty quick." __ Maybe too quick for~Al Downing's taste. to Charles Since '67 GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP> — Bob Charles, once again a winner on the American tour, is busily rearranging his schedule. "I'll have to change things round a bit," the slender, graying veteran from New Zealand said Sunday after his victory— his first since 1967 in the United States—in the Greater Greensboro Open Golf Tournament. "I'll now make two more trips to the United States this year," he said. "I'll definitely play in 15 tournaments. I'll definitely play enough to keep my card." He hadn't planned on that. He'd planned to surrender his playing privileges in the United States until his final-round three-under-par 68 stood off a half-dozen challenges and won him the $44,066 first prize in this tournament. Charles, a 38-year-old former British Open champion who abandoned the American tour a year ago, finished with a 270 total, 14 under par on the 7,021-yard Sedgefield Country Club course. He finished one stroke ahead of Ray Floyd and Lee Trevino, tied at 271. Floyd, who lost a share of the lead with a bogey oh the final hole, had a closing 67 and Trevino, By The Associated Press American League East Saturday's Games California 3, Chicago 2 Kansas City 23, Minnesota 6 New York 6, Cleveland 1 Detroit 3, Baltimore 2,10 innings Milwaukee 5, Boston 4 Texas 2, Oakland 0 Sunday's Games Oakland 8, Texas 4 Minnesota at Kansas City, ppd.,rain California 4, Chicago 4, 11 innings, ppd., snow Boston at Milwaukee, ppd., rain Baltimore 5-4, Detroit 1-8, 2nd game 10 innings New York 7, Cleveland 1 gunning for a second consecutive triumph, once took a share of the lead with three straight birdies and finished with a 66. Charles opened the final round with a one-stroke lead, but a bogey on the second hole opened the gates. Five other players shared the lead at one time or another on the sunny day before Charles solved it all in the run down the stretch before a massive gallery of 47,253. The left-hander birdied the 17th after a beautiful iron shot left him a five-foot putt. He holed it to go 14 under and move past Trevino, who had finished at 13 under.

Roy White tripled and scored on an infield out, then Munson homered to put New York in front for good.
