The Yankees celebrated the 50th anniversary of the opening of Yankee Stadium Sunday by reprinting the program from the first game ever played at the "House That Ruth Built" and downing the Boston Red Sox, 6-2. But it's the new Royals who are playing the kind of games the old Yankees used to play. Under their new manager. Jack McKeon, the Royals are boasting basdball's newest Murderer's Row. Even little Fred Patek joined the parade Sunday when the Royals blasted foUr homers to clobber the shellshocked Chicago White Sox, 12-5, and complete a three-game sweep. The Royals took a 9-0 lead after three innings and then gradually pulled away. Patek joined Hal McRae, Ed Kirkpatrick and John Mayberry in the homer derby Sunday as the Royals pounded out 14 hits. Chuck Tanner, the Chicago manager, was so impressed by the Kansas City team that he was talking more about their "great defensive infield" than their hitting. The Royals scored a total of 27 runs in the three games with the White Sox while recording 12-5, 3-0 and 12-5 victories. In the other games, the Cleveland Indians blanked the Detroit Tigers, 7-0, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat Baltimore, 3-2, in 11 innings in the first game of a doubleheader, but lost the second game, 5-4. The Minnesota at Oakland game and the California at Texas doubleheader were rained out. In the National League, Pittsburgh beat Montreal, 8-3, Chicago downed St. Louis, 8-6, New York edged Philadelphia, 2-1, Los Angeles topped Atlanta, 6-2, San Diego swept Houston, 5-1 and 4-0, and Cincinnati whipped San Frapcisco, 11-0 and 7-3. Horace Clarke hit a two-run single in the six-run fourth Inning and Mel Stottlemyre pitched a four-hitter to give the Yankees the victory over Boston, which had beaten the Yankees four straight games. Bob Shawkey, the winning pitcher in the first game at Yankee Stadium, was one of the dignitaries on hand for the ceremonies. Gay lord Perry pitched a two- hitter and Charlie Spikes hit his first major league homer—a three-run shot in the sixth Inning—to pace Cleveland to the victory over Detroit. Tom VETERANS WE'VE GOT IT!

Pedro Garcia then singled In the winning run in the 11th inning for Milwaukee off Bob Reynolds.
