(AP) - Angle Lunn neither plays golf nor talks the game at home. But for 40 tense minutes she knew something her husband, Bob, didn't know about the $100,000 Memphis Open Golf Tournament.

"I felt a little weak on the 18th green when I knew I could win with a par," Lunn said. "It's probably fortunate I didn't know I was in front by two. Something might have happened." Lunn, 23, of Sacramento, Calif., said he was planning on a birdie 4 when he made the eagle. He putted well throughout the tournament, making many two-to five-foot putts for pars.

Elsewhere, the Orioles outscored Washington 8-7 for their fifth straight victory, Minnesota nipped Boston 5-4, Cleveland beat California 5-2 and the New York Yankees took a doubleheader from the Chicago White Sox 5-1 and 7-6, In the National League, Los Angeles trimmed Houston 5-0, the Chicago Cubs downed San Francisco 4-2, Philadelphia trounced St. Louis 9-3, Atlanta edged the New York Mets 2-1 in a six-Inning, rain-curtailed game and Cincinnati played Pittsburgh to an 8-8 standoff halted by rain after seven innings. The Tigers and A's battled to a 2-2 rain-abbreviated tie In Friday night's series opener. The Tigers won 2-1 Saturday night, but lost Kaline for two to three weeks, when the Injury-plagued outfielder was struck by a Lew Krausse pi ten and suffered a hairline fracture of his right forearm. In the same game, Detroit second baseman Dick McAullffe tossed his bat in disgust while running out a pop fly, tripped over the bat and severely bruised his thigh. He sat out Sunday's game, and slugging outfielder Willie Horton joined him on the sidelines In the fourth inning after injuring his leg while running out a bunt single. :•: "Depleted by the Injuries, the Tigers fell behind 6-0, the scored twice in the fifth and struck for four runs in the sixth to knot it at 6-6, After Dick Tracewski drove in the tying run with a sacrifice fly, Oakland reliever Jack Aker hit Jim Northrup on the back of the batting helmet with a pitch. Northrup charged the mound and flattened Aker withhh a flurry of punches as both benches emptied. Horton emerged from the Tigers' dugout in his stocking feet, ready to do battle. Kraeuse raced from the Oakland bench to the middle of the scuffle. A's pitcher John "Blue Moon" Odom, although not In the game, also raced from the dugout and mixed It UD witth the Tigers' Injured McAuJlffe. When order was restored, Northrup, Krausse and Odom were ejected from the game and Aker was helped to the A's dressing room, his face bruised and scratched, most of his uniform torn off. Umpire Ede Runge said that Odom was thrown out because "he kicked McAullffe In the ribs," Northrup was sent to a nearby hospital as a precautionary measure, then released to join the departing Tigers. A woman fan was less fortunate. During the fight, one of the Detroit players threw a ball into the stands. It struck her above the right eye, opening a three»inch gash, and doctors said she may have suffered a concussion, Four innings after the brawl was over, Jim Pagliaronl poked a leadoff double and Lache- mann, batting ,154 with just one RBI In 15 previous games, sent everybody home with a run* scoring single to left, The Orioles capitalized on the wildness of Washington pitchers Frank Bertaina and Bob Humphreys to score four runs without a hit In the first two Innings, Dave Johnson singled In the fifth for the first Baltimore hit and Andy Etchebarren cracked a two-run homer, giving the Or» ioles a 6-2 lead.

This time it's Don Drysdale of the Los Angeles Dodgers, who polished off Houston 5-0 for his fourth consecutive shutout Sun* day. That tied Drysdale with five others for the modern National League record of four straight blank jobs, The major league record of five was set by one G. Harris White, who pitched for the Chicago White Sox In 1904 which, until now, was always known as baseball's deadball era. Doc White's mark stood off a confrontation by Luis Tiant of Cleveland, who pitched four straight shutouts earlier this season and now Drysdale is perched on the doorstep.

Taylor and Johnny Callison had three hits apiece. It was the fifth loss in six games for the slumping Cardinals. The Braves edged the Mets In a splashy affair at Atlanta. The game was delayed over an hour at the start and played In a steady rain until the seventh when the downpour forced the umpires to halt and eventually call It. By then, though, the Braves had a 2-1 edge and It went In the books as a victory. Rain washed out a tie breaking run In the eighth Inning for Pittsburgh and left the Pirates Qualifying in Speedway Continues By DALE BUHGESS INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) Qualifications for the 52nd 500 mile auto race Thursday went into an extra session tod.iy at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the first time since 1952. Rain, all but one day of the last three weeks, left the time trials schedule In a shambles. Nine cars qualified Saturday in high winds, headed by Mel Kenyon, Lebanon, Ind., at a modest 165.191 miles per hour. Eight spots remain open in the 33*car line-up. The track was too wet for speed until well after the 6 p.m. EST scheduled close of time trials Sunday. Rules permitted the Speedway to complete the line-up any way It saw fit, and it decided to let every healthy unqualified car — about 25 — make one more run. The 25 already qualified cars were ruled safe from "bumping" by any subsequent superior speeds. Two provisional qualifications were made at dusk Sunday by veteran Bill Cheesbourg, Tucson, Ariz., a slow 157.274 in an Eagle-Ford, and rookie Bill Puterbaugh, Roxanna, HI., 157.301 with a deadlock against Cincinnati. Roberto Clemente's two-run homer highlighted a six-run Pirate sixth that gave Pittsburgh an 8-7 edge but a double by Tommy Helms and Vada Pinson's single tied it for the Reds in thebottom half of the sixth. Clemente singled Willie Stargell across in the eighth before the rain eliminated the run. in a GerhardN The consensus In the Speed* way's Gasoline Alley was that It didn't make much difference who filled the last eight spots In the line*up, the three Lotus turbines driven by Joe Leonard, Graham Hill and Art Pollard, are consid*, ered the class of the field if they:: hold up for 500 miles.

Hutgers University. New Brunswick, is New Jersey's state university. Perfectionist's delight Perfection is an elusive goal, yet the makers of Lincoln Continental have pledged themselves to it year after year. And they come closer to realizing their goal than any other fine-car maker. But then, they have a slight edge on the field. Each year, Continental engineers and designers start with the finest car in America. They improve it. They refine it. They subject it to over 2000 manufacturing checks. Then test it again with a rigorous twelve-mile road test. In fact, they are as meticulous about testing each Continental as they are about building it. This meticulous attention to even the most minute detail has led the most discerning of fine-car connoisseurs to acclaim Continental as the definitive car in its field. Lincoln Continental for 1968 more than ever lives up to its reputation as the finest car made in America. Everywhere you look, from the gracefully classic Continental design to the luxurious beauty of the interiors, you detect the craftsman's hand. Allow us to show you how nearly perfect a motorcar can be. Let us arrange a personal demonstration for you, during which you may become acquainted with the pleasure and prestige awaiting you in the 1968 Lincoln Continental.
