UPI Sports Writer The Philadelphia Phillies stole a page out of baseball history Friday night when they went 20 innings with . the Atlanta Braves, and won the game in a way that was characteristic of, play early in the century. The Phillies-Braves clash was the longest game involving the Phillies since April 30, 1919, when, they played a 20-inning, 99 tie with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Denny Doyle, a light-hitting infielder opened the 20th inning for the Phillies with a triple off reliever Tom Kelley and Kelley then walked the next two Crampton Is Leader In Tournament By DARRELL MACK UPI Sports Writer HOUSTON (UPI) - Bruce Crampton, who already has won more money this season than he did all of last year, is shooting to replace Jack Nicklaus as the top money winner on the 1973 tour. Crampton, with $112,582 now compared to $111,010 for 1972 held a two-stroke lead today entering the third round of the $205,000 Houston Open. The tournament has a first prize of $41,000, which could boost Crampton past Lee Trevino, the No. 2 money winner with $125,881, and Nicklaus, who is tops wtth $146,064. Neither Trevino nor Nicklaus entered here. Crampton, whose best year was $142,609 in 1970 fired a six- under-par 66 Friday for a two- day total of 138. He was two strokes ahead of Lanny Wadkins, the No. 4 money winner; Rick Massengale, a former University of Texas star, and amateur Ben Crenshaw, a current • University of Texas star. Wadkins, who won the Nelson Classic last week, shot a 69 to go with his opening round 71. Massengale had a 68 to go with a 72 and Crenshaw shot a 71 to mesh with his opening day 69. . Tied at 141 were Charles Coody, Dave Stockton, Lee Elder, Bobby Mitchell and Bob Eastwood. Gene Littler and Homero Blancas led a group of six tied at 142, four strokes off the pace. Crampton, who already has two tour victories, took the lead by sinking 32-foot birdie putts on the 15th and 17th holes. He had birdied the first hole with a six-foot putt, No. 6 with an 18- footer, No. 13 with a 10-footer and two-putted from 25 feet to birdie No. 10. batters intentionally to set up a double play situation. But Jose Pagan crossed up the strategy when he hit a fly ball to leftfielder Oscar Brown, and Doyle scored the winning run when he slid around Brown's strong throw to the plate 7 to give the Phillies a 5-4 victory. "On a pool table it would have been a home run," Pagan said of his game-winning drive. "I wasn't worried about a homer. All I was looking for was a fly ball and in this case experience helps." One of the Longest Nights Ralph Garr of the Braves suffered through one of the longest nights of his career, going 1-for-ll at the plate. In other National League games, Pittsburgh whipped San Diego, 12-6, Los Angeles edged St. Louis, 6-5 in 10 innings, San Francisco beat Chicago, 5-4, Houston defeated New York, 95, in 14 innings, and Montreal downed Cincinnati, 6 -3. Chicago 'blanked New York, 5-0, California edged Baltimore, 1-0, Detroit defeated Texas, 5-1, Minnesota topped Boston, 9-6, Kansas City beat Milwaukee, 53, and Oakland routed Cleveland, 11-4, in American League action. Jim Lonborg, relegated to bullpen duty after failing as a starter, worked two innings to get credit for the Philly victory. Rennie Stennett drove in six runs wth a pair of homers, a single and a sacrifice fly to spark the Pirates' triumph. The Padres now have dropped seven in a row to Pittsburgh and haven't beaten the Pirates at San Diego since July 25, 1971. Dave Lopes singled home Bill Russell with one out in the 10th inning to, give the Dodgers a victory over the Cardinals. Russell opened the inning and advanced to third on an error by Jose Cruz to set the stage for Lopes. Ron Cey had a two- run triple for the Dodgers. Come-From-Behind Victory Ed Goodson, out of the starting lineup with a pulled groin muscle, delivered a two- run, pinch-hit single in the sixth inning to give the Giants a come-from-behind victory over the Cubs. Dave Kingman, who started at -third in place of Goodson, homered with two out in the sixth to draw the Giants to within one run and Goodson delivered his game-winning hit after a single by Gary Thomasson and an error by Cub first baseman Joe Pepitone. Pepitone and Rick Monday homered for the Cubs while Chris Speier also homered for the Giants. Major League Standings Safe at Third Base Ted Simmons (23) of the St. Louis Cardinals is safe at third base after hitting the ball out of the glove of Dodger baseman Ron Cey (10) during the second irtaing of ; their gafflie^at Los Angeles Friday night. After the safe call by umpire Art Wil­ liams, Simmons later scored on a double by Mick Kelleher, but it was not enough to keep the'Dodgers from winning 6-5.

Back in 1938 Vander Meer startled the sports world by pitching two consecutive no- hitters for the Cincinnati Reds. Busby, a 23-year old right­ hander who pitched a no-hitter .for the Kansas City Royals against the Detroit Tigers April 27, took a shot at the unique feat Friday night. when •" he pitched 5 1-3 no-hit innings against the Milwaukee Brewers. Then'Dave May broke up the bid with a homer and Busby came apart at the seams. He walked the next four batters and wound up with [nothing more exciting than a 53 victory achieved with the help of relievers Mike Jackson and Gene Garber.

"I wasn't shaky after the homer but I -lost the feel of my slider after walking the next batter. I made a mistake and May hit it. Then I just started to get mad at myself."

(UPI) • Secretariat, once hailed as a wonder horse, battled to regain that elevated status today in the 99th and richest running of the $198,800 Kentucky Derby. • The husky chestnut colt-swept to easy and impressive victories in his first two races this year but then the aura of invincibility was shattered when Secretariat went down to defeat two weeks ago in the $100,000 Wood Memorial at Aqueduct. Victory by the colt would give owner Meadow Stable, trainer Lucien Laurin and jockey Ron Turcotte a consecutive double in America's greatest horse Mild TOMORROW Time to Insulate WHITE'S PHONE 342 01W race.

This time John LeBlanc rode Angle Light, replacing Jacinto Vasquez. The colt bled from his nostrils Friday morning but, after consulting with his veterinarian, Laurin declared, "The horse is in absolute top shape and will start." Secretariat's chief rival for the winner's purse of $155,050 was Sigmund Sommer's Sham, the Santa Anita Derby winner who beat Secretariat in the Wood Memorial by finishing second. Laffit Pincay rode the son of Pretence who was listed as second choice at 7 to 2. Shecky Greene, who set one sprint record and tied another while racing in Florida, was expected to set the early pace. The speedy colt, ridden by Larry Adams, would be sent to the front at the start and run as fast as he could for as long as he could, trainer Lou Finegold said. Finegold had another strong contender in My Gallant, the Blue Grass Stakes winner, who was ridden by Braulio Baeza. The entry was listed at 10 to 1. The third choice at 8 to 1 was Our Native, the Flamingo Stakes winner to be ridden by Don Brumfield. Also given outside chances at Chess With Times Chess sets often commemorate battles. After Waterloo, many were made depicting Wellington leading English soldiers against Napoleon and the French. A set made after the Battle of Saratoga had George Washington with Liberty as his queen, flanked by Generals Gates and Morgan. Ranged opposite them were George III and Britannia, with Generals Howe and Burgoyne. long odds were Lazy F. Ranch's Forego, who has been working fast for the race, Alsco Stable's Royal and Regal, who has recovered from a sore foot he had Wednesday, and War- buck, owned by Ed Eizemeyer.
