33^ Golesburg Register-Moil, (jolesburg, HI Thursday, Moy 17, 1973 By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer Tony (Miva, the Minnesota Twins' three-time batting champion, is one designated hitter who doesn't see the American League rule as a means to hang on in the majors a few more seasons. The 31-year old native of Cuba has been used exclusively as a designated hitter this season and has compiled a .278 average with 14 runs batted in to show for 26 games. He came through with a two-run tie- breaking double off Terry Forster Wednesday night to lead the Twins to an 94 victory over the Chicago White Sox and square their season record at 15-15. ''This game is too much fun for me to sit on the bench all season except for my hitting appearances," adds 01 i v a. "I've got to get back in the lineup to take the batting championship away from Rod Carew, my roommate." TbeOtfctt New York beat Milwaukee, 1H California downed Oakland, 74, Texas nipped Kansas City, 2-1, and Detroit scored a 6-5 victory- over Boston, in 16 innings in the other" AL games.

Foster wes elated by the victory since he had shut out Lee Trevino Closing in On Million Mark MEMPHIS, Tenn. (UPI) Lee Trevino says he feels like a million dollars Montreal in his previous start and he conceded he "was thinking of a second straight shutout. "I can't remember the last time I won two in a row in the major leagues," he said. "Last year not getting a chance and not pitching that much the year before. I think two years ago I won three in a row with Cleveland, but you hope and plan something like this will happen." Foster, 28. ran his season record to 2-3 with his first victory over the Cubs in four decisions, and he wouldn't second guess manager Red Schoendienst for pulling him out of the game. "I knew I probably was going to have trouble in later innings," he \said, "and By VITO STELLINO The countdown is now down to 30 but you can't measure the strain on Hank Aaron as he closes in on the Babe. "I 'm going to hit 30 more homers' and get out of baseball," Aaron said in his quiet, soft • s p o k e n voice Wednesday night alter he hit the 684th homer of his career and Uth of the season as the Atlanta Braves edged the Houston Astros, 5-2, in 11 innings. Aaron is now within striking distance of Babe Ruth's career record of 714 and he is finding out what kind of strain all players face as they go for the records set by the legendary Babe. Of course, the racial factor has made it even worse in the hate mail Aaron has received The majority of the fans wish him well but the minority is making his life miserable Aaron's homer off Jerry Reuss in the sixth inning gave Atlanta a 2-1 lead.

Mike Tyson's two-run triple capped a three-run second been switched from catcher to | inning and gave St. Louis the replace Roberto Clemente. The experiment doesn't seem to be working because Sanguillen is leading the club in errors with six—which is more than most outfielders make in a season victory over Chicago. The loss ended a seven-game Chicago winning streak. Alan Foster went 7 2-3 innings to get the win and Rich Folkers got the save.
