Wood Praises Team By ED SA1NSBURY UPI Sports Writer CHICAGO (UPI) - Pitcher Wilbur Wood said he'd take the •"W" for the Chicago White Sox' 3-2 victory win over the Baltimore Orioles Friday night, but added, "I didn't win it. "Those other guys behind me won it," he said. "Buddy Brad­ ford won the game with first a catch and then a throw, (Eddie) Leon made several great plays and so did (Bill) Melton, and (Jorge) Orta made that catch in short right. A run scored but if he doesn't catch the ball we're in a lot more trouble.

(UPI) - trants in the second round of $125,000 Shrine-Robinson Ooan Golf Classic were so engrossed in their work Friday thzt there was a large afternoon log jam for the top spot_ the likes of which veteran PGA observers said they had .hcHidi never seen. ""^Hk players finished in a tie fgg^he lead with 36-hole scores <$J$7 or five under par on i*6ij|-varcl Crawford County CSufitry Club course with its tJiiMpw fairways and postage­ s'flip-sized greens. Sharing the lead were defending champion Gricr Jones, Babe Hiskey, 1971 Masters' winner Charles Coody, Mike Morley, Deane Beman and BSbby Greenwood. The cut was at 143, one over gar^ and a total of 83 of the original 144 starters qualified for further competition. Former champions Bob Goalby and Derm Refram were barely under the wire with two-round USals of 143.

Kite came up with a rash of bogeys Friday for a 74 but still was in hailing distance at 140, only three strokes off the pace. Grouped with Harris were Andy North, George Archer, Bunky Henry, Chuck Courtney, Butch Baird, Curtis Sifford. Lou Graham, Bob Dickson, Pete Brown, Bob Smith, Jim Barber 'and Bob Lewis. The unhappiest player on the course was Larry Wood of Salem, 111., whose protest of a two-stroke penalty for slow play was disallowed by the rules committee. The ruling gave Wood a 145 instead of a 143 and put him out of competition.

Wood, who got his 17th win against 12 defeats, apparently was on his way to another loss when Baltimore finished batting in the ninth and carried a 2-0 lead into the White Sox' half of the inning with lefthander Dave McNally targeted for his 28th career shutout. McNally got pinch hitter Luis Alvarado on an infield grounder and then Pat Kelly singled to center, only the fifth hit "off McNally. When pinch hitter John Jeter forced Kelly at second, McNally appeared home safe, needing only one out for his third straight victory. But Carlos May singled to left, putting Jeter on second, and Orioles Manager Earl Weaver called in Bob Reynolds to relieve. Melton singled to center to score Jeter and put pinch runner Joe Keough on third. Then designated hitter Ken Henderson slammed a double to the rightfield corner to bririg in Keough and tie the game. "I had to adjust to bat against Reynolds," Henderson said, "because he's a fast ball pitcher and McNally throws breaking balls. I never batted against Reynolds before, but I know him because we both were with the Giants." Henderson also had to adjust from batting right-handed three times against McNally to batting lefthanded against Reynolds, who was relieved by Ed­ die Watt after Henderson's hit. Bradford was walked intentionally to fill the bases and Leon hit Watts' first pitch into left field for a single to score Melton and top off a three-run rally which won the game for the Sox. "I don't usually hit Watts that well," Leon said. "I don't hit him at all. They were playing me to hit to right field and he threw me a fast ball and I got it through the hole." It was the second time this season they have scored three runs 1 in the ninth inning to win for Wood, who started the season by winning 13 of his first 16 decisions! Friday night's victory was only his fourth in the last 13 games. chool Registrar Says She Changed Player Records Major League Leaders GALVESTON, Tex.

(UPI) — Craig Morton changed his current residence from the Dallas Cowboys' training camp to a local motel Friday and said he would like to change it to another National Football League team. Mortno, who hos been trying to renegotiate his contract with during: American League: May berry, the Cowboys since the end of- Thursday and immediately resumed his efforts to obtain a new contract. Morton has one year left on a three-year pact, but he has felt that because of his performance last season—in which he took over for the injured Staubach and led Dallas to the playoffs for the seventh con­ secutive year—he' deserved a raise. He met with Schramm Thursday night and Friday morning and, when those two sessions brought no progress, Morton left camp. "I'm still hopeful that Craig will change his mind," said Schramm. 1972 Coach Woolley came to my office and stated that on Michael Phillips' transcript his official number and the class standing had to be raised in WAKM TOMORROW Time to Insulate WHITE'S PHONJ2 bli-0185 However, the Galveston School Board voted 4-3 Wednesday to reinstate Wooljey as head coach.
