Lefty Grove and Dizzy Dean were the only other pitchers in the last 50 years to win 30 games in a season. Wood, however, expects at least 17 more starts this season. The Kansas City Royals swept the California Angels, 7-0 and 7-6 in 11 innings, the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the New York Yankees, 7-2 and 6-3, the Tigers downed the Baltimore Orioles, 8-3,. the Cleveland Indians whipped the Boston Red Sox, 8-2 and 6-2 and the Oakland A's beat Texas 7-4 in the second game of a doubleheader after the Rangers won the first game 3-0.

Wood was tagged for 11 hits and all six runs in 6 2-3 innings before Acosta came in for the save. By that time, the White Sox had scored their eight runs with Henderson driving in a run in the first inning and connecting for his three-run homer in the third. The save was the 10th of the season for Acosta, who gave up a run- scoring single and wild-pitched home another rUn before settling down. , Run-scoring singles by Gail Hopkins and Amos Otis enabled the Royals to come from behind with two runs in the 11th inning of the nightcap arid complete their sweep. 1 Homers by Otis and Frank Healy carried the Royals to their win in the behind the six-hit of Al Fitzmorrig. bpemng pitching Fifteen-game winner Bill Singer was the Angels' loser in the opener, Bell Hurls 8-Hlttter B5b Coluccio's triple and three hits each by Dave May Scott led the National League l. canSS^under growing criticism frtihf"drivers today following the -death Sunday of British drivgp Roger Williamson. r ^S'Zealander Denny Hulme, president of the Grand Prix Drivers Association (GPDA), atta^kfed the organizers for not stoppiiig the race when Williamson's car crashed at 130 m.pjh'jand burst into flames on . thfrrserventh'lap.

Oak CHICAGO (UPI) - Red Schoendienst said Bernie Carbo is the "hottest new player" on his St. Louis Cardinals and Whitey Lockman said he hopes nobody calls his Chicago Cubs' nightcap victory over the Cards "anything like a turning point." The Cardinals and Cubs meet today in the last game of 0 four-game series that should set the tone of the scramble for the lead in the National League East, at least for a while. The onrushing Cardinals increased their eastern division lead to three games by winning the opener, 5-3, but settled back to 2 l k heading Monday's fourth game with Bob Gibson opposing Rick Reuschel. that sent Joe Hague to the Cincinnati Reds. The 25 -yeSr-old right fielder is on a batting binge that started July 4 find has upped his average in that period from .180 to .306 with 30 hits in 66 at-bats. During that span, he has hit all four of his home runs, six doubles and has batted in 20 runs. The Cardinals' Carbo guide is press "suspicious" the ball and I am glad I am." Lockman's Cubs ended a five- game losing streak with the nightcap turnaround, But Lockman saw it as a possible recovery of the old first-place t , j t "It was no turning point," he said. "Not in this division. I talked. to the players between games. I hoped that helped." Virdon was quick to credit the fine play of shortstop Dal Maxvill, acquired a few weeks ago on waivers from the Oakland A's, as instrumental in the club's success. "Our defense is much improved because of him," said Virdon. "If we play better this half it will be primarily because of Maxvill," he added. Maxviirs reputation of being "good glove and no hit" doesn't seem to bother Virdon. After all, what manager would worry with hitters like Stargell, Sanguillen and Robertson in their starting lineup. In other National League games it was Chicago over St. Louis 5-4 after a 5-3 loss, Montreal 6 New York 4, Houston 8 Atlanta 5, Los Angeles 6 San Francisco 2, and Cincinnati over San .Diego 4-2 after losing 7-1.
