4B Ogden Standard-Examiner, Friday, October 1, 1971 SEASON ENDS IN TURMOIL Senators Forfeit Game to Yankees WASHINGTON (UPI) Faced with the loss of their team to Texas after 71 years in the major leagues, the last loyal fans of the - Washington Senators never got to see. the final out. . American League baseball in the nation's capital came to an end Thursday night in the turmoil of a forfeited game to the New York Yankees in the ninth inning when several thousand fans streamed out of the stands onto the field preventing completion of the farewell game that was one putout away from s. 7-5 victory for the Senators. The crowd eruption sent and then a smaller one outfielders. players of both teams streaking [running for their dressing rooms and after a three-minute wait, head umpire John Odom declared the game forfeited to the Yankees with the score automatically becoming 9-0. • There were six arrests for disorderly conduct. CRASHED THE GATE Until that point however, a turnout of 14,460 had paid valedictory to their team with big league class. An estimated 4,000 others crashed the gate after the fifth inning, a club official said. The emotional nigh point came in the sixth inning when Frank Howard drilled the last of his 237 home runs in a Washington uniform to touch off a four-run Senator rally that tied the game. He had been given a standing, cheering ovation on his previous two times at bat when he walked and failed to get the ball out of the infield. The third time the crowd exploded to its feet in a roar as soon as-the ball left his bat. He circled the bases in a tumult of sound and as he neared the dugout, Howard swept off his batting helmet in appreciation. "Hondo, Hondo, Hondo," the throng changed. "Hondo, Hondo, Hondo." DOFFED HELMET With play held up, the huge hero finally emerged from the dugout to doff his helmet again to the fans and skim it into the stands as a souvenir. It wasn't enough for the frustrated spectators. They continued their foot-stomping appeared. It said: "Short. Still stinks." Yet for the duration of the final two hours and 38 minutes of Senator baseball a long sign stretched over 30-yards of the upper deck which said: "Good Luck Senators. We're going'to miss you. We love you. Kay and Karem." FIELD CLEARED The first intruders broke onto the field in the New York eigth inning. Two young fans ran out and circled the infield, shaking hands with Howard and the other Senators, and one of them completed his visit by scampered forth at that point but the field was -cleared after a public address warning that the umpires were threatening a forfeit. , . • .-•.••• The Senators scored two runs in their eighth inning to lead 7-5 and two Several score of I made to the crowd as the others'intruders on the field ripped up S^fS^N Baltimore Picked to Beat Oakland in Playoff Series ighth i Yanki ;ees in the ninth were, retired without trouble when the dam broke.

York Jets acquired defensive tackle Chuck Hinton from the Pittsburgh Steelers • Thursday in a straight player-exchange for second-year linebacker Dennis Onkotz.

He is 6-5 and 264 pounds. New York's acquisition of Hinton was necessitated by the injury to Scott Palmer, who suffered seven broken ribs in an auto accident Tuesday night, which is expected to keep Palmer out of action all year. l |h' .

Every player in the opening line-up drew applause and cheers andj IN ONE OF the rarest of baseball events, the Washington Senators were declared losers to the New York Yankees Thursday by forfeit • when fans streamed onto the field -,vith a single out left.

Those 'Who believe in omens can't disregard, the winning streak, however. The Birds die it last year and won the world series. In 1969, they won only five of their last 14 games and the Mets took the series in five games. Both clubs finished the season with 101 wins. Baltimore had three fewer Josses to achieve the best.percentage in baseball this year: It's the third season in a row the Birds have won 100 or more games; a record matched by only two other clubs in history. This year, the A's achieved the team's highest victory total since the old Philadelphia Athletics won 107 in 1931. "I think' our clubs are on about a par," said A's leader Dick Williams, whose team] flew into town Thursday night. EVENLY MATCHED "The series with Oakland will jbe evenly matched," echoed Weaver, who thinks the shoddy condition of the field will give his team the advantage the first two games. "We have the better defense and faster hands," he explained. Two muddy football games churned up the turf and three Oriole home games this week gave it little respite.

The Orioles took the season series with Oakland 7-4, including the last five in a row. A ramout, one of 18 for the Orioles this year, was never made up. Williams doesn't seem nervous about the fact that he plays the first two games on the road. "We set an American League record with 55 wins on the road," he said.
