ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Yanks' Boo-Boo Costs Them First Anxiety By Lopez Hurts Team §y tO W1LK8 Anoctftfed Pfm Sports writer Because what should have been ft sacrifice fly was converted Into a doubleplay, the New York Yan-| kees have only a share of thej American League lead instead of being all alone on top. The boo-boo came in the third- inning of Wednesday night's game at Kansas City. Hector Lopez left third base too soon on a fly ball and was doubled up by the A's —who then twice overcame three- run deficits and held the Yankees to a 7-7, 12-innlng tie. When rain finally called a halt, the Yankees were all square with Cleveland. And the Baltimore Orioles, who split a twi-night pair tvith the Indians, were Just one percentage point back. The third-place Orioles, beating the Injuns 13-5 after a 10-2 first game loss, have a 33-24 record. New York and Cleveland each are 29-21. That figures out to a half- game edge for Baltimore, but percentages form the basis of the standings. The Chicago White Sox regained fourth place with a 64 decision over Washington. Boston spilled Detroit to fifth place by beating the Tigers 4-3 in 10 innings. That third-inning run that never got home kept the Yankees from an eighth straight victory. Home run by Yogi Berra and Qetts Boy et sent them into the last of the ninth with a 4-1 lead. But the A's men went to work on starter Ralph Terry and relievers Bob by Shantz and Johnny James scoring three for a tie on Norm Siebern's sacrifice fly and a pair of bases-loaded walks. .The Yankees scored three more in the 12th, capped by Roger Mars' is' two-run single off Leo Kiely. f But Kansas City, winless in nine Jackson's Gets Double Defeat From Merchants MT.TRRAYVTLLE Spring- erl BONUSBAB\ DANVER8, Mass.—Danny Murphy, 17, of Bev- Mass., sensational schoolboy pitcher-outfielder field Merchants handed Jackson's of Alton a double defeat here Wednesday night, in Central Illinol* Softball League play.
