(Al* Wirephoto) first hit Fisk in the back and pitcher Al Brock equals record as Cardinals lose, 1-0 LOS ANGELES (AP) Lou Brock, the St. Louis Cardinals' speedster, stepped alongside the fabled Ty Cobb Tuesday night with his 50th stolen base of the season. When asked if it was his greatest thrill he shook his head and said, "Nah, the greatest thrill for me was the day I put on that big league uniform. I'd like to see anyone top that." It was the eighth time Brock has stolen 50 or more bases. Cobb is the only other player to do it eight times: Brock's achievement failed to rattle the Los Angeles Dodgers' Al Downing who hurled a ninehit 1-0 shutout victory over the Cardinals. Downing happily surrendered the ball to Brock as a memento. "It's great to see a guy break a record. It's good for the game," Downing said. "But I hate to see them do it at my expense." The victory squared the three-game series at a game apiece with the finale scheduled tonight, matching the Dodgers' Bill Singer, 4-12, and the Cardinals' Don Durham, 1-5. It will be the Cards' final Los Angeles appearance of the season. Both clubs are idle Thursday, then the Dodgers embark on a rigorous 11-game, 10-day road trip to Pittsburgn, Chicago and St. Louis which will conclude their season's play against Eastern Division clubs. Willie Davis drove home the only run of Tuesday night's game, singling in Manny Mota in the first inning. "Man, I knew something like this was going to happen," Davis said after the game. "My wife hardly ever comes to the games but she did this time because she wanted to see Al pitch. She said she had helped him out a little. Man, she did, too." The victory was the seventh, in 13 decisions for Downing, who won 20 games a year ago. One he failed to conquer, though, was the Cards' Dwain Anderson who went 4-for-4 including a double, the only extra-base hit of the game. In their last meeting. Anderson collected three hits off the Dodgers and had one other hit washed out in a rain-nut. He has seven straight official hits against the Dodgers in two games. Rick Wise was the hard luck loser. The loss was !iis 14th, 10 of them by one run.

And that explains how the unlikely American League East pennant race has another applicant today with the Cleveland Indians now just 6'^ games behind in the whackiest chase since the Keystone Kops were in business. The Indians find themselves in the picture after nipping Minnesota 3-2 Tuesday night. The top of the division rein a i n e d unchanged with Detroit losing to Oakland 6-3, Baltimore bowing to California 2-0 and New York losing to Chicago 5-4. Fourth place Boston tried valiently to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory but didn't quite make it, beating Kansas City 10-7. In the oth«r AL game, Texas trimmed Milwaukee 2-1, keeping the Brewers a mere 17 games behind. In the National League, Atlanta ripped Philadelphia 11-7, Cincinnati downed Montreal 53, New York topped Houston 4-2, Los Angeles blanked St. Louis 1-0, Pittsburgh shut out San Francisco 1-0 and Chicago trimmed San Diego 4-3. Detroit began the month of August atop the AL East and the Tigers are still there despite a woeful 8-15 log over the last three weeks. The slump has, of course, cost the leaders. Surging Baltimore, 10-13 this month, has chopped two games off the lead to move within one-half game of the lead. The status remained quo with Oakland using homers by. Angel Mangual, Blue Moon Odom and Joe Rudi to defeat Detroit and Mickey Lolich Tuesday night while Nolan Ryan's four-hitter pushed California past Baltimore. The Tigers and A's stirred some extracurricular excitement with a seventh inning brawl that started when reliever Bill Slayback buzzed a pitch too close for Mangual's comfort. The A's outfielder said Tiger Manage' 1 Billy Martin was the culprit. "I never fight in my life," said Mangual. "1 heard Martin tell the catcher to have the pitcher knock me down. If he tries to hit me, what do I do. I've got to protect rr.yself." Mangual rushed Slayba-'k and the brawl was on with fights breaking out all over the field. Oakland's victory kept the A's one-naif game ahead of Chicago in the AL West. Tin- White Sox erased a four run New York lead and beat tr.e Yankees with Dick Allen's 31st home run of the sea«.>a deciding the j;a!ne. It was the fifth loss in the last seven games for New York but the Yanks have lost no ground during that slidi? and remain only H/j games behind Detroit. New York witha 13-10 record for August has clipped four games off the Tigers' lead. Boston raised its August record to 12-10, impressive in the AL Kast by holding off Kansas City. The Red Sox, seven games back of the Tigers when the month began, are now just 2'/2 behind. The Red Sox gave Marty Pattin an early five-run cushion against KC with Carl Yastrzzemski'b third - inning homer providing two of the runs. Boston built the edge to 9-2 but the Royals kayoed Pattin with two runs in the eighth and three more in the ninth before Don Newhauser came on to get the final out. /"T" ^ Alton Evening Telegraph Wednesday, Aug. 23, 1972 I:-; 1 , VANDALIA, Ohio (AP) So far, Kay Stafford of Thornton, Colo., has shattered 400 straight targets in the 73rd annual Grand American Trapshooting Tournament without winning a thing. He vvas hoping today might be the day he would claim a trophy. To do it, he had to outshoot 1,700 competitors in the 200- target Clay Championship of America' Kniered were some of the nation's finest shots, * including Richard Smith, 42, of Newcomerstovvn. Ohio, the defending champion. Stafford stiJl is in the running for a couple of other titles, pending the outcome of shootoffs. A former member of the U.S. Army shooting team, Stafford broke 400 straight targets Monday as the tournament started. Me had 200 straight in the. several mild threats against Downing but twice double plays took him out of trouble. In the ninth inning, after Downing retired the first iwo batters, Matty Alou and Anderson singled. Joe Torre, sidelined with a pulled hamstring muscle, came *o the plate to pinch hit but grounded out to end the game. Los Angeles third-baseman Bobby Valentine suffered a broken nose when a hard grounder in the eighth by Dal Maxvill took a tricky hop and caught him just under the right eye. The broken bone was set following the game and he'll be sidelined about a week. Class D championships and 1(10 more straight in a shootoff for that title. But when curfew came he was still tied with 400 gunners for lop honors. That shootoff continues Thursday, t As Colorado state c h a m- pion, he broke 100 straight in the Champion of Champions race to make a total of 400 for the day. In this event he is deadlocked with 11 others, and because of Tuesday's rain and heavy schedule, that shooloff has not even started. Another all-time record was set during Tuesday's Class Day double:; competition as Veldon Smith, 27-year-old construction worker from Browsburg, Ind., broke 100 straight to win the Class C title. Ryan stifled Baltimore, striking out 11 batters along the way and ending a personal four-game losing streak. The Angels gave him the only run he needed in the third inning when Sandy Alomar tripled and scored on Bob Oliver's sacrifice fly. Two-out doubles by Oliver and Ken McMullen in the seventh inning gave California its other run. Gaylord Perry won his 10th game for Cleveland as the Indians raised their August record to 14-9. best in the division. They have sliced five games off the lli.i-game deficit they faced at the start of the month. Major League AMERICAN LUAGUE BATTlNli (1!T5 ut huts)— Schuintilum, KC, .:«U; Rudi, Oak, .31!).
