And Manager Earl Weaver wasnt' asking. Their silence wasn't golden for the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday night. "He didn't tell me that his arm had tightened up and I didn't think of asking him," said Weaver after his pitcher came back after a ram delay and was hit hard while losing a 7-1 decision to the Minnesota Twins. Dobson looked like two different pitchers against the Twins—pitching shutout ball before the 34-minute rain delay interrupted the seventh inning, and then getting whacked as the home team scored all its runs. "Dobson looked like he was still throwing good alter the rain delay," said Minnesota second baseman Rod Carew."

Dobson got two outs, but 'couldn't get the last one—giving up four singles and wo runs before leaving the game. Minnesota starter Bert Blyleven had better luck after the rain delay ("It made my leg stiff, instead of my arm," he said) and managed to complete the game wit a seven- hitter. Despite losing, the Orioles stayed tied for first place in the American League East with Detroit because the Tigers also lost a 4-1 decision to the California Angels. The Oakland A's improved their margin in the West to 1% games. They beat the Cleveland Indians 2-0 while the second-place Chicago White Sox lost to the Boston Red Sox 4-2. The New York Yankees trimmed the Texas Rangers 3-1 and the Kansas City Royals turned b a c k to theh Milwaukee Brewers 6-2 in Wednesday's other American League games. Andy Messersmith stopped Detroit on three hits and Vada Pinson knocked in two runs to power California over the Tigers. Messersmith struck out nine batters as he posted the fiftii straight complete game by a member of the Angel staff—a club record. Messersmith held the Tigers hitless until two were out in the sixth inning, when Dick McAuliffe broke the spell with a line single to center. The loser was Chuck Seelbach. Mike Epstein's 22nd home run of the seventh inning started Oakland to victory over Cleveland. Epstein's 375- foot blast to right helped Jonn "Blue Moon" Odom boost h>s record to 12-4 with relief help from Darold Knowles. Pitcher Wilbur Wood misplayed a high chopper for an error in the sixth inning that let in Boston's go-ahead run and helped the Red Sox win the rubber game of their three - game series with Chicago. Rob Gardner held Texas to seven singles in 7 and 1-3 innings and lowered his earned run average to 1.21 as New York beat the Rangers. Sparky Lyle came on following Rich Billings' one- out single in the eighth inn'r.g and notched his 29th save, tying the Yankee record of Lindy McDaniel and Luis Arroyo. Amos Otis drove in five runs, including three with a homer in the eighth that broke a 1-1 tie as Kansas City beat Milwaukee. Otis also had a two-run double in the ninth.

LOUIS (AP) - "It's part of the game," a smiling Dal Maxvill said. "You have to be prepared for it. I've had fun here, now I'll have fun there." Maxvill's words came only minutes after the 33-year-old shortstop, a 10-season veteran with the St. Louis Cardinals, was traded Wednesday to th? Oakland A's of the American League. It marked still another in a series of moves designed by general manager Bin^ Devine to reconstruct the Cards, and left only two holdovers from the 1967-68 club pennant winners. "It. sure seems like time has gone fast," said the slim Maxvill, who became the Cards' regular shortstop in 1966 and held the post througn most of seven seasons despite a light bat. Rated among the top fielding shortstops in the National League, Maxvill had compensated for a .219 career batting mark with glove work that included an NL-leading .982 fielding average at his position in 1970. "The time has come for us to look ahead," said Devine, whose deal was the fifth he has negotiated with Oakland. "We have a lot of yoir.g players, some of them the best we've ever had, and we might as well find out what they can do." Only 72 hours earlier the Cards had sent veteran Matty Alou to the A's for outfielder Bill Voss and a minor league pitcher. This time the Cards got first-year infielder Joe Linct sey, who was hitting .259 in 36 games at Birmingham of the Southern League and a player to be named later. "I can understand that,' Maxvill said in regard to Devine's plans. "I'm 33, and they want players that can be with them in the future." Maxvill's departure leaves only Bob Gibson and Lou Brock from the Cards' 68 N r , champions. Gibson, Brock and Joe Torre also are the team's only holdovers from as recent as 1969. HOLE-IN-ONE Ron McGivany of 1202 Douglas, Alton, scored a hole- in-one on the No. 7, 160-yard hole at Rock Spring Park Tuesday, using a 7-iron. Sam Cotter witnessed the shot, the first ace of McGivany's career. LOCKHAVEN HANDICAP Pairings and tee times for the Lockhaven Fall Handicap .
