Orioles drop to 4th in latest shuffling By HERSCHEL NISSENSON AP Sports Writer The Baltimore Orioles are the team to beat in the American League East. You can tell because everyone keeps beating them. Tuesday night it was the New York Yankees' turn with a 7-6 victory that saddled the Orioles with their fourth defeat in five games and dropped them from a first- place tie down to fourth, which is the equivalent of a disaster area for the three- time AL champs. Detroit took over sole possession cf the top spot with a 4-2 triumph over Cleveland, i The Tigers are one-half game and three percentage points ahead of- the Boston IJed Sox, who rallied to boat Milwaukee 5-3. The Yankees, also one- half game out, trail Boston by one point while Balt'more is one full game and seven points behind the Tigers. Elsewhere, the Chicago Exterior posterior inferior By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer Tom Seaver, who lias had a sore arm, bad back and muscle pulls in both legs, has come up with a new twist: an injured external rotator. "I don't think I'll be a' cripple for the rest of my life, though," said the New York M e t s righthander after departing midway through Tuesday night's 3-0 loss to the Chicago Cubs. Seaver hurt himself while throwing a curve ball to Don Kessinger in the fifth inning and a doctor later diagnosed the injury as an "injured external rotator," which is a muscle in his buttock. "I thought I had a muscle spasm in my left buttock," .said New York's No. 1 pitcher. "I thought it was a spasm that would go away, but it didn't." Despite the pain, Seaver stayed in to pitch to Rick Monday and was hurt further Outdoors with John Stetson Hunting season dates—Last time It's time to list the hunting season one more time. After a Labor Day weekend of repeated phone calls: "Is this the Mr. Stetson who writes (hat column for the paper? 'Say could you tell me just what time dove season opens.' " Or: "Mr. Stetson I've misplaced your column on hunting seasons could you tell me . . ." And so it went all weekend. Now I don't mind a call occassionally from a reader, but I'm beginning to wonder if anybody really reads these season dates, or if they just reach for the phone and start, in, "Mr. Stetson I'm sorry to bother you on a Sunday morning, but could you toll me . ." If he was sorry he wouldn't call in the first place. But enough crying — I like writing an outdoor column and I guess I'll keep answering the repeated questions regardless; but how about it, why not clip this column and put it by your telephone then when your're tempted to call you simply look at the column which saves you time and worry. Dove season — which started at noon Sept. 1 continues through Nov. 9 and shooting hours are from noon (CST) until the legal sunset closing time as established by the Illinois standard shooting table. Daily bag limit for doves is 12 birds with a possession limit of 24 doves. Now if you don't know what the Illinois standard shooting table is it's a list of sunrise and sunset tables that make these times the same for the entire state. There is approximately 12 minutes difference between sunrise and sunset from one side of Illinois to the other side due to the rate of travel of the sun. Therefore the state Department of Conservation by setting • a standard time for starting and closing shooting hours has eliminated (hopefully) the confusion hunters often have when they travel distances lo hunt. The standard sunrise and sunset times for the entire state was started last year. We list the timetable for the month of September at the conclusion of this column. Pheasant, Hungarian Partridge, Quail and Rabbit season: Nov. 11 through Jan. 15, 1973. The bag limit for pheasants is two with a possession limit of four and hunters are allowed six Hungarian partridge per day and 12 in possession. Bag limit for quail is eight with possession limit of 16. Rabbit hunters will be allowed a bag limit of five with 10 hi possession. Woodcock and Wilson's Snipe season: Oct. 15 to Dec. 15 with a daily bag limit of five and possession of 10. For Wilson's snipe bag limit is eight with a 16 bird possession limit- Statewide hunting hours for upland game and migratory water fowl for month of September (Central Standard Time) September 15 5:39 6:00 Day Open Close 16 5:40 5:5K 1 5:26 6:23 17 5:41 5:50 2 5:27 6:21 IS 5:42 5:54 3 5:28 6:19 1!) 5:43 5:53 4 5:2!) 6:18 20 5:44 5:51 5 5:30 6:16 21 5:45 5:50 li 5:31 6:15 22 5:46 5:48 7 5:32 6:13 23 5:47 5:46 8 5:33 6:11 24 5:48 5:45 !) 5:34 6:10 25 5:49 5:43 10 5:35 6:08 26 5:50 5:42 11 5:36 6:07 27 5:51 5:40 12 5:36 6:05 28 5:52 5:38 13 5:37 6:03 29 5:53 5:37 14 5:38 6:01 30 5:54 5:35 We will start running these shooting times at the start of each month, in addition to the entire regular duck season, which will be listed in the Telegraph's annual waterfowl and upland game shooting cards. These are not printed yet but as soon as they are completed it will be announced hi tills column. when the Chicago center fielder hit a home run. "If the muscle is just a pull, then he'll probably miss one or two starts," said a team spokesman. "If it's torn, however, he'll no doubt be out the rest of the season." /In other games around the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers pounded the Cincinnati Reds 9-4; the Atlanta Eaves tripped the Houston Astros 5-3; the St. Louis Cardinals turned back the, Montreal Expos 5-3 and the San Diego Padres nipped the San Francisco Giants 4-3 in 11 innings. Monday was pleasantly surprised when Seava-'s pilch came in with less velocity than usual. He spanked it over the left center field wall to break a scoreless tie ard sent Rick Reuschel on his way to his seventh victory this year. Reuschel gave the Mets but three hits and never allowed more baserunner in any inning. Don Sutton, backed by a 14- hit attack that included a two- r u n homer by Gilly Grabarkewitz and a solo job by Frank Robinson, pitched Los Angeles over Cincinnati. Sutton scattered nine hits, one of them a' homer by Pete Rose, and struck out 10 Reds en route to his 15th victory in 24 decisions. Golf Notes HOLE-IN-ONE Walter Horyn of 12 Hawthorne Place, Hartford, scored a hole-in-one Monday at the No. 7 Municipal Golf Course hole. He used a No. 5 wood to score his 129-yard ace. Horyn was accompanied by Joe Wilkinson, Louis Barcht and Jorden Middendorf. ANOTHER ACE A Florissant man, Gene Mitchell, won a hole-in-one contest at Cloverleaf Golf Course Sunday by sinking a hole-in-one. Mitchell used a nine iron to sink his ace on the practice tee at the course on Fosterburg Road. The two-day event, rained out Saturday, was sponsored'by the Parents CJub of St. Kevin's Church in Rosewood Heights. Mrs. John Mullen, wife of the event chairman, said the organization made "about $70" from the contest. Charles Lavell of St. Louis was second, with a ball landing 4% inches from the cup and Mrs. Birdie Byron of Wood River was third at 514 inches from the hole. ALTON WOMEN Three blind holes-low total was the event of the day for members of the Greater Alton Women's Golf Association Tuesday at Muny Golf Course. In the championship flight, Bernice Beck won the event, Edna Barton low net. In the first flight, Mary Ball won the event and Shirley Henson low net. In the second flight, Kathleen Hiatt won the event and Bunny Emons low net. Edna Barton had overall low net honors. White Sox set up a crucial two-game series against front- running Oakland by beating Minnesota 5-2 while the A's were idle In the only other game, Kansas City whipped Texas 7-2. The contenders all play one another over the next few days—Detroit at Baltimore and New York at Boston for three games apiece in the East and Oakland at Chicago for a pair in the West. The Yankees erupted for five runs against.old nemesis Dave McNally in the first inning and were never headed, although the Orioles rallied for three runs in the ninth against Sparky Lylo. The Yankees got two decisive runs in the fifth on doubles by Felipe Alou and Rich McKinney and an RBI single by winning pitcher Lindy McDaniel. Boog Powell accounted for three Oriole runs with a single and two doubles. Detroit skipper Billy Martin, undergoing some daily postgame fencing with newsmen, said it was "easier to play in a tight race than to answer some of these questions." It wasn't easy against Cleveland. The Tigers ,trailed 2-1 until the fifth, when Mickey Stanley walked, Aurelio Rodriguez doubled and Eddie Brinkman laced a two-run single. Frank Duffy homered fof one of six Cleveland hits off Joe Coleman, who promptly said, "I think Baltimore is the team to beat." The Red Sox also came fro m behind to beat Milwaukee. They trailed 3-1 against Skip Lockwood until the eighth when Tommy Harper beat out a bunt, Carl Yastrzermki singled and Reggie Smith homered. Ben Oglivie then doubled home an insurance run. The White Sox broke a skid that saw them lose six of seven by downing the Twins despite Harmon Killebrew's 537th career homer for Minnesota, moving him ahead of Mickey Mantle into fourth place on the all-time list. Chicago snapped a 2-2 Ue with three runs in the seventh, including pinch hitter Tony Muser's tie-breaking double and a triple by Pat Kelly. "We're back on the track," said Manager Chuck Tanner. "We're only three games behind. It should be a very interesting series against Oakland." Paul Splittorff scattered eight hits as Kansas City beat Texas. The Royals scored three times in the first inning, with Lou Piniella delivering a two-run double. P. N. & 00.

By JERRY LISKA CHICAGO (AP) — "I didn't get the ball back and I didn't win the game for us." That was the disconsolate reaction of Harmon Killebrcw of the-Minnesota Twins last night after slamming the 537th homer of his career against the Chicago White Sox to grab undisputed No. 4 spot on the all-time homer list. Killebrew's arching blast into the upper left field stands at White Sox Park followed a sixth-inning opening single by Rod Carcw and pulled the Twins into a 2-2 tic. But the Pale Hose scored three runs after two were out in the bottom of the seventh for a 5-2 victory and pulled to within three games of the idle Oakland A's in the American League West race. Killebrew now is one ahead of Mickev Mantle's 536 total but still trails far behind Babe Ruth (714), still-active Hank Aaron (667) and Willie Mays (654) in the all-time homer list. "No, I didn't get the ball," said the balding, mild-mannered Killebrew. "It bounced back into the field, but Rick Reichardt (Sox centerfielder) picked it up and threw it over the left fieid stands. "Furthermore, it seems that whenever I hit a milestone homer, it doesn't help us win a game." Sport Shorts WINNIPEG (AP) - The Russian hockey team, whose 4-1 loss Monday night left the eight-game series with Team Canada tied at one victory each, went to the movies Tuesday night, prior to tonight's third game.
