Baseball Roundup r AMERICAN LEAGUE The pitching Perrys did their thing Tuesday night and, for what may have been the first time ever in their careers, Jim wound up wetter than Gaylord. Batters have always accused, Gaylord of loading up the baseball with something moist but they couldn't blame Jim if he was serving wet ones against Detroit. That's what happens when you're working in the rain. It was drier in California, where brother Gaylord Perry tried for his illh victory of the season for Cleveland but lost to the Angels 3-2 In 11 innings. Elsewhere in the American League, Chicago blanked New York 2-0, Texas shut out Milwaukee 4-0, Kansas City topped Boston 4-2 and Baltimore defeated Oakland 5-1. The Twins and Tigers spent 3 hours, 26 minutes on the field in Minnesota and only 1:48 of that time was taken up with playing baseball. There was a 40 minute rain delay in the fourth inning and then, when the game resumed, the teams made it into the seventh before the skies opened again. By that time, Perry and the Twins were leading 3-1 and rooting for the moisture to keep coming. Rod Carew drove in two of Minnesota's runs with a pair of singles and Tony Oliva picked up his first RBI with another hit. Gaylord mowed down the first 12 California batters and took a 2-0 lead into the seventh inning. But Mickey Rivers doubled and Vada Pinson singled before Bob Oliver chased both runners home with a double. That sent the game into overtime and the Angels won it in the llth when Perry hit Rivers with a pitch to open the inning. An infield out advanced the runner and then Oliver was walked intentionally. Ken McMullen bounced to short and the Indians went for the inning- ending double play. But Jack Brohamer's relay to first was wild and Rivers scored. NATIONAL LEAGUE "When I heard that thing pop, I knew it was time to go home." said Atlanta Braves pitcher Pat Jarvis. The "thing" was Hank Aaron's bat and the "pop" was his 650th career home run, a whack that helped Atlanta beat the clownish New York Mets 65 in 10 innings Tuesday night. Actually, it should have never gotten that far in the first place. For the second straight night, New York center fielder Tommie Agee committed a crucial error that permitted a late Atlanta comeback. Aaron's drive, moving him closer to Babe Ruth's record 714. was belted deep into left- center field. But he would have never had the chance had not Agee dropped his line drive in the eighth inning.

Milwaukee 0 Minnesota 3, Detroit 1, 6 innings, rain The Braves eventually scored three runs off Tom Seaver to tie the game at 5-5 and set the stage for Aaron's dramatic wallop in the 10th, his llth homer of the season. "Tommie is a helluva ballplayer," said Aaron, going to the defense of the Mets' outfielder. "About all you can do is talk to yourself when things like that happen." The loss dropped the Mets one-half game behind the Pittsburgh Pirates in the National League East. The Pirates' game with San Francisco was postponed by rain Tuesday night. Elsewhere in the National League, the Cincinnati Reds defeated the Philadelphia Phillies in a doubleheader, 8-4 and 42; the Los Angeles Dodgers trimmed the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1; the Montreal Expos defeated the Houston Astros 51 and the San Diego Padres turned back the Chicago Cubs 43. Cincinnati continued to streak with its double triumph over hapless Philadelphia, recording its 13th victory in the last 14 games. PAMPA, TEXAS MthYEAR 13 Wednesday, June M, 1972 Finley Buys Memphis Pros SHAVING STROKES by Frank Beard 51-Putting Over Humps Here's a putt that intimidates a lot of average players. Let's assume I have a 30- footer. Twenty feet from me (10 feet from the hole) there is a hump and then a down- slope to the hole. It's a rather common challenge. The first thing to do is forget the hole. The mistake many people make is to putt at the hole and go 10 feet past it. Instead, imagine that the hole is just over the hump. If you putt on that assumption, the downslope will take the ball the rest of the way. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) (NEXT: Slowing Your Swing.) Nicklaus 6-1 Favorite For U.S. Open Crown PEBBLE BEACH, Calif (AP) — Jack Nicklaus carries a torrid love affair with a golf course into the 72nd U.S. Open championship Thursday as the solid 6-1 favorite to add the second leg to an unprecedented professional Grand Slam. "This is the finest strategy golf course in the world," the Masters titleholder said as he prepared for his final tuneup today on the wind-whipped Pebble Beach links that has most of the other 149 competitors chewing on their fingernails. 1 ' You have to use your head to win here." Nicklaus added. "Like Augusta, it is a position course. You must place your tee shots in the right position." Nicklaus, who needs to add the U.S. and the British Opens and the U.S. PGA to his list of 12 major championships to complete a sweep that has es- ASU To Face Temple Xonight OMAHA. Neb. (APi -Sixth- rated Temple stands in the way of top-ranked Arizona State tonight as the 26th College World-Series resumes play. Tuesday's doubleheader in the double-elimination tournament was washed out by rain and wet grounds. Defending two-time champion Southern California, (47-13-1), meets Texas, (409). and Arizona State (63-41. tangles with upstart Temple (33-14) in tonight's games. "The rain probably won't help any of the teams," said Arizona State coach Jom Brock, whose club is the only unbeaten in the field now down to four. The tournament could end Thursday if Arizona State remains unbeaten, but would extend to Friday—weather permitting—if the Sun Devils lose. Little League Scores Duncan Insurance blanked VFW 16-0 in the first National Little League game last night. Roy Conner was the winning pitcher. Mark Coufal was two for three at the plate. In the second game Moose Lodge held Holmes Gift Shop scoreless to take a 10-0 decision. Brent Dabbs got the win. Elliott Crawshaw got three hits in four trips to bat. Chase Oil beat Pioneer Natural Gas 15-10 in the first farm league game of the evening. Ford's Body Shop edged Pampa Wholesale 11-10 in the second tilt.

"I like Pebble Beach better than any of them." he said. It was here that he won one of his two U.S. Amateur titles, in 1961, and the Crosby in 1967 and 1972." Nicklaus' ardor for the 6.815- yard course that winds along the crashing waves of Carmel Bay is not shared by many of his adversaries in the starstudded field teeing off Thursday at 10:30 a.m. EOT. "If it's such a great golf course." groused Frank Beard, "why do they have to add 100 traps and add acres of knee- high rough?" Both Arnold Palmer and South Africa's Gary Player chimed in with criticism of the fresh sand in the bunkers. "I think there is too much sand—you can lose a ball in the bunkers," said Player. "At all Open courses, you can expect new rough, tighter fairways and new sand," added Palmer. "1 think the new sand could have been added a year ago to allow time to settle. Former Masters champion George Archer, a native of the area, had the most graphic reply when asked what he thought, about the course. "What course?" Archer answered. "I can't find it. After practicing here, I've got to go home and let my mind recuperate." Babe Ruth Scores Grant Supply beat the Lions Club 9-6 in the first game Monday niht. The winning pitcher was Musgrave.

Cuyler Defending champion Lee Trevino, recovering from a case of viral pneumonia, was due to make a dramatic appearance on the scene today and perhaps go into the tournament without a practice round. He rates as a second choice behind Nicklaus at 8-1 along with Player and young Jerry Heard, who has won more than $100.000 on tour this year. Britain's Tony Jacklin is snapping back from his slump of 1971 and the 42-year-old Palmer, honed by 21 days of unbroken golf, is seeking his first major title since the 1964 Masters. NEW YORK <AP) - In this age of sports expansion, the American Basketball Association is contracting. But the league is adding one of sports' most colorful owners—Charles 0. Finley. An 11-team league since its birth in 1967, the ABA will operate only nine clubs next season. The Pittsburgh Condors and the Florldians were dissolved Tuesday. At the same time, the controversial Finley, who says his middle initial "is 0 for owner," acquired the Memphis Pros, leaving football as the only major professional sports that he's not involved as a proprietor. He already owns baseball's Oakland A's and hockey's California Golden Seals. While Finley was saving the Pros with a last-minute offer, the ABA's two other insolvent franchises—the Condors and the Floridians—were going down the drain. Commissioner Jack Dolph, who has submitted his resignation, effective when his three- year contract expires in October, disclosed the development late Tuesday. "The league has purchased, at undisclosed terms, the franchises of Florida and Pittsburgh, and approved the sale of the Memphis franchise to Charles 0. Finley," said the commissioner. Dolph explained that Finley's acquisition of the struggling Pros is subject to approval in principal by the Memphis stockholders and the league's counsel. The Pros currently are a community-owned team, with more than 4,600 stockholders having paid $5 a share last year to keep the team alive. Representatives of the Pros and league attorney Martin Heller were in Chicago today to confer with Finley. Terms of the deal were not released, but it was learned Finley placed $109,000 in the ABA's bank account Tuesday to cover the Pros' debts to the league. He reportedly will assume Memphis' other debts.
