DBS MOINES REGISTER Fri., July 25, Woody'a World "I got up on the wrong side of the bed . the side with the mouse trapl" McLain Trip Demonstrates Need for All-Star Ruling NEW YORK, N.Y. (AP) - The National League's decisive 9-3 victory over the American League in Wednesday's All-Star baseball game raises some interesting questions about the annual mid-season test. If the game is to be considered a measure of strength be tween the two leagues, some positive moves must be made to guard against a recurrence of Denny McLain's flying trip to his dentist in Detroit. Picked the Chair McLain, the only man ever to pick a dentist's chair over a chance to start in the All-Star game, tried to make the round trip from Detroit to Washington. He missed. . As a result of this visit to the dentist, as important as it may have been, the American League had to do without its starting pitcher. Denny arrived about 15 minutes after the game started and wound up pitching one inning. The relative ability of McLain and substitute starter Me Stottlemyre was not an issue. McLain, of course, was the glamdr boy, 31-game winner of 1968 and a 14-5 pitcher this year. • / Stottlemyre, regarded as one of the very best right-handers in the league, already had a 14-7 record for a Yankee team tha is going no place. / Stottlemyre was roughed up for three runs and 7 charged with the defeat. Need Rule It would seem that fan pressure would force commissioner Bowie Kuhn to issue some type of an All-Star rule requiring player personnel to be on the scene at a certain hour and to tpmain until the game is over. "It wouldn't have made any difference, the way those guys were hitting," said Mayo Smith, McLain's manager who also was managing the American League team. As it was, the American Leaguers prestige dipped again after a seventh straight All-Star setback. The series they once proudly dominated, 12-4, now stands 22-17-1 in favor of the National League. The Americans have not won since 1962. Although the Tigers did upset the St. Louis Cardinals las October and the American still holds a 39-28 bulge in World Series competition, thanks largely to the Yankees, the Nationa ha: won four of the last six. 25th Homer By Powell, Orioles Win BALTIMORE, MD.

After four -hits had given Iowa a pair in the fourth, the Bears polished off Gilliford with three more in the fifth to assume a 7-2 bulge. Key Hit Norton's double*.was.the key hit in a two-run sixth for the Oaks, but Jim Holt's leadoff triple led to a Denver run in the home half and the Oaks were faced with an 8-4 deficit as they came up in the eighth. Morris walked Morales with one out and Lachemann boomed a long drive over the left-field fence to trim it to 8-6. It appeared that Iowa's rallies were not destined to pay off as the Bears matched these runs in their hahV featuring a triple by Herman Hill and a single by Glover. Then came the Oaks' comeback. The victory enabled the Oaks to put a little breathing room between themselves and fifth- place Oklahoma City, which lost to Tulsa.
