Bosox Split With Nats, Fail To Gain In AL Race Bf STAN COLOftUG S'atf Wntw WASHINGTON -- The Boston Ked So* pennant express was almost derailed Monday as they .'.ad to come from behind to salvage a split in the double- Leader with the Washington Senators before a Labor Pay i-owd Oi 32,355 in D. C. Stadium. The Red Sox, shooting for their first pennant since 1946, lost the first game, 5-2, but mnaged to win the second game, 6-4, by coming up with [our runs in the sixth inning. The first - game loss could prove costly to the Red Sox, ·.vho had just lost three out of four games to Chicago, and had hoped to fatten up on the second - division clubs. They needed help in their four - run sixth inning in the form of a throwing error by Dick Lines that opened the gates. The error came with men 0:1 first and second and none out, when catcher Mike Ryan bunted down the third base line. Lines picked up the ball and fired to third for what should have been an easy out, but instead the ball sailed over the third baseman's head, allowing one run to score arid putting rtien on second and third with none out. Jerry Adair followed with a pinch-single, driving in two ions Until then, the famed Red Sox bitting attack was non existent except for a first-game home run by Carl Yastrezem ski, his 36th of the season. Even that blast, a two - run lob that sailed well over 00 feet was a bit tainted, coming a.ter Adair readied first on shortstop Tim Cullen's boo-boo. i Camilo Pascual and Darold : Knowles combined to pitch a four - hitter in the first game although the Red Sox did hit some shots off Pascual. Knowles pitched two perfect innings, and had the Red Sox swinging at air. i Meanwhile, the Senators hit- I ting attack, which has been virtually non - existent all year, i exploded in the persons of Ken McMullen and Frank Howard, a sort of minor - league Miiris- Mantle combination. : Howard had three hits in the f'ist game, including his 33rd homer in the seventh inning. Howard also singled in a run Li the first game. McMul.en, who is finally beginning to recover his batting eye after suffering an injury to his hand over a month ago, doubled before Howard's homer and also had three other hits for the day's work, includ- j ing his 16th homer in the night- THF NKWS, Frederick, Maryland Tuesday, September 5, 1967 Page 9 Time Out For Sports WITH ARTHUR D. POSTAL The Heart Of The Problem WHILE THE FIRST five teams in the American League are fitfhtinjr it out tooth and nail for the American League pennant, the Baltimore Orioles, who, by definition are the World Champions, are slumbering along- in eighth place, behind, of all teams, the Washington Senators, and ahead of the n i n t h place New York Yankees by only two games, as of yesterday. The rise and fall of the Birds can be told in many volumes, hut. mainly it comes down to a lack of pitching complicated by little hitting help from the first baseman and the three catchers. Kven Moe Drabowsky, the fine righthander who went a year and a half in the American League before absorbing a loss, has been taking his lumps of late, al- lhoii«h his elegant 1.78 ERA cannot be rated as poor. That the Birds are planning some changes for next season is obvious. They are currently going with young pitchers, planning to give Larry K'aney, the third string catcher a long hard look at the starting spot, and have virtually count( d out Wally Bunker. J'm Palmer and Dave McNally in their f u t u r e plans. NOW. THE ORIOLES have announced their biggest move to dafe in an effort to get into the fray for the 19G8 season, the firing of Daug Millward as coach of the Baltimore Bays, its entry in the National Professional Soccer League. Millward'.' Getting Fired? What in the world has the fate of the coach of th? league-leading team in the NPSL, on the verge of winning th: first league championship, have to do with improving the Baltimore Orioles? The answer to that question must lie in the nimble mind r.f Frank Cashen, the executive vice president of the Orioles who also oversees the Bays operation, because within the context of the absolute sinking of the Good Ship Oriole it was a rather insane move. '.lie fall of the Birds this season must rank with the sink- in'' · f the Titantic. Last season, they clinched the pennant in Jirly and cruised from that point on to the best performance by ;n American League team since Ralph Terry de- K ated the San Francisco Giants ! n l!ir2 to give New York a -·e: ii s in seven games. THE FOUR-STRAIGHT VICTORY of the Orioles was '.'rc'.'ted w i t h pushed out chests by the rest of the league, \vhich has been trying to live down the "vou started recruit- i n g N'.'grccs much later than we did" accusation thrown by the "other" league. There were many who doubted the ability of the Orioles to cmtinue as the class of the league, because the Oriole pitching was subject to arm ailments. Hut this doubt was firown-d out in the churus of hurrahs that greeted the 0 i'i!e victory in four straight in the World Series. T l u r e were a few people, hjwever w h o were naid to be i r i ' i ' - a ! of th ir e n t ' y . Even as the Series progressed, these Ivw \vcr- supposed to examine the Oriole personnel in the lit-'lit of next season, keeping in mind the medical dossiers of !!'··; on whose arms the Birds would wing to another championship. C N F C R T U N A T E L Y , THOSE few men, I'.'jrry Dalton and t h e ; : b ;ve-named Cashen failed to do so. instead j u m p i n g on '·'···· Ii -nd-wago'i a' 1 :! somewhat like Nero, sitting on the throne -A: .It- t h - flag fluttered away.

Millward Gets Bays' Axe With League Title In Sight The Senators pecked away in .he first game for single runs in , the second, fourth and fifth innings to take a 3-0 lead, before Yastrzemski's blast narrowed the margin to 3-2. Then, in the bottom of the seventh. Howard blasted his i homer to put the gams away. In the second game, the Sen- ators jumped off to a 1-0 lead, or a single by McMullen and a double by Howard. The Red Sox came back with two runs ni the second on a triple by termer Oriole Norm Siebern, a fielder's choice and a single ly second baseman Mike Andrews. The Nats came back with two runs in the bottom of the inning ] against Boston starter Jerry I Stephenson. Doug C;imi!!i, the | long lost catcher of the Sena| tors' roster, doubled his home · run production for the season | with a solo shot into the left- i field bullpen. Ed Brinkman, the good-field, j no - hit shortstop of the Sena] tors who came into the game batting a lusty .191, tripled into the center - field alley, then ' came home on Kd Stroud':; ground - out. McMullen's honer in the fifth stretched the margin to 4-2. But, then the Red Sox came up with their four - run sixth inning to pull ahead, 6-4. The f j n a l run coming in on single by Dalton Jones. Ken HarreLson, the former Nat and Athletic, who usually leasts on Senator pitching, wound up with only a belly ache, going 0 - for 5 for the uay's activities. With their backs to the wall iifter failing to gain at the expense of the Senators, the BO- SOX will attempt to Dull out the last name of the season between the two clubs by throwing Gary Hell against Frank Bertaina.

NEW YORK ( A P ) -- Duune Josephson lashed a scoring single with two out in the ICth inning, giving the Chicago White Sox a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees and a split of tneir doubleheader Monday. ' Tlie Yankees won the opener o-2, scoring all their runs on errors by Don Buford and Rocky Colavito. The White Sox remained in third place as a result of the split, one game back of first i place Minnesota, which played ,1 doubleheader against Cleveland Monday night. '· Josephsori's single off reliever Fred Talbot broke a 2-2 dead- i lock in the nightcap. Buford j drew a leadoff walk in the 10th, moved to second on Colavito's sacrifice bunt and held there as Tom McCraw beat out a hit down the third base line. Buford reached third as Wayne Causey forced McCraw, then raced home on Joseph's single to right. The White Sox threw away the opener in the fourth and "fifth Innings. They took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on Boyer's run-scoring sinf'e, but the Yankee.'; rallied in the fourth and had runners at second and third with one out when Steve Whitaker .^'-ouncied to Buford. Charlie Smith broke from third for the plate, and Buford appeared to have him, but the second baseman threw the ball into the dirt, and both Smith ..nd Mickey Mantle scored. Then in the fifth inning, Horace Clarke rapped the third of his four singles with two out, ;md Snrth lofted a high fly ball flown the right field line. Buford, racing over the back, caught it, but right fielder Cola- vitn slammed into him, knocking the ball from his glove as Clarke raced home with what turned out to be the winning run.

In a finish that would give incentive to even the most frustrated of losers, Lucketts came up with six runs in the bottom oi the eighth inning to knock off Mount Airy. 7-6, and hand the regular season MSL championship to Germantown. Mount Airy, which had been Japping at the heels of Germantown virtually all season finally lost the contest when its third uitcher of the game walked four men and gave a single and a double in the f a t a l eighth while Germantown was bree/ing to a 7-1 victory over Pleasant Walk. ·Mount Airy, \\hich needed to win two games to set up a playoff Wednesday for the regular season championship against Germantown, easily took the tirst gi'.me. with Chris Sole blanking Todd Steel. 9-.0 Then Mount Airy set to work on Lucketts, which had won only one game, that by forfeit. ?nd had lost 14 durin:; the .v SMl.
