Wednesday night, Sisler sent Jim.OToole to the bullpen to men and got Richie Allen to hit into a bases-loaded force play in the ninth inning to save the win. "I can do anything," was O'Toote's comment afterward. Sisler said O'Toole still would start Saturday despite his "workout."

Bill Monbouquette blanked the Yankees to pick up his 15th victory in 26 decisions against New York. Monbouquette allowed only six hits and Ed Bressoud gave him all the margin he needed with a solo homer in the fifth. The Red Sox picked up an unearned run in the sixth off loser Jim Bouton (3-3). Throws Five-Hitter Dave McNally scattered five hits and rookie Paul Blair ignited a four-run first Inning with a leadoff homer for the Orioles.
