The Railroaders, who were scheduled to play Bruce in the B-C Baseball Finals at Frostburg State, drove almost 100 miles, part of the way in a drizzle, to Cumberland only to find out that the game had been postponed several hours earlier be- cause of wet grounds. "The guy in charge up there called us about 9:15,15 minutes after we left," Brunswick coach Delphy Gaither said. "He called the school but the only person he got hold of was the janitor." The quick thinking janitor immediately called the state police and asked them to stop the bus before it got too far. "They agreed to do it, but we somehow managed to get through Twins Outslug Senators, W-9 WASHINGTON (AP) - Tony Oliva's single broke an llth inning tie and then Jim Holt's base hit delivered two more runs as Minnesota held off rallying Washington for a 10-9 victory over the Senators Sunday. The Twins had opened a four- run lead when Rich Reese, a pinch hitter for a pinch hitter, ripped a sixth inning grand slam homer. But Washington nibbled away at the margin, pushing two runs across in the eighth and two more in the ninth to tie it. Then in the llth, consecutive singles by Leo Cardenas, Harmon Killebrew and Oliva gave the Twins the lead again. Minnesota Manager Bill Bigney again successfully used a pinch hitter for a pinch hitter with Carley Manuel delivering a single to load the bases and Holt's hit brought two more runs across. The Twins needed the extra runs, too, because in the bottom of the llth Frank Howard ripped a two-run double. But rookie right-hander Steve Barber, the Twins' seventh pitcher, came on to get the last out. Reese's homer came Bob Allison was announced as a pinch hitter and Washington switched from lefty George Brunet to right-hander Dick Bosman. Rigney went to Reese, a left-handed hitter and after two wide pitches. Reese connected against the Scoreboard in right. Minnesota 300 004 00003-10192 Washington 002 010 022 02-9140 11 innings .

The bus continued on until It got almost to Cumberland. "A state trooper than caught up with the bus and pulled the bus over," Gaither continued. "Actually I was sitting in the back and didn't realize at first that we were being stopped. "He told the driver to call Brunswick High School and the driver relayed the message to me. At that time I realized what had happened." The bus pulled into Gj^berland and Gaither went to a i-ay phone and called the janitor who gave him the message. He tried to get told of the Cumberland official in charge of the finals but could- t reach him. So the bus turned around and leaded back on the long and rather rustrating trip to Brunswick. Gaither wait home and took a nap before calling the official in Cumberland again. "When I got hold of him he »aid I probably really wanted to give him heck," Gaither commented. "But I told him it was ust one of those things." "The boys felt downhearted, but they are o.k. The Cumberland official did at east bat .500. He managed to get hold of Joe Polce, coach of TJ which was scheduled to play in .he Class A-A Finals at 4 p.m., and let him know that his game lad been postponed before the Patriots started on their trip. Meanwhile Brunswick will try it again Wednesday. They will again have to play at Frostburg and make that long trip. "It might be a good idea to call right before we leave and make sure the game is still on" Gaither said with a laugh. sent home catcher Andy Etchebarren who had doubled and moved to third on a wild pitch by loser Marty Pattin. Rettenmund hit a two-run homer in the top of the eighth that highlighted a four-run surge by the Orioles. Milwaukee bounced back and chased Baltimore starter Mike Cuellar with a four-run surge of its om. The big blows were a run-scoring single by Roberto Pena and a three-run pinch homer by Phil Roof. Watt replaced Cuellar and after giving up a walk to Tommy Harper, who stole second, fanned Ted Kubiak to end the threat. Watt also got out of trouble in the ninth. Ted Savage had put Milwaukee ahead in the first inning with his third home run of the season.

(AP Wirephoto) JO-3, Behind Englar Spires Win Second Game Greg Englar, who was knocked out of the box in the first inning of last week's game against Martz Insurance, redeemed himself Sunday as he pitched the Frederick Spires to a 10-3 win over tough Atlantic Masonry at McCurdy Field. The big righthander allowed only five hits and did not give up an earned run. His control was excellent as he only walked one and had the visitors guessing all day. "He threw with his head and not just his arm," Spire coach Jack Patterson said. The win was Englar's first of the year and evened the Spires mark at 2-2. Englar not only showed improvement, but so did the defense. Although the Spires committed four errors it was a far cry from the seven they made last week. In order to bolster his defense Patterson used Pat Patterson at second and moved Jim Snoots from second to third. Wayne Ahalt was taken out of the starting lineup. "It hurts our hitting, but we are much better defensively with Patterson in," the Spires coach said. ; For awhile it looked like a Mrs. Jacobs Now Has Two Three Yedi* Old Champions repeat of last week when Atlantic took a 2-0 lead after the first two innings. But Frederick hopped on Atlantic starter Bill Wright for five runs in the third end it was never a contest after that. Three of the runs came in the third on a three-run homer by Gary O'Bryan, former Frederick High star, who was playing his ?irstgamewiththeSpires. As usual Frederick hit the ball well with 13 hits including three by Larry Myers, Phil Ranne- berger and Larry Ahalt added two each. Patterson was not only pleased with Ahalt's hitting, but alsp his defense. Ahalt was starting in the place of Bill Seidling who is out with a pulled muscle Every starter in the Spires lineup had at least one hit.

NEW YORK (AP5 - The 3- year-old division, racing's glam- or class, went into the Triple Crown series in a turmoil and nothing much was changed Sunday following the Belmont Stakes. Mrs. Ethel D. Jacobs' High Echelon won the Belmont Saturday by charging through the slop at Belmont Park for a three-quarter- length victory over Thomas F. Fleming Jr.'s Needles N Pens. The victory came with Mrs. Jacobs' Preakness-winning Personality and Kentucky Derby winner Dust Commander on the sidelines, but it was accomplished over a grueling I 1 /? miles and it put High Echelon into solid contention for the division championship. There were some observers who thought, even before Personality was withdrawn from tue Belmont, that High Echelon would be the better of the two over the added distance of the final jewel of the Triple Crown. High Echelon had closed fast to be third in the 1% -mile Derby, to be fourth in the 13-16- mile Preakness and to be fourth in the I 1 /?-mile Jersey Derby. Trainer John Jacobs still considers Personality his ace but did say before Personality was declared out of the Belmont that if High Echelon won, "I wouldn't be surprised." "I lost my ace but had a lot of faith in High Echelon," Jacobs said after the $158,750 Belmont. "He's a true distance horse and proved it today." Although there is no clear-cut 3-year-old champion at this stage, High Echelon's victory definitely proved that Jacobs has a legitimate one-two punch. Personality, who developed a minor cough on Thursday night before the Belmont, was a dis- Dust Commander is through for the summer after coming off appointing eighth in the Derby his ninth-place Preakness run after he had won the Wood Memorial, a major Derby prep. He then came back to win the Preakness and the Jersey Derby. ' The victory for High Echelon was his first in 10 starts this year but it boosted his stock considerably because it came in what many horsemen considered to be the toughest of the Triple Crown races. Raymond M. Curtis* My Dad George still remains a champion contender, although his chances were hurt by his Belmont showing. Winner of the Flamingo and Florida Derby and second in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, My Dad George apparently did not like the sloppy track and finished fifth in the Belmont. with a sore ankle, but the Derby winner could get back into the picture with a strong showing in the weight-for-age races in the fall. The weight-for-age races also could produce a surprise champion. But the leader right now still appears to be Personality, who is expected to get back into action next month, with High Echelon next. High Echelon won the Belmont by charging through the middle of the stretch to pass Brookmea de Stable's Climber and Her-Jac Stable's Naskra inside the eighth pole and then withstand Needles N Pens. Ridden by John L. Rotz, High Echelon covered the I 1 /? miles in 2:34 for a winning mutual payoff of $11 and first money of $115,000. Needs N Pens, making his first stakes start of the year and pointed for the Belmont by Trainer Harold Goodwin, finished a neck in front of Naskra, who had a head advantage over the pace-setting Climber. Lotz Whips Lou Graham To Win Open CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Dick Lotz, a refugee from the rabbit ranks, survived the grinding pressure down tl stretch Sunday and scored h second victory of the year, taking the title in the S 150,000 Kemper Open Golf Tournament. The 27-year-old Lotz overhauled faltering Lou Graham and coasted in with a one under-par 71 and a 72-hole total of 278.
