Before Dick Allan Restores Order M»f*w««t Arfwmoi 11MB, Sot, fttay U, 1W4 · Mayberry Tags Bahnsen, Kaat By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS John Maybwry a fighter? Dick Allen a peacemaker? Unusual roles for both of them, but those were the parts they played Friday night. Mayberry. Kansas City's usually mild-mannered first baseman known more for his slugging exploits with a bat rather than his fists, surprisingly became incensed when he was struck just below the right knee by a pitch from Chicago White Sox pitcher Stan Bahnsen. The misguided toss came in the third inning, one inning after Mayberry had tagged Bahnsen for a solo homer. Mayberry t h e n charged toward the mound, after dropping his bat. and tagged Bahnsen with his fists, landing with both hands, as players from both dugouts and bullpens streamed onto the field. Several other fights broke out around the pitcher's mound and numerous p u n c h e s were thrown. Mayberry, in addition to clipping Bahnsen, landed shot to the jaw of Jim Kaat, another Chicago pitcher. ALLEN RESTORES CALM Finally, the controversial Allen, who has been involved in many fights, including a celebrated slugfest wilh former Philadelphia teammate Frank Thomas, restrained the angry Mayberry. When order was re stored after 10 minutes. May- berry was ejected but Bahnsen! was permitted to remain in the I game. Bahnsen probably wished he had not stayed around until the finish. He was the losing pitcher in Kansas City's 4-2 victory. In other American League games, the Boston Red Sox topped the Milwaukee Brewesrs 5-3, the Minnesota Twins routed the Texas Rangers 9-0. the Cleveland Indians downed the Detroit Tigers 3-1. the Balti more Orioles beat the New York Yankees 63. and the California Angels edged the Oakland A's 4-3. Mayberry's homer, his ninth of the season, gave Kansas City a 1-0 lead and the Royals went ahead 3-0 just prior to the brawl on Amos Otis' two - run single. Bahnsen said the pitch that hit Mayberry was a fast ball. Mayberry was apologetic about charging at Bahnsen and triggering the free-for-all. "I shouldn't have done it," he said. "I'm sorry. I just .forgot about the game. It's the first time I've ever done anything like that." RED SOX J, BREWERS 3 Home runs by Bernie Carbo and ton's i Juan Beniquez paced i's 12-hit attack that ct Bos- :arried the Red Sox to their sixth straight victory and into first place in the AL East, one-half game ahead of Milwaukee. The slugging Red Sox have scored 52 runs and pounded 85 hits during the streak. Carbo and Cecil Cooper have collected three hits for Boston, while Dick Drago pitched four- hit scoreless relief over the last 4% innings and earned h i s fourth victory in five decisions. TWINS S, RANGERS 8 Bert Blyleven. Minnesota's precocious 23-year-old right- hander, pitched a five-hitter for the 20th shutout of his major league career and received dome run support from Harmon Killebrew and Larry Hisle. Blyleven struck out 11. walked none and shackled Texas' Jeff Burroughs. Burroughs had driven in at least one run in his last 10 games--one short of the major league record--and saw his 12-game hitting streak end. Killebrew's homer was the 551st of his career. INDIANS 3, TIGERS 1 Fritz Peterson pitched a six- hitter and John Lowenstein sacrifice fly, helping tilt Ort- drove in two runs. Cleveland's victory. keying The Tigers wasted the 2,900th hit of Al Kaline's major league career and a sparkling relief performance by Woody Fryman, who allowed only one hit and no runs in six innings. ORIOLES S, YANKEES 3 Rookie Jim Fuller doubled home the tying run in the seventh inning and Enos Cabell delivered the tie-breaker with New York's Mel his fifth co«- oles hand Slottlemyre secutive loss. Dave McNally was the winner, with last-out help from Bob Reynolds. ANGELS 4, A's } The Angels' victory was their first in nearly three yean over Oakland ace Jim Hunter, who had beaten them eight straight times since July. 1971. California's Mickey Rivers extended his hitting streak to nine games with a single and a homer, while Oakland's Reggit Jackson hit in his 12th consecutive game. ----.
