But there was another Ruthian record that even Aaron himself didn't know about · homers including World Series and All-Star games. He tied it Tuesday night with a homer that beat the Philadel phia Phillies 2-1 in 10 innings. "Oh, no, you're kidding Aaron exclaimed upon lea mini of the feat.

(AP Wirephoto) Ryun, Jipcho To Duel Big Battles Expected In ITA Meet ^^ · . . . . _ . ,, , . * , _ i TX-II _ « njTn.. frr»nf oarlv NEW YORK (AP) -- A dual between Ben Jipcho, the durable Kenyan prison guard, and Jim Ryun, the world record holder, in the mile is expected to provide a fitting climax tonight to Ihe International Track Association's second season at Madison Square Garden. Jipcho, holder of the world steeplechase record with a time of 8:14.0 and the second fastest clocking in the mile with 3:52.0 compared to Ryun's mark of 3:51.1-has consistently beaten the struggling American on this eason's ITA circuit. But Ryun, a three-time Olympian coming off his best showing 4:01.6 effort at Dallas on May 17-figures to make an all-out effort to beat the virtually unbeatable Jipcho. Both will be trying to be the tirst to break the four-minute barrier, which has yet to be accomplished on the ITA circuit this year. Jipcho, winner of 17 of 19 races- at either one or two miles, has the season's fastest clocking in the mile, 4:00.6. He has said he can crack the still magical four-minute mark if the first half-mile pace is fast. In that case, the pace would have to be made by Keith Mun- Sam Bair or Chuck LaBenz 1 since neither Jipcho 'at 18 feet, 5% colorful Steve 'ront early. A'"itlier two-man battle looms in the pole vault between bitter rivals Bob Searen, the 1968 Olympic champion and world record holder nchcs, and Smith, the only man to clear 18 feet indoors, with a best of 181K. Seagrcn. and Smith are not on speaking terms, and a victory by one is particularly distasteful to the other. Consistent and underrated Chris Fisher, the leading money winner of the ITA tour in iU two years of existence and one of the two runners to beat Jip- cho this season, will be trying add to his earnings 4 Cycle Biiilt-in Soft Food Disposer Dual Detergent Dispenser · 3 Wash Levels 1 Rinse Aid Dispenser 1 Sound Insulated AMERICAN LEAGUE BATTING (100 at bats) Carew, Min, ,405s R.
