Aging Stars Picked For All-Star Game By The Associated Press Ar Kaline of the Detroit Tigers and Frank Robinson of the California Angels, two aging outfielders with 30 All-Star nominations to their credit, Thursday were added "by Manager Dick Williams 'to the American League squad for Tuesday night's 45th classic. : W i l l i a m s and National League- Manager Yogi Berra each · filled out their rosters Thursday with 12 players for the game at Pittsburgh's Three Rivers Stadium. The 39-year old Kaline was the youngest player ever to win an AL batting title in 1955 when he hit .340 as a 19-year-old with the Tigers. It was his 18th nomination to the game. Robinson, 38 and like Kaline used mostly this season as a designated hitter, is the only player in the sport's history to win M o s t Valuable Player awards in. both leagues. He took the NL award in 1961 with the Cincinnati Reds and the AL title in 1966 with the Baltimore New American League Boss Plots All-Star Victory With Williams NEW YORK (AP) - In an ittempt to give the American League an edge against the Na- ;ional in baseball's All-Star Game July 23, AL President Lee MacPhail says league managers have agreed to try and ieep All-Star pitchers . from itching Sunday, so that they are well-rested. . "It's just an informal agreement," said MacPhail, who replaced Joe Cronin as AL President earlier this year. "I've always felt that .we should have some rested pitchers in order to win," he said Thursday. "It would be unfair to the fans to have the pitchers work Sunday and then not be I said the senior circuit was not available to pilch Tuesday." "Gaylord Perry of Cleveland, who pitched Thursday night, is expected to start for the American League Tuesday night. If MacPhaiL gets his wish, pitchers Steve Busby of Kansas City. Jim Hunter of Oakland, Luis Tiant of Boston, Wilbur Wood of Chicago and Mike Cuellar of Baltimore--all starters--also will be rested. The other pitchers.

Outfielders George Hendrick of Cleveland and Joe Rudi of Oakland, and catchers Ed Herrmann of Chicago and Darrell Porter of Milwaukee were other Williams selections. Berra--who was selected to 15 All-Star teams during his playing career with .the New York Yankees--found places on the NL squad for the league's leading hitter, Atlanta's Ralph Garr. and the runs-batted-in leader, Cesar Cedeno of Houston. . .

The National League lias won 10 of the last 11 All-Star Games, and holds an over-all 2518-1 edge. The AL last won in 1971. MacPhail also said the usual policy of using as many as pos sible might not be followed, i: the outcome was at stake. "I've talked with Dick (AI Manager Dick Williams) am we agreed to concentrate on winning arid that it was impor tant to keep the best team on he field at all times. I tolc Dick that winning comes first not keeping the players hap p'y." ' Last year, a record 54 play ers played in the All-Star game at Kansas city, won by the Na .ional League 7-1. Only foui players did not participate. LA GRANGE, III. (AP) -Lightly-regarded Kathy Ahern, finding her game and a course she likes at the same time, was the woman to catch today as the U, S. Women's Golf Tournament moved into its second round. When the firing ended in Thursday's opening round on the soggy 6,266-yard La Grange Cpuntry Club course, lanky Carol Mann, 1965 Open champion, said "this was the day to do it--the air was heavy, the teammate Reggie Smith, John Grubb of San Diego. and . Third baseman Mike Schmidt and second baseman Dave stops Don Kessiriger of Chicago Cash of Philadelphia, short- and Chris Speier of San Francisco,, and first baseman Tony Perez of Cincinnati were chosen to back up the starting infield, while Jerry Grote of Berra's Mets and the Cardinals' Ted Simmons were catchers added. Astros Prolong Cardinal Skid ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The Houston Astros, Lee May, Milt May and Tommy Helms are hitting a collective .281 for the year, but against the St. Louis Cardinals it's .437. Spraying salvos as usual in every direction, the three ganged up on the Cardinals again Thursday night in an 8-2 Astros National League runaway. Four Cardinal errors, including three by Ken Reitz, contributed to a Houston onslaught sending St. Louis dowri to its sixth successive loss. Bats of the two Mays and Helms, who combined for eight hits, also were prominent in a 13-hit assault on four Cardinal pitchers. "I can't explain it. Everybody else is getting me out," said the massive Lee May, who powered his 16th home run 'to go with a two-run double and single. "We get in streaks when I don't think it makes much difference who we're playing" noted Milt May, who added three singles and was intentionally walked. Lee May's lusty performance boosted his year's production to four home runs and nine runs batted in against the Cardinals on 15 hits for a .405 average in nine games. Milt May has II hits in 24 times at bat for a .458 mark and Helms, the Astros; scrappy second baseman, has 12 hits for .461. Five Tied For B.C. Lead ENDICOTT, N.Y. (AP) -"There's an awful lot o f - g o o c players on the tour who have never won," observed Don Iverson, one of five men tiec for first place going into to day's second round in the B.C Open Golf Tournament. Iverson fits that description-a good player who has yet to win--and so do most of the resl of the leaders in this chase for a $30,000 first prize in the $150, 000 tourney. Of the first 10 men after Thursday's opening round on the 6,804 yard, par 71 En Joie Golf Club course, only one--Lee Elder--has won. "I feel like my -old game is coming back," Elder said after his opening 67 left him one stroke behind the five men tied for the top at 66--Iverson, For rest Fezler, Mark Hayes, Jim Ferriell and Bruce Fleisher the runner-up in last week'; Quad Cities"0'peri.~ : Tied with Elder were Richan Crawford, Bob Payne, And North and Jim Masserio.

But Gaylord Perry, the toast of the town, still can't get rid of his Oakland hangover. Almost every lime Perry Faces the world champion A's, Kc wakes up the following morning with a big ache in his loss column. Thursday night was no different. The A's handled the hard- throwing right-hander for the 10th time in 12 lifetime decisions, beating the Indians 3-2 on 10 cent beer night. Elsewhere in the American League, the New York Yankees outslug'ged the Kansas City Royals 106; the Texas Rangers nipped the Boston Red Sox 2-1, and the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 5-3. The last time they held one of these cheap beer nights in Ileveland should have been the last time they held one of these cheap beer night in Cleveland. beer-drinking fans carried their party onto the field. When the umpires couldn't clear the field, they forfeited the game and awarded the victory to the But it wasn't.

Fairbanks also used an eight-iron. Texas Rangers. HANGERS 2, R E D SOX 1 Ferguson Jenkins, who won 20 games in six consecutive seasons while pitching for the Chicago Cubs, has his sights set on another 20-victory season. "I think I can win 20 games this year." Jenkins said after pinning down No. 12 by cight- hilting the Red. Sox. Run-scoring singles by Jim Spencer in the third and Cesar Tovar in the sixth slightly more than compensated for Jenkins' one bad pitch. TIGERS 5, TWINS 3 There's no place like home for a team that loses on the road. The Tigers got off the road Tuesday and finally got off losing street Thursday against Minnesota. Bill Freehan's two-run homer keyed a four-run third inning, giving the Tigers their second victory in the last 12 games. The loss was only the third for. the Twins in their previous 12. YANKEES 10, KOVALS 6 Right fielder Hal McRae misplayed Bobby Murcer's single, allowing the go-ahead run to score in a three-run seventh in ning that lifted New York to a comeback victory over Kansas- City. Trailing 6-5 going into t h a bottom of the seventh, the Yankees built their winning rally when .Sandy Alomar singled and was sacrificed to second base. Elliott Maddox was safe on an error, with Alomar holding. Murcer then singled to right to drive In the tying run and when McRae let the ball go through him for an error, Maddox hustled home with tile tie- breaking run.

H was - a day of embarrassment for the big money- winning no fewer than seven amateurs placed among the first 15 shooters firing 74 or better. "I'm just starting to get my game back together after playing really rotten golf for a year and a half," said Miss 'Ahern, whose fine round included five birdies and only one bogey. Miss Ahern is ranked 38th in the year's money race and the $6,000 top open prize would almost equal her earnings of 186 to date. . Along with Misses Massey and 'Hill, other amateurs, in contention were Peggy Coriley of Spokane, Wash., and Lahcy Smith of Snyder, N-Y. tied at 73--five strokes off the pace-with defending champion Susie Bernirtg, seeking a record third straight open crown, and Sandra Haynie.
