Seven-Run Inning Decisive Tigers Stay Cold, Twins Stay Hot By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Whether you believe in that vague, mystical force known as momentum depends on which side of the streak you're on. If you're Ralph Houk, you're a devout believer. If you're Frank Quilici well, then there's more to winning than impetus.^ As the major leagues' three- day All-Star break begins today, -Houk's Detroit Tigers are shivering, they're so cold. Quilici's Minnesota Twins, meanwhile, are burning up the joint. On Sunday, for example, Bob Darwin hit a two-run single and Eric Soderholm clubbed a three-run homer to highlight a seven - rein fourth-inning explosion that carried Minnesota :o a 10-7 victory over the Tigers, the Twins' 12lh victory in their last 15 games and Detroit's 13th loss in its last 15. In Sunday's other American League games, New York edged Kansas City 5-4, Oakland defeated Cleveland 6-3, California topped Baltimore 6-4, Texas tripped Boston 2-1 and, in a doubleheader, Chicago beat Milwaukee 6-2 before the Brewers bounced back to win the second game 5-3 YANKS 5, ROYALS 4 Bobby Murcer wrecked Kans a s City Manager Jack McKeon's strategy with a two- run bases-loaded double in a lliree-run seventh inning that led the Yanks past the Royals. With New York trailing 4-3 and men on second and third and two out, McKeon ordered Steve Mingori to load the bases by walking Elliott Maddox intentionally- But Murcer jumped on an 0-1 outside pitch and punched a double down the left field line. A's 6, INDIANS 3 and Gene Tenace bases. Pat Borque lied with a grounder, Ted Kubiak's two-run single lighlfghted a four-run seventh inning that beat Cleveland. A walk jind singles by Joe Kudi loaded the the game _ Kubiak singled and "Bill North tripled. ANGELS 6, ORIOLES 4 The Angels got two runs in the ninth on one of Mickey Rivers' three doubles, Dave Chalk's bunt single, Frank Robinson's sacrifice fly and Joe Lahoud's single to beat the Orioles. In His Last Ail-Star Appearance ." ' · " ' ' i. Aaron Will Start Game PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Hank Aaron, chosen to the National 1 League All-Star team for the 20th straight year, plays in his final mid-summer classic Tuesday night against the American League, whose leaders are determined to come out a winner. T h e 40-year-old · Atlanta Braves' slugger, who surpassed Babe Ruth's all-time career home run mark of 714 earlier this year, has liad little success in 22 All-Star : games, hitting only two home runs in 64 at- bats. Two All-Star games were held each year from 1959 through 1962; but Aaron missed the first game in 1962 because of an injury. "I'm honored to make It again," said Aaron, who was the NL's leading vote-getter with more than 2.6 million. The nation's fans chose the starting lineup, except for the pitchers. "It's a little something spe cial this year since it will be my last. I hope I can hit a homer for the fans." A capacity crowd of more than 50,000 is expected at Three Rivers Stadium and an esti mated 49 million will watch on television, acccording to NBC Game time is 8:15 p.m., EDT. Aaron, hitting .240 this season with 12 homers and a career to tal of 725, was expected to play right field for the first three in nings. The American League ha lost 10 of the last 11 All-Sta: meetings and has only 11 vie lories and one tie against 2 losses in the series. The AL las won in 197t Lee MacPhail, who becarm American League president ii January, has taken steps h hopes, win make the junior cir cuit a winner this year. Ameri can League, .clubs..have .'gon along with MacPhail's directiv to change their pitching. rota tions so that an All-Star pitche wouldn't work on Sunday. This action drew criticsm from Ail-Star pitcher Wilbu Wood of the Chicago White Sox ho worked Saturday instead f Sunday with just two days ff. "I don't mind because I ave a repuation of working 1th two days' rest," said the nuckleballing left-hander. But what is the objective of he American League races, to an in a division or to win the 11-Star game? Why should the ox or any other club be de- )ave Chalk, California; Carl Yastrzcmski, Boston. Outfielders -- Jeff Burroughs, ^exas; Bobby Murcer, New York; Reggie Jackson and Joe Kudi, Oakland; Frank Robinson, California; George Hendr- ck, Cleveland; Al Kaline, De- rived of using unday?" a pitcher on trbit. National League MacPhail said he has told AL Manager Dick Williams to con- entrate on winning. "We want he best team on the field. We we it to the fans. 1 told Dick job was to win the ball Same, not keeping the players appy." It was an indication hat Williams would not be us- ng the majority of his 28-man quad, which is the normal procedure. The National League says it las made no similar moves, al- hough ML Manager Yogi Berra, in' defense of his not picking Los Angeles' Dodger Tommy John, said: "He won't do us any good, he's pitching Sunday." Since then John, who has a 13-3 record, suffered an elbow njury. Cleveland's Gaylord Perry, who fell one game short of the American League record by winning 15 strarght'this season, was expected to get the starting nod for the AL.

(AP The U.S. Women's Open has prestige, but newly-crowned Open champion Sandra Haynie thinks it should also carry a purse to measure up to that reputation. Miss Haynie Sunday survived one of tlio most dramatic finishes in the meet's 29-year history, including a streaking performance by a couple of young men, for a one-stroke victory and her first .open title in a 13- year .pro career. Miss Haynie did it the hard way, ramming home a 70-foot birdie putt on the 71st hole and a clinching 15-foot birdie putt on the- final hole just when it appeared a- three-woman playoff was inevitable. That gave Miss Haynie, who earlier _this year won the Golf Asso- top $6,073 Ladies Professional ciation Open, the prize in the $40,000 event. Finishing a stroke behind, and collecting 52,573 each, were I9G5 champion Carol Mann anc Beth Stone, who finished before Miss Haynie's heroics. Still No. 4 in 1974 earnings with $51,008, Miss Haynie sale . "I certainly would hope the National Open purse is increasec in the future. MOST PRESTIGIOUS "This is the most prestigious of our tournaments, and I defi nitely would like to see the purse raised to meet that pres tige." Threatened boycott by some layers of this open over the lurse size never developed with irortiise of the sponsoring United States Golf Association o review the payoff, exceeded this year by two $100,000 events and several $50,000 outings. As for the fringe benefits of winning the open, Miss Haynie said endorsements and other bonuses fall far below the po- :ential of the winner of the men's U.S. Open. Her winning effort produced a 72-hole total of 295, a fat seven over par for the distance over the La Grange Country Club par 72 course which proved difficult. all the way for the 40 pros and 14 amateurs who finished. The final three holes appeared like the charge of the ill-fated light brigade, especially the exasperating, par four 70th hole, which first Miss Mann, then Miss Haynie and then Joanne Carner all double bogeyed. Miss Manri salvaged an apparent tie with Miss Stone as she dramatically punched an 8- iron approach to within 18 inches for a birdie four on the 72nd hole. That gave her a 75 for a 296 total to match Miss Stone, who finished earlier with a one-under-par 71. Mrs. Carner wound up with a 77 to tie Kathy Whitworth for fourth place at 297 worth $1,623 for each. THE PIZ/A DELIVERS!
