By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Ballimore Manager Earl Weaver was in no hurry to find oul. the result of Tuesday night's Yankees-Brewers game . . . all he did was keep a phone line open between his hotel suite in Detroit and Mil- w a u k e e ' s County Stadium throughout the game. Baltimore had 'gained a share of the American League East title in the afternoon by heating Detroit 7-6, and a loss by the Yankees in their night game at Milwaukee would mean the Orioles would win the AL East outright. Andy Etchebarren, who drove in the winning run against Detroit with a looping double in Ihe ninth inning, was Ihe bearer of good tidings on the phone in Weaver's suite. The Yankees and Brewers were tied 2-2, but Milwaukee had the bases loaded with one out in the lOlh inning, and sludger George Scolt was about to step to the plate. "Scolty's going lo get this hi right here for us," Etchebarren predicted. He was right. Scott hit the first pitch from the Yankees Doc Medich for a run-scoring single up the middle, giving the Brewers a 3-2 victory and giv ing the Orioles the division title for the second straight season and f i f t h in six years. 'It's a base hit -- we win!' Etchebarren yelled, droppin the phone in his excitement Weaver jumped out of hi c h a i r , let out a shoul of joy an clashed aboul Ihe room, pump inp every hand in sight. Etchebarren and the two oil er players in the room, Dav McNally and Brooks Rohinsor t h e n raced down the hall of th hotel to pass the word to th rest of the players. Elsewhere in the America League, Minnesota blanke Texas 6-0, Boston beat Clevi land 7-4, Chicago edged Kansa City 2-1 and California shut ou Oakland 2-0. Ballimore was languishing in Cards Sign Bell ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Defensive tackle Boh Bell, released by the Detroil Lions prior lo the beginning of Ihe National Football League season, has been signed as a free agent by Ihe St. Louis Cardinals, it was announced Tuesday. Bell, a fi.fool-4, 250-pounder from Iho Universily of Cincin- oati, was Detroit's No. 1 draft choice in 1971 and played for the team during the last three seasons before being released. fourth place launched a Aug. 29 IQ-game when it winning streak, ant! the Orioles stayed hot down the stretch with a 27-6 record. The victory over Detroit was Baltimore's erghth in a row. "This is the most satisfying of the division titles because of the way we came back," said Etchebarren, a reserve catcher who batted just .225 in 61 games but was the hero Tuesday. His looping double, a lazy fly ball down the left field line which was held f a i r by the wind, drove in Brooks Robinson from first base with the winning run in the ninlh. The Tigers pulled into a 6-6 e in the eighth inning on sin- es by Gary Sutherland aand 1 Kaline, an error by Brooks obinson, a sacrifice fly by Bill rcchan and a run-scoring ouble by Dan Meyer. Balti- lore avoided further scoring y getting Aurelio Rodriguez to round into an inning-ending ouble play with the bases oaded. The Orioles had taken a 6-4 cad in the top of the eighth on. two-run single by Tommy Davis. Earlier, Freehan smacked a air of home rims for Detroit vhile Rich Coggins and ex-Tiler Jim Northrup had two-run icmers for Ballimore. Brewers 3, Yanks 2 The Yankees looked like they vould take the race down to he final day when they = rabbed a 2-0 lead over the 3rewers in Ihe seventh inning, 511iott Maddox tripling home he firsl run and then scoring on Lou Piniella's single. But the Brewers tied the score off Yankee ace Doc Med- ch in the eighth on triples by Bob Hansen and Don Money and a sacrifice fly by Sixto Lc/.- cano. They won it in the 10th when rookie Jack Lind led off with a double, moved to third a sacrifice and, after a pair of walks, came home on Scott's single. Yankee Manager Bill Virdon, composed as ever following the loss, said the Orioles gained decisive momentum when they swept a three-game series from the Yankees Sept. 17-19. "I thought we should have won one game from Baltimore in September, but we didn't do it," Virdon said. "I thought that was the difference in the season. If we had won one oi those games, I think we would have won the division." Angels 2, A's 0 C a l i f o r n i a rookie F r a n k Tanana fired his f o u r t h shutout of the season, scattering six hits and striking out 10 in raising his record to 14-19.
