With the win, the Orioles The relief pitching of Harvey Haddix, plus big hits by Brooks Robinson and Sam Bowens paved the way for the Orioles to triumph Friday night. Robinson slugged his bullpen in the fourth inning and Bowens followed with his 17th circuit, a shot into the left field seats to give the Birds a 2-0 lead. The White Sox bounced back to get a run off Milt Pappas in the sixth on a walk walk to Jim Landis, wild pitch and Floyd Robinson's hit.

But the Tigers are just as happy if not more happy with the play of Don Demeter, one of the players they received for Bunning. Demeter has become the big man with the bat for the Tigers in many , of their recent victories. He is specializing in aeiivering tne Key nits in the late innings. SHARES HONORS The right-handed slugger shared honors Friday night with Dave Wickersham as the Tigers clipped the Minnesota Twins, 4-1, at Tiger Stadium before over 14,000 fans to regain fourth place in the American League. While Wickersham went the route to gain his 15th win of the campaign, Demeter delivered three hits a single, double and homer and wound up the evening with three runs batted in to bring his season's total to 49. Demeter's first blast was a double in the first inning and scored Al Kaline, who had walked, after two were out. SHOOTS SINGLE In the third inning after Gates Brown had clouted homer No. 14 in the second stanza. Derheter shot a single to left Scoring Jerry Lumpe. The latter had doubled with one out. The Tigers then didn't score again until the seventh. This time Demeter socked his 16th homer well into the left field seats. The Twins, who had started the evening in fourth spot, paraded no less than seven pitchers against the Tigers. Manager Sam Mele had his men coming from the bullpen at a speedy pace, on changing moundsmen with the count one and two on Lumpe. Wickersham was helped along by a couple of double plays as he scattered si:: hits. WALK IS COSTLY The lone Minnesota run came in the fifth when pinch-hitter Bernie Allen walked and scored on a double by Jerry Kindall. It'll be luckless Hank Aguir-re's turn against Twins Saturday afternoon (Ladies Day at the Stadium). The teams wind vp their series with a twin bill Sunday, after which the Tigers take to the road, going to Boston, Los Angeles, Washington, and other points.

Venturi notched a pair of 33s Friday for a 66 to gi'e him a 137 total at tho end of 36 holes. Collins, who had a first-round 70, turned in a 67 the second time around. One stroke back was Mason Rudolph, who shot a 67 on Friday. Tony Lema, the Buick Open king, stood at 140 with rounds of 71 and 69. First-day leader Arnold Palmer slipped from 68 to 73 and 141 and was tied with IPMMies M. MIL a Frank Beard and Bob McCal lister. Deadlocked at 142 were Jay Hebert and Jack Nicklaus Charles Sifford, Bert Yancey and Ramon Sota, the latter from Spain, also had 143. Single rounds Saturday and Sunday will wind up the tourney, the last tuneup be fore golf's greatest head for Detroit's Oakland Hills and next week's world championships. START TO ARRIVE The greatest golfers are starting to gather at Oakland Hills for the $200,000 World Golf Championship. First of the 48 foreign stars to arrive for the classic, which opens Thursday, was Trevor Wilkes from Natal, South Africa. Meanwhile, a familiar and frequent sight at the course is that of Walter Burkemo, 1953 national PGA champion. For Wilkes the journey to Detroit was something like 5,000 miles. For Burkemo it's about 10. For both of them, however, the goal is the same: first place money of $35,000. champ. She defied rain and fog Friday to beat Mrs. Keith LeClair of Ann Arbor's Barton Hills, 4-3, at Plum Hollow. Miss Kazmierski made the turn, leading by three holes and closed out the match on the fifteenth. She's a sophomore at MSU. BALK COSTS RUN A balk by Pirates starter Bob Veale in the second inning enabled the Phils to score their first run. Then in the fifth, the alwaj's reliable Johnny Callison socked in the game's final tally. Meantime, the New York Mets ran their winning streak to five straight a record for them by blanking the Chicago Cubs, 7-0. COASTS FOR METS Jack Fisher coasted along for the Mets after being handed a five-run lead in the Soecer Action On Two Fronts One Michigan-Ontario Soccer League game is scheduled Saturday night with Teutonia playing the St. Basils team at first inning.

Lou Burdette suffered the defeat, his sixth against nine wins. The Houston Colts edged Milwaukee, 3-2, as Ken Johnson fashioned his ninth win of the season. Sun To SI line For Olympics TOKYO (Reuters) Sunny days were predicted Friday for most of the 15 days of the Olympic Games here Oct. 10-24. The Japanese Meteorological Agency said in a forecast Tokyo would have fine weather in mid-October from Oct. 10 to 20. But cloudy or rainy days were predicted for the rest of the month. Boufford's triple brought in Haddix in place of Pappas. Haddix proceeded to retire the next two batters and then became the winning pitcher when the Birds pushed over two runs in the ninth. STARTS DRIVE A single by Luis Aparicio started the Orioles' winning drive. Earl Robinson walked and then Brooks Robinson and Bowens followed wth run-producing singles. Haddix set down the Chisox in order in the ninth. Meantime, the New York Yankees fell five full games off pace as they went down to their fifth straight loss their longest string of the season by being blanked at Boston, 7-0. Don Heaffner curbed the Yankees with six hits and only once did the once-powerful Yanks get a runner past sec ond base. Heaffner was helped along by a barrage of three homers by his mates. Dick Stuart and Eddie Bressoud slapped round-trippers in the early going, but it was left for Catcher Bob Tillman to put the game out of reach when he clouted a grandslammer in the eighth. Ralph Terry was the starter and loser for the Yankees, who are 4V2 games behind the second-place White Sox. COLAVITO CONNECTS Rocky Colavito delivered his 30th homer of the season to help the Kansas City A's to nip the Washington Senators, 3-Z. Neat relief pitching by Moe Drabowsky, who didn't allow a hit after taking over in the fifth, featured the wins for the A's. Los Angeles and Cleveland were rained out and will make up the game in a doubleheader Saturday. VlV I Ves; T ----- rrf'ttr. i'n' iiiiiiii- urt 1 . tkf. Bt . 4t li : leys.

Manager Phil Frakes of Detroit Adray Appliance watched his team's game against Pittsburgh Friday in the third round of the All American Amateur Baseball tournament from the stands. He was in civilian clothes after taking a number of shots for a slight case of bronchitis. But the best medicine for Frakes came from his team who blasted the Penn-sylvanians, 17-2, for the third straight win without a loss. The Detroiters, who were to meet Baltimore Saturday, rapped out 17 hits and were handed 10 walks by seven Pittsburgh pitchers. Tom Binkowski finally found the range, knocking in six runs and scoring four times himself with a homer, triple and single. Bob Speer batted in two runs with a triple, two singles and a walk. Chuck Kline, pitching for the first time in two weeks, stopped Pittsburgh on three hits and struck out ten.

Ron Nanney turned in a five-hitter for the winners and struck out six- Thil Hudson's single and stolen base and Dennus Brown's single gave Adray its first run. Gary Szalka singled, stole second and tallied the winning run in the fifth on Roger Uren's double. strolled back and told him to quit. Linz continued. An exchange of words followed and Linz reportedly tossed the harmonica in the air and Berra batted it at Joe Peppitone, who suffered a slight cut on the knee. Berra retorted at that point: "I'll take care of you later." The fine was announced Friday and Berra had no other comment to make. Linz declared that "as long as I give a full effort on the field, I have a right to do what I want off the field." Veteran Yankee Coach Frank Crosetti called the bus incident "one of the worst" he ever had seen on a team. HOPPIN' AROUND By M. HUNTER HOPWOOD MICKEY LOLICII, the Tiger lefthander who flipped the three -hitter at the Angels Tuesday night, won't be able to , take his regular turn for, the Bengals until Sunday, Aug. 30. Mickey, now 13-7, is serving a two-week hitch in the Air Force National Guard, and he'll be getting his baseball via Ernie and Bob until his training stint is over . . . We asked the glib Air. Harwell how he was making out in his golf battles with Scheffing, the former manager, and Ernie conceded that he was breaking "about even." A further check with Bob brought out the fact that Ernie demands and gets three strokes for every nine . . . We'd be interested in matching them with Marsha Houghton, the 14-year-old miss from Modesto, Calif., who wowed the people at the U.S. Women's Amateur in Hutchinson, Kan., when she had two 77's in the qualifying round. THOSE OF YOU who have asked about George Kell, former Tiger broadcaster and American League batting champion, please be informed that George is struggling along down in Swifton, Ark., with a large farm, white-faced and Angus cattle herd, and a Pontiac-Oldsmobile-Cadillac dealership. This moved sports broadcaster BRUCE MARTYN to observe that "it appears that Mr. Kell has a license to steal." . . . Carlos Juan Baco and Babel Perez, president and general manager, respectively, of the Mayaguez Baseball Club of Puerto Rico, have been in town to negotiate for nine Tigers for play in the Caribbean winter league. JIM CAMPBELL, the Tiger general manager, has arranged for the two to talk with various prV? throughout the organization . . . and our dugout chat with BILL RIGNEY, the Angels manager, brought out this statement from Bill: "I've had a belly-full of Bo Belinsky and as far as I'm concerned, he'll never be on my ball club again. It's tragic for a guy to have all that talent and to dissipate it. And he not only hurts himself, he louses up others."

Slugging outfielder John (Boog) Powell, who suffered a fractured left wrist in Boston Thursday, may not be out a month as originally feared. Examined by a specialist in Baltimore, Powell was told that the injury was not as bad as indicated just a small chip in the wrist.

JOHN POWELL OLYMPIA, Greece (Reu ters) The Olympic Torch for the Tokyo Olympic Games was kindled in the presence of King Constantine of the Hellenes, at the Shrine here Friday.
