But he stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and two out in the bottom of the ninth inning and crashed a grand- slam home run off Boston Red Sox's Sonny Siebert to give the Indians an 8-7 victory in the first part of a The Red Sox came back to take the nightcap 5-2. Vukovidfs statistics were even worse than Lolich's. The 25-year-old infielder spent part of the 1970 and 1971 seasons with Philadelphia Phillies and showed a meagre .164 average in 225 at-bats with nary a home run. BIT 3-RUN HOMER So it was a distinct surprise when he unloaded a three-run homer off relief ace Sparky Lyle in the seventh inning that lifted Milwaukee Brewers, who obtained him in an off-season trade, to a 4-3 triumph over New York Yankees. Elsewhere in the American Heavy artillery just wasn't needed League, Kansas City split a twin bill with Chicago White Sox, losing 8-4 before winning 6- 1; Baltimore Orioles defeated Detroit Tigers 5-3, Oakland Ath- letics edged California Angels 3- 2 in 10 innings and Minnesota Twins beat Texas Rangers 6-4.

OUT OF GAS Boston, hcbbled by the ab- sence of team captain John Havlicefc, sidelined by torn muscles in the right shoulder, simply ran out of gas in the fi- nal period. Coach Tom Hein- sohn was unable to substitute as freely as he would have iik and his regulars were obviously tired in the late stages. Boston guards Don Chancy and Jo Jo White and centre Dave Cowens all eventually fouled out The key in the late going proved to be Frazier against White. The Celtic guard had 34 wints for the game, but was scoreless in the two overtimes. Frazier, meanwhile, hit 10 points in the extra periods. Rookie John Gianelli also ?ave the Knicks a big boost in he latter stages, coming off the >ench to score 10 points and battle finished with 33 the boards. BUYING TIRES?

Elks got the nod on nine minor penalties the Oil- ers were guilty of eight minor infractions as well as a 10- minute misconduct. In the A final the Elks and Cranbrook were in a 2-2 dead- lock heading into the firal 20 minutes before the Elks ex- ploded for five to take the easy 8-3 verdict.

Marty Holling- shead and Rob Price scored for Cranbrook. Cranbrook took 12 minors while the Elks got rapped with seven minors and a mis- corduct.

Oilers led 2-0 after the first period but Cold Lake battled back to even things up 2-2 go- ing into the third period. Oil- ers scored three times, once into an empty net, to seal the victory. Zelke, Scott McAvoy, Bob answered goals In the final stanza, including two while they were a man short, for the McCombie, Gary Soetaert and I win.
