Hickman sinks Reds with bat Timmerman sorn? after three-hitter By T1IF, ASSOCIATED PIIESS "Tlie pilches just weren't Dicing where 1 wanted Tom Timmerman said apologet- cally. "I'd try to throw a slider nside bul it'd enu up outside, 1 guess 1 had a lot on 'em." The apologies were hardly necessary. Detroit's (all right- nander had so much on the hall Friday night that Chicago White Sox could harely get their bats on it, ending up with a measly throe singles. The Tigers, meanwhile, had no trouble whatsoever with the offerings served up by four Chi- ago hurlers, hammering out 14 hits for a 12-0 romp. Ed Bi-inkman and Norm Cash each drove in (our of the runs as Detroit retained its one-game American League East lead over Baltimore Orioles by snap- ping the White Sox seven-game winning streak. Baltimore also had a big night at (lie plate, pounding California Angels 12-2.

He hammered BHUngh- am's serves into Ihe seats in the first and third innings. "Billingham has always been lough on said Ilickmon. Those arc (lie only extra-base I've ever gotten off him." Hickman's barrage was good medicine for manager Leo Du- rocbcr, who came out o[ a hos- pital to manage his first game in a while. lie watched his team halt ad e 1 g h t -g a m e losing streak.

Nothing I can see as been accomplished." Blue, 1971 American League y Young Award winner with a 4-8 win-loss record, held out for Finley stood firm on The ajnounl the pitcher s asking represents a 300-per- ent increase. The negotiating session was jeld In a hotel under tight secu- ity. Blue and his lawyer and 'inley and Ills legal aide, Wil- iam G. Myers, attended along with commissioner Borne Kuhn and baseball's lawyer, Alex Tadden. Finley explained the session his way: "I made two concessions with he idea that Gerst and Blue would join in a statement to thfl iress what these concessions were. 'Then after spending two lours working out the state- ment, Gerst went to Blue and notified us they would not agree to make the statement ES to what the concessions were. Then it all broke up. I thought we were ready to sign. We had agreed to the conces> sions. "I offered And this was to he pro-rated starting April 27. In addition I agreed to a pre-payment of for a contingent four-year college scholarship which was part of Blue's original bonus arrange- ment when he signed in 1907. "I also offered as a bonus for his 1871 performance. This all amounted to an extra making his 1372 con- tract worth On March 31, the Athletics pul Blue on the restricted list, meaning he was ineligible to play for the first 30 days outlasted Boston Red Sox 96. Timmerman, almost exclu- sively a reliever before this sea- son, was hoping to develop into a fourth starter for the Tigers shaky showings in spring appear to have him headed for the bullpen once again. Once Ihe games starled count- ing, however, be was a different man. In his last ouling he pitched seven Innings of two-hit ball. His team-mates couldn't back him up, though, and he lost 1-0 to the Orioles. This time he was even more effective, limiling the White Sox to one hit through the first seven. Cash driving in lour runs In a ;ame was nol so unusual. He's a slueger. But for the light-hit- ting Brinkman it was a different story. It was the second home game for the Tigers and the second time he was a star. In [he first, he had hit a two-run homer. Baltimore assaulted the An- gels with a IG-hit attack-eight of them coming in a seven-run fifth halt a four-game losing skid. Dave Johnson had three hits and three runs baited In and Boog Powell, Brooks Robinson, Paul Blair and Mark Belanger drove in two apiece. Meanwhile unpredictable Joe Pepitone of Chicago Cubs had a stomach ache. Jim Hick- man played instead and turned out to be a real pain in the neck for Cincinnati Reds. Hickman, filling in for the ail- Ing centre fielder, belted a pair of three-run homers Friday lo carry the Cubs to a 10-8 victory over the Reds. "I didn't expect to play, not with a right-hander said Hickman. But the fact that Jack Bil- VANCOUVER (CP) Mu- hammad All, who has been vow- ing to look eight years younger when he meets Canadian cham- pion George Chuvalo in a heavyweight light here Monday, proved Friday night that, if notliing else, he sounds eight years younger.

The 30-year-old former world champion's latest poem is titled How It Is To Be The Greatest. It's only two words: "Me, wheeccee." While All was proving himself undisputed champion of pre- fight verbal battles, Irving Un- german was waging another battle to get the Vancouver ath- letic commission to reverse its decision that 10-ounce gloves are to be worn Monday night. SKES AID FOIl AU "Tlie heavier gloves are to Ihe advantage of said On- german, ClutvaTo's manager. "Lighter gloves are to the bene- fit of the harder hitter and Cliu- valo hits harder." Chuvalo has staled a prefer- ence for six-ounce gloves, but it had been generally believed eight-ouncers would be used. "It makes no difference to Ali said. Ten-ounce gloves or not, Ali still threatens to be the first man to knock the 34-year-old Canadian champ off his feet.

Ali is also looking ahead to a rematch with the only man who has ever beaten zier. "Ma and Frazier are going to sign in a few days. The negotia- tions are almost wound up." NOT CONFIRMED But there was no confirmation of this from Ixis Angeles where Jack Kent Cooke, Ihe man who put up most of tiie money for the first Ali-Frazier fight, has his headquarters.

"The horse ran all the way and 1 will run all the way, but I can't run farther than Uie law will let. me run." The Kentucky Court ol Ap- peals held today that the win- ner's purse from the 1968 Derby must go to Forward Pass, the. Calumet Farm colt which origi- nally finished second in the ace. Forward Pass was subse- quently elevated lo first after i was discovered that the banned medication phenylbulazone was in Dancer's Image's system during Ihe race. "I have not talked lo my at torneys yet, but I have teen let to believe the chances of today', decision being reversed are Fuller said. If there is no appeal, I am a the end of the road."

Timing considered major problems Canada wants changes OTTAWA (CP) Permission to Ice its best in world competi- tion is only one of several condi- tions Canada wants accepted before it re-enters iniernational hockey play. Lou LefaK'e, chief of the health department's fitness and amateur sport branch and a director of Hockey Canada, said in an interview Friday that agreement by Russia, Sweden and Czechoslovakia to play Na- tional Hockey League players next September should not bo regarded as the prelude to Can- ada again taking part in world competition. When the Iniernational Ico Hockey Federalion meets this summer, Canada also will lie seeking changes In the time in- ternational competitions aro held, and better financial ar- rangements as conditions of re- tuniing to world hockey. A key change is timing. They are normally held in March, which is late-season for mosl Canadian hockey leagues anc certainly not a time when pro- fessional players could be de (ached from their teams in tho NHL. Canada will be asking for (ho tcurnaTnents lo be held in Scp tember, normally training-camp time, or late May when tiic Stanley Cup playoffs are ove Lefaive also said that it costs MEMBERSHIP FEES MAGRATH GOLF CLUB Announces 1972 Golf Fees FAMILIES MAM AND WlfS MEN (Individual) WOMEN (Individual) HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS I U Membership! now available REMIT FEES TO P.O.

'And since ttie tournaments are in Europe 19 years of every 20, it's obvious changes are needed in financial arrangements." Canada also has some Ideas on which teams should be al- lowed to play in the tourna- ments. One thought is for the HHF to send out invitations to top clubs for round-robin play both in North America and Europe. OUR WILL PLAY Meanwhile Lefaive scoffs at talk that the best NHL players won't be available for the eight-game series against the Russians Ibis September. Boston's Bobby Orr and tho cream of Hie NHL will play, he says. Hockey Canada directors will meet within a few weeks to set up a special committee to pick the players and a coach.
