Detroit's (all right- hander had so much on the ball Friday night that Chicago While Sox could barely get their bals on it, ending up with a measly three singles. The Tigers, meanwhile, had no trouble whatsoever wilh the offerings served up by four Chi- cago hurlers, hammering out H lu'ts for a 12-0 romp. Ed Bi'inkman and Norm Cash each drove in four of Ihe runs as Delroit retained Its one-game American League Bast lead over Ballimore Orioles by snap- ping the Wlu'te Sox seven-game winning slreak. Baltimore also had a big night at (lie plate, pounding California Angels 12-2.

Once (he flames started count- ing, however, he was a different man. In his last ouliug he pitched seven liuiings of Iwo-liil ball. His team-mates couldn't bach him up, though, and he lost 1-0 lo the Orioles. This lime he was oven more effective, limiting the While Sox to one hit through (he first seven. Cash driving in four runs In a game was not so unusual. He's a slugger. But for the light-hil- ling Brinkman It was n differenl story. It 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 will! a IG-hit of them coming in H seven-run fifth halt a four-game losing skid. Dave Johnson had three hits and three runs baited In and Bong Powell, Brooks Ilobinson Paul Blair and Mark Belanger drove in two apiece. Meanwhile unpredictable Joe Pepitonc of Chicago Cuhs had a stomach ache. Jim Hick- man played instead and tumec out to be a real pain in the neck for Cincinnati Beds. Jlickman, fining in for the ail- ing centre fielder, belled a pair of Ihrce-run homers Friday to carry the Cubs to a 10-8 victory over the Keels. "I didn't expect to play, nol with a right-hander said Hickman. But the fact that Jack Bil- lingliam throws from the same side that Hickman hits from didn't bother the veteran out- "This session, the third that has gone down the drain, started Thursday at 2 p.m. and wenl on continuously until noon Friday.

Finley explained the session this way: "I made two concessions with the idea that Gerst and Blue would join in a statement to thn press what these concessions were. "Then after spending two hours working out the state- ment, Gerst went lo Blue- and notified us they would not agree to make the statement ES to what Ihe concessions were. "Then it all broke up.

(CP) Mu- hammad Ali, who has been vow- ing lo look eight years younger when he meels Canadian cham- pion George Chuvalo in a heavyweight fight 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 Iwo words: "Me, wheeccee."

SUES AH) KOIl AU "Tfie heavier gloves are (o Ihe advantage of said Un- gernian, Chuvalo's manager. "Lighter gloves are to the- bene- fit of the harder hitter and Chu- valo nils harder." Chuvalo has slated 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 lo be the first man to knock Ihe 34-year-old Canadian champ off his feet. When asked for n prediction as he wound up training Friday AU replied, "I don't want lo tell him about it, but it's going to be the eighth round." Ali is also looking ahead to a rematch with the only man who has ever bealen Fra- zicr. "Me and Frarier are going to sign in a few days. The negotia- tions arc almost wound up." NOT CONFIRMED But there was no confirmation of this from Los Angeles where Jack Kent Cooke, the man who put up most of (lie money for the first Ali-Frazier fight, has his headquarters.
