Chicago While Sox inning of their game at Fenway Park. Chicago scored catcher Ed Hermann questions plate umpire John Flaherty's eleven runs in the ninth inning, tying an American League safe call on Boston Red Sox Tony Conigliaro in the fifth record, to win the game 13-5. Calgary Seeking Share Of Top Spol ions Want To Beat Stamps VANCOUVER (CP) British Columbia Lions haven't beaten Calgary Stampeders since 1966. So how many people want U watch the Canadian Football League's Western Football Con- ference clubs meet again here tonight? More than predicted Denny Veitch, Lions' general manager, cheerfully supervising construction of extra rush seats. Lions lost 15-9 to Calgary last week and Stampeders are fresh from surprising Saskatchewan Koughriders 30-0 Monday. But Lions ara fresh too, from whacking Edmonton Eskimos' vaunted defence 35-7 three days after the loss to Calgary. The B.C. players held a pri- vate meeting before the Edmon- King In Good Condition MONTREAL (CP) Jim King, a Canadian Football League official from Montreal who was severely burned in an accident last week, was re- ported in good condition in hos- pital Wednesday night. A hospital spokesman said the 33-year-old high school teacher's condition was improving rap- idly. Earlier, he had been listed in serious condition. King suffered extensive burns to his hands, arms, legs and face in a fire that destroyed his boat at Tarrytown, N.Y. last Friday. He had refereed the CFL game in Toronto Thursday. After spending three days in a Tarrytown hospital, he was transferred Monday to Mont- real, where better plastic sur- gery facilities are available. ton game and conducted a little soul-searching. "We just got together and de- cided it was time for the B.C. Lions to stop losing and start recalls quarterback Paul Brothers. "I'm sure we can do the same thing against Calgary as we did against Ed- monton." Said linebacker Greg Findlay: "Calgary ran on us a bit but. I feel we'll be able to handle their running attack in tills next game." This assessment, however, Bobby Taylor May Not Play TORONTO (CP) Miss Tena, who reads the foam on a glass of beer instead ot teacup leaves, says Toronto Argonaut flanker Bobby Taylor will set a record in tonight's interlocking Canadian Football League game with Edmonton Eskimos. However, Argo coach Leo Cahill was not as optimistic. He says there is some doubt that Taylor will even get off the bench for the game, to be tele- vised by the CTV national net- work beginning at 5 p.m. MST. "We probably won't know about Taylor until before the said Cahill, who is look- ing for his second win in three starts. "They took some fluid from lis knee and we'll just have to see how it responds." At the Argonaut Playback 31ub meeting Wednesday, Miss Tena proclaimed the record but did not elaborate. Aside from prophesy, Cahill said another injured regular, tight-end Mel Profit, has re- covered from a Charley horse and will see action. Both Taylor and Profit watched from the s i d e 1 i n e s when the Argos dumped Hamil- YAMAHA CYCLE'S BACK-TO-SCHOOL SPECIAL YAMAHA TRA1LMASTER 100 Your sprockeNchangino days ore over!

Edmonton, who played well Tuesday but lost 14-10 to Mont- real Alouettes, are looking for some points on their eastern swing. Their record is 1-3. Edmonton's only casualty in the Montreal game was Mike Eben who was shaken up after taking a hard block in the final quarter. Earlier, the former Argo scored Edmonton's only touchdown on a spectacular 81- yard pass-and-run play. GIVES ESKIES CREDIT Cahill gave Edmonton credit for coming back from a 13-0 deficit against Montreal. The Ar'go coach also ignored suggestions that he should make a choice for No. 1 quarterback on his Wilkinson or Don Jonas. "I don't think we really have a No. 1 he said. "We have two No. 1 quarter- capable quarter- backs." Jonas and Wilkinson have al- ternated at the pivot this year, but Jonas is expected to be the starter tonight. He was the man that got Toronto rolling against Hamilton in the second quarter. Cahill was especially pleased with the work of Tony Moro, a 22-year-old rookio who started as a running back. When we saw his size and speed we decided to try him at end." From that position, Moro, a six-foot, 215-pound Toronto na- tive who played his college ball at Akron University, Ohio, has caught six passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns. was made before Stampeders unleashed a ground game Stam- peder fans had not seen since the Lovell Coleman days of the mid-GOs. One the key men was full- back Hugh M c K i n n i s, who played only 20 minutes of foot- ball at Arizona State last year. Calgary coach Jim Duncan said Wednesday McKinnis "hasn't made a mistake in a game." Lions ran A. D. Whitfield and Jim Evenson through Eskimos, but three days earlier Calgary handled Lions running attack. EXPECT PASSING GAME So Lions are expected to go to the air a little more tonight and coach Jackie Parker could acti- vate flanker Terrel Ray. Cornerback Jerry Bradley says Lions' defence has become more sophisticated. It inter- cepted four Edmonton passes; Bradley got two. But Calgary's defence has given up only 33 points, and only three touchdowns, in four games. And Stampeders turned three interceptions into points against Regina. Brothers directed Lions to the Iiighest score against Edmonton by any team in two years. On the other side, Duncan is still praising Jerry Keeling's play- calling against Saskatchewan. Neither coach planned much change for tonight. In WFC standings, Calgary is second with a 3-1 record behind Saskatchewan, 4-1. Lions are third at 2-2, followed by Edmon- ton, 1-3, and Winnipeg, By TIIE CANADIAN PRESS Montreal Expos set their own achievement record Wednesday by defeating Cincinnati Reds 8-6 for their 53rd win ot Ihe season. The Expos, who had a 52-110 won-lost record in their rookie year last season, picked on the powerful Reds, Western Divi- sion leaders, for their milestone. The victory left the .Exnos WV'a games behind the leading Pittsburgh Pirates in the East- ern Division. Montreal finished last season trailing pennant-win- ning New York Mets by 48 games. In other National League games, San Francisco Giants dumped Pittsburgh Pirates Houston Astros trounced New York 9-4, Chicago Cubs bombed San Diego Padres 12-2, Los An- geles Dodgers downed St. Louis Cardinals 4-2 and Atlanta Braves edged Philadelphia Phil- lies 3-2. bl PACES EXPOS Rusty Staub triggered a six- run Montreal fifth inning as the tSxpos dropped the Reds for the second straight game, giving Monti eal the distinction of be coming the first club this season to take a series at Cincinnati. The Expos jumped on loser Gary Nolan, 15-5, for six singles and Ron Brand capped the big fifth inning with a two-run tri pie. Tony Perez slugged a two- run homer for the Reds, his 3Sth. Bob Bailey had a solo sho for the Expos. Juan Marichal staggered to his fourth straight victory, stall ing Pittsburgh's chances o picking up ground in the torrid East Division race. He gave up 13 hits to the hard-hitting Pir ates. The Cubs drilled seven home runs, including two by Jin Hickman. to help Ferguson Jen kins gain his 15th victory. Jenkins added one while Billy Williams, Johnny Callison, Joe Pepitone and Glenn Beckert hac the others, matching the league's season high for a game set April 21 by Cincinnati against Atlanta. Hickman drove in five runs while Jenkins had 11 strikeouts to go over the 200 mark for the fourth successive season with 207. Clarence Gaston homerec for the Padres. The Astros rocked Tom Seaver and three relievers for 14 hits in their rout ot the Mets Pascual Released LOS ANGELES (API Los Angeles Dodgers asked waivers on veteran pitcher Camilo Pas- cual Wednesday for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release. A release would give the 36- year-old the opportunity of mak- ing a deal for himself. Pascual, who has been a major league baseball player since 1954, appeared in ]4 in- nings with the Dodgers and had an earned-run average of 2.5G. A pair of triples, a bases- loaded belt by Denis Menke and a two-run shot by Jesus Alou accounted for five of the Hous- ton runs. Seaver, 17-3, left in the sixth inning, his earliest exit in 28 stalls this year. Bud Harrelson, New York's shortstop, tied a major league record with his 54th consecutive errorless game, set last year by the Cubs' Don Kessinger. Willie Davis cracked a 2-2 lie with a two-run, bases-loaded single in the ninth inning for the Dodgers' triumph. The Cards had homers from Joe Hague and Lou Brock while Manny Mota had one for Los Angeles. Atlanta came from behind in the eighth inning on run-scor- ing-hils by Sonny Jackson and Felix Millan for their narrow victory over the Phils. Deron Johnson and Rick Wise homered for the Phils' runs off winner Pat Jarvis, 14-10. Yankees Cried Foul But It Didn't Work Canada Squeezes Past India FOREST HILLS, N.Y.

HEY KIDS Bring DAD and MOM In and Meet EARL INGARFIELD OF THE NHL OAKLAND SEALS Here In Person Saturday August 22nd to p.m. Earl be pleased to answer al! regarding Ihe NHL find give nulographsl FREE POP FOR THE KIDS! DUNLOP FORD 1718 3rd Avenue South Phone 328-5526 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS While New York Yankees cried foul, Minnesota Twins ace Jim Perry moved a step closer to an unusual major league rec- ord. Perry shut out the Yankees 3- 0 on four hits Wednesday night and posted his 18th vic- tory. With Gaylord Perry of San Francisco Giants at 17 victories, the Perrys could become the first brothes to earn 20 major league victories in the same season. The only other brothers to come this close to achieving that mark were the Deans ol the St. Louis Cardinals. Dizzy Dean won 30 games in 1934 but brother Paul fell just short of the mark with 19 victories. Third-place Oakland Athletics kept within six games of the front-running Twins by blister- ing Detroit Tigers 7-0; East Di- vision leader Baltimore Orioles turned back Milwaukee Brewers 3-2; Chicago White Sox ripped Boston Red Sox 13-5 and Kansas City Royals downed Washington Senators 2-1. PROTESTS DECISION Yankee manager Ralph Houk praised Perry's performance but protested a fourth-inning play at home that broke scoreless tie. With two out, Harmon Kille- brew raced home from second on a Rich Reese's two-out sin- gle. As umpire Larry Napp waved the safe sign, catcher 'Jake Gibbs and Houk argued heatedly that the throw from right had beaten the Killer. "When the catcher turned to make the tag, his glove was be- hind the said Napp. "The runner slid across the plate and into the glove. I call them like I see them." "I think that's said Houlc. "An easy-going guy like Jake doesn't get that mad about every play. You could see the slide marks where he didn't make it." The Twins followed witli an- other run and later added an in- surance tally. The triumph was the third straight for the Twins after a nine-game tailspin and jumped their American League West Di- vision lead to 5V4 games over California Angels, who lost 2-0 to Cleveland Indians. Diego Segui mystified Detroit on four hits as the Athletics halted a four-game slide that had dropped them from second to third in the West. Don Minehcr hit a two-run homer, his 21st, for the winners. Merv Reltenmund rifled a two-out, run-scoring single in the eighth to snap a 2-2 tie and Jve the Orioles their victory Dver the Brewers. It made an Two Playoff Spots Left The Commercial Men's Fast- >all League is corning to an end and the bottom five teams of the league are fighting for >layoff spots. M and K Generals and the Contractors have picked up iure playoff spots, but the Labor Club, Marquis, fuMode and Lethbridge are fighting for the remaining two. In last night's games the Nu- Mocle Homes whipped the Mar- quis Hotel 6-1 and the Con- .raclors trimmed the RCMP 5-4. Ron Wakelin picked up the tin for Nu-Mode while Sig Jobler suffered the loss. Miles Haughan paced the lorners hammering a home run and a double. Gary Canidine stroked out B triple and Ken Kevol aided vith two singles for the win- ners. Terry Douglas managed a double for the Marquis. Ron Zasadny gained the mound verdict over Frank Pop- on for the Contractors 5-J win. Richard rapped B double and a single for the Con- tractors while Wayne Nesbitt, Garth Lamb, and Gordon Yosh- inaka all chipped in with two singles. For (lie RCMP Tony Catonio pounded a home run and Bob Galatiuk managed a double. Tonight the Labor Club will face the Contractors at 7 p.m. and the RCMP will tangle with Ilia Nu-Moda Homes at 18-game winner of Mike Cuellar and boosted Baltimore's East lead to 11 ganres over New York. The White Sox, losing by three going into the ninth, shelled Red Sox hurlers for 11 runs on 10 nils. The cluster lied an American League record held by the New York Yankees for most runs in the ninth in- ning. Paul Schaal rapped a leadoff homer in the seventh, snapping a 1-1 tie, and powered Kansas City over Washington. Dick Drago, who hadn't won a game in nearly two months, pitched a four-hitter. Collins Signs With Caiiadieiis MONTREAL (CP) Mont- real Canadians of the National Hockey League Wednesday an- nounced the signing of right winger Bill Collins for the 1970- 71 season. Last season with Minnesota North Stars, Collins scored 29 goals, added nine assists and was used extensively as a pen- alty killer. He came to Montreal in a trade in which Canadiens sent Jude Drouin to Minnesota.
