The early season major league baseball players .strike has changed that formula in 1972 Ijecausc of the decision not to make up games cancelled during the walkout. Since not all leams will be playing the same number of games, the all-important col- umn on which n pennant could be determined this year is the games won. In the East Division, for cx- nmple, Detroit Tigers will play ]56 games this season, one more than both New York Yan- kees ar.d Boston Red Sox and two more than Baltimore Ori- oles. That's extra opportunities to win games and ultimately the pennant.

The Athletics have the games-played edge with 155 to 151. Oakland jumped Woodie Fry- man for three runs in the first inning with Bert Campaneris' double starling the rally. Angel Mangual and Joe lludi singled for one run and Mike Epstein .oubled two more home. Boog Powell was the hero for Was Riva Ridge given drugs? the Orioles, snapping a fifth in ning tie with a two-run homer to back Pat Dobson's three-hit pitching. Cleveland used the long ball with homers by Jack Kroha- mer, Buddy Bell, Alex Johnson and Craig Nettles to batter Minnesota. The 12-hit attack helped Milt Wilcox to his first victory since -June 10. SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (API The FBI is in- vestigating charges by the owner of Riva Uidge, consid- ered by many to be the best three-year-old race horse in the United Stales, that the colt was drugged when he finished fourth in the Monmouth Invitational Handicap on Aug. 5.
