The Indians trimmed Min- nesota Tuins 3-2 while division- leading Detroit Tigers were los- ing 6-3 to Oakland Athletics, Bal- timore Orioles 20 to Cal- ifornia Angels and New York Yankees dropped a 5-4 score to Chicago White Sox. Fourth-place Boston Red Sox also made up ground by out- slugging Kansas City Royals 10- 7. In another encounter, Texas Rangers edged Milwaukee Brewers 2-1. The victory moved the fifth- place Indians to within games of Detroit. Boston is within games, New York is a game and a half out and the Orioles remained just a half game from top. Detroit hegan the month of August atop the AL East and the Tigers are still there de- spite a woeful 8-1.5 record over the last three weeks. The slump has, of course, cost the leaders.

But it was Lancaster, the scrambling quarterback, who set up the play following a 10- y a rd field go at by Ca! g ary 's Larry Robinson which had given the Stampcders a 10-9 lead wilh less than two minutes remaining. Lancaster, who used the screen pass with success throughout the evening, starlet! the winning march from the Koughios' 35. Five plays later, including a 31-yard screen to Bobby Thompson, Ihe Roughies were deep in Calgary territory. Abendschan had little trouble getting his 113th career field goal from directly in front of the posts.
