The Angels ran their winning streak to four in beating Cleve- and Indians 3-2 in the opener of j twi-night doubleheader Fri- day night but Hand, a right- hander, came back in the night- cap to stop California 5-1 with one-hitter. However, hi New York, the Yankees nailed the Twins twice _6-0 behind Fritz Peterson's three-hitter hi the opener and 2- on Mike Kekich's five-hitter in ha second. It was the Twins' 15th loss in their last 21 contests going back to Aug. 9, when they held a nine-game edge over the An- ;els. That margin is now down o three. 'They're making it harder on said Bill Eigney, stopper of the Twins, after the double loss. "They're trying too lard. Our pitching has been de- cent for the most part but we're rot getting enough runs. JUST GETS BREAKS Hand, now 6-9, is 4-0 over the Angels this year. "I don't know what it he said. "We get the runs and the breaks, it seems, when I pitch against them." His no-hit bid was spoiled in the first inning when Hoger Repoz ripped his 18th homer of the year.

Billy Taylor was at his broth- Ont, NHL board of governors' ruling on the suspension imposed on him and Boston Bruin team-mate Don Galfinger 22 years ago for gambling on NHL games. After his initial reaction, in which he said he was unaware the governors, meeting here, were even considering the sus- pensions, Taylor said: "I will not give any statement until bell.'

The former Bruin room-mates were expelled from the NHL after a police wiretap in Detroit in February, 1948, disclosed they had been placing bets on NHL games.

He toiled for Com Smythe's club until 1943 before entering the service. He returned to the NHL with Detroit Red Wings foi the 1946-47 campaign then was sent to Boston in 1947. He wai traded again, to New Y6rk Kangers on Feb. just 11 days before his expulsion.

Smytira _wrote Taylor, a Win nipeg native, in June of this year but did not receive a reply until Aug. 12. In his letter to the mam he fondly referred to as the Major, Taylor said he hac intended replying sooner bu had been in hospital two weeks 'with a wrenched back and then In a body cast for six weeks. Taylor said Smythe's offer to help him to be reinstated "made me feel like a new per- son." He said in his letter: "Many a time I prayed I would wake up and find this was just a horrible nightmare." The letter said: "If I am fsrtunate enough to be reinstated I will never be able to thank you enough aw will never let you down." NHL president Clarence Campbell, in aiinouncing lifting of the suspensions Friday, sak in a statement the league gover- nors saw "no useful purpose is being served by (he continuance of the penalty and stigma and humiliation which goes with it.

(CP) Eight black Syracuse University football players wsre suspendec for the season today when thej failed to show up for a regular team practice session. The eight included Al Newton, the team's leading ground- gainer last season, and six oth- ers who were told during the summer they could not play ball for Syracuse. They were joined today by Greg Allen, who led the team ir punt returns as a junior anc was second in rushing to New- ton. The original suspension was ordered by head football coach Ben Sehwartzwalder, but the seven were told by University Chancellor John Corbally Jr they would be reinstated if they made commitments to the team and the coaches by this morn ing. The controversy, which began last April, came to a head this month when the seven blacks were not invited to play in the 1970 season. Formal charges of discriml nation were brought by three o the seven against Schwartz walder1 and his staff. The com plaints were filed with the Syra cuse and Onondaga County Human Rights Commission. Corbally and the university denied the charges. The chan celor admitted, however, tha there had been misunderstand- ings between athletes and coaches. The 66 white members of the team walked off the field Thurs- day in a symbolic boycott count- ering one conducted last Apri by the blacks. Thomas Cut By Rams LONG BEACH, Calif.

'I don't believe it. I don't be- lieve it. I don't believe moaned the 26-year-old pitcher as he leaned back against a car in the darkened Tigef Stadium parking lot about midnight. "I was just clowning around, that was easy to he ex- plained. About 45 minutes earlier Campbell suspended McLain "for an indefinite period not to exceed 30 days for conduct un- becoming a professional base- all player." Campbell's action followed a telephone call from baseball writer Watson Spoelstra of the Detroit News who complained that before the Tigers' 6-2 loss to Oakland McLain had dumped a pail of water on him in the clubhouse. It was the second suspension for the cocky pitcher this year. After being under indefinite sus- pension during spring training, Baseball Commissioner BOOT'S Kulm formally suspended Mi- Lain April 1 for associating with gamblers in 1967. That suspen- sion was lifted July 1 and Denny returned that day to pitch for Detroit. F r i d a y 's incident occurred after McLain also dumped a pail of water on Jim Hawkins, baseball writer for the Dertoit Free Press. "It was a a big McLain told me. "You were going to get it too, and so was Rich Shook from DPI." Campbell called Denny Into his office after the game, with manager Mayo Smith in attend- ance. "I'll tell you what I did and Oils is the Denny said, running his hands through his thick blond hair. "I got down on my hands and knees in Camp- bell's office and begged to be traded because of the way he has handled team matters in the last three or four years." The two-time Cy Younj Award winner, who won 31 games in 1968 and 24 last sea- son, said he planned to tele- phone Marvin Miller, executive director of the Baseball Players Association, and see if Miller could get the suspension lifted. Since his return McLain has started 15 games. He has a 3-5 record and 4.65 earned-run-av- erage, giving up 19 home runs in the span. "Do you think Campbell would have suspended me if we were three games Hell no! But, what are we, about 15 games out With a month of the season remaining Detroit is in third place in the American League East, isVz games behind front- running Baltimore and four be- hind New York. Lancaster's Arm Bothering Him REGINA (CP) Saskatche- wan Roughrider quarterback Ron Lancaster says his throw- ing arm needs a complete rest, something it won't get until the season ends. The arm has been bothering lira since early in the season and five weeks ago was placed in a cast when the pain became "just as bad as a toothache." Lancaster, who says his arm is "fine now" but needs rest at every opportunity, will be at the helm when the Western Football Conference leaders tangle with Toronto Argonauts of the East- ern Conference Sunday after- noon. Saskatchewan, with a 5-1 rec- ord, wants to regain the com- fortable four-point edge it had after defeating the Calgary Stampeders 21-17 Wednesday. The gap was narrowed by two points Thursday when British Lions downed Ottawa Rough Riders 32-30 and took sole possession of second place in the WFC. The Argos are smarting from a 28-22 defeat by Winnipeg Blue Bombers Wednesday and a win in the west would put them into a first-place tie with Montreal Alouettes. Saskatchewan fullback George Reed has not recovered fully from a knee injury and showed it' during the game against Calgary. But head coach Eagle Keys says Reed and Lancaster will do their reg- ular jobs Sunday. "We don't have enough peo- ple. They play whether they are injured or said Keys. Lancaster said he had been depressed by the ailment. arm was so bad (five weeks ago) I couldn't throw the ball. The doctor told me the only cure was complete bmit a month of it. But I won't get that kind of rest until after the season."

Ellis, a right-hander with a 12-0 record, the most victories by a Pirate pitcher, returned from the west coast to have his right elbow examined by the club's physician.
