Phils won, 7-5. Lopes comes close Robinson hits milestone By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Chalk up a major milestone for Frank Robinson on the same night that Marcelino Lopez just missed a more modest one. Robinson hit a three-run homer, the hit of his car- eer, helping Baltimore Orioles to a 7-3 American League vic- tory over Washington Senators Thursday night. Meanwhile, Lopez came within three outs of his first complete game in five years. But the veteran left-hander needed ninth-inning relief help from Ken Sanders to nail down Milwaukee Brewers' 2-1 victory over Kansas City Royals. Elsewhere Wednesday, De- troit Tigers trimmed New York Yankees 3-1, Boston Red Sox downed Cleveland Indians 5-3, California Angels took Minne- sota Twins 7-4 and Oakland Ath- letics defeated -Chicago White Sox 4-2. Ro.binson, the only man in major league history to be named Most Valuable Player in each league, made his milestone hit a memorable one. It was a three-run home 488th homer of his career which began with Cincinnati Reds 16 years ago. Merv Rettenmund also smacked a three-run homer for Baltimore and left-hander Mike Cuellar rode the heavy hitting to his llth consecutive and 13th triumph this season. Cuellar allowed just six hits and showed no ill effects of the strained neck he suffered when he was involved in an automo- bile accident Monday night. Lopez, who has not had a complete game since 1966 when he was pitching for California, nursed a 2-1 Milwaukee lead into the ninth inning against Kansas City. But he was lifted when he walked Fred Patek opening the ninth. In the National League, the talent rich Pittsburgh Pirates have found another jewel in rookie Bruce Kison, a 21-year- old with a singing fastball who pitched a 7-1 win over Cincin- nati Reds Thursday night. "I'm impressed with him so admits Pittsburgh man- ager Danny Murtaugh, who is already stacked with good pitch- ers on his team, including all- Stampeders cut Butler, Beard CALGARY (CP) Thermus Butler, an import halfback who played with Edmonton Eskimos before coming to Calgary Stampeders, was cut Thursday from the Calgary training camp. The Stampeders also releas- ed import defensive half Gene Beard. EL RAMO SERVICE LOOK" in "CAR CARE" star Dock Ellis. "He has a live fast ball and he bandies him- self well." Kison, called up last week from the minors to fill in while Bob Moose is on a two-week army reserve hitch, is getting a closer look from Murtaugh after his first major league victory. While Pittsburgh boosted its East Division lead to seven games over the idle New York Mets, San Francisco Giants turned back Houston Astros 4-2, Philadelphia Phillies stopped Montreal Expos 7-5 and Chicago Cubs tripped Los Angeles Dodg- ers 4-2 in other action. Kison earned a shot at the big time with a 10-1 record at Charleston of the International League. RELIEVED IN EIGHTH The 6-foot4, 180-pounder held the Reds to three hits and no runs through seven innings be- fore issuing a two-out, bases loaded walk in the eighth. In came Dave Giusti, who silenced Cincinnati for his 18th save. Bob Robertson's two-run homer highlighted a four-run first inning that gave Kison a 4- 0 cushion. Bobby Bonds' two-run double keyed a three-run third that carried San Francisco past Houston behind John Cumber- land's six-hit pitching. Bonds had earlier scored to pull the Giants into a 1-1 tie in the sec- ond. The triumph ended a four- game losing streak for the Giants. Tune-up with three games against Cubs on weekend Miners host Alberta junior finals Managers complete all-star club rosters SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Pittsburgh P i r a t e s' Roberto Clemente drew his llth all-star game assignment today as Cin- cinnati Reds' manager Sparky Anderson completed the Na- tional League squad. Clemente, four-time league batting champion, will take a .310 all-star batting average into next Tuesday night's game against the American League's stars at Detroit. He finished fifth among Na- tional League outfielders in vot- ing by baseball fans that deter- mined the starting line-ups. Anderson named 12 players to complete the 28-man squad. Catcher Manny Sanguillen ot Pittsburgh, first baseman Nate Colbert of San Diego Padres and outfielders Bobby Bonds of San Francisco Giants and Willie Davis of Los Angeles Dodgers were put on the all-star team for the first time. RUSTY'S ON The others named were In- fielders Don Kessinger and Ron Santo of Chicago Cubs, Lee May of Cincinnati and Felix Millan of Atlanta Braves, and outfield- ers Lou Brock of St. Louis Car- dinals, Pete Rose of Cincinnati and Rusty Staub of Montreal Expos. Rose, who scored the winning run in the 12th inning of last year's all-star game, was named to the squad for the sixth time. Santo has been se- lected seven times. Anderson also announced that managers Walter Alston of Los Angeles, Danny Murtaugh of Pittsburgh and Preston Gomez of San Diego will serve as all- star coaches. The team trainer will be Leo Hughes of San Fran- cisco Giants. Meanwhile Al Kaline of Detroit Tigers was named to the American League all-star team for the 17th time and Harmon Killebrew of Minnesota Twins for the 13th Thursday as man- ager Earl Weaver completed his squad for Tuesday's game with the National' League. Catcher Bill Freehan of the Tigers was chosen for the eighth time, while Washington slugger Frank Howard was packed for a fourth appearance as the Senators' only represent- ative. Weaver provided only a cou- ple of minor surprises as he no- tified league headquarters of his 11 reserve choices to round out the 28-player squad.

Others added were catcher Thurman Munson of New York Yankees; infielders Leo Carde- nas of the Twins; Cookie Rojas of Kansas City Royals, and Bill Melton of Chicago White Sox, and outfielders Bobby Murcer of the Yankees, Amos Otis of Kan- sas City and Don Buford of Bal- timore Orioles. Freehan and Munson, the 1970 Rookie of the Year, finished in order behind starter Ray Foose of Cleveland in the poll for catcher. Cardenas was runner- up to shortstop Luis Aparicdo of Boston Red Sox, and KUlebrew finished1 second behind third- baseman Brooks Robinson of the Orioles. Weaver bypassed his own sec- ond baseman, Dave Johnson, to name Rojas, a member of the National League all-star team with Philadelphia in 1965. Rojas, among the league's top hitters this season, finished third on the balloting as a write-in candidate behind Min- nesota's Rod Carew and John- son. Melton was overlooked in the voting, but was chosen as the White Sox' lone representative. He has 18 homers and 50 runs batted in. In. the outfield, Murcer, Otis, Kaline and Howard finished in order behind the top three vote- Yastrzemski of Boston, Tony Oliva of Minnesota and Frank Robinson of Balti- more. Buford, a switch hitter, was chosen over Oakland Athletics' Reggie Jackson and others. Norm Cash of the Tigers, named to replace injured Powell of Baltimore, was left as the only regular first-baseman. YastrzemsM, Howard, Kaline and Killebrew have plenty of experience there. Oakland, runaway leaders in the American League West, will be represented by only one player, southpaw pitching sen- sation Vida Blue.

Dick Williams, manager of Oakland Athletics, let out a scream Thursday when he was informed that rookie southpaw sensation Vida Blue was only member of his team to make the American Leagut All-Star squad. "It's the worst selecting I've ever screamed William! after his Athletics had suly dued Chicago White Sox 4-2. "It's atrocious to take only one player from a team which is leading the league by 10 games."
