But they viewed their achievements differently. "It could have been a big thrill." McCovey said after be- coming the 15th player in major league history to hit 400 homers, "but what's happened the last week or so took the thrill away." He was referring to a state- ment about a week ago by matt ager Charlie Fox that "Gary Thomasson is my first base- men." ....A couple of injuries, however, forced Fox to put Thomasson in the outfield Friday night and McCovey, restored to the start- lineup, homered his way to a regular's job. Maricha', making bis first ap- pearance since July 3, when he pulled a leg muscle, raised his record to 7-5. "This did a lot for my con- said the Giants' long- time mound ace, who was de- moted to the bullpen several weeks ago and whose longest stint since June 12, was 4 1-3 in- nings.

More sport on page 8 He got the job done Nolan Ryan wanted to pitch well By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Nolan Ryan shrugged off tbe fact he had just tossed bis sec- ond no-hitter of the year Sunday and launched into reasons why be really needed it. The California right-bander had struck out 17 while pitching the Angels to a 6- 0 victory over Detroit Tigers and insisted he had to work on his pitching. "I needed this because I wasn't pitching Ryan said.- A Cap Day crowd of sat in at Tiger Stadium. Around the rest of the Ameri- can League Sunday, Minnesota Twins topped Cleveland Indians 7-6 in 10 innings, Baltimore Ori- oles edged Chicago White Sox 3- 2, New York Yankees blanked Kansas City Royals 24, Oak- land A's best Milwaukee Brew- ers 8-5 and Boston Red Sox de- feated Texas Rangers in a game hatted by rain after 5% innings.

Tonight the Royals move into Tiger Stadium white California returns borne for a date with Cleveland. Other games have Chicago at Boston and Balti- more in Oakland. was 'up' more than I have been because of the way we've been losing I wanted to throw a he said. Ryan, 26, became only tbe fifth man in major league base- ball history to pitch two no-hit- ters in one season. Two months ago to the day he no-hit the Royals. Mo one has ever had three no- hit games in a single season. It was the third no-hitter in the American League this year. The other was against Detroit, a 3-0 victory for Steve Busby of the Royals on April 27. "So I've thrown two good .Ryan said of his 1973 gems. "But look at my record. I'm 11-11.1 can't look back and say 1973 was my best year just because I pitched two no-hit- ters. "I haven't pitched as well as last year and I feel I have to improve myself. I feel for this club to stay in the pennant race I have to do the job I'm capable of doing in the second half of the season." A long delay, due to a five- run Angel eighth inning, caused Ryan's arm to stiffen some- what. He only struck, out one batter the last two innings. "I lost something off my fast ball and was a little tbe six-footrtwo, 195-pounder said. "I lost enough stuff in tbe last two innings that I decided not to be concerned about strike- outs. I was grateful to get cut of tbe game with a ne4iitter." After the first seven Ryan had seemed a cinch to break the league's nine-inning strikeout record of 18, set in 1938 by Bob Feller of Cleveland. "There'll be another Ryan said. The 17 strikeouts matched Ryan's career high. He had-17 against Minnesota last Sept. 30 which tied tbe league mark of a nine-inning night game. He has 220 so far this season in 189 innings. Last year he led the major leagues with 329 strikeouts in 284 innings. It was also the 12th time this season and the 43rd time in his career that he's struck out 10 or more batters in a game. "That was the best Fve ever seen anybody exclaimed Vada Pinson gave Ryan all the support be needed with a sacrifice fly in the third off loser Jim Perry, In the sixth inning of tbe Cleveland-Minnesota game, plate umpire Art Frantz "frisked" Gaylord Perry, look- ing for any illegal substance the Indians' pitcher might be using to doctor tbe baseball. Then, at Minnesota manager frank Quil- ici's behest, a towel was pro- duced and Ferry obligingly wiped his face. Umpire-in-chief Hank Soar at first base fumed that the con- stant demands for checks on Perry are making a farce out of tbe game. "We watched bun absolutely the Tigers' Dick MicAuliffe, who was joined by fellow left-handed bitter Duke Suns in striking out three times against Ryan. "I never saw a club that hits as well as Detroit miss so many pitches by so California manager Bobby Winkles added, spreading bis bands about six inches apart. The closest thing to a hit was a rising line drive by desig- nated hitter Gates Brown with one out in OK ninth. Shortstop Rudy Meoli moved back to tbe edge of the grass when Brown came to bat and made a leap- ing catch. The crowd, which seemed complacent until it began cheer- ing every strike in the bottom of the ninth, gave Ryan a stand- ing ovation. Majesties, Larks in city final Simpsons win zone title every second he was on the mound and ha .couldn't have been doing a thing. There was no way he was throwing any spitball today." In the 10th, after three walks loaded the bases, Danny Thompson lofted a fly ball to short left field, Mike Adams, at third base, took off after the catch and scored he winning Twins' run when Charlie Spikes' throw home was wide.. Mike Cuellar pitched himself out of a first-inning jam as Bal- timore cooled off Chicago.
