Jerry Moses drove in two runs for Cleveland in the night- cap and the Brewers contrib- uted to their own downfall with four errors in the game.

Dave Nelson was a one-man gang for the Rangers, figuring in every run they scored against Oakland.

Gales Brown delivered a tie- breaking fifth-inning home run, then contributed a sacrifice fly to a four-run sixth that powered the Tigers past Boston in their nightcap.

Casey turned 82 on Sunday? Football season opens in Hamilton this evening MONTREAL (CP) The Canadian Football League now can get down lo Ihe serious business of playing its games, thanks lo a last-ditch settle- ment of a monetary dispute between the league and the players' association. With Ihe opening g a m e scheduled for tonight at Hamil- ton when the Tiger-Cats tain Saskatchewan Roughrid- ers, CFL commissioner Jake Gaudaur and Gerry Patterson, executive director of the CFL Players' Association, hammer- ed out a two year agreement early Saturday. It gives addi- tional financial benefits to the players and ensures he league no further confrontation with them before the end of the 1973 season. "We negotiated for 47 hours in six different Palter- son told a news conference Saturday. "I think feelings were so strong that if M r. Gaudaur had not negotiated di- rect we would not have obtain- ed a settlement." I Patterson said that 85 per cent of the players voted to ac- cept the league proposal that gives the athletes increased pre-season training camp bene- fits, pay for exhibition games, additional stipend for next year's Grey Cup participation. Only CFL veterans voted on the issue and Patterson said he did not receive complete ap- proval lo accept from the last of the players until 5 p.m. MDT Saturday. Negoitations between Patter- son and an owners' committee of three Hamilton's Ralph Sazio, Norm Kimball o[ Ed- monton, and Calgary's Roy Graves had reached an im- passe Thursday. But the own- ers gave Gaudaur authority Friday to shuck his role of mediator and enter direct ne- gotiations. Pettereon also disclosed Just how close the situation came to a strike a word he h a d avoided throughout his deal- ings.

In (he first contest, the Min- ers edged Calgary 1-0 while In the second they whipped tlieir visitors 5-0. In the first encounter, win- ning pitcher George Santoni scored on George Waselenak's double in the bottom of the third Inning to give the Miners the slim victory. Santoni picked up the mound win throwing a three-hitter while Bob MacKenzie took the loss giving up only two base hits. Meanwhile In the second game, Barry House hammered two home runs to lead the local club to an easy win over Calgary. The Miners tallied single runs In the third, fifth and sixth innings and had scored twice in Ihe fourth.

"Only one club was not unan- imous in this Patterson said. He declined to name the dissenting player group. With the average CFL salary for 1971 Patterson said the new agreement will aver- age out as an Improvement of a man in 1972 and 5700 for 1973.

STRUCTURES DIFFER Slightly different playoff money structures will be In ef- fect in the Western and East- ern Football Conferences this year, Patterson said, adding that they will become standard in 1973. In the WFC semi final this year the members of the win-, ning team will get each, while the losing team draws 500 per man and the team that draws the bye gets per man an increase of over last season, in the final, the figures are for the winner and for (he loser. Therefore, the team that draws the bye and then ad- vances beyond the final, will have per man before moving into the Grey Cup. In the EFC, the semi final members of the winning team draw 5450 each and the losers with the bye team also getting In the two-game, total point 1972 Eastern final, the players on both teams draw WOO each for the first game plus to Uie winner and S400 lo the loser In tha second.

Orval, making his second ap- pearance in Lethbridge at the Southern Alberta Auto Racers' stock car races this year, was rushed to hospital after his car failed to manoeuver a ramp he uses to get his car over a semi-trailer lengthwise. His car missed the end of the ramp and he landed wrong causing the accident. This morning he was said to be resting comfortably in hos- pital with three broken ribs and numerous other bruises.
