Elsewhere, Oakland Athletics edged Kansas City Royals 2-1 and Minnesota T\vins squeezed by Milwaukee Brewers 4-3. The Orioles spotted the Red Sox six riuis in tiie first inning but came back in the seventh to tie it 6-6 before Boston regained the lead 8-6 in the eigth. Carl Yastrzemski spai-ked the Boston explosion in the first with a two-run homer off Tom Phoebus and the other four runs were unearned. A bases-loaded walk in the second irniing got Baltimore's first run in and the Orioles came back with five more in the se\'enth an a three-nm homer by Curt Motion, Dave Joluison's triple and a two-nm homer by Chico Salmon. SOX FIGHT BACK Boston battled back, taking a modest two-run bulge on Tony Conigliaro's sevienth - inning homer and an eighth-inning run built ai'ound singles by Mike Andrews and Billy Conigliaro and an infield out. But in the ninth, Boog Powell doubled with one out and scored on Merv Rettemnund's single. Paul Blaii- doubled and Brooks Robinson walked, loading the bases for Frank Robinson, who doubled home the deciding runs. It was the fifth straight victory for the Orioles, who now lead the American League East by 3Vz games. Minnesota, front-runner in the West, opened its lead to 41,2 games by knocking off Milwaukee. Harmon Killebrew's 18th home run, a three-run shot that broke a 1-1 tie in the fifth, was the big blow for tlie Twins. Jim Kaat throttled the Brewers on tlu-ee hiu until the ninth when Tommy H a r p e r's two-run homer pulled Milwaukee within one run. But Ron Perranoskl came out of the bullpen to retire the last three batters and save the victory. Rod Oarew, Minnesota's second baseman and the American League's leading batter, was forced to leave the game in the fourtii inning because of a leg injury after he was bowled over on a double play by Milwaukee's Mike Hegan. The injury was not believed to be serious. Frank Fernandez ripped a pinch-hit homer leading off the bottom of the ninth inning to give Oakland its victory over Kansas City. The homer was the ninth ttus season for Fernandez, who was batting for winner Bobby Locker, 1-1. The Athletics' other run came on a fifth-inning homer by Sal Bando, liis I4lh of the season and third in the last two days. City tied the scor� against starter Diego Segui with an unearned run in the seventh on Paul Schaal's double and an error by John Donaldson. Laver, Ashe Post Easy ^^TMBLEDON, England (AP) -Rod Laver of Australia and Arthur Ashe of Richmond, Va., led a procession of seeded players through the first round of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships Monday as both the Australia and U.S. contmgents came through without incident. Laver, who is seeking his third title in succession and his fifth altogether, took just one hour for a 6-2, 6-0, 6-2 romp over George "Butch" Seewagen of Bayside, N.Y. Ashe opened his bid by downing Graham Stilwell of Britain 6-3, 6-2, 6-1. Stan Smith of Los Angeles, the U.S. No. 1 and the seventh seed here, also advanced, but had difficulty before subduing Jaime FiUol of Chile 7-5, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. Clark Graebner, the nintii seed from New York, also needed four sets before defeating Harald Elsenbroich of West Germany 6-3, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1, but Dennis Ralston of Bakersfield, Calif., advanced without playing when Nicola Pietrangeli of Italy scratched. One, Two, Three But Not Out, In They say that one, two, three strikes' and you're out but what do you do when the one, two, three is in reference to golf? A trio of golfers invaded Magrath Golf Club Monday and recorded a unique triple. Playing the par-tln-ee, fourth hole, Jim Freel of Lethbridge canned his too shot for a hole-intone. Fraser Baalim, also of Lethbridge bu-died the hole while Jim Matkin of Milk River picked up a par. And there you have your one, two and three. The Australians, with five se^, had even less trouble. Laver, inevitably the top seed, showed his way against Seewagen while John Newcombe, second seed and last yeai-'s rlm-ner-up, was the victor in another Australia - U.S. battle when he defeated Roy Earth, of San Diego, Calif., 6-2, 6-3, 6-4. Roy Emerson, the 10th seed, and like Laver and Newcombe a former winner here, had an equally-easy passage over Ana-toly Volkov of Russia 6-4, 6-2, 6-0 while Ken RosewaU, the vet* ANDY CAPP IF I WERE T' DIE TO/V\0RR0W WOUL&NER mRR"V AGAUN?, NOT TOMORROW, KIO -iVE GOT A SNOOKER MATCH eran Aussie who was twice a finalist in the 1950s and 60s is seeded fifth this year, beat fellow countryman Charles Dibley 6-3, 7-5, 64.
