(or 100 years, since the game was said Dave Bris- tol Monday night, after his Mil- waukee Brewers committed four and botched a fly ball to help the Minnesota Twins to a 6-5 American League baseball victory. Bristol sighed: "You can't do anything about themi Oars just came at an inopportune time." Trailing 5-3 in the seventh in- ning, the Twins made the most of three Milwaukee errors, a walk Reese's infield only hit of the inning three runs. Elsewhere in the American League, Baltimore Orioles whipped Cleveland Indians 5-2, Detroit Tigers edged the New York Yankees 4-3, Boston Red Sox downed Sena- tors 5-3 and Kansas City Royals trounced the Chicago White Sox 7-1. California Angels Oak- land Athletics were not sched- uled. Cincinnati Reds nipped San Diego Padres 2-1 in the only Na- tional League action. In the first inning of the Min- nesota-Milwaukee game, Twins left fielder Jim Holt misjudged a fly bail and it fell for a dou- ble. Right fielder Tony Oliva dou- bled Huss Snyder's run-flcorini single in the third for one o Minnesota's two miscues anect more because of the high- y-populated surrounding area, the board was told.

Miss Brill's whining jump was ncorrectly listed is Jobre said. Balas of Rumania set the world mark at 6-3 in 1961. BLACK-EYED BLUES-Robbie Elliott, S, of Brontford, Ont., found that it's no fun being struck out in a game you're not even playing in. Robbie was playing near a. baseball diamond when someone hit a foul ball went home with one of the prettiest shiners to ever grace a face. EUebrew's fly ball got caught hi the breeze and fell behind Hovley and centre fielder Sny- der for a triple. In seventh, shortstop Ted Kubiak booted George Hitter- waM's grounder. With one out, Cesar Tovar's grounder went through third baseman Tommy Harper and there were runners at first and third. Pitcher Skip Lockwood retired Rod Carew on a short fly for the second out, but made the mis- take of letting Oliva hit the ball on the ground. Kubiak booted this one, too, as the tying run scored. Killebrew walked, load- ing the bases, and Tbvar and Oliva both raced home as Reese ouflegged an infield hit i Locfcwood couldn't handle first baseman Mike Hegan's throw. TWINS ERR TOO In the ninth, with two down, Harper doubled for the Brew- ers, Snyder singled him tome and third baseman Frank Quil- ici, just put in for defense, kicked Roberto Pena's groun- der. But Oliva made, a fine catch of Danny Walton's high wind-blown pop fly to end the contest. 'Oliva made a big league said Bristol. "That's the reason he's a great player. He can hit and do things like that." The Orioles scored three runs in each of the first two innings and rolled past the Indians on Dave McNaHy's six-hitter. Paul Blair started Baltimore off with a two-run double in the first. McNaily, 8-2, tost his shutout in the ninth when Roy Foster lat a two-run homer.

Monday he estimated the jlayers would benefit to the :une of over the three fears. Miller, recommending accept ance of the pact, said all 24 player representatives had been jolled and a final yote is due mthin a week. It is expecta that the owners will ratify the jackage at the same time. The players had rejected an earlier owners' proposal be- cause of three major points o disagreement: the length of the season, playoff compensation and termination pay. The club owners won out on 'he issue of the 162-game regu- lar season. However, on the playoff kitty owners offered to increase the (layers' share from 50 per cenl o 60 per cent, with all expenses coming out of the owners' share. Under the new termination agreement, a player will get 30 days' salary if cut during spring Surgery For Howe ANN ARBOR, Mich.
