Wood still at 19 wins Kaat at old form for awhile By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Wilbur Woorl said thai going for his 20th victory felt no dif- ferent then going for No. 19 or No. 13. But gelling that magic No. 20 was another mailer. _ While all eyes were oil wil- bur. Jim Kaal stole Ihe show. Wood, Ihe veteran knuckle- balling, reliever-lurned-slarter of Chicago While Sox, was stymied ui his bid to become lh( American League's Lhird 20-game winner by Kaal, who hurled a nifty four-hitter as Minnesola Twins defeated Chi- cago 3-1 Wednesday night. The big left-hander, at 11-12, having a sub-par season, held the White Sox hitless until Lhe fifth inning. "No game is easy lo sighed Wood. 19-11, denied in his bid to join Oakland's Vida Blue and Detroit's Mickey L'olich in the 20-game circle.

Kaat a 6-fooW southpaw, did not walk a batter and the White Sox reached him for their only run of the game in Ihe ninth in- ning. Wood, denied his major goal, raised his Lotal of innings pilched Lhis season to 203, the most by a White Sox pitcher since Thornton Lee hulled 300 innings m 19H.

McLain wants to be traded WASHINGTON (AP) Denny McLain, last year's bad boy of baseball and one of the sport's major disappointment's this year, says: "I want to be traded, 1 know I'm gone." A 31-game winner wilh De- troit Tigers two years ago, McLain now has a 9-18 mark with Washington. McLain said in an interview wilh the Detroit Free Press Wednesday: "I wouldn't want to have to come back to a place where I knew I would be pitching every fifth or sixth or even sometimes every seventh day. I just wouldn't want to go through all that again. I don't care where they trade as long as I can pitch every fourth day when I get there." McLain has asked Washington manager Ted Williams nil sea- son to start him every fourth day. McLain maintains that's the only way for him. Williams says he doesn't operate that way. CAN'T BREAK RHYTHM McLain said, "I never became a good pitcher until I started working regu- larly, every fourth day, in 1965." "That's Lhe only way I can keep my rhythm. Thai has a lot to do with Ihe way I'm pitching Lhis year. I'm nol as sharp as I should be because I haven'l been able lo settle in any pal- lern al all. I never know how much lime I'm going to have between starts. "I'm a stubborn player and he's a stubborn McLain said of himself and Wil- liams. "But's he's the man who decides Lhings. That's why I want to get oul of lhal's Lhe only reason. Other than thai, everything has been super, bul 1 can'l pilch this way."
