Hargan Fires Ttvo-Hiller Orioles' Margin Three By THE ASSOCIATED PRESi Steve Hargan's fast ball was gone with the wind, Rich Mor ales' homer was gone in a flash and Baltimore Orioles were just gone. Hargan said the wind lielpec as he pitched a two-hitter to lead Cleveland Indians over New York Yankees 3-1; Morales delivered a thunderbolt homer as Chicago White S'ox nipped Minnesota Twins 8-7 and the Orioles bombed Boston Red Sox 13-2 Sunday to cut their magic number in the American League East to three games. "I had the wind behind Hargan said after allowing the Yankees a fourth-inning single by Roy White and a single by Danny Cater in the eighth. "I'd always heard that if you get a good horse, ride it, so I stayed with my fastball. "It was just one of those days that went my way and we got some runs. I threw maybe five or six curve balls all day." HOMER IS MARGIN Morales' first major league homer, a sixth-inning shot off Jim Kaat, was the winning mar- gin after the White Sox scored seven times in the fifth and held off a ninth-inning rally by the Twins.

Chgg Goes To Calgary Scotty Munro, head mentor for the Calgary Centennials o the Western Canada Hockey League, doesn't miss a trick. Centennials, who lost to Ed monton Oil Kings in a nine- game series for the western title in the league, are in the market for a new goaltender Ed Dyck, last year's netminder for Munro, has looked good in :he Vancouver Canucks train- ing camp and at present has ;eneral manager Bud Polie and coach Hal Laycoe thinking Dyck has been impressive and bo t h Canuck bosses are pleased. This leaves Munro ana bis Centennials in a bind. Munro is dealing on a goal- lender to fill Dyck's shoes. One of the prospects is S'am Clegg, who last year didn't get much of a chance to show his talents with the Lethbridge Sugar Kings. Munro is high on Clegg, a 17- year old from Fairview, Al- >erta. "He's a said Hunro. "He's got all the po- tential, all he needs is so coaching." In return for Clegg, since the Sugar Kings have a working agreement with the Centen- nials, the locals received the services of John Davidson, the rack-up man to Dyck last sea- ion.

TWELVE BAT IN FIFTH The White Sox, playing their last game under acting Mana ger Bill Adair, sent 12 men to the plate in their big fifth inning but needed Morales' long bal for the deciding margin. The West Division-pacing Twins were a run short with their two-run uprising in the ninth. Mike Cuellar, Baltimore's stickout southpaw, won his 23n game as the Orioles ran their winning string to six. Mark Belanger, Boog Powell Merv Rettenmund, Brook's Rob inson and Cuellar each knocked in two runs as Baltimore wrapped up the victory with three runs in the sixth inning and six in the seventh.

Alou's Error Was Costly As Cubs Trim Pirates By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Manager Danny Murtaugh and pitcher Steve Blass of Pitts- burgh Pirates were just a hand- shake Matty Alou let Chicago Cubs slip through his fingers. Alou, Pittsburgh's usually sure-handed centre fielder, muffed a fly ball with two out in the ninth inning Sunday and the Cubs went on to kayo Blass and score two quick runs for a 3-2 victory that tightened the three-team scramble for the Na- tional League's elusive East Di- vision title. The sudden turnabout carried the third-place Cubs "within one game of the first-place Pirates and within one-half game of the runner-up New York Mets, who lost 54 to St. Louis on Joe Torre's 13th inning homer. It also caught Murtaugh, the Pir- ates' manager, with his hand outstretched. "To tell you the he said, "I was stepping out of the dugout to shake Steve's hand." Blass led 2-1 and was one out away from a five-hit victory when Alou dropped pinch-hitler Willie Smith's short fly for a wo-base error. Don Kessinger 'aced a run-scoring single on ;he next pitch to tie the game, ook second on Glenn Beckert's Trst pitch single which fin- ished the shaken scored the winner on Billy Wil- iams' second-pitch single off re- vfir George Brunei. ALOU UPSET "I should have caught the said Alou, fighting back ears in the Pirates' quiet club- louse. "I knew the wind was blowing in, but I should have caught the ball." "I'm not about to criticize said Blass, who wound up with his 12th loss in 21 deci- sions. "He's saved me a thou- sand times. I still had a chance o get Matty off the hook if I lad gotten Kessinger, but I didn't do it." Elsewhere, San Diego Padres stunned Cincinnati's Reds, the Vest Division leaders, for the third straight time, 5-4, Los An- geles Dodgers downed San Francisco Giants 5-3 in 10 in- nings; Montreal Expos topped Philadelphia Phillies 4-2 and Houston Astros drubbed Atlanta Braves 10-6.

(AP) Sam Snead, surging back trongly after being five down it the 15th hole in the morning ound, defeated Max Faulkner if Britain 3 and 2 Sunday in the 36-hole world professional senior golf championship. GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) The golden era of Team Mc- Laren's domination of road rac- ing in North America came to an end Sunday. The driver who did it was 38- year-old Tony Dean, a Britisher whose 182-cubic inch Porsche Spyder 903 shouldn't even have been racing against the b'kes of the 600 horsepower McLaren' Chevrolets. Dean, a veteran of many Eu- ropean courses, happened to be the guy sitting in the right posi- tion at the right time as the more powerful contenders dropped out one by one in a wreck-marred Canadian-Ameri- can Challenge Cup race at the new Road Atlanta Circuit 40 miles northeast of Atlanta. The Britisher romped home to collect from the largest payday of his end Team Mc- other run before the Giants ral- lied for a pair in the bottom of the inning. The Expos scored twice in the eighth on Rusty Staub's single, a fielder's choice, a throwing error by pitcher Joe Hoerner, and Ron Brand's sacrifice fly to break a 2-2 tie and hand the Phillies their fifth straight set- back. Cesar Nedeno's two-run dou- ble and two Atlanta errors keyed a six-run first inning burst that carried the Astros past the Braves. McLaren's Lose., Domination Ends Beiivenuti Stops Baird BARI, Italy (AP) middleweight champion Nino Benvenuti of Italy stopped Doyle Baird of the United States in the 10th and last round of a non-title fight Satur- day night. B n v e n u 11 shook Baird throughout the fight with sting- ing rights and solid left hooks. Laren's string of Can-Am victo- ries at 19. A McLaren team car hadn't lost in the series since Oct. 13, 19C8, ard they had won tiic series title three times in a Dean's at Road Atlanta came after four separate early leaders either wrecked or ran off the new 2.52 mile course. Denis Hulme, who had posted three Can-Am victories as the No. 1 Can-Am driver, while leading on the ninth lap. Pete Revson, the New York sportsman driver, and George Eaton, a Canadian department store heir, suffered the same fate while they held the advan- tage later. Peter Gethin of Britain, Hulme's teammate who had won the most recent Can-Am at Elkhart Lake, Wis., seemed a sure winner until he was black- flagged for a pit road violation, then blew the engine in his car a lap later. With Hulme, Revson, Eaton and Gethin gone, and with the radical Chapparral 2J car of Vic Elford misfiring almost from the start, Dean rolled into the lead on the 67th lap and coasted home with almost a mile to spare over second-place finisher Dave Causey of Car- mel, Ind. L o t h a r Motschenbacher of Beverly Hills, Calif., was third, Oscar Koveleski of Scranton, Pa. fourth and Roger McCaig of Scarborough, Ont, fifth.
