The Detroit Tigers closed out the first half of the 1968 American League schedule strong, winning nine of their last ten games and stretching their lead to six and a half games over the second-place Cleveland Indians.

If a poll were to be taken here at White Sox Park to determine the most valuable White Sox of 1967, the balloting would probably be split among any number of players.

The Chicago White Sox defeated the Baltimore Orioles 6-4 in thirteen innings on a sweltering 100 degree day before 14,347 at Memorial Stadium, but could be forced to pay an exorbitant price for the victory.

Giants manager Herman Franks made a small request to rival manager Walter Alston, captain of the National League squad. Franks asked Alston not to use Giant pitchers Juan Marichal and Gaylord Perry, and was reportedly miffed as Marichal pitched three innings and Perry two. But National League fans certainly appreciated the next Giant that Alston

* The White Sox finished flat, dropping their final two games to Kansas City 5-0 and 11-3 at Comiskey Park. The finale was a dreadful affair that drew boos from the sparse crowd of 4,611 as the home team never appeared in the game. Bert Campaneris opened with a single. As Dick Green stepped up
