BOSTON (AP) - Lou Piniella's bloop
double keyed a two-out, seven-run
fourth inning yesterday and Ron
Guidry pitched a two-hitter as the New
York Yankees pulled within a game of
first place in the American League's
East Division with a 7-0 triumph over-
the Boston Red Sox.
Guidry, 21-2, walked four, struck out
five and pitched his seventh shutout and
13th complete game of the year in
helping the Yankees to their 15th
victory in 17 starts. The loss, Boston's
,third straight to New York, was the Red
Sox's eighth in 10 games.
THE YANKEES exploded against
Dennis Eckersley, 16-7, sending 12
batters to the plate before reliever Tom
Burgmeier retired the side.
The seven-run outburst was all New

York needed for its 20th victory in the
last 25 games. The Yankees, who
trailed the Red Sox by 14 games on July
19, are 38-14 in a stretch bid to retain the
East Division title, the pennant, and the
World Series championship.
Eckersley, who had won nine games
without a defeat at Fenway Park this
season, started the fourth by
surrendering a pop single to Thurman
Munson. Then Carl Yastrzemski made
a spectacular catch in the left field
corner to rob Reggie Jackson of a hit
and Munson was doubled off first.
CHRIS CHAMBLISS doubled and
Craig Nettles was walked intentionally.
Piniella then popped a fly to shallow
right center. Five Boston players
converged as the wind-blown ball fell
safely, Chambliss scoring and Nettles

taking third.
After another intentional walk,
Bucky Dent singled home two runs and
Mickey Rivers singled for two more.
That was followed by a walk, a wild
pitch, Munson's RBI single and a
passed ball that brought home
Randolph.
GUIDRY, MEANWHILE, became
the first left-hander to shut out Boston
at Fenway since Ken Holtzman did it
for the Oakland A's on August 5,1974.
Guidry worked out of trouble in each
of the first three innings before settling
down.
THE RED SOX got their only hits in
the first inning. Rick Burleson led off
with a single to center and, after a
sacrifice, Jim Rice grounded a single to
deep short. Guidry then retired

Yastrzemski on an infield grounder and
Carlton Fisk on a called third strike.
The big fourth inning, and New
York's 11 hits increased the Yanks'
totals for the series to 35 runs and 49
hits in three games. They won 15-3 in
the series opener, collecting 21 hits, and
won 13-2 Friday night with a 17-hit
attack.
The Red Sox continued to have
trouble in the field, making two more
errors to raise their series total to 1.
with one game remaining in the set.
Boston made two in the opener
Thursday night and seven Friday night.
The loss, coupled with Milwaukee's 3-
0 yictory over Minnesota, also inched
the Brewers closer to first place.
Milwaukee, which has won four of its
last five - three by shutout - is 4
games back.

ROZEMA, MANKOWSKI STAR:
Fumbling Tigers trip past Tribe

M

By PAUL CAMPBELL
Special to The Daily
DETROIT - The Cleveland Indians
once again proved the perfect tonic for
Dave Rozema's pitching problems
yesterday as he held them to five hits in
a 5-2 Tiger victory.
It was "the Rose's" third career
victory without a loss against the.
Clevelanders, and the second time this
year that he came out of a slide to pitch
a complete game against the Indians.
Back in June, Rozema was struggling
after being on the disabled list with
shoulder problems, but seemed quite
healthy as he three-hit the Tribe.
But the dog days of August and
September have not been kind to the
man who was his league's best rookie
pitcher in 1977. Despite three complete

games (some say Rozema doesn't
throw hard enough to get tired) and a.
respectable 3.31 ERA, he has lost four,
straight starts.
Tht Tigers haven't been giving
Rozema the best defensive support, and
their bumbling afield was never more
obvious than yesterday.
Shortstop Alan Trammell got away
with errors in each of the first two
innings, but three of his teammates
more than made up for that on one
comical play in the Cleveland third.
With Bernie Carbo on first, catcher
Gary Alexander bounced a ball up the
middle that Lou Whitaker got a late
start on and couldn't reach. Ron
LeFlore reached it all right, but
dropped it twice before finally getting a
throw into the infield.

Grubb had scored by V at time, but
Alexander seemed a dead duck halfway
before second and third. That was
before Jason Thompson threw the ball
on two hops into the stands, givingthe
powerful Alexander his easiest run
home all year and putting Cleveland up
2-0.
