N.Y. WINS A.L. EAST CLASSIC, 5-4:
By The Associated Press
BOSTON-Bucky Dent rallied the
New York Yankees with a three-run
homer in the seventh inning and Reggie
Jackson applied the finishing touch
with a home run in the eighth as the 1977.
World Series champions hung on for a 5-
4 victory over the Boston Red Sox and
won the American League East title in
4 playoff yesterday.
The Yankees, East champions for the
third straight year, will begin the best-
of-five AL championship playoff series
at Kansas City against the Royals
Dent, despite pain from a foul ball off
his shin, ripped an off-speed pitch from
former teammate Mike Torrez into the
screen in left field, putting the Yankees
ahead for good 3-2.
Southpaw Ron Guidry earned his 25th
victory against only three losses, with tw
late-inning relief from Rich Gossage. S
Gossage, after yielding two runs in ye
the eighth, ended the uprising by get- he
ting Butch Hobson on a fly ball for the le
second out of the inning and striking out ze
dangerous George Scott. N
The Red Sox, who forced only the
second playoff in AL history by winning o
their last eight games of the regular sa
season, took a 2-0 lead, but Torrez, the
Yankees' World Series pitching hero a hi
year ago while playing out his option, w
was unable to hold the advantage.
Guidry, who hurled two consecutive
wo-hit shutouts against the Red Sox in
eptember, was nicked for a run as 39-
ear-old Carl Yastrzemski drilled a
fmer into the right field stands
ading off the second. It was Yastr-
emski's 17th homer of the season and
o. 383 of his illustrious career.
The Red Sox added a run in the sixth
n a double by Rick Burleson, a
acrifice and a single by Jim Rice.
The Yankees, checked on just two
its by Torrez for six innings, rallied
ith one out in the seventh.
Singles by Chris Chambliss and Roy
White started the rally. Pinch hitter
Jim Spencer flied to left for the second
out, but Dent followed with a curving
shot into the friendly screen for a
homer, his fifth of the year.
.The Yankees got another run in the
inning,as Mickey Rivers walked, stole
second and scored on Thurman Mun-
son's double'to left center. Munson, who
had struck out his first three times at
bat against Torrez, connected against
Reliever Bob Stanley.
The Yankees got the decisive run in
the eighth when Jackson led off against
Stanley with a towering drive into the
center field bleachers for his 27th
homer of the season.
In the bottom of the eighth, Jerry
Remy doubled and Yastrzemski singled
him home for Boston's third run.
Carlton Fisk then singled and Fred
Lynn delivered an RBI single before
Gossage retired Hobson and Scott.
Andy Hassler replaced Stanley afte
Jackson's homer and had to give wayt
Dick Drago in the ninth. The Red So
were unable to catch up agains
Gossage, who recorded his 27th sav
despite a two-run Boston eighth.
The Red Sox, who led New York by 14
games on July 19, before the Yankees
began their comeback, made a game
but vain bid to pull out a victory in the
Remy led off the inning with a groundi
double down the right field line and, af
ski's line single to center. Yastrzemski
came around on singles by Fisk and
Lynn before Hobson flied to right and
Scott struck out toend the uprising.

The experts were baffled. Everyone
thought that the 5-4, 133 pounder from
Howell was too small for college foot-
ball, but there was Mark Larzelere at
the top of the Griddes with a respec-
table 18-2 record.
Perplex the experts yourself. Get
