Royals rebound

By The Associated Press
KANSAS CITY-Freddie Patek, the
smallest regular in the major leagues,
walloped a two-run homer arid Kansas
City rode the pitching of Larry Gura
and two relievers to a 10-4 victory over
the New York Yankees yesterday in the
second game of the American League
championship series.
The victory tied the best-of-five
playoff 1-1, with game 3 scheduled for
Friday at Yankee Stadium.
Patek's homer into the left field
bleachers came during a three-run
seventh inning, when Kansas City
broke open the game. That uprising
was punctuated by a near-fight on the
field and confusion among players and
umpires about the number of outs in the
THE ROYALS, who had seemed so
flat Tuesday night when they lost the
opening game of the series 7-1, came
out flying in Game 2.
They picked up a run off Figueroa in
the first inning on singles by Brett and
Amos Otis and a sacrifice fly by Porter.
Then, in the second, they bunched five
singles and an error by Yankee shor-
tstop Bucky Dent for four runs.
Hurdle opened with a single to center
and Cowens followed with a hit to left.
Patek bounced to Dent, who tried for a
force at third. But the throw hit the
sliding Hurdle in the back and flew past
Nettles. Hurdle scored on the play, with
Cowens reaching third and Patek going
to second.

Figueroa. After reliever Dick Tidrow
retired Brett, Hal McRae drilled a hit-
and-run single through shortstop as
Dent vacated his position to cover
second base. Otis, who had three hits
for the game including an RBI single in
the eighth, struck out, but Porter beat
out a single to deep shortstop, scoring
White for a 5-0 Kansas City lead.
Gura protected that lead until the
seventh, limiting the Yankees to four
hits. But the lefthander, a 16-game win-
ner during the regular season, tired and

surrendered four more hits including
Dent's two-run single. Marty Pattin
came in and retired ThUrTnan Munson
and Lou Piniella with two men on base,
setting the stage for the bizarre bottom
of the seventh.
With Kansas City leading 5-2, the in-
ning started routinely enough as
Darrell Porter flied out to right field.
Pete LaCock followed with a double off
the right field wall, then Clint Hurdle
sent a long drive that backed Reggie
Jackson to the fence in right.
JACKSON TRIED for a leaping cat-
ch, but the ball fell for a triple, scoring
LaCock. Willie Wilson ran for Hurdle,

players in an effort to keep order.
Frank White then grounded out for
the third out of the inning, but nobody
on the, field seemed to realize it. The
nine Yankees in the field stayed at their
positions and George Brett, the next
Kansas city hitter, moved toward the
batter's box. The umpires also main-
tained their positions. The umpires
realized the problem before a pitch was
thrown to Brett.
The Yankees knocked out Pattin in
the eighth and picked up their last two
runs on four singles, including Chris
Chambliss' fourth of the game-tying a
playoff series record. Al Hrabosky, ace
of the Kansas City bullpen, surrendered
two of the hits, but ended the rally by

Dodgers to a 9-5 victory over the
Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday night
in the opening game of the -National
League championship series. Former
Eastern Michigan hurler Bob Welch
collected the win in relief as he pitched
one-hit baseball during his stint.
THE DODGERS, after falling behind
1-0 in the second, rallied for four runs in
the top of the third, three on a home run
by Steve Garvey, to take a 4-1 lead.
The Phillies scored in the second on a
leadoff triple by Greg Luzinski and a
sacrifice fly by Mike Schmidt, Bob
Boone and Ted Sizemore followed with
singles, but Hooton got out of the inning
by striking out Christenson.
Hooton struck out to start the Los
Angeles third, but Davey Lopes doubled
to the wall in left, took third when Bill
Russell's routine grounder went
through third baseman Schmidt for an
error, and scored on Smith's single to
center. Garvey then lined a 1-2 pitch
over the left field fence for a three-run
homer to send the Dodgers ahead 4-1.
One of the runs was unearned.

Parker rumored to NY
KANSAS CITY-Just as the New York Yankees finished denying reports
they had completed a trade to acquire centerfielder Juan Beniques from the
Texas Rangers, reports began circulating that a deal to send catcher Thur-
man Munson to Pittsburgh for Dave Parker could be in the works.
According to sources here at the American League playoffs, Beniquez
and relief pitcher Paul Mirabella have been obtained from the Rangers in
exchange for reserve outfielder Paul Blair, minor league third baseman Roy
Staiger and minor league catcher Jerry Narron plus as much as $600,000.
The trade, expected to be announced after the World Series, was repor-
tedly confirmed by Brad Corbett, owner of the Rangers. Al Rosen, president
of the Yanks, denied speaking about those players. Yanks owner George
Steinbrenner admitted talking about them but said no deal had been com-
pleted. He also noted that Commissioner Bowie Kuhn has put a $400,000
ceiling on exchanges of cash in trades.
Meanwhile, other reports have the Yanks trying to get Parker, the
Pirates' slugger, in exchange for Munson and other players including
Sparky Lyle.
Stingley moved
FOXBORO, Mass.-Paralyzed wide receiver Darryl Stingley was
moved yesterday from a California Hospital to a rehabilitation complex in
Chicago, the New England Patriots reported.
Stingley was injured during a National Football League exhibition game
Aug. 12 in Oakland against the Raiders and suffered a neck injury that left
him paralyzed from his shoulders down.
He has not regained movement since his injury and was on the critical
list several weeks ago with lung complications. But Fairbanaks said that
Stingley, whose condition later stabilized, claims to have gained weight in
recent days.
