DODGERS DEDICATE GAME TO GILLIAM:
New York Yankee third baseman'
Graig Nettles bobbles a ball off the
bat of Kansas City Royal Frank
White in the second inning of last
night's AL playoff game. Nettles
was more of a hero than a goat last
night, however, as the Yankees clin-
ched a berth in their third straight
World Series. He recovered on this
play in time to throw out White at
first. Then, in the bottom of the
second, Nettles homered off Royal
starter Dennis Leonard to stake New
York to a 1-0 lead. The best of seven
World Series between the Yankees
and the Los Angeles Dodgers begins
next Tuesday night in L.A.

LOS ANGELES-Bill Russell, a
clutch hitter all season, singled home
the pennant-winning run with two out in
the last half of the 10th inning yester-
day, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a
4-3 victory over the Philadelphia
Phillies and the National League flag.
"What Philadelphia reliever Tug
McGraw started me out with was a
slider because they know I'm, a good
first-ball, fastball hitter," said Russell.
"Then he tried the slider again, he
jammed me and it was a good pitch, but
I was able to hit it."
HE HIT IT FOR the single to give the
Dodgers the best-of -5 NL championship
series three games to one. It is the
second year in a row the Dodgers have
won the pennant; they beat the Phillies
by the same margin in last year's
The only reason Russell came to bat
was a misplay by usually reliable cen-
ter fielder Garry Maddox, who dropped
a sinking line drive by Dusty Baker
with two out and Ron Cey on first base.
That error kept the Dodgers alive and
brought up Russell, who hit .286 during
the regular season.
THE DODGERS dedicated the game
to their veteran coach, Jim Gilliam,
who lies in a coma at an Inglewood,
Calif., hospital after suffering a
cerebral hemorrage on Sept. 15.
"We did it for The Devil," Manager
Tom Lasorda said, using Gilliam's
Cey, who scored the winning run,
commented: "Russell has been a very
clutch hitter all year for us and we
wouldn't want any different guy up
RUSSELL SAID he didn't care
whether the Dodgers play the New
York Yankees or Kansas City Royals in
the World Series. "We're here now, and
that's the important thing," he said.
"We're tired of being second-best."
The shortstop referred to World
Series losses to Oakland in 1974 and the
Yankees last year.
And of Russell's winning hit, which
the center fielder tried to scoop and
throw to the plate, Maddox said, "It
was a do-or-die play. You come in as
hard as you can. You've got to scoop it
up and hope you can make a throw."
But Maddox didn't scoop and there
was no throw.

LOS ANGELES - Shortstop Bill
Russell's single with two outs in the 10th
inning scored Ron Cey and brought the
os Angeles Dodgers the National
League pennant yesterday with a 4-3
triumph over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Te eshortstop's hit off southpaw
reliever Tug McGraw gave the defen-
ding NL champion Dodgers the pennant
[second year in' a row and was
Russell's third hit of the game.
Tied 3-3 after nine innings, Dodgers
eliever Terry Forster retired the
hillies on one hit - a single by Larry
owa in the top of the loth. Then
McGraw got Reggie Smith and Steve
Garvey in the bottom of the frame
before Cey walked, and Dusty Baker
was safe when the goat of the game,
center fielder Garry Maddox, dropped
his short fly in center field.
With the runners on first and second,
Russell slapped his clean single over
second base. The ball went through
Maddox, but even if he had fielded it,
Cey would have scored.
The crowd went wild, thronging onto
the field. The World Series starts at
Dodger Stadium Tuesday evening
against the American League cham-
McGraw, the fourth Philadelphia pit-
cher in a game punctuated by home
runs in the early innings, took the loss.
The left-handed Foster, the third
Dodgers hurler, gained the victory.
Forster struck out Mike Schmidt to
open the 1th inning before Bowa
singled to right. Maddox was called out
on strikes, then Greg Luzinski, who hit
a home run earlier, grounded to
Russell, who tagged second to force
Bowa for the final out of the inning.
Smith led off for the Dodgers and
flied to Maddox before third baseman
Schmidt threw out Garvey. Cey walked,
and it appeared the inning was over as
Maddox came in after Baker's fly.
But the ball glanced off his glove,
keeping the Dodgers alive for the blow
by Russell. He had been a tough out all
season for the Eastern champions.
Cey's 390-foot homer to left tied the
score 2-2 in the fourth.
Garvey, on a count of one strike and
one ball, belted his fourth homer of this
championship series over the left field
fence. It was the sixth time he had
homered in championship series com-
petition, breaking the record of five
held jointly by Sal Bando and Reggie
Jackson of the American League.
It also was the 12th run scored by
Garvey in NL championship com-
petition, bettering the mark of 11 by
Cincinnati's Pete Rose.
NEW YORK - Veteran Roy
White, often overshadowed on a club of
high-salaried stars, ripped a tie-
breaking home run in the sixth inning,
while Ron Guidry and Rich Gossage
pitched the New York Yankees a 2-1
victory over Kansas City last night. The
Yankees won the American League
pennant for the third year in a row.
Graig Nettles also homered for the
Yankees, who capped an amazing
comeback from 14 games behind at
midseason to capture their 32nd AL flag
with a 3-1 triumph in the best-of-5
The Yankee, having disposed of the
Royals in the playoffs for the third
straight year, will play the Los Angeles
Dodgers in baseball's 75th anniversary
World.Series beginning Tuesday in
New York managed only four hits
against Kansas City pitcher Dennis
Leonard, but two of them went for the
Nettles, leading off the second inning,
erased an early 1-0 Royals lead with the
third AL playoff homer of his career.
He tagged a 1-1 pitch, driving it into the
area beyond the right-center field fence
just in front of the bleachers.
The shot brought a shower of paper
from the capacity Yankee Stadium
crowd of more than 56,356, who had
seen the Royals nick Guidry for a quick
run in the first inning. The New York
ace, who logged a major league-leading
record of 25-3 including nine shutouts
during the regular season, gave up the
run before many of the fans were set-
tled in their seats.
George Brett, hitting star of the
series for the Royals, followed his
three-home run performance of Friday
with p leadoff triple off the right-center
field fence on Guidry's fourth pitch of
When it left Brett's bat, the ball
looked like it might be another homer.
But it fell short of the fence by a few
Two pitches later, the Royals had
their run when designated hitter Hal
McRae cracked a single up the middle.
It was the third consecutive time in this
playoff that the Royals had scored in
the first inning, and each time, the run
was carried home by Brett.
On the first pitch after his RBI single,
McRae stole second. Guidry then
struck out Amos Otis and got Al Cowens
on a popup before walking Darrell Por-
But he retired John Wathan on a long
fly to right field, escaping further
After Nettles tied the score in the
second, Leonard and Guidry settled in-
to an impressive pitching duel. The
Yankee left-hander eased his way out of
a two-on, two-out jam in the fourth.
