Yaz blows bid for 3000

By The AssociatedPress
BOSTON - Carl Yastrzemski,
thwarted in his bid for hit No. 3,000,.
made a wild throw to home plate in the
eighth inning, allowing two runs to
score, and the New York Yankees went
on to an 8-3 victory over the Boston Red
Sox last night.
Yastrzemski went hitless in three of-
ficial at-bats against former teammate
Luis Tiant and relievers Ron Davis, 11-
2, and Rich Gossage as he failed for the
second night to get hit No. 3,000 of his
career.
YASTRZEMSKI DREW a walk, pop-
ped to second baseman WillieRandolph
in shallow center field, flied to right and
fouled to catcher Jerry Narron.'
Trailing 3-2, the Yankees tied the
score on Reggie Jackson's eighth-
inning double off reliever Tom
Burgmeier, 3-2, and added the winning
runs with the bases loaded as Yaz
fielded a grounder by Graig Nettles,
tried for the force at home and threw
the ball past catcher Mike O'Berry.
Pittsburgh 7, St. Louis 3

the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the St.
Louis Cardinals 7-3 last night.
It was the 13th triuinph in 17 games
for the Pirates, who scored five sixth-
inning runs off John Denny, 7-11.
WITH PITTSBURGH trailing 3-2 in
the bottom of the sixth, Dave Parker
led off with a single and Stargell
smacked an opposite-field homer to
left, his 28th of the season.
Ed Ott followed with a run-scoring
single off Darold Knowles and Phil
Garner singled home two more runs off
Roy Thomas.
Roberts, who raised his record to 4-3
on his 35th birthday, pitched four
scoreless innings and was aided by
three double plays.
Montreal 8, Chicago 6
MONTREAL-Andre Dawson drove
in three runs while Dave Cash and
Larry Parrish drove in two runs apiece,
and the Montreal Expos held on to edge
the Chicago Cubs 8-6 in the first game of
a doubleheader last night.

David Palmer, 9-2, worked the first
7% innings and earned his sixth con-
secutive victory as a starter to equal a
club record.
CASH CAPPED a four-run fourti
with a two-run, bases-loaded single:
The hit was preceded by Ellis Valen-
tine's RBI single and a run-scoring
triple by Parrish.
Parrish hit his 23rd homer of the year
leading off the sixth, and Dawson
delivered a run with an infield hit to
make it 7-1.

A Daily Sports Analysis
It can develop as early as July or as late as the
first week in October. Its symptoms are obvious: stir-
crazy fans, a high-strung media blitz, and the
ceremonious printing of playoff tickets.
"Pennant fever" is an annual epidemic in Boston,
Cincinnati, and Kansas City, but now the welcomed
disease has spread to two unlikely places, Houston
and Montreal.
Surprisingjy, two National League cities have seen
their title hopes fade faster than snow in Florida.
Both Los Angeles and Philadelphia are well out of
contention in their respective divisions, the Dodgers
trying desperately to topple the .500 barrier, while the
Phillies attempt to trim the fat off the league-leading
Pittsburgh Pirates, whom they trail by 14 games
heading into last night's action.
The Pirates, meanwhile must hold off the Cin-
derella Expos, who have won 10 of their last 11 con-
tests. Pittsburgh has tediaciously fought off a Mon-
treal takeover by coming out on the long end in eight
of their last 11 games; thus their lead remains a
tenuous one game.
-Pittsburgh has a slight statistical edge in the hit-'

ting department. The Pirates are hitting at a .273 clip,
12 points higher than the Expos and have outscored
Montral by 4.7 runs per game to 4.2 margin.
Dave Parker, Willie Stargell and Omar Moreno
(the top National League base stealer with 66) lead
the Pirate offense while Warren Cromartie, Andre
Dawson and Larry Parrish (with the NL's fifth best
batting average) pace the attack for Montreal.
Both teams possess excellent pitching staffs. Stan-
douts for the Expos include Steve Rogers and Dan
Schatzeder. Pittsburgh ably counters with a crew led
by John Candeleria and relief ace Kent Tekulve.
If there is a major edge for either team it may be,
found in the schedule. Montreal has 26 games left (13
at home) while the Pirates only have 20 left (12 at
home).
While four of the six remaining games between the
two clubs are in Pittsburgh, the other contests give
the surging Expos a distinct advantage. Considering
the way Montreal has played in recent weeks, the
Pirates will have a difficult task staying atop in this
tight race.
Moving west, anyone who thought that the Houston
Astros and Cincinnati Reds would be fighting for the

Western division title in September probably would
havu been laughed at. Most people figured on the
Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants as frontrun-
ners. Neither team has come close to contending for
first place, however.
The two teams play each other four more times.
They square off tonight to end a two-game set in Cin-
cinnati, and Houston will hold the home-field advan-
tage for the final three-game series.
On paper, the edge would have to go to Cincinnati.
Though the Astros have better pitching, the Reds hold,
a sizable edge in hitting and total offense.
Cincinnati's batting average is 12 points higher
than Houston's, and the Reds have outscored the
Astros by more than one run per game (4.7 to 3.5).
Cincinnati has also out-homered Houston by more
than a 2-1 margin. (Houston has only hit 45 home runs
through 133 games.)
Despite Cincinnati's statistical edge, the Astros pit-
ching staff (J. Rodney Richard, relief star Joe Sam-
bito and ex-Tiger Joe Niekro, to name a few) and the
team's ability to win close games has kept them at or
near first place all year.

Tigers explode early,
dismantle Tribe, 14-1x

By SCOTT M LEWIS
Special to The Daily
DETROIT - Cler.-land' Spilint-r waxz at his worst. The,
Tilt ra naided him in the firxt. Fifth place ix J'irhy w4fe
for now. Ax the, Be tngala trouned the, Tribe, - and how.
Jason Thompson's three-run
double set off an eight-run first inning
onslaught last night as the Tigers
bombarded Cleveland, 14-1, here.
The win hiked the Tiger record to
77-68, two and one-half games ahead
of sixth-place Cleveland.
Dave Rozema, (4-3), making only,
his second start since coming off the
disabled list Aug. 27, recorded his
first win since June 3. His career
record against Cleveland is now 5-0.
CLEVELAND starter Dan
Spillner had his problems, many of'
his own doing. He pitched to eight
batters in the first, walking three,
allowing four hits and retiring one
Tiger.
Ron Le.Flore led the Tigers with
three hits, and began the scoring
spree by coming home via three
straight walks. Jason Thompson's

double cleared the bases while four+
singles, a stolen base, and two
ground balls completed the barrage.
Detroit rookie Rick Peters had a
two-run single in the first, his first
major league hit.
THE TIGERS added another pair
of runs in the second off Wayne
Garland. Lance Parrish crashed his
18th home run, a two-run, 430-foot
drive to left center and Ron
LeFlore's RBI triple in the third
made the count 11-0.
With the game well in hand, the
Tiger crowd of 7,983 amused itself by
cheering the visitors. The main
target was designated hitter Cliff
Johnson, whose swollen fingers
prevent him from gripping the bat
tightly.
On four consecutive foul balls,
Johnson's bat sailed in the direction
of Rozema. Unaware of his injury,
the fans first chided, and then booed
Johnson as he slowly retrieved'his
bat.
Poor Cliff. Poor Tribe.
