CINCINNATI OP) - F i r s t-
game hero Ty Cline and se-
cond-game hero Bobby Tolan
combined their efforts yesterday
in the third game of the Na-
tional League playoff series -
and now the Cincinnati Reds
are headed for the World Series
against Baltimore.
A two-out walk by Cline and
a two-strike single by Tolan ul-
timately produced an eighth-in-
ning run that proved decisive
as the Reds swept the playoff
series with a final 3-2 victory
over Pittsburgh.
But there was a moment of
doubt - and Alex Grammas, the
Red's third base coach, admit-
ted after the game it was a
gamble when Cline raced to-
ward home on Tolan's single.
Soccermen
even record
Michigan's soccer squad evened
their record in the Toledo League
Sunday by romping to a 5-1 win
over the Chem Bombers in a game
at Toledo.
The Wolverines withstood an
early shock when the Bombers
scored with less than five minutes
gone in the contest. But, after
that Michigan shut out their op-
ponents while booting in five
goals.
Leading the onslaught was Ed-
ward Jean Gilles who scored twice.
Steve Panaretos, Tail Khan, and'
Daniel Mereau all contributed a
point to the winning effort. The
Wolverines now stand 1-1 in the
Toledo Conference and ar e
scheduled to play The Arsenal
next Sunday.

The stage was set for the run
that would bring Cincinnati its
first pennant since 1961, when
the Reds, humbled on three hits
by sore-elbowed Bob Moose go-
ing into the eighth inning, sent
Cline to bat with two out.
All but one of the 20 Reds to
face Moose had been set down
since Tony Perez and Johnny
Bench homered in the first in-
ning. So Cincinnati Manager
Sparky Anderson called for
Cline.
Cline, who triggered the first
game victory with a triple in the
10th inning that led to a 3-0 vic-
tory, responded by drawing a
walk. Pete Rose moved him to
second and that was all for
Moose, who left to a standing
ovation from a crowd of 40,538.
Joe Gibbon, a 35-year-old left-
hander came on and got two
quick strikes on Tolan, who
scored all three runs in Satur-
day's 3-1 victory.
But the third pitch to the
lefthanded swinger was poked
to left field. Cline careened
around third as Willie Stargell
prepared to fire home.
And here Grammas gambled.
"I was gambling," Grammas
admitted frankly. "The percent-
age was against us. Stargell has
a heck of an arm."
Cline confirmed t h a t in-
directly."
"I didn't even see the sign,"
he said. "I lost Alex completely."
So Cline headed toward the
plate at the same time as Star-
gell was throwing home. Pitts-
burgh catcher Manny Sanguillen
dove with the ball as Cline slid
in. But Cline got their first, and
the champagne was ready for
popping.

BALTIMORE (P) - The Bal-
timore Orioles are back in the
World Series again after fin-
ishing off Minnesota 6-1 yester-
day to complete a three-game
playoff sweep a n d nail down
their second straight American
League pennant.
Jim Palmer's seven-hit, 12-
strikeout pitching wiped out the
Twins in a one-sided game ev-
ery bit as one-sided as the first
two had been.
The Twins, Western Division
champs, led only once in the en-
tire three-game series and then
for only one-half inning at the
very start of the opener.
And when pitcher Mike Cuel-
lar's wind-blown fly ball sailed
into the stands for a grand slam
homer in Saturday's opener, it
started a slide that never stop-
ped for Minnesota. The Birds
won the game 10-6 and then
wallowed the Twins 11-3 Sun-
day.
That meant Minnesota's only
hope was to take three straight

-Associated Press
TY CLINE, Cincinnati's premier bench-warmer, slides home
ahead of Pittsburgh catcher Manny Sanquillen's tag to score
the Reds' winning run yesterday. Cline came in on a two-out
single by Bobby Tolan in the eighth inning to give the Reds
the NL title.

from the Orioles in Baltimore
- a vel'y slim hope at best.
The Birds ended that hope in
a hurry, jumping to a 5-0 lead
in the first three innings and
making the Twins play catch-
up baseball. The same thing had
happened in the first two games
with the Orioles leading 9-2 af-
ter 31/2 innings of the opener
and 4-0 after 3%/2 of the second
game.
"I don't think we played as
well as we are capable of against
them," said Bill Rigney, man-
ager of the Twins. "We gave
them too much in this series -
something'we didn't do in the
regular season."
"We wanted to wind it up as
quickly as we could," said Bal-
timore slugger FranktRobinson.
"That's why we wanted to win
it today."
It marked the second straight
year that the Orioles had wiped
out the Twins in three straight
playoff games and gave them
14 consecutive victories includ-
ing the 11 straight they strung
together at the end of the reg-
ular season.
Palmer w a s overpowering,
striking out 12 Twins and domi-
nating the show. Some shoddy
Minnesota fielding and timely
Baltimore hitting provided a 5-
0 lead in the first three innings
and after that, Palmer, 20-10
during the regular season, just
coasted.
The Birds, who took charge
early in each game of this ser-
ies, nicked Jim Kaat for a run
in the first on singles by Don
Buford and Boog Powell sand-
wiched around P a u 1 Blair's
sacrifice.

SIZEMORE TO CARDS
iiehie Allen traded to Dodgers

$1

ST. LOUIS UP) - T h e St.
Louis Cardinals unloaded Richie
Allen, the controversial slugger,
less than one year after they
acquired him, in a trade with
the Los Angeles Dodgers Mon-
day for infielder Ted Sizemore
and minor league catcher Bob
Stinson.
Sizemore, 24, was a catcher at
Michigan before being convert-
ed to an infielder and going on
to cop National League rookie of
the year in 1969. He hit .306 in
1970, starting at shortstop and
moving to second base later.
The 28-year-old Allen, on his

best behavior with the Cardinals
after on-and-off the field trou-
bles in Philadelphia, was prais-
ed by b o t h General~ Manager
Bing Devine and Manager Red
Schoendienst of the Cards.
"Allen did the job we expect-
ed of him," said Devine. "In
fact, we couldn't have asked for
anything more, but the needs
of our ball club and winning
games came first."
Allen did a fine job for us
and we never had any problems
with him," said Schoendienst.
"He was hurt the last few weeks
but he tried, I'll say that."

ner and outfielder B y r o n
Browne.
"I know it sounds on the sur-
face like we've made an extra-
ordinary sacrifice to get Size-
more," said Devine, "but you
have to think in terms of what
we need. Our club wasn't bal-
anced enough and it just wasn't
to be that we were going to be
able to fortify it without con-
siderable sacrifice."

0 ATLANTA - Coach Norm Van Brocklin of the Atlanta Falcons
called the National Football League's encroachment rule "unfair as
hell" yesterday and suggested it should be amended during kicking
situations.
The rule, under which a defensive team has no option, gave San
Francisco a second shot at a missed field goal attempt Sunday and
Bruce Gossett drilled through a 4-yarder that gave the 49ers a
20-14 lead over Atlanta six lminutes deep in the final quarter.

Gridde Pickings

- - I

From the far corners of the earth come our entries for Gridde
Pickings, and from the far corners of Washtenaw County comes this
week's winner, Lee MacMillan of Ypsilanti.
Congratulations, Lee. You showed 'em how to pick 'em. It was
a narrow race, too. You won in a tie with a delightful two year old,
who, fortunately for you, cannot count as well as she can pick
winners and lost on the basis of the score of the Michigan game.
And what's wrong with the rest of you Daily readers. Does it say
something about the quality of our audience that a foreigner and a
two-year-old girl have the best Picks? Or maybe you knew what
a Cottage Inn Pizza tastes like and lost purposely?
