Royals beat Yanks;
Dodgers nip Phils

By The Associated Press
KANSAS CITY -- Hal McRae, who in-
furiated the New York Yankees in the
second game with two controversial
slides, destroyed them with a pair of
doubles that paced Kansas City to a 6-2
victory last night and a 2-1 lead in the
American League championship play-
off. .
Dennis Leonard pitched a masterful
four-hitter for the Royals' second vic-
tory in the best-of-five series, leaving
Kansas City only one triumph away
from its first World Series.
Amos Otis, angered by a lineup swit-
ch that benched him, delivered a clutch
two-run pinch double that supplied the
Royals' wrapup runs, but it was the
two-base hits by McRae that dug the
hole from which the Yankees never

regular season was the highest total for

times on infield outs by Al Cowens.
McRae had been credited Thursday
night with awakening the Yankees by
his aggressive slides into second base-
man Willie Randolph and shortstop
Bucky Dent. But Leonard put the
Yainkee bats right back to sleep with a
powerful performance. He was in con-
trol throughout.
After Roy White doubled in the first
inning but was out trying to stretch his
hit, Leonard retired 12 Yankees in or-
der, and by the time New York put
another man on base, Kansas City had
a lead it would never surrender.

score, but we were unable to convert
the good scoring chances into goals,"
said Michigan Coach Phyllis Ocker.
"They (Guelph) broke through 6tir
de ense a couple of times to score their
goals. They took advantage of their
scoring chances," explained Ocker.
