NEW YORK -- Dan Driessen, in Cin-
cinnati's lineup only because of a rule
change his manager detests, ripped a
home run and two other hits yesterday
night to lead the Reds tq a 6-2 victory
over the New York Yankees and a vir-
tually unbeatable three-game lead in base-
ball's 1976 World Series.
The victory left the Reds one triuniph
away fromn their second straight World
Championship. No team in the 72-year
history of the Series has lost the first
three games and come back to win the
best-of-seven showdown.
DRIESSEN, unable to crack the awe-
some regular 'lineup of the Reds, was in
the batting order as the designated hitter,
an American League rule that permits an
extra batter in place of the usually weak-
hitting pitcher.
Commissioner Bowie Kuhn ordered the
DH rule to be used in the Series for the
first time this year and Reds Mtanager
Sparky Anderson complied with the order
although he didn't like it.
At various times, Anderson has called
the DH "idiotic," "stupid," and a few
other choice things. But he had to like it
in Game 3 of the Series as Driessen led
the destruction of the Yankees.
Driessen got the Reds started on a
three - run rally in the second inning when

'ip tani
he beat out an infield single that ticked
off the pitcher's glove.
Second baseman Willie Randolph grab-
bed the ball, but his throw to first was an
eyelash too late to catch the speedy Dries-
ON THE first pitch to George Foster,
Driessen stole second and trotted home a
moment later as Foster, the major
leagues' runs - batted - in leader, drilled
a ground - rule double that bounced over
the right - center field fence on one hop.
Johnny Bench followed with a single off
the glove of first baseman Chris Chain-
Geronimo forcedstBench hrFoster scoedar
with the Reds' second run.
shortstop Fred Stanleyt dropped Thurma
Munson's throw on a pitchout. Dave Con-
cepcion blooped a single to left field and
Geroninmo scooted home for a 3-0 Cincin-
nati lead.
Two innings later, Driessen connected
on Ellis' second pitch and. sent it over the
right-field wall, making it 4-0. One out
later, Bench ripped his second hit and
Grant Jackson replaced Ellis. Jackson
ended the inning without further damage.
THE YANKEES nicked winner Pat
Zachry for a run in the fourth on hits by
Chambliss and Oscar Gamble sandwiched
around a walk to Graig"Nettles.



In the bottom of the seventh, New York
cut the Reds' lead to two runs when Jim
Mason, the Yankees' backup shortstop, hit
a home run into the seats in right field,
When Rivers walked and Munson added
a two-out single, it finished Zachry. Will
McEnaney came out of the bullpen to
face Chambliss, the Yankees' pennant hero

SWith their lead shaved to two runs, it
was time for the Reds' run makers to go
to work again.
PETE ROSE opened the eighth with a
single and dashed to third with a belly-
flop slide when Ken Griffey also singled.
It was Griffey's first hit of the Series in
his 12th at bat.

Driessen, who had doubled in his previous
at bat, loaded the bases. Foster then drill-
ed his second hit to left field, scoring the
final Cincinnati run,
That made it 6-2, and was a comfort-
able lead for McEnaney to work with
over the final two innings as he saved the
victory for Zachry.
