in the sixth inning to give the streaking
Baltimore Orioles a 5-3 victory over the
Boston Red Sox last night.
The victory was the 25th in the last 31
games for Baltimore and enabled the
Orioles to stretch their lead in the
American League East to 2 games
over the Red Sox.
DENNIS MARTINEZ, 7-2, scattered
10 hits in posting his seventh con-
secutive triumph. Mike Torrez, 4-3, was
Garcia's homer capped a three-run
rally in the sixth inning. Eddie Murray
opened the inning with a single and
went to second on second baseman
Jerry Remy's throwing error. John
Lowenstein singled Murray to third and
Gary Goenicke's sacrifice fly tied the
score. Garcia then cracked his second
bullpen in left-center.
BOSTON GRABBED A 2-0 lead in the
first inning as Remy, Fred Lynn and
Jim Rice singled for one run and Carl
Yastrzemski got the other run home
with a grounder. The Red Sox made it 3-
0 in the fifth when Remy singled Dwight
Evans home from second base.
Baltimore cut the lead to 3-2 in the fif-

Brewers pour it on
MILWAUKEE - Ben Ogilvie hit a
three-run homer and Sal Bando a solo
shot in a five-run Milwaukee third in-
ning, and the Brewers held on to defeat
the California Angels 9-6 Thursday.
Ogilvie crashed his ninth homer of
the season after a bunt single by Cecil
Cooper and.a pop-up by Dick Davis,
which fell for a bloop double when
second baseman Bobby Grich
misjudged it in the wind. Bando hit his
third homer one out later, stretching
the Brewers' lead to 7-0 and chasing
loser Chris Knapp, 3-2.
TWO WALKS and a single by Jim
Gantner off Mike Barlow pushed across
the fifth run of the inning.
The Angels broke a string of 21 suc-
cessive scoreless innings with five runs
in the fifth, closing to 8-5. Three walks
and a fielders-choice grounder scored
one run, and Dan Ford followed with an
RBI-single, the first hit off Brewer star-
ter Moose Haas.
A single by Don Baylor and a two-
base error by Davis in left field on the
play scored two more runs before Willie
'Mays Aikens hit an RBI double off
Jerry Augustine, 2-2.
Sonics bite Bullets,
even series at 1-1
FIRST ROUND leader Lanny Wadkins, his cap drenched with rain, wills
in a birdie putt on the ninth hole in yesterday's first round.
DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) - Lanny Wadkins, who conquered the howling
winds of Sawgrass with a record score, mastered equally difficult conditions
with a 3-under-par 69 and took the first-round lead yesterday in the
prestigious Memorial Golf Tournament.
"No," insisted Wadkins, "I don't really consider myself a bad weather
player. I'd rather be playing in 80-degree temperatures with sun and no wind
"Maybe I just concentrate better when the weather's bad."
And it was.
There was drizzling rain from dark, lowering clouds, blustery winds and
raw cold that sent the elite, invitational field shivering into layers of
sweaters and foul-weather gear. Wadkins wore a cap for the first time he
Still, his was one of only four sub-par rounds on a day when the course
that Jack built played at its most intimidating. The number of sub-par roun-
ds was the fewest yielded by the 7,101-yard Muirfield Village Golf Club cour-
se that host Jack Nicklaus constructed as his lifetime dream layout.
Mike McCullough, with a 70, was alone in second.
The only others to break par on the tree-lined, gently rolling hills -
where the young Nicklaus hunted rabbits and squirrels - were Mac McLen-
don and Ed Sneed with 71s.
Wayne Levi, Don Bies and Peter Jacobsen matched par 72.
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Gus
Williams scored 21 points and Dennis
Johnson scored 20 to lead the Seattle
SuperSonics to a 92-82 victory over the
Washington Bullets last night, evening
their best-of-seven National Basketball
Association championship series at 1-1.
The defending champion Bullets led
52-49 at halftime but managed to score
just 30 points in the second half as they
surrendered the home-court advantage
The Sonics' guards, led by Johnson
and Williams, outscored Washington's
backcourtmen 45-24, including a 21-6
advantage in the second half, when
Seattle's pressing defense totally
disrupted the Bullets' attack.
It was a game of streaks, Seattle
missing 14 consecutive shots during one
stretch in the middle of the game but
recovering to take advantage of
Washington's problems in the second
The Bullets scored just 14 points in
the third period and 16 in the fourth.
Their two highest scorers, Elvin Hayes
and Bob Dandridge, were scoreless in
the final 10 minutes.
