BASEBALL ROUNDUP
Balimre lassoes Rangers, 3-0

By e A ociatedPress
BALTIMORE - Mike Flanagan pit-
ched a four-hitter and Rich Dauer
keyed a three-run fifth inning with a
run-scoring single, keading the
Baltimore Orioles to a 3-0 victory over
the Texas Rangers last night.
Doyle Alexander, 3-4, had held the
Orioles hitless and faced the minimum
13 batters before Gary Roenicke
singled with one out to launch the win-
ning rally.
After Eddie Murray walked, Dauer
singled through the middle to score
Roenicke. Walks to Kiko Garcia and
Dave Skaggs forced in the second run
and Al Bumbry followed with a
sacrifice fly.
Flanagan, 7-4, allowed a game-
opening single to Bump Wills and then
retired 10 consecutive batters before
Buddy Bell beat out an infield hit in the
fourth.
A walk, an infield out and a single by
Nelson Norman put runners at first and
third in the Texas fifth, but Dave
Roberts grounded into an inning-ending
double play.
Johnny Grubb, who has a 20-game
hitting streak, entered the game as a
defensive replacement for Texas in the
eighth inning but did not come to bat.
Thus his hitting streak was not affec-
ted.
Boston 2, Minnesota 1
BOSTON - Two-out singles by Jim
Rice, Carl Yastrzemski and Carlton
Fisk in the eighth inning gave the
Boston Red Sox a 2-1 victory over the
Minnesota Twins and old nemesis Dave
Goltz last night.
Boston reliever Bob Stanley, 6-4,
threw only 12 pitches in retiring the last
four batters as the Red Sox posted their
fifth victory in the last six games.
Goltz, 5-6, who had beaten Boston five
times in a row since July 8, 1976, was
tagged with the loss when Fisk drove in
the tie-breaking run with a ground
single to left in the eighth.
The Red Sox took a 1-0 lead in the fifth
when Yastrzemski doubled to right-
center, went to third on Fisk's fly to
right and scored when Butch Hobson
bounced a single over the drawn-in in-
field.

The Twins, held to four hits for seven
innings by starter Steve Renko, tied it
in the eighth when Butch Wynegar
singled to left. Pinch-runner Dave Ed-
wards took second on a passed ball and
scored on a single to right by Ken Lan-
dreaux.
Houston 5, New York 0
NEW YORK-Joe Niekro scattered
four hits and posted his eighth con-
secutive victory as the Houston Astros
defeated the New York Mets 5-0 last
night.
Niekro, 9-2, tied a Houston club
record for consecutive wins set in 1969
by the late Don Wilson. It was Niekro's
fourth shutout and sixth complete game
this year. He struck out four and
walked two as Houston won for the 11th

time in its last 13 games.
Pat Zachry, 5-1, allowed the first
Houston run in the second inning when
Enos Cabell singled, stole second, con-
tinued to third on a throwing error by
catcher John Stearns and scored on Jeff
Leonard's single.
Houston scored four more in the sixth
when both Zachry and reliever Frank
Scott experienced streaks of wildness.
Cabell and Leonard singled and both
moved up on a wild pitch by Zachry. Af-
ter an intentional walk to Art Howe
loaded the bases, Alan Ashby drew a
walk to force in Cabell.
Zachry was then removed after his
first pitch to Niekro was a ball. Scott
walked Niekro to force Leondard home
and Howe scored when Terry Puhl

bounced into a force play. Scott then
balked Ashby home.
Cincinnati 3, Montreal 1
CINCINNATI-Unbeaten Mike LaCoss
of the Cincinnati Reds won his seventh
game of the season last night, scat-
tering seven hits and riding Dan
Driessen's home run to a 3-1 victory
over the Montreal Expos.
LaCoss struck out three and walked
four and lowered his earned-run
average to 2.36, best among National
League starters.
Driessen drove in Cincinnati's first
run in the fourth inning against Steve
Rogers with an RBI grounder. Larry
Parrish tied it 1-1 with a home run in the
sixth inning.

THE CUBS' TED SIZEMORE didn't make it past Davey Lopes in this attempt to take second. Indeed, the whole Chicago
team was halted as the Dodgers, led by Steve Garvey and Ron Cey with two-run homers, and Lopes with a solo, overwhelmed
the Cubs, 11-4, in a game that was eventually called because of rain.

Portland, San Diego
wait on Walton ruling

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The
Portland Trail Blazers announced
yesterday they have been unable to
reach agreement with the San Diego
Clippers on compensation for Bill.
Walton.
Team spokesman John White said the
matter was being turned over to NBA
Commissioner Larry O'Brien for a
ruling.
White said San Diego owner Irv Levin
and Portland owner Larry Weinberg
met three times in the Los Angeles
area.
"The meetings were very amicable
but they are absolutely at an impasse,"
White said.
. He said it was surprising the matter
would be turned over to the com-
missoner so soon.
Last month, Walton signed a seven-
year contract with the San Diego Clip-
pers fqr 4 salary reportedly exceeding

$800,000 per year, making him the
highest-paid player in professional
basketball.
Walton became a free agent at the
end of the current season after com-
pleting a five-year contract with the
Trail Blazers. Under NBA regulations,
the Clippers owe the Blazers adequate
compensation for signing the 6-foot-11
center.
