National Stars win again, 7-2
Dodgers' Garvey, Cey
provide scoring punch

PITTSBURGH {4P) - Ron
Cey and Steve Garvey of the
Los Angeles Dodgers drilled
run-scoring doubles that helped
the National League continue
its domination of the American
League with a 7-2 victory last
night in baseball's 45th an-
nual All-Star Game.
It was the 11th victory in the
past 12 All-Star games for the
National League, which now has
a 26-18-1 lead in a series it once
trailed 12-4. .
Garvey, who m i s s e d last
weekend's games with his Los
Angeles Dodgers because of the
ear infection, was considered a
doubtful starter until he arrived
here on the eve of this 45th All.
Star Game. But he insisted on
playing and was an integral
nary of the N's victory.
For his performance, Garvey
was voted the game's Most
Valsable Player.
Ken Brett of the Pittsburgh
Pirates, a former American
Leaguer, was the winning
pitcher with two shutout inn-
ings of relief and Luis Tiant of
the Boston Red Sox was the los-
er. He allowed three runs in
two innings of work.
Gaylord Perry, pitching for
the American League allowed
the first hit and first run of the
game in the bottom of the sec-
ond and also notched his third
strikeout by fanning Johnny
Bench to start the inning. Jim-
my Wynn's low smash was
short-hopped by shortstop Bert
Campaneris, who threw him
out. But Garvey singled up the
middle and scored when Cey,
his teammate on the Los An-
geles Dodgers, doubled over
Murcer's head in deep center.
Thurman Munson got the
AL's first hit in the third inn-
ing, a leadoff double down
the left field line. Perry sacri-

ficed him to third and Carew
walked.
Campaneris struck out for
the second time but Carew,
running on the pitch, stole sec-
ond. When catcher Bench's
throw was wild and went into
center field, Munson scored
and Carew continued to third
base. Allen brought Carew
home with a sharp single be-
tween third and short.
The National League quickly
touched Luis Tiant, the AL's
new hurler, for two runs and a
3-2 lead in the bottom of the
fourth. Bench led off with a
single to left and went to third
on Wynn's single to center.
Garvey ripped the first
pitch down the left field line
for a double that scored
Bench. Wynn took third on
the play and scored the go-
ahead run when Cey hit a
grounder to second.
The NL nicked Tiant for an
unearned run in the fifth inning
and took a 4-2 lead. Lou Brock,
batting for pitcher Ken Brett,
led off by grounding a single
between first and second. After
bluffing a couple of starts,
Brock stole second and con-
tinued to third when catcher
Munson threw wildly. Brock
scored on Morgan's sacrifice
liner to center.
Smith, a fo r m e r American
teaguer with Boston Red Sox
and now the Cardinals, led off
the bottom of the seventh with
a booming home run into the
right field stands. It was his
first in All-Star competition.
The National L e a g u e in-
creased its lead to 7-2 with a
pair of runs in the eighth off
Rollie Fingers on a walk to
Schmidt, Don Kessinger's triple
and a wild pitch.
