the NL back in control.
Boston's George Scott boom-
ed a long two-run homer to
right centerfield in the bottom
of the ninth, pullinng the AL
within two runs, but that was
as close as they got.
DON SUTTON of the Los An-
geles Dodgers blanked the AL
on just one hit over the first
three innings and watched the
long ball power of his National
League teammates construct an
early 5-0 lead off Baltimore's
Jim Palmer.
Morgan, the Cincinnati second
baseman who has been his
league's Most Valuable Player
in each of the last two seasons,
led off for the NL, and Palmer,
the AL starting pitcher, worked
carefully to him.
"I got behind 3-0 and I
didn't want to walk him," said
Palmer.
The count went to 3-2 before
Morgan ripped the next pitch
into the lower stands in right
field. It was the first run scored
in All-Star competition off Pal-
mer after eight shutout innings
for the three-time Cy Young
Award winner.
After Garvey, the Los Angeles
first baseman, struck out, Pitts-
burgh's Dave Parker singled to
left field and George Foster of
Cincinnati followed with a dou-
ble to left centerfield.

badly bruised right instep, had
to chase the ball down and
Parker circled the bases, barely
beating the relay to the plate
Foster then advanced to third
on a wild pitch and Palmer
went to work on Luzinski, the
husky Philadelphia outfielder
who had thrilled the crowd of
56,683 at Yankee Stadium with
a series of batting practice
home runs. This time he hit one
for real.
It cache on a 3-2 pitch sod
also went into the lower deck is
right field, close to the spot
Where Morgan's had landed.
Palmer finished the inning
with two more strikeouts, but
the NL had a 4-0 lead before
the Americans had come to
bat. In the third, the Nationals
added a run when Garvey led
off with another homer, knock-
ing out Palmer.
"I guess," said Palmer,
"you can say I didn't pitch
very well,"
Sutton, the winning pitcher
who was given the Commission-
er's Trophy as the outstanding
player of the game, was happier
with his three shutout innings.
"The way I feel about pitch-
ing in this stadium for the first
time . . . I was in total awe,"
said Sutton, who grew up as a
Yankee fan.

CINCINNATI'S JOE MORGAN strikes a classic pose as he watches the ball sail over the right
field fence in the opening inning of last night's All-Star contest. With the blast, Morgan becomes
only the fourth lead-off man to homer in All-Star history. The others were Frankie Frisch
in 1934, Lou Boudreau in 1942 and Willie Mays in 1965.
