BASEBALL ROUNDUP
Surprising NL. clubs widen leads

By The Associated Press
The San Francisco Giants, powered
by Jack Clark's four RBI's, roared past
Houston, and the Chicago Cubs rode
Manny Trillo's homer and RBI single to
victory over Philadelphia yesterday,
widening their National League
divisional leads to 1 games.
The Giants' victory, helped by four
Astro errors that led to four unearned
runs, was San Francisco's 11th in their
last 13 games. The Giants opened a 1 -
game lead over Cincinnati and a 21/2-
game edge over Los Angeles in the NL
West. The Reds and Dodgers were idle.
Giants 9, Astros I
SAN FRANCISCO - Jack Clark
drove in four runs and the Giants
capitalized on four Houston errors for
four unearned runs and coasted to a 9-1
romp over the Astros behind the six-hit
pitching of Ed Halicki.
Doubles by Bill Madlock and Willie
McCovey gave the Giants a 1-0 lead in
the first and snapped a 22 -inning
scoreless string by Houston starter J.
R. Richard, 4-4. Richard's error

preceded a bases-loaded walk to Marc
Hill when the Giants scored their first
unearned run in the fourth.
* * *
Cubs 5, Phillies 1
CHICAGO - Manny Trillo drove in
two runs with a homer and a single and
reliever Bruce Sutter checked a seven-
th-inning uprising to give the Cubs their.
fifth straight victory, 5-1 over the
Phillies.
Rick Reuschel, 5-3, had a three-hit
shutout through six innings before
leaving with a stiff elbow. Willie Her-
nandez got into trouble by giving up a
walk and a double in the seventh before
Sutter came in and ended the threat to
notch his sixth save.
* * *
Expos 11, Cardinals 2
ST. LOUIS - Shortstop Garry Tem-
pleton's two errors opened-the door for
seven unearned runs in the third and
fourth innings and the Montreal Expos
rolled over the St. Louis Cardinals 11-2
yesterday, making Ross Grimsley the

National League's first seven-game
winner.
St. Louis righthander John Urrea, 2-6,
was the victim of the errors, surren-
dering six hits before departing during
a three-run Expos' burst in the fifth in-
ning.
* * *
Rangers 7, Twins I
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - Richie
Zisk and John Lowenstein drove in two
runs apiece and Ferguson Jenkins scat-
tered seven Minnesota hits for his fifth
victory of the year as the Texas
Rangers topped the Twins 7-1 yester-
day.
The Twins tied it in the second on

consecutive singles by Butch Wynegar,
Roy Smalley and Hoskin Powell. But
the Rangers went ahead to stay with an
unearned run in the-sixth when Bobby
Bonds singled, stole second, continued
to third on catcher Wynegar's wild
throw and scored on Zisk's single off
Serum.
Royals 9, Mariners 4
SEATTLE - George Brett's two-run
triple broke a 1-1 tie in the third inning
and Amos Otis' two-run single
highlighted a four-run fourth inning
that carried Paul Splittorff and the
Kansas City Royals past the Seattle
Mariners 9-4 yesterday.

Striking suspension
NEW YORK-Fred Lynn, the Boston Red Sox' usually mild-mannered
center fielder, was suspended for three days and fined an undisclosed
amount by the American League yesterday for an incident during last Sun-
day's game at Detroit.
Lynn became irate when he was called out on strikes by home plate um-
pire Nick Bremigan in the ninth inning of Boston's 2-1 loss, the first game of
a doubleheader split with the Tigers.
While arguing the call, Lynn bumped Bremigan, resulting in his ejec-
tion. The suspension covers Red Sox games last night in Toronto and tonight
and tomorrow in Boston against the Tigers.
Red Sox Manager Don Zimmer, who also argued vehemently with
Bremigan after the play and was ejected, also was fined, an American
League spokesman said. The amount of the fine was not disclosed.

Silverdome on Feb. 4, the league and the Detroit Pistons announced yester-
day.
