MAJOR LEAGUE ROUNDUP
Rose rolls on as Reds rally, 8-6

By The Associated Press
CINCINNATI - George Foster drove
in five runs with two homers and scored
the eventual winning run, while Pete
Rose extended his hitting streak to 30
games as the Cincinnati Reds rallied to
defeat the Montreal Expos 8-6 last
night.
Rose slapped a single into right field
in the fifth inning. The hit gave Rose
3,082 for his career, placing him 10th on
the all-time list and moving him past
Cap Anson.
Montreal's Tony Perez - who had
four hits and four RBI for the night -
cracked a home run and a double in the

first two at bats as Montreal jumped
out to a 5-0 lead.
Foster's five RBI gave him 71 for the
season.
Dodgers down Cubs
CHICAGO - Reggie Smith's second
home run of the game, an eighth-inning
shot off Rick Reuschel, snapped a tie
and carried the Los Angeles Dodgers to
a 4-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs
yesterday.
Smith, who belted an opposite field
homer out of the park with Bill Russell
on base in the first, hit his 13th homer of
the season with one out in the eighth.

Reuschel's record fell to 8-7. Terry
Forster, 2-2, who relieved Dodger star-
ter Tommy John to start the seventh,
was the winner. Rookie Bob Welch
finished up.
Rangers roll
BALTIMORE - A sacrifice fly by
Bobby Bonds snapped a scoreless tie in
the 11th inning and Juan Beniquez
followed with a home run, giving the
Texas Rangers a 2-0 victory over the
Baltimore Orioles.

the 11th off Mike Flanagan, 13-7, stole
his 28th base in 32 attempts and con-
tinued to third when he kicked catcher
Rick Dempsey's throw into left field.
Bonds, who had two of the nine Texas
hits, lined out to center field and the

throw from Larry Harlow struck the
mound and bounced high into the air as
Wills scored.
Reggie Cleveland, 3-5, pitched the
final two innings in relief of rookie
Steve Comer.
Still Brewing

NHL on trial
BUFFALO, N.Y.-U.S. District Judge John T. Elfvin yesterday set a
Nov. 14 trial date for the antitrust suit filed against the National Hockey
League by Greg Neeld, a hockey player who is blind in one eye.
Neeld has accused the NHL of conspiring with other minor hockey
leagues "to deprive him of an opportunity to advance in professional
hockey," said his attorney, Daniel S. Mason.
Neeld lost the use of his left eye in 1973 when he was struck by a hockey
stick during a minor league game. He was a fourth-round draft pick in 1975
by the Buffalo Sabres but was barred from playing by an NHL rule
proscribing one-eyed players.
The judge also denied the NHL's motion to dismiss the case, saying that
there were sufficient facts to warrant presentation to a jury.

Is there a Doce...
BALTIMORE-Quick action by Texas pitcher George 'Doc' Medich
apparently saved the life of a baseball fan in Baltimore's Memorial Stadium
prior to last night's game between the Rangers and the Baltimore Orioles.
Medich, a first-year resident in general surgery at Pittsburgh's
Allegheny General Hospital, stopped his pre-game running in the outfield af-
ter hearing public address announcer Rex Barney say that a doctor was
needed in Section 7, which is near the third base dugout.
Medich, who said he had been involved in 25 such cases since starting his
medical training, immediately took charge at administering the emergency
treatment.

ONE OF THE slowest Port Huron to
Mackinac races is over, and correc-
ted times have given Windancer,
skippered by John Nedeau, the early
lead yesterday. A Detroit-based
yacht, Sassy, crossed the finish line
first, but handicaps are added to
compensate for boat size. Top con-
tender Tenacious, piloted by Ted
Turner, slipped to third as the fleet
was plagued by a lack of wind on
northern Lake Huron.
