CHICAGO APl-Joe Gilliam
came off the bench in the
final quarter and hurled
two touchdown passes to
lead the Pittsburgh Steelers
to a 21-14 victory over foot-
ball's College All-Stars last
night before a near-capac-
ity crowd of 54,562.
Not u n t i l Gilliam hit
Frank Lewis with a 22-yard
touchdown pass with 4:16
left in the game did the
Steelers lead in the tightly-
played contest.
The All-Stars, who haven't
won a game since their 1963
counterparts defeated the Green
Bay Packers 20-17, broke in

pass from Steve Rartkowski of
California to Pat McInally of

from Western Kentucky who is
headed for the Chicago Bears,
returned a punt a record 88
yards for a touchdown and a
14-7 lead.
THE ALL-STARS protected
the lead until only 10:19 remain-
ed in the game when Gilliam
directed a 42-yard touchdown
march, capped by a six-yard
scoring pass to Rocky Bleier.
The next time the Steelers got
the ball, Gilliam guided them
15 yards to another score, cap-
ped by his touchdown strike to
Lewis.
Unable to gain on the ground,
the All-Stars maintained com-
mand on the deft punting of
Neil Clabo of Tennessee. Clabo
hit on a deep punt with the score

because of illegal motion against
the All-Stars. His second try

and one to Larry Brown before
hitting Lewis with the payoff

The victory was the 30th in

BULLETIN
NEW YORK SP)-The New
York Yankees have fired Man-
acer Bill Virdon and will re-
nelce him with controversial
Billy Martin, the Associated
Press learned last night.
The New York Daily News,
xshich carried a similar story
in its Saturday editions, said
the agreement between Martin
and the Yankees was sealed
earlier this week in a meet-
ing in Denver, where the fiery
former Yankee second base-
man had gone to make a
sneech. The News also specu-
l-ted that Virdon could wind
on being the manager of the
Texas Rano.ers, the club which
fired Martin two weeks ago.
of a penalty. Bobby Walton punt-
ed and the All-Stars got rolling
with a 48-yard pass completion
from Bartowski to Larry Burton
of Purdue. Two plays later, Bar-
tkowski hit McInally with a 28-
yard touchdown pass for a 7-0
lead.
The score was costly since
McInally, a star receiver from
Harvard who was drafted by the
Cincinnati Bengals, suffered a
broken bone in his left leg on
the scoring play and had t> be
carried off the field on a stretch-
er.

BOSTON - Rookie pitcher
Gene Pentz' wild throw gave
Boston the tie-breaking run in
a two-run ninth inning that car-
ried the Red Sox to an 8-7 vic-
tory over the Detroit Tigers last
night.
Willie Horton's second home
run of the game, a three-run
shot, had tied the score with
two outs in the top of the
ninth, then Bill Freehan's sec-
ond of the game had given
Detroit a 7-6 lead.
But in the bottom of the ninth,
Denny Doyle singled to short
and continued to second on Gene
Michael's wild throw, Carl Yas-
trzemski singled Doyle home
and moved to second in the
throw to the plate.
After Fred Lynn was walked
intentionally, Jim Rice bunted
down the third base line. Pentz,
0-1, fielded the ball but had no
play at first. So he tried for an
out at third and threw the ball
past the base, allowing Yastr-
zemski to score.
Tribe tripped
NEW YORK-Thurman Mun-
son knocked in the tie-breaking
run in a two-run third inning
and Sandy Alomar sent home
the winning run with a triple in
the sixth last night, leading the

New York Yankees to a 5-4 vic-
tory over the Cleveland Indians.
Catfish Hunter, 14-10, got
the victory with relief help
from Tippy Martinez and Dick
Tidrow. Tidrow was bailed out
by a last-out, somersaulting
catch by shortstop Fred Stan-
ley with the tying run on
third.
Htnter gave up two runs to
Cleveland in the second on
Boog Powell's 16th home run
and Jack Brohamer's RBI dou-
ble. Hunter gave up nine hits
before giving way to Martinet
in the top of the eighth.

CHICAGO - Bake McBride's
two-run single in the four-run
fifth inning and strong relief
pitching by Bob Gibson led the
St. Louis Cardinals to a 9-4 vic-
tory over the Chicago Cubs yes-
terday.
McBride opened the game
with a bunt single, stole second,
continued to third on a throw-
ing error and scored as Reggie
Smith grounded out.
His two-run single in the fifth
followed a leadoff double by Ron
Fairly and a pair of fielder's
choices involving an error, and
n run-scoring single by Mike
Tyson.
