lBrawl mars Boston's
8-2 win over Yanks

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK -- Carl Yastr-
zemski slammed a pair of two-
run homers, giving him a re-
cord - tying five in two games
and powering the Boston Red
Sox to a fight-filled 8-2 victory
over the New York - Yankees
last night.
Yastrzemski hit a tie-break-
ing homer in the eighth inning
and capped a four - run ninth
with his seventh of the sea-
son, again with a man on base.
It was the 11th time in major
league history one player hit
five in two consecutive games
and the first time an American
Leaguer did it since New
York's Tony Lazzeri in 1936.
Rick Burleson homered with
a man on base in the seventh
for Boston's first two runs as
the surging Red Sox defeated
Ed Figueroa, 3-3, for only the
second time in six career deci-
sions. Burleson's shot was the
first- Boston homer over off
A bench - clearing brawl
erupted in the seventh inning:
after a collision at home plate
between Yankee runner Lou
Piniella and Red Sox catcher
Carlton Fisk.

Boston pitcher Bill Lee, who
was ejected along with New
York third baseman Graig Net-
tles, apparently was injured in
the melee. The left - hander,
bent over and clutching his
pitching shoulder, walked off
the field assisted by the Red
Sox trainer.
The fight began after Boston
right fielder Darrel Evans
threw Piniella out at the plate
as he tried to score from sec-
ond on a single by Otto Velez.
Piniella bowled Fisk over while
trying to jar the ball loose and
the two players rushed each
other as they sat on the ground.
Then they began swinging.
Nettles, who was on base at
the time, charged after Lee as
players from both benches
poured into the scrap around
home plate. After things quiet-
ed for a minute, Nettles went
after Lee for a second time
with first baseman Chris
Chambliss and outfielder Mick-
ey Rivers of the Yankees
swinging on the outskirts of the
Nettles and Lee were the only
players ejected.
Philhies fly
NEW YORK - The Philadel-
nhia Phillies jumped on Tom
Seaver for four runs in the first
inning, two on Greg Luzinski's
double, and held on to beat the
New York Mets 5-3 yesterday
behind Jim Lonborg and Tug
Dave Kingman of the Mets
and Mike Schmidt of the Phil-
lies each hit his 15th home run,
of the season to retain their
co-leadership of the major
league lead.
The unbeaten Lonborg scatter-
ed nine hits in 623 innings to
pick up his sixth victory of the
season. Seaver absorbed his
third straight loss after posting

four straight victories.
Dave Cash opened the game
for the Pils with a walk and
raced to third when Larry Bowa
singled to right. After Schmidt
struck out, Luzinski scored both
runners with his double into the
right field corner.
After that decisive first, Sea-
ver pitched no-hit bali for the
next five innings and didn't
give up another run until
Schmidt home red in the
.The Mets were held scoreless
by Lonborg until the sixth when,
with one out, John Milner sin-
gled past first base and King-
man crashed his 15th homer of
the season.
Schmidt hit the first pitch he
saw in the eighth inning into
the Philadelphia bullpen for his
15th homer of the year, moving
him back into a tie with King-
man for the major league lead.
Redbirds romp
ST. LOUIS -- Mike Tyson's
two-run single capped a four-

vaged the final game of a
four-game series from the Pi-
rates, who had beaten them
five straight times.

first with a single off Doc Med-
ich and stole his fifth base of
the season before scoring two
outs later on Reggie Smith's

the first of his four hits, and
