NEW YORK (AP)- Bob Watson, one
f those Yankees' "Old Folks,"
uscled a three-run homer in the first
inning that carried New York to a 5-3
victory last night over the Los Angeles
Dodgers in the first game of the 1981
World Series.
The 35-year-old Watson and some of
his veteran teammates had come under
fire by Yankees owner George Stein-
brenner during New York's American
East Division play-off series
ith Milwaukee.
But Watson, who had 11 hits in the
division and championship series, an-
swered Steinbrenner's complaints
again with a home run in his first World
Series at-bat.
THE VICTORY went to Ron Guidry,
11-5 with a 2.76 earned run average
during the season. He checked Los
Angeles on four hits and six strikeouts
through seven innings before retiring in
favor of relievers Ron Davis and then
Goose Gossage.
The Dodgers scored their last two
runs in the eighth inning, but the
Yankees were saved from further
damage in that frame when third
baseman Graig Nettles made a spec-

tacular leaping catch of a drive by
Steve Garvey.
The Yankees struck for three runs in
the first inning on the home run by Wat-
son.
WITH ONE out, Mumphrey singled to
right and after Winfield struck out,
Piniella hit a ground rule double into
the right field corner.
Watson then drilled a 1-2 pitch over
the right-center field fence, becoming
the 17th player in history to hit a home
run in his first World Series at bat.
New York knocked out Reuss in the
third when Mumphrey drilled his
second hit of the game, stole second and
scored on Piniella's single to left,
making it 4-0. Bobby Castillo relieved
Reuss at that point.
Piniella stole second and Watson
walked before Castillo got Nettles to fly
out to right.
Guidry, meanwhile, mowed down the
Dodgers, allowing only Steve Garvey's
leadoff single in the second over the fir-
st three innings. The Yankee left-
hander struck out four consecutive bat-
ters over one stretch, retiring
Guerrero, Monday, Yeager and Reuss,
all on swinging third strikes.

Gov. Carey bets his apples
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Hugh
Carey says he is so convinced that the
New York Yankees will chew up the Los
Angeles Dodgers in the World Series
that he's willing to wager New York
apples against California oranges.
"I'll wager Los Angeles Mayor Tom
Bradley that we take them in not more
than five games," a Yankee-boosting
Carey told reporters yesterday. "And
$5 to the winner."
"He can pay me in oranges. I'll pay
him in apples," said the governor. "No
fruit flies in our apples."
Carey also said it would be nice for
Los Angeles to win one because "Tom-
my Lasorda's a nice guy."
"Having done what they've done to
Oakland I feel sorry for Los
Angeles," said Carey. "We can beat
anybody in California."
