WIN IN 6 GAMES

Phillies

't ug

series

from KC,

PHILADELPHIA:
From Wire Service Reports
A fired up Tug McGraw survived a.
bases loaded Kansas City rally in the
ninth inning to preserve a 4-1 victory
and the first World Series champion-
ship in the history of the Philadelphia
Phillies. World Series MVP Mike Sch-
midt led the hitting barrage with a two'
iun single in the third inning to put the
Phillies ahead to stay. Phillie starter
and winner Steve Carlton held the
Royals at bay until McGraw entered in
the eighth inning. Carlton recorded
seven strikeouts in his second victory of
the 1980 World Series.
Carlton struck out the first two
fatters he faced and held the Royals
itless through the first three innings,
while Mike Schmidt drove in two runs
4ith a single in the third as the Phillies

jumped to a 2-0 lead.
Carlton fanned Willie Wilson on three
pitches to open the game, then got U.L.
Washington to fish for a 3-2 fastball.
George Brett's groundout gave Carlton
a 1-2-3 inning.
He worked out of a mild jam in the
second with the benefit of a double play.
With one out and the crowd of about
65,000 cheering his every move, Carlton
allowed Amos Otis to work the count to
3-2 before walking him. r
Carlton, holding Otis at first, threw
over to first base twice with Willie
Aikens waiting at the plate. Otis once
complained that Carlton had balked. On
each throw, Otis wasted as much time
as he could, as he had done while bat-
ting.

Otis' delaying tactics seemed to
distract Carlton, and Aikens walked on
a 3-2 pitch. However, Carlton got out of
it when John Wathan hit a perfect
double play grounder to shortstop
Larry Bowa, and Carlton set down the
side in order in the third, striking out
two more.
Gale, meanwhile, yielded a hit in
each of the first two innings, including
Garry Maddox's second-inning double,
but did not get into real trouble until the
third.
Gale walked Bob Boone on four pit-
ches to start the inning, and Lonnie
Smith then bounced into what looked
like an easy forceout. But the throw by
Royal: second baseman Frank White
was wide, pulling shortstop Washington
off second, and both runners were safe.
The bases were loaded after Pete Rose
beat out a bunt.
Schmidt then lined a 1-1 pitch into
right field, scoring two runs and
chasing Gale. Frey called on right-
hander Renie Martin, who pitched out
of the inning, by getting Bake McBride
to pop up, Greg Luzinski to line to third
and Maddox to fly out to left.
Washington ended any thought of a
World Series no-hitter when he led off
the Royals fourth with a single to deep
short. Still, Carlton continued to turn in
the strongest pitching performance in

this 77th edition of baseball's Fall
Classic. He held Kansas City's potent
offense scoreless through six innings,
striking out seven.
The Phillies, meanwhile, built on
their lead, scoring single runs in the fif-
th and sixth innings to move ahead 4-0
with only three innings left before they
could claim their first World Series
triumph.
Smith led off the Philadelphia fifth
with a line drive to center that he stret-
ched into a double. He advanced to
third on a fly ball by Rose, and when
Martin walked Schmidt, Paul Splittorff
came on to pitch for the first time in this
Series.
Smith scored on a broken-bat groun-
der to shortstop by McBride, and Split-
torff got out of the inning when Luzinski
grounded to short.
The Phillies got to Splittorff in the
sixth, however. Maddox led off with a
ground single, but Trillo bounced into a
double play. Bowa followed with a
double to the left-field corner and Boone
drove him home with a line single past
the outstretched glove of Brett.
The Royals didn't break onto the
scoreboard until the eighth inning when
U.L. Washington's sacrifice fly to cen-
ter scored John Wathan from third.
Wathan had opened the inning with a
base on balls. After Jose Cardenal
singled to left, Phillie manager Dallas
Green opted to replace Carlton with
relief ace Tug McGraw.
Frank White flied out to first base for
the first out of the inning. Then, Willie
Wilson drew a wallk to load the bases
and set up Washington's sacrifice. With
two outs, George Brett kept the threat
alive on a deep chopper to second-
baseman Trillo, whose throw Pete Rose
couldn't field cleanly. The bases were
jammed with two down, and Hal
MacRae drew the count to 3-2 before
ending the inning with a grounder to
Trillo.

Ar rnoto
Philadelphia's Steve Carlton bears down during the sixth and final game of this
years World Series. Carlton, the winning pitcher of- the game, held the Royal
hitless through four innings. Tug McGraw relieved Carlton and pitched th

Phillies to their 4-1 win.

delicacy of the situation," said Anton.
"We do anticipate that the conference

Anton was in Chicago for the past tWo
days along with the other conference
faculty representatives to discuss the
Illinois problem and also legislation
that will be considered at the conferen-
ce convention.
