ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The California Angels captured
the American League West championship yesterday by
beating the Texas Rangers 6-4 behind homers by Fred Lynn,
Reggie Jackson and Bobby Grich.
California will now face the winner of today's Milwaukee-
Baltimore game for the AL championship that starts here
The victory brought California its second division title in its
22-year history and was the first flag of any kind for Manager
Gene Mauch in 23 years as a major-league skipper. No big
league manager had ever gone so long without a title.
Lynn's two-run homer in the fifth inning gave California a
5-4 lead and relievers Dave Goltz and Luis Sanchez made the
margin stand up.
California had begun the day needing either a victory or a
loss by Kansas City to wrap up the division. Kansas City beat
Oakland, 5-4, earlier in the day.
California wrapped up the title as Lamar Johnson groun-
ded back to Sanchez for the final out of the game. Jackson
and Mauch embraced as many of the crowd of 33,405 ran onto
Lynn blasted his 21st homer of the year off Charlie Hough,
16-13, following a walk to Rod Carew. The Rangers had taken

The first-place Atlanta Braves were scheduled to play last
night in San Diego, where an Atlanta loss would create a
Dodgers-Braves tie for first. The regular season ends today
and if a divisional play-off game is necessary it will be in Los
Angeles on Monday.
THE DODGERS banged out 17 hits and recorded their
season-high run total as they eliminated the third place Gian-
ts, who dropped 2 1-2 games behind Atlanta. Bob Welch, 16-11,
pitched five innings of one-hit baseball for the victory and
Dave Stewart finished up, earning his first save.

Strike talks broken off
WASHINGTON (AP) - Talks aimed
at ending the 12-day National Football
League Players strike broke off yester-
day with no resumption in sight. But
the union said if owners came to the
bargaining table, the playes would con-
For the third consecutive day, both
sides emerged from the talks angry and
frustrated, and accusing each other of
responsibility for prolonging the strike.
Jack Donlan, chief negotiator for the
0 Qwners said flatly that he saw no way
talks could continue without an outside
mediator, a concept the players have
consistently refused in the past.
"WE'RE AT A terrible impasse,"
Donlan said "we've asked them every
way we know how - publicly and
privately - for mediation. We obviously
need a third party.'
,This time, union negotiator Ed Gar-
vpy stopped a bit short of refusal. He
*said that if club owners appeared at the
table with their designated negotiators,
the players would consider consenting
to' a mediator.
"We want the owners to meet with
their full committee and our full com-
mittee for two days at a neutral site,"
Garvey said. "If that doesn't work
we'll entertain . a proposal for a

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) -
Renaldo Snipes surprised Trevor Ber-
bick, ranked No. 2 by the World Boxing
Association, and captured a 10-round
unanimous decision yesterday to thrust
himself back into title consideration.
After the bout at the Sands Hotel and
Casino, World Boxing Council cham-
pion Larry Holmes said he would like to
give Snipes, ranked seventh by the
BC, a second shot at the heavyweight
HOLMES, expected to defend his title
against Randall "Tex" Cobb in
November, defeated Snipes in a world
title defense last November.
Snipes of Yonkers, N.Y., abandoned
his circling, jabbing style against Ber-
bick as he waged an inside battle to
score the victory. Judge Richard Murry
scored the fight 7-1-2 for Snipes.
William Kostrub had it 6-3-1, while
referee Arthur Mercante awarded
Snipes the verdict, 45-44 on points after
scoring it even in rounds.
Snipes who weighed 2161/2, took ad-
vantage of Berbick's clowning to score
a first-round knockdown. Berbick of
Miami, dropped his hands, imploring
Snipes to fight. Snipes responded with a
right to the jaw that staggered Berbick,
and followed with a right that floored
him for a count of three.

Snipes in turn nearly knocked Ber-
bick down with two left hooks at the end
of round three.
"I wanted to be the reindeer and run
around the ring," said Snipes, who is
now 23-2-1 with 11 knockouts. "But
Trevor wouldn't let me. He cut off the
ring. It made me fight. I don't like that
toe-to-toe stuff at all."
After the brisk pace slowed in the
middle rounds, Snipes inserted the
moving style into his plan in round
seven. Berbick waited, often answering
a Snipes' right to the head with a body
"My hands were hurt so I couldn't
spar for a coupletdays," said Berbick,
21-3-1 with 17 knockouts. "But I'm not
