Bosox edge

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -
Dave Henderson, whose two-run
homer capped a four-run rally in the
ninth inning that kept Boston alive,
hit a sacrifice fly in the 11th inning
yesterday that gave the Red Sox a
7-6 victory over the California
Angels in Game 5 of the American
League playoffs.
The Red Sox, who several times
were perilously close to
elimination, instead narrowed
California's lead to 3-2 in the best-
of-seven series. Game 6 is
scheduled Tuesday night in Boston.
H E N D E R S O N' S heroics,
which came after his defensive
miscue on Bobby Grich's freak
home run had put California ahead
in the sixth, enabled Boston to
avoid being swept in three games at
Anaheim Stadium after splitting the
first two games at Fenway Park.
Don Baylor and Henderson hit
two-run as the Red Sox overcame a
5-2 deficit in the ninth, and the
same two players triggered the Red
Sox victory in the 11th.
Baylor, leading off the 11th, was
hit by a pitch from Donnie Moore.
It was the 36th time Baylor was hit
this year and the 228th time for the
AL leader in that department.
DWIGHT EVANS singled
Baylor to second and Rich
Gedman's fourth hit of the game, a
bunt single, loaded the bases.

Henderson followed with his
sacrifice fly to medium-deep center.
The victory went to Steve
Crawford, who pitched out of a
bases-loaded jam with one out in
the ninth and also worked the 10th.
Calvin Schiraldi, tagged with
Boston's heart-breaking loss in
Game 4, worked a perfect 11th for
the save.
THE ANGELS battled back
against three Boston relievers to tie
it 6-6 in the bottom of the ninth.
Trailing 6-5, Bob Boone led off
with a single against Bob Stanley.
Boone, 3-for-3 Sunday and 9-for-17
in the series, was replaced by pinch-
runner Ruppert Jones, who took
second on a sacrifice fly by Gary
Pettis.
Joe Sambito relieved Stanley,
and Wilfong grounded his first pitch
just beyond the reach of second
baseman Marty Barrett. Jones was
running all the way and slid home
safely, just ahead of right fielder
Evans' strong throw to Gedman.
DICK SCHOFIELD then
greeted Crawford with a single that

Angel
sent Wilfong to third, and Brian
Downing was intentionally walked
to load the bases.
But with the winning run 90 feet
from home plate and the outfield
drawn in, Crawford managed to get
out of it by retiring Doug DeCinces
on a shallow fly to right and after
going 2-0 on Grich, got him on a
soft liner back to the mound.
Earlier, it appeared Henderson,
normally a late-inning defensive
replacement who had entered the
game in the fifth inning to replace
the injured Tony Armas in center
field, was the goat.
THE RED SOX, who had
blown a three-run lead in the ninth
inning Saturday night in a stunning
game won by Grich's RBI single in
the 11th, took a 2-1 lead into the
sixth behind Bruce Hurst.
With two outs, DeCinces
doubled before Hurst worked a 1-2
count on Grich, who had struck out
in his previous two at-bats. This
time, Grich hit a long drive that
Henderson seemed to have within
range.

Henderson leaped just short of
the fence and got his glove on the
ball, but his momentum carried his
glove above the wall and the impact
knocked the ball loose and over the
fence for a two-run homer.
Mike Witt, who won game 1,
had cruised into the ninth inning
with a 5-2 lead. But with the crowd
of 64,223 screaming for the Angels
to wrap up their first AL pennant,
Bill Buckner opened the inning
with a single.
One out later, Baylor homered
over the left field fence and cut the
deficit to 5-4. Witt retired Dwight
Evans on a popup, and then was
relieved by left-hander Gary Lucas.
But Lucas hit Gedman with a pitch,
and relief ace Donnie Moore was
summoned.
Henderson fouled off a 2-2 pitch
before launching a drive over the
left-field fence. Henderson danced
down the first-base line and his
teammates streamed onto the field
to greet him while the crowd sat in
shocked silence.

his six pass receptions. Washington
was also flagged for interference on
Walker to position the Cowboys
for a field goal.
The Redskins, burdened by three
missed field goals, a lost fumble
and an interception, couldn't get
their offense untracked.
