AROUND THE HORN:
East leaders hit stretch run
TORONTO (AP) - The New
York Yankees come to Toronto
hoping to avoid being buried in the
American League East title chase.
The Yankees, six and one-half
games behind first-place Detroit and
five games behind second-place*
Toronto, have only 23 games
remaining and must make a move
soon to avoid elimination.
Toronto faces a similar uphill
battle, with 14 of its 23 games
against either the Yankees or Tigers.
Although the Yankees have only
a 34-38 road record, they swept the
Jays at Toronto the last time the
clubs met in July.
The first of three games at
Exhibition Stadium is scheduled
tonight, with Toronto starting left-
hander Mike Flanagan, 4-6, against
New York left-hander Ron Guidry,
ON SATURDAY, the Jays
will go with Jimmy Key, 15-6,
against New York's Tommy John,
12-5, in -another battle of left-
landers. On Sunday, right-hander
Rick Rhoden, 16-9, gets the call for
New York against left-hander John
"I said in New York City that the
Yankees aren't going to win it,"
Seattle Mariners manager Dick
Williams said when his club was in
Toronto last weekend. "Detroit and
Toronto are better."
What's the difference?
"Talent, pitching, and better-
balanced ball clubs here and in
Detroit," Williams said. "It all boils
down to pitching and defense because
the clubs can pound the ball."
Toronto manager Jimmy
Williams said he would use a four-
man pitching rotation the rest of the
season, featuring the three lefties
who will face the Yankees as well as
right-hander Jim Clancy, 12-10.
Leaving the rotation is Dave Steib,
13-8, who has lost three of his last
