BASEBALL ROUNDUP
3 s be t Tigers 5=3

Oakland's Rick Langford hurdled his
thirteenth consecutive complete game
and Tony Armas belted a three-run
home run to propel the A's over the
Tigers 5-3 last night in Tiger Stadium.
Armas' home run came off Tiger
reliever Dave Rozema and provided the
A's with a 5-2 lead that was too much for
the Tigers to overcome.
In that inning, Tiger starter and loser
Bruce Robbins (1-1) allowed a leadoff
double to left fielder Rick Henderson.
After a one-out walk to Jim Essian,
Tiger manager Sparky Anderson sum-
moned Rozema from the bullpen to pit-
ch to Armas. After Rozema missed with
his first three pitches, Armas landed
his fourth one in the upper deck in left
field for his 23rd home run of the year
and fifth off the Tigers.
Langford scattered eight Tiger hits

and allowed single Tiger runs in the
third, fourth and eighth innings in
evening his record at 9-9 for the year.
After Oakland got two runs in the
second inning, the Tigers came back
with one in the third after a lead off
single by Lou Whittaker, a ground out,
and a run scoring base hit by Alan
Trammell. Champ Summers' eighth
home run of the year in the third inning
tied the game at 2-2.
After the A's big fifth inning, Tram-
mell hit a solo homerun to provide the
last of the Tiger scoring off of Langford.
A crowd of 43,677 turned out to watch
the Tigers begin their current
homestand on a.sour note. The 15 game
homestand, which includes games with
Oakland, Seattle, California, and Kan-
sas City, follows a long road trip on
which the Tigers won seven of their last

nine games.
The loss drops the Tigers to 49-40 and
into third place beind the New York
Yankees and Milwaukee Brewers
which beat Baltimore 5-0 last night.
Indians 9, Angels 8
CLEVELAND (AP) - Bo Diaz' two-
out single capped a three-run rally in
the bottom of the ninth that lifted the
Cleveland Indians past the California
Angels 9-8 in the first game of yester-
day's twi-night doubleheader.
Diaz' single off reliever Mark Clera,
6-8, climaxed a two-out rally. Clear
walked Jorge Orta and Mike Hargrove,
Toby Harrah was hit by a pitch to load
the bases and third baseman Carney
Lansford booted Joe Charboneau's

Sandy Wihtol, the third Cleveland
pitcher, picked up his first major
league victory.
The Indians, trailing 8-3, began their
comeback with three runs in the eighth.
California starter Frank Tanana was
chased after Harrah singled a run home

Red Sox 7, Twins 5
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) -
Dwight Evans blasted two home runs
for three RBIs and Tony Perez drove in
two more with a homer and a double as
the Boston Red Sox topped the Min-
nesota Twins 7-5 in the first game of
yesterday's twi-night doubleheader.
Evans gave the Red Sox a 2-0 lead in
the second inning with a two-run homer
off loser Jerry Koosman, 8-9. He also hit
a solo home run in the sixth, his 10th of
the season.

for a perfect 3-for-3 game, helped erase
a 4-2 deficit when he doubled to drive ir
a run in the fourth inning. Carl Yastr-
zemski tied the game with another
double and eventually scored on a
sacrifice fly by Larry Wolfe that put the
Red Sox ahead to stay.
Perez gave Boston a 6-4 lead in the
sixth with his 16th home run of the
season.
Win Remmerswaal, 2-0, pitched 5%

CHICAGO (AP) - Manager Preston
Gomez was fired by the Chicago Cubs
yesterday before completing his first
year at the helm and will be replaced by
Coach Joey Amalfitano.
The announcement was made by
General Manager Bob Kennedy who is
with the club in Los Angeles where the
team opens a 10-game West Coast road
trip.
Gomez was third base coach with the
Los Angeles Dodgers when he was
hired to replace Herman Franks, who
resigned one week before the end of the
1979 season.
The Cubs got off to a fair start under
Gomez, who had previous managerial
stints with San Diego and Houston, but
gradually began slipping in the stan-
dings with injuries sidelining outfielder
Dave Kingman and catcher Barry
Foote.
Currently the Cubs are in last place in
the National League East with a 38-52
record.
Amalfitano also finished out the last
week of the 1979 season when he was
named "interim" manager.

Gomez managed Houston to fourth
place in 1974 but was fired before the
1975 season ended and went back as a
coach with the Dodgers before taking
over the Cub job this season.
Amalfitano played 10 years in the
majors with the Cubs, Giants and
Astros. He coached for the Giants and
San Diego before returning to the Cubs
in 1978. As interim manager for one
week last year, he had a 2-4 record.
FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) - A num-
ber of Los Angeles Rams veterans may
not report to the National Football
League team's training camp Satur-
day, protesting the rich contract signed
by rookie defensive back Johnnie John-
son, the Los Angeles Herald reported
Friday.
"It's a humiliating thing," said guard
Dennis Harrah. "I've played five years
and been in the Pro Bowl twice. I never
complain and do everything I'm told.
And now I find out I'm making less than
half than Johnnie Johnson, who's never
played a down. It's just not right."

It has been reported that Harrah,
defensive end Jack Youngblood, defen-
sive tackle Larry Brooks, linebacker
Jim Youngblood and defensive back
Pat Thomas will not be present when
veterans are supposed to report to the
Rams' Cal State Fullerton training
camp.
They reportedly want their contracts
renegotiated to the point where they are
making at least as much money as
Johnson, a former University of Texas
standout.
Management of the Rams is repor-
tedly refusing to renegotiate.
"I have nothing against Johnnie
Johnson personally," said Harrah. "I
say more power to him that he got such
a contract. But I just can't see where a
rookie defensive back warrants that
kind of money.
"I love football. But I guess there
comes a time in a man's life when he
has to stand up for his principles no
matter how much it costs him. I will
stay out the whole season if things
aren't changed."

U.S. OLYMPIC QUALIFIERS PRAISED
Capital honors would-be Olympian:

WASHINGTON (AP) - America
honors its Olympians this week, even
though none of them are in Moscow for
the Summer Games.
Some 550 athletes, coaches,
managers and officials began arriving
in the nation's this weekend for five
days of entertainment and awards.
THE HIGHLIGHT of the week comes
Wednesday when the athletes, chosen
in Olympic trials although they knew
they were not going to Moscow this
month, receive a special com-
memorative Congressional gold medal
on Capitol Hill.
Following the ceremony at Congress,
the athletes will meet with President

and Mrs. Carter at the White House and
then go to the Kennedy Center for a
night of entertainment.
The five-day celebration for the
athletes includes tours of the
Washington Monument, trips to historic
Mount Vernon, a night at the Ford
Theatre and a parade and ceremony at
the U.S. Marine Barracks.
"IT IS THE United States Olympic
Committee's desire to show our
athletes, coaches and managers that
they are special to the nation," said
USOC executive director F. Don Miller.
"It's our way of honoring the athletes
who qualified as Olympians, but will
not be going to Moscow to represent this

country at the Olympic Games. This,
group of athletes would have done a
magnificent job in the competitions,
and we want them to know how much
the nation thinks of them."
Despite protests from some of the
athletes, Carter refused to soften his
position on sending an American team
to the Games. In his most recent
statement in Merced, Calif., on July 4,
Carter reiterated at a town meeting
that he would have liked the United
States to attend the Olympic Games
now going on in Moscow but "there are
times when our country must stand for
principle and what is right."

Carter also told the town meeting tha
the Olympic athletes will be honored b;
the nation and the president "and I ir
tend to go to sme of the Olympic trial
myself this year to let the athletes kno
that we appreciate their sacrifice in nc
going to the Olympics but we all ay
preciate their willingness ... that we"
not condone aggression by the use c
our athletes. And we won't go."
The U.S. Olympic Committee sai
that the American team consists of 43
athletes from 42 states, except for th$
swimmers who will be selected Aug. 2
There are expected to be 51 members o
the swimming team selected at Irvine
Calif., July 29-Aug. 1.
