August 20, 1974 Hope Star Sports Crucial In keeping 2-game Marshall spends an evening beating Cubs By BRUCE LOWITT AP Sports Writer Baseball's premier short man went very, very long. And one of baseball's little men came on very, very big. Mike Marshall, who usually spends an inning or two mopping up victories for Los Angeles, stayed around for six on Monday and single-handedly mopped up the Chicago Cubs as a pitcher, a hitter and, finally, a gambling base runner to give the Dodgers a victory. Joe Morgan mopped up Philadelphia. He crashed two home runs, a three-run blast in the second inning and a grand- slam in the third, as the Reds mangled the Phillies. In Monday's other National League games, the San Francisco Giants beat Pittsburgh, the Atlanta Braves belted St. Louis, the Houston Astros edged New York, and the Montreal Expos defeated San Diego. Marshall's play was crucial in helping the Dodgers snap their six-game losing streak and remain 8 games ahead of the Reds in the West Division. He led off the 12th inning with a single and moved to second on a bunt. Then Rick Auerbach hit a slow roller down the first base line. Catcher Steve Swisher and pitcher Oscar Zamora both went for the ball. While Swisher made the play at first, Marshall kept coming around from third base to cross the unguarded plate. Morgan's first homer gave Cincinnati a lead, then he unloaded his first career grand slammer in nine-run third. "Actually I hit my first grand-slam in old Crosley Field here in Cincinnati as a rookie with the Houston Astros, but Frank Robinson crawled up a fence and robbed me," the 5- foot-7 Morgan grinned. Dave Kingman hit a tie- breaking double in the ninth inning—a liner down the third base line which Pittsburgh Manager Danny Murtaugh insisted was foul—then scored on Ron Bryant's single in the Giants victory over the Pirates. Two-run homers by Hank Aaron and Darrell Evans and a pair of two-run doubles by Marty Perez powered the Braves past St. Louis, wrecking Claude Osteen's debut with the Cardinals. Milt May drove in Houston's —He a courteous driver. tying run with a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, then singled home the winner to beat Tom Seaver and the Mets. Montreal's Barry Foote drove in two runs, one with a tie-breaking homer that triggered as a three-run seventh inning and beat the Padres.

This time, they managed only a single apiece and Allen ended Chicago's only real threat with a double-play grounder in the eighth inning. They stretched their lead in the American League's East Division to five games over idle Cleveland. Elsewhere, the Milwaukee Brewers nipped the Oakland A's, the Minnesota Twins whipped the New York Yankees and the California Angels blanked the Detroit Tigers. Baltimore, Kansas City and Texas also were idle. Lee and Segui combined on a five-hitter. Lee blanked the White Sox on three hits until the eighth when his arm stiffened and he needed help from Segui after Chicago scored its only run on a walk and singles by Pete Varney and Bucky Dent. George Scott hit a second •inning homer and Billy Champion and Tom Murphy made it stand up with a six- hitter. Scott's the homer of the season, a drive that curled around the right-field foul pole, was one of only four Milwaukee hits off Vida Blue. Murphy replaced Champion when Bert Campaneris led off the eighth inning with a single. Bob Darwin slammed a three-run homer off Sam McDowell in the first inning and Joe Decker scattered six hits, inluding Graig Nettles first home run since July 9. Steve Brye opened the game with a double but was thrown out at third on Rod Carew's hunt Larry Hisle followed with a single and Harmon Killebrew grounded out before Darwin powered his 20th home run of the season into the stands. Decker finished with a flourish, retiring the last New York batters after a one-out walk in the sixth. Frank Tanana hurled a six- hitter for his second straight shutout and the Angels edged the Tigers on Windson LJenas bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the ninth inning. Detroit rookie Fred Holdsworth match scoreless innings with Tanana until the California ninth. Oakland Kansas City Texas Chicago Minnesota California West W. L. Pet.

Both coaches admitted their clubs weren't playing Super Bowl-quality ball in Monday night's game. "They didn't do all the things tonight they did in the Super Bowl," said Miami Coach Don Shula, whose team won last January's title confrontation. Our teams didn't either Minnesota boss Bud Grant didn't get his veterans into camp until the player's strike moratorium began last Wednesday, while 14 of 18 Miami veterans reported early. "The Dolphins were sharp," said Grant, adding that his veterans tired in their first-half workout and made execution errors. "Those two reverses they ran were excellent," said Grant of a 18-yard scamper by Mel Baker and six-yard touchdown run by Nat Moore for the final Miami score of the game. We haven't even given reverses to our players yet. Both coaches went to their benches in the second half after fullback Larry Csonka had put the Dolphins ahead. Minnesota, which didn't get past midfield in the first half, responded with a 27-yard field goal by Fred Cox and one-yard touchdown run by Dave Osborn behind the second-half play of rookie quarterback Mike Wells. Wells, who completed seven of eight passes for 16 yards and ran five times for 17 more yards, left the game midway through the final quarter with a sprained right knee. HOLD THAT LINE!
