CITY F-2Fri.,Aug.l7,'79 0 The Arizona Republic Combination of Rice, Lynn unmatched in baseball Associated Press Maris didn't hit for a high average. He competed as a rookie. Rice won the award in 1978, with the A rin Fred Lynn BOSTON Baseball's pennant races along with achievements by a pair of future Hall of Famers are perhaps overshadowing a remarkable statistical duel in Boston. The limelight was on Lou Brock when the St. Louis veteran chased his 3,000th hit. And Red Sox star Carl Yastrzemski also is closing in on that plateau to go with the milestone of his 400th home run last month. But in the heart of the Boston batting order is a competition that may eventually go down in baseball history. Fred Lynn and Jim Rice, Red Sox outfielders, both are chasing American league championships in batting average, home runs and runs batted in. They are, in fact, making runs at the Triple Crown. Not since Hank Aaron and Eddie Mathews of the old Milwaukee Braves has a team boasted a comparable pair of sluggers from opposite sides of the plate. Not since Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris the M&M Boys of the New York Yankees has one team had a pair of hitters who could batter opponents with such a storm of homers. with Mantle in slugging categories. But Rice and Lynn are locked in a low-protiie struggle tnat suggests the Triple Crown is a realistic goal for both players. Going into Thursday night's games, the Red Sox's "Gold Dust Twins" rode hitting streaks to new statistical heights. Lynn led the AL in average (.341) and home runs (34) and was six behind California's Don Baylor in RBI (107-101). And Rice was right behind Lynn in every category, while leading in total bases. The Lynn-Rice competition is not new. And it probably will continue for years in Boston. The two stars arrived in the major leagues at the same time, after playing together in the minors. Their statistics, along with their personalities, have been compared relentlessly. Rice is the quiet, occasionally surly strongman from the Deep South. Lynn is the picture-perfect athlete from the University of Southern California whose quotability this year is in marked contrast to his teammate. Lynn was the AL's Most Valuable Player in 1975 best slugging statistics in 4U years. The right-handed Rice has near-legendary strength. His shots travel far over Fenway Park's left-field wall. Lynn, a lefty, faces distant right-field home run territory and a reputation a history, in fact of being a fragile player who tires in the stretch. He slugged three home runs in one memorable game June 18, 1975 in Detroit. But his 34 homers so far are more than his best seasonal production of 22 in 1978. A winter exercise program added bulk to Lynn's upper body, and instead of tiring in August, he has unleashed a barrage of cannon shots as mighty as those by Rice. Skeptics expecting Lynn to wilt have waited in vain. How the Triple Crown battle will end is uncertain. What's not is that the stakes are high. Measure them in dollars. Rice became a millionaire last winter, and Lynn is ready to begin negotiations for his contract. Boston fans should get ready for a ticket price increase at Fenway. X Jim Rice Cruz sparks KC past Orioles Republic Sports Wires BALTIMORE Todd Cruz drove In two Kansas City runs with a sacrifice fly and a homer, and Baltimore mistakes led to two more runs as the Royals defeated the Orioles, 4-2, Thursday. Cruz, a .205 hitter with nine previous RBI this season, hit a sacrifice fly in the second inning and lined his second homer of the season in the sixth off ..Dennis Martinez (14-9). The Royals ended a three-game losing streak and pulled to within 4 games of first-place California in the American League West behind the four-hit pitching of Paul Splittorff (12-12). Watson, Lynn power Red Sox BOSTON Bob Watson drove in four runs with his 150th career homer and a single, and American League leader Fred Lynn belted his 35th home run as the Boston Red Sox beat the Chicago White Sox, 7-5. Watson hit a two-run shot, his 11th of the season, to tie the game at 4-4 in the fourth inning. In the fifth, he singled home the lead runs off Mike Proly (1-5). Lynn slammed a solo home run into the right-field bleachers in the second, and Butch Hobson hit his 21st homer of the vear in the sixth, civine Brewers continue Rangers' skid Boston 17 homers in tne last six fiames Major league standings Baseball update Kroc sorry for 'slip' American League National League Republic Sports Wires Baltimore Bolton New Vo'S Detroit Cevtand lO'OOlo Oi'tofnii Minnesota kansasO'v Tfll o Seetne H SO M M Pet. ca 161 Sit V II .31, 41 ll 14 62 61 M 12 WEST U S4 63 S6 62 SI 60 61 S3 6) SO II 36 IS ? 31 SS4 S2 SI7 4to 442 111 a i3 i; 3 66 4 4 t'j 1 lit 4-1 1 141 171 21 MILWAUKEE Gorman Thomas doubled home two runs in a three-run Milwaukee first inning, and Lary Sorensen scattered eight hits to lead the Brewers to a 4-1 victory over the slumping Texas Rangers.

SAN DIEGO Owner Ray Kroc of ' the San Diego Padres said Thursday that it was nothing more than "a slip of the tongue" and "pure ignorance" on his part for saying he would like to obtain Graig Nettles and Joe Morgan in this winter's free-agent draft. He promised not to select either one if they become available. Kroc, a 76-year-old multimillionaire, said he was taking "full responsibility" for the mistake he made Tuesday by publicly saying he would like to get Nettles and Morgan for the Padres. "I've had a guilty feeling ever since this thing came about," Kroc revealed. "I want to take full responsibility for my slip of the tongue. I want to slap my own wrist for something I said in pure ignorance. Certainly there was no intention on my part to do anything underhanded. I'm a guy of integrity, and I don't want to spoil my reputation." Rudi on disabled list ANAHEIM, Calif. - California Angels' outfielder Joe Rudi has been knocked out of action for at least three weeks by an injury to the Achilles' tendon in his right leg, the American League club announced. Rudi, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list, is hitting .242 with 11 homers and 61 runs batted in this year. He injured the leg running out an infield hit in Wednesday night's 6-1 loss to Detroit. Holtzman sidelined CHICAGO - The Chicago Cubs placed pitcher Ken Holtzman on the 21-day disabled list and called up George Riley, a 22-year-old left-handed pitcher from Wichita of the American Association. Holtzman, 33, has a 6-9 record but is troubled by a strain in his lower back. Riley was 3-7 at Wichita but has been perfect in his last four relief appearances.

Gene Tenace hit a two-run homer in the first inning off Pirate starter Bruce Kison. However, the Pirates scored an unearned run in the bottom of the first off Gaylord Perry (10-10), who also yielded the three Pirate runs in the fourth. Willie Stargell opened the Pirate fourth with a single, took second on a single by Bill Madlock and scored on a single by Ed Ott. After Phil Garner was walked intentionally to load the bases, Moreno bounced a two-run single to left. Pittsburgh extended its lead to 5-2 in the fifth when Dave Parker singled, stole second, took third on a groundout and scored on a single by John Milner. Kison (8-6) allowed a run-scoring, pinch-hit double by Gene Richards in the sixth. Jay Johnstone tripled home another Padres run in the seventh off reliever Enrique Romo. But Romo checked San Diego over the last two innings for his fourth save. Martin, Cubs shell Giants, 14-4 CHICAGO Jerry Martin drove in four runs with his 16th home run, a double and a single, leading an extra-base hit barrage which carried the Chicago Cubs to a a 14-4 victory over the San Francisco Giants. Eleven of Chicago's 17 hits were for extra bases, including nine doubles in support of Lynn Mc-Glothen (10-8). Bob Knepper (8-8) took the loss. The Cubs broke open the game with eight runs in the seventh inning, which included doubles by Scot Thompson, Barry Foote and McGlothen and a two-run single by Dave Kingman. Kingman started the attack with a double in the second inning and scored on a triple by Steve Ontiveros. Ontiveros then scored on a double by Martin for a 2-0 lead. Doubles by Ivan DeJesus and Bill Buckner gave the Cubs a run in the third, and a walk, a double by Foote and a single by Steve Dillard added a run in the fourth. Martin homered leading off the sixth. Trevino lifts Mets past Braves ATLANTA Alex Trevino singled to deliver the tie-breaking run, and Joel Youngblood added a two-run double as the New York Mets scored five runs in the eighth inning and downed the Atlanta Braves, 6-3. Doug Flynn opened the inning with a double but was thrown out at third when pinch hitter Gil Flores bunted back to the mound. Frank Taveras followed with a bunt single, then Trevino scored Flores with his hit to center. Taveras also scored on the play when outfielder Barry Bonnell's throw was wild. Lee Mazzilli walked, and John Stearns reached on a fielder's choice when pitcher Phil Niekro (15-16) fielded his bunt and threw too late to get Trevino at the plate. Youngblood's two-run double followed. Dodgers edge Cardinals in 15th ST. LOUIS Steve Garvey drove a two-run single up the middle with two out in the 15th inning, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a 4-2 vic tory over the St. Louis Cardinals for a sweep of their three-game series. Garvey's hit came off Cardinals right-hander George Frazier (2-3), who came on at the start of the inning. Bobby Castillo (1-0) recorded his first major-league victory. Los Angeles tied the game in the eighth when Bill Russell singled home Dave Lopes, who had walked and stolen his 33rd base. In the 15th, Derrel Thomas singled with one out, Lopes walked and Russell grounded out to move the runners over preceding Garvey's hit.
