Mattingly's clutch hitting nets AL batting NEW YORK (ITPTi hii eves Sunday nornlng, Don MatUngly knew nothing could go wrong. Everything was going to wind up perfect lor him. Or at least, near perfect. He was going to bet winner. Even if he lost. The way things turned out for the left-handed hitting first baseman who became the first New York Yankee player to win the American League batting title since Mickey Mantle in 1956, he was absolutely right. He wasn't quite perfect. Only Mike Witt of the Angels was in that 1-0 wrap-up perfecto he pitched against the Rangers at Arlington, Texas. But Mattingly was near perfect with four hits in five at-bats, finishing with a .343 figure that was three points better than teammate Dave Winfield's .340 in their final day showdown for the batting crown. "To me, there was no winner or loser," said MatUngly, sitting up on a table in the Yankee clubhouse following a 9-2 win over the AL East champion Tigers with his hair tousled, shoe polish under his eyes and a day's growth of beard. "I woke up this morning, my wife gave me a big smile and said, i love you.' That to me was everything." MatUngly had two doubles and a pair of singles while the best Winfield could do was beat out a high Bowling MONDAY WASHOUTS Welcome Lanes High teem game Miller Real Estate 678.

The Yankees put the game away early when they jumped on Randy O'Neal, Detroit's 24-year-old rookie right-hander, for three quick runs in the first inning, but few among the 30,602 at Yankee Stadium had too much interest in the game. The vast majority had come to see the showdown for the batting Utle between the 33-year-old Winfield, who started the contest hitting .341, and the 10 years younger MatUngly, who was at .339. MatUngly was crowd favorite. Maybe because he s part of the New Breed and earning less than one-tenth of Winfield's two mil a year. Hitting third, one spot in front of Winfield, he gave clear evidence of things to come when he singled to left his first time up in the first inning and doubled to right his second time up in the third while Winfield grounded into a forceout in the first inning and was walked by O'Neal in the third. MatUngly boosted his average to .3428 when he connected for his second double down the right field line in the fourth they were carrying out both averages to four places now each time they hit and after Winfield got his infield hit in the fourth he was at .3416. In the fifth, MatUngly made the last out of the Scoreboard Pittsburgh 38, Cincinnati 17 Sunday, Oct. 7 (All Timet EDT) Denver at Detroit, 1 p.m. Miami at Pittsburgh, 1 p.m. Minnesota at Tampa Bay, 1 p.m. N.Y.

Winfield had to get a hit to stay in contention when he came up in the sixth, but he skied to Lemon and went to .3409. MatUngly collected his final hit of the day, a single off rookie second baseman Scotty Earl's glove In the eighth, and that gave him more than he needed. After which, Winfield forced him at second on a ground ball to third. Winfield, standing on first, sought to shake Mattingly's hand as the Yankee sophomore headed across the foul line for the dugout, but MatUngly failed to notice. They told him about it when he got to the dugout and he bolted up the steps again, waved to the cheering crowd and shook hands with Winfield, who came out for a pinch-runner. Winfield dressed in a hurry and left the park before the writers could get to him. That was too bad because he never got to hear some, of the nice things Mattingly had to say about him. "He congratulated me," Mattingly said upon being questioned what Winfield had to say to him when they shook hands in the eighth. "I've got to say Dave is a great person. I got to know Dave a little more, especially these last few weeks, and I can't say enough about him."

Mattingly never thought It would come down to what It did on the last day. "Before that last Ume I went up to hit, they told me if I don't get a hit and Dave got a hit, he could win by two-thousandths of a point, but I felt no matter what happened there couldn't be a loser," Mattingly said. "Again, Dave has handled the whole thing so well. I never thought it would come down to the last at bat. It's so exciting, so draining." Over in the visitors' dugout, the Tigers were able to enjoy the whole thing despite the fact they were getting waxed because they're on their way to open the AL playoffs with the Royals in Kansas City Tuesday. "If you go out and get four hits under the gun like Mattingly did, you deserve It," declared Tiger manager Sparky Anderson. "I remember Pete Rose doing the same thing one year. He had to get four hits on the last day of the season to beat Matty Alou for the batting title and he did. Alou got three himself." Anderson was talking about the 1968 season when Rose won the NL crown with .335. "MatUngly reminds me of myself as a hitter." dead-panned the Tiger manager who played second base one year for the Phillies. " ited Press International (Head-to-head standings of competing teams) 1.

What you need is a room heater that will allow you to heat that room, and control its temperature, independent of the rest of your heating system. If you're going to add a room heater, you should choose one that uses the most economical kind of fuel. In this area, the choice is clearly natural gas. Today, gas is significantly more economical than the alternatives. And current forecasts indicate that gas will hold its competitive edge for many years to come. Gas is also the obvious choice, to heat a new room you add to your home. Whether you install a separate room heater, or run new ductwork off your furnace, gas heat will be the most economical way to heat your room addition. If you've got a cold room, or are planning a room addition, heat it with gas. It's the best way to make yourself comfortable, and keep your heating costs down.
