It's been a most .productive week for Phil Regan, who used to worry about his share in .baseball's pension plan and now .thinks about a World Series share instead. .Regan won his third game in 'six days Monday night when 'Los Angeles rallied for four runs in fiie ninth inning on horn- .ers by John Roseboro and Jim Gilliam and defeated Pittsburgh *1. ' .. ..The victory, kept the Dodgers 'in first place in the National League, three percentage points in front of San Francisco and a full game up on the Pirates, : who lost their fourth straight. "...It raised Regan's season's "record to 10-1. The veteran Bright-tender, who virtually .dealt bimself to the Dodgers 'last fall, has saved nine games *nd has an earned run average ",pf:1.52, best on the pitching-nch 'ibs Angeles staff. * * .--• A year ago Regan was toiling .with Detroit's International .League'farm team at Syracuse, hoping to pitch his way back the majors.

"I was really disappointed," Hegan recalled. "I thought seriously of going home. But I remembered I only needed 14 days to complete five years, so I reported to Syracuse." It was while pitching there that Regan learned the Dodgers wfere interested in him. "1 called Jim Campbell (Detroit's •general manager) and asked to be traded," . The deal was made last November, just" 30-minutes before the inter-league deadline, with the Dodgers .swapping utility infieider Dick Tracewski for Regan. .It wasn't the. biggest bargain ever. The Indians got only $2' for Manhattan Island. . *....* * Esewhere, ' San Francisco kept pace with the Dodgers by ..downing.-New York 4-2, Phila ; iielphia edged Houston 6-5 in 1( i innings and Cincinnati toppec i St. Louis 3-2.
