Torre, once known as the fat kid brother of Philadelphia Phillie first baseman Frank Torre, lost considerable weight prior to this season, but gained some new headgear: the National League batting and RBI crowns. "I did try to stay hungry— at the plate," quipped the St. Louis third baseman, whose .363 batting averaged topped the majors. Tight Battle Three players waged a tight battle for second place in the National League batting race, although none posed a serious threat to Torre Atlanta's Ralph Garr nosed out the Chicago Cubs' Glenn Beckert .3416 to .3415, although both were listed at .342 in the r o u n d e d-off figures. Pittsburgh's Roberto Clementc finished fourth at .3409, or .341. Tony Oliva, sidelined late in the season by torn cartilage in his right knee— an injury which he suffered in June but which he played with for over two Nettles of Cleveland and Harmon Killebrew of Minnesota each had 28. Killebrew easily won the RBI crown, however, with 119. The runner-up was Frank Robinson, who was far back with 99. But if anything, 1971 was a banner year for pitchers. The American League producer nine 20-game winners— four o them on one team— while the National League added four more. Baltimore's American League East Division champions became only the second team in major league history to boast four 20-gamc winners, the other being the 1920 Chicago White Sox with Urban Faber, Claude Williams, Dickie Kerr and Ed Pinnl irv VylLullvT.

"One more loss won't affect ur overall performance this ear," said Williams, whose 63- record is the worst in seven ears. "We took Howard out in ic ninth so we wouldn't cn- ourage it. And we called in ur bullpen with two outs and oo<k all the bats out of the acks." It could be felt that the fans vould react before the end of ne game.
