Pirates, Orioles Win Giants-Pirates SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-Bob Robertson rocketed three home runs and Pittsburgh clawed six San Francisco pitchers for 15 hits Sunday, ripping the Giants 9-4 and squaring the National League championship playoff series at one game apiece. The third game of the playoff is scheduled for Tuesday in Pittsburgh, Robertson, who also doubled, drove in five runs as Pirate power asserted itself against the second line Giant pitchers. The red-haired first baseman was ending a month-long dry spell. He slugged 26 homers during the regular season, but had not connected since August 25. The Giants, riding an emotional high after Saturday's opening game victory, nicked Pirate starter Dock Ellis for a run in the first on Willie Mays' RBI double. But Ellis escaped !further damage, pitching his jway out of a bases-loaded, one- out jam. In the second, Pittsburgh tied it on Robertson's double and a single by Manny Sanguillen, but hits by Chris Speier and Ken Henderson restored the Giants' edge in the bottom half of the inning. It stayed 2-1 until the fourth when Robertson, leading off lofted a long fly to right field. Dave Kingman, playing in place of injured Bobby Bonds reached over the eight foot-high fence but the ball glanced out of his glove for a home run, tying the score. Then the Pirates took the lead when Manny Sanguillen singled, stole second and rode home on Jackie Hernandez hit. Pittsburgh added another run in the fifth when Gene Clines who had only one home run during the regular season, socked a shot over the left field wall to make it 4-2. 49ers Clout Eagles, 31-3 First downs Rushes-Yards Passing yardacie Return yardage Passes Punts Fumbles lost Yards penalized 49ers Eagles 21 17 31-702 28-89 308 172 34 12 1S-30-0 17-30-0 3-4 640 7 2 60 37 PITTSBURGH SAN FRANCISCO ab r h bl ab r b bi Cash 2b 5 13 0 Hendersn If 3 0 11 Clines cf 3 111 Fuentes 2b 5 2 2 0 AOIIver cf 1110 Mays cf 5 12 3 Clemente rf 5 13 1 McCovey lb 3 0)0 Stargell If 5 0 0 0 Rosario pr 0 0 0 0 BRobrtsn lb 5 4 4 5 Kingman rf 4 0 10 Sanguilln c 5 12 1 Dietz c 4 0 0 0 Pagan 3b 1 0 0 0 Gallagher 3b 4 o 0 0 Hebner 3b 3 0 0 0 Speier ss 3 12 0 JHerndz ss 4 0 11 Cumbrlnd p 0 0 0 0 Ellis p 3 0 0 0 Barr p d 00 0 BMiller p 1 0 0 0 McMahon p 0 0 0 0 Giusli p 0 0 0 0 Duffy ph 10 0 0 Carrthers p 0 0 0 0 Bryant p Hart ph Orioles-A's BALTIMORE (AP) - Paul Blair's two-run double in the seventh inning put the finishing touches on a four-run Baltimore uprising and Vida Blue's attempt to still the Orioles' bats as the defending world champions belted the Oakland A's 5-3 Sunday in the opening game of the American League playoffs. Blue, the moody, silent left­ hander whose confidence had been questioned prior to the opener, breezed into the seventh inning with a three-hitter and a 3-1 lead, raising the spec ter of the Orioles' first defeat in playoff history. But the world champions, winners of all six of their previous playoff games over two seasons, struck decisively in their half of the seventh and took a 1-0 lead in the best-of- five series to determine the American League representatives in the World Series. Frank Robinson, who had struck out twice previously, opened the Baltimore seventh with a walk, and one out later Brooks Robinson singled him to second. But Blue bore down and got ''Andy Etchebarren for the second out on a fly to right that enabled Frank Robinson to move to third.
