SPORTANGLES Pirates Face Orioles in World Series Saturday, Kansas State plays at Kansas University, it j s Vine© G'ibson agiainst Don Fambrough. It is 2-2 against 2-2 on season records. it is Purple Prido against Big Blue. It is civil war. I'm a neutral. Kansas State wiiis heavily favored a year ago, and Kansas won the ganio at Manhattan, 21 to 15. Steve Conlcy ripped 15 yards to score kite in tho third period to give the Jayhawks their six point lead. Kansas was in trouble most of the final quarter, but pulled all sorts of defensive heroics to protect tho margin and win. Kansas State Is favored again Saturday. Kick-off predictions rate the Wildcats about a two touchdown fnv- orltn. I'm picking K-Statc because f thought they played a whale of a lot better against Colorado than did Kansas against Minnesota, both In losing causes. But if Kansas wins, it will not be an upset. Kickoff probably doesn't know that Eddie Sheats, former Hutchinson Community College star, is expected to be back in tho Kansas line-up and that Vincc O'Neil, another former Blue Dragon player and an outstanding ball carrier is eligible for all Big Eight games. He is ineligible for non league contests because of a Big Eight penalty. Vince can break a game wide open. Sheats missed both the games Kansas lost with a leg injury. He c a n wreck a passing attack. But on Kansas-Kansjus Slate games, forget your slide rules, past results, offensive and defensive records and expert opinion. Anything can happen. ft I irh ipan Staff To Pull Up*** T missed four results on The News quiz last week and would have missed five if tho 15 games that belonged on the sheet had been there.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Pirates, described by San Francisco Manager Charlie Fox as "savage with the bat," are off to Baltimore to see what they can do about the dynastic aspirations of the defending world champion Orioles. Exploding for four runs in a sixth inning uprising built on Roberto Clcmcnlc's tie-breaking single and Al Oliver's three- run homer, the Pirates clinched their first National League pennant since I9(i0 by hammering the Giants into submission 9-5 : Wednesday. The victory in the fourth game of the Nl. playoffs clinched the series for the Pirates three games to one and left them the task of challenging the two-time champion Orioles for supremacy—a task Fox feels they can accomplish. Pirates Savage "The Pirates are savage with the bat," Fox said quietly alter the drubbing. "The Orioles bel­ ter have good pitching to handle Pittsburgh. In the champagne-drenched P i I. (. s b II r g h dressing room, Pittsburgh Manager Danny Murtaugh was less specific. But the soft-spoken Irishman was just as emphatic, "We will," he said, "give 'em hell." The Pirates will count on doing that with their bats, But as much as the playoff victory was a result of their big bats, the Pirates could not. have accomplished what they did in game No. 4 without Relievers Bruce Kison and Dave Giusti. Moves Backfired Their pitching, as much as anything, was the big difference in the marathon three- hour game, replete with 21 hits and a couple of strategic moves by Fox that backfired. Kison, a stringbean fi-foot-4, 170-pounder who last year pitched the title clincher for Watcrbury in the Eastern League, and the veteran Giusti shut down the Giants' attack with two-hit relief over the final seven innings. 'Hie score was tied: 5th graf, NL The score was lied 5-5 when the Pirates came to bat in the sixth, the tie having existed since, the second inning when Rich Hebner's three-run homer got Pittsburgh' even after the Giants had moved ahead on home runs by Chris Spcier and Willie McCovcy. Cowbell Clamor With their wives keeping up a constant clinking of cowbells behind home plate, the Pirates got started when second baseman Dave Cash singled with one out. Cash moved to second as Hehner grounded out and then die reliable Clementc stroked an 0-1 pitch to center off San Francisco starter Gaylord Perry that put Pittsburgh ahead (i-5. At that point, Giants' Manager Charlie Fox lifted Perry and replaced him with .Jerry Johnson, the first of two strategic moves that backfired against the (Jiants—for he was to be the victim of Oliver's wrapup homer. Walked Stargell Johnson's second pitch to Stargell got by catcher Dick Dietz for a passed ball that enabled Clementc to race to second. With the count l-l on Stargell, Fox ordered the slugging outfielder intentionally walked despite the fact he was hitlcss in 14 previous trips. That brought up Oliver, who crossed up the strategy by crashing a 2-1 pitch into the right field stands while cow bells clinked and shredded paper rained down from a deliriously happy crowd of 35,487 in Three Rivers Stadium. With Kison pitching smoothly—he had allowed only one hit since taking over for starter Steve Blass. after the second inning—it appeared to be over. But when McCovey singled and Bobby Bonds walked with two out in the seventh, Manager Danny Mur taugh took out his young relicv cr and called for Giusti, the ace of his bullpen. Great Pitching Giusti got out of the jam by striking out Dietz and did not allow a hit the rest oft he way as he posted his third save in the four-game series that left the Giants bridesmaids once again, The Giants, who finished second in the NL West six of the last reven years before winning it this season on the final day, seemed to be in good shape as they came to Pittsburgh with a l-l tie in the series and Juan Marichal and Perry set to pitch. But the Pirates edged Marichal 2-1 Tuesday on Hebner's eighth inning homer and look care of Perry in this one after he appeared to have regained control following heavy early hitting by both clubs. Early Hitting The timely hitting began when the Giants came to bat in the first inning against Blass, who had lost the playoff opener to Perry. Singles by Tito Fuentes and McCovey following an error by Cash got the first run across, Cash immediately opened the Pirates' first with a single. Ilcbuer followed with a double and then Clementc drove in both with a single. But Perry pitched out of further trouble. The Giants came back in the second lo lie it quickly with Spcier hit a 1-2 pitch over the left field wall for his homer. One out later, Henderson singled and Fuentes not credit for a single when Stargell and Oliver let his fly fall between them. Giants Ahead 5-2 A f t c r Mays flicd out, McCovey ripped the first pilch to him into the right, field seats for his second homer of the playoffs and a 5-2 lead. It. was short lived, however, as llebuer, Die hero of Tuesday's game, smacked an 0-2 pitch over the right field fence following singles by Manny Sanguillen and pinch hitter Bill Mazeroski. That, tied the score and it. was to stay that way until the big sixth inning, although a disputed play in the third inning probably cost the Pirates a run. With one out in the inning, Oliver reached first when Perry's third strike was a wild pitch that got by Dietz. Bob Robertson then shot a grounder to third and Jim Hart fired to Tito Fuentes at second to get the force on Oliver. IAWA Argument The throw appeared to pull Fuentes off the base, but umpire David Davidson signalled out. Murtaugh argued briefly, but to no avail. Catcher Manny Sanguillen then walked and Jack Hernandez beat out a hit toward third. But, with 1,1 K * bases loaded, Murtaugh let Kison hit for himself, and the pitcher grounded out to first. The Pirates had to wait until the sixth to break through against Perry, who gave up 10 hits in the 5 2-3 innings he worked. Blass, meanwhile, surrendered eight hits in the two innings he worked. However, he got off the hook with the sixth inning explosion that led to the end-of-the-game souvenir foray by Pirate fans who poured out on to the field after Giusti got Bonds on a grounder to third for the final out.

Willie Mays Makes Plans For Yet Another Season PITTSBURGH (AP) - Willie Mays threw up his hands and acted as if his feelings had been wounded. Someone had just asked the 40 -year-old outfielder of the San Francisco Giants if he intended to play next season. "Why? Do 1 look that bad that you think 1 would quit?" Mays retorted. "I think 1 had a terrific season," said Mays, who hit .271 with 18 home runs and <il runs batted in during 136 games as the Giants won the National licague West title. "I would have had a belter season if I hadn't played so much," said Mays, completing the first year of a two-year contract. Kept Busy Mays pointed out that be cause of injuries to first base man Willie McCovcy and others he had to play first base and the outfield. Did that mean that the guy closest to Babe Ruth's all-time home run record of 7M—Mays has (546— would play less in 1972? "Kvery season presents itself different," he replied, "It de pends on how the club goes. If I have to play, I'll play." Giants' Manager Charlie Fox said he planned a new program for Mays. "We have Don Kingman now," said Fox, referring to the rookie outfielder-first base man who hit .2711 in 41 games after being brought up from the Texas League. "That means Willie can play less and we can keep him fresh." In Good Shape Fox said that with tlie exception of a little tightening of the throwing arm, Mays is in excellent physical condition. "Me has gained only four pounds in 20 years," said Fox. "You've seen him run.

"I have to take It u |K >n myself to do things that are good for the club. "I don't want to brag but most of the time when I'm on base we score.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Jerry Williams' bitter and disappointed over his firing Wednesday as head coach oi' the Pliiladelphia Kagles, called this owner of tlie National Foot-, ball lx>aguo team "a man without courage and character."

Khayat, defensive line coach of the Kagles played tackle on their HKH) championship team, was riajnod to succeed Williams for the remainder of the season. Sharp Language "Unfortunately I was working for a man who is without courage and character," Williams said in a statement;. "I was offered a sizeable sum of money to resign, but to accc|>t a bribe of that nature is to lower myself to his depths." Williams, 47, in his third year witli tho Kagles hefwd the news at a meeting with Tose and General Manager Pete Retzlaff, whose own career is tied closely with Williams' performance. "It i.s not a happy occurrence to release a coach at the liegin- ning of the season," Tose said, "But actually it Is not tlie beginning of tho season lx:causc Williams has been in the job for nearly 2Vi years," Playern Back Williams The Kaglo players, in a statement led by linebacker Ron Porter said of the firing that it wa« "a grava injustice that one man must bear the brunt of an entire organization's shortcomings." "We as players have failed Coach Williams in our performance on the field and must take responsibility for what has happened," the statement said, "I'm a fan," Tose said. "All 1 know is what the fans have seen. And they have said we haven't done the job we are capable of doing. Wo just needed a change. It was an accumiihi- tion of things. The huge lopsided scores, tlte manner of tin: defeats." Tose said he had asked Retzlaff li» suggest lo Williams that it might he letter for /ill concerned if Williams resign. He said he realized that this would hurt Williams livelihood arid that if he resigned "I said he (Retzlaff) could give him another year's salary. I didn't want to hurt Jerry." Williams is paid al>out $40,000 a year. Khayat, who wan lold of the decision before practice was to get underway, said he would make every effort to win Sunday's game against Minnesota. Need to Win "What we need is to win a game;," he said, "Wlien we do tliat it will restore our confidence." The Kagles under Williams were 7-22-2, Including a :M(M record last year and three humiliating defeats In their first three games this year jn which they scored only once from scrimmage. "I had no inkling of this," Williams said. "I know that there wen; rumors that, I might he going but those always occur when you have a had season," In Williams' case, it was more than rumors. Ifud Warning 'Urn had said publicly prior to the final game of the season last year against Pittsburgh that unless the Fugles won that game handily Imth Williams and Kclxlaff would lie through.
