"Little Guys" Give Athletics Big Boost By JIM VAN VALKENBURG Associated Press Sports Writer KANSAS CITY (AP)—Manager Eddie Lopat is hopeful Kansas City's amazing start isn't a mirage because "little guys like Wayne Causey" have carried the club into first place with the top hitters slumping. "The players are saying 'wait 'till the big guys start hitting' and they are gaining confidence at the same time by realizing they did it without the big guys hitting," Lopat said. "One player or one group keeps picking us up when another lets down. If this continues and the pitching holds up, we'll do much better than I expected. The first division would be possible." Lopat was enthusiastic about the performance of Orlando Pena, crafty righthander who stopped Cleveland on four hits Wednesday night, 11-3, for his fourth straight victory without a defeat. Causey has slammed 21 hits in 10 games since he came off the bench to replace injured Dick Houser at shortstop April 21. Causey, a former $30,000 Baltimore bonus baby, is leading the American League with a hefty . .420 average. "I'm not doing anything new or different at the plate," Causey said. "But hitting those left- handers so well gives you confidence. "I've never hit the lefties before—that's been my big stum bling block." said Causey, a left- handed hitter with a .240 lifetime average. Norm Siebern, Jerry Lumpe and Manny Jimenez, all over .300 last year, have been around .200 ir below. Chuck Essegian, a re- urted strong spring hitter ob- ained from Cleveland in a trade, limbed over .200 with three hits Vednesday night. Ed Charles and Gino Cimoli lave hit over .300 most of the ivay and both have provided many k«y hits. The club has hit Beaiity Queen With Grandkids ST. JOSEPH, Mo.

"Pitching holds the key," he said. "And I think it will hold up" Supposedly weak against left- handed pitching, the A's have won six, lost only one against lefties. They have a 6-1 record in one- run games.
