(Journal pbolo by Bruce Bakke) In 'wild' IT-inning game Brye drills single to pace Twins over Oakland 5-4 Cavs down 3-2 to Celtics in NBA playoffs CLEVELAND (AP) - You might expect the Cleveland Cavaliers to be uptight about tonight's National Basketball Association Eastern Conference playoff game against the Boston Celtics. Guess again. Despite being a relatively youthful and inexperienced playoff team and being down 32 in the best-of-seven series, the Cavaliers refuse to give in to nerves. "We just have to go out and play our game," said the youngest of the. Cavaliers, 24- year-old Campy Russell "Boston played as well as they can Sunday. They've thrown everything at us to come up on top." He was referring to Boston's . 9M4 victory Sunday at home, 'their third triumph at Boston in the series. The Cavaliers were in the game until Celtics captain John Havlicek hit a pair of free throws with 11 seconds left. Havlicek provided a psychological lift for Boston as well by playing the final few minutes of Sunday's game despite a painful arch injury. Team officials said it won't be known if the 37-year-old forward will play tonight until just before game time. Cleveland's elder statesman, 14-year-old center Nate Thurmond, said, "With or without Havlicek in there, this team (Cleveland) can win this thing. We've just got to bounce back and play the way we can." The Cavaliers must win tonight to play in Game Seven at Boston Friday night. The winner of this series will go on to play surprising Western Conference champion Phoenix [or the NBA championship. Cleveland Coach Bill Fitch, named Monday as NBA Coach of the Year, said, "It's all very simple, really. We just have to win this one at home and win again in Boston. "When we were down two, our goal was to get even," he added. "That's still our goal. We've been in a similar situation before." Although several Cavaliers felt Sunday's game may have taken too much out of the older, injury riddled Celtics, Boston forward Paul Silas had other ideas. "We didn't play *e first games of this series with the same intensity as we played the Buffalo series," Silas ei- plained. -If we had played the same type of ball against this club, this series would be over now." Silas was referring to Boston's quarter-final victory over Buffalo, which began just like the series with Cleveland. Boston won the first two at home, lost two at Buffalo, then won twice more to close it out in six games. BI.QOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — You may say what you please about baseball, but the grand oW game still produces a lot of surprises. The Oakland A's and Minnesota Twins staged an incredibly unusual production Monday night, and perhaps the most unlikely character available on the setting pulled the final cue card. Minnesota's Steve Brye, drilled an llth inning single propelling the Twins to a wild 54 victory in a game highlighted by 12 stolen bases and 27 runners left on base. "I've had a rough go of it this Journal SPORTS Fergus Falls (Ha.) Journal Tues.,Maylg,1976 season," said Brye, who had managed only 3 hits in 32 at bats prior to his game-winning hit. "I don'I have any confidence at the plate. I guess I just feel like I have to make up for a lot of lost time when 1 play." The hit by Brye came after Rod Carew was walked intentionally with Bob Randall on second base and two outs. Carew, however, didn't accept the walk easily. The perennial American League batting champion waved at two of the outside pitches from A's reliever Jim Todd hoping that maybe he'd be pitched to with two strikes on him. Todd, who was charged with his first career loss to Minnesota and dropped to 2-3 on the year, wasn't lured that inducement and walked Carew. "1 thought it was worth a chance," said Carew, who celebrated his 1,200th major league game with a pair of singles, triple and three stolen ;.bases - . inclwSng-his 14th career theft of home. He is hitting .329 with 14 stolen bases this season. The A's left 16 runners on base during the game and were successful on nine straight base stealing attempts, including four by Don Baylor. "I don't think I've ever had that many bases stolen against me," said Minnesota Manager Gene Mauch, who is in his 16th season as a big league manager. "We did everything right, but didn't win the game," said Oakland Manager Chuck Tan- ner. "It was some kind of night." Tanner was still thinking about an llth inning error by the Twins Dave McKay, who could have ended a two-out A's threat by stepping on third base with a ground ball he fielded near the base. However, McKay threw to first, too late to catch speedy Bert Campaneris. "I didn't have any place left to put anyone then," said winning pitcher Bill Campbell, now 5-1. "I wasn't really bothered by that though. It seen.ed ever- thing else had already happened." Campbell, who pitched three scoreless innings, got Phil Garner on a foul popup leaving a trio of A's runners stranded for the third time in the game. "I've never seen that," said Tanner in reference to McKay's failure to take the force out. "I've never seen a third baseman not step on the bag in that situation." Oakland tied the game 4-4 in the seventh-on Billy Williams ' third homer of the year. It marked the 29th major league park in which the 37-year-old veteran has homered — one short of the major league record held by Cleveland player-manager Frank Robinson. The Twins took a 1-0 lead in thefirstinningon Carew's steal of home, but the A's bunched four singles in the third for a pair of runs and a 2-1 advantage. Claudell Washington's first homer of the year shoved Oakland into a 3-1 lead in the fourth, but Minnesota's Dan Ford, who spent his formative years in th* A's system, blasted his sixth home run of the year to chop the deficit to 5-2. Minnesota moved into a 4-3 lead in the fifth inning. Carew tripled home Larry Hisle, who earlier in the day signed his 1976 contract for just under $60,000, and the hot-hitting Ford drove in his 21st run of the year with a single. Baylor, who has been bothered by a hand injury since coming to the A's from Baltimore as part of the deal that left Reggie Jackson-Ken Holt* man with the Orioles, banged out three hits to raise his average to .200, The clubs close out a two- game series tonight with Stan Bahnsen, 1-0, of the A's scheduled to pitch against Minnesota's Dave Gcltz, 1-2.

"The fans will be looking for miracles, but I'm just going out and play," he said. Manager Earl Weaver said Robinson's benching was "not a permanent thing. I'll let him relax for a while.

Miss Gulhrie, a 36-year-old physicist from N'ew York City, received historic approval Monday to make a qualif ica lion attempt this weekend for the May 30 Indianapolis 500 — a goal she probably never really had in mind when she started racing sports cars 13 years ago.

We know what the goal Foucault. The Royals had is, and we're going to get work" ing up to it," Miss Guthrie said happily after completing the final half of her 100-mile rookie test. "It was all very smooth, no particular problems," Miss Guthrie advised after the run on a cold, wind-blown af lerncon blown a 7-1 kad in the ninth inning as Jeff Burroughs of the Rangers started a six-run rally with a single and later singled home two runs to tie the score.

Dick Si- mon says so, and he hasn't been wrong about anything yet. "But we're reiving on Dick's expertise with chassis settings and suspension adjustments to help sort that out." Miss Guthrie credited Simon, a *4-year-old journeyman who is now her teammate,'with helping get as far as she is. "Dick certainly his done more for me than could be expected or asked from any normal teammate," she said. Simon, who has already qualified UK front-lbe Vollstedt team machine in UK 33-car field, predicted Miss Guthrie could get the car up to qualifying speed if the crew gets enough time to work with the chassis before Uie final weekend of qualifying.

Rolla Vollstedt, her car owner, agreed. "Back when we first got involved in this project, I was pretty sure we would have no ptoblems getting going, and going right on up though OK rootae test," he said. "We'll just have to wait and see what happens now." The four veteran drivers who supervised her test, Gary Bettenhausen, Tom Bigelow, Al Loquasto and Graham McRae, reported Miss Guthrie performed steadily and impressively. "She was good. She was," emphasized Bettenhausen, who has been publicly critical of women entering the Indy car series. "All 1 ask is that women measure up to'Die same standards the men have to meet."
