Section 4 Chicago Tribune. Friday, July 23, 1976 Sox beat Tigers 9-3, then fall 5-1 stedbdted radial wlfofewal say wouldn't have gone out there for the seventh." But it was never close. Frank Mac-Cormack was chased in the second inning, trailing 4-0, largely due to hitting Jorge Oi1a and walking Pat Kelly ahead of Johnson's first-inning single, then serving Stein's double, a pair of walks, and a wild pitch ahead of Wayne N'ord-hagen's two-run single in the second. Features of Chicago's four-run sixth against Jim Crawford and Steve Grilli were a long double by newcomer Nord-hagen, another by Johnson, and Stein's home run. Odom, insisting he needs to start to be sharp, said he didn't tire but agreed that he lost some of his sharpness.

For the onetime Oakland star, who still has good words for Charlie Finley, by the way, this was only the fourth big league triumph in three years while serving the A's, Indians, Braves, and now the Sox. As for Finley, whom he intends to call one of these days, Odom said. "He never gave me any trouble. I think he's a great guy. I guess it's 'cuz he's outspoken like I am." game two, is 14-for-23.

'WHEN' I CAME over here they told me Stein can't play every day. I don't think they ever tried to find out. All they told me about Lamar is that he might not be ready. That's why we kept Bob Oliver around for awhile. "Maybe Lamar is readier than we think." Odom looked ready Thursday night, too for the first six innings anyway.

Up until the seventh he had a shutout and at one stretch had retired nine Tigers in a row. He got out of one quick jam when Rusty Staub was thrown out at the plale trying to take three bases on Willie Morton's first-inning double. From then until Alex Johnson, Aurelio Rodriguez, and Ben Ogilvie bombed him out with extra base hits in the seventh, Odom was in full command. "HE'S GOT A variety of pitches, and when he has control of them he can be pretty tough," remarked Richards. "Looks like he lost some zip off his fast ball later.

If it'd been a closer game, he sion in a row 5-1. as two dazzling catches by Rusty Staub helped prevent the Sox from starting anything early. And later, after Ray Bare had carried his puzzling mastery over the Sox through seven shutout innings, John Hiller bagged his eighth save by stranding three runners in the Sox eighth. Jason Thompson's three hits, including a two-run homer, led the Tigers' 13-hit assault on Gossage. who salvaged a complete game and surely did the overtaxed Sox mound staff a service.

Odom needed relief from Pete Vukovich in the opener. Having settled back a half game into filth place, the Sox don't have to play another double-header until Sunday, at the end of a four-game series starting Friday night against the Minnesota Twins. Whether or not right-handed pitching finally will chase Stein and Johnson is up to Manager Paul Richards, of course. Johnson added two hits in the second game Thursday night and has nine hits in his last 17 trips; Stein, blanked in By Richard Dozer BILL STEIN and Lamar Johnson, the two part-timers who infiltrated the res-ular White Sox playing ranks a week ago, led another assault on the Detroit Tigers in the first game of a Comiskey l'ark double-header Thursday night. But after Die Sox had won three in a row from the Timers in the busiest 48 hours of baseball cither club had experienced this year, Detroit finally arose and added another chapter in the mystery of Rich Gossagc.

Stein doubled and launched his third home run of the week while scoring twice and driving in two runs toward 9-3 victory in John "Blue Moon" Oriom's first start for the White Sox. Johnson had two singles and a double, also three RBI in the same game, and in a week's time these two victims oi the platoon obsession have knocked in 20 runs. BUT NEITHKR they nor anyone else produced anything of value for Gossage in the second game until it was too late. Gossage dropped his sixth deci FOR WrilTEWALL SiZE bR 73-1 PLUS F.E.T.

By Bob Verdi Cnicaso Tribune Press Sen-ice ST. LOUIS It isn't that the Cubs don't get together enough off the field, it's that they don't get together enough on the field. But Thursday night, in a rare departure from their disjointed ways, Wrigley's traveling circus did both to collect an 8-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, who fielded the ball as though it were a little white mouse and appear ready for a clubhouse meeting themselves. The Cubs held theirs, another 40-minute search-thy-soul seminar, well before game time in a clubhouse that reportedly reverberated only good vibes.

No wonder there. Manager Jim Marshall and coaches were not invited. THEN, JUST to make all the rhetoric look worthwhile, the Chicagoans mounted an offense consisting of 13 hits, five Cardinal errors, two wild pitches, two stolen bases, but only one passed ball. And still it wasn't easy. Before Steve Stone could claim his second triumph of the season, he needed relief from Mike Garman, who needed relief from Joe Coleman, who fanned Vic Harris, Ron Fairly and Bake McBride in order with runners at second and third in the ninth inning.

It was the second most difficult feat of Coleman's day. "The first was calling that meeting," said the veteran right hander, who now has both hands full as Cub player representative. "I thought when I brought up the subject, that a few guys would be cool to me and say 'who is he to call a meeting when he's only been here a "BUT EVERYBODY was great and I really believe we got a lot done. You've got to crawl before you walk, and maybe this was the first step. And please don't draw any conclusions from the fact that tiie meeting was for players only.

"The fact that we asked Manager Jim Marshall and his coaches not to be included has nothing to do with how we feel they are doing their jobs. We are concerned about how we are doing ours. It's up to us to pull together as a team. "Some of us have been taking this business of losing a little too lightly. I wanted to call this meeting.

It was my own idea. But I wouldn't have done it without first talking to Darold Knowles, Steve Renko, Rick Monday, and Randy Hundley. "THEY'RE ALL either former player reps or guys who have been around a long time and guys who are respected. They were all for it and so was Jim Marshall. We talked in generalities about how we could be better than we are.

There were no names mentioned." The name most commonly whispered about the Cub bathhouse was that of Jerry Morales. For the third straight day, he didn't qualify for Marshall's lineup card. "I gave him a rest the last two days because he was swinging a cold bat, and I didn't think I had to notify him," said Marshall. "That's what lineup cards are for. I was going to play him tonight against the left hander Pete Falcone, Cardinal loser, but Jerry said he has a bad back." TEAMMATES HINTED that Morales was sore, but not necessarily in the spine.

For publication he said he was hurting, but fellow players considered it a swipe at Marshall: that is, you can't fire me again today, because I quit. Morales did say that he didn't say Marshall was "gutless," but he punctuated his statement by adding that "I just don't understand the manager and what he does." Neither does Jose Cardenal, who was Thursday's designated grumbler because he was batting cleanup a spot he detests. "I BATTING there takes away all our hit and run, everything," said Cardenal. "I should be batting No. 2.

Morales should be No. 4. But the man Marshall doesn't know what he's doing." Cardenal had a good night, but a shortened one, leaving with a sore left knee that may sideline him Friday night. His partner on the bench may be Rick Monday, who started but didn't finish because of bruised ribs incurred while making a fine diving catch Wednesday afternoon at San Francisco. utttAo arm Conorol Ctr Cora 55 DunOee S3t-3SJi Caiumal Cltj Tho Auto (hop 656 Buii-i-m 60 Chlcogo Hetghto F.

After Bill North struck out, Campaneris came through with his decisive fly ball. The Yanks got solo home runs from Oscar Gamble and Graig Nettles and tied the score on four walks in the seventh, three of them coming after shortstop Campaneris touched second base for a force play but forgot the number of outs and neglected to throw to first for what would have been an easy inning-ending double play.
