"I was thrilled to death to see Pittsburgh fans letting Dave know what they really think of him," said Pirate Manager Chuck Tanner. "He plays hurt. He gives his best every day. He's the best player in the game." In a July 20 game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Parker removed himself from right field after somebody tossed a 9-volt transistor battery in his direction onto the playing field. Earlier in that same game, he had jammed his knee on a slide into second base. "That was something new to me. It's the first time it ever happened to me since I've been here," Parker said. Parker got his second standing ovation in the seventh inning when he was replaced by a pinch-runner after rapping a single to complete a four-for-four night. Phillies 4, Giants 3 SAN FRANCISCO Dick Ruthven won his fourth straight game and got Philadelphia's only extra base hit, an RBI double, leading the Phillies to a 4-3 victory over the San Francisco Giants. With the victory, the Phillies swept the three-game series and took a half-game lead over Pittsburgh in the National League East. Ruthven 14-8 improved his lifetime record against the Giants to 12-4, going innings before he got help from Tug McGraw, who got his 16th save. Padres 4, Expos 3 SAN DIEGO Gene Tenace and Luis Salazar each scored once and drove in a run, and Steve Mura combined with two relievers on a five-hitter to lead the San Diego Padres to a 4-3 victory over the Montreal Expos. The victory snapped a four-game losing streak for Mura 5-7 and dropped the Expos one game back in the National League East behind Philadelphia. Mura went V's innings before Gary Lucas relieved. Rollie Fingers came on to get the last out and earned his 19th save when pinch runner Tony Bernazard was out stealing. Dodgers 2, Mets 0 LOS ANGELES Burt Hooton pitched Los Angeles to its seventh straight victory, a 2-0 shutout over the New York Mets, moving the Dodgers a full game ahead of Houston in the National League West. Bill Russell squeezed home the first run, and Steve Garvey hit his 23d homer for the second run as the surging Dodgers won their 14th game in their last 16. Cardinals 4, Reds 3 ST. LOUIS Tony Scott's one-out single in the 10th inning scored Don Hood from second base and gave the St. Louis Cardinals a 4-3 victory over the Cincin- National League His knee is still hurting, and it's a day-to-day proposition whether be can play. But Parker is batting an even .400 in his last 21 games, and he's apparently at peace with the fans. "IT'S A GOOD feeling to know you had a good day and the fans acknowledged it," said Parker. "I almost scratched myself from the lineup before the game. But from what happened I'm glad I didn't." Parker got his initial standing ovation in the fifth inning after he smacked lus second two-run homer of the night. nati Reds. Scott's hit came off Reds reliever Tom Hume 7-9, handing the victory to Jim Kaat 6-7, who pitched the 10th inning. McGlothen, Cubs lose it all Sports (briefing 4 Marvis FrazieY is turning pro MARVIS FRAZIER, who while watching his father demolish Jerry Quarry in Madison Square Garden six years ago vowed he would be back as a competitor, is only 100 yards from fulfilling the promise. He'll lurn pro Sept. 12, his 20th birthday, with a four-rounder in the Felt Forum next door. And if a good manager is half the battle, having Dad in his corner can hurt. "I NEVER THOUGHT about a no-hitter," he said, "because I'd never come close to one before. But I did go out to pitch a shutout, because I've been shut out 2-0 in my last two starts." McGlothen admitted "there were times when I had better stuff, but I feel 1 know how to pilch now. I threw more sliders. Because of the sliders, they couldn't get around and popped up my fast balls. I felt the ball Murphy hit was a perfect pitch." ''McGlothen had such good control he was always right around the corners that we had to swing at his first and second pitches," said Gary Matthews, whose homer in the eighth proved to be the winning run. "And Murphy got on a first pitch and hit it out." McGLOTIIEN DIDN'T overpower the Braves, he finessed them. Five of the first 10 batters popped to first baseman Cliff Johnson, and only four Braves in the first six innings hit the ball out of the infield. McGlothen struck out six. "It was fun while it lasted" McGlothen said. "I enjoyed it. But when you're not going well, you don't get the breaks." The Cubs did get one break, however, McGlothen felt. It. came in the first inning after Matthews reached base on Mike Vail's two-base error in right. Horner lined a ball off the left-field wall, raced to third and learned the umps had called it foul. "I THROUGHT Horner's hit was fair," said McGlothen. "I thought, when they call it foul, well, I got that call. It's a good omen. "Yes, it was fun while it lasted," McGlothen repeated. "But then it caught me so quick, I didn't have time to get adjusted. The no-hitter, the shutout, the game all gone!" McGlothen and the season's crowd, 3.480 cash customers, enjoyed the middle innings. McGlothen retired 15 batters in a row. And Jim Tracy and Carlos Iiezcano, the two rookie outfielders just recalled from the minors, were hitting. TRACY HAD FOUR hits in four at bats, raising his average from .182 to .308. Lezcano's fourth-inning homer earned the Cubs their 2-0 lead. "I had this thing in my mind that they throw so much harder up here than in Triple said Tracy. "Well, they don't. The velocity is the same. It's only the location that's sharper. So I kept telling myself 'stay back, and see the ball as well as you Tracy gave the Cubs their last hope, tripling in the ninth and scoring on Mike Vail's infield out. "When Lezcano hit that home run, I really felt confident," said McGlothen. "I was never thinking of no-hitting them, but I thought 1 could shut them out. Then that one big hit my Murphy changed the whole complexion." By Bill Jauss TOMMY BOGGS. the winning pitcher, knew exactly the kind of silent suffering Lynn McGlothen was undergoing over in the Cubs clubhouse. "I've been there myself," Boggs said Wednesday after Atlanta had handed the Cubs a 4-3 "loss, the 13th in 15 games. "McGlothen was pitching just a super game," said Boggs. "Then all at. once he lost the no-lutter and the shutout and the game. "I feel bad for him," Boggs said, "and the thing is, he'll think about this lor five days." Boggs referred to the Atlanta lightning that struck after McGlothlen, masterfully working the corners and outthinking the hitters, went into the seventh with a 2-0 lead and a no-hit game. BOB HORNER broke up the no-hitter with a single off second baseman Mike Tyson's glove. Chris Chambliss singled Horner to third on a three-ball, two-strike pitch. Dale Murphy hit McGlo-then's first pitch, and it barely cleared the wall in the "well' in right field, and Atlanta led 3-2. "I hit a good pitch," said Murphy. "I didn't think it would make it. It just seemed to keep carrying." Horner and Murphy felt the infield hit that broke up the no-hitter might have broken McGlothen's concentration. McGlothen explained otherwise. Joe and George Benton will train Marvis, who completed an amateur heavyweight career with a 53-2 record. "I gave a lot of thought to waiting until the 1984 Marvis said. "But I don't want to be dependent on my mother and father. I want to be my own man." Fore! and aft The women's pro golf tour now knows the answer to the age-old question, What's in a name? More of a hassle than they really wanted. So, they have reached an out of court settlement with the Professional Golfers' Association of America and the PGA Tour and will change the name of the World Series of Women's Golf next year. The men's groups had threatened court action to seek a temporary restraining order against use of the name, charging it infringed on their trademark for the World Series of Golf, held at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio, since 1962. Baseball, which has been using the name World Series since 1903. has felt no need to quibble. Sox lose on Farmer's wild pitch at. ii4 That's tough File this under "For what it's worth." Penn State, on the basis of last year's records, will play the toughest schedule in NCAA Division 1-A football this season. Its foes were 72-37 .661 last season. At the bottom of the 62 that were rated by the NCAA sits national champion Alabama, pit ted against a group that went 57-56-2. Wisconsin's slate was rated seventh .5956 and Notre said only "What do you want to know? You saw the game. It was a wild pitch." The game should have ended on Dyar's grounder to third baseman Greg Pryor. Pryor threw high to second baseman Jim Morrison, pulling him off the bag. He recovered enough to make the force, but any possible relay to first for a game-ending double play had gone by the boards. Farmer then unloaded a wild pitch to Alan Trammell to score Stegman and make a winner of reliever Aurelio Lopez 11-5. From Tribune Wire Services DETROIT Ed Farmer's wild pilch with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning allowed pinch runner Dave Steg-man to score the winning run Wednesday night, lifting the Detroit Tigers to a 5-4 victory over the White Sox. Trailing 4-1 in the ninth, the Tigers loaded the bases on singles by John Wockenfuss and Al Cowens and a walk to Tom Brookens. Pinch hitter Champ Summers was hit by a pitch by loser Richard Wortham 4-7, and Brookens scored on Duffy Dyar's bounce out. Rick Peters followed with a single to tie the game 4-4. Detroit Manager Sparky Anderson, who will take a victory any way he can get it, still didn't find much to be happy about. "Who deserved to lose more? he asked rhetorically. "That's what this game amounted to." TIGER RIGHT-HANDER Dave Ro-zema, who appeared headed for his ninth defeat of the year before Detroit took him off the hook, said, "That was a very bad, poorly played ballgame." Farmer, stalking off to the showers as reporters approached after the game, Dame's ninth .5913. The NCAA, obviously not wishing to incur the wrath of Bear Bryant and the 'Bama backers, was careful to point out that tradition, results over many years, bowls, and intersectional history also have a bearing on the truly toughest schedules.

California dreamin' Isn't life fun with a loser? Gene Klein, owner of the San Diego Chargers who wants to expand San Diego Stadium, says he was approached recently by an unnamed party to buy the struggling 12-year-old Padres franchise. Ballard Smith (who doesn't want to expand president of the Padres and son-in-law of owner Ray Kroc, says Klein's claim isn't worth the gas it would take to grill a Big Mac rare. "This ballclub isn't for sale." Former California attorney general Evelle Younger is in this thing, too. Smith says he did have lunch with Younger as a favor to someone, but "I made it very clear beforehand the team wasn't for sale." Klein says, "My information is that he lYounger was negotiating and did meet with Smith and was negotiating for the purchase of the Padres." The only sure thing in this longstanding feud is the Padres are mired in last place and 6,685 excited fans showed up Wednesday night.
