McKee; suffering from an ailing back here of late, knows what it is to be without runs to support him, however: The Charlies play dead, it seems, when he hurts. They did get three runs before it was alt over, but it was too little, too late. They wast- j6d a fine relief stint by Don Leshnock in the process. He worked 3 innings, allowing only one hit. And so the Charlies' home record slipped to 16-14 and they went two games below the .500 mark in he standings. horseshoe pitcher, will show his stuff in a match with the former West Virginia champion, Ralph Maddqx, between games today.

Johnson BOSTON (AP) - "I'm just happy I had a lot of runs going for me and I'm happy to see the way the young guys on this club have matured/' Cleveland's Gaylord Perry said Saturday after hurling a four-hitter for his 13th consecutive victory, an 11-0 stampeding of the Boston Red Sox. Frank Duffy drove in five runs with a single, a double and a homer that led Cleveland's 20-hit barrage that made things easy for the tall righthander. The nationally televised game was the first halt of a day-night doubleheader. "All I'm looking for now is the next game. That probably will be next Thursday" Perry said after taking another step toward the record for consecutive victories. If he does go next Thursday, it'll be against Boston again, this time in Cleveland. Perry now is 10-1 against the Red Sox since he was traded to the Indians by the San Fransicso Giants in 1972. "I've been lucky against the Red Sox" he admitted, "but I don't have anything special that I use against them over any other club. "1 recall I was 0-7 against Milwaukee at one time and 0-8 against Oakland. I still threw the same. It's just one of those things" Perry, who gained notoriety for what many batters believed was a spitball, said a sideline exhibition of his pitches for the umpires' benefit in Boston last April has helped him. "I was able to demonstrate that I did have a good sharp breaking forkball," he said. "And 1 also came to the conclusion that I should.forget about all the decoying movements I used to go through. "I think that hurt me in the opening game against New York because I was concentrating too much on changing my style. Since then, I haven't had any problems. "But I do get a little lonely out on the mound," he added with a grin creasing his unshaven face. '"I used to have a lot of people around me until this year." Perry, who has not lost since opening day, lowered his earned-run average to a :ph^riomehal 1.28 in 1462 : 3 innings this season and moved within three of the American League record of 16 straight victories, a mark shared by four pitchers. The major league record is 19 in a row. BOBBY GRICH Three RBI a bases-clearing double into the left field corner. Then the rain came. When it stopped, Cleveland climaxed its outburst with Duffy's double. The Indians added three runs in the sixth inning off Dick Pole on Duncan's double, Duffy's run-scoring single, Buddy Bell's infield hit and Jack Brohamer's two-run triple. Duffy slugged his sixth homer of the baseball season in the ninth off Bob Veale following singles by Gamble and Duncan. Tigers 4, Yankees 1 -- Jim N o r t h r u p scored the tie- breaking run in the ninth inning on Graig Nettles' throwing error to the plate, then Willie Horton slugged a two- run single to boost Detroit Tigers to a 4-1 victory over the New York Yankees. White Sox 3, Twins 1 Jorge Orta's tie-breaking two- run homer in the 10th inning powered Jim Kaat and the Chicago White Sox to a 3-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Kaat, 7-6, outdueled Vic Albury with a five-hitter to beat his former teammates. Orioles 7, Brewers I -- Bobby Grich knocked in three runs with a double and a sacrifice fly to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 7-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. Ross Ggrimsley, 8-7, scattered seven hits for his third consecutive victory. Pirates 6, Cubs 0 -- Ken Brett scattered eight Chicago hits and capped a four-run Pittsburgh rally in the fourth inning with a two-run single, leading the Pirates to a 6-0 win over the Cubs. Richie Zisk hammered his seventh home run of the baseball season off loser Ken Frailing, 5-6, in the second inning, then the Pirates batted around in the fourth. With one out, Willie Stargell, Zisk and Manny Sanguil- len singled for one run. Frailing unloaded a wild pitch, then walked Kurt Bevacqua intentionally before departing. . Reliever Horacio Pena hit Mario Mendoza with a pitch to force in a run and Brett followed with his single. A s 3, ROYALS 2 - Gene Tenace drew a bases-loaded walk in the ninth inning to force home the tie-breaking run and give Oakland at 3-2 victory over Kansas City. Cardinals 4, Expos 3 -- Ted Simmons homered in the sixth inning for the first St. Louis run and was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to cap a three-run seventh as the Cardinals beat the Montreal Expos 4-3. REDS 3, BRAVES 2- Joe Morgan drove in all the Cincinnati runs with a homer and a sacrifice fly, Fred Norman won his fourth straight game and the Reds snapped a three- game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the red-hot Atlanta Braves. PHILLIES 5, METS 2 Mike Schmidt tripled to key a three-run first inning and lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 5-2 victory over the New York Mets in the first game of a twi-night doubleheader. Fezler Vows Not to Falter MADISON-Lefty Bob Johnson of Charleston shot a two-under par 70 Saturday to grab the first-round lead of the Heck's.Open Golf Tournament. . " .. Johnson carded 35 ph each nine in the opening round of the eigth annual 36-hple .Heck's Open at Riyervie w Country Club. . : ' One stroke behind going into today's 18 j holewiridup are Eddie Williams arid Frank Sexton, both with ohe-under-par 73s.-':. · - ' ' .

Perry turned in his masterpf piece despite having to sit out/ a 47-miriute rain delay which occurred, during Cleveland's decisive fdve-run fourth in-' : ning. The lanky hurler struck out eight batters, walked just one and limited Boston to a pair of singles by Carl Yastrzem-. ski--a second-inning bunt and a seventh-inning looper to center field-Dick McAuliffe's double in the eighth and Rick Miller's single in the ninth. . Charlie Spikes, George Hendrick and Joe Las hit consecutive one-out singles off Bill Lee, 8-6, and Oscar Gamble was hit by a pitch to force in the first run of the big Cleveland fourth. Dave Duncan followed with AKRON, Ohio (AP) - He's close so often--and failed to come through--that he's become known as golf's Heartbreak Kid. The first time he got in position to win, . then lost, he broke into tears. But this time, vows Forrest Fezler, it's going to be different. "I'm. not going to lose this time," the stocky, hard-hitting 24-year-old said Saturday after taking the lead from faltering front-runners with a two-underpar 68 in the third round of the $170,000 American Golf Classic. There is a whopping log jam of 17 players locked within three shots of first place, but Fezler says it doesn't matter. This one is his. "I'm not going to let it go," he said. "I came into this one with a lot of. confidence:" He's been in this position before. Many times. And he's, never won. He was second three times last tear arid third another time: He was runner- up in last-week's U:S. Open: He was the third-round leader--just as he is now--in this tournament a year ago. Arid he finished fifth. "It takes two or three years to learn how to win," he.said, "I think I know how. I think I'm ready now." Fezler had finished his round and was in a mass interview when the early pace-setters backed off abd gave him sole control of the lead Satur" day.' .

The Chicago runner was timed in 1:43.9 to claim dominance in an event in which he never scored a single point in national collegiate competition. The two-day meet concluded with Jamaican Don Quarrie winning the featured 200-meter dash in 20.5 seconds as favored Steve Williams ran a disappointing fourth. Quarrie virtually stopped five yards before the finish and later said, "I had so much room, I had time to turn around and look." National Collegiate Athletic Association champion David Gilkes and Refgitfones, the colfcgtate m-ywBUirt, fin- ished" second and third, with Williams fourth in 20.7. Wohlhuter, an insurance executive, was named the athlete of this 86th AAU meet, edging Williams, who tied the 100-meter mark of 9.9 seconds Friday, and 10,000-meter winner Frank Shorter. Al Feuerbach of the Pacific Coast Club defended his shot put title and set a meet record of 70-9%. He defeated teammate George Woods who threw 70-2 Vz. Former Washington distance runner Jim Johnson captured the 3,000-meter steeplechase ahead of defending champion Doug Brown. Johnson clocked 8:28.8 and Brown had the same time as his late sprint was just short. Wohlhuter said he was not unhappy about failing to set a world record because "I know I'm capable of getting H soon, but right now it wouM have pit too flinch pressircifl me." '·- it-kit' ·' ' CHARLIE CHATTER: The Red Wjng series here ends with a double bill at 1:30 p.m. today. Doug Bair (3-5) and Brad Meyring (2-2) are scheduled to pitch for the Charlies against Rochester's Dyar Miller (6-1) and Bob Sekel (1-2) ... Joe Altobelli, the Wing manager who was absent for the first two games of the series, finally made it back from Rochester, where · he attended the high school graduation of his daughter. But it wasn't easy. He missed a plane connections in Pittsburgh and had to get a later plane which took him to Huntington. He was scheduled to finish the round-about trip by auto . . . Ray Miller, acting manger of the Wings and a former roommate of Bill Kirkpatrick, said he feared a 15-minute delay in the game Friday night would have some affect on Kirkpatrick in his bid for a perfect game or at least a no-hitter. "But he told me he was glad to get the rest," said Miller, "because he was getting tired." Kirkpatrick's bid went by the boards with one out in the seventh, however, when Dave Augustine singled. "Bill told me in the fifth inning that he was aware of what was going on and he said he wanted a victory more than a no-hitter.,'' Miller added, "and I sure was pulling for him." Jim Campanis, Charleston first sacker,. said Kirkpatrick wasn't throwing anything up there but junk. "But he was getting the ball over the plate and that's the name of the game for a pitcher," aid Campy...

(AP) Sandra Haynie, one of the top money winners in women's pro golf, charged into a one- stroke lead over Sandra Palmer Saturday in the third round of the $50,000 Ladies PGA Championship. Bidding for her 31st tour victory, as a belated 31st birthday present, Miss Haynie fashioned a steady par 73 for a 54-hole score .of 215 at the Pleasant Valley Country Club. Miss Palmer, who set a course record of 66 in the sec : ond round, lost a share of the lead when she shot into the water and took a double bogey 6 on the 53rd hole. However, she rebounded with a birdie 4 on the next green to finish with a 76 and a 216 total. SUTTON, Mass.
