Thursday's Games California at Kansas City, night Chicago at Minnesota, night Detroit at Cleveland, night New York at Baltimore, night By DARRELL MACK UPI Sports Writer HOUSTON (UPI) -- Roberto Clemente of the Pittsburgh Pirates made the greatest catch in the history of the Astrodome and as good a catch as he has ever made in his 17- ear career to save Steve Mass' 3-0 shutout over the Houston Astros Tuesday night Clemente, possibly the best defensive right fielder in baseball history, made two extraordinary catches in the eighth inning with the speedy foe Morgan on first base, one out and the Pirates leading 1-0. Caesar Cedeno hit a sharp me to short right field and Clemente dashed in to make a tiding catch inches above the grass. I lost the ball in the lights ut I had to keep charging in," Clemente said later. "I started sliding and t saw it again." Then Clemente was playing in the same spot in medium deep right center when Bob Watson cracked a liner toward the right field corner. Most right lelders would have played it off the wall and Morgan would lave scored the tying run, but the 36-year-old Clemente took off after the ball He caught up with it at the wall, leaped high and caught it as he crashed into the boards at full speed. He said it was above the yellow home run line which runs across the wall 10 eet above the ground. A homer would have put Houston ahead 2-1. I don't even think I could get the ball, but I had to try md t jump," Clemente said. Houston manager Harry Walker, who has been in baseball 34 fears, and Coach Buddy lancken, who has been in aseball 36 years, both said it was the greatest catch they had ever seen. "I never saw one like that off the wall," Walker said. "He hit t wide open. He never slowed up. I don't see how he could eep the ball in his glove. "The thing that makes him so great is that he does it all in a am," Walker said. "He's one of the best clutch players in the ame." Bill Mazeroski, Clemente's cammate since 1956, compared t to a 1960 catch of Willie Mays ine drive as the greatest Clemente has ever made. The Pirates star hit me wall in right center in Pittsburgh with the catch and it required even stitches to close the wound in his chin. That also ame in a late inning of a 1-0 game. Clemente suffered cuts on his PINEVILLE DR. IN "THE HOOKED GENERATION" R-RaMd -- PLUS -"HOW TO SUCCEED WITH SEX" left hip and knee and his left ankle and elbow were in ice packs as a result of the collision with the Dome wall. He said he didn't know which was the best play. "A great catch is one that saves the game," Clemente said. "It's just like a home run. It doesn't make any difference if it's a short one or a long one if it wins the game." Blass, 7-3, pitched his fourth shutout with a six hitter. Al Oliver hit a solo home run on a fastball in the seventh inning to break up a scoreless duel with Larry Dierker. It was the first home run off Dierker in 95 innings, and it sent him to his second straight defeat and a 10-3 record. Houston scored only one run for him in both losses, the other defeat being by a 24 score. The Pirates scored two runs off reliefers in the ninth inning on singles by Vic Davilillo, Rich Hebner and Manny Sanguillen, coupled with a walk and a wild pitch. Dierker had left for a pinch hitter in the seventh. "You hate to lose while you're hot because then you might cool off," Dierker said. "You hate to lose well pitched games, but that's been the story with all our guys. "I pitched as well in the last two games I lost as in the 10 games I won," he said. "I was lucky enough to have runs for a while, but it looks like none of us are getting any now." Houston, hitting only .240, will send Wade Blasingame, 4-6, against Pirate ace Dock Ellis, 9-3, in the rubber game of the series Wednesday night.

Downing Spins 5-Hfffer LA Dodgers Down Mets For 5th Straight Triumph By VITO STELLINO Scratch one name from the list of former fastballers who drift into oblivion once they lose their speed. Al Downing, traded three times in the last year and seemingly going nowhere fast, suddenly has the best record-7-3--of the starting pitchers on the Los Angeles Dodgers' staff. Downing recorded his latest win Tuesday night with a five- hitter to give the Dodgers a 2-0 victory over the New York mets for their fifth straight triumph. "I'm throwing only ; about 60 percent of what I used to throw," the former New York Yankee fastballer said, "But it's fortunate that I've learned how to pitch. I realize I'll never throw that hard again but I've learned to make an adjustment. A few of those up and down years I had were all part of a learning process" Plagued by a sore arm, Downing who had averaged 13 victories a season the previous five years, won only three games for the Yanks in 1968 when he spent part of the season in the minors. After a 7- proving he isn't through yet. "It was the first cut I ever had to take and it hurt on principle more than anything else because taxes take most of the money. But I took the cut because I want to stay in the game and be a manager and I don't want to be known as Wills, the holdout," he said. The Giants slopped their slide on a four-hitter by Ron Brant as they erupted for four runs in the fourth to beat Philadelphia. Blass pitched a six-hitter for Willie McCovey, undergo an exam 5 record in shipped him 1969, New York to Oakland.

The Dodgers picked him up during spring training and he pitched his way into the rotation and now is one of the most consistent pitchers on the staff. He also enjoys being with a "The players attitude here. They know how to win. A couple of clubs I was with the last couple of years didn't know how to win. They'd start going bad and push the panic button. This team is different. We were 10 games behind a month ago now we're only five out because we're used to winning. They know how to handle it. Maury Wills provided Downing with all the help he needed with a two-run single in the fifth off fastballer Nolan Ryan on an 0-2 pitch. Wills took a cut in salary at the start of the year but he's hitting .305 and tiis fourth Houston.

"We did not make a deal," Walsh said. "We are going to stay with the club the way it is now constituted. We talked to several clubs, including Milwaukee and Washington. "The people we were offered were not worthy of any deal." Walsh said the most serious discussion involved Milwaukee's Tommy Harper but he said when Harper had two doubles and a home run in Tuesday night's game, the deal fell through. Walsh said he planned to have a short session with Johnson to resolve the club's difficulities with him. But he said it would be up to manager Lefty Phillips as to how he planned to play Johnson. Johnson was in the Angels lineup Tuesday night as a starter for the first time since * * * * ___ _ ague Results w Miller P 0 0 0 0 Totals 32 3 6 3 Totals 35 1 9 1 8. n DlefO »10 000 W2~ 3 Montreal 090 COO 100-1 -- Hernandez, Sutherland, Staub.

Johnson, who has been with a half a dozen clubs, had been at odds with his teammates as well as with manager Phillips. "I'm going to put his name down and let him play regularly," Phillips said. Johnson on Monday accused teammate Chico Ruiz of pulling gun on him in the Angels* clubhouse. Ruiz denied the c h a r g e although admitting there had been bad blood between them for some time.
