TMPlMnw-THtN rmnjnft.lna.-is NEW YORK (UPIi - The Kansas City Royal*, one game to the good and just chock lull of •surprises, send erratic speertballcr Andy Hasslerto the • mound tonight In an attempt to make It two straight victories •over the wounded Now York "Yankees in the American • League playoffs. Blitzed 7-2 by a salvo of three homers in Wednesday's opener 'and with star left-hander Don Gulled out of the series with a • sore shoulder, the Yankees arc countering with 27-year-old Ron -Guldry, their most consistent pitcher all season, in an effort to |'square the series at one game ' : each. ••' A victory tonight would all ' but clinch the best-of-five scries (or the Royals inasmuch as the scene shifts to Kansas City beginning Friday, where the Royals are especially hard to beat on their artificial turf. The fourth and fifth games, if necessary, are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday in Kansas City. s ' In Hassler. Manager Whiley Herzog selected a Icfl-hander with blazing speed and an in-and-out record. Hasslcr had a 9-G record and -1.20 ERA during the regular season and has a 2-148 career record, including one stretch during which he lost 18 coasccutivc games. He has the left-handed speed, however, to cut down Yankee left-handed power — a feat performed well by Paul Splittorff in Wednesday's triumph. "Andy has pitched well in New York," explained Herzog, who said that lefty Larry Gura would be in the bullpen. "He is capable of pitching a great game. His lifetime record is very deceptive. He has been an unlucky pitcher." Hcrzog was obviously elated over the Royals' first-game victory but was ready with a quip when asked whether it gave his players a psychological lift. . "No." he said, "it gave us a one-game lead." Manager Billy Martin, facing still another crisis in a season of turmoil, said that Gulletl had suffered a reoccurcnce of the sore shoulder which bothered him during the summer. Gullet t Is definitely out of the playoffs and probably the World Series. should the Yankees rally to win the American League pennant. The Yankee pitching staff is definitely In bad shape with Jim Hunter out of the playoffs with a hernia, Ed Figueron a questionmark. Ken -Holtzman acknowledging that he is not "ready to pitch" because of inactivity and -Mike Torrez ineffective during the last month of the season. , "We've still got a guy named Sparky Lyle.in the bullpen," said Martin when pressed about his pitching sltualion. "Our pitcher could pitch a shutout in the second game." Guidry, whose only previous appearance in playoff competition was as a pinch-runner, barely made the Yankees In spring training but was (heir most consistent pitcher during (he season. Essentially a fastball pitcher. Guidry had a 16 : 7 record, with a 2,82 ERA and five shutouts. ~ "I don't feel any extra pressure." said Guidry when asked about the assignment. "I've beaten the Royals .before and I'm going out hoping that 1 can do it again." Quarterbacks Are Sore ' Bruised and sore quarterbacks were the rule as Illinois and Wisconsin prepared to meet each other in a Big Ten football contest Saturday in Madison. Wisconsin quarlcrback Anthony Dudley received treatment for his sore back Wednesday, and Coach John Jardine said Dudley would return ' 'to the practice field today. Dudley, a junior from Detroit, has led undefeated Wisconsin to four straight victories. Illinois reserve quarterback Mike McCray resumed team practice Wednesday, but chances were still slim that •JlcCray, who suffered head injuries warming up for last week's Syracuse game, will make the Madison trip. That would leave freshman Tim McAvoy as backup for regular signal-caller Kurt Stcger. McAvoy is a 6-fooM. 200-pounder from Chicago, Another sore quarterback Is Ed Smith ol Michigan State, who was forced to leave last Saturday's game in the third quarter after being pummeled by Notre Dame's defensive line. He received a bruised shoulder. Smith and the Spartans face No. 2 rated Michigan this Saturday and although the Wolverine defensive line isn't as highly touted as Notre Dame's, coach Darryl Rogers says it should be respected. "Potentially, they can give us problems," the Spartan coach said, "Anytime you play against a team with good, quick lineman, it can bother you." Indiana coach Lee Corso learned three of his injured first-stringers will likely be back In action against Northwestern Saturday, hut one of his top replacements probably won't be able to play. Linebacker Joe Norman. Logan Girls Are Beaten By Warriors Pioneer Girls Split ROYAL CENTER-Pioneer and Twin Lakes split a pair of volleyball matches here Wednesday night.

Pennick, a freshman, started as a flanker and kick returner against Louisiana Stale three weekends ago. but hurt an ankle in that game. He appears likely to be back in action Saturday, The underdog Royals — the Yankees were favored at 7-5 to take-both the first game and the series — surprised New York Wednesday with a Wiling blitz which gave them a 6-2 lead after Ihree innings. Splittorff worked out of early trouble, yielded a two-run homer to Thurmnn Munson in the third inning/and then held the Yankees scoreless from the fourth through the eighth. Doug Bird, took over when Chris Chambllss opened the Yankee ninth with a walk and pitched ,Tscoreless Inning, with the help" of a double play that came' close' to being a game-ending double-play. Fred Patek opened the Kansas City first with a walk and Hal McRae followed with a two-run homer off Gullell, who claimed he "had trouble getting loose." Patek's two-run double built the Royals' lead to 4-0 in the second inning and At Cowens' single and John Mayberry's 400-foot homer boosted their lead to fi-o In the top of the third. Cowens tacked* on me Koyals' seventh run when he homered to lead off the eighth. ••The early runs helped Splillorff a lot." said Herzog. 1 "He was excited and struggling In (he early Innings. He was hit pretty hard and I doubt if we could have left him in through eight Innlngi wirtiout those early runs," "I had a pretty good fastball and a hard slider." said Splittorff. "I tried to keep their left-handed, power down with of (-speed stuff. ' "I felt a little different than usual pitching in this game," he added. "I had a special feeling because a lot-of people have said I could be the key to the Royals' chances in the'series. I felt I made good pitches to Reggie Jactcsoin and Craig Nettles i who went o-fotDV You can'.t make mistakes out over the plate with either of those guys."
