LOS ANGELES CAP) - Manager Walter Alston and his Los Angeles Dodgers couldn't be blamed for wondering what will happen in the National League's western division once the San Francisco Giants become healthy. The surging Giants limped into town Thursday to send ace righthander Juan Marichal, 113, against the Dodger's Don Sutton, 11-8, in the opener of a four- game series. The Giants have won nine of their last 12 games. Alston might not recognize many of the Giants' starters but San Francisco skipper Clyde King was beaming with pride over the work of his reserves after Wednesday's 10-3 romp over the Houston Astros. For the second straight game hit shutout after six innings only to see the Giants erupt in the seventh and eighth for one- sided runaways. Righthander Larry Dierker was clobbered for two runs in the seventh and five more in the eighth in dropping a 7-4 decision. Wednesday the Giants defeated Denny Lemaster, 7-9, with four runs in the seventh and six in the eighth. Ken Henderson's two-run double and Dave Marshall's run- scoring pinch single were the big blows in the seventh. Bob Burda's grand slam homer highlighted the eighth-inning rally. Those three reserves plus Tito Fuentes have filled in for injured Giants regulars King indicated Willy McCovey, Hal La- nier and Jim Hart would be sidelined again for the Dodger series opener. Reserves weren't the whole show. Willie Mays hit a run- scoring single in the seventh and a run-scoring double in the eighth. The two hits pushed him past Frankie Frisch and into J7th place on the all-time list with 2,881. Veteran reliever Frank Linzy retired the last six Aslros to register his eighth save and help rookie lefthander Ron Bryant, 1-0, notch his first major league victory. Doug Rader's run-scoring single and Joe Morgan's bases- loaded walk gave Houston two runs off starter Bob Bolin in the second.

Faustina Zabala and Charlie Guth produced another tally in the three-run fifth inning. It took Dallas-Fort Worth and Amarillo nearly six hours to twin bill at Arling- host Spurs twice overcame Amarillo leads to take the opener 8-6. The Giants pulled out an eight-inning victory 4-3 in the nightcap. Larry Johnson drove in the winning run for the Spurs in the first game but failed in trying to pull the second out of the fire. With Don Baylor at second base and two out in the eighth, Johnson fanned. The split left Dallas-Fort Worth two and a half games .702 .563 .553 .517 .460 .393 .452 .446 .427 373 Baltimore Detroit ..

Tom Seaver pitched a one-hit* ter, beating Chicago 4-0 for the Mets 1 seventh straight victory Wednesday night. It trimmed the Cubs' lead over New York to lnr ee games-in the Bast Division race. It should have been a source of great Joy. It was, believe it or A<H. a source of great disappointment- That's because Seaver flirted with immortality by retiring 25 consecutive Cubs before ropjsie Jimmy Quails ended- his perfect game bid with § oiie-out single in the ninth inning.
