Bahnsen Pitches White Sox to Win irgainst Athletics GttlCAGO (UPlHStan Bahn- -sen.decided to change his pltch- jng style and challenge the hitters" Xvhen he was assigned to : face' the world champion Oak* Jand'"A's Thursday night. The result was a 2-0 shutout ,Jor Bahnsen and the Chicago White Sox although the husky righjjftander allowed 12 hits. Chicago Manager Chuck Tan nef'called it "one of the most "courageous games I've ever -seen,pitched in the major -leagues. He threw everything -at them, everything he could 4hrpWi It was guts galore for .nine innings." Bahnsen said he had been "trying to be too fine" before Thursday night. "1 had been 3 and 1 on a lot of hitters and they would walk. ;So^ I'figured out before the game to make them hit the "ball.' Either they'd get me out : -of>there quick or I'd get them ,,out," he said. „ Bahnsen walked only one batter* and said he could not remember the last time he had got by with only one walk. This year'he had allowed 53 walks „.in .112. innings before facing the "A's. "My change-up worked well," he ;sajd. "I was able to get everything over the plate — the fast ball, the curve and the slider. I threw them all. "I've been having too many •men on base so I just decided to pitch to each man. I still had a lot of men on base, but my control got belter and I mixed my pitches well," he said. Honors for Chicago's key M in the shutout went to John Jeter, who slashed a fifth- inning double which scored Ed Herrmann, who doubled home the first run of the game and then scored himself on Carlos May's single. Jeter made what Tanner called the "big catch" of the game when he hauled in a drive by pinch hitter Rich McKinney in deep centerfield with a runner on first base and one out in the ninth inning. Jeter also made a key throw in the fifth when he retrieved a single by Bill North and threw out Bert Campaneris who was attempting to go from first to third. "We can ourselves out in a couple of innings," A's Manager Dick Williams said. "We have to execute better and use sounder judgment on offense and defense."

(UPI) — Prank Leahy, one of college football's most successful coaches with seven unbeaten seasons at Notre Dame, is dead following a five-year battle against leukemia and other crippling ailments. Leaihy, who would have been 65 Aug. 21, succumbed to massive heart failure Thursday at Good Samaritan Hospital. He also had been suffering from spinal arthritis, an infected bladder and diabetes. He fought the ailments just like he coached his football teams—to win. "His death was no surprise," said Johnny Lattner, one of four Heisman Trophy winners Leahy coached. "He'd known it for two years, and when he first found out hie had leukemia, he told me, 'John, I'll be the first to beat it.' " Lattner revealed that Leahy was taking acupuncture treatment for his arthritic spine, and said Leahy's decision to take the itreafcment was symbolic of his character. "It eliminated a lot of the pain, and he wanted to be ait leukemia through acupuncture. He just wanted to win," said Lattner. Leahy, at the time of his death, was an executive for Canteen Corp., a vending operation, and lived in nearby Lake Oswego, Ore. He is survived by his widow, Florence, and seven children—Frank Jr., Gerald, Mary and Christopher, all of Lake Oswego; James, of Pasco, Wash.; Mrs. Sue Muostakas, Chicago, and Mrs. Florence Harter, Chicago, and 14 grandchildren. Mrs. Leahy said she would decide sometime today whether to hold the funeral services in Fontland or Long Beach, Ind., where the Leahys lived for many years. Last week, he said he was "absolutely crushed" because he was unable to attend an annual award dinner in his honor ait Chicago. But lie managed to speak on a telephone hookup. "He put up ia great battle," said Chicago Bears owner George Hates. "It was characteristic of him."

"He's been great in the last fewigames," Quilici said, "he's as'good as anyone in the league .,right, now." ;•' He^certainly looked it Thursday night when he dueled Clyde Wright in a tense struggle before the Twins pulled out a dramatic 1-0 victory over the California Angels when Joe Lis singled in the only run in the last of the ninth. After a a slow start this year, Blyleven now 9-7, is in the groove, and his last five victories have been shutouts. In his last seven starts, he's pitched 60 1-3 innings and allowed only five earned runs. Blyleven gave up eight hits and walked one. Wright matched him, allowing seven hits but the Twins finally pulled it out in the last of the ninth when Bobby Darwin singled, stole second and scored on Lis' two-out pinch single.

Well, Osteen, a slightly built left-handed pltoher for the Los Angeles Dodgers may be the most, underrated pitcher in bassiball. He isn't among the game's $100,000 pitchers, but he has a 9-3 record this season and is >a two-time 20-game winner. Osteen scored his sixth straight win Thursday night when he pitched his 37th major league shutout—a four-hitter— to give the Dodgers a 5-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves. It also was the Dodgers' sixi'ih straight win >and completed a four-game sweep of the series. Willie Crawford homered and Bill Buckner and Willie Davis had two hits each to lead the Dodgers' attack while Frank Baker had two hits for Atlanta Carl Morton suffered his sixth loss against six wins for Atlanta.
