It was Torre's third luinie run in Dodger Stadium. The olhers were hit off of Sanrly Koufax, Don Drysdale and Don Sutton.

"After that the Dodgers' frustration began in earnest. They stranded two runners in t h e seventh, two in the eighth and left the bases loaded in the n i n t h .

It was painfully obvious be would rather have been down on the f i e l d . Williams managed both the Sox and the A's fo World Series victories, and hi knows the teams and lhc game heller than ho knows the whis kers in his gray mustache. But if Ibere is no managerial spot open to the gregarious Williams, he should land a TV contract. He could contribute great deal lo the troubled sport with his easy e.xperlise aivl his natural ability lo speak lucidly. Except for the onerous chore of reading Ihe lineups, Williams came across like an old pro on the tube. At times, you couldn't tell the a m a t e u r from the regulars. Williams behaved himself. Despite nudging f r o m NBC announcers Curt Gowdy and Tony Kuhek. he did not pill t h e bite on Finley, Asked if he missed the A's, Williams answered carefully, "I miss the ball players. We mel before- the game and it was njnyahle." In an interview before the game. Williams told The AP, "I iiiss baseball, but not Mr. Finey. f haven't mis.scd Air.

"Mr. Finley said in March I vas free to manage any club except the New York Ya kces," Williams said. Asked if ic had contacted any tc-ims or tad been contacted, he responded, "Negative, both ways.

I would like to manage the All Star team, lint I Hunk they have a m a n a g e r ^tid I wouldn't know what u n i f o n u to wear." As for his TV commentary, it was crisp and a u t h o r i L u i v c .
