"You get used to the pace in the bullpen and it's lough when you have to go out there for more than a few innings,' the veteran relief ace said Tuesday nighl after making his first start since 1970 and blanking the Los Angeles Dodgers for seven innings in the Pirates 2-0 victory. Houston's Mike Cosgrove, on the other hand, would like to follow in Giusti's footsteps . . . or at least the path Giusti trod ·hen he made 113 starts for the Astros in 1965-6-7-8 before he was traded first to St. Louis and then to Pittsburgh. "I would like to think I ve earned a starting assignment, but T don't think so," the young left-bander said after relieving Dave Roberts with one out in the first inning and holding the Philadelphia Phillies to a pair of bunt singles the rest of the way in Houston's 1-0 triumph.

"We'll be glad to schedule meeting lo satisfy everybody as (o (he situation." said Walter Brown, nalillo Wrestling Board, which super vised the fight. He said, how ever, t h a i no official reques' for a hearing had been filed. A draw for me here is like a victory," said a dejected Ann mada after battling Foster. *T was a close fight, but I though I had a victory. But he's th champ, and he was f i g h t i n g in his hometown." Under the 10-point must scor ing system, referee Jimm Cleary favored A h u m a d a 145 142. judge Tim Keleher backet Foster 148-143 and judge Stan Gallup rated both fighters even at 144-144 to force Ihe draw.
