AKKANtAS Boston Pennant Hopes Suffer Fisk Lost For Season BOSTON (AP) -- Carlton Kisk. the Boston Red Sox' all- star catcher, hobbled home for knee surgery Saturday, probably lost for the season in a crushing blow to the club's American League pennant The 26-year-old slugger, a "hard luck' victim since spring training suffered severe ligament damage to his left knee Friday night as the Cleveland Indians pulled out a 2-1 victory with two out in the ninth inning. vCron Leo, scoring the w i n 1 ning run on George Hendrick's double, crashed into Fisk as the G fool-2 receiver reached for a high relay throw to the plate from shortstop M a r i o Guerrero. Grimacing in pain, Kisk was carried from Municipal Stadium in Cleveland and taken to a hospital, where his leg was put in a cast. Later at the airport, Fisk would say only: "I don't want to say anything." Gaylord Perry, the Cleveland ace who posted bis 14(h con secutive victory with the ninth- inning run by f.ee. summed up the general feeling ol baseball observers: "This just might cost them the pennant." Boston Manager Darrell Johnson tried to be optimistic. But he was geared for the "Certainly Fisk is one of the premier catchers in baseball, and there's no way to replace a man like that." Johnson said. "However, we're not going to take a nose dive. We'll still play baseball and we'll play it good." Rob Montgomery, a veteran backup m a n , was left as the only experienced catcher. Tim Blackwell. 21, and playing, bis first full season of Triple A ball with Pawlucket in the Inter national League, was called up to replace Fisk. A switch hitter Blackwell was batting under .200 at Pawtucket. Despite injuries. Fisk led the Red Sox with 11 home runs this season in just 190 times at bat He was hitting just under .300 while battiirg either third or f i f t h in the lineup. USAC Sponsor May Pull Out Fuel Squabble May Ruin Season MOUNT POCONO, Pa. ( A P ) -- A squabble over fuel allotments threatens the remaining races on the U.S. Auto Club championship circuit. George Bignotti. chief mechanic for the Patrick Racing Team, confirmed Saturday that owner Pat Patrick would pull his three-car entry from future races after Sunday's Schaefer 500 unless allotments arc increased. Some of the other lesser-known teams also are reportedly calling it quits after this race. "We can't run an auto race w i t h the fuel USAC is giving us." Bignotli argued. "It's not a race; it's an economy run. What fun is that? "They say it's because of the e n e r g y crisis. That Just not t r u e t . There never'was any fuel shortage, especially not with the methanol fuel we use." If the three Patrick Eaglc-Of- fies. piloted by Wally Dallenbach, Gordon Johncock and Steve Krisiloff. pull off the circuit, the first race to be affcc- ed would be the Michigan 200 on July 21. "I'm sure George and his team are just blowing off steam." said car owner Roger Penske, who also owns the Michigan track. "But if enough teams don't show up, we just won't have the race. "My track pays for itself wiUi the NASCAR races schedule. We really don't need this kind of trouble." A spokesman for the Patrick team's sponsor, the STP Corp., said: "Mr. Patrick can set fire to all of his cars if he wants to. That's his prerogative; he owns the cars. But I'm sure his sponsor would like to have a voice in the matter." Dallenbach, who appeared unhappy at the prospect he mfght not have a job after Sunday, conceded the fuss might be an attempt to blackmail USAC into alloting more fuel. "NASCAR has already dump- Dodgers Dominate Frisco Giants 6-4 SAN FRANCLSCO (AP) -Reliever Mike Marshall set a major league record with his 1011: consecuSive appearance but the streaking Los Angeles Dodgers needed ninth inning help from three other pitchers to down the Sin Francisco Giants 6-4 Saturday. Marshall, who has appeared in 50 of the Dodgers' 75 games, broke the major league moHc of nine straight pitching appearances he shared with Elroy Face, George Schullz and Tom Dukes. But !hc Giants knocked him nrt in the ninth. Jim Brewer, Geoff Zahn and Charlie Hough came on to get one out apiece and preserve the victto- ry. The Dodgers, who have won seven of their last eight games, took a 1-0 lead in the third on Joe Ferguson's double, pitcher Doug Rau's single and Dave Lopes' sacrifice fly. They added three runs in Ihe fourth following a throwing error by third baseman Dave Kingm'an. Bill Russell's two-run single and a run-scoring single by Rau were the big Wows off Charlie Williams, 1-2. Bill Buckner's triple and Jim Wynn's sacrifice fly made it 5-0 off reliever Tom Bradley in the fifth. Kingman's eighth homer of the baseball season gave the Giants a run off Rau, 6-3, iti the f i f t h . Marshall, who has a 9*3 record and 10 saves, took over for Rau with two on and one out in the sixth. He struck out Kingman and worked out of trouble. But the Giants nicked him for two runs in the eighth on Kingman's two-nut single and then loaded the bases with none out in the ninth, knocking him out. They scored one run on a bases- loaded walk issued by HEAVY DUTY MUFFLER Zahn, but Hough came on to get the final out, H was San Francisco's eighth .oss in the last nine games and second straight under new Manager Wes Westrum. ed its Fuel restrictions. It's time for USAC Lo do the same," he said. Dick King. USAC director of competition, said the matter came up al a Saturday morning mechanics' meeting. But he added, "I don't foresee USAC reconsidering its fuel imitations before the end of .he season." USAC has fig- ired allotments according to the cars getting 1.8 miles per gallon and 280 gallons have been allotted for Sunday's 500- rniler. "That's just not enough," Bignotti insisted. "We need at least 20 gallons more. It's going to he worse at Michigan because our mileage is p o o r e r there. We don't want to go there and look foolish," Johncock and Krisiloff ran out of fuel durirrg this year's Indianapolis 500 after DaJlen- bach dropped out, early with mechanical trouble. Krisiloff was running second two weeks later in the Milwaukee 150 when his fuel allotment ran out with eight laps to go. The two other Patrick cars retired early with mechanical problems, but ajso might not have had enough fuel to finish the race. "George is just figuring wrong," said Grant Kin-g, another chief mechanic. "Twenty mere gallons won't do any good. If we got more fuel, we'd just use more. "If you figure right, you'll have the fuel to finish the race and still be competitive enough to win. Other teams have founc a way to do it." Ben Jipcho Investigated By Kenya NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) -The Kenya Amateur Athleti Association said Saturday will investigate professions .rack star Ben Jipcho's ama .eur earnings in the wake of a American magazine articl quoting the distance star a saying he wao "better off finan cially as an amateur than professional."
