The seemingly perfect relief pitcher of the Los Angeles Dodgers showed Wednesday night that he's o'nly human while losing a 5-4 decision to the Philadelphia Phillies. Marshall, who has been dazzling in the clutch this season, gave up the winning run on Dave Cash's single in the ninth inning--the first time he's lost in more than a month. He had won 11 games in 14 decisions and posted 13 saves. In his last 18 appearances, Marshall had allowed just 10 earned r u n s in 37.2 innings. In other National. League games, the San Diego Padres trimmed the New York Mets 81; the Chicago Cubs blasted the Cincinnati Reds 11-3; the At- lanta Braves hammered the Pittsburgh Pirates 10-5; the San Francisco Giants turned back the Montreal Expos 4-3 and the Houston Astros nudged the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2.

For College Club Holt Triumphs Again Williams Still Waiting For Angels To Win By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The .California Angels will not lose today. That's not a prediction. Just a little present from the schedule maker. The Angels have an off day today, which should not be confused with off days,' which they've been having most of the season. "Maybe a day off will help," said beleagured California Manager Dick , Williams. "I know it-can't hurt us." The Baltimore Orioles hurt the Angels Wednesday night, blasting them 9-1. It was the Angels' llth straight loss, preserving thetir O-for-10 July slump. Ten of those losses have ome under the command of Villiams, who.was lured back nto baseball by a dollar sign and a lot of-zeroes.-The dollar ign hasn't rubbed off on his layers yet, Just, the zeroes. Elsewhere in the American jeague, the Boston Red Sox ripped the Texas Rangers 3-1; h e Milwaukee B r e w e r s dropped'the Chicago White Sox 6i: the : Minnesota Twins pounded the-Detroit Tigers U-6, and the New York Yankees vhipped the Kansas City Royals 9-4. · BREWERS 6, WHITE SOX 1 Billy 'Champion" pitched no-hit Dal! for 5 1-3 innings and settled for .a'four-bitten '. The Brewers, who had bealen Chicago with last-inning home runs the two previous nights, scored enough 'to win with two runs in the second inning with Don Money's/ RBI single capping the rally. YANKEES. 9, ROYALS 4 The first half of the game belonged to Marty .Pattin. -The second half of the game he- longed to Bobby Murcer. For posterity, the game belongs to New York. The Yankees, retired in order through the first five innings by Pattin, picked up a pair of two- run homers from Murcer.and a two-run shot by Thurman Munson to beat Kansas City. RED SOX 3, RANGERS 1 Bob Montgomery helped with his bat and loot and Reggie Cleveland, 7-S, tossed a six-hitter. On a 2-2 nitch with two out in the fifth,' Montgomery took off for second and Dwight Evans, on third, broke for the plate as Rick Burleson checked ' his swing. Catcher Duke Sims' throw was high and to'the left of second. Cesar Tovar made a. leaping catch and had no play as Evans scored and Montgomery took second, on the double Bases Loaded Opportunity Fizzles Astros Dump Cards Again HOUSTON (AP) - Mike Cosgrove says he doesn't mind pressure situations. The young Houston Astros reliever won his fifth straight game Wednesday night as the Astros edged the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2. It was a pressure situation when he arrived on the mound in the seventh inning but he was equal to the occasion. The score was tied 2-2, the bases were loaded, only one.put and pesky Lou Brock w a s ' a t bat. Cbsgrove made Brock hit into an inning-ending double play, the- fifth of the .night pulled off by the Astros. The Astros then picked up a run in the bottom of the inning and Cosgrove made it stand up for the victory. "I don't mind coming in in pressure situations," Cosgrove, 23, said. "I'd ratber be'a starter but being a reliefer is a bigger challenge." Cosgrove said he had never faced Brock in person until he faced him in the seventh. "The only place I'd seen him .was on television," he said. The Cardinals took a 2-0 lead with runs off Houston starting pitcher Larry Dierker in the first and second innings. Bake McBride singled one home in the first and Jimmy Dwyer led off the second with his second home, run of the. season. Houston tied the score in the second inning on a ' r u n scoring double by Doug Rader and a force-out grounder by Dierker. Singles in the seventh inning by Greg Gross and 'Roger Metzger produced the winning run for Houston. Gross singled and stole second and scored on Metzger's hit up the middle. The victory was the 10th in the last 13 games for the Astros and Manager Preston Gomez said the most encouraging fac- tor in the past few games has seen the Astros ability to score runs after two outs. We need more key hits like that to win our share of ball games," he said.

By GRANT HALL TIMES Sports Editor BENTONVILLE -- Brian Holt gave up just two infield singles and one Texas Leaguer Wednesday night, pitching Fayetteville College Club to a 5-2 win over Bentonville.
