The duel for the pennant now oines down to .a three-game erics in Baltimore afler the rioles won the opening game Oakland and the A's bounced ack to balance it Sunday. ' ' W e ' r e pretty evenly alched" said Baltimore Manger Earl Weaver fitter about dozen of his Birds went irough a voluntary light work- ut Monday. The A's arrived in town Monay night and Manager Al lark agreed with Weaver's rogiwsis. "There's no way to size this cries up" said Dark. "They're wo even ball clubs. The one hat gets the best pitching and he breaks will win." That added up to four incarned runs tor Oakland and eft Weaver talking to himself. Today's opposing pitchers lave been here before. Palmer and Blue tangled twice in the 1973 playoffs with Baltimore winning both' games. In the opener of that series Palmer shut out Oakland white Blue was kayoed in the first inning. In Game 4 it was Palmer's turn for an early shower but the Orioles overcame a 4-0 deficit to beat Blue again. That scries was won by Oakland in five games and this one has had the same pattern the After Splashy Start WFL Now Faces Financial Woes By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS i Inflation is on the verge of sacking two World Football ^eague franchises but the new professional football in town, hough .battered and slightly deflated, is still hoping an injection of fresh funds will fill it up again. Sport is recognized as a business, business is recognized as far from booming and the WFL recognizes it must do something about two of its biggest lia'bilites -- the Jacksonville Sharks and the Detroit Wheels. WFL Commissioner G a r y Davidson, who pushed infant hockey and basketball leagues out into the world in less-troubled financial times, finds two of his football clubs on the brink of financial extermination today. "Present ownership has been unable to meeliflnsnclal obliga : tions for^several weeks and the league can no longer carry the team's operation and player contracts unless financial sup port comes forth in the tw cities," Davidson said. As a result, the WFL ar nounced Monday that thi week's games involving the De troit Wheels and the Jackson ville Sharks have' bee.n ' po's poned. Their' scheduled' opp nents, the Florida Blazers an Chicago Fire, will square o Wednesday instead. "That these two clubs ar having financial difficulty a this time would come as no su prise to people in the husine. world," Davidson said. -"As said when we started la spring, economic conditions the country would be importai to our degree of success.'-' Now the league is a couple of benefactors to out the two clubs that seem be going down for the thii time. · o teams followed in 1973 th Baltimore winning the st game and the A's taking o. 2. There is however one poriant difference. In 1973 teams moved West to play o final three games in Oak- mi. This year they came asl. The Orioles think that's ipi'otant.

Blue was a workhorse for the 's compiling a 17-15 record :id hurling 2821-3 innings sec- nd on the club only to Hunter. Palmer spent 54 days on !he disabled list because of an inflamed nerve in his elbow and struggled to .a mediocre 7-12 record. Me was 4-4 after returning to the Orioles rotation in August. And doubt lingers over his condition. After today the teams were expected to return to their first- game pitchers for Game 4. That would mean Cueltar and Hunter although Dark left his options open saying "I'm nol sure about it." If the' series goes to a fifth game Thursday Dark, was certain to use HolUmaa who did such a masterful job on. Sun day. Weaver hedged ! betweer McNally and Grimsley.
