On Jackson's Homer, Fingers / Pitching A,s Win 3-2 In Series Opener LOS ANGEU5S (AP) - Meg,. gle Jackson, hobbled by n painful leg Injury Hint made him u doubtful starter until just before gnmethnc, walloped n 400" foot home run Saturday, liclp- · ing the Onklnnd A's to n 3-2 "' victory over the Los Angeles 1 Dodgers in the opening game of the 1374 World Series. ;. The victory giwc the defending world champion A's a 1-0 ^ lend in the besl-of-seven Series : which continues Sunriny when ' Vida Blue pitches for Oakland ngalnsl the Dodgers' Don Sut.' ton. With a record Dodger Sla- : dium crowd of 55,974 watching, ·; Los Angeles repeatedly threatened lo break the game open, ;,- outhilting the A's 11-6. But when it was over, the " opening game of baseball's 71st EWorld Series belonged to Oak: land, mostly because of Jack; son's homer and the relief "pitching of Rollie Fingers. · Jackson, who pulled his right . hamstring muscle during the · American League playoffs 'against Baltimore, had said he would play in this World Scries · if he had lo do it in a wheelchair. As he loosened up before the "game, he told sports writers be felt about 85 per cent of his full · capacity. ; But when A's Manager Alvin -Dark presented the lineup card, Reggie, Most Valuable Player ' in the 1973 World Series, was in right field, batting fourth lor Oakland. In Hie second Inning, he showed why. Will) the count one ball nnd one strike, Dodger starter Andy Messcrsmitli made n mistake on Jnckson nnd Reggie unloaded on Ihe pitch, sending it soaring into the left-center field seats for Ihe game's first run. That gave A's starter Ken HolUman a quick lead and, in the fifth inning, the Oakland left-hander helped his team to another run. Will) one out, Holtzman ripped a ground ball pnst firsl base and into left field for a double. It came on only the second trip lo the plate all season by an Oakland pitcher, who sej- dom bals because of the Amcrl can League's clesignated-hilter rule. The first trip had come two innings earlier, when KoHxman walked. With Bert Campaneris at bat, tfessersmith uncorked a wild }ilch and Holtzman advanced :o third. The count crept to two nails, two strikes and, sudden- y, Holtzman broke for home on a daring suicide squeeze play. Sampaneris coolly bunted the ball and the A's had their second r u n . The Dodgers had reached Hollzman for hits in every in ning, leaving runners on base in the first four. In the fifth inning, they caught up with the Oakland starter and knocked him out.

CtimpnncM'is tried to short-hop he ball hut was unable lo mndlc It and Lopes was safe on the error. The Dodgers, who seemed anxious to Oakland catclicr Kay Fosse's arm, sent Lopes on a hll-and-run play and Bill Buckner rifled a single to right. Jackson charged the ball, hod rouble picking it up and third ase coach Tommy LaSorda jegan waving furiously lor Lopes lo keep running. Jackson recovered quickly but Lopes had lhat exlra slop and. when Jackson heaved a wild throw back to the infield, Lopes scored easily. Wlien Jimmy Wynn followed with a walk. Dark came out to get Holtzman, who had surrendered seven hits in 4 1-3 in nings. Out o f ' H i e bullpen came Fin gers, Ihe reliever who was involved, in Oakland's'latest clubhouse scrap Friday. Doctors took five stitches in liis scalp after he had battled follow pitcher John "Blue Moon" pdoni, who sprained his ankle in Ihe fracas. Fingers struck out Steve Garvey and then, after hitting Joe Ferguson with a pitch to loac thet bases, he squirmed oul ol trouble by getting Ron Gey to fly out. In the eighth, the A's got Fin gers another run--it turned ou^ to be the winning one--and have had more except or a remarkable throw by ·iBlil fielder Ferguson. Campaneris opened with a ·Jnglc and Bill North bunted, noving him to second. Next, Sinulo bounced to Ccy at third ase. He made a good stop on he ball bul threw II away for an error. Campaneris scored .us Dando raced all the way to third on he error. Then Jackson lifted a !ly ball lo right center. Wynn and Ferguson converged on the ball .with Bando lagging up, Al the last instant, Ferguson cut in front of Wynn, grabbed the ball and threw a strike to catcher Steve Yeager, reliring Bando for the double play. The throw and tag play was .0 startling lhat the Dodgers didn't even realize the side had been retired. They stood there tor almost half a minute before being waved in by the umpires. Fingers worked his way out of another two-out, two-on jam in the eighth, leaving the 10th and llth Dodgers stranded on base. He steamed inlo Ihe ninlh, protecting his 3-1 edged. With two oul, Wynn socked a long drive that barely made it into the left-center field seals just beyond Ihe leaps of North and Joe Rudi. That made it 3-2 and, when Steve Garvey followed with line single lo right, Fingers was finished. Out of the bullpen came Jim 'Catfish" Hunter, who had not etievcd all season. He fell behind 2-0 before Ferguson swung and missed at his next pitch. Then a foul ball nude it 2-2 and Ferguson vavcd at the third strike, giv njj Ihe A's their first-game vic- ory. As (he A's raced off the field, jinch-runner Tom Paciorek moved sadly to Iho Dodgers' dugout, the 12th and last Los Angeles runner left on base.
