' Jackson, who pulled his right hamstring muscle during the 'American League playoffs ·'against Baltimore, had said he ·would play in this World Series 'if he had to do it in a wheel- 'chair. " As he loosened up before the 'game, he told sports writers he ;felt about 85 per cent of his full ·capacity. : But when A's Manager Alvin iDark presented the lineup card, Reggie, Most Valuable Player ^in the 1973 World Series, was in ·right field, batting 'fourth for inning, he With the count one ball and one strike, Dodger starter Andy Messcrsmith made a mistake on Jackson and Reggie unloaded on the pitch, sending it soaring into the left-center field seats for the game's first run. That gave A's starter Ken Holtzman a quick lead and, in the fifth inning, the Oakland left-hander helped his team to another run. With one out, Holtzman ripped a ground ball past first base and into left field for a double. It came on only the second trip to the plate all season by an Oakland pitcher, who seldom bats because of the American League's designated-hitter rule. The first trip had come two innings earlier, when Holtzman T walked. I With Bert Campaneris at bat, VTrccnrcmif h 'itnnnT-l/n/1 a t i r i l f l l With hit a one out, bouncer Davey Mopes to shortstop. Campaneris tried to short-hop the ball but was unable to handle it and Lopes was safe on the error. The Dodgers, who seemed anxious to test Oakland catcher Ray on Fosse's arm, sent Lopes hit-and-run play and Bill Buckner rifled a single to right, Jackson charged the ball, had trouble picking it up and third base coach Tommy LaSorda began waving furiously for Lopes to keep running. Jackson recovered quickly but Lopes had that extra step and, when Jackson heaved a wild throw back to the infield, Lopes scored easily. Whop Jimmy Wynn followed with a walk, Dark came out to get Holtzman, who had surrendered seven hits in 4 1-3 in nings.

The count crept to two balls, two strikes and, suddenly, Holtzman broke for home on a daring suicide squeeze play. Campaneris coolly bunted the ball and the A's had their second run. The Dodgers had reached Holtzman for hits in every inning, leaving runners on base in the first four. In the fifth inning, they caught up with the Oakland starter and knocked him out. house scrap Friday. Doctors took five stitches in his scalp after he had battled fellow pitcher John "Blue Moon" Odom, who sprained his ankle in the fracas. Fingers struck out Steve Gar- vcy and then, after hitting Joe Ferguson with a pitch to load Uict bases, he squirmed out of trouble by getting Ron Cey to fly out, In the eighth, the A's got Fingers another" run--it turned oul to he the winning one--and would have had more except 'or a remarkable throw by right fielder Ferguson, Campaneris opened with a single and Bill North bunted, noving him to second. Next, 3ando bounced to Cey at third aase. He made a good stop on the ball but threw it away for an error. Campaneris scored as Bando raced all the way to third on ;he error. Then Jackson lifted a fly ball to right center. Wynn and Ferguson converged on the ball with Bando tagging up. At the last instant, Ferguson cut in f r o n t of Wynn, grabbed the ball and threw a strike to catcher Steve Yeager, retiring Bando for the double play. The throw and lag play was so startling that the Dodgers didn't even realize the side had been retired. They stood there for 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 into the ninth, protecting his 3-1 edged. With two out, Wynn socked a long drive that barely made ij; into the left-center field seats, just beyond the leaps of North and Joe Rudi. That made it 3-2 and, when Steve Garvey followed with a line single to right, Fingers was finished. Out of the bullpen came Jim "Catfish" Hunter, who had not 'elieved all season. He fell behind 2-0 before Ferguson swung and missed at his next pitch. Then a foul ball made it 2-2 and Ferguson waved at the third strike, giving the A's their first-game victory.
