"We've captured the momen- ; turn that we lost in the first - 'game," said Joe Ferguson, hero of Sunday's 3-2 victory 'over the A's that tied the 1974 "World Series at one game each. . T h e A's won the first game by .the same score. Hiding the crest of their dra- matic dium, the National League champions prepared to face the A's Tuesday in Game 3 at the Oakland Coliseum -- a seven- hour car ride from Los Angeles. Alston Plans To Change LA Lineup; Al Downing Will Challenge Hunter victory at Dodger Sta-lused Al Downing against Ca · - - - fish Hunter, the A's formidable 25-game winner. Explaining his choice of Downing over Doug Rau, normally the Dodgers' No. 3 pitcher, Manager Walt Alston noted: "Downing's -oeen pitching better than Rau the last few times out. It's as simple as that." The way the A's have been hitting of late, it may not take much lo slop them, anyway. "We've been having a hard time producing runs," said Al Dark, Manager of the American League champions. "We'll take them any way we can get them." The A's were not able to score until the ninth inning Sunday. Shut out by Don Sutton through the first eight, the A's needed some breaks in the last inning bases. Dodgers' Best Shot Evens Up World Series OAKLAND (AP) - "They ,jave us thoir best shot, and if that's the best they have, they're in trouble," said the Oakland A's Bill North after the Los Angeles Dodgers squared the 1974 World Series. , ,, ,, _ ,, _ ,, . , , Los Angeles right-hander Don prov1din g Sutlon picked up his 12th con- r ou oh s hod secutive victory, 3-2, Sunday, · with relief help fr6m Mike Marshall, but the Dodgers must turn to something of a longshot Tuesday night when they start Downing here in Game Three. "We're going to win the series," said North, who thinks 20-game winner Catfish Hunter will pitch the A's into a 2-1 lead Tuesday night. . Downing, 5-6 this season, was a member of the A's staff briefly in 1970, the year before he surprised the baseball world by becoming a . 20-game winner with the Dodgers. He came up wilh the right assortment of pitches to make up for the fastball he had lost. NO FAST BALL "Sutton isn't a fastball pitcher, either," said the'-A's Reggie Jackson when asked if he look- d forward to Downing's. pitch- after facing 20-game winner Andy Messersmith and Sutton the opening two games at js Angeles. "I don't mean to knock Suton," said North. "He's a good itcher, and did very well gainst us. but it was still a 3-2 game. With a break here or here, we could have won it." The A's looked back at two )ig scoring threats that fizzled Sunday, the first when North lit into a double play with-the ases loaded and one out in the eighth inning. "I thought I had a hit there. It was the best ball I hit in two days,' said North of the hard grounder fielded by Dodger shortstop Bill Russell, who stepped on second and threw into the dirt toward first base. "I thought the ball would go up the middle, but Russell was breaking that way. Then his Ilirow hit 10 feet in front of Steve Garvey. If it had gone through him, we still would have had two" runs," North Cowboys Slipping Out Of Contention Pats, Cards Still Unbeaten By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The New Kngland Patriots and St. Louis Cardinals arc still having the time of their lives.

'Basically, if he can p u t ' the Sutton, a 19-game winner this year, hit Sal Bando with a pitch leading off the ninth and then gave up a check-swing double to Reggie Jackson that eluded Los Angeles third baseman Ron Cey. Alston brought in strongman Mike Marshall from the bullpen at this point, but baseball's premier relief pitcher didn't exactly look in top f o r m right away. He gave up a two-run single to Joe Rudi, and the A's were 'back in business. Herb Washington, Oakland's famous designated runner, took over for Rudi at first base after Gene Tenace struck out and every one of the 55,989 fans at sunny Dodger Stadium knew what he was going to do. So did the Dodgers. "It's my job to hold him and to give the catcher the best chance to throw him out," said Marshall, cognizant of the fact that Washington would try to steal second. Washington had thoughts of added. TOUGH HOP "It was the toughest hop possible," said North in tribute to Garvey's backhanded pickup al first base which protected a 3-0 Dodger lead.

Finley every .time he inserts Washington, decided to let the former Michgian State track star try to steal second off reliever Mike Marshall. Washington never got near second, cut down at first on a pickoff throw by Marshall. "I took us out of a big in- ling," said the sprinter who once took a class under scholar-athlete Marshall at Michigan State. . " - ' : ' , " : ' " . . . ' .

The San Francisco 49ers have a 2-2 record, but seem to be on the downside. Whether those trends continue will be determined tonight when the National Conference rivals meet at 9 p.m., EOT, in their nationally televised game at Tiger Stadium. "I still think we can We can still be a factor in our division race," says first-year Lions Coach Rick Forzano, whose team has lost its games by only 14 total points. We're improving offensively Atlanta. In losing to Chicago, Minnesota, Green Bay and Los Angeles, the Lions have steadily improved -- on paper. Their yardage totals went from 156 to 162 to 290 to 201. · The offense was disastrous the first two game averaging just 2.C and 2.9 yards a play. That increased to 4.9 and 5.3 the last two games. They managed just nine first downs in each of the first two jarries but boosted that to. 11, then 17 last week. Detroit's offense has scored only four touchdowns. However, the defense has given up only * x ' ' Perhaps to the Lions benefit tonight is that San Francisco is going with left-hander Dennis Morrison at quarterback. It wil he the former. Kansas State player's first pro start and only second regular season game. Miami Coach Don Shula would have preferred to see him calling Washington's signals again. Instead, he saw Jurgensen engineer a seven-play, 60-yard drive in a minute and a half that ended with a six - yard touchdown pass to Larry Smith. Vikings 51, Oilers 10 Minnesota had been forced in the past three games to scramble for victories so the trampling of Houston was more than just another notch in the win column, according to Coach Bud Grant. "You can call it » morale day," he said. Fran Tarkenton passed for 274 yards and three touchdowns in less than Ihree quarters of play. Packers 17, Ram« 6 Green Bay intercepted four Los Angeles passes -- three of them by linebacker Ted Hendricks -- and turned two of the thefts into scores. But it was Jon Staggers who gave Green. Bay the lead for good, running back a second-period punt 68 yards for a touchdown and a 73 edge. ' ' Falcons 13, Bears 10 The Falcons limited Chicago to only 28 yards in the first half and 77 after three periods before the Bears struck on a long touchdown pass and added a late field goal to gain a 10-10 lie. That left Ihe oulcome in the hands -- or, more precisely, on the foot -- of Atlanta's Nick Mike-Mayer. He acknowledged he was nervous when he trotted on the field with 10 seconds remaining, "but as soon as I kicked it I knew it was good," he said of the 31-yard boot. Bills 27, Colts 14 Safety Neal Craig picked off one of Bert Jones' few passes late in the first half and ran it back 55 yards for Ihe touchdown that put the Bills ahead to stay at 10-7. Jones passed for 44 yards -but was sacked five times for 43 yards in losses.

Downing draws the . unenviable chore of facing the A's ace Catfish Hunter, a 25Jgame winner. After that the Dodgers can go hack to their one-two right-handed duo -- Andy Messersmith and Sutlon. Allhough he gave recent performance as his reason for choosing Downing, Alston did make the choice over a couple of youngsters, Doug Rau and Geoff Zahn, who had taken over Downing's spot in the regular season rotation. : Rau was the loser in the third game of the championship playoffs as Pittsburgh bombed him out in the first inning. Ferguson looked ahead saying, "We've recaptured the mo rncnlum we lost in that first game and in a short series, momentum is important." stealing second anyway, hut didn't get very far. Marshall, one of the best pickoff men in the business, nailed the flashy runner with a perfect throw to first baseman Steve Garvey. The entire Oakland team appeared stunned after that play. The last batter. Angel Mangual, went down without a whimper, striking out on Marshall fast- balls. While the A's waited until the late innings to produce the drama, the Dodgers produced the runs in the early and middle innings. A whistling single to center by Steve Yeager drove home Ron Cey with the first run of the game in the second inning and then Ferguson made it 3-0 with his 420-foot rocket shot with Garvey aboard in the sixth. Professional Football Davis Cup Triumph NASSAU, Bahamas -- The United Stales clinched the first round of the 1975 Davis Cup lennis competition when Erik van Dille nand Charles Pasarell soundly defeated a Commonwealth Carribean doubles team 6-2, 6-1, 6-1. It was worth $24,000. The previous week Irwin had picked up $9,000 in an international medal play event at Lac o me, France. Irwin, U.S. Open champion, upset all the bookies' odds with his decision over Player, who was bidding to win the Piccadilly for Ihe sixth time in 11 years. Everyone' said the little South African knew · the 6,997yard, par-73 course so well he could not lose. But Player, after a one-un- derpar morning round, went off form, hooking his drives and missing short putts. Irwin plugged steadily away and hit a stream of three woods from the 'airways onto the greens. Irwin said he owed a lot to lis Scottish caddie, Ian Conors. "Gary knew the course much better than I did, but so did Connors," the American said. "In fact he knows it backwards.

A loss would virtually eliminate Detroit from playoff hopes in the Central Division race, while the 49ers aren't nearly m such bad, shape since they won their first two games. "Ever since I've been with the 49ers we have had a tough time with the Lions and it always seems to be tougher in Detroit," San Francisco Coach Dick Nolan says. ; . "We have done fairly well defensively so far, but the Lions have enough weapons to make this our toughest test."
