In Game Three Of World Series It's Hunter Vs. Downing OAKLAND (AP) - The'tem- pestuous Oakland A's hope to explode tonight with their bats instead of their tempers in the third game of the 1974 World Series with the Los Angeles Dodgers. "I'm expecting us to break out any day now, but I've been expecting that for six weeks . ... So I don't really know," said Oakland Manager Alvin Dark, whose team lias had more notice recently for hitting people than hitting baseballs. A change in the baiting order might be' just the thing that the A's need to add some punch to their recent Punch and J u d y hilling. Dark, whose team won the' World Series opener with an undistinguished 3-2 victory Saturday in Los Angeles and then lost the second game by the same score, Is thinking about an adjustment 'In his hit- ling alignment. Noting thai the A's face a lefl-handcr in Al · Downing, Dark revealed: "1 might bat Bill North first instead of second. He has more power as a right-handed hitter. I might also move some of the others around in the lineup, too. We've ju,st got to get some more runs." , The A's may not be hitting well lately, but they've certainly ha.d the pitching. And the best on their staff goes tonight, 25 game winner Catfish Hunter. HUNTER RESTED The tobacco-chewing Hunter, well rested sinqe he only pitched to one batter on Saturday after working in last week's American League play- offs, has been embroiled In a salary dispute with Oakland owner Charles 0. Finley. Hunter, mad at Finley because he claims the owner reneged on half of his yearly. $100,000 salary, might make the Dodgers pay for it tonight. The A's fight as well as anybody else, too. The Dodgers, or any other team in baseball, are sedate compared to this flamboyant, aggressive team of odd- halls. , The combative A's started the Series 'out with a bang when pitchers Rollie Fingers and Blue Moon Odom exchanged blows in the clubhouse last week. And during Monday's off-day workout at the Oakland Coliseum, a sports writer was the target of wrath. Detroit Lions Shade San Francisco 17- DETROIT (AP) -- No longer will the cynics chide: "Detroit's got the best 0-4 team in football." Now it's got the best 1-4 team in football. The one victory may not enhance the looks of the record much, but "it beats getting hit in the eye with a sharp stick," Coach Rick Forzano said after Monday's 17-13 key victory over San Francisco. The Lions used a disputed pass interference penally and a key goal line stand lo notch heir first triumph under Forzano. T h e nationally televised game, played before a Tiger Stadium cro\yd of 45,199, had plenty of exciting plays to keep the viewers happy. Among them: BIG PENALTY ~-A 32yard pass interference penally which set up Steve Owens' one-yard touchdown plunge for Detroit in the second quarter. ' --Four interceptions. One was returned 44 yards by Lion cornerback Levi Johnson and led to an Errol Mann field goal. -A 45-yard punt return by Dick Jauron of the Lions lo set ip another TD. --A 64-yard run by 49er rookie Wilbur Jackson to the Detroit one. --The Lions' goal line stand after that run. "We won by a few points .. . We would have made it more out we didn't want to run up the score," Forzano said, grinning. NOLAN DEPARTED San Francisco Coach Dick Nolan rushed off without saying muuii but quarterback Dennis Morrison, making his first NFL start, didn't mind talking about the loss, the 49ers' """' slraight in a 2-3 record. "I was nervous in the afternoon, but when we opened with the passing attack it calmed me," the left-hander said.' "Bul in the third quarter I got more excited than I should have." Detroit picked off three Morrison aerials. One, by line backer Charlie Weaver in the 'irst period, ended a scoring threat. Then there was Johnson's interception in the second quarter, and linebacker Jim Laslavic grabbed another in the final four minutes to thwart a drive at the Lion 10. Morrison finished with 1' completions in 40 attempts for 171 yards, including an 11-yarc pass to Jackson with 33 seconds left for the only San Francisco touchdown. Detroit's Bill Munson hit on 15 of 32 passes for 130 yards, including a 13-yard scoring shol to Larry Walton 15 seconds into the final quarter to clinch the victory. Services Scheduled WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind (AP) -- Services are scheduled here Wednesday for longtinn Purdue assistant football coach and athletic department figure Al Parker. The 57-year-old Parker died Sunday, succumbing to a six month.bout wilh cancer. Braves Allow Aaron To Talk With Brewers Reggie Jackson, Oakland's tar outfielder, verbally ch'al- eiiged Murray Oldcrman, cdi- or of Newspaper Enterprises Association in San Francisco, of an article he wrote anta Braves have given Hank OAKLAND (AP) -- The Al- or u national magazine. Jackion roared out of Ihc balling :age when he saw Olderman ind abused him verbally before 1 crowd of gaping onlookers. Jackson was unhappy about he general lone of Ihe article, vhich dealt with his alleged attle wilh other players for sole leadership of Ihe learn. . Meanwhile, back at the World Series. Downing concentrated m keeping the A's in their pro- ractcd hilling slump. Despite us modest 5-6 season record, MS Angeles Manager Walt Alston feels Ihal Downing can conlinue lo maintain the Dodgers' masterful pitching of late. The A's have managed only 2 hits so far off Dodger pilch- ng, and Ihe formidable Los Angeles arms were equally as ef- eclive in the National League ^layoffs against the Pittsburgh Pirates. NORMAL LINEUP Alston planned no changes, other than going lo his normal ineup for right-handers. In the iirsl two games.. Ihe Dodgers faced southpaws bul since Hunter is on the mound, Alslon will have Willie Crawford in right field inslead of Joe Ferguson. Alston will use the right- landed Ferguson behind home plate instead of Steve Yeager. The Dodgers will need'all the hitting edge they can muster against Hunter, tile premier right-hander in the American League in 1974. Hunter not only won 25 games during the season but atso led the league .with a 2.43 earned run average.

"Titles," Aaron once snapped. "Can you spend titles at a grocery store? Executive vice president, assistant to the executive vice president, what does it mean if it doesn't pay good money? I might become a janitor for big money."
