LA'sSullon Faces Tough Mound Chore OAKLAND (AP) -- Pitcher 'on Button fully realizes he's in do.or-die situation for the Los .ngeles Dodgers tonight, yet he ays calmly: "This is no differ- nl than all the others. It isn't yer until someone share or a ither a winner's share or a oser's share." Sutton, the hottest of the Dodgers' pitchers at the sea- on's end, has won the only Vorld Series game Los Angeles .as captured.

The banks Patriots' Chuck Fairand the Cowboys' Tom and A's in games 3-1. Another ,os Angeles loss and the Series s over. The right-hander has won 12 n a row including two in the National League championship 'layoffs against Pittsburgh and he 3-2 triumph over the A's. ie was 19-9 for the regular sea- on*. "We know we have our backs i the wall," admitted Manager \Valter Alston after Oakland's 5-2 victory Wednesday night. 'But this has been a comeback .earn all season." Asked if he contemplated any ineup changes for tonight's crucial battle in the Oakland Coliseum, he answered calmly: "No, this is the best we've got -- we'll stay the way we are. This is the club that got us here." Winning shares in this World Series could reach about $26,000 per man. the losers receiving about $10,000 less. If Sutton wins tonight, the teams return to Los Angeles for the sixth game on Saturday and Alston faces a decision on who pitches that one. Landry may not give a hoot, but if they are like most football coaches, they'd actually prefer that the oddsmakers and the prognosticates make them underdogs. Most coaches say il makes their job easier -- or al least the psychological part ol Anyway, having gottsn past the introduction for another week, let's pause to report that last week's guesses produced a 10-3 record for an over-all show Louis Coach Don Coryell has is .eeping his players from look- ng ahead to next week and the ematch with Washington ..
