The loss ended a nine game winning Streak for the dodgers Don Sutton. 21-10. Phils reds use heavy Wood by the associated press Don t look for much in the Way of finesse when the National league playoffs begin. The Philadelphia Phillies and Cincinnati reds have a More Basic approach to the games bludgeon the opposition. With Mike Schmidt and grog Luzinski swinging the big bats for the phils and George Foster and Joe Morgan doing the same for yesterday from Page 4c Davidson s record was changed to 4-0-1.

North Davidson edged the Mooresville Blue devils 20-13 Randy Cook and Tim Ford scored for the Blue devils while Danny Thomas ran for two and passed to Mike Maxwell for the Black Knight scores. The reds the outfielders on both clubs figure to spend at least some of their time with their necks craned watching baseballs Fly Over a variety of Walls both teams of course have More going for them than raw Power. The phils appear to have an Edge a a slim one anyway in pitching with a staff headed by Steve Carlton but one of Carlton s drawbacks Only heightens one of Cincinnati s other assets the tall left hander never seems to be Able to hold a runner on base with the reds that could be fatal. Cincinnati can steal almost any base it wants or take the extra base on the most routine of hits. But the real keys to this bestow five series starting next saturday in Philadelphia could be a couple of factors which will never show up in a Box score and both of them seem to favor the reds for one thing. Sparky Anderson Cincinnati s Placid White haired manager has the High respect of his players he is the off the Field Leader the Way Pete Rose is considered the on the Field spark plug. Philadelphia s embattled Danny Ozark conversely has taken a lot of heat. Even when the phils have been winning he s had to shut out the sounds of wolves howling for his hide. He s had to spend a lot of time trying a sometimes unsuccessfully to command his players full attention. It has been said by some in Philadelphia the boo Bird capital of the world that the phils have won despite his managing not because of it.

In 1964 they staged one of the great collapses in baseball history and they nearly repeated that this year seeing a massive 16-game Lead virtually vanish before pulling themselves together they barely managed to Deal with that pressure How will they Deal with playoff pressure0 everyone can guess How the reds will Deal with it. They be had to Deal with it in four of the past six years so they re masters in that department. And they dealt with it just Fine last year blitzing Pittsburgh in three straight for the no Flag then beating Boston in seven games to win their first world series in 35 years. The phils have never won one Baity h Kinney Wii pc i but that s All history and no team Ever won a title relying on its laurels. Therefore going into the final weekend of regular season play Here is who the clubs will be relying on at first base the reds Are sure to have Tony Perez the same can t be said for Dick Allen of the phils Perez hit and run production have fallen off a bit this year but hell still provide consistency and a Good Glove Allen if he plays will be a threat not As much As in the past to see phils on 9c Yarborough from Page 6c Wilkesboro speedways banked five eighths of a mile Asphalt track.
