"I wasn't really concerned about the hit, 'althqugh I thought about a no-hitter in the fifth the Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander said. "The hit didn't get me down as much as the run since it made it a one-run game again." Rau allowed two more singles before giving way to relief ace Mike Marshall in the ninth with the Dodgers on top 2-1. And after coming within five outs of a no-hitter, the second-year hurler didn't even figure in the decision. Marshall yielded a game-tying single to Zisk and then became the winning pitcher when Steve Garvey homered leading off the bottom of the ninth, giving the Dodgers a 3-2 victory. Elsewhere in the National League. Philadelphia Phillies held off Atlanta Braves 4-2, St. Louis Cardinals downed San Francisco Giants 4-1, Montreal Expos trounced Houston Astros 8-3 and San Diego Padres edged Chicago Cubs 4-3. DROVE ZISK HOME Rau had allowed only three on walks and one on an Hebner lined a clean single to right field with one out in the eighth. Zisk had drawn a leadoff walk and moved to second on a grounder. Garvey hit his 12th home run of the season on the first pitch from Jim Rooker in the bottom of the ninth. Ron Cey homered for Los Angeles in the seventh. Mike Schmidt's three-run homer, his 12th, and Bob Boone's solo shot produced a four-run third inning that gave Jim Lonborg all the support he needed to keep the Phillies one-half game ahead of runner-up St. Louis in the. National League East. Schmidt's throwing error helped Atlanta to an unearned- run in the second inning and Dave Johnson homered in the fourth. Lou Brock and Tom Hein- tzelman cracked three hits apiece for the Cardinals and Brock stole his 33rd and 34th bases of the season while Sonny Siebert gained his sixth victory with last-out relief help from Orlando Pena. The fans left the fireworks to the baseball learn in Cleveland Wednesday night. Home runs resounded at Municipal Stadium and the result was a 9-3 Cleveland Indians victory over Texas Rangers in relative peace and quiet. "I really liked it when the fans stood up and cheered our boys when they hit their homers." said Cleveland man- ager Ken Aspromonte. "That's the kind of fans we want to come out and see us. They can enjoy our success with us. Those others. I don't ever want to see around." It was a far more civilized scene than Tuesday night when their game was torn apart by a riot. Hundreds of fans, apparently hyped up by "10-cent beer threw debris and flooded the field, chasing the players to cover. The Indians had to forfeit the game. On Wednesday night, only about people showed about one-third of Tuesday night's audience. They were told by the public address announcer that fines would be levied if anyone ran on the playing field. And they cheered the announcement. There were mostly cheers from then on. as Oscar Gamble and Dave Duncan hit three-run homers for the Indians in a seven-run sixth -inning. In other American League games, Baltimore Orioles nipped Kansas City Royals 5-- 4. Oakland A's blasted Detroit Tigers 9-1. California Angels turned back Milwaukee Brew- ers 6-5, Chicago White Sox stopped New York Yankees 7- 6 in 15 innings, and Boston Red Sox defeated Minnesota Twins 5-3. Sex denial MUNICH (Reuter) West Germany's principal expert on sport and sex questions confessed today he was baffled by the insistence of many World Cup team managers that their soccer players abstain from sex before and during the finals from June 13 to July 7. Prof. Manfred Steinbach, in his youth a successful long jumper, told reporters: "In rny opinion five weeks without sex is a completely unnecessary torment for the players."
