Rose, of Cincinnati Reds decked Harrelson, of the Mets in a playoff game. All seems forgotten. Candlestick wind bothered Cards THE ASSOCIATED PRESS San Francisco Giants literally won in a breeze Thursday. Aided by Candlestick Park wind, the Giants scored seven runs in the fourth inning and went on to beat St. Louis Cardinals 9-5. "Candlestick is by far the toughest park to play outfield in the National League." said St. Louis centre fielder Luis Melendez. Minor ball The Twins were handed their first loss of the season as the Canucks outlasted the league leaders 18-16 at Lakeside Thursday night. Todd Fisher earned the mound win giving up II hits while Calvin Byam took the loss after allowing eight safeties. Randy Baldry paced the winners with the bat as he stroked a double and two singles while Mark Dumont chipped in with a game- winning triple. Byam aided his own cause poking a home run, triple and double while M. Oviat added a pair of singles. In a Farm League match at Lakeside, the Cardinals whipped the Astros 16-5. Rod Crofton was the winning pitcher with seven strikeouts while R. Pelham suffered the loss. Crofton and Brent Baldry led the winners at the plate with four hits apiece. Gordon Melynk held the Astros to three hits and carried the Pirates to an easy 5-0 victorj- at Norcrest last night. Jamie Coghlin was tagged with the loss after issuing nine hits, four to Rodney Tomita and two to Melynk. Brian Megalla rapped a double and single for the losers while team-mate Coghlin added a double. Ian Lowe walloped a grand slam home run and won a pitcher's duel against John Wilson to lead the Rockets to a slim 9-7 decision over the Hawks in Lakeside Farm League action last night. Russell Syme managed a double in a losing cause. The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE Melendez lost a fly ball dur- ing that wild fourth inning and it cost the Cardinals three runs. Frustrated over Gary Matthews' wind-blown double with the bases loaded. Melendez noted: "All you can go by is the sound of the ball hitting the bat. It sounded hard hit. so I started back. But the wind held it up and I ran as hard as I could but couldn't get to it." The wind also pestered St. Louis starter Lynn McGlothen, who held a 3-0 lead before he was blown out of the game in the fourth. "I had great stuff and when I got that 3-0 lead, I thought I was in said McGlothen, a former American Leaguer. "But I just couldn't adjust to the wind." In the other National League games. New York Mets nudged Cincinnati Reds 4-3: Houston Astros beat Montreal Expos 4-0; Los Angeles Dodgers blanked Pittsburgh Pirates 6-0 and Chicago Cubs beat San Diego Padres 5-1. Lou Brock's walk, run- scoring doubles by Torn Heintzelman and Reggie Smith and Joe Torre's RBI single produced a 3-0 lead off Mike Caldwell in the first inning as St. Louis chased the Giants" ace left-hander. One-out singles by Gary Thomasson and Bruce Miller sparked the seven-run fourth off McGlothen. 7-3. John Milner hit a leadoff home run against reliever Pedro Borbonin the eighth in- ning, lifting New York over Cincinnati. Milner's shot, his ninth of the season, travelled 420 feet and broke a 3-3 tie after the Mets had come from behind with two runs in the seventh on Cleon Jones' single to even the game. Borbon's pitch to the Mets" first baseman in the eighth was a misplaced fastball. Said the relief pitcher: "It's supposed to go out. Instead it goes in." Lee May hit two bases- empty home runs and Larry Dierker pitched a three-hitter, pacing Houston over Montreal. May opened the fourth inning with a home run and then hit another one. his ninth of the baseball season, in the sixth. Both blasts were off Montreal right hander Steve Renko.. 3-6. The Astros scored two runs in the second inning when Doug Rader produced an RBI double and later scored on a wild pitch.

But that was before Mike Hegan. Hegan. a newcomer to the Milwaukee bench, laced a two-run pinch single Thursday first successful Brewer pinch-hit in 24 attempts this season, and the Brewers dumped California Angels 9-7. Elsewhere in the American League. Texas Rangers dropped Cleveland Indians 6-2 and New York Yankees downed Chicago White Sox 5- 1. In a pinch, the last person you'd call on would be a Mil- waukee pinch-hitter. But Cali- fornia manager Bobby Winkles left the Brewers little choice. "I knew they didn't have any right-handed hitters left on the bench except Bob Collucio." said Winkles, explaining why he replaced right-handed pitcher Skip Lockwood for lefty John Cumberland in the seventh in- ning. "I knew Collucio had been hurt and I wasn't sure he was able to hit." Milwaukee manager Del Crandall. who later confirmed that Collucio was unable to hit. was forced to send up the left-handed-hitting Hegan. Hegan had never faced Cumberland before, but he consulted his team-mates. "They told me he has a big breaking ball, so I tried to lean up to the said Hegan. recently acquired from New York Yankees. "In that situation. 1 wasn't trying for a home run. 1 just wanted to make sure he didn't strike me out." Jackie Brown threw a big curve at the Geveland In- dians-they wanted fastballs and he fed them something considerably slower. "I don't think I have any special speil over the said the Texas pjtcher who blanked Cleveland 3-0 last week. "They are basically a fastball- hitting team and my best pitch is a curve bail. It's just coincidence that I've beat them twice in a row. The two games were probably my best of the year." Alex Johnson knocked in four runs, two of them in a three-run Texas seventh, in support of Brown, who pitched a seven-hitter. Two bouts in A's clubhouse MILWAUKEE (AP) Reggie Jackson and Billy North of Oakland Athletics fought twice in the clubhouse before Wednesday night's American League baseball game in Detroit, it was reported Thursday. Jackson's right shoulder was injured when he was wrestled to the floor and struck a metal dressing stall. The outfielders have been on bad terms for a month since Jackson accused North of not hustling to first on an infield grounder. Vida Blue and Blue Moon Odom separated the outfielders in their first clash, but three minutes later they started fighting again and Jackson received Jhe shoulder injury. Sal Bando and Ray Fosse puiled the two apart in their second encounter. Jackson applied an ice pack to his shoulder and started the game but left after 5'-z innings after going hitless in four trips. He said the shoulder had nothing to do with his leaving. "It's very bad." Jackson said of his relationship with North. "I don't think it will ever be resolved, although I've tried to make peace at least six times." he told the Oakland Tribune. baskets Bedding Plants Cnoose from a good selection of popular flowers including Petunias.
