Romo came on and induced Harmon Killebrcw In foul out (or the final out. After Romo surrendered a one- out single in the eighth, Forster took over and retired the last five batters, blowing third strikes past Kill e brew and lobby Darwin. Kekich also needed relief and got it from Sparky Lyle after walking the leadoff batter in the eighth, although he was touched for only four hits. "It's like I've been saying for three Kekich said. "It's all mental with me. The first hvo years I was with the Yan- kees I had to worry if I had a spot on the club, then if I would start and if I would make the relation. "When Slan was traded, Ralph said I would replace him in the starting rotation and I began to relax." Bobby Murcer's first hit in 23 at-baLs touched off New York's tliree-run uprising in the fifth inning, featuring Ron Blom- bcrg's run-scoring double and an RBI single hy Rich Me- K'inncy, the man the Yanks ob- tained for Balmsen.
