But all the Texas manager had was an early shower. It didn't matter because the Rangers beat Cleveland Indians 3-2 Wednesday night.

UMP UNIMPRESSED "Perry pitches that way all the time and never goes to his said the umpire. "I ex- amined the ball on six different occasions and didn't find any- thing." Herzog just shook liis head. "There it he said, dis- playing a greasy ball as evi- dence. "The umpires in this league just want to stay out of he stormed. "I don't blame Perry for doing it, it's made him a very good pitcher." The Rangers beat Perry in the ninth inning wilh Dave Nel- son's one-out single chasing home the winner.

Rico Petrocelli of Boston and Califor- nia's Jeff Torborg exchanged punches before order was re- stored. Before it was through, Bos- ton's Luis Tiant and Clyde Wright of the Angels had ex- changed dustoff pitches prompt- ing a mound conference be- tween plate umpire Larry McCoy and the two managers.
