Pittsburgh manager Danny Murtaugh disclosed Monday that his No. 1 winner, right-han- der Dock Ellis, may be through for the playoffs because of an aching elbow. Ellis, who won 19 games dur- ing the regular season and went five innings as the Pirates evened the series at 1-1 with a 94 victory in the second game Sunday at San Francisco, is going to be examined by a doc- tor. owling GARY TUNBRIDGE Bowler-of-the-month CAPRI BOWL, the initial bowler-of-the-month awards go to a pair of on-the-beam performers who really turned on the steam in September Gary Tunbridge took the men's laurels with some of the most consistent bowl- ing seen here, there or any- where he's currently sporting a .274 average in Gordie's and has already reeled off a pair of 900 tri- pies, rolling 932 and 935 and his 403 is so far the only 400 game of the sea- son and the highest score rolled at Capri during the 1971-72 campaign he's confining his action this year to only one league May Hiebert got the nod as the women's bowler-of- tlie-month with some fancy pin battering in Green's Shoes and Nu-Mode Homes she cut loose for triples of 813, 809 and 800. had a single of 325 and is cur- rently hitting the high spots with a 240 average in Green's and 235 in Nu-Mode.

"We're not going to take a chance on injuring him career- wise for the sake of one said Murtaugh, who sent spot starter Nelson Briles 8-4 out to face the Giants' 18-game winner Juan Marichal today. WILL USE BLASS Murtaugh plans to use first- game starter and loser S'teve Blass in Wednesday's fourth game against San Francisco's Gaylord Perry. He had Ellis in mind if a fifth game is neces- sary Thursday, or might use him Wednesday. Perry was a 5-4 winner in the first game Sat- urday. Ellis wasn't happy with the scheduled visit to the doctor. 'Hell, the s e a s o n 's almost he commented. "There's no sense in seeing a doctor now." The controversial Ellis was the centre of Pittsburgh's day of rest Monday. He rapped Pir- ates' management as cheap- skates, saying he had to spend out of his pocket while the team was in San Francisco last weekend to get a hotel bed big enough to accommodate him. He also said the Pirates should have hired a bigger airplane. "The management don't de- serve to win the pennant; don't deserve to win the World Series but we're going to win be- cause we're the best he said. Murtaugh counted upon power to carry the Pirates against the Giants' superior pitching. He's hoping that Willie Stargell, the major league's home run cham- pion with 48, but O-for-9 in the first two games of the playoffs, finds the range. First baseman Bob Robertson, who is 6 for 9, including three home runs and a double Sunday, has been the big hitter in the playoffs for Mur- taugh thus far. San Francisco manager Char- lie Fox, who has a few sluggers in Willie Mays, Willie McCovey and Bobby Bonds, is willing to concede the Pirates their power. "In any contest it's who has the Fox said Monday as he and Murtaugh sal in ad'- ioining rocking chairs in Mur- laugh's stadium office. "You can have all the hitting you want, just give me the pitchers. I don't believe in that psychol- ogical edge home field. I've got the edge, I've got Marichal." The 32-year-old Marichal has been nursing a sore hip, injured when he collided Sept. 26 on the baseline in Cincinnati. While the hip isn't ]00 per cent, Marichal says he doesn't expect it to bother him. Marichal is 25-10 lifetime against Pittsburgh and 1-1 this season. The 28-year-old Briles took heat treatments Monday for his right thigh, which stiffened dur- ing a three-inning sting against Philadelphia last T h u r s d a y. Murtaugh says Briles did the job coming down the stretch. "He earned the third job on the manager declared. The pressure shouldn't bother Briles, a six-year veteran who won once and lost one in World Series competition with St. Louis Cardinals before being traded to Pittsburgh last winter. Palmer, one of his four 20-game winners. "We want to get it over with if we Weaver said Mon- day. He added that he wasn't counting on a sweep. Williams admitted that he had said, after the Athletics had clinched in the American League West Division, that thf Orioles wouldn't win in three straight, but he pointed out: "You haven't heard me say il the last two days." Powell almost did not make the second game because of a reinjured right hand which was hit by a pitch late in the season and strained while sliding in Sunday's 5-3 victory. In fact, the 260-pound slugger who had given left-hander Mike Cuellar a 2-0 lead with a home run in the third inning, Wed to bunt before he hit his clinching, two-run homer in the eighth. "Earl told me if you can't swing the bat, lay one said Powell, who said he couldn't grip the bat well. The left-handed slugger fouled off a bunt attempt before homering to right-centre field. "Even though his hands hurt he looks like 900 pounds up there, and he can said Hunter, who also yielded ho- mers to Brooks Robinson and Ellie Hendericks. OAKLAND HAS CHANCES The 34-year-old Cuellar gave up leadoff doubles in the second and sixth innings and a leadoff single in the third but the Ath- letics couldn't cash in. Oak- land's only run came in the fourth on S'al Bando's double and Dave Duncan's single. Cuellar helped himself in the fifth when he picked the speedy Bert Campaneris off first base following a one-out single and he might have been helped by Tommy Davis' surprise sacri- fice in the sixth. It surprised Williams, too. With Jackson on second with a leadoff double, Davis, the cleanup hitter, gave himself up with a bunt that moved Jackson to third. But Jackson was stranded when Bando grounded out and Angel Mangual flied out. "I would have preferred to see him swing, but he was just trying to do his Williams said in explaining that Davis had sacrificed on his own. "He was trying to make sure of get- ting that runner over." MONDAY'S RESULTS Oakland 000100 fi 0 Baltimore on 010 5 7 o Hunter (0-1) and Duncan; Cuellar (1-0) and Hendricks.
