The only doubt in Murlaugh's mind about Ellis starting Saturday against the Orioles, the American League champions, was the condition of the 26-year-olu1 right-hander's tender elbow. Oliver and Hcbncr accounted for most of Pittsburgh's runs Wednesday, but the real was Kison, a babyface 21-year-old. San Francisco ripped starler Steve Blass for five runs in the first two innings, but Roberto Clements singled home two runs in the first a'.d Hebner smashed his homer in the second off Giants' starter Gaylord Perry to keep Pirates even. At the start of ihird, Murtaugb brought in Orioles know Pirates have lots of power BALTIMORE (AP) Balti- more Orioles find it hard to reveal anything hut the ob- vious when speaking of their World- Series opponents. The American League champions indicate that when you speak of Pittsburgh Pir- ates the first thing that comes to mind is their hitting. ANDY CAPP I tX3N'T KNOW faw SER IT, PET f ER DON'T LOOK A -f W OVER TWENTY TWO J THIRTV THREE VES, TWENTY TWO NO Contacts not prime factor MONTREAL (CP) Quarter- back Sonny Wade of Montreal Aloueltes began wearing con- tact lenses on the field a year move that was heralded as a prime factor in changing the club's high turnover rate into touchdowns. But today the Eastern Foot- ball Conference Als, defending Grey Cup champions, once again led the turnover parade and Wade concedes he really doesn't think the lense., made much difference after all. The Als have a 5-5 record after dropping games to Ed- monton Eskimos and British Columbia Lions of the Western Football Conference, last week. Now the Als arc preparing for a Sunday visit by Toronto Argo- nauts, current leaders in the EFC with a 9-2 record. The two "They have a lot of Baltimore manager Earl Weaver said after Pirates beat San Francisco Giants Wednesday to win the Na- tional League playoffs, "and it's pretty well balanced from both sides of the plate." As a result, Weaver was not definite about his starting pitcher for game No. 1 in Bal- timore Saturday. "The only thing I can say right now is that Pat Dobson probably will work out of the he scid. WASN'T NEEDED Dobson, one of four 20-game winners on the Balitmore staff, was assigned to the bull- pen for the playoffs but was not needed. As the Orioles swept three from Oakland Athletics, Dave McNally required two innings of relief from Eddie Watt, while the other 20-game win- ners, Mike Cuellar and Jim Palmer, hurled complete games. "I know our pitching is bet- ter than theirs." coach Billy Hunter said, "and I hope our hitting is as good as theirs." "The Pirates hit home runs even when they're not in Palmer said. "Most of them can hit ho- mer but the biggest thing is they hit the ball all over the park, and make it harder to defence you can make them hit the ball to Brooks Jack meets Lue VIRGINIA WATER, Eng- land (AP) Jack Nicklaus, defending his Piccadilly world match play golf title, faced Mister Lue of Taiwan today and insisted it wasn't going to be easy.

He i started wearing contact lenses i on the field last year but doesn't credit them for the team's run to the Grey Cup. "Everybody made such a fuss about it last year that I just went along with the he says. "The key last year was that everyone started to pull to- gether as a unit and we began to play winning football." And this year? "It might be a lot of Wade says. Football is a tre- mendously psychological game. "And just one mistake by anybody on the field can lead to an offensive breakdown." He points out the Als could have had a 7-3 mark but for a pair of one-point decisions against Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Edmonton. "Seven and three isn't a bad season." He said that his rookie a bad season and the only emotion around the Mont- real dressing room as the Als posted a 2-10-2 mark was de- spair. "Now there's nothing like that. I'm certain nobody is thinking about giving up and quilting." While Wade leads the EFC quarterback statistics with 131 completions on 276 attempts this season and yards through the air, he also has had 20 of his passes intercepted, also tops in the EFC.
