today "Since my decision there have been moments when I thought I might have been do- ing the wrong thing, but I can say in all honesty that I now feel a lighter man It was Ken Tyrrell, a wealthy

gave New York Mets fits sun umpire Augie Donatelli and Oakland Athletics But the National League champions pulled out a zany 10-7 victory in 12 innings to even the World Series at one game each Oakland won 2-1 Saturday "I think we 11 look better in New York, said Don Hahn, one of the Met outfielders who had to deal with the treacherous sun in the Oakland Coliseum during the weekend The Coliseum was an awfully tough park to field in one of the toughest I've ever been in Cleon Jones verified Hahn s report The Met left fielder lost a ball in the sun in the first inning giving Joe Rudi a gift double in a two-run Oakland uprising "It was the worst said Jones, "the absolute worst I've never played in a major league ball park where the sun is that bad The Mets didn't think much of the umpiring either They had a ripe opportunity to break a 6-6 tie in the 10th in- ning with runners at first and third and one out Felix Millan lifted a fly ball to Rudi in short left and Bud Harrelson attempted to tag up and score from third HARRELSON CAUGHT But Donatelli called him out on a play at home Harrelson complained that Oakland catcher Rav Fosse never touched me Donatelli s decision brought several Mets storming from the dugout Willie Mays the ondeck batter was literally down on his knees pleading with the umpire "There's no question in my mind that I was Harrel- son said after the storm had died down and the Mets had locked up the game, "but there was a question in Donatelli s mind The Mets scored four runs in a whacky 12th inning to break the deadlock Then, relief pitcher George Stone came into the tense game and nailed it down for New York after Tug McGraw gave up Oakland s final run "We felt like we would never give up said McGraw, who pitched six fine innings of relief before needing help himself Trailing 3-2 the Mets scored four times in the sixth inning before fans after a walk to Cleon Jones, a single by John Milner and a hit batsman that loaded the bases Hahn beat out an m- field single for one run, Harrelson singled to right for another and then Jerry Grote and Hahn both scored on an m- field error the American League champs scored their fourth run on a double by Reggie Jackson in the seventh and tied the score at 6-6 with a two-run rally in the ninth, the Mets took command Denied earlier opportunities to score, they finally put it out of reach in the 12th as Mays singled home the go-ahead run and the Mets pushed across three more tallies on two errors by second baseman Mike Andrews It was one of five errors made by Oakland "I honestly don't know what Andrews said about the ball that shot through his legs in the decisive 12th "I thought it was right in my glove We had to work Bud OAKLAND (AP, Bud Harrelson doesn t think there's anything lucky or miraculous about New York Mets "We worked for our said the smooth-fielding short- stop as the Mets sat in the locker room after Sunday's 10- 7 World Series victory over Oakland Athletics

Harrelson said Tug McGraw, the winning pitcher who hurled six plus in- nings before George Stone saved the victory in the 12th bunted the ball over charging Sal Bando's head at third Harrelson took third on the play "It wasn't really a lucky play said the bubbling Met reliever who struck out eight during his stint "There's a thin line between being lucky and being good "Even though I was trying to go to the first base line, I knew Bando might charge from third We studied their trick plays before the Series and that's something they do a lot "I was mentally prepared for him charging and when I saw him, I adjusted Actually, I got the bat out too far, but I did want to hit it hard McGraw's thin line started to waver to the lucky side later in the inning After Willie Mays singled up the middle for the go-ahead run the Mets scored three more on successive errors by Mike Andrews at second base "Like I said Harrelson said, "that's how we score our runs Erratic fielding produced six errors in the game, which at times looked like a sandlot dffair It went four hours and 13 minutes, a record for the World Series Also a total of 11 pitchers was used by both sides, and that tied a World Series record "It reminded me of an early exhibition said Oakland third baseman Sal Bando "Things can get sloppy this time of year Guys get tired, conditions are tough and it's a shame things
