FILING CABINETS Rusty drives in five big ones Mets draw even again NEW YORK (AP) Some- thing finally has taken the play away from Oakland Athletics' internal Staub's bat. The Athletics, who have grabbed most of the headlines lately with juicy stories of clubhouse unrest, took a back seat in the World Series to New York Mets Wednesday night. Providing some news of his own, Staub dismissed a pain- ful right shoulder and knocked in five runs to help the Mets win 6-1 and square the best-of- seven series at two games apiece. "I did a lot of work during batting practice and did several things to adjust for my sore shoulder." said Staub after hitting a three-run homer and two-run single. He wouldn't say, but what- ever it was that Staub did, it worked wonders. "Under the circumstances, my performance was un- Dissension grows A's have trouble NEW YORK Oakland Athletics say their manager, Dick Williams, is quitting after the World Series and that they still are mad at owner Charles 0. Finley for "firing" infielder Mike Andrews. So it's a little hard to believe them when they say the controversy isn't affecting their play in the deadlocked series with New York Mets. Andrews rejoined the team Wednesday at the direction of baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn. He immediately held a news conference said he had been under extreme duress from Finley when he signed a statement saying he had a bad arm. Williams wouldn't say he was leaving, but second baseman Dick Green and others confirmed that the skipper told the team in a meeting Tuesday that he would quit after the Series- win or lose. "He did say: 'I won't be back next Green said, "and if we repeat it, he'll deny it." Williams did deny it. There was speculation that Williams would become man- ager of New York Yankees, succeeding Ralph Houk, who went to Detroit Tigers. "I haven't talked to them. They haven't talked to Williams said. "Right now I am the manager of the Oakland A's and that's it. Next year is next year." Finley has been quoted as saying he would not stand in Williams' way if the Yankees made an approach. He said Williams is under contract through 1974. The Minneapolis Tribune quotes Finley as saying "There's a certain amount of glamor to working in New York. Maybe this interests him." The A's were in a state of personnel conflict. Outfielder Reggie Jackson reiterated that "I want to be traded. I'd love to play in New York." Third baseman Sal Bando said: "If I got traded, I wouldn't be disappointed." But through it all, the Athletics claimed to be oblivious as far as their on- the-field war with the Mets is concerned. "It will have no affect on the Green said of Williams' expected resignation. "Most of us knew it was coming three or four weeks ago." Williams said before the game that he didn't think the Andrews affair would affect morale. He inserted Andrews as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning and Andrews got a standing ovation from the crowd, both before and after he grounded out. A reporter asked Williams what Finley would say if An- drews was used as a pinch hit- ter. "Mr. Finley doesn't run this ball club on the field. I Williams said. "Mr. Finley tends to his business and lets me tend to mine." Despite his reinstatement. Andrews said he did not ex- pect to be back with the team next year.

Everyone Welcome the only league game schedul- ed for Henderson Stadium Friday night. The defending champion Rams lead the western con- ference with a brilliant 5-0 record while the Bulldogs and Catholic Central Cougars share second with three wins and two losses apiece. A Ram victory Friday night would then mathematically eliminate the second place club's chances for the league pennant title. The Rams will also probably keep in mind that they're currently riding a five-game winning streak. If this is the Bulldogs should have their hands full in the eight o'clock encounter at Henderson. While the Rams and Bulldogs are playing in Lethbridge, the CCHS Cougars will be out to take over sole possession of second place in Medicine Hat. Cougars will meet head on with Medicine Hat High Mohawks which should be an exciting game for the Gas City fans. Meanwhile it'll be a first for local high school football games when a marching band and majorettes will entertain the spectators at halftime. The LCI band attired in their new uniforms will supply the halftime entertainment under the direction of Jerry Pokarney. believably said Staub, who also had two hits and a walk in a 4-for-4 night. "When you've been playing in the big leagues for about 11 years and always wanted to play in a World Series, well, this is a great, great feeling." Staub's shoulder has been a daily topic since last week, when he hurt it while making a stunning catch in the National League playoff against Cincinnati Reds. He still can't throw obviously, he can hit. Even if it is to the op- posite field. "I hit a he said about the clout over the left- centre field fence at Shea Sta- dium off Ken Holtzman in the first inning. "I hit the ball per- fectly so that it could carry that way. I knew the wind was gusting out there. "I thought, though, that it would fall between the fielders. I was kind of surpris- ed when it went over the fence. I was running as hard as I could because I wasn't sure it was out. It was the first ball I've hit out since the shoulder ob- viously, the wind helped." The blast was the beginning of the end for Holtzman, the Athletics' winner in the open- ing game of the World Series last Saturday. After the 20- game-winning left-hander walked John Milner and gave up a single to Jerry Grote, he took a shower. Staub's two-run single high- lighted a three-run fourth in- ning that was mere icing for young Jon Matlack's first World Series victory. The power-throwing left- hander limited Oakland to one unearned run and three hits before leaving with a stiff shoulder after eight innings. "I learned a little about the Athletics in the first game and used it to my advantage tonight." said Matlack, the losing pitcher in game No. 1. He encountered rough going in only one fourth, when the Athletics scored their only run with the help of a New York error. After Joe Rudi struck out, Sal Bando reached first on Wayne Garrett's boot and went to third on a single by Reggie Jackson. Then Bando came home as Gene Tenace bounced out to short. Matlack, last year's rookie of the year in the National League, couldn't finish, though. His arm stiffened and he had to watch the ninth in- ning from the bench. "My shoulder was really tight out said Matlack. "It impaired my throwing. It took something off my fastball because I couldn't come around over the top. Ray Sadecki pitched the ninth, but gave New York manager Yogi Berra some anxious moments before nail- ing it down. He loaded the bases with two out before striking out Bert Campaneris as most of the paid fans roared their approval. One of the few who wasn't roaring was sitting near the Oakland Charles O. Finley of the Athletics. Four for four Rusty Staub, New York Mets' rlghtfielder, smashes a line drive to centre In the sixth Inning of the World Series against Oakland A's. Staub stroked a home run and three singles to drive in five runs in the Mets' 6-1 victory. Staub might feed everyone NEW YORK (AP) Rusty Staub is trying to make a mess of dishes for himself. The 29-year-old Staub has promised his 24 team-mates, manager and coaches a dinner he plans to cook himself il New York Mets beat Oaklanc Athletics in the World Series. The 200-pound red-hairec Staub fancies himself as cook. A bachelor, he eats a lot of his own concoctions. The pain-wrackec has to throw un- derhand because of a badlj bruised right matters into his own hands Wednesday night, getting foui hits and driving in five runs tc lead the Mets to a 6-1 trounc ing of the Athletics in UK fourth game to tie the best-of seven baseball series 2-2. Staub refuses to discuss the injury he suffered when he slammed into the right field wall in the fourth game of the National League playoff against Cincinnati. "I'm not going to get into that." Staub said after hitting three singles and a three-run homer. "It's obvious that I'm having a little trouble. I'm trying to do my best to com- pensate, play the best I can and let it go at that." Staub said he has been in the major leagues 11 years waiting to play in a World Series and that his big night against the Athletics was "unbelievably satisfying." "I did a lot of work. I came in early for batting practice and adjusted at the plate to my problems." The 6-foot-2 Staub, native of New Orleans, and once with Montreal Expos of the National League, has been un- able to pull the ball with power in the Series because of his damaged shoulder. So he concentrated in practice on hitting to the opposite field. He worked on his timing. His first-inning home run to left field was the second he has hit to the opposite field all season. "It was a fast ball over the heart of the plate and the wind was gusting toward Staub said. "When I hit it I thought it would go between them I was running as hard as 1 could because I wasn't sure it was out. It was the first ball I've hit out since the shoulder in- jury. Staub credited his hit- .467 average is the best among the Mets in the concentration and a lot of hard work. "I've played when it hurt before, so when you guys (writers) asked me what I thought I could do, I told you we'd find out. "I feel our best lineup is with me in right field. L sincerely believe that. If I didn't I would not even try to play." Staub came to the Mets in a calculated gamble by the Club's management. New York sent three Singleton, Mike Jorgensen and Tim to Montreal for the power-hitter. Would he be playing if this wasn't the World Series? "I wouldn't be playing if I thought there was somebody else who could do the job bet- he said. "That applies to every day of the season, not only playoffs and World Series ENGLAND OUT LONDON (Renter) Poland qualified for the World Cup soccer finals in West Ger- many next year when they drew 1-1 with England at Wembley Wednesday night.
