Mets won Game 5 with a 2-0 victory in New York Let s just say that it s a good chance that it might be Seaver The hard-throwing ace is the only right-hander among the Mets starters but it real ly doesn t matter which side they ve been throwing from in this best-of-seven-game series Left-handers especialh have been tough on the pre- dominantly right hand Oakland batting Thursday night s

Series team If I could face their pitchers all vear there s not one of them I couldn t hit Manager Dick Williams Oakland A's morale low NEW YORK (AP) Dick Williams scoffed Thursday at the suggestion that the bitter 'Andrews affair is affecting the morale and performance of his Oakland Athletics in the World Series We played Tuesday night when Mike wasn t with us, and we won the manager of the Athletics said "Wednes- day night he was on hand and we lost How are you going to figure any lack of of that' The ranks of the defending world baseball champions seethed with dissension following the surreptitious dropping of infielder Mike Andrews after he had made two errors that swung the se- cond game to New York Mets Some of the Athletics im- provised the number '17 their sleeves as a sign of mourning They criticized their owner, Charles O Finley for his action and said he 'lacked class Williams is reported to have called his team into a secret meeting and said he was fed up with the situation in Oakland and would resign after the series How can a team perform to its full potential with all these stresses and strains0 111 tell you how Williams said These guys have two things written across the chests of their un- iforms one invisible One says Oakland or A's The other says Pride 'Pride is what motivates us Pride and monev Remember we are all professionals Williams acknowledged that he was a bit apprehensive Tuesday night not knowing how his team would react to all the contusion created over the Andrews incident "When Bert Campanens came to bat to start the game I wondered if he might be worrying more about Andrews than Tom Seaver As soon as the first ball was pitched I knew it was silly of me to worry The Oakland manager said however, that he wouldn t doubt that the amazing Mets who rallied from last place in their division to take the National League title might be feeding on some unseen stimulus 'I ve heard that they vowed they would win this year for Gil Hodges (former manager who died of a heart attack in the spring of he added called the Mets pitching the best we ve looked at this year We never underestimated the Mets He added Maybe with the ease thev ve been handling us they 11 start to underestimate us The Athletics don t have a home run off the Mets staff yet We had a 215 team batting average for the World Series before this game and I m sure we didn t raise it Williams added after his team totalled just three hits off Jerry Kossman and Tug McGraw Williams said Oakland s pitching has been as good as it was last vear against Cincin- nati but we re not going to win if we don t score runs Volleyball at U of L Ten matches in 'tier two competition in the Alberta Senior Mens Volleyball League will be held at the University of

ad- mitted free Yogi relaxes what got us here in the tirst place It was apparent from the start that pitching would dominate Thursday night's game Koosman and Oakland s Vida Blue were locked in a tense early struggle as the Mets took a 1-0 lead in the second inning on a double by flu-stricken Cleon Jones and a run-scoring single by John Milner The Mets had Blue on the ropes in the fourth when Rus- ty Staub and Jones singled to start the inning but failed to deliver a knockout blow Blue pitched out of the jam He failed however to survive the sixth when the Mets scored their second run on a single by Jerry Grote and triple by Don Hahn 'It was the most important hit of mv life said Hahn who isn t normally known for game-winning hits "It gave Jerry more of a cushion to work with That insurance run looked big in the late going when Koosman got into trouble In the seventh inning he walked Gene Tenace and gave up a one-out double to Ray Fosse that put men on second and third It was time for McGraw No one wants to leave a ball game said Koosman 'and I was feeling pretty strong too But you can t knock Yogi s move Tug has pitched great baseball for us the last two months McGraw came on the scene with his usual flourish as house organist Jane Jarvis played lively Irish music.for the entrance The left-hander promptly walked pinch-hitter Deron Johnson on a 3-2 count to load the bases 'I can t pitch well with no- body on base, said McGraw 'I have much better con centration with the bases loaded The crowd roared as New York s favorite relief pitcher got pinch-hitter Angel Mangual on a pop fly to short stop Harrelson Then the crowd went wild as McGraw got the dangerous Bert Cam- panens on strikes 'The strikeout pitch was just above the knees on the outside part of the plate, said McGraw 'I tried to make it look like a screwball It went just where I wanted it and he took it McGraw walked three batters in the seventh and eighth innings and manag- ed to struggle through despite the control problem I kicked myself in the backside and I was all right from then on McGraw said McGraw's darting fastball set the Athletics down 1-2-3 in the ninth He finished on a high note striking out the last two batters as the right field Scoreboard flashed "TUG in giant letters The Mets' pitching is the best we ve looked at this year said manager Dick Williams of Oakland "I thought Blue pitched a hell of a game Koosman and McGraw just pitched better A look at the figures con- firmed Williams' assessment The Athletics were only able to collect three hits off Koosman and none off McGraw The power-hitting Athletics haven't had a home run in this Series and scored only four runs in the three games at Shea AB R H RBI New York Mets' manager Yogi Berra, whose team has
