Raider defense throttles Miami
LOS ANGELES (AP) — By his own admittance, Lyle Alzado is a little different, as are his teammates on the Los Angeles Raiders’ defense.
Different, perhaps, but very, very good.
If the Miami Dolphins didn’t know how good, they do now.
The Raiders blanked Miami until the issue was no longer in doubt Monday night as Los Angeles joined the Dallas Cowboys as the National Football League's only unbeaten teams with a decisive 27-14 victory over the Dolphins.
‘‘Each of the guys on the defense is a little off-center and there’s a great deal of pride," said Alzado, a 34-year-old defensive end. "Your teammates beat you up trying to get to the ball. It’s a very overpowering defense."
Indeed, it is. The Raiders have given up only three touchdowns and just 30 points overall in beating Cincinnati, Houston and Miami. All three of those TDs came after Los Angeles had assured itself of victory.
The Dolphins, who had only nine first downs until the final few minutes Monday night, got their touchdowns on a 6-yard pass from rookie quarterback Dan Marino to tight end Joe Rose with 2:29 remaining and a 2-yard pass from Marino to Mark Duper with 20 seconds left.
Before that, nothing. As a result, the defending American Football Conference champion Dolphins fell to 2-1 and the Raiders improved their incredible Monday night record to 20-2-1 since prime-time football came into being in 1970.
Probably the key play of the game occurred late in the third quarter. Naturally, it was provided by file Los Angeles defense.
The Raiders led 13-0, but the Dolphins were in a third-end-six situation at the Los Angeles 21-yard line. Miami quarterback David Woodley went back to pass, but was separated from the ball by blitzing linebacker Rod Martin.
Rookie Los Angeles defensive end Greg Townsend scooped the ball up at the Raiders’ 34-yard line and dashed 66 yards for a touchdown, making it 260 and all but sealing the outcome.
"I saw all these black jerseys (his teammates) and the ball and somebody yelled ‘Pick it up,’" recalled Townsend, a fourth-round draft choice of the Raiders who attended Texas Christian University.
Baltimore rallies past Milwaukee again
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Don’t tell the Milwaukee Brewers that lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place.
After trailing the Brewers 7-0 on Sunday, the Orioles rallied and finally won the game in the ninth inning on a game-winning single by rookie catcher John Stefero.
On Monday night, Stefero, who has played in six major-league games with five hits in IO at-bats, did it again. He climaxed a two-run rally in the 11th inning with another RBI single, giving the Orioles an 8-7 victory over the Brewers and a 74-game lead over second-place Detroit in the American League East
"It’s kind of a one-in-a-million chance to get to do this," said Stefero, who helped reduce Baltimore’s "magic number" to seven. "I want to open some
eyes here that I can hit in pressure situations."
Meanwhile, the Orioles’ comeback ability is starting to look unreal even to their own players. They have 35 come-from-behind victories this season and have a 33-11 record in games decided in the seventh inning or later.
"I sUll can’t believe it.”
Twins 7, White Sox 5
Minnesota continued its success over runaway division champion Chicago as Tom Brunarisky knocked in four runs, two of them with a homer in the top (rf the eighth inning.
Red Sox 5, Yankees 3
Bob Stanley earned his 30th save and sUfled a home-run hitting contest between Boston and New York with three innings of one-hit pitching.
Mariners 9, Blue Jays 6
Seattle snapped a seven-game losing streak with a five-run seventh inning against Toronto highlighted by Darnell Coles’ two-run single.
Al Cowens and Dave Henderson also contributed run-scoring singles to the winning rally that made a winner of Matt Young, 11-15.
Buck Martinez hit his 10th homer for the Blue Jays.
Royals 9-7, Angels 4-6
Kansas City had to rally in the late innings of both games to sweep a doubleheader from California.
With the Royals trailing 6-5 in the ninth of the second game, Willie Wilson doubled in the tying run with two outs then raced home when Pat Sheridan hit an infield single.
Fortune still raining on Oilers, Biles
HOUSTON (AP) - After watching his team drubbed 40-28 by Pittsburgh on Sunday, Houston Oiler Coach Ed Biles awoke Monday morning and thought it had to be a better day.
Heavy rains had caused flooding throughout the city during the night and when a generator was threatened by rising waters, all power in the area of the Oiler training facility was turned off.
Movie projectors went silent, film grading ceased and the day’s scheduled practice was canceled.
Then came word that the Oilers’ most experienced offensive lineman, Doug France, had seriously cut his hand after the game and would require surgery that would keep him out of action for two to three weeks.
Also dampening Biles’ day were those pesky
questions about Biles’ job security in the face of a 10-game losing streak and upcoming road games against Buffalo and a return match at Pittsburgh.
But Biles’ stiff upper lip still was firmly in place as it had been after Sunday’s game and he almost looked comfortable on the hot seat.
Asked if he still had the confidence of owner Bud Adams, Biles said "I can’t say. Bud has turned the football operation over to (General Manager) Ladd (Herzeg) and there has been no indication that they want to change what we have started.
"We’re not going to mortgage the future and we’re not going for any get-rich-quick schemes."
Biles is 8-20 as head coach (rf the Oilers and in the final year of a three-year contract.
The loss of France could seriously affect the Oilers' young offensive line that has struggled the
past two weeks.
"It's a blow to our line situation," Biles said. "We’ll see what is available."
Biles said the Oilers would consider signing free agent guard Pat Howell, formerly of the Atlanta Falcons. "But I understand it is his preference to go to the west coast," Biles said.
Biles faced another prickly problem today — deciding on a starting quarterback.
Biles picked Archie Manning to lead the team in the preseason but after two off performances. Biles is considering going back to Gifford Nielsen.
Manning hit 16 of 27 passes for 300 yards and one touchdown against the Steelers but his four interceptions and one lost fumble contributed to 16 Steeler points.

Auburn game tough to top, Akers says
AUSTIN (AP) — Texas coach Fred Akers says the Longhorns will have a chance to correct first-game mistakes, but it would be "hard to improve’’ on his team’s overall effort in defeating Auburn 20-7.
"We controlled the line of scrimmage — both ways." Akers told his weekly news conference Monday.
Texas jumped to a 20-0 halftime lead, and although the Longhorns got only 20 yards offense in the second half, Akers said. "We accomplished exactly what we wanted in the second half
"When you’re ahead 20-0, the only thing that the other team has any hope for is that you will give them the time they need, because time is definitely against them, so you work to take the time away from them You do that by letting that clock run and don’t give them an opportunity to get any momentum through mistakes.
"I wouldn’t change a thing. How could I be disappointed'’ We wanted to win the ball game. We weren’t about to go out there and do something to lose it."
Texas Rangers fight on return flight
DALLAS (AP) - Texas Rangers Mickey Rivers and Mike Richardt exchanged punches on a commercial flight that carried the American League club from Los Angeles to the Dallas-Fort Worth Regional Airport on Sunday night, team officials said.
Several punches were thrown, but the fight was broken up quickly by Manager Doug Rader, according to The Dallas Morning News.
Richardt called the brief battle a misunderstanding
"I don’t think this is the first time it happened, I’m sure it’s not the last," said general manager Joe Klein, who wasn’t on the plane. "Players spend a lot of tune together "
Cowboys' Johnson gets day off
DALLAS (AP) — Unhappy Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Butch Johnson was given Monday off after a 45-min Ute closed door meeting with coach Tom Landry Johnson has been unhappy about the amount of playing tune he has been getting and met with the coach after the Cowboys 28-13 victory over the New York Giants "I didn t tell him to take the day oti, he asked for it," Undry said, admitting it was unusual, bid "not out of the ordinary" to give a player the day off.
"He said he needed the day off to do some things He’s been down for a week or so and hasn't been feeling himself I gave him the chance to shake it aff," Landry said.
The coach said Johnson did not raise his voice during the meeting and denied that Johnson was upset Landry ’s explanation came when it was noted that Johnson was missing from Monday’s team meeting and light workout.
Cowboys players were somewhat skeptical of Landry’* explanation. They believed the coach was establishing a double standard by giving Johnson the day off "This ain’t Montgomery Ward. You just don't call in sick. That’s not how it s done This is a team. We got 48 players and Butch," said ane player.
Veterans were unable to recall the last time Landry granted a player the day off
