The game was played before some 65,000 fans who braved 40 degree temperatures at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia. Kansas City batters got to the Phillies' rookie Pitcher Bob Walk early in the game, scoring two runs in the top half of the second and third innings. Amos Otis slammed a two-run homer in the second, and Willie Mays Aikens duplicated that feat with his own two-run shot in the third, giv- ing the Royals a four-run cushion after two and a half innings. The Phillies came back for five runs against K.C. starter Dennis Leonard in the bottom of the third, with RBI-producing hits from Bob Boone and Lonnie Smith, and Mc- Bride 's three-run blast. Philadelphia added to their lead in the fourth when Boons connected for his second RBI safety, scoring Manny Trillo from third base, for a 6-4 lead. Reliever Donald Martin replaced Leonard and gave up the Phillies final run in the bottom of the fifth on a Garry Maddox sacrifice fly which enabled Mike Schmidt to tag-up and score from third. The Phillies led 7-4. Walk had settled down since his shaky beginning in the early innings and held the dangerous Royal lineup in check through the middle innings. In the eighth, Walk was sent to the showers, when Willie Mays Aikens, celebrating his 26th birthday, smashed his second two-run homer of the game, pulling the Royals to within one run, 7-6. The Phillies called on their ace of the bullpen, 36-year-old Tug McGraw, to relieve Walk and protect their slim lead. And the World Series veteran (he played with the New York Mets in their World Series appearances in '69 and '73) came through and ended the eighth inning as John Watham chased a screwball and hit into a double play. McCraw beared down in the top of the ninth and retired Frank White on a grounder, caught U.L. Washing- ton looking at a called third strike and ended the game by striking out fleet Willie Wilson. MISC: The Phillies had only one day off between the playoffs while the Royals rested for three days...Bob Walk was the first rookie pitcher to start the first game of a World Series in 28 years...It was the first time in the series' his- tory that both teams were managed by rookies.
