Phils can’t get Clark out, hit Ripley


SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Hot-hitting Jack Clark belted his 13th homer, doubled and scored twice as the San Francisco Giants downed the Philadelphia Phillies 5-1 behind the pitching of Allen Ripley last night. 


Ripley, 2-1, made his second start of the season and held the Phillies scoreless -after the first inning. Ripley's only previous National League victory also was against the Phillies, in relief last week. 


The Phillies opened the scoring in the first inning on singles by Pete Rose, Bake McBride and Bob Boone. 


Successive one-out singles by Milt May, Jim Wohlford, Rich Murray and Johnnie LeMaster created a 1-1 tie off loser Dan Larson, 0-2, in the fourth.


The Giants, who have won eight of their last 11 games, went ahead to stay on Clark's two-out homer in the fifth. It was his third homer in four games against Philadelphia and also gave him a team-leading seven game-winning RBI. 


The Giants added two unearned runs in the sixth with the help of a three-base error by center fielder Garry Maddox. Clark's 400-foot double, an error by second baseman Manny Trillo and a pair of wild pitches by Lerrin LaGrow gave the Giants their final run in the seventh.
