(AP) — John Candelaria knows about adversity. He also knows about bouncing back. It is a tribute to his resiliency that he will start for the California Angels Friday night in Game 3 of the American League playoffs against the Bos ton Red Sox. Candelaria has felt the sting of criticism from teammates and management. He underwent surgery for arm problems that threatened his career. And he watched his infant son die after 1 1 months in a coma. “The last couple of years taught me to deal with reality,” he said. Tonight, Candelaria will deal with a different kind of reality. The series is tied 1-1, and the An gels are counting on the left-hander to put them in front again in the best-of-seven series. It seemed an unlikely scenario early in the sea son when Candelaria missed the first three months because of elbow problems. But he went 10-2 with a 2.55 earned run average alter coming back in July. His return, speeded-up because of a need for another starting pitcher on the staff, helped the Angels win the American League West. He did, however, have to take off a couple of weeks in September because of elbow soreness. "Il l would’ve taken my time and come back in August, 1 wouldn’t have had the problem,” Can delaria said. “I’m not putting the blame on any body. I was trying to rush, too.” Candelaria, who will be 33 next month, tea med with Mike Witt, Kirk McCaskill and Don Sutton to give California a solid rotation on a team that finished second in die league in pitch ing. Witt beat Boston 8-1 on a five-hitter in Game 1 of the playof fs, while the Red Sox prevailed over McCaskill 9-2 in the second game on Wednesday. Candelaria will be opposed by Dennis "Oil Can” Boyd, who was 16-10 this season. Tonight’s game will begin at twilight to acco modate television. That is not a hitter’s favor® part of the day. "It’s tough at the time, especially picking! the ball," Boston designated hitter Don Bavlot said. The Red Sox will fie facing t he (i-f<>ot-7 Candt laria, who said, “1 think I’m throwing it beitn now than I have in seven or eight years." Most of that time was spent in I’iltsbutgl. where he pitched in the playoffs in 1975 ml 1979. In August 1985, the Pirates tradedCandelarii a lifelong starter who bad been used exclusive in relief for die first time in his career. Hit change in scenery was exactly what Candeiam needed, and he went 7-3 for tfte Angelsdumj the rest of the year. "I don’t know what that will be like,"Candeli ria said. “I’ve never pitched a 5:30 start in Am- heim. "I feel it’s time for my talent to come out,’lit said with a smile. “1 don’t know if it will." Cowboys, Redskins to renew old rivalry Battered players may miss game sea] first: PP< lion IRVING (AP) — The unbeaten Washington Redskins can put the defending NFC Eastern Division champion Dallas Cowboys on the ropes Sunday w ith a victory at Texas Stadium in a clash of two old rivals who could be missing some key play ers. The Redskins are off to a 5-0 start for just the third time in their 50- year history while the crippled Cow boys are 3-2. “To start 5-0 for us is a dream,” said Washington Coach Joe Gibbs. “We have 13 first-year players. We’ve made a lot of changes. We’ve fought hard every week and we’re very pleased.” Dallas Coach Tom Landry said he hadn’t projected such a quick blitz by the Redskins. “I’m a little surprised,” Landry said. “You have to be awful lucky to start 5-0. They are an excellent team and very well coached but you have to have a little luck.” Landry is 30-20-2 against Wash ington, including a series sweep last year. Gibbs is 4-6 against the Cowboys, including a 44-14 loss in Texas Sta dium last year. However, both teams are so bruised up it could be the noon kick off before starting lineups are deter mined. Three of Dallas’ shining stars, quarterback Danny White, running back Tonv Dorsett, and defensive tackle Randy White nursed injuries. Quarterback Steve Pelluer, who subbed for Danny White in a 29-14 loss to Denver last week, was ready for his Texas Stadium NFL starting debut if White’s pulled groin re fused to respond. Dorsett, who gave way to Herschel Walker last week while resting a sprained knee and ankle, could play with a knee brace. Don Smerek, who has missed ail of the season with a sprained knee, was activated to start for Randy White should a pulled hamstring be come too painf ul. The Redskins also have had their share of injury misfortune. Linebacker Mel Kaufman is lost for the season and outside line backer Monte Coleman’s hamstring injury will not allow hint to plat against the Cowboys. Middle linebacker Neal Oita got a twisted knee in last Sundau 14-6 victory over New Orleans anti might not lae 100 percent. Landry said he thought Washing ton was a playoff caliber team. “With a 5-0 streak, I’d say Wait ington is a cinch for the playoffs. Landrv said. “Our tinting (withinju t ies) couldn't have been worse.’’ Landry refused to say thegamt was a "must” for the Cowboys al though a three-game deficit be hard to overcome. “1 remember once we trailed In three games with four to plavaid ended up winning the SuperBo«l Landry said.
