Von Hayes was the whole show Tuesday night at San Francisco as the Philadelphia Phillies handed the slumping Giants a 6-1 defeat. Hayes, benched last week for lack of hitting, hit three home runs and drove in all the runs as the Phillies handed the Giants their fourth loss in five games. It was the first three-homer game for Hayes, who has 21 home runs this season. Hayes also had two doubles in a 9-1 victory over the Giants Monday night.

Bert Blyleven continues to conquer age and infirmity, but Von Hayes lost his battle with time and Tim Salmon. Blyleven, 41, combined with three relief pitchers on a six-hitter Thursday night to lead the Angels to a 2-0 victory before 32,879 at Fenway Park, his first victory in Boston since June 21, 1983. His 286th victory was his third in succession, improving his record to 7-5 since his return from rotator cuff surgery.

I really must thoroughly agree with Jim Murray's column regarding just where Al Campanis might procure a first baseman and a third baseman. Congratulations to Jim on correctly stating a situation which has rankled me (and many others, too, I suspect) for the last few years. GUY MILLER Reseda

Many times this season, John Wathan has sat down to fill out the lineup card and found himself stumped. Cleanup. Who should bat fourth? It ought to be one of the easiest positions to fill in, but for the Angels, it has been the hardest. Von Hayes? Gary Gaetti? Wathan, the interim manager, pencils them in more for their past than their present. But in the Angels' 5-3 victory over Texas before 32,524 Friday at Arlington Stadium, Hayes and Gaetti played more like their reputations.

Philadelphia Phillie outfielder Von Hayes broke his right wrist Friday night when hit by a pitch from the Cincinnati Reds' Tom Browning and is out for the rest of the season. Hayes, who in the last week has been rumored going to Cincinnati for infielder Mariano Duncan, was batting in the sixth inning when hit by Browning. Hayes went to first base after he was hit, but was removed and sent to a hospital when the Phillies took the field for the seventh.

They still call Von Hayes a natural, and more than a decade after his slashing bat and Paul Bunyan stride carried him to the major leagues, he still looks the part. Whether in the batter's box during an intrasquad game or testing a new bat in the equipment room at the Angels' spring training complex, Hayes' swing is smooth, powerful. That uncoiling of arm, that twist of torso--those are the things he was meant to do with his 6 feet 5 inches and 186 pounds.

A second set of X-rays on Luis Polonia's sore left hand found no broken bones. However, Polonia remains unable to throw and was the DH again Wednesday. . . . Von Hayes took grounders at first in pre-game infield practice.

Von Hayes said he's "130%" ready to return to the lineup tonight after missing eight games because of a strained left hamstring. And when he does come back, he probably will bat second instead of third. Junior Felix, moved from second to third in the batting order last Thursday, was eight for 22 with five runs scored and 10 RBIs in seven games in Hayes' place. "The only negative is that I'd have two left-handers in a row," Manager Buck Rodgers said of a 1-2 order of Luis Polonia and Hayes.

As a transplanted Philadelphian, in reading Helene Elliott's otherwise fine piece on Von Hayes (March 3), I noticed a glaring error: She states that Hayes was a target in a city most known for booing Santa Claus. The incident to which I think Ms. Elliott refers is one when the Eagles were playing at Franklin Field, and where Santa was relentlessly pelted with snowballs. There may have been some booing, but as any true Philadelphian knows, booing while hurling frozen projectiles can affect your aim. CLAY HEERY Marina del Rey

In acquiring Von Hayes from the Phillies Sunday, Whitey Herzog opened the winter meetings with a salvo of unmistakable messages. Trading pitching prospect Kyle Abbott and outfielder Ruben Amaro in the first transaction here signaled the Angels' senior vice president's eagerness to deal. That extends to trading Chuck Finley if the Angels can't sign the left-hander to a long-term contract.
