Thursdoy, September 19,1974 . j£ gj M f i ) § g J j 1/ St. Louis Leads By 1 'A Bucs Top Cards In "Must Game" •NEWS r By GARY MIHOCES Associated Press Writer PITTSBURGH (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals took the just-another-ball-game, get-'em-next-time approach after losing, but down the hall the Pittsburgh Pirates sighed with relief. "This was a; must game for us," Manager Danny Murtaugh said after Pittsburgh defeated St. Louis 4-1 Wednesday night to move within l l/2 games of the first- place Cardinals in the National League East. The Pirates had stumbled to six straight losses previously and the Car- SIDELINE WATCHING By Bob Forbes t The W.F. Platoon Not many prep football teams in southern Illinois play strictly platoon football. In most cases, the depth just isn't there and that forces coaches to use some of their players both offensively and defensively. Mt. Vernon, for instance, normally uses four or five players both offensively and defensively. , But at West Frankfort, the name of the game is platoon football. Gene Ernest, in his first year as head football coach at Frankfort, does not start f one single player both offensively and defensively. "We're strictly a two-platoon football team," said Ernest, who brings his team to Mt. Vernon tomorrow night. "This was one of those years when we had a bunch of kids about equal in their ability and that allowed us to use the platoon system. And if you can get by with it, the platoon system is best because it gets more kids involved in the program and it means you have fresh players in the game all the time." Seniors dominate the Frankfort defensive team (9 seniors, 2 juniors) while juniors have a slight edge (6 juniors, 5 seniors) on offense. Frankfort will bring a 1-1 record to the King City. The Red Birds bombed Cairo in their season opener, 54-0 and then 16st a thriller to Johnston City last week, 14-12. "We couldn't do anything wrong against Cairo and we couldn't do anything right against Johnston City," said Ernest, summing up the two games. "We should, have beaten Johnston City by three touchdowns but we made about eight big mis­ takes in that game that killed us. Our execution against Johnston City was very poor." Ernest, calls his team "quick" but "small." "Basically, most of our people are in the 155 to 170 pounds range," he said. "We're not very big but we're fairly quick. If we can keep from getting man-handled, we can do a good job." Ernest starts a veteran offensive backfield of Don Wilkinson (150) at quarterback, Marty Morris (145) and Dennis Falletti (165) at the halfbacks and Neal Wilson (160) at the fullback. All except Wilson started last, season. "We feel we've got a pretty good backfield," said Ernest. "Morris is our best runner. He's averaging a little over four yards a carry." Mt. Vernon will take a 2-0 record against Frankfort. The Rams own wins over Cahokia (24-6) and Herrin (27-6). Mt. Vernon beat' West Frankfort 25-0 last year and 14-0 the year before that. Pairings for the third annual Lunkers Unlimited Bass Tournament will be made at 8 o'clock tomorrow night at Pharoah's Garden Marina on the Southwest side of Rend Lake. The tournament will be held on Rend Lake Saturday and Sunday. Alan Estes, Mt. Vernon's Most Valuable football player a couple of years ago, is a tight end for North Central College in Naperville this year. Estes played center in high school. Naperville opens at home Saturday afternoon. dinals had won that many in a row, including a 2-1 triumph over Pittsburgh in 13 innings Tuesday night. "The pressure was definitely on us," Pirate lefty Jim Rooker said after stopping the Cardinals with a complete-game sixhitter. The Cardinals, who had beaten Pittsburgh in 10 of 13 • previous encounters, didn't buy the notion that another victory would have been the coup de grace for the ' Pirates. "No way." said Cardinal shortstop Mike Tyson, who made two errors in the • fourth inning when the Pirates took the lead to stay with two runs off loser Lynn • McGlothen. "We still have to keep winning. There's no way we could have wrapped it up with a win tonight," Tyson added. Prior to their six-game slide, the Pirates had led by as many as 2V 2 games over the Cardinals. Joe Torre, whose first- inning double produced the only Cardinal run, noted that pitfalls await any team that gets too comfortable with a lead. "You really do have to play them one at a time, and you can't be looking forward to this series or that series," he said. Torre's RBI-double in the first scored Ted Sizemore, who had singled and taken second on a walk to Ted Simmons. "When I gave up that run it made me try all the harder." said Rooker. "I know McGlothen is the kind of pitcher who might only need one run to win." Oliver opened Pittsburgh's two-run fourth with a double. Willie Stargell then hit a grounder that was deflected by McGlothen and field by Tyson, whose errant throw eluded Torre at first and enabled Oliver to score. Stargell was thrown out at second on the play, but Dave Parker followed with a single and took third on a single by Manny Sanguillen. Parker then scored when Ed Kirkpatrick's bloop to center was dropped by Tyson, who nonetheless managed to throw to second for the forceout on Sanguillen. McGlothen left Guy ton. HB Pasquino Schutte, Pierce, Hawthorne. NO Doggan Meredith, A STINGY BUNCH — Mt. Vernon's defensive unit has allowed only 12 points in the Rams' first two games — six each to Cahokia and Herrin.

Relief pitcher Rick Folkers then walked Richie Hebner on four pitches before Oliver belted a long fly to left. Cardinal outfielder Lou Brock, who stole his 110th base in the fifth-inning to extend his season record, backpedaled and attempted to change direction at the last moment at the ball struck the base of the wall for a two-run double. The Cardinals close out their three-game series here tonight. "It's not necessarily a MUST game for us," said Oliver, "but it's a game we had better win." "We'll be back," pledged Torre.

By BERT ROSENTHAL AP Sports Writer Doesn't anybody want to win the West in the National League? Neither the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers nor the runner-up Cincinnati Reds, the two winningest teams in baseball, are acting like pennant contenders. Both lost for the second straight time Wednesday night, leaving the Dodgers with a 2' i>game lead. Los Angeles was beaten by the Houston Astros 32 in 10 innings and Cincinnati dropped a 6-5 decision to the San Diego Padres. Meanwhile, the National League East race tightened, the Pittsburgh Pirates whittling St. Louis' lead to 1M> games, beating the Cardinals 4-1. Elsewhere in the National League, the Montreal Expos swept a doubleheader from the New York Mets 3-2 and 4-0, the Chicago Cubs topped the Philadelphia Phillies 5-2 and the Atlanta Braves downed the San Francisco Giants 4-2. Rookie outfielder Greg Gross was Houston's hero. He started an uprising in the eighth inning when the Astros broke a scoreless tie with two runs. He threw out the potential winning run at the plate in the ninth inning, and he scored the winning run in the 10th. The Dodgers, shackled by Larry Dierker on four hits through eight innings, tied it dramatically in the nintn on Steve Garvey's single and Ken McMullen's pinch homer off reliever Mike Cosgrove. Then, Ron Cey greeted reliever Ken Forsch with a double, and Rick Auerbach was sent in as a pinch runner. Joe Ferguson followed with a single to right, but Gross fired a perfect strike to the plate, cutting down Auerbach. In the 10th, with Charlie Hough pitching for the Dodgers, Gross cracked a single and raced home with the winning run on Bob Watson's double. The Reds' chances of winning the West for the third straight year diminished. Cincinnati has 12 games remaining and Los Angeles 13. Light-hitting Enzo Hernandez, who said he never had driven in more than two runs in a game, knocked in four for San Diego. Hernandez singled home two runs in the fifth inning, giving the Padres a 3-1 lead, then doubled in two runs in the seventh, producing a 5-5 deadlock. Hernandez eventually scored the winning run on John Grubb's sacrifice fly. Expos 3-4. Mets 2-0 The Expos won the opener with a two-run seventh inning, capped by Tim Foli's run-scoring squeeze bunt single.
