SPORTS Unser From Goat to Hero ••tlltM*IMMMM*IMItlM»ltll*IMIIIM«tlltlttlM Timei Herald, Carroll, la. Tuetday, April 20, 1976 By The Associated Press With one wave of his wand. Del Unser made a baseball disappear and at the same time changed himself from a goat into a hero. A misplay by the New York centerfielder allowed two St. Louis runs in the first inning, but he made up for it in the 17th with a home run that provided the Mcts with a 4-3 victory Monday night. "When you get into extra innings, there's no sense fooling around," said Unser, who pulverized a Mike Wallace fastball with two out to break up a marathon four-hour. 46-minutegame. The shot heard 'round Busch Stadium settled a dramatic battle which had been tied by the Cardinals in the seventh inning, some two hours before. Unser went up to the plate with one thing in mind: "I was just thinking of swinging at the ball and swinging hard." Wallace said later he was just thinking of one thing, too: Throwing a fastball on the first pitch to get ahead. "He's the type of guy that wanted to get ahead." said Unser. who once played with Wallace on the Philadelphia Phillies. "If he had, he's got a good fork ball, and a good curve and he would have been tough to hit." Extra-inning games are old hat between the Cardinals and Mets. Two years ago. they played a seven-hour. 25-inning affair at Shea Stadium, the longest night game in baseball history.

Expos 4, Cubs 3 Pete Mackanin's two-run homer in the fourth inning and Mike Jorgensen's RBI double in the seventh carried Montreal past Chicago. Mackanin's belt, following a walk to Tim Foli, was the 13th of his career but ironically only the first with a man on base. "I took a lot of kidding from my teammates about that," said Mackanin, "but I think I took a lot of the pressure off this spring when I hit one with two men on." Angels 9, Orioles 4 Bobby Bonds made his debut with California by drilling three singles and stealing a base and the Angels erupted with a 13-hit attack 'to rout Baltimore in a game .marred by a beanball war.

Moments earlier, Angels catcher Andy Etchebarren, a former Oriole, was hit by Baltimore reliever Wayne Garland. That came after Dave Chalk broke up a close game with a bases-loaded triple and then scored himself when he crashed into Baltimore catcher Dave Duncan, knocking the ball loose. Manager Earl Weaver of the Orioles was ejected following the melee, during which no punches were thrown but which had players streaming from both dugouts and bullpens.
