Manager Mathews Gets First Win McClain Survives Astro Rally By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "I lind the old at 'cm pitch · tonight," Denny McLain grinned--and because of It, Eddie Malhews bad his best night as mantigpr of the Atlanln Braves, "That at 'em pilch--it's the best pitch in baseball, All you do Is throw it nt 'em and let em hit it 'cause it's the quickest out.", iV :,,';, i . · " . . ' : For seven'Innings, Denny had ·· cm .baffled at tho plate, giving .' Houston one measly h i t , Then "the Astros caught up with McLain, putting together six / m o r e hits for four runs in the ' . f i n a l two innings. · ' But it was much loo late. At- -·· lanla had erupted for five runs ·;· in the first Inning alone and V-breezed to an .8-T triumph that ·» "gave Mathews his first victory at the liclm--and In his home ·;.'debut at that. "·'· In other National League games, Cincinnati outlasted Log Angeles 2-1 In 19''innings--the longest Rame in the leaguo this season--Pittsburgh defeated Philadelphia l-2, illie Chicago Cubs nipped Montreal 6-5, St. Louis edged the New York Mcls 6-5 nnd San Francisco swept a Iwl-night rtoublehcader from San Diego 15-4 and V-3. Tuesday night's triumph for Mathews was quite a switch from Monday night, when Ihe Braves were clobbered 9-1 In Cincinnati only hours after he'd replaced the fired Ltiman Harris. "The big difference," Eddie explained, "was that everybody on the learn was a lltlle more relaxed and feeling a llltle better. I know I was, A two-run wild pitch by Don Wilson followed by Dusty Baker's two-run homer did the heavy first-inning damage anc Earl Williams homered In the second. , . .-.'".'...· Los Angeles Manager Walter Alston was stoical after Ills marathon loss to the Reds that dumped the Dodgers, third In the West, a full 10 games'back of Cincinnati. "···'· ' ' · "By simple deduction," he said, "wo have to win 10'more than Ihem lo He them : and one more than that If we're gonna beat 'em out! I'd say we were in about the sqme position we were a year ago--or maybe a little worse off." In fact, the Dodgers were only 4V4 games back of San Francisco a year ago before falling one game short of catching the Giants. Although the Reds struck out 22 times to tie the league record for an exlra-innlng game, they got the hits when they needed them in the 19th inning--Denis Menke's double and Joe Hague's pinch-single for the winning run. Willie Stargoll linllmborcd his muscles again for the Pirates, bashing bis 27th. homer of the season and fifth In four games. The three-run shot raised his league-leading ruh-baltcd-ln total to 89. Bui he shrugged off his sudden; splurge. ··· -^~, '· "We don't.'nave the type of ball club Unit has U depend on any one ., individual,", Willie said. "You liavclp give a lot of credli to the guys who hat In the icadoff spots, It!seems like there are always men on first and second when you come to the plate. That gives players like me the opportunity 16 drive in runs." , Two-run homers by Jim Hickman and Billy Williams led the Cubs' attack against Montreal. Ferguson Jenkins . also kickcc in with a solo shot * as he recorded ills 15th victory of the year. Luis Mclcndcz cracked his fourth homer, a two-run shol off reliever Ray. Sadcckl, lo cala'pult' Ihc Cardinals past the Metij, who dropped 9'/z games back of Ihe Pirates In the East. It was also Mclendcz' first homer since June 24--when he tagged Sadccki for a grand- slammci'. The Giants had their biggest one-game run splurge of Ihs season and their biggest inning In their opener against lh Padres, pouring across eigh runs In Ihc fourth inning lo wipe out a 4-4 tie, Two-run sin gles by Willie McCovcy and Frank Rcbergcr and a two-run double by Dnvc Kingman high lighted the outburst. They made it a sweep with a four-run fifth Inning in Ihi nighlcap, Ed Goodson capplnt Ihe rally with a three-run homer after, Chris S p e l e r ' h a snapped a 2-2 tie with a single.

"But I thought I deserved a ! better chance. I worked hard," ' added Hines, acclaimed the ; world's fastest human after · winning the 100-meter dash in the 1968 Summer Olympic · Games at Mexico City. Hines' Olympic glory faded into disappointment Tuesday, when he was cut by Ihe Oakland Raiders of Ihe National . Football League. It probably ·ended his brief and undislin- . guished pro football career. · After two unproductive seasons as a wide receiver and a kick returner, he was cut by ~. the Miami Dolphins in 1970. ;· The Kansas Cily Chiefs picked . him up, Ihen dropped him last season. Tuesday was the day NFL _ clubs had lo reach the 60-player : limit--not counting players who participated in Ihe recent Col'. lege All-Star game against the Dallas Cowboys' -- and there were other notable additions anjd substractions. r The New England Patriots cut nine players, including eight-year veteran quarterback Mike Taliaferro. Taliaferro, who fired 19 touchdown passes in 1969, tying him with Joe'Namath for the lead in.the old American Football League, did not participate in a single play last season. Rookie Jim Plunkelt called every offensive play for the Pats. Little Dick Post, the AFL's rushing leader in 1969 with 853 yards, was waived by the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was attempting a comeback after undergoing a third operation on his right knee. The Philadelphia Eagles cut veteran linebacker Doug Woodlief and placed linebacker Adrian Young a n d rookie safety Bobby Majors on the injured reserve list. Young has a sprained ankle' and Majors is recuperating from tonsilitis. The St. Louis Cardinals ac quired offensive, tackle Steve Wright and defensive lineman John Hoffman from the Chicago Bears, for an undisclosed draft choice, released rookie running back Junior Riggons of Kansas and placed six players, including quarterback Jim Hart arid running back Larry Stegent, on injured waivers. To replace Wright, the Bears obtained veteran Rich Buzin from the Los Angeles Rams for a future draft choice. Elbert Drungo, Houston's starting .offensive ,right tackle the past two season, was lost for the year after undergoing surgery to repair ligament damage in his right knee. Defensive tackle Gene Ferguson, who walked out of camp two weeks ago, was suspended by the Oilers. And wide receiver Billy Parks, traded to Dallas last week by San Diego in the Duane Thomas deal, reported lo the Cowboys' camp Tuesday. League Leaders By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AMERICAN LEAGUE .
