Bobby Bonds, Ken Henderson extend greetings {AP Wirephofo) Giants on Hunt For Mound Help SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-Given some breathing room with an assist from the Montreal -Expos, the San Francisco Giants are desperately searching {or pitching help as they head into the National League West stretch drive. The Giants show only eight active pitchers today, an off day following Sunday's 6-1 rout of the New York Mets on J u a n Marichal's five-hitter and home runs by Bobby Bonds and Willie Mays. "We're combing the waiver list," said Manager Charlie Fox, whose Giants begin a two-game series with the Phil- ade'.phia Phillies T u e s d a y night. "It was beautiful to pick up two games on "the Dodgers this weekend," Fox conceded, "but we can't go with eight EXPERIENCE Mauch Sees Dodgers As Winners LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Experience counts for quite a bit in the book of veteran Manager Gene Mauch and that's why he picks the Los Angeles Podgers to beat San Francisco for the National League West title. His Montreal Expos dropped the Dodgers 6-3 Sunday, pushing Los Angeles six games back of the Giants. "I like the Dodgers primarily because of the bullpen," Mauch said. "They've got some guys w h o ' v e been through this b e f o r e --J i m Brewer, Pete Mikkelsen and now Hoyt Wilhelm-- while the Giants are going mostly with Jerry Johnson. · "He's having a big year, true, but when the pressure really hits, it might be a different story. "It's going to boil down to what the Giants and Dodgers do against each other," he said. "I read where (Dodgers Manager) Walter Alston said it doesn't matter if the Dodgers catch up right now or not. They've still got to win it in S e p t e m b e r. He's exactly right." pitchers, so something should happen by Wednesday." The Giants, who lead the division by six games, would like a reliever, but Fox isn't fussy. "It would be ideal to get a reliever, but even a starter would do--and it would help if he's left-handed," says Fox. If a major leaguer cannot be acquired, the Giants likely will seek help from their Phoenix farm. club. Mays, whose three-run homer in the seventh was the 644th of his career and his first since July 18, admitted he's somewhat tired these days and would like an occasional rest, like Mie one Fox said he's planning to give the Say Hey Kid in Philadelphia. "I felt great this weekend," said Mays, "because I was well rested. I just need rest from time to time to play better." Planned By Pirates P I T T S B U R G H (AP) "One of the funny things about us Irish," said Pittsburgh Pirates Manager Danny Murtaugh, "is that we always wait until the patient is dead to have a wake. "If you think the Pirates are dead, you're in for a rude awakening. Every club I've ever managed has had slumps like this one," he said. "And I've said all along this is going to be a dog race." Murtaugh's Pirates aren't dead -- they have a four-game lead in the National League East -- but their record in the last three weeks is rather sick. They have lost 13 of 17 games. The St. Louis Cardinals, buoyed by Matty Alou's three- run homer in the eighth inning, defeated them 6-4 Sunday. Alou's homer negated two homers by Willie Stargell--he hadn't hit one since Aug. 5-which drove in three runs. Alou, traded by Pittsburgh after helping the Bucs to the National League East crown last year, says he has no hard feelings. "Beating the Pirates is just like beating any other club in first place," he said. "But if we don't win the pennant, I'd like to see them win it." ATLANTA W -- Outfielder Jim Wynn of the Houston Astros says it's "about time I started helping this club some." And Wynn did just that Sunday as he banged a seventh-inning single to score two runs and lift the Astros to a 5-4 decision over the Atlanta Braves. "I used to be considered 'a dangerous hitter," Wynn said, "so I sort of expected to be walked when. I came to bat with two runners in scoring position and the pitcher up next. But I guess their manager thought I would pop up again like I've been doing so often." Wynn's single to left scored Houston's Denis Menke and Bob Watson.

Houston jumped to a 2-0 lead in the second when a single by Watson was followed by Doug Rader's home run. Atlanta made it 2-1 in the fourth when Ralph Garr scored on a single by Earl Williams, then tied it in the fifth when Sonny Jackson doubled home Marty Perez. The Braves took' a .4-2 advantage on a pair of solo homers in the sixth. Henry Aaron opened the inning with his 32nd home run of the year, extending his hitting streak to 22 consecutive games. Williams, one out later, blasted his 22nd homer of the season and fourth during the four- game series with the Astros. Houston cut the margin to 4-3 in the seventh when Menke scored on a long sacrifice fly by pinch hitter Larry Howard. Culver, 5-6, notched the victory while Cecil.Upshaw, 9-6, was charged with the loss.
