Steve Carlton was. having little trouble disposing of the Giant batters. '' .

Enter Willie McCovey. The big Giant slugger delivered a slow grounder up the middle into center field and suddenly ;he game was tied. Now Willie is not exactly the fastest man in' the world. Last year, for example, he stole just three bases. Imagine the Cards' surprise, therefore, when they looked up and found McCovey grinning at them from second. Mays' turn. Carefully, the fabled slugger worked Carlton to a 3-2 count and then sent a single through the third-base side of the diamond, scoring McCovey. '...'. In. other . National League games Friday night, Los Angeles edged Cincinnati 4-3, Houston beat Atlanta 5-3 and Philadelphia nudged Pittsburgh 3-2. The New York Mets and Chicago Cubs were rained out. The Giants' victory cut the Cardinal's league lead to 2% games over the San Francis* cans- Juan Marichal, who went the distance,, ran his re.gord.tQ 4-1. Carlton i§ now 2-1, Mike Shannon also homered for St. Louis.

Mike Ryan's single in/the njnth drove in the. winning run for the Phillies after Rich Allen and John Briggs singled and Bill White walked, all with two out. By HAL BOCK .

Stephenspn spent a good part if the second inning of Boston's ;ame against Oakland on his knees, creeping around the mound searching for a contact ens. He never did locate it but he Athletics found him, all right, They battered Stephenson and four successors for 15 hits and a 7-2 romp over the Red Sox. In other American League ;ames, Cleveland shut out Minnesota 4-0, California flij>j "d Detroit 6-5 and Baltimore belted Washington 6-1. McCraw had contributed a double to a two-run White Sox rally that staked Joe Horlen to an early lead. Then came the fateful third inning.

And McCraw had fled a record for errors by a first baseman in one inning. Mickey Mantle was intentionally :walked and Andy Kosco's single delivered two runs, enabling the Yankees to take the lead. ""'.*'* *: Monbouquette, discarded a year ago as washed up, won his fourth game in five decisions. Horlen, a 19-game winner in 1967, dropped his fifth straight.
