And, boy, did he have to take it Tuesday night. The. Houston slugger was hit in the face by a pitch and then battered in the back with a throw. But while the. San Diego Padres were hurting Watson a little with the ball, he was hurting them a lot with his bat — driving in four runs to pace a 4-1 Houston victory. "The ball hit the rim of my glasses," said Watson of the pitch from Rich Folkers that drove his glasses into his nose. "I sort of expected to get hit by the pitch." The brush-back pitch occurred in the seventh, after Watson had dpne all his damage in the first five innings. Then, moments later, Watson was hit by the ball again — this time while trying to break up a potential double play. When Watson slid hard into second on a ground ball, San Diego shortstop Enzo Hernandez threw his relay at the burly Houston runner and touched off a bench- clearing brawl. Watson and Hernandez started fighting before the rest of the players came on the field. In the other National League games, the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1; the San Francisco Giants routed the Cincinnati Reds 9-4; the New York Mets whipped the Philadelphia Phillies 4-1 and the Chicago Cubs blanked the Montreal Expos 50. Rain postponed the Los Angeles-Atlanta game. Pirates 3, Cardinals 1 Frank Taveras scored the winning run on Willie Stargell's sacrifice fly in the eighth inning, leading Pittsburgh over St. Louis. Taveras!. run snapped a 1-1 pitching duel between the Cards' Pete Falcone, 6-11, and the Pirates' Bruce Kison, 8-6, who survived 11 St. Louis hits with the aid of two double plays. Giants 9, Reds 4 San Francisco battered Jack Billingham after being held hitless for four innings, scoring six runs in the fifth inning, and crushed Cincinnati behind Darrell Evans' three hits and three RBI. Evans included a two-run homer in his night's work to support Jim Barr's pitching. Barr, the only San Francisco starter with a winning record, boosted his record to 9-6, allowing seven hits and four runs in 72-3 innings. Mets 4, Phillies 1 .Roy Staiger keyed two New York rallies and the Mets used only six hits to beat Phila- delphia. Staiger singled and scored the first New York run in the fifth, when the Mets scored twice. The Mets added two more runs in the sixth with Staiger delivering a sacrifice fly. Bob Myrick, 1-0, the second of three Mets' pitchers, earned the victory while Tom Underwood, 6-3, took the loss. Cubs 5, Expos 0 Ray Burris tossed a three-hitter and Chicago scored four runs in the first inning as the Cubs snapped a four-game losing streak by blanking Montreal. Burris, 6-11, faced a minimum 18 batters through the first six innings as Wayne Garrett, who singled in the first, was erased on a double play. The Chicago hurler did not allow another runner until Garrett singled with one out in the seventh.

LOUIS (AP) — For a pitcher with a .141 lifetime average, the Pittsburgh Pirates' Bruce Kison was adopting a serious stance toward hitting. "I tried to take advantage of my speed and the fact they were playing in," Kison explained Tuesday night after contributing to a 3-1 defeat of the St. Louis Cardinals with his bat. "In '72 I led the team with hitting and I had 13 RBI," he maintained in the absence of record books that could be consulted to repudiate his claim. "Last year I was a little bit disappointed," added the birdishly built right-hander. "It wasn't that I didn't try. I went out there swinging for home runs, which is a lot of fun to do but not very realistic." Kison, who began the night batting .188 for the season, watched the Cards glean 10 6f the game's 12 hits until he led off the Pirates' eighth in a 1-1 tie.

Then, after battling left- hander Pete Falcone to a full count, he squibbed a grounder to the right side of the infield and won a chase to first base. Frank Taveras forced Kison with a bunt intended as a sacrifice, but Rennie Stennett 'singled off reliever Al Hrabosky and Al Oliver drew a walk before Willie Stargell drove the winning sacrifice fly. In the final inning, after . Manny Sanguillen had singled and advanced to second on Don Kessinger's throwing error, Kison insured the Pittsburgh triumph • by punching an RBI single through a drawn-in infield. "I've always been serious about my hitting," contended Kison, who until the late action had been more concerned about what St. Louis hitters were doing to his pitches. "It was a long evening," he conceded of an 11-hitter made even more arduous by three Cards singles in each the first and fifth innings. "It would have been longer, but we had some good fielding plays," he added. "There were a.lot of big plays. I could have"been showered and dressed in the second inning." Lou Brock walked, stole second, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on Bake McBride's sacrifice fly in the opening inning before the St. Louis attack began.
