(AP) - The crowd of 25,430 booed ex-Houston Astro Rusty Staub when he came to the plate here Friday night. " But when it was over Staub had a two-run homer and the Montreal Espos had a 3-2 vie- tory over the Astros and a slip, pery grip on first place in the National League East. The crowd was the largest yet this year In the Dome, drawn by the current Astro playing and "old fashion night' which offered beer for just five cents. But for the Expos, the heady stuff was not In a cup but IP the 12 percentage points which put them infirst place in their division in this young season. It took the two-run homer by Staub. the six-hit-chunking of Carl Morton and the final-out relief work of ex-Astro Mike Marshall to put them there. The loser was Don Wilson. Staub, shunted off to become a millionaire in Canada in a controversial trade, touched off a three-run uprising in the sixth inning to make a-loser out of Wilson. He would admit to no special feeling in clubbing the Astros with a home run hammer. . "This Is my third year away from here," saidStaub, the man the Canadians call La Grande Orange, "and there is always a little twinge of something or other when you come back. '1 made a lot of friends here and I made my home here, and when I come back here, I think of the people I know and of having played here for six years." "Naturally, I want to do good,"sald Staub. "I've got my folks in the stands and all the others I know here, so it's nice to do something like this." Staub's parents,Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Staub, came in from New Orleans to watch the game, he said. Staub's blast, his second homer, triggered the three run spree. Uvalcfe locked in a first place dead-hear at 3-1. San Felipe rests in the runnerup spot with a 2-2 tab and Dei Rip shares the show place at 1-3 with Crystal City. The Uvaide Coyotes outlasted the Del Rio Wildcats for a 6-5, 16-inning Honey Capital victory and the San Felipe Mustangs put a 13-3 convtncer on the Crystal City Javelins in the Spinach Capitol. Kerrville was idle. Tuesday's games pit Kerrville with Crystal and Uvaide against San Felipe as Del Rio takes an early week respite.
