Flag y MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer The Los Angeles Dodgers have stolen several steps closer to a National League pennant, and things are going so smoothly that even a right-handed pitcher can win. Aided by a supporting cast that stole five bases, Don Drysdalc reduced the Dodgers' magic number to three Friday night with a seven-hit, 2-0 victory over Pittsburgh that made him the first Los Angeles right-hander to break into the victory column in 14 games.

Any combination of Dodger victories and Cardinal losses totaling three will clinch the pennant. Drysdale, who hadn't won since Aug. 30, brought his record to 1817 as he struck out three, walked none and did not permit a runner past second base. Left-handers had received credit for the Dodgers' last 13 victories. Tommy Davis took over first place in the struggle for the National League batting title with a .324 mark. Davis stroked three singles in four trips, overhauling Dick Groat, who went l-for-4 in St. Louis' loss and slipped to .322. Roberto Clemente of the Pirates and San Francisco's Orlando Cepeda are tied for third at ,320. Davis scored the Dodgers' first run, sliding home in the second inning on the front end of a triple steal. Maury Wills stole third in the fifth and raced home on a wild throw by catcher Smoky Burgess. At Cincinnati, the Cardinals were held to three singles by John Tsitouris and lost their fourth straight. Ken Walters, a .200 hitter drove in the only run off Ray Sadecki with a single in the fourth inning following a two-out double by Don Pavletich and an infield hit by Tommy Harper. Juan Marichal won his 24th with the support of a four-homer barrage as San Francisco handed the New York Mets their eighth loss in a row, 6-3; Dick Ellsworth's three-hit pitching and an eighth- inning homer by Andre Rodgers gave the Chicago Cubs a 1-0 victory over Milwaukee, and Houston beat terest to move.

The Braves apparently would be willing to wait for construction of a planned 45,000-seat park - expected to be ready by the 1966 season — because they have been sold on the idea that Atlanta is the fastest growing metropolis in the country. The big lure is a radio and television network deal, ranging over 32 states, that would provide the Braves with $1.5 million annually for the first five years. "I don't see how the Braves can turn down that offer," said the Milwaukee baseball source.

Oakland, winner of two straight, is at home to the Bos­ ton Patriots and the New York Jets make their home bow against the Houston Oilers. San Diego and Denver are idle.

The Lions intercepted four Los Angeles passes last week and the Packers' Starr saw four of his intercepted by the Bears. If Green Bay has trouble on the ground— the Packers ran for only 77 yards against the Bears—Starr must show great improvement or the may suffer a second straight defeat.
