Cubs Caught With No Bats, Redlegs Win CHICAGO (AP)—The Chicag Cubs were caught with their bats down Wednesday night in Cincinnati and dropped a 3-3 decision to the Reds' and pitcher Joey Jay. They now are in fourth place, 'i games behind leading Los Angeles and T 2 under third place St. Louis. Al Wortliington and Bill Henry came to Jay's rescue in the ninth to preserve his first victory in more than a month. With one out and after a walk and Dick Be> tell's double, Worthington came in. Andre Rodgers walked to load I the bases but pinch batter Leo Burke lined out. Henry then went to the mound and fanned pinch baiter Steve Boros. The Reds collected all their live scoreless innings going for him. Then wham. Thomas connected with a fast ball and sent it screaming high and far toward the left field stands. It seemed destined lo reach the seats in the upper tier. "I was sure it was gone," Dodger Manager Walt Alslon said later. "So was I," admitted Podres. "I was sure it was a homer. I thoughl il would hit the facade between the upper and lower slands." II did nol. Almost but .-iot quite.

On the surface, there appeared little cause for the elation shown by the veteran Los Angeles Dodger southpaw. Sure, he had won a game. But it was against the Mets, the same drab, inept New York outfit that had blown 10 straight before Wednesday night's meeting wilh the league-leading Dodgers. But the 30-year-old Podres had in the ninth inning—or so it seemed—and he started walking dejectedly toward the clubhouse, 2-1 loser. But before he hoc caught the ball high over his head.

It was the play of the year as far as Podres was concerned. The leading characters in il, besides joyful Johnny, were Frank Thomas and Tommy Davis. Johnny Roseboro's eighth inning homer, a low line drive that barely cleared the lower right field fence, had given the Dodgers their slim edge against Met right- hander Carl Willey. The Mets were batting in the ninth with one out and pinch runner Al Jackson on first base. Up to that point, Podres had a three-hit shutout and 22 consecu- rounding third. Podres ran to first base, tlien tossed to Ron Fairly for the double play. "The only reason I caught the ball was because J was on second, on the way to the clubhouse," said Podres.
