"We needed some momentum and lie gave it to us," said Cardinal coach Boh Hollway after St. Louis had pulled the game out on Van Galder's five-for-eight completions for 82 yards, including the touchdown pass. Van Galder was more fortunate than another rookie, running back Ray Jamieson of the Oakland llaiden. Jamieson suffered a broken neck during the Raiders' ?A-9 romp over the Los Angeles Rams in their nationally televised game. * Jamieson underwent surgery for more than two hours and was reported "doing quite well" Sunday with no evidence of paralysis.

By JOE MOOSHIL CHICAGO (AP) - The Sunday magic the Chicago White Sox save for their home games finally ran out but, as Manager Chuck Tanner put it, "We're in first place and there's not a lot of teams that can say that." The White Sox found themselves in a tie for first with Oakland in the American Oiler f rosh to get equipment WOOD RIVER — Head, football Coach Carl Crawford of ,\Vqod Hiver High School' has announced freshman football candidates are to pick up equipment at the school Wednesday, starting at 9 a.m. Recreation results AT ALTON City Open Slow Pitch Sprlngman 24, A-l Realty 9 Stauffers 9, Patriots 8 Flyers won forfeit from Cinderella Raiders won forfeit from Mid- dlcton Scorpions 13, Harder 11 Braves 12.

Howard Weaver was the winning pitcher, and he had a homer. Dave Camaghi also homered for the winners. The marks will next play Tuesday at 8:15 p.m. in the single elimination tourney.

They won the Central Division in the American Football Conference. dropped the nightcap 5-4 when centerfielder Buddy Bradford failed to make what would have been a fine running catch of Carl Yaslrzemski's liner which went for a three run double in (he fifth inning. Still, the White Sox had a parting shot when Walt Williams beat out an infield hit to open the ninth inning. Bradford, however, hit into a double play before Dick Allen smashed his 30th homer to bring the White Sox with in one run. Mike Andrews grounded out to end the game. The White Sox clubhouse, which had been ringing with cheers and laughter following the first game, was understandably subdued after the second game. "Makes no difference," said Kelly. "We've got a great bunch of guys and we never give up. We got ;i shot at all the marbles, man. We're in first place and we intend to stay there." In Sunday's original script, the White Sox intended fo feed the Heel Sox a double knuckle sandwich by pitching Wilbur Wood and F.oldie Fisher, their recent acquisition from the California Angeles. Wood, seeking his 22nd victory, was staked to a 5-1 load but couldn't hang on. He left in the eighth inning in favor of Terry Forster and the score 5-3. Forster fanned the last two batters but while doing so uncorked a wild pitch to allow Boston its fourth run. In the ninth, the Red Sox struck for three more runs. Then came tho wild bottom of the ninth. With two on, two out and one run in, Kelly worked the count to 1-2 and smashed a Marty Patlin pitch f.ver the centerfield barrier for his third homer of the season. Yastrzemski, who had taken an hour of .vrtra batting practice after Saturday's game, saw it pay off when he cleared tho bases with a line shot of a Fisher knuckler. "I'm still hinging at the ball." said the Boston super star, "that's why I took all of that batting practice. I hope it. helps. We're very much in our race. Anybody in our division who puts together a winning streak will finish in first place." Tanner, meanwhile, wanted to know who was pitching in Monday night's game between Oakland and Detroit. "You know, we've only got 39 games left," said Tanner "And Oakland has 40. That's because of the games lost in the strike. We lost one more than they did on the schedule. So that game tomorrow night could make a lot of difference." The Write Sox are idle Monday and close their current home stand with a two game set against the New York Yankees beginning Tuesday night.
