Young Card Hurler Unruffled Hy TUB ASSOCIATED I'KKSS V i c Kaschi and Lynn McGluthcn are Irom two d i f f e r - ent baseball eras, but Hank Aan bridged t h e i r generation ip Tuesday night. Babe R u t h was a seemingly unrcachablc 713 homers away on April 23, 1934, when Aaron started hts homer brigade in St. Louis, belting No. 1 off Uaschi. Twenty years. 710 home runs and 1,399 extra base hits later, St. Louis was Ihe site of another Aaron home run. this one served up by McGlothcn. "Why should 1 worry about his 720th," said McGlothcn. who helped pitch the Cardinals lo a 7-2 victory over the Braves. "He'd hit 719 of them before. 1 ' Elsewhere in t h e National League t h e Houston A s t r o s downed the Chicago Cubs "3-2; the San Diego Padres shaded the Montreal Expos 2-1; the But Cardinals Win Anyway Aaron Gets Number 720 ST. LOUIS (AP) - Ham-' rneriri' H a n k Aaron's 720th car e e r hnme run failed to faze young St. Louis Cardinals right-, bander Lynn McGlothcn Tues- d a y night. | \Vhat surprised the 24-year-' ok] McGiothcn, who tamed the A t l a n t a Braves 7-2 despite the wallop, was that Aaron hadn't connected earlier. "He hit a fast ball out over t h e p l a t e , 1 1 confirmed McGlothcn, who until Aaron connected had! pitched a threc- h i t shutout, "I'd been giving him fast bath all night, 1 1 he added. "The f i r s t lime up I don't know why lie missed thcrn but he did." The recipient of a .standing ovation d u r i n g a pro-game ceremony, Aaron struck out ingloriously on a 2-2 McGlothcn delivery in the second itming and fouled oul two innings late I'll! the seventh, before he led off. the Cards had forged a 5-0 lead when the 40-year-old slugger again strolled to the plate. Aaron worked the count to 21, and then slammed a delivery on a line into his favorite lerri- tory well off the foul line and over the left field fence. AARON A M A Z I N G "He slill me," com- menled Braves Manager Eddie Matthews iti respect to the wallop, Aaron's seventh among his 11 hits this season. "Everyone by now has seen the replay of his 715lh," Matthews added, ''hut we're stiII seeing them on the field. I ' l l never cease being amazed." As prodigious as was the Aaron blast, however, a shot an i n n i n g later by the Cards' Lou Brnck nearly dwarfed it. The Braves' Buzz Capra walked Mike Tyson with one out and Cards reliefer Al Hra bosky grounded into a force play before Brock teed o f f . His 430-foot drive landed high in the right (ield bleachers and without the barrier the ball might have rolled into the nearby Mississippi Rivr. ' "IL wasn't even coming down when it landed," marvled C a r d s M a n a g e r Red Schoendienst. "Aaron h i t the heck out of the ball, bul Brock flattened it." During the prc-gamc ceremony, Hall of Famed Stan Mu.sia! presented Aaron a plaque commemorating Ihe Atlanta star's first major league homer. Both Musiul. whose National League record of 3,630 hits Aar n n i s c h a s i n g , a n d SchoendiensL were Cardinals when Aaron connected off Vic Raschi here in April 1954. "A lot of good things have happened in 20 years," Aaron acknowledged. "I'm just grateful for the opportunities I've had." New York Mets edged the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-7^ the Philadelphia Phillies nipped the SHU Prancisco Giants 6-5. and the Cincinnati Reds-Pittsburgh PL- rates game was rained out. Red Schoendk'iist has had to play and manage against Aaron. He has seen many of tha 45 homers Aaron has hit off St. Louis pitching. ASTKAS -I, CUHS 2 The Astros scored 14 less runs than t i i c y did Monday night but still had enough lo win the game. J o h n n y Edwards single knocked in LQee May with the tic-breaking run in the eighth i n n i n g , sending the Cubs Ui their seventh los.s in eight games. METS 8, DODGERS 7 The Meis frittered away a fi-0 lead, then field on lo snap (he Dodgers' seven-game winning streak. John Milncr cracked a t i e - b r e a k i n g , two-run double in the top of the n i n t h lo snap a fi-fi tic. P H I L S fi, GIANTS 5 Mike Schmidt doubled homo one run and scored another on Hill Robinson's single to give Philadelphia the victory over San Francisco. PAD11KS 2, EXPOS 1 Derrcl Thomas doubled home the tie-breaking run in the sixth and Bill Grcif teamed with Vincente Romo on an eight-hitter, pacing San Diego to the victory.
