LOUIS (AP) -- A lelltale vjxscore notwithstanding, Ted immons says the St. Louis Jardiiials' bullpen sparkled Fri *ay night. And if you want to discount a 8 score, tbe Cards' 2'1-year-old catcher had a point after sicar- leading his team's victory over ho Chicago Cubs. "Mike Garman came in anc got a big oul," said Simmons, vho pounded his Ihird home run and laler smacked a game ivinning sacrifice fly. "Al Hrabosky got another." le added, " a n d then Ihe old .nan came in and f i n i s h e d il out. Man. that's w h a t you call pil'jhing." The "old man" lo whom Simmons referred was JS-yrar-old Orlando Pena, whose forkballs f i n a l l y muffled a 14-hil Cub al lack in the ninth inning. · Rut before the respite were harrowing times for starter Alan Foster and a succession ol three earlier relievers. Simmons' llirce-run homer helped slake the Cards to a 5-0 lead that became 6-1 before Bil ifth. Foster y Williams connected for his si.\th homer in a Ihree-run Cub departed in favor of Rich. Folkcrs with the Score 6-4. Then Garman bailed out Gol- kors after two more runs provided the Cards an 8-4 bulge. Chicago, however. nicked Garman for a run in the seventh and an inning later abused the 24-year-old righthander and Hrabosky before Pena, 2-0, halted a rally with the score 88. That brought on luckless Bit Bonharn, 2-7. as the [ifth Cub pitcher. Ted Sizcmore started ,hc Cardinals eighth with a single, was replaced by Luis promptly balked Hie runner to second. Jose Cruz then moved Melendcz to third wilh a g r o u n d e r a n d Simmons slammed a deep fly lo left-center field that easily chased home the- run. "He said I pivoted and didn'l step toward the base," the disconsolate Bonahm lamented in reference to first base u m p i r e Paul Runge's balk signal. "We figure he didn't balk bul it was the umpire's judg men!," Lickman noted philosophically. "They told us befor* the game they had their direc- ions and anytime we squawked about a balk we'd be thrown out." Missing the proceedings was Schucnclicnst, who was in South Bend, Ind.. to attend his daughter's college graduation. "In (his kind of game, with everything that happened." Cards pitching coach Barney Sehultz shrugged. "1 guess you can figure it would wind up this way." _ As Cincy Claims 4-2 Victory Norman Shackles Astros By THE ASSOCIATED I'RKSS In a hospital hundreds of miles from the Houston Astro dome, a 78 year-old father of eight listened to a ball game on his transistor radio.
