"Â·We're playing Dodger base- ia!l," said Carl Morton, who was the pitching survivor in a duel at 60.6 paces with the Mets' Harry Parker. "Good de fense, great bullpen, bunting and managing to get two or three runs and win." Then Morton sighed ant added: "It's excellent bascbal if only our hearts can hold out." Morton's concern for the Braves' hearts is under standable. The Braves squeezed iy the New York Mets 1-0 Wednesday nighl for their fifth Â·Â·ictory in six games and 19th .n their last 26. but are stil Â·unning far behind the pace-set ing Dodgers in the Nationa League West. Even though Los Angeles Jropped a 6-3 decision lo the St Louis Cardinals, third-place At anta is eight games behind the Dodgers.

Los Angeles Manager Walter Alston, like everyone else, is stumped by Sutton's sudden ineffectiveness. "You'll have to ask him," Alston said when asked what Sutton is doing wrong. But Sutton was non-commital after absorbing his fifth loss and third in a row. After he was knocked out he immediately went to the Dodger bullpen and threw for another 20 minutes. "I guess he was working on his control or some of his pitch- is." Alston explained. "At least," Alston added, 'we started hitting the ball a little better." The Dodgers, who stranded 25 runners the first game against St. Louis, banged out 10 hits. Trailing 6-1 after seven innings, the Dodgers got two runs back in the bottom of the eighth on a run-scoring double by Jimmy Wynn which was followed by a single by Steve Garvey. opened up with successive pinch hits, by Manny Mola and Von Joshua. But Bill Russell grounded into a double play and Wynn struck out to end the flurry. Joe Torre sparked the Cardinals' It-hit attack with a two- run home run. He drove in three runs for the game. He drove in a run in the first inning with an infieldout and then powered his homer in the third, with Bake McBricle aboard. It was Torre's fifth homer of the season and second, of the series. ! The Dodgers cut the deficit to hvo runs in the third against winner J o h n Curtis, now 4-6, when Garvey doubled home Wynn who was aboard with a fielder's choice. But the Cards opened a 5-1 lead in the fourth inning, chasing Button out of the game with a double and two more singles. They added a run in the sixth inning. Curtis singled and Brock drove a line drive to center that went for a triple when Wynn stumbled and fell as the ball rolled to the fence. Recovery Room's Special of Specials!
