GB ST. LOUIS (AP) - According o Montreal Manager Gene Mauch, there's still little to noose among six clubs in the Dast Division of the National League.

N Johnson Acquired MILWAUKEE -- The Mi waukee Brewers acquired ve eran first baseman-outfielde Deeron Johnson from t h Oakland A's for slightly ove the $25,000 waiver price. Maunch's third - place Expos, shut down it not out by the second-place St. Louis Cardinals for two nights, proved the point. Hal Breeder's first homer revived them from a 2-fl deficit on a perfect, sunny afternoon, and the Expos went on to win 4-2. "We played awful good base- bal Itoday," Mauch said. Before arising, the Expos and starter Ernie McAnally let the Cards slip in front on a walk, hit batsman, Jim Dwyer's single and Ken Reitz' run-scoring grounder. Breeden, however, rode a John Curtis fast ball over the fence in left-center to trim the deficit to 2-1 in the sixth. Bob Bailey's home run two innings later forged a 2-2 tie, chasing Curtis, and four singles in the ninth off reliever Al Hrabosky, 1-1, won it. Two of the late heroes were Barry Foote, whose pinch single ignited the winning burst, and Ron Hunt. "It wasn't easy to not play him," Mauch said in respect to Foote, the · club's 22-year-old catcher, "because he hit a home run off Curtis the last time we played here." Hunt followed Foote'i hit with a bloop single to right after faking a bunt, and Tim Foli and Ken Singleton followed with the run-producing hits. "I tried to top it/but it didn't work out," Hunt said of his key blow. "It came down right, though." The opinion was echoed by chagrined Cards Manager Red Schoendienst, whose three pitchers were riddled for 15 hits. "He couldn't have thrown the ball and put it in a better place," Schoendienst lamented. Sandra Haynie Wins Ladies i PGA Crown SUTTON, Mass. (AP) _ ·andra Haynie, the second lighesl money winner in wom- ens pro golf history, probably never will forget the 17th hole at Pleasant Valley Country Club. But she can smile about t now as the 20!h Ladies PGA champion.

"This K truly a championship golf course, but I'll think of Jial hole for a long while," Wiss Haynie said. "That hole las cost me two tournaments here and it came close to doing it again." Nursing a oneslroke lead entering the final round, she teed off in the rain and birdied three of the first four holes. She added another on the llth green and was six strokes ahead of runnerup JoAnne Garner, a playing partner. Then she picked up bogeys on She 13th and 16th greens, but there still appeared to be no danger as she headed for t h e 17th tee with a six-stroke lead Then she drove into rough near a tree, chipped out and sent her third shot into a bank inches shy ol water. She eventually settled for a double bogey six and a two-stroke lead. Miss Haynie got par on the ast hole and finished with her third consecutive regulation 73 after a first-round 69. She col lected $7.000 for her 31st tour victory less than three weeks after her 31st birthday. Miss Haynie, the'1965 LPGA champion, boosted her earning; for the year to $44,000.
